Summary

“Do we really need yet another book about the financial crisis? Yes, we do—because this one is different….A must-read for anyone who wants to understand the mess we’re in.”—Paul Krugman, New York Times Book Review “Fox makes business history thrilling.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch A lively history of ideas, The Myth of the Rational Market by former Time Magazine economics columnist Justin Fox, describes with insight and wit the rise and fall of the world’s most influential investing idea: the efficient markets theory. Both a New York Times bestseller and Notable Book of the Year—longlisted for the Financial Times Business Book of the Year Award and named one of Library Journal Best Business Books of the Year—The Myth of the Rational Market carries readers from the earliest days of Wall Street to the current financial crisis, debunking the long-held myth that the stock market is always right in the process while intelligently exploring the replacement theory of behavioral economics.

    Go Pro by Eric Worre | A 15-Minute Summary & Analysis 
    Preview: 
    It's not a pyramid scheme and he's not out to sell you anything – these are the two unspoken promises that Eric Worre should have listed at the start of his book. Though it begins with an infomercial feel and a hyped-up story of success, if the reader can suspend his or her doubt long enough to give Worre a chance, he or she will find that he has good advice to share and valuable pointers for any network marketer, from the complete beginner to the seven-figure-a-year expert. 
    Worre's tone is a mix of professional and conversational, exactly like the strategies he preaches to his readers. His book includes plenty of anecdotes, step-by-step processes, and practice scenarios, all of which are useful and interesting. He also shares his own failures and shortcomings alongside the psychological insights of such, so in this way his personal character is both relatable and trustworthy. The book is also focused and concise; at 160 pages, Worre gives the reader exactly what he or she needs to know – often in numbered lists – without overdoing it.

    The happiness literature is about how to be happier. This book summarizes all of that advice, but adds an important caveat: Roughly one person in nine is born happy, and the other eight must find alternatives to happiness. The good news is that the alternatives to happiness are as satisfying or more than happiness itself. These five alternative modes of positive being are flow, fit, progress towards goals, altruism, and community. The theory is accompanied by practical suggestions about achieving these five modes.
