  • & THEN YOURE DEAD   WORLDS MOST INTERESTING WAYS TO DIE
    & THEN YOURE DEAD WORLDS MOST INTERESTING WAYS TO DIE
    What would happen if you stuck your head into a nuclear particle accelerator? What if you jumped into an interstellar black hole, or slipped out of a deep-sea submarine wearing only a pair of Speedos?

    In And Then You're Dead: The world's most interesting ways to die, we'll give serious answers to these horribly interesting questions in a way a layperson can understand. Illustrated with straight-forward technical art and leavened by small doses of dry humor, the book will be both scientifically informative and gruesomely entertaining. Relying on the deeply human observation that things which actually happen compel little interest, there will be no discussion of heart attacks or car wrecks. But there will be plenty to learn about those people unfortunate enough to get swallowed by a whale.

  • 10% HUMAN   HOW YOUR BODYS MICROBES HOLD THE KEY TO HEALTH & HAPPINESS
    10% HUMAN HOW YOUR BODYS MICROBES HOLD THE KEY TO HEALTH & HAPPINESS
    In this groundbreaking book Allana Collen explores the extraordinary world of the powerful microbes that make up 90% of the human body. You are just 0% human. For every one of the cells that make your body, there are nine impostor cells. You are not just flesh and blood, muscle and bone, brain and skin, but bacteria and fungi. You are not an individual, but a colony. Far from being passive, the trillions of microbes that live on and in you are intimately involved in running your body. As Alanna Collen explores, the modern epidemics of 'Western' diseases - obesity, mental health problems, gut disorders, allergies, autoimmunity, and even cancer - have their root in our failure to cherish our most fundamental and enduring relationship: that with our personal colony of microbes. Antibiotics, antibacterial cleaners, rapidly changing diets and our obsession with hygiene vastly reduced the microbe community we carry. Unlike our human cells, though, we can change our microbes for the better. ' 0% Human' provides a revelatory guide to the role of your body's microbes in health and happiness. This is popular science at its most relevant: life will never seem the same again.

    100 YEAR OF LIFE LIFE EXPECTANCY ON RISE HOW WILL YOU COPE
    What will your 100-year life look like?

    Does the thought of working for 60 or 70 years fill you with dread? Or can you see the potential for a more stimulating future as a result of having so much extra time?
    Many of us have been raised on the traditional notion of a three-stage approach to our working lives- education, followed by work and then retirement. But this well-established pathway is already beginning to collapse life expectancy is rising, final-salary pensions are vanishing, and increasing numbers of people are juggling multiple careers. Whether you are 18, 45 or 60, you will need to do things very differently from previous generations and learn to structure your life in completely new ways.
    The 100-Year Life is here to help.
    Drawing on the unique pairing of their experience in psychology and economics, Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott offer a broad-ranging analysis as well as a raft of solutions, showing how to rethink your finances, your education, your career and your relationships and create a fulfilling 100-year life.
    e How can you fashion a career and life path that defines you and your values and creates a shifting balance between work and leisure?
    e What are the most effective ways of boosting your physical and mental health over a longer and more dynamic lifespan?
    e How can you make the most of your intangible assets such as family and friends as you build a productive, longer life?
    e In a multiple-stage life how can you learn to make the transitions that will be so crucial and experiment with new ways of living, working and learning?
    Shortlisted for the FT/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award, The 100-Year Life is a wake-up call that describes what to expect and considers the choices and options that you will face. It is also fundamentally a call to action for individuals, politicians, firms and governments and offers the clearest demonstration that a 100-year life can be a wonderful and inspiring one.

  • 1001 IDEAS THAT CHANGED  WAY WE THINK
    1001 IDEAS THAT CHANGED WAY WE THINK
    Ranging from the ancient wisdom of Confucius and Plato to today's cutting-edge thinkers, 1001 Ideas That Changed The Way We Think offers a wealth of stimulation and amusement for everyone with a curious mind...Within the pages of this book you will find a wide variety of answers to the great, eternal questions: how was the universe created and what is the place of humans within it? How should a person live? And how can we build a just society? 1001 Ideas That Changed The Way We Think also includes a host of hypotheses that are remarkable for their sheer weirdness-from the concept of the transmigration of souls to parallel universes and the theoretical paradoxes of time travel (what happens if you travel back in time and kill your own grandfather?). Discover how the Greek philosopher Zeno 'proved' a flying arrow never moves; how modern science has shown that a butterfly's wing can stir up an Atlantic storm; and the mathematical proof of the existence of life in other galaxies. The inspirational ideas explored here range from Gandhi's theory of civil disobedience to Henry David Thoreau's praise of the simple life and Mary Wollstonecraft's groundbreaking advocacy of women's rights. The book also covers a wide variety of lifestyle concepts, such as 'rational dress' and naturism, and cultural movements including Neoclassicism, Surrealism and Postmodernism...Supported by a wealth of striking illustrations and illuminating quotations, 1001 Ideas That Changed The Way We Think is both an in-depth history of ideas and a delightfully browsable source of entertainment.

    106 IMPOSSIBLE THINGS BEFORE BREAKFAST
    KEYNOTE: Solving the insolvable – by your first cup of coffee! "Alice laughed. 'One can't believe impossible things.' "'I dare say you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen . . . 'Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'" -Lewis Carroll, Alice Through the Looking-Glass Could there be a knife that never dulls? A gun with no moving parts? A broken clock that tells time? Here, Dr. Michael Laufer and John Nolan reply, "Of course!" Through these conundrums, they show how to unleash the creative energies of the brain to solve even the knottiest enigmas. For instance, one could: •Reinterpret the problem •Change the rules •Change the solution Whether it's showering without water, driving a car without an engine, or using a computer without electricity, these are high-level challenges for breakout thinking. With this book, you'll stretch your minds and be primed to solve the next "impossible" problem before lunchtime. AUTHOR: Michael Laufer, PhD received his PhD in mathematics from the City University of New York Graduate Center, where he broke new ground in mathematical physics. John Nolan is employed by Personnel Decisions International, one of the world's leading global professional services consulting firms. He received a master's in industrial organizational psychology from New York University. SELLING POINTS • This unique collection of mental exercises focuses on solving “impossible” problems in order to sharpen original reasoning • Novel thinking is enhanced by challenging puzzles and problems (creativity-portal.com) • Studies have shown people are happier if they can be imaginative (lessig.com) and that successful people are creative problem-solvers (smartstorming.com) *

  • 13.8   QUEST TO FIND NEW AGE OF UNIVERSE & THEORY OF EVERYTHING
    13.8 QUEST TO FIND NEW AGE OF UNIVERSE & THEORY OF EVERYTHING
    The twentieth century gave us two great theories of physics. The general theory of relativity describes the behaviour of very large things; quantum theory the behaviour of very small things. In this landmark book, John Gribbin - one of the best-known writers of popular science over the past 30 years - presents his own version of the Holy Grail of physics, the search that has been going on for decades to find a unified 'Theory of Everything' that combines these ideas into one mathematical package, a single equation that could be printed on a T-shirt, containing the answer to life, the Universe and everything...With his inimitable mixture of science, history and biography, Gribbin shows how - despite scepticism among many physicists - these two great theories are indeed very compatible, and point to a deep truth about the nature of our existence. The answer lies, intriguingly, with the age of the Universe: 13.8 billion years.
