A WORLD WITHOUT WORK: Technology, Automation, and How We Should Respond by Daniel Susskind

YOU CAN ONLY YELL AT ME FOR ONE THING AT A TIME: Rules for Couples by Patricia Marx and Roz Chast

“Celebrated New Yorker contributor Marx joins with celebrated New Yorker cartoonist Chast to offer tips about healthy relationships that go beyond old saws like ‘Don’t go to bed angry.’ My favorites so far: ‘It is easier to stay inside and wait for the snow to melt than to fight about who should shovel.'”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert
