How Democracies Die: The International Bestseller: What History Reveals About Our Future by Steven Levitsky

‘The most important book of the Trump era’ The Economist

How does a democracy die?
What can we do to save our own?
What lessons does history teach us?

In the 21st century democracy is threatened like never before.

Drawing insightful lessons from across history – from Pinochet’s murderous Chilean regime to Erdogan’s quiet dismantling in Turkey – Levitsky and Ziblatt explain why democracies fail, how leaders like Trump subvert them today and what each of us can do to protect our democratic rights.

‘This book looks to history to provide a guide for defending democratic norms when they are under threat, and finds that it is possible to fight back.’ David Runciman

‘A useful primer on the importance of norms, institutional restraints and civic participation in maintaining a democracy – and how quickly those things can erode when we’re not paying attention’ President Barack Obama

‘A must-read’ 
Andrew Marr, Sunday Times

‘The greatest of the many merits of Levitsky and Ziblatt’s How Democracies Die is their rejection of western exceptionalism. They tell inspiring stories I had not heard before’ Nick Cohen, Observer

‘Provocative, timely. One of my favourite reads this year’ Elif Shafak

‘Anyone who is concerned about the future of democracy should read this brisk, accessible book. Anyone who is not concerned should definitely read it’ Daron Acemoglu, co-author of Why Nations fail

    This little book of mine talks of how sometimes, we as humans, find ourselves holding onto people or moments that truly anchor us down. Sometimes we search for the tiniest bits of beauty because we don’t want to see the bad. Sometimes our minds paint pictures of what they could be, of what could be, of what life could be if one little thing was different. One, little thing. The unhealthy relationship. The toxic soul tie. Only if they could change, then we would be the perfect couple. So we stick through it all. Through the harsh words, the jabs in the heart, the betrayal, the cheating, the mentally and emotionally abuses, we stick in the hopes of them changing. But they never do!! They never will!

    Let me remind you, while you’re praying for someone who mistreats you to change their behavior, you are someone else’s prayer. We need to learn, to shift that energy from those we know don’t deserve us. Wish them well, thank them for the lessons, and unpack our souls in spaces that celebrate us.

    In this book, I place my story in writing and if you would love to read these words, that I’m hoping would reflect your story and touch your hearts.

  • Forget the “10,000 hour rule”… what if it’s possible to learn any new skill in 20 hours or less?
    Take a moment to consider how many things you want to learn to do. What’s on your list? What’s holding you back from getting started? Are you worried about the time and effort it takes to acquire new skills – time you don’t have and effort you can’t spare?
    Research suggests it takes 10,000 hours to develop a new skill. In this nonstop world when will you ever find that much time and energy?
    To make matters worse, the early hours of practicing something new are always the most frustrating. That’s why it’s difficult to learn how to speak a new language, play an instrument, hit a golf ball, or shoot great photos. It’s so much easier to watch TV or surf the web…
    In The First 20 Hours, Josh Kaufman offers a systematic approach to rapid skill acquisition: how to learn any new skill as quickly as possible. His method shows you how to deconstruct complex skills, maximize productive practice, and remove common learning barriers. By completing just 20 hours of focused, deliberate practice you’ll go from knowing absolutely nothing to performing noticeably well.
    This method isn’t theoretical: it’s field-tested. Kaufman invites readers to join him as he field tests his approach by learning to program a Web application, play the ukulele, practice yoga, re-learn to touch type, get the hang of windsurfing, and study the world’s oldest and most complex board game.

  • No risk, pay the cost. Know risk, reap the rewards. In our risk-avoidance culture, we place a high premium on safety. We insure our vacations. We check crash tests on cars. We extend the warranties on our appliances. But by insulating ourselves from the unknown—the risks of life—we miss the great adventure of living our lives to their full potential.

    Ben Carson spent his childhood as an at-risk child on the streets of Detroit, and today he takes daily risks in performing complex surgeries on the brain and the spinal cord. Now, offering inspiring personal examples, Dr. Carson invites us to embrace risk in our own lives. From a man whose life dramatically portrays the connection between great risks and greater successes, here are insights that will help you dispel your fear of risk so you can dream big, aim high, move with confidence, and reap rewards you’ve never imagined. By avoiding risk, are you also avoiding the full potential of your life?
