Un m&étodo probado para conseguir una vida plena y feliz Con La ciencia de la felicidad, la investigadora y profesora de psicolog&ía Sonja Lyubomirsky presenta el primer programa para incrementar la felicidad de las personas basado en investigaciones cient&íficas. Sus estudios demuestran que, pese a lo que solemos pensar, la felicidad personal no depende de factores como el dinero, el trabajo, la pareja o la juventud. En realidad, s&ólo un diez por ciento en t&érminos de felicidad se apoya en circunstancias externas. La capacidad para la felicidad es innata en un cincuenta por ciento, pero el cuarenta por ciento restante se atribuye a lo que hacemos y a lo que pensamos; esto es, a nuestras actividades intencionadas y a nuestras estrategias mentales. Por eso, todos y cada uno de nosotros poseemos a&ún un amplio potencial para la dicha y el bienestar al que podemos acceder si ponemos en pr&áctica los ejercicios y las estrategias propuestos en este libro.

Starr es una chica de dieciséis años que vive entre dos mundos: el barrio pobre de gente negra donde nació, y su escuela situada en un elegante distrito residencial blanco. El difícil equilibrio entre ambos se hace añicos cuando ella se convierte en testigo de la muerte a tiros de su mejor amigo, Khalil, a manos de un policía. A partir de ese momento, todo lo que Starr diga acerca de la aterradora noche que cambió su vida podrá ser usado de excusa por unos y como arma por otros. Y lo peor de todo es que ambos bandos esperan que dé un paso en falso para poner fin a su vida. Inspirado por el movimiento Black Lives Matter, el debut de Angie Thomas sobre una chica normal sometida a tan difíciles circunstancias aborda cuestiones de racismo y violencia policial con inteligencia, corazón y una honestidad inquebrantable. "Angie Thomas ha escrito una novela asombrosa, brillante y desgarradora que será recordada como un clásico de nuestro tiempo." John Green, autor de Bajo la misma estrella

Novela brillante, delirio ingenioso, con una mecánica del suspense que sorprenderá al lector una y otra vez. Una experiencia literaria excepcional en gravedad cero. «La mejor novela de ciencia ficción en años.» Wall Street Journal Seis días atrás el astronauta Mark Watney se convirtió en uno de los primeros hombres en caminar por la superficie de Marte. Ahora está seguro de que será el primer hombre en morir allí. La tripulación de la nave en que viajaba se ve obligada a evacuar el planeta a causa de una tormenta de polvo, dejando atrás a Mark tras darlo por muerto. Pero él está vivo, y atrapado a millones de kilómetros de cualquier ser humano, sin posibilidad de enviar señales a la Tierra. De todos modos, si lograra establecer conexión, moriría mucho antes de que el rescate llegara. Sin embargo, Mark no se da por vencido; armado consu ingenio, sus habilidades y sus conocimientos sobre botánica, se enfrentará a obstáculos aparentemente insuperables. Por suerte, el sentido del humor resultará ser su mayor fuente de fuerza. Obstinado en seguir con vida, incubará un plan absolutamente demencial para ponerse en contacto con la NASA. Reseñas: «Una de las mejores novelas que he leído en mucho tiempo. Parece tan real que casi podría ser no-ficción y, sin embargo, tiene la unidad narrativa y la potencia de un cohete. Un Apollo 13 multiplicado por cien.» Douglas Preston, #1 de The New York Times «¡No lo podía dejar! Tiene la rara combinación de ser una buena y original historia y con unos personajes interesantes con una fascinante precisión técnica. Una suma de MacGyver y La isla misteriosa de Verne.» Chris Hadfield, astronauta, comandante de la Estación Espacial Internacional y autor de la Guía de un astronauta para vivir en la Tierra «El mejor libro que he leído en mucho tiempo. Inteligente, divertido e intenso.» Hugh Howey, autor de Espejismo «Weir ha creado un thriller de supervivencia que no da tregua, entretenido y creativo, un MacGyver atrapado en Marte que se lee, se siente y se vive de manera tan real y terrible como la verdadera historia de la Apollo 13.» Ernest Cline, autor de Ready Player One «El marciano se perfila como el nuevo Robinson Crusoe de Defoe, pero escrito por alguien aún más brillante.» Larry Niven, ganador de varios premios Hugo y Nebula «Fuerte y valiente. Un Robinson Crusoe en Marte en el siglo XXI.» Steve Berry
