Book Review

"With its surging storyline, extraordinary events, and depth of character, this gripping tale of 120 Chinese boys sent to America…reads more like a novel than an obscure slice of history." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

In 1872, China—ravaged by poverty, population growth, and aggressive European armies—sent 120 boys to America to learn the secrets of Western innovation. They studied at New England’s finest schools and were driven by a desire for progress and reform. When anti-Chinese fervor forced them back home, the young men had to overcome a suspicious imperial court and a country deeply resistant to change in technology and culture. Fortunate Sons tells a remarkable story, weaving together the dramas of personal lives with the fascinating tale of a nation’s endeavor to become a world power.

Where is my mind?: Escape from your comfortably numb life cover
Book Review

Kenta Nagakura, a well-known bestseller producer in Japan, sounds an alarm.

A developed, rich country like Japan or the United States is an optimum environment for living creatures.

That’s why we can’t help thinking ...

“I want to achieve goals,”
“I want to have dreams,”
“I want to be happy,”
“I want to go higher,”

despite that we are already living in abundance and should already be happy.

In this way, many become anxious towards the future, many are already dead without any particular reason.
They then gradually waste their life.

If you feel you are one of them, this is a book for you to take back your life.

Chapter 1We are all dead
Where is my mind?
Without any particular reason, you are dead!
Dead men have no anxiety
We are overused by our brains
Chapter 2We are all slaves
Dream is slavery
To Do list is bullshit!
Worldly wise person is an elite slave
Begin with denying everything!
Don’t be slave to the clock
Slavery is inheritable
Chapter 3We are all money mad
Money is created by the devil
Why saving mon...

Book Review

The definitive novel of today's Silicon Valley, After On flash-captures our cultural and technological moment with up-to-the-instant savvy.

Phluttr has it in her to become the greatest gossip, flirt, or matchmaker in history. Or she could...

Healthy Healing: A Guide to Working Out Grief Using the Power of Exercise and Endorphins cover
Book Review

Instead of helping in the aftermath of loss, many of the books and strategies meant to guide us through grief only add to the sadness. No one understands the need for a new approach more than Michelle Steinke-Baumgard, who lost her husband in a tragic plane accident and became a widow overnight. In the darkest moment of her life, the mother of two young children found solace and hope in the unlikeliest of places: exercise.

Unfu*k Yourself cover
Book Review

Joining the ranks of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, You Are a Badass, and F*ck Feelings is this refreshing, BS-free self-empowerment guide that offers an honest, no-nonsense, tough-love approach to help you move past self-imposed limitations.

Are you tired of feeling f*cked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unf*cked version of yourself. "Wake up to the miracle you are," he directs. "Here's what you've forgotten: You're a f*cking miracle of being." It isn't other people that are standing in your way; it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive. It's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.

In Unf*ck Yourself, Bishop leads you through a series of seven assertions:

  • I am willing
  • I am wired to win
  • I got this
  • I embrace the uncertainty
  • I am not my thoughts; I am what I do
  • I am relentless <...
