Authors: Stefan Zagmeister and Jessica Walsh
"What is the difference between God and Le Corbusier? God does not think that he is Le Corbusier" - with these words begins a book by famous designers Stefan Zagmeister and Jessica Walsh. Artists set themselves a difficult task: to find out what beauty is and how it affects our lives. They turn to philosophy, history and science to understand why beauty attracts us and how it affects our feelings and behavior. And of course, Sagmeister and Walsh show us how beauty can actually make the world a better place.
This book will especially appeal to designers, illustrators, architects, photographers, artists and everyone whose work is related to visual art.
Available from August 31.

Never before has humanity lived so carefree: we have defeated many diseases, all the main wars are behind us, we have gained access to knowledge and surrounded ourselves with technologies that make our life comfortable. But the better life becomes, the more we worry: the planet is heating up, economic inequality is going wild, politicians are stealing and lying.
In his new book, the author talks about the crisis of hope, about the futility of faith in a just world and that the quality of our life is determined by the quality of our personality, and not by what blessings or hardships the world is showering us with. If you have a roof over your head, you have breakfast with eggs and bacon and even fly on vacation a couple of times a year, and you still have a “bad job,” Mark Manson will help you develop a sober look at everything that surrounds you.

Authors: The book was published by the publishing house MYTH in conjunction with Encyclopedia-based British publishing house Dorling Kindersley (DK). The text was checked by scientists, experts in their fields: Polina Dyadina, graduate student of the Department of Astrophysics and Star Astronomy, Physics Department of Moscow State University, and Alexei Bondarev, paleozoologist and forensic expert, member of the Russian Geographical Society.
The authors abandoned the "traditional" division into different sciences (chemistry, physics, astronomy, biology) and talk about the world as a complex system where everything is interconnected and subject to the same laws.
This book is an anti-textbook, not like boring school books. It provides an understanding of the importance of scientific knowledge.
The book is divided into five large sections: "Matter", "Energy", "Life", "Space" and "Earth". Is artificial intelligence dangerous to humans? What are stem cells and why are they said it’s unethical to use them? How did the universe come about and how will it end? You will get clear and precise answers to these and other questions.
The book is on sale from September 1.
