Waterstones Says

A radical call to arms against the limited boundaries of individual thought, Syed’s latest masterwork posits the idea that only collaborative thinking can unlock human potential and help to solve the burning problems of modern society. Characteristically learned yet winningly accessible, Rebel Ideas fundamentally challenges notions of conventional success.

THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

'A master of the genre' THE TIMES

'A gripping read, full of intelligence and perspective' JAMES DYSON

'Will change the way you think about success and even about life' JUDY MURRAY

'On a vital and still-overlooked topic, Matthew Syed has assembled a compelling base of evidence from a wide range of scientists. If that sounds intimidating, don't worry: Syed is a superb storyteller. I couldn't put the book down, and I learned so much. A stunning achievement' TIM HARFORD, AUTHOR OF THE UNDERCOVER ECONOMIST

Matthew Syed's phenomenal bestseller will change the way you think about success - forever. Rebel Ideas examines the power of 'cognitive diversity' - the ability to think differently about the world around us.

It explains how to harness our unique perspectives, pool our collective intelligence and tackle the greatest challenges of our age - from climate change to terrorism. It draws on a dazzling range of case studies, including the catastrophic failings of the CIA before 9/11, a fatal communication breakdown on top of Mount Everest and a moving tale of de-radicalisation in America's Deep South.

Rebel Ideas will strengthen any team or organisation, but has dozens of personal applications, too: from the art of personal reinvention to the remarkable benefits of personalised nutrition. It shows us how to become more creative, how to collaborate in a world becoming more interconnected, and how to break free of the echo chambers that surround us all.

It's time to think differently...
