    Intuition is not some magical property that arises unbidden from the depths of our mind. It is a product of long hours and intelligent design, of meaningful work environments, and particular rules and principles. This audiobook shows us how we can hone our instinctive ability to know in an instant, helping us to bring out the best in our thinking and become better decision-makers in our homes, offices, and in everyday life.

    Story

    I loved how Gladwell explains how much information we can gather in a blink of an eye. He goes on to show his findings through research and stories.

    I feel wiser and love re-quoting the stories to other people.

    Great audio - and well read.

    As each new generation of entrepreneurs emerges, there is a renewed interest in how venture capital deals come together. Yet there really is no definitive guide to venture capital deals. Nobody understands this better than authors Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson. For more than seventeen years, they've been involved in hundreds of venture capital financings, and now, with Venture Deals, they share their experiences in this field with you.

    Story

    The book is very helpful, however you may need to take notes as there is much detail to take in. I would have purchased the hard copy in hindsight.

    You will need to constantly stop and start the audio to take in the information.

    Please note I had a relatively low amount of knowledge in VC before starting this book.

    Most of us have no idea what's really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know - such as the brain's need for physical activity to work at its best. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget - and so important to repeat new information? Is it true that men and women have different brains?

    Story

    The book is good and I have taken a few great points out of the book. I love his explanation around exercise, stress and the effects on brain function.

    Some excellent content however gets technical to a point if you have little idea about brain terminology, you get bored and miss exactly what he is saying.

    The first half of the book is worth listening to.

    Napoleon Hill, the forefather of the modern personal development movement and author of the motivational classic, Think and Grow Rich, has inspired millions with his words and thoughts on discovering success and abundance within oneself. It is a message that continues to resonate, but few have ever had the opportunity to hear the “success” lecture by the man himself. Now you can.

    I love this book, as I would like to listen to Think and Grow Rich every 6 months however it is relativley long. This is an excellent refresher to remind you what to do.

    I wouldn't hesitate getting this even if you have not read his masterpiece.

    Enjoy!

    There used to be two teams in every workplace: management and labor. Now there’s a third team, the linchpins. These people invent, lead (regardless of title), connect others, make things happen, and create order out of chaos. They figure out what to do when there’s no rule book. They delight and challenge their customers and peers. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, and turn each day into a kind of art.

    Story

    This is an excellent book. I have read many other reviews stating that the book does not tell you how to be a 'linchpin' - however, that is the point of the book. It explains clearly why and what a linchpin is - it is up to the reader to use their creative mind to interpret what it means to them. Being told how to be a 'linchpin' defeats exactly what the point of the book is - self creativity.

    The book is inspiring and makes me feel a whole lot better about what can be achieved. I have a corporate job with limited room for creativity within the role; however after reading this book, I now see how I can be creative outside my role and become indispensable within this organisation or the next.

    At times it can be detailed, which can be challenging to stay focused – it would have been made easier should the story flow a little easier. However don’t let this deter you from buying this book.

    Enjoy!
