I received an Advanced Readers Copy of this book through the LibraryThing.com Advanced Readers Program.
Here is the Description from the back cover of the copy I received:
A fascinating exploration of the invisible forces that influence your life - and how understanding them can improve everything you do.
The world around you is shaping your innermost instincts and your most private of preferences, and you don't even realize it. Every day we overlook the enormous power of context in our lives. That's a mistake, says Sam Sommers in Situations Mtter: Understanding How Context Transforms Your World. In this provocative and surprising book, Sommers reveals the powerful influence that context has in our lives and uses these insights to rethink how we see the world, making us more effective at work, at home, and with others.
Sam Sommers is an award-winning psychology professor at Tufts University. His research has been covered by Good Morning America, NPR, Harper's, The Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times. He lives near Boston with this wife and two daughters.
