Sway and Johnny Bunko

Sway: The Irrestible Pull of Irrational Behavior by Ori Brafman and Rom Brafman

This book explores why humans react irrationally. It's a compendium of experiments that you learned from Psych 104/105 with some new psychological studies.  It was quick read as I was already familar with the concepts such as loss aversion, value attribution and the value of dissenting.

The Adventures of Johnny Bunko - The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need by Daniel H. Pink

This is a book is a career guide, but it's illustrated in manga which is an unexpected way of presenting information. This book seems to be geared towards twentysomethings experiencing a quarter life crisis with regards to where their career is heading. The advice is simplistic, but works. I recommend it because it's entertaining based on how they present the information and the information itself, and when was the last time you read a comic book that was also educational?

Thanks for the kind words about THE ADVENTURES OF JOHNNY BUNKO. Glad you enjoyed it. As someone who made it through law school a couple of decades ago, I feel your pain.
Cheers,
