"Kari is a total pro. She put me at ease immediately and asked smart questions. She had clearly read my book with interest and care. Particularly with the dwindling print media devoted to books, the literary world is fortunate to have BookRadio."

Big Data as a Lens on Human Culture


Erez Aiden


Jean-Baptiste Michel


erez aiden_jean_baptiste_michel 

The phenomenon of Big Data is producing mountains of information about every facet of our lives and our civilization. But, to understand it, a new tool was developed -- the "Google Ngram Viewer". It made headlines when it was launched in 2010 because it scans millions of books all at once, searching for trends in the text that reveal human history across the centuries. Kari talks with Harvard-trained scientists Erez Aiden and Jean-Baptiste Michel about finding answers to a huge range of seemingly unanswerable questions by blending Advanced Mathematics with the Humanities....it's a marriage of disciplines they call "Culturomics" and it may one day not only tell us about our past but predict our future, too.





Chapter 2: Literary Fiction

A Thriller


Drew Chapman

drew chapman


"The Ascendant" introduces thriller fans to a new kind of action hero...he's Garrett Reilly, a "savant" who's got a singular gift for spotting patterns in numbers. Reilly is doing well as a Wall Street Bond Trader until he uncovers a plot...the Chinese are conspiring to upset world markets and impact the U-S economy by rapidly selling off $200 billion dollars in U-S Treasury Bonds. The U-S Military drafts Reilly to oversee a crack team of rogue soldiers – they've got a week to digitally defend the country or face a catastrophic war...but Reilly's gift makes him a wanted man by others, too. These powerful people don't want his skills, they simply want him dead.

Five Tools To Create New And Sustainable Habits In Yourself And Others


Art Markman, PhD

art markman


Psychologist and best-selling Author Art Markman uses the latest findings in cognitive science to create a framework to help you change bad habits and create good ones. But, he cautions that it will not only take a New Year's resolution, it'll take some work to get your brain retrained to stop smoking, lose weight or achieve other goals. Why? Because the human brain habitually tries to take the path of least resistance, preserve energy and go for the short-term reward. In "Smart Change", Dr. Markman offers tools that will get you motivated so really can mindfully make changes and influence positive behaviors in yourself and others, too!
