Description
"Celebrates the benefits that messiness has in our lives: why it's important, why we resist it, and why we should embrace it instead. Using research from neuroscience, psychology, social science, as well as ... examples of real people doing extraordinary things, Tim Harford [posits] that the human qualities we value--creativity, responsiveness, resilience--are integral to the disorder, confusion, and disarray that produce them. In Messy, you’ll learn about the unexpected connections between creativity and mess; understand why unexpected changes of plans, unfamiliar people, and unforeseen events can help generate new ideas and opportunities as they make you anxious and angry; and come to appreciate that the human inclination for tidiness – in our personal and professional lives, online, even in children’s play – can mask deep and debilitating fragility that keep us from innovation."--Amazon.com.
