Seeing through the fog

We’re living in a time when it’s increasingly difficult to tell fact from fiction, discern a real news story from a PR puff piece, understand what a politician is really trying to say, escape from the influence of advertising or work out how to manage our kids’ lives online.

We’re surrounded by hot air, interest groups, information and influence everywhere and it can feel overwhelming. Everyone’s talking at you, trying to influence you, and yet no-one is helping to lead us through this fog, so that we can deal with this stuff and live well-informed, flourishing lives.

Out today - The Life Trap

Today at Life Squared we are launching an important new publication - our first book, in fact. It’s called ‘The Life Trap - and how to escape it’, and is available as a free download or audiobook, here.

Using the latest insights from psychology and neuroscience, the book argues that human beings are not as rational or well-informed as most of us think we are. We are in fact highly vulnerable to manipulation by other people - particularly those with wealth and power.

Check out our audiobooks!

Over the next few months we'll be producing audiobook versions of most of our publications for you to download or listen to while you're on the go.

We've already produced quite a few of these, so check them out now!

The big questions of life

What is the meaning of life? How should we live? What happens when we die?

Our Director @RichardDocwra has written an e-book for Humanists UK on these, and other, big questions of life, and it's just been published.

You can downlad it (for free) here.

This booklet is a basic, no-nonsense guide to answering some of these big questions from a non-religious viewpoint – one that anyone, whether they are religious or not, will be able to get something from.

Out now - How to eat and exercise well

It can be can be extremely difficult in the modern world to make well-informed choices about food given the range of influences that are promoting unhealthy food, dubious diets and upholding a philosophy of life that is neither particularly healthy or good for the environment.

Our new guide therefore helps you cur through the confusion, and sets out some simple, broad principles to enable us to get into good eating and exercise habits so that we remove much of the angst and complexity from the choices we’re making.

How to eat and exercise well - coming soon!

We're just finishing the design for our new guide, entitled 'How to eat and exercise well', and we're very excited to get it finished and launched, as we think it's a pubilcation that's urgently needed.

It provides a no-nonsense approach to eating well and getting active. It cuts through all the confusion about food and health and makes it as simple as possible to achieve a healthy lifestyle - whilst looking after the planet and saving money.
