Trial, Error, and Success
by Dr. Sima Dimitrijev & Maryann Karinch
BARGAIN
Non-Fiction/Business
Rating: 4.5


Everything in nature evolves by trial and error. We cannot avoid this fundamental method of natural evolution, but our human advantage is that we can think about and learn from the errors before trying again.

Trial, Error, and Success helps boost that advantage with 10 insights into realistic knowledge, thinking, and emotional intelligence. You will see throughout the book how successful thinking combines sharp analyses of new information with broad analogies to existing knowledge. The authors use real-life examples to show: How thinking can avoid overgeneralization traps. How to create new knowledge by trial-and-error thinking. How to reduce personal risk and maximize benefits by collective application of the trial-and-error process. It becomes obvious why machine learning and automatic actions cannot replace human intelligence and decision making!


Runaway Masters: A True Story of Slavery, Freedom, Triumph, and Tragedy Beyond 1619 and 1776
by Joseph Cotto
BARGAIN
History
Rating: 5.0


For generations, they ruled over blacks and whites. They were--and still are--the Seminoles, the only American Indians who never surrendered to Uncle Sam. Runaways from other tribes, the Seminoles carved a kingdom for themselves out of the wilds of Florida, despite British and Spanish imperialists theoretically ruling the day.

The Seminoles also enslaved fugitives from American plantations, creating a slaveholding society unlike any other. When the Americans wanted not only their slaves back, but unsurpassed control over Florida, the Seminoles formed a groundbreaking alliance with those who they held in bondage. What happened next is an epic story of victory, defeat, friendship, betrayal, hard truths, damnable lies, integration, segregation, heroism, cowardice, deep respect, blind hatred, and--above all else--the struggle for survival.
