#3 Codex Seraphinianus

It’s considered by some to be one of the strangest books ever written. a unique art book in the art book genre. A peculiar, unsettling surreal parody. both repulsive and stunning. It’s incredibly challenging to explain. Italian artist Luigi Serafini’s Codex Seraphinianus is a glimpse into a particular fantasy world, complete with its own distinctive (unintelligible) alphabet and a number of pictures that draw from the present day yet veer into the incredibly bizarre.

Franco Maria Ricci released it in two volumes for the first time in 1981. The images in this AbeBooks article are from the 370-page American edition of the Twilight Zone from 1983, which was released by Abbeville.

#5 All About Love

All About Love shows how love is intertwined in both our personal and professional lives, offering startling new perspectives on the subject. Hooks shows in eleven condensed chapters how our everyday ideas of what it means to give and receive love frequently fall short of our expectations and how these ideals are formed in infancy. She stresses the role of love in putting a stop to conflicts between people, in communities, and among societies, and presents a rethink of self-love (without narcissism) that will bring about peace and empathy to our personal and professional life.

Hooks challenges the widespread belief that romantic love is the most significant kind of love by going from the cultural to the personal and pointing out the connections between love and loss. Visionary and creative, hooks demonstrates how to love, which is the foundation of love and mercy and has the ability to overcome shame, may heal the wounds we all carry both personally and collectively.

#7 Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil

A wonderful and alluring reading experience. This best-selling account of a seductive Southern metropolis (though a flop as a movie). ~ The early hours of May 2, 1981, in the foggy early morning, shots rang out in Savannah’s greatest home. Was it self-defense or murder? The shooting and its aftermath echoed through this city of moss-hung trees and shadowed squares for almost ten years. The story by John Berendt reads like a truly captivating novel despite being nonfiction. The first-person narrative of life in this remote outpost of the Old South is woven by Berendt with the unforeseen turns of a famous murder investigation.

The Married Woman’s Card Club’s well-to-do society ladies, the erratic young redneck gigolo, the helpless recluse who possesses a poison potent enough to kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah, the elderly and profane Southern belle who is the “soul of pampered self-absorption,” the riotous black drag queen, the snide and conceited antique dealer, the sweet-talking, piano-play These residents of Savannah, along with others, serve as a Greek chorus as Berendt reveals the alliances, rivalries, and conspiracies that proliferate in a community where everyone understands everyone else.

#8 The Gulag Archipelago

Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn uncovers the complete Soviet repression apparatus—the state within the state that controlled all powerfully—drawing on information from his own imprisonment and exile, as well as from more than 200 other prisoners and Soviet archives. We learn about secret police operations, work camps, and prisons; the uprooting or elimination of entire populations; and the welcome that awaited Russian soldiers who had been German prisoners of war through really Shakespearean pictures of its victims—men, women, and children. However, we also see the incredible moral fortitude of the incorruptible, and helpless, who endured severe abuse and degrading treatment. A new introduction to The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956, a gruesome indictment of a system transformed into a true literary miracle, has been added. It now takes into account the fall of the Soviet Union and Solzhenitsyn’s return to Russia.

#9 Guns Germs And Steel

Jared Diamond successfully argues that geographic and environmental forces shaped the modern world in this “artful, insightful, and enjoyable” book. Food-producing societies progressed past the hunter-gatherer stage, developed writing, technology, government, and organized religion, along with terrible viruses and powerful weapons of war, and set off on sea and land adventures to conquer and wipe out preliterate cultures.

Guns, Germs, and Steel charts the development of the modern world and shockingly debunks racially based views of human history. It represents a significant advancement in our knowledge of humanity’s cultures. Awarded the Rhone-Poulenc Prize, the Pulitzer Prize, the Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science, and the Gold Medal by the Commonwealth Club of California.

#10 The Feminine Mystique

The words “landmark,” “breakthrough,” and “classic” hardly do The Feminine Mystique’s avant-garde vision and enduring influence credit. Insidious ideas and systems that damaged women’s confidence in their intellectual talents and kept them at home were precisely described in this 1963 publication as “the problem that has no name.” Betty Friedan caught the disappointments and dashed hopes of a generation in her writing during a time when the average woman got married for the first time in her teens and 60% of female college students left school to get married. She also provided guidance on how women may take back their lives.

The Feminine Mystique, social history, and manifesto rolled into one, is chock full of inspiring stories, interviews, and insights. A new introduction by Gail Collins and an afterword by bestselling author Anna Quindlen are included in this edition’s 50th anniversary.

#14 Weapons Of Math Destruction

The algorithm era arrives. More and more, machines rather than people are making the decisions that have an impact on our lives, such as where we attend school, whether we are able to obtain a job or a loan, and how much we pay for health insurance. Since everyone is subject to the same standards of evaluation, this ought to result in more fairness.

The mathematical models utilized today, however, are unregulated and unchallengeable, even when they are incorrect, as mathematician and data scientist Cathy O’Neil demonstrates. The worst part is that they legitimize discrimination by rewarding the fortunate, punishing the oppressed, and weakening our democracy.

#15 Half The Sky

A passionate appeal to action against the most ubiquitous human rights violation of our time—the subjugation of women and girls in the undeveloped nations from two of our most fervently moral voices. We embark on an odyssey through Africa and Asia with Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn as our guides to meet the extraordinary women fighting there, including a Cambodian teenager sold into sex slavery and an Ethiopian woman who suffered terrible injuries during childbirth. Kristof and WuDunn portray our world with rage, anguish, clarity, and eventually optimism by drawing on the depth of their collective reporting experience.

They demonstrate how little assistance may significantly improve the lives of women and girls worldwide. After eventually breaking free from her brothel, the Cambodian girl established a successful retail store that provides for her family with the aid of an aid organization. The Ethiopian woman got her wounds fixed, and eventually, she graduated to become a surgeon. A Zimbabwean mother of five who was advised to go back to school eventually received her doctorate and worked as an AIDS specialist.
