The Upside Of Irrationality
by Dan Ariely
Behavioral economist Dan Ariely will explore the many ways in which our behavior often leads us astray in terms of our romantic relationships, our experiences in the workplace, and our temptations to cheat. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking analysis and new research into our decisionmaking processes, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities. In each chapter, Dan will examine data from original experiments to draw invaluable conclusions about how-and why-we behave the way we do in these areas of our lives. In an extension of his conclusions, Dan will also reflect on ways to make ourselves and our society better.

Among the topics Dan explores are:

What we think will make us happy and what really makes us happy;

How we learn to love the ones we are with;

Why online dating doesn′t work, and how we can improve on it;

Why learning more about people make us like them less;

Why large bonuses can make CEOs less productive;

How to really motivate people at work;

Why bad directions can help us;

How we fall in love with our ideas;

How we are motivated by revenge; and

What motivates us to cheat.

Drawing on the same experimental methods that made Predictably Irrational such a hit, Dan will emphasize the important role that irrationality plays in our day-to-day decisionmaking-not just in our financial marketplace, but in the most personal aspects of our lives.

The Partner
by John Grisham
They watched Danilo Silva for days before they finally grabbed him. He was living alone, a quiet life on a shady street in a small town in Brazil; a simple life in a modest home, certainly not one of luxury. Certainly no evidence of the fortune they thought he had stolen. He was much thinner and his face had been altered. He spoke a different language, and spoke it very well.

But Danilo had a past with many chapters. Four years earlier, he had been Patrick Lanigan, a young partner in a prominent Biloxi law firm. He had a pretty wife, a new daughter, and a bright future. Then one cold winter night, Patrick was trapped in a burning car and died a horrible death. When he was buried his casket held nothing more than his ashes.

From a short distance away, Patrick watched his own burial. Then he fled. Six weeks later, a fortune was stolen from his ex-law firm's offshore account. And Patrick fled some more. But they found him.

Worst Case
by James Patterson
The number one bestselling new instalment in the Detective Michael Bennett series.

The son of one of New York`s wealthiest families is snatched off the street and held hostage. His parents can't save him, because this kidnapper isn't demanding money. Instead, he quizzes his prisoner on the price others pay for his life of luxury. In this exam, wrong answers are fatal. Detective Michael Bennett leads the investigation. With ten kids of his own, he can't begin to understand what could lead someone to target anyone's children. As another student disappears, one powerful family after another uses their leverage and connections to turn up the heat on the mayor, the press, anyone who will listen, to stop this killer. Their reach extends all the way to the FBI, who send their top Abduction Specialist, Agent Emily Parker. Bennett's work life and love life suddenly get even more complicated. Before Bennett has a chance to protest the FBI's intrusion on his case, the mastermind changes his routine. His plan leads up to the most deadly demonstration yet one that could bring cataclysmic devastation to every inch of New York.
