Product Details


“Monica Parker has taken an undervalued emotion — and demonstrated its capacity to transform our lives. The Power of Wonder delivers on its title by showing how wonder can spark creativity, deepen humility, and boost performance. This book is precisely what we need to cultivate curiosity, empathy, and open-mindedness in our world.”
—Daniel H. Pink, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Power of Regret, When, and Drive

—Scott Barry Kaufman, PhD, author of Choose Growth and Transcend
“Few emotions offer as much potency and meaning as our sense of wonder. Monica offers a whirlwind of science and stories about wonder and its cousins—curiosity, openness, absorption, and awe. An enthralling read.”
—Dr. Todd B. Kashdan, PhD, author of The Art of Insubordination and professor of psychology at George Mason University.

As a CEO, I found Monica Parker’s The Power of Wonder filled with practical takeaways. As an environmentalist and wonderseeker, I felt even more connected to the wonders of our world. An essential read for all who love the earth.
—Azzedine Downes, president and CEO of International Fund for Animal Welfare
