Ok thank you I will give it a shot.

Gladwell was here last week to speak, I'm kind of bummed I missed him. I did get to meet Spike Lee though...that was an experience.

Is that by David Faber? I saw his House of Cards special on CNBC a few months ago. It was excellent.

"The Political Brain is a ground-breaking investigation into the role of emotion in determining the political life of the nation by Drew Westen, professor of psychology and psychiatry at Emory University. Westen shows how politicians can capture the hearts and minds of the electorate through examples of what candidates have said—or could have said—in debates, speeches, and ads.

The Political Brain shows how a different view of the mind and brain leads to a different way of talking with voters about issues that have tied the tongues of Democrats for much of forty years—such as abortion, guns, taxes, and race. You can’t change the structure of the brain. But you can change the way you appeal to it."
I love how all these deep thinkers bend over backwards to try to explain to the unwashed masses why vacuuming an unborn baby out of a woman's cooch is okay. Maybe the reason Democratic tongues have been tied is that abortion is wrong. I guess if we could just reach their level we would get it.

Unfortunately, the more the "wrong" thing is done today, the more "right" it becomes----just ask our moral leaders...............in Hollywood

Re: What Are You Reading?

going non political here, I've read the first 5 Carlos Castaneda books over the last couple months including:

The Teachings of don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge
A Separate Reality: Further Conversations with don Juan
Journey to Ixtlan: The Lessons of don Juan
Tales of Power
The Second Ring of Power
The Eagle's Gift

I just started The Eagle's Gift yesterday. I also have a copy of "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" that I was asked to read and try to explain the last chapter.

I've checked out some of Castaneda's Tensegrity stuff, and it seems a little gay to me, but his books are very interesting and entertaining if you get past his aloof attitude in the books, which can be very unnerving.

Anyone else read this stuff?

Re: What Are You Reading?

Reading a good book right now: A New Earth/Eckhart Tolle

For anyone interested in a semi-practical guide to Zen Buddhism, it's a great read. Apparently it's #2 in a series, with The Power of Now preceeding it. I haven't read that one yet, but it'll probably be next.

Zen Buddhism, eh? I'm still trying to figure out what the dog says when he barks.

Re: What Are You Reading?

Phenomenal article about the future of the books from a career publisher. A little long, but you're a group of readers so I'm sure you have the attention span to handle it.

Good read. As much as I love emerging technologies, such as a Kindle, or Kindle like tools...nothing compares to curling up with a good book in my opinion.
