DESCRIPTION : Drawing on philosophy, political and social theory, decision-theory, economics, psychology, history and literature, Jon Elster's classic book Sour Grapes continues and complements the arguments of his acclaimed earlier book, Ulysses and the Sirens. Elster begins with an analysis of the notation of rationality, before tackling the notions of irrational behavior, desires and belief with highly sophisticated arguments that subvert the orthodox theories of rational choice. Presented in a fresh series livery and with a specially commissioned preface written by Richard Holton, illuminating its continuing importance to philosophical enquiry, Sour Grapes has been revived for a new generation of readers.

And what of the series of recent local murders, and the mishaps that have befallen a number of people?

DESCRIPTION : "Golf and life are works of art, designed by the player." Author Unknown This book contains no sex, no scandal, and not even any outrageous claims to make you thin, sober, smoke-free, or fabulously wealthy. So, why in the world would anyone want to read it? Think of it this way. Medical experts agree that stress is bad. As sure as the sun rises, frustration is a big contributor to stress. The sole purpose of this little book is to reduce frustration among golfers. A few hours spent with it will lead to expanding one's enjoyment of the royal and ancient game. No Mulligans combines common sense suggestions for acquiring a sound, repeatable golf swing with proven methods of developing the mental discipline needed to play golf consistently. This book is not a technical manual about grip, swing, stance, or such. Instead, it addresses using the awesome power of our sub-conscious to control both our swing and our emotional response to events on the course. It explains the paradox that less effort and more relaxation will actually improve your game. Anyone who has suffered the frustration of a less than perfect round of golf will benefit from reading this under-sized tome. We believe this includes a fairly large number of people. Without doubt, the best sawbuck you will ever spend on this wretched old game!
