  • The Tell-Tale Brain: A Neuroscientist's Quest for What Makes Us Human

    V. S. Ramachandran is at the forefront of his field - so much so that Richard Dawkins dubbed him the "Marco Polo of neuroscience". Now, in a major new work, Ramachandran sets his sights on the mystery of human uniqueness. Taking us to the frontiers of neurology, he reveals what baffling and extreme case studies can teach us about normal brain function and how it evolved.

  • Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success

    Story
    (459)

    In 1938, just after publication of his all-time best-seller Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill revealed that he had broken the Devil’s Code, forcing him to confess his secrets. The resulting manuscript - Outwitting the Devil - proved so controversial, it was hidden for more than 70 years. Now, Sharon Lechter brings us this important book, annotating and editing it for a contemporary audience. Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Hill digs deep to identify the greatest obstacles we face in reaching our personal goals....

    Story

    I almost returned this book after listening to the first few minutes. There was quite a bit of talk about religion and an imaginary talk with the Devil, plus my bad memory of "Think and Grow Rich" where Mr. Hill says that he won't tell the secret. Let me say that the conversation with the Devil gives me a completely different opinion of Mr. Hill. The major point is to have a major definite purpose and that will lead to health, happiness and prosperity. It is lack of a major definite purpose that causes failure in these areas.

  • God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales

    From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller comes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are The Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheist’s experience in the world.

    Story

    If you like free flowing talks about sex, libertarianism, magic and atheism spattered with no lack of obscenities, then this just might be the book for you.

    If you are looking to find insights about atheism, what it means and if it's right for you, then you might want to look elsewhere.

    Richard Dawkins' brilliant reformulation of the theory of natural selection has the rare distinction of having provoked as much excitement and interest outside the scientific community as within it. His theories have helped change the whole nature of the study of social biology, and have forced thousands to rethink their beliefs about life.

    If you could sum up The Selfish Gene in three words, what would they be?

    I have several people that recommended reading this book. I am glad I listened to it. Great book.

    Built To Last, the defining management study of the 90s, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the very beginning. But what about companies that are not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Good to Great to be better than the print version?

    Jim Collins presents an interesting analysis of what he thinks is necessary to be a great company.
