Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mindshift is essential reading for anyone seeking a reboot,reset, or reinvention. As Oakley trots around the globe and across disciplines, she explains the power of taking a 'pi' approach to your career, why worriers often get ahead, why negative traits can house hidden advantages, and why it's smarter to broaden your passion than follow it. Jammed with inspiring stories and practical tips, Mindshift is a book that can change your life."
-- Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

"Significant change is possible. With those four hopeful words, Barbara Oakley opens the door to an entirely new way of seeing and reaching our potential. Don't hesitate,it matters."
--Seth Godin, bestselling author of Linchpin

"Brace yourself: This book will change your entire perception of what you thought was possible. Barbara Oakley will make you realize that you can change and change quite profoundly by making just a few tweaks to how you learn, and she will show how these methods are becoming increasingly available to everyone. Upgrade your mind, upgrade your life, with this book."
--Scott Barry Kaufman, scientific director of the Imagination Institute and coauthor of Wired to Create: Unravelling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind

"The message of Mindshift is utterly convincing you can learn, change, and grow, often far more than you can imagine. Read, learn, and enjoy!"
--Francisco Ayala, University of California, Irvine, Former President and Chairman of the Board of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, author most recently of Evolution, Explanation, Ethics, and Aesthetics. Towards a Philosophy of Biology.
