The Learning Game
Teaching Kids to Think for Themselves, Embrace Challenge, and Love Learning
Ana Lorena Fábrega - 2023-09-05
Рейтинг Goodreads
How did we conclude that the best way to prepare kids for the future is to cluster them into classrooms by age and grade, forcing them to learn the same things, at the same time and pace, seven hours a day, five days a week, for twelve years?...

"Experience a hilarious new picture book for all ages from the Caldecott Medal-winning author of the Hat Trilogy. Follow Turtle and Armadillo as they navigate the complexities of friendship, fate, and a strange feeling that something's not quite right. With broad visual suspense and witty humor, this deadpan gem by Jon Klassen is a wholly original comedy that is not to be missed."

The Reality Game
How the Next Wave of Technology Will Break the Truth
Samuel Woolley - 2020-01-07
Рейтинг Goodreads
This urgent book by Samuel Woolley explores the impact of online disinformation on our everyday lives beyond social media. With the rise of humanlike automated voice systems, machine learning, and "deepfake" AI-edited videos, these technologies have the power not just to manipulate our politics but to make us doubt our eyes and ears. However, Woolley argues for a new culture of innovation built around accountability and transparency to prevent future manipulation. The Reality Game will inspire readers to use our new tools not to control people but to empower them.

Американская писательница Ханья Янагихара создала необычный роман, где и о страшном, и о радостном говорится без лишнего надрыва и сентиментальности. Четверо друзей - талантливый архитектор Малкольм, начинающий актер Виллем, уверенный в собственной неповторимости художник Джей-Би и гениальный юрист и математик Джуд - пытаются добиться успеха в Нью-Йорке, но оказывается, что ни карьера, ни деньги, ни слава не могут справиться с прошлым, если оно сильнее жизни…

@rhondakap @kellymcgonigal If you haven't read this only read it if you want to be emotionally brutalized. Virtuoso portrayal of compassion but Jesus you could not make worse things happen to your characters. Almost sadistic. Amazing book but traumatic read      источник
