    No skill is more important in today's world than being able to think about, understand, and act on information in an effective and responsible way. What's more, at no point in human history have we had access to so much information, with such relative ease, as we do in the 21st century. But because misinformation out there has increased as well, critical thinking is more important than ever. These 24 rewarding lectures equip you with the knowledge and techniques you need to become a savvier, sharper critical thinker in your professional and personal life.

    Story

    I guess it was good, but it sure was drawn out and some examples were repeated. Most stuff is obvious, but it DOES make you think about the process of critical thinking ... and I will apply it.

    Story

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Story

    I heard Steve Jobs was a visionary and a jerk. I wasn't going to read the book, but glad I did. Ever wonder how it started, how steve got kicked out of apple, how he came back, the relationship of Disney/pixar/steve jobs, why apple is such a closed system? Read the book, all those questions are answered and more. I don't own any apple products and may never because of the closed-system.
