A Fleet Street fire was started today when a junior publishing executive took too literally the instruction to toast the new Booker Prize winner

    Yey. In explore

    Never say "So let's toast my favourite books" to someone with Aspergers........
    So... the best books I have read in the last year....that fit in the toaster!!

    Yes! 50 secrets from the science of persuasion... Goldstein,Martin and Ciardini
    Wonderful romp through what makes us tick and motivates us ( that'll be Flickr for most of us)
    Six Thinking Hats by Edward De Bono.. a concept so simple they teach it in my kids school at the age of 6

    The Undercover Economist Tim Harford. Fascinating read, convicing proof the whole world is screwy.

    the Tipping point by Malcolm Gladwell. Love anything by him. He makes the most dry of subjects fascinating. How little differences can change the world. Not as good as "Blink" one of his other books but that didn't fit in the toaster and neither does Outliers!!!!

      This is terribly original...but I have to wonder, did it really take a book to convince you the world is screwy? LOL :0) BTW...my day job involves this very thing! Ha!

      Hey! This is an oldie! I don't think I'm clever enough for the snorty pool (although I enjoy it!)...

      This cracks me up. Couldn't do this myself, my kindle wouldn't fit in the toaster. You have quite a sense of humor, my friend!

      Sounds like some pretty dry reads there.
