    I "Ét liv Én tid Ét menneske" stiller filosoffen og lederen Morten Albæk spørgsmålet, hvordan det kan lade sig gøre, at vi som et af verdens rigeste og mest lykkelige folkeslag samtidig kan være så hårdt ramt på vores mentale velbefindende, målt på antallet af mennesker, der lider af stress, angst og depression. Undervejs gør han op med begrebet work-life balance og forestillingen om, at en skarpere adskillelse mellem arbejde og fritid kan løse problemet.

    Morten Storm was an unlikely Jihadi. A six-foot-one red-haired Dane, Storm spent his teens in and out of trouble. A book about the Prophet Mohammed prompted his conversion to Islam, and Storm sought purpose in a community of believers. He attended a militant madrasah in Yemen, named his son Osama, and became close friends with Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born terrorist cleric. But after a decade of Jihadi life, he not only repudiated extremism but, in a quest for atonement, became a double agent for the CIA and British and Danish intelligence.

But then - after a sudden loss of faith - Morten Storm made a life-changing decision. He became a double agent and joined the CIA, MI6 and MI5. Filled with hair-raising close calls and deception, Storm's story builds to the climactic finale when he must betray his friend and mentor al-Awlaki - al-Qaeda's biggest threat to the West.

Gleichermaßen betroffen von turbulenten Ereignissen und von massiven, schnelllebigen Wirkungskräften, die wir weder Voraussagen noch beeinflussen können - was unterscheidet diejenigen, die außerordentlich erfolgreich abschneiden, von denen, die unterdurchschnittlich oder noch schlechter abschneiden?

Arlette Levy Andersen levede over et år i koncentrationslejrene Birkenau og Auschwitz i slutningen af Anden Verdenskrig. I fire årtier fortalte Arlette end ikke sin egen jødiske familie, hvad der hændte, fra hun blev arresteret af Gestapo på et fransk universitet i efteråret 1943, til hun i maj 1945 stærkt afkræftet ankom med toget til sin hjemby Paris, hvor hun blev hentet af sine forældre. I mange år forsøgte Arlette at glemme.

    Med Menneskesmuglere i Agadez. På tomandshånd med Bashar al-Assad i en villa i Damaskus. I centrum af et sønderskudt Mosul, få timer efter byen blev revet ud af Islamisk Stats greb. Til bryllupsfest i det svært tilgængelige Nordkorea. I hælene på de amerikanere, der løftede Donald Trump ind i Det Hvide Hus. Med tapre drenge i Aleppos udbombede gader. På jagt efter den russiske folkestemning. Og midt i optøjer i Jerusalem.

    Rasmus Tantholdt rejser ind i verdenshistorien, mens den bliver til. Han opsøger krige og konflikter for at fortælle om de kvinder, mænd og børn, der står midt i dem. Den journalistiske ambition, både i hans mangeårige virke som udenrigskorrespondent for TV 2 og i hans bøger, er at gå til alt og alle med åbne øjne og give plads til forskelligartede stemmer, især dem, vi ikke hører så ofte.
