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.

Cat's Cradle - Kurt Vonnegut

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - Cat?s Cradle, one of Vonnegut?s most entertaining novels, is filled with scientists and G-men and even ordinary folks caught up in the game. These assorted characters chase each other around in search of the world?s most important and dangerous substance, a new form of ice that freezes at room temperature. At one time, this novel could probably be found on the bookshelf of every college kid in America; it?s still a fabulous read and a great place to start if you?re young enough to have missed the first Vonnegut craze. Vonnegut has a way of helping his readers enter into this end-of-the-world story. Jonah, the first-person narrator, wants to write a book about the end of the world ? so naturally his topic is the inventor of the atomic bomb, Dr. Frank Hoenikker, and what the people surrounding him were doing on the day the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. It is his research that leads him to Hoenikker?s children, old acquaintances and, finally, on a journey that goes completely different than expected? The protagonist himself spoils parts of his story right at the beginning of the book, but I will do my best to keep the review spoilerfree. Personally, I didn?t even read the blurb, I just dug right into the book. Maybe that added to the wonder I felt washing over me on every page. Truth be told, I picked this as my second-chance-for-Vonnegut book because it is fairly slim (yes, I am ashamed of myself). The style is both simple and complicated. Vonnegut uses simple words and short, precise sentences to tell a story that folds back onto itself, that jumps back and forth in time and expects the reader to know things that are only revealed much later. I see how this may turn certain people off, for me it only added to the charm and the mystery of this novel. I like having to work my brain to figure out what?s going on. The revelations are just that much more satisfying. The many, very short chapters make for a nice reading experience and give you the illusion that you can stop after this chapter or that chapter ? only to find yourself continuing because it?s just that good.

Mendelssohn: Complete Piano Trios Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

The father of Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn eagerly facilitated their artistic upbringing. Felix's musical career took off from a young age and he was dubbed by Robert Schumann as 'the Mozart of the 19th century', while his similarly talented older sister was expected to keep music only as a hobby. This did not stop her from composing many pieces for playing in the home, some of which were later published under Felix's name. She is considered the most important female composer of the era.This collection brings together the Piano Trios of the siblings. Felix's unusually scored Trio for piano, violin and viola in C minor was written when he was just ten years old; beginning with a Baroque-style theme, its elfin motif, as featured later, is a clear pre-cursor to the music of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Op.49, which prefigures this work on the recording, dates from Felix's mature period and boasts a spectacular piano part, which the composer himself played at the premiere (the first movement has been referred to as a 'perfect synthesis of the mastery of Classical form with Romantic diction'); Op.66, meanwhile, is a passionate and exciting work -- his penultimate chamber piece and one that revisits elfin themes in the Scherzo, ending in a resplendent Bach-style chorale. The last work featured on the set, Fanny's Piano Trio contains a virtuosic piano part that begins with dramatic tremolos but later evolves into a calm, harp-like accompaniment, with a dance-like finale revisiting the second theme to provide a jubilant end to the collection.At the keyboard is Hrvoje Jugovic, who plays four different historical pianos throughout the recording. His fellow musicians are violinist Maria Bader-Kubizek, cellist Dorothea Schönwiese-Guschlbauer and violist Silvia Schweinberger.Other information:- New recording, recorded in 2009, Geinberg Hall Aigelsberg, Polling im Innkreis, Austria; 2010, Baroque Hall, Vorau Monastery, Austria.- An original concept: the works for piano trio by brother and sister Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn, performed on period instruments, featuring a range of no less than 4 historic fortepianos, a thrilling experience of these exciting piano trios!- The genius of Felix is universally recognised, the genius of Fanny however was kept under cover, since girls weren't supposed to become professional composers in her time. Too bad, as her piano trio is of great and substantial impact, both instrumental and emotional. Felix's piano trios are masterpieces in their genre, large scale and dramatic, glittering in instrumental virtuosity and brilliance, and vibrant with Felix's felicitous melodies.- Extensive liner notes, including information on the instruments used.

Determined to have the future she's always wanted, Josie decides to take matters into her own hands.§§On the outside, Meredith is the model daughter with the perfect life. A successful attorney, she's married to a wonderful man, and together they're raising a beautiful four-year-old daughter.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Four times since the breakout at Avranches Patton and his army had given Eisenhower opportunities which might well have proved decisive, shortened the war, saved thousands of lives and left the West in a better strategic posture than it would be more than a quarter of a century later. H. Essame's classic study of Patton in the "Military Commanders" series offers an outstanding description of his operational doctrine at all levels, from his own personal demeanor, the performance expected of his subordinates, the morale and discipline of his troops, to the actual tactics he used on the battlefield.Essame shows clearly how Patton's education and background enabled this cavalry officer to master the new battlefield conditions created by the tank and the airplane. Recognizing his lack of tact in dealing with allies and government leaders, Essame, who served in Europe as a brigade commander, nevertheless rates Patton as the greatest of all the Allied commanders.

