Description

Number-one New York Times Best Seller

“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, PhD, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Dare to Lead)

"Think Again is a must-read for anyone who wants to create a culture of learning and exploration, whether at home, at work, or at school.... In an increasingly divided world, the lessons in this book are more important than ever." (Bill and Melinda Gates)

The best-selling 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 best-selling 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.

Woke academic with a bit of scientific insight.

The author reinforces the research with very topical material. Name drops like a fanboy, as he tells you about the time he worked with Malinda Gates, quotes M. Obama and nicely rounds it off by referencing Sen. Cuomo.
The narration mirrors the attempts of the author to sound hip and can be irritating at times.
Despite the virtue signalling packaging, there is some good research and science throughout.

"Stop asking your kids what they want to become"!
A very interesting and well written book. A book that recalls and inspires each one to re-think descions, actions and attitudes!

One of the best books I've ever experienced!

I can't recommend this book highly enough.

Usually, I hope there's one good thing in a book that I can take with me to make my life better and open my mind more. But with Think Again, there's so, so, SO much insight into how our minds operate, and practical ways to put this to use.

It's also thoroughly enjoyable to listen to. Well-written and not too taxing on your mind.

There are many people who I think would find this book helpful, but one group that may get a substantial benefit are people like me, who can form a solid argument based on fact, but recognize that we're terrible at persuading people to be open to our point of view. When it comes to discussing issues with other people, this book changed everything I've struggled with throughout my whole life.

But honestly, that's just one small part of the usefulness of this book.

My only complaint about it is that I was unable to play it in the background while I did something else (walked, drove, exercised, etc) because I had to keep making notes of all the fascinating things he said.

Entertaining, insightful and intelligent.

I always enjoy Adam Grant's writing. I found Think Again to be exceptionally applicable and accessible. thank you for encouraging me to Think Again. Sincerely. I used to feel some shame around 'changing my mind'. I appreciate the validation! lol

I love this book so much

I enjoyed this book so much. I can't stop thinking about the tools and lessons I learned. I've gifted the book to 3 people already. Adam Grant does a great job at giving you bite sized pieces of information in fun ways

Only Good if you've never questioned anything.

I agree, this book will help you shift your way of thinking; but those who consider themselves "woke" will NOT enjoy this. This book could have easily been 2-Hours long. The information in here is dragged out, he talks way too much about his experience with a short point at the end. Repetition is important, but the message is too repetitive. He even gets political and opinionated on issues that are completely irrelevant to the thesis of this book. This is a weaker version of the two books Rich Dad Poor Dad & How To Win Friends & Influence People.

Great Read, Censored Reading

Adam Grant knocks it out of the park yet again. This insight into rethinking things is eye opening. Unfortunately, Audible or some other entity decided to bleep out words. Truly disappointed in that... we are adult enough to write them and read them, not adult enough to hear them. The bleep outs are very distracting and it alters the authors writing and intent. Poor decision on the part of Audible.

Title is very misleading, content not great

Subtext is more about how to change people’s minds through emotional manipulation than thinking critically for yourself. Author actually makes the statement that “the ends justify the means”.

Worth listening to

Interesting & worth your time. Got a little slow a couple times, but picked up again. In the end I decided to do the book again & pass on a recommendation to my daughter & friends to read.

Adam Grant Has Done it Again.

Another great book by Adam Grant. The thing that I love is that 1 this title was actually narrated by the author (which always makes me more comfortable with a book) and 2 in this book he shared his knowledge and even Thought Again about his older work. Happy to have consumed this and I am definitely sharing with all my friends and colleagues!

Waste of Time

I’ve seen Adam Grant pop up on a bunch of my favorite Podcasts and his books placed in front of Barnes & Nobles. So I was actually excited to dive into a book about thinking but man, what a waste of time - struggled to even get to Chapter 7. The entire book was the author saying “I” or “me” in an annoying voice. No real content in this book. 1/5 - do not recommend.

Great insights for our times

Adam Grant’s latest release couldn’t be more timely. In a world rife with conflicting views on everything, he offers anecdotes, insights, and advice on how to resolve conflict, reassess our goals, and remain open-minded. Highly recommended!

Interesting idea that lacks richness

Interesting idea but the book lacks structure and richness above all narrative is a different talent from writing a book so I hope the author will “Think Again “ and consider that in his next book and leave the narrative to professionals since that has a huge impact on the overall user experience

Wow!

Listened to the genesis of this book by Adam Grant in discussion and conversation with Malcolm Gladwell and Kat Cole. Knowing this dives deep into how to reshape our thoughts and reimagining life.

Thoughtful analysis

Great listen. Made me rethink how my actions and thoughts can be reshaped for more positive, thoughtful and more fulfilling interactions in both my internal and interpersonal relationships.
