Burns is a self-help guide to using cognitive therapy (CT) as an effective, scientifically proven tool for combating depression of all degrees, especially when used in combination with therapy and possibly medication.

When people can change their thinking, they can drastically and often rapidly improve their mood.

    Platforms connect two types of users in order to exchange something of value. This is different from the traditional pipeline model of business where something of value is created by transferring it from producer to producer with the consumer receiving it at the last step. Platforms are dominating production processes particularly because they reduce the costs of value creation, consumption, and quality control.

    Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us (2011) is a book about human motivations. Many of the prevailing ideas about why humans make decisions and operate the way they do aren't true or, at least, they are incomplete. Businesses, schools, and organizations are stuck in outdated, unexamined beliefs about human motivation. These beliefs are rooted in the idea of extrinsic motivation - that people make decisions based on external rewards and punishments.

    Structured as a six-week plan, I Will Teach You to Be Rich offers no get-rich-quick schemes or stock tips. Instead, the book focuses on long-term, personal finance strategies that build wealth over the course of decades, making the 20-something listener a perfect target audience. The plan also urges its adherents to forego the small changes, like nixing the daily Starbucks latte, to set their sights on far bigger goals that they can achieve over the long term.

Elites in underdeveloped countries deliberately plunder their people and keep them impoverished.

    A group of old school friends meet to catch up. They end up discussing the unexpected, unforeseen changes to their lives, and one friend offers to tell a story about adapting to change. The story he tells involves four characters, two mice named Sniff and Scurry, and two "Littlepeople" named Hem and Haw. All of them are in a maze, looking for cheese, which they need to survive.
