A Timely Masterpiece!, 30 Oct. 2014
At a time when uncertainty and change are the dominant themes of our world, where information overload and knowledge overwhelm are some of the new challenges we face, and yet we still look to people who "know" for guidance and leadership..., this book offers a timely and powerful perspective. Our knowledge can sometimes be a burden, making us less agile and less capable of new insights and breakthroughs, as we instinctively seek the comfort and familiarity of the known. Not Knowing teaches us to embrace the limits of our knowledge and create the space into which new learning and new experiences can flow. In the same way the early pioneers of the scientific method eschewed the heavy burden of authority in favour of curiosity and a sense of adventure, we are invited to face our challenges by venturing to the edge of what we know and beyond. This book has had a profound effect on me and everyone I have subsequently bought it for. Steven and Diana have beautifully uncovered a fundamental theme of the human experience, one that may ultimately determine our future and can certainly enrich our present. Highly recommended!
