              The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Mlodinow, Leonard; Narrator Pratt, Sean

              In this irreverent and illuminating audio book, acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard Mlodinow shows us how randomness, chance, and probability reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we misunderstand the significance of everything from a casual conversation to... a major financial setback. As a result, successes and failures in life are often attributed to clear and obvious causes, when in actuality they are more profoundly influenced by chance. The rise and fall of your favorite movie star or the most reviled CEO-in fact, all our destinies-reflects chance as much as planning and innate abilities. Even Roger Maris, who beat Babe Ruth's single season home run record, was in all likelihood not great, but just lucky. How could it have happened that a wine was given five out of five stars by one journal and called the worst wine of the decade by another? Wine ratings, school grades, political polls, and many other things in daily life are less reliable than we believe. By showing us the true nature of chance and revealing the psychological illusions that cause us to misjudge the world around us, Mlodinow gives fresh insight into what is really meaningful and how we can make decisions based on a deeper truth. From the classroom to the courtroom, from financial markets to supermarkets, from the doctor's office to the Oval Office, Mlodinow's insights will intrigue, awe, and inspire. Offering listeners not only a tour of randomness, chance and probability but also a new way of looking at the world, this original, unexpected journey reminds us that much in our lives is about as predictable as the steps of a stumbling man afresh from a night at a bar.

              World 3.0: Global Prosperity and How to Achieve It (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Ghemewat, Pankaj; Narrator Pratt, Sean

              The world looks far different today than it did before the global financial crisis struck. Reeling from the most brutal impacts of the recession, governments, economies, and societies everywhere are retrenching and pushing hard for increased protectionism. That's understandable-b...ut it's also dangerous, maintains global economy expert Pankaj Ghemawat in World 3.0. Left unchecked, heightened protectionism could prevent peoples around the world from achieving the true gains afforded by cross-border openness. Ghemawat paints a disturbing picture of what could happen-to household income, availability of goods and services, and other quality-of-life metrics-should globalization continue to reverse direction. He then describes a promising alternative path. Through a series of compelling arguments, he shows how a wide range of players-private businesses, policy makers, citizens, the press-could help open flows of ideas, people, and goods across borders, but in ways that maximize economic benefits for all. World 3.0 reveals how we're not nearly as globalized as we think we are, and how people around the world can secure their collective prosperity through new approaches to cross-border integration. Through thoughtful analysis and compelling cases, he also clarifies the new types of trade-offs we'll need to make to ensure that such integration delivers the promised advantages. And he offers guidance for making those trade-offs. Provocative and bold, this new audio book will surprise and move you-no matter where you stand on globalization.

              Whether they are trying to stay relevant at age 60 in a large corporation, coping with a big new job with unfamiliar rules and methods, facing a scary reality that their industry is in danger of becoming extinct, struggling to get donations for their nonprofit in a troubled econo...my, or, as a result of our current economic crisis, suddenly unemployed and looking for a job, people of all ages and walks of life are scrambling to deal with the vast changes that are happening in every industry, every profession, every part of the world. We're expected to not only keep up, but find new and creative solutions. We find ourselves in uncharted territory with no road map to follow. Knowing that you need to change, or even wanting to change isn't enough. Without rewiring your thinking at the root and knowing what actions to take, all you get from that is wish and want and, usually - stuckness. We need a revolution in the way we think in order to survive in the future. Rather than simply exhorting people to change, I provide a roadmap for how to actually develop the capacity to change.

              The Elements of Investing (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Ellis, Charles D.; Malkiel, Burton G.; Read by Synnestvedt, Erik

              The Elements of Investing has a single-minded goal: to teach the principles of investing in the same pared-to-bone manner that Professor William Strunk Jr. once taught composition to students at Harvard, using his classic little book, The Elements of Style. With great daring, Ell...is and Malkiel imagined their own Little Red Schoolhouse course in investing for every investor around the world--and then the audio book. The objective is the bantam weight champion of investing books for individual investors: a fighting machine, like Rocky, prepared to go toe-to-toe with Benjamin Graham's nemesis, the indominitable Mr. Market. The Elements of Investing hacks away at all the overtrading and overthinking so predominant in the hyperactive thought patterns of the average investor. Malkiel and Ellis offer investors a set of timeless thoughts on how to challenge Mr. Market at his own game, and win by not losing. All the essential rules and principles are dancing here on the head of a pin.

              You Are Now Less Dumb: How to Conquer Mob Mentality, How to Buy Happiness, and All the Other Ways to Outsmart Yourself (Audio CD / Audio)

              David McRaney's first book, You Are Not So Smart, evolves from his wildly popular blog of the same name. A mix of popular psychology and trivia, McRaney's insights have struck a chord with thousands, and his blog-and now podcasts and videos-have become an internet phenomenon. Lik...e You Are Not So Smart, YOU ARE NOW LESS DUMB is grounded in the idea that we all believe ourselves to be objective observers of reality-except we're not. But that's okay, because our delusions keep us sane. Expanding on this premise, McRaney provides eye-opening analyses of fifteen more ways we fool ourselves every day, including: The Misattribution of Arousal (Environmental factors have a greater effect on our emotional arousal than the person right in front of us)Sunk Cost Fallacy (We will engage in something we don't enjoy just to make the time or money already invested worth it )Deindividuation (Despite out best intentions, we practically disappear when subsumed by a mob mentality)McRaney also reveals the true price of happiness, why Benjamin Franklin was such a badass, and how to avoid falling for our own lies. This smart and highly entertaining audiobook will be wowing listeners for years to come.
