A More Beautiful Question by Warren Berger was a book about curiosity before books about curiosity were all the rage. Berger posits that asking better questions is the key to having better ideas in business and in life, and he has a lot of tips—backed up by social science and real-life case studies—to help readers cultivate skillful inquiry. A special tenth-anniversary edition hits shelves in February.

Briefly, Perfectly Human by Alua Arthur: If you’ve never heard of a death doula, it is exactly what it sounds like: a person who helps you navigate end-of-life matters, from the logistical to the spiritual and everything in between. Billed as “the country’s leading death doula,” Arthur has supported thousands of individuals and their families through the dying process. Here, she offers advice and philosophical framework for approaching life’s final questions. Coming April 16.

Be a Revolution by Ijeoma Oluo: No time like an election year for thinking about how you participate in the systems that structure our lives and our societies. As the subtitle promises, activist and writer Oluo explores “how everyday people are fighting oppression and changing the world—and how you can, too.” And if taking down a whole system sounds intimidating, fear not. Oluo identifies small actions that can lead to big changes and suggests easy entry points for getting involved in issues close to home. Available now.
