    With its trillions of connections, the human brain is more beautiful and complex than anything we could ever build, but it’s far from perfect: our memory is unreliable; we can’t multiply large sums in our heads; advertising manipulates our judgment; we tend to distrust people who are different from us; supernatural beliefs and superstitions are hard to shake; we prefer instant gratification to long-term gain; and what we presume to be rational decisions are often anything but.

    Sean says: "Superficial, but mostly correct"
    "Cool title, but not much new research"
    Overall

    I was interested in the book, because the author was on NPR. After going through it, I was not too impressed. The book covered topics that have been discussed in other brain books and I felt that the author needed to do his research more thoroughly. In the last chapters, he talked too arrogantly about the topic of religion and people’s spirituality.

    If you're interest in how the brain works, a better book would be: The Brain that Changes itself by Norman Doidge". That one, I would give 4+stars. That author is actually a MD talking about the brain.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Good work, Walter Isaacson's best work so far.

    One of the reasons I didn't give the review a 5 was that Isaacson repeated a lot of the stories over the different chapters of the book. He could of made the book a little more concise.

    Over all, I'm glad Isaacson did it and I learned so much about Steve.

    Thank You!

  • Jesus: A Story of Enlightenment

    Jesus is a fresh and inspirational re-imagining of a young man's transformational journey from carpenter's son to revolutionary leader to the man many believe to be the savior of the world. Very little is known or recorded about Jesus in his formative years. In the Gospel stories, we witness the birth of Jesus and then see him as a young boy of 12 intensely questioning the Rabbis in the Second Temple in Jerusalem.

    "Falls short of Deepak's, earlier books"
    Overall

    Most of Deepak Chopra's earlier books I very much enjoyed reading, but this one seems not to come together at all.

    In this remarkable audio program, Dr. Fleming helps you identify your "voice image" and provides techniques for correcting any communication problem. The Sound of Your Voice takes you step-by-step through the fundamentals of good vocal technique. You will learn what your voice says about you, how to analyze your voice and diagnose its problems, how to modify regional dialects and get rid of annoying mannerisms, how to become more assertive, and much more.

    The book is good. Maybe needs a new edition that's not from the 80s. It seems a bit dated when the authors talks about how to use a hifi tape recorder.

    In this revolutionary look at the brain, best-selling author, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., introduces both the brilliant scientists championing this new science of neuroplasticity and the astonishing progress of the people whose lives they've transformed.

    Introducing principles we can all use, as well as a riveting collection of case histories, The Brain That Changes Itself has "implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history."

    "Crucial" conversations are interpersonal exchanges at work or at home that we dread having but know we cannot avoid. How do you say what needs to be said while avoiding an argument with a boss, child, or relationship partner? Crucial Conversations offers readers a proven seven-point strategy for achieving their goals in all those emotionally, psychologically, or legally charged situations that can arise in their professional and personal lives.

    F. Webster says: "Great communication tools!"
    "Good begining"
    Overall

    Good begining needs more a solid ending
