  • Cover scan of Trying Not To Try
    Trying Not To Try: The Ancient Art Of Effortlessness And The Surprising Power Of Spontaneity
    Edward G. Slingerland - Paperback - Canongate
    Why is it hard to fall asleep the night before an important meeting? Or be charming and relaxed on a first date? What is it about a comedian whose jokes fall flat or an athlete who chokes? In all these cases, spontaneity is elusive. In 'Trying Not to Try', Edward Slingerland shows us how we can harness its power and become more effective. We've long been told that the way to achieve our goals is through careful reasoning and conscious effort, but recent research suggests that many aspects of a satisfying life are best pursued indirectly. Through stories of mythical creatures and drunken cart riders, jazz musicians and Japanese motorcycle gangs, Slingerland effortlessly blends Eastern thought and cutting-edge science to show us how we can embody a spontaneous way of being and live more fulfilling lives.
