Two more volumes are reported to be forthcoming in this analysis based on the author's multiple discrepancies theory (outlined in v.1) and an international university undergraduate database of some 18,000 cases drawn from 39 countries (the data-set is available for an additional charge). Each volume deals with different aspects of life experience; v.2 treats the subjects announced in the subtitle in discrete chapters, with appendices quantifying the data. Annotation c.
