Book Excerpt :

I should have known better than to flirt with a hot cop. Jack In my world as a police officer, things were either black or white. Right or wrong. Then Bailey arrived, challenging all my principles. She had a mouth on her, the level of sass matching the exaggerated swing of her hips. I couldn't get her out of my head, even knowing she wasn't right for me. I tried to stay away, I really did. But once I had a taste, I kept coming back for more. Something didn't add up though, and I would figure it out even if it ultimately meant we couldn't be together. Bailey The only thing sexier than his dimple was the set of handcuffs the hottie detective threatened to use on me. If only he'd give me a chance to show him I was more than the tough-girl exterior I'd carefully crafted over the years. Oh yeah, and if I wasn't engaged in criminal activity that would land me in handcuffs...and not in a sexy way. More like an orange jumpsuit way, and I can tell you now, no way in hell would I be caught dead in an ugly jumpsuit. No matter which way this thing ends, I'll be in handcuffs. The question is, will Jack join me in the grey area? Or will I have to do the impossible and admit I was wrong? Handcuffed Hussy is a companion novella in a series of small town romance novels with more than a splash of humor from a USA Today Bestselling author. If you like strong, sassy heroines, witty banter, and happily ever afters set at the beach, then you’ll love Marika Ray’s Beach Squad series.

Book Short Summary:

From the “always fabulous Lauren Dane”* comes her new novel of a treacherous family legacy, a temptation just as dangerous, and an evil so depraved it can only be spoken of in whispers… The life of Lark Jaansen, hunter in Clan Gennessee, has been shaped by violence and unrest—and it defines her future. Well-trained and resilient, she’s met her militaristic match in Simon Leviathan, a warrior not of this world. Locked in mutual admiration, and a desire so hot it burns, Lark and Simon have something else in common: they love the dark, and as a shadow is cast over their world, they’re each coming into their own. A mysterious war has been waged among the Others. As witches and humans turn against each other, as faes retreat in fear, and as vampires rise, Lark and Simon discover that an unseen force is behind it. A single, hungry entity older than recorded history has returned to gorge on the magick of his victims. He is the Magister, nothing less than the end of time. Finding him is Lark and Simon’s first hope. Surviving him is their last. *Lara Adrian

Book Short Summary:

Was macht die Faszination der Jagd nach dem Puck aus? Wovon träumt ein junger Eishockeycrack? Warum sind Eishockeyspieler abergläubisch wie Betschwestern, hören besser auf ihre Frauen und können mit dem Teufel im Bunde sein? Warum werfen Fans Gummihühner, Tintenfische oder Plastikratten aufs Eis? Was hat es mit dem Salary Cap auf sich? Wie vertreibt sich der Fan die lange Sommerpause? Warum tragen manche Spieler nur bestimmte Rückennummern, goldene Helme oder werden mit einer Vielzahl kurioser Auszeichnungen belobigt? Im vorliegenden Buch werden diese und viele weitere Fragen in rund 100 Kapiteln auf amüsante Art und Weise beantwortet. Frank Bröker nimmt uns mit auf eine spannende Reise durch das Spektakel der packenden Welt des Eishockeys, singt mit uns gemeinsam in den DEL-Arenen, springt aus den deutschen Ligen über den Teich nach Übersee, wo das Spiel vor über 100 Jahren Wurzeln schlug, der Hype um die NHL bis heute keine Grenzen kennt und wo Legenden wie Gordie Howe, Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky heiliggesprochen wurden.

Ohne "Emile" keine Pädagogik: Rousseaus bahnbrechender Roman von 1762 trat früh für die Kindheit als einen eigenen Wert, für das direkte, erfahrungsgesättigte Lernen am Objekt sowie für eine natürliche, nicht an Kirchen gebundene Religion ein. Zurück zur Natur – weg von der Zivilisation, das ist die Devise: "Alles, was aus den Händen des Schöpfers kommt, ist gut; alles entartet unter den Händen des Menschen". Die eingeführte Standardübersetzung wird hier neu kommentiert und mit einem neuen Nachwort herausgegeben.

Book Short Summary:

