    In this excerpt from In Bed with Susie Bright, Susie interviews Yale psychologist Paul Bloom about his fascinating best-selling book How Pleasure Works: The New Science of Why We Like What We Like. Paul and Susie talk about the pleasures of sex and how we perceive them.

    Story

    Not only was this not an interview, it didn't seem very related to the topic.
    Susie hogged most of the airspace rather than interveiw her interviewee, and seemed very preoccupied with making this all about sex.
    Not that there's anything wrong with sex, and I get how sex it very tied to pleasure, but if that's what you 're going to talk about, make the title "How sexual pleasure works".It would be to your advantage as sex is a very well searched topic and would sell more books. :-)
    I was expecting more of a Malcolm Gladwell-esque type of commentary. At the end of this I felt more confused and put off than educated.

    The 4 Hour Work Week explains what a lifestyle entrepreneur is and why you should want to become one. It teaches you how to "kill" your job and design a life, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to replace your dreams with goals, and more. Listeners can lead a rich life by working only four hours a week, freeing up the rest of their time to spend it living the lives they want.

    Story

    I went out and purchased the hard copy of this book immediately after listening to it. It is the best advice I have had in a long time. The hard copy gave me the myriad of resources this book offers at my fingertips, but giving it a listen first was of great value.
    The only tough thing to listen to was when he rattled off all of the URL's in the book. You need to stand poised with pen and paper to catch them.
    This is the only book I've read where you are given all of the resources you need to actually to what he says.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Story

    Although this is a book for teens, just like Harry Potter, it has adult appeal. The story teller was fantastic. I have never made a point of listening to a story at every chance I had.

    Not only is Tony Hsieh an excellent narrator, he is an incredible, very forward thinking person. If all CEO's of corporations thought like him, the world would be a much better place to live in. This is a must read...er, listen for anyone in business.

    The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness. Jon Ronson's exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world's top neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues.
