Creating Connecticut by Walter W. Woodward Book Resume:

Connecticut State Historian Walter Woodward helps us understand how people and events in Connecticut’s past played crucial roles in forming the culture and character of Connecticut today. Woodward, a gifted story-teller, brings the history we thought we knew to life in new ways, from the nearly forgotten early presence of the Dutch, to the time when Connecticut was New England’s fiercest prosecutor of witches, the decades when Connecticans were rapidly leaving the state, and the years when Irish immigrants were hurrying into it. Whether it’s his investigation into the unusually rough justice meted out to Revolutionary War hero Nathan Hale, or a peek into Mark Twain’s smoking habits, Creating Connecticut will leave you thinking about our state’s past––and its future––in a whole new way.

Tell It Like It Isn’t by Dr. Lori L. Badura Book Resume:

The average person tells at least six lies a day – is it any wonder we struggle to sort fact from fiction in the modern world? Thanks to remarkable increases in the speed and ease of information sharing, the ability to critically judge the integrity of information around us is more necessary now than ever before. Luckily, it is possible for any individual to evaluate information in a much more critical fashion, based largely upon a simple process of deductive reasoning. This book explores the elements of truth and fiction across the expanse of our daily lives. Through examination of public figures and members of popular culture who have been caught in the act of deception, the reader is encouraged to consider what information can best be used to judge the legitimacy of any event, as well as considering our own culpability in perpetuating a culture of deceit. From the evolution of deception to the private fictions we tell ourselves, this book will guide the reader to a new perspective on the role of lying in modern society. Like Dan Ariely and Daniel Kahneman have opened our eyes to the fallibility of human judgment, Lori Badura opens our eyes to the psychological and social mechanisms that enable humans to distort the truth both consciously and unconsciously.” Daryl Wansink, PhD (social psychologist) Tell It Like It Isn’t is a fresh voice in the increasing debate surrounding the growing prevalence, impact, and tolerance of deception. She has brilliantly elevated the discussion to the level of our society, allowing us to consider the deceptive individual within the context of their environment. In my experience, it is rare to find psychological theory presented so clearly and compellingly. John C. Parker, PhD (social psychologist)

The founder of Seaside Shadows Haunted History Tours sheds light on the supernatural stories of the Constitution State. Bloody battlefields and raucous taverns in Connecticut served as the backdrop for pivotal figures and bold actions vital to the American Revolution. Nathan Hale is said to still conduct lessons in New London and East Haddam, and many suspect that George Washington occasionally visits the Shaw Mansion and Fairfield's Sun Tavern. The presence of notorious traitor Benedict Arnold is often felt in the Leffingwell Inn and at Ye Antientist Burial Ground in New London, where he commanded troops numbering 1,600 as a newly turned Loyalist. Picnickers claim to see apparitions of wounded soldiers seated among them at Fort Griswold in Groton. Step foot into a time when the Sons of Liberty, Tories and Patriots changed the course of history as author Courtney McInvale uncovers the Revolutionary haunts of Connecticut.
