Ein Roman »mit einem ganz großen Herzen« Daily Express In einer regnerischen Freitagnacht wird Andrew Martin, Professor für Mathematik in Cambridge, aufgegriffen, als er nackt eine Autobahn entlangwandert. Professor Martin ist nicht mehr er selbst. Ein Wesen mit überlegener Intelligenz und von einem weit entfernten Stern hat von ihm Besitz ergriffen. Dieser neue Andrew ist nicht begeistert von seiner neuen Existenz. Er hat eine denkbar negative Meinung von den Menschen. Jeder weiß schließlich, dass sie zu Egoismus, übermäßigem Ehrgeiz und Gewalttätigkeit neigen. Doch andererseits: Kann eine Lebensform, die Dinge wie Weißwein und Erdnussbutter erfunden hat, wirklich grundschlecht und böse sein? Und was sind das für seltsame Gefühle, die ihn überkommen, wenn er Debussy hört oder Isobel, der Frau des Professors, in die Augen blickt?

In Save the Humans, award-winning documentary filmmaker Rob Stewart tells his captivating life-story-so-far—from self-professed “animal nerd” to one of the world’s leading environmental activists, from a person whose sole focus was saving his beloved sharks to a mission to save us all. Rob Stewart has always been in love with creatures, the odder or more misunderstood the better. His passion for all living things, including Satan, his 7-foot-long, 80-pound pet water monitor, has led him around the world, as a university student studying zoology in Kenya, as a wildlife photographer in Madagascar and Southeast Asia, and ultimately as a documentary filmmaker in the Pacific shooting his innovative and award-winning documentary Sharkwater. Risking arrest and mafia reprisal in Costa Rica, nearly losing a leg to flesh-eating disease in Panama and getting lost at sea in the remote Galapagos Islands, Stewart is living proof that the best way to create change in the world is to dive in over your head. His documentary sparked shark fin bans around the world, but his story doesn’t end with saving sharks. Stewart has set his sights on a slightly bigger goal—saving the human species. He has criss-crossed the globe to meet with the visionaries, entrepreneurs, scientists and children working to solve our environmental crises, and his message is clear: the revolution to save humanity has started and the only thing missing is you!

The rapid growth of our digital world has brought huge advantages - access to information anywhere, at any time, and the ability to communicate with colleagues, family and friends around the globe in real-time. But in other ways, the same technology has also disconnected us. Computers risk becoming less of a productivity tool and more like information firehoses, drowning us in a deluge of data that can keep us from doing meaningful, real work. The devices in our hands connect us like never before, but they vie for our attention to the point where they are beginning to disconnect us from the real world. In this book, Dave Coplin, Chief Envisioning Officer at Microsoft UK, argues that right now it feels like the machines are taking over but if we stop thinking about the digital deluge as a problem and instead see it as an incredible opportunity we will be able to redress the balance. Technology offers our society so much but it is up to us, the humans, to rise to that potential.

This is an interesting tale, so keep your mind open to all possibilities. So please enjoy as we find out how the twists and turns in the lives of Evyonne and Addum lead to an unlikely union between two people and the intense and true love that they find in each other. This helped them stay united when they found out that they were linked in the most unbelievable way to space travellers (or aliens), who were known as the Gret race of beings by all others who roamed the known universe as they did and how the lovers had to convince the Grets to stop the destruction of the Earth and all life on it. Their task made even harder, as the Grets had contempt for the continuously warring Humans, who had only ever managed to rack up eight days of world peace in the whole time that the Grets had been taking more notice of the Blue Planet (or the Earth as the Humans called it) ever since the Blue Planet had cooled enough to start to support life. That eventually included the Humans. So the questions for Evyonne and Addum were as follows: Was their love for all life and each other enough? Could they really convince Joewell, the elder of the Grets, that the Earth and all life should not be destroyed? So read on to see how the amazing symbiotic love affair between two such seemingly different people, whose love breached all the boundaries, was able to change the way the Grets viewed the Humans. But could the Humans change their warring ways and realise the truth that ‘peace is cool’?
