Experienced juggler Gelb and Buzan, author of Use Both Sides of Your Brain, combined forces to write this guide to the juggling metaphor method--a method of achieving psychophysical ambidexterity. The authors contend that in practicing juggling, people learn to draw on both sides of their brain, to achieve greater physical fitness (by increasing the difficulty of the juggling experience), and to change their attitude toward mistakes and regard them not as failure but as an element of growing and learning. The first half of the book is a genuine juggling lesson; the second part is an application of those skills to the business world, coaching, and everyday life. An interesting philosophy that has been taught at corporate seminars, schools, and military and police academies. Denise Perry DonavinFrom Publishers Weekly:
Gelb, a learning consultant, and Buzan (The Mind Map Book) present a quirky and effective amalgamation of managerial principles, learning theories and ideas on juggling. Using juggling (tennis balls or fruit) as a learning metaphor, they hypothesize on goal setting, attitude transformation, relaxation and confidence building. The benefits of mastering the art of juggling-including correct balance, ambidexterity and confidence-are readily applied to other endeavors. Amply illustrated with sketches, this uncommon approach to self-improvement has more to offer than other such guides and is a great deal more fun.
