A guide to greater productivity, insight, and creativity, from The School of Life.

We know that our minds are capable of great things because, every now and then, they come out with a brilliant idea or two. However, our minds are also unpredictable, spending large stretches of time idling or distracting themselves.

This is a book about how to optimise these beautiful yet fitful instruments so that they can more regularly and generously produce the sort of insights and ideas we need to fulfil our potential and achieve the contentment we deserve. The result is an operating manual to that most wondrous, though intermittent and always baffling, organ: the human mind.
