    We live in a world of great and increasing complexity, where even the most expert professionals struggle to master the tasks they face. Longer training, ever more advanced technologies - neither seems to prevent grievous errors. But in a hopeful turn, acclaimed surgeon and writer Atul Gawande finds a remedy in the humblest and simplest of techniques: the checklist.

    Rebecca says: "not his best"
    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    This is not some esoteric examination of a profoundly simple idea --- it is instead an insightful look at the nature of complexity, information, error and organization. The book is animated by powerful, gripping stories about human endeavor, our failings and our achievements. It is a "must listen".

    Lloyd's presentation is also perfect, just the right tone for this book.

  • The Only Three Questions That Count: Investing by Knowing What Others Don't

    Story

    Ken Fisher questions authority. He challenges the conventional wisdom of investing, overturns glib theories with hard facts, and blows up complacent beliefs about money and markets. But the authority he challenges most of all is his own - because challenging yourself, Fisher says, is the key to successful investing.

    Richard says: "The Only Three Questions That Count"
    "Extraordinary"
    Overall

    This is an exceptional audiobook. Packed with information, ideas, and insights, it is at once an easy listen, and one of the most challenging books you will ever find. You won't find any "free answers" inside, but you will find "three questions" and a career's-worth of experience.
