I loved this book. Sudha Murthy has used such simple narrative for all the 50 stories. Her work is truly ‘a salute to life’. Every incident in the book left me either poignant, or ashamed or angry at the current state of people’s mind. I would recommend everyone to read this. A very light read but filled with meaning.
This book was amazing!! It changed my whole perspective on certain things while clearing up questions I have had for a long time about how instincts help us and where they arise from. The intensity of the book just keeps getting better and better towards the end as Gladwell delves deeper into the power of thinking while not thinking. His examples and the experiments quoted in the book were very apt and relatable. I will read and re-read this book.
A book that lived up to its name. It was simple and effective. There were about 10 ‘rules’ of simplicity outlined throughout the book. Combined with ample examples it was a stupendous effort to explain the concept of ‘Simplifying’ (or in de Bono’s words, ‘simping’ – a simpler word for simplifying).
