Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know – Adam Grant

Thoughts: Decent. While I took some things from it useful for my personal interests, certain passages really felt like reading like a book for business executives.

(The notes below are not a summary of the book, but rather raw notes - whatever I thought, at the time, might be worth remembering. I read this as an e-book, so page numbers are as they appeared in the app I used, Libby.)
