✏So You Think You re Human Book Summary : You think you're human. But what does that mean? How can humanity be defined? Felipe Fernandez-Armesto takes us on an enlightening and provocative journey through the history of humankind to reveal the challenges to our most fundamental belief - that we are, and have always been, human. Fernandez-Armesto investigates advances in artificial intelligence and genetics, and asks what these mean for the future of human values, human rights, and the defence of human dignity. The book illustrates how our concept of humankind has changed over time and how our current understanding of this has been shaken by new challenges from science and philosophy.

✏Do You Think You re Clever Book Summary : What happens if I drop an ant? What books are bad for you? What percentage of the world's water is contained in a cow? The Oxbridge undergraduate interviews are infamous for their unique ways of assessing candidates, and from these peculiar enquiries, professors can tell just how smart you really are. John Farndon has collected together 75 of the most intriguing questions taken from actual admission interviews and gives full answers to each, taking the reader through the fascinating histories, philosophies, sciences and arts that underlie each problem. This is a book for everyone who likes to think they're clever, or who thinks they'd like to be clever. And cleverness is not just knowing stuff, it's how laterally, deeply and interestingly you can bend your brain. Guesstimating the population of Croydon, for example, opens a chain of thought from which you can predict the strength of a nuclear bomb ...and that's just the start of it.

✏So You Think You re Ready Book Summary : My motive for writing this book is to restore the unity of the African-American family. There are values that we have strayed away from. So many African-Americans are not getting married because they fear that it will not work out. For those that do get married, fewer and fewer of those marriages are lasting. A great number of people get married with the mindset that if it doesn’t work out they will just get a divorce. By having that mindset they are going into the marriage with an attitude of defeat. As I look around our nation, I see so many families breaking apart, thereby destroying future generations. We do what looks good, feels good, and whatever makes us happy as individuals. We are molding our next generation into self-centered out of control individuals going nowhere fast. The morals and values of our ancestors are almost extinct. The desire of my heart is for us to stop hurting and damaging one another. It’s a catastrophic domino effect that seems like a never ending nightmare! We have to take the time to sit back and realize our selfishness only preps the next person for the same, or preps them to feel there’s no way out of being nice and loving people and getting hurt, being someone’s doormat! I wish to help restore the worth of our men and women; to revive the black community, putting things into proper perspective so that people who get married can STAY married, and for those that aren’t married and are afraid of the marriage failing, to break free of that fear and fulfill their desire to be married. We don’t have to accept a dysfunctional family as the norm! In order to establish and maintain a healthy family, our perspective on life has to be positive, with one main ingredient: love. It is the responsibility of each individual to do what’s necessary to build a strong foundation that will solidify a successful relationship and/or marriage, even while you are still single. It breaks my heart to see so many unhappy people. Whether they are unhappily married or unhappily single, many are miserable and have no clue as to why. In this book I will lay out some things very clearly, step by step, to help you understand why marriages fail, relationships crumb, and fear so gruesomely imprisons us.

✏The Invisible Web Book Summary : Bringing new focus to the subject, THE INVISIBLE WEB investigates the family from a feminist perspective. Using the lens of gender, connections between mothers and daughters, fathers and daughters, mothers and sons, and husbands and wives are analyzed and given new meaning. The authors evaluate and redefine family transitions such as divorce, single-parent and female-headed households, and remarried couples who are attempting to integrate their respective children with ex-spouses and complicated networks of extended kin. They also reexamine traditional and emerging roles for women in their early, middle, and later years. Written in an engaging format, each chapter features an in depth analysis of how gender shapes the relationship in question. This discussion is followed by fascinating vignettes of actual cases from each of the four authors, whose approaches reflect different orientations to therapy. Based on the work of the Women's Project in Family Therapy which won the 1986 AFTA Award for Distinguished Contribution to Family Therapy, this groundbreaking work is an excellent text for courses in family therapy and women's studies, an invaluable guide for mental health practitioners, and an insightful read for anyone who wishes to explore the invisible web of gender patterns in families.

✏The Ecological Thought Book Summary : In this passionate, lucid, and surprising book, Timothy Morton argues that all forms of life are connected in a vast, entangling mesh. This interconnectedness penetrates all dimensions of life. No being, construct, or object can exist independently from the ecological entanglement, Morton contends, nor does “Nature” exist as an entity separate from the uglier or more synthetic elements of life.

✏So You Think You re American Book Summary : Ekina was made in America with African parts, but unfortunately this has never made him indestructible. Precocious at ten years old, Ekina knows that physical strength won’t help him fend off his overbearing parents, cruel teachers, and one-sided romance. It won’t help him save his baby sister from their traditionally-misogynist father or protect his little brother from their mother’s expectations either, although it might’ve helped him master an adagio—if he hadn’t quit ballet class. Nigerian boys don’t wear pointe shoes, and anyway, who does he think he is…an American? “So You Think You’re American” is a novel about growing up in that world between foreign and native cultures. Poignant, funny, and sometimes hopelessly heartbreaking, “So You Think You’re American” will evoke profound emotions, tears or laughter, in even the most stoic of readers.

✏Human Rights Undead Set on Living Book Summary : “It’s not easy being a zombie. I’d only just been turned when I suddenly had conversion targets to meet, death quotas to fill and my team leader getting on my back. This, whilst all the trying to come to terms with being shot at, losing limbs, a body that doesn’t work properly anymore and my newly found addiction to lovely, squishy, juicy brains. It was just too much and my counsellor for the recently deceased hadn’t been any help. But at least it was an ordered, democratic society and I had a place in it, even if it was against my will. That was until the bomb dropped creating the dictatorial, super mutant zombies that took over and now it’s all out war against the humans. The Supers are only interested in the complete annihilation of humankind not the human-zombie paradox. So, why should I care? I’m a zombie right? I want the best for my race. I should hate the humans; want to destroy them as well. However, something told me, this was wrong. For some reason, I had ethics and thoughts that just weren’t in keeping with the status quo. I seemed to have evolved beyond them and I didn’t know why. I didn’t want this war. I didn’t want humans to become extinct. Surely they have rights too? Human Rights! But I was just one zombie in a horde of millions, what could I do…” Written by the co-author of the book 'Souls of Darkness'
