Perpetually bored, anxious, fatigued, and overweight, modern society has failed to deliver the happiness it promised. The remedy, Jevan Pradas argues, is in a unique synthesis of a Paleolithic lifestyle and Buddhist meditation. A sprawling journey, featuring Jevan's adventures with naked Amazonian tribes and retreats with enlightened monks to learn the secrets of optimal well-being, The Awakened Ape will teach you how to achieve deep states of bliss. All while shaping your body into the fit and healthy animal millions of years of evolution programmed you to be.

Much better and easier to digest than first anticipated. Well worth the listen. Even if you don't get the meditation aspect, it's still an interesting perspective on the concept of obtaining contentment in life.

No one is born a leader. But through sheer determination and by confronting life’s challenges, Ant Middleton has come to know the meaning of true leadership. In First Man In, he shares the core lessons he’s learned over the course of his fascinating, exhilarating life. Special forces training is no walk in the park. The rules are strict, and they make sure you learn the hard way, pushing you beyond the limits of what is physically possible. There is no mercy. Even when you are bleeding and broken, to admit defeat is failure.

This charming story about a penguin colony in Antarctica illustrates key truths about how deal with the issue of change: handle the challenge well and you can prosper greatly; handle it poorly and you put yourself at risk.

A simple story which sets you up for some rethinking in your life or in work...or in both.

Prominent English social critic Peter Hitchens writes of the period between the death of Winston Churchill and the funeral of Princess Diana, a time he believes has seen disastrous changes in English life. The Abolition of Britain is bitingly witty and fiercely argued, yet also filled with somber appreciation for what the idea of England has always meant to the West and to the world.

Patriot or otherwise, you may not agree with all of the content. However, it is important to understand that every action has it's consequences, good and bad. Prior to implementing changes in social fabric, institutions and/or values, the outcomes need to be assessed over the longer term and should never be guided by the fashion of the time. This is difficult, if at all possible and change can happen subconsciously for many. And as with any large collective process, once a course has been set, it's difficult or near impossible to change it. Is it too late to revert some of the changes? Probably.
