    How "Aha!" really happens....When do you get your best ideas? You probably answer "At night" or "In the shower" or "Stuck in traffic". You get a flash of insight. Things come together in your mind. You connect the dots. You say to yourself, "Aha! I see what to do." Brain science now reveals how these flashes of insight happen. It's a special form of intuition. We call it strategic intuition, because it gives you an idea for action - a strategy. This new book by William Duggan is the first full treatment of strategic intuition.

    I loved this audiobook. I've ordered the book, too. Great insight into the way we make decisions - maybe.

  • The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule

    Story

    In his previous book, Thomas Frank explained why working America votes for politicians who reserve their favors for the rich. Now, in The Wrecking Crew, Frank examines the Washington those politicians have given us, showing why, no matter what happens in November 2008, we're stuck with it for the foreseeable future.

    Jason P. Stanford says: "A damning criticism of the Conservative movement."
    "The Wrecking Crew"
    Overall

    Speaking as a former Republican, I can say that Thomas Frank documents what I lived through and began to see for myself since the Reagan era. An historical perspective is precisely what we need to be able to set our policies and politics back on a reasonable course. The voice of reason, trust and goodwill has been all but silenced after 30 years of big money and power-grabbing by the "conservative" ideologues.

    I highly recommend this listen for everyone who is fed up with this deregulated and corrupted system.

    These are the two completely new chapters from The World is Flat Release 3.0, on how to be a political activist and social entrepreneur in a flat world, and on the troubling question of how to manage our reputations and privacy in a world in which we are all becoming publishers and public figures.

    Logan says: "WTF?"
    "Required for teachers"
    Overall

    If you are a teacher, read/listen to this book. It is the best book I've read all year. Friedman let's us look at the past, present and future in a way that will impact the way you see your students and your job. Please, read/listen!

  • The Way We Eat: Why Our Food Choices Matter

    Eating is about more than satisfying our hunger. It's also about the environment, social justice, personal development, and sustainable living. Many Americans already know this. We're eating less red meat and more organically produced foods, and most restaurants offer vegetarian options. But do we really know the truth about mechanized animal farming and slaughterhouses, herbicide and pesticide use, and labels that promise "Certified Humane"?

    Overall

    This book is timely. It is a great read and ranks at the top of my list. Singer and Mason offer an ethical, thorough examination of our food choices. It matters on so many levels!
