    What happens if the passion is not pointed in the right direction? It can be as destructive as it is productive. In short, if you don't, your passion will start controlling you and that can be disastrous. The author shows us how to manage passion so that we give our best in whatever we do.

    Steve and Brad did it again! The Passion Paradox, like Peak Performance, combines real-life experiences with the latest scientific research to give insight on some of the world’s greatest athletes, artists, entrepreneurs, businessmen/women, and more. This time, the duo tackles the loaded concept of passion, diving into the roots of the word, offering valuable examples across a multitude of fields, and challenging many of society’s assumptions about what it means and takes to be passionate. A recommended read for all those interested in pursuing their passions in a healthy, fulfilling, and sustainable way.

    This was a strong 3.5/5, I learned some really good things but this book is pretty forgettable for the most part. Repeating the same shit over and over.

  4. Nicole says:

    This book was not entertaining, and didn't really offer anything new. Skip it.

  5. Kourtney Morris says:

    Wow. This was the book I needed to read and it’s a book I want all my friends and family to read. It is incredibly thought provoking and written in a way that isn’t bogged down with science and research but feels very real like a conversation.

    Wisdom for All

    I had this book on my radar after thoroughly enjoying Peak Performance. The authors have created another excellent work here. The research and advice that they present is very insightful and is unlike other books I’ve read on high performance and single-minded pursuits of excellence. The prose is very clean and direct. There is something here for everybody, no matter where your interests lie.

    Some very interesting thinking/concepts coming out of this book.
    I've never really though about passion as an addiction, and that the negative impact passion could have.
    They draw the parallels between passion and balance, but just having the one towards either side is also not great.

    The format of the book was great for the content getting delivered.
    I listened to the audiobook, and it was a pleasant listen.

    I've read/listened to quite a few books of people getting used as case studies in this book. Like Finding Ultra, Revised and Updated Edition: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the World's Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself (about Rich Roll ) and other athletes/people mentioned. So it was great to have that context, and being able to tie the bigger picture into this specific area of passion.
    I've also listened to Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams which ties in very well with a part in this book about the balance between stress and rest, and how to avoid burning out.

    This book didn't come across as self-help. Which is refreshing.
    One of those books where it is easy to recommend as the more you know..

    I quite enjoyed this relatively short dive into a topic I've never really considered that seriously. I'm not what anyone would describe as passionate about much and while that's still true, there was quite a bit I took away from this book. I especially liked the discussion on passion vs balance which mostly changed my previous opinion on the debate. I also liked the format which referenced quite a few other books and gave both theoretical and practical arguments on the topic of passion.

    The reason this isn't rated better though is that apart from one or two ideas, I pretty much knew and agreed with most of the information contained here. That's not to say that I didn't appreciate the reminder of some of the aspects you tend to lose sight of when you're going through everyday life. Also, having that existing information framed through the lens of passion was quite illuminating on a few occasions and made me think more critically of how I'm going about my interests.

    The writing was thankfully direct and clear as well. There wasn't the usual amount of fluff you tend to get in these self-help type books and I didn't notice any repetition of ideas. The audiobook narrator was also really good and made the whole experience a pleasant one. However, on a slightly unfair note, the repetition of the word passion did get a bit much at times. So from my side, this is a 3.5 that I'm happy to round up. There's a lot of sensible, practical advice and well thought out arguments on the topic. Being so short and to-the-point, it's hard not to recommend as well.

    I’m disappointed in this book because I enjoyed Peak Performance, and was able to take away useful tidbits of information that I semi-successfully integrated into my life. I was hoping this book would focus mostly on sports examples but it ended up being more like any other generic self-help book I’ve read (and in fact, referenced quite a few of those). And like many of those books, pretty much everything you need to know is in the title/subtitle. So I can’t say I found anything particularly novel or insightful here. Maybe a sign I should stop reading these?

  10. Colin Russell says:

    The authors do a great job of talking about what “passion” even is, the biological constructs that create it, and how it can be a force of both positive and negative change in your life. Even better: their practical advice on what you can do to curate your own passion for positivity is easy to follow.
