This is a great book. It's very up to date with citation of many of modern scientific studies. Usually a book like this is very up and down. Some exciting research mixed with some very boring downside. But this managed to keep me on my toes. I am actually looking forward to listening this again after listening to a few other books about neurology and psychology, hopefully gaining a better understanding of the whole picture. I loved how they brought up the most successful people being the ones who did not give up. It's really all a numbers game, this concept went beautifully with
I listened to the concluding chapter a few times because it sums up the book really well.
I can't suggest this enough.
The concepts were easy to follow. They were just technical enough that they didn't feel completely for the layman.
I was a huge fan of this reader. I haven't listened to any of his previous work, but I would be more than happy to hear him read other books, he is better than most people who read in scientific fields.
I did want to listen to it all at once, but it's not a small book. I listened while I was driving mostly. But I enjoyed it so much that I bought the actual book for when I was not driving.
Amazing book. It was strange hearing from the man who's work is so quoted in other peoples work. But it was amazingly freeing. Just to demonstrate how pervasive his work really is: I have yet to listen to a book that deals with psychology of decisions/economics/general psychological motivations that have not quoted his work. He was also quoted in a book on Mathematics by Leonard Mlodinow and a book on Neurological Research by Michael Gazzaniga. And they aren't even dealing directly with Psychology or Economics.
