    People who are trying to solve tough economic, social, or environmental problems often find themselves frustratingly stuck. They cannot solve their problems in their current context; the larger system within which they are operating is too unstable or unfair or unsustainable. They cannot transform this system on their own or by working only with their friends or colleagues; the system is too complex to be grasped or shifted by any one person or organization or sector.

    The narrator was great and still sounded clear even at a fast speed. The scope covered was significant. I will need more research on how to replicate the approach, though.

    Facebook, PayPal, Alibaba, Uber - these seemingly disparate companies have upended entire industries by harnessing a single phenomenon: the platform business model. Platform Revolution delivers the first comprehensive analysis of how platforms use technology to match producers and consumers in a multisided marketplace, unlocking hidden resources and creating new forms of value. When a company like Uber connects drivers with passengers, everybody wins - except traditional cab companies, which are scrambling to survive.

    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    This book resolved my confusion about choosing between whole and processed wheat products - they're not much different! Once I took its advice and left out wheat from the menu altogether, I saw my weight gain stop and reverse soon afterwards. It's incredible!! Don't just read the book, try it for a couple of months and see for yourself.

  • A Course in Miracles: Text, Vol. 1

    A Course in Miracles, also known as "the Course" or ACIM, was scribed by Dr. Helen Schucman. It is a self-study course that aims to assist listeners, readers, and students in achieving spiritual transformation. Book 1: Text is largely theoretical, and sets forth the concepts on which the Course's thought system is based. Its ideas contain the foundation for the lessons in Book 2, the Workbook for Students.

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    For the Biblically-oriented, the course is the clearest explanation that I have come across of how to actually live and obtain the promises of the Beatitudes of the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew5:1-12; Luke6:20-49) - Jesus' greatest sermon about our human spiritual needs for self-actualization. For example, becoming “clean of heart” so that we will see God can be understood by studying the course as "forgiving all the errors in our beliefs and others', so that we will perceive the world rightly without judgement'. The course clearly aims to go well beyond activating aspects of our higher self in order to live an enlightened life, to becoming fully-aware children of God living in conscious union with Him; from living at 0.01%.of our abilities to 100% - incapable of fear or lack.

    I couldn't fit the course into any single religion - Orthodox Christianity, New Age (Gnostic, Christian Science, etc.) or Eastern (Buddhism, Hinduism). While there were elements of similarity, the need of any one religion to differentiate itself from another introduces traditions and cultures which then distracts from the message. The course content is what some of the nondualistic religions would probably communicate without their exoteric variations. Unfortunately, religious traditions make it difficult for a 'believer of a religion' who has committed faith into it to be open-minded - at least until a circumstance in their lives force them to open their minds to truth.

    For any seeker of truth and self-actualization, the truth in the course is self-evident and outlines the path to a very high level of transcendent enlightenment which unlike many paths, is undiluted by any tradition keepers egos.

    This is without a doubt, the second most important book I have ever read (alongside the Bible inclusive, despite all its re-written history and missing gaps). I predict that it will be influential in ushering in an age of long-lasting peace and abundance.

    I hope this helps any careful Truth-seeker (Christians inclusive).

    Innovation may be the hottest discipline around today - in business circles and beyond. And for good reason. Innovation transforms companies and markets. It’s the key to solving vexing social problems. And it makes or breaks professional careers. For all the enthusiasm the topic inspires, however, the practice of innovation remains stubbornly impenetrable. No longer. In The Little Black Book of Innovation, long-time innovation expert Scott D.
