Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die

by Chip Heath & Dan Heath

The instant classic about why some ideas thrive, why others die, and how to improve your idea's chances. In this book, Chip and Dan Heath reveal the anatomy of ideas that stick and explain ways to make ideas stickier, such as applying the human scale principle, using the Velcro Theory of Memory, and creating curiosity gaps.

 

Solution: (Gauss realized that the series 1+2+3+4...+97+98+99+100 could be written as 1+100+2+99+3+98+4+97... or 101 times 50 to get the total 5,050. This trick works for any sum of sequential integers. The general formula is n(n+1)/2, which is the equation for triangular numbers.)
