'Scales's genuine appreciation and awe for fish are contagious.' Science'Delightful' New ScientistSeventy per cent of the earth's surface is covered by water. This vast aquatic realm is inhabited by a multitude of strange creatures and reigning supreme among them are the fish.There are giants that live for centuries and thumb-sized tiddlers that survive only weeks, they can be pancake-flat or inflatable balloons, they can shout with colours or hide in plain sight, cheat and dance, remember and say sorry, some rarely budge while others travel the globe restlessly. And yet the mesmerising and complex lives of fish remain largely underrated and unseen, living hidden beneath the waterline, out of sight and out of mind.Helen Scales is our guide on an underwater journey, as we fathom the depths and watch these animals going about the glorious business of being fish. As well as the fish, we meet devoted fishwatchers past and present, from voodoo zombie potion hunters and scientists who taught fish how to walk to nonagenarian explorers of the deep sea.Woven throughout are vignettes of Helen's own aquatic explorations, from eerie nighttime dives with glowing fish and up-close encounters with giant manta rays, to floating in the middle of a swirling shoal being watched by thousands of inquisitive eyes.As well as being a rich and entertaining read, this book will inspire readers to think again about these animals and the seas they inhabit, and to go out and appreciate the wonders of fish, whether through the glass walls of an aquarium or, better still, by gazing into the fishes' wild world and swimming through it.'Engaging and informative' The Economist

Behavioural economist and New York Times best-selling author of Predictably Irrational Dan Ariely returns to offer a much-needed take on the irrational decisions that influence our dating lives, our workplace experiences, and our general behaviour, up close and personal. In The Upside of Irrationality, behavioral economist Dan Ariely will explore the many ways in which our behaviour often leads us astray in terms of our romantic relationships, our experiences in the workplace, and our temptations to cheat. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking research, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities. Among the topics Dan explores are: What we think will make us happy and what really makes us happy How we learn to love the ones we are with Why online dating doesn't work and how we can improve on it Why learning more about people make us like them less Why large bonuses can make CEOs less productive How to really motivate people at work Why bad directions can help us How we fall in love with our ideas How we are motivated by revenge What motivates us to cheat Drawing on the same experimental methods that made Predictably Irrational such a hit, Dan will emphasise the important role that irrationality plays in our day-to-day decision-making - not just in our financial marketplace but in the most hidden aspects of our lives. 1.
