TEMPO is a wonderfully readable exposition of the fundamentals of decision-making filled with insight, wisdom and ironic wit. Venkat leads us to a deeper appreciation of our lives around us through the
development and practice of a new and highly relevant decision-making framework. Ribbonfarm readers will be treated to the same illuminating narrative-analysis style that is so distinctively Venkat.

Information advantage lets you seize important, yet fleeting
opportunities. Occasionally, you find a gem of wisdom and piercing
insight that endures — if you know how to use it well. Venkatesh
Rao’s /Tempo/ is one such treasure: ignore this book at your own

Tempo is a rich and nuanced exploration of the decision making art. It is a book that, despite its conversational style, is wildly ambitious in its challenge of calculative rationality as a useful framework for understanding human behavior. Narrative rationality puts decisions in a completely human context; they are taken by individuals acting as part of a world that is always alive with story, ambiguity, and emotion.

It took 2 decades of meditation, yoga and all sorts of strange experiments to get it, but I
did. Do you avoid going places and doing exciting things because you worry about any alternative people could imagine about you.
It is really essential don’t make webcam shots of yourself, or
take pictures inside mirror.
