Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

image 8.7

2012 | Brené Brown

Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives. “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable, or to dare greatly. Whether the arena is a new relationship, an important meeting, our creative process, or a difficult family conversation, we must find the courage to walk into vulnerability and engage with our whole hearts. In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on twelve years of research, she argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection. The book that Dr. Brown’s many fans have been waiting for, Daring Greatly will spark a new spirit of truth—and trust—in our organizations, families, schools, and communities.

Ikke til forhandling - livets ligning

2020 | Chris MacDonald

HVORFOR bliver stadigt flere af os syge, stressede og angste, selvom vi aldrig har haft bedre muligheder for at stortrives, både fysisk og mentalt? Danmarks mest populære sundhedsformidler, humanfysiolog Chris MacDonald, har brugt de seneste 20 år på at gruble og grave i menneskets urgamle genetik for at finde svaret på dette vigtige spørgsmål. Denne bog er hans bud på en løsning – et monumentalt og meget personligt manifest fyldt med tankevækkende humor og håb. Chris MacDonald forklarer, hvorfor vi gambler med en række naturlige forudsætninger for vores trivsel. Med sit legendariske fortælletalent fører han os langt tilbage i tiden til menneskets urfjeld og til fjerne egne af kloden, hvor hverdagen er skruet anderledes sammen, og vi følger hans samtaler med verdens førende sundhedseksperter for at finde løsninger på de mismatch-problemer, vi har bragt os selv i. Chris MacDonald får os til at se på os selv med helt nye øjne og ruster os til at blive bedre overlevere. Han giver os mod til at sige fra, når verden omkring os bliver så skør og naturstridig, at den kan skade os, og inspirerer os til at tage de valg i hverdagen, som er forudsætningen for vores trivsel. Ikke mindst når det gælder søvn, kost og motion. ”I en tid, hvor den materielle velstand er høj, men den fysiske og mentale trivsel bekymrende lav, er der brug for grundige analyser af problemet baseret på indsigt i mennesket og dets evolutionære fortid. En sådan leverer Chris MacDonald i denne spændende nye bog. Den er renset for overfladiske quickfix-løsninger, men til gengæld graver den dybt i fortiden og den menneskelige natur for at skabe en fremtid, hvor mennesker kan trives.” SVEND BRINKMANN, professor i psykologi, forfatter og foredragsholder. “Denne bog er måske den vigtigste bog, du nogen sinde vil komme til at læse om vores fysiske og mentale sundhed.” BENTE KLARLUND PEDERSEN, overlæge og professor ”Chris MacDonald er et af de allermest visionære mennesker, jeg kender på sundhedsområdet, og så har han et langt mere holistisk syn på mennesker og deres sundhed, end medierne tit giver indtryk af. Sundhed handler ifølge Chris MacDonald ikke bare om motion, salat og viljestyrke; sindet skal også med. Jeg kan ikke være mere enig. Chris MacDonald er en ganske, ganske særlig brik i mit sundhedsfaglige netværk. Det er altid sundt at lytte til ham.” PETER QVORTRUP

21 Lessons for the 21st Century

image 8.2

2018 | Yuval Noah Harari

In Sapiens, he explored our past. In Homo Deus, he looked to our future. Now, one of the most innovative thinkers on the planet turns to the present to make sense of today's most pressing issues. How do computers and robots change the meaning of being human? How do we deal with the epidemic of fake news? Are nations and religions still relevant? What should we teach our children? Yuval Noah Harari's 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is a probing and visionary investigation into today's most urgent issues as we move into the uncharted territory of the future. As technology advances faster than our understanding of it, hacking becomes a tactic of war, and the world feels more polarized than ever, Harari addresses the challenge of navigating life in the face of constant and disorienting change and raises the important questions we need to ask ourselves in order to survive. In twenty-one accessible chapters that are both provocative and profound, Harari builds on the ideas explored in his previous books, untangling political, technological, social, and existential issues and offering advice on how to prepare for a very different future from the world we now live in: How can we retain freedom of choice when Big Data is watching us? What will the future workforce look like, and how should we ready ourselves for it? How should we deal with the threat of terrorism? Why is liberal democracy in crisis? Harari's unique ability to make sense of where we have come from and where we are going has captured the imaginations of millions of readers. Here he invites us to consider values, meaning, and personal engagement in a world full of noise and uncertainty. When we are deluged with irrelevant information, clarity is power. Presenting complex contemporary challenges clearly and accessibly, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is essential reading.

En kvinde ser på mænd der ser på kvinder

2016 | Siri Hustvedt

A compelling and radical collection of essays on art, feminism, neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy from prize-winning novelist Siri Hustvedt, the acclaimed author of The Blazing World and What I Loved. Siri Husvedt has always been fascinated by biology and how human perception works. She is a lover of art, the humanities, and the sciences. She is a novelist and a feminist. Her lively, lucid essays in A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women begin to make some sense of those plural perspectives. Divided into three parts, the first section, “A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women,” investigates the perceptual and gender biases that affect how we judge art, literature, and the world in general. Among the legendary figures considered are Picasso, De Kooning, Jeff Koons, Louise Bourgeoisie, Anselm Kiefer, Susan Sontag, Robert Mapplethorpe, the Guerrilla Girls, and Karl Ove Knausgaard. The second part, “The Delusions of Certainty,” is about the age-old mind/body problem that has haunted Western philosophy since the Greeks. Hustvedt explains the relationship between the mental and the physical realms, showing what lies beyond the argument—desire, belief, and the imagination. The final section, “What Are We? Lectures on the Human Condition,” discusses neurological disorders and the mysteries of hysteria. Drawing on research in sociology, neurobiology, history, genetics, statistics, psychology, and psychiatry, this section also contains a profound and powerful consideration of suicide. There has been much talk about building a beautiful bridge across the chasm that separates the sciences and the humanities. At the moment, we have only a wobbly walkway, but Hustvedt is encouraged by the travelers making their way across it in both directions. A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women is an insightful account of the journeys back and forth.
