Weeks 31 – 32

"Influence" by Robert B. Cialdini

How many times have you been played for a sucker by a seller who sold you something you didn't even want? The author of the book had it one time too many. That's why he decided to research what methods of influence work on people.

His approach? Start working in positions that require an influential approach and learn from the best. Door-to-door salespeople, street fundraisers, and other professionals have their ways of meeting their goals.

Bad news? You can't get immunity from these tactics. Good news? You can at least learn to recognize them!

Fun fact: This is the most recommended book in our database so far!

Just 24 pages (or 44 minutes for an audiobook) a day to finish it in 2 weeks 🙌 

Weeks 33 – 34

"On the Shortness of Life" by Seneca

This book is one of the three great works of stoic wisdom. Together with "Meditations" by Marcus Aurelius and "Discourses" by Epictetus, these are the sources from which we learn this ancient philosophy.

Stoics have inspired a lot of modern philosophers and we saw their influence in "Antifragile", "12 Rules for Life", and "The Obstacle is the Way". Now it's time to check the undistilled version so we can build our own conclusions.
