    Ask a member of the middle class what it takes to become wealthy, and she'll tell you it takes a bold new idea. Tell that to a self-made millionaire, and he'll vehemently disagree. What explains the difference in mind-set between the self-made wealthy and the rest of us? It's not what you think, as journalist and entrepreneur Lewis Schiff convincingly illustrates through groundbreaking research and compelling storytelling.

    Hayden says: "The lessons are very different to what I expected"
    "Fun listen that kept my attention."

    Would you listen to Business Brilliant again? Why?

    I've listened to it at least twice. It's packed with so many stories that serve as good reminders for me personally that I enjoy hearing so that they sink in and serve me well in my business journey.

  • Thinking, Fast and Slow

    Story
    (2432)

    The guru to the gurus at last shares his knowledge with the rest of us. Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman's seminal studies in behavioral psychology, behavioral economics, and happiness studies have influenced numerous other authors, including Steven Pinker and Malcolm Gladwell. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman at last offers his own, first book for the general public. It is a lucid and enlightening summary of his life's work. It will change the way you think about thinking. Two systems drive the way we think and make choices, Kahneman explains....

    Mike Kircher says: "Difficult Listen, but Probably a Great Read"
    "This book opened me up to a whole new world."

    Any additional comments?

    I found the book extremely insightful. So much so that I've started to research more deeply the work of Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman.

    In Decisive, the Heaths, based on an exhaustive study of the decision-making literature, introduce a four-step process designed to counteract these biases. Written in an engaging and compulsively listenable style, Decisive takes readers on an unforgettable journey, from a rock star’s ingenious decision-making trick to a CEO’s disastrous acquisition, to a single question that can often resolve thorny personal decisions.

    G. House Sr. says: "Solid Wothwhile Advice - get you WRAP on"
    "Great work Heath brothers!"

    Would you listen to Decisive again? Why?

    I've listened to this a couple times, because I've gained something new with each listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that it provides useful tactics that work. Though many are common sense, we don't often make decisions in a structured fashion. The framework provided helps me in guiding others through their decision problems as well.

    If you could sum up The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business in three words, what would they be?

    Although I do appreciate all that I've learned from my actual MBA, I can't deny the value of the well organized nuggets Josh provides here. His voice is at times annoying, but not completely so.

  • How to Measure Anything: Finding the Value of 'Intangibles' in Business

    Anything can be measured. This bold assertion is the key to solving many problems in business and life in general. The myth that certain things can't be measured is a significant drain on our nation's economy, public welfare, the environment, and even national security. In fact, the chances are good that some part of your life or your professional responsibilities is greatly harmed by a lack of measurement---by you, your firm, or even your government.
