100 Ways to Save the World Hardcover – Illustrated by Johan Tell (Author), Bill McKibben (Foreword)

This work outlines what individuals can do in their day-to-day lives to make a positive difference on the environment. Beautiful full-colour photos complement the easy-to-implement ideas.

We are bombarded with negative information about all the ways from global warming to lacing fish with mercury that humanity is destroying the planet. In contrast, 100 Ways to Save the World outlines what each one of us can do in our day-to-day lives to make a positive difference on the environment. Easy-to-implement tips cover everything from housecleaning to investing. For example, you can have an impact with what you wear and what you eat. The book includes environmentally-friendly shopping strategies ranging from boycotting pirated products to buying fewer but better quality clothes (and then tells how best to wash them). Written in a clear and approachable voice and illustrated with beautiful full-colour photos, these fresh practical ideas will inspire and resound with readers.

This book gives 100 simple, concrete tips to help you and your family save energy, cut pollution and build a more sustainable future. By focussing on opportunities and solutions rather than finger pointing and blame, 100 Ways to Save the World shows how everyone shares in the environmental legacy we leave to coming generations.
Johan Tell writes in accessible and inspiring prose about difficult issues, introducing the sometimes complex trade-offs of a greener lifestyle in terminology that anyone can take to heart and understand. An editorial advisory board comprised of three professors in environmental fields helped to guarantee reliability.
Possibly Sweden’s best-selling environmental book, 100 Ways to Save the World has been published in the UK, Norway, Finland, Denmark and the United States.
This is a beautiful and well-made book bound in genuine linen. Production methods, paper, binding and even printing ink have been chosen to minimize environmental impacts.

Learn How to Play the Guitar - a step-by-step guide with more than 200 Photographs by Nick Freeth

Have you ever dreamed of being able to pick up a guitar and perform before an adoring crowd captivated by your talent, whether it be in the supercharged atmosphere of a rock concert or the moody ambience of a blues or jazz club? Guitar heroes are the stuff of modern musical legend... but even guitar heroes have to start somewhere, painstakingly picking out basic notes and simple chords as they take their first steps along the road to fame. With more than 40,000 copies in print, this detailed, extensively illustrated book is the ideal guide to accompany aspiring guitarists on their journey of musical discovery.

Learn How to Play the Guitar is a comprehensive beginners’ introduction to steel-strung (acoustic and electric) guitar playing and basic musicianship. It tells you what to look for when choosing your first instrument and amplifier, demonstrates the techniques used to form and pick notes and chords, and shows how you can greatly extend your abilities by learning to read musical notation and tablature.

There are chord diagrams and exercises to assist you as you practice, as well as up-to-the-minute information to help you select the right electronic effects and accessories, and advice on finding out more about particular playing styles that interest you. The book’s step-by-step explanations are illustrated with more than 200 specially shot photographs. Nick Freeth began playing guitar as a teenager. After a 20-year career in music radio production, initially at the BBC World Service and Jazz FM, and later as a freelance programer, he wrote his first book, The Acoustic Guitar, in collaboration with Charles Alexander in 1997; The Electric Guitar, by the same authors, appeared the following year. Nick’s subsequent work has focused on both music and American culture: it includes Icons of the Guitar (2001, with Cliff Douse), as well as highly acclaimed guides to Route 66 and the Pacific Coast Highway, and a history of the U.S. in the 1940s. A keen acoustic and electric guitarist, Nick’s favourite players are Ry Cooder, Pat Metheny, Jerry Garcia and Frank Zappa.

With over 40,000 printed copies sold, this is a comprehensive beginners’ introduction to steel-strung (acoustic and electric) guitar playing and basic musicianship.

Konsten att vara snäll av Stefan Einhorn

"En bok som alla borde läsa." Expressen

Begreppet "snäll" kopplas ofta till egenskaper som dumhet, naivitet och undergivenhet. Stefan Einhorn lägger en helt annan innebörd i ordet: "För mig är en snäll människa en individ som lever med etiken i sitt hjärta." Den snälla människan är minst av allt dum, tvärtom mycket klok, eftersom hon har förstått att det vi gör för andra gör vi också för oss själva.

   Men snällhet är en egenskap som måste förvaltas med gott omdöme. Att vara snäll på ett äkta, positivt och gott sätt är verkligen en konst.

   I Konsten att vara snäll skriver Stefan Einhorn bland annat om vad äkta snällhet innebär och om de motkrafter som kan hindra oss från att vara snälla. Han redogör också för vetenskapliga studier som visar att snällhet lönar sig och ger handfasta råd om hur man kan tillämpa detta i vardagslivet.

   Snällhet är det största vi kan erbjuda vår omvärld - och oss själva.

