From its early days as an unknown start-up, The Conversation published landmark essays such as Patrick Stokes's 'No, you're not entitled to your opinion', which saw the organisation grow into an important and valued part of the news media. It has since expanded to eight regions around the world and is published in four languages.

Contained within this ten-year anniversary collection are the essays that put The Conversation on the map: contemporary slavery, how Jesus wasn't white, how long sex usually lasts, and the close friendships birds form with people.

There are timeless thought pieces and analysis of some of the biggest news events of recent times - the election of Donald Trump, Brexit, coronavirus and the #MeToo movement - as well as insights into why bad moods are good for you and why tests won't help kids who are poor spellers. These pieces chart not only the course of one media organisation but also the world over the past decade.
