Act Accordingly is a philosophical framework written to help people become the best possible version of themselves. Rather than proposing a one-size-fits-all code of beliefs or behaviors, the ideas presented in this intentionally concise book encourage readers to question their long-held biases, their definition of confidence, their level of self-sustainability, and the degree to which they allow themselves to evolve their beliefs over time.

A belief in free will touches nearly everything that human beings value. It is difficult to think about law, politics, religion, public policy, intimate relationships, morality—as well as feelings of remorse or personal achievement—without first imagining that every person is the true source of his or her thoughts and actions. And yet the facts tell us that free will is an illusion.

God takes a look at the Earth around the time of the Renaissance, and everything looks pretty good - so he takes a holiday. In heaven time this is just a week's fishing trip, but on Earth several hundred years go by. When God returns, he finds all hell has broken loose: world wars, holocausts, famine, capitalism and "fucking Christians everywhere". There's only one thing for it. They're sending the kid back. JC, reborn, is a struggling musician in New York City, trying to teach the one true commandment: be nice!

Star of QI, Live at the Apollo and Have I Got News for You, German comedy ambassador Henning Wehn gives a hilarious outsider’s view on modern British life compared to his home country. Be it gently mocking this nation's obsession with the housing market or our tendency to laugh off personal failure, Henning is one of the funniest and most popular comedians around. And yes, there might be just the odd mention of the World Cup.

New York Times best-selling author Rob Bell shows us how to discover the greatness we were born for, successfully pursue our dreams, find our paths, and live confident, fulfilled lives. Rob Bell believes that each of us has a path, a calling - whether it's writing a novel, starting a business, joining a band, or simply becoming a volunteer. But many people are afraid to start on that path. Who are we to do that? Bell counters, why not you? We need to learn to turn off the internal and external critics and leap.
