• Talking to Strangers What We Should Know About the People We Don't Know
    Talking to Strangers What We Should Know About the People We Don't Know
    The routine traffic stop that ends in tragedy. The spy who spends years undetected at the highest levels of the Pentagon. The false conviction of Amanda Knox. Why do we so often get other people wrong? Why is it so hard to detect a lie, read a face or judge a stranger's motives?

    Through a series of encounters and misunderstandings - from history, psychology and infamous legal cases - Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual adventure into the darker side of human nature, where strangers are never simple and misreading them can have disastrous consequences.

    No one challenges our shared assumptions like Malcolm Gladwell. Here he uses stories of deceit and fatal errors to cast doubt on our strategies for dealing with the unknown, inviting us to rethink our thinking in these troubled times.

  • Think Like a Monk Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Everyday
    Think Like a Monk Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Everyday
    Jay Shetty, social media superstar and host of the #1 podcast 'On Purpose', distils the timeless wisdom he learned as a practising monk into practical steps anyone can take every day to live a less anxious, more meaningful life.

    Over the past three years, Jay Shetty has become a favourite in the hearts and minds of millions of people worldwide. One of his clips was the most watched video on Facebook last year, with over 360 million views. His social media following totals over 32 million, he has produced over 400 viral videos, which have amassed more than 5 billion views, and his podcast, 'On Purpose', is consistently ranked the world's #1 health-related podcast.

    In this inspiring, empowering book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Vedic tradition to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Drawing on ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us.

    The lessons monks learn are profound but often abstract. Shetty transforms them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can - and should - think like a monk.

    This zoological and photographic odyssey documents the cutest, cuddliest and silliest animals of all time, to brighten up the days of us humans across the world.

    As its name subtly suggests, this book features 90 pictures of excessively cute animals. That's Literally it. While turning these puppy-peppered pages, your mood will Literally become one of delight and tenderness. And therein lies the powerful magic of pictures of cute animals.

  • This One Wild and Precious Life Our Path Forward in a Fractured World
    This One Wild and Precious Life Our Path Forward in a Fractured World
    Will you sleep through the revolution? Or do you want to wake up and reclaim your one wild and precious life?

    We live in truly overwhelming times. The climate crisis, political polarisation, racial injustice and coronavirus have left many of us in a state of spiritual PTSD. We have retreated, morally and psychologically; we are experiencing a crisis of disconnection - from one another, from our true values, from joy, and from life as we feel we are meant to be living it.

    Sarah Wilson argues that this sense of despair and disconnection is ironically what unites us - that deep down, we are all feeling that same itch for a new way of living. this one wild and precious life opens our eyes to how we got here and offers a radically hopeful path forward. Drawing on science, literature, philosophy, the wisdom of some of the world's leading experts, and her personal journey, Wilson weaves a one-of-a-kind narrative that lights the way back to the life we love. En route, she leads us through a series of 'wildly awake' and joyful practices for reconnecting again that include:

    - Go to your edge. Do what scares you and embrace discomfort daily. Use it to grow into your Big Life.
    - #buylesslivemore. Break the cycle of mindless consumption and get light with your life.
    - Become a soul nerd. Embrace poetry, deep reading, art, and classical music to light up your intellect.
    - Get 'full-fat spiritual'. How to have an active practice - beyond the 'lite' 'rainbows and unicorns' - and use it to change the world.
    - Hike. Just hike. Walking in nature reconnects us with ourselves, and with our true purpose.
    - Practise wild activism. If you can get 3.5 per cent of a population to participate in sustained, non-violent protest, change happens. We create our better world.

    The time has come to boldly, wildly, imagine better. We are being called upon, individually and as a society, to forge a new path and to find a new way of living. Will you join the journey?
