9 Cod - Mark Kurlansky
Auteur : Mark Kurlansky
Genre : Nature
An unexpected, energetic look at world history on sea and land from the bestselling author of Salt and The Basque History of the World

Mark Kurlansky’s third work of nonfiction and winner of the 1999 James Beard Award, is the biography of a single species of fish, but it may as well be a world history with this humble fish as its recurring main character. Cod, it turns out, is the reason Europeans set sail across the Atlantic, and it is the only reason they could. What did the Vikings eat in icy Greenland and on the five expeditions to America recorded in the Icelandic sagas? Cod, frozen and dried in the frosty air, then broken into pieces and eaten like hardtack. What was the staple of the medieval diet? Cod again, sold salted by the Basques, an enigmatic people with a mysterious, unlimited supply of cod. As we make our way thro

11 Why Progressive Institutions are Unsustainable - Richard A. Epstein
Auteur : Richard A. Epstein
Genre : Economics
The painful performance of the American economy in the past decade is not a function of bad luck. It is the product of flawed institutional design. Right now we are reaping the harvest of efforts to reinvigorate the progressive programs of the New Deal that stress high progressive taxes, large transfer payments, strong labor laws, and major barriers to free trade.

This combination of public finance and market regulation has proved a potent force for disaster.

High marginal tax rates expose the political system to strong factional strife that stifles initiative, adds uncertainty and reduces overall revenues. To these multiple ailments, Epstein argues that the best recipe is a return to the flat tax of the classical liberal tradition.

The government has committed itself to substituting state mandates for voluntary arrangements in labor and real estate m

13 Smartcuts - Shane Snow
Auteur : Shane Snow
Genre : Management & Leadership
Entrepreneur and journalist Shane Snow (Wired, Fast Company, The New Yorker, and cofounder of Contently) analyzes the lives of people and companies that do incredible things in implausibly short time.

How do some startups go from zero to billions in mere months? How did Alexander the Great, YouTube tycoon Michelle Phan, and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon climb to the top in less time than it takes most of us to get a promotion? What do high-growth businesses, world-class heart surgeons, and underdog marketers do in common to beat the norm?

One way or another, they do it like computer hackers. They employ what psychologists call "lateral thinking: to rethink convention and break "rules" that aren't rules.

These are not shortcuts, which produce often dubious short-term gains, but ethical "smartcuts" that eliminate unnecessary effort and yield sustainable mo

14 We Are the Weather - Jonathan Safran Foer
Auteur : Jonathan Safran Foer
Genre : Social Science
In We Are the Weather, Jonathan Safran Foer explores the central global dilemma of our time in a surprising, deeply personal, and urgent new way.

Some people reject the fact, overwhelmingly supported by scientists, that our planet is warming because of human activity. But do those of us who accept the reality of human-caused climate change truly believe it? If we did, surely we would be roused to act on what we know. Will future generations distinguish between those who didn’t believe in the science of global warming and those who said they accepted the science but failed to change their lives in response?

The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselves—with our all-too-human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. We have, he reveals, turned our planet into a farm for growing animal produc

18 The Sustainable Economy - Robert Devine
Auteur : Robert Devine
Genre : Nature
An original, engaging guide to creating a sustainable economy that will combat global warming while also improving our quality of life


Pick an environmental issue. Maybe air pollution, toxic waste, or deforestation. These all seem like solid choices, but none of these is actually an environmental problem--at least, not at its heart. Deep down, they are economic problems. Nearly all the issues we classify as environmental stem from defects in the DNA of America's current market system. This is emphatically true of our greatest environmental threat: global warming.

With a focus on climate change, journalist and author Robert S. Devine reveals the fundamental flaws in the economy that enable environmental degradation. The Sustainable Economy is a book about economics, but it skips the equations and eases through the jargon,

19 The Third Plate - Dan Barber
Auteur : Dan Barber
Genre : Social Science
“Not since Michael Pollan has such a powerful storyteller emerged to reform American food.” —The Washington Post

Today’s optimistic farm-to-table food culture has a dark secret: the local food movement has failed to change how we eat. It has also offered a false promise for the future of food. In his visionary New York Times–bestselling book, chef Dan Barber, recently showcased on Netflix’s Chef’s Table, offers a radical new way of thinking about food that will heal the land and taste good, too. Looking to the detrimental cooking of our past, and the misguided dining of our present, Barber points to a future “third plate”: a new form of American eating where good farming and good food intersect. Barber’s The Third Plate charts a bright path forward for eaters and chefs alike, daring everyone to imagine a future for ou

Genre : Economics
Jeffrey D. Sachs is one of the world's most perceptive and original analysts of global development.

26 The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels - Alex Epstein
Auteur : Alex Epstein
Genre : Industries & Professions
Could everything we know about fossil fuels be wrong?

For decades, environmentalists have told us that using fossil fuels is a self-destructive addiction that will destroy our planet. Yet at the same time, by every measure of human well-being, from life expectancy to clean water to climate safety, life has been getting better and better.

