Everyday Vitality book cover
Everyday Vitality
Turning Stress into Strength
Samantha Boardman - 2021-08-10
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Everyday Vitality" is a science-backed book about cultivating positive energy and resilience. Psychologist Samantha Boardman offers actionable strategies for building vitality from within, rather than just fixing what's wrong. Through meaningful connections, challenging experiences, and contributing to something beyond oneself, Boardman shows how anyone can boost emotional stamina and counter daily stress. This book proves that self-focus is not the answer, and that micro-moments of everyday life can become the building blocks for resilience.

This book, #EverydayVitality by @sambmd is beautifully written, and full of good anecdotes and sage clinical experience. “William James said it best: ‘To change one’s life: 1) Start immediately. 2) Do or flamboyantly. 3) No exceptions.’”      источник

Смерть экспертизы
как интернет убивает научные знания
Tom Nichols - 2017-04-27
Рейтинг Goodreads
Почему образованные успешные люди верят небылицам из интернета, почерпнутым на сомнительных сайтах? Почему мнения блогеров и интернет-селебрити по вопросам, в которых они не являются экспертами, ценятся обывателями выше, чем слова настоящих экспертов - специалистов, профессионалов и ученых? Очень своевременная книга, которая заставляет задуматься и призывает мыслить рационально.

American Contagions
Epidemics and the Law from Smallpox to COVID-19
John Fabian Witt - 2020-08-31
Рейтинг Goodreads
Discover the fascinating legal history of epidemics in America, from smallpox in the colonies to COVID-19. In this concise read, author John Fabian Witt delves into the ways in which infectious diseases have both shaped and been shaped by American law. Witt argues that legal responses to public health have been uneven over time, with some communities benefiting from more liberal policies while others have faced authoritarian measures. Explore how the major questions raised by past epidemics continue to impact us today, including the balance between individual liberty and the common good, the role of the federal government, and the fight against inequities.

Exposing Slavery book cover
Exposing Slavery
Photography, Human Bondage, and the Birth of Modern Visual Politics in America
Matthew Fox-Amato - 2019-04-01
Рейтинг Goodreads
Exposing Slavery explores how photography shaped and was shaped by conflicts over human bondage in the United States. From the introduction of photography in 1839 to the first moments of emancipation in 1865, photography powerfully influenced how bondage and freedom were documented, imagined, and contested. Drawing on an original source base that includes hundreds of unpublished and little-studied photographs of slaves, ex-slaves, free African Americans, and abolitionists, this book sheds new light on conflicts over late American slavery, while also revealing a key moment in the relationship between modern visual culture and racialized forms of power and resistance.

Humankind book cover
A Hopeful History
Rutger Bregman - 2020-06-02 (впервые опубликовано в 2019)
Рейтинг Goodreads
This revolutionary book argues that the innate goodness and cooperation of human beings has been the greatest factor in our success. Author Rutger Bregman debunks the idea that humans are inherently selfish and self-interested, instead offering a new historical perspective that shows we are evolutionarily wired for cooperation. Through little-known true stories, he shows that our instinct to trust each other has a firm evolutionary basis. The ultimate goal of Humankind is to demonstrate a new social system that reorients our thinking towards positive and high expectations of our fellow man, which will reap lasting success. Bregman presents his groundbreaking ideas in a witty and frank manner, making history, social science, and economic theory accessible to all.

This book, Humankind: A Hopeful History, by @rcbregman, has the most riveting prologues of any work of non-fiction I have ever read. And its fundamental argument is one that, unsurprisingly, I strongly agree with, too. Kudos.      источник

Рейтинг Goodreads
Discover the true essence of friendship with this fascinating multidisciplinary study. Synthesizing cross-cultural and ethnographic data, author Daniel J. Hruschka explores how the meaning of friendship differs worldwide, its interconnectedness with kinship and romantic relationships, and how it defies traditional evolutionary expectations by building mutual goodwill rather than tit-for-tat accounting. Engage with a diverse array of experimental data and gain a deeper understanding of this special form of reciprocal altruism.
