    One thought on “Liminal Thinking”

    1. This is a concise (and in paperback, beautifully designed) set of principles and practices for thinking clearly, acting deliberately, keeping an open mind. In short:1. Those beliefs we use to navigate the world are essential for sense-making and terribly limiting if we take them as truths unexamined. They are what shape our worldview, what lead to action, can lead to failure, conflict, misunderstanding.2. Our identities and shared experience are tied in with these beliefs, and so they are hard t [...]

    2. Well written take on how to approach problems taking into account the impact your own beliefs have on the process. The book describes how beliefs can determine how you think about things, and provides some ideas on how to set aside those beliefs and rethink the problems and solutions you are working on. I found this quite similar to other books I’ve read over the years, but put together in a well written, simple way. The author combines the science, expert opinion, process description, and exa [...]

    3. I like this book. It opens new ways of seeing the world and other people's behavior. After reading Liminal thinking, you will notice why people act in a way they act, why you respond to something in a way you respond. And if you found something wrong with it, this book teaches you how to change the way you see things.Having read Liminal thinking (and having done all exercises in it) I really feel that I stepped up on a new level of understanding the world around. Really!

    4. A book about changing beliefs and perception. Plenty of examples and case studies to visualize lessons and facts. Many of the lessons are reiteration from "How to win friends and influence people". The message runs well into well-developed societal fundamentals, shaking up reality for the reader. This books is one to ruminate about for a while into the future - I look forward to connecting the dots as I continue to observe and navigate through life.

    5. I had the pleasure a couple of years ago of hearing Dave Gray talk about and explore some ideas he had for a new book, throwing them out to the audience and having a conversation around them. Earlier this year I had the privilege of reading some early versions of pages that had evolved from those explorations and which now form the heart of Dave’s new book, Liminal Thinking. I was excited to get the final version of the book and looking forward to sitting down and breezing through it, to soak [...]

    6. “How our beliefs create blind spots” to “our assumption that we understand a situation” are just some of the barriers we inadvertently put up between our opportunities and our relationships that Liminal Thinking can alleviate. I value the actionable insights and the sequence in which they are offered to enable us readers to become more self-aware and able to make wiser choices – for ourselves and with others. As Gray advises, “Assume that you are not objective.” The book is a helpf [...]

    7. I started reading Liminal Thinking at the same time as attempting a program on rewiring your brain. For me, this book spoke of the same principles, but I could understand them better as the book's written in a language and manner of speaking which I identify with.I ended up abandoning the program and solely reading Liminal Thinking and applying the principles to my life and thought patterns as I went along. While a *complete* mindshift isn't possible within the timeframe of reading the book, it [...]

    8. For some reason, the run time for the audiobook says 6 hours, but the book is only about half that. I enjoyed this very much and would like to go back to it in written form sometime soon. I think I'd absorb more that way.

    9. I'm slightly biased since a couple of my war stories appear in this book, but I rather liked this. All too often books about change tell a nice story, but fail to show you how to apply the concepts. This is not one of those books. It's structured as a series tactical practices around beliefs and change, and wraps those practices up in a nice model. It's given me some new ways to think about stuff I've been doing for years, and highlighted some gaps in how I approach things. If you're managing or [...]

    10. What I like about the book is that it stays less esoteric and spiritual than it could easily be drawn into, especially when it comes to discussing beliefs in general. Is there anything new? Did the author include newly discovered science? Not that I recall, but this isn't bad at all. What is actually really "new" for us after millions of years on this planet? Byron Katie talks in her work about thought patterns and beliefs and loops, Pema Chodron and other Buddhist teachers talk about contemplat [...]

    11. If you're searching for ways to "think differently" and approach problems and issues with another mind, this book could help you. But if you have read already a lot of things about business and for example design thinking, then unfortunately this book won't offer you much.While it's greatly written, illustrated and constructed, I've felt quite disappointed when reading it. I think I was expecting a lot of new things, a new way of thinking, but the whole book proposes advices that are quite usual [...]

    12. I had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of Dave Gray’s new novel, Liminal Thinking. It’s hands-down one of the most interesting and introspective works I’ve read. It gave me new ways to think about my every day existence, as well as some key strategies to tackle problems in my very technical day job. I wish all my programmers would read it, and in fact, I’m hoping to pass along a few copies to them this holiday season.Liminal Thinking is applicable to much more than just UX or pro [...]

    13. This is possibly the best book I've ever read. It was a "quake" book in every sense. It completely shook my world. I naturally wholeheartedly recommend everyone to read it.

