About the Author

W. M. Bernstein is a noted scientist trained in biology, social and organizational psychology, psychoanalysis, and psychopharmacology. He worked as a management consultant in the United States, United Kingdom, and Europe until 2001. Currently, he works in Albuquerque, New Mexico, as a medical psychologist and neuroscience writer. His recent books are A Basic Theory of Neuropsychoanalysis (2011) and The Realisation of Concepts: Infinity, Cognition, and Health (2014).

This book grew from irritation with changes in everyday habits of thinking and speaking that developed at the end of the Cold War in 1989. People began shrieking “Oh my God!” upon the most minor happenings. Instead of saying “Your Welcome” after being thanked, now everyone replies, “No, Thank You!” What the hell happened? Sophistication tries to answer these questions and others using science, commonsense, and an arch sense of humor.
