Synopsis

At the two ends of the neurological spectrum are logical thinking and elastic thinking. Generally the purvue of artists and great thinkers, elastic thinking is called upon more and more in our everyday lives. Luckily, we are not born one way or another. Leonard Mlodinow, author of the book Elastic, joins us to talk about ways we can train our thinking to be less logical and make up our own rules.
