ON FEBRUARY 22, 2010, I gave myself 9 hours to create a 100-page book. The result: The first edition of Daedalus 9. I started from scratch. I didn't have a plan. All I had was a goal. And a... More > clock. Like a musician, I simply started to play. And guided by the Thelonious Monk principle, “There are no wrong notes,” I played until time ran out then sent the PDFs of the interior and cover to the printer. In this second edition remix, I reset the clock, giving myself more time to develop the book and clearly convey core concepts. Upshot? A GPS for all my future work: A Manifesto.

MISFITZ BECAUSE: What Doesn't Belong--and Why? Mind-Teasers! By Eliot Plum

What doesn’t fit and why? Nationals, Blackhawks, Rays, Astros. --Not so tough. ANSWER? Blackhawks, because the other teams play Major League Baseball, but the Chicago Blackhawks play in the... More > National Hockey League. OK, try this one: cucumber, tomato, radish, avocado. --A little harder, right? ANSWER? Radish, because the others are botanical fruits (they have seeds) that we treat as culinary vegetables, but a seedless radish is a root vegetable. But most of the mind-puzzlers in this fun book don’t test your knowledge of special-area facts or trivia: your “vertical thinking.” Nope. Most of the puzzles in this book test what Edward de Bono calls “lateral thinking”: your ability to think creatively--to leap outside the box. Take this example: poker, chess, skate, score. --ANSWER? You'll have to get the book! Jef7rey Hildner alia Eliot Plum is a painter, graphic artist, teacher, writer, and licensed architect.
