The Power of Regret Summary

The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward by Daniel H. Pink

'No regrets.' You've heard people proclaim it as a philosophy of life. That's nonsense, even dangerous, says Daniel H. Pink in his latest bold and inspiring work. Everybody has regrets. They're a fundamental part of our lives. And if we reckon with them in fresh and imaginative ways, we can enlist our regrets to make smarter decisions, perform better at work and school, and deepen our sense of meaning and purpose.

In The Power of Regret, Pink draws on research in psychology, neuroscience, economics and biology to challenge widely-held assumptions about emotions and behaviour. Using the largest sampling of attitudes about regret ever conducted from his own World Regret Survey - which has collected regrets from more than 16,000 people in 105 countries - he identifies the four core regrets that most people have. These four regrets, Pink argues, operate as a 'photographic negative' of the good life. By understanding what people regret the most, we can understand what they value the most. And by following the simple, science-based, three-step process that he sets out, we can transform our regrets in a positive force for working smarter and living better.

With Pink's signature blend of big ideas and practical takeaways, captivating stories and crisp humour, The Power of Regret offers an urgent and indispensable guide for a life well-lived.

The Power of Regret Reviews

I love that Daniel Pink is taking on one of the best (and toughest) teachers in my life - regret. I've always known that regret deepened my connection to myself and to others, but now, thanks to Dan's research and storytelling, I understand why. The idea of no regrets doesn't mean living with courage. It means living without reflection. The world needs this book and more reflection. Now -- BRENE BROWN
In The Power of Regret, Dan Pink trains his intellect and wit on a deeply important subject that we've all experienced but few have explored. The stories he tells are fascinating - and so are the insights he draws from them. Whatever regrets you might have in your life, reading this book won't be one of them -- SUSAN CAIN
If you have long assumed that no regrets is the way to live life, then this book is for you. The incomparably candid, clear and concise Daniel Pink summarises the latest science on looking backward on what could have been and shows how it can vault you forward to a happier, more productive and principled life -- ANGELA DUCKWORTH, author of GRIT
