Would you try another book from IntroBooks and/or Andrea Giordani?

If you are looking for an introduction to the topic of neuroeconomics (the fundamentals), this is not it. I have a solid background in cognitive psychology and neuroscience and I found it difficult to follow some of the author's points. I also found the narration off-putting. Between the narrator's odd British accent and O ver E nun ci ation, this is not an easy listening experience.

One of the most significant books ever written by a head of State, the Meditations are a collection of philosophical thoughts by the Emperor Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180 ce). Covering issues such as duty, forgiveness, brotherhood, strength in adversity and the best way to approach life and death, the Meditations have inspired thinkers, poets and politicians since their first publication more than 500 years ago. Today, the book stands as one of the great guides and companions - a cornerstone of Western thought.

Let's face it: We all know people who are irrational. No matter how hard you try to reason with them, it never works. So what's the solution? How do you talk to someone who's out of control? What can you do with a boss who bullies, a spouse who yells, or a friend who frequently bursts into tears? In his book Just Listen, Mark Goulston shared his best-selling formula for getting through to the resistant people in your life. Now he brings his communication magic to the most difficult group of all - the downright irrational.
