The Refractive Thinker

Author Spotlight!

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”  –Ralph Waldo Emerson

As a result of our efforts, The Refractive Thinker® series remains as an influencing series for the doctoral scholar. We have won 20 awards, we have 4#1 Amazon Best Sellers, and there are now 19 books in the series, with Vol XVIII: Project Management to be publishing April 2020.

Goals for 2020

I would like to see each volume of The Refractive Thinker® as a doctoral course requirement and as a recommendation for further reading for universities around the globe.  Please help us get the word out.  With textbooks increasing in price every year, The Refractive Thinker® offers 3 versions—print ($18.95), digital ($9.99), and an individual eChapter ($3.99) —a bargain–considering the amazing doctoral research contained within the pages of each volume.
