read & download Black Box Thinking: The Surprising Truth About Success

Ng array of case studies and real world examples together with cutting edge research on marginal gains creativity and grit Matthew Syed tells the inside story of how success really happens and how we cannot grow unless we are prepared to learn from our mistakes. Mr Syed has written a book that looks at everything as a positive challenge but importantly rejects the idea of failure correctly and considers it an opportunity for learning Coming from a healthcare background I found that he was spot on with attitudes although perhaps makes less of the culture to seek judicial penalty and the effect on health professionals Nonetheless this is not a criticism as his well labelled case histories amplify on the progress made as he follows each story up It is open honest from those he has interviewed and have been willing to share their experiences There are tragedies within some of the stories that do not fail to bring an emotional tear Any weakness in the book does little to deviate from the main thrust and this review is not about critiuing this excellent work for its literary design although it is well written and has an engaging style it is just a little long in a few places But of course one should even consider this an opportunity If you fail to come away persuaded to change your attitude toward your own short comings then it is not the author s fault

    All of his writing is perceptive and insightful ( as his his work on Radio) and this was no different. A paradigm shift in 'encouraging people to learn from their mistakes' is happening in a number of areas of modern life ( including business, commerce, entertainment, sport and education) and Syed's book should be compulsory reading for all who seek to bring this about. Recommended.
