‘Stats and Curiosities from Harvard Business Review’

Did you know that more men than women are ashamed of their wages, and consumers of both genders are repelled by worn-out money and want to spend it? Or that background noise and a glimpse of green can make you more creative? In “Stats and Curiosities from Harvard Business Review” (Harvard Business School), Andrew O’Connell offers one-paragraph summaries of 165 studies that have been highlighted in the Review’s Daily Stat, an online digest of new research in business, economics, and psychology. Who knows what the value of these studies is, but they make for fun reading.
