Mastermind: How To Think Like Sherlock Holmes – By: Maria Konnikova – NEW NONFICTION: 153.4 KON
This is a great book for people who want to de-clutter their mind and start thinking more purposefully. In her book Konnikova ( a science and psychology writer) focuses on the techniques used by the greatest fictional detective of all time to help regular people learn to streamline their thinking. A good read for people who like Holmes and those just looking to see the world a different way.
A superbly absurd comedy about a man who finds himself the center of a living novel. Will Farrell plays Harold Crick: an IRS adjuster who lives a very orderly life until he starts to hear narration of his thoughts and actions. It is when Harold learns the author of his book likes to kill her main characters, that Harold decides to live the life he’s always wanted. A funny and touching movie.
In Treatment – Season 1 – Starring: Gabriel Byrne, Dianne Wiest, Michelle Forbes – DVD: IN TREATMENT
In Treatment is about therapist Paul Weston as he tries to help his patients and keep his own life in order. The format follows 4 different patients and Paul’s session with his own therapist giving each session its own 30-minute episode. In this episode format its possible to watch the progression of one patient at a time or watch all the sessions in the same week. It was a very daring and well done series full of questions about the fragility of the human condition and how people cope with difficulties in their lives.
