The #1 New York Times bestseller that examines how people can champion new ideas—and how leaders can fight groupthink, from the author of Give and Take and co-author of Option B “Reading Originals made me feel like I was seated across from Adam Grant at a dinner party, as one of my favorite thinkers thrilled me with his insights and his wonderfully new take on the world.” —Malcolm Gladwell, author of Outliers and The Tipping Point “Originals is one of the most important and captivating books I have ever read, full of surprising and powerful ideas. It will not only change the way you see the world; it might just change the way you live your life. And it could very well inspire you to change your world.” —Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and author of Lean In With Give and Take, Adam Grant not only introduced a landmark new paradigm for success but also established himself as one of his generation’s most compelling and provocative thought leaders. In Originals he again addresses the challenge of improving the world, but now from the perspective of becoming original: choosing to champion novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battle conformity, and buck outdated traditions. How can we originate new ideas, policies, and practices without risking it all? Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt; how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children; and how leaders can build cultures that welcome dissent. Learn from an entrepreneur who pitches his start-ups by highlighting the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who overturned the rule of secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees for failing to criticize him, and a TV executive who didn’t even work in comedy but saved Seinfeld from the cutting-room floor. The payoff is a set of groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and improving the status quo.

Originals by Adam Grant | Summary & Analysis Preview: Originals provides an insightful window into the most innovative and creative minds that society has ever known. By investigating the reasons why some entrepreneurs were able to effectively transmit an idea or develop a product with mainstream acceptance while others were not, Adam Grant illuminates the ways in which even the most risk-averse can try to become what he calls “originals” in their own right. Originals are made—often self-made—and not born. These innovators make themselves different from others. Originals are not the thrill-seeking, gambling types. Although creative and risk-taking, they do not actively expose their innovations and creations to danger. They do not stand on the novelty of an idea alone: Originals seek feedback from a variety of sources and actively encourage dissent to further hone their creative argument… PLEASE NOTE: This is summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

The terror of atomic war, a paranoid arms race, a stark divide between rich and poor ó in The Originals, L.E. Vollickís debut novel, Reagan-era legacies such as these are seen from the perspective of nightclub subculture and the food bank. Magpie Smith confronts a street-level zeitgeist of fatalism in the early 1990s, bringing to life in the process a dysfunctional family of disenfranchised youth, from Benny, the self-glamorizing drug dealer to Jackson, the overprotective bouncer at the Underground. When Jackson brutally beats a would-be thief at the club, Magpie must rethink her allegiances. Through a haze of illness, inebriation and LSD, what becomes increasingly clear is that individual interests are beginning to blow the solidarity of the Underground apart. Vexed by the disappearance of her friend and intellectual guide, PK, Magpie tries to hold things together, but is led increasingly to question the fragile foundations of both her own small world and the larger one. Critical Comment ìI'm not exaggerating when I say that The Originals could be the Catcher in the Rye of our generation.î ó Hour, Montreal, March 2002 ìWhat sets The Originals apart from so many other novels about malcontent, clubbing youth ó aside from the author's arresting prose ó is the fact that Vollick has firmly rooted her novel in the political context of the 1980s and 1990s... In The Originals, character and context are indivisible, which makes the story simultaneously universal and deeply personal.î ó Clelia Scala, Paper Plates, 2003

Textual criticism is in a period of change, as it seeks to account for an ever-growing body of textual data as well as the development of new methodologies. Since the older methodologies cannot simply be modified to meet our present needs, Multiple Originals seeks to build bridges between methods of traditional textual criticism and those of orality and formulaic analysis. Examining practices of textual criticism across a wide range of texts and disciplines, this book challenges the assumption that there can be only one correct reading and argues for the presence of multivalences of both meaning and text. It demonstrates that in some cases multivalences were intended by the composer, while in other cases, during the periods from which our earliest extant manuscripts derive, they fell within the limits of variability acceptable to those who valued and transmitted those texts.
