Synopsis

'Great stories, great science, and great practical advice about how, when, and why to break the rules' Angela Duckworth, international bestselling author of Grit

In Rebel Talent, award-winning Harvard Business School professor and behavioural scientist Francesca Gino shows us why happiest and most successful among us are those who break the rules and how we can all do it more.

The world’s best chef.
The pilot who landed his plane on a river.
The magician who made history.
The computer scientist who changed animated films forever.
What do they all have in common?

They are all rebels.

Francesca Gino has been studying rebellion and conformity for more than fifteen years. She has discovered that when we mindlessly follow rules and norms rather than constructively rebelling against them, we become less happy and less successful in every area of our lives. While rebels may seem disruptive, they are ultimately good for business: their passion, drive, curiosity and creativity can raise organizations to a new level.

When we break the rules, we fix our lives.

Great stories, great science, and great practical advice about how, when, and why to break the rules.

Angela Duckworth, author of Grit

In this groundbreaking book, Francesca Gino shows us how to spark creativity, excel at work, and become happier: By learning to rebel
