He breaks it down to 2 things, habit and control. I wish I had this book as a younger person, it would of save me from some of my mistakes. Listen to it many times to get the most out of it.
Another great Michael Lewis Book, once again he shows the "so called' smart people are really as dumb as hell. From fisherman in Iceland, to bankers in Germany, to the whole government of Greece, how to screw up the world. He tells a story in a straight forward, down to earth way.
Only reason for 4 starts on performance is because I like the author to read it. It drives home the work.
I couldn't stop listening to this book, and will listen to it again. Amazing book, to match an amazing person. Not a guy you would like for a friend in normal world, but his friends are not normal, they are geniuses too. In a world of anything Political Correctness, he was a breath of fresh air that will be missed. In his head, perfection was all that mattered. How he got there was always a journey, not always nice but pure in a wierd way. As said in the Dylan song, he was the loser that became the winner.
Highest highs and lowest lows, or what life is truly about.
