Why read a bit of everything?

Why connect new things?

The forthcoming, untitled book presents new angles for looking at the world, across a wide range of topics.

It is aimed at anyone who is curious and wants to understand more and better. It can also serve students writing applications, journalists writing pitches, researchers writing proposals and writers – anyone who needs to come up with new things worth pursuing – in short, you!

Schools cover a broad range of subjects because the basics are rightly considered relevant to all careers. But schools simplify for young minds. College cannot update it all because the focus is narrow by definition. But even the basics are more nuanced than school taught, not to mention the updates to human knowledge over the decades since you were at school. This book offers the necessary corrective, for all careers!

The snippets above and below give an indication of the range of topics (economics, language, science, geopolitics, maths, films, history, art, health, innovation and more).

But tweets have a character limit. Really the best way to get a feel for what you’ll be getting is to read this excerpt.


It’s not just what and how much to read, but why something is worth the time. The book will consistently put side by side, two things that you might otherwise not have. Because they might be from different times, different topics, different countries or simply not at all analogous at first glance. Creativity thrives on making new links between seemingly unrelated ideas.


It will also consistently try to show that the world is not what it seems and hence, more interesting and more complex than it appeared yesterday. An early chapter might contain stunning facts about a business or animal; in a subsequent one, it will show that even that was not the complete picture. That’s the second ‘why’.


For anyone about to apply to a school or job, write an article pitch or research proposal, new ideas are how you will set yourself apart. The more you read, the wider your horizon is, the sooner you will get that one original idea. But there’s no time to read it all! If you only have a few hours a month for calm retentive reading and wish you had a curated collection of bits that together puzzle the world out, get this book!
