4.0 out of 5 stars An inspiring read, Sept. 21 2012
Joseph Campbell's famous book on the archetypal hero's journey as it appears across world mythologies has inspired many contemporary writers and artists, notably George Lucas for his creation of Star Wars. It is sometimes heavy going and it's not a light read; but it is enormously satisfying and it will color the way you look at everything you read, every movie you watch, every work of art you experience.
Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, a&hellip by Richard H. Thaler
Although there are many interesting ideas in Nudge, the book is very theoretical and academic, with few real-life applications - except as they pertain to American social policy recommendations. Not really a general interest book.

I am always on the lookout for helpful tips and ideas, but I was disappointed when I read this book. I had been exposed to most of the ideas elsewhere and did not feel that The Power of Less brought me anything I did not already know. I highly recommend reading David Allen's "Getting Things Done" instead - or re-reading it if it's been a while.
