Product description


Upstream contains research and storytelling that informs, engages and, above all, entertains. If you want to stop firefighting problems and prevent them from happening in the first place, then you should read what Dan Heath has to say. Charles Duhigg, author of bestsellers The Power of Habit and Smarter, Faster, Better

Dan Heath has written the ultimate primer on the power of prevention, a work that deserves a prominent place on every leader's bookshelf. Packed with vivid stories and practical examples, Upstream is the rare book that can both revitalize your business and make our world a better place. ― Daniel H. Pink, No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of When, Drive, and To Sell Is Human

Considers our chronic failure to address our problems before they hit us. ― Financial Times

In a style reminiscent of Malcolm Gladwell and the Freakonomics team, Heath explores fascinating case studies from the business world and beyond... Upstream just might change the way you think about problem-solving. ― Apple Books

An elegant manifesto... With the frenetic pace of modern life, Heath observes, it's easy to become accustomed to putting out fires instead of looking for the spark that's igniting them... This is a pragmatic guide for those seeking big changes on either an individual or organizational level. ― Publishers Weekly
