📝Homo Deus Book Synopsis : NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically-acclaimed New York Times bestseller and international phenomenon Sapiens, returns with an equally original, compelling, and provocative book, turning his focus toward humanity’s future, and our quest to upgrade humans into gods. Over the past century humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war. This may seem hard to accept, but, as Harari explains in his trademark style—thorough, yet riveting—famine, plague and war have been transformed from incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature into manageable challenges. For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists and criminals put together. The average American is a thousand times more likely to die from binging at McDonalds than from being blown up by Al Qaeda. What then will replace famine, plague, and war at the top of the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet earth, what destinies will we set ourselves, and which quests will we undertake? Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century—from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus. With the same insight and clarity that made Sapiens an international hit and a New York Times bestseller, Harari maps out our future.

But how does it feel when you haven't eaten for days on end and you have no clue where to get new morsel of food? Most people today have never experienced this excruciating torment.

📒The Good Immigrant ✍ Nikesh Shukla
📝The Good Immigrant Book Synopsis : How does it feel to be constantly regarded as a potential threat, strip-searched at every airport? Or be told that, as an actress, the part you’re most fitted to play is ‘wife of a terrorist’? How does it feel to have words from your native language misused, misappropriated and used aggressively towards you? How does it feel to hear a child of colour say in a classroom that stories can only be about white people? How does it feel to go ‘home’ to India when your home is really London? What is it like to feel you always have to be an ambassador for your race? How does it feel to always tick ‘Other’? Bringing together 21 exciting black, Asian and minority ethnic voices emerging in Britain today, The Good Immigrant explores why immigrants come to the UK, why they stay and what it means to be ‘other’ in a country that doesn’t seem to want you, doesn’t truly accept you – however many generations you’ve been here – but still needs you for its diversity monitoring forms. Inspired by discussion around why society appears to deem people of colour as bad immigrants – job stealers, benefit scroungers, undeserving refugees – until, by winning Olympic races or baking good cakes, or being conscientious doctors, they cross over and become good immigrants, editor Nikesh Shukla has compiled a collection of essays that are poignant, challenging, angry, humorous, heartbreaking, polemic, weary and – most importantly – real.

📒Janesville ✍ Amy Goldstein
📝Janesville Book Synopsis : “Moving and magnificently well-researched...Janesville joins a growing family of books about the evisceration of the working class in the United States. What sets it apart is the sophistication of its storytelling and analysis.” —The New York Times A Washington Post reporter’s intimate account of the fallout from the closing of a General Motors’ assembly plant in Janesville, Wisconsin—Paul Ryan’s hometown—and a larger story of the hollowing of the American middle class. This is the story of what happens to an industrial town in the American heartland when its factory stills—but it’s not the familiar tale. Most observers record the immediate shock of vanished jobs, but few stay around long enough to notice what happens next, when a community with a can-do spirit tries to pick itself up. Pulitzer Prize winner Amy Goldstein has spent years immersed in Janesville, Wisconsin where the nation’s oldest operating General Motors plant shut down in the midst of the Great Recession, two days before Christmas of 2008. Now, with intelligence, sympathy, and insight into what connects and divides people in an era of economic upheaval, she makes one of America’s biggest political issues human. Her reporting takes the reader deep into the lives of autoworkers, educators, bankers, politicians, and job re-trainers to show why it’s so hard in the twenty-first century to recreate a healthy, prosperous working class. For this is not just a Janesville story or a Midwestern story. It’s an American story.

