So grateful to @donandrewmoore for supporting #QUIT and blurbing it. Don was crucial in helping me with the section of the book on over optimism and how that contributes to our bias against quitting. He is my go to guy on all things overconfidence😊
I first talked to @Donandrewmoore about quitting back in Jan of 2021 as I was working on the proposal for #QUIT. What day in January?? January 6th!
As we were zooming, I started getting a barrage of texts about what was happening at the Capitol. I realized I had not heard a word of the last few minutes of anything
@donandrewmoore had said so suggested that perhaps we should both go watch the news & reconvene at a later date.

So grateful to @RyanHoliday for blurbing #QUIT. Not sure what I can say about him that won’t take a VERY long thread since he might be the most productive human I know! But, I'll try 👇🏻
.@RyanHoliday has a new book coming out THIS TUESDAY! Discipline is Destiny is excellent (I was lucky enough to read an advance copy). Buy it now!…
Ryan is best known for his books on #stoicism. His first book I read was The Obstacle is the Way on how to turn adversity into advantage. It's helped me thru some hard times. It is a breezy read on stoic philosophy that doesn’t sacrifice depth.…

So grateful to @DavidEpstein for blurbing #QUIT. David didn't just say some nice things to put on the back cover, he also was right there with me when I was just starting the explore the ideas that would become the book.
He was a connector and thought partner and I know this book would be worse, had I not had his support. Thank you @davidepstein.
.@DavidEpstein is a brilliant writer & journalist. His book, RANGE, is a #1 @NYTimes bestseller. It's an engaging & thought-provoking exploration of the counterintuitive idea that being a generalist (not specialist) will = more creativity and success.…

I am so grateful to @Katy_Milkman for blurbing QUIT. Katy supported me through the process, reading early drafts & offering invaluable suggestions about how to make the book better. She also introduced me to other folks who were crucial in helping me to navigate the topic.
Katy is best known for her significant work on behavior change as a professor @Wharton. Her bestseller, How to Change, came out last year & received rave reviews. The book is truly a must-read for anyone looking to kick start a change in their life.…
Katy is also the host of the wonderful podcast, #Choiceology. Super fun listen exploring “the lessons of behavioral economics, exposing the psychological traps that lead to expensive mistakes.” You should really add this to your regular queue!

So grateful to @PTetlock for blurbing my new book, Quit: The Power of Knowing When to Walk Away. Phil is a giant in the field of forecasting and human judgment and decision making. He is also a fantastic follow on twitter!
Phil is most famous for his work on forecasting with Barb Mellers and many other fantastic collaborators. You can read about that work in his New York Times best seller, Superforecasting, The Art and Science of Prediction, coauthored with @dgardner.…
Phil also published Expert Political Judgment: How Good is It? How Can We know? It is an excellent read about the good, the bad, and the ugly of punditry and political prediction. Highly recommend both of these books.…
