About the book

Filled with new perspectives on a wide range of topics that affect our personal and professional life.

The DealBook of The New York Times

 

 

Originals is one of the most essential and engrossing books I've ever read, full of unexpected and compelling ideas." It will not only alter your perspective of the world, but it may also alter the way you conduct your life. And it has the potential to motivate you to make a difference in the world.

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's COO and author of the book Lean In

 

Adam Grant established himself as one of his generation's most compelling and provocative thought leaders with Give and Take, which not only provided a groundbreaking new paradigm for success but also positioned him as one of the most fascinating and provocative thinking leaders. He returns to the task of improving the world in Originals, but this time from the perspective of being original: choosing to advocate innovative ideas and principles that go against the grain, fight conformity, and defy obsolete customs. How do we come up with new ideas, policies, and practices without putting everything on the line?

 

Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without being silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt, using surprising studies and stories from business, politics, sports, and entertainment; how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children; and how leaders can build cultures that welcome dissent. Learn from an entrepreneur who pitches his start-ups by emphasizing the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who overturned the CIA's rule of secrecy, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees for criticizing him, and a TV executive who didn't work in comedy but saved Seinfeld from the chopping block. The payout is a series of game-changing ideas for rejecting conformity and enhancing the status quo.
