What’s the best book you’ve read in 2022 so far? We’d love it if you could share a nugget of wisdom from that book in the thread below!

My favorite nonfiction I’ve read so far in 2022 is The Voltage Effect by John List. It’s a really fascinating look across the public and private sector about what ideas work at large scale vs. what ones fail. I love the focus on behavioral economics/psychology to understand the ripple effects that scale, or don’t scale, from small to large.

My favorite nugget from the book is that company culture, just like products or policies, can suffer from the same non-scalable factors! And then you get unexpected toxic company cultures.

Love it! Added it to my reading list. Thanks for sharing Julia :star_struck:

It’s important to be mindful of what ‘scaling’ truly means and understand the scientific attributes that come with it.
