The Doomsday Machine: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner by Ellsberg, Daniel

Former defense analyst Daniel Ellsberg reveals his first-hand account of America’s nuclear program in the 1960s. In a work that reads more like a thriller than a historical memoir, Ellsberg takes the reader on a journey out from the remote military bases in the Pacific where the authority to unleash the nuclear arsenal was widely delegated to detailing the nuclear war plans of President Eisenhower which, if enacted, would spell the extinction of human life. Ellsberg demonstrates, with surprising candor, how this policy of arms buildup, one proposed to resume by the Trump administration, threatens the very survival of the world and how even though it has been nearly 60 years since the time of Kennedy and Eisenhower, nothing has really changed. A real-life Dr. Strangelove!

Shortlisted for the 2018 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction.

Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics: A 10% Happier How-To Book by Dan Harris, Carlye Adler and Jeffrey Warren

ABC News anchor Dan Harris used to be one of meditation’s biggest skeptics. That meditation was practiced by those who had the patience of a saint and would primarily subsist on granola and rhythmic breathing. But after he suffered a panic attack on live TV and took a reflecting journey, he’s become one of meditation’s biggest proponents. He’s joined in this book by Jeffery Warren, a master meditator and Harris’s mentor, as the two of them take a cross country journey to help acquaint everyday people with meditation and break down both the stigmas and push the benefits.

Dan Harris’s first book, 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works – A True Story, a dual memoir and meditation guide, can be found HERE.
