Eating a whole foods plant based diet can positively affect 14 out of the 15 leading causes of death in the united states, most importantly hard disease and cancer.

However, if you already heard the message from the documentary "What the health" or from YouTube videos from Dr. Greger, you don't need this book. It's a long and boring list of which food has which benefit (for example beets enhance sports performance). Just eat varied as hell and check out Dr. Gregers daily dozen on nutritionfacts.org.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

I mostly finished it because I didn't have another audiobook and I was bored on the subway. It is well written and it has some points. There is too much I have already read elsewhere. I guess it might be good if you haven't read many self help books yet. I don't recommend it.

Models is the first book ever written on seduction as an emotional process rather than a logical one, a process of connecting with women rather than impressing them. It's the most mature and honest guide on how a man can attract women without faking behavior, without lying and without emulating others. A game-changer.

I feel like this book was very helpful and valuable to me. I understand more about social interactions, especially with women.

This book is realistic, honest and no bullshit.

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King, Jr.; Steve Jobs; and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why. Their natural ability to start with why enabled them to inspire those around them and to achieve remarkable things.

The book has a valid point and illustrates it well. It is longer than necessary. I feel weird taking advice from someone, whose only job is to give advice. Of course he is going to say inspiring things. He doesn't have to test his beliefs against the real world. He makes money if he makes us feel good, and by seeming believable. It doesn't matter to his success whether his advice actually checks out, as long as we believe him long enough to buy his book.

Cal Newport's clearly written manifesto flies in the face of conventional wisdom by suggesting that it should be a person's talent and skill - and not necessarily their passion - that determines their career path. Newport, who graduated from Dartmouth College (Phi Beta Kappa) and earned a PhD from MIT, contends that trying to find what drives us, instead of focusing on areas in which we naturally excel, is ultimately harmful and frustrating to job seekers.

What makes people love their work? How can I avoid spending my life doing something I hate?

These very important questions, that a lot of people ask themselves, are the subject of this book. Current wisdom says to find your passion and pursue it in your work life. Cal Newport argues that this is a bad idea. Instead, one needs to build skills, or career capital, that can be leveraged to find work you love.

It is the most important book I have read so far. So far, I was asking myself "will this career choice make me happy?" before I had acquired the skills to be good enough in that respect to find happiness doing my work.

Popular blogger Cal Newport reveals the new key to achieving success and true meaning in professional life: the ability to master distraction. Many modern knowledge workers now spend most of their brain power battling distraction and interruption, whether because of the incessant pinging of devices, noisy open-plan offices or the difficulty of deciding what deserves their attention the most. When Cal Newport coined the term deep work on his popular blog, Study Hacks, in 2012, he found the concept quickly hit a nerve.

We millenials are using a lot of distracting websites without even thinking about it. We accept it as normal and don't even question it. This book argues that we have collectively lost the skill to work deeply.

After billions of dollars and 50 years of effort, researchers are finally cracking the code on artificial intelligence. As society stands on the cusp of unprecedented change, Jerry Kaplan unpacks the latest advances in robotics, machine learning, and perception powering systems that rival or exceed human capabilities. Driverless cars, robotic helpers, and intelligent agents that promote our interests have the potential to usher in a new age of affluence and leisure.

I learned so much about how economics works. So many things now make sense to me. The book was interesting all the way through, despite being 24h long. I now am less of a leftist. I rather think that capitalism makes a lot of sense and alternatives are not as good as they might seem.

The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won't create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren't learning from them. It's easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But every time we create something new, we go from 0 to 1.

Find your "critical 20%" and transform your time - and life - forever! The 80/20 principle - also known as the Pareto principle - is the well-verified observation that in business, economics, and life generally, about 80 percent of all results flow from a mere 20 percent of our efforts. In this thought-provoking and highly informative program, Richard Koch unveils the secrets to how this mysterious but practical principle actually works... how it is affecting your life right now... and how you can start using it to your advantage.
