    Story
    (1226)

    In a series of illuminating, often surprising experiments, MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking research, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities.

    Stephen says: "Well researched, well written, & well read"
    "Predictably Irrational"
    Overall

    Very interesting research based observations of how people make economic decisions. Definately worth the read.

    Story
    (8517)

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    Brock says: "Grisham at his best (again)"

    Story
    What did you love best about Sycamore Row?

    The story is OK: good but not great. However, this is one of the best read audiobooks I have listened to.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Any trial story is suspensful and this is a trial story with a twist.


    What does Michael Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The reading is just superb. He richly portrays all of the books different characters.
