Week 23 is over and I’m up to 20 books for the year. Last week I (finally) finished up Made to Stick. Chip and Dan Heath look at the similarities around various stories and ideas to determine what common elements help people remember the message.

There were A LOT of stories and examples throughout the book, which helped a bunch. Some parts were a bit repetitive, but overall it was worth reading if you’re in a teaching/marketing position.
