& #8220 In a world of aggressive certitude, Adam Grant& #8217 s latest book is a refreshing mandate for humble open-mindedness. Think Again offers a particularly powerful case for rethinking what we already know . . . that is not just a useful lesson it could be a vital one.& #8221 & #8212 Financial Times & #8220 In his latest book, Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don& #8217 t Know, [Grant] is in vintage form.& #8221 & #8212 The Wall Street Journal & #8220 Think Again delivers smart advice on unlearning assumptions and opening ourselves up to curiosity and humility.& #8221 & #8212 The Washington Post   & #8220 Adam Grant& #8217 s latest book pushes us to reconsider, rethink, reevaluate and reimagine our beliefs, thoughts, and identities and get to the core of why we believe what we do, why it is so important to us, and why we are steadfast to hold on to those ideas and beliefs. . . . It teaches us to stop digging our heels and doubling down and consider other people& #8217 s points of view so that we may grow our own.  Once again, Adam Grant succeeded in turning our very way of thinking upside down as he pushes us to examine the obvious.& #8221 & #8212 Forbes 'This book blends psychology and self-help to prove how doubt, failing, and rethinking are instrumental to improving ourselves and our world. . . . In three sections, he outlines why we struggle to embrace feedback, how we can help others rethink effectively, and how our communities can shift to encourage rethinking.' & #8212 Business Insider & #8220 Grant is a born communicator& #8212 engaging and impossibly articulate. . . . Think Again . . . digs into the synaptic weirdness of why we think how we do and how we know what (we think) we know. The bottom line: In a world that& #8217 s constantly changing, we could all benefit from deliberately reassessing our cherished opinions.& #8221 & #8212 Goodreads user & #8220 Adam Grant believes that keeping an open mind is a teachable skill. And no one could teach this hugely valuable skill better than he does in this wonderful read. The striking insights of this brilliant book are guaranteed to make you rethink your opinions and your most important decisions.& #8221 & #8212 Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize winner in economics and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Thinking, Fast and Slow   & #8220 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& #8217 ve never felt so hopeful about what I don& #8217 t know.& #8221 & #8212 Brené Brown, Ph.D., #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dare to Lead & #8220 Adam Grant makes a captivating argument that if we have the humility and curiosity to reconsider our beliefs, we can always reinvent ourselves. Think Again helped me learn about how great thinkers and achievers don& #8217 t let expertise or experience stand in the way of being perpetual students.& #8221 & #8212 M. Night Shyamalan, director of The Sixth Sense and Split   & #8220 Readers will find common ground in many of his compelling arguments (ideologies, sports rivals), making this a thought-provoking read.& #8221 & #8212 Booklist & #8220 [A] fast-paced account by a leading authority on the psychology of thinking.& #8221 & #8212 Library Journal, (starred review) & #8220 For anyone who wants to create a culture of learning and exploration at home, work  or school, Grant distills complex research into a compelling case for why each of us should continually question old assumptions and embrace new ideas and perspectives.& #8221 & #8212 Entrepreneur   & #8220 It& #8217 s the idea of flexibility and how to achieve it that I found most compelling in Think Again. As I read the book, I couldn& #8217 t help but reflect on the times I& #8217 d clung to an opinion past its expiration date or imagine what I might have learned from a debate, had I asked a question instead of hurling a rebuttal.& #8221 & #8212 Behavioral Scientist
