  • A Garden of Bones

    In 2013, the skeletal remains of two elderly people, William and Patricia Wycherley, were unearthed from the back garden of the house they had mysteriously left 15 years earlier. But why were their relatives still getting Christmas cards from them until the year before they were found? Why were they still on the electoral roll and why were they still replying to letters from their doctor? Suspicion soon falls on their daughter Susan Edwards, who tells a tale of family feud and betrayal, and a freak accident that led to her parents??? deaths and a forced cover-up. But is she telling the truth, or have she and her husband Christopher concocted the story so they can literally get away with murder? Based on real events, A Garden of Bones explores one of the most brutal and notorious murders in recent times and is told through the eyes of a down-at-heel news reporter looking for the scoop that could revive his career, a senior detective hoping for the next step up the greasy career ladder, and Susan Edwards, the downtrodden daughter whose fantasist personality makes it hard to know what is real and what is not.

  • The Bhagavad Gita

    Easwaran???s best-selling translation of the Bhagavad Gita is reliable, readable, and profound. His 55-page introduction places the Gita in its historical context, presents key concepts, and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. This edition includes chapter introductions, notes and a Sanskrit glossary.,Easwaran grew up in the Hindu tradition in India, learned Sanskrit from a young age, and became a professor of English literature before coming to the West. He is a gifted teacher and an authority on the Indian classics and world mysticism. ,The Gita opens, dramatically, on a battlefield, as the warrior Arjuna turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. Yet the Gita is not what it seems ??? it???s not a dialogue between two mythical figures at the dawn of Indian history. ???The battlefield is a perfect backdrop, but the Gita???s subject is the war within, the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage if he or she is to emerge from life victorious.???

  • The Coddling of the American Mind

    A finalist for the 2018 National Book Critics Circle Award in Nonfiction.,A New York Times Notable Book.,Bloomberg Best Book of 2018.,The New York Times bestseller!,Something has been going wrong on many college campuses in the last few years. Speakers are shouted down. Students and professors say they are walking on eggshells and are afraid to speak honestly. Rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are rising???on campus as well as nationally. How did this happen?,First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt show how the new problems on campus have their origins in three terrible ideas that have become increasingly woven into American childhood and education: What doesn???t kill you makes you weaker; always trust your feelings; and life is a battle between good people and evil people. These three Great Untruths contradict basic psychological principles about well-being and ancient wisdom from many cultures. ??Embracing these untruths???and the resulting culture of safetyism???interferes with young people???s social, emotional, and intellectual development. It makes it harder for them to become autonomous adults who are able to navigate the bumpy road of life.,Lukianoff and Haidt investigate the many social trends that have intersected to promote the spread of these untruths. They explore changes in childhood such as the rise of fearful parenting, the decline of unsupervised, child-directed play, and the new world of social media that has engulfed teenagers in the last decade. They examine changes on campus, including the corporatization of universities and the emergence of new ideas about identity and justice. They situate the conflicts on campus within the context of America???s rapidly rising political polarization and dysfunction.,This is a book for anyone who is confused by what is happening on college campuses today, or has children, or is concerned about the growing inability of Americans to live, work, and cooperate across party lines.
