You may recall the name Amy Sutherland from her 2006 essay in the New York Times: "What Shamu Taught Me About a Happy Marriage," which became the New York Times' most e-mailed article of the year. (We blogged on the maelstrom earlier.)
Now Sutherland has a new book out, What Shamu Taught Me About Life, Love and Marriage, which is enjoying a warm reception from the media. Don't miss Time Magazine's fascinating new interview with Sutherland. An excerpt:
"People often talk about how it's not right to manipulate other people's behavior, but it's already going on. So why not be more conscious and more productive about it? This is about using rewards instead of trying to change people's behavior by punishing them, or yelling at them or snapping at them."
