Sudden flashes of inspiration have triggered many discoveries and inventions throughout history. Are such Aha! moments merely random or is there a way to train the brain to harness these seemingly unpredictable creative insights? In this overview of the latest neuroscience findings on spontaneous thought processes or "snaps," Dr. Katherine Ramsland describes how everyone can learn to improve the likelihood of their own Eureka moments by adopting certain attitudes and habits. Much more than new ideas, snaps are insights plus momentum. They often occur after ordinary problem solving hits an impasse. We may feel stuck, but the brain is rebooting, and the solution pops into our heads. Written in an accessible, jargon-free narrative, weaving together the latest research with illuminating stories of innovative people, Snap teaches us how to cultivate our own inner epiphanies to gain an edge in business, career paths, and even our personal lives.--From publisher description.
