The Power of Regret

The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us ForwardThe Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward 
by Daniel H. Pink
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read Pink's book When a few years ago and really liked it so when I heard about this book I jumped right in. Pink conducted the World Regret Survey (which is still going on) and used the stories he collected there as a data set to analyze the role of regret in our lives. He identified correlations among the various regrets and addresses each type as well as talking about the implications of regret more generally. 
This was a thought-provoking book and Pink is an excellent writer. Mixing in people's personal stories with the social-science make this a very readable book.

Counts toward the Nonfiction Reader Challenge as a 2022 book.
