    Taschenbuch. Zustand: Neu. Neuware - A New York Times BestsellerA Washington Post Notable Nonfiction Book of 2020 Named a Best Book of 2020 by NPR A fascinating scientific, cultural, spiritual and evolutionary history of the way humans breathe and how we ve all been doing it wrong for a long, long time. Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Big Magic and Eat Pray LoveNo matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you re not breathing properly.There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat twenty-five thousand times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. The answers aren t found in pulmonology labs, as we might expect, but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of São Paulo. Nestor tracks down men and women exploring the hidden science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya, and Tummo and teams up with pulmonary tinkerers to scientifically test long-held beliefs about how we breathe.Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance; rejuvenate internal organs; halt snoring, asthma, and autoimmune disease; and even straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is. Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology, Breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again. 280 pp. Englisch.

    Taschenbuch. Zustand: Neu. Neuware - Essential . . . one for the ages . . . a must read for all who care about presidential power. The Washington Post Authoritative . . . The most comprehensive account yet of that smoldering wreck of foreign policy, one that haunts us today. LA TimesOne of BookPage's Best Books of 2020To Start a War paints a vivid and indelible picture of a decision-making process that was fatally compromised by a combination of post-9/11 fear and paranoia, rank naïveté, craven groupthink, and a set of actors with idées fixes who gamed the process relentlessly. Everything was believed; nothing was true. Robert Draper s fair-mindedness and deep understanding of the principal actors suffuse his account, as does a storytelling genius that is close to sorcery. There are no cheap shots here, which makes the ultimate conclusion all the more damning.In the spirit of Barbara W. Tuchman s The Guns of August and Marc Bloch s Strange Defeat, To Start A War will stand as the definitive account of a collective scurrying for evidence that would prove to be not just dubious but entirely false evidence that was then used to justify a verdict that led to hundreds of thousands of deaths and a flood tide of chaos in the Middle East that shows no signs of ebbing. 480 pp. Englisch.

    Taschenbuch. Zustand: Neu. Neuware -Named a Best Book of 2020 by NPR and Vanity FairOne of Smithsonian's Ten Best Science Books of 2020 A searching and vital explication of germ theory, social norms, and what the modern era is really doing to our bodies and our psyches. Vanity FairA preventative medicine physician and staff writer for The Atlanticexplains thesurprising and unintended effects of our hygiene practicesin this informative andentertaining introduction to the new science of skin microbes and probiotics. Keeping skin healthy is a booming industry, and yet it seems like almost no one agrees on what actually works.Confusing messages from health authoritiesand ineffectivetreatments haveleft many people desperate for reliable solutions. An enormous alternative industry is filling the void, selling products that are often of questionable safety and totally unknown effectiveness. InClean, doctor and journalist James Hamblin explores how we got here, examining the science and culture of how we care for our skin today. He talks to dermatologists, microbiologists, allergists, immunologists, aestheticians, bar-soap enthusiasts, venture capitalists, Amish people, theologians, and straight-up scam artists, trying to figure out what it really means to be clean. He even experiments with giving up showers entirely, and discovers that he is not alone. Along the way, he realizes that most of our standards of cleanliness are less related to health than most people think.Amajor part of the picture has been missing: a little-known ecosystem known as the skin microbiome the trillions of microbes that live on our skin and in our pores. These microbes are not dangerous; they re more like an outer layer of skin that no one knew we had, and theyinfluence everything from acne, eczema, and dry skin, to how we smell. The new goal of skin care will be to cultivate a healthy biome and to embrace the meaning of clean in the natural sense. This can mean doing much less, saving time, money, energy, water, and plastic bottles in the process.Lucid, accessible, and deeply researched,Cleanexplores the ongoing, radical change in the way we think about our skin, introducing readers to the emerging science that will be at the forefront of health and wellness conversations in coming years. 290 pp. Englisch.

    Buch. Zustand: Neu. Neuware -NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERBuilding on the groundwork laid in the New York Times bestseller White Fragility, Robin DiAngelo explores how a culture of niceness inadvertently promotes racism.InWhite Fragility, Robin DiAngelo explained how racism is a system into which all white people are socialized and challenged the belief that racism is a simple matter of good people versus bad. DiAngelo also made a provocative claim: white progressives cause the most daily harm to people of color. InNice Racism, her follow-up work, she explains how they do so. Drawing on her background as a sociologist and over 25 years working as an anti-racist educator, she picks up whereWhite Fragilityleft off and moves the conversation forward.Writing directly to white people as a white person, DiAngelo identifies many common white racial patterns and breaks down how well-intentioned white people unknowingly perpetuate racial harm. These patterns include:-rushing to prove that we are not racist ;-downplaying white advantage;-romanticizing Black, Indigenous and other peoples of color (BIPOC);-pretending white segregation just happens ;-expecting BIPOC people to teach us about racism;-carefulness;-and feeling immobilized by shame.DiAngelo explains how spiritual white progressives seeking community by co-opting Indigenous and other groups rituals create separation, not connection. She challenges the ideology of individualism and explains why it is OK to generalize about white people, and she demonstrates how white people who experience other oppressions still benefit from systemic racism. Writing candidly about her own missteps and struggles, she models a path forward, encouraging white readers to continually face their complicity and embrace courage, lifelong commitment, and accountability.Nice Racismis an essential work for any white person who recognizes the existence of systemic racism and white supremacy and wants to take steps to align their values with their actual practice. BIPOC readers may also find the insiders perspective useful for navigating whiteness.Includes a study guide. 201 pp. Englisch.

    Buch. Zustand: Neu. Neuware -The instant New York Times bestseller | A Washington Post Notable Book | One of NPR's Best Books of the Year Expert storytelling . . . [Pollan] masterfully elevates a series of big questions about drugs, plants and humans that are likely to leave readers thinking in new ways. New York Times Book Review From #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Pollan, a radical challenge to how we think about drugs, and an exploration into the powerful human attraction to psychoactive plants and the equally powerful taboos.Of all the things humans rely on plants for sustenance, beauty, medicine, fragrance, flavor, fiber surely the most curious is our use of them to change consciousness: to stimulate or calm, fiddle with or completely alter, the qualities of our mental experience. Take coffee and tea: People around the world rely on caffeine to sharpen their minds. But we do not usually think of caffeine as a drug, or our daily use as an addiction, because it is legal and socially acceptable. So, then, what is a drug And why, for example, is making tea from the leaves of a tea plant acceptable, but making tea from a seed head of an opium poppy a federal crime In This Is Your Mind on Plants, Michael Pollan dives deep into three plant drugs opium, caffeine, and mescaline and throws the fundamental strangeness, and arbitrariness, of our thinking about them into sharp relief. Exploring and participating in the cultures that have grown up around these drugs while consuming (or, in the case of caffeine, trying not to consume) them, Pollan reckons with the powerful human attraction to psychoactive plants. Why do we go to such great lengths to seek these shifts in consciousness, and then why do we fence that universal desire with laws and customs and fraught feelings In this unique blend of history, science, and memoir, as well as participatory journalism, Pollan examines and experiences these plants from several very different angles and contexts, and shines a fresh light on a subject that is all too often treated reductively as a drug, whether licit or illicit. But that is one of the least interesting things you can say about these plants, Pollan shows, for when we take them into our bodies and let them change our minds, we are engaging with nature in one of the most profound ways we can. Based in part on an essay published almost twenty-five years ago, this groundbreaking and singular consideration of psychoactive plants, and our attraction to them through time, holds up a mirror to our fundamental human needs and aspirations, the operations of our minds, and our entanglement with the natural world. 273 pp. Englisch.
