For a long time I've wondered why Mississippi's average income is the lowest in the country, way lower than the New England and West Coast states. Mississippi isn't alone. The other Southern states are only slightly better. Well, this book goes a long way to explaining why. The answer is Southern culture.
This is a black libertarian's explanation of black underachievement and a strong argument for high academic standards and expectations. Hard work doesn't hurt either.
A sometimes interesting exploration of privacy, or the lack thereof, in the digital age and possible solutions to the problems created and acknowledgment of some benefits received.
Basically, my take away is that the future will either be intuitively convenient or "1984" redux. But we still have a lot of control over what we chose to share with the world and we should think carefully before we share.
I've owned many different breeds of large dogs, and I thought I knew about training them, but this book was an eye opener on the abilities of dogs and how they're trained to go to war. Great read and I learned a lot.
Daniker makes a good case for ET's having visited us.... don't know what I think.... read it and decide for yourself.
Now I understand why my grandfather was so traumatized by his service in WWI. The politicians, diplomats and generals were all so incredibly incompetent, ego driven and short sighted. This is a slow and steady recounting of how Europe got into the WWI, how the war was waged, how it ended and how all of it made WWII inevitable.
An interesting history of the American dairy farmer in Wisconsin. The evolution from hardscrabble farmer with a few dozen cows, to the large scale farm with a few dozen farmhands and machines, to the modern day, college educated farmer with a business model from one extreme to the other. The one over riding theme is the love of the land and the animals.
The novice mutual fund investor will certainly benefit from listening to this book. Knowledge is power is a basic truth that will never go out of style.
I've been a stock trader for a number of years and I found a lot of basic truths, that even experienced traders, should be reminded of from time to time. At about an hour in length, this is a very efficient way to remind oneself.
This is a valuable introduction to retirement planning, something we all have to consider as soon as we start working, to assure we aren't poverty stricken when we can least afford to be vulnerable.
While the 21 truths are valid, this is basically one, thankfully short, infomercial to buy his $1,000 course at a discount. wow.
This is the best guide to being an entrepreneur that I've ever read. Loaded with great tales of mistakes made and always in the context of the over-riding vision of serving the customer.... and remembering that you are doing whatever in order to be happy. Great, short book.
