With a foreword from U2’s Larry Mullen Jr, Buried Treasure uncovers music albums from the people who know music best. Musicians, actors, and producers all contribute their favourite albums to create an eclectic collection of all genres and decades of music.
Buried Treasure explores the overlooked, forgotten and uncrowned classic albums that have come to be favourites of contemporary pop culture icons. This book celebrates the unveiling of that dusty old record; it ventures into the farther reaches of your iTunes library, and explores the nostalgic love held for an album that may have never have hit the top of the charts, but that was closely coveted.
It features an array of reviews, stories and recommendations from Dan Hegarty and individuals such as Cillian Murphy, Imelda May, and Aidan Gillen. In the words of author Dan Hegarty, “this book is about rediscovering, introducing and celebrating.” Read it and see what new music, new or old, awaits to be discovered!
Richard Dawkins once wrote, “Let us try to teach generosity and altruism, because we are born selfish.” Francis Collins, former Director of the Human Genome Project, believed that our selfless moral feelings conflict with the evolutionary urge to preserve our DNA, and could only have come to pass as a result of divine intervention. They were both wrong.
In The Pursuit of Kindness, Éamonn Toland provides compelling evidence from biology, psychology, history and archaeology that, for 95 percent of the time that humans have walked the earth, survival of the fittest for our species has meant survival of the kindest. In fascinating, clearly written and entertaining prose, he argues that collaboration is more deeply engrained than competition, and that it is only by working together that human beings can prosper. In an increasingly polarised world, The Pursuit of Kindness offers an optimistic view of human development; it is essential reading for all those interested in the survival of the human species.
The Pursuit of Kindness is published on 27 May and is available for preorder now.
