One of my favorite and most admired authors is Steven Kotler.  Has authored  “Tomorrowland“, “Bold“, “The Rise of Superman” and “Abundance” just to name a few.  He is a prolific writer and author.

I recently had the pleasure to discuss with him his new book entitled “Stealing Fire-How Silicon Valley, the Navy Seals, and Mavericks Scientists Are Revolutionizing the Way We Live and Work.” 

In our interview together we explore the revolution that is occurring in society today, and shortcuts that are being used to boost insight and inspiration which results in creating alters states of consciousness, thus improving personal performance. Steven and his co-author Jamie Wheal have spent four years investigating the leading edges of this revolution, from interviews with the Navy Seals, Green Berets and attending Burning Man they have compiled the stories and information in their new book “Stealing Fire”.

Steven states that this revolution is spreading into the mainstream, fueling a trillion dollar underground economy and forcing us to rethink how we can lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives.  In our interview, we discuss recent advances in psychology, neurobiology, pharmacology, and technology are driving this phenomenon which allows us to move past myths, assumptions, and controversies and embrace peak performances as men and women.

As you will find out when you read “Stealing Fire” the quest to attain these alter states of consciousness have been going on since 415BC. To this day the rituals, techniques, and drugs used to attain these altered states of consciousness are changing and the effects are much more powerful.  I know you are going to love this interview with author Steven Kotler about his new book “Stealing Fire

This is my fourth interview with author Steven Kotler, and his books just keep getting better.  His new release Tomorrowland Our Journey from Science Fiction to Science Fact is a series of essays and in-depth investigation into the inventions and technologies that are rapidly changing our world forever.  He really does provide us with the pivotal moments when science fiction become science fact.  Steven takes us on a personal guided tour of the mind-bending far frontier, and how these advances are radically transforming our lives for the better.

In our interview together we discuss everything from the new advancements in bionics to artificial vision that is allowing people without vision to see well enough to drive a car.  We talk about nuclear fission, the future of space, flying cars and everything in between.

I hope you will take a few minutes out of your day to listen to author Steven Kotler one of the thought leaders when it comes to technology and its impact on society.

Steven Kotler is also the co-founder of “The Flow Genome Project” an international organization dedicated to mapping the genome of flow and open sourcing it to everyone by 2020.
