  • Our First Revolution: The Remarkable British Upheaval That Inspired America's Founding Fathers (Unabr.)

    Story
    (19)

    The ideals of freedom and individual rights that inspired America's Founding Fathers did not spring from a vacuum. Along with many other defining principles of our national character, they can be traced directly back to one of the most pivotal events in British history: the late-17th-century uprising known as the Glorious Revolution.

    rollcall40 says: "Excellent Recap of a Forgotten Event"
    "Sloppy History"
    Overall

    This is a badly written and disorganized book which reads more like an essay on how much the author doesn't like Catholics with a bit of an attempt to link the events to the future revolution in the US tacked on as an afterthought.

  • How We Decide

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 33 mins)

    Jonah Lehrer arms us with the tools we need to figure out how we decide, drawing on cutting-edge research by Daniel Kahneman, Colin Camerer, and others, as well as the real-world experiences of a wide range of "deciders" - from airplane pilots and hedge fund investors to serial killers and poker players. Lehrer shows how people are taking advantage of the new science to make better television shows, win more football games, and improve military intelligence.

    Sarah says: "Summarizes information from several superior books"
    "Very Solid"
    Overall

    A really good overview of decision-making; from the neurology to the psychology. It gives a really solid review of the major elements and the thinkers and experiments that contributed to its discovery in a compelling and attention holding narrative. A good book, well researched and grounded.
