The Agile Mind How Your Brain Makes Creativity Happen by Estanislao Bachrach

This is a publishing sensation in Argentina that has sold over 200,000 copies and topped the best-seller charts for a record-breaking two years, now available in English for the first time! The Agile Mind is about the most precious mental talent we have: the ability to imagine things which have never existed and to create new ideas. This book demystifies the preconceptions we often have about how our brains function to show how creativity really works, and how we can make it work even better. We used to think that creativity diminished through the lifespan, but we now know this is not the case. The brain can regenerate and continue learning until the last days of our lives. We can all become more creative if we use the right methods and techniques to stimulate our brains and broaden our minds.


'Estani is an amazing teacher when it comes to the mind and how to master it.' Heather Watson, leading British tennis player
