After more than ten years of research and two and a half years of writing, the book “Time Economy and The Human Time Machine” is finally out there. The book provides a unique and new point of view on behavioral economics and life as a whole.
The perspective presented in the book is served with exciting stories on some of the world’s most successful figures and suggests a new way to perceive value in all fields of life – a way that can easily help us all spot preferable opportunities and rip the winnings.
But there is a challenge with this book too. Differently from many other great books in behavioral economics written by Dan Ariely, Daniel Kahneman, or Richard Thaler, this book was not written by a Ph.D., well-known professor, or a Nobel laureate in Economics and that poses a real challenge…
How could you know what is written in the book is true? Is it based on solid research? Is the book really good and worth reading?
In today’s hyper-stressed and super fast environment, putting a few hours in reading is an investment not many of us can do, and when we finally make the effort it better be a good book. Reading a new book that has yet to hit the New York Times bestsellers list, followed by a Hollywood film production, or that at least came into our minds from a few different sources we trust – such as dear friends or influencers we follow – would be a long shot.
In a way, when you consider a new book you are thinking like a VC (Venture Capital) fund: Is the concept worth it? Does the writer have prior well-documented successes? How much capital is requested and will we be able to shift it to success for ourselves and many others?
If we have to think more than a second about whether to buy the book or not, that is already too big an effort for us, especially if it is more than $9.99. But, what if the writer complied with the investor’s favorite request? What if the writer put some “skin” in the game?
When approaching a VC and asking for a $100,000 or $1M, one of their first questions would be “how much did you invest in the company so far?”, “how much were you willing to risk?”
So here is a list of how much I risked so far and how much am I planning to risk further as well as what will I be able to offer to the “right person” – someone that many people can trust and can take a weekend off enjoying the book and tell the world how much the book is worth it and can save us time to figure that out ourselves.
Except for the feedback I got about the book – feedbacks that I am extremely happy for and proud of – I got two more critical feedbacks:
I guessed that he was able to appreciate that I put some “skin” in my game and that it worked.
I hope he is not alone.
In any way, not all of us will count our personal friends. Hence, there is a burning need for a respectful, well-known figure, someone that has a lot to lose by recommending a poor book. So this is a public calling for those people. People with dozens to millions of followers willing to take a weekend off, get the book, and freely share with the world their thoughts.
If they dislike the book, I would thank them as they will save me and others time and effort, and will push me back to writing. But if it rocks then many of us will be able to take a risk-free decision and try it ourselves!
