              The Existentialist's Survival Guide: How to Live Authentically in an Inauthentic Age (EPUB ebook)

              By Marino, Gordon; Read by Knezevich, Joe

              "When it comes to living, there's no getting out alive. But books can help us survive, so to speak, by passing on what is most important about being human before we perish. In The Existentialist's Survival Guide, Marino has produced an honest and moving book of self-help for read...ers generally disposed to loathe the genre." -The Wall Street JournalSophisticated self-help for the 21st century-when every crisis feels like an existential crisisSoren Kierkegaard, Frederick Nietzsche, Jean-Paul Sartre, and other towering figures of existentialism grasped that human beings are, at heart, moody creatures, susceptible to an array of psychological setbacks, crises of faith, flights of fancy, and other emotional ups and downs. Rather than understanding moods-good and bad alike-as afflictions to be treated with pharmaceuticals, this swashbuckling group of thinkers generally known as existentialists believed that such feelings not only offer enduring lessons about living a life of integrity, but also help us discern an inner spark that can inspire spiritual development and personal transformation. To listen to Kierkegaard and company, how we grapple with these feelings shapes who we are, how we act, and, ultimately, the kind of lives we lead.InThe Existentialist's Survival Guide, Gordon Marino, director of the Hong Kierkegaard Library at St. Olaf College and boxing correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, recasts the practical takeaways existentialism offers for the twenty-first century. From negotiating angst, depression, despair, and death to practicing faith, morality, and love, Marino dispenses wisdom on how to face existence head-on while keeping our hearts intact, especially when the universe feels like it's working against us and nothing seems to matter. What emerges are life-altering and, in some cases, lifesaving epiphanies-existential prescriptions for living with integrity, courage, and authenticity in an increasingly chaotic, uncertain, and inauthentic age.

              An urgent, fascinating exploration of warfare-past, present and future-and what we must do if we want to win today from an 82nd Airborne veteran, former private military contractor, and professor of war studies at the National Defense University War is timeless. Some things chang...e-weapons, tactics, technology, leadership, objectives-but our desire to go into battle does not. We are living in the age of Durable Disorder-a period of unrest created by numerous factors: China's rise, Russia's resurgence, America's retreat, global terrorism, international criminal empires, climate change, dwindling natural resources, and bloody civil wars. Sean McFate has been on the front lines of deep state conflicts and has studied and taught the history and practice of war. He's seen firsthand the horrors of battle and understands the depth and complexity of the current global military situation. This devastating turmoil has given rise to difficult questions. What is the future of war? How can we survive? If Americans are drawn into major armed conflict, can we win? McFate calls upon the legends of military study Carl von Clausewitz, Sun Tzu, and others, as well as his own experience, and carefully constructs the new rules for the future of military engagement, the ways we can fight and win in an age of entropy: one where corporations, mercenaries, and rogue states have more power and 'nation states' have less. With examples from the Roman conquest, World War II, Vietnam, Afghanistan and others, he tackles the differences between conventional and future war, the danger in believing that technology will save us, the genuine leverage of psychological and 'shadow' warfare, and much more. McFate's new rules distill the essence of war today, describing what it is in the real world, not what we believe or wish it to be. Some of these principles are ancient, others are new, but all will permanently shape war now and in the future. By following them he argues, we can prevail. But if we do no

              In this urgent sequel to his New York Times bestseller The End of Overeating--a call to arms that will change the way we eat--Dr. David A. Kessler explains why Americans suffer in unprecedented numbers from obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and other debilitating illnesses, and o...ffers concrete solutions for reducing cardiovascular problems, keeping weight off, and curtailing chronic disease.The American body is in trouble. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States today, and millions are plagued by conditions like obesity and diabetes. But we have the answer to improving health and longevity: 1) cut out fast carbs (processed foods); 2) reduce saturated fats; 3) exercise regularly. Though the solution is simple, the difficulty lies in the food we eat. Multi-billion-dollar processing plants and food manufacturers dot the heartland and work to increase the profits of the industrialized farming business--Big Agriculture--that produces excess corn and wheat. Today, we are being fed highly palatable, ultra-processed carbohydrates as food products--fast carbs--that are often marketed as healthy. Fast carbs are primarily starches and sugars produced during food processing and are present in much of what we eat. By destroying the healthy structure of whole food and increasing the amount of rapidly digestible starch it contains, these products bypass our body's metabolic pathways. When combined with the ill-effects of saturated fats, we are putting ourselves on a collision course with weight gain, insulin resistance, digestive issues, heart disease, and more. The problem is, most of us don't know where these fast carbs and saturated fats lurk in our daily diets. Accessible and eye-opening, Fast Carbs, Slow Carbs provides the information we need to understand exactly what we are eating--and to learn the truth about what it being sold to us as healthy food. Rising above the confusing range of specific popular diets--Keto, Paleo, Mediterranean, Vegan, V

              In this eye-opening and provocative book, Michael O'Leary and Warren Valdmanis take a groundbreaking journey to the beating heart of our economy, where they reveal why capitalism is failing our country, explore the flaws that make our current solutions insufficient, and propose a...n ambitious and compelling vision to rebuild our corporations around a deeper purpose.Capitalism is broken, but the tools we are relying on to fix it--corporate social responsibility, divestment, impact investing, and government control--risk making things worse, argue two iconoclastic impact investors. The cynics are those blinded by the defunct ideology that private vice makes for public virtue, that any effort to make markets more moral is empty marketing to make more money. The fools are those who ignore economic reality, preferring to chase false utopias than confront the role for-profit corporations must play in our society. And the pioneers? They are the visionary few cutting through the BS to push out the frontier of responsible capitalism. The root of the problem is the nexus between business owners and managers. Until we change the mandate that owners give to their companies, reform will prove superficial. We need to re-charter our companies to maximize profit only in pursuit of some deeper social purpose--health care companies should heal us, food companies should nourish us, finance companies should enrich us. We need to empower boards as independent stewards of that purpose and rebuild our corporations to profit only in ways that benefit society and the environment. Markets are only as amoral as we are. If we, as individuals, expect the economy to reflect our values, we must re-integrate our moral and economic lives. We must combine the civic duty of citizenship with the free market. In this trenchant and revelatory exploration, O'Leary and Valdmanis offer three strikingly original rules that would harness competition to make capitalism both prosperous and good.
