  • The Diabetes Code

  • Prevent and Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally

Today, most doctors, dietitians, and even diabetes specialists consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease - a life sentence with no possibility of parole. But the truth, as Dr. Fung reveals in this paradigm-shifting book, is that type 2 diabetes is reversible. Writing with clear, persuasive language, he explains why conventional treatments that rely on insulin or other blood-glucose-lowering drugs can actually exacerbate the problem, leading to significant weight gain and even heart disease.

Nothing "goes viral". If you think a popular movie, song, or app came out of nowhere to become a word-of-mouth success in today's crowded media environment, you're missing the real story. Each blockbuster has a secret history - of power, influence, dark broadcasters, and passionate cults that turn some new products into cultural phenomena. In his groundbreaking investigation, Atlantic senior editor Derek Thompson uncovers the hidden psychology of why we like what we like.

The beginning of this book was brilliant. I didn’t want to stop listening. The ending was also quite good. However, in the middle the author chooses to add largely irrelevant material and also decides to get on a soapbox. Not necessarily a bad one, but still not how I wished to spend my time. I would have liked to rate this 3.5. Half stars are not allowed, so I opted to round up rather than down. Much of the info is common sense, but it is still really good info and the nuggets of gold outweigh the negatives.

  • How to Write a Song: Beginner's Guide to Writing a Song in 60 Minutes or Less

The book has purposefully been designed for those who want to learn how to write a song, but don't know where to start. It packs everything there is to know about writing a great song, from its structure to its thought process. But the book also doesn't forget about your personal business and hectic schedule, especially if you're a person who's planning on doing this part-time. I've described a really simple way to write a song, all in an hour, with the help of simple and refined techniques.

Good basic information for a beginner regarding song structure, but sometimes not easy to follow. Not a ton of meat, but not bad for the price.

Scrum is a project management approach based on Agile principles that allows organisations and individuals to deliver the highest possible value in the shorted possible time. This framework has often been met with adversity as it is a departure to traditional methods, but has stood the test of time and has demonstrated through countless organisation that they are able to deliver more with less.

This felt like it was the most boring 4 hours I have experienced in many many years - and it was only 52 minutes long!!! Lol
For that reason, I wanted to rate this book with only 1 star. However, I realize that this may just be an especially uninteresting topic for me. For someone who would like a "quick" guide on how to run a scrum project, this book is probably quite helpful. It did seem to have loads of instruction.

Think smart people are just born that way? Think again. Drawing on diverse studies of the mind, from psychology to linguistics, philosophy, and learning science, Art Markman, Ph.D., demonstrates the difference between "smart thinking" and raw intelligence, showing listeners how memory works, how to learn effectively, and how to use knowledge to get things done. He then introduces his own three-part formula for listeners to employ "smart thinking" in their daily lives.

The opportunities Facebook presents for businesses to connect to their customers and advertise their products and services as well as manage their brand identities is simply too good to pass up for any serious business. By not optimizing the myriad of possibilities Facebook offers to the modern online entrepreneur, you are leaving money on the table!
