the one book i've picked up this week.

The Compass of Pleasure: How Our Brains Make Fatty Foods, Orgasm, Exercise, Marijuana, Generosity, Vodka, Learning, and Gambling Feel So Good, bu David J. Linden.  This sounds like it would be right up my road-- I ordered it, in fact (612.8)-- I only read 20 or so pages.  The prose part, the story part, is kind of dry and then the author launches into some heavy brain science that would require a pencil for me to keep track of.  Not what I want during my lunch break.
