Wired to Eat: Turn off Cravings, Rewire your appetite for Weight Loss, and Determine the Foods that Work for You by Robb Wolf

The problem of unhealthy eating that leads to excessive weight gain or even obesity has officially grown into an epidemic, and it is affecting more and more young people and is getting more complicated. Nowadays, this issue concerns not only adults and the elderly but also a lot of young people who are living on junk food that is packed with salt, saturated fats, and dangerous chemicals.  

The title of this inarguably useful book is self-explanatory. The book is about healthy dieting and is a sequel to the author’s bestseller The Paleo Solution, in which he advocated a low-carb diet. This diet helped many people not only lose body mass but also maintain a healthy weight. The first book was just a stepping stone, a preparatory stage for an ultimate diet restructuring. The essence of this new book is that Robb Wolf does not offer a quick-fix crash diet that would have doubtful results. It has a set of guidelines on how to develop a healthy diet that will work for you, in other words, it promotes an individualistic approach to healthy eating. Besides, it has over 70 recipes for scrumptious dishes, well-elaborated meal plans, and even guidelines on eating a ketogenic diet which is gaining extreme popularity among professional athletes and young fitness enthusiasts.   

Unshakable: The Financial Freedom Playbook by Tony Robbins 

There is a saying – “Money rules the world” – and it is more than relevant to the present social situation. The earlier a young person starts to learn financial literacy and pursue financial independence, the better. It is much easier to make a difference in the world if you have enough financial resourses to realize projects – big or small and no matter how ambitious – or become a philanthropist or invest in a serious political project. There are many ways to obtain a financial education: you could enter a prestigious educational institution and get to know the academic side of entrepreneurship, or you could just launch a start-up, and suffer your share of bumps and bruises before attaining success in the chosen area. Regardless of the path you choose, Unshakable: the Financial Freedom Playbook would be a great asset for you. Tony Robbins, one of the best life coaches and financial gurus of our time, gives plenty of valuable advice on how to achieve financial freedom in today’s world of uncertainty. Remember, it is only when you have financial freedom that you can make a tangible difference. 

Extracted by R.R. Haywood 

Fantasy and sci-fi novels are enormously popular among young people. Literary masterpieces are being turned into movies and global franchises that last for decades, and there is a great chance that Extracted will become another big name in the sci-fi world. It has everything a wonderful fantasy novel needs: a thrilling plot about an event in the future, a number of curiously interwoven storylines, interesting protagonists, a time machine, and . . . the end of the world.

The initial events take place in 2061, in Britain. A scientist invents a time machine which he intends to use to adjust events in the past. But, as the saying goes, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” The scientist discovers that his experiments might lead to the end of the world. He has no choice but to concoct a crazy plan and assemble a team that has only a slight chance to head off a catastrophe.
