Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know
Flexibility. As of today, I consider Wharton professor Adam Grant’s book titled, Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know, to be wise, thoughtful and helpful to any general reader. Of course, thanks to what I read in this book, I’m very likely to reconsider my view and revise my assessment. Grant explores the importance of mental flexibility and humility in facing what we don’t know. He offers processes that can improve the ways in which we can use the approach of a scientist in more dimensions of life. Examine what works and revise multiple times as new data becomes available. In other words, remain flexible. Don’t get stuck, but actively unlearn things and relearn based on the current situation. Ask questions about why you do what you do every day. Start feeling good when you see where you are wrong. That’s an opportunity not a shortcoming. Misplaced confidence leads to heading in the wrong direction. Any reader who thinks he or she has an open mind may think again after reading this engaging and useful book. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Think Again from amazon.com.
