By Charles Kiefer and Malcolm Constable
Conventional wisdom holds the generation of insights to be an elusive and mysterious process. Kiefer and Constable turn conventional wisdom on its head with this marvelous addition to the library of all those devoted to improving the quality of their thinking.

Based on the authors’ years of research, reflection, and experiences with colleagues, friends, and business clients, The Art of Insight presents practical methods for recognizing and cultivating an insight state of mind. All too often, decision-making is a forced experience that promotes recycling of old ideas and old ways of thinking. Kiefer and Constable’s Insight Thinking Methods are designed to foster fresh thoughts and perspectives. But this is not a rigid set of rules-it’s a creative pursuit. Guided by their user-friendly practices and helpful exercises-both in the book and online-you’ll develop your own personal approach to cultivating a mindset where insights come readily so that new or longstanding problems are solved with confidence and ease.
It is the simple truth that one insight can change your life, and the next can change your organization or even the world. A go-to-guide that can make the complicated effortless, The Art of Insight offers a path to becoming a more effective thinker and decision-maker.
