    In the first chapter, Jeff Olson introduces his readers to the idea that every single person on this planet has the potential to turn either into a poor, unsuccessful beach bum or into a successful entrepreneur with a huge balance in his bank account. He tells his own story - about how he went from failure to success to another failure, how he slowly learned that failure and success both happen for the same reason, and that this one single reason can work either for or against you, depending on how you use it.

    Over nine chapters, Gawande makes a detailed and persuasive argument for the use of checklists, not only in surgery, but also in other fields where their use is not as widespread, such as aviation and construction, which have made checklists mandatory. As a consequence of his interest in implementing checklists during surgery, the World Health Organization put Gawande in charge of a team which investigated a trial of surgical checklists over eight countries.

    After an interview about Brene Brown's two previous books, a reporter told her he thought he might start working on his own problems about being exposed, genuine, and open with other people. He thought it would take a long time and be hard to do and asked what would make it worth the effort. She told him that exposing yourself, being willing to let people see the real you with no idea what will happen, is the only way that leads to more happiness, love, and acceptance.

    Many parents today are pressured by society. Society has set very high standards, but parents should set their own standards in life. Setting standards will cultivate a sense of freedom. Many parents think the world is a dangerous place, but it is much safer than they might think. A checklist of things for a child to accomplish in life provides too much structure and takes away from the freedom of childhood.

    Alexander explains that voting is the most basic democratic freedom and right, yet black people throughout US history have been unable to hold or else exercise that right. Furthermore, racial discrimination continues today in a legalized form because once-convicted felons are legally required to explain their background and may be legally refused service or opportunities because of it.

If we concentrate on eating clean, natural, healthy foods, we will have more energy, sleep better, improve athletic performance, be happier, and even have fewer cravings for unhealthy foods. Many people reported physically glowing as well, their friends and family noticing the differences almost as immediately as they themselves did.

    Acemoglu's theory and explanation of the differences in global prosperity are as enlightening as they are entertaining. He manages to make the puzzling concept dead simple to understand because the book, rather than a lengthy lecture explaining the theory, is a series of examples supporting it. After the first chapter, you will fundamentally understand the concept and theory behind this book, and each subsequent chapter will support the theory in fascinating ways.

    Jared Diamond says that 25 years ago he met a politician in what is now Papua New Guinea, Yali, who asked why white people had so many things, but black people did not. The book attempts to provide answers to the question: Why have Eurasian people been the dominant wealth and power in the world? That is, why didn't other cultures gain dominance before 1,500 CE? After all, until the end of the most recent Ice Age, circa 11,000 BCE, all humans were hunter-gatherers.

    Journalist David Cay Johnston has written The Making of Donald Trump in journalistic prose sprinkled with pointed dry humor. His discussions of his various arguments are to the point, but the book lacks some overall organization. While some points made do not add a lot towards the intended depiction of Donald Trump, other elements of Trump's life that could act as supporting evidence are not mentioned at all.

    Bessel Van der Kolk, MD, is the author of The Body Keeps the Score. In this book, Bessel examines the ways that trauma can affect people and how they can recover from past traumatic events. When a person experiences trauma, it will change the wiring in their brain, and this will cause a change in the way that person views their life and everyday situations. Trauma has a negative effect on both the body and mind in a way that will prevent a person affected by trauma from enjoying the present moment.
