Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know (Unabridged)

AUDIOBOOK ∙ 2021

Adam Grant

We’ve often heard the saying that you should go with your first instinct, whether you’re picking out a paint color or answering an SAT question. But organizational psychologist Adam Grant is here to prove that this kind of thinking may be wrong. Using case studies about the decline of Blackberry and a tragic string of accidents at NASA, he reveals how disastrous it can be to simply make the choice that “feels right” or “has always been done this way.” Narrating the audiobook himself, Grant sounds like a cool young professor opening up your worldview, and he adds extra audio snippets and recordings that help illustrate his points. (Wait until you hear the section on debating!) His suggestions on learning to use critical thinking instead of instinct are easy to follow, and we particularly loved his advice on creating a psychological safety zone where questions are encouraged and failure isn’t the end of the world. It turns out changing your mind doesn’t make you indecisive—it makes you smart.
