  • In this wise and persuasive book, Leonard Mlodinow calls for a change in the very way we think. Using a deft mix of science and storytelling, he shows the limits of linear thinking and the promise of 'bottom up' thinking that embraces ambiguity, asks the shrewd questions, and pursues novel answers to complex problems. Elastic is a book that will help you survive the whirlwind

  • In a world in which advancing technologies, omnipresent social media, and fiery political landscapes can make us feel helpless and paralyzed, Leonard Mlodinow shows us how our most humanly traits such as novelty seeking, need for routine, and free range imagination have uniquely prepared us to thrive in an increasingly complex and ever changing world. Most importantly, in this groundbreaking book, Mlodinow shows us how to make the best use of our most basic human tendencies to find true happiness and success
