    Reviewed by T. G. Cleaver
    "The weatherman said there's a 50% chance of rain for Saturday and a 50% chance for Sunday. I guess that means a 100% chance for the weekend."
    "I wouldn't visit Europe if I were you; you might get killed by a terrorist." If you believe those things, or know anyone who would, you need to read this book. Dr. Paulos gives a very readable and even amusing look at why Americans have trouble dealing with numbers. How many times have you heard: "I'm a people person, not a numbers person." "I always hated math." "I can't even balance my checkbook." spoken with pride? Dr. Paulos explains why innumeracy is nothing to be proud of, and the trouble it can get us into. He discusses percentages, coincidences, probability, and statistics. He gives many excellent examples of how we can be deliberately or accidentally mislead by numbers. He is particularly tough on politicians, poll takers, and the media. The book has an excellent chapter on pseudoscience. I highly recommend this book for anyone from 9th grade on up.

    Flags of our Fathers
    by James Bradley
    buy This is the paperback edition. The hardcover is also available. Book Description Book Description
    Now the son of one of the flag-raisers has written a powerful account of six very different young men who came together in a moment that will live forever. To his family, John Bradley never spoke of the photograph or the war. But after his death at age seventy, his family discovered closed boxes of letters and photos. In Flags of Our Fathers, James Bradley draws on those documents to retrace the lives of his father and the men of Easy Company. Few books ever have captured the complexity and furor of war and its aftermath as well as Flags of Our Fathers. A penetrating, epic look at a generation at war, this is history told with keen insight, enormous honesty, and the passion of a son paying homage to his father. It is the story of the difference between truth and myth, the meaning of being a hero, and the essence of the human experience of war.

The dates for each exam and the specific material to be covered on each are listed on the course schedule. All exams will consist of essay (e.g., identify and describe; compare and contrast; explain) and objective (multiple-choice; completion) questions to test your knowledge (breadth and depth of understanding) of material from the lectures, readings, and discussions. To do well on the exams you must know and understand the concepts, principles, theories, controversies, terms, findings, relationships, and facts, and must be able to apply your knowledge. You should comprehend and study the readings, lectures, and discussions for detail as well as for the big picture. Attending classes and taking good notes will help you do this for the lectures. The Key Ideas, Terms, and Names at the end of each chapter in the Schwartz textbook (and perhaps the Study Guide that accompanies the text) will help your reading and studying of the textbook. Preparing for and actively participating in the discussions will help you on the exam questions based on them. I hope that all the exams (and paper and discussions for that matter) encourage you to think using the concepts, theories, principles, findings, and methodology of abnormal psychology.

In Brief From The Publisher The first fully illustrated book in thirty years to examine all the U.S. presidents, the Kunhardts' The American President is an overarching look at our nation's highest office. Organized with the help of historian Stephen Skowronek of Yale University, and with an introduction by the venerable presidential scholar Richard E. Neustadt of Harvard University, the book challenges any fixed notion of what the presidency is or has been. With an original approach, personal interviews with our living presidents, exhaustive research into presidential writings, both published and unpublished, and an impressive advisory team of presidential experts, it brings to fresh and vivid life a complex and ever-changing institution and the extraordinary men who have embodied it.