Auch wenn vielerorts der Glanz des Goldes schon verblasst ist: Die barocken Bauten der Jesuiten lassen bis heute erahnen, welchen Eindruck diese auf den Menschen der Gegenreformation gemacht haben müssen. Der Jesuitenorden setzte sie als gezieltes Mittel der Gegenreformation ein und überließ kein Detail dem Zufall. Für jeden Neubau gab es ein striktes Baugenehmigungsverfahren. Neben dem Bau repräsentativer Residenzen erfuhr im 17. Jahrhundert auch der Kirchen- und Klosterbau einen enormen Aufschwung, wobei der Theorie der Disziplinierung des Menschen eine entscheidende Bedeutung zukam. So konnte die katholische Kirche in den von der Gegenreformation erfassten Ländern den einzelnen Untertan direkt erreichen - eine Möglichkeit, welche die Landesherren oft nicht hatten. Anton Fleckl stellt nicht nur den Ablauf der Bauprozesse im Detail dar, sondern publiziert auch erstmals alle erhaltenen Planzeichnungen der österreichischen Ordensniederlassung aus der Bibliothèque Nationale de Paris. Die im Pariser Archiv vorhandenen Pläne werden mit den erhaltenen Gebäuden der Jesuiten verglichen und beschrieben. Ein wissenschaftstheoretischer Teil über die Begrifflichkeiten des konfessionellen Zeitalters sowie ein Überblick über ausgewählte Architekturtrakte und Theorien der Barockzeit vervollständigen dieses Buch.

Book Short Summary:

Ihre erste Geige war aus Pappe, ausgeschnitten aus einer Cornflakesschachtel und mit einer einfachen Papprolle zusammengeklebt. Schon als Kind liebte Lindsey Stirling die Musik. Doch das Leben der inzwischen weltberühmten Violinistin und Choreografiekünstlerin war nicht immer einfach. In dieser Autobiografie führt Sie Lindsey Stirling durch ihre eigenwillige Musikkarriere: von den ersten Geigenstunden und kleinen Auftritten bis zu ihrem Durchbruch auf YouTube und der ausverkauften Welttournee. Mit unverwechselbarem Humor erzählt sie ganz offen von kleinen und großen Rückschlägen, die ihren Weg an die Spitze geprägt haben.

Private Fotos geben zudem einen ganz persönlichen Einblick in das Leben der amerikanischen Violinistin. Dieses Buch ist nicht nur die Geschichte einer einzigartigen und erfolgreichen Karriere, sondern auch ein Musterbeispiel für unerschütterliches Durchhaltevermögen und eine erfolgreiche Selbstfindung.

Er war 25 Jahre lang Journalist, dann stand er von einem Tag auf den anderen auf der Straße: Dan Lyons wurde mit 52 Jahren einfach aus dem Team wegrationalisiert. Was also tun? Da kam das Jobangebot von HubSpot, einem Bostoner Start-up, genau richtig: Sie bieten dem altgedienten Journalisten einen Stapel Aktien für den nicht näher bestimmten Job des »Marketingtypen«. Was soll da schon schiefgehen? Doch es kommt, wie es bei der Konstellation kommen muss: Schnell wird klar, dass bei seinem Job bei HubSpot ungefähr alles schiefläuft, was schieflaufen kann. Seine Kollegen sind im Schnitt halb so alt, statt Bürostühlen gibt es Sitzbälle, Spam wird als »liebenswerter Marketingcontent« bezeichnet und überhaupt erinnert die Atmosphäre bei HubSpot eher an einen immerwährenden Kindergeburtstag. Dass das nicht lange gutgehen kann, ist vorprogrammiert ... Dieses Buch bietet einzigartige Einblicke in die Start-up-Welt!

  • Pdf File: slang.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Slang, writes Michael Adams, is poetry on the down low, and sometimes lowdown poetry on the down low, but rarely, if ever, merely lowdown. It is the poetry of everyday speech, the people's poetry, and it deserves attention as language playing on the cusp of art. In Slang: The People's Poetry, Adams covers this perennially interesting subject in a serious but highly engaging way, illuminating the fundamental question "What is Slang" and defending slang--and all forms of nonstandard English--as integral parts of the American language. Why is an expression like "bed head" lost in a lexical limbo, found neither in slang nor standard dictionaries? Why are snow-boarding terms such as "fakie," "goofy foot," "ollie" and "nollie" not considered slang? As he addresses these and other lexical curiosities, Adams reveals that slang is used in part to define groups, distinguishing those who are "down with it" from those who are "out of it." Slang is also a rebellion against the mainstream. It often irritates those who color within the lines--indeed, slang is meant to irritate, sometimes even to shock. But slang is also inventive language, both fun to make and fun to use. Rather than complain about slang as "bad" language, Adams urges us to celebrate slang's playful resistance to the commonplace and to see it as the expression of an innate human capacity, not only for language, but for poetry.

