Think Again

Those of you who are familiar with my blog and reading habits might recognize that Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know by Adam Grant is not the type of book I would choose. And, others who know my profession might guess that it was the summer reading book for school (nothing like finishing it the day before it’s due to be discussed). Well, I have to admit, I don’t love this type of book, I wouldn’t have picked it up on my own, and, I will admit that there are take-aways that I enjoyed and will think about further and in life and work. So, it was worth reading. The best quote is from the second to last page: “…what we need more is a leader who accepts uncertainty, acknowledges mistakes, learns from others, and rethinks plans.” There. You don’t need to read it. Like many of these types of books, you can get most of the content from the prologue and epilogue. The stories interspersed are good, though, and the book is definitely easily digestible and entertaining. Should this be your type of book (Dad, I’m thinking of you), it’s a good read.
