Waiting for: Moral Letters to Lucilius, Seneca; More Money Than God, Mallaby; Inheritance, Moalem; Random Walk Down Wall Street, Malkiel
I saw the author present his book on the "Talks at Google" series and after listening to him for an hour or so I was initially under the impression that:
a) the content was not really new and
b) that the talk probably covered any new concepts that may be of relevance to me.
As a result I initially decided against reading the book, but am glad I gave it a try despite my reservations. Books like these have a tendency to be redundant. Often they are packed with filler to make the page count. This book is quite the opposite. It is concise, straight to the point with stories inserted where they are relevant. It was obviously written for essentialists by an essentialist. The concept fits right in with the times we are living in, where we have to make more decisions and are exposed to more stimuli than ever before.
If the concept of essentialism resonates with you, this book will help you get and stay on the path. At the end of the day it is about having the right state of mind, this book help you achieve this state of mind. Great narration, quick read, worth a re-read.
Are you trying to get more out of your day? This book is for you. I have read quite a lot of books in this genre and this is one of my favorites. Don't expect rocket science. Basically the book opens your eyes to the simple things that can be used as a lever to achieve the more complex.
Well structured, information dense, hands on, great narrator, quick read, worth a re-read.
A Classic! What more can I say?!
Few books on audible give you more bang for your buck! Only the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius come to mind really!
