Yeah, it's written like a Malcom Gladwell pop-econ book which was apparently enough for it to be my vacation read.

Deep Work by Cal Newport

I remember all of the Michael Lewis books were pretty good. I usually prefer the ones where the author is the narrator, Tony Robbins, Kevin Hart, etc.

But came here just to share that you should get the Libby app. Free audiobooks forever!

Check out born a crime by trevor noah. narrated by trevor.

I was working part time with a start up for 6 months. Loved the work. But the higher management is truly not up to standards. The highest authority in my humble opinion is doing a pretty bad job (but is a great person/human). Anyway. For the sake of the work i wanted to stay. Time comes for them to send over full time contract. Ive seen our budgeting. They’ve told me too. They NEED to expense salaries ASAP to report funding use. However its been 2 months (Cont’d)
