Psychology: emotions

Open your mind to radical curiosity and be inspired by the journeys of curious and inquisitive people in order to push boundaries, make new discoveries and find meaning and purpose in your own life.

This book offers a masterclass in the power of purposeful curiosity to succeed and lead a fulfilled life. Dr Costas Andriopoulos has spent the last five years interviewing the most curious minds working today, focused on people who have harnessed their inquisitive minds and innovative thinking to achieve great things across a variety of fields.

In this book he explores the way these special people have channelled and fed their curiosity with purpose and weaves in gripping insights and advice from the interviews along with cutting-edge research from psychology, neuroscience, management, history, sociology and anthropology to illuminate the purposefully curious approach.

Packed with practical tools alongside the fascinating narrative, the book offers Dr Andriopoulos' nine essential lessons that will allow you to make use of curiosity in your own life to empower you - whatever your journey - and help you replicate the experiences of others to reach your goals and thrive.
Dr. Andriopoulos interviews Formula One engineers, scientists working to grow food on Mars, opera singers, visual special effects artists, storm chasers, venture capitalists, Michelin-starred chefs, and many others to learn how they used their curiosity to achieve challenging goals. Although not everyone aspires to explore Antarctica or found a factchecking website, we all search for meaning and progress. Whether we're trying to be better or the best in what we do, prepare for a new job or leave our current career for something more fulfilling, see through the "noise" of fake outrage and information overload, commercialize an innovation, improve health, or teach children the value of solving a puzzle, all of us can benefit from thinking like a purposefully curious person.

Purposeful Curiosity offers nine essential lessons that allow us to make use of our curiosity, to empower and help you replicate the experiences of others in order to reach your goals and thrive.
