9780062097903: Blind Spot: Why We Fail to See the Solution Right in Front of Us: How Finding a Solution to One of the World's Greatest Mysteries with the Verifier Method Changes the Way We Approach Success

The Voynich Manuscript has been considered to be the world's most mysterious book. Filled with strange illustrations and an unknown language, it challenged the world's top code-crackers for nearly a century.

But in just four-and-a-half months, Dr. Gordon Rugg, a renowned researcher, found evidence (which had been there all along) that the book could be a giant, glittering hoax.

In Blind Spot: Why We Fail to See the Solution Right in Front of Us, Dr. Rugg shares his story and shows how his toolkit of problem-solving techniques--such as his Verifier Method--can save the day, particularly in those times when the experts on your team have all the data in front of them but are still unaccountably at an impasse.

In the tradition of Malcolm Gladwell and Dan Ariely, Dr. Rugg, a rising star in computer science, challenges us to re-examine the way we think, and provides new tools to solve problems and crack codes in our own lives.

Review:

""Blind Spot" provides a template for making sense of failure and divining a strategy for success. A unique and invigorating read; compelling and entertaining, informative and inspiring."--David J. Parkes, associate director of Information Services at Staffordshire University

A wonderful work Rugg has succeeded in pulling off the almost impossible task of presenting a highly complex subject area in a way that can be understood by all. --Wesley Vernon, O.B.E., professor at Jordanthorpe Healthe Centre, Sheffield"

Rugg is at the cutting edge of research into one of the biggest questions of our time: when can the pronouncements of experts be trusted? This book applies Rugg s groundbreaking methods to a fascinating range of issues, with sometimes shocking consequences. --Robert Matthews, Department of Mathematics at Aston University, Birmingham, and author of "25 Big Ideas: The Science That's Changing Our World""
