In The Democracy Fix: How to Win the Fight for Fair Rules, Fair Courts, and Fair Elections, the former special assistant for legislative affairs to President Clinton and president of the American Constitution Society shows how the left can undo the right’s damage and take the country back. Fredrickson, who has had a front-row seat on the political drama in DC for decades while working to shape progressive policies, argues that it’s time for progressives to focus on winning.
Matt Wallaert @ The Seattle Chamber of Commerce
Deciding what to create at modern companies often looks like an episode of Mad Men: people throw ideas around until one sounds sexy enough to execute and then they scale it to everyone. The result? Companies overspend on marketing to drive engagement with products and services that people don’t want and won’t help them be happier and healthier. In Start at the End: How to Build Products that Create Change, Nudge meets Hooked in a practical approach to designing products and services that change behavior, from what we buy to how we work. Author Matt Wallaert is a behavioral psychologist who has led product design at organizations ranging from startups like Clover Health to industry leaders such as Microsoft. Whether dissecting the success behind Uber’s ridesharing service or Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, he underscores with clarity and humor how this approach can improve the way we work and live.

There she saw first-hand how deeply intertwined Silicon Valley was with the federal government, and always had been, and how shallow the common understanding of the secrets of the Valley’s success actually was. Now, after almost five years of pioneering research, O’Mara has produced the definitive history of Silicon Valley for our time, The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America.
