The headphones work great, but whenever I skype with them people complain about distortions, and prefer the sound of the mic in my laptop. Not impressed.

3.0 out of 5 stars A very uneven introduction to Taoism, 1 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At times Benjamin Hoff is utterly brilliant. Especially when he takes examples from the original Pooh books and use them to explain Daoist concepts that can be quite obscure to an uninitiated reader. Sadly, the brilliance is counterbalanced by long ranty, and judgemental sections that doesn't at all fit with my understanding of Daoism.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lucid introduction to the forefront of modern psychology, 1 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Barrett combines evidence from comparative psychology, robotics and AI to make a comprehensive argument regarding the nature of human reasoning. Specifically, she examines the way cognition is dependent on the body, and its environment as well as the brain. In doing so, she effectively deals with the Descartesian dualism that remains implicit in a lot of psychology.

Altough Barrett endevours to be accessible to the general reader, some background knowledge in scientific psychology does help. However, this book provides an amazing introduction to embodied cognition for undergraduates and postgraduates in psychology, and that is the audience I would primarily reccomend it to.
