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.
"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."

Chicken noodle soup for the faux-llectual
I was hoping for an analysis of our inner processes as seen through experiments and statistical surveys. Instead, I was given portrait after portrait of *unicorns* who run into crummy circumstances, change their minds and begin the *thrive*.
The use of buzz words in this *bold* work were a clue to the inner lack of substance. So much garnish, so little meat.
I think authors that can read their own books are awesome, and I have no problem with her narration skills. I didn't realize she was the author at first; I just thought she was really "in tune" with the content.
George Washington, Ben Franklin, Ben, Susan, all these portraits. History must be full of people who did bad and then good. And no matter the circumstances, they could be painted to have *discovered their inner workings*.
I really thought this books would speak to the power understanding how others see us over even more self-indulgent know-thyself mantras. This book is self-aware of works that have come before, but it falls into the same anecdotal traps without sufficiently setting itself apart.
