Steven Kotler and Jamie Wheal have produced one of the quintessential biohacking books of our time. “Stealing Fire” focuses on achieving flow through hacking consciousness. Whether it be kiteboarding, meditation, psychedelics, Burning Man, isolation tanks, sky diving or tDCS brain zapping. They share with us tons of current research and ancient practices. It is all condensed into bite size quality stories which makes for a fast read. I read this book twice in three days.
New York Times bestselling author Steven Kotler and high performance expert Jamie Wheal spent four years investigating the leading edges of this revolution—from the home of SEAL Team Six to the Googleplex, the Burning Man festival, Richard Branson’s Necker Island, Red Bull’s training center, Nike’s innovation team, and the United Nations’ Headquarters. And what they learned was stunning: In their own ways, with differing languages, techniques, and applications, every one of these groups has been quietly seeking the same thing: the boost in information and inspiration that altered states provide.
