Product description

Review

'Heffernan presents a readable analysis of the way powerful and intelligent people deliberately set aside crucial facts and turn a blind eye to fatal errors and frauds. A polemic against the dangers of docility and "groupthink" in every walk of life, it was another finalist for Business Book of the Year' --Books of the Year, Financial Times

'Writing in clear, flowing prose, (Heffernan) draws on psychological and neurological studies and interviews with executives, whistleblowers and white-collar criminals' --New York Times

'An engaging read, packed with cautionary tales...Heffernan shows why we close our eyes to facts that threaten our families, our livelihood, and our self-image - and, even better, she points the way out of the darkness' --Daniel H. Pink, author of DRIVE and A WHOLE NEW MIND

'Willful Blindness is a remarkable book...It is a tour de force of brilliant insights, broad span applications and written in the most engaging style' --Philip Zimbardo

'Uniquely broad in scope, insightfully analyzed, and engagingly written. This in-depth look at willful blindness is an excellent read' --Albert Bandura

'Entertaining and compellingly argued book' --Sunday Times Supplement

'Writing in clear, flowing prose, (Heffernan) draws on psychological and neurological studies and interviews with executives, whistleblowers and white-collar criminals...the book made me think long and hard about how the pace and priorities of our daily lives can hinder our ability to live as decently and as truthfully as we can' --New York Times

'Heffernan's cogent, riveting look at how we behave at our worst encourages us to strive for our best' --US Publishers' Weekly

'A polemic against the dangers of docility and "groupthink" in every walk of life, it was a finalist for Business Book of the Year' --Books of the Year, Financial Times

`An engaging read... With deft prose and page after page of keen insights, Heffernan shows why we close our eyes to facts that threaten our families, our livelihood, and our self-image - and, even better, she points the way out of the darkness' --Daniel H. Pink, author of DRIVE and A WHOLE NEW MIND
