How to have the courage to think differently?

Book Review

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

I was given a copy of the book and asked to review it. Dr. Harlem’s book categorizes approaches to problem-solving through the prisms of science, phycology, and sociology.

The author uses an autobiographic storytelling medium, recounting scenes from his medical training and life that caused him to pause and think differently.

From beginning to end the author challenges one to stop short of the obvious, to slow down and look at alternatives through the lenses of the patient. In the end, he speaks of aging, life, and death as windows into one’s ultimate purpose.

My favorite story was one of the deaths of his father and the gardenia that chose a parallel end as its purpose too had come to an end. Interesting concepts… no matter how you think.
