About the book

In When in Doubt, the reader is encouraged to turn self-doubt into a tool that can be used to their advantage to create a better life for themselves. There are no magic tricks in this book, just a simple mindset: “when in doubt, assume you’re wrong”.

The key principle behind everything this book teaches is a mindset observed in almost every great leader and entrepreneur this world has seen. When in Doubt offers a fresh point of view on this ancient principle, allowing people to better relate to it in today’s fast-paced and technology-centred society.

Value-packed and straight-to-the-point with a sprinkle of playfulness, this short 60-page book is a great tool for any goal-oriented person with a desire for improvement.
