    What You Wish For

    Monday 14th July 2008, 11:24am

    “What’s that coming over the hill, is it a monster?  Is it a monster?”

    The Automatic

    Today’s top five most-wished-for business books on Amazon’s UK site are;

    Nudge (Improving decisions about health, wealth and happiness)

    The Black Swan (The impact of the highly improbable)

    Predictably irrational (The hidden forces that shape our decisions)

    The Shock Doctrine (The rise of disaster capitalism)

    Flat Earth News (an award-winning reporter exposes falsehood, distortion and propaganda in the global news media)

    “Dark and deserted as it was, the night was full of small noises, song and chatter and rustling, telling of the busy little population who were up and about, plying their trades and vocations through the night till sunshine should fall on them at last and send them off to their well-earned repose. The water’s own noises, too, were more apparent than by day, its gurglings and “cloops” more unexpected and near at hand; and constantly they started at what seemed a sudden clear call from an actual articulate voice.”
    The Wind in the Willows
    Ch. 7.

      The RSA is hosting a talk by Richard Thayler this coming Thursday, at 1:30pm. A few copies of Nudge may go off wish-lists (into the ‘bought’ list) that day :-)
