Many people will find this book a bit odd, due to its style and content. The authors hope so. Throughout the book, different fonts, different-colored pages and startling design choices force readers to change perspectives. These graphic disunities metaphorically underscore the need for new viewpoints and curiosity. Consultants Steven D’Souza and Diana Renner want to inspire. They draw on myriad disciplines to illustrate the necessity and value of not knowing. getAbstract recommends their entertaining treatise to anyone seeking new routes to knowledge, creativity, spirituality and greater productivity.
In this summary, you will learn
- How knowledge can be dangerous,
- What reaching the limits of knowledge means and
- Why the unknown is worth exploring.
