    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.

    Story

    This is everything I hoped it would be. The information is solid and the presentation is very well done. If I have any issues it's that I didn't finish the book feeling like I had a great grasp on the techniques he talks about in the book. I'd love to see a PDF with some of it outlined like they have for other books. Just some cheat sheets and bullet points would be fine.

    In a series of illuminating, often surprising experiments, MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking research, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities.

    Is it possible to Reach your genetic potential in 6 months? Sleep 2 hours per day and perform better? Lose more fat than a marathoner by bingeing? Yes, and much more.

    Story

    I don't know that I agree with everything Ferriss covers in this book but he does give you plenty of inspiration and staring points to find your own body hacks and it offers a perspective shift from the common myths and methods that most people follow. You'll have to pick and choose what you care to absorb from this book, but you'll certainly have some good take-aways by the time you're down with it.

    Story

    This book is powerful and inspiring. The information is presented scientifically with very understandable examples and facts. You many need to learn a few new medical terms but at the end of the book you'll have a new outlook on exercise and be inspired to do something about it. If you're looking for a personal trainer approach to this subject, you've got the wrong book. But, if you're looking for a fact filled tour through the brain and how exercise enhances your brain, you've got the best book out there.

    A guide to crafting unforgettable, attention-grabbing business communications – from speeches and letters to business plans - using stories from the world's top business leaders. The world's foremost business leaders are also great storytellers. For example, industry titan Jack Welch has told how his mother instilled enough tough love and confidence in him to overcome the fact that he was the shortest kid in his class and had a severe stutter.

    Story

    I had high hopes for this book but found it to be a collection of short stories that the author would then suggest you tell to others by saying "I am reminded of a story..." and then just repeat the story. That's all well and fine the first 3 times... but I couldn't bare anymore of the formulaic and redundant pattern. No real structure being revealed here.

    If you are an apple person you'll love this book. With so much being made of Steve Jobs lately this book really goes give you access to the madness and genius of the many and his company. There are plenty of take-aways in the book but one of my favorites was this line. All apple products are created equal, some more equal than others."
