"Every programming language has its quirks. This lively book reveals oddities of the Java programming language through entertaining and thought-provoking programming puzzles." --Guy Steele, Sun Fellow and coauthor of The Java(TM) Language Specification "I laughed, I cried, I threw up (my hands in admiration)." --Tim Peierls, president, Prior Artisans LLC, and member of the JSR 166 Expert Group How well do you really know Java? Are you a code sleuth? Have you ever spent days chasing a bug caused by a trap or pitfall in Java or its libraries? Do you like brainteasers? Then this is the book for you! In the tradition of Effective Java(TM), Bloch and Gafter dive deep into the subtleties of the Java programming language and its core libraries. Illustrated with visually stunning optical illusions, Java(TM) Puzzlers features 95 diabolical puzzles that educate and entertain. Anyone with a working knowledge of Java will understand the puzzles, but even the most seasoned veteran will find them challenging. Most of the puzzles take the form of a short program whose behavior isn't what it seems. Can you figure out what it does? Puzzles are grouped loosely according to the features they use, and detailed solutions follow each puzzle. The solutions go well beyond a simple explanation of the program's behavior--they show you how to avoid the underlying traps and pitfalls for good. A handy catalog of traps and pitfalls at the back of the book provides a concise taxonomy for future reference. Solve these puzzles and you'll never again fall prey to the counterintuitive or obscure behaviors that can fool even the most experienced programmers.

Studies in Forensic Psychiatry: The Complete Wo...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Studies in Forensic Psychiatry is the product of extensive research into the psychological motivations for criminal behavior. Bernard Glueck draws his conclusions from a huge wealth of experience with the criminally insane and with the public health care systems. He recognized the need for criminology to be expanded to reflect a deeper understanding of motive and inclination on the part of the criminal, rather than being considered solely in terms of the criminal act itself. He also felt that further understanding of motivations would help to identify the criminal type and address their treatment and care in a manner more fitting to the needs of both society and the individual. As a result of Glueck's efforts, the psychoanalytic school of society experienced a revival in both theory and therapeutic usage. The full narration of the text is preceded by a summary which examines the life of the author and the background of the work itself. Also included are an overview, synopsis, and analysis of the work. The summary is concluded with a section which explores the historical context, criticisms, and social impact of Glueck's work. This work stands as a landmark piece in the evolution of the current approach to mental dysfunction in the field of criminology. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carrie Steele.

Self-Affirmation
34,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The theory of self-affirmation is a psychological theory that was first proposed by Claude Steele (1988) with the premise that people are motivated to maintain the integrity of the self. The ultimate goal of the self is to protect an image of its self-integrity, morality and adequacy. On the whole, integrity is defined as the sense that one is a good and appropriate person and the term "appropriate" refers to behavior that is fitting or suitable given the cultural norms and the salient demands on people within their culture. This theory explains why people respond in such a way to restore self-worth when their image of self-integrity is threatened. In this theory, people would respond to the threat using the indirect psychological adaptation of affirming alternative self resources unrelated to the provoking threat.

Gambling and Alcohol
35,90 € *

Alcohol Myopia theory (Steele & Josephs, 1990) states that the behavior of intoxicated individuals is disproportionally influenced by the most salient cues in a given situation. Alcohol leads to higher goal commitment if the desirability is salient, despite low chances of success (Sevincer & Oettingen, 2009). The reverse is true if low chances are made salient (Sevincer, Oettingen, & Lerner, 2012). We wanted to explore if the difference between the effects of alcohol intoxication and a placebo on gambling persistence could depend on the salience of the potential high jackpots and the low chances of attaining those. Furthermore, this study set out to test if peoples' dispositional sensitivity to reward should influence gamblers persistence. Intoxicated subjects (vs. sober) filled out a BIS/BAS-scale (Carver & White, 1994) and performed a gambling task. Those primed with a salient low winning chance played significantly less trials than equivalently primed sober persons. We did not find an effect of reward sensitivity. The results have practical implications for reducing gambling behavior under the influence of alcohol.
