Reviews

We now live in a whitewater world of unpredictability. Change occurs at a rate that the human mind is not prepared for. Arie Kruglanski's groundbreaking book is the place to go to discover how to embrace uncertainty and turn the stress of whitewater to your growth and benefit * Martin Seligman, author of The Hope Circuit *
One of my very favorite psychologists in the world tackles a subject that is both timeless and timely. Drawing on four decades of research and reflection, Arie Kruglanski shows us that though uncertainty is inevitable, how we react to it is not * Angela Duckworth, bestselling author of Grit *
This is the book we've been waiting for. With his tremendous spirit, wit, knowledge, and wisdom, Kruglanski give us a book that helps us understand and navigate the uncertain world we live in. It's both based on science and filled with humanity-with deep compassion and benevolent guidance. It is a book for our time * Carol Dweck, author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success *
If you're not sure if you need this book, then you do. Original, insightful, and thought-provoking, the world's expert on the psychology of uncertainty reveals what science can tell us about our lives on the razor's edge * Daniel Gilbert, author of the New York Times bestseller Stumbling on Happiness *
I enthusiastically recommend "Uncertain." Arie Kruglanski is one the most prolific writers in modern psychological science. Here, he explores the relationship that we, as humans, have with uncertainty. He presents his fascinating research program on need for closure. His writing is deep, full of humor, and so many great stories of people who sought too much (or at times, too little) certainty. The book further provides a guide for developing self-insights into your own need for closure, so that you make better decisions in life. If there's anything I'm certain about, is that you'll love it * Ayelet Fishbach, author of Get It Done: Surprising Lessons from the Science of Motivation *
