This book provides a close up look at a range of studies focused on the bottom billion. In it, you'll learn a bit about randomized control testing (RCT) and its strength as a research tool. Moreover, you'll get a glimpse into what various researchers have learned about the causes and effects surrounding hunger, disease prevention, economic progress, as well as how the poorest parents make family planning decisions.
Measured survey of the journey of highs and lows for the countries in and around Europe. Woven together, Mr. Friedman lays out what he thinks all of this portends.
Here's the condensed formula I learned from the book.: be there, be serious, think long term.
Rich story about how these 33 men got trapped, lived underground and were rescued. Fascinating details about what kind of "help" arrived from up above during the ordeal.
Terrific overview of how technology available today, coupled with a mindset shift in clinician thinking, can go a long way towards improving health care for all.
Sarah Thornton did a good job here of teaching us about the art world. With her "close up" accounts of real life events, she helped me better understand the goals and motivations of the myriad players in the value chain.
Very soothing one way conversation with the author about her lifelong journey tidying up....and what you can learn from it. Good pre-therapy before cleaning out your house of lifetime possessions. A little corny when she starts thanking her possessions for the joy they bring to her life. Nonetheless, mildly entertaining.
Delightful listen of some new and unexpected factoids about human behavior. Super narration too.
This story was an aspirational account of where a leading tech company wants to take the world.....to a place of total transparency. Great performance by the narration team.
Interesting story about the aircraft business in general and the development of the 747 in particular. Now I understand why the model 747 has been around so long, and the reasons for its many configurations. I'm just an infrequent flier, but still enjoyed the listen.
This is a great introduction for anybody who wants to start from scratch with Shakespeare. The courses are geared towards an assumption that the reader knows very little on the subject, which ultimately makes for a clear presentation.
The professor focuses on a handful of Shakespeare's plays, going over the stories and then illustrating critical analysis tools, and putting them to work. This is the best part-- you first learn how he is going to analyze the play, then observe that very analysis at work. The idea is that you can then delve into these plays on your own with these collected analysis tools.
