Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

The King: Chess Pieces

Szachy > Książki New In Chess

J.H.Donner  (1927-1988) was a Dutch Grandmaster and one of the greatest writers about chess of all time. He was a chess reporter and a chess columnist, as well as an annotator of the game. Above all he was a witty and unpredictable commentator of everything and everybody, both inside and outside the chess world.  THE KING  spans a writing career of more than thirty years during which Donner slowly developed from chess player-writer into writer-chess player. Donner's favourite themes are: Bobby Fischer, the blunder, chess as a game of luck, why women can't play chess, madness, and poor Lodewijk Prins, his rival for the Dutch National Championship for many years, who, according to Donner, "couldn't tell a bishop from a knight."  'THE KING' is a book full of insults and ironies, but Donner wouldn't be Donner without a considerable amount of self-mockery.  "After I resigned the last game with perfect self-control  and solemnly shook hands with my opponent in the best of Anglo-Saxon traditions, I rushed home where I threw myself onto my bed, howling and screaming, and pulled  the blankets over my face." Shortlisted English Chess Federation 2006 Book of the Year  The first unabridged English edition of this classic Lubosh Kavalek, The Washington Post: "[An] acclaimed masterpiece. The late Dutch Grandmaster was a brilliant, amusing, provoking and self-mocking author, a master of vertical hyperboles and shortcuts." Taylor Kingston, ChessCafe: "His reportorial style reminds one of the 'gonzo journalism' of Hunter S.Thompson fame, and his polemics are reminiscent of such great scourges of hypocrisy as H.L.Mencken (...) If you do not buy this book, and you later realize just how good it really is, and what a treasure you have missed, you will feel depressed, and deservedly so." Raymond Keene, chess columnist of The Times (London): "Absolutely wonderful." Harry Mulisch, author of 'The Discovery of Heaven': "This book is about chess only in appearance, and I hope that no one will allow himself to be scared off by the diagrams and the annotations. It is in fact a magnificent self-portrait of Hein Donner, the player, the equally fearless and hilarious provocateur, who, when the chips are down, will always be found on the right side." Bob Long, Chessco: "Totally absorbing. Any insightful person should have this book." Paul Motwani, The Scotsman: "An irresistible gem of a book, that weighs in at 390 pages, yet never looses the seemingly magical lightness of its text." John Saunders, British Chess Magazine: "A work that all chess players should own. It would probably be my only 'desert island' chess book." Malcolm Pein, chess columnist of The Daily Telegraph: "Donner was the wittiest, most irreverent writer of his generation. The book is a triumph." John Donaldson, Inside Chess Magazine: "Donner was witty, opinionated and often cranky, but he was always fun to read - assuming of course you weren't the object of one of his attacks." Sarah Hurst, Chess Moves: "The most outrageous chess book money can buy." Jeremy Silman, author of 'How to Reassess Your Chess': "Far and away the finest chess writing ever seen (...) Trust me, you don't want to be without this book." Tim Krabbé, author of 'The Vanishing': "Eminently readable for chess players and non-chess players alike." Mike Fox and Richard Jame s, Chess Magazine: "A magnificent portrait of a remarkable man, as well as one of the funniest chess books ever written." GM Peter Svidler, four-times chess champion of Russia: "I felt I deserved a little present and bought myself 'The King'. It is every bit as good as it is said to be." Mark Donlan, Chess Horizons: "One of the few chess books that made me laugh aloud. It is the only chess book that ever similarly amused my wife (...) This is THE BOOK to put on your Christmas or birthday wish list." Rick Kennedy, ChessVille: "A perfect gift for a chess-friend who likes a good tale told with verve and a fresh perspective. Do pick up a couple of copies, though - if you peek inside you might not want to let go of the first one!" Fred Waitzkin, author of 'Searching for Bobby Fischer': "The book has blown me away.

The Death of Death Springer, Berlin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Is death inevitable? Until now, the history of mankind has been marked by this fatal fact. Religions, borders and progress are born from an ancient fear of death, comfort from this fear man often found only in religious paradigms. But according to José Luis Cordeiro and David Wood, the incontrovertible fact of death is no longer an absolute certainty - science and technology are preparing to tear down the final frontier: that of immortality.This accessible book provides insight into recent exponential advances in artificial intelligence, tissue regeneration, stem cell treatment, organ printing, cryopreservation, and genetic therapies that, for the first time in human history, offer a realistic chance to solve the problem of the aging of the human body. In this book, Cordeiro and Wood not only present all the major developments, initiatives, and ideas for eternal life, they also show why there are a number of good arguments for seeing death for what it is: the last undefeated disease.Enter any drugstore or bookstore, and we confronted with a mountain of nonsense concerning the aging process. Society seems obsessed with aging. That is why The Death of Death is such a refreshing delight, able to cut through the hype and reveal a balanced, authoritative, and lucid discussion of this controversial topic. It summarizes the astonishing breakthroughs made recently in revealing how science may one day conquer the aging process.Michio Kaku, theoretical physicist and author of The God Equation: The Quest for a Theory of Everything We are entering a Fantastic Voyage into life extension, crossing different bridges that will take us to indefinite life spans. The Death of Death explains clearly how we might soon reach longevity escape velocity and live long enough to live forever. Ray Kurzweil, co-author of Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever and co-founder of Singularity UniversityThe Death of Death is a truly revolutionary book. This is a visionary book that confronts us with the terrible reality of aging, and its authors are friends and connoisseurs of the subject. I believe that the authoritative and exhaustive description of this crusade that José and David make in this excellent book will accelerate this process. Forward! Aubrey de Grey, founder of LEV (Longevity Escape Velocity) Foundation and co-author of Ending Aging

