Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Als Amerika noch höflich war Was der erste amerikanische Präsident als Dreizehnjähriger schon wusste: Höflichkeit kommt nie aus der Mode. In diesem Fundstück aus dem 18. Jahrhundert kombiniert er auf originelle Weise Benimmratgeber mit philosophischen Lebensweisheiten. Washington, der in jungen Jahren noch mit der Rechtschreibung kämpfte, schrieb über Tischmanieren, das Verhalten im Gespräch und persönliche Charakterpflege. Nicht zuletzt dem einen oder anderen amtierenden Präsidenten würde dieses Buch guttun! »In der Gegenwart anderer sollst du nicht vor dich hin summen, mit den Fingern trommeln oder mit den Füßen den Takt schlagen.« (Nr. 4) »Entledige dich nicht deiner Kleidung, wenn andere dabei sind, und verlasse die Garderobe nicht nur halb bekleidet.« (Nr. 7) »Deine Miene sei angenehm, sollte aber den nötigen Ernst zeigen, wenn es um ernste Dinge geht.« (Nr. 19)

Authentisch und anrührend Ein Buch, das es eigentlich gar nicht geben dürfte. Denn mit 24 Jahren wird Matt Haig von einer lebensbedrohlichen Krankheit überfallen, von der er bis dahin kaum etwas wusste: einer Depression. Es geschieht auf eine physisch dramatische Art und Weise, die ihn buchstäblich an den Abgrund bringt. Dieses Buch beschreibt, wie er allmählich die zerstörerische Krankheit besiegt und ins Leben zurückfindet. Eine bewegende, witzige und mitreißende Hymne an das Leben und das Menschsein – ebenso unterhaltsam wie berührend.

Nichts reinkritzeln. Keine Knicke machen. Nichts draufkleckern. Und bloss nicht im Regen liegen lassen... Wir haben es alle von klein auf gelernt: Bücher muss man gut behandeln. Dass es aber unheimlich Spass macht, genau das nicht zu tun, zeigt dieses ideensprühende Buch: Bohre mit einem Bleistift Löcher in diese Seite. Dokumentiere dein Abendessen. Archiviere hier die Briefmarken all deiner Post. Schreibe mit dem Stift im Mund. Tobe dich auf dieser Seite aus, wenn du richtig sauer bist. Jede Seite dieses Buches wirkt wie ein Befreiungsschlag und setzt ungeahnte kreative Energien frei. Schaffen ist zerstören, sagt Keri Smith.
