When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction, and anxiety, he did not intend to write what is undoubtedly his most personal book. But upon discovering how these remarkable substances are improving the lives not only of the mentally ill but also of healthy people coming to grips with the challenges of everyday life, he decided to explore the landscape of the mind in the first person as well as the third.

Loved every aspect of it and the struggle of the author to accept the esoteric part just as it is. Instead he is trying to reason and find empirical research and provides examples of recent developments in the field of psychedelic psychotherapy. But this doesn't imply that the writing is boring rather it tries to mediate the fact of the profound effect or underlying magic of psychedelic on our minds.

From the author of the blockbuster best seller The Game: a shockingly personal, surprisingly relatable, brutally honest memoir in which the celebrated dating expert confronts the greatest challenge he has ever faced: monogamy and fidelity.

In The Outsiders, you'll learn the traits and methods striking for their consistency and relentless rationality that helped these unique leaders achieve such exceptional performance. Humble, unassuming, and often frugal, these "outsiders" shunned Wall Street and the press, and shied away from the hottest new management trends. Instead, they shared specific traits that put them and the companies they led on winning trajectories: a laser-sharp focus on per share value as opposed to earnings or sales growth; an exceptional talent for allocating capital and human resources; and the belief that cash flow, not reported earnings, determines a company's long-term value.

Amazon.com started off delivering books through the mail. But its visionary founder, Jeff Bezos, wasn't content with being a bookseller. He wanted Amazon to become the everything store, offering limitless selection and seductive convenience at disruptively low prices. To do so, he developed a corporate culture of relentless ambition and secrecy that's never been cracked. Until now.

The story touches mostly on the developments about Amazon and gives sufficient information to establish an opinion about Bezos's past and future development. Given the last pages, there is a lot more to come and more to write about.

Great read/listening.

Creativity, Inc. is a book for managers who want to lead their employees to new heights, a manual for anyone who strives for originality, and the first-ever, all-access trip into the nerve center of Pixar Animation - into the meetings, postmortems, and "Braintrust" sessions where some of the most successful films in history are made. It is, at heart, a book about how to build a creative culture - but it is also, as Pixar co-founder and president Ed Catmull writes, "an expression of the ideas that I believe make the best in us possible."

In Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography, Walter Isaacson provides an extraordinary account of Jobs' professional and personal life.

Entertaining, inspirational, informative and good lecture for leadership.
W. Isaacson shows not only the evolvement of Jobs but also from Apple over the years and the company's he worked on. A detailed descriptions of the up's and downs and how Jobs shaped the industry but also how his position shaped him. Jobs kept his hunger for revolution until the end. He showed Jobs during his vulnerability, learning and brilliant periods.
Although I understand that it is a great example of Jobs presentation style to describe the iPhone unveiling. However, it confuses that it one's appears somewhere between 85-90s and then the actual unveiling in 2007.
After the book you start to see more behind Apple.
I would like to read about Elon Musk written by W. Isaacson.

Bei 50% of the book I knew already that I'm going to buy others too. It's really inspiring and also shows different ways of thinking more out of the box. This is kind of person which thoughts, way of life and views you can admire.
Moreover I wish that the book wouldn't end.
But what the heck there are other books from Richard available.
