"The Plateau Effect is a powerful law of nature that affects everyone. Learn to identify plateaus and break through any stagnancy in your life-- from diet and exercise, to work, to relationships. The Plateau Effect shows how athletes, scientists, therapists, companies, and musicians around the world are learning to break through their plateaus--to turn off the forces that cause people to "get used to" things--and turn on human potential and happiness in ways that seemed impossible. The book identifies three key flattening forces that generate plateaus, two principles to guide readers in engineering a plateau's destruction, and three actions to take to achieve peak behavior. It helps us to stop wasting time on things that are no longer of value and to focus on the things that leverage our time and energy in spectacular ways. Anything you want to do better--play guitar, make friends, communicate with your children, run a business--you can accomplish faster by understanding the plateau effect"-- Provided by publisher.

I found this to be an amazing book! When a book is educational and entertaining at the same time what more could one ask for? The authors have taken a simple problem, applicable to all spheres of life, the plateau effect. What is it? It is the failure which inevitably follows a period of success. The authors have mentioned a complex reason for it, and solved it using Mathematics, in simple layman's language. What made the book particularly readable for me is the sense of humor with which the authors have presented their explanations. I'm all agog to apply the 'plateau effect's busting' in my life and benefit from it.
