I’m no connoisseur of the genre (in fact I’m quite skeptical...) but Change Your Schedule, Change Your Life definitely delivers as billed. Part presentation of cutting edge research into circadian rhythms, part beginner’s elucidation of the Ayurvedic tradition corroborated by said research, the book is eminently practical, wholly workable, and might actually change your life — albeit in the most minute, sustainable, of ways.

What is a garden? Is gardening a visual art? And can a place, in all its dynamism, be captured forever in a still image? Just as gardens are a "tame" form of nature, so is photography, it must be admitted, a cultivated form of reality. It's this prodding of beautiful artifice that makes The Photographer in the Garden one of the most arresting explorations in the visual arts to be published this year, as thought-provoking as it is lush and suited to a pleasant armchair amble.

Against the Grain is one of the most exhilarating, genre-defying, wild cards of a book on our shelves at the moment. Prehistory buffs, climate scientists, economists, Paleo-dieters, social justice warriors, libertarians, tax code reformers, anthropologists ---  as well as curious minds of an ilk not covered by such categories ...  all will have reason to find James Scott's reassessment of the earliest proto-states in the Mesopotamian alluvial delta fascinating beyond all expectation. It's the kind of book you'll want to reference in every conversation for months post-reading.
