“In his new book, Ralph Jacobson explains that your toughest problem might not be a problem at all, but rather it’s a paradox. … A paradox is a situation that has at least two competing sides, and may appear as a contradiction. It has two polarities that can be both right and wrong at the same time. … Jacobson’s breakthrough book gives us tools to achieve higher levels of success, both professionally and personally as we find ways to balance the competing sides of our toughest issues.”
