Great! But the difference in loudness between you two had me reaching for the volume control each time the person talking changed.

Not sure how much effort you want to go to with this, but a simple 'compressor' effect in an audio program would be able to fix this somewhat.

Cheers,

Way to go, each video has improved significantly. I am happy to see that. All of them are fantastic thinkers.

Kaufman reading logic is quite good, specially Selective attention (pre-reading questions/expectations).
Just like a book triggers an idea while you read and makes impact in your thinking. Definitely makes the difference between

Ben, could you please give another brief hint on how you read/learn when taking notes? I've been following Cal Newport's scheme so far and my own.

On any kind of readings I tend to look for a general topic or a recommendation from someone I admire. Kaufman's way may be intense; looking up too specific, or at least it sound to me like that.

Reading science as Kaufman says is a good point I've never heard from a business person, actually very cleaver. As I'm into science I wonder if I should read business literature (??)

keep up the good work

sorry, I meant "clever" not "cleaver"

Do you guys recommend any books for science, psychology, and history? I am reading the PMBA list, and I've really enjoyed that selection so far. For me, it is really difficult to select the right books to read. I am a student of philosophy and finance/economics, so I can understand fairly complex ideas if the all the terms are defined. As a result, I don't like dumbed-down books on any subject, but I find it difficult to select books somewhere in between those written for lay people and those written for professionals in a given field. I also don't like superfluous writers, and I find it difficult to select books that present ideas concisely.

Sexuality is a big issue, but there are others - how much you commit to a relationship, to social obligation, to honesty and being honest with yourself.

I am happy to see that. All of them are fantastic thinkers.
