Summary

What if everything we think we know about how the world works - our ideas of love, education, spirituality, work, happiness, and love - are based on brules (bullsh*t rules) that get passed from generation to generation and are long past their expiration date?
This book teaches you to think like some of the greatest nonconformist minds of our era, to question, challenge, hack, and create new rules for your life so you can define success on your own terms.
The Code of the Extraordinary Mind is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is mostly decided not by rational choice but instead by conditioning and habit. And thus most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything - love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more - that they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.
But what if you could remove these outdated ideas and start anew? What would your life look like if you could forget the rules of the past and redefine what happiness, purpose, and success mean for you?
Not Just a Book but a Movement
Blending computational thinking, integral theory, modern spirituality, evolutionary biology, and humor, personal growth entrepreneur Vishen Lakhiani provides a revolutionary 10-point framework for understanding and enhancing the human self. He developed this framework based on his personal experiences, the five million people he's reached through Mindvalley, and 200 hours of interviews and questions posed to incredible minds, including Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Peter Diamandis, Ken Wilber, Dean Kamen, Arianna Huffington, Michael Beckwith, and other legendary leaders.
The 10 Laws of an Extraordinary Life
In a unique fusion of cutting-edge ideas, personal stories, irreverence, and his brilliant teaching style, Lakhiani reveals the 10 powerful laws that form a step-by-step process that you can apply to life to shed years of struggle and elevate yourself to exceptional new heights. This book challenges conventional ideas of relationships, goal setting, mindfulness, happiness, and meaning. Lakhiani combines computational thinking with personal growth to provide a powerful framework for recoding yourself and replacing old, limiting models that hold you back with new, empowering beliefs and behaviors that set you on the path toward an extraordinary life - a life of more happiness and achievement than you might have dared to dream possible.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Confirmed what I already knew

A great book very worth the read. Only confirmed what I knew already as I have been researching so much of these topics already but I did learn some things and very much enjoyed how it was written and phrased. It was time and money well spent. I highly recommend this book.

It's not a book - it's an EXPERIENCE!

I have been following Vishen Lakhiani and Mindvalley for about two years now, bought and studied several courses, and I wasn't sure if I wanted or needed to buy this book, as I expected nothing 'new' from it. I have finished listening to it yesterday, and my feedback is that it is THE BEST WHOLESOME EXPERIENCE I have EVER had. It didn't contain any 'new' content for me, but the structure and presentation of Vishen's philosophy is solid and unique, breathtakingly exciting and as 'hands on' as it could possibly be. The 'holistic' presentation is AMAZING, I wish any personal development book would have so much background information and practical study options and courses as this work does. It is not a book, it is an experience, and as such even falls into two of the categories mentioned in the book, as it offers an experience and growth. It will be my standard present for all upcoming birthdays in the next year, as I believe it deserves to be read and experienced as much and as widely as possible.

So glad I took a chance on this!!

I bought this just by chance, since the title looked interesting. I had absolutely no knowledge of the author or any of his previous work.

WOW!!! I was absolutely blown away. This is one of the single greatest self improvement books I've ever read. It's one of the few books in general that I was actually SAD when it ended!!

Anything negative I could say about this book would be trite and trivial. Trust me, if you're looking to hack your life, this is a GREAT place to start!

Just a 10 hour advertisement for the $1000 program

What disappointed you about The Code of the Extraordinary Mind?

It's not truly a program or any sort of "help" book but is, instead, just an advertisement for the paid resources on the authors website. It's like a rap song. He spends the book saying how great and rich he is to gain some credibility to refer you to the paid programs on his website.

What could Vishen Lakhiani have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Offered some of the program, even a shortened version so I could learn something or try his ideas.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

It goes quickly, his voice is fine.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Code of the Extraordinary Mind?

Most of the anecdotal stories that seem to just be excuses to drop some names to impress the listener. Very little point in the constant stories of all the famous people he's met.

Any additional comments?

This is the most disappointing purchase I've made on Audible. I feel like I just spent the last 3 days in an Amway presentation.
