The editors chosen for the task were deeply eccentric and complicated men. Baron Esher was the consummate royal confidant who hid his obsession with Eton boys and incestuous relationship with his youngest son behind a persona of charm and discretion. Arthur Benson, an ex-Etonian master and closeted homosexual, struggled to fit in with the blue-blooded clubs and codes of the court while fighting bouts of severe depression. more

Then, when tragedy struck on 9/11, Maureen was bombarded with messages from the spirit world.

  • Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious

    Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious

    Author/Actors/Director/etc.:   Gerd Gigerenzer
    Format:   Hardcover
    Publisher:   Viking Adult (2007, Jul 5th).
    Pages:   288

    An engaging explanation of the science behind Malcolm Gladwell's bestselling Blink Gerd Gigerenzer is one of the researchers of behavioral intuition responsible for the science behind Malcolm Gladwell's bestseller Blink. Gladwell showed us how snap decisions often yield better results than careful analysis. Now, Gigerenzer explains why our intuition is such a powerful decision-making tool. Drawing on a decade of research at the Max Plank Institute, Gigerenzer demonstrates that our gut feelings are actually the result of unconscious mental processes—processes that apply rules of thumb that we've derived from our environment and prior experiences. The value of these unconscious rules lies precisely in their difference from rational analysis—they take into account only the most useful bits of information rather than attempting to evaluate all possible factors. more
