Publisher's Summary

The first definitive book on the science of self-awareness, Insight is a fascinating journey into everyone's favorite topic: themselves.
Do you understand who you really are? Or how others really see you? We all know people with a stunning lack of self-awareness - but how often do we consider whether we might have the same problem?
Research shows that self-awareness is the meta-skill of the 21st century - the foundation for high performance, smart choices, and lasting relationships. Unfortunately, we are remarkably poor judges of ourselves and how we come across, and it's rare to get candid, objective feedback from colleagues, employees, and even friends and family.
Integrating hundreds of studies with her own research and work in the Fortune 500 world, organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich shatters conventional assumptions about what it takes to truly know ourselves - like why introspection isn't a bullet train to insight, how experience is the enemy of self-knowledge, and just how far others will go to avoid telling us the truth about ourselves. Through stories of people who've made dramatic gains in self-awareness, she offers surprising secrets, techniques, and strategies to help listeners do the same - and therefore improve their work performance, career satisfaction, leadership potential, relationships, and more.
At a time when self-awareness matters more than ever, Insight is the essential playbook for surviving and thriving in an unaware world.


What the Critics Say

"Think of the most cluelessly unselfaware person you know: your boss, annoying neighbor, brother-in-law. How can we avoid being that person? And teach our kids to avoid being that person as well? Eurich summarizes the fascinating science about self insight, but - perhaps more importantly - she studies admirable individuals who are self-aware in a way that is applauded by their peers. You'll benefit from knowing what they know. Buy a copy for yourself and buy another to leave, anonymously, on your boss's desk." (Chip Heath, coauthor of New York Times best sellers Switch and Decisive)

Deserves a second listen.

The book is full of great information. In fact, so much good material that it deserves a second listen and maybe even buy a hard copy.

She helped me with a tough spot in my life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Insight?

When I listened to the story about Robert being bullied at school, his mother asked him, "what can he (the bully) teach you?" This helped me learn about my external self awareness and my challenge to stick up for myself.

Any additional comments?

I loved her book so much and her voice is so calming, that I'm listening to it for the second time. Thank you Tasha.
