Editor's Note: On July 30, 2012, Jonah Lehrer confirmed a journalist’s report that a number of quotations appearing in Imagine: How Creativity Works were fabrications, and publicly apologized for misleading his readers.  Publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has subsequently recalled all editions of the book. 

 

We recently re-introduced the B&N Recommends program - highlighting books our booksellers can’t stop talking about – with William Landay’s Defending Jacob. Landay’s gripping, thought-provoking book was a huge hit among B&N readers, and went on to become a New York Times bestseller.

 

Now we’re ready to reveal our newest B&N Recommends selection, Jonah Lehrer’s fascinating book Imagine: How Creativity Works. Imagine is available for pre-order now, but to help introduce NOOK readers to Lehrer’s previous books, we’re offering a limited-time price reduction on How We Decide and Proust was a Neuroscientist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How We Decide —an engaging and useful book exploring how neuroscience can help us make better decisions—is only 99 cents, today only. The best decision you can make today? Downloading this excellent and insightful book at a great price.

 

Lehrer’s debut book, Proust Was a Neuroscientist, was a B&N Discover Great New Writers pick at the time of publication, and holds up as one of the most interesting reflections on the intersection of art and science that you’ll ever read. It’s currently available for just $3.99, and offers an accessible investigation of great artists—including Proust, Cézanne & George Eliot—and how their art unlocked some of science’s greatest mysteries.

 

Once you’ve read these two impressive books, you’ll be eagerly awaiting Imagine—yet another groundbreaking work from a talented science writer at the top of his game.
