Stealing Fire: by Steven Kotler | Conversation Starters
In “Stealing Fire”, readers are introduced to a strange perspective that examines the successes and strategies of modern giants like Elon Musk and teams like the Green Berets. The author attempts to connect these individuals and organizations by detailing their common threads—which all, to some extent, involve “altered states”. The novel draws on the practical accomplishments of many individuals, detailing them alongside suggestions that seeking a peak state of performance is the key to success.
Steven Kotler delivers “Stealing Fire” with a strikingly unorthodox voice, examining the history of seeking altered states of mind and how things such as environment and drugs may help achieve coveted levels of insight and innovation. Chosen by CNBC and Strategy + Business as a Best Business Book of 2017, Kotler’s novel aims to shed light on altered states and their significance in business and innovation.
