    Art of the Wasted Day
    A sharp and unconventional book - a swirl of memoir, travelogue and biography of some of history's champion day-dreamers." -Maureen Corrigan, "Fresh Air" A spirited inquiry into the lost value of leisure and daydream The Art of the Wasted Day is a picaresque travelogue of leisure written from a lifelong enchantment with solitude. Patricia Hampl visits the homes of historic exemplars of ease who made repose a goal, even an art form. She begins with two celebrated eighteenth-century Irish ladies who ran off to live a life of "retirement" in rural Wales. Her search then leads to Moravia to consider the monk-geneticist, Gregor Mendel, and finally to Bordeaux for Michel Montaigne--the hero of this book--who retreated from court life to sit in his chateau tower and write about whatever passed through his mind, thus inventing the personal essay. Hampl's own life winds through these pilgrimages, from childhood days lazing under a neighbor's beechnut tree, to a fascination with monastic life, and then to love--and the loss of that love which forms this book's silver thread of inquiry. Finally, a remembered journey down the Mississippi near home in an old cabin cruiser with her husband turns out, after all her international quests, to be the great adventure of her life. The real job of being human, Hampl finds, is getting lost in thought, something only leisure can provide. The Art of the Wasted Day is a compelling celebration of the purpose and appeal of letting go.

  • Atlas of Disease  Mapping Deadly Epidemics and Contagion from the Plague to the Zika Virus
    Atlas of Disease Mapping Deadly Epidemics and Contagion from the Plague to the Zika Virus
    Behind every disease is a story, a complex narrative woven of multiple threads, from the natural history of the disease, to the tale of its discovery and its place in history. But what is vital in all of this is how the disease spreads and develops. In The Atlas of Disease, Sandra Hempel reveals how maps have uncovered insightful information about the history of disease, from the seventeenth century plague maps that revealed the radical idea that diseases might be carried and spread by humans, to cholera maps in the 1800s showing the disease was carried by water, right up to the AIDs epidemic in the 1980s and the recent Ebola outbreak.
    Crucially, The Atlas of Disease will also explore how cartographic techniques have been used to combat epidemics by revealing previously hidden patterns. These discoveries have changed the course of history, affected human evolution, stimulated advances in medicine and shaped countless lives.

  • Bad Advice How to Survive and Thrive in an Age of Bullshit
    Bad Advice How to Survive and Thrive in an Age of Bullshit
    Los Angeles Times #1 Bestseller

    USA Today Bestselling Book

    Over motivational messages Sick AF of inspirational quotes Done with the shiny happy bad advice that gets you nowhere Well, heads up: you're about to get a shitload of Good Advice.

    In Bad Advice, relationship expert Dr. Venus Nicolino-a.k.a. Dr. V-takes a blowtorch to the shrink-wrapped, "feel good" BS that passes for self-help these days.

    When you're heartbroken, what do you hear You can't love anyone until you love yourself. When someone's hurt you Nobody can make you feel bad without your permission. When you're just a little too positive Expectations lead to disappointment.

    Pop culture noise gives Bad Advice the varnish of truthiness and inspiration. But it's not truth; it's not inspiration. It's bullshit. And at its root, all Bad Advice operates off the same lie: Emotions are optional. In Bad Advice, Dr. V delivers a bracing truth serum, in the form of Good Advice-an antidote to the bullshit, from "Just Be Yourself" to "Live Each Day Like It's Your Last," that teaches you to live your life in a way that honors who you are, what you need, and how you feel.

    Smart and irreverent, Dr. V fuses the brains and insight of a nerdy Ph.D. with the heart of a doting Italian Mother and the artful profanity of a Philly trucker. Dr. V's signature combination of humor, hard science, and heart make Bad Advice an iconoclastic course-correction like no other. A fiercely sharp wake-up call that tackles some of self-help's most damaging truisms, Bad Advice is a never shy guide to tapping into your full potential.

  • Be Fearless 5 Principles for a Life of Breakthroughs and Purpose
    Be Fearless 5 Principles for a Life of Breakthroughs and Purpose
    In this nationally bestselling "must-read for leaders who are seeking an inspirational road map...in today's challenging climate" (Forbes), philanthropist, investor, and technology pioneer Jean Case brings to life the five Be Fearless principles common to the people and organizations that change the world.

    This book is a call to action for those seeking to live extraordinary lives and bring about transformational change.

    When National Geographic Chairman Jean Case set out to investigate the core qualities of great change makers, past and present, from inventors to revolutionaries, she found five surprising traits all had in common. They weren't wealth, privilege, or even genius. It was that all of these exceptional men and women chose to make a "big bet," take bold risks, learn from their failures, reach beyond their bubbles, and let urgency conquer fear.

    Throughout Be Fearless, Jean vividly illustrates these principles through storytelling-from her own transformational life experiences, to Jane Goodall's remarkable breakthroughs in understanding and protecting chimpanzees, to celebrity chef Jose Andres's decision to be a "first responder" and take his kitchen to the sites of devastating hurricanes to feed the hungry, to Madam C.J. Walker's vision to build a hair care empire that would employ thousands across the country, and more. She shares new insights to stories you might think you know-like Airbnb's tale of starting from scratch to transform the hospitality industry, to John F. Kennedy's history-making moonshot-gems from changemakers you've never heard of, and, in a new afterword, stories of people inspired to take action after reading the book.

    Be Fearless "is a welcome kick in the pants for anyone who feels stuck in their career" (Business Insider). Weaving together storytelling, practical tips, and inspiration, the book teaches you how to put the five fearless principles to work so that you too can spark the sorts of remarkable breakthroughs that change the world.
