Summary

Summary

Goodreads Members Most Anticipated Books of 2022 Forbes’s 10 Must-Read Career and Leadership Books for 2022 Inc’s 22 Books to Read in 2022 “I love that Daniel Pink is taking on one of the best (and toughest) teachers in my life—regret. …The world needs this book.” —Brené Brown, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of Dare to Lead From the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of When and Drive, a new book about the transforming power of our most misunderstood yet potentially most valuable emotion: regret. Everybody has regrets, Daniel H. Pink explains in The Power of Regret. They’re a universal and healthy part of being human. And understanding how regret works can help us make smarter decisions, perform better at work and school, and bring greater meaning to our lives.   Drawing on research in social psychology, neuroscience, and biology, Pink debunks the myth of the “no regrets” philosophy of life. And using the largest sampling of American attitudes about regret ever conducted as well as his own World Regret Survey—which has collected regrets from more than 15,000 people in 105 countries—he lays out the four core regrets that each of us has. These deep regrets offer compelling insights into how we live and how we can find a better path forward.   As he did in his bestsellers Drive, When, and A Whole New Mind, Pink lays out a dynamic new way of thinking about regret and frames his ideas in ways that are clear, accessible, and pragmatic. Packed with true stories of people's regrets as well as practical takeaways for reimagining regret as a positive force, The Power of Regret shows how we can live richer, more engaged lives.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If you have long assumed that 'no regrets’ is the way to live life, then this book is for you. The incomparably candid, clear, and concise Daniel Pink summarizes the latest science on looking backward on what could have been and shows how it can vault you forward to a happier, more productive, and principled life.” Angela Duckworth, New York Times bestselling author
“Daniel Pink is taking on one of the best (and toughest) teachers in my life—regret. I’ve always known that regret deepened my connection to myself and to others, but now, thanks to Dan’s research and storytelling, I understand why. The idea of 'no regrets' doesn’t mean living with courage. It means living without reflection. The world needs this book and more reflection. Now.” Brené Brown, New York Times bestselling author
