The Lasts Werewolf by Glen Duncan.   Will have to put down the Feast of Crows and see if I can knock this book out.

MUST READ.   Starts off kinda slow, but keep at it.  Haven't finished it yet.   But it is the kind of book that you wnat to put down to reflect on and then pick up again to continue reading

The Last WereWolf.

I like books on statistics and human nature.  You would be surprised how often you can predict what people do in certain cases and why.

Let us know what you think about the Ariely books. I've heard him speak a couple times and his work is interesting.

I read a lot of psychology and neuroscience and am interested in the rational and more often irrational ways we think. Recently read Michael Shermer's 'How We Believe' and re-read Antonio D'Amasio's 'Descarte's Error'. Also Tim Wilson's 'Strangers to Ourselves' which is about how much of our behavior is subconcious.
