In The Charisma Myth, Olivia Fox Cabane offered a groundbreaking approach to becoming more charismatic. Now she teams up with Judah Pollack to reveal how anyone can train their brain to have more eureka insights.
The creative mode in your brain is like a butterfly. It's beautiful and erratic, hard to catch, and highly valued as a result. If you want to capture it, you need a net. Enter the executive mode, the task-oriented network in your brain that helps you tie your shoes, run a meeting, or pitch a client. To succeed, you need both modes to work together - your inner butterfly to be active and free but your inner net to be ready to spring at the right time and create that "aha!" moment. But is there any way to trigger these insights, beyond dumb luck?
Thanks to recent neuroscience discoveries, we can now explain these breakthrough moments - and also induce them through a series of specific practices. It turns out there's a hidden pattern to all these seemingly random breakthrough ideas. From Achimedes' iconic moment in the bathtub to designer Adam Cheyer's idea for Siri, accidental breakthroughs throughout history share a common origin story. In this book you will learn to master the skills that will transform your brain into a consistent generator of insights.
Drawing on their extensive coaching and training practice with top Silicon Valley firms, Cabane and Pollack provide a step-by-step process for accessing the part of the brain that produces breakthroughs and systematically removing internal blocks. Their tactics range from simple to zany, such as:

I downloaded this Audio book, because was very interesting in Olivia Fox Cabane, But surprisingly had bad record quality. Many times jumping to another track like old scratched vinyl records. Sometimes even hard to understand.
Can I re download a better quality?
O yes, narrator as Olivia F. Cabane is very good.
"A must read for personal development"
I came across this book as I was reading an article and I'm so glad I did. The author have provided guidance not only for breakthrough thinking, but also for self confidence, self discipline. Personally Its a bonus for me to get a good understanding of brain activity which may come in handy helping my autistic son.
"high level thinkers"
I appreciate people who think for a long time before they start writing. And then write only the best ideas they had. Makes for a good read.
