E-BOOK EXCERPT

An insightful exploration of what social media, AI, robot technology, and the digital world are doing to our relationships with each other and with ourselves. There's no doubt that technology has made it easier to communicate. It's also easier to shut someone out when we are confronted with online discourse. Why bother to understand strangers--or even acquaintances--when you can troll them, block them, or just click "Unfriend" and never look back? However briefly satisfying that might be, it's also potentially eroding one of our most human traits: empathy. So what does the future look like when something so vital to a peaceful, healthy, and productive society is fading away? The cautionary, yet hopeful, answer is in this champion for an endangered emotion. In The Future of Feeling, Kaitlin Ugolik Phillips shares her own personal stories as well as those of doctors, entrepreneurs, teachers, journalists, and scientists about moving innovation and technology forward without succumbing to isolation. This book is for anyone interested in how our brains work, how they're subtly being rewired to work differently, and what that ultimately means for us as humans.

When Wharton MBA Jooyun Hong went seeking the true secret of creating wealth, she found herself studying under a mysterious Korean guru who advises the 1% of South Korea. She now shares what she learned in this life-changing narrative- feel the joys of what you have and spend your money according to this feeling. Suh Yoon Lee was identified as a wealth guru at the age of six by her grandmother, and set off on a course of study--ranging from Asian classical texts to economics to an analysis of 100,000 case studies--to learn the methods for becoming truly rich. Although a bestselling author in South Korea and famed advisor to the 1%, Suh Yoon Lee had retreated into seclusion, troubled by the impact her guidance to the wealthy may have on income disparity around the world. Jooyun Hong has devoted her adult life to understanding how to build personal wealth without an inheritance in an era of increasing inequality. She emailed the guru asking for an interview, not expecting a response. Instead, the guru invited her to Lake Como, Italy, for a conversation. This invitation set off a life-changing series of lessons about how anyone can apply the true secret of wealth to their lives. In spectacular destinations ranging from Paris to Tokyo, this intimate narrative traces the growing friendship between these two women in a series of conversations that create a framework for the everyday person to experience the ease and comfort of wealth. The guru cuts an enigmatic figure in the narrative, and her counterintuitive guidance is premised on the notion that almost all people have the capacity to attain 3 to 7 million dollars--and some have a capacity for much more. And that journey begins with feeling what you already have. As Jooyun applies the guru's practical lessons in her everyday life, she experiences a transformation of her mood, fulfillment, and, ultimately, her net worth--a transformation available to anyone who practices the system of Having.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

The recognition of animal pain and stress, once controversial, is now acknowledged by legislation in many countries, but there is no formal recognition of animals' ability to feel pleasure. Pleasurable Kingdom is the first book for lay-readers to present new evidence that animals--like humans--enjoy themselves. It debunks the popular perception that life for most is a continuous, grim struggle for survival and the avoidance of pain. Instead it suggests that creatures from birds to baboons feel good thanks to play, sex, touch, food, anticipation, comfort, aesthetics, and more. Combining rigorous evidence, elegant argument and amusing anecdotes, leading animal behavior researcher Jonathan Balcombe proposes that the possibility of positive feelings in creatures other than humans has important ethical ramifications for both science and society.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Wall Street Journal Bestseller! Next Big Idea Club selection―chosen by Malcolm Gladwell, Susan Cain, Dan Pink, and Adam Grant as one of the "two most groundbreaking new nonfiction reads of the season!" "A must-read that topples the idea that emotions don't belong in the workplace." --Susan Cain, author of Quiet A hilarious guide to effectively expressing your emotions at the office, finding fulfillment, and defining work-life balance on your own terms. How do you stop the office grouch from ruining your day? How do you enjoy a vacation without obsessing about the unanswered emails in your inbox? If you're a boss, what should you do when your new, eager hire wants to follow you on Instagram? The modern workplace can be an emotional minefield, filled with confusing power structures and unwritten rules. We're expected to be authentic, but not too authentic. Professional, but not stiff. Friendly, but not an oversharer. Easier said than done! As both organizational consultants and regular people, we know what it's like to experience uncomfortable emotions at work - everything from mild jealousy and insecurity to panic and rage. Ignoring or suppressing what you feel hurts your health and productivity -- but so does letting your emotions run wild. Our goal in this book is to teach you how to figure out which emotions to toss, which to keep to yourself, and which to express in order to be both happier and more effective. We'll share some surprising new strategies, such as: * Be selectively vulnerable: Be honest about how you feel, but don't burden others with your deepest problems. * Remember that your feelings aren't facts: What we say isn't always what we mean. In times of conflict and miscommunication, try to talk about your emotions without getting emotional. * Be less passionate about your job: Taking a chill pill can actually make you healthier and more focused. Drawing on what we've learned from behavioral economics, psychology, and our own experiences at countless organizations, we'll show you how to bring your best self (and your whole self) to work every day.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

A story of love and memory. On a train journey from Paris to Madrid a young opera singer becomes fascinated by those in his compartment: a middle-aged businessman, his alluring wife and their male traveling companion. Soon his life of constant travel, luxury hotels, rehearsal and performance will become entangled with these three people, and the singer will find himself fatefully consumed by Natalia's beauty. The Man of Feeling is the haunting story of the birth and death of a passion, told in retrospect. Intricately interweaving desire and memory, it explores the nature of love, and asks whether we can ever truly recall something that no longer exists.
