    The most eagerly awaited presidential biography in years, Theodore Rex tells the story of President Theodore Roosevelt in real time, reflecting the world as "TR" saw it. Full of cinematic detail, Theodore Rex moves with the exhilarating pace of a novel, yet it rides on a granite base of scholarship.

    If you could sum up Theodore Rex in three words, what would they be?

    Nice follow up.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The highly anticipated sequel to The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book, but suggest reading The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt first.

  • The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work

    Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.

    Would you listen to The Happiness Advantage again? Why?

    Shawn Achor reads his work exceptionally well. If you're on the fence about buying this book, I recommend watching Shawn Achor's TED Talk for an introduction to the author and his work. He gives practical steps to apply the best insights from the field of positive psychology. No self aggrandizement, just helpful tips and insights with a few interesting stories.
