Review:

"Many readers will be fascinated by their descriptions of such underlying matters as acclimation, flow and distortion mechanisms...well-written and entertaining." "Kirkus Reviews"
"The authors write in clear, engaging and sometimes irreverent prose as they dart across case studies from Amazon to Zappos...a stimulating read, offering some inventive theories and solutions." -"Financial Times"
Sullivan and Thompson have identified a phenomenon that plagues us all, robbing us of energy, delight, and successful results. Poignant stories, intriguing information, and insightful advice make this a must-read for any of us that want easier ways to keep the important fires lit. Warning: they ve nailed stuff close to home for all of us!
David Allen, author of "Getting Things Done"
Uncovering forces like The Greedy Algorithm that create plateaus in our lives is a great service, but Bob Sullivan and Hugh Thompson go much further. Their book is an entertaining and valuable guide that will show you how to quit the struggle and get up off the ground.
Daniel H. Pink, author of "A Whole New Mind"
The science behind how we can learn to excel at almost anything we care about by retraining our brains. A stimulating and "useful"handbook.
Daniel J. Levitin, author of "This Is Your Brain on Music"

Read this book now.
Ori Brafman, coauthor of "Sway"
