Well hello there! A pleasure as always. First of all Why Arendt Matters is one of the best books I ever read. Second of all I owe you guys an apology as last month's newsletter was a little light. I wasn't quite as charming as usual (guilty as charged) and there was no book review. To be honest I was rushing to get the newsletter out before I went on tour with the band you hear when you call us and we put you on hold. It was very difficult for us to play into a can on the end of a string and pipe it back to Caversham, every time someone was put on hold, but we managed. My wife and sister-in-law met us at the end of the tour. My sister in law works at Vantage Community Services. They are worth a peek and have quite a lovely newsletter themselves. Anyway I was unfairly multi-tasking and the newsletter was on the receiving end of the neglect. Never again I say! This month we have a smouldering book review from Karl as well as many irreplaceable new titles for which we must give mention. We had a busy November going to many events. I am very impressed by the resilience and good nature of my co-workers. I shall use my virtual soapbox to give a shout out to Joe, Janet, Karl, Sam, Narmada, and Noah. I swear Ra's Al Ghul would recruit them all if they weren't such beautiful, and peaceful, souls.

Thinking in Bets - Annie Duke
As an amateur poker player, I've known about Annie Duke for a while - she writes great poker books that are full of cutting insight and ask the reader to reevaluate how they think about problems. So, I was intrigued when I saw she had written "Thinking in Bets" aimed at a much larger audience. It turns out, this book is awesome, full of ways to challenge one's core beliefs and make better decisions in life. Duke trained as a research psychologist before she got cold feet about academia and ran off to play poker instead. As it turns out, poker is a very complicated game that is as difficult to master as chess, but also, seems to be a great analogue to the messiness of life. With possibility and chance, there is an unpredictability to poker that forces you to try to make the best of situations despite having limited information. Duke challenges us to be more comfortable in saying that we are unsure of what is the best course of action and get away from being terrified of being wrong. By thinking in terms of bets, she asks us to put a value on how certain we feel about information or decisions, rather than automatically trusting in our beliefs. The most interesting parts of this book are about joining / using peer groups of people who are capable of challenging us to make better decisions, even if it means uncovering our cherished beliefs as false. Drawing on great research and current psychological thought and filled with exciting examples, this book is recommended for anyone who wants to be better at making life's decisions.

We shall not see her like again. March 3rd, 1946 - December 1st, 2011
