Elliott Bay Book Company says
Science writer and poet Brian Christian (author of The Most Human Human, a New Yorker favorite book of the year) makes this welcome Elliott Bay return to speak about his new book, Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions (Henry Holt), written with Tom Griffiths, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Computational Cognitive Science Lab at UC Berkeley.

“The value of being aware of algorithmic thinking--of the thornier details of "human algorithm design”--is not just better problem solving, but also greater insight into the human mind. And who doesn't want to know how we tick? The authors lead us into the labyrinth with lessons on such matters as improved search and sort--sorting being "key to the human experience of information," and thus a good thing to ponder, whether on how to organize your T-shirt drawer or your dissertation.”-Kirkus.