Tall Buildings of China - 2826736236

Tall Buildings of China ANTIQUE COLLECTORS CLUB

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Featuring the tallest buildings and skyscrapers from China, the global economic powerhouse - spectacular designs from the world's most populous nation. Stunning full-colour photography throughout. This breathtaking new compilation showcases the latest tall buildings in China, including the cities of Beijing, Shanghai and emerging super-cities in the provinces. Georges Binder examines the best in contemporary design, the technology that makes them possible, and pairs them with beautiful imagery. Binder says "If Shanghai was already accommodating tall buildings in the 1930s with projects such as Bank of China and Broadway Mansion, both designed by Palmer and Turner, it was the 52-storey Connaught Centre in Hong Kong, now Jardine House, designed by P&T that put Asia on the worldwide skyscraper map in 1973. Architect John Portman created a milestone in 1990 when his mixed-use Shanghai Centre became the first major tall building in mainland China completed according to international standards. At that time, only two buildings in Hong Kong were part of the 100 world's tallest buildings list and none were located in mainland China.Twenty-five years later, when the 660-metre, 115-storey Ping An Finance Center in Shenzhen, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, becomes China's tallest and the world's second-tallest building in 2015, more than 40 of the 100 world's tallest buildings will be located in China and the country will have on its soil by far the highest number of supertall projects compared with any other country; a trend that is not expected to change soon. These skyscrapers are a fitting symbol of China's new-found prosperity, ambition and architectural flair."

Although only about 3 years have passed since the preparation of the original manuscript of this book for the Russian edition, the number of successful experiments on somatic hybridization of higher plants has doubled. Although the main inferences of the first edition still remain in force, most of them have received conclusive experimental support and, moreover, some new con clusions have been drawn. It can be expected that these inferences and conclusions will constitute a more or less durable foundation for somatic cell genetics of higher plants. We thus hope this book will also remain useful over the next years, in spite of the rapid progress of experiments and the increase in the number of scientific reports in this field. Though it might appear strange to an uninvolved observer, the principal progress in hybridization of somatic cells of higher plants has been due to plant physiologists (who entered the field by elaborating methods and techniques for plant cell and, later, for isolated protoplast culture) rather than plant geneticists. However, further qualitative improvement in this field is inconceivable without the instillation of genetic ideology and the strict logic of genetic experiments. The main purpose ofthis book is the attempt to organize the available experimental data in terms and cate gories of genetic analysis. For this reason, this book lays no claim on being a comprehensive treatise on somatic hybridization.

Faster and better armed than the Spitfire, the Whirlwind was the RAF's counter to a new generation of armoured German bombers which it expected to meet in English skies in 1940. A few months after its first flight 1,000 Whirlwinds were ordered, but nine months later the RAF cancelled the entire programme. Just 114 were built, but they went on to have a distinguished three-year career from the uneasy months after the Battle of Britain to their final sorties against Hitler's V-weapons sites in France. Based on fresh research, this new and overdue study throws new light on why the RAF had such high hopes for the Whirlwind, but was still prepared to cancel it, its designer's efforts to save the programme and, above all, the aircraft's operational record. Attacking railways, shipping, torpedo boats and airfields, often against fierce opposition, the Whirlwind squadrons flew with determination and style and saw themselves as a privileged elite within Fighter Command - the 'fewest of the few'.

Tomato in America University of Illinois Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From the Americas to Australasia, from northern Europe to southern Africa, the tomato tickles the world's taste buds. Americans along devour more than twelve million tons annually of this peculiar fruit, variously considered poisonous, curative, and aphrodisiacal. In this first concerted study of the tomato in America, Andrew F. Smith separates myth from historical fact, beginning with the Salem, New Jersey, man who, in 1820, allegedly attracted spectators from hundreds of miles to watch him eat a tomato on the courthouse steps (the legend says they expected to see him die a painful death). Later, hucksters such as Dr. John Cook Bennett and the Amazing Archibald Miles peddled the tomato's purported medicinal benefits. The competition was so fierce that the Tomato Pill War broke out in 1838. "The Tomato in America" traces the early cultivation of the tomato, its infiltration of American cooking practices, the early manufacture of preserved tomatoes and ketchup (soon hailed as "the national condiment of the United States"), and the "great tomato mania" of the 1820s and 1830s. The book also includes tomato recipes from the pre-Civil War period, covering everything from sauces, soups, and main dishes to desserts and sweets. Now available for the first time in paperback, "The Tomato in America" provides a piquant and entertaining look at a versatile and storied figure in culinary history.
