Books of the month

  • Science: A History in 100 Experiments – John and Mary Gribbin
    A compelling brief history of the key scientific experiments that helped science progress: from Archimedes’s Eureka to the detection of gravitational waves, passing through x-rays, DNA, nuclear energy and much more.
  • Predictably Irrational – Dan Ariely
    Amusing anecdotes and deep observations about why human behavior, especially for economic decisions, is far from being rational. The good side is that our irrational choices are predictable and systematic, allowing us to develop better decision strategies and avoid recurring mistakes.
