How to Decide - 006
Decision making is easily one of my favorite topics to learn about. After all, outcomes are just a combination of decision making and luck, and you can only control the decisions you make. Becoming better at decision making has made me a much better entrepreneur and investor. The book I'm talking about in this episode is Annie Duke's How to Decide. It is all about having a framework for decision making. Those who have gone through formal business schooling will recognize the framework she teaches as a simplified version of Expected Value (EV).

The Psychology of Money - 005
If you haven't heard of the book The Psychology of Money by Morgan Housel, you need to pick it up. This book immediately became my go to recommendation for personal finance books. Considering that I've read and recommended several dozen great ones on the subject, that is quite the shift for me. But this book deserves that kind of praise. The premise behind the book (and my discussion of it in this episode) is that being successful with money has very little to do with how smart you are, and a lot to do with how you behave.

Two Histories of Idaho - 004
I've lived in Idaho virtually my entire life, but I'd never really learned much about its history until I read two books: Idaho - A Bicentennial History, and Idaho's Place. These two books, recommended by our State Historian, taught me a lot about the state I've called home since I was two years old! Idaho is one of the crazy success stories of the last few decades, seeing unrivaled growth and development while still maintaining it's incredible natural beauty. Whether you live here or not, there is something to be learned from the story of the gem state.
