Book of the Week: Thanks for the Feedback

Thanks for the Feedback: The Science and Art of Receiving Feedback Well

Very few people are good at or good with feedback. Yet it is the only way we can get better at what matters: work, marriage, friendships. This book helps you give better feedback, get better at making sense of the feedback you’re given. And maybe, most importantly, what to do with that feedback. Including, sometimes, not taking it at all.

This book is just terrific. Well written, yet I had to stop every so often to digest the ideas and meditate on my own life. I’ve used it in class over and over as well, as I teach students about critique of both their work and how they work.  No matter what you do, it should be in your personal library.
