The narrator is great but the content is too out-of-principles for me!!
Just finished the 7 habits of highly effective people listening to Stephen Covey emphasizing for 12 hours on the importance of real deep principles then Machiavelli, feeling dizzy :)
I have read/listened to a handful of books about judgment, decision-making, behavioral economics, and cognitive psychology. Now I have found "The Source"
Daniel Kahneman practically invented those areas of research and after getting a Nobel prize for doing so, he finally decided to write for the ordinary person in a very understandable and enjoyable manner.
Satisfaction guaranteed :)
I have been always fascinated by the brain science, how the mind work and psychology. But I found myself always gravitating to the non-clinical side of it, but the cognitive and social sides, that is "How the normal minds work and how the average person behaves", so I thought a clinical cases book by the great Dr. Sacks can help. I WAS RIGHT.
Why not 5 stars then? because the author didn't in some parts take into consideration that some non-professionals like myself would read it :) A lot of neurological terminology and drug names can sometimes get to my nerves.
After all, a must.
Great advice mixed with some unpractical tips, good narration weakened by dull examples. Could have been much better
The book is supposedly a classic but very badly written, not coherent and rather dull.
The old language and over dramatized narration didn't help.
Amusing,that is about all!
The performance is very captivating and very well "dramatized" but nothing much to the content. Most of the data and advise presented will be very well known to you if you have read any , I mean ANY, financial advice book before.
I love George Carlin and I listened, watched and followed practically every appearance he made before. So, I didn't like this book!
The book is just an un-coherent collection of lots of his performance using even the same phrases he used on stage so nothing new here.
Very optimistic view that paints a pink picture... but if you read enough on the topic elsewhere you will easily realize that Rule #1 is just a fantasy.
Very brief, very shallow and didn't really add much. If you spend couple of hours browsing Youtube for running guides you are better-off.
The headlines says it all, the book is too good and to the point that you will want to re-listen to it.
The book is a superb masterpiece and the most magnificent about it is how it related differently with each and every one of us... for me, I want to live Caballo's life :))
