Book Club

Come join us for some interesting discussions on April 20, 2014 at the Secular Hub at 2:00 pm.  Our topics of discussion will include the following books: 

Non-fiction

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman in which he explains how our minds work with two systems:  System1 and System2, and the problems and benefits this entails.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_7?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=thinking%20fast%20and%20slow&sprefix=thinkin%2Caps%2C353&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Athinking%20fast%20and%20slow

Fiction

Brilliance by Marcus Sakey a mystery in which we follow Nick Cooper, a “brilliant”, as he tries to catch a “brilliant” bent on starting a civil war.

You do not have to read the books to an effective part of the discussion.  Hope to see you there!

    Kahneman - There are so many poorly sourced social psych books around - they are too popular. But THIS ain't one of them!

      A Wrinkle in Time? Wow. Read that 50 years ago. That would have been worth driving to Denver for.

    My compliments on your good taste in behavioral economics books by Kahneman. Should I be in town -- and not excessively traumatized by the prospect, I hope to overcome my aversion to driving down to Denver to hear the discussion.
