What People are Saying About This

Jan Rivkin

‘Bold, provocative, and engaging. Moldoveanu and Martin challenge us to tap one of the most powerful sources of advantage in business — thinking (and thinking about thinking) ­— more effectively.’

Nitin Nohria

‘A sizzling foray into the habits of the minds of the best thinkers and leaders. Your own mind will not remain unscathed once you read this book: It will force you to rethink how you think!’

Jeffrey Pfeffer

Diaminds challenges readers to ask profound questions about thinking, personal meaning and purpose, and their relationship to successful leadership. Clearly written with astonishing intellectual range and reporting on insightful research on senior organizational leaders, this book offers not a recipe or checklist for success but something much more important: a way of improving each reader’s effectiveness as a problem-solver.’

Martin Reeves

‘An insightful and pragmatic treatise and guide ... the necessity and art of “thinking about thinking while thinking,” from two masters of heuristics. A must-read for all students and practitioners of problem solving in business and beyond.’
