    A novelist, thinker, and entrepreneur, Rolf Dobelli deftly shows that in order to lead happier, more prosperous lives, we don't need extra cunning, new ideas, shiny gadgets, or more frantic hyperactivity - all we need is less irrationality. Simple, clear, and always surprising, this indispensable audiobook will change the way you think and transform your decision making - at work, at home, every day.

    Peter says: "Some good information, but basically just a list."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Now Habit the most enjoyable?

    Fiore offers compelling insights into the way procrastination is rooted in our deepest fears, and those closed off places inside ourselves we often don't acknowledge. You'll find yourself wandering off in thought about your own ideas about work and some of the reasons you might procrastinate. If I were reading a hard copy of the book, this would be the kind of book that I'd frequently have to put down to think, so I would definitely recommend listening to more than once.


    What other book might you compare The Now Habit to and why?

    This book reminds me of The 7 Secrets of the Prolific: The Definitive Guide to Overcoming Procrastination, Perfectionism, and Writer's Block by Hillary Rettig because of both implore you to think about your reasons for procrastination rather than give you a prefabricated system to follow (think Getting Things Done by David Allen).


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Neil Fiore?

    Anyone would've been better. He had a weird cadence and throughout the performances sentences seemed to break up in weird places.

    Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

    Pi says: "Jarring change in Dotrice's performance"
    "Amazing."

    What made the experience of listening to A Feast for Crows the most enjoyable?

    This story is so grand.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Feast for Crows?

    I can't answer this without spoiling the story, but what I can say is that everyone gets what's coming to them in this story.

    Twenty years ago, it was as if someone turned on a light. The future blazed into existence with each deliberate word that William Gibson laid down. The winner of Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer didn't just explode onto the science fiction scene - it permeated into the collective consciousness, culture, science, and technology.Today, there is only one science fiction masterpiece to thank for the term "cyberpunk," for easing the way into the information age and Internet society.

    David says: "5 stars for coolness, 3 stars for give-a-heckness"
    "I know it's a classic, but..."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, because it's a classic.


    If you’ve listened to books by William Gibson before, how does this one compare?

    I'd never read/heard Gibson before, but I love sci-fi and am currently reading all the classics so that I can become a "REAL" sci-fi fan.


    Could you see Neuromancer being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NO.
