Editorial Reviews

Review

Advance praise for Tinker Dabble Doodle Try

“[Srini] Pillay’s effortless writing style, combined with an excellent balance of popular psychology and self-help, makes this a helpful read for those who enjoy a light dive into psychology with practical applications.”Library Journal

“Any reader will be bound to find more than a few useful [suggestions]. . . . Pillay cites an intriguing range of brain studies to support his argument, and his case studies of individuals with whom he has worked provide useful insights.”Kirkus Reviews

“At a time when outsmarting AI means becoming more innovate and creative, who better to guide than Dr. Srini Pillay. In this heartfelt book Pillay uses his own experience and insights as a physician, psychiatrist, counselor, and musician to profoundly speak to the way we live our lives and narrate a way of being that will bring all of us to use our ‘beautiful brain.’ A must-read for anyone determined to be inspiring, reflective and dynamic.”—Lynda Gratton, professor of management practice, London Business School
 
“I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to accomplish more by doing less. It shows why relentless focus and a cultish adherence to overwork are counterproductive. And it explains how innovation and insight—true markers of success in our new working reality—are more in our control than we might think. Read Tinker Dabble Doodle Try to strengthen both your ability and your resolve to slack-off, strategically.”—Christine Carter, Ph.D., author of The Sweet Spot

“Dr. Srini Pillay offers a brilliant, deeply researched, and even more deeply imagined blueprint for using one’s full mental armamentarium, conscious, unconscious, and all the undiscovered rest! A fantastic book!”—Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., co-author of Delivered from Distraction
  
“Dr. Pillay’s new book will help you create a new, fun, more playful destiny and unlock your brain’s inner potential.”—Daniel G. Amen, M.D., co-author of The Brain Warrior’s Way
 
“This book not only gives you license to step off the hamster wheel of focus, focus, focus, but it will show you how to strategically and productively do so.”—JJ Virgin, author of JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet
 
“This brilliant book shows how to manipulate your brain to alternate between intense concentration and deliberate mind-wandering. You’ll solve problems more quickly and experience more satisfaction in life.”—Mark Robert Waldman, co-author of How God Changes Your Brain
 
“Cognitive rest is the new exercise! Tinker Dabble Doodle Try is great medicine for those who have long suspected that multitasking and always being on the go aren’t all they are cracked up to be.”—Sara Gottfried M.D., author of The Hormone Cure
 
“The story of how the brain takes the 'ingredients' of our lives and spins them into new ideas, innovations, and creative inspirations is one of the most fascinating narratives I have read in some time.”—John Assaraf, author of Having It All
