The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain

A bold new book reveals how we can tap the intelligence that exists beyond
our brains—in our bodies, our surroundings, and our relationships.Use your
head.That’s what we tell ourselves when facing a tricky problem or a
difficult project. But a growing body of research indicates that we’ve got
it exactly backwards. What we need to do, says acclaimed science writer
Annie Murphy Paul, is think outside the brain. A host of “extra-neural”
resources—the feelings and movements of our bodies, the physical spaces in
which we learn and work, and the minds of those around us—can help us focus
more intently, comprehend more deeply, and create more imaginatively.The
Extended Mind outlines the research behind this exciting new vision of
human ability, exploring the findings of neuroscientists, cognitive
scientists, and psychologists, and examining the practices of educators,
managers, and leaders who are already reaping the benefits of thinking
outside the brain. She excavates the untold history of how artists,
scientists, and authors—from Jackson Pollock to Jonas Salk to Robert
Caro—have used mental extensions to solve problems, make discoveries, and
create new works. In the tradition of Howard Gardner’s Frames of Mind or
Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence, The Extended Mind offers a
dramatic new view of how our minds work, with practical advice on how we
can all think better. Read more

The Big Lie: Election Chaos, Political Opportunism, and the State of American Politics After 2020

A probing and illuminating analysis of the current state of American
politics, focusing on Donald Trump’s lie about election fraud, by the White
House Bureau Chief of Politico and the host of MSNBC’s Way Too
Early.Jonathan Lemire uncovers that “The Big Lie,” as it’s been termed,
isn’t just about the 2020 election. It’s become a political philosophy that
has only further divided the two parties. Donald Trump first tried it out
in 2016, at an August rally in Ohio. He said that perhaps he wouldn’t
accept the election results in his race against Hillary Clinton, that the
election was “rigged.” He then mentioned it at more rallies and even at one
of the fall debates. He didn’t have to challenge the result that year, but
the stage was set. When he lost in 2020, he started the lie back up again
and to devastating results: an insurrection at the Capitol in January
2021.Republicans are still wholly under Trump’s sway. From his retirement
at his Florida and New Jersey clubs he meets with Republican officials,
aspiring candidates, and advisers and demands loyalty about this twisted
way of thinking. And Democrats still deal with him as their opposition
party is driven by a blatant lie. The parties aren’t divided by the
aisle―they’re on different planets.In the more than five tumultuous,
paradigm-shifting years of Donald Trump’s presidency and beyond, his
near-constant lying has become a fixture of political life. It is
inextricably linked with how his party behaves, how the Democrats respond
to it, and how he remains relevant, even after a decisive loss in 2020.
Jonathan Lemire brings his connections, profile, and dogged reportorial
instincts to bear in his first book that explores how this phenomenon
shapes our politics.Written with sharp political insight and detailed with
dozens of interviews, The Big Lie is the first book to examine this
unprecedented and tenuous moment in our nation’s politics. Read more

Royally Not Ready

From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn, comes a
fresh take on a royal romance with a twist. Laugh out loud funny and full
of some of her steamiest scenes yet, Quinn takes you on an unexpected,
sizzling fairytale journey. So there I was selling bikinis out of my truck
in South Beach Miami, getting ready to kick off a wet t-shirt contest when
the world’s biggest grouch approached me – Keller Fitzwilliam.The man had
the sultriest British accent I’ve ever heard. And he looked like he just
walked off a Viking boat and into a suit tailored specifically for his
impressively muscular frame. Only problem is, he had the warmth of an ice
pick and he kept telling me he was here to take me back to his home
country.Of course, I didn’t follow him. I might be up for a good time, but
I’m also educated enough to know leaving with a stranger isn’t smart. Well,
that’s until he mentioned my mom’s name. My mom who passed away several
years ago. So after some serious fact-checking, my bikini-clad bum went
with him to a sub-arctic country I had never heard of just north of the
British Isles, where I found out my grandpa was the king of said freezing
country, and I was the one and only heir.Desperate to learn more about my
mom, I decided to give this princess thing a chance.Good idea, right?
Wrong.Because Mr. Ice Pick was put to the task of training me and he’s not
just cold as ice, he’s pompous, aggravating, and possessive. And did I
mention we have to share a bathroom in a tiny castle?We are oil and water
every single day and even though he’s training me to be queen, I have this
simmering desire to kneel before him. Read more

