The little book by Epictetus called Enchiridion or Manual has played a disproportionately large role in the rise of modern attitudes and modern philosophy. As soon as it had been translated into the vernacular languages, it became a best seller among independent intellectuals, among anti-Christian thinkers, and among philosophers of a subjective cast. Montaigne had a copy of the Enchiridion among his books. Pascal violently rejected the megalomaniac pride of the Stoic philosopher. Frederick the Great carried the book with him on all campaigns. It was a source of inspiration and encouragement to Anthony, Earl of Shaftesbury, in the serious illness which ended only in his death; many pages of his diaries contain passages copied from the Enchiridion. It has been studied and widely quoted by Scottish philosophers like Francis Hutcheson, Adam Smith, and Adam Ferguson who valued Stoic moral philosophy for its reconciliation of social dependency and personal independence. 1.

Humorous advice for cats, by cats. The author ´´discovered´´ the feline world´s best-kept secret in a file hidden on his mother´s computer by her cat, Cleo, and now shares it with humanity for the first time. Topics covered range from avoiding visits to the vet, to the artful display of captured prey, to getting in the way of a human trying to read anything, including this paragraph. Upon publication, Cleo denied authorship and hired a team of lawyers with their claws out, but despite her best efforts, word is spreading with over 75,000 Kindle downloads: The Cat Manual is hilarious for cat-lovers of all ages.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of How to be Human: The Manual written and read by Ruby Wax with Ash Ranpura and Gelong Thubten. It took us 4 billion years to evolve to where we are now. No question, anyone reading this has won the evolutionary Hunger Games by the fact you´re on all twos and not some fossil. This should make us all the happiest species alive, yet most of us aren´t. What´s gone wrong? We´ve started treating ourselves more like machines and less like humans. We´re so used to upgrading things like our iPhones: as soon as the new one comes out, we don´t think twice, we dump it. (Many people I know are now on iWife4 or iHusband8, the motto being, if it´s new, it´s better.) We can´t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we´re on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, we´ll still, fingers crossed, have our minds, which, hopefully, we´ll be able to use for things like compassion rather than chasing what´s ´better´, and if we can do that we´re on the yellow brick road to happiness. I wrote this book with a little help from a monk, who explains how the mind works and also gives some mindfulness exercises, and a neuroscientist who explains what makes us ´us´ in the brain. We answer every question you´ve ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, kids, the future and compassion. How to be Human is extremely funny, true and the only manual you´ll need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you´ve upgraded your iPhone. 1. Language: English.

Over fifteen years of dirty secrets, shocking reveals, and all of the celebrity gossip that’s unfit to print . . . but we’re going to anyway. When Jay Z defended himself against unfair charges that he slapped a woman, when Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez got tagged by an escort agency madam, when Bill O’Reilly dissed Muslim women, and when Ruth Madoff discovered her scam artist husband, Bernie, had also been cheating on her, it all came out in the pages of Rush & Molloy, the internationally syndicated entertainment column devoured by millions. George Rush and Joanna Molloy are as dedicated to finding the juiciest scoops as they are to their long screwball romance. Together they’ve made some impressive enemies, turned down some bribes, become unlikely relationship counselors to famous star-crossed lovers, and witnessed the evolution of celebrity coverage from the twilight of Winchell to the dawn of Twitter. Part love story, part tabloid, Scandal is a rollicking memoir of fame, gossip, and two true icons of print and web journalism. Rush and Molloy have exposed, unraveled, and reported some of Hollywood’s biggest rumors, blind items, and unbelievable stories. Still, over the years, the couple has kept a few salacious tales to themselves - that is, until now! 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Rush, Joanna Molloy.
