Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds
Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds

Review: You can judge this book by its title. It is a classic effort detailing the follies of mass psychology. The author is successful in showing how a crowd of rational thinking people act completely irrationally as trends become popular and people are psyched to believe that they are the gospels of truth. The real life events in this book are the basis for the study of group dynamics and psychology. It is written in great detail, so for those who love studying and learning from history, this is great... Read more

Take Control of Your Life with Self-Help Techniques from EMDR Therapy
Take Control of Your Life with Self-Help Techniques from EMDR Therapy

Review: If you need to be convinced that your past is controlling your daily life then this is a great read with literally 300 pages of various cases where EMDR has healed past memories so the client can now live free from there present condition. However, it will be disappointing if you are looking to know how to do EMDR by reading the book. What is good though, is the detailed description of the techniques used to get in touch with your past. If you wondered if EMDR was an effective form of therapy th... Read more

A Guide for Students of the Social and Behavioral Sciences

Review: This book is well organized, gives lots of practical and concrete tips, and is very easy to read (almost too easy). When I got it, I was a little shocked how simply it was written. However, now that I'm referring to it often, I am grateful for its simplicity. Read more

Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking
Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking

Review: Burkeman takes the reader easily and satisfyingly through his thoughts about how to live a good life, and indeed about whether or not we have a 'self'. He is up front about his reactions to his ideas, and self deprecating about his very human inability to live with his conclusions. This is an enjoyable and believable account, and as a result of reading the book I subscribe to his blog. Read more

Speculations on the Evolution of Human Intelligence
Speculations on the Evolution of Human Intelligence

Review: The book is a bit dated of course as it was written in the 1970's, but the material and the presentation appeared to be timeless. I had never read much by Dr. Sagan prior to reading this and this was a great introduction to his clear thinking and writing style. His theories on anthropology will remain current but it was humorous to read of new computer games, such as Pong and Space Wars. Read more

50 Amazing Science Projects You Can Perform on Your Kid

Review: It's alright. There isn't that many cool "expirements" you can do that you never really knew to begin with. My son is 1 now and I only actually tried about 10 of the expirements mentioned. This is more of a gift you would get for a new dad who doesn't know anything about babies. He would think this is the most amazing book ever, and you would seem like the coolest friend! Read more
