The Perfect Day Formula
- How to Own the Day and Control Your Life
- By: Craig Ballantyne
- Narrated by: Craig Ballantyne
- Length: 2 hrs and 37 mins
Most people are stuck. Every day we seem to just go through the motions, following our usual routine without ever stopping and thinking why we do what we do, or what we'd rather be doing instead. But sometimes, we have that one day - that Perfect Day - where everything just clicks. We feel great. We are unstoppable. And at the end of it we think, "Why can't every day be like this?"
Too many promises and a sales speech at the end. Fairly disappointed.

thinly veiled infomercial
I gave this book two stars as people who are just starting out in their career, are very young, or haven't read widely might get something from this book.
for those of you with some experience or more widely read there are far better, more original books.
the book is very repetitive, contains little genuine insignt or analysis, no original or unique thought, and becomes a blatant hard sell for the author's coaching and consulting business and events in the last chapters.

- Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup
- By: John Carreyrou
- Narrated by: Will Damron
- Length: 11 hrs and 36 mins
The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar start-up, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose start-up ‘unicorn’ promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier.
You will never want to stop listening to this masterpiece.

Started looking for long drives to hear more
A classic story of inflated egos where people believed their own lies and bullied the Cassandra's and dissenting voices, the respected leaders that the community trusted to provide oversight and assurance got so caught up in the prestige and power generated by hype that they didn't ask even the most basic of questions - sadly a story that gets played out again and again in organisations large and small.
I enjoyed this cautionary tale and started looking for excuses to go for long drives ...
