The Diversity Delusion argues that the root of this problem is the belief in America’s endemic racism and sexism, a belief that has engendered a metastasizing diversity bureaucracy in society and academia. Diversity commissars denounce meritocratic standards as discriminatory, enforce hiring quotas, and teach students and adults alike to think of themselves as perpetual victims.

In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers" - the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

Very interesting take on success, except it devalues exceptional people by only looking at too few examples from history then painting very broad strokes.

Think you have a good memory? Think again. Memories are our most cherished possessions. We rely on them every day of our lives. They make us who we are. And yet the truth is they are far from being the accurate records of the past we like to think they are. True, we can all admit to having suffered occasional memory lapses, such as entering a room and immediately forgetting why or suddenly being unable to recall the name of someone we've met dozens of times. But what if we have the potential for more profound errors of memory?

Influence, the classic book on persuasion, explains the psychology of why people say yes - and how to apply these understandings. Dr. Robert Cialdini is the seminal expert in the rapidly expanding field of influence and persuasion. His 35 years of rigorous, evidence-based research, along with a three-year program of study on what moves people to change behavior, has resulted in this highly acclaimed book. You'll learn the six universal principles, how to use them to become a skilled persuader - and how to defend yourself against them.

Goes over many of the typical topics that many influence books touch on, however has a much better discussion on their applications and meanings. Much better than "how to win friends and influence people" except the reader takes long pauses at times ... youll see what I mean.

Written as a narrative, it follows the recent discoveries of dinosaurs throughout time.

I love me some dinosaurs, but its written as though the auther believes himself to be Indiana Jones. However it does have some interesting factoids in there... did you know they're discovering an average of 1 new species a week, or how the bird/dinosaur lungs work? If that doesn't interest you, then this isnt the book for you.

Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, wellness, and longevity. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when we don't sleep. Compared to the other basic drives in life - eating, drinking, and reproducing - the purpose of sleep remained elusive.

Youll never want to get less than 8hrs of sleep again. Touches on the physical, mental and social issues caused from a lack of sleep.

It has helped me with high energy levels, lower mental fatigue, better rationalizing, etc which is great for work and play. Buy this book.

In this delightful, acclaimed bestseller, one of the world’s leading cognitive scientists tackles the workings of the human mind. What makes us rational—and why are we so often irrational? How do we see in three dimensions? What makes us happy, afraid, angry, disgusted, or sexually aroused? Why do we fall in love? And how do we grapple with the imponderables of morality, religion, and consciousness?

Well read, but poorly written. It reads like a gossip piece from a glamour magazine.

Having said that, if it gets you laid once, then it's worth the few bucks.
