Publisher's summary

Neuroscience-proven guidelines to think, act, and become smarter ASAP. It’s not what you know, it’s how you think.

You’ve been fooled before. You’ve missed things. You’ve been slow on the uptake, and others have passed you by. Radically transform your thinking for both speed and accuracy.

Think quickly on your feet to solve problems, overcome obstacles, and win arguments.

Practical Intelligence is not a common "think smarter" book. No, it starts from biological bases of analytical thinking, and how we can re-program ourselves for deep insight. This audiobook provides real, actionable tool after tool, because smart thinking is all about how, and not why or what. The bottom line is that you’ll be able to apply this audiobook’s thinking models immediately, until they become habit.

Better decision-making, smarter reasoning, and greater mental clarity.

Peter Hollins has studied psychology and peak human performance for over a dozen years and is a best-selling author. He has worked with a multitude of individuals to unlock their potential and path towards success. His writing draws on his academic, coaching, and research experience.

Learn to ask the intelligent questions, draw insight, and analyze situations.

  • How the body and brain must work together for quick thinking.
  • What it truly means to think deeply and analyze.
  • How to think about your thinking, and the obstacles that short circuit your good intentions.

Science-based techniques to train your brain for optimal performance.

  • Mental models for optimal decision-making.
  • How to train your brain for speed.
  • Tips for divergent and creative thinking - generating ideas.

Never get fooled again and find the truth in situations quickly.

At first glance, most things seem fine. And maybe ignorance is bliss. But to think clearly, deeply, quickly, and effectively - you’ll discover just how much of your life you have been missing, for better or worse.

Think, act, and become smarter starting today.
