The #1 New York Times bestseller that examines how people can champion new ideas in their careers and everyday life—and how leaders can fight groupthink, from the author of Think Again and co-author of Option B
“Filled with fresh insights on a broad array of topics that are important to our personal and professional lives.”—The New York Times DealBook
“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, COO of Facebook and author of Lean In
With Give and Take, Adam Grant not only introduced a landmark new paradigm for success but also established himself as one of his generation’s most compelling and provocative thought leaders. In Originals he again addresses the challenge of improving the world, but now from the perspective of becoming original: choosing to champion novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battle conformity, and buck outdated traditions. How can we originate new ideas, policies, and practices without risking it all?
Using surprising 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; how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children; and how leaders can build cultures that welcome dissent. Learn from an entrepreneur who pitches his start-ups by highlighting the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who overturned the rule of secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees for failing to criticize him, and a TV executive who didn’t even work in comedy but saved Seinfeld from the cutting-room floor. The payoff is a set of groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and improving the status quo.
“Reading Originals made me feel like I was seated across from Adam Grant at a dinner party, as one of my favorite thinkers thrilled me with his insights and his wonderfully new take on the world.” —Malcolm Gladwell, author of Outliers and The Tipping Point
“Part of the fun of Grant’s book is that he redeems behaviors we typically regard with puritan disdain. . . . Thought-provoking.”
—The New York Times Book Review
“Fresh research, counter-intuitive insights, lively writing, practical calls to action . . . Grant has a deserved reputation as an original thinker.”
—The Financial Times
“Grant’s latest looks set to join the required reading lists of many companies across America.”
“[Grant] examines what successful non-conformists . . . have in common, all in an effort to help the rest of us learn how to do things like bust myths, speak truth to power, and avoid groupthink without getting sidelined.”
—The Washington Post
“Adam Grant is a serious social scientist, master storyteller and infectious optimist. . . . Originals is filled with fresh insights on a broad array of topics that are important to our personal and professional lives. Mr. Grant has an uncanny ability to infuse a familiar topic with deeper meaning and leave the reader feeling hopeful and a little exhilarated.”
—The New York Times DealBook
“This extraordinary, wildly entertaining book sheds new light on the Age of Disruption. What does it take to make a meaningful difference? And how can you apply this insight to your own life? By debunking myths of success stories, challenging long-held beliefs of process, and finding commonality among those who are agents of profound change, Adam Grant gives us a powerful new perspective on not just our place in the world, but our potential to shake it up entirely.”
—JJ Abrams, director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, co-creator and executive producer of Lost, and cofounder of Bad Robot
“After launching hundreds of businesses—from airlines to trains, music to mobile, and now a spaceline—my biggest challenges and successes have come from convincing other people to see the world differently. Originals reveals how that can be done and will help you inspire creativity and change.”
—Sir Richard Branson, founder of The Virgin Group
“Originals is a fascinating, eye-opening read that will help you not just recognize your own unique gifts, but find the strength to challenge conventional wisdom to bring them to life. Using surprising studies and riveting stories, Adam Grant brilliantly shows us how to champion new ideas, bust persistent myths that hold us back and change not only our lives, but our world.”
—Arianna Huffington, cofounder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, and author of Thrive
“It can sometimes seem as if one must learn everything old before one can try anything new. Adam Grant does a masterful job showing that is not the case; we are lucky to have him as a guide.”
—Peter Thiel, cofounder of PayPal and Palantir, and author of Zero to One
“An urgent must read, a seminal work that will surprise you on every single page. Adam Grant has reset our expectations for what it means to be creative and what's required to make a difference. Share it with someone you care about.”
—Seth Godin, author of Linchpin

This gem is a joy to read, and it shatters the myth that greed is the path to success.”
—Robert Sutton, author of The No *sshole Rule and Good Boss, Bad Boss

با وجود اینکه هنوز بسیاری از کتابخوانها [ی حرفهای] ترجیح میدهند از کتاب چاپی برای مطالعه استفاده کنند ولی شمار کتابخوانهایی که بهتدریج از کتاب الکترونیک به عنوان مکمل یا منبع اصلی مطالعه استفاده میکنند کم نیست. فارغ از نوآوریهای جالبتوجه در زمینهی کتابخوانهایی همانند Kindle کمپانی آمازون، امکان و قابلیت نرمافزاری ساده، کارآمد و در دسترس مطالعهی کتاب با فرمت ePub از نظر بسیاری از کتابخوانها دور مانده است؛ بر اساس تجربهی مستقیم ما، شاهد بودهایم که بسیاری از افرادی که به صورت حرفهای به دنبال کتابهای زبان اصلی برای مطالعه روی کامپیوتر، تبلت و موبایل خود هستند با فرمت ePub آشنایی درستی ندارند.
پر واضح است که لمس کتاب بهصورت فیزیکی و بوی خوش کاغذ تجربهای لذتبخش و بیمانند است که همچنان در بین کتابخوانهای حرفهای در سراسر دنیا هواداران بسیاری دارد. البته، وقتی یکی از دغدغههای کتابخوان سهولت مطالعهی کتاب تحت هر شرایطی باشد اینجاست که نیاز به استفاده از کتاب الکترونیک حس میشود. با توجه به ویژگیهای مناسب کتابهای الکترونیک با فرمت ePub نگرانی ضعیف شدن بینایی و خستگی چشم بر اثر نگاه مستقیم به صفحهی نمایش تا حد بسیار زیاد و قابلتوجهی کاسته میشود.
کتاب الکترونیک با فرمت ePub این قابلیت را به خواننده میدهد تا بتواند رنگ زمینه، نوع فونت و سایز فونت را برای مطالعهی کتاب خود انتخاب کنند. همچنین خواننده این امکان را دارد که روی نوشته یادداشت بنویسد، جملهای را هایلایت کند و یا صفحه یا صفحاتی از کتاب را بوکمارک کند.
