    Elegant, enigmatic Jay Gatsby yearns for his old love, the beautiful Daisy. But she is married to the insensitive if hugely successful Tom Buchanan, who won’t let her go despite having a mistress himself. In their wealthy haven, these beguiling lives are brought together by the innocent and entranced narrator, Nick – until their decadent deceits spill into violence and tragedy. Part morality tale, part fairy tale, The Great Gatsby is the consummate novel of the Jazz Age. Its tenderness and poetry make it one of the great works of the 20th century.

    Where does The Great Gatsby rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high, but I do wish I would have read the paper version. I don't think the imagery jumps out as much if you aren't reading it for yourself. But I wanted to read it before the movie came out and I am so glad I did!

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    What did you love best about Made to Stick?

    Easy to listen to. Well written. New and exciting concepts. Highly recommend it. I might actually read it again (which I never do) just to catch things I might have missed.

    Story
    (1264)

    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"

    Any additional comments?

    This has been one of my favorite reads so far. It is obvious that he is very well studied, driven to the subject by his own tragic life experience. I read (listened) to this a while back, and I find myself referencing it on almost a weekly basis since I read it. Amazing book.

  • The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

    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.

    If you could sum up The Power of Habit in three words, what would they be?

    Trigger. Action. Reward. (duh)


    What did you like best about this story?

    Duhigg did a great job of putting the obvious in perspective. Everything seemed breakthrough as he said it, then so obvious after I thought about it. He simplified a very complicated subject and I couldn't wait to get back on the road to listen to more.

    Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook COO, ranked eighth on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business - has become one of America's most galvanizing leaders, and an icon for millions of women juggling work and family. In Lean In, she urges women to take risks and seek new challenges, to find work that they love, and to remain passionately engaged with it at the highest levels throughout their lives.

    Where does Lean In rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high- I felt like some of it was pretty repetitive, but it kept me interested until the end. It's not super heavy on the feminist side, which I appreciated. She is more focused on balancing the playing field in life. I think I actually identified most with how she suggested that people handle their home life. To avoid gender norms in the home, and have a 50/50 chore set up no matter what the working situation is for either parent.
