In the twenty-first century, humanity is reaching new heights of scientific understanding - and at the same time appears to be losing its mind. How can a species that discovered vaccines for Covid-19 in less than a year produce so much fake news, quack cures and conspiracy theorizing?
In Rationality, Pinker rejects the cynical cliché that humans are simply an irrational species - cavemen out of time fatally cursed with biases, fallacies and illusions. After all, we discovered the laws of nature, lengthened and enriched our lives and set the benchmarks for rationality itself. Instead, he explains, we think in ways that suit the low-tech contexts in which we spend most of our lives, but fail to take advantage of the powerful tools of reasoning we have built up over millennia: logic, critical thinking, probability, causal inference, and decision-making under uncertainty. These tools are not a standard part of our educational curricula, and have never been presented clearly and entertainingly in a single book - until now.

Rationality matters. It leads to better choices in our lives and in the public sphere, and is the ultimate driver of social justice and moral progress. Brimming with insight and humour, Rationality will enlighten, inspire and empower.

How to handle everything (and everyone) around you when all hell breaks loose, from the international bestselling author of Surrounded by Idiots.
Not everything goes the way we want it to - the world or people around us sometimes just spin out of control. Just consider the Covid pandemic for starters. Or how about that mad neighbour you have living next-door to you? Or when work seems to be going down the toilet when the competition keep outsmarting you? So how do you handle everything life throws your way when you'd really prefer to tell everyone to get stuffed?

Thomas Erikson will help you turn adversity into success with the help of the behavioural model made famous in Surrounded by Idiots. Starting by reminding us that life is as it is, Erikson helps you see that it is in fact useless to try to control everything happening around you. Instead of protesting when life throws you curveballs, focus instead on how to handle them. Just as you keep the weeds away from the garden to provide space and amazing flowers, you need to find an approach to adversity that works for you and will give you the chance to turn everything into success. Surrounded by Setbacks will help you pinpoint the approach that works for you and will entertain and empower you in equal measure.

A wonderfully liberating, perspective-shifting book about how we struggle with having too little time, and a life-enhancing approach to how we can spend our four thousand weeks - the average human life-span.

The average human lifespan is absurdly, outrageously, insultingly brief: if you live to 80, you have about four thousand weeks on earth. How should we use them best?

Of course, nobody needs telling that there isn't enough time. We're obsessed by our lengthening to-do lists, our overfilled inboxes, the struggle against distraction, and the sense that our attention spans are shrivelling. Yet we rarely make the conscious connection that these problems only trouble us in the first place thanks to the ultimate time-management problem: the challenge of how best to use our four thousand weeks.

Four Thousand Weeks is an uplifting, engrossing and deeply realistic exploration of this problem. Rejecting the futile modern obsession with 'getting everything done,' it introduces readers to tools for constructing a meaningful life, showing how the unhelpful ways we've come to think about time aren't inescapable, unchanging truths, but choices we've made, as individuals and as a society - and its many revelations will transform the reader's worldview.

Drawing on the insights of both ancient and contemporary philosophers, psychologists, and spiritual teachers, Oliver Burkeman sets out to realign our relationship with time - and in doing so, to liberate us from its grasp.

This book is, in many ways, a continuation of research on applied creativity by the authors. Am I clever or am I stupid was an international bestseller, as were Creativity Uncovered and The Ordinary Millionaire. What became apparent after my seven years of research on the potential of young children was that children in the age range 0-3 demonstrate, what we would call in this book, 'rich brain' qualities.

Often because of 'poor brain' parenting and education, children grow up believing that a rich brain life is just for a selected few. They start negating and dis-affirming their natural traits like creativity, passion, courage, and energy and follow common and traditional
pathways for which they are most rewarded. They are guided to think and making choices that preserve rather than enhance and enrich. We know, and what our research has proven time after time, is that children and adults of all ages and cultures do not lose their
ability to make 'rich brain' choices. These choices can be learned and taught.
In this book, we look at rich and poor brain choices when it comes to our finances. The authors unpack the typical 'poor brain' choices and then illustrate how you can change this disabling habit of choosing 'poor' when you do have the ability to choose 'rich'.
The poor brain choices within each dimension of the brain are identified
- these are the choices that shape and form our fixed mindset and beliefs. But we all have other rich brain options, and these options are clearly illustrated and unpacked.

