    Kafka is one of 161 inspired-and inspiring-minds, among them, novelists, poets, playwrights, painters, philosophers, scientists, and mathematicians, who describe how they subtly maneuver the many (self-inflicted) obstacles and (self-imposed) daily rituals to get done the work they love to do, whether by waking early or staying up late; whether by self-medicating with doughnuts or bathing, drinking vast quantities of coffee, or taking long daily walks.

    What disappointed you about Daily Rituals?

    This book is just short descriptions one after another of some of the daily rituals well known artists and authors had. You'll not find inspiration or enlightenment by listening to this book unless you wanted to know how much alcohol and drugs a specific person consumed while writing a particular book.


    Has Daily Rituals turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Adam Verner’s performances?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Can't think of any. It's just a boring book.


    Any additional comments?

    No

  • The Thank You Economy

    The Thank You Economy is about something big, something greater than any single revolutionary platform. It isn't some abstract concept or wacky business strategy—it's real, and every one of us is doing business in it every day, whether we choose to recognize it or not. It's the way we communicate, the way we buy and sell, the way businesses and consumers interact online and offline.

    ""Crush It" is Better"

    What did you like best about The Thank You Economy? What did you like least?

    Gary is very good to listen to and certainly not a speaker you get bored of however this book seems to be essentially a repeat on the mantra of his first book "Crush It"


    Has The Thank You Economy turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Have you listened to any of Gary Vaynerchuk’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    "Crush It" is a better book and more inspirational.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Buy and read "Crush It" and leave this book on the shelf.
