    A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on. For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?

    Amazon Customer says: "Different"
    "One of the best books I have read on change"
    Overall

    One of the best books I have read on change. Their theory is that willpower for change is overrated. Then they go through a systematic way to approach change which is very uplifting. The power of this book comes from the way they made this theory so easy to understand and apply. Love that the second half of the book is detailed examples. I have found all Kerry Patterson’s books to be excellent.

  • The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 35 mins)

    Story

    Reporter Sam Kean reveals the periodic table as it’s never been seen before. Not only is it one of man's crowning scientific achievements, it's also a treasure trove of stories of passion, adventure, betrayal, and obsession. The infectious tales and astounding details in The Disappearing Spoon follow carbon, neon, silicon, and gold as they play out their parts in human history, finance, mythology, war, the arts, poison, and the lives of the (frequently) mad scientists who discovered them.

    Ethan M. says: "Excellent, if unfocused"
    "Not my kind of book"
    Overall

    Liked the idea of the book but too much chemistry for my liking. Also, the history he covered did not grab my attention. Thus, I did not finish the book.
