As a guide to success, this book explains why, when, and how to depart from verified recipes and proven science. Using real-life examples, the authors show how to
- avoid overgeneralization traps,
- create new knowledge by trial-and-error thinking, and
- reduce personal risk and maximize benefits by collective application of the trial-and-error process.
With these insights, you’ll be more likely to learn from your mistakes, be more creative, be less likely to conform when you shouldn’t, and be better prepared for the unexpected.
