1 Fromm, Erich The Dogma of Christ and Other Essays on Religion, Psychology and Culture
No; The long essay title, which comprises nearly half of the book, has often been cited as germinal to the discussion of religion and psychology; . Fromm approaches the dogma of Christ by way of a discriminating the use of the insights provided by psychoanalysis and social history. Much of the experience of early Christianity, with its emphasis on the role of the son, is understood in terms of revolutionary stirrings of long-oppressed social groups that had every reason to displace the authority of the Empire that had become a tyrannical paternalism. Other essays in this volume, some never before appearing in this country, appeal beyond the partisanship of various "schools" of psychoanalysis, both to professional psychologists, who are willing to see their basic assumptions retested and to the larger group of concerned laymen who wish to confront their personal, social, and ethical problems from a deeply human perspective. The jacket has a few wrinkles and closed tears at the corners and long edges. The end papers are lightened around the edges. ; Octavo (standard book size); 212 pages

2 Gigerenzer, Gerd Gut Feelings
No; Note the cover illustration: It explains just what this book is about, which is intuition. The author takes us step-by-step through the science of good decision-making. The trick is not to amass information, but to discard it: To know intuitively what one doesn't need to know. No pros and cons lists, he suggests that we hone the cognitive, emotional, and social repertoire we've evolved over the millennia. It has been said that the author's research is "a revolution in cognitive science, striking a great blow for sanity in the approach to human rationality. " Includes drawings and an index. The jacket's top front has a tiny foldover.; Octavo (standard book size); 280 pages
