Staffpicks: Outliers

I’m fascinated by books that take our assumptions and turn them on their ear. This is such a book. Throughout, Gladwell examines the accidents and co-incidences that have spelled the differences between success stories and equally intelligent and talented others. Why is a Canadian hockey player born on Christmas so much less likely to succeed than one born on New Years day? What unique circumstances positioned Bill Gates and the Beatles to succeed? And why were such a huge portion of the wealthiest people in history born within 9 years of one another? All these questions and more explored in: Outliers, by Malcolm Gladwell.

A weekend jewelrystravoganza.

On Friday, April 30 join us from 3:00 to 5:30pm to make some corsages and jewelry.

Then come back on Saturday, May 1 for a jewelry party from noon to 2pm.

While you’re here Saturday, stop through for Free Comic Book Day.

We look forward to seeing you.

Staff Picks: Only You Can Save Mankind

Johnny Maxwell has a new video game. You shoot the aliens, you rack up points. It’s fun. But then one day the aliens try to surrender to him. As it turns out, they don’t want to die. How do you deal with a video game that just doesn’t want to behave properly? And what will Johnny do when other players start turning their games on and attacking?  Find out in "Only You Can Save Mankind" by Terry Pratchett.
