Consolations of Philosophy Penguin
Alain de Botton, best-selling author of How Proust can Change Your Life, has set six of the finest minds in the history of philosophy to work on the problems of everyday life. Here then are Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche on some of the things that bother us all; lack of money, the pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety, the fear of failure and the pressure to conform.

Powieści i opowiadania
'When people ask me what I do for a crust and I tell them that I'm a novelist, they immediately assume that my life is a non-stop carousel of limos, television appearances, hair-dos, devoted fans, stalkers and all the glitzy paraphernalia of being a public figure. It's time to set the record straight. I write alone, in a darkened bedroom, wearing my PJs, eating bananas, my laptop on a pillow in front of me ...'

This Is Not a Writing Manual WRITER´S DIGEST
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
"This nonmanual is a highly readable memoir stuffed with tips and information about the myriad aspects of pursuing a writing career by one who has carved a niche for herself in that world, namely with YARN (Young Adult Review Network). Majors hasn't had her breakthrough--she's not a Stephen King or Stephenie Meyer--but she's proof that there is a place in the writing world for those who aren't superstars. She is friendly, savvy, hip, easy to identify with, and definitely in touch with her teenage writer-self." - Booklist "Essentially a memoir, the volume is earnest and practical in tone, covering every angle of writing, from buying a planner and revising to finding an audience and learning from mistakes. More philosophical concerns include what to do for a living before hitting the big time, deciding whether writing is a hobby or a job, and dealing with hating friends who find success before you do. Finally, for those committed to publishing, helpful advice is offered on dealing with agents, editors and publishers, discovering the right journals and finding inspiration. The best advice of all is to write for pleasure, even if the ultimate goal is publication. Clearly, Majors knows what she's talking about, and readers will recognize they're getting advice from someone who knows.... An upbeat and honest guide for teens already considering writing careers." - Kirkus Reviews "Candid, honest advice and reflection from a writer who's been there. - Publisher's Weekly "I wish this book existed when I was starting out! Filled with personal stories, inspiration, and practical creative advice, Kerri's book is a must for young writers everywhere." - Allen Zadoff, author of Boy Nobody, My Life Since You Left Me, and Food, Girls, and Other Things I Can't Have "This Is Not a Writing Manual is a personal book in the best sense of the word. Kerri Majors's advice is hard won. It comes from her own joys and disappointments, her hopes and unwavering dedication to writing. The book, as the title says, will not teach you how to write. What the book will do is take you, like a trusted friend, through some of the decisions you will need to make in order to be a writer. Its practical and heartfelt wisdom will prepare you for the challenges and fulfillments of the writing life." - Francisco X. Stork, author of Irises and Marcelo in the Real World, noted as a Best Book by the Washington Post and many others "A personal and invigorating memoir of the creative life, This Is Not a Writing Manual offers wisdom, camaraderie, and inspiration for newbies and veterans alike. - John Cusick is an agent at Greenhouse Literary, the managing fiction editor at Armchair/Shotgun, and the author of Girl Parts and Cherry Money Baby "When I was a writing teacher, I met many talented, passionate young writers who wondered how to move forward. I sincerely wish I'd had Kerri Majors's This is Not a Writing Manual to help them. Never prescriptive, always honest, this book is a genuine resource that grapples with the real work of writing--finding courage, finding time, and finding a way. - Blythe Woolston, author of Black Helicopters and The Freak Observer, a William C. Morris Debut Award winner
Using & Understanding Mathematics a Quantitative Reasoning Addison Wesley Publishing Company
With all of the topics needed to fulfill a general education requirement, this text, one of the few for the emerging Quantitative Literacy/Quantitative Reasoning Course, helps to reduce mathematical anxiety and focuses on the practicality of mathematics in college, career, and life.Time Out to Think. Appearing throughout the book, the Time Out to Think features pose short conceptual questions designed to help students reflect on important new ideas. They also serve as excellent starting points for classroom discussions. Margin Features. This book includes a wide margin so that students have room to make notes while studying. The margin also contains material that should spur student interest but is peripheral to the main discussion. This material comes in three basic forms: - By the Way features contain interesting notes and asides relevant to the topic at hand.- Historical Note remarks give historical context to the ideas presented in the chapter.- Technical Notes contain details that are important mathematically, but generally do not affect students' understanding of the material. A Brief Review. These boxed features review key mathematical skills that students should have learned previously, but in which many students still need review and practice. They appear in the book wherever a particular skill is first needed, and exercises based on the review boxes can be found at the end of the unit. Practical Matters. These boxed features focus on topics of particularly high practical importance, such as how to watch out for bad deals on telephone service, how to avoid credit card trouble, and how to save money and energy at the same time. Thinking About. These boxed features build upon ideas in the main narrative but go somewhat beyond the level of other material in the book. Examples include boxes on the proof of the Pythagorean theorem and on Zeno's paradox. Basic Skills and Concepts. These questions offer practice with the concepts covered in the unit. The exercises can be used for homework assignments or for self-study (answers to most odd-numbered exercises appear in the back of the book). Web Projects. The Web Projects require searching for data or other information on the Web. They can be used for extended projects, discussion, group activities, or essays. In the News. These questions ask students to find examples from the news or from daily life of the ideas presented in the unit. These questions may be assigned as homework or used for class discussions.
