Bullsh t Book Review:

Compelling trivia for our age of disinformation American culture is awash in lies. Despite the fact that we have the truth at our fingertips at all times, Americans still believe lies about everything from health to politics to science to business. Kate Adams's clever trivia book debunks the 500 most common untruths and shows readers why we are all so susceptible to misinformation, and also includes a chapter on facts that are true, but seem like bullsh*t. Sample Lies: Left and Right Brain There’s no solid division between hemispheres; the left brain can learn “right-brain skills” and vice versa. Three Wise Men Nowhere in the Bible does it specify that there were three. Flush Rotation A flushed toilet doesn’t drain the other way in the opposite hemisphere. The Coriolis effect doesn’t apply to water in toilets. Einstein was a terrible student and failed mathematics. Albert Einstein actually aced his report cards. His reputation for being a notoriously terrible student? That came from his habit of talking back to his teachers when he felt they were acting too authoritarian. Sample Facts that Seem Like Bullsh*t: A day on Venus is longer than a year. A chicken lived without a head for 18 months. Human children don't get kneecap bones until they're around three years old. A mantis shrimp can punch with the force of a 22-caliber bullet.

Bullshit Jobs Book Review:

From bestselling writer David Graeber—“a master of opening up thought and stimulating debate” (Slate)—a powerful argument against the rise of meaningless, unfulfilling jobs…and their consequences. Does your job make a meaningful contribution to the world? In the spring of 2013, David Graeber asked this question in a playful, provocative essay titled “On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs.” It went viral. After one million online views in seventeen different languages, people all over the world are still debating the answer. There are hordes of people—HR consultants, communication coordinators, telemarketing researchers, corporate lawyers—whose jobs are useless, and, tragically, they know it. These people are caught in bullshit jobs. Graeber explores one of society’s most vexing and deeply felt concerns, indicting among other villains a particular strain of finance capitalism that betrays ideals shared by thinkers ranging from Keynes to Lincoln. “Clever and charismatic” (The New Yorker), Bullshit Jobs gives individuals, corporations, and societies permission to undergo a shift in values, placing creative and caring work at the center of our culture. This book is for everyone who wants to turn their vocation back into an avocation and “a thought-provoking examination of our working lives” (Financial Times).

Eat Bacon Don t Jog Book Review:

This is your brain on Grant Petersen: Every comfortable assumption you have about a subject is turned upside down, and by the time you finish reading you feel challenged, energized, and smarter. In Just Ridethe bible for bicycle riders (Dave Eggers, New York Times Book Review)Petersen debunked the bicycle racing industrial complex and led readers back to the simple joys of getting on a bike. In Eat Bacon, Dont Jog, Petersen upends the last 30 years of conventional health wisdom to offer a clear path to weight loss and fitness. In more than 100 short, compelling directives, Eat Bacon, Dont Jog shows why we should drop the carbs, embrace fat, and hang up our running shoes, with the latest science to back up its claims. Diet and Exercise make up the bulk of the book, with food addressed in essays such as Carbohydrate Primerand why its okay to eat less kaleand Youll Eat Less Often If You Eat More Fat. The exercise chapters begin with Dont Jog (it just makes you hungry and trains muscle to tolerate more jogging while raising stressors like cortisol) and lead to a series of interval-training exercises and a suite of kettlebell lifts that greatly enhance strength and endurance. The balance of the book explains the science of nutrition and includes more than a dozen simple and delicious carb-free recipes. Thirty years ago Grant Petersen was an oat-bran-, egg-white-, lean-meat-eating exercise fanatic who wasnt in great shape despite all that. Today, at sixty, he is in the best shape of his life with the blood panel to prove it.

The Secret Book Review:

The tenth-anniversary edition of the book that changed lives in profound ways, now with a new foreword and afterword. In 2006, a groundbreaking feature-length film revealed the great mystery of the universe—The Secret—and, later that year, Rhonda Byrne followed with a book that became a worldwide bestseller. Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. For the first time, all the pieces of The Secret come together in an incredible revelation that will be life-transforming for all who experience it. In this book, you’ll learn how to use The Secret in every aspect of your life—money, health, relationships, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. You’ll begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that’s within you, and this revelation can bring joy to every aspect of your life. The Secret contains wisdom from modern-day teachers—men and women who have used it to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. By applying the knowledge of The Secret, they bring to light compelling stories of eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles, and achieving what many would regard as impossible.

The Psychosocial Implications of Disney Movies Book Review:

In this volume of 15 articles, contributors from a wide range of disciplines present their analyses of Disney movies and Disney music, which are mainstays of popular culture. The power of the Disney brand has heightened the need for academics to question whether Disney’s films and music function as a tool of the Western elite that shapes the views of those less empowered. Given its global reach, how the Walt Disney Company handles the role of race, gender, and sexuality in social structural inequality merits serious reflection according to a number of the articles in the volume. On the other hand, other authors argue that Disney productions can help individuals cope with difficult situations or embrace progressive thinking. The different approaches to the assessment of Disney films as cultural artifacts also vary according to the theoretical perspectives guiding the interpretation of both overt and latent symbolic meaning in the movies. The authors of the 15 articles encourage readers to engage with the material, showcasing a variety of views about the good, the bad, and the best way forward.

