  • The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business Is Selling Less of More

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 1 min)

    Story
    (134)

    Our world is being transformed by the Internet and the near limitless choice that it provides to consumers; tomorrow's markets belong to those who can take advantage of this. The Long Tail is really about the economics of abundance, an entirely new model for business that is just starting to show its power as unlimited selection reveals new truths about what consumers want and how they want to get it.

    Jim says: "Good Book, Flawed by Repition"
    "Excellent read"
    Overall

    Excellent book on how the internet fundamentally changes economics. Great insight and solid narration. I had minor quibbles - having worked in the music industry and spent time looking at BigChampagne, I disagree with the implication that the hits have given way to a mass wave of indie bands - but overall it's very insightful. Would purchase again.

  • Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 27 mins)

    Story
    (940)

    In a series of illuminating, often surprising experiments, MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking research, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities.

    Stephen says: "Well researched, well written, & well read"
    "Very Enjoyable"
    Overall

    Very enjoyable pop psychology, with special interest to anybody who sets the price of good or services. Narrator is enjoyable to listen to and the studies performed were very intriguing. Would buy again.
