The first book of its kind, Peak Performance combines the inspiring stories of top performers across a range of capabilities - from athletic, to intellectual, to artistic - with the latest scientific insights into the cognitive and neurochemical factors that drive performance in all domains. In doing so, Peak Performance uncovers new linkages that hold promise as performance enhancers but have been overlooked in our traditionally-siloed ways of thinking.

Reviewed: 2018-03-09

This book is titled peak performance but spends all of its time talking about burn out and stress, NOT peak performance.

Authors do not have skin in the game. So it's just observational insights and a mashup of old research.

People reading this book will become more balanced. Not better at peak performance.
