  • How We Decide

    The first book to use the unexpected discoveries of neuroscience to help us make the best decisions.,Since Plato, philosophers have described the decision-making process as either rational or emotional: we carefully deliberate, or we ???blink??? and go with our gut. But as scientists break open the mind???s black box with the latest tools of neuroscience, they???re discovering that this is not how the mind works. Our best decisions are a finely tuned blend of both feeling and reason???and the precise mix depends on the situation. When buying a house, for example, it???s best to let our unconscious mull over the many variables. But when we???re picking a stock, intuition often leads us astray. The trick is to determine when to use the different parts of the brain, and to do this, we need to think harder (and smarter) about how we think.,Jonah Lehrer arms us with the tools we need, drawing on cutting-edge research as well as the real-world experiences of a wide range of ???deciders??????from airplane pilots and hedge fund investors to serial killers and poker players.,Lehrer shows how people are taking advantage of the new science to make better television shows, win more football games, and improve military intelligence. His goal is to answer two questions that are of interest to just about anyone, from CEOs to firefighters: How does the human mind make decisions? And how can we make those decisions better?

  • Intelligence Reframed

    Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner has been acclaimed as the most influential educational theorist since John Dewey. His ideas about intelligence and creativity – explicated in such bestselling books as , and , (over 200,000 copies in print combined) – have revolutionized our thinking.,In his groundbreaking 1983 book ,, Howard Gardner first introduced the theory of multiple intelligences, which posits that intelligence is more than a single property of the human mind. That theory has become widely accepted as one of the seminal ideas of the twentieth century and continues to attract attention all over the world.,Now in ,, Gardner provides a much-needed report on the theory, its evolution and revisions. He offers practical guidance on the educational uses of the theory and responds to the critiques leveled against him. He also introduces two new intelligences (existential intelligence and naturalist intelligence) and argues that the concept of intelligence should be broadened, but not so absurdly that it includes every human virtue and value. Ultimately, argues Gardner, possessing a basic set of seven or eight intelligences is not only a unique trademark of the human species, but also perhaps even a working definition of the species. Gardner also offers provocative ideas about creativity, leadership, and moral excellence, and speculates about the relationship between multiple intelligences and the world of work in the future.

  • Leading Minds

    “Leading Minds” addresses a crucial and often ignored component of leadership — the mind. What distinguishes the mind of an effective leader, and what is the mentality of his or her followers? Gardner links the study of creativity with the study of leadership to demonstrate the many similarities between traditional creators (artists and scientists) and leaders in business, politics and the military. He argues that the key to leadership is the creation of an arresting story — one that grabs the followers’ attention and inspires them to greater efforts. In portraits of a wide range of leaders — from Oppenheimer to Gandhi — Gardner re-creates each of their stories, shows where each fits in the matrix of “leader archetypes,” and reveals the ways in which they ultimately succeed or fail.”Gardner elaborates a plausible typology of leadership and identifies several core characteristics of leaders….persuasive.” “–New York Times Book Review” “Superb.”–Warren Bennis, “Harvard Business Review”
