"Charlan Nemeth personifies minority influence; there is no person on the planet better scientifically qualified to write a book on the dynamics of dissent."--Philip Tetlock, Leonore Annenberg University Professor of Psychology and Management at the University of Pennsylvania and author of Superforecasting
"Charlan Nemeth has written the definitive account of dissent and how it affects thinking. This remarkably insightful, grounded, and accessible treatment could not be more important or more timely."--Karl E. Weick, co-author of Managing the Unexpected
"This book will fundamentally change your mindset in how to manage a crisis and should be required reading for all MBA programs."--Jennifer Johnson, President and COO at Franklin Templeton Investments
"A timely tome on the perils of silence and the value of voice. Charlan Nemeth is one of the world's leading experts on making decisions and influencing others, and she presents a career's worth of evidence on why the views you don't want to consider are often the ones you need to hear most."--Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals, Give and Take, and Option B (with Sheryl Sandberg)
"A beautifully written and important book that deserves to be read by the docile and disobedient alike.

"There are many such useful ideas in Charlan Nemeth's In Defense of Troublemakers, her study of dissent in life and the workplace. But if this one alone takes hold, it could transform millions of meetings, doing away with all those mushy, consensus-driven hours wasted by people too scared of disagreement or power to speak truth to gibberish."--Wall Street Journal
"Nemeth makes her research accessible in a lucid and at times beautifully written form."--Success
"In this enlightening and empowering read, psychologist Charlan Nemeth makes a case for dissent in business, in culture, and in everyday life."--Bustle.com
