White Bears and Other Unwanted Thoughts

Daniel M. Wegner, Author Penguin Books $9.95 (224p) ISBN 978-0-14-011599-4
When subjects in a psychology experiment were told not to think about a white bear, their minds, naturally, filled up with white furry images. ``This rewarding and informal essay takes a fresh, unconventional look at the ways we deal with unwanted thoughts and relates those mental processes to mood swings, addictions, depression and day-to-day survival,'' maintained PW.
