It is an interesting book but seems to be more of a collection of interesting stories than actionable items. The narration was excellent. It is entertaining but I was looking for more of a how to experience.

I like all his insight stories and his analysis of each story. But his explanation is too tedious and repetitive.
I was waiting the whole book for the moment he would finally say how we can really trigger insights, but as this question has no answer he just gave us many stories for us to figure out by ourselves. I think my expectations were too high for the end of the book and I got really sad when it suddenly ended with no clear answer. I enjoyed and had fun with all his little cases and stories, and I definitely learned something from listening. But my feeling when it ended was a feeling of "really? is that all? I listened to the same stories over and over again for nothing?"
I just think he could had explained the same things in a much shorter book.

I purchased this book expecting it to be a practical guide for increasing the rate of insights I have, at work and otherwise.
This book is not a how-to guide.
Nonetheless, I found it very informative, well narrated, and I learned a lot from each of the anecdotes shared. I can't help but feel that by expanding my world view, even just slightly, this book has inadvertently provided me with more tools to help me get ahead in every day life.

The main thing I learned is that it's a good idea to let go of what we think is right or usual in order to achieve new insights. For me, I found most of the book interesting but not completely useful. This would seem to be a hard area to research and to come up with any specific strategies.

Gary's investigation into and understanding of how insights occur is thorough and a testament to insightfulness. The narration is lovely and the voice type well matched to the topic. I love the use of story as the frame also. Will have to listen to it again.
