Book Reviews

Augustus: The Life of Rome’s First Emperor
Anthony Everitt 

Zheng:Easy read; fluent and well written. Author used vast sources to reconstruct a rather complete picture of the life of Octavian and people around him within the context of their time.

Predictably Irrational, Revised and Expanded Edition: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions
Dan Ariely

Zheng: Psychology of human decisions. Author really dug into the human decision making process, reminding us the irrational mistakes we make when make decisions.

Human
Michael S. Gazzaniga

Zheng: What make us human? A less esoteric substitution for a course in evolutionary neuroscience. Fun read!

Zheng: Must read.
