  • The Paradox of Choice: Why More is Less

    By synthesizing current research in the social sciences, Schwartz makes the counterintuitive case that eliminating choices can greatly reduce the stress, anxiety, and busyness of our lives. He offers eleven practical steps on how to limit choices to a manageable number, have the discipline to focus on the important ones and ignore the rest, and ultimately derive greater satisfaction from the choices you have to make.

    Story

    I have given up on listening because the narration is so poor and there's not enough insight or original thought to overcome that problem. Maybe the basic idea can't be stretched out into a full-length book.

  • I'm Feeling Lucky: The Confessions of Google Employee Number 59

    Comparing Google to an ordinary business is like comparing a rocket to an Edsel. No academic analysis or bystanders account can capture it. Now Doug Edwards, Employee Number 59, offers the first inside view of Google, giving readers a chance to fully experience the bizarre mix of camaraderie and competition at this phenomenal company. I'm Feeling Lucky captures for the first time the unique, self-invented, yet profoundly important culture of the world's most transformative corporation.

    Story

    This is a well-written account of life in Google from the early days up to the IPO, and Douglas Edwards reads his own text very well.

    It is a personal account, but covers many of the key events in the growth of the company from the early days when they built their own computers and packed them tightly into the racks in a data center, through the deals with Yahoo and AOL to the transformation of Google into a huge corporation.

    Of course we know how the story is going to end, and we also know that Marissa Mayer (one colleague with whom he has numerous run-ins) is now CEO of Yahoo, but Douglas Edwards still manages to make it into an absorbing tale.
