Are you happy?


     Are rich people happy? Some of them are. Some of them aren’t. Here are a few examples. Some of them may not have happy marriage. Some of them may get divorce. Some of them might not talk to their kids in years. Some of them might end up in jail due to financial crime.


 Good Theory


          We might have heard that we should learn from the past. That’s necessary but not sufficient. If we did so, we would be able to deal with what happened, and we wouldn’t be able to deal with new events. We need to learn to deal with future events as well. Good theory is a tool we can use to deal with future events.
“If we can’t see beyond what’s close by, we’re relying on chance on the current of life to guide us. Good theory helps people steer to good decisions, not just in business but in life too.”

Book or Audiobooks?

Personally, I prefer audiobooks. It's fun, and I can listen when I'm doing something else. It also makes other activities (e.g., jogging) a lot more fun. For more detail about audiobooks, please read [this post].

There is one more reason that may encourage you to go for the audiobook version. You can get it now for FREE. Audible offers you a free trial for 14 days. Even if you get the book and cancel the subscription right away (so that you don't have to pay), you can keep the book. And, don't worry if you lost the audiobook file. Just log into audible.com. You can keep downloading the over and over again.

   About the summary: It takes time to finish up a book. And, when you do, sometimes, you want to review what you learn from the book. If you do not make  notes as you read, you might have to go through the book once again. This can be time-consuming when you are dealing with a book. But you can still flip through the book and locate what you are looking for.

However, when the material is an audiobook, it is extremely hard to locate a specific part of content. Most likely you will have to listen to the entire audiobook once again.

This book summary will help solve the pain of having to go through the book all over again.

I am leaving out the details of the books. Most books have interesting examples and case studies, not included here. Reading the original book would be much more entertaining and enlightening. If you like the summary, you may want to get the original from the source below.
