Overview

Raise the bar to become the best version of you

Most of us set the bar too low in our lives, both personally and professionally. Bob Deutsch, a cognitive neuroscientist/anthropologist turned entrepreneur, has spent a lifetime studying people and found that we choose not to pursue our greatest ambitions because we feel we are incapable of reaching them. But he has also found that we are each born with the fundamental abilities to live the full, creative, dynamic lives we dream about.  Curiosity, Openness, Sensuality, Paradox, and Self-Story—these are our five inner resources. Through interviews with inspiring people, including Wynton Marsalis and Richard Feynman, and case studies of personalities like Bruce Springsteen and Anna Quindlen, Deutsch shows us how to access and use these resources to open our lives to unimagined possibilities.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Cognitive neuroscientist Bob Deutsch is convinced that most of us sell ourselves short. Instead of pursuing what would make us most fulfilled, we settle for what will get us through. In this book, he challenges readers to tap five essential inner resources (Curiosity; Openness; Sensuality; Paradox; Self-Story) to open their everyday lives to previously unimagined possibilities. The 5 Essentials is grounded in hard science, but it uses interviews with the likes of Anna Quindlen, Wynton Marsalis, and Richard Feynman to demonstrate its points. An apt choice for readers of books such as The Element or The Tools.
