    Few companies in history have ever been as successful and as admired as Google, the company that has transformed the Internet and become an indispensable part of our lives. How has Google done it? Veteran technology reporter Steven Levy was granted unprecedented access to the company, and in this revelatory book he takes listeners inside Google headquarters - the Googleplex - to explain how Google works.

    Jeff says: "Great for the stories."
    "What Google really does will blow your mind"

    Story

    This is a fascinating and surprising story. You get to learn what Google is really all about and how it makes a buck. As a casual user of "search" you just wouldn't have clue what game they're playing in the background to rack up billions in revenue and profit. I took every chance I could to get my head phones on so I could find out what amazing feat was next. I could hardly believe how ambitious this company's founders are. Its really quite remarkable and inspiring to hear their story and it leaves you wondering; where on earth could this company go from here!

    At the heart of John C. Maxwell's brilliant and inspiring program is a simple premise: To do well in life, we must first think well. But can we actually learn new mental habits? Thinking for a Change answers that with a resounding "yes" - and shows that your thinking can indeed change your life.

    Story

    Maxwell is a well practiced story teller. He uses good examples and has designed a solid framework for this book. All of the main points are told clearly. It makes sense. You get an insight into how to think like you know you should and plenty of ideas to take away and practice with. Well worth a listen.

    Story
    (60)

    "Years ago, I wrote about a retail store in the Palo Alto environs—a good one, which had a box of two-cent candies at the checkout. I subsequently remember that 'little' parting gesture of the two-cent candy as a symbol of all that is Excellent at that store. Dozens of people who have attended seminars of mine have come up to remind me, sometimes 15 or 20 years later, of “the two-cent candy story,” and to tell me how it had a sizable impact on how they did business."

    Alexander says: "Really hard to listen"
    "Jam packed and energetic"
    Overall

    A huge amount of info is crammed into this energetically presented audio book. Every sentence packs a punch. Incredible depth and insight. My only complaint would be that the use of the words "quote, unquote" gets a bit irritating after a while. Highly recommended overall.

    In his groundbreaking book Predictably Irrational, social scientist Dan Ariely revealed the multiple biases that lead us into making unwise decisions. Now, in The Upside of Irrationality, he exposes the surprising negative and positive effects irrationality can have on our lives. Focusing on our behaviors at work and in relationships, he offers new insights and eye-opening truths about what really motivates us on the job.

    Rand says: "Great Title!!!"
    "Interesting"
    Overall

    The writer has a very deep understanding of human nature and makes several interesting insights. Quite amusing at times. Although some parts a bit drawn out and repetitive.
