We're back already - as promised - with the third installment of pre-Christmas book recommendations for your personal wish- or shopping-lists. Roger is back with some really interesting non-fiction works, and of course Peter has one to add from his shelf. Bruce Springsteen: Born to Run The autobiography of the Boss. "'nuff said!" Daniel Kahneman: Thinking, fast and slow A nobel prize winner's insights on how our brain works. Karen Joy Fowler: We are all completely beside ourselves A novel about a family and a mysterious disappearance. But all based on fact and a good read to think about what's going on in science nowadays. Alison Gopnik: The gardener and the carpenter A book about parenting, what to do and what not to. Our question to be discussed in another episode: Does this have implications for language learning?
