It's a new month and a new book. I'm excited to share with you all that I'm reading a very fun book titled, Driving Mr. Albert: A Trip Across America with Einstein's Brain.By Michael Paterniti. 

 

It's a true story about a writer who discovered the pathologist who did the autopsy on Einstein and then literally stole his brain in the name of science so it could be studied. It is light reading,very fun and well written. After an intense summer, I needed something light to make me smile. I highly recommend it. It was a national bestseller in 2000.

 

What are you reading for fun this month?

Share a little about it, please.

 

Happy reading.............. BeWell............ ;-D



BeWell and wishing you only the best ! ..................;-D

Sue Grafton has a new book of her series out, she is now up to W.  I won't get to that one for a bit.  Have a few in between where I am and W.

Hi Rmac, 

 

Well, I read the review.  It does sound like the book is not exactly what I was hoping for.  Oh, well.  I think some people are not precise in what they say, and this leads to going in circles with semantics.  I don't think there is any wisdom in being a psychopath.  I have seen people whose inner compass I questioned make remarkable calls, especially when they gauge other people.  In that sense, they have some perception that I don't have.  I supposed that's what the author meant.  The review mentions the difference between narcissism being a psychopath.  I would have been interested to read something more in depth about that.  I'm not interested in hearing more about serial killers and crimes.  I would like to know what a psychopath is and when one has encountered one to be more able to protect my own interests. I puzzle about the motivations of psychopaths.  If they don't feel human emotion, or conscience, what do they run on?  Do they have no conscience, or a seared conscience?  How do they become that way?  Etc.  I have heard delusional people brag before, and even heard others praise them.  I hope this book doesn't turn out like that.

Quoting MillionDollarBab:

Rmac, you and BeWell just convinced me to buy every one of these books.  Plus, The Wisdom of Psychopaths.  I'm going to tell you what I think soon.

 

PS I'm the last word!  ha ha You have something going on with Split Second Persuasion, I'd say.


If you read that you also need to read Martha Stouts review of the book


 

In Praise of Empty Souls—Can We Learn From Psychopaths?

BY MARTHA STOUT 

It puts a much needed balance on any virtue of being a pschopath.  There is none.

I read the book you mentioned last month, Split-Second Persuasion.  I liked it a lot, but alas, I don’t think I learned how to persuade anyone all that quickly.  Very interesting book though. 

 

I also read the next two in the series I mentioned last month.  Sue Grafton’s “C Is For Corpse,” and “D Is For Deadbeat.”  They are just fun.  They tend to grab you and not let you go until you finish them.  I don’t recommend starting one late in the evening.
