In Unsafe Thinking, creativity guru Jonah Sachs demonstrates that the most remarkable and trailblazing individuals – from the Google programmer who disobeyed his managers in order to revolutionise the world’s email systems, to the mayor who employed mime artists to transform his city's traffic problem – are those who dramatically reject the lure of what they know. He draws on cutting-edge psychology and neuroscience to uncover the specific mental habits that account for the success of those who break the mould. And he reveals how, by embracing a handful of simple brain-hacks and cognitive tools, we can all harness the power of the unsafe thinkers.
By revealing the secrets of those who reject our society’s outmoded approach to work, Unsafe Thinking promises to unleash the hidden power of creativity in all of us.
