    Sun Tzu's The Art of War is one of the world's most influential books about leadership. It has been read and utilized not only by military professionals and generals, but by CEOs of companies, by teachers and pastors, and by many in leadership positions. Those who want to be successful leaders should follow Sun Tzu's teachings. While his book is focused on war and battle, it can be translated easily to modern day life. The lessons Sun Tzu teaches are vital to manage a successful business or any venture.

    [Contains explicit content] We often describe Sounds Like America as a road trip with comedians at the wheel. That's a loose metaphor for a "rollicking and slightly romanticised journey with funny weirdos hosting." However, this episode is actually literally about road trips and driving, and your host is none other than actually literally Reggie Watts.

    At Walden Pond, Thoreau lived an examined life and realized his full potential while simultaneously developing a spiritual view of the natural world and where humans find themselves in it. Much of Thoreau's time at Walden Pond was spent becoming more mindful, a lesson from which we could all benefit in the hectic, technologically advanced society of modern day.

    Python is easy to learn. You can learn the basics in a day and be productive with it, but there are more-advanced constructs that you will eventually run across if you spend enough time with it. These constructs, while not necessary per se, allow you to be more succinct, to re-use code, and to think about code in a different way. In this audiobook, you will learn how the constructs work and when to use them, receive real-life examples from the standard library, and more. Write Python like the masters.

    The Prince, written by Niccolò Machiavelli in 1513 and published in 1532 posthumously, is one of the most controversial pieces of writing in the world, even from the moment it was presented to “The Magnificent Lorenzo di Piero de'Medici”. Machiavelli was already considered a controversial figure in his time, and this fact, along with his imprisonment, torture, and banishment by the newly reinstated Medici regime, is the most likely reason for its rejection by its intended recipient.

    Decorators are pretty common in modern Python. While not strictly necessary, they can reduce code size while enabling control of function input, invocation, and output. They also enable separation of responsibility and DRY. Many explanations of decorators are brief and leave the listener somewhat confused. This book is an attempt to remedy that. It is based on popular tutorials given at PyCon and in Python user groups.

    Functional programming is a somewhat hidden aspect of Python. Though it supports many of the functional constructs, the style is not widely adopted. On the flip side, functional programming appears to be making a resurgence because of the benefits it can provide. Comprehensions are an alternative Pythonic construct for programming in a similar manner. These are features of Python that are commonly used instead of their functional counterparts.
