            In industrialized nations, our increasingly sedentary lifestyles have led to skyrocketing rates of obesity and diabetes; the answer, we are told, is exercise - voluntary physical activity for the sake of health. We pay our dues on the treadmill. But this notion of exercise would ...baffle many people around the world, who undertake daily hours of physical activity simply to get enough to eat. Indeed, the Western approach to exercise is marred by misconceptions, overstatements, anxieties and finger-pointing. Drawing on over a decade of detailed research, Lieberman debunks our myths about fitness, speed, strength and endurance. Offering insights from our ancestry and other cultures, he points the way towards physical activity as the source of a long, relaxed, sociable and healthy life.

            Why did the sacking of rugby player Israel Folau over his social media posts become one of the nation's most polarizing controversies? How could one man's religious views activate so many people in modern Australia? And what does the sides people found themselves on tell us about... the kind of country we've become? Starting with this striking incident, triple Walkley Award winning journalist Malcolm Knox paints a vivid portrait of the divisions that underlie our recent history, from marriage equality to the covid lockdown. He shows how free speech has become the new flashpoint of the 'culture wars', and how it remains our deepest national faultline.
