The Chocolate Touch Book Review:

Vive la Laura Florand! --Cassandra King La Vie en Chocolat Dominique Richard's reputation says it all--wild past, wilder flavors, black leather and smoldering heat. Jaime Corey is hardly the first woman to be drawn to all that dark, delicious danger. Sitting in Dom's opulent chocolaterie in Paris day after day, she lets his decadent creations restore her weary body and spirit, understanding that the man himself is entirely beyond her grasp. Until he touches her. . . Chocolate, Dominique understands--from the biting tang of lime-caramel to the most complex infusions of jasmine, lemon-thyme, and cayenne. But this shy, freckled American who sits alone in his salon, quietly sampling his exquisite confections as if she can't get enough of them--enough of him--is something else. She has secrets too, he can tell. Of course if she really knew him, she would run. Yet once you have spotted your heart's true craving, simply looking is no longer enough. . . Praise for Laura Florand and her novels "I adored this story. . .Paris, chocolate, and romance, all in one hilarious package." --New York Times bestelling author Eloisa James "Readers will devour this frothy, fun novel."--Booklist "Both sensual and sweet. . .a story that melts in your mouth!" --USA Today bestselling author Christie Ridgway

Lifespan Development and the Brain Book Review:

The book focuses on the developmental analysis of the brain-culture-environment dynamic and argues that this dynamic is interactive and reciprocal. Brain and culture co-determine each other. As a whole, this book refutes any unidirectional conception of the brain-culture dynamic. Each is influenced by and modifies the other. To capture the ubiquitous reach and significance of the mutually dependent brain-culture system, the metaphor of biocultural co-constructivism is invoked. Distinguished researchers from cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology and developmental psychology review the evidence in their respective fields. A special focus of the book is its coverage of the entire human lifespan from infancy to old age.
