By Margaret Heffernan
Margaret Heffernan argues that the largest threats and hazards we are facing are those we don't see--not simply because they're mystery or invisible, yet simply because we're willfully blind. A unique businesswoman and author, she examines the phenomenon and strains its imprint in our deepest and dealing lives, and inside of governments and firms, and asks: What makes us want lack of knowledge? What are we so fearful of? Why perform a little humans see greater than others? and the way do we change?
Covering every thing from our number of friends to the SEC, Bernard Madoff's traders, the embers of BP's refinery, the army in Afghanistan, and the dog-eat-dog international of subprime loan creditors, this provocative e-book demonstrates how failing to see--or admit to ourselves or our colleagues--the matters and difficulties in simple sight can damage inner most lives and convey down agencies. Heffernan explains how willful blindness develops earlier than exploring ways in which associations and contributors can strive against it. within the culture of Malcolm Gladwell and Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Margaret Heffernan's Willful Blindness is a journey de strength on human habit that might open your eyes.
