“We crave ease, but stimulation is what really makes us happy.” - Eric Barker

Eric Barker draws analogies and wisdom from weird places, making him a very unique writer. Who else would teach you work-life balance channeling the knowledge of Genghis Khan, Spiderman, and Einstein? With statistics and amazing anecdotes, learn what are the strategies that work to be successful and separate them from the ones that are ineffective. 

Understand how success really works with amusing and descriptive examples.

P.S. Barking Up the Wrong Tree is an amazing book that will teach you true strategies to be successful.

P.P.S. It was Albert Einstein who famously said that "once you stop learning, you start dying." It was Bill Gates who said that he would want the ability to read faster if he could only have one superpower in this world.

Good

If you’re into critical thinking, myth busting and open to a change in perspective, you have to read this. If you enjoyed “Outliers” you’ll love this. Well written in a conversational way. Hard to put down.
