This book provided me with a useful roadmap of how to elminate my "fixed mindset" tendencies. The author provides helpful examples of growth vs. fixed mindset scenaries and demonstrates how damaging the traditional beliefs of "IQ" and "The Natural" can be to young and old people. Highly recommend!
Typical Richard Dawkins .... Hard core logic, entertaining, and very informative. I just wish I had half of his intellect. He is an amazing scientist and author. 5 Stars.
Very informative. I wish I had more time for books like this. Excellent work.
This was an excellent book which helped me understand how I can greatly improve my personal and professional life. I read "Flow" many years ago and this is the perfect compliment to that book. "Drive" is narriated by the author who does an excellent job of delivering a clear and understandable message of what makes people succeed (or fail). I highly recommend "Drive".
I highly recommend this book. Michael Lewis does a supurb job of telling the story of the financial meltdown and the relevant causes (CDO's and Credit Default Swaps). I read "Liars Poker" 20 years ago and this book is just as informative and entertaining. He is truly a great author and story teller.
Mr. Klien presents an entertaining and educational work with "Politics Lost". I found his perspective much more impressive since he clearly attempted to show problems with the "Left" and the "Right" side of the political spectrum. This is in stark contrast with "Just How Stupid Are We" which only focuses on right wing shenanigans. By his own admission, Mr. Klien is certainly left of center but he is cleary brilliant as well. As a Republican I found his book very informative and I highly recommend it to everyone interested in politics.
I enjoyed the book. The auther made excellent points about the real fault of current political problems .... the American voter (or non-voter). However, I would estimate that 90% of his examples focused on right-wing abuses. There is no doubt that such abuses exist but I feel he could have spent just as much time on left-wing political shenanigins. It was as if Jay Leno only told "Republican Jokes" and never focused on the humorous (and sad) stories related to Blue State Leaders. That said, this is a good book and I recommend it.
