I didn’t really know what this book was about, but I saw Adam Grant referenced in one of the promotions, and I wasn’t disappointed.

This book uses stories and psychology to explain why that’s not a reason to give up and how you can use your adversity to succeed in a world that throws all the obstacles in your way.

Edge is a fun, exciting read that takes you through research and personal anecdotes. Harvard Business School professor Laura Huang's first book is one that makes you excited for future publications! A great gift - either for yourself or a friend, colleague, or manager!
