Chris Bailey turned down lucrative job offers to pursue a lifelong dream - to spend a year performing a deep dive experiment into the pursuit of productivity, a subject he had been enamored with since he was a teenager. After obtaining his business degree, he created a blog to chronicle a year-long series of productivity experiments he conducted on himself, where he also continued his research and interviews with some of the world's foremost experts, from Charles Duhigg to David Allen.

Not what you'd think of when contemplating ways to be more productive, but this approach is fantastic and mindful. Chris' reading of his book is clear, well-paced, and entertaining. This was by far the best audiobook I have listened to on thus kind of subject matter, and I will surely re-listen a few times. I would highly recommend it!

Sprung from their hugely successful podcast Canadianity, Taggart (that guy from that band) and Torrens (that guy from that show) share a collection of showbiz tales from the road and relatable everyday anecdotes, all wrapped up in a nostalgic fondness for this great country. Canadianity takes listeners on a cross-country journey, shining the spotlight on notable local heroes (or bahds), the best places to crush food and the greasiest watering holes, coast to coast to coast.

I loved listening to this book- Taggart and Torrens really have an interesting love for Canada. I think it'd be great in book form, as the frequent list-games (like "Lake or Fake?") would be easier to follow along with if you could look up to see what numbers 3, 14, 16 and 17 were rather than having to replay and remember them all. Also, I think the audiobook could've used finer editing, as there were a few repeated phrases where they left in two different takes on the same line. That said, I still thoroughly enjoyed their storytelling and the comedic tone of the book. Totally would recommend!
