    In a compelling business fable, The Myth of Multitasking confronts a popular idea that has come to define our hectic, work-a-day world. This simple yet powerful book shows clearly why multitasking is, in fact, a lie that wastes time and costs money. Far from being efficient, multitasking actually damages productivity and relationships at work and at home.

    Story

    Once you have read the title, you got most of the substance.

    Summary of this book:

    1. Multitasking is not efficient. It's a myth.
    2. If you want to be more efficient, eliminate interruptions and do one thing at a time.

    That's it. If you expect more, unfortunately you won't find it here, so I just saved you the price of the book.

    Why do some products get more word of mouth than others? Why does some online content go viral? Word of mouth makes products, ideas, and behaviors catch on. It's more influential than advertising and far more effective. Can you create word of mouth for your product or idea? According to Berger, you can. Whether you operate a neighborhood restaurant, a corporation with hundreds of employees, or are running for a local office for the first time, the steps that can help your product or idea become viral are the same.

    Great book. It does a good job delivering on its promise: it covers WHY things go viral and how to create stuff that does. If you do any marketing or PR, get it.

  • Take the Stairs: 7 Steps to Achieving True Success

    Do you ride the escalator or do you take the stairs? No matter how you define success, it always requires one thing: self-discipline. But as popular speaker and strategist Rory Vaden explains, we live in an "escalator world", one that's filled with shortcuts, quick fixes, and distractions that make it all too easy to slide into procrastination, compromise, and mediocrity. What seems like an easier path is really much harder in the end - and, most important, it won't take you where you want to go.

    Great book. Rory is a no-nonsense guy and he covers a lot in this book - if you have already read a bunch of motivational books and find most of them shallow and repetitive, regurgitating the same anecdotes and smart catchphrases, here is someone fresh, original, with substance that will help you become a better person. Would recommend him any day over the well known motivational "gurus" who speak a lot but say little. Cory is the real deal.

    Tribes are groups of people aligned around an idea, connected to a leader and to each other. Tribes make our world work, and always have. The new opportunity is that it's easier than ever to find, organize, and lead a tribe. The Web has enabled an explosion of all kinds of tribes - and created shortage of people to lead them. This is the growth industry of our time. Tribes will help you understand exactly what's at stake, and why YOU can and should lead a tribe of your own.

    I almost didn't buy it because of the bad reviews, but after having listened to it, I am glad I did. There might not be a lot of new stuff for you in it if you already read other books from Seth, but if this is your first book about "tribes", it is well worth listening to. Seth has a very sharp eye for connecting dots and can explain them in a way that can shift your thinking. If you want to know how to create your own 'tribe" of followers, this is a good primer on the subject.

    This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies, but against the woman he loves? Tremendous in scope, breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand's magnum opus and launched an ideology and a movement. With the publication of this work in 1957, Rand gained an instant following and became a phenomenon. Atlas Shrugged emerged as a premier moral apologia for capitalism, a defense that had an electrifying effect on millions of readers (and now listeners) who had never heard capitalism defended in other than technical terms.

    A true classic, and a really, really great book about what makes the world work and how to keep it going. You may or may not agree with everything Ayn Rand believed (I don't agree with EVERYTHING, but I agree with the basic tenets of the book). The narrator is incredibly good - actually, this is the best performed audiobook I have ever listened to (and I listened to a lot of them). The characters come to life - you feel like you are right there, part of the story. Couldn't put it down. There are different versions of this audiobook by different performers - GET THIS ONE.
