Sleights Of Mind from the Author: Sandra Blakeslee. What can magic tell us about ourselves and our daily lives? If you subtly change the subject during an uncomfortable conversation, did you know you're using attentional 'misdirection', a core technique of magic? And if you've ever bought an expensive item you'd sworn never to buy, you were probably unaware that the salesperson was, like an accomplished magician, a master at creating the 'illusion of choice'. Leading neuroscientists Stephen Macknik and Susana Martinez-Conde meet with magicians from all over the world to explain how the magician's art sheds light on consciousness, memory, attention, and belief. As the founders of the new discipline of NeuroMagic, they combine cutting-edge scientific research with startling insights into the tricks of the magic trade. By understanding how magic manipulates the processes in our brains, we can better understand how we work - in fields from law and education to marketing, health and psychology - for good and for ill.

On The Rez from the Author: Ian Frazier. A great writer's journey of exploration in an American place that is both strange and deeply familiar. In Ian Frazier's bestselling Great Plains, he described meeting a man in New York City named Le War Lance, "an Oglala Sioux Indian from Oglala, South Dakota." In On the Rez, Frazier returns to the plains and focuses on a place at their center-the Pine Ridge Reservation in the prairie and badlands of South Dakota, home of the Oglala Sioux. Frazier drives around "the rez" with Le War Lance and other Oglalas as they tell stories, visit relatives, go to powwows and rodeos and package stores, and try to find parts to fix one or another of their on-the-verge-of-working cars. On the Rez considers Indian ideas of freedom and community and equality that are basic to how we view ourselves. Most of all, he examines the Indian idea of heroism-its suffering and its pulse-quickening, public-spirited glory. On the Rez portrays the survival, through toughness and humor, of a great people whose culture has shaped our American identity.

Widow Basquiat from the Author: Jennifer Clement. Madonna. Andy Warhol. Keith Haring. Fab 5 Freddie. Debbie Harry. Julian Schnabel. Jean-Michel Basquiat's transition from the subways to the chic gallery spaces of Manhattan brought the artist into the company of many of New York's established and aspiring stars. Basquiat's subsequent success and rapis assimilation into the world of stardom coincided with the new ca$h of the eighties that flooded the city, and it soon became apparent that he was unwilling and unable to deal with the tempations and demands that his new fame brought. In 1987, at the tragically young age of twenty-seven, the most successful black visual artist in history died from a heroin overdose. With a simplicity that belies both Basquiat's work and life, Jennifer Clement delivers a tender and poetic exploration of the artist and more specifically, the relationship with his muse, Suzanne. There union follows the path of other singular couples in the history of art, such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock. The result is a distressing, yet deeply moving account of a love that strove to flourish under intense outside pressure. More than a biography, Widow Basquiat is a testimony.his increasing income and spiralling drug taking.