"... beskriver med stor klokhet vilken befrielse det är att ta sig ur bitterhet och gamla konflikter och istället leva ett fullödigt liv." Aftonbladet

"Hans nya bok är en fin handledning i vardagsetik, skriven med en fängslande stil." Upsala Nya Tidning

"Konsten att vara snäll är lättläst och spännande, om just det som berör oss alla." Norra Västerbotten

Dubbla slag av Malin Persson Giolito

Det fanns en tid då Hanna inte behövde anstränga sig, när hon var en ung lovande advokat. Drömjobbet fick hon utan att ens söka det och karriären gick som på räls. Men det tog slut, någonstans i samband med att hon blev gravid.

Plötsligt behandlas hon annorlunda på kontoret och stämningen blir allt mer rå och hånfull. Successivt utmanövreras från arbetsplatsen, trots att hon gör allt för att hålla sig kvar.

Hemma har hon en familj som kräver hennes uppmärksamhet och mitt i allt sker ett mystiskt dödsfall.

Dubbla slag är en smart och välskriven roman om juristen Hanna som försöker kombinera det hårda arbetet på advokatbyrån med familjelivet.

The Innocent by Harlan Coben

You never meant to kill him….One night, Matt Hunter innocently tried to break up a fight—and ended up a killer. Now, nine years later, he’s an ex-con who takes nothing for granted. His wife, Olivia, is pregnant, and the two of them are closing on their dream house. But all it will take is one shocking, inexplicable call from Olivia’s phone to shatter Matt’s life a second time….
A twisting, turning, emotionally charged story, and a compelling tale of the choices we make and the repercussions that never leave us.

Some mistakes can change your life forever. For Matt Hunter, that mistake came in one terrible moment when his attempt to help a friend and stop a fight resulted in an accidental death.  Matt was convicted of manslaughter and sent to prison.  Time that his peers spent in college, Matt endured behind bars.
Now nine years after his release from prison, his innocence long forgotten, he's an ex-con who takes nothing for granted. With his wife Olivia pregnant and the two of them closing on a house in his home town, things are looking up. Until the day Matt gets a shocking, inexplicable video call from Olivia's phone. And in an instant, the unraveling begins.
A mysterious man who begins tailing Matt turns up dead. A beloved nun is murdered. And local and federal authorities—including homicide investigator, Loren Muse, a childhood schoolmate of Matt's with a troubled past of her own—see all signs pointing to a former criminal with one murder already under his belt...Matt Hunter. Unwilling to lose everything for a second time, Matt and Olivia are forced outside the law in a desperate attempt to save their future together.
An electrifying thrill-ride of a novel that peeks behind the white picket fences of suburbia, The Innocent is at once a twisting, turning, emotionally charged story, and a compelling tale of the choices we make and the repercussions that never leave us.

 

Praise for The Innocent

“Intriguing right up to the final chapter.”—Associated Press

“Coben does for thrillers what Hitchcock did for the movies.”—South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The Horse Whisperer by Evans Nicholas

A forty-ton truck hurtles out of control on a snowy country road, a teenage girl on horseback in its path.  In a few terrible seconds the life of a family is shattered.  And a mother's quest begins -- to save her maimed daughter and a horse driven mad by pain.  It is an odyssey that will bring her to...
The Horse Whisperer
He is the stuff of legend.  His voice can calm wild horses and his touch heal broken spirits.  For secrets uttered softly into pricked and troubled ears, such men were once called Whisperers.  Now Tom Booker, the inheritor of this ancient gift, is to meet his greatest challenge.
Annie Graves has traveled across a continent with her daughter, Grace, and their wounded horse, Pilgrim, to the Booker ranch in Montana.  Annie has risked everything -- her career, her marriage, her comfortable life--in her desperate belief that the Whisperer can help them.  The accident has turned Pilgrim savage.  He is now so demented and dangerous that everyone says he should be destroyed.  But Annie won't give up on him, for she feels his fate is inextricably entwined with that of her daughter, who has retreated into a heartrending, hostile silence.  Annie knows that if the horse dies, something in Grace will die too.
In the weeks to come, under the massive sky of the Rocky Mountain Front, all their lives--including Tom Booker's--will be transformed forever in a way none could have foretold.  At once an epic love story and a gripping adventure, The Horse Whisperer weaves an extraordinary tale of healing and redemption--a magnificent emotional journey that explores our ancient bonds with earth and sky and hearts untamed.  It is a stirring elegy to the power of belief and self-discovery, to hopes lost and found again.

Biography

Nicholas Evans was born and grew up in Worcestershire, England. He studied law at Oxford University, graduating with first class honors, then worked as a journalist for three years on the Evening Chronicle in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. He then moved into television, producing films about US politics and the Middle-East for a weekly current affairs programme called Weekend World. It was during this time that he traveled a lot and got to know the United States.

In 1982 he started to produce arts documentaries – about famous writers, painters and film-makers, several of which won international awards (films about David Hockney, Francis Bacon, Patricia Highsmith). In 1983 he made a film about the great British director David Lean (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, etc). Lean became a friend and mentor and encouraged Evans to switch from fact to fiction.

