About this deal

High performance is never just about one aspect, whether it be natural talent, luck, timing or hard work. On reflection I think I’d have got more out of using the time I spent reading this book (which was maybe four hours at most- it’s 200ish pages in quite large, widely spaced font) re-listening to my favourites episodes of the podcast. This book will appeal to you if you’re interested in how your brain works , or how to perform better, but you’ve never yet considered reading any books about the subject. I don't really enjoy self help books but if you're into that sort of thing and enjoy sports anecdotes this is for you. From 30% onwards, the book could have been a bullet point blog post about entirely obvious high performance habits.

High Performance reveals the methods the world's most remarkable athletes, coaches and entrepreneurs use to excel. Damian Hughes is an expert on high-performance sporting cultures and a visiting professor at Manchester Metropolitan University. He went on to front their Champions League fixtures until 2023, covering Champions League games and finals.The High Performance book was an enjoyable, inspirational book that does it’s best to inspire its readers. For a reader that is wanting to different perspectives of high performance (sport and business in the majority), certainly worth a read!

I enjoyed the tone of this book and the way that each chapter was a standalone lesson so you can easily pick the book up after time away and not need to 'follow' what was previously discussed. The only thing that jump out of the pages for me was that you have to own where you are and in the situation that you are in.

It’s actually reduced my work anxiety by helping me focus on what I can control and what I am good at.In 2011, he co-founded Whisper, one of Europe’s fastest growing independent production companies with over 100 staff. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.
