I am a devotee to behavioral economics. The discipline explains so many unintuitive outcomes and situations. This stream of blogciousness uses anecdotes to align one's thinking toward incentives.

Reading style interesting. Not sure if that gains or loses interest. Overall a very fascinating take from a notable tech figure. Always a fascinating interview. This book fleshes out the person's thoughts. Startup wannabes should all read/listen to this book.

All about how self-justification locks one into a self defeating cycle and how to get out of it. Highly recommend. It's our nature to self justify so we need to be vigilant against it. Others appreciate it more when one does.

Lots of background biographical information. A real guy who didn't have to be. Sad his light is no more. Well written & voiced - like a friend telling the story.

This was an excellent overview of the book. The audio was obviously live but not obnoxiously so. I really enjoyed hearing him speak and add the little things a lecture adds to the already rich text.
