A hallmark of wisdom is knowing when it's time to abandon some of your most treasured tools – and some of the most cherished parts of your identity.

Adam Grant

Introduction

We often confuse identity with opinion, preferring to seek others who share our views rather than question why we think the way we do. But in a time where public discourse is increasingly polarized, it has never been more important to examine our entrenched beliefs.

At 28, Adam Grant became the youngest-ever tenured professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where he specializes in organizational psychology. In this book, Grant shows us how to value the rigor of objective evidence over our own assumptions, with a list of practical advice to apply to our own thinking.

Grant maintains that the purpose of learning is to evolve our beliefs rather than affirm them. The book demonstrates how to cultivate a culture of exploration rather than dogma, at home and at work.
