Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know
By Adam Grant
Why this book?
Best-selling author and Wharton School psychologist Adam Grant posits that in today’s turbulent world, it’s increasingly important that we be able not only to think and learn, but to rethink and unlearn. To do this, we must develop new cognitive skills, a more open and curious mindset, and a humble attitude about what we actually know and don’t know. I particularly love the way Grant’s book gently guides us toward what he calls “confident humility”--a state wherein you’re comfortable admitting “I don’t know” but you also feel confident that “I can find out.” Grant also offers tips on how to encourage others to rethink and reconsider their views (the book even has a section in which Grant shows how to get Yankees fans to root for the hated Red Sox!)
