Michael Lewis
Available in: Print, eBook, eAudio

Acclaimed author Michael Lewis shines a spotlight on two Israeli psychologists-- Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky—whose work formed the basis of behavioral economics which focused on patterns of human irrationality: the ways that our minds consistently fool us. Behavioral economics itself is not a major part of the book.  Instead, Lewis sets about learning more about the psychologists, with the book written as a joint biography of Kahneman and Tversky, and a discussion of their ideas and complicated relationship. 

Carrie Fisher
Available in: Print, eBook, eAudio

Best known for her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars, Carrie Fisher was famously candid about her life in the entertainment business, and particularly her struggles with mental illness and substance abuse.  In her memoir, released just before her death in December, Fisher drew from personal journals written during the 1977 filming of the movie.  At times hilarious and awkward (she recounts her affair with co-star Harrison Ford), Fisher’s writing is smart and sharp-tongued—a final contribution from a funny and spirited woman.

Luvvie Ajayi
Available in: Print, eBook

A compilation of humorous essays written by the enormously popular blogger, I’m Judging You sets out to explore our collective fixations in popular culture while offering help in the form of a modern-day handbook on pop culture etiquette.  Named one of the best books of 2016 by NPR, Luvvie Ajayi provides necessary advice for the digitally connected with her razor-sharp wit and unique perspective.
