ANATOMY OF A BREAKTHROUGH How to Get Unstuck When It Matters Most

by | Read by Adam Alter

Personal Growth • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Business and psychology professor Alter offers a seamless array of stories from art, technology, music, and sports to illustrate the specific ways creative people can overcome roadblocks to breakthrough achievements. He narrates smoothly, speaking with the steady tone and pacing of someone who's comfortable with his ideas. Buoyed by this almost perfect marriage of careful thinking and a relaxed performance, the audiobook delivers insights and suggestions that sound truly groundbreaking. The strategies sound deceptively simple: Minimize your options; subtract from, rather than add to, stalled initiatives; examine your emotional biases and habits. He understands creative blocks, which he says are due to perfectionism, and shows how people can break away from the familiar and the conventional to embrace new creative directions.
