Stumbling On Happiness from the Author: Daniel Gilbert. Bringing to life scientific research in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, philosophy, and behavioral economics, this bestselling book reveals what scientists have discovered about the uniquely human ability to imagine the future, and about our capacity to predict how much we will like it when we get there. • Why are lovers quicker to forgive their partners for infidelity than for leaving dirty dishes in the sink? • Why will sighted people pay more to avoid going blind than blind people will pay to regain their sight? • Why do dining companions insist on ordering different meals instead of getting what they really want? • Why do pigeons seem to have such excellent aim; why can’t we remember one song while listening to another; and why does the line at the grocery store always slow down the moment we join it? In this brilliant, witty, and accessible book, renowned Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert describes the foibles of imagination and illusions of foresight that cause each of us to misconceive our tomorrows and misestimate our satisfactions. With penetrating insight and sparkling prose, Gilbert explains why we seem to know so little about the hearts and minds of the people we are about to become. From the Trade Paperback edition.

New York Originals from the Author: Jamie McDonald. Some of the last classic mom-and-pop businesses in the US are in the Big Apple: despite the fast-moving, ever-changing nature of the City and the recent onslaught of chain stores, many small businesses in New York and its five boroughs have survived and thrived year after year, generation after generation. New York Originals: A Guide to the City's Classic Shops and Mom and Pops is based on the Emmy Award-winning television series of the same name. Both seek out small business gems around the city that have resisted change and held on to their oldworld ways. Now, a unique tour through all five boroughs introduces readers to 75 of these unique shops, restaurants, services, and manufacturers. Many New Yorkers walk by these slices of Old New York every day, unaware of their significance. Examples include: E. Vogel, a shoe factory in Soho so old it made boots for the Union Army; Patsy's, a pizzeria in Harlem whose coalfired oven gives its pizza such a unique flavor that Frank Sinatra once had dozens of the pies flown to his home in California; and Russ and Daughters, an appetizing shop whose owners still use their great-grandfather's time-consuming, labour-intensive recipes

Discipline Punish from the Author: Michel Foucault. In this brilliant work, the most influential philosopher since Sartre suggests that such vaunted reforms as the abolition of torture and the emergence of the modern penitentiary have merely shifted the focus of punishment from the prisoner's body to his soul.
