Over the years, we have partnered with some of the most radical, outrageous, experimental people in the world, and we've witnessed first hand the power of thinking wrong. We've seen seemingly crazy ideas yield incredible results, and we have endeavored to study and understand the secrets and actions of those who successfully operate outside the predictable expectations of business and of culture. We began to see a connection in how these people behave and make decisions, in how they communicate their work, and in whom they deflect from the status quo. Our gut told us something was going on here. Wrong Thinkers were able to overcome obstacles both in themselves and in the culture at large to achieve exceptional results. We have since identified important moments when, for the rest of us, the flame of possibility gets extinguished. We have developed six Think Wrong Practices that simultaneously advance compelling solutions while defending them from attacks by well-meaning Right Thinkers.We also see tha conviction, determination, and persistence alone are not enough to escape the status quo, or those hell-bent to protect it. Thinking right already has its language and its tools; it's already got its best practices, defenses, and case studies. In the think-right world of brainstorming, focus groups, marketing surveys, number crunching, bottom -lines, and ROI-focused agendas, it's hard to defend something nebulous and new. Wrong thinkers need their own language, frameworks, tools, and techniques to counter the existing norms. This book is our attempt to arm you--and people everywhere--so you may conceive the inconceivable and bring along others to help implement your status-quo-busting solutions.In the coming chapters, you'll learn about the six Think Wrong Practices that we have developed over the past two decades. These practices are particularly effective at key moments when right thinking tries to stop you.

Es wird alles immer schlimmer, eine schreckliche Nachricht jagt die andere: Die Reichen werden reicher, die Armen ärmer. Es gibt immer mehr Kriege, Gewaltverbrechen, Naturkatastrophen. Viele Menschen tragen solche beängstigenden Bilder im Kopf. Doch sie liegen damit grundfalsch. Unser Gehirn verführt uns zu einer dramatisierenden Weltsicht, die mitnichten der Realität entspricht, wie der geniale Statistiker und Wissenschaftler Hans Rosling erklärt. Wer das Buch gelesen hat, wird • ein sicheres, auf Fakten basierendes Gerüst besitzen, um die Welt so zu sehen, wie sie wirklich ist • die zehn gängigsten Arten von aufgebauschten Geschichten erkennen • bessere Entscheidungen treffen können • wahre Factfulness erreichen – jene offene, neugierige und entspannte Geisteshaltung, in der Sie nur noch Ansichten teilen und Urteile fällen, die auf soliden Fakten basieren

An impassioned, funny, probing, fiercely inconclusive, nearly-to-the-death debate about life and art—beers included. Caleb Powell always wanted to become an artist, but he overcommitted to life (he’s a stay-at-home dad to three young girls), whereas his former professor David Shields always wanted to become a human being, but he overcommitted to art (he has five books coming out in the next year and a half). Shields and Powell spend four days together at a cabin in the Cascade Mountains, playing chess, shooting hoops, hiking to lakes and an abandoned mine; they rewatch My Dinner with André and The Trip, relax in a hot tub, and talk about everything they can think of in the name of exploring and debating their central question (life and/or art?): marriage, family, sports, sex, happiness, drugs, death, betrayal—and, of course, writers and writing. The relationship—the balance of power—between Shields and Powell is in constant flux, as two egos try to undermine each other, two personalities overlap and collapse. This book seeks to deconstruct the Q&A format, which has roots as deep as Plato and Socrates and as wide as Laurel and Hardy, Beckett’s Didi and Gogo, and Car Talk’s Magliozzi brothers. I Think You’re Totally Wrong also seeks to confound, as much as possible, the divisions between “reality” and “fiction,” between “life” and “art.” There are no teachers or students here, no interviewers or interviewees, no masters in the universe—only a chasm of uncertainty, in a dialogue that remains dazzlingly provocative and entertaining from start to finish. James Franco's adaptation of I Think You're Totally Wrong into a film, with Shields and Powell striving mightily to play themselves and Franco in a supporting role, will be released later this year. From the Hardcover edition.

The Guardian publishes over forty thousand reader comments a day below the line. This is a miscellany of the best and most baffling thoughts from their witty, well-meaning readers. In the book, Guardian readers ponder the big questions ('Am I the only one who thinks that ham and cheese is a ghastly mix?') reflect with nostalgia on better days ('Airline employees were so much more agreeable back when they were all drunk') and share hard-won wisdom ('Dishwashers make lousy salmon poachers'). This book is best enjoyed with a soy latte in hand and yoga mat under the arm. Please store in an eco-friendly tote bag.

Seine Großeltern versuchten, mit Fleiß und Mobilität der Armut zu entkommen und sich in der Mitte der Gesellschaft zu etablieren. Doch letztlich war alles vergeblich. J. D. Vance erzählt die Geschichte seiner Familie — eine Geschichte vom Scheitern und von der Resignation einer ganzen Bevölkerungsschicht. Armut und Chaos, Hilflosigkeit und Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol: Genau in diesem Teufelskreis befinden sich viele weiße Arbeiterfamilien in den USA — entfremdet von der politischen Führung, abgehängt vom Rest der Gesellschaft, anfällig für populistische Parolen. Früher konnten sich die »Hillbillys«, die weißen Fabrikarbeiter, erhoffen, sich zu Wohlstand zu schuften. Doch spätestens gegen Ende des 20sten Jahrhunderts zog der Niedergang der alten Industrien ihre Familien in eine Abwärtsspirale, in der sie bis heute stecken. Vance gelingt es wie keinem anderen, diese ausweglose Situation und die Krise einer ganzen Gesellschaft eindrücklich zu schildern. Sein Buch bewegte Millionen von Lesern in den USA und erklärt nicht zuletzt den Wahltriumph eines Donald Trump.

Right and Wrong Thinking, Belief, and Confession explains that what you receive into you, by especially the senses of sight and hearing, will affect what you think. What you think or mediate on will affect what you believe; and what you believe will affect what you confess; and what you confess will affect what you receive or possess. God tells us to pay attention to His Word and to keep looking at His Word. If we do, we will meditate on it, do it, and make our ways prosperous and successful.

“Our response to moral questions is not determined by politics, economics, personal preference, popular opinion, or human reasoning. It is, instead, grounded in what God has told us is true about ourselves and our world....God’s Word offers sanity, clarity, and hope.” --John MacArthur Trusted Voices Offer Biblical Responses to Today’s Hot Issues One of the greatest challenges facing Christians today is the powerful influence of secular thinking. From all directions we’re fed a constant barrage of persuasive—yet unbiblical—worldviews. This makes it difficult to know where to stand on today’s most talked-about issues. The leadership team at Grace Community Church, along with their pastor, John MacArthur, provide much-needed discernment and clarity in the midst of rampant confusion. Using the Bible as the foundation, you’ll learn how to develop a Christian perspective on key issues—including... political activism environmentalism the cult of celebrity entertainment and escapism homosexual marriage abortion, birth control, and surrogacy euthanasia and suicide disasters and epidemics immigration God and the problem of evil Also included is a topical reference guide of Bible verses that address key concerns—a guide that will arm you with right thinking and biblical answers to challenging questions.
