Organizational psychologist, TED speaker, and podcast host Adam Grant is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take. He is an expert at opening other people's minds–and our own. In our daily lives, we listen to opinions that make us feel good, instead of ideas that make us think hard. Think Again examines the critical art of rethinking. With bold ideas and rigorous evidence, Grant investigates how we can embrace the joy of being wrong, bring nuance to charged conversations, and build communities of lifelong learners. 

"In an increasingly divided world, the lessons in this book are more important than ever."—Bill and Melinda Gates

Mosley's infamous detective Easy Rawlins is back, with a new mystery to solve on the sun-soaked streets of Southern California. Ezekiel "Easy" Porterhouse Rawlins is an unlicensed private investigator turned hard-boiled detective who is always willing to do what it takes to get things done in the racially charged, dark underbelly of Los Angeles. Set against the social and political upheaval of the late 1960s, Blood Grove is ultimately a story about survival, not only of the body but also of the soul.
  

One of America's most celebrated and beloved writers, Walter Mosley received the 2020 Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from the National Book Foundation. 

“A new Easy Rawlins novel is always big news in crime-fiction circles, and this fifteenth entry in the series does not disappoint.” —Booklist
