My attention has been brought to the following device, invented and  
patented by Dr Durrell, which, it is suggested, can be worn with  
advantage while reviewing books one has not read and when accepting  
money for the service not provided.  Apparently several have already  
been installed at the Durrell School of Corfu whence issued the  
pronouncement by its director that 'Professional reviewers must skim  
other than the most notable titles otherwise they can't do the work  
they are paid for' -- the implication being that the official biography  
of Lawrence Durrell is not, in the eyes of the director of the DSC, a  
'notable title'.  I trust the DSC has the appropriate software.

> A system and method that allows a person to comprehensively and  
> non-verbally express their present, past and anticipated future  
> emotional responses regarding all aspects of their life including  
> relationships, work, study, memories and experiences. The system  
> relies on a method wherein the person can graphically represent their  
> mood state by depicting the proportion that each of a number of  
> primary moods contributes to the mood state for any nominated aspect  
> of their life. The system provides some guidance regarding healthy and  
> unhealthy mixes of these primary moods thereby allowing early  
> identification of vulnerable mood states which without intervention  
> may progress to mood disorders. In a clinical setting, the invention  
> may be valuable in monitoring treatment response, sub-typing mood  
> related diagnoses, measuring therapist-patient empathy, establishing  
> treatment goals and as a therapeutic tool in emotionally focussed  
> psychotherapy. The method can be performed using and electronic  
> device, such as a computer, running appropriate software.
