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.

Selected by Marcel Berlins in The Times as one of the 50 best crime novels of the last 50 years: 'Deon Meyer is acclaimed for his portrayals of crime and the police after the end of apartheid. Non-white detectives hold positions once monopolised by their white bosses, and the tensions are high' After 602 days dry, Captain Benny Griessel of the South African police services can't take any more tragedy. So when Benny is called in to investigate a multiple homicide, it pushes him close to breaking point - a former friend and detective colleague has shot his wife and two daughters, then killed himself. Benny wants out - out of his job, his home and his relationship with his singer girlfriend, Alexa. He moves into a hotel and starts drinking. Again. But Benny's unique talent is urgently required to help investigate another crime - the high profile murder of Ernst Richter, MD of a new tech startup, Alibi, whose body is discovered buried in the sand dunes north of Cape Town. Alibi is a service that creates false appointments, documents and phone calls to enable people to cheat on their partners. It has made Richter one of the most notorious people in South Africa. Can Benny pull together the strands of his life in time to catch the killer?

From a USA Today best-selling author comes a supernatural unlike any other....She is not what you are expecting. She's not what they are expecting, either. All Petra Kara wants in life is to study archaeology at the University of Cambridge. And she's so close. She's got the grades; she's got the ambition. All she needs now is an outrageous sum of money and experience on an old-world archaeological excavation. If only she could find a way to get rid of her annoying low-grade telepathy. There's nothing Petra hates more than a cheat and a liar, and it's too easy to cheat when you can read people's minds. When Petra spies an ad for a volunteer position on an excavation to North Africa, she knows its meant for her. But there is more waiting for her in Libya than broken pottery and human remains. A heart-pounding race through the desert under a sky full of stars with Jesse, her sexy dig-mate and newfound crush, ends when Petra slides into an ancient cave-system with strange stones embedded in the walls. That's where her life changes forever. As her powers manifest, there are those who think they have a good reason to destroy her before she becomes too powerful. Petra knows she is far more than just gales of wind. Just how old is she? Has she lived before? Who is the man in her vision with the silver eyes? But the biggest question of all is: Will she survive long enough to learn who she is and what she's really capable of? Born of Air is the fifth book in The Elemental Origins, a series of captivating YA urban fantasy stories which can be heard in any order. If you love strong female protagonists and elemental magic, then you’ll love A.L. Knorr’s mystical desert adventure. Buy Born of Air and get blown away today. 1. Language: English.

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath. Now she’s returned - to her old life, her family, her boyfriend - before she’s banished back to the underworld... this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can’t find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists. Nikki longs to spend these precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance - and the one person she loves more than anything. But there’s just one problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who enticed her to the Everneath in the first place, has followed Nikki home. Cole wants to take over the throne in the underworld and is convinced Nikki is the key to making it happen. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back, this time as his queen. As Nikki’s time on the Surface draws to a close and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she is forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole’s queen.

Where there's smoke, there's fire.... Thou shalt not lie, cheat, steal, covet thy neighbor's ass, or date thy sister's ex-boyfriend - simple commandments Maddie Whitehouse has never had any trouble keeping. But when s'mores and whiskey shots lead to Maddie and Jamison Hansen skinny-dipping under a full moon at a singles' camping retreat, Maddie realizes she has some serious repenting to do. Jamison may not be "technically" her sister's ex, but he's close enough. Besides, after the way things ended with her ex-husband, Maddie knows better than to get involved with another bad boy. Jamison Hansen is falling - hard and fast. Maddie Whitehouse is as sweet as the pastries she bakes, as unpredictable as Georgia weather in the spring, and lights a fire inside him he doesn't want to put out. And sneaking around to avoid their prying families only makes the chemistry between them that much hotter. Maddie is everything Jamison never knew he wanted, and it isn't long before the sparks between them kindle more serious feelings. But small towns are dangerous places for big secrets - a lesson Maddie and Jamison learn the hard way. Will the new couple be condemned by a jury of their peers, or live happily ever after? Sometimes forever doesn't come easy.... Fans of Bella Andre, Kristan Higgins, and Susan Mallery will love the Summerville romance series, stories featuring sassy Southern women and the alpha males who love them. 1. Language: English.
