A moral philosopher's meditations on some of life's most important questionsWe've all had to puzzle over such profound matters as birth, death, regret, free will, agency, and love. How might philosophy help us think through these vital concerns? In On Being Me, renowned moral philosopher J. David Velleman presents a concise, accessible, and intimate exploration into subjects that we care deeply about, offering compelling insights into what it means to be human.Each of Velleman's short, personal chapters begins with a theme: "Being Glad I Was Born," "Wanting to Go On," "Fearing the End," "Regretting What Might Have Been," "Aspiring to Authorship," "Making Things Happen," and "Wanting to Be Loved." Reflecting on how daily life presents us with thorny riddles that need working out, Velleman arrives at unexpected conclusions about survival and personal identity, the self and its future, time and morality, the rationality of regret, free will and personal efficacy, and goodness and love. He shows that we can rely on our own powers of thought to arrive at a better understanding of the most fundamental parts of ourselves-and that the methods of philosophy can help get us there.Beautifully illustrated by New Yorker contributing artist Emily Bernstein, On Being Me invites us to approach life philosophically.

____________________________ Why are self-confident ignoramuses so often believed? Why are thoughtful experts so often given the cold shoulder? And why do apparently irrelevant details such as a person's height, their relative wealth, or their Facebook photo influence whether or not we trust what they are saying? When deciding whether or not someone is worth listening to, we think we carefully weigh their words and arguments. But those are far from being the only factors that hold sway with us. In this groundbreaking new book behavioural experts Stephen Martin and Joseph Marks pinpoint the eight powerful traits that determine who gets heard and who gets ignored. They show how such apparently irrelevant details as a person's appearance or their financial status influence our response to what they have to say, regardless of its wisdom or foolishness. They explain how trust is won, even when it may not be deserved. They analyse the nature of the charismatic speaker and the verbal and physical cues they employ. And they demonstrate how the tiniest of signals - from the shoes we wear, to the pitch of our voice and the warmth of our smile - can transform how others perceive us and so determine whether they are prepared to pay heed to what we have to say. Above all, Martin and Marks show how looking and sounding right is often far more persuasive than actually being right. In a world of ambiguity, uncertainty and fake news they compellingly demonstrate how, increasingly, the Messenger is the Message. ____________________________ 'A tour de force. Timely and thoroughly researched.' Professor Robert Cialdini, author of Influence and Pre-suasion 'Messengers is engaging, informative and entertaining. It will change the way you think about who you follow and take advice from. But why would you listen to me? Read their book to find out.' Professor Tali Sharot, author of The Optimism Bias and The Influential Mind 'A powerful, profoundly illuminating exploration of one of the most important subjects of our time. Martin and Marks have a terrific talent for combining evidence and research with lively and vivid writing. Trust these messengers!' Cass R. Sunstein, Robert Walmsley University Professor, Harvard University, and author of Conformity 'Fascinating' The Economist 'Zeitgeisty' Financial Times, Business Book of the Month 'Messengers is a crucial reminder that the messenger is as important as the message. Superficial indicators count.' PR Week

____________________________ Why can some people effortlessly command the attention of everyone in the room? What makes some individuals seem immediately credible and others appear inherently untrustworthy? And how is it that precisely the same idea can be enthusiastically embraced or roundly rejected depending on who has put it forward? When we talk to others, we assume that they are carefully weighing our words and arguments. But these are far from being the only factors that hold sway. In this groundbreaking new book, bestselling behavioural scientists Stephen Martin and Joseph Marks explore the eight powerful human traits that help determine whether what we have to say gets heard or lands on deaf ears. They show how seemingly irrelevant details about our demeanour influence others' responses. They explain how trust is won, even when it may not be deserved. They show how the most trivial of signals - like the shape of our face, the shoes we wear or the car we drive - can influence how people respond to us. And in a world of uncertainty and fake news they demonstrate how, increasingly, the Messenger is the Message. 'Some books make us better citizens. Others make us better at our jobs. This amazing book does both!' Dan Pink, author of When, Drive and To Sell is Human ____________________________ 'A tour de force. Timely and thoroughly researched.'

When You Reach Me

By sixth grade Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a kid on the street, the apartment key that Miranda's mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. Then a mysterious note arrives. The notes keep coming, and Miranda realizes that whoever is leaving them knows things no one should. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death. Until the final note makes her think she's too late."Like A Wrinkle in Time (Miranda's favorite book), When You Reach Me far surpasses the usual whodunit or sci-fi adventure to become an incandescent exploration of 'life, death, and the beauty of it all.'" -The Washington Post This Newbery Medal winner that has been called "smart and mesmerizing," (The New York Times) and "superb" (The Wall Street Journal) will appeal to readers of all types, especially those who are looking for a thought-provoking mystery with a mind-blowing twist. Shortly after a fall-out with her best friend, sixth grader Miranda starts receiving mysterious notes, and she doesn't know what to do. The notes tell her that she must write a letter-a true story, and that she can't share her mission with anyone. It would be easy to ignore the strange messages, except that whoever is leaving them has an uncanny ability to predict the future. If that is the case, then Miranda has a big problem-because the notes tell her that someone is going to die, and she might be too late to stop it. Winner of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Fiction A New York Times Bestseller and Notable Book Five Starred Reviews A Junior Library Guild Selection "Absorbing." -People "Readers ... are likely to find themselves chewing over the details of this superb and intricate tale long afterward." -The Wall Street Journal "Lovely and almost impossibly clever." -The Philadelphia Inquirer "It's easy to imagine readers studying Miranda's story as many times as she's read L'Engle's, and spending hours pondering the provocative questions it raises." -Publishers Weekly, Starred review
