The Power of Regret cover


Everybody has regrets. They're a fundamental part of our lives. In The Power of Regret, Pink explains how we can enlist our regrets to make smarter decisions, perform better and deepen our sense of meaning and purpose.

Drawing on the largest sampling of attitudes about regret ever conducted from his own World Regret Survey, Pink identifies the four core regrets that most people have. With his signature blend of big ideas and practical takeaways, captivating stories and crisp humour, he argues that by understanding what people regret the most, we can understand what they value the most. We can transform our regrets into a positive force for working smarter and living better.

I love that Daniel Pink is taking on one of the best (and toughest) teachers in my life - regret. I've always known that regret deepened my connection to myself and to others, but now, thanks to Dan's research and storytelling, I understand why. The idea of "no regrets" doesn't mean living with courage. It means living without reflection. The world needs this book and more reflection. Now -- BRENÉ BROWN