Bertrand Meyer - Agile! Springer International Publishing AG

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Are you attracted by the promises of agile methods but put off by the adoring tone and fanaticism of so many of the agile texts? Would you like to know which agile techniques work, which ones will not matter much, and which ones will actually harm your projects? Then you need Bertrand Meyer s Agile! : the first exhaustive, unbiased review of agile principles, techniques and tools.§Agile methods are clearly one of the most important developments in software over the past decades, but they are a surprising mix of the best and the worst. Until now every project and every developer had to sift by themselves through the ideas and sort out the gems from the gravel. This book, the result of an immersion of several years in the practice of agile development and the agile literature, spares you the pain. It offers both a thorough descriptive presentation of agile techniques and a perceptive, no-nonsense analysis of their benefits and limitations, by one of the top names in software engineering.§The first achievement of Meyer s book is to serve as a primer on agile development : one chapter each introduces agile principles, roles, managerial practices, technical practices and artifacts. This concise yet complete review will enable you to master all the important agile ideas. A separate chapter analyzes the four major agile methods: Extreme Programming, Lean Software, Scrum and Crystal.§The accompanying critical analysis explains what you should retain and discard from agile ideas. It is based on Meyer s thorough knowledge of the methods, principles and literature of software engineering, and his extensive personal experience of programming and project management. He fearlessly calls the agile proponents bluff by debunking the hyped and unsound ideas, and highlights the truly brilliant contributions even those to which their own authors do not do full justice. §Three important chapters precede the core discussion of agile ideas: an extended overview, serving as a concentrate of the entire book; a dissection of the intellectual devices used by agile authors to convey their arguments; and a measured review of the classical software engineering techniques, such as requirements analysis and lifecycle models, which agile methods love to criticize. The final chapters describe the precautions that a company should take during a transition to agile development, and present the overall assessment of agile ideas, with a carefully defined list of the ugly, the hyped, the good and the truly brilliant. §This is the first book to discuss agile methods, beyond the brouhaha, in the general context of modern software engineering. It is a key resource for projects that want to combine the best of established results and agile innovations.§

The Child's Child is the new crime novel by bestselling, prize-winning author Barbara Vine. What sort of betrayal would drive a brother and sister apart? When Grace and her brother Andrew inherit their grandmother's house in Hampstead, they decide to move in together. It seems the obvious thing to do: they've always got on well, the house is large enough to split down the middle, and neither of them likes partying or loud music. There's one thing they've forgotten though: what if one of them wants to bring a lover into the house? When Andrew's partner James moves in, it alters the balance - with almost fatal consequences. Barbara Vine's is the pen-name of Ruth Rendell, and The Child's Child is the first book she has published under that name since The Birthday Present in 2008. It's an intriguing examination of betrayal in families, and of those two once-unmentionable subjects, illegitimacy and homosexuality. A taut, thrilling read, it will be enjoyed by readers of P.D. James and Ian Rankin. "Cracking stuff. The Vine continues to flourish...(A) miracle of storytelling with her customary aplomb and cool composure". (Express on The Child's Child)."The Rendell/Vine partnership has for years been producing consistently better work than most Booker winners put together". (Ian Rankin). Ruth rendall has published fourteen novels under the Vine name, two of which, Fatal Inversion and King Solomon's Carpet, won the prestigious Crime Writers' Association Gold Dagger Award. Also available in Penguin by Barbara Vine: The Minotaur, The Blood Doctor, Grasshopper, The Chimney Sweeper's Boy, The Brimstone Wedding, No Night is Too Long, Asta's Book, King Solomon's Carpet, Gallowglass, The House of Stairs, A Dark-Adapted Eye.

But Clodagh soon learns that you can never entirely escape your past.

Reporter: "What's it like to be Bob Hope?"Hope: "I wouldn't have it any other way."From Bob Hope's early career as an upstart among professionals like Jack Benny and Milton Berle in the rollicking world of traveling comedians, to his blazing success as a radio, television, and film star, this completely revised and updated version of William Faith's acclaimed biography takes a straightforward, appreciative, and very funny look at Hope's life and times on the occasion of his 100th birthday. Filled with anecdotes, photographs, and plenty of jokes, the book reveals the real Bob Hope from his boyhood in England and youth in Cleveland to his present status as a living legend-a full-blooded, authentic appraisal of the man and his humor, a comic institution who is also a brilliant businessman, manipulator of the media, and politically influential figure. And of course Hope is the man who brought laughter and cheer (and long-legged beauties) to GIs throughout the world.At a time when patriotic fervor has never been running higher it's worth recalling the singular tribute paid Hope by none other than John Steinbeck: "When the time for recognition of service to the nation in wartime comes to be considered, Bob Hope should be high on the list...He gets laughter wherever he goes from men who need laughter." Happy 100th, Bob!
