LaGuardia Library Book of the Week: People Get Ready

People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy, by Robert W. McChesney and John Nichols

People Get Ready

“An energetic if grim discussion of inequality and the coming era of underemployment, viewed through the lens of the forgotten American progressive narrative. McChesney …and … Nichols bring clear urgency to this sprawling polemic, which encompasses politics, the cybereconomy, the decline of critical journalism, and historical movements beginning with America's founding. They describe the post-2008 recession era as a "maelstrom" of inequity, pointing toward worse times in the labor market: "the debate about where technological change is headed is already settled in the circles of those who intend to profit from that change." This pessimism is linked to what the authors convincingly portray as the decay of representative governance. Both parties, they argue, have pursued tax and trade policies that have stealthily undermined blue-collar jobs and middle-class stability. "This is the means," they write, "by which unelected bankers and billionaires most effectively and steadily define the popular discourse." Such dire chapters contrast with a vividly rendered history of the development of a now-tattered "democratic infrastructure," …. McChesney and Nichols conclude with a lengthy proposition for how the ranks of the underemployed could similarly regroup to protect workers' interests. "Economic planning needs to be democratized and popularized and made accountable," they write. An authoritative account of the challenges facing progressives wishing to fuse better governance with economic justice.”

LaGuardia Library Book of the Week: The Nature Fix

The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative, by Florence Williams

The Nature Fix

“For centuries, poets and philosophers extolled the benefits of a walk in the woods: Beethoven drew inspiration from rocks and trees; Wordsworth composed while tromping over the heath; and Nikola Tesla conceived the electric motor while visiting a park. Intrigued by our storied renewal in the natural world, Florence Williams set out to uncover the science behind nature's positive effects on the brain.
In this informative and entertaining account, Williams investigates cutting-edge research as she travels to fragrant cypress forests in Korea to meet the rangers who administer "forest healing programs," to the green hills of Scotland and its "ecotherapeutic" approach to caring for the mentally ill, to a river trip in Idaho with Iraqi vets suffering from PTSD, to the West Virginia mountains where she discovers how being outside helps children with ADHD. The Nature Fix demonstrates that our connection to nature is much more important to our cognition than we think and that even small amounts of exposure to the living world can improve our creativity and enhance our mood. In prose that is incisive, witty, and urgent, Williams shows how time in nature is not a luxury but is in fact essential to our humanity. As our modern lives shift dramatically indoors, these ideas--and the answers they yield--are more urgent than ever.”
