  • An intimate and inspirational exploration of Stephen Hawking--the man, the friend, and the physicist. One of the most influential physicists of our time, Stephen Hawking touched the lives of millions. Recalling his nearly two decades as Hawkings collaborator and friends, Leonard Mlodinow brings this complex man into focus in a unique and deeply personal portrayal. We meet Hawking the genius, who ours his mind into uncovering the mysteries of the universe--ultimately formulating a pathbreaking theory of black holes that reignites the discipline of cosmology and paves the way for physicists to investigate the origins of the universe in completely new ways. We meet Hawking the colleagues, a man whose illness leaves him able to communicate at only six words per minute but who expends the effort to punctuate his conversations with humor. And we meet Hawking the friend, who can convey volumes with a frown, a smile, or simply a raised eyebrow. Modinow puts us in the room as Hawking indulges his passion for wine and curry; shares his feelings on love, death, and disability; and grapples with deep questions of philosophy and physics. Whether depicting Hawkings devotion to his work or demonstrating how he would make spur of the moment choices, such as punting on the River Cam (despite the risk the jaunt to posed), or spinning tales of Hawking defiantly urinating in the hedges outside a restaurant that doesnt have a wheelchair accessible toilet, Mlodinow captures his indomitable spirit. This deeply affecting account of a friendship teaches us not just about the nature and practice of physics but also about life and the human capacity to overcome daunting obstacles.

  • "Chicken with Plums is a feast you'll devour." -- Newsweek Acclaimed graphic artist Marjane Satrapi brings what has become her signature humor and insight, her keen eye and ear, to the heartrending story of a celebrated Iranian musician who gives up his life for music and love. When Nasser Ali Khan, the author's great-uncle, discovers that his beloved instrument is irreparably damaged, he takes to his bed, renouncing the world and all its pleasures. Over the course of the week that follows, we are treated to vivid scenes of his encounters with family and friends, flashbacks to his childhood, and flash-forwards to his children's future. And as the pieces of his story fall into place, we begin to understand the breadth of his decision to let go of life. The poignant story of one man, it is also stunningly universal--a luminous tale of life and death, and the courage and passion both require of us.

  • CHRONICLES FROM THE LAND OF THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE ON EARTH - A NOVEL Nouv.

    B>b>A towering figure in world literature gives us a tour de force, his first novel in nearly one-half century: a savagely satiric, gleefully irreverent, rollicking, fictional meditation on how power and greed can corrupt the soul of a nation. (You dont see things the same way when you encounter a voice like that.--Toni Morrison)/b>/b>br>br>In an imaginary Nigeria, a cunning entrepreneur is selling body parts stolen from Dr. Menkas hospital for use in ritualistic practices. Dr. Menka shares the grisly news with his oldest college friend, bon viveur, star engineer, and Yoruba royal, Duyole Pitan-Payneb>--/b>the life of every partyb>-- /b>who is about to assume a prestigious post at the United Nations in New York. It now seems that someone is determined that he not make it there. Neither Dr. Menka nor Duyole knows why, or how close the enemy is, how powerful.br>; Chronicles from the Land of the Happiest People on Earth;is at once a literary hoot, a crafty whodunit, and a scathing indictment of Nigerias political elite. It is a stirring call to arms against the abuse of power from one of that countrys fiercest political activists, who just happens to be a global literary giant.br>;br>Soyinka is one of the best there is today.--Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

  • @00000327@A groundbreaking book about how ancient DNA has profoundly changed our understanding of human history.@00000133@@00000341@ @00000341@Geneticists like David Reich have made astounding advances in the field of genomics, which is proving to be as important as archeology, linguistics, and written records as a means to understand our ancestry. @00000341@ @00000341@In @00000373@Who We Are and How We Got Here@00000155@, Reich allows readers to discover how the human genome provides not only all the information a human embryo needs to develop but also the hidden story of our species. Reich delves into how the genomic revolution is transforming our understanding of modern humans and how DNA studies reveal deep inequalities among different populations, between the sexes, and among individuals. Provocatively, Reich@00000065@s book suggests that there might very well be biological differences among human populations but that these differences are unlikely to conform to common stereotypes.@00000341@ @00000341@Drawing upon revolutionary findings and unparalleled scientific studies, @00000373@Who We Are and How We Got Here@00000155@ is a captivating glimpse into humankind--where we came from and what that says about our lives today.
