    There are some really great ideas in here--it shows how to think about defining moments and make things memorable. I wish there was more in here about the individual life/family context, but there is a lot to learn in here for educators and for businesses. I especially loved the idea o...

    I've read a few of the Heath brother books, including "Switch" and "Made to Stick", and I found the ideas powerful and well presented. You sometimes get worried that when following an author they will start rehashing ideas and the next book won't be as good. I'm happy to report that th...

    I like to read about the faultiness of our thinking and how to respond to manipulation. This book covers a subject that's not far - how to build moments that will positively change people's lives. It is about manipulation but it's wrapped in a bubbly shiny package, it's for the greater...

    While I've loved the Heath brothers' previous books (Made to Stick, Switch, and Decisive), I was only somewhat intrigued by their latest. Reading about "moments" felt less interesting and practical than learning about sticky ideas and making decisions and such, and it took the recommen...

    We can all recount moments that changed our lives. This book is about those moments - what they have in common, how to recognise a moment and, most importantly, how to create one. There are a range of examples of how 'moments' can be used to change things - from teaching, to improving ...

    This book is built around the premise that moments actually matter and are the defining 'moments' in our lives. Kinda true. But kinda... Not. The book does a good job in explaining how we can 'create' moments and or create circumstances in which moments can arise. It does a goo...

    It is self-evident to say that not all books are created equal. That is the intuitive thesis behind the value of peer reviews, which I strongly support. The counter-intuitive conclusion, however, is that not all books are written with the same objectives in mind. I also believe, theref...
