A guide to identifying, nurturing and growing our insight and creativity for more effective thinking.

 

We know that our minds are capable of great things because, every now and then, they come out with a brilliant idea or two. However, our minds are also unpredictable, spending large stretches of time idling or distracting themselves. This is a book about how to optimize these beautiful yet fitful instruments so that they can more regularly and generously produce the sort of insights and ideas we need to fulfill our potential and achieve the contentment we deserve.

Among other things, we learn how to grasp fragile and flighty thoughts before they disappear through anxiety and fear; at what times of day to try to work and for how long; how to make use of our boredom and instincts; and how to overcome timid and predictable approaches to the largest problems. The result is an operating manual to that most wondrous, though intermittent and always baffling, organ: the human mind.


*A NOTE ABOUT PRE-ORDERS
Please note that pre-order items are currently not in stock and will be shipped to you as soon as they arrive at the shop. This may be before or after the expected release date, as it takes time for our shipments to arrive and publication dates are sometimes delayed.
If your order includes both in-stock and pre-order items, your entire order will be shipped once the pre-order arrives. If you would like the in-stock items to be shipped immediately instead of being held, please place a separate order.
