Uncontrolled Spread by Scott Gottlieb, MD

Why COVID-19 Crushed Us and How We Can Defeat the Next Pandemic // As the pandemic unfolded, Gottlieb was in regular contact with all the key players in Congress, the Trump administration, and the drug and diagnostic industries. Providing an inside account of how level after level of American government crumbled as the COVID-19 crisis advanced, he argues we must fix our systems and prepare for a deadlier coronavirus variant, a flu pandemic, or whatever else nature--or those wishing us harm--may threaten us with.

On Animals by Susan Orlean

Orlean examines animal-human relationships through the compelling tales she has written over the course of her celebrated career. These stories consider a range of creatures, the household pets we dote on, the animals we raise to end up as meat on our plates, the creatures who could eat us for dinner, the various tamed and untamed animals we share our planet with who are central to human life.

I Alone Can Fix It by Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker

Donald J. Trump's Catastrophic Final Year // The true story of what took place in Donald Trump's White House during a disastrous 2020 has never before been told in full. What was really going on around the president, as the government failed to contain the coronavirus and over half a million Americans perished? Who was influencing Trump after he refused to concede an election he had clearly lost and spread lies about election fraud?

Fuzz by Mary Roach

When Nature Breaks the Law // Join Mary Roach on an irresistible investigation into the unpredictable world where wildlife and humans meet. What's to be done about a jaywalking moose? A grizzly bear caught breaking and entering? A murderous tree? As New York Times best-selling author Mary Roach discovers, the answers are best found not in jurisprudence but in science: the curious science of human-wildlife conflict, a discipline at the crossroads of human behavior and wildlife biology.

Messy Minimalism by Rachelle Crawford and Denaye Barahona

Realistic Strategies for the Rest of Us // Minimalism doesn't always mean a perfectly curated home that is always tidy. Messy minimalism is less about perfection and more about purpose.

Fixed by Amy E. Herman

The Fine Art of Problem Solving // Herman outlines her step-by-step approach, providing a fresh set of tools to help us kick start our critical thinking skills and enable us to find solutions to some of our most intractable problems. Herman explains the artist's use of the creative process and teaches us how to analyze paintings, sculpture, mixed media, photography, and contemporary art. By learning how to look at these works more astutely, we hone our powers of perception and discover deep-seated truths about ourselves that often prevent clear-thinking and optimal decision making. Once we recognize our biases, we can overcome them and see solutions we were previously blind to. Herman's approach doesn't take an art degree -- only the willingness to open our eyes and our minds.
