Post Title: The packging is the product.
By johngriffin0928, Feed Name: Forever Learning
Preview: I live about 12 miles from my job, so that means it takes me at least 45 minutes to get there in morning traffic and more than an hour to get home at night. To fill the time on the road, I almost always listen to a book on CD as a way of catching [...]

Post Title: Cognitive Biases
By Karen1961, Feed Name: Karen1961
Preview: Having looked over the list on cognitive biases, I'm not sure if I actually can relate to 5 or 7 of the biases.
