Summary

"Manu Saadia has managed to show us one more reason, perhaps the most compelling one of all, why we all need the world of Star Trek to one day become the world we live in." — Chris Black, Writer and Co-Executive Producer, Star Trek: Enterprise

 What would the world look like if everybody had everything they wanted or needed? Trekonomics, the premier book in financial journalist Felix Salmon's imprint PiperText, approaches scarcity economics by coming at it backwards — through thinking about a universe where scarcity does not exist. Delving deep into the details and intricacies of 24th century society, Trekonomics explores post-scarcity and whether we, as humans, are equipped for it. What are the prospects of automation and artificial intelligence? Is there really no money in Star Trek? Is Trekonomics at all possible?

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
    Joseph Murphy was born in Ireland, the son of a private boy's school headmaster and raised a Roman Catholic. He studied for the priesthood and joined the Jesuits. In his twenties, an experience with healing prayer led him to leave the Jesuits and move to the United States, where he became a pharmacist in New York (having a degree in chemistry by that time). Here he attended the Church of the Healing Christ (part of the Church of Divine Science), where Emmet Fox had become minister in 1931.
    In the mid 1940s, he moved to Los Angeles, where he met Religious Science founder Ernest Holmes, and was ordained into Religious Science by Holmes in 1946, thereafter teaching at the Institute of Religious Science. A meeting with Divine Science Association president Erwin Gregg led to him being reordained into Divine Science, and he became the minister of the Los Angeles Divine Science Church in 1949, which he built into one of the largest New Thought congregations in the country. In the next decade, Murphy married, earned a PhD in psychology from the University of Southern California and started writing. After his first wife died in 1976, he remarried to a fellow Divine Science minister who was his longstanding secretary. He died in 1981.

    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.

    Were you raised by a mother who put her needs and wants before yours? Does your mother make you think that her love is conditional, and that it will be stripped of you if you don't meet her expectations? Does your mother consistently make you feel inadequate, empty and riddled with sadness? Does she always seem to disappoint you, making you feel worthless and abandoned by her?  
    I know all of the above feelings all too well. I was brought up by a narcissistic mother, and know just how heartbreaking it can be to still feel like that scared child, even as an adult. I've been through decades of being subjected to my mothers narcissism, and it was only when I hit my lowest point that my survival instinct kicked in: I either cut ties with my mother, or I developed ways to deal with her hurtful, damaging behavior. Neither option was going to be easy, but both were going to ensure I could heal, find my self-worth for the first time, and begin to thrive. I would no longer be living in her shadow. Dealing with your narcissistic mother means taking back control.  
    In this book, I'll guide you through the following: 
    - Grieving the loss of the mother you never had 
    - Processing your emotions 
    - Setting your boundaries 
    - Guarding yourself against gaslighting 
    - Protecting your feelings 
    - Confronting the possibility of cutting ties 
    - How to cut ties if you choose to  
    On the path towards becoming stronger and confronting the narcissistic abuse you've endured, the biggest hurdle you'll face is undoubtedly the relationship you have with your mother. To help you find your worth and flourish, I want to show you how to deal with your narcissistic mother now that you're an adult.
