Books That Deserve To Be Read

There are more than half a million books published each year in the US alone. Not all of them make the best seller lists. We are on a quest to find the books that deserve to be in the best seller list.

How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them

“No single book is as relevant to the present moment.”—Claudia Rankine,
author of Citizen“One of the defining books of the decade.”—Elizabeth
Hinton, author of From the War on Poverty to the War on CrimeNEW YORK TIMES
BOOK REVIEW EDITORS’ CHOICE • With a new preface • Fascist politics are
running rampant in America today—and spreading around the world. A Yale
philosopher identifies the ten pillars of fascist politics, and charts
their horrifying rise and deep history. As the child of refugees of World
War II Europe and a renowned philosopher and scholar of propaganda, Jason
Stanley has a deep understanding of how democratic societies can be
vulnerable to fascism: Nations don’t have to be fascist to suffer from
fascist politics. In fact, fascism’s roots have been present in the United
States for more than a century. Alarmed by the pervasive rise of fascist
tactics both at home and around the globe, Stanley focuses here on the
structures that unite them, laying out and analyzing the ten pillars of
fascist politics—the language and beliefs that separate people into an “us”
and a “them.” He knits together reflections on history, philosophy,
sociology, and critical race theory with stories from contemporary Hungary,
Poland, India, Myanmar, and the United States, among other nations. He
makes clear the immense danger of underestimating the cumulative power of
these tactics, which include exploiting a mythic version of a nation’s
past; propaganda that twists the language of democratic ideals against
themselves; anti-intellectualism directed against universities and experts;
law and order politics predicated on the assumption that members of
minority groups are criminals; and fierce attacks on labor groups and
welfare. These mechanisms all build on one another, creating and
reinforcing divisions and shaping a society vulnerable to the appeals of
authoritarian leadership. By uncovering disturbing patterns that are as
prevalent today as ever, Stanley reveals that the stuff of politics—charged
by rhetoric and myth—can quickly become policy and reality. Only by
recognizing fascists politics, he argues, may we resist its most harmful
effects and return to democratic ideals.“With unsettling insight and
disturbing clarity, How Fascism Works is an essential guidebook to our
current national dilemma of democracy vs. authoritarianism.”—William Jelani
Cobb, author of The Substance of Hope Read more

The Good Life: Lessons from the World’s Longest Scientific Study of Happiness

What makes for a happy life, a fulfilling life? A good life? According to
the directors of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, the longest
scientific study of happiness ever conducted, the answer to these questions
may be closer than you realize. What makes a life fulfilling and
meaningful? The simple but surprising answer is: relationships. The
stronger our relationships, the more likely we are to live happy,
satisfying, and overall healthier lives. In fact, the Harvard Study of
Adult Development reveals that the strength of our connections with others
can predict the health of both our bodies and our brains as we go through
life. The invaluable insights in this book emerge from the revealing
personal stories of hundreds of participants in the Harvard Study as they
were followed year after year for their entire adult lives, and this wisdom
is bolstered by research findings from this and many other studies.
Relationships in all their forms—friendships, romantic partnerships,
families, coworkers, tennis partners, book club members, Bible study
groups—all contribute to a happier, healthier life. And as The Good Life
shows us, it’s never too late to strengthen the relationships you have, and
never too late to build new ones. Dr. Waldinger’s TED Talk about the
Harvard Study, “What Makes a Good Life,” has been viewed more than 42
million times and is one of the ten most-watched TED talks ever. The Good
Life has been praised by bestselling authors Jay Shetty (“Robert Waldinger
and Marc Schulz lead us on an empowering quest towards our greatest need:
meaningful human connection”), Angela Duckworth (“In a crowded field of
life advice and even life advice based on scientific research, Schulz and
Waldinger stand apart”), and happiness expert Laurie Santos (“Waldinger and
Schulz are world experts on the counterintuitive things that make life
meaningful”). With warmth, wisdom, and compelling life stories, The Good
Life shows us how we can make our lives happier and more meaningful through
our connections to others. Read more

The January 6th Report

Celadon Books and The New Yorker present the report by the Select
Committee to Investigate the Jan 6 Attack on the United States Capitol.On
January 6, 2021, insurgents stormed the U.S. Capitol, an act of domestic

happened.Celadon Books, in collaboration with The New Yorker, presents the
committee’s final report, the definitive account of January 6th and what
led up to it, based on more than a year of investigation by nine members of

Congressman Jamie Raskin of Maryland, a member of the committee. Read more

The Mountain Is You: Transforming Self-Sabotage Into Self-Mastery

This is a book about self-sabotage. Why we do it, when we do it, and how
to stop doing it—for good. Coexisting but conflicting needs create
self-sabotaging behaviors. This is why we resist efforts to change, often
until they feel completely futile. But by extracting crucial insight from
our most damaging habits, building emotional intelligence by better
understanding our brains and bodies, releasing past experiences at a
cellular level, and learning to act as our highest potential future selves,
we can step out of our own way and into our potential. For centuries, the
mountain has been used as a metaphor for the big challenges we face,
especially ones that seem impossible to overcome. To scale our mountains,
we actually have to do the deep internal work of excavating trauma,
building resilience, and adjusting how we show up for the climb. In the
end, it is not the mountain we master, but ourselves. Read more

narrative about race and art.” —TIME“A revelation . . . [the] best horse
book I’ve ever read.” —Jane Smiley, The New York Times Book ReviewA

braids a sweeping story of spirit, obsession, and injustice across American
historyKentucky, 1850. An enslaved groom named Jarret and a bay foal forge
a bond of understanding that will carry the horse to record-setting
victories across the South. When the nation erupts in civil war, an
itinerant young artist who has made his name on paintings of the racehorse
takes up arms for the Union. On a perilous night, he reunites with the
stallion and his groom, very far from the glamor of any racetrack. New

risks on edgy contemporary painters, becomes obsessed with a
nineteenth-century equestrian oil painting of mysterious

other uncovering the lost history of the unsung Black horsemen who were
critical to his racing success. Based on the remarkable true story of the
record-breaking thoroughbred Lexington, Horse is a novel of art and
science, love and obsession, and our unfinished reckoning with racism. Read more

convincing him to invite her to the huge annual Christmas party as his
date.But when the relationship starts to become something more than casual
