            Civilization rests on a series of successful conversations. -Sam Harris Neuroscientist, philosopher, podcaster and bestselling author Sam Harris, has been exploring some of the greatest questions concerning the human mind, society, and the events that shape our world. Harris' sea...rch for deeper understanding of how we think has led him to engage and exchange with some of our most brilliant and controversial contemporary minds - Daniel Kahneman, Robert Sapolsky, Anil Seth and Max Tegmark - in order to unpack and understand ideas of consciousness, free will, extremism, and ethical living. For Harris, honest conversation, no matter how difficult or contentious, represents the only path to moral and intellectual progress. Featuring twelve conversations from the hit podcast, these electric exchanges fuse wisdom with rigorous interrogation to shine a light on what it means to make sense of our world today.

            With the ever-increasing flood of data and stimuli surrounding us, we've outsourced much of our everyday thinking and decision-making to experts and technology. Too much, says Harvard lecturer and author Vikram Mansharamani, who starkly illustrates how we've lost our ability to t...hink independently, and shows how we can regain self-reliant thinking in a transformed information landscape. Timely topic that will resonate broadly with a general audience. Rich, vivid stories ranging across business, sports, arts, and everyday life. Thought-provoking argument that will inspire readers to stop and think about how they view and act upon information in daily life. Well-written and engaging. Audience: Broad audience of managers, executives, and general intelligent readers interested in decision-making and in how technology and our data-flooded world have changed the way we think. In this sense, the book is in the vein of tech skeptics like Nick Carr, but offering a positive vision for how to regain self-reliant thinking.

            The internet is a network of physical cables and connections, a web of wires enmeshing the world, connecting huge data centres to one another and eventually to us. All are owned by someone, financed by someone, regulated by someone. We refer to the internet as abstract from reali...ty. By doing so, we obscure where the real power lies. In this powerful and necessary book, James Ball sets out on a global journey into the inner workings of the System. From the computer scientists to the cable guys, the billionaire investors to the ad men, the intelligence agencies to the regulators, these are the real-life figures powering the internet and pulling the strings of our society. Ball brilliantly shows how an invention once hailed as a democratising force has concentrated power in places it already existed - that the System, in other words, remains the same as it did before.
