“No regrets” is often proclaimed as a philosophy of life. That’s nonsense, says Daniel Pink, the author of several bestselling books about business, work, creativity, and behavior. Regrets are a fundamental part of our lives, and everyone has them.
In The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward, Pink reveals the transformative power of our most misunderstood emotion: regret. He asserts that if we reckon with regrets in fresh and imaginative ways, we can enlist them to make smarter decisions, perform better at work and school, and deepen our sense of meaning and purpose.
Drawing on research in psychology, neuroscience, economics, and biology to challenge widely-held assumptions about emotions and behavior, plus the largest sampling of American attitudes about regret ever conducted, Pink identifies the four core regrets that most people have. By understanding what people regret the most, we can understand what they value the most. With Pink’s signature blend of big ideas and practical takeaways, The Power of Regret offers an indispensable guide for a life well lived.
Pink’s books include the bestsellers When and A Whole New Mind, as well as the #1 New York Times bestsellers Drive and To Sell is Human.
