This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate by Naomi Klein
This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate

DANE, April 13, 2015

This incredibly thorough book delves into the link between capitalism and climate change like no other I've read before. You'll go away knowing exactly how we got into the present situation and what needs to change in order for us to get out of it. The remedy might just be too hard for us to swallow though.

Overwhelmed: How to Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time by Brigid Schulte
Overwhelmed: How to Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time

DANE, April 6, 2015

If you're looking for stories of how busy people say they are these days or if you're interested in learning about how people in other countries deal with time-management and priority-setting etc., then this will most likely be interesting for you. If you're looking for practical steps to take in order to free up more time in your own life though, you might be a little disappointed as it's definitely light in that department.

The Moral Arc: How Science and Reason Lead Humanity Toward Truth, Justice, and Freedom by Michael Shermer
The Moral Arc: How Science and Reason Lead Humanity Toward Truth, Justice, and Freedom

DANE, February 27, 2015

Michael Shermer has produced a whopper of a book here. Clocking in at close to 500 pages, it's a serious read. I discovered him a number of years ago when I read The Believing Brain (an absolute MUST-READ) and have kept an eye on him ever since. His newest book examines the progression of morality over the centuries and does an excellent job of showing that we ARE actually getting better as time goes by. In support of this he divides the book into sections and tackles specific examples e.g. societal views on race relations, LGBT communities and women's rights etc. If you regularly shake your head at the state of humanity, take the time to read this and I guarantee you'll feel better by the end of it!

Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years by David A Goodman
Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years

DANE, January 8, 2015

Although I've been a bit of a Star Trek nerd since I was a kid, Federation didn't quite live up to my expectations. The book is a history of the first 150 years of the Federation and is full of information and illustrations of various documents and characters. The description got me quite excited but I was a little let down once I went through it. The style of illustrations won't be to everyone's taste and the text was interesting but not overly so ie. there really isn't anything in it that a fan wouldn't already know. I guess I'm more of a "novel" person. Will be interested to see what others thought of it.
