Discover the critical art of rethinking: how questioning your opinions 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, the most crucial skill may be the ability to rethink and unlearn. Recent global and political changes have forced many of us to re-evaluate our opinions and decisions. Yet we often still favour the comfort of conviction over the discomfort of doubt, and prefer opinions that make us feel good, instead of ideas that make us think hard. Intelligence is no cure, and can even be a curse. The brighter we are, the blinder we can become to our own limitations.
Adam Grant - Wharton's top-rated professor and #1 bestselling author - offers bold ideas and rigorous evidence to show how we can embrace the joy of being wrong, encourage others to rethink topics as wide-ranging as abortion and climate change, 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, and how a vaccine whisperer convinces anti-vaxxers to immunize their children. Think Again is an invitation to let go of stale opinions and prize mental flexibility, humility, and curiosity over foolish consistency. If knowledge is power, knowing what you don't know is wisdom.

In 2015 Sheryl Sandberg’s husband, Dave Goldberg, died suddenly at the age of forty-eight. Sandberg and her two young children were devastated, and she was certain that their lives would never have real joy or meaning again.
Just weeks later, Sandberg was talking with a friend about the first father-child activity without a father. They came up with a plan for someone to fill in. “But I want Dave,” she cried. Her friend put his arm around her and said, “Option A is not available. So let’s just kick the shit out of Option B.”
Everyone experiences some form of Option B. We all deal with loss: jobs lost, loves lost, lives lost. The question is not whether these things will happen but how we face them when they do.
Thoughtful, honest, revealing and warm, OPTION B weaves Sandberg’s experiences coping with adversity with new findings from Adam Grant and other social scientists. The book features stories of people who recovered from personal and professional hardship, including illness, injury, divorce, job loss, sexual assault and imprisonment. These people did more than recover—many of them became stronger.
OPTION B offers compelling insights for dealing with hardships in our own lives and helping others in crisis. It turns out that post-traumatic growth is common—even after the most devastating experiences many people don’t just bounce back but actually bounce forward. And pre-traumatic growth is also possible: people can build resilience even if they have not experienced tragedy. Sandberg and Grant explore how we can raise strong children, create resilient communities and workplaces, and find meaning, love and joy in our lives.
“Dave’s death changed me in very profound ways,” Sandberg writes. “I learned about the depths of sadness and the brutality of loss. But I also learned that when life sucks you under, you can kick against the bottom, break the surface and breathe again.”

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again illuminates how we can elevate ourselves and others to unexpected heights.
We live in a world that's obsessed with talent. We celebrate gifted students in school, natural athletes in sports, and child prodigies in music. But admiring people who start out with innate advantages leads us to overlook the distance we ourselves can travel. We underestimate the range of skills that we can learn and how good we can become. We can all improve at improving. And when opportunity doesn't knock, there are ways to build a door.
Hidden Potential offers a new framework for raising aspirations and exceeding expectations. Adam Grant weaves together groundbreaking evidence, surprising insights, and vivid storytelling that takes us from the classroom to the boardroom, the playground to the Olympics, and underground to outer space. He shows that progress depends less on how hard you work than how well you learn. Growth is not about the genius you possess-it's about the character you develop. Grant explores how to build the character skills and motivational structures to realize our own potential, and how to design systems that create opportunities for those who have been underrated and overlooked.
Many writers have chronicled the habits of superstars who accomplish great things. This book reveals how anyone can rise to achieve greater things. The true measure of your potential is not the height of the peak you've reached, but how far you've climbed to get there.
Wer noch mal nachdenkt, geht schlauer durchs Leben
Intelligenz wird üblicherweise verstanden als die Fähigkeit, zu denken und zu lernen. Doch in einer Welt, die sich rasant verändert, brauchen wir etwas ganz anderes genauso dringend: die Fähigkeit, Gedachtes zu überdenken und sich von Erlerntem wieder zu lösen.
Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele aus dem täglichen Leben zeigt der internationale Bestsellerautor Adam Grant: Nur wer die Komfortzone fester Überzeugungen verlässt, wer Zweifel und unterschiedliche Ansichten zulässt, ohne sich in seinem Ego bedroht zu fühlen, eröffnet sich die großartige Chance, wirklich neue Erkenntnisse zu gewinnen.
Wissen ist Macht. Erkennen, was wir nicht wissen können, ist Weisheit
»Adam Grant ist der Meinung, dass geistige Offenheit eine Fähigkeit ist, die man lernen kann. Und von keinem kann man diese immens nützliche Fähigkeit besser lernen als von ihm. Die bemerkenswerten Einsichten seines brillanten Buches werden dazu führen, dass Sie Ihre Ansichten und Ihre wichtigsten Entscheidungen überdenken. Garantiert.«
Daniel Kahneman, Nobelpreisträger und Bestsellerautor (Schnelles Denken, langsames Denken)
“Adam Grant acredita que podemos aprender a ter a mente aberta. E ninguém melhor do que ele para ensinar essa habilidade valiosíssima neste livro maravilhoso.” – Daniel Kahneman, autor de Rápido e devagar
“Leitura obrigatória para quem quer criar uma cultura de aprendizado e experimentação, seja em casa, no trabalho ou na escola.” – Bill Gates
Adam Grant examina a crucial arte de repensar: aprender a questionar nossas opiniões e a abrir a mente das outras pessoas, o que pode nos levar à excelência no trabalho e à sabedoria na vida.
A inteligência geralmente é vista como a capacidade de pensar e aprender, mas em um mundo em rápida mudança, há outro conjunto de habilidades cognitivas que podem ser mais importantes: a capacidade de repensar e desaprender.
A maioria das pessoas prefere o conforto da convicção ao desconforto da dúvida. Em geral só damos ouvidos às opiniões que confirmam as nossas, descartamos ideias que nos façam pensar muito e vemos o desacordo como uma ameaça. O custo disso pode ser bem maior do que se imagina.
Com ideias ousadas e evidências rigorosas, o psicólogo organizacional Adam Grant investiga neste livro como abraçar a alegria de estar errado, trazer nuances para conversas difíceis e incentivar o aprendizado contínuo.
Você vai conhecer excelentes métodos para promover o repensamento, utilizados, por exemplo, por um músico negro que convence supremacistas brancos a abandonar o ódio e um médico que usa seu poder de persuasão para fazer os pais vacinarem seus filhos.
Além disso, vai encontrar dicas práticas para ter conversas mais produtivas, mesmo que envolvam visões de mundo opostas.
Pense de novo demonstra com clareza e bom humor que é possível manter a mente aberta sem perder o poder de convencimento nem a autoconfiança. Se conhecimento é poder, saber o que não sabemos é sabedoria.
This delightful book--one of Amazon's 2019 Holiday Gift Picks and Most Anticipated Books--is designed to start conversations with kids about generosity. In the tradition of Goodnight Gorilla, the words are intentionally spare. The book is meant to be read interactively, with adults posing questions so kids can guess what's happening (and why). Praised by both parents and teachers for sparking imagination and eliciting discussion, the story can be interpreted differently in every family, by every child, and reinterpreted many times over.
Give the gift of this clever, earnest book about generosity--a new and nourishing fable for every child's library (and one that includes a delightfully innovative cover approach that requires the reader to unfasten the Velcroed cover for a fun unboxing effect!). It's a gift that keeps on giving.
"Truly phenomenal . . . Kristen [Bell]'s favorite book we've read to the kids in a year." --Dax Shepard of the podcast "Armchair Expert"
