Detailed and far ranging discussion of what it takes to be the best you can be. Examples of both widely known and not so widely known domain experts help illuminate what is required.
When the author starts riffing on the malevolent aspects of the mentor/mentee relationship, I think he is off base. Setting that aside, any person that has the drive to be the best will learn something from this book. Super narration.
There is some discussion about rust in this book, but don't expect to learn a lot. Most of the rest of the book seems to be a random collection of other stuff.
Solid story about the key characters and various events that led up to the sinking of the Lusitania. Not a dull moment in the book.
Terrific recap of the run-up to, the fire itself, and aftermath of the tragedy. Filled with interesting detail on the world of the theatre at the turn of the century.
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.
