Summary
Tim Harford explains that the human qualities we value--creativity, responsiveness, resilience--are integral to the disorder, confusion, and disarray that produce them. From the music studio of Brian Eno to the Lincoln Memorial with Martin Luther King, Jr., and from the boardroom to the classroom, messiness lies at the core of how we innovate, how we achieve, how we reach each other--in short, how we succeed. ln Messy, you'll learn about the unexpected connections between creativity and mess; understand why unexpected changes of plans, unfamiliar people, and unforeseen events can help generate new ideas and opportunities even as they make you anxious and angry; and come to appreciate that the human inclination for tidiness--in our personal and professional lives, online, even in children's play--can mask deep and debilitating fragility that keeps us from innovation
