內容簡介

「雷納‧曼羅迪諾會讓你變得更聰明」─賽斯•麥克法蘭,美國知名喜劇演員

「一本很厲害又實用的書,說明大腦運作的方式,適合好奇心重或者任何正在面對改變的人」賽斯‧高汀,《有機會,拚就對了!》作者

人類天生就討厭改變,作者曼羅迪諾說明人類討厭的是改變引發的痛苦,但不巧的是,現在的世界每分每秒都在改變,這本書就是在說明人類大腦如何面對改變,並且教讀者如何讓大腦更舒適地面對、處理變化。

曼羅迪諾說明,人類的大腦經過時間演變,發展出一種他稱做「Elastic Thinking」的認知模式,這種模式包括好奇心、不尋常接受度的傾向、想像力、產生想法、分歧和歸納想法等。

這種模式轉化了社會和文化中的常規,也就是讓歷史知名的發明家找到創世紀發明的關鍵,也是將爆米花和Pokemon Go帶進人類生活中的幫手。

曼羅迪諾是多本暢銷書的作者,包括《醉漢走路》、《科學大歷史》等,他在本書中再次給予讀者面對快速變化的世界,最好的適應工具。

From the best-selling author of Subliminal and The Drunkard's Walk, a groundbreaking new look at the neuroscience of change—and how elastic thinking can help us thrive in a world changing faster than ever before.
 

With rapid technological innovation leading the charge, today’s world is transforming itself at an extraordinary and unprecedented pace. As jobs become more multifaceted, as information streams multiply, and as myriad devices place increasing demands on our attention, we are confronted every day with a plethora of new challenges. Fortunately, as Leonard Mlodinow shows, the human brain is uniquely engineered to adapt.

Drawing from cutting-edge research in neuroscience and psychology, Mlodinow takes us on a fascinating and illuminating journey through the mechanics of our own minds as we navigate the rapidly shifting landscapes around us. Out of the exploratory instincts that allowed our ancestors to prosper hundreds of thousands of years ago, humans developed a cognitive style that Mlodinow terms elastic thinking, a collection of traits and abilities that include neophilia (an affinity for novelty), schizotypy (a tendency toward unusual perception), imagination and idea generation, pattern recognition, mental fluency, divergent thinking, and integrative thinking. These are the qualities that enabled innovators from Mary Shelley to Miles Davis, from the inventor of jumbo-sized popcorn to the creator of the modern grocery store, and from Nike to Pokemon Go to effect paradigm shifts in our culture and society. And they’re the qualities that will enable each of us to succeed, personally and professionally, in the radically changing environments of today.

With his keen acumen and rapid-fire wit, Mlodinow gives us the essential tools to harness the power of elastic thinking in an endlessly dynamic world.
