Humorous, surprising, and informative, Dr. Peterson tells us why skateboarding boys and girls must be left alone, what terrible fate awaits those who criticize too easily, and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the street.

if you can't listen to it with your significant other it's okay. This book changed my relationship for the better. We listened to it together and the gems we took from listening and our discussions helped to strengthen our relationship.

Re-listen to each chapter as you go through it. i

In Super Bowl XLIX, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made one of the most controversial calls in football history: With 26 seconds remaining, and trailing by four at the Patriots' one-yard line, he called for a pass instead of a handing off to his star running back. The pass was intercepted, and the Seahawks lost. Critics called it the dumbest play in history. But was the call really that bad? Or did Carroll actually make a great move that was ruined by bad luck? Even the best decision doesn't yield the best outcome every time.

Minimalism is the thing that gets us past the things that clutter our lives so we can make room for life's most important things - which actually aren't things at all. At age 30, best friends Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus walked away from their six-figure corporate careers, jettisoned most of their material possessions, and started focusing on what's truly important.

This is a How to book. It's pretty hardcore on how to minimize your possessions. It's flexible and shows you what an ideal minimalist life is like. The reader doesn't need to go to the extreme but should know what it looks like. there are a lot of great ideas and tips to get started. I was expecting a story but this was just as useful non the less.

The story WI tells is in credible. It might seem like he goes too far into the minute details but with out those details I don't think you would feel as invested in the story. The amount of details he provides is typical of his style and can seen in the Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein bios.
