FBI Agents, data scientists at Google, the Marines, and folks at Disney racing against the clock to rewrite and come up with an ending to Frozen are just some of the people who all have the same problems you and I do but have hacked human productivity. Smarter Faster Better: The Secrets of Being Productive in Life and Business is their story and Charles Duhigg explains how we can do the same using SMART goals, Agile methodology, mental models and a few other key innovative approaches.
If Stephen J. Dubner and Steven Levitt (Freakonomics) and Malcolm Gladwell (Blink, The Tipping Point) combined forces, this book would be it. Charles Duhigg presents the latest in cutting edge neuroscience, psychology and behavioral economics through interviews and real world scenarios. If you literally want to be smarter, faster and better than what you currently are then do yourself a favor and please read this book.
“Anyone can become more creative, more focused, better at framing their goals and making wise decisions.” – Charles Duhigg
