The Trouble with Nature Summary:

Freedom Tree encompasses a unique race of bees that exist in an autonomous society. A race of bees, and wasps living a life, we as humanians never see are thriving together to survive nature’s troubles. In Belcado, four young honey bees rise and make a life for themselves, thanks to a wise elder bee named Tenni Roh, who under his wing nurtures them into a miracle the underworld has never seen. Zop, Stip, Jot, and Razz become a phenomenon in the Kova forest, changing the world forever around them. Imaginary, perhaps, but the story is challenging in that it is relative to what we humans encounter in our own lives. As the Bee-Telz accumulate their fame, they experience many adventures and hardships on their journey from their home to the forest region’s far reaches. Their creative music charms the insect, bird, and animal world around them, creating a frenzy of interest. The story combines friendship, love, and compassion, the whole theme of Zop’s desire to unite a troubled world through twig tapping music. The adventure from the Kova’s forest to Camilo finds the Bee-Telz building their reputation into a long-lasting bond between bee races. They find happiness and enthusiasm for their music, along with unbeknown resentment and revenge from a clandestine gang of illegal honey traffickers. But the conclusion finds eventual peace, surprising discoveries, and elements of love between Zop and Mitzy Loe. Stip, Jot, and Razz, who make fun of their talented and creative compatriot, end up finding their own love stories. The end is a happy one, and life goes on peacefully for everyone in Kova and Camilo...

The Trouble with Being Born Summary:

In this volume, which reaffirms the uncompromising brilliance of his mind, Cioran strips the human condition down to its most basic components, birth and death, suggesting that disaster lies not in the prospect of death but in the fact of birth, "that laughable accident." In the lucid, aphoristic style that characterizes his work, Cioran writes of time and death, God and religion, suicide and suffering, and the temptation to silence. Through sharp observation and patient contemplation, Cioran cuts to the heart of the human experience. “A love of Cioran creates an urge to press his writing into someone’s hand, and is followed by an equal urge to pull it away as poison.”—The New Yorker “In the company of Nietzsche and Kierkegaard."—Publishers Weekly "No modern writer twists the knife with Cioran's dexterity. . . . His writing . . . is informed with the bitterness of genuine compassion."—Boston Phoenix

The Laws of Human Nature Summary:

From the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power comes the definitive new book on decoding the behavior of the people around you Robert Greene is a master guide for millions of readers, distilling ancient wisdom and philosophy into essential texts for seekers of power, understanding and mastery. Now he turns to the most important subject of all - understanding people's drives and motivations, even when they are unconscious of them themselves. We are social animals. Our very lives depend on our relationships with people. Knowing why people do what they do is the most important tool we can possess, without which our other talents can only take us so far. Drawing from the ideas and examples of Pericles, Queen Elizabeth I, Martin Luther King Jr, and many others, Greene teaches us how to detach ourselves from our own emotions and master self-control, how to develop the empathy that leads to insight, how to look behind people's masks, and how to resist conformity to develop your singular sense of purpose. Whether at work, in relationships, or in shaping the world around you, The Laws of Human Nature offers brilliant tactics for success, self-improvement, and self-defense.

Reading the Book of Nature Summary:

"When Darwin returned to Britain from the Beagle voyage in 1836, the most talked-about scientific books were the Bridgewater Treatises. This series of eight books was funded by a bequest of the last Earl of Bridgewater, and they were authored by leading men of science, appointed by the President of the Royal Society, and intended to explore "the power, wisdom, and goodness of God, as manifested in the creation." Securing public attention beyond all expectations, the series gave Darwin's generation a range of approaches to one of the great questions of the age: how to incorporate the newly emerging disciplinary sciences into Britain's overwhelmingly Christian culture. Drawing on a wealth of archival and published sources, including many unexplored by historians, Jonathan R. Topham examines how and to what extent the series contributed to a sense of congruence between Christianity and the sciences in the generation before the infamous Victorian "conflict between science and religion." He does so by drawing on the distinctive insights of book history, using close attention to the production, circulation, and use of the books to open up new perspectives not only on aspects of early Victorian science but also on the whole subject of science and religion. Its innovative focus on practices of authorship, publishing, and reading helps us to understand the everyday considerations and activities through which the religious culture of early Victorian science was fashioned. And in doing so, Reading the Book of Nature powerfully reimagines the world in which a young Charles Darwin learned how to think about the implications of his theory"--
