Holistic; Sustainable; Credible
Imagine and Your Brain at Work - brings together several disciplines to better understand behavior and insight.
Great at adding life to the stories through different accents and compelling story-telling.
No, needs to be spread out over time - deep messages that require deeper contemplation. Good to review chapters - this is a layered book best consumed in several iterations.
A thought-provoking book that looks at resilience from a very holistic perspective. A great read for corporate executives looking to increase their resilience and agility in the face of change. It's an equally great read for military and civic leaders hoping to spur cooperation in the face of terrorism or natural disasters. It strips individual and collective behavior to its core - the biological underpinnings of basic human emotions and their impact on trust and cooperation.
It shares some unique perspectives on the power of diversity and holistic thinking and why its is more sustainable and resilient than insular or tribal thinking. It gives us glimpses into rationalization in game theory outcomes, hypothesizes potential reasons for the failure of Wall Street tycoons to cooperative in the face of a global economic crisis, and inspires with stories about the power of crowd-sourcing in the face of natural disasters like Haiti.
Anyone who reads this book can't help but broaden their thinking. Despite deep dives into highly technical concepts such as mortgage-backed securities or biological diversity, I encourage readers to persevere - the reward is well worth the discomfort of the temporary mental gymnastics required to grasp these concepts and see how they are interconnected.
