“Originals is one of the most important and captivating books I have ever read, full of surprising and powerful ideas. It will not only change the way you see the world; it might just change the way you live your life. And it could very well inspire you to change your world.” —Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer, Facebook
What does it mean to be original? Using studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports and entertainment, Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt. Grant explores different ways to nurture and encourage originality both personally and professionally.
Grant has been recognized as Wharton's top-rated teacher for four straight years and is one of Malcolm Gladwell's favorite social science writers.
