            On a wintry day long ago, Renee Morgan walked into the snowy mountains of Lake Tahoe, where she met a man who changed her world forever. Now, nearly half a century later, she must face the facts of who the man was and, ultimately, face the Truth about herself. After the myster...ious death of her husband, Renee's daughters - Brett, Sara and Hadley - become increasingly determined to explore the circumstances of his death, and in doing so tread a dangerous path. If Renee is to protect them, she must evolve in a way she has spent a lifetime avoiding. As they follow the clues, Renee and her daughters come to terms with two Truths, taking each of them on a journey of self-discovery. Renee's discovery blooms in a romance, Sara's through history, Brett's through politics and Hadley's through spirituality, yet they all learn the same two Truths. Truths that can be traced back through time. Truths about who they are, where they come from, and the existence of an extraordinary power.

            The average human lifespan is absurdly, outrageously, insultingly brief: if you live to 80, you have about four thousand weeks on earth. How should we use them best? Of course, nobody needs telling that there isn't enough time. We're obsessed by our lengthening to-do lists, our o...verfilled inboxes, the struggle against distraction, and the sense that our attention spans are shrivelling. Yet we rarely make the conscious connection that these problems only trouble us in the first place thanks to the ultimate time-management problem: the challenge of how best to use our four thousand weeks. Four Thousand Weeks is an uplifting, engrossing and deeply realistic exploration of this problem that draws on philosophy, literature and psychology to cover the past, present and future of our battles with time. It goes far beyond practical tips, and its many revelations will transform the reader's worldview. Drawing on the insights of ancient philosophers, Benedictine monks, artists and authors, Scandinavian social reformers, renegade Buddhist technologists and many others, Oliver Burkeman sets out to realign our relationship with time - and in doing so, to liberate us from its grasp.

            To Be Fair: The Ultimate Guide to Fairness in the 21st Century

            What does it mean 'to be fair', how do we decide what we mean by Fair Play and why does unfairness cause us such anguish? We take it for granted and talk about it constantly, but when fairness is broken, why does its absence gnaw at what it means to be human? Fairness has gone mi...ssing in Western society, Ben Fenton argues in this polemic on the common impulse that holds humanity together. Fenton, one of Britain's most experienced news reporters, defines what we mean by fairness and reveals where it sits in the make-up of our species. He traces the evolution of the instinct to be fair from prehistoric man to Black Lives Matter and explores its place in history, politics, sport, law, business and even in war.
