Better facts tend to be counterproductive on hot-button issues like gun control. As Tali Sharot notes in her book The Influential Mind . . . The smarter a person is, the greater his or her ability to rationalize and reinterpret discordant information, and the greater the polarizing boomerang effect is likely to be — David Brooks ― New York Times


In the age of big data, it’s easy to assume that cold, hard facts can drive change. Not so fast, argues cognitive scientist Tali Sharot, whose new book, The Influential Mind, explores how emotion tends to overpower reason when it comes to human decision-making ― Time


The Influential Mind will make you gasp with surprise – and laugh with recognition. Many of our most cherished beliefs about how to influence others turn out to be wrong; Sharot sets them right. Packed with practical insights, this profound book will change your life. An instant classic — Cass R. Sunstein, Harvard University; former Administrator for the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs and bestselling coauthor of Nudge


Take it from a leading neuroscientist: every day, we all miss opportunities to influence others. This timely, intriguing book explains why it’s so difficult to shift the attitudes and actions of others – and what we can do about it — Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take

This brilliant and timely book is essential reading for anyone who wants an intelligent, principled guide to getting their ideas heard and their hopes fulfilled. If you follow Tali Sharot’s scientifically-backed guidance, you’ll become one of those great communicators and changemakers that everyone raves about – persuasive and inspirational in equal measure — Caroline Webb, author of How to Have a Good Day
