FROM THE BOOK COVER
Exclusively rational approaches to decision making and problem solving are inadequate in our increasingly complex world. Intuition can provide a crucial edge, enhancing our ability to discover, create, predict, and evaluate. "The Intuitive Edge" shows how to make the most of our natural--but tragically neglected--intuitive powers.
Developing and focusing this extra-rational faculty will expand your mental capacities, enhance your creativity, and help you to become more insightful, confident, and decisive. You will be better equipped to understand yourself and your world.
Goldberg illuminates the most controversial questions surrounding intuition: When can we trust it? How does it relate to logic and reason? Are women and children more intuitive? Are dreams, flashes of insight, and hunches significant intuitive experiences? Is intuition the same as ESP? Can it be "found" in any one part of the brain? How can we maximize our intuitive powers? His answers are drawn from a wide range of disciplines and from firsthand experiences of leading scientists, philosophers, psychologists, artists, writers, and executives who attribute their successes to intuitive breakthroughs.
At the heart of The Intuitive Edge is the essential message that we must strike the critical balance between rational thinking and intuition. In achieving this our every thought and every action will resonate with deeper truth.
