Not Knowing: The Art of Turning Uncertainty into Opportunity by Steven D’Souza and Dianna Renner is an insightful and uplifting book that will give useful tips to readers on being successful and teach them how to live with uncertainty of not knowing, and act accordingly. Change is an opportunity and many a time we hold ourselves back on taking chances on the unknown. The book will encourage and motivate readers to make changes and do self-exploration to make these necessary changes. The authors' words give the freedom to innovate, adapt, and address the complexities of this century with curiosity, empathy, and courage.

The book is a perfect read for us, living in a world of complexity and volatility, and the challenges faced at times are tough. The experiences of the authors of being in the unknown, fighting, resisting, and hating it are tangible and help them reach out to readers effectively. All the stories shared in the book are helpful to make readers understand how to tolerate the unknown, use it to their advantage, and then experience happiness, creativity, and possibility for their entire lives.

The questions at the end of the book will help readers contemplate and reflect, and that will lead to the development of an exploratory mindset. The style of writing is simple and can be comprehended by everyone. It’s an engaging read and will help readers handle their management problems with a new and fresh perspective.
