    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)

    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 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.

    Kritikerstimmen

    Named a best nonfiction book of 2021 by The Washington Post

    "Renowned Wharton professor Grant spotlights one of the most important and impactful themes of our time: questioning one's own deeply held beliefs. Grant frames true knowledge as not knowing everything, but rather, listening as if we knew nothing at all in this intrepid book that is what our present moment requires." (Newsweek, "Our 21 Favorite Books of 2021") ]

    “In a world of aggressive certitude, Adam Grant’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.” (Financial Times)  

    “In his latest book, Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know, [Grant] is in vintage form.” (The Wall Street Journal)

    author forgets his benefit of hindsight

    zero use for real life. just a collection of trendy stories (coronavirus, facebook, etc.) where author indicates "what one ought to have done". well anyone can do it - it's not a skill. Charlie Munger givrs a far better advice. Adam Grant's book does not add value.

    More than expected

    I have purchased this audio book after it had been recommended by Ray Dalio. I didn't expect to get that much out of this book, but I thought I'd try. As a matter of fact, I have been pleasently surprised by how the author has been able to frame the concept of "thinking again" in such fun and joyful manner. And in the end, it has really brought me to think again!

    Not even close to Give and Take

    Big respect to anyone taking up the huge challenge in writing such a book. Yet I found 2-3 good thoughts and concepts, a lot of repetition known from other leading business books. Often a nice story, easy listening, not really the most advanced and helpful piece if your intend is to gain powerful insights how to master tough leadership situations.

    Couldn‘t finish

    Surely, I’m not an efficient rethinker: It took me around half the book to properly reconsider my decision to listen to it. This book seems to be written for people who are happy listening to anecdotal evidence and prefer a rather casual presentation of free-floating ideas and thoughts over - maybe more exacting - rigorous argumentation and depth.

    This book also seems to provide further proof that book ratings have become quite unreliable. Maybe my expectations are abnormal … or maybe there‘s some nicely polished marketing machinery at work …

    Spare yourself some hours and avoid the audio book

    Struggled to finish! Nothing really exciting to make the book worth listening even a single time. Disappointed 😞

    Some good points but a bit confusing

    There are some parts in this book that I found very interesting. Sometimes the examples Dr. Grant chose were too lengthy and could have been more concise. Also the structure is at some moments a bit confusing when his statements and the corresponding examples are all mixed up which made it a bit hard to understand clearly what exactly he is trying to say.

    A refreshing and insightful book

    For anyone who is not a scientist it will most likely be a mind opening and extremely valuable read. For a scientist a good way to refresh how to question hypothesis and lead convincing disputes.

    Eines der besten Sachbücher, das ich je gelesen habe!

    Kombiniert mit der nötigen Ehrlichkeit einem selber gegenüber hat „Think Again“ das Potenzial, die eigene Denkweise gegenüber der eigenen Meinung und anderen grundlegend zu ändern. Ich habe in bisher keinem Buch so viel über mich gelernt. Klare Leseempfehlung!
