We live in other people's heads: avidly, reluctantly, consciously, unaware, mistakenly, and inescapably. Our social life is a constant negotiation among what we think we know about each other's thoughts and feelings, what we want each other to think we know, and what we would dearly love to know but don't. Cognitive scientists have a special term for the evolved cognitive adaptation that makes us attribute mental states to other people through observation of their body language; they call it theory of mind. Getting Inside Your Head uses research in theory of mind to look at movies, musicals, novels, classic Chinese opera, stand-up comedy, mock-documentaries, photography, and reality television. It follows Pride and Prejudice’s Mr. Darcy as he tries to conceal his anger, Tyler Durden as he lectures a stranger at gunpoint in Fight Club, and Ingrid Bergman as she fakes interest in horse races in Notorious. This engaging book exemplifies the new interdisciplinary field of cognitive cultural studies, demonstrating that collaboration between cognitive science and cultural studies is both exciting and productive.

With so many medical tests and treatments and so much scientific and medical information—some of it contradictory—how can people make the best medical decisions? Most medical decisions, it turns out, are based on common sense. In this short and easy-to-read book, Dr. Phillip K. Peterson explains the ten rules of internal medicine. Using real case examples he shows how following the rules will help consumers make good decisions about their medical care. Get Inside Your Doctor’s Head providesadvice about such questions as when to seek treatment, when to get another opinion, and when to let time take its course. Turn to the Ten Rules when you are weighing your doctor’s recommendations about diagnostic tests and treatments and use them to communicate more effectively with your doctor. As with all rules, the Ten Rules of Internal Medicine have occasional exceptions—and when evidence suggests that you are an exception, the relevant rule should be broken. Follow the Ten Rules to make decisions in the increasingly complicated medical world when you need guidance about health matters for yourself and your loved ones. -- Charles E. Davis, M.D., University of California, San Diego, author of The International Traveler’s Guide to Avoiding Infections

From the author of "Purification: Cleansing of a contaminated soul" comes a second collection of words that resemble poetry. "You can't get inside my head it's already overcrowded" is hopeful to appeal to those who have not had interest in this genre before, as well as, those who are interested. This book contains words that spill over onto paper that eventually fill the voids of the soul and mind. The writings in this book once again express topics of love and death, but also expand out to other subject matters. There is no doubt that one will find a combination of humor and strong emotion within . This is a simple read with deep honesty. Suzy Geers, writer for Pulse Magazine (Worcesters's Entertainment Mag) stated the following of Purification, "Poetry. For me, it's a touchy art form. Some goes right over my head, and that's fine, I get that (I am certainly nooo expert on the subject but Shel Silverstein rocks, right?!), and some, I truly enjoy and even manage to absorb. Enter Worcester's resident modern poet, John Dervishian. A thirty-something (you can figure out his age by Googling ~ John graduated Cambridge Rindge and Latin School with none other than Matt Damon) with a penchant for penning some poignant and very relatable verses." Mark Lynch of WICN (Worcester Radio Personailty) stated "Poet John D. was one of the very few poets I didn't want to kill in 10 minutes after talking to them. He was one of the most clear-headed, grounded artists I have talked to in a while and the classic "helluva nice guy." I am obviously meeting the wrong poets. He's a good poet too. He's one of those artists you have to root for to get some recognition. "
