Play: How It Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul

Stuart Brown MD

Play: How It Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul by Stuart Brown MDFrom a leading expert, a groundbreaking ebook on the science of play, and its essential role in fueling our intelligence and happiness throughout our lives.

We've all seen the happiness in the face of a child while playing in the school yard. Or the blissful abandon of a golden retriever racing with glee across a lawn. This is the joy of play. By definition, play is purposeless and all-consuming. And, most important, it's fun.

As we become adults, taking time to play feels like a guilty pleasure - a distraction from 'real' work and life. But as Dr. Stuart Brown illustrates, play is anything...

The World is Fat: The Fads, Trends, Policies, and Products That Are Fattening the Human Race

Barry Popkin

The World is Fat: The Fads, Trends, Policies, and Products That Are Fattening the Human Race by Barry PopkinFast Food Nation meets The World Is Flat in this eye-opening look at the obesity epidemic.

Today, the planet's 1.3 billion overweight people by far outnumber the 700 million who are undernourished. This figure would have seemed ludicrous just fifty years ago, when hunger was the world's most pressing nutritional problem.

In The World Is Fat, Barry Popkin argues that the fattening of the human race is not simply about that next cheeseburger; rather, it is a result of an unprecedented collision of human biology with trends in technology, globalization, government policy, and the food industry...
