The Polymath

Unlocking the Power of Human Versatility

by Waqas Ahmed

"Truly inspirational…refreshingly educational"
Edward de Bono – originator of 'lateral thinking' and bestselling author of Six Thinking Hats

Every human is born with multifarious potential; and the most influential, highest performing people in world history realized this.

Why, then, do parents, schools and employers today insist that we restrict our many talents and interests; that we 'specialise' in just one?

Over the years, we've been sold a myth, that to 'specialise' is the only way to pursue truth, identity, or even a livelihood. Yet specialisation is nothing but an outdated system that fosters ignorance, exploitation and disillusionment and thwarts creativity, opportunity and progress.

In The Polymath, twenty-first century Renaissance Man Waqas Ahmed shows us that there is another way of thinking and being. Through an approach that is both philosophical and practical, he sets out a cognitive journey towards rediscovering and unlocking your innate polymathic state. Going further, he proposes nothing less than a cultural revolution in our education and professional structures, whereby everyone is encouraged to express themselves in multiple ways and fulfil their many-sided potential.