Book Short Summary:

Der Band dokumentiert die Verfolgung der Juden und ihre Lage in den mit NS-Deutschland verbündeten Ländern Slowakei, Rumänien und Bulgarien. Die jüdische Bevölkerung war hier bereits vor dem Zweiten Weltkrieg einer antijüdischen Legislative ausgesetzt, ihre Verfolgung verschärfte sich jedoch seit 1939. Infolge deutscher Einflussnahme lieferten die Slowakei und Bulgarien sogar Teile ihrer jüdischen Bevölkerung an NS-Deutschland aus und gaben sie der Ermordung preis. In Rumänien kam es vor allem in den besetzten Gebieten zu Massakern durch die rumänische Armee. Indigener Antisemitismus spielte hierbei ebenso eine Rolle wie die Aussicht auf die Konfiskation jüdischen Eigentums. Im Laufe des Krieges veränderten die drei Staaten jedoch ihre „Judenpolitik“: In der Slowakei wurden die Deportationen erst nach den Einmarsch der Wehrmacht 1944 wieder aufgenommen, Rumänien förderte zum Kriegsende sogar die Auswanderung, und Bulgarien schied aus der Gruppe der „Achsenmächte“ aus. Entscheidend für die Lage der Juden und für die Möglichkeiten der Gegenwehr war nicht nur die wechselhafte Kooperation der Staaten mit NS-Deutschland, sondern auch die Kollaboration der Einheimischen und die eigene Verfolgungspolitik der drei Länder.

Book Short Summary:

Joyce Sparks has lived the whole of her 86 years in the small community of Balsden, Ontario. As a girl, Joyce allowed herself to imagine a future of adventure in the arms of her friend Freddy Pender, whose chin bore a Kirk Douglas cleft and who danced the cha-cha divinely. Though troubled by the whispered assertions of her sister and friends that he wasn't 'normal,' Joyce adored Freddy for all that was un-Balsden in his flamboyant ways. When Freddy led the homecoming parade down the main street, his expertly twirled baton and outrageous white suit gleaming in the sun, Joyce fell head over heels in unrequited love. Years later, Joyce married Charlie, who was nothing like Freddy, and bore a son who very much reminded her of Freddy. Tragic news of her childhood love arrived and Joyce was forced to face how far she should to go to protect the fate and life of her son and the implications her decision had. Today, as her life ebbs away in the bed at Chestnut Park Nursing Home, Joyce ponders the terrible choices she made as a mother and wife and doubts that she can be forgiven, or that she deserves to be. When a young nursing home volunteer named Timothy appears, so much like her long lost son, Joyce wonders if there be some grace in her life after all. Voiced by an unforgettable and heartbreakingly flawed narrator, Natural Order is a masterpiece of empathy, a wry and tender depiction of the end-of-life remembrances and reconciliations that one might undertake when there is nothing more to lose, and no time to waste.

Book Short Summary:

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE, STARRING JASON SEGAL AND JESSE EISENBERG, DIRECTED BY JAMES PONSOLDT An indelible portrait of David Foster Wallace, by turns funny and inspiring, based on a five-day trip with award-winning writer David Lipsky during Wallace’s Infinite Jest tour In David Lipsky’s view, David Foster Wallace was the best young writer in America. Wallace’s pieces for Harper’s magazine in the ’90s were, according to Lipsky, “like hearing for the first time the brain voice of everybody I knew: Here was how we all talked, experienced, thought. It was like smelling the damp in the air, seeing the first flash from a storm a mile away. You knew something gigantic was coming.” Then Rolling Stone sent Lipsky to join Wallace on the last leg of his book tour for Infinite Jest, the novel that made him internationally famous. They lose to each other at chess. They get iced-in at an airport. They dash to Chicago to catch a make-up flight. They endure a terrible reader’s escort in Minneapolis. Wallace does a reading, a signing, an NPR appearance. Wallace gives in and imbibes titanic amounts of hotel television (what he calls an “orgy of spectation”). They fly back to Illinois, drive home, walk Wallace’s dogs. Amid these everyday events, Wallace tells Lipsky remarkable things—everything he can about his life, how he feels, what he thinks, what terrifies and fascinates and confounds him—in the writing voice Lipsky had come to love. Lipsky took notes, stopped envying him, and came to feel about him—that grateful, awake feeling—the same way he felt about Infinite Jest. Then Lipsky heads to the airport, and Wallace goes to a dance at a Baptist church. A biography in five days, Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself is David Foster Wallace as few experienced this great American writer. Told in his own words, here is Wallace’s own story, and his astonishing, humane, alert way of looking at the world; here are stories of being a young writer—of being young generally—trying to knit together your ideas of who you should be and who other people expect you to be, and of being young in March of 1996. And of what it was like to be with and—as he tells it—what it was like to become David Foster Wallace. "If you can think of times in your life that you’ve treated people with extraordinary decency and love, and pure uninterested concern, just because they were valuable as human beings. The ability to do that with ourselves. To treat ourselves the way we would treat a really good, precious friend. Or a tiny child of ours that we absolutely loved more than life itself. And I think it’s probably possible to achieve that. I think part of the job we’re here for is to learn how to do it. I know that sounds a little pious." —David Foster Wallace

Book Short Summary:

At the foot of the Elwha River, the muddy outpost of Port Bonita is about to boom, fueled by a ragtag band of dizzyingly disparate men and women unified only in their visions of a more prosperous future. A failed accountant by the name of Ethan Thornburgh has just arrived in Port Bonita to reclaim the woman he loves and start a family. Ethans obsession with a brighter future impels the damming of the mighty Elwha to harness its power and put Port Bonita on the map. More than a century later, his great-great grandson, a middle manager at a failing fish- packing plant, is destined to oversee the undoing of that vision, as the great Thornburgh dam is marked for demolition, having blocked the very lifeline that could have sustained the town. West of Here is a grand and playful odyssey, a multilayered saga of destiny and greed, adventure and passion, that chronicles the life of one small town, turning Americas history into myth, and myth into a nations shared experience.

