  2. 2. What do all these people have in common? They achieved success by focusing on the patternsthat shape every aspect of our lives. They succeeded by transforming habits.In The Power of Habit, award-winning New York Times business reporter Charles Duhigg takesus to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they canbe changed. With penetrating intelligence and an ability to distill vast amounts of informationinto engrossing narratives, Duhigg brings to life a whole new understanding of human natureand its potential for transformation.Along the way, we learn why some people and companies struggle to change, despite years oftrying, while others seem to remake themselves overnight. We visit laboratories whereneuroscientists explore how habits work and where, exactly, they reside in our brains. Wediscover how the right habits were crucial to the success of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps,Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, and civil-rights hero Martin Luther King, Jr. We go insideProcter & Gamble, Target superstores, Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church, NFL locker rooms,and the nation’s largest hospitals, and see how implementing so-called keystone habits canearn billions and mean the difference between failure and success, life and death.At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercisingregularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, buildingrevolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding howhabits work.Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we cantransform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and BusinessGo here to listen to an audio sample or for more info: *** The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, DoWhat You Love, and Create a New Future 2/7
  3. 3. (Unabridged) by Chris GuillebeauIn The $100 Startup, Chris Guillebeau tells you how to lead of life of adventure, meaning andpurpose – and earn a good living.Still in his early 30s, Chris is on the verge of completing a tour of every country on earth – he’salready visited more than 175 nations – and yet he’s never held a “real job” or earned a regularpaycheck. Rather, he has a special genius for turning ideas into income, and he uses what heearns both to support his life of adventure and to give back.There are many others like Chris – those who’ve found ways to opt out of traditionalemployment and create the time and income to pursue what they find meaningful. Sometimes,achieving that perfect blend of passion and income doesn’t depend on shelving what youcurrently do. You can start small with your venture, committing little time or money, and wait totake the real plunge when you’re sure it’s successful.In preparing to write this book, Chris identified 1,500 individuals who have built businessesearning $50,000 or more from a modest investment (in many cases, $100 or less), and from thatgroup he’s chosen to focus on the 50 most intriguing case studies. In nearly all cases, peoplewith no special skills discovered aspects of their personal passions that could be monetized,and were able to restructure their lives in ways that gave them greater freedom and fulfillment.Here, finally, distilled into one easy-to-use guide, are the most valuable lessons from thosewho’ve learned how to turn what they do into a gateway to self-fulfillment. It’s all about findingthe intersection between your “expertise” – even if you don’t consider it such – and what otherpeople will pay for. You don’t need an MBA, a business plan or even employees. All you needis a product or service that springs from what you love to do anyway, people willing to pay, anda way to get paid.Not content to talk in generalities, Chris tells you exactly how many dollars his group ofunexpected entrepreneurs required to get their projects up and running; what these individualsdid in the first weeks and months to generate significant cash; some of the key mistakes theymade along the way, and the crucial insights that made the business stick. Among Chris’s keyprinciples: if you’re good at one thing, you’re probably good at something else; never teach aman to fish – sell him the fish instead; and in the battle between planning and action, actionwins.In ancient times, people who were dissatisfied with their lives dreamed of finding magic lamps,buried treasure, or streets paved with gold. Today, we know that it’s up to us to change ourlives. And the best part is, if we change our own life, we can help others change theirs.

  6. 6. *** I’m Feeling Lucky: The Confessions of Google EmployeeNumber 59(Unabridged) by Douglas EdwardsComparing Google to an ordinary business is like comparing a rocket to an Edsel. No academicanalysis or bystander’s account can capture it. Now Doug Edwards, Employee Number 59,offers the first inside view of Google, giving listeners a chance to fully experience the bizarre mixof camaraderie and competition at this phenomenal company.Edwards, Google’s first director of marketing and brand management, describes it as ithappened. We see the first, pioneering steps of Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the company’syoung, idiosyncratic partners; the evolution of the company’s famously nonhierarchicalstructure (where every employee finds a problem to tackle or a feature to create and worksindependently); the development of brand identity; the races to develop and implement eachnew feature; and the many ideas that never came to pass. Above all, Edwards – a formerjournalist who knows how to write – captures the Google Experience, the rollercoaster ride ofbeing part of a company creating itself in a whole new universe.I’m Feeling Lucky captures for the first time the unique, self-invented, yet profoundly importantculture of the world’s most transformative corporation.What the Critics Say“This lively, thoughtful business memoir is more entertaining than it really has any right to be,and should be required reading for startup aficionados.” (Publishers Weekly)“Douglas Edwards is indeed lucky, sort of an accidental millionaire, a reluctant bystander in asea of computer geniuses who changed the world. This is a rare look at what happened insidethe building of the most important company of our time.” (Seth Godin)“Douglas Edwards recounts Google’s stumble and rise with verve and humor and a generosityof spirit. He kept me turning the pages of this engrossing tale.” (Ken Auletta, author of Googled:The End of the World as We Know It) 6/7
  7. 7. “With a warm, approachable tone and perfect pacing, Edwards narrates his detailed account of his experiences as an early employee of Google, Inc….Edwards seems a natural as he provides a highly listenable audio performance….the listener walks away with a better understanding of how true organizational creativity and brilliant technical engineering can impact the human condition and world culture.” (AudioFile) I’m Feeling Lucky: The Confessions of Google Employee Number 59 Go here to listen to an audio sample or for more info: 911&source_code=COMA0213WS031709 *** Browse for bestselling business audiobooks, best selling audiobooks, newly released business audio books and thousands of audiobook bestsellers .Browse thousands of best-selling audio book titles at Bestselling Humor Audio Books More info: 7/7Powered by TCPDF (
