We also take this opportunity to introduce an indie author who recently published their books.This time, we are introducing the book from The Umbrella Experiment titled " How to Know How to Know" which is available on amazon paperback and also via kindle unlimited. How to Know How to Know: A Short, Fun, and Easy-Reading Manual on How to Excel in Epistemology, Existentialism, Art and Finance
|Most self help books emphasize movement - constant striving and yearning for things. This book will help you learn stillness. It begins by offering major insights on knowledge -- acquisition, retention, and consolidation, before moving into other epistemological and existential fields such as art, solitude, and even finance.How to Know How to Know focuses on the here and now. It explores how to acquire wisdom through self-satisfaction and self-content. How to be alone and at peace. How to be satisfied with not knowing. Among others. It also does this in a way that does not, by any means, discard the importance of movement and strive, but appreciates the complexity of both movement and inertia.How to Know How to Know underlines 36 key aspects of human intellectual and psychological development and gives concise, straight-to-the-point pointers and explanations on how to excel and achieve mastery of these areas.From knowing how to acquire, retain, and consolidate knowledge, to knowing how to imitate correctly; from mastering silence, distance, charity and clarity, to knowing how to write and read, the book sets out to cover as many general areas of human existence as possible within its scope, while emphasizing the underlying principles that are applicable not just to the individual problems in each chapter, but to other related areas as well.Every chapter begins with a quick overview of the problem highlighted in the chapter.The Umbrella Project is a publishing project established to discover and publish budding and newly discovered authors from all over the world. It is the aim of the Experiment to provide a platform for those who have important contributions to pass across to society in general but lack the necessary wherewithal to do so.It is our aim to bring together these individuals, with the ultimate objective of coming up with and implementing actionable, long-lasting solutions to various problems facing contemporary.|
