<b>Something is going wrong on many college campuses in the last few years. Rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are rising. Speakers are shouted down. Students and professors say they are walking on eggshells and afraid to speak honestly. How did this happen?</b><br /> 聽<br /> First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt show how the new problems on campus have their origins in three terrible ideas that have become increasingly woven into American childhood and education: what doesn鈥檛 kill you makes you weaker; always trust your feelings; and life is a battle between good people and evil people. These three Great Untruths are incompatible with basic psychological principles, as well as ancient wisdom from many cultures. They interfere with healthy development. Anyone who embraces these untruths鈥攁nd the resulting culture of safetyism鈥攊s less likely to become an autonomous adult able to navigate the bumpy road of life. <br /> 聽<br /> Lukianoff and Haidt investigate the many social trends that have intersected to produce these untruths. They situate the conflicts on campus in the context of America鈥檚 rapidly rising political polarization, including a rise in hate crimes and off-campus provocation. They explore changes in childhood including the rise of fearful parenting, the decline of unsupervised play, and the new world of social media that has engulfed teenagers in the last decade. <br /> 聽<br /> This is a book for anyone who is confused by what is happening on college campuses today, or has children, or is concerned about the growing inability of Americans to live, work, and cooperate across party lines.

<b>In this instant <i>New York Times </i>bestseller, Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls 鈥済rit.鈥?鈥淚nspiration for non-geniuses everywhere鈥?(<i>People</i>).</b><br /><br />The daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of 鈥済enius,鈥?Angela Duckworth is now a celebrated researcher and professor. It was her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience that led to her hypothesis about what really drives success: not genius, but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.<br /> <br /> In <i>Grit</i>, she takes us into the field to visit cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, teachers working in some of the toughest schools, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she鈥檚 learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers鈥攆rom JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to <i>New Yorker</i> cartoon editor Bob Mankoff to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll.<br /> <br /> 鈥淒uckworth鈥檚 ideas about the cultivation of tenacity have clearly changed some lives for the better鈥?(<i>The New York Times Book Review</i>). Among <i>Grit</i>鈥檚 most valuable insights: any effort you make ultimately counts <i>twice </i>toward your goal; grit can be <i>learned</i>, regardless of IQ or circumstances; when it comes to child-rearing, neither a warm embrace nor high standards will work by themselves; how to trigger lifelong interest; the magic of the Hard Thing Rule; and so much more. Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, <i>Grit</i> is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how<i> that</i>鈥攏ot talent or luck鈥攎akes all the difference. This is 鈥渁 fascinating tour of the psychological research on success鈥?(<i>The Wall Street Journal)</i>.

<b>A courageous and damning look at the destruction wrought by the arrogance, incompetence, and duplicity prevalent in the U.S. military-from the inside perspective of a West Point professor of law.</b><br /><b><br /></b>Veneration for the military is a deeply embedded but fatal flaw in America's collective identity. In twenty years at West Point, whistleblower Tim Bakken has come to understand how unquestioned faith isolates the U.S. armed forces from civil society and leads to catastrophe. Pervaded by chronic deceit, the military's insular culture elevates blind loyalty above all other values. The consequences are undeniably grim: failure in every war since World War II, millions of lives lost around the globe, and trillions of dollars wasted.<br /><br />Bakken makes the case that the culture he has observed at West Point influences whether America starts wars and how it prosecutes them. Despite fabricated admissions data, rampant cheating, epidemics of sexual assault, archaic curriculums, and shoddy teaching, the military academies produce officers who maintain their privileges at any cost to the nation. Any dissenter is crushed. Bakken revisits all the major wars the United States has fought, from Korea to the current debacles in the Middle East, to show how the military culture produces one failure after another.<br /><br /><i>The Cost of Loyalty </i>is a powerful, multifaceted revelation about the United States and its singular source of pride. One of the few federal employees ever to win a whistleblowing case against the U.S. military, Bakken, in this brave, timely, and urgently necessary book, and at great personal risk, helps us understand why America loses wars.
