Shelf Check

Don’t we all love fresh new books? This morning I did a shelf check and wanted to see what’s there:

It is the diverse arrangement that really fascinates me, for example we have couple of new brain books –

Our senses : an immersive experience by Rob DeSalle – the author illuminates not only how we see, hear, smell, touch, taste, maintain balance, feel pain, and rely on other less familiar senses, but also how these senses shape our perception of the world aesthetically, artistically, and musically.

Unthinkable : an extraordinary journey through the world’s strangest brains by Helen Thomson – Our brains are far stranger than we think. We take it for granted that we can remember, feel emotion, navigate, empathise and understand the world around us, but how would our lives change if these abilities were dramatically enhanced – or disappeared overnight? With a beautiful book cover this book tells some extraordinary stories on our brain.

Other health book –

The personalized diet : why one-size-fits-all diets don’t work by Eran Segal – one fits all never works. Forget everything you know about food… At the world-renowned Weizmann Research Institute, Dr Eran Segal and Dr Eran Elinav have been looking at what and how we eat differently. In one of the largest ever studies of nutrition and health they have proved conclusively that every food affects every body differently. In other words, what is healthy for one person could be unhealthy for another. The Personalized Diet offers the ground breaking knowledge, tools and life hacks to re-examine how you think about food, health and well-being, and discover the right foods for you. There are no foods that are just good or bad, there is no one-size-fits-all diet; instead, there is The Personalized Diet. Welcome to your blueprint for a healthier, happier, longer life.

Other titles that we need to take attention are

On borrowed time : a stunning new collection of essays from Australia’s leading public intellectual by Robert Manne – an old writer on new issues.

The future of humanity : terraforming Mars, interstellar travel, immortality, and our destiny beyond Earth by Michio Kaku – when the earth isn’t big enough what we’ll do? Hope this book will convince you.

Exit west : a novel by Mohsim Hamid – a Western Sydney writer through this novel he tells stories of migration and refugees.

The girl in the moon by Terry Goodkind – a psychic ability, terrorism related and paranormal fiction.

Many more new books are available for loan.
