You have to do it… you might as well enjoy it No one likes a pushy, smarmy salesman – no one wants to be that guy ... but most of us need to sell to some extent. How else can we get any business? We all have to do it now, whether we're lawyers, accountants or start–ups. But don't despair – there's no need to go on some cringey sales training day.

What disappointed you about How to Be Great at the Stuff You Hate?

There is much more in-depth material available in a more condensed format. By dumbing down and rehashing what's already out there, it makes the style jarring rather than accessible.

This audiobook offers the hidden story behind these and other questions, as economist Tim Harford reveals how supermarkets, airlines, and coffee chains, to name just a few, are vacuuming money from our wallets.

Would you try another book written by Tim Harford or narrated by Cameron Stewart?

Only for microeconomics. The macroeconomic narrative is from too much a right-wing perspective of economics.

Did The Undercover Economist inspire you to do anything?

Make coffee at home instead of buying it at a coffee shop
