Yuval Noah Harari$24.99 $22.49
It is more likely that a person will die from eating at McDonald's than from starvation, or old age than from a virus, or suicide than from a terrorist attack. The book points out that for the most part, we have a handle on starvation, disease, and death by a criminal event. Now that we have a handle on the big three, where will we focus next? Harari points out that are focus will be on extending life and becoming godlike. It's scary where the future may take us and important to know what could happen.
Hans Rosling, Anna Rosling Ronnlund, et al.$27.99 $25.19
Factfulness reveals global trends, showing statistics that do not mirror what we are being told. Fear is induced by the media as they broadcast the image of our world as dangerous when the world today has never been safer. No matter how we focus on the bad, the world is getting better and Rosling shows in what ways.
J. D. Robb$23.97 $21.57
Robb's In Death series brings an adventure in every book, not to mention she has around 50 books in this series. It takes place in the 21st century where Lt. Eve Dallas solves crimes on this planet and others. What makes the series even more interesting are the characters that are around Eve, like her husband Roarke, Detectives Peabody and McNab, a snooty butler because they are freaking rich, and her best friend who is a rock star is the wildest way.
Janet Evanovich$28.00 $25.20
When I want to read fiction that makes me laugh I pick up Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. You just don't know what trouble Stephanie will get into because of Grandma Mazur or LuLu. Then there's the whole who's hotter, Joe Morelli or Ranger. You decide.
Yuval Noah Harari$18.00 $16.56
Harari's books make you pause to take in what he reveals. Here he gives us 21 lessons we need to consider to survive this century. As you read you will awaken to happenings in a new light. Most disturbing is views of the greatest number of people come from communal groupthink rather than individual rationality because of group loyalty. The book will reveal to you if you are really finding out the facts to form your opinion or are you just follow along. Scary!
