Title: The Art of Insight
Author: Charles Kiefer and Malcolm Constable
Stars: **

Who wouldn’t like to have more aha moments? Kiefer and Constable
describe how to achieve more of them through the “Art of Insight,” which is
made up of the 4 key elements summarized below:

-        Understand what insights are so they can be recognized
-        Put oneself in the frame of mind conducive to having insights
-        Learn how to listen for insights
-        Understand how thought works in your life

This reviewer is fairly analytical, so some of the concepts and exercises
were a bit difficult to grasp. For example, the following excerpt describes a
client’s experience with internal dialogue…

“When I’m actively thinking about a topic, it actually seems like I’m in a
conversation with myself in my head. Sometimes it shows up as two
people talking, both of whom are me, with a third one sitting on the side,
listening to the other two mes talk to each other.” Whoa!

While there is no guarantee this book will make you the aha king, it may
improve your current track record in that area. In addition to the book, you
