Emerging from years of multi-disciplinary research, Enduring Edge presents a powerful new framework on the mind to transform how we think, create and change.
Weaving engaging stories with practical insights, it introduces the 3 states of mind in which we lead our lives—1D, 2D and 3D—and describes how we can master the strengths and conquer the weaknesses of each state to attain an enduring edge over our mind.
Readers around the world, from innovators and entrepreneurs to leaders across diverse fields, have applied it to spark creativity, harness innovation, transcend failure, and transform how they change and lead—their lives, careers, communities, and the world.

“When Ms. Shukla appeared as a guest teacher, it was magic… I wish all students could access Ms. Shukla’s theories of the mind. This knowledge gave my students new tools to challenge the world, new ways of thinking about their everyday problems. Ms. Shukla is truly a genius, and her theories deserve your attention.”

"A phenomenal book that goes deeper into understanding instinct, intellect, and intuition. Rather than simply providing an explanation, Shukla goes deeper into really understanding how we can harness the power of all three... highly recommended for anyone who wants to harness their mind in a new direction - to take on challenges that are seemingly insurmountable."− Amazon Review
"Excellent book that completely shifted my perspective on how thinking influences our daily lives. Kudos to Shukla for her engaging voice and thoughtful writing style (and that she packed so much information into a relatively slim volume). I find that I keep referring back to parts of the book even after I finished. Inspiring and a great read."− Amazon Review
"I think your book is truly one of the best books I’ve ever read... it reflects a level of wisdom and holistic understanding that few people ever achieve in life... your writing is elegant and exquisite and at times poetic, and extremely concise for what it covers – which could be written in volumes... I think you’ve written a classic and I hope over time the world will regard it as such so that millions of people may benefit from its wisdom."− Letter from a Reader
