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.
A. S. Neill Bloomsbury Academic
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
A. S. Neill was probably the most famous school teacher of the twentieth century. His school, Summerhill, founded in 1921, attracted admiration and criticism from around the world, and became an emblem of radical school reform and child-centred education. Neill claimed that he was a practical man, but this book reveals that Summerhill expresses a comprehensive and distinctive set of ideas. Whether he wanted to be or not, Neill was an important educational thinker with a powerful influence on current educational approaches and philosophy. A. S. Neill is the first book to examine this philosophy of education in detail. It begins by showing how Neill's fascinating life story gives clues to the origin of his ideas, and why they mattered so much to him. It goes on to explore the main themes of his philosophy, showing how they relate to the work of other great educational thinkers, and how they are novel. It also discusses whether there are lessons that could and should be learned by other schools from the original, alternative 'free' school of Summerhill.
Jump Girl Leigh Hutton Books
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
SHOW JUMPING IS AN EXTREME SPORT WITH A DRESS CODE, ONE THIS GIRL DOESN'T FOLLOW . . . Imagine being dumped by your mother as a newborn and shifted between foster homes your entire childhood. Imagine being taken in and offered hope for your future by a kind, loving show jumping socialite. Imagine falling in love with some of the most gorgeous horses in the world, and making a life in the thrilling and glamorous sport of international show jumping. Now imagine it all being taken away. Ebony Scott Harris is painfully close to making her dreams a reality when the only mother she has ever known mysteriously dies. She's forced from their home to live with the gold-digging aunt, who takes her in only to ride the prized show jumpers she claims are now hers. Teetering on the edge of a hopeless depression, Ebony is saved by the discovery of a forgotten horse nearly starved to death, and an unlikely partnership with a handsome stranger, whom she must learn to trust if she is to uncover the truth about her mother's death and reclaim her home. But with the evil aunt selling her best and beloved horse, a maniacal ex-coach out for revenge and more savage competitors than she can count, Ebony has a lot more at stake than proving the truth, saving her horses and jumping for gold at the World Equestrian Games . . .

It's nice that there is a book that reveals the excitement of the sport while showing there can still be problems and a lot of times things won't go as planned!" #RealLifeJumpGirl, SHELBY EDWARDS "[Jump Girl] gives us a look into the fierce yet glamorous world that is Show Jumping, as well as; Love & Romance, Action & Adventure, Murder & Mystery, Redemption & Self Discovery, all woven together beautifully in this fast paced coming of age novel. I have been lucky enough to read Jump Girl before its release and let me say it is brilliant. Awesome job Leigh. It made me yearn to have a Monster or Gallant of my own. I immediately fell for Ebony. Her life felt so real and I was drawn into it heart first. I could not put the book down. I practically read it in one sitting... Five of five stars for Jump Girl." SARAH FAIRBAIRN, author and Goodreads reviewer 'Intriguing, fun, challenging, 'real', action packed. A fascinating, fast paced adventure that had me hooked . . . Hutton is an author to keep an eye on. Can't wait to see what she writes next.' CAROLYN MARTINEZ, author and editor 'I haven't had much experience with show jumping or horse riding, but by the time I finished the book I felt like I was there in front row seats to every show and experience Ebony had. What I enjoyed the most was the hope this book gives people. That no matter what happens in life if you persist and give what you love everything you can achieve so much. Ebony shows strength, determination, love, friendship, control . . . You must read. You will not be disappointed and by the end of the book you will feel like part of the story.'
