Être un peu plus zen, c'est déjà beaucoup. Et c'est faisable. Dan Harris, c'est Candide au pays du développement personnel. Présentateur télé, stressé chronique, sceptique systématique, rien ne le prédisposait à s'intéresser au développement personnel ou à la spiritualité. Mais son patron l'envoie enquêter sur les stars du développement personnel. Le voici rencontrant les stars du développement personnel, de Deepak Chopra à Eckhart Tolle, en passant par les télé-évangélistes, avec un regard toujours curieux, parfois narquois, et très souvent amusé. Mais, entre les propositions les plus ésotériques, et celles carrément loufoques qui promettent le bonheur à 100%, n'y a-t-il pas moyen, pour un esprit cartésien, de devenir - et c'est déjà beaucoup - 10% plus heureux ?

What follows is a dark and hilarious odyssey as Antoine tries everything from alcoholism to stock-trading in order to lighten the burden of his brain on his soul.

Born in Lyon of France in 1900, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry considered himself primarily as a pilot. For 20 years he made numerous cartography and mailing missions for commercial companies. Air transmissions were the key factor concerning his professional and literature profile. He started writing The Little Prince during the WW II, when he was forced to abandon airforce (due to Germany’s invasion in France) and seek refuge in New York. His great desire of going back, hopefully after the war, is depicted as the nostalgia of being a child again, something that is so evident in Little Prince. The Sahara desert is the scenery of Little Prince’s story. The narrator’s plane has crashed there and he has scarcely some food and water to survive. Trying to comprehend what caused the crash, the Little Prince appears. The serious blonde little boy asks to draw him a sheep. The narrator consents to the strange fellow’s request. They soon become friends and the Little Prince informs the pilot that he is from a small planet, the asteroid 325, talks to him about the baobabs, his planet volcanoes and the mysterious rose that grew on his planet. He also talks to him about their friendship and the lie that evoked his journey to other planets. Often puzzled by the grown-ups’ behavior, the little traveler becomes a total and eternal symbol of innocence and love, of responsibility and devotion. Through him we get to see how insightful children are and how grown-ups aren’t. Children use their heart to feel what’s really important, not the eyes…

In a letter to his friend Alexei Suvorin, in 1895, Chekhov wrote that he was working on a new play: "A comedy -- three females, six males, four acts, a landscape (a view of a lake), much conversation about literature, little action, and five tons of love". "The Seagull" is Chekhov's extraordinary gathering of a group of bruised and incandescent dreamers who cannot, no matter how they try, get what they want. It is also one of the masterpieces of theatre about theatre; an exploration of how telling stories and coining symbols interacts with life. Benedict Andrews' adaptation brilliantly reawakens the spirit of Chekhov's great play. Set in a world which is at once Russia then and Australia now, this new version is charged with all the good faith and natural poetry of Chekhov's original. (6 male, 3 female).

The astonishing novel Brave New World, originally published in 1932, presents Aldous Huxley's legendary vision of a world of tomorrow utterly transformed. In Huxley's darkly satiric yet chillingly prescient imagining of a "utopian" future, humans are genetically designed and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, it remains remarkably relevant to this day as both a warning to be heeded and as a thought-provoking yet satisfying entertainment. This deluxe edition also includes the nonfiction work "Brave New World Revisited," "a thought-jabbing, terrifying book" (Chicago Tribune), first published in 1958. It is a fascinating essay in which Huxley compares the modern-day world with his prophetic fantasy envisioned in Brave New World. He scrutinizes threats to humanity such as overpopulation, propaganda, and chemical persuasion, and explains why we have found it virtually impossible to avoid them. With a Foreword by Christopher Hitchens

"Point de lendemain (No Tomorrow) is the English translation of a French 18th century masterpiece, Point de Lendemain by Dominique Vivant Denon. Written in 1777 and re-edited in 1812, Point de Lendemain is a record of the initiation of a young man and a member of a secret society. Giovanna Summerfield's preface and notes will offer a new way of reading Point de Lendemain, marginalizing the triviality of sex and the love triangle, which has been thus far seen as a physical need rather than as an expression of supremacy and challenge of God. Both the theme of love and the search for ethical answers are current and pertinent even in our days, thus they continue to make this work of art appealing and fresh."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
