Why Men Fight and Why

We Like To Watch


Jonathan Gottschall

jonathan gottschall


This book explores the history and the science of violence. This month, the boxing world is gearing up for what's being billed as "The Fight of The Century" between welterweight challenger Manny Pacquiao and undefeated Champ Floyd Mayweather.. The fight, which is scheduled for May 2nd, has been in the planning stages for 5 years and each fighter will become multi-millionaires as they bring Pro Boxing back to mainstream audiences around the world. While most women and some men don't relish the spectacle of two athletes pummeling each other...it incites blood lust in millions of fight fans who watch World Wrestling or Mixed Martial Arts cage fights. In this fascinating new book, "THE PROFESSOR IN THE CAGE", former English Professor turned Research Fellow and L.A. Times Book Prize Finalist Jonathan Gottschall reveals his own personal experience in challenging himself to train as a Mixed Martial Arts fighter...and he also explains the fascinating reasons "Why Men Fight And Why We Like To Watch."

Angela Flournoy

angela flournoy


The saga of the large and prideful Turner family spans more than half a century emerging from the South northward to the east side of Detroit. The historically rich story opens in 2008 when the Great Recession bears down on the Motor City. It centers on family patriarch, Charles...also known as Cha-Cha Turner, the oldest among 13 Turner siblings born to Francis and Viola. All were raised in the modest family home -- its fate is now in jeopardy. What’s to become of "THE TURNER HOUSE" and the complicated lives of Cha-Cha, youngest sister Lelah and the others?

How Meditation Is Changing

Business from the Inside Out


David Gelles

david gelles


In the C Suites and elsewhere among Fortune 500 companies like General Mills, Google, Ford Motor Company and others, meditation is being practiced as a way to reduce stress, enhance focus and improve overall well-being. The benefits of practicing Mindfulness are having a positive impact on every facet of business with improved productivity and workers who are less stressed and more focused. "New York Times" Business Reporter David Gelles, who's been practicing Mindfulness since 1998, explains how the Science of Stillness evolved over centuries, made its debut in 18th Century America and is now influencing a generation of workers and society, too.
