Description

“Most people recognize the value of curiosity, but few know how to unleash it. Seek will help you close the gap between awareness and action. Scott Shigeoka’s thirst for understanding and connection is contagious, and his book is a timely bridge for our divided world.” ―Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and Hidden Potential, and host of the TED podcast Re:Thinking

Open your mind, heal your relationships, and connect across divides with this "energizing, creative, and exciting" (Gretchen Rubin) approach to deep curiosity from an internationally-recognized curiosity expert—perfect for readers of Atlas of the Heart and Talking to Strangers.

Did you know that curiosity is your superpower? It’s no secret that division, loneliness, and polarization are on the rise—to catastrophic impact on our personal lives. While we often think of curiosity as a personality trait, internationally-recognized curiosity expert Scott Shigeoka knows that it’s actually the most potent tool we have to bridge our differences and heal relationships: From political blow-ups to age divides at work; religious differences to languishing friendships; gun rights to gender rights.

In Seek, Shigeoka blends cutting edge research on curiosity with wisdom from years of grassroots community work and the stories of people living at the threshold of deep curiosity—ancient wayfinders in the Pacific Ocean, Catholic nuns and Millennial seekers sharing a convent, a wildland firefighter in Montana, and more—as he takes readers on a journey to understand the power of deep curiosity.

With the support of Shigoeka’s four-phase DIVE model, readers will learn to...
  • Detach — Let go of their ABCs (assumptions, biases, certainty),
  • Intend — Prepare their mindset and setting,
  • Value — See the dignity of every person, including themselves,
  • Embrace — Welcome the hard times in their life,
...As they unlock the capacity for connection, healing, and personal growth.

With electric vulnerability, thoughtful storytelling, and actionable tools, Seek calls each of us to stop turning away from what is unfamiliar, uncomfortable or unknown and, instead, embrace our power to seek.

"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
