By Simon J. Anderson on August 29, 2011
Format: Hardcover
In his new book, "Higher Unlearning," Jack Uldrich presents some powerful examples of how important unlearning is both to our personal and professional lives. Even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, we too often only see what we expect to see and follow our (quite often incorrect) intuition. As advancements in technology accelerate, following the principles set forth in "Higher Unlearning" will only become more and more important. I think this book is a must-read for people in all walks of life, from corporate executives to entrepreneurs to people just beginning their careers.

Throughout the book the author offers eye-opening examples and even "homework assignments" that immediately help you see how critical it is to have an open mind and recognize the need to unlearn. I have definitely become more aware of the many "facts" I took for granted, but actually need to unlearn, since reading this book!

Read this book and you will not be disappointed- and more importantly- after applying even just a few of the lessons in the book, you will be surprised by both what you thought you knew that was actually wrong, and what you didn't even know you didn't know!

When told to Think Outside the Box, I've never questioned the correctness of what was inside the box. I assumed what I knew was correct and I all I needed to do was apply it in new and innovating ways.

Jack Uldrich makes me look at my assumed knowledge and recognize that all I know may not be true. Therefore, before looking outside the box, look inside the box. Toss out old misinformation and assumptions; restock it with, amoung other things, the ability to:
-- Accept failure as a good thing;
-- Question what you believe to be true; and
-- Realize as a mentor to younger people, you, too, can be well mentored by a younger
person.

This book is a fast read, if you don't stop to contemplate all the implications of the 39 points made in the book. So, read it through once, then go back and read it again, and again. It's well worth it.

Jack's book does not just challenge many of your preconceptions, it completely demolishes them, with the ease of a skilled logician who is also a stage magician. Now you think you know something... now you don't. And then you realize that maybe you should not have to start with. Critical thinking skills are taught by eloquent example.

Not only that, but you are entertained in the process. The ideas are presented in brief, well-thought-out chapters that do not indulge in dry discussions of overly-abstract concepts or profession-specific vocabulary. He gives historical examples to illustrate each point and manages to explain them in terms anyone can understand. In fact it is (amazingly, considering the subject matter) a very light and breezy read.

In these days of accelerated growth of human knowledge, unlearning is an essential skill if you hope to cope with change. And I know of no better primer on the subject than this book.

Although it forced me to think, I enjoyed every bit of it and found myself wanting more. That is the highest recommendation I can give.
