    Children are born curious, creative, and wired to learn—and we value those traits in adults! Still, as our children grow up, we often insist they change to fit into the education system, where curiosity is replaced by curricula, creativity by conformity, and learning by memorizing. 
    But if you’d rather nurture your children’s curiosity, creativity, and love of learning, let me introduce you to the world of unschooling.  
    In this audiobook, we’ll explore some of the common questions people have when they first hear about unschooling: 
    What is unschooling? 
    How will my child learn? 
    Without a curriculum, what will they learn? 
    How do I know they’re learning? 
    Will unschooling work for my child? 
    But what if my child already has trouble at school? 
    What is deschooling? 
    How do I get started? 
    Life in the real world is much bigger and more exciting than a school can contain within its four walls. If you're ready to embrace life and eager to share its wonder with your children, unschooling might be for you!

    This sobering look at the future of warfare predicts that conflicts will now be fought over diminishing supplies of our most precious natural resources.From the barren oilfields of Central Asia to the lush Nile delta, from the busy shipping lanes of the South China Sea to the uranium mines and diamond fields of sub-Saharan Africa, Resource Wars looks at the growing impact of resource scarcity on the military policies of nations. International security expert Michael T. Klare argues that in the early decades of the new millennium wars will be fought not over ideology but over resources, as states battle to control dwindling supplies of precious natural commodities. The political divisions of the Cold War, Klare asserts, are giving way to an immense global scramble for essential materials, such as oil, timber, minerals, and water. And as armies throughout the world define resource security as their primary mission, widespread instability is bound to follow, especially in those places where resource competition overlaps with long-standing disputes over territorial rights.A much-needed assessment of a changed world, Resource Wars is a compelling look at the future of warfare in an era of heightened environmental stress and accelerated economic competition.

    In The Changing Face of the Workplace, the editors of Fast Company examine how work and the workplace will be forever changed by the pandemic. Through engaging interviews with business thought leaders, CEOs, technologists, workplace experts, and human behavior researchers, listeners learn how societal and demographic shifts—and the evolving relationship between companies and employees—are shaping the workforce. Among other key issues, the audiobook also explores how even the most progressive employers must fight to ensure that the changes wrought by COVID-19 don’t disenfranchise workers. In a future workplace where many coworkers use hybrid work setups, or operate entirely remotely, how do companies collaborate or recreate the kind of serendipity that has led to so much ingenuity? What shape will these critical gatherings take in the future? How do leaders ensure that the future of work—with its patchwork of in-person and remote options and its push to deeper automation of entry-level tasks—fosters an inclusive, collaborative, and even thriving environment? The Changing Face of the Workplace addresses these questions and more as the editors of Fast Company explore what the workplace of tomorrow will look like—and how leaders in innovation, productivity, and creativity see the road map ahead.
