Myths about brainstorming, introverts, teamwork, and open-plan offices


Malcolm Gladwell and the Freakonomics Guys aren’t the only ones who want to burst a few of your bubbles and shake up your world of assumptions:.

I’ve come into close contact (!) with these 3 books & writers in the past few weeks and thought I’d note their titles here for my book-loving readers:

1) “Quiet” was terrific (and was written by a lawyer), but none of the reviews I’ve read so far have mentioned how funny the author is when she lets her droll sense of humor loose:

“Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking

2) I haven’t read these but have read author interviews and am waiting for my library “holds” to come in:

“Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone,” by Eric Klinenberg

“Imagine: how creativity works,” by Jonah Lehrer (author of “How we Decide”)

This was a super interview, as most On Being interviews are. You can see why it fits into this blog post: Interview with Rex Jung, “Creativity and the Everyday Brain”

And one can’t talk about any of these topics without mentioning TED Talks. But beware, you can’t listen to just one!
