Travels with Epicurus: A Journey to a Greek Island in Search of a Fulfilled Life

AUTHOR : Daniel Klein

PUBLISHER : Penguin Books

Daniel Klein journeys to the Greek island Hydra to discover the secrets of aging happily. Drawing on the lives of his Greek friends, as well as philosophers ranging from Epicurus to Sartre, Klein learns to appreciate old age as a distinct and extraordinarily valuable stage of life. He uncovers simple pleasures that are uniquely available late in life, as well as headier pleasures that only a mature mind can fully appreciate. A travel book, a witty and accessible meditation, and an optimistic guide to living well, “Travels with Epicurus” is a delightful jaunt to the Aegean and through the terrain of old age led by a droll philosopher. A perfect gift book for the holidays, this little treasure is sure to please longtime fans of “Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar” and garner new ones, young and old.

Flight Behavior

AUTHOR : Barbara Kingsolver

PUBLISHER : Harper

Dellarobia Turnbow is a restless farm wife who gave up her own plans when she accidentally became pregnant at 17. Now, after a decade of domestic disharmony on a failing farm, she has settled for permanent disappointment but seeks momentary escape through an obsessive flirtation with a younger man. She hikes up a mountain road behind her house toward a secret tryst, but instead encounters a shocking sight: a silent, forested valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire. She can only understand it as a cautionary miracle, but it sparks a raft of other explanations from scientists, religious leaders and the media. The bewildering emergency draws rural farmers into unexpected acquaintance with urbane journalists, opportunists, sightseers and a striking biologist with his own stake in the outcome. As the community lines up to judge the woman and her miracle, Dellarobia confronts her family, her church, her town and a larger world, in a flight toward truth that could undo all she has ever believed.

What Matters Now: How to Win in a World of Relentless Change, Ferocious Competition, and Unstoppable Innovation

AUTHOR : Gary Hamel

PUBLISHER : Jossey-Bass

“Gary Hamel delivers again. He challenges organizational orthodoxies and creates a sharp gap between what the future holds and the status quo. “What Matters Now” fits my definition of a true innovation: it is unique and compelling, creates advantage because it’s ahead of the curve, and provides a significant value for leaders by underscoring what it takes to succeed in the 21st century,” writes Jeff M. Fettig, CEO of Whirlpool. Daniel H. Pink, comments, “What Matters Now is an exciting tapas bar of a book, packed with nuggets of unconventional wisdom, tempting plates of inspiring advice, and several bracing shots of bold ideas. Gary Hamel is a legend in the world of management thinking - and this book reminds us why.”
