Navigating Ambiguity is an attempt by a group of artists to share their perspectives on how we can thrive when we don't have a full picture of what is in front of us or what to do next in our lives and endeavours. This is a book that tries to help manage life uncertainties and ambiguities by teaching us the right kind of mindsets to adopt and how to adopt them.

WHAT I LIKE IN THIS BOOK
This is a book by designers and it shows. The graphic designs enhance the understanding of the subject matter. It makes reading the book easier and fun to navigate. More importantly, this is a book with lots of real-life examples of ambiguities and how to live with them.

DISLIKES
None.

WHO IS IT FOR
This is a self-help book by designers for everyone. These are professionals with something to say about life and their experiences are worth listening to by every adult grappling with the unknown.

Dreamy, mystical advice primarily for designers but useful for anyone working in a field where options are open and creativity can be a curse when there are no constraints.  The art was loose and opaque and hard to really understand, which is fitting given the theme.  Almost a dreamy advice book, if that makes sense?  It was the dreaminess that ultimately put me off; for me the book would have been better with a few more concrete examples.

I got a digital copy of this book via Netgalley. With the current circumstances that we are experiencing around us, I think this book couldn't have had a better timing. The book talks about a designer's perspective of navigating the  ambiguity all around us and does a brilliant job at that. 

What I really liked is that the book is to the point and crisp, making it a quick read. The book also speaks about the importance of balance between opposing forces in order to navigate through ambiguity. 

This book is a great companion and reminder for all leaders who are tasked with leading their teams through the current ambiguous environment.
