How high or far or fast can humans go? And what about individual potential: what defines a person's limits? From running a two-hour marathon to summiting Mount Everest, we're fascinated by the extremes of human endurance, constantly testing both our physical and psychological limits.In Endure, Alex Hutchinson, PhD, reveals why our individual limits may be determined as much by our heads and hearts as by our muscles.

Listen to this audio summary of  Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance by Alex Hutchinson. Blending cutting-edge science and gripping storytelling in the spirit of Malcolm Gladwell - who contributes the book’s foreword - award-winning journalist Alex Hutchinson reveals that a wave of paradigm-altering research over the past decade suggests the seemingly physical barriers you encounter as set as much by your brain as by your body.

For professional cyclists, going faster and winning are, of course, closely related. Yet surprisingly, for many, a desire to go faster is much more important than a desire to win. Someone who wants to go faster will work at the details and take small steps rather than focusing on winning. Winning just happens when you do everything right - it's the doing everything right that's hard. And that's what fascinates and obsesses Michael Hutchinson.

I purchased both the hard copy and the audio book. I'm not a reader generally but using the audio book the wealth of knowledge The Doc was sharing had me captivated.
I'm glad I have the hard copy for notes and so I can refer back to refresh my memory show others.
Thanks Doc.
