"An accessible, optimistic field guide to the future."--San Francisco Chronicle"Reading this book is like sitting down with a creative, optimistic friend--and getting up as a new version of yourself."--Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of WhenThe COVID-19 pandemic, increasingly frequent climate disasters, a new war -- events we might have called "unimaginable" or "unthinkable" in the past are now reality. Today it feels more challenging than ever to feel unafraid, hopeful, and equipped to face the future with optimism. How do we map out our lives when it seems impossible to predict what the world will be like next week, let alone next year or next decade? What we need now are strategies to help us recover our confidence and creativity in facing uncertain futures.In?Imaginable, Jane McGonigal draws on the latest scientific research in psychology and neuroscience to show us how to train our minds to think the unthinkable and imagine the unimaginable. She invites us to play with the provocative thought experiments and future simulations she's designed exclusively for this book, with the goal to:
    Build our collective imagination so that we can dive into the future and envision, in surprising detail, what our lives will look like ten years from nowDevelop the courage and vision to solve problems creativelyTake actions and make decisions that will help shape the future we desireAccess "urgent optimism," an unstoppable force within each of us that activates our sense of agency

Imaginable teaches us to be fearless, resilient, and bold in realizing a world with possibilities we cannot yet imagine--until reading this transformative, inspiring, and necessary book.
