The way we read books says a lot about our intelligence!
However, we seem to be losing the art of reading as we have found many alternatives for it. Alisha explains how reading expands the boundaries of our thinking, ignites our imagination and develops our personality.

The fact is everyone express their feeling and gain popularity through social media, even they are benefited by using social media, mobile and new technological devices still no one feel to give A SIMPLE THANKS TO the platform. This is not the sign of good people.
She could not think in This way after being a good reader and writer.and she preaches that reading book can change the way of readers thinking.
NO DOUBT Book READING IS ONE OF THE BEST HABIT ONE CAN HAVE, BUT AS READER WE SHOULD ALSO NOT FORGET AND DIMINSH THE VALUE OF SOCIAL MEDIA.
AND ONE MORE THING FOR THE SPEAKER MADAM " NOT EVERY ONE HAS THE SAME FEELING TO SEE A HANDSOME MAN/ BEAUTIFUL WOMAN GOING DOWN THE STREET."
Anyway THANKS U ARE A GOOD PERSON AND SPEAKER👍👍👍

How you define Stephen Duneier depends on how you came to know him. Some define him as an expert institutional investor, while others know him as a large scale installation artist, avid outdoorsman, professor, decision strategist, coach, business leader, mindfulness extremist, author, speaker, daredevil or Guinness world record holder. In his talk, Stephen explains that what truly defines him aren't titles, but an approach to decision making that transformed him from someone who struggled with simple tasks to a guy who is continuously achieving even his most ambitious dreams.

For thirty years, he has applied cognitive science to investing, business and life. The result has been the turnaround of numerous institutional businesses, career best returns for managers who have adopted his methods, the development of a $1.25 billion dollar hedge fund and a rapidly shrinking bucket list.
Mr. Duneier teaches graduate courses on Decision Analysis in UCSB’s College of Engineering. His book, AlphaBrain is due for release in early 2017 from Wiley & Sons.
Through Bija Advisors, he helps business leaders improve performance by applying proven, proprietary decision-making methods to their own processes.
His artwork has been featured around the world and is represented by the Sullivan Goss Gallery. As Commissioner of the League of Professional Educators, Duneier is using cognitive science to alter the landscape of American education. He is the former Head of Currency Option Trading at Bank of America and Emerging Markets at AIG International.
