In this excellent audiobook, organizational psychologist Adam Grant uses storytelling and research summaries to explain the value of staying open-minded when forming our beliefs. As narrator, he sounds enthusiastic without overselling his ideas and cheery without trivializing his thinking. His boyish timbre and casual approach will make listeners like him and appreciate the wisdom in his advice. He describes how people become attached to their beliefs and avoid disagreeing with others, especially in group settings. He says that embracing doubt about what we believe allows us to hear others' viewpoints and think more clearly. And with respect to influencing others whose thinking is stuck, he describes how creating common ground works best to open minds. T.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
