Reviews

"Upstream draws on examples from across the spectrum, from sport to business. But Heath is clever enough to focus on significant societal issues, such as sexual harassment, climate change, and school shootings, which gives the book a substantial feel that some more superficial problem-solving manuals lack." --Financial Times, Best Book of the Month
"Heath presents a convincing argument for shifting resources 'upstream' and focusing on prevention rather than cure." --Booklist
"
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, New York Times bestselling author of The Power of Habit and Smarter Faster Better
"[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
