    From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.” 
    One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us? 
    Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas. 
    Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become? 
    Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

    "The economization of our entire lifespan and the apparent compulsion to constant self-optimization are dead ends into which the dynamics of the market economy have led us. Julian Poerksen asks how we might re-emerge from this state and, drawing on the speculative approaches of Georges Bataille, Walter Benjamin, Michel Foucault, and Friedrich Schiller, recommends an investment in its antithesis: the waste of time and talent without guilt feelings and bad conscience. This is fun to read and leaves you with the exhilarating feeling that you are witnessing a long overdue liberation process." Carl Hegemann

    This concise book introduces nonphysicists to the core philosophical issues surrounding the nature and structure of space and time, and is also an ideal resource for physicists interested in the conceptual foundations of space-time theory. Tim Maudlin's broad historical overview examines Aristotelian and Newtonian accounts of space and time, and traces how Galileo's conceptions of relativity and space-time led to Einstein's special and general theories of relativity. Maudlin explains special relativity with enough detail to solve concrete physical problems while presenting general relativity in more qualitative terms. Additional topics include the Twins Paradox, the physical aspects of the Lorentz-FitzGerald contraction, the constancy of the speed of light, time travel, the direction of time, and more. 
      Introduces nonphysicists to the philosophical foundations of space-time theory  Provides a broad historical overview, from Aristotle to Einstein  Explains special relativity geometrically, emphasizing the intrinsic structure of space-time  Covers the Twins Paradox, Galilean relativity, time travel, and more  Requires only basic algebra and no formal knowledge of physics

    Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials. Can they ever really understand each other? Probably not, but Mother of Millennials is a great place to start.
     
    The book provides a fascinating cross-generational look at life through the eyes of one mother and her two Millennial daughters. It explores how attitudes towards important themes have changed over the last half a century; themes such mental illness, the environment, veganism, LGBT rights, equality, corporate responsibility and many others.
     
    The authors reach the inescapable conclusion that, far from being the lazy, entitled narcissists they are often portrayed as, Millennials are in fact bringing about a kinder, caring more inclusive world.
     
    Whatever your age, you’re sure to find something of interest.
     
    If you’re a parent (or indeed any older relative) of a Millennial, you’ll find the book a useful guide to explaining their world.
     
    If you’re living in the shadow of mental illness, Sally’s painfully honest story may help you discover how to find rewarding work, happiness, and purpose in life.
     
    If you’re a Millennial stuck in unfulfilling employment, Harriet’s story may provide the inspiration you need to change your path.