Revenge

#N/A

The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021

The inside story of the four years when Donald Trump went to war with
Washington, from the chaotic beginning to the violent finale, told by
revered journalists Peter Baker of The New York Times and Susan Glasser of
The New Yorker—an ambitious and lasting history of the full Trump
presidency that also contains dozens of exclusive scoops and stories from
behind the scenes in the White House, from the absurd to the deadly
serious.The bestselling authors of The Man Who Ran Washington argue that
Trump was not just lurching from one controversy to another; he was
learning to be more like the foreign autocrats he admired. The Divider
brings us into the Oval Office for countless scenes both tense and comical,
revealing how close we got to nuclear war with North Korea, which cabinet
members had a resignation pact, whether Trump asked Japan’s prime minister
to nominate him for a Nobel Prize and much more. The book also explores the
moral choices confronting those around Trump—how they justified working for
a man they considered unfit for office, and where they drew their lines.The
Divider is based on unprecedented access to key players, from President
Trump himself to cabinet officers, military generals, close advisers, Trump
family members, congressional leaders, foreign officials and others, some
of whom have never told their story until now. Read more

Leadership: Six Studies in World Strategy

An instant New York Times bestsellerHenry Kissinger, consummate diplomat
and statesman, examines the strategies of six great twentieth-century
figures and brings to life a unifying theory of leadership and diplomacy“An
extraordinary book, one that braids together two through lines in the long
and distinguished career of former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger…In
Leadership he presents a fascinating set of historical case studies and
political biographies that blend the dance and the dancer, seamlessly.” –
James Stavridis, The Wall Street Journal“Leaders,” writes Henry Kissinger
in this compelling book, “think and act at the intersection of two axes:
the first, between the past and the future; the second, between the abiding
values and aspirations of those they lead. They must balance what they
know, which is necessarily drawn from the past, with what they intuit about
the future, which is inherently conjectural and uncertain. It is this
intuitive grasp of direction that enables leaders to set objectives and lay
down a strategy.” In Leadership, Kissinger analyses the lives of six
extraordinary leaders through the distinctive strategies of statecraft,
which he believes they embodied. After the Second World War, Konrad
Adenauer brought defeated and morally bankrupt Germany back into the
community of nations by what Kissinger calls “the strategy of humility.”
Charles de Gaulle set France beside the victorious Allies and renewed its
historic grandeur by “the strategy of will.” During the Cold War, Richard
Nixon gave geostrategic advantage to the United States by “the strategy of
equilibrium.” After twenty-five years of conflict, Anwar Sadat brought a
vision of peace to the Middle East by a “strategy of transcendence.”
Against the odds, Lee Kuan Yew created a powerhouse city-state, Singapore,
by “the strategy of excellence.” And, though Britain was known as “the sick
man of Europe” when Margaret Thatcher came to power, she renewed her
country’s morale and international position by “the strategy of
conviction.” To each of these studies, Kissinger brings historical
perception, public experience and—because he knew each of the subjects and
participated in many of the events he describes—personal knowledge.
Leadership is enriched by insights and judgements that only Kissinger could
make and concludes with his reflections on world order and the
indispensability of leadership today. Read more

The Great Reset: And the War for the World

In The Great Reset: And the War for the World, the most controversial man
on earth Alex Jones gives you a full analysis of The Great Reset, the
global elite’s international conspiracy to enslave humanity and all life on
the planet. If you really want to know what’s happening in the world, this
is the one book you must read now. Alex Jones is the most censored man on
the planet and you should ask yourself why that is. There is a powerful
authoritarian takeover in process that is seeking to capture the entire
human system and turn it into an artificial factory farm controlled system.
We are in a war for the future of the world. In this book, you will hear
from the world’s elites, from their own mouths, what they are planning for
you and your families and you will learn what you can do to fight it.From
central bankers, corporate billionaires, and corrupted government
officials, global elites have been organizing a historic war on humanity
under a trans-humanist, scientific dictatorship. Alex Jones was the first
major figure to expose the World Economic Forum’s agenda. He has dedicated
the last 30 years of his life to studying The Great Reset, conducting tens
of thousands of interviews with top-level scientists, politicians, and
military officials in order to reverse engineer their secrets and help
awaken humanity. The Great Reset: And the War for the World chronicles the
history of the global elites’ rise to power and reveals how they’ve
captured the governments of the world and financed The Great Reset to pave
the way for The New World Order. Once dubbed a conspiracy theory, but now
openly promoted by the most powerful corporations and governments, The
Great Reset is a planned attempt to redistribute all the world’s wealth and
power into the hands of banks, corporations, billionaires, and The World
Economic Forum. If you read one book in a lifetime, this is it. In The
Great Reset: And the War for the World, you will discover from the
self-appointed controllers of the planet in their own words, their plan for
what they call the final revolution, or The Great Reset. The only way this
corporate fascist conspiracy can succeed is if the people of the world are
not aware of it. And this book lays out their sinister blueprint and how to
stop it. While many great books have been written to help awaken people to
this sinister agenda, no author has ever spent as much time and research on
The Great Reset as Alex Jones. The Great Reset: And the War for the
World is the undisputed trailblazer for understanding what’s happening and
how to stop it. Read more

