  • Increasingly, we are coming to see difference, whether in the form of conflicting values or growing ethnic diversity, as an existential threat. Within much of the world, our main response has been to surround ourselves with like-minded people and double down on our own convictions, in an attempt to hold difference at bay. So, how did we get here, and what can we do about it? Here, anthropologist Farhan Samanani combines case studies from across the world with his own research to provide insights into the capacity of humankind to connect across divides. Using his anthropologist''s toolkit, he explores the roots of our present tensions and casts fresh light on how we can cultivate common ground, build healthy communities and not just live but flourish together.

  • STOLEN FOCUS - WHY YOU CAN''T PAY ATTENTION

    Johann Hari

    • Bloomsbury uk
    • 6 Janvier 2022

    Part of the experience of being alive in the twenty-first century is the feeling that your attention span is collapsing, along with those of everyone around you - including your children.

    Why have we lost our ability to focus? What are the causes? And - most importantly - how do we get it back?

    In Stolen Focus , internationally bestselling author Johann Hari sets out on a global investigative journey into our shortening attention spans. He tells us what he learned from spending three months off the internet, reveals the inside story of the war to grab our attention that is waged every day, and explores why those prescribing mood stimulants to 10% of children in schools are getting it so wrong.

    Drawing on more than two hundred interviews with the world''s leading experts on attention problems, Stolen Focus moves beyond individual solutions towards a collective understanding of a problem facing us all. Only by first solving the attention crisis, Hari argues, can we turn to fixing the issues we care about most - and sustain the attention to build a better society.>

    Hans Rosling

    • Flatiron books
    • 10 Novembre 2020

    "This is a book that contains very few numbers. Instead, it is about meeting people who have opened my eyes." It was facts that helped him explain how the world works. But it was curiosity and commitment that made the late Hans Rosling, co-author of the bestselling book Factfulness , the most popular researcher of our time. How I Learned to Understand the World is Hans Rosling's own story, which he wrote while working on Factfulness in the months before his death, of how he became a revolutionary thinker, and takes us from the swelter of an emergency clinic in Mozambique, to the World Economic Forum at Davos. In collaboration with Swedish journalist Fanny Hargestam, Hans Rosling wrote his memoir with the same joy of storytelling that made a whole world listen when he spoke.

  • The bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals examines the critical art of rethinking: learning to question your opinions and open other people''s minds, which can position you for excellence at work and wisdom in life Intelligence is usually seen as the ability to think and learn, but in a rapidly changing world, there''s another set of cognitive skills that might matter more: the ability to rethink and unlearn. In recent months, the pandemic has forced us all to reevaluate our assumptions about health and safety and multiple acts of police brutality have challenged most of us to reconsider our responsibility for fighting racism. Yet in our daily lives, too many of us still favor the comfort of conviction over the discomfort of doubt. We listen to opinions that make us feel good, instead of ideas that make us think hard. We see disagreement as a threat to our egos, rather than an opportunity to learn. We surround ourselves with people who agree with our conclusions, when we should be gravitating toward those who challenge our thought process. The result is that our beliefs get brittle long before our bones. Intelligence is no cure, and it can even be a curse: there''s evidence that being good at thinking can make us worse at rethinking. The brighter we are, the blinder we can become to our own limitations. As an organizational psychologist, Adam Grant has spent his career exploring how we can open other people''s minds--and our own. As Wharton''s top-rated professor and the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take , one of his guiding principles in life is arguing like he''s right but listening like he''s wrong. With bold ideas and rigorous evidence, he investigates how we can embrace the joy of being wrong, harness the surprising advantages of impostor syndrome, bring nuance into charged conversations about abortion and climate change, and build schools, workplaces, and communities of lifelong learners. You''ll learn how an international debate champion wins arguments, a Black musician persuades white supremacists to abandon hate, a vaccine whisperer convinces anti-vaxxers to immunize their children, and how Adam has coaxed Yankees fans to root for the Red Sox. Think Again reveals that we don''t have to believe everything we think or internalize everything we feel. It''s an invitation to let go of views that are no longer serving us well and prize mental flexibility, humility, and curiosity over foolish consistency. If knowledge is power, knowing what we don''t know is wisdom.

  • 'Full of charm and fascination' The Bookseller 'Would dazzle any storyteller in love with words and their deepest meanings' Amy Tan, author of Joy Luck Club 'A generous book and a beguiling read' Rebecca Gowers * * * * * * From the bestselling author of Born on a Blue Day and Thinking in Numbers , a delightful and eclectic exploration of language, and what it can teach us about ourselves and our lives. Why is the name 'Cleopatra' not allowed in Iceland? Why do clocks 'talk' to the Nahua people of Mexico? And if we are what we eat, are we also what we say? These are just some of the questions Daniel Tammet answers in Every Word is a Bird We Teach to Sing , a mesmerising new collection of essays investigating the intricacies and profound power of human language. Tammet goes back in time to explore the numeric language of his autistic childhood; he looks at the music and patterns that words make, and how languages evolve and are translated. He meets one of the world's most accomplished lip readers in Canada, learns how endangered languages like Manx are being revived and corresponds with native speakers of Esperanto in their mother tongue. He studies the grammar of the telephone, contemplates the significance of disappearing dialects, and also asks: will chatbots ever manage to convince us that they are human? From the art of translation to the lyricism of sign language, Every Word is a Bird We Teach to Sing is a fascinating journey through the world of words, letters, stories and meanings, and an extraordinary testament to the stunning range of Tammet's literary and polyglot talents.

  • HOW TO HAVE FEMINIST SEX - A FAIRLY GRAPHIC GUIDE

    Flo Perry

    • Penguin books uk
    • 27 Août 2020

    We talk about feminism in the workplace and we talk about dating after #MeToo, but women's own patriarchal conditioning can be the hardest enemy to defeat. When it comes to our sex lives, few of us are free of niggling fears and body image insecurities. Rather than enjoying and exploring our bodies uninhibited, we worry about our bikini lines, bulging tummies and whether we're doing it 'right'. Flo broaches everything from faking it to consent, stress to kink, and how losing your virginity isn't so different to eating your first chocolate croissant. Her mission is to get more people talking openly about what they do and don't want from every romantic encounter.
