The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes--And Why by Amanda Ripley
The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes--And Why

jen in takoma park, October 1, 2008

Everyone should read this book. Ripley does an excellent job of demonstrating how individuals and institutions need to think about "the unthinkable" rather than living in blind fear or naively accepting "conventional wisdom." It's a fascinating read, and it could save lives.

This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession by Daniel J. Levitin
This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession

jen in takoma park, March 13, 2008

this is first time i can remember reading a non-fiction book and being really sad that it was over. i loved this book. i think anyone remotely interested in music or how our brains work will really enjoy it.

i took "cognitive science" in college and thought it was boring and confusing. i think the difference between that class and my appreciation of the subject now is all based on how the material is presented. mr. levitan is a great teacher. this book makes me want to go back to school and study the cognitive science of music, with him as my professor.
