  • “I’ll admit it: Thanks for the Feedback made me unconformable. And that’s one reason I liked it so much. With keen insight and lots of practical takeaways, Stone and Heen reveal why getting feedback is so hard—and then how we can do better. If you relish receiving criticism at work and adore it in your personal life, then you may be the one person on earth who can safely skip this book.”

    Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of Drive

  • “Accepting feedback at work is important, but in families, it’s vital. This simple, elegant book teaches us how.”

    Bruce Feiler, New York Times bestselling author of Abraham

  • “We all know the experience: Someone, perhaps your boss, or even worse, not your boss, offers feedback that, however well-intentioned, blunts the tranquility of your day. Negotiating experts Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen specialize in dealing with emotionally draining interplays. In fact, their book Difficult Conversations has helped thousands of men and women improve their workplace and nonworkplace experiences. Thanks for the Feedback explains why learning to respond to feedback productively not only enhances your mood, it also improves your performance. Valuable lessons we can all use.”

    Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review

  • "Thanks for the Feedback is an extraordinarily useful book. It’s full of helpful techniques that can be put to use by anyone seeking to manage an organization, lead a team, engage a business partner, or navigate a relationship….Stone and Heen have done a remarkable job of showing individuals and organizations how to leverage the enormous value of feedback, one of the most powerful instruments available for human learning.”

    Strategy+Business magazine

  • “With a culture increasingly focused on the individual and the self, this book on developing the ability to accept and utilize the input of others constructively deserves a wide readership.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Heen and Stone narrate their book with the clarity and freshness of scholars who are still excited about teaching but never let their love of ideas predominate over their desire to help. Feedback is complex: Whether intended or not, it’s received as a multilayered message that provides more than judgment or evaluation—it’s input not just about the receiver’s job or performance but inevitably speaks to a person’s desire for appreciation, autonomy, acceptance, and personal identity. With its many tips for fine-tuning given feedback and suggestions for processing received feedback, this guide will inspire listeners to seek and embrace feedback as a necessary part of growing and improving everything they do.”
