Calificación de Goodreads
In this satirical debut novel, a young black man accidentally impresses a CEO while serving his Starbucks order, leading to a shot at stardom as the lone black salesman at a wildly successful and mysterious startup. But he soon learns that appearances are deceiving, and nothing is as it seems. A must-read for fans of Sorry to Bother You and Wolf of Wall Street.

This is one of my favorite novels of the last few years. It’s rollicking fun satire of startup culture and racial politics that — no joke — doubles as a sales guide. #DanielPink #BlackBuck #MateoAskaripour #BookRecommendation      fuente

Los chicos de la Nickel book cover
Los chicos de la Nickel
A Novel
Colson Whitehead - 2019-07-16
Calificación de Goodreads
«No soy negro, soy hombre.» Elwood Curtis se toma muy en serio las palabras de Martin Luther King y, al igual que él, sueña con hacer de este mundo un lugar más justo. Tras ser abandonado por sus padres y criado por su querida pero estricta abuela, este adolescente se ha convertido en un chico prometedor que ve en los estudios su única salida. Pero de poco sirve ser un buen estudiante en la Academia Nickel. Cuando, a causa de un malentendido, le encierran en este reformatorio, Elwood no tarda en darse cuenta de ello. La Academia Nickel se vanagloria de convertir a sus internos en «hombres hechos y derechos» gracias a la instrucción «física, intelectual y moral» necesaria, pero este lugar oculta un brutal secreto y una realidad corrupta, respaldada por muchos y obviada por todos. El adolescente Elwood intentará sobrellevarlo con la ayuda de su buen amigo Turner, que piensa que la única forma de sobrevivir en la Nickel es emular la crueldad y el cinismo de sus opresores. Elwood, en cambio, prefiere seguir las enseñanzas del doctor King: «Enviadnos a la cárcel, y os querremos igual». El escepticismo de uno y el idealismo de otro les llevarán a tomar una decisión que tendrá inevitables repercusiones en su futuro. Basada en el estremecedor caso real de un reformatorio de Florida que estuvo en funcionamiento durante más de un siglo y destrozó la vida de miles de niños, Los chicos de la Nickel es una novela devastadora que, a caballo entre el momento actual y el del final de la segregación racial estadounidense, en los años sesenta, muestra la genialidad de un escritor en la cima de su carrera.

Halfway through this novel, I thought to myself, “My grandchildren will be reading this book. That’s how good it is and at least how long it will endure." #DanielPink #ColsonWhitehead #TheNickelBoys #BookRecommendation @colsonwhitehead      fuente

Discover the hidden beauty and logic of the world through math in How Not to Be Wrong by Jordan Ellenberg. Math isn't just a dull set of rules, but a tool that touches everything we do.

Are you ready to multiply your common sense?
Daniel Pink
I’m way late to this book, which came out in 2014. But it’s a gem – highly recommended summer reading, especially for anyone in high school or college. @JSEllenberg is a mathematician who can write. #DanielPink #JordanEllenberg #HowNotToBeWrong #Mathematician      fuente

This week’s book recommendation is a propulsive and dystopian thriller from the one and only @Danchaon. A compelling summer read #DanielPink #DanChaon #BookRecommendation      fuente
Biased book cover
Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do
Jennifer L. Eberhardt - 2019-03-26
Calificación de Goodreads
Learn about the subtle and dramatic effects of implicit racial bias in Biased, a personal examination of one of the most powerful cultural issues of our time. Through both scientific research and personal experience, one of the leading experts on unconscious racial bias explores how ingrained stereotypes can infect our visual perception, attention, memory, and behavior, leading to disparities in housing, education, employment, and the criminal justice system. With practical suggestions for reform and interviews with law enforcement professionals, Biased offers an insightful look into the pervasive nature of racial bias in modern society, and how we can all play a role in solving this human problem.
Daniel Pink
Today’s recommendation is a staggering book that examines the science of “us and them” — particularly when it comes to race. Implicit bias is pernicious, but it’s not inevitable. Eberhardt shows what everyone can do to reduce bias, to widen the circle of who constitutes “us.”      fuente

Escasez. Por Qué Tener Poco Significa Tanto? book cover
Escasez. Por Qué Tener Poco Significa Tanto?
Sendhil Mullainathan - 2013-09-03
Calificación de Goodreads
Academic essay that takes shortage as a explanatory model to show the correlation between decision making and the administration of economic and time resources when solving problems effectively. For example, they find a strong correlation between poverty and failure with the affirmation that failure causes poverty. The behavioral economist, Sendhil Mullainathan and cognitive psychologist, Eldar Shafir, offer daily life examples in order to understand how shortage can be good, allowing to momentously focus, while at the same time it can be harmful because more important matters can be left untreated. Shortage grits the mind, proroguing a tunnel effect that is difficult to break out of, but not impossible to avoid.
Daniel Pink
This is one of the most underrated books of the last 10 years. It profoundly changed my thinking about thinking. #DanielPInk #Scarcity #EldarShafir #BookRecommendation      fuente

Daniel Pink
Life is full of frustration. (That might be its default setting.) This book helped me contend with that reality. Now, I always try to reframe frustration not as a problem, but as a test of my resilience and creativity. Just like the Stoics. #DanielPink #TheStoicChallenge      fuente

Organízate con eficacia book cover
Organízate con eficacia
David Allen - 2002-12-31 (publicado por primera vez en 2001)
Calificación de Goodreads
Este libro tiene un objetivo demostrar que existe un sistema de organización del trabajo que nos permite liberar la mente de las tensiones que inhiben nuestra creatividad, y que nos hace más eficaces en todos los aspectos de la vida. David Allen sostiene que nuestra mente tiene una capacidad limitada para almacenar información y propone una serie de fórmulas prácticas para eliminar las tensiones e incrementar nuestra capacidad de trabajo y nuestro rendimiento. Organízate con eficacia se fundamenta en unas sencillas normas básicas de organización del tiempo, como por ejemplo la necesidad de determinar cuál es el siguiente paso a dar en cada uno de nuestros proyectos, o la regla de los dos minutos (si surge una tarea pendiente y se puede hacer en menos de dos minutos, debe hacerse inmediatamente). El sistema propuesto por Allen soluciona ansiedades y desconciertos, y nos permite transformar nuestro modo de trabajar y la manera de percibir nuestros retos cotidianos.
Daniel Pink
This book had a bigger effect on my day-to-day practices and productivity than any book I've ever read. (It's also why I, like every GTD aficionado, treasure my label-making machine.) #DanielPink #DavidAllen #GettingThingsDone      fuente
