Part instruction manual, part someone else's diary, My Morning Routine features interviews with 64 of today's most successful people - including three-time Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Soni, Twitter cofounder Biz Stone, and General Stanley McChrystal - and offers advice on creating a routine of your own. Some routines are all about early morning exercise and spartan living; others are more leisurely and self-indulgent. What they have in common is they don't feel like a chore. Once you land on the right routine, you'll look forward to waking up.

I enjoyed this and would recommend it but be aware that a lot of the interviews are similar and it felt like a lot of the people worked for themselves so they have a lot more freedom in their morning. Despite not being a parent I felt I related more with their more hectic mornings.

All our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favorites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not: computers, too, face the same constraints, so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such problems for decades.

I had to listen to this one in smaller chunks and I actually stopped for a good length of time. I enjoyed the science behind it, and I think I would have just preferred this book in print form. Often I felt I was missing some information and would have benefited with re-reading what was just said. Overall I enjoyed it, but just would have probably liked it better in print, or with a print copy to follow along with.
