Heading into the holidays, we don’t have much time for reflection. Save that for New Year’s Day. But today we’ll stop down for some conversation about taking charge of your life, no matter who you are. Let’s start with nerds. When you hear that word, what comes to mind? Pasty white basement dwellers? Or the people who rule the world? Comedian Chris Hardwick has some very specific ideas in his new book, The Nerdist Way .
Next, staring sadly at your bank balance? Got some health issues in your life? We’ll lend a hand there as well. Maggie Linton talks with actor and author Hill Harper about his new book, The Wealth Cure .
And to take our minds off our problems, we’ll head to the cinema with The New Yorker’s David Denby to see whether it’s worth plonking down your hard earned movie going dollar.
But first, Maggie has the top-ten Self Development downloads from audible.com. This is Audible is produced by Kim Alexander and Maggie Linton. Kim Alexander is the host. [Original Broadcast Date: November 15, 2011]
