Praise for Reframe:
“An original and vital contribution to understanding politics” – Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist
“This is one of those books that’s exciting if you agree with it, but even more exciting if you don’t. Eric Knight is provoking us to consider not just what we think, but how we think.” – Waleed Aly
“Eric Knight asks us to apply a different lens when looking at some of our trickiest problems. And by doing so we do indeed find new solutions. Great insight and intriguing reading.” – Hans-Paul Bürkner, President and CEO, Boston Consulting Group
“The extraordinary breadth and depth of Knight’s knowledge, and the scale of his insights, place Reframe in the rarefied company of books like Blink, The Black Swan and Freakonomics.” – Lev Grossman, senior writer, Time Magazine
“Not only is it well written and entertaining, but Reframe turns conventional thinking on its head and leaves one asking, what if?” – David Gonski AC
“Reframe is written in a positive, fresh voice that is accessible to a wide audience, including those new to politics.” – Bookseller+Publisher
“A lucid, wide-ranging argument for counter-intuitive thinking.” – Sun Herald
‘Knight is an accomplished writer, not just logical and lucid but also consistently interesting and challenging,’ – the Age
