At the time of the drafting of this post, The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and When to Stick) by Seth Godin has 632 customer reviews on Amazon with an average rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars.

The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth by Alexandra Robbins full of Misleading Psychology about Outsiders
While Alexandra Robbins may be a “Best Selling” author, and she can certainly string her words together, I don’t think she quite reached her goal of explaining Quirk Theory in “The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth.”
Essentially, she spoke to multitudes of high school students, teachers, administrators, and parents in order to explain Quirk Theory and how the things that make members of the “cafeteria fringe” outsiders in high school will make them succeed thereafter.Declassify >
Recently, I had the pleasure of joining the father and son podcasting duo of Paul (Father) and Dave (Son) Maier on their show Diamond Minds. It’s mainly about the two of them catching up and staying in touch, while discussing topics with and without guests coupled with bad jokes and heart warming puns!
Why was I on? Because I was asked! But I wasn’t really asked, it was a suggestion made by Paul on the episode prior to my guest spot on Episode 27 “Secret Agent Man.”Declassify >
