  • 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.

    Overall

    This is one of my favorite books I've ever listened to from audible. It has great science, interesting studies, AND practical suggestions for applying it to real life. I've already recommended this book to many people and listened to it three times. I am seriously happier after applying just a few of its most simple suggestions. Love it! Thanks Shawn!

    Forced out of the Los Angeles Times amid the latest budget cuts, newspaperman Jack McEvoy decides to go out with a bang, using his final days at the paper to write the definitive murder story of his career. He focuses on Alonzo Winslow, a 16-year-old drug dealer in jail after confessing to a brutal murder. But as he delves into the story, Jack realizes that Winslow's so-called confession is bogus. The kid might actually be innocent.

    Like so many women in today's society, Valerie Frankel's world was dictated by her weight, from starvation and binge eating to her self-loathing and total preoccupation with her weight. Not wanting to pass this legacy on to her own daughters, Valerie set out to cleanse herself of these painful and damaging cycles.

    At first I thought this was a diet book, but it is not. It is a memoir of a woman's struggle with dieting and her coming to peace with herself and losing the weight. I did enjoy it and will probably listen to it again.

  • What I Talk about When I Talk about Running: A Memoir

    From the best-selling author of Kafka on the Shore comes this rich and revelatory memoir about writing and running and the integral impact both have made on his life. Equal parts training log, travelogue, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers Murakami's four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon. Settings range from Tokyo, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston, among young women who outpace him.

    Rick says: "It is what it says it is"
    "Good read if you're a runner"
    Overall

    If you like this author or are a runner, you'll enjoy this book. I run daily and enjoyed listening to it while I run. It's a memoir more than anything, but it was interesting.
