    Personal Productivity Secrets gives you everything you need to know to be organized, in control, and to get things done. Understand how your brain absorbs, organizes, and filters the daily deluge of information, and learn to trick your brain into being more productive. Appreciate the difference between "time management" and "attention management" and create workflow processes that help you defend your attention.

    Alfonso Braggatti says: "Copy of "Getting Things Done," just worse."

    Story

    Excellent ideas and system structure for increasing overall productivity. Two shortcomings: the technology references need updating after 5+ years; and, many readers listen to audiobooks while driving, etc. The constant references to a PDF that supplements the audiobook is not helpful. By its nature, it is highly unlikely he that a listener would be able to review the PDF document while listening to the audiobook. The suggestion might be to incorporate the aforementioned technology references into the PDF guide so that it could be reviewed separately from the audiobook and thereby eliminating the need for updating the audiobook and instead just update the PDF supplement.

  • The Real North Korea: Life and Politics in the Failed Stalinist Utopia

    Andrei Lankov has gone where few outsiders have ever been. A native of the former Soviet Union, he lived as an exchange student in North Korea in the 1980s. He has studied it for his entire career, using his fluency in Korean and personal contacts to build a rich, nuanced understanding. In The Real North Korea, Lankov substitutes cold, clear analysis for the overheated rhetoric surrounding this opaque police state.

    RP says: "A thorough look at the puzzle that is North Korea"

    Story

    The book is written by a Russian author with years of first hand experience. The book is from 2014 and stops just short of Kim Jong-un’s rule. I was left with two key understandings which I don’t consider spoilers.

    The Kim dynasty’s function is to survive as the great Leaders of North Korea and everything they do on the world stage is calculated to that end.

    Any practical options to interfere with that plan will take decades and must come from within.
