For my birthday this year I decided to do something a little different – you get the presents- I am giving away a book a day – drawn randomly, sometime during the day/night…for the next few days…a lucky dip of books.
I hope you find something in this eclectic selection that sparks your interest. Open to Australian residents., thanks to DMCPR Media – its simple – just respond, “yes please” in the comments.
What makes a person good? Is it their impeccable table manners? Whether they participate in protests? The way they treat the waiter?
Talk to Your Kids About Things That Matter is the go-to guide for navigating ethics in the 21st century. In a post-Trump, post-truth world, the lines between right and wrong are increasingly blurred and ethics matter more than ever.
More of us are questioning the world that we live in and what is our role inside it.
Inside this book you’ll find over 100 conversation starters for creating meaningful, thought-provoking discussions. From Plato to veganism, cancel culture to consent, and politics to basic kindness, these topics are set to engage, inspire, and even divide. It’s the perfect accompaniment for road trips, Sunday afternoon drinks, family dinners or even a first date.
Designed to have no real answer, but rather, stir even more questions, this provocative and deeply engaging book will kick your philosophical gears into action. How to be a Good Human encourages readers to dig deeper, put yourself in others’ shoes, and be the best human you can be.
