Truly original minds capitalize when everyone else struggles, and many of us assume that these abilities are innate, reserved for a select few. Here the author of The Drunkard's Walk reveals that we all possess them, that we all have encoded in our brains a skill he terms elastic thinking—and he guides us in how to harness it. Drawing on groundbreaking research, Leonard Mlodinow outlines how we can learn to let go of comfortable ideas and become accustomed to ambiguity and contradiction; how we can rise above conventional mindsets and reframe the questions we ask; and how we can improve our ability to solve problems and generate new ideas, all critical skills for achieving professional and personal success in our quickly morphing world.
