Wonder is a universal emotion, yet its importance in individuals’ lives is not clearly understood. Parker’s (founder, HATCH) book is the first to examine the concept of wonder through multidisciplinary lenses and to make the subject less ambiguous. Wonder is the common thread in many human activities, such as art, design, music, politics, religion, romance, and science. It is a key element in making learning, work, and many aspects of life more meaningful. The author expertly illuminates how wonder is an emotion that is experienced as a thought process, rather than spontaneous feelings. Adapting this type of mindset can be beneficial in business settings, including building relationships, identifying new opportunities, innovating new marketing campaigns, and managing. This book will appeal to readers who enjoy in-depth explorations of alternative thinking styles backed by extensive research.
VERDICT This awe-inspiring book is recommended for all academic multidisciplinary collections, especially those in business, philosophy, and psychology.
