In this irreverent and illuminating audiobook, 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.

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

This listen is for the driven and motivated full of exciting tails and near death misses. One of mankind's true elders is Sir Richard Brandon !!

The only downside would be that it seemed to Trail off in the last few chapters sounding more like a letter to his family than a how to become successful and find your own mark in the world.

All in all a good listen!

Lots of great tips on this audible for business folks and basically anyone with a portfolio of assest, cash, stocks, or bonds..... or even thinking of getting into the market. I am not into the market but I am into diversifying bitcoin and other altcoins.. so same principal of this book applies. Saving for your future is something, now at age 59, I have been practicing since age 45.. so I should be set in the next year or so. I only wish I would have saved more... as Tony says... .20% off every paycheck... this simply is not possible for the average Joe.. but definitely a great idea!

Love it Tony!

The 4 hour work week by Tim Ferriss does not disappoint! This very honest and up to date tech savvy writer certainly knows how to motivate and turn the average Joe into a higher thinker! I am a professional webmaster and digital marketer for like 20 years and still found loads to learn in this audio book :)

Although a few years old now, this book still rings true if you follow a disciplined lifestyle, work hard, and make your own luck by networking, diversifying, and keeping an open mind to your future.

Kudos Tim! Took me a couple years to finally get an Audible account and this book was one of the top three I wanted to get right from the start!
