#BookBday (9/25/18 Edition)

New week, new books! Happy #BookBday to:

THE THREE ESCAPES OF HANNAH ARENDT: A Tyranny of Truth by Ken Krimstein
Two starred reviews! “As Krimstein deftly weaves Arendt’s life and thought, he captures the excitement of the philosophical enterprise in both word (“THINKING HAS BECOME EROTIC. ELECTRIC, ECSTATIC”) and image: fine, wiry black lines with the occasional brush of green effectively echo Arendt’s energized thinking and the tensions of a life lived in constant escape, one step ahead of the Nazis. Both smart and entertaining; highly recommended and not just for graphic novels readers.” — Library Journal, starred review

THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS: How Droughts and Die-offs, Heat Waves and Hurricanes Are Converging on America by Jeff Nesbit
“Journalist and former National Science Foundation executive Nesbit acknowledges that he tells ‘big, scary stories.’ His brand of stories scares more than standard tales of global warming and climate change because they are specific and immediate and foreshadow our own fate. Mostly free of technical jargon and confusing scientific explanations, Nesbit’s book should be widely read.” — Booklist, starred review

THE CHRISTMAS WISHING TREE by Emily March
A delightful Christmas novel in the New York Times bestselling Eternity Springs series from Emily March. “Lovely… Devin and Jenna’s rich and nuanced love story will satisfy series fans and new readers.” — Publishers Weekly

VENGEFUL by V.E. Schwab
Also available in audio
V. E. Schwab ends the Villains duology with a super-powered battle of genius, cruelty, and the lengths one will go for vengeance. “Schwab’s strong writing, addictive action scenes, and fully developed complexities of plot and character combine to deliver a satisfying story.” — Library Journal

THE DICHOTOMY OF LEADERSHIP: Balancing the Challenges of Extreme Ownership to Lead and Win by Jocko Willink & Leif Babin
Also available in audio
The #1 New York Times bestselling authors of EXTREME OWNERSHIP use lessons from their Navy SEAL Team combat and training experiences to explain balancing seemingly opposite principles—leading and following, focusing and detaching, being both aggressive and prudent—to become effective leaders in business and in life.
