This Ideas Roadshow Collection includes the following 5 Ideas Roadshow conversations which are based on in-depth filmed conversations with 4 renowned social psychologists and a former top 10 tennis player:

I. Being Social - A conversation with Roy Baumeister, Professor of Psychology at the University of Queensland. This book explores Roy Baumeister's unique combination of biological and psychological thinking from recognizing essential energetic factors involved with willpower and decision-making, to framing free will in evolutionary biological terms to measuring the numbness associated with social rejection as a form of analgesic response, and more.

II. Mindsets: Growing Your Brain - A conversation with Carol Dweck, Professor of Psychology at Stanford University. This book provides behind-the-scenes insights into the development of Carol's groundbreaking work on growth mindsets and fixed mindsets: how different ways of thinking influence learning ability and success.

Janko is a former professional tennis player, with a career-high singles ranking of world No. 8. This book explores what it takes to achieve excellence in professional sports, what mindset is needed to reach one's true potential and a penetrating and inspirational window into the social psychology of professional tennis.

IV. The Science of Emotions - A conversation with Barbara Fredrickson, Professor of Psychology at UNC Chapel Hill. Topics covered by this extensive conversation include Barbara's work on the science of positive emotions, including her broaden-and-build theory, the undoing effect and upward spirals, while highlighting relevant evolutionary-driven hypotheses together with measurement details of empirical studies.

V. Critical Situations - A conversation with Philip Zimbardo, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Stanford University. During this wide-ranging conversation Philip Zimbardo relates his intriguing life history and the survival techniques that he developed from the particular dynamics of his upbringing in the Bronx to his quarantine experiences and the impact the different experiences in his youth had on the development of his personal situational awareness and how that influenced his psychological research, and more.
