ISBN 9789025433703
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Wanneer je mensen herinnert aan de tien geboden, zijn ze minder snel geneigd te liegen, ook als het atheïsten zijn. Een aspirientje van een duur merk helpt beter tegen hoofdpijn dan een goedkoop eigen merk, zelfs al zijn de pilletjes identiek. Als we érgens op kunnen rekenen, dan is het wel op de irrationaliteit van menselijk gedrag. En dus maakt het niet uit hoeveel voorlichting een overheid geeft over de gevaren van onbeschermde seks: zodra de opwinding toeslaat, wordt het gezonde verstand overboord gekieperd, zoals Ariely met een amusant experiment laat zien. Waarom we altijd tijd te kort komen toont met verrassende voorbeelden en onderzoeken aan hoe slecht we in staat zijn de juiste beslissingen te nemen en hoe we met dat besef ons voordeel kunnen doen. Net als Malcolm Gladwell slaagt Ariely erin om de nieuwste inzichten over menselijk gedrag voor iedereen bruikbaar te maken

READING: De zestienjarige Szu woont met haar moeder Amisa, in de jaren zeventig een beeldschone actrice, in een vervallen huis in de hitte en drukte van Singapore. Als Szu de rijke en zeer sarcastische Circe ontmoet, worden ze meteen beste vriendinnen. Voor Szu is de vriendschap een kans om te ontsnappen aan de verstikkende relatie met haar moeder, en Circe is op haar beurt gefascineerd door de mysterieuze beroemdheid Amisa. Zeventien jaar later zit Circe diep in de put, als ze op haar werk wordt gevraagd om mee te werken aan een remake van de jaren 70-cultfilm Ponti, de film waar Amisa ooit kortstondig beroemd mee is geworden. Circe zit opeens weer met haar gedachten bij de twee vrouwen uit haar verleden, en ze worstelt met een schuldgevoel dat ze al die tijd heeft weten te onderdrukken. Vanuit het perspectief van de drie vrouwen vertelt Ponti over vriendschap en herinnering, en hoe de beslissingen die je als tiener neemt consequenties kunnen hebben die pas jaren later duidelijk worden.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Nieuwspraak, Big Brother, het vocabulaire uit 1984 is in onze taal opgenomen en een eigen leven gaan leiden. De roman van George Orwell uit 1949 over de strijd van Winston Smith, ambtenaar op het ministerie van Waarheid, tegen de alles doordringende Partij, en zijn gedoemde liefde voor Julia heeft niets van zijn literarie zeggingskracht verloren. In Orwells steeds weer herdrukte anti-utopie verkeert de wereld in de wurggreep van een systeem dat is gegrondvest op de verbreiding van angst, haat en wreedheid, en dat iedere vorm van persoonlijke vrijheid en indiviualiteit uitsluit. 1984 is onverminderd geldig als benauwend nauwkeurig blauwdruk van elk dictatoriaal regime.