Kidding Book Review:

Kidding is the new adulting. Consider this your permission slip to relax, laugh, and finally find happiness. At once hilarious, irreverent, and downright inspiring, Kidding shows you how to connect with your inner child to make your mundane, complicated adult life much simpler (and happier). It's a book about using your imagination and creativity to find joy, and about being happier by being who you are-which is to say, by being a big kid at heart. Author Laura Jane Williams argues that you can be an adult but still embrace childlike (not childish) tendencies: you can own your own home and still want to build a pillow fort when the mood strikes; you can pay your bills on time and still snuggle something soft against your face because you're sad; you can run a business and still take time to play. Divided into 40 short lessons, it's an accessible, fun introduction to the self-help world that anyone can stomach. Laura's experience as a nanny to three young, precocious children has transformed her view on life, and in this book she passes along the lessons she's learned from them. Because kids live in the present. They lose themselves in what they love, they show off, and they like themselves. Kids are curious by default, and they don't have limits because they haven't learned they exist yet. Kids do whatever the f*ck they want, precisely because they want to. To put it simply, kids have the answers, man.

Man Up Book Review:

"But I can't . . ." "There's no way . . ." "It's impossible . . ." Enough. Get off your ass and make your "someday" goals a priority—today. After years of coaching and consulting hundreds of startup rookies as well as seasoned entrepreneurs, executives, and CEOs, Bedros Keuilian realized that most people who want to start a business, grow an existing business, author a book, make more money, or make a bigger impact usually take the long, slow, painful way to get there . . . and more than 80 percent of entrepreneurs never get to their desired destination or achieve their full potential in business. They treat their dream as if it were merely a hobby and dip their toes in the water, but they never commit to diving in—you get the idea. It's time to cut the bullshit excuses. Everyone has a gift, a purpose. It's your duty to figure out what your gift is and how you're going to share it with the world. Man Up: How to Cut the Bullshit and Kick Ass in Business (and in Life) is your guide to doing exactly that. Keuilian, founder and CEO of Fit Body Boot Camp and known as the "hidden genius" behind many of the most successful brands and businesses throughout multiple industries, will show you how to break out of the sea of mediocrity, get singularly focused on your purpose, and do what it takes—not only to achieve but dominate your goals. With Keuilian's no-nonsense approach in both business and personal spheres, you'll be able to define your purpose and have clarity of vision—and a plan—to make the quantum leap. Whether it's creating and growing a company, leaving a legacy, making a difference, or launching a new brand, you will discover how to use your passion, purpose, and sheer grit to overcome any adversity that attempts to derail your progress. If there's an area of your life in which you need to man up, this book will get you there.

Brutal Truths Book Review:

After three internationally acclaimed books, Simon unleashes the 'Brutal Truths' about the way society has changed globally. Beyond COVID-19, society is facing a much bigger threat in 2021, accentuated by the pandemic, but evolving through 20 years of 'borrowed beliefs';We are a civilisation in decay through over civilisation. Simon believes there are 6 Brutal Truths holding us back in today's society. We're mentally weak, not mentally ill We've lost our tribes - we're not in this together We're not equal - life's a scoreboard We're still animals We need heroes We're not racists - we're labellers Brutal Truths will divide people like few books do and tackles every societal taboo from racism, to mental illness, to religion and minority thinking controlling the majority. It is designed to provoke feeling and to force people to take a side. Simon examines in great detail why things don't make sense anymore and amid this craziness there is only one thing we can do: go back to the simple notion of knowing where you stand as the world goes by. What do you believe? What is your truth, your values, your ethics, your best play? Simon Hammond is one of Australia's most sought after keynote speakers and commentators on branding, consumer behaviour and his unique social insights. His presentations are thought-provoking, stimulating and creative. He is currently chairman of 50 Crates Creative Agency and chairs the YMCA's National Belief Council.

I ll Be Fine by Breakfast Book Review:

'I'll Be Fine By Breakfast' is a collection of poems, written by 16 year-old, Natalie Aji. "...these poems may not contain a lot of optimism, silly rhymes, far fetched metaphorical ideas, or the plain advice telling you to never give up on him, and all that other bullshit you get. I am warning you from now. This book contains my raw, real, blunt harsh thoughts. You must know, everything is temporary." "I can write an entire book, filled with the words you've told me. Dedicate an entire chapter grasping your eyes. I could flood pages with thoughts of you, just to pour words you've built up in my bones. All because you love me, well, you once did." .....and so she did. It's crazy what a view simple words can do for you.
