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becoming original: choosing to champion novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battle conformity, and buck outdated traditions.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.

Delicious, yearning romance with a twist for fans of Lauren Kate, Allie Condie, and Cassandra Clare from the author behind Forgotten and Revived. I glance at the three baby portraits. I feel a familiar prickling on the back of my neck. Because I know there’s another picture somewhere – and the baby in that photo looks identical to the babies on the wall. Somewhere, there’s a photo of the Original. Ella, Betsey and I look like sisters: triplets, you might think. But that’s not what we are at all. We are clones in hiding. We split our lives and exist as one person in the outside world. And we’ve always been happy. But now I’ve fallen head-over-heels in love . . . and that changes everything. Because, to let love in, I need to be allowed to be Me. A brilliant hook, a tantalizing romance story and a seriously gorgeous heartthrob, The Originals is a must-read book for young adults. Praise for Forgotten and Revived: ‘I’m in love. With a book. And its name is Forgotten. I was completely blown away by it’ – A Dream of Books ‘A mind-bending experience that I devoured in one sitting . . . It still haunts me’ – Jay Asher, author of Thirteen Reasons Why ‘Entertaining and suspenseful . . . There is not a dull moment in this novel’ – VOYA starred review of Revived

Graced by more than 200 illustrations, many of them seldom seen and some never before published, this sparkling volume offers vivid portraits of the men and women who created country music, the artists whose lives and songs formed the rich tradition from which so many others have drawn inspiration. Included here are not only such major figures as Jimmie Rodgers, The Carter Family, Fiddlin' John Carson, Charlie Poole, and Gene Autry, who put country music on America's cultural map, but many fascinating lesser-known figures as well, such as Carson Robison, Otto Gray, Chris Bouchillon, Emry Arthur and dozens more, many of whose stories are told here for the first time. To map some of the winding, untraveled roads that connect today's music to its ancestors, Tony Russell draws upon new research and rare source material, such as contemporary newspaper reports and magazine articles, internet genealogy sites, and his own interviews with the musicians or their families. The result is a lively mix of colorful tales and anecdotes, priceless contemporary accounts of performances, illuminating social and historical context, and well-grounded critical judgment. The illustrations include artist photographs, record labels, song sheets, newspaper clippings, cartoons, and magazine covers, recreating the look and feel of the entire culture of country music. Each essay includes as well a playlist of recommended and currently available recordings for each artist. Finally, the paperback edition now features an extensive index.

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.

"We've been approached something like 25 times since the war. I kicked each out the window because they weren't going to make it with the integrity we require the story of the SAS to be told." --Colonel Sir David Stirling, OBE, DSO, Founder of the SAS Based on more than 120 hours of recently uncovered video and audio tape, this is the story of the birth of the SAS in the words of its founding members for the first time. Even David Stirling, founder of the regiment, contributed to the project--most historians believe he died without giving a single interview. It is also a very human story of a gang of misfits coming together to create a unit like no other: a maverick son of a Scottish laird; a boy who lied about his age to enlist; a policeman; a cheeky cockney; a Lincolnshire boxer; an Irish rugby international imprisoned for beating up his commanding officer; and, an Oxford rowing president and a quietly spoken man of God. This account covers the regiment's formation in 1941 to its supposed disbanding in 1945. With only two founding members alive today, it is not only an important document but a thrilling and moving read.

What makes America, American - The land of the free, the home of the brave, the land of opportunity? Since its founding in 1776, America has grown from the 13 original colonies to the 50 United States, all while nourishing a progressive and entrepreneurial spirit. On a mission to achieve ÐThe American Dream,Ó many people over the years have built, tinkered, invented, sung, danced, wrote, played, worked, imagined and reimagined, thus fostering a nation of seekers and creators. In order to identify what really defines America, the Editors of TIME looked at artifacts, entities, and ideas through the years; from California to the New York Island, we collected, compiled, and curated what we consider to be essential in understanding what makes this land our land.

In a work of striking breadth and clarity, Paul Conkin offers an even-handed and in-depth look at the major American-made forms of Christianity--a diverse group of religious traditions, each of which reflects a significant break from western Christian orthodoxy. Identifying six distinctive types, Conkin examines the major denominations representative of each original variety of American Christianity: restoration (Churches of Christ, Disciples of Christ); humanistic (Unitarians, Universalists); apocalyptic (Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses); Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints); spiritual (Christian Science, Unity); and ecstatic (Holiness and Pentecostal denominations). Focusing on the early years and maturation of these groups, he discusses their founders and leaders, origins and Old World roots, and essential doctrines and practices. Conkin closes each chapter with a guide to further reading. The first comprehensive survey of these American originals, this book will serve as a valuable resource on a number of religious traditions whose members not only comprise a significant percentage of the American population but also make up an increasing proportion of Christian converts worldwide.
