Still relevant. Interesting.
Felt more like an essay of Sam's opinions than a book.
Felt more like a criticism of academia. Radical, had some compelling arguments, but I felt like he contradicted himself sometimes.
For example he seemed to be proud of Steve Jobs because he built a business like an artisan - even focusing on making the inside of the iPhone beautiful - granted. Then he goes on to talk about how great products do not need advertising .
Well, the disconnect here is that, Apple has a big budget for advertising.
There is a lot that goes into why we do what we do
Not one of his best works, but a good read.
... Election night. 2016
Not sure what the author was trying to get at.
Practical use of maths
Repeats concepts in other books. Not a bad read though
Great read, good to think differently and not just follow the crowd
Another good book on evolutionary psychology
Good follow up to "You are not so smart"
This book is great in general, but some chapters can get a bit arid.
A must read, especially for managers.
How much control do you think you have.
A must read. Most of us live in an unrealistic world, unfortunately. Even though this book makes sense, society is far from achieving anything like this.
The brain is very interesting
Mutual understanding is complicated
Show is great but books are better
An attempt to explain humanity
Read before you start a business
Good follow up to freakeconomics
Real life economics, no BS, no complicated models.
Money is an illusion
A great place to start learning about the Middle East
Break down of inequality
Another interesting take on why society is structured the way it is
Maths for the non math buff
What shapes society. Helps make sense on why we do what we do. Strong on evolutionary psychology. A must read.
Throws more light on how fear is necessary for belief
