Where do the best ideas come from?



And how do we apply these ideas to the problems we face - at work, in the education of

our children, and in the biggest shared challenges of our age: rising obesity, terrorism

and climate change?



In this bold and inspiring new book, Matthew Syed - the bestselling author of Bounce and

Black Box Thinking - argues that individual intelligence is no longer enough; that the only

way to tackle these complex problems is to harness the power of our 'cognitive diversity'.



Rebel Ideas is a fascinating journey through the science of team performance. It draws

on psychology, economics, anthropology and genetics, and takes lessons from a dazzling

range of case-studies, including the catastrophic intelligence failings of the C IA before 9/

11, a communication breakdown at the top of Mount Everest, and a moving tale of

deradicalization in America's deep South. Plus: insights from the studio of the most

successful songwriter you've never heard of, the secrets of the most creative and

progressive schools in the world, and how the marriage decrees of the Catholic Church inadvertently inspired the Industrial Revolution.



It is a book that will strengthen any company, institution or team, but it also offers many

individual applications too: the remarkable benefits of personalised nutrition, advice on

how to break free of the echo chambers that surround us, and tips on how we can all

develop an 'outsider mindset'.



Rebel Ideas offers a radical blueprint for creative problem-solving. It challenges

hierarchies, encourages constructive dissent and forces us to think again about where the best ideas come from.
