The Dalai Lama, at his most compassionate and outspoken, here elaborates and deepens his vision for the nonreligious way. Transcending the mere "religion wars", he outlines a system of secular ethics that gives tolerant respect to religion, those that ground ethics in a belief in God and an afterlife, and those that understand good actions as leading to better states of existence in future lives. And yet, with the highest level of spiritual and intellectual authority, the Dalai Lama makes a claim for what he calls a third way.

It’s the first book of His Holiness I listened to - it will for sure not be the last one!
I love is advice on mindfulness, values, compassion, meditation and much more.
This should be part of our educational system.

Weniger arbeiten und besser leben: Die Rente müssen wir uns verdienen. Dass es schon vorher einen Ausweg aus dem Hamsterrad gibt, zeigt der Bestsellerautor Timothy Ferriss mit seinem Hörbuch "Die 4-Stunden-Woche: Mehr Zeit, mehr Geld, mehr Leben". Sympathisch interpretiert von Dietmar Wunder, räumt Ferriss mit der Fehlannahme auf, wirtschaftlicher Erfolg und persönliches Glück seien durch viel Arbeitszeit zu erreichen.

By the man who helped invent the red-hot management process known as "Scrum", Scrum unveils what is wrong with the way we currently do work, and how a simple set of principles, applied in exactly the right sequence, can accelerate productivity and quality as much as 1200 percent. Scrum (which gets its name from the formation in rugby in which the whole team locks its arms to gain control of the ball) is the reason that Amazon can launch a new feature on its website every day.

In The Black Swan Taleb outlined a problem, and in Antifragile he offers a definitive solution: how to gain from disorder and chaos while being protected from fragilities and adverse events. For what Taleb calls the "antifragile" is actually beyond the robust, because it benefits from shocks, uncertainty, and stressors, just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension. The antifragile needs disorder in order to survive and flourish. Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary, and proposes that things be built in an antifragile manner.

Antifragility of systems - certainly a concept which will become more popular soon.

Taleb at his best!
One of the most skeptical and most thought provoking thinkers of our time. I like the part about finding heuristics for detecting fragility (concave) of systems. The importance of non-linearities in our world are perhaps highly underestimated.

Black Swan was the first book I read. Then came Antifragile. Now one of his first pieces (Fooled by randomness). All three are must reads. Enjoy getting wiser/more skeptical ;-)

This audiobook is about luck, or more precisely, how we perceive and deal with luck in life and business. It is already a landmark work, and its title has entered our vocabulary. In its second edition, Fooled by Randomness is now a cornerstone for anyone interested in random outcomes.

I like this book because it reminds me (also working in the finance/risk industry) not to foolishly trust our models. Being skeptical towards forecasters, data miners, pattern searchers, simplifiers, explainers, ... is probably advisable in our world.

Based on their workshops and counseling experience, psychologists Jane B. Burka and Lenora M. Yuen offer a probing, sensitive, and at times humorous look at a problem that affects everyone: students and scientists, secretaries and executives, homemakers and salespeople. Procrastination identifies the reasons we put off tasks - fears of failure, success, control, separation, and attachment - and their roots in our childhood and adult experiences.

It took me more than three months to finish this audiobook. The content is OK but the voice is hard to listening to. You always feel as if the authors look down at you. It feels like as if you were to be pitied.
There are some good concepts in this book. But all in all very vague and general. Can't really remember much from it.
I won't listen to it again.

Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.
