Review

Praise for Black Box Thinking

"Mathew Syed has issued a stirring call to redefine failure. Failure shouldn’t be shameful and stigmatizing, he explains. Instead, he shows that failure can be exciting and enlightening — an essential ingredient in any recipe for success. Full of well-crafted stories and keenly deployed scientific insights, Black Box Thinking will forever change the way you think about screwing up."
DANIEL PINK, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human

Praise for Bounce

"Insightful and entertaining"
DAN ARIELY, author of Predictably Irrational

"The most important book I’ve read over the past six months."
PETER ORSZAG, economist, in The New York Times

"A fascinating subject and Syed is a dazzling writer."
OWEN SLOT, The Times London

"Everything Mathew Syed Writes is worth reading."
LYNN TRUSS, bestselling author of Eat, Shoots & Leaves
