Rebel Ideas will take readers on a fascinating journey, uncovering the best-kept secrets of some of the world’s most successful teams. It brings insights from psychology, anthropology and network theory, and draws upon a dazzling range of intriguing case-studies, including the catastrophic intelligence failings of the CIA before 9/11, a communication breakdown at the top of Mount Everest, and a moving tale of de-radicalisation in America’s deep South.
It is a book that will strengthen any company, institution or team, but it also offers many individual applications too: the remarkable benefits of personalised nutrition, advice on how to break free of the echo chambers that surround us, and tips on how we can all develop an innovative ‘outsider mindset’.
Rebel Ideas offers a radical guide to success that can as easily be applied to business as it can to everyday life. It challenges hierarchies, encourages constructive dissent and forces us to think again about where the best ideas really come from.
‘Today there is a lot of talk about the importance of diversity, but the real benefits of engaging with varied perspectives and thinking differently about the world, aren’t widely understood. My ambition is to leave readers with a sense of why diversity — and specifically cognitive diversity — is central to humanity’s progress, and why people who are open to different viewpoints will enjoy more fulfilling and successful lives.’
— Matthew Syed
