Lost in Shangri-La is and entertaining view into an untold portion of World War II history. I didn't know of the Philipino Troops that were training to fight the Japanese or the tangential activities partaken for moral and entertainment during a war for nothing less than the future of the free world. This book portrays a time when the world was young and there were unexplored places and virgin stone age aboriginal tribes. It is and entertaining book and loaded with information that provides insight into 20th century exposure of a naive primative culture, the kindness and compassion of the Phillipino people, aviation history with ground to air recovery using glider pick up with a B-25, and humanity in general.

This book details the authors research into human behavior with special regards to marketing and investing. Studies ellucidating the predicatability of human irrationality are reviewed. Just the results are listed and scientific rigor is not detailed, but presumably this is for wider appeal. The populations described are usually college students and not generally applicable to other populations. But the insights are interesting and would be benificial to anyone in marketing, business, or for personal insight into their own behavior. It is worth the time.
