Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2018. The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. An Air Force loadmaster in the Vietnam War is shot out of the sky, then saved by falling into a banyan. An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the same doomed American chestnut. A hard-partying undergraduate in the late 1980s electrocutes herself, dies and is sent back into life by creatures of air and light. A hearing- and speech-impaired scientist discovers that trees are communicating with one another. These four, and five other strangers - each summoned in different ways by trees - are brought together in a last and violent stand to save the continent's few remaining acres of virgin forest. There is a world alongside ours - vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.

The Gospel According To Luke is the outrageous and hilarious autobiography of Steve Lukather, leader of the multi-million selling band Toto and guitarist for an extraordinary array of stellar talents such as Miles Davis, Paul, George and Ringo of the Beatles, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Barbara Streisand, Don Henley and Michael Jackson. The book will tell how Lukather and a group of high school friends formed Toto in 1977 and went on to sell more than 40 million records worldwide, cresting with the Toto IV album of 1982 which spawned such mega-global hits as 'Rosanna', 'Africa' and the Lukather-penned 'I Won't Hold You Back'. Toto IV also won them six Grammys. The book will take them right up to the present - overcoming scandals and tragedies to come back with a critically-acclaimed and US Billboard charting album in 2015 whilst their classic singles clocked up a combined total of more than 250 million views on YouTube. However, The Gospel According to Luke will at the same time navigate a much broader and richer landscape. It will share an outspoken, devil-may-care spirit and, like erstwhile Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham's hugely acclaimed Stoned autobiography, it will take the reader behind the VIP curtain of rock and pop stardom. And like Martin Scorcese's high-profile TV series Vinyl, The Gospel According to Luke will recount the vibrant, thrilling and frequently lurid history of a vanished golden age of the music business. The principal setting is the Los Angeles hit factories of the 1970s and '80s when Lukather was the superstar session player of the era, reaching the apex on Michael Jackson's Thriller blockbuster, for which Lukather and his fellow Toto members were the house band, and also co-writers on 'Human Nature'. In The Gospel According To Luke, Lukather will lift the lid on what really went on behind the closed studio doors. His account will be full of remarkable insights - both affectionate and scabrous - into the unique creative processes and peccadillos of some of the most legendary names in music. It will reveal how Barbra Streisand bullied her producers, why not to invite Elton John to a party and the means by which Miles Davis could revive a dead dog. Lukather's extraordinary tale will also encompass the dark side of the American Dream: from the crashing and burning of Michael Jackson to the death in 1992 of Toto drummer and West Coast legend Jeff Porcaro from a heart seizure at just 38. The book will draw on Lukather's comprehensive diaries, which account for every session he has played on, and personal archive [including hundreds of previously unpublished personal photographs from the same sessions]. The book will include suppo

Farewell to Reason�offers a vigorous challenge to the scientific rationalism that underlies Western ideals of "progress" and "development," whose damaging social and ecological consequences are now widely recognized.�For all their variety in theme and occasion, the essays in this book share a consistent philosophical purpose. Whether discussing Greek art and thought, vindicating the church's battle with Galileo, exploring the development of quantum physics or exposing the dogmatism of Karl Popper, Feyerabend defends a relativist and historicist notion of the sciences. The appeal to reason, he insists, is empty, and must be replaced by a notion of science that subordinates it to the needs of citizens and communities.Provocative, polemical and rigorously argued, Farewell to Reason�will infuriate Feyerabend's critics and delight his many admirers.

From flea bites to galaxies, from love affairs to shadows, Paul Feyerabend reveled in the sensory and intellectual abundance that surrounds us. He found it equally striking that human senses and human intelligence are able to take in only a fraction of these riches. "This a blessing, not a drawback," he writes. "A superconscious organism would not be superwise, it would be paralyzed." This human reduction of experience to a manageable level is the heart of Conquest of Abundance , the book on which Feyerabend was at work when he died in 1994. Prepared from drafts of the manuscript left at his death, working notes, and lectures and articles Feyerabend wrote while the larger work was in progress, Conquest of Abundance offers up rich exploration and startling insights with the charm, lucidity, and sense of mischief that are his hallmarks. Feyerabend is fascinated by how we attempt to explain and predict the mysteries of the natural world, and he looks at the ways in which we abstract experience, explain anomalies, and reduce wonder to formulas and equations. Through his exploration of the positive and negative consequences of these efforts, Feyerabend reveals the "conquest of abundance" as an integral part of the history and character of Western civilization.

