Making Ideas Happen: Overcoming the Obstacles Betw&hellip by Scott Belsky

This is a good book for getting better at getting things done. Personally I find the idea part to stretch the concept slightly. I have tried several times to use the Action Method to help me get ideas to happen but cannot say that I have felt a massive change. But it helps you with tasks and moving forward.
Perhaps it should have been named Making productivity happen. Not so easy sold that one...
I found the book to be too long and slightly repepetive. This could have been told on a lot less pages without anything important gone missing.
Cognitive Surplus: Creativity and Generosity in a &hellip by Clay Shirky

Clay Shirky has a unique ability to write with a highly entertaining pen about a rather complex matter. Namely that massive change of how we use and produce media. His anecdotes are surprising but important. His knowledge wast (spanning hundreds of years).
This is one book that will help you get closer to an understanding of the massive changes that are happening right now. Yes technology opened the door, but it is our passive brains that has been put in "activate" mode that is the true massive change.
If possible, I think it was even better than his previous, Here Comes Everybody.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little too much, 23 Feb 2010
If you like statistics, this book is better than 3 stars. But if you're looking for a good narrative about the statistics that is the foundation for this book, you might feel that the numbers are a bit too much. I did at least. There are plentiful of resources on the net with numbers telling us about social networks and so on. I would like to have seen more in depth explanations on our behaviour.
Perhaps good to use extracts from this one in academia, but not enough good content for a curious but not so academic mind.
