How to Think Like Einstein

Hint: You've got to break your rules

Creative Thinking Blog


How to Think Like Einstein explores how our own rules about what is true and how the world works prevent us from creating solutions to our most pressing problems. Just as Einstein was able to solve some of the greatest mysteries in the universe when he broke the very practical rules of Newtonian physics, you can solve even the hardest problem by breaking your own rules.

Of course, this is never easy to do. The rules in your head look just like reality. They really aren't. Instead they obscure viable ideas that could change your life.

How to Think Like Einstein, Second Edition is scheduled for release this fall.