The Thoth Tarot was the result of five years of painstaking effort by legendary occultist Aleister Crowley, who—in conjunction with artist Lady Frieda Harris—reinterpreted the traditional 78-card tarot deck to adhere to Crowley's own philosophies as well as esoteric knowledge of everything from science to alchemy to astrology and the Kabbalah. This kit contains everything a reader of the Thoth Tarot might need, including an authoritative 96-page book from authorities Johannes Fiebig and Evelin Burger that delves deep into the arcane layers informing each card plus 78 cards: 22 reinterpretations of the major arcana and 56 of the minor arcana, all painted with flaming intensity and rich in symbolism. The result is a clearer understanding of this powerful deck and all of the secrets that it holds.

In twentieth century Vienna, the art of Gustav Klimt held a primary position. Inspired by this modern master, Golden Tarot of Klimt is teeming with impressions, stamped in gold, that recount love, death, sensuality, and regeneration. Publisher Review: The art of Gustav Klimt (1862–1918), filled with symbolism, passion and eroticism, have become so popular that they appear everywhere, from posters on college student's walls to coffee mugs, from stained glass imitations to ceramic tile. His piece, "The Kiss," is virtually iconic and his painting of Adele Bloch-Bauer sold for $135 million in 2006, the highest price ever for a painting. Klimt combined graphic techniques with pictorial ones, flaunting conventions of the time, perhaps in anticipation of Weimar Germany that began a year after his death. Besides his mastery of inventive art [read more]

<p>Filled with political intrigue, violent magic, and malevolent spirits, the mesmerizing second book in Sarah Beth Durst’s Queens of Renthia epic fantasy trilogy.</p><p><em>Everything has a spirit: the willow tree with leaves that kiss the pond, the stream that feeds the river, the wind that exhales fresh snow . . . </em></p><p><em>And those spirits want to kill you.</em></p><p><em>It’s the first lesson that every Renthian learns.</em></p><p>Not long ago, Daleina used her strength and skill to survive those spirits and assume the royal throne. Since then, the new queen has kept the peace and protected the humans of her land. But now for all her power, she is hiding a terrible secret: she is dying. And if she leaves the world before a new heir is ready, the spirits that inhabit her beloved realm will run wild, destroying her cities and slaughtering her people. </p><p>Naelin is one such person, and she couldn’t be further removed from the Queen—and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Her world is her two children, her husband, and the remote village tucked deep in the forest that is her home, and that’s all she needs. But when Ven, the Queens champion, passes through the village, Naelin’s ambitious husband proudly tells him of his wife’s ability to control spirits—magic that Naelin fervently denies. She knows that if the truth of her abilities is known, it will bring only death and separation from those she loves. </p><p>But Ven has a single task: to find the best possible candidate to protect the people of Aratay. He did it once when he discovered Daleina, and he’s certain he’s done it again. Yet for all his appeals to duty, Naelin is a mother, and she knows her duty is to her children first and foremost. Only as the Queen’s power begins to wane and the spirits become emboldened—even as ominous rumors trickle down from the north—does she realize that the best way to keep her son and daughter safe is to risk everything. </p><p>Sarah Beth Durst established a place of dark wonder in <em>The Queen of Blood,</em> and now the stakes are even higher as the threat to the Queen and her people grows both from within and beyond the borders of Aratay in this riveting second novel of the Queens of Renthia series.</p><p></p>

