Reseña del editor
Would it surprise you to learn that to solve a seemingly unsolvable problem, you need to get up and leave the room? A walk in the woods will help you finish your novel? Humming can make you a better tennis player? Or completely giving up is the way to succeed? In The Breakout Principle, the bestselling author of The Relaxation Response delivers the ultimate self-help principle -- simple instructions to activate a powerful biological trigger that converts conflict and confusion into clarity and extraordinary performance, a state athletes refer to as "the zone." More than three decades ago, Dr. Herbert Benson of the Harvard Medical School began research into why some people are devastated by stress while others thrive, turning it into brilliant achievement. Now The Breakout Principle reports the discovery of an easy-to-access inner switch that increases mental function, enhances creativity and productivity, maximizes athletic performance, and enriches spiritual life. The same internal mechanism that improves a tennis serve or golf putt strengthens your speaking skills, makes you a better negotiator, and fosters inner peace and belief. Dr. Benson and coauthor William Proctor explain the cutting-edge science behind the phenomenon in accessible language, clearly describe the four distinct phases of the Breakout, and provide simple, step-by-step instructions on how to activate the Breakout "trigger." Compelling case histories and information on how to incorporate Breakouts into daily life are woven throughout the book. Dr. Benson's previous discoveries have helped millions reduce the harmful effects of stress. The Breakout Principle now reveals how to maximize your untapped abilities and powers.

This is all very convincing and tends to be consistent with both reported experiences and the writing of other experts. For example, the breaking of patterns fits with Edward de Bono's notion of creativity coming from breaking out of fixed patterns. Benson's theory also fits with the notion that good ideas sometimes come after incubation, when a person struggling with a problem temporarily let's go of the struggle and arrives at a solution at seemingly odd moments - in the shower, for example.
My concern with Benson's claims is that a lot of the supporting studies he refers to are ones in which he participated. Other studies mentioned seem to be cherry-picked from a few select sources from a short period of time. Another problem is Benson's prescription for harnessing the breakout principle in the business world. In essence he encourages businesses to hire people who do not get along but can act civilly to create what he calls a "Grating Paradox" where conflict leads to productivity. I think this advice is naive and simplistic. I also don't believe that people who experience a breakout necessarily remain at a new higher level whatever peak they achieved. If so then everyone would be on a kind of perpetual improvement cycle, which I think experience contradicts.
There is no doubt that people definitely have moments where they suddenly emerge from a struggle in the way Benson describes. It also seems credible that Benson's theory is accurate. I have used the advice of breaking previous thought patterns in an attempt to stop worries and anxieties, though not necessarily to trigger a breakthrough, and it has helped. I just wish that he had provided more diverse sources of support and not extended the reach of his theory into the business world.
