The lean entrepreneurship movement has captivated Silicon Valley and entrepreneurs across the country. It provided an agile framework to develop the right product solution for a given target market and is now used by almost every fledgling company to do just that. The next challenge is growth - to achieve the financial returns and, more importantly, the impact they dreamed of when starting off on their adventure. Why do some companies realize the VC´s goal of a 10x return on investment while others flounder? What differentiates the companies that become part of the fabric of our lives and remain responsive no matter how big they get from those that quickly fade? To find out, Ammirati looks at 20 different companies in pairs who have achieved product-market fit at about the same point in history, with the same general target customer - one of which has gone on to achieve real scale while the other languished. As his research reveals, just a handful of choices - among them, who to partner with, how to finance growth, and how to use data - make all the difference in the world. With such intriguing examples as LinkedIn vs. Spoke, Facebook vs. Friendster, and McDonald´s vs. White Castle, Ammirati shows the secret of ´´the science of growth´´ and how to cultivate it in any organization.

There is a tragic epidemic going on around us - a dreadful disconnect between human beings and the real world we live in. We are paying frightfully little attention to our real-world surroundings. We are addicted to digital devices. It´s time for us to swallow a healthy dose of reality and find balance between our digital lives and our flesh-and-blood relationships. Steve Krupnik´s satirical analysis of ´´digital junkies´´ makes a clear case that technology is advancing much more rapidly than its users. He turns his keen eye to smart phones, social media, video games, and texting, humorously revealing their negative impact on society. Listeners may disagree with his perspective, but it is hard to deny that digital devices are changing our lives in ways that may not be in our best interest. 1. Language: English.

An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise. You believe you are a rational, logical being who sees the world as it really is, but journalist David McRaney is here to tell you that you´re as deluded as the rest of us. But that´s OK - delusions keep us sane. You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self-delusion. It´s like a psychology class, with all the boring parts taken out, and with no homework.Based on the popular blog of the same name, You Are Not So Smart collects more than 46 of the lies we tell ourselves everyday, including: Dunbar´s Number - Humans evolved to live in bands of roughly 150 individuals, the brain cannot handle more than that number. If you have more than 150 Facebook friends, they are surely not all real friends. Hindsight bias - When we learn something new, we reassure ourselves that we knew it all along. Confirmation bias - Our brains resist new ideas, instead paying attention only to findings that reinforce our preconceived notions. Brand loyalty - We reach for the same brand not because we trust its quality but because we want to reassure ourselves that we made a smart choice the last time we bought it. 1. Language: English.

An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise, based on the popular blog of the same name. Whether you´re deciding which smartphone to purchase or which politician to believe, you think you are a rational being whose every decision is based on cool, detached logic. But here´s the truth: You are not so smart. You´re just as deluded as the rest of us-but that´s okay, because being deluded is part of being human. Growing out of David McRaney´s popular blog, You Are Not So Smart reveals that every decision we make, every thought we contemplate, and every emotion we feel comes with a story we tell ourselves to explain them. But often these stories aren´t true. Each short chapter-covering topics such as Learned Helplessness, Selling Out, and the Illusion of Transparency-is like a psychology course with all the boring parts taken out. Bringing together popular science and psychology with humor and wit, You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of our irrational, thoroughly human behavior.