Breaking History: A White House Memoir

Amazon #1 Best Seller————————-Jared Kushner was one of the
most consequential presidential advisers in modern history. For the first
time, he recounts what happened behind closed doors during the Trump
presidency.Few White House advisors have had such an expansive portfolio or
constant access to the president. From his office next to Trump, senior
adviser Jared Kushner operated quietly behind the scenes, preferring to
leave the turf wars and television sparring to others. Now, Kushner finally
tells his story—a fast-paced and surprisingly candid account of how an
earnest businessman with no political ambitions found himself pulled into a
presidency that no one saw coming. Breaking History takes readers inside
debates in the Oval Office, double-crosses at the United Nations, tense
meetings in Arab palaces, high-stakes negotiations, and the daily barrage
of leaks, false allegations, investigations, and West Wing infighting.A
true historical thriller, this book is not your typical political memoir.
Kushner details Washington’s intense resistance to change and reveals how
he broke through the stalemates of the past. An outsider among outsiders,
Kushner was a results-driven executive among beltway power brokers. He
questioned old assumptions and delivered unprecedented results on trade,
criminal justice reform, production of COVID-19 vaccines, and Middle East
peace. His successful negotiation of the Abraham Accords, the most
significant diplomatic breakthrough in 50 years, earned him a nomination
for the Nobel Peace Prize.Written by one of the few people by Trump’s side
from his trip down the golden escalator to his final departure from Andrews
Air Force Base, Breaking History provides the most honest, nuanced, and
definitive understanding of a presidency that will be studied for
generations.*****”Now 41, Kushner was involved in brokering Trump’s
US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement and drafting and passing the 2018 First
Step Act that included prison and criminal sentencing reforms. He helped
lead the White House COVID-19 response in 2020 and led efforts to broker
diplomatic relations between Israel and four Arab countries during the
final months of Trump’s term.”—New York Post Read more

Not My First Rodeo: Lessons from the Heartland

South Dakota governor Kristi Noem tells her rough and tumble story of
growing up on a ranch, and how a blessed life of true grit taught her how
to lead. “We don’t complain about things, Kristi. We fix them.” Taking her
father’s words to heart, South Dakota’s first woman governor Kristi Noem
shares heartfelt – and heartbreaking – lessons on making things right in
the world, from her childhood on a farm in the vastness of rural America,
to the marbled halls of Congress, to the national spotlight amid a global
pandemic. From humorous barnyard battles with feisty cattle and rodeo
horses, to the tragic and untimely death of her larger-than-life father, to
her decision to her decision to return and run the farm and ranch with her
family, Noem invites readers into a life defined by work, faith, and
helping others. Noem’s reflections are offered in the familiar, unvarnished
voice of a woman who later defied Washington’s most powerful politicians
and led the people of her small, hardscrabble state through natural
disasters, the pain of a global pandemic, and the fear and turmoil that
gripped the nation after. While filled with plenty of candid observations
and refreshingly frank assessments of the country’s leading figures, the
memoir’s most powerful moments nevertheless come from honest glimpses into
marriage, motherhood, and leadership in an unpredictable time. Far from
a book about politics, Not My First Rodeo is the story of a life lived so
far – with characters as richly textured as the Black Hills, and
reflections as gentle and powerful as America itself. Read more

Lessons in Chemistry: A Novel (Random House Large Print)

