#1 New York Times Bestseller   "THIS. This is the right book for right now. Yes, learning requires focus. But, unlearning and relearning requires much more--it requires choosing courage over comfort. In Think Again, Adam Grant weaves together research and storytelling to help us build the intellectual and emotional muscle we need to stay curious enough about the world to actually change it. I've never felt so hopeful about what I don't know." --Brené Brown, Ph.D., #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dare to Lead The bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals examines the critical art of rethinking: learning to question your opinions and open other people's minds, which can position you for excellence at work and wisdom in life Intelligence is usually seen as the ability to think and learn, but in a rapidly changing world, there's another set of cognitive skills that might matter more: the ability to rethink and unlearn. In our daily lives, too many of us favor the comfort of conviction over the discomfort of doubt. We listen to opinions that make us feel good, instead of ideas that make us think hard. We see disagreement as a threat to our egos, rather than an opportunity to learn. We surround ourselves with people who agree with our conclusions, when we should be gravitating toward those who challenge our thought process. The result is that our beliefs get brittle long before our bones. We think too much like preachers defending our sacred beliefs, prosecutors proving the other side wrong, and politicians campaigning for approval--and too little like scientists searching for truth. Intelligence is no cure, and it can even be a curse: being good at thinking can make us worse at rethinking. The brighter we are, the blinder to our own limitations we can become. Organizational psychologist Adam Grant is an expert on opening other people's minds--and our own. As Wharton's top-rated professor and the bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take, he makes it one of his guiding principles to argue like he's right but listen like he's wrong. With bold ideas and rigorous evidence, he investigates how we can embrace the joy of being wrong, bring nuance to charged conversations, and build schools, workplaces, and communities of lifelong learners. You'll learn how an international debate champion wins arguments, a Black musician persuades white supremacists to abandon hate, a vaccine whisperer convinces concerned parents to immunize their children, and Adam has coaxed Yankees fans to root for the Red Sox. Think Again reveals that we don't have to believe everything we think or internalize everything we feel. It's an invitation to let go of views that are no longer serving us well and prize mental flexibility over foolish consistency. If knowledge is power, knowing what we don't know is wisdom.… (plus d'informations)

When a book inspires me to jot down several insights to share with students in my college communications classes, the work automatically scores at least four stars. Adam Grant’s book spurred me to scribble down more than 20 nuggets that will be helpful to students who deliver persuasive speeches in my oral communications class. There were even some tips for strategic rethinking that will be helpful to my media literacy students as we explore a variety of timely and controversial topics. True, some of Grant’s concepts have been explored in other self-help books. But the author’s skill in articulating these strategies and his excellent examples make this a must-read book. I won’t list all of the takeaways – or even a half-dozen. But here are a couple instructive nuggets. When trying to advance an argument, don’t be a “logic bully” by attempting to overwhelm a listener with many arguments. A string arguments can feel like an onslaught. One compelling argument – especially if it’s phrased as a question – can feel more like a conversation. Also, embrace the joy of being wrong. Don’t . Instead, celebrate it as evidence that you’re learning. “Focus less on proving yourself and more on improving yourself.” Kudos to Adam Grant. ( )

Life is uncertain, complex, and changes, so approach it like a scientist. Think Again tugs between presenting answers like a self-help book and telling the reader to revisit important topics themselves to find answers.

Internally, it seems like common sense to a questioner personality like me, but there were some good parts about questioning others and organizations in a non-judgemental way. ( )

I found Mr. Grant's thoughts very compelling - the idea that we don't know as much as we think we do and recognizing that fact can actually serve us well in our efforts to understand complex issues and to communicate with others. ( )

This was a timely read personally. Moving to a new company recently, ideas from previous experiences had to be re-thought and seen through a different lens with different light in a completely different context. This book has definitely helped me formulate how I am going to do this on a day-to-day basis ... ( )

A book that unexpectedly touched on some timely topics .... like vaccine whisperer (he was referring to measles, not COVID) and Bil and Melinda Gates (who just announced their divorce). ( )
