Think Like a Rocket Scientist
Simple Strategies You Can Use to Make Giant Leaps in Work and Life
By Ozan Varol
Narrated by Ozan Varol / 10 hours 44 minutes
“Think Like a Rocket Scientist is a great resource for businesses, especially in the midst of our current unstable environment. Ozan Varol provides simple strategies and thought-provoking questions to examine the invisible rules and restrictive thinking that often holds us back. I appreciated concepts like the "kill the company" exercise, which puts you in the position of your competitor to generate ideas to destroy your company, idea or product in order to pinpoint weaknesses and recognize strengths. While not everything in the book is revolutionary, Varol is able provide solid examples and well-stated thoughts and strategies.”Tina, Leaves Book and Tea Shop

A former rocket scientist reveals the habits, ideas, and strategies that will empower you to turn the seemingly impossible into the possible.
Rocket science is often celebrated as the ultimate triumph of technology. But it's not. Rather, it's the apex of a certain thought process -- a way to imagine the unimaginable and solve the unsolvable. It's the same thought process that enabled Neil Armstrong to take his giant leap for mankind, that allows spacecraft to travel millions of miles through outer space and land on a precise spot, and that brings us closer to colonizing other planets.
Fortunately, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to think like one.
In this accessible and practical book, Ozan Varol reveals nine simple strategies from rocket science that you can use to make your own giant leaps in work and life -- whether it's landing your dream job, accelerating your business, learning a new skill, or creating the next breakthrough product. Today, thinking like a rocket scientist is a necessity. We all encounter complex and unfamiliar problems in our lives. Those who can tackle these problems -- without clear guidelines and with the clock ticking -- enjoy an extraordinary advantage.
Think Like a Rocket Scientist will inspire you to take your own moonshot and enable you to achieve liftoff.
