When to Rob a Bank by Steven D. Levitt
Rate this book
Clear rating
Stephen Levitt's book sharing his latest blogs is as entertaining as Freakenomics and his other books. Like his previous books, I find this book evidence that Levitt's wants to be a Sociologist. I'd encourage him to get another doctorate and switch d ...more

Lura and I listened to the first half of this book a year ago and stopped because Lura didn't like it. When you listen to a book for twenty or so hours together it is understood that we both have to enjoy the book. Then our book club chose the book a ...more
Wild by Cheryl Strayed
"I loved this book!! I couldn't wait to get to it each evening after dinner and home from work. I used to be a walker, sometimes even a long distance walker, and this book was just food for my soul. I needed it, I breathed it in, I lived it along w..." Read more of this review »

Wow, this is a tough book to read. I get how this book had a profound effect on anti-war people, but that's not really why I liked it so much. Buffy St. Marie's song "The Universal Soldier" and Bob Dylan's song "Masters of War" deliver the anti-war ...more

“Our brain accepts what the eyes see and our eye looks for whatever our brain wants.”
Daniel Gilbert, Stumbling on Happiness

Daniel Gilbert
“The things we do when we expect our lives to continue are naturally and properly different than the things we might do if we expected them to end abruptly. We go easy on the lard and tobacco, smile dutifully at yet another of our supervisor's witless jokes, read books like this one when we could be wearing paper hats and eating pistachio macaroons in the bathtub, and we do each of these things in the charitable service of the people we will soon become.”

“If you are like most people, then like most people, you don't know you're like most people.”

“Impact is rewarding. Mattering makes us happy.”
