Penguin Publishing Group

Overview: “In his new book, Adam Grant, one of his generation's most compelling and provocative thought leaders, again addresses the challenge of improving the world around us, but now from the perspective of becoming a trail-blazer: choosing to go against the grain, battle conformity, and buck outdated traditions. How can we stand up for new ideas, policies, and practices without risking our reputations, relationships, and careers? Using surprising studies and stories spanning the worlds of business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant debunks the common belief that successful nonconformists are born leaders who boldly embrace risk. Originals explains how anyone can spot opportunities for change, recognize a good idea, overcome anxiety and ambivalence, and make suggestions without being silenced.”
