  1. David,

    Blown away by this interview. Great work.

    I love Dan Pink’s work and his insights into the changing work environment. I have not yet read Drive but it’s in my stack of BTR.

    Predictably Irrational is one of my all-time favorite books. It changed the way I thought about economics.

    Amazingly, I am currently reading Nothing to Envy. I hadn’t heard anything about it when I picked it up and assumed it was an obscure book. I was shocked to see it listed above.

    You continue to surprise me.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. I’ve been a fan of Pink since I saw his TED talk. Ironically, I’ve been a fan of Ariely’s since I saw his TED talk. (I love TED). I’ve added Nothing to Envy to the list but, to be honest, it’s going to be awhile before i get to it. The fun of working, running a new media platform and studying in a doctoral program.
