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

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, the CD version I received contained no title, author, speaker, date, chapters etc in the file data making it difficult to use other than the obvious disc and track numbers, so a very poor product considering the Penguin publishers. Would have expected better. Packaging was minimal, especially taking into account the international delivery distance involved, resulting in some crushing of the edge of the box, however the CD's survived this ok.
I will re-read many times I'm sure .
I discussed a lot the content with my team at work and I suggested reading it to many people.
Mathew put forth a technical concept with a poetic bias, I read this book slapping myself for how terrible I have handled failure in the past. This material would make all quality professionals especially lean experts appreciate Failure Modes Effects Analysis.
If you buy this book, you won't regret that you did.
Have a fabulous read...
This book is more than just a treasure. It is a living creature that will challenge the current mindset of society. It will create a paradigm shift in how we perceive and treat individuals between today and tomorrow, a template that will prevent us doing the same mistakes over and over again no matter the situation.
I got inspired much by this book. It is great that this book became popular, so more people are aware of this problem.
