Safe thinking is everywhere. There’s just one problem: safe thinking invariably makes us more likely to fail.

Creativity guru and viral video pioneer Jonah Sachs argues that the most remarkable and trailblazing individuals – from the Google programmer who disobeyed his managers in order to revolutionise the world’s email systems, to the mayor who employed mime artists to transform his city's traffic problem – are those who dramatically reject the lure of what they know.

Sachs draws on cutting-edge psychology and neuroscience to uncover the specific mental habits that account for the success of those who break the mould. And he reveals how, by embracing a handful of simple brain-hacks and cognitive tools, we can all harness the power of the unsafe thinkers.
