Book Review: No Limits: The Art and Science of High Performance -by Mukesh Bansal

Book Blurb:

Tech entrepreneur Mukesh Bansal has been a lifelong student of human performance optimisation. He has studied the science behind it, and worked closely with high performers across business, sports and entertainment, to understand what it takes to transcend apparent limitations and achieve true potential.

Through his entrepreneurial experience and studying the field of health and fitness, Bansal came to understand the enormous power of plasticity: the ability of the human brain to rewire itself at will as we develop new skills. He also realised that high performers across domains rely on common tools that were embraced by ancient wisdom and are validated by modern science. Knowing that high performance is not a matter of genetics or luck is highly empowering.

No Limits distils Bansal’s findings on talent, deliberate practice, mindset, habit, willpower and learning. It is a guide to maximising one’s potential with well-defined strategies. So, no matter what you do, you can be a superior version of yourself, performing at increasingly better levels, constantly reaching higher.

Review:

Should I be talking about the book first or the fact that all the proceeds collected from the book will go towards supporting athletes who aspire for Olympics 2020 and 2024.

The Curefit Master, Mukesh has delivered an exceptional book that talks about performance optimisation. With the right use of body and mind, humans can achieve almost anything, hence the title “No Limits”.

The book is divided in four parts: Before we dive in (an introduction to self and the journey lived), Science and Foundation (talking about the mind and body), Tools of the Trade (habits, mindset and learnings of life) and finally, From theory to action (talking about productivity, creativity and ultimate purpose). This book is such a well balanced read that at times you actually put it down, take time to process and then move onto next topic.

Every chapter is filled with small anecdotes, performance hacks, cheat sheets. The book has been wonderfully crafted and could deliver efficiently, partly because the author himself seems to be a student, a student who wants to impart his knowledge to the coming generation of entrepreneurs.

No Limits is a well researched book which emerges out of a genuine intent. It is not just philosophy, it includes science, statistics and a lot of personal inputs. Compared to other self help books, it is much easier to read because of the simple language and effective techniques.

This book is for everyone, the simplicity of language and all inclusiveness of the content makes it even more appealing to every kind of reader. Given the fact, that it written by a successful entrepreneur, the learnings become even more authentic. I will definitely recommend this book to all the people out there who want to read a good ‘Self help’ book.
