    Story
    (2066)

    The guru to the gurus at last shares his knowledge with the rest of us. Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman's seminal studies in behavioral psychology, behavioral economics, and happiness studies have influenced numerous other authors, including Steven Pinker and Malcolm Gladwell. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman at last offers his own, first book for the general public. It is a lucid and enlightening summary of his life's work. It will change the way you think about thinking. Two systems drive the way we think and make choices, Kahneman explains....

    Story

    Daniel Kahneman explains many of the decisions we make and why we make them. He explains intuition in a way that is clearly understandable, and very reasonable. He does tend to get very technical, and sometimes it gets very slow between the final conclusion, but it is worth bearing through to fully comprehend the final result.

    This book is worth reading/listening to, because the information conveyed is worth learning.

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

  • Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

    Story
    (3629)

    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

    Teddy says: "Thought provoking and Uplifting.... A++++++++!!!!!"
    "Really great information about personalities."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Quiet the most enjoyable?

    The thoughtful and insightful explanations of introverts and extroverts, and the examples of each given.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Quiet?

    The realization that introverts are not inferior as our culture would have us believe.


    What does Kathe Mazur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She remarkably brings the author to life to me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I want to learn more along these lines since listening to this book.

    Her name is Clara Rinker, a southern woman, trim, pleasant, attractive, and the best hit woman in the business. She isn't showy; she just goes quietly about her business, collects her money, and goes home.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I recommend that the story itself is really interesting.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Being able to hear both sides was really cool.


    What three words best describe Eric Conger’s performance?

    Articulate, Tone, and Interesting.


    Could you see Certain Prey being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Already did.


    Any additional comments?

    Technical quality needs improvement, and removing the book from the device, and downloading the items from the wishlist sucked.
