Daniel KAHNEMAN, Oliver SIBONY and Cass R. SUNSTEIN Noise

From the multi-million-copy bestselling author of Thinking Fast and Slow Daniel Kahneman, the co-author of the million-copy bestseller Nudge Cass Sunstein, and the eminent professor and writer on strategic thinking Oliver Sibony, a new book about how to make better decisions. When a radiologist looks at the image of an ulcer, they make a judgement of which they are

usually fairly certain. When they look at that image on a different occasion, they make a different conclusion around 20% of the time. Whenever we make a decision, there is noise. And we can be as deaf to this noise as we can be blind to bias. This book teaches us how to understand that context always has an impact on our decision-making, and how to reduce its impact and improve the quality of our decisions. This

can be readily used by private or public institutions, by schools, hospitals, businesses, judges and in our everyday lives. • T  hinking Fast and Slow was a phenomenal international bestseller, with 5 million copies sold globally. Nudge has also sold over 1 million copies worldwide.

If you’re younger than sixty, you have a good chance of witnessing the radical destabilization of life on earth – massive crop failures, apocalyptic fires, imploding economies, epic flooding, hundreds of millions of refugees fleeing regions made uninhabitable by extreme heat or permanent drought. If you’re under thirty, you’re all but guaranteed to witness it…

You can keep on hoping that catastrophe is preventable and feel ever more frustrated or enraged by the world’s inaction. Or you can accept that disaster is coming and begin to rethink what it means to have hope.’ • This is Jonathan Franzen’s controversial New Yorker essay, published as a single volume.

Ibi ZOBOI & Yusef SALAAM Punching the Air

Recommended by Jacqui, European Sales Manager

This never should have been his story. But can he change it?

One fateful night, an altercation in a gentrifying neighbourhood escalates into tragedy. ‘Boys just being boys’ turns out to be true only when those boys are white. Suddenly, at just sixteen years old, Amal Shahid’s bright future is upended: he is convicted of a crime he didn’t commit and sent to prison. Despair and rage almost sink him until he turns to the refuge of his words, his art.

With spellbinding lyricism, award-winning author Ibi Zoboi and prison reform activist Yusef Salaam tell a moving and deeply profound story in verse about how one boy is able to maintain his humanity and fight for the truth, in a system designed to strip him of both.

Noa loves to watch the elephants play in the water near his small village in East Africa. One day tragedy strikes and the baby is left all alone, his mother killed by poachers. When Noa and his village adopt the lonely orphan, a beautiful friendship is born. Until one stormy night when Noa may need his friend to save him too…

• A lyrical celebration of friendship, freedom and the power of the imagination perfect for bedtime!

I Want You to Know We’re Still Here

The brilliant untold story of three daughters of diplomacy: Anna Roosevelt, Sarah Churchill and Kathleen Harriman, glamorous, fascinating young women who accompanied their famous fathers to the Yalta Conference with Stalin in the waning days of World War II. Telling the little-known story of the huge role these women played in a political maelstrom and the shaping of a post-war world, this is a remarkable account of behind-the-scenes female achievement.

‘In the darker corners of my mind live ghosts and demons who visit me from the shtetls in Ukraine where my family came from. Some of the details that make these visions so vivid are imagined because I grew up in a family where memories were too terrible to speak of. This is the true story of those who have been dealing with the Holocaust and its aftermath. We are four generations, survivors and survivors of survivors, storytellers and memory keepers. And we’re still here.’

• 2020 is the 75th anniversary of the Yalta Conference.

• A moving and powerful intergenerational memoir about story and memory from one of the most powerful women in Washington.

Jews Don’t Count

The Ethical Reader

Jews don’t count. Even among those on ‘the right side of history’, it is still somehow acceptable to make jokes about Jews, blame them, appropriate their culture. David Baddiel follows the antisemetism he finds in his Twitter feed to the stage, through the media and into politics, with rigour and humour. And as he does so, he challenges us to examine our complex and unconscious racism.

The story of slavery in America is not over. It lives on in how we speak to one another, in how we treat one another, in how our societies are organised. In The Ethical Reader, Patricia Williams finds that when you begin to unpick current debates around immigration, freedom of speech, the culture wars and wall-building, beneath them lies the unexamined history of enslavement in the West.

• Baddiel examines the ‘–ism’ that woke culture and identity politics leave behind: antisemitism.

• Patricia Williams is an American legal scholar. She was the first black woman to give the prestigious annual Reith Lectures.