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK • ONE OF
NPR’s BEST BOOKS OF 2022 A must-read debut! Meet Elizabeth Zott: a
one-of-a-kind scientist in 1960s California whose career takes a detour
when she becomes the unlikely star of a beloved TV cooking show in this
novel that is “irresistible, satisfying and full of fuel. It reminds you
that change takes time and always requires heat” (The New York Times Book
Review).“It’s the world versus Elizabeth Zott, an extraordinary woman
determined to live on her own terms, and I had no trouble choosing a
side…. A page-turning and highly satisfying tale: zippy, zesty, and
Zotty.” —Maggie Shipstead, best-selling author of Great CircleChemist
Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be
the first to point out that there is no such thing as an average woman. But
it’s the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute
takes a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans;
the lonely, brilliant, Nobel–prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in
love with—of all things—her mind. True chemistry results. But like science,
life is unpredictable. Which is why a few years later Elizabeth Zott finds
herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America’s most
beloved cooking show Supper at Six. Elizabeth’s unusual approach to cooking
(“combine one tablespoon acetic acid with a pinch of sodium chloride”)
proves revolutionary. But as her following grows, not everyone is happy.
Because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn’t just teaching women to cook.
She’s daring them to change the status quo. Laugh-out-loud funny, shrewdly
observant, and studded with a dazzling cast of supporting characters,
Lessons in Chemistry is as original and vibrant as its protagonist. Read more

The End of the World Is Just the Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Globalization

2019 was the last great year for the world economy.For generations,
everything has been getting faster, better, and cheaper. Finally, we
reached the point that almost anything you could ever want could be sent to
your home within days – even hours – of when you decided you wanted
it.America made that happen, but now America has lost interest in keeping
it going.Globe-spanning supply chains are only possible with the protection
of the U.S. Navy. The American dollar underpins internationalized
energy and financial markets. Complex, innovative industries were created
to satisfy American consumers. American security policy forced warring
nations to lay down their arms. Billions of people have been fed and
educated as the American-led trade system spread across the globe.All of
this was artificial. All this was temporary. All this is ending.In The End
of the World is Just the Beginning, author and geopolitical strategist
Peter Zeihan maps out the next world: a world where countries or regions
will have no choice but to make their own goods, grow their own food,
secure their own energy, fight their own battles, and do it all with
populations that are both shrinking and aging.The list of countries that
make it all work is smaller than you think. Which means everything about
our interconnected world – from how we manufacture products, to how we grow
food, to how we keep the lights on, to how we shuttle stuff about, to how
we pay for it all – is about to change.In customary Zeihan fashion, rather
than yelling fire in the geoeconomic theatre, he narrates the accumulation
of matchsticks, gasoline, and dynamite in the hands of the oblivious
audience, suggesting we might want to call the fire department.A world
ending. A world beginning. Zeihan brings readers along for an illuminating
(and a bit terrifying) ride packed with foresight, wit, and his
trademark irreverence. Read more

Why We Did It: A Travelogue from the Republican Road to Hell

Former Republican political operative Tim Miller answers the question no
one else has fully grappled with: Why did normal people go along with the
worst of Trumpism? As one of the strategists behind the famous 2012 RNC
“autopsy,” Miller conducts his own forensic study on the pungent carcass of
the party he used to love, cutting into all the hubris, ambition, idiocy,
desperation, and self-deception for everyone to see. In a bracingly honest
reflection on both his own past work for the Republican Party and the
contortions of his former peers in the GOP establishment, Miller draws a
straight line between the actions of the 2000s GOP to the Republican
political class’s Trumpian takeover, including the horrors of January 6th.
From ruminations on the mental jujitsu that allowed him as a gay man to
justify becoming a hitman for homophobes, to astonishingly raw interviews
with former colleagues who jumped on the Trump Train, Miller diagrams the
flattering and delusional stories GOP operatives tell themselves so they
can sleep at night. With a humorous touch he reveals Reince Priebus’
neediness, Sean Spicer’s desperation, Elise Stefanik and Chris Christie’s
raw ambition, and his close friends’ submission to a MAGA psychosis. Why We
Did It is a vital, darkly satirical warning that all the narcissistic
justifications that got us to this place still thrive within the Republican
party, which means they will continue to make the same mistakes and
political calculations that got us here, with disastrous consequences for
the nation. Read more
