"I read this cover to cover and learned something new on each page. Beautifully written, brilliantly researched--I'm recommending it to everyone I know!"--Angela Duckworth, New York Times bestselling author of Grit
"The most interesting, immediately actionable book I've read in quite a while. I walked away with new ideas for motivating employees, delighting customers, engaging students, and even planning family vacations. If life is a series of moments, the Heath brothers have transformed how I plan to spend mine."--Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg
"This terrific book is bursting with practical insights and memorable stories on every page. It's as relevant to product designers and meeting planners as it is to teachers and parents. I've already put many of its novel suggestions to work. Don't miss it."--Eric Ries, author of bestselling author of The Lean Startup, The Startup Way
"Flat out amazing."--Jake Knapp, New York Times bestselling author of Sprint
"A sincere introduction to how readers can shape and improve the peaks in their own experiences. Infused with positivity and enthusiasm . . . Readers hungry for a bigger slice of life will find this book valuable. Heuristic advice and life-affirming direction form a gratifying combination in this motivational handbook." --Kirkus
"Dan Heath has written the ultimate primer on the power of prevention, a work that deserves a prominent place on every leader's bookshelf. Packed with vivid stories and practical examples, Upstream is the rare book that can both revitalize your business and make our world a better place." --Daniel H. Pink, #1 New York Times bestselling author of When, Drive, and To Sell Is Human
"Upstream contains research and storytelling that informs, engages and, above all, entertains. If you want to stop firefighting problems and prevent them from happening in the first place, then you should read what Dan Heath has to say." --Charles Duhigg, New York Times bestselling author of The Power of Habit and Smarter Faster Better
"Psychology meets neuroscience and self-help in this engaging study by business writer Heath. . . . A smart, provocative book that guides readers to better decision-making when confronting seemingly intractable problems." --Kirkus Reviews
"[An] elegant manifesto . . . With the frenetic pace of modern life, Heath observes, it's easy to become accustomed to putting out fires instead of looking for the spark that's igniting them. . . . This is a pragmatic guide for those seeking big changes on either an individual or organizational level." --Publishers Weekly
"Heath presents a convincing argument for shifting resources 'upstream' and focusing on prevention rather than cure." --Booklist
"Upstream draws on examples from across the spectrum, from sport to business. But Heath is clever enough to focus on significant societal issues, such as sexual harassment, climate change, and school shootings, which gives the book a substantial feel that some more superficial problem-solving manuals lack." --Financial Times, Best Book of the Month
