This is one of those frustrated 1am posts. I have lots of ideas for posts, but they won't come together properly after I've spent 8 hours zippering up old ladies into Special Occasion Dresses. And trying to restore order to the fitting rooms when the prom queens have been trying on hundreds of dresses. I did however have my lunch break at Barns and Nobles, and discovered a wonderful new book called the Logic of Life: The Rational Economics of an Irrational World by Tim Harford. On how elementary logic underlies people's seemingly spontaneous and irrational decisions. Better yet, he's got a blog! The Undercover Economist.
