What's the fastest a human can run the 100-meter sprint?What's
the longest a human can hold his breath? What are the limits of
Until 1954, common wisdom and scientific knowledge considered a
sub-four-minute mile an impossible feat for a human. But then Roger
Bannister broke that mark, followed quickly by a host of other
athletes. Today the world record stands at 3 minutes, 43 seconds,
yet even that number doesn't tell the full story of how fast humans
can run a mile--records are a mark of how well people have done,
not how well they can do.
In this fascinating and thought-provoking book, John Brenkus
ventures across the sports world to provide an in-depth look at the
absolute limits of human performance. For years, coaches, pundits,
and experts have speculated about the extremes of human ability.
The Perfection Point finally provides the answers.
