BrightSight Group speakers and authors Dan and Chip Heath’s new book has been reviewed in the Wall Street Journal.
From the review, “The other major psychological principle at work in “Switch” is the idea that, more than we suspect, outside influences control our actions. All the good intentions and native intelligence in the world can be defeated if the setting is not right. But small changes to one’s environment can have a big effect. Don’t try to resist the junk food lurking in your cupboard, get the cookies and chips out of the house. Instead of going it alone, try to recruit someone—a spouse, a sibling—who has a shared goal. For any effort at change to succeed, the Heaths argue, you have to “shape the path.” With “Switch” they have shaped a path that leads in a most promising direction.”
BrightSight Group speaker and author, Dan Gross’s latest book Dumb Money is reviewed in today’s NY Times. From the review, “Mr. Gross observes: “There must be a secret room in Harvard Business School where irony is vaporized from the brains of M.B.A.’s. For in time, the analogy to the origins of the nuclear bomb would prove all too apt.”
