    Story

    This reissue of Thomas Sowell’s classic study of decision making, which includes a preface by the author, updates his seminal work in the context of The Vision of the Anointed. Sowell, one of America’s most celebrated public intellectuals, describes in concrete detail how knowledge is shared and disseminated throughout modern society. He warns that society suffers from an ever-widening gap between firsthand knowledge and decision making—a gap that threatens not only our economic and political efficiency but our very freedom.

    Doug says: "Thomas Sowell's Greatest Work"
    "Great as ever!!!"

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    Thomas Sowell as good as ever presents the issues of contamporary society in a clear and not too biased way. We all need to be grateful that a member of a minority has the courage to speak things, which said by a member of any majority would be considered 'politically incorrect'. Of course, mr. Sowell believes in a free market much more than it would be optimal, but is would be really hard to argue with his hypothesies, I couldn't do it:)


    If you could give Knowledge and Decisions a new subtitle, what would it be?

    How institutions work mainly to benefit themselves rather than to fill their goals

    Story
    (67)

    When it comes to sex, common wisdom holds that men roam while women crave closeness and commitment. But in this provocative, headline-making book, Daniel Bergner turns everything we thought we knew about women's arousal and desire inside out. Drawing on extensive research and interviews with renowned behavioral scientists, sexologists, psychologists, and everyday women, he forces us to reconsider long-held notions about female sexuality.

    "Compilation of anegdotes, no evidence presented"

    Story
    What disappointed you about What Do Women Want??

    The author discounts evolutionary biology and even FMRI scan studies, but instead presents only anegdotes, interviews and one scientifical study which has a much more plausable explanation (given in the book but only towards the end). The book proves only 2 things, proven before by many studies:1. That people who marry early are more dissatisfied with relationships (as heroines of all his anegdotes did)2. Evolution has equipped women with mechanism that allowes them to prevent damage to their reproductive organs during intercourse.This is it, and the book is only about blowing this out of proportion to prove author's agenda, which is allot more political than scientific


    What aspect of Charles Pasternak’s performance would you have changed?

    Charles's intonation could be more active during his reading
