<b>The stunning graphic novel adaptation • A must-read and collector’s item for fans of “the patron saint of feminist dystopian fiction” (<i>New York Times</i>).</b><br /> <br /><b>Look for <i>The Testaments</i>, the sequel to <i>The Handmaid’s Tale</i>, coming September 2019.</b><br /> <br />In Margaret Atwood’s dystopian future, environmental disasters and declining birthrates have led to a Second American Civil War.

<p><b>Dan Ariely, the <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Predictably Irrational</i>, and illustrator Matt R. Trower present a playful graphic novel guide to better decision-making, based on the author’s groundbreaking research in behavioral economics, neuroscience, and psychology. </b></p><p>The internationally renowned author Dan Ariely is known for his incisive investigations into the messy business of decision-making. Now, in <i>Amazing Decisions</i>, his unique perspective—informed by behavioral economics, neuroscience, and psychology—comes alive in the graphic form. The illustrator Matt R. Trower’s playful and expressive artwork captures the lessons of Ariely’s groundbreaking research as they explore the essential question: How can we make better decisions?</p><p><i>Amazing Decisions</i> follows the narrator, Adam, as he faces the daily barrage of choices and deliberations. He juggles two overlapping—and often contradictory—sets of norms: social norms and market norms. These norms inform our thinking in ways we often don’t notice, just as Adam is shadowed by the “market fairy” and the “social fairy,” each compelling him to act in certain ways. Good decision-making, Ariely argues, requires us to identify and evaluate the forces at play under different circumstances, leading to an optimal outcome. <i>Amazing Decisions </i>is a fascinating and entertaining guide to developing skills that will prove invaluable in personal and professional life.</p>

Finally, a math book that looks GREAT on a phone/tablet screen!<br /><br />This volume is the first in a 4-volume set of CALCULUS BLUE books on multivariable calculus and is part of a revolutionary series of graphical Mathematics texts optimized for reading on phones/tablets/laptops. Not only is the format novel, the curricular approach is a contemporary take on the classic core, with a particular emphasis on preparation for modern data science. <br /><br />Calculus BLUE Multivariable Volume 1: Vectors & Matrices introduces vector and matrix algebra in the context of preparing for multivariable calculus. Topics covered in this text include:<br />* curves and surfaces<br />* vectors and coordinates<br />* matrices and matrix algebra<br />* matrix equations and linear systems<br />* row reduction and inverse matrix computation<br />* coordinate changes and bases<br />* determinants and their interpretation and computation<br />* a preview of linear algebra and matrices of partial derivatives<br /><br />Throughout, the text is filled with contemporary applications to robotics, data, mechanics, economics, probability, networks, and biology. Theory and application are brought to life in full eye-scorching color (though a lot of it is blue). <br /><br />This volume consists of 18 chapters (plus a prologue, epilogue, and foreshadowing of volume 2), each containing exercises for practice, for a total of 425 pages of mathematics and color and joy and hard labor. The 2nd edition includes a new chapter, an interlude, updated graphics throughout, and more efficient compression for faster navigation.<br /><br />NOTE! This is graphics intensive, and the file size is quite large. You will want to download it over a wireless connection rather than cellular. Also, although Amazon says this is a "print replica", there is no printed text this is based on. This book was hand-crafted for electronic format. It looks phenomenal on a modern smart-phone. You can pinch-zoom, use bookmarks, build custom flashcards, and more. Enjoy!