Book Short Summary:

One brief mistake. A world of hurt. No panties. No problem. At least until I slip on the wet floor and go heels over head in front of my colleagues and half the courthouse. Returning to consciousness can't be more awkward, until I find out who my sexy, argumentative, and bossy knight in shining armor really is. My career may not survive my beaver blunder, and my heart might not survive Owen Grant. Madeline Ryan tumbles into my life on a wave of perfume and public embarrassment. She falls and exposes herself in front of me, and I find myself falling for her despite the fact she fights me every chance she gets. Being a woman in a good ol’ boy profession demands a certain brashness, but it definitely has me thinking, maybe litigators shouldn't be lovers. With stressful jobs and big attitudes, going commando has never been so freeing.

Book Short Summary:

One of the truly great writers of the century reaches beyond the very top of his game in this uncannily timely knockout of a novel. In quality and compelling scope, this is Rushdie's The Godfather meets The Great Gatsby--an unparalleled modern-day American thriller, with wonderful, moving characters and a grippingly entertaining story straight out of today's headlines, set against the panorama of American culture and politics from the inauguration of Obama to post-election Trump. When powerful real-estate tycoon Nero Golden immigrates to the States under mysterious circumstances, he and his three adult children assume new identities, reinventing themselves as emperors living in a lavish house in downtown Manhattan. Arriving shortly after the inauguration of Barack Obama, he and his sons, each extraordinary in his own right, quickly establish themselves at the apex of New York society, even as Nero Golden continues to raise huge buildings carrying his name in gold letters. The story of the powerful Golden family is told from the point of view of their Manhattanite neighbour and confidant, René, an aspiring filmmaker who finds in the Goldens the perfect subject. René chronicles the undoing of the house of Golden: the high life of money, of art and fashion, a sibling quarrel, an unexpected metamorphosis, the arrival of a beautiful former model, betrayal and murder, and far away, in their abandoned homeland, some decent intelligence work that could ruin Nero Golden forever. Invoking literature, pop culture and the cinema, Rushdie spins the story of the American zeitgeist over the last eight years, hitting every beat: the rise of the birther movement, the Tea Party, and identity politics; Gamergate; the backlash against political correctness; the ascendancy of Superman and Batwoman and the superhero movie; and, of course, the insurgence of a ruthlessly ambitious, narcissistic villain with painted skin and coloured hair.

Book Short Summary:

This atlas instills a solid knowledge of anatomy by correlating thin-section brain anatomy with corresponding clinical magnetic resonance images in axial, coronal, and sagittal planes. The authors correlate advanced neuromelanin imaging, susceptibility-weighted imaging, and diffusion tensor tractography with clinical 3 and 4 T MRI. Each brain stem region is then analyzed with 9.4 T MRI to show the anatomy of the medulla, pons, midbrain, and portions of the diencephalonin with an in-plane resolution comparable to myelin- and Nissl-stained light microscopy. The book’s carefully organized diagrams and images teach with a minimum of text.

Book Short Summary:

This book focuses on the first vertebrates to conquer land and their long journey to become fully independent from the water. It traces the origin of tetrapod features and tries to explain how and why they transformed into organs that permit life on land. Although the major frame of the topic lies in the past 370 million years and necessarily deals with many fossils, it is far from restricted to paleontology. The aim is to achieve a comprehensive picture of amphibian evolution. It focuses on major questions in current paleobiology: how diverse were the early tetrapods? In which environments did they live, and how did they come to be preserved? What do we know about the soft body of extinct amphibians, and what does that tell us about the evolution of crucial organs during the transition to land? How did early amphibians develop and grow, and which were the major factors of their evolution? The Topics in Paleobiology Series is published in collaboration with the Palaeontological Association, and is edited by Professor Mike Benton, University of Bristol. Books in the series provide a summary of the current state of knowledge, a trusted route into the primary literature, and will act as pointers for future directions for research. As well as volumes on individual groups, the series will also deal with topics that have a cross-cutting relevance, such as the evolution of significant ecosystems, particular key times and events in the history of life, climate change, and the application of a new techniques such as molecular palaeontology. The books are written by leading international experts and will be pitched at a level suitable for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates, and researchers in both the paleontological and biological sciences.
