I have been reading the book Messy: How to be Creative and Resilient in a Tidy-Minded World by Tim Harford over the past few weeks and have thoroughly enjoyed it. So I thought I would run a giveaway for one of you guys to win a copy of the book.
The book looks at how messiness can actually be a positive thing in our lives. Learn how disorder can actually help us to be more creative and resilient.
We all benefit from tidy organisation – up to a point. A large library needs a reference system. Global trade needs the shipping container. Scientific collaboration needs measurement units. But the forces of tidiness have marched too far. Corporate middle managers and government bureaucrats have long tended to insist that everything must have a label, a number and a logical place in a logical system. Now that they are armed with computers and serial numbers, there is little to hold this tidy-mindedness in check. It’s even spilling into our personal lives, as we corral our children into sanitised play areas or entrust our quest for love to the soulless algorithms of dating websites. Order is imposed when chaos would be more productive. Or if not chaos, then . . . messiness.
To be in with a chance of winning a copy of the book please enter via rafflecopter below. UK entrants only please. The giveaway will end at midnight on Sunday 26th March. The winner will then be notified via email, please respond within 30 days or a new winner will be drawn.
