Why do our headaches persist after taking a one-cent aspirin but disappear when we take a 50-cent aspirin? Why does recalling the Ten Commandments reduce our tendency to lie, even when we couldn't possibly be caught? Why do we splurge on a lavish meal but cut coupons to save twenty-five cents on a can of soup? Why do we go back for second helpings at the unlimited buffet, even when our stomachs are already full? And how did we ever start spending $4.15 on a cup of coffee when, just a few years ago, we used to pay less than a dollar? When it comes to making decisions in our lives, we think we're in control. We think we're making smart, rational choices. But are we? In a series of illuminating, often surprising experiments, MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking research, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities. Not only do we make astonishingly simple mistakes every day, but we make the same types of mistakes, Ariely discovers. We consistently overpay, underestimate, and procrastinate. We fail to understand the profound effects of our emotions on what we want, and we overvalue what we already own. Yet these misguided behaviors are neither random nor senseless. They're systematic and predictablemaking us predictably irrational.

Irrational behavior is a part of human nature, but as MIT professor Ariely has discovered in 20 years of researching behavioral economics, people tend to behave irrationally in a predictable fashion.

Irrational behavior is a part of human nature, but as MIT professor Ariely has discovered in 20 years of researching behavioral economics, people tend to behave irrationally in a predictable fashion. Drawing on psychology and economics, behavioral economics can show us why cautious people make poor decisions about sex when aroused, why patients get greater relief from a more expensive drug over its cheaper counterpart and why honest people may steal office supplies or communal food, but not money.

Originally conceived by the maker Adriana Breukink in 2008, the 'Eagle' recorder has rapidly developed into an instrument which combines a large sound with a wide range – making it ideal for playing with modern instruments. When the Swedish recorder virtuoso Dan Laurin first encountered it, he was fascinated but also puzzled. What kind of music could he play on this instrument? Coming into contact with the Dutch composer Chiel Meijering he soon found out: Meijering – who had started to write for the recorder as early as 1979 – had developed a passion for the new model.

Berlino, inverno 1946. La guerra è appena terminata e la città mostra al mondo tutte le sue ferite. Pavel Richter non possiede quasi nulla, a parte i tanti libri che tappezzano le pareti del suo appartamento. Con lui c'è Anders. un orfanello che traffica nel mercato nero e procura a Pavel la penicillina di cui ha bisogno per una brutta infezione ai reni. In cambio. Pavel cerca di fare da padre e da insegnante al ragazzino. Al piano di sopra abita Sonia, una donna che come tante altre ha un solo bene da offrire in cambio di ciò che le serve per non morire di stenti: il proprio corpo. Che cosa la unisce a Pavel? Ma soprattutto, chi è veramente. Pavel Richter? Ha il passaporto americano e parla alla perfezione quattro lingue, compreso il russo: legge Dickens ad alta voce e cita a memoria Dostoevskij, ma non batte ciglio quando il suo migliore amico, Boyd White. di professione magnaccia, si presenta alla sua porta con una strana consegna: un cadavere…
