Our brain is our most powerful organ, and our mind is an astonishing thing. So why do we sometimes go off-piste?

The School of Life‘s Alain de Botton lays out for us a framework of cumulative thinking, directions for effort, and unlikely tools for cognitive improvement.

The book especially highlights the importance of such things as…

  • making time for cumulative thinking
  • not, however, trying to force it
  • working with, rather than in spite of, distractions
  • noting and making use of our irrationalities
  • taking what we think/do both seriously and lightly, at once
  • practising constructive self-doubt

The style is as clear and easy as you may have come to expect from Alain de Botton / The School of Life, and yet, its ideas are still likely to challenge every reader in some (good!) way.

Bottom line: if you would like what you think, say, do to be more meaningful, this book will help you to make the most of your abilities!
