"Dave Gray has taken the brilliantly simple germ of an idea (how to think across the borders of belief) and written it into a potent virus. Dave's timing couldn't be better. As the world slips again into splintered conflicts of belief, I hope and pray his virus spreads.”

"In the best sense of the word, this is popularization of the obvious, of the space between things, of seeing things you've always seen but never seen and pulling them into your own personal library, for getting through the morass, the flotsam and jetsam of all the stuff that's around us"

"Liminal Thinking is a book about how to be mentally healthy, how to be present, and how to be a positive force in the world. But more simply, and more importantly, it's a book about how to be."
—Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human
