The third children's book by bestselling mindset author and two-time Olympian, Matthew Syed will help readers to find their voice, flex their social superpowers, and speak up with kindness and confidence.

What if you could disagree with someone without it turning into the argument of the century? I'm here to tell you that it can be done. If you are the kind of person who…

-Avoids disagreements because you don't want to fall out

-Gets too embarrassed to say that you've changed your mind

-Feels so overwhelmed that you don't know what to think

…then this book is for you.

What do YOU think? will help young readers to discover what is influencing their ideas, from peer pressure to fake news. They'll learn how to form and change opinions, and how to debate their views with empathy. Readers will see how debates and disagreements can give you new ideas, stronger friendships, and help change the world for the better. I know you have loads of incredible thoughts and ideas and the world deserves to hear your voice. I want to know… what do you think?

Practical and positive, this is the book to help children build confidence in their own thoughts, so they can grow into awesome adults who can listen, be listened to, and can agree to disagree while still being friends.
