About the original book:
Drawing from the stories of dozens of upstream thinkers who have achieved remarkable success in solving such problems as customer churn and domestic violence, Heath demonstrates how anyone can confront seemingly insoluble problems and design interventions that prevent them from occurring in the first place. Heath, who is a senior fellow at Duke University, builds on the latest in psychology and systems thinking to propose, in easily digestible prose, how ordinary people can achieve the change in mindset that creates extraordinary change. Upstream ought to be required reading for parents, teachers, doctors, entrepreneurs, government officials, and problem solvers of all kinds.
