From The Rise of Superman via YouTube:

The final video of series celebrates the book’s launch by exploring the core message: Flow is a path that anyone can take toward accelerated learning, increased focus and higher performance.

Flow hackers including explorer Mike Horn, photographer Chase Jarvis, and athletes Robbie Maddison and Danny Way use their insights to bridge the gap between the extreme and the mainstream.

“Flow is ubiquitous,” The Rise of Superman author Steven Kotler says in the video. “It shows up in every population all across the world, but action and adventure sports athletes have gotten better at accessing the state, bringing it on more reliably and repeatedly than anybody else.”

Photographer Chase Jarvis summarizes the message of The Rise of Superman. “Flow can fundamentally transform education. It can fundamentally transform the way we approach business. When you start to think about the culture that we want to live in, why is that we as a culture haven’t yet shifted to put this science at the forefront?”
