This Is Not Your Average Book Club

How can you identify your blindspots,

and move beyond them for better relationships?

The Blindspots Between Us has the answer, and author Gleb Tsipursky has partnered with hiitide to offer a Virtual Book Club for these important lessons.

In an era ever more divided by tribalism, bias, and political acrimony, Dr. Gleb’s excellent and insightful The Blindspots Between Us, provides timely guidelines for managing our cognitive biases, assumptions and hidden blindspots to improve our relationships with romantic partners, family, friends and coworkers. It’s uniquely helpful and is arriving at a perfect time to make a difference in healing our society – and ourselves.

The research and methods that you’ll learn in this bookclub are grounded in evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which has been proven effective at addressing thought patterns that don’t help us.

During this 4-week Virtual Book Club, you’ll integrate the tools and techniques from The Blindspots Between Us in real time through daily micro-lessons and live author Q&A’s.

When what you think you know gets in the way – this eye-opening guide offers a clear path to forging stronger, healthier, and more meaningful relationships. 

We all want positive, productive, and genuine relationships- whether it’s with our family, friends, peers, coworkers, or romantic partners. And yet, time and time again, we all seem to make the same thinking errors that threaten or sabotage these relationships. These errors are called cognitive bias, and they happen when our brain attempts to simplify information by making assumptions. 

Grounded in evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), The Blind Spots Between Us reveals the most common “hidden” cognitive biases that blind us to the truth, and which lead to the misunderstandings that damage our relationships. 

With this guide, you’ll learn key skills to help you debias – to stop, pause, and objectively observe situations before jumping to conclusions about other’ motives. You’ll learn to consider other people’s points of view and past experiences before rushing to judgment and potentially undermining your relationships.

Being human is hard. None of us are perfect, and we all have our blindspots that can get in the way of building the relationships we really and truly want, deep down. This much needed book with help you identify your own blindspots, and move beyond them for better relationships – and a better world.