Racism is not a simple matter of good people versus bad. In White Fragility, Robin DiAngelo explained how racism is a system into which all white people are socialized. She also made a provocative claim: that white progressives cause the most daily harm to people of colour. In Nice Racism, her follow-up work, she explains how they do so.
Drawing on her background as a sociologist and over twenty-five years working as an antiracist educator, she moves the conversation forward. Writing directly to white people as a white person, DiAngelo identifies many common racial patterns and breaks down how well-intentioned white people unknowingly perpetuate racial harm. These patterns include rushing to prove that we are 'not racist'; downplaying white advantage; romanticizing Black, Indigenous and other peoples of colour; pretending white segregation 'just happens'; expecting BIPOC people to teach us about racism; carefulness; and shame. She challenges the ideology of Individualism and explains why it is OK to generalize about white people, and demonstrates how white people who experience other oppressions still benefit from systemic racism. Writing candidly about her own missteps and struggles, she models a path forward, encouraging white readers to continually face their complicity and embrace courage, lifelong commitment and accountability.
Nice Racism is an essential work for any white person who wants to take steps to align their values with their actual practice, and offers people of colour an 'insider's' perspective which may be helpful for navigating whiteness.

A follow up from the bestselling Self-Compassion, this book shows why it is more urgent than ever that women acknowledge their areas of suffering, celebrate their inner voice and challenge the male-orientated status quo.
The book will draw on Kristin Neff's own life story as well as the stories of other women to show how readers can harness self-compassion and gain the strength, clarity and courage needed to be resilient and stand up for themselves in our male-dominated society.
She'll explore core issues such as gender differences, why we aren't more compassionate to themselves, and what women do for love. With expert research, concrete tools and easy-to-follow mindfulness practices, this book will empower women to let go of self-criticism, draw boundaries and become fierce.

Why don't we talk to strangers?
Has it always been this way?
And what benefits come when we do talk to strangers?
For the Greeks, proper treatment of strangers was a primary virtue, 'xenos'; and throughout the history of civilisation, the treatment of strangers has impacted the fate of whole cultures. But today we may still be surprised when someone we don't know is neither fool nor murderer.
In Strangers, Joe Keohane speaks to experts (historians, scientists, philosophers) and those who may be supremely skilled at talking to strangers (doctors, politicians, mental-health professionals) to uncover the surprising social and psychological benefits that come from mastering this social taboo. Research on commuters who were asked to talk to strangers on public transport, for example, showed that it is not only more pleasant than we think, but on the whole, welcomed too.
This deeply researched and accessible unified theory of the life of humans will make you reconsider how you perceive and approach strangers: even passing interactions can enhance empathy and happiness, and ease the isolation that is increasing today. Paradoxically, strangers can help us become more fully ourselves.

There's no place like home or work?
You probably don't realise this, but every working day you replay and re-enact conflicts, dynamics and relationships from your past. Whether it's confusing an authority figure with a parent; avoiding conflict because of past squabbles with siblings; or suffering from imposter syndrome because of the way your family responded to success, when it comes to work we are all trapped in our own upbringings and the patterns of behaviour we learned while growing up.
Many of us spend eighteen formative years or more living with family and building our personality, but most of us also spend fifty years - or 90,000 hours - in the workplace. With the pull of the familial so strong, we unconsciously re-enact our personal past in our professional present - even when it holds us back.
Through intimate stories, fascinating insights and provocative questions, business psychotherapist Naomi Shragai will transform how you think about yourself and your working life. Based on thirty years of expertise and practice, Shragaiwill shows you that what is holding you back is within your gift to change - and the first step is to realise how you, like the rest of the people you work with, habitually confuse your professional presence with your personal past.

I want to write as if I am free. This book is a story of an unfolding, of navigating embodiment as a nonhuman through the start of a literary career, through heartbreak, chronic pain, and an intimacy with death, of becoming a beast. Maybe this can be summarized as a spirit first literary memoir... It's what I look like when I'm not translating myself to become accessible, legible, because here, I am
already these things. Akwaeke Emezi writes to the formative people in their life about their ongoing struggles around the idea of the self, and the core concepts of love, family, gender, home, faith, and success. The result is a black spirit memoir: a powerful, raw unfolding of identity.
