This book really got my wheels turning about how I could apply these great insights in my own life to drive change.
The story of Pepsodent.
I've listened to his books before and was excited when I realized it was him doing the reading. He brings emotion and emphasis without going over the top.
Cues. Routine. Reward. Keep the cue and reward the same, change the routine — the most effective way to change behavior.
I loved it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys non-fiction.
Lewis somehow takes the dense, complicated and potentially boring details of a topic like flash trading and not only makes it understandable, he crafts it into a great story.
The storyline was exciting and the bigger questions it raises about our financial system are really compelling and important.
You just can't go wrong with books by Michael Lewis.
It was short and straightforward. It didn't rehash the same point over and over the way some of these books do.
The first half of the book affected me like nothing I've read in a long time. But once he's done painting a vivd picture of how broke the system is, he starts down this inane path about hunting and gathering and trying to cook some special meals. It's self-indulgent and uninteresting beyond words. But the first half was SO GOOD. It's still worth it to me.
MOST: Investigation into the realities of where our food comes from. LEAST: His personal quest to build meals in the second half.
Polyface Farms. Such a brilliant model.
It was long. And the second half seemed interminable.
It was worth it.
She's a great narrator. And she customized the book to reflect the audiobook format in places. It really felt like she cared about the format enough to make it its own piece of work.
Talking about management and what she learned from Lorne Michaels.
This is my first, but I hope there are more to come.
Keeping it real in the unreal world of film and TV.
Get it now.
Overall, it feels like some really good ideas that were put together into a very convincing argument or compelling story.
Probably not. I found listening to this to be a bit of a chore. While I'm glad I stuck with it, I was honestly pretty happy when it was over.
Unemotional, mechanical, solid.
No. I felt like this one could have been a bit shorter.
Try REWORK instead.
