'Heffernan is ... a deft storyteller ... Bad "smart thinking" books offer 2x2 matrices and jargon; good ones offer theory and evidence. Heffernan steps outside the caregory entirely. She wants us to engage with the particularities of people, places and the problems they faced - to empathise with them, reflect on our own lives and our own careers, and to draw our own conclusions. Uncharted is ... wise and appealingly human.' -- Tim Harford * Financial Times *
