In an age in which politicians and CEOs sell bad ideas every day, it's fascinating to learn what makes certain ideas attractive, or " sticky." Memorable ideas have simplicity, unexpectedness, concreteness, credibility, emotionality, and a gripping story line. With fascinating examples and compact writing, this audio is partly a technical manual on how to evaluate other people's ideas, partly a lesson on how not to let complexity and abstractness obscure communication. Charles Kahlenberg's comfortable pacing and grasp of the topic make his performance seamless--and so tuned-in to his listeners. He's energetic but not juiced, involved but not too intense.
