Sapiens: [a Brief History of Humankind]

Sapiens: [a Brief History of Humankind]
Harari, Yuval N.

"One hundred thousand years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism? Bold, wide-ranging, and provocative, Sapiens integrates history and science to challenge everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our heritage . . . and our future" --provided by publisher.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living A Good Life

The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living A Good Life
Manson, Mark

There are only so many things people can care about so they need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what listeners do with their life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much needed moment of real talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, this is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

A Legacy of Spies

A Legacy of Spies
Le Carré, John, 1931-

"Peter Guillam, staunch colleague and disciple of George Smiley of the British Secret Service, otherwise known as the Circus, is living out his old age on the family farmstead on the south coast of Brittany when a letter from his old Service summons him to London. The reason? His Cold War past has come back to claim him. Intelligence operations that were once the toast of secret London, and involved such characters as Alec Leamas, Jim Prideaux, George Smiley and Peter Guillam himself, are to be scrutinized by a generation with no memory of the Cold War and no patience with its justifications."--Provided by publisher.

Autumn

Autumn
Smith, Ali, 1962-

"From the Man Booker-shortlisted and Baileys Prize-winning author of How to be both: a breathtakingly inventive new novel--about aging, time, love, and stories themselves--that launches an extraordinary quartet of books called Seasonal... The first installment in a quartet, Seasonal, comprised of four stand-alone books, separate yet interconnected and cyclical (as are the seasons), explores what time is, how we experience it, and the recurring markers in the shapes our lives take and in our ways with narrative. Fusing Keatsian mists and mellow fruitfulness with the vitality, the immediacy, and the color hit of Pop Art, Autumn is a witty excavation of the present by the past. The novel is a stripped-branches take on popular culture and a meditation, in a world growing ever more bordered and exclusive, on what richness and worth are, what harvest means"--|cProvided by publisher.
