SCARCITY Why Having Too Little Means So Much

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Robert Petkoff

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Narrating these empowering insights, Robert Petkoff gives us the audio trifecta: crisp diction, flawless phrasing, and exceptional resonance with these dramatic insights. His enthusiasm fits well with this incisive writing, and he knows how to keep long sentences orderly and tease listeners with the authors’ reasoning. Scarcity reduces our bandwidth (mental acuity and intentionality) because it activates unconscious brain forces that make it hard to think clearly and act in our best interest. This negative energy is powerful, but the authors say it can be understood and managed with simple interventions. Instead of staying in a cycle of blaming ourselves for our poor decisions and shortsightedness, they show how to arrange our lives so we can optimize mental capacity and get more of what we want from life.
