Drawing on interviews from high achievers from the worlds of sport, business and beyond, the book of the highly successful podcast High Performance details the nine hidden rules to success and how we can all implement them in our daily lives

Unlock the secrets of high performance.

As one of Britain's best-respected sports presenters, Jake Humphrey has witnessed first-hand the highs and lows of some of the most remarkable athletes on earth. And in his multi-million download podcast, High Performance, he teams up with Professor Damian Hughes to examine the secrets of the world's highest-performing people - in sport, in business and in life.

Now, Jake and Damian reveal how we can all become high performers. Drawing on interviews with leading sportspeople and entrepreneurs, they uncover the nine hidden principles that drive high performers to success: from taking absolute responsibility for their situation, to working out their non-negotiable 'trademark behaviours', to getting the very best out of their teammates. And they draw on cutting-edge psychology to explain why these methods have such a transformative impact.

Above all, Jake and Damian reveal how to build the principles of high performance into our own lives, whether on the pitch, in our careers, or at home.

You too can harness the secrets of high performance. This book explains how.

Drawing on interviews with: Ben Ainslie | Steven Bartlett | Lily Cole | Tom Daley | Rio Ferdinand | Steven Gerrard | Kelly Holmes | Steph Houghton | Chris Hoy | Eddie Jones | Kelly Jones | Siya Kolisi | Frank Lampard | Jo Malone | Matthew McConaughey | Ant Middleton | Tracey Neville | Phil Neville | Robin Van Persie | Nims Purja | Mauricio Pochettino | Jonny Wilkinson | Clive Woodward | and many more . . .
