About Granted:

I believe that great minds don’t think alike– they challenge each other to think again. As an organizational psychologist, I’ve spent my career using the tools of social science to question widely held assumptions about motivation, intelligence, generosity, and creativity. 

In Granted, I share insights, evidence, books, and links that have caught my attention–and updates on my thinking and work. I’ll also be weighing in on questions from readers - if you’re interested, please submit yours here.

Below is some foofaraw that’s supposed to impress you. It’s written in the third person because my publisher drafted it… and because it’s less awkward that way.

Adam Grant is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of five books that have sold millions of copies and been translated into 45 languages–most recently Think Again. His TED talks on givers and takers, original thinking, and overcoming languishing have more than 30 million views, and he hosts the TED podcasts Re:Thinking and WorkLife. He’s a former magician and Junior Olympic springboard diver, and lives in Philly with his wife Allison and their three kids.
