    This expanded edition includes dozens of practical tips and case studies from readers who have doubled their income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book. Also included are templates for eliminating email and negotiating with bosses and clients, how to apply lifestyle principles in unpredictable economic times, and the latest tools, tricks, and shortcuts for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either.

    Jason says: "My favorite book for encouragement!"
    "Excellent even if you just apply 20% of it."
    Overall

    Just like the Pareto equation, this book will change your life even if you apply 20% of its contents to your life. Some of it you may not be able to do because of your career or goals. Some of it will require a very open mind, but I can reassure you that even at that 20% you will change your life to a better one. Priceless.

  • Spain: A Unique History

    From bloodthirsty conquest to exotic romance, stereotypes of Spain abound. This new volume by distinguished historian Stanley G. Payne draws on his half-century of experience to offer a balanced, broadly chronological survey of Spanish history from the Visigoths to the present. Who were the first “Spaniards”? Is Spain a fully Western country? Was Spanish liberalism a failure? Examining Spain's unique role in the larger history of Western Europe, Payne reinterprets key aspects of the country's history.

    A follow-up to the New York Times best-selling New Rules, The New New Rules delivers a series of hilarious, intelligent rants on everything from same-sex marriage to health care, from Republican agendas to celebrity meltdowns, with all the razor-sharp insight that has made Bill Maher one of the most influential comedic voices shaping the political debate today.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The format is horrible. No need to repeat "New rule" every 30 seconds.


    What was most disappointing about Bill Maher’s story?

    his arrogance. I agree completely with his views, but his cockiness is unbearable.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Don't say "New rule" every 30 seconds.

    "Do not buy the abridged version"
    Overall

    Abridged version is total ripoff, It is missing a lot of the book. Major sections ommited. Someone needs to correct this.

  • The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values

    (451)

    In this explosive new book, Sam Harris tears down the wall between scientific facts and human values, arguing that most people are simply mistaken about the relationship between morality and the rest of human knowledge. Harris urges us to think about morality in terms of human and animal well-being, viewing the experiences of conscious creatures as peaks and valleys on a "moral landscape".

    gerald says: "The book says what many feel, but fear to say"
    "It will soon become a sociology classic"
    Overall

    Brilliantly written, brilliantly delivered, this book will become as relevant as the works of Kant, Descartes or Rousseau some day. Life-changing.