📒Reinventing Prosperity ✍ Graeme Maxton
📝Reinventing Prosperity Book Synopsis : The biggest challenges facing human wellbeing today are widening income inequality, continuing global poverty, and environmental degradation. Luckily, these problems are simple to solve — in theory. In practice, however, they are much harder to solve, because we are required to come up with solutions that are acceptable to a political majority in the rich world. Most of the commonly proposed “solutions” are simply not acceptable to most people. Many of these proposed solutions — like stopping the use of fossil fuels — require a sacrifice today in order to obtain an uncertain advantage in the far future. Therefore they are politically infeasible in the modern world, which is marked by relatively short term thinking. In Reinventing Prosperity, Graeme Maxton and Jorgen Randers provide a new approach altogether through thirteen recommendations which are both politically acceptable and which can be implemented in the current period of slow economic growth around the world. Reinventing Prosperity solves the forty year old growth/no-growth standoff, by providing a solution to income inequality, continuing global poverty and climate change, a solution that will provide for economic growth but with a declining ecological footprint. Reinventing Prosperity shows us how to live better on our finite planet — and in ways we can agree on.
📒Homo Deus ✍ Samuel Harris
📝Homo Deus Book Synopsis : HOMO DEUS Read HOMO DEUS -The Future of Mankind on your PC, Mac, smart phone, table, ipad or Kindle device. How many of us truly know the future? How many of us can gaze into the distant world, peering beyond the veil and see the truth of what is to come? Chances are, aside from those who purport psychic powers, no one here can see the future. We have no ability to see what is coming down the pipeline. We cannot predict what will happen tomorrow, next week or even next year with any form of confidence. Time makes fools of us all.So how then are we to consider what is to come? How can we as people determine what the future is going to be like? Well, while we might not be able to confidently say what will happen tomorrow or next year, we are able to make a series of conclusions based off of the patterns of the past. You see, history is more or less indicative of how the world will continue to move. History is based off of long patterns that if viewed from a top level, will show that a lot of things could be accurately predicted. When we say prediction, we are not talking about specifics. No historian would have been able to predict that it would have been the exact assassination of Francis Ferdinand that would have started World War I, but many historians had seen the history of violence and the powder keg that had been the Balkans and would know that someday a major catastrophe would have incited a long drawn out war. Seeing the future isn't about predicting specific events, but rather it is using the information from the patterns that we have today and seeing just what the future has in store for us on a large level. In our modern society, there is a great deal of doom and gloom. Many people are living in fear that we are perhaps in the worst time of history. They point to things like climate change, the political sphere, globalization and terrorism, using these things as evidences as to why the modern-day era is the worst that it's ever been. The problem with this synopsis is that it is entirely ignorant of history! The purpose of this book is to shed light on the patterns of history and show that the future is something to be welcome instead of feared. If you are someone who has worried about the future of our planet, of our countries and the state of affairs, then I would welcome you to kick back, relax and give this book a read. Together we are going to be looking at three distinct phases of our timeline, the past, the present and what we believe the future will be like. We will look at the biggest problems our world has faced over the years, we will examine the patterns of time and most importantly, we will use those patterns to reveal what is in store for humanity on a higher level. Are you ready? Let's begin! In this book we're going to cover: A Brief History of Mankind The Modern Life Human Optimization Human Destiny Transcendence And much, much more!

📒Stealing Fire ✍ Steven Kotler
📝Stealing Fire Book Synopsis : It’s the biggest revolution you’ve never heard of, and it’s hiding in plain sight. Over the past decade, Silicon Valley executives like Eric Schmidt and Elon Musk, Special Operators like the Navy SEALs and the Green Berets, and maverick scientists like Sasha Shulgin and Amy Cuddy have turned everything we thought we knew about high performance upside down. Instead of grit, better habits, or 10,000 hours, these trailblazers have found a surprising short cut. They're harnessing rare and controversial states of consciousness to solve critical challenges and outperform the competition. New York Times bestselling author Steven Kotler and high performance expert Jamie Wheal spent four years investigating the leading edges of this revolution—from the home of SEAL Team Six to the Googleplex, the Burning Man festival, Richard Branson’s Necker Island, Red Bull’s training center, Nike’s innovation team, and the United Nations’ Headquarters. And what they learned was stunning: In their own ways, with differing languages, techniques, and applications, every one of these groups has been quietly seeking the same thing: the boost in information and inspiration that altered states provide. Today, this revolution is spreading to the mainstream, fueling a trillion dollar underground economy and forcing us to rethink how we can all lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives. Driven by four accelerating forces—psychology, neurobiology, technology and pharmacology—we are gaining access to and insights about some of the most contested and misunderstood terrain in history. Stealing Fire is a provocative examination of what’s actually possible; a guidebook for anyone who wants to radically upgrade their life.
