Review of "Paint It Black" by the author Rom Gayoso

This is a well-written book that lays out the author's quest to understand how creative and effective problem solving are achieved. His conversational and engaging style bring the reader along to a better understanding of the processes that lead to life-changing moves on what one loves … on what fascinates one’s spirit ... guiding a person to go after what really matters to him/her.
The book is divided into seven different parts/cases with characters that are experiencing reorganizing of their thinking into a new story about the problem they are trying to solve. My favorite is the fifth story – “El Otro Lado” – which describes the challenges a potential immigrant faces in the process of deciding to come to a “land of opportunity” or staying in his or her homeland.
“Paint It Black” is packed with interesting, real-life examples, conversations, anecdotes, and techniques. I think many people may be able to transform attitude into action; insight into better decisions and intuitive intelligence into improved timing by internalizing the strategies outlined in this book. I highly recommend it!
