    1. *I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*Firstly, I admit to not having finished this book. I just couldn't do it. The structure was too annoying. I wanted to be engaged - some of the ideas were intriguing - but after close reading of three of the chapters, I gave up and rapidly skimmed the rest. In "Too Fast to Think," Chris Lewis (attempts to) argue that over-stimulation is crushing our creativity. His supporting evidence, however, is scattered and [...]


    2. We are being sapped of our energy, our creativity and maybe even our lives “thanks” to the 24/7 hyper-connected world and ever-increasingly our work is contributing to this pressure. The author of this book believes that we may need to hit the brakes of this runaway machine, possibly before it is too late.At work the typical worker is overloaded with information and sensory inputs, often fighting to deal with things at the cost that any creativity and new thinking is impeded. Help is at hand [...]


    3. I read this book thanks to Blinkist:The key message in this book:From the way we talk and walk to how we resolve conflicts and view the world, our cultural backgrounds determine how we behave. By interacting with people from different cultures, we’re better able to recognize and understand contrasting behaviors and communicate with individuals of all backgrounds. Actionable advice:Ask questions first before you judge someone’s behavior.The next time you’re working or socializing with someo [...]


    4. I received this book at an Institute of Directors event in London over a year ago. I promptly forgot about it amongst all my other reading aspirations but I'm kicking myself now for taking so long to get to it. I loved Lewis' exploration of ideas, the examples and interviewees he uses and the fact that this book covers a 'broad church' in just eight chapters. The writing style is not typical of a business book - I found it accessible and more conversational, a bit like having a series of fascina [...]


    5. كتاب مهم جدا لمن يقضون الوقت على وسائل الاتصال الاجتماعي التي تعمل إجهاد وتقتل المخيلة التي تعمل على الإبداع علينا ان نعطي العقل الراحة ليبدع من جديد باستخدام الشقي الأيمن المسؤول على الألوان وقراءة مشاعر الآخرين ،والأيسر المسؤول عن اللغة والتحليل والمنطقالجامعات لا تعلم [...]


    6. It is somehow a sum of pretty good ideas on how to “help” our creativity in a world full of tech temptations.The structure disappoints a bit.And not enough new ideas.



    7. Alright, I am pleased to see a criticism of the lack of preparation provided by the universities for REAL LIFE. University education is severely lacking and has coined the term 'educated into imbecility'. The same goes with social media, and the havoc it wrecks on the mind's ability.This book covers the damage done to the creative experience due to social media, which is something I found intuitive but I think many people miss this fact. I think this book is informative and well worth reading fo [...]


    8. Too Fast to Think by Chris LewisI strongly recommend this book to leaders, managers and educators. This is an interesting and well written book. There are a few places where the author gets a bit bogged down but they are few. Chris Lewis looks at how our present fast paced lifestyle and culture is affecting people’s creativity. Lewis looks into the reasons this is happening as well as potential future results if the trend continues. His section on education is excellent. His quote of Sir Ken R [...]


    9. While there have been a number of books written on creativity, Lewis takes a unique position around why our creativity has been threatened by modern technology and the speed at which we expect to react and interact socially.This maybe self-evident to many creators, but I think there still remains a large group of leaders and type A folks who could benefit from reading his book to understand:- The role of the left and right brain, and how the dichotomy is not as distinct as one would think- The i [...]


    10. The premise and title of the book didn't quite connect to all the material within. I was expecting something similar to The Shallows about how to deal with the changing world of work. There was some of that but the book was more a mediation on the ways that creativity is valuable in the work place. I found a lot of great quotes in this book and agreed very strongly with the overall premise. It did feel like the author was drawing primarily on his own experience as the solution rather than as one [...]
