Improv Wisdom teaches us how to apply the maxims of improvisational theater to real-life challengeshelping readers to loosen up, think on their feet, and take on everything life has to offer with skill, chutzpah, and a sense of humor. “A good improviser is someone who is awake, not entirely self-focused, and moved by a desire to do something useful and give something back and who acts upon this impulse,” says Madson.
We live in times when people are desperately seeking security and a life of as few risks as possible. This is precisely the time, says the author, to savor the pleasures and delights of an improvised life. She shares thirteen laws of improvisation, along with exercises that can be applied to daily life. They include: say yes, don't prepare, just show up, pay attention, make mistakes, wake up to the gifts, take care of each other, and, above all, enjoy the ride. Together these laws offer a creative approach to a life of adventure and meaning."
