    " Comment vivre dans un monde fou sans basculer nous-mêmes dans la folie ? "

    Le monde embrouille nos esprits. Les taux d'anxiété et de stress sont en continuelle augmentation. Sur cette planète frénétique et nerveuse, nous sommes face à un paradoxe : plus nous sommes connectés, moins nous sommes capables d'empathie et plus nous nous sentons seuls. Les médias, Internet ou les messages publicitaires nous induisent à nous faire du souci pour tout – de l'environnement à notre alimentation, de la politique à notre indice de masse corporelle –, à vouloir plus que ce que nous avons, à sentir qu'
    il nous manque toujours quelque chose...

    Comment devons-nous réagir et nous défendre ?

    Dans
    Débranchez-vous !, Matt Haig explique comment nous pouvons nous ré-humaniser en ces temps d'anxiété. Avec son style libre, spontané et généreux, l'auteur partage sa propre expérience ainsi que la sagesse qu'il a apprise des autres, et explore notre relation avec le sommeil, la santé, les supermarchés, les smartphones, les réseaux sociaux, les diverses addictions et, surtout, comment survivre tout en étant des citoyens informés et responsables.

    Ce livre vous rendra plus calme, plus heureux, plus humain. Il vous aidera à vous faire moins de souci et à mieux dormir, il changera vos priorités et modifiera profondément la manière dont vous passerez votre précieux temps sur notre planète.

  • Anglais Echo Boy

    Matt Haig

    Audrey's father taught her that to stay human in the modern world, she had to build a moat around herself; a moat of books and music, philosophy and dreams. A moat that makes Audrey different from the echoes: sophisticated, emotionless machines, built to resemble humans and to work for human masters.



    Daniel is an echo - but he's not like the others. He feels a connection with Audrey; a feeling Daniel knows he was never designed to have, and cannot explain. And when Audrey is placed in terrible danger, he's determined to save her.



    A powerful story about love, loss and the fight for survival, from the bestselling author of The Humans.
