The hidden brain is the voice in our ear when we make the most important decisions in our lives—but we’re never aware of it. The hidden brain decides whom we fall in love with and whom we hate. It tells us to vote for the white candidate and convict the dark-skinned defendant, to hire the thin woman but pay her less than the man doing the same job. It can direct us to safety when disaster strikes and move us to extraordinary acts of altruism. But it can also be manipulated to turn an ordinary person into a suicide terrorist or a group of bystanders into a mob. In a series of compulsively readable narratives, Shankar Vedantam journeys through the latest discoveries in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral science to uncover the darkest corner of our minds and its decisive impact on the choices we make as individuals and as a society. Filled with fascinating characters, dramatic storytelling, and cutting-edge science, this is an engrossing exploration of the secrets our brains keep from us—and how they are revealed.

When the original version of YouTube Strategies went to #1 at Amazon, and continued to sell impressive numbers (and) to great reviews, I knew this book had her part in the marketplace and dialog. To my past readers and supporters, I can't thank you enough. Why the update for 2014? We're seeing a rapid maturation at YouTube in areas that should be part of any YouTube Strategy - at any level. Some of these elements weren't in the first book. They are in this one. In my history of producing Internet training (I've been online since before there was the Web), I've prided myself on creating content that lasted. Last year I made 4 different videos in the studio that I had to delete before I could publish them because of the changes being made a YouTube. Live Video isn't the only "new" thing for YouTube. From a fully integrated Social Engine (across Google Plus and the other social networks) to Premium (paid) content options, YouTube's reach, and your potential impact with it, grows every day. YouTube keeps getting bigger and bigger - and her reach and impact continue to grow at an extremely impressive rate. At the time of writing, YouTube reports seeing 100 hours of video uploaded to their site every single minute. I'm sure by the time this book goes to press, the number will go up. Note: this doesn't include Live video on YouTube - another fast growing segment of what we're watching online. Getting impact from your videos at YouTube is a much math problem as it is anything else. We address some of those issues here. So, with that, I (re)release this book updated for 2014. At it's core are the top 21 questions I get asked about YouTube (as well as a few that people should be asking). I am still asked these questions on a regular basis and I am still convinced that YouTube Strategies begin with a clear understanding of how YOU need to answer these questions in your own YouTube efforts. At the end of each answer is an even shorter summary and a few action items. Put them to good use - and TAKE ACTION.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, NAMED BY THE TIMES AS ONE OF "6 BOOKS TO HELP UNDERSTAND TRUMP'S WIN" AND SOON TO BE A MAJOR-MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY RON HOWARD "You will not read a more important book about America this year."—The Economist "A riveting book."—The Wall Street Journal "Essential reading."—David Brooks, New York Times Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of white working-class Americans. The disintegration of this group, a process that has been slowly occurring now for more than forty years, has been reported with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck. The Vance family story begins hopefully in postwar America. J. D.’s grandparents were “dirt poor and in love,” and moved north from Kentucky’s Appalachia region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them. They raised a middle-class family, and eventually one of their grandchildren would graduate from Yale Law School, a conventional marker of success in achieving generational upward mobility. But as the family saga of Hillbilly Elegy plays out, we learn that J.D.'s grandparents, aunt, uncle, sister, and, most of all, his mother struggled profoundly with the demands of their new middle-class life, never fully escaping the legacy of abuse, alcoholism, poverty, and trauma so characteristic of their part of America. With piercing honesty, Vance shows how he himself still carries around the demons of his chaotic family history. A deeply moving memoir, with its share of humor and vividly colorful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels. And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.

Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? How much do parents really matter? These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He studies the riddles of everyday life--from cheating and crime to parenting and sports--and reaches conclusions that turn conventional wisdom on its head. Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They set out to explore the inner workings of a crack gang, the truth about real estate agents, the secrets of the Ku Klux Klan, and much more. Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, they show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives--how people get what they want or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.
