Publisher's Summary

Imagine unleashing your creativity by enjoying the benefits of the type of mental play that helped inspire the theory of relativity. Or evaluating your business climate with the keen observation and open mind that yielded the theory of evolution. The individuals behind these revolutions of thought live on in our collective memory as models for tackling the challenges that lie ahead. The cognitive gap that separates your mind and theirs is smaller than you think, and it can be bridged by passion, focus, and strategy, all of which are yours to develop. In Discover Your Genius, Michael J. Gelb draws upon the wellspring of history's most revolutionary minds, guiding you to unleash your own creativity through mental play. Searching for the most world-shaking ideas, discoveries, and innovations, Gelb assembled a "genius dream team" comprised of Plato, Filippo Brunelleschi, Christopher Columbus, Nicolaus Copernicus, Queen Elizabeth I, William Shakespeare, Thomas Jefferson, Charles Darwin, Mahatma Gandhi, and Albert Einstein. Each of these individuals embody a special "genius" characteristic that you are invited to integrate into daily life. Through fascinating, accessible biographies, you'll develop a personal relationship with each of these geniuses, and learn how to use his or her guiding principle to enrich the quality of your life.
