Dan Heath      

Bestselling Author; Senior Fellow at Duke University’s CASE Center; Co-Founder, Thinkwell

Dan Heath is a Senior Fellow at Duke University’s CASE center, which supports social entrepreneurs. Heath is the co-author, along with his brother Chip, of four books: Decisive, Switch, Made to Stick, and their latest, The Power of Moments. All four are New York Times bestsellers, and all four have earned Amazon ratings of at least 4.6 out of 5.0 (across 2,600 reviews). The Heath Brothers’ books have been translated into over 30 languages.

Previously, Heath worked as a researcher and case writer for Harvard Business School. In 1997, Heath co-founded an innovative publishing company called Thinkwell, which continues to produce a radically reinvented line of college textbooks.

In 2018, Heath began hosting a podcast about behavioral economics called Choiceology.

Heath has an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA from the Plan II Honors Program from the University of Texas at Austin. One proud geeky moment for Heath was his victory in the 2005 New Yorker Cartoon Caption Contest, beating out 13,000 other entrants. He lives in Durham, NC.
