Book facts, figures and consumer reports
Hi there! I am Dani Oswald, avid word consumer. I am located in Sydney Australia and share with you my views and cheat sheets for some of the most fascinating books I have read and some that disappoint. In my videos, watch me page through the book and point out some quality facts as well as things I found personally relevant.
This site was conceived of in 2011, and has been providing quality facts, figures and consumer reports on easily read, informative and interesting books to the public ever since. Enjoy.
Outliers Book by Malcolm Gladwell – What are the real factors that make individuals super succesful – and its not talent or personal effort (although these play a role)
Ten Steps Ahead by Erik Calonius – What do the top business people do automatically that you and I could learn.
Gut Feelings by Gerd Gigerenzer – How does intuition work? What “rules of thumb” or Fast and Frugal decision tree can you use to make accurate decisions better than trusting intuitions or complex probabilities in the face of a number of factors.
The Drunkards Walk by Leonard Mlodinow – Think you have much control over your life? Find out how randomness rules our lives and why doubling your failure rate becomes essential
The Luck Factor by Max Gunther – Change your luck for the better by following some logical truths of lucky people.
Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely – When you think you are perfectly rationally in control – think again!
“You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.”- attributed to Charles Jones
Blessing and best wishes – Dani
