For the July Cleveland Professional 20/30 book club, we will be discussing "Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decision" by Dan Ariely.

Amazon Review: Why do our headaches persist after we take a one-cent aspirin but disappear when we take a fifty-cent aspirin? Why do we splurge on a lavish meal but cut coupons to save twenty-five cents on a can of soup?

When it comes to making decisions in our lives, we think we're making smart, rational choices. But are we?

In this newly revised and expanded edition of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller, Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. From drinking coffee to losing weight, from buying a car to choosing a romantic partner, we consistently overpay, underestimate, and procrastinate. Yet these misguided behaviors are neither random nor senseless. They're systematic and predictable—making us predictably irrational.


 Please join us to discuss the book on July 16th at Griffin Cider House. I will be there a few minutes early and will place the book on a table upstairs for recognition. Contact sarah@cleveland2030.org with questions.

For the April Cleveland Professional 20/30 book club, we will be discussing Cal Newport's   "Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World"

Amazon Review: 
 "A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today bestseller
"Newport is making a bid to be the Marie Kondo of technology: someone with an actual plan for helping you realize the digital pursuits that do, and don't, bring value to your life."--Ezra Klein, Vox
Minimalism is the art of knowing how much is just enough. Digital minimalism applies this idea to our personal technology. It's the key to living a focused life in an increasingly noisy world.
In this timely and enlightening book, the bestselling author of Deep Work introduces a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless lives."

Please join us to discuss the book on April 9th at Griffin Cider House. I will be there a few minutes early and will place the book on the table upstairs for recognition. Contact sarah@cleveland2030.org with questions.