How can this be?

The explanation, energy expert Alex Epstein argues in The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, is that we usually hear only one side of the story. We’re taught to think only of the negatives of fossil fuels, their risks and side effects, but not their positives—their unique ability to provide cheap, reliable energy for a world of seven billion people. And the moral significance of cheap, reliable energy, Epstein argues, is woefully underrated. Energy is our ability to improve every single aspect

But for Bittman, flipping the ratio of your diet to something more virtuous and better for your body doesn’t involve avoiding any foods—indeed, there is no sacrifice here.

29 Easy & Sustainable High Protein Low Carb New Atkins Diet - Sarah Blair
Auteur : Sarah Blair
Genre : Health & Fitness
Restore your health with almost painless high-protein, low-carbohydrate New Atkins Diet. The theory is really quite simple: when you cut out carbs, your body is forced into burning its fat stores to provide it with energy; as you burn more calories when your body burns fat compared with carbohydrate, you'll lose weight more quickly; by cutting out carbs, blood sugar levels remain more stable throughout the day, and so it prevents overeating. While on New Atkins Diet you eat a moderate amount of protein, vegetables, fish, good oils, and so its a balanced, long-term diet that can work plus it is excellent in balancing blood sugar and eliminating the resultant fatigue, emotional swings, and headaches. New Atkins Diet not only helps with weight loss, it's also heart-healthy and helps protect against chronic disease. All Easy, tasty recipes provided with nutritional infor

30 Mycelium Running - Paul Stamets
Auteur : Paul Stamets
Genre : Nature
Mycelium Running is a manual for the mycological rescue of the planet. That’s right: growing more mushrooms may be the best thing we can do to save the environment, and in this groundbreaking text from mushroom expert Paul Stamets, you’ll find out how.
The basic science goes like this: Microscopic cells called “mycelium”--the fruit of which are mushrooms--recycle carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements as they break down plant and animal debris in the creation of rich new soil. What Stamets has discovered is that we can capitalize on mycelium’s digestive power and target it to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants (mycoremediation), catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds (mycofiltration), control insect populations (mycopesticides), and generally enhance the health of our forests and gardens (mycofo

Auteur : Barry Estabrook
Genre : Life Sciences
A Splendid Table Staff Book Pick of the Year

"Estabrook, a reporter of iron constitution and persistence, has dug deep into the truth about the American pork industry without losing his sense of humor and humanity." —Christopher Kimball, Wall Street Journal

In Pig Tales, New York Times best-selling author of Tomatoland Barry Estabrook turns his attention to the dark side of the American pork industry. Drawing on personal experiences raising pigs as well as sharp investigative instincts, Estabrook covers the range of the human-porcine experience. He shows how these intelligent creatures are all too often subjected to lives of suffering in confinement and squalor, sustained on a drug-laced diet just long enough to reach slaughter weight. But Estabrook also reveals how it is possible to raise pigs responsibly and respectfully, benefiting producers and consumers—as

33 DIY Pantry: Canning and Preserving Basics for Sustainable Living - Gaia Rodale
Auteur : Gaia Rodale
Genre : Crafts & Hobbies
There is something really special about filling the plates on your dinner table with food you grew and raised yourself, or that you bought from the farmer down the road and really know where it came from. Learning to preserve that food can extend that sense of accomplishment and connection all year round.

Food preservation is one of the most basic skills any family looking to live a more sustainable lifestyle can have. It cuts down on food costs, extends the harvest, increases your self-reliance, and reduces waste. It allows you to reap the benefits of all your hard work over a longer time frame. It is more sustainable and makes the best possible use of resources. With so many great reasons to learn basic food preservation, why would anyone would choose not to do it?

34 The Diet Trap Solution - Judith S. Beck, Ph.D. & Deborah Beck Busis
Auteur : Judith S. Beck, Ph.D. & Deborah Beck Busis
Genre : Diet & Nutrition
The New York Times bestselling author of The Beck Diet Solution teams up with her daughter and colleague at the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior to teach readers how to think their way thin, offering practical, proven tools for escaping common diet traps for good.

Most diet programs work at first. But then life happens—stress, bad habits, holidays, travel—and we revert to bad habits, and the weight comes back. In this invaluable book, Dr. Judith Beck offers the solution to break free from these common diet traps and keep the weight off for life.

Dr. Beck explains that when it comes to losing weight, it’s not just about what we eat. It’s also about how we think. To consistently eat differently, we must learn to think differently. Diets fail us because they don’t offer effective strategies for overcoming the common traps—emotional eating, social press

35 Ecohouse: A Holistic Approach to Sustainable Living - Rogerio Cietto
Auteur : Rogerio Cietto
Genre : Ecology
The word eco means nature (in Greek oikos means house), so an Ecohouse would be a place that respects the environment (literally, a house inside a house). It would be easy for all of us to be ecologically friendly, in complete simbiosis with nature: we just need to live the way we did 10.000 years ago, hunting, planting, and living in shelters with no water or energy...