    14. Such a great book. Do yourself a favor and spend a few hours with it. It's a quick read that really packs a punch.

    15. A good reminder of some things I already knew: question assumptions, especially the hidden and unacknowledged assumptions that get in the way of good communication.

    16. Два в одном: развитие креативности и менеджмент в его широком значении. Автор рассматривает довольно известную проблему (или возможность) «смотреть на проблему с другой точки зрения, под другим углом» или более точнее, «смотреть глазами другого человека», чаще всего, прот [...]

    17. liminal thinking: the art of creating change by understanding, shaping, and reframing beliefs. This book was divided into two sections: the first went over how we form our beliefs and how they can limit us; the second was how to reevaluated and reshape those beliefs if needed. Change is scary and it's easy to cling to the way you've always done something to avoid moving forward. Beliefs help everyone make sense of the world around them and even influences how they interact with others. Beliefs c [...]

    18. "If you can be open about how change affects you personally, you have a better chance of achieving your aims. To change the world, you must be willing to change yourself.""You can test beliefs even if you don't believe they are true. All you need to do is act as if they were true and see what happens. If you find something that works, do more of it." "Beliefs are created. Beliefs are constructed hierarchically, using theories and judgements, which are based on selected facts and personal, subjec [...]

    19. {'Liminal thinking is something anyone can learn, but it’s not easy. It’s uncomfortable, even unsettling. It’s a lot of work! Why would anyone want to do all these uncomfortable things, especially when it seems like the only rewards are increased ambiguity, uncertainty, and doubt?The answer is this: Because it matters.It matters because you matter. You owe it to yourself to be a whole, self-actualized person. It matters because your friends matter and your family matters. They deserve to b [...]

    20. Com um pouco de atraso, desde o seu lançamento. Este foi um dos melhores livros que li recentemente. Dave segue sua essência em buscar simplificar a vida das pessoas usando imagens e pensamento visual explicando como o Pensamento Liminal (Liminal Thinking) pode nos ajudar a olhar oportunidades por trás das nossas crenças. Ótimo para líderes (de qualquer departamento) e designers (líderes de projeto e facilitadores).Dave resume anos de pesquisa em Change Management, Cultura Organizacional [...]

    21. This one was a nice surprise!Generally speaking this is a super-light intro into the general area of rationality/bias literature, but written without using most of the fields lingo and aim at the consulting & c-level management, but without being annoyingly "business-y".The focus is on belief formation, naive realism, confirmation & social biases. The closest reference is Gilovithch's Wisest One in the Room, but Liminal thinking is much less technical.As such it actually can be recommend [...]

    22. This book talks about the gray area in our head where our beliefs and make up theories obscure the truth, such as a blind spot obstructs our view. In 9 chapters the book discusses the concept of liminal thinking and how it could affect negativity on our relationship and work. Two things I like in this book, the first is the story telling style that the author used. The book is full of stories that support facts. In addition, the doodling and sketches have been used repeatedly in the book which f [...]

    23. Liminal Thinking is an interesting book that provides insights to the way we see the world by challenging our worldview and beliefs. In particular, I really enjoyed Gray's succinct explanation of what liminal thinking is using visuals in the beginning of the book. As I read on, however, the book gradually became stale due to the generic and often repetitive strategies he offers. Liminal thinking is embodied in core Buddhist teachings and isn't anything new, but at the same time, it is a concept [...]

    24. This book was written by a friend of a friend, and recommended to me by our intermediary. It is a light read, written to challenge us to examine our belief systems and escape the thought patterns that make us resistant to change.'Limen' is the Latin word for 'threshold.' Thus liminal space is the threshold between our observations of the 'obvious' and reality. Gray unpacks the nature of experiences, attention, theories, judgments, and beliefs fill that space, and provides tools fit to challenge [...]

    25. It was a good read. I struggle with this type of book (I would consider it self-help) because I usually end up deciding that a person who is living a reflective life (just thinking about what you do, why you do it, and if you want to keep doing it) would come to the same conclusion on their own, and the buzzwords ('belief bubble,' etc) irritate me. However, despite me being grouchy about self-help, I did enjoy this book and the points in it.

    26. Gotta love when someone teaches you how to better leverage your own thoughts.Listened to thisd will plan to read this book as a refresher in the near future. Loved the stories that drove home each major point. Very helpful to have exercises throughout the book that are simple enough to take a few minutes to do before learning more.

    27. Good ConceptsLiminal Thinking has some great concepts in it. It is written very simplistically - and that is okay, it makes for a quick read. You have probably heard the sentiment in this book, but the author does a nice job of explaining the reasoning behind your thinking, the benefits of changing it, and provides some strategies to do so.
