Too Fast To Think investigates the impact of an always-on work culture on creativity.
In Too Fast To Think, a timely and inspirational new book by Chris Lewis, he investigates our busy, ‘disruptive’ work culture and the detrimental impact this has on our creativity and our lives.
Chris Lewis gives us permission to stop, think, dream, be and shows us how to replace hurry sickness with creative success.
Dr Pippa Malmgren, former US presidential adviser
In a book that exposes what our exhausted work and education culture is doing to our health and minds, Lewis reveals how we can reclaim our creativity. From an exploration of cutting-edge cognitive research into creative thought, to an explanation of the eight key factors that are needed for greater creativity (belief, quiet, dreaming, release, relaxation, repetition, play and teaching), the book shows how we can change the way we work.
Making the time to really think is key to success. The author is a living testament to this philosophy.
Lord Bell, Executive Chairman of Bell Pottinger
Drawing from his own experience founding and running a global communications agency, Lewis not only reveals his own secrets of success but details the personal stories of a diverse range of leaders from business people, to artists; from academics to the military; from religious figures to politicians.
What connects them makes fascinating reading: they all reveal that their most inspirational ideas come, not when they are at a desk in the office, but when they are relaxed, uninterrupted and truly able to think creatively.
Too Fast to Think perfectly captures the zeitgeist of our exhausted world. It resonated profoundly with me both as an entrepreneur and as a parent.
Alison Cork, Entrepreneur, writer and broadcaster