Do work that matters. Productivity isn’t just about getting more things done. It’s about getting the right things done—the things that count, make a difference, and move the world forward. In our current era of massive overload, this is harder than ever before. So how do you get more of the right things done without confusing mere activity for actual productivity? When we take God’s purposes into account, a revolutionary insight emerges. Surprisingly, we see that the way to be productive is to put others first—to make the welfare of other people our motive and criteria in determining what to do (what’s best next). As both the Scriptures and the best business thinkers show, generosity is the key to unlocking our productivity. It is also the key to finding meaning and fulfillment in our work. What’s Best Next offers a practical approach for improving your productivity in all areas of life. It will help you better understand: • Why good works are not just rare and special things like going to Africa, but anything you do in faith even tying your shoes. • How to create a mission statement for your life that actually works. • How to delegate to people in a way that actually empowers them. • How to overcome time killers like procrastination, interruptions, and multitasking by turning them around and making them work for you. • How to process workflow efficiently and get your email inbox to zero every day. • How your work and life can transform the world socially, economically, and spiritually, and connect to God’s global purposes. By anchoring your understanding of productivity in God’s purposes and plan, What’s Best Next will give you a practical approach for increasing your effectiveness in everything you do. This expanded edition includes a new chapter on productivity in a fallen world and a new appendix on being more productive with work that requires creative thinking.

C.S. Lewis joined the human race when his wife, Joy Gresham, died of cancer. Lewis, the Oxford don whose Christian apologetics make it seem like he's got an answer for everything, experienced crushing doubt for the first time after his wife's tragic death. A Grief Observed contains his epigrammatic reflections on that period: "Your bid--for God or no God, for a good God or the Cosmic Sadist, for eternal life or nonentity--will not be serious if nothing much is staked on it. And you will never discover how serious it was until the stakes are raised horribly high," Lewis writes. "Nothing will shake a man--or at any rate a man like me--out of his merely verbal thinking and his merely notional beliefs. He has to be knocked silly before he comes to his senses. Only torture will bring out the truth. Only under torture does he discover it himself." This is the book that inspired the film Shadowlands, but it is more wrenching, more revelatory, and more real than the movie. It is a beautiful and unflinchingly honest record of how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of meaning in the universe, and how he can gradually regain his bearings. --Michael Joseph Gross

We are seeing the most exciting elevation of women's voices in decades. But how can we ensure this is not only a moment, but a movement for lasting change? Forget the old saying that when a woman climbs the corporate ladder, she needs to send it back down to help another woman climb too. A ladder can only elevate one woman at a time. What's needed is a fishing net to bring up many women together, all supporting each other. When Dr Kirstin Ferguson, a leading Australian company director, decided she'd had enough of witnessing the vicious online abuse of women around her, she began the #CelebratingWomen campaign, profiling two women from all walks of life and from anywhere in the world, every day for a year. The campaign reached millions around the world and caught the attention of Twitter as an example of the collective power of sharing our stories. In Women Kind, Ferguson joins Walkley award-winning journalist and leading commentator on women in the workplace Catherine Fox to bust the harmful Queen Bee myth - the pervasive and baseless idea that women turn on each other for scarce seats at the top table.

Winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2018 'A passionate and enchantingly discursive plea for meaningful connectedness... I can think of no better travel companion in these turbulent, fanatical times.' - The Guardian Flights,&nbsp;a novel about travel in the twenty-first century and human anatomy, is Olga Tokarczuk's most ambitious to date. It interweaves travel narratives and reflections on travel with an in-depth exploration of the human body, broaching life, death, motion, and migration. From the seventeenth century, we have the story of the Dutch anatomist Philip Verheyen, who dissected and drew pictures of his own amputated leg. From the eighteenth century, we have the story of a North African-born slave turned Austrian courtier stuffed and put on display after his death. In the nineteenth century, we follow Chopin's heart as it makes the covert journey from Paris to Warsaw. In the present we have the trials of a wife accompanying her much older husband as he teaches a course on a cruise ship in the Greek islands, and the harrowing story of a young husband whose wife and child mysteriously vanish on a holiday on a Croatian island. With her signature grace and insight, Olga Tokarczuk guides the reader beyond the surface layer of modernity and towards the core of the very nature of humankind.
