About the book
If you’ve felt alienated and alone in recent years, you’re in good company. Whether it’s a rift in your family, polarization at your workplace or just a sense that society isn’t as connected as it once was, many of us feel painful chasms in our connections. Internationally-recognized curiosity expert and bridge builder Scott Shigeoka knows that there’s only one cure: Deep Curiosity.
Rooted in a desire to understand, rather than to know, a practice of Deep Curiosity can help us leverage something we think of as an intellectual force or personality trait into a heart-centered daily practice to transform our well-being and our lives.
“Energizing, creative, and exciting” (Gretchen Rubin), Seek is a revolutionary playbook to heal division, loneliness, estrangement, hatred, and our most urgent societal challenges.
Maximize your potential for connection, healing, and personal growth with this “timely bridge for our divided world.” (Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Hidden Potential)
“We’ve been hiding from each other for far too long. Seek offers us an empathic, practical, and heartfelt road map forward.” – Seth Godin, Author of The Song of Significance and Tribes
