Why do three out of four professional football players go bankrupt? How can illiterate jungle dwellers pass a test that tricks Harvard philosophers? And why do billionaires work so hard - only to give their hard-earned money away? When it comes to making decisions, the classic view is that humans are eminently rational. But growing evidence suggests instead that our choices are often irrational, biased, and occasionally even moronic. Which view is right - or is there another possibility? In this animated tour of the inner workings of the mind, psychologist Douglas T. Kenrick and business professor Vladas Griskevicius challenge the prevailing views of decision making, and present a new alternative grounded in evolutionary science. By connecting our modern behaviors to their ancestral roots, they reveal that underneath our seemingly foolish tendencies is an exceptionally wise system of decision making. From investing money to choosing a job, from buying a car to choosing a romantic partner, our choices are driven by deep-seated evolutionary goals. Because each of us has multiple evolutionary goals, though, new research reveals something radical - there’s more than one "you" making decisions. Although it feels as if there is just one single "self" inside your head, your mind actually contains several different subselves, each one steering you in a different direction when it takes its turn at the controls. The Rational Animal will transform the way you think about decision making. And along the way, you’ll discover the intimate connections between ovulating strippers, Wall Street financiers, testosterone-crazed skateboarders, Steve Jobs, Elvis Presley, and you. 1.

This Element is an excerpt from Your Job Survival Guide: A Manual for Thriving in Change by Gregory Shea and Robert Gunther. Available in print and digital formats.Pilot a kayak, not an ocean liner! In turbulent times, you will capsize, but you can learn to prepare for it, recover gracefully, and ´´paddle´´ from failure to success. Change means trying new things and failing. It means vulnerability, frustration, and suffering. It means getting comfortable hanging upside down in your boat, under the icy water, without oxygen. It means hanging in there and continuing to function even when you look and feel foolish-and then rolling back up. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. J. Myers.

As a behavioral scientist, Professor Nicole Hathaway´s work strips away the foolish mystique that surrounds the human mating dance. When her academic tome is treated as a viral ´´love manual´´ her ecstatic publisher books her to appear all over the U.S. and Europe. Worse yet, her quiet, managed life has been shattered by a series of incompetent assistants. And she´s certain this Lily Smith creature isn´t going to be any less a burden than the last assistant they sent her. Or the one before that. Or before that... Lillian Linden-Smith needs this job. With a relentless TV lawyer and public mob still out for her blood for crimes committed by her ´´American royalty´´ parents, getting out of the country is her only hope for anonymity. If that means cleaning up and presenting an antisocial know-it-all Ph.D. for bookstores, clubs and lectures, fine. Dr. Hathaway may have succeeded in driving away all the others, but not this time. From their first meeting the sparks fly, and each is thinking: She has no idea who she´s dealing with. It´s hate at first sight in this love adventure from the author of Above Temptation, Roller Coaster and dozens of other best-selling, award-winning novels. 1. Language: English.

Emily: Sex & Sensibility is a steamy romance novel by USA Today best-selling Author Sandra Marton. Emily Wilde is smart, well-educated and beautiful. She´s led a privileged life. Now she´s determined to make it on her own in Manhattan. Marco Santini grew up dirt poor in a Sicilian slum. Now he has everything. He´s gorgeous. He´s rich. He´s powerful. And he has all the beautiful women a man could ask for. Then, one rainy night, he sees a woman standing alone on a deserted New York street corner. Emily is clearly in need of help, but she´s not foolish enough to step into Marco´s chauffeured Mercedes. It takes a lot of convincing before she agrees to let him drive her to her apartment. He swears he´s not going to do anything he shouldn´t and he means it - but she´s in his arms before they can stop themselves. Still, it´s only a kiss, just one kiss in a moment torn out of time. That´s what Emily and Marco both think. But Fate has other plans, starting with an unexpected job offer and a business trip to Paris that explodes in a passion so hot it will change everything - everything but the web of lies that traps them both.... 1.

The most beautiful man I´ve ever seen is the same one who can ruin everything. The first time I lay eyes on Callan Walker, I know he´ll be trouble. With his smug grin, hot Aussie accent, and thousand-dollar shoes, he´s just the kind of rich guy who always gets what he wants. And he wants two things: a night of sin, and my cooperation as he outmaneuvers his powerful mother to take control of his uncle´s estate. I can´t afford either one. I´m the only thing standing between my little sister and the foster care system. He may have money and charm on his side, but I have something even more powerful - pure desperation. This temp job at his mother´s company can become a full time job for me. It has to. But when Callan´s eyes rake over my body, sometimes I forget my obligations. His piercing gaze finds the fun, optimistic girl I used to be and not the tired person I´ve become. And it works - if only for a moment. Our night together was a mistake. I can´t afford to get sucked into his high-powered family´s treachery. But the closer I get to Callan, the more layers I find beneath those expensive clothes. Though I can´t forget this is temporary. He´s temporary. I have too much to lose. Too bad my foolish heart didn´t get the memo.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emma Wilder, Shane East.
