Sex Robots & Vegan Meat

By Jenny Kleeman

The award-winning film-maker and journalist, Jenny Kleeman, was one of the first guests on the Inside Ideas podcast with Marc Buckley. She spoke to Marc on the eve of the release of the book, which has just the best title of any book you are likely to pick up this year And the content is every bit as good as Jenny takes you on a journey through the ever changing realities of what it means to be human in a rapidly changing world. One where you can ‘eat meat without killing animals, have the ideal sexual relationship without compromise, and have the perfect death without suffering’. Jenny goes beyond these in her exploration of the other ways human nature is likely to change in the years ahead.

Sitopia

by Carolyn Steel

Carolyn Steel was the second guest on Inside Ideas with Marc Buckley. She was a brilliant guest so it is no surprise Sitopia is every bit as engaging and enlightening. In Sitopia Carolyn explores how food can safe the world and at every stage she says she uses food as a ‘lens to explore the origins and dilemmas of our current situation’, which is being shaped by issues such as climate change, pollution, deforestation, and antibiotic resistance. And Carolyn looks at the ways food choices will ultimately dictate how successful we are in overcoming these challenges.

Sasha Sagan

For Small Creatures Such as We: Rituals for Finding Meaning in Our Unlikely World

by Sasha Sagan

Sasha’s first book, inspired in part by the work of her parents, Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan, is an exploration of the marvels of nature, as revealed by science, which require no faith in order to be believed. The book is an exercise in skepticism without cynicism, told through memoir and social history. It is a remarkable read, which Kirkus Reviews called ‘profound, elegantly written ruminations on the exquisite splendors of life’.

Human Business

Professor Thomas Juli

Written in German, the book argues for the return of the human in the digital age. During the Corona period, we learned to appreciate technology. Thanks to the internet, we were still connected to the outside world, video conferences and online seminars shot up like mushrooms. But can we still be human in the digital age? Or is digitization taking over our lives?

The book explains how human business is a focus on people – be it employees, entrepreneurs, customers or the social environment. That it stands for a new, shared sense of responsibility and a corporate culture characterised by trust and respect.
