This review is from: The Intuitive Compass: Why the Best Decisions Balance Reason and Instinct (Hardcover)
It's a rare treat to find a book that introduces a such a valuable and extremely practical tool, so simply and eloquently. Francis Cholle has, with admirable clarity, put into words something that most of us grapple with in confusion on a daily basis. The age-old tension between reason and intuition - logic and gut feeling - is something that we have developed little facility to evaluate and act upon. Usually, reason dominates and our powerful intuition is sidelined, often at huge expense. Similarly, we are conditioned to distrust play and focus on results, even though typically major breakthroughs emerge from the type of play described in this book. In getting to understand the Intuitive Compass, we can find the essential structure in these seeming intangibles. We can discover the central importance of play and intuition throughout our lives, and we can learn how to develop them in ways that will serve us far beyond what our reason can provide. This book feels like the beginning of an exciting and very rewarding learning process towards intuitive intelligence and a new kind of freedom. Thank you Francis Cholle. I want to know more!