It would not be wise, since many of us would die from starvation, diseases or disasters. But the way our ancestors lived may help us understand why we need to rethink our relation with nature. Our ancestors fought for their individual survival on a daily basis, and those with technology and resources (virtually unlimited at that time) had a step ahead.

Today we fight for the same survival, but based on the benefits that we have today, and some of us are way ahead because of access to technology and r

36 Farmacology - Daphne Miller, M.D.
Auteur : Daphne Miller, M.D.
Genre : Diet & Nutrition
In Farmacology, practicing family physician and renowned nutrition explorer Daphne Miller brings us beyond the simple concept of "food as medicine" and introduces us to the critical idea that it's the farm where that food is grown that offers us the real medicine.

By venturing out of her clinic and spending time on seven family farms, Miller uncovers all the aspects of farming—from seed choice to soil management—that have a direct and powerful impact on our health. Bridging the traditional divide between agriculture and medicine, Miller shares lessons learned from inspiring farmers and biomedical researchers and artfully weaves their insights and discoveries, along with stories from her patients, into the narrative. The result is a compelling new vision for sustainable healing and a treasure trove of farm-to-body lessons that have immense value in our daily lives.

37 Secrets From the Eating Lab - Traci Mann
Auteur : Traci Mann
Genre : Diet & Nutrition
A provocative expose of the dieting industry from one of the nation’s leading researchers in self-control and the psychology of weight loss that offers proven strategies for sustainable weight loss.

From her office in the University of Minnesota’s Health and Eating Lab, professor Traci Mann researches self-control and dieting. And what she has discovered is groundbreaking. Not only do diets not work; they often result in weight gain. Americans are losing the battle of the bulge because our bodies and brains are not hardwired to resist food—the very idea of it works against our biological imperative to survive.

In Secrets From the Eating Lab, Mann challenges assumptions—including those that make up the very foundation of the weight loss industry—about how diets work and why they fail. The result of more than two decades of research, it offers cutting-edge s

But after surgery, instead of the traditional chemotherapy, Wark decided to radically change his diet and lifestyle in order to promote health and healing in his body.

Genre : United States
Have you ever walked through your neighborhood, taken a look at a weird house, and thought “Who lives there?” or, “What in the world does it look like inside?” We’ve all been curious, which is why the founders of the Weird Homes Tourâ„¢ began their strange and wonderful journey.

42 The Zero Marginal Cost Society - Jeremy Rifkin
Auteur : Jeremy Rifkin
Genre : Economics
In The Zero Marginal Cost Society, New York Times bestselling author Jeremy Rifkin describes how the emerging Internet of Things is speeding us to an era of nearly free goods and services, precipitating the meteoric rise of a global Collaborative Commons and the eclipse of capitalism.

Rifkin uncovers a paradox at the heart of capitalism that has propelled it to greatness but is now taking it to its death—the inherent entrepreneurial dynamism of competitive markets that drives productivity up and marginal costs down, enabling businesses to reduce the price of their goods and services in order to win over consumers and market share. (Marginal cost is the cost of producing additional units of a good or service, if fixed costs are not counted.) While economists have always welcomed a reduction in marginal cost, they never anticipated the possibility of a tec

Auteur : Aaron Carroll
Genre : Diet & Nutrition
Physician and popular New York Times contributor Aaron Carroll mines the latest evidence to show that many “bad” ingredients actually aren’t unhealthy, and in some cases are essential to our well-being.

Advice about food can be confusing. There’s usually only one thing experts can agree on: some ingredients—often the most enjoyable ones—are bad for you, full stop.

Examining troves of studies on dietary health, Carroll separates hard truths from hype, showing that you can

46 Handbook on Sustainable Investments: Background Information and Practical Examples for Institutional Asset Owners - Swiss Sustainable Finance
Auteur : Swiss Sustainable Finance
Genre : Business & Personal Finance
A fast growing share of investors have recently widened their scope of analysis to criteria regarded as extra-financial. They are driven by different motivations. Adoption of sustainable investment strategies can be driven, on the one hand by the sole motivation to hedge portfolios against knowable risks by expanding the conceptual framework to incorporate the latest best practice in risk management. Other investors focus rather on a long-term view and make an active bet on societal change. Recent empirical research has shown that considering sustainability factors within investment practices does not come at a cost (i.e. through a reduced opportunity set) but allows for competitive returns. Furthermore, the growing market and resulting competition in the wake of sustainable investing going mainstream has the welcome effect to compress fees for such products. Hence, staying informed abou

47 Attracting Wildlife to Your Backyard - Josh VanBrakle
Auteur : Josh VanBrakle
Genre : Gardening
Many people think of wildlife as something distant, creatures living in natural forests and remote public preserves. But most wildlife in the United States isn?t found in the distant wild.

In Attracting Wildlife to Your Backyard, author and landowner Josh VanBrakle provides readers with 101 easy-to-follow activities and practical approaches to help do just that. Some projects include:
