What does this ZIP Reads Summary Include? Synopsis of the original bookKey takeaways from each chapterThe 11 elements of chaos brought by climate changeThe socio-political ramifications of inactionWhat we can do to fix itEditorial ReviewBackground on David Wallace-WellsAbout the Original Book:David Wallace-Wells has a message for the citizens of the earth - and it isn’t pretty. A zenith has been reached, and it is all downhill from here as climate change cascades over everything we have built in the industrial age. He explores each aspect of what climate change means for us today, in 30 years, and by the end of the century, depending largely on what we choose to do today. The likely results of just two, three, and four degrees of warming seems increasingly alarming, as well they should be, but we have the tools to slow the cataclysm of the Anthropocene. Will the world awaken from its narcissistic state of complacency in time?DISCLAIMER: This book is intended as a companion to, not a replacement for, The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming.

From George Minot, author of The Blue Bowl (´´Inexpressibly moving. It´s thrilling to find a writer this good.´´ - Amy Hempel), a new novel, moving, sensual, athletic (and aesthetic), set in the downtown New York yoga world at the turn of the millennium, a love story about a once-trendy artist who´s lost his bearings and finds his life reinvigorated by his new yoga practice - and a certain barefooted yoga teacher. To Billy, who used to show in the hot new galleries in the East Village of the 80s and early 90s, his downhill progression is what he calls ´´the vague decline.´´ But life feels exquisitely transformed by his new daily yoga practice (´´a little hothouse sanctuary in the big city´´) clearing the way; creating insight, flexibility, clarity; breathing; sweating; variations of vulnerability, arched open emotion. Billy is also enraptured by his new yoga crush. Soon he and Amanda, a yoga teacher (her ´´poses are pure,´´ ´´flexible and solid,´´ ´´gliding easily in her element´´), are in love and are caught up in the newness and wonder of their happiness. They are inseparable - their practice is transformative; they can´t tell where one ends and the other begins, and they are transported into a dream world of their own…Until a devastating diagnosis blindsides Amanda, and she begins to recede from Billy´s life. As he feels the thousand threads between them splitting apart and is helpless to stop it, he is forced to turn inward to his art and to his yoga practice to reconcile, with grace and love, his loss, his heart, and mend the abiding wound that he comes to realize was there long before Amanda seemingly completed his soul. Moving, inspiring, transporting, a romantic novel of yoga, inner mystery, and surrender. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Delgado.

Are you the kind of person who enjoys the thrill of adrenaline pumping through your body? Are you constantly on the lookout for some new excitement or adventure? Let´s face it; your working life can be really boring at times, especially if you have one of those desk jobs that require sitting for long periods of time. Sometimes you can almost feel those muscles atrophying. To compensate, you just have to get out and do something active at the weekends. Learning a new sport or hobby is a great way to let off steam and get some exercise at the same time. If that new sport contains just a tiny element of danger, it seems even more attractive. Or maybe you just love nature and want to get out into the wilds to enjoy the peace and quiet. Finding a sport that will let you both get some much-needed exercise and enjoy nature all at the same time is not difficult. Just think: paragliding! Paragliding is not a difficult sport to learn. It does not take hours of practice like learning to play tennis well does. You can learn to paraglide in a weekend or two. This book will explain all about it. But wait! What exactly is paragliding? Paragliding is flying! But it is flying with a special wing to help you sail through the sky. It uses a specially made wing that is attached to the paraglider via a harness. The paraglider runs downhill to inflate the wing which then gently lifts you off the ground. Naturally you have to learn how to do this properly - and how to land safely. But such lessons are easily available and of a reasonable price. Just imagine floating through the silent atmosphere just like an eagle. You will be at one with nature in a way that few other sports allow. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sangita Chauhan. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/083552/bk_acx0_083552_sample.mp3.
