    Nobody likes being fooled, but sometimes it seems the whole world that falls for it. Tonight Scott Cluthe interviews Jonathan Maxwell, author of “Piltdown Man and Other Hoaxes.” 
    The new book explores scientific frauds through history. It focuses especially on the Piltdown Man Hoax, which is sometimes casually called the Missing Link Hoax. 
    In the early 1900s, a group of men unearthed a human cranium and jaw from an excavation in Piltdown, England. Soon, many scientists hailed the discovery as being Charles Darwin’s “Missing Link.” Decades later, the discovery was revealed to be an elaborate hoax.  The cranium came from a thoroughly modern human being, while the jaw came simply from an ordinary ape. In the process, the fraud cast a dark shadow on the emerging scientific field of paleoanthropology, the study of human origins.
    Maxwell’s book examines other frauds as well, including those involving Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman, lake monsters, mermaids, and Atlantis.
    Maxwell holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Berry College, along with a psychology minor. At present, he is enrolled at Jacksonville State University in Alabama.  His first book, “Murderous Intellectuals: German Elites and the Nazi SS,” received the 2011 Allbooks Review Editor’s Choice Award in the Category of Best Non-fiction Book.

    Scott Cluthe talks with Spiritual teacher and author Isha Judd Tuesday night.  
    Her new book, Love Has Wings begins by examining the most common fear-based illusions that we cling to, such as "There Is Not Enough" or "Comfort Is King." Once we become aware that these beliefs are illusions, we can take steps to diminish their negative effects.
     The book gives us direct ways to remedy three aspects of life that people often bemoan: the daily grind, insecurity and loneliness, and the uncertainly of a world in crisis. For anyone caught in the storms of modern life — whether they rage inside or out — Isha's brilliant perspective on life, love, and success is the perfect medicine.

    The Creativity Cure on Scott Cluthe's Positively Incorrect!

    in Books

    Scott Cluthe talks with The Creativity Cure authors Alton & Carrie Barron, who are also both M.D.'s.
    CARRIE (GRACE CAROLINE) BARRON, M.D., is a board-certified psychiatrist/psychoanalyst on the clinical faculty of the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons who also has a private practice in New York City. 
    ALTON BARRON, M.D., is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and is currently the President of the New York Society for Surgery of the Hand. He has been a surgeon for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and Metropolitan Opera for more than a decade. Dr. Barron is a consultant for CBS and has appeared multiple times on the CBS Early Show. 
    In THE CREATIVITY CURE: A Do-It-Yourself Prescription for Happiness, husband-and-wife physicians Carrie and Alton Barron draw upon the latest psychological research, a combined forty years of medical practice, and personal experience to reveal that creative action is integral to easing depression and anxiety and to fueling long-term happiness and wellbeing.  The need to create – to produce something using our minds and hands – is fundamental.  It connects us to our inner selves and to our environment and offers the deep satisfaction of accomplishment.  But too often, in our technology driven, fast-paced society, we neglect this need. The Barrons show that creative processes facilitate insight and healing, connect our mental and physical selves, supply satisfaction and meaning and thereby yield life changing results.
    The five steps of THE CREATIVITY CURE—Insight, Movement, Mind Rest, Using Your Own Two Hands, and Mind Shift—lead the way to a more meaningful, fulfilling life.
    Also tonight a Best of Repeat with Eric Maisel on Overcoming Creative Anxiety.
