  • Endgame: The End of The Debt Supercycle And How It Changes Everything

    Hundreds of books have been written about the financial crisis that engulfed the world after Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. But what if the bigger financial crisis is ahead of us, not behind us?As John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper deftly illustrate in this controversial audio book, the crisis was more than a half-century in the making. The Great Financial Crisis, however, was merely Act I.

    Story

    You will be better able to make your own financial and even political choices. You will understand how global debt/leverage creates instability, and how that affects national and global economy.

    Both scholarly and readable, this is a thorough, practical report in very palatable form, and in terms understandable by the curious layman.

    The book is a perfectly clear description and explaination of the effect of debt/leverage on financial/economic dynamics, on national and global scales, and in historical context. Its theses are extremely well explained and supported.

    Story

    A disease of unparalleled destructive force has sprung up almost simultaneously in every corner of the globe, all but destroying the human race. One survivor, strangely immune to the effects of the epidemic, ventures forward to experience a world without man. What he ultimately discovers will prove far more astonishing than anything he'd either dreaded or hoped for.

    Story

    Brilliantly conceived and developed, this is not the frivolous, forgettable science fiction we are so used to. Even at 65 years old, it is still relevant, fresh, thought provoking, and fun. We should all hope to be so at 65.

    The infection has begun, ravaging the American Southwest and leaving chaos in its wake. In this new world, there will be no last meal, no dying wish. The only reward left is to survive another day...

    Story

    Mildly entertaining, but I really can't recommend it.
    If you want a good post-apocalyptic story, "Earth Abides" is still excellent, even after 60 years.

  • The Law of Success: From the Master Mind to the Golden Rule (in Sixteen Lessons)

    Napoleon Hill, born into poverty in 1883, began writing as a reporter for small town newspapers while just a teenager. When industrialist Andrew Carnegie commissioned him in 1908 to interview over 500 successful men and women to help prove his theory that success could be distilled down to a clear-cut formula, Hill met with hundreds of the richest and most famous people of the time.

    Story

    "The Law of Success" is a case of a fine writer in desperate need of a hard-boiled editor. There is some very good content here, buried neath a mountain of drivel.

    Surely the secret of life, the universe, and everything is revealed in Part 3, but I can stand no more.

    And to audible.com: Keep the money; I want my time back!

  • The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    Story

    Habits are not magic. Habits of every kind - from work habits, to athletics, to eating, to addictions - can be shaped. By accident or by intention, habits are built or changed every day.

    This book provides a methodology for understanding and shaping habits. And it backs up the practicum with clearly understandable evidence.

    Every trainer of any kind: sales trainers, sports coaches, people wanting to change their own daily habits, must study this!

    I'm 63, and all my years of studying behavior, including a behavioral psych degree, this is the best source I've ever found for understanding and shaping habits... mine, my kids, anyone's.

    Wallace D. Wattles was an American "New Thought" writer who wrote this amazing little book in 1910. It caused a sensation then, and continues to be popular today. In fact, Rhonda Byrne said that part of her inspriation for her best-selling book and film The Secret came from this book.

    Story

    I now wonder why I bothered to audit this book.
    Its author, (however personally respectable,) was and remains obscure and unimportant. The work is just mysticism crossed with power-of-positive-thinking happy claptrap.
    For any realist, the book is mostly a waste of time.