For the next ten years, Evans wrote and produced a number of films for television and the cinema. In 1993 he met a blacksmith in the far South-West of England who told him about horse whisperers – people who have the gift of healing traumatized horses. Evans started work on what was to be his first novel.

Published in the fall of 1995, The Horse Whisperer has now sold about fifteen million copies across the world. It has been the number one bestseller in about 20 countries and has been translated into 36 languages. It was also made into a movie, starring, produced and directed by Robert Redford.

Since then Evans has written four more novels:  The Loop, The Smoke Jumper, The Divide and, his latest, The Brave.  He lives in Devon with his wife, the singer/songwriter Charlotte Gordon Cumming, whose latest album of songs inspired by The Brave is out in September.  It can be heard at thebravesongs.com

Busman’s Honeymoon by Dorothy L. Sayers

Lord Peter Wimsey and his bride, mystery writer Harriet Vane, start their honeymoon with murder. The former owner of Talboys estate is dead in the cellar with a misspelled "notise" to the milkman, not a spot of blood on his smashed skull, and £600 in his pocket.

Busman’s Honeymoon has everything—mystery, comedy, love, and drama—all served up in Dorothy Sayers’s best style.”
New York Times

The great Dorothy L. Sayers is considered by many to be the premier detective novelist of the Golden Age, and her dashing sleuth, Lord Peter Wimsey, one of mystery fiction’s most enduring and endearing protagonists. Acclaimed author Ruth Rendell has expressed her admiration for Sayers’s work, praising her “great fertility of invention, ingenuity, and wonderful eye for detail.” The fourth Dorothy L. Sayers classic to feature mystery writer Harriet Vane, Busman’s Honeymoon is now back in print with an introduction by Elizabeth George, herself a crime fiction master. Harriet and her love, Lord Peter, have finally tied the knot but begin their married life together on an expectedly sour note when a body is discovered in the cellar of their romantic country estate.

Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957) was a playwright, scholar, and acclaimed author of mysteries, best known for her books starring the gentleman sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey.
Born in Oxford, England, Sayers, whose father was a reverend, grew up in the Bluntisham rectory and won a scholarship to Oxford University where she studied modern languages and worked at the publishing house Blackwell's, which published her first book of poetry in 1916.
Years later, working as an advertising copywriter, Sayers began work on Whose Body?, a mystery novel featuring dapper detective Lord Peter Wimsey. Over the next two decades, Sayers published ten more Wimsey novels and several short stories, crafting a character whose complexity was unusual for the mystery novels of the time.
In 1936, Sayers brought Lord Peter Wimsey to the stage in a production of Busman's Honeymoon, a story which she would publish as a novel the following year. The play was so successful that she gave up mystery writing to focus on the stage, producing a series of religious works culminating in The Man Born to Be King (1941) a radio drama about the life of Jesus.
She also wrote theological essays and criticism during and after World War II, and in 1949 published the first volume of a translation of Dante's Divine Comedy (which she considered to be her best work).
Dorothy Sayers died of a heart attack in 1957.

White Teeth by Smith Zadie

At the center of this invigorating novel are two unlikely friends, Archie Jones and Samad Iqbal. Hapless veterans of World War II, Archie and Samad and their families become agents of England’s irrevocable transformation. A second marriage to Clara Bowden, a beautiful, albeit tooth-challenged, Jamaican half his age, quite literally gives Archie a second lease on life, and produces Irie, a knowing child whose personality doesn’t quite match her name (Jamaican for “no problem”). Samad’s late-in-life arranged marriage (he had to wait for his bride to be born), produces twin sons whose separate paths confound Iqbal’s every effort to direct them, and a renewed, if selective, submission to his Islamic faith. Set against London’ s racial and cultural tapestry, venturing across the former empire and into the past as it barrels toward the future, White Teeth revels in the ecstatic hodgepodge of modern life, flirting with disaster, confounding expectations, and embracing the comedy of daily existence.

Zadie Smith’s dazzling debut caught critics grasping for comparisons and deciding on everyone from Charles Dickens to Salman Rushdie to John Irving and Martin Amis. But the truth is that Zadie Smith’s voice is remarkably, fluently, and altogether wonderfully her own.
Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Review

 

“A preternaturally gifted new writer [with] a voice that’s street-smart and learned, sassy and philosophical all at the same time.”–Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“Brilliant…. Smith is a master at detail…a postmodern Charles Dickens…[Smith's] rich storytelling and wicked wit are suited to the sights and smells of the world that England has inherited.”–The Washington Post

“[A] vibrant, rollicking first novel about race and idenity…[Smith's] prickly wit is affectionate and poignant.”–People

“[A] dazzling intergenerational first novel…wonderfully inventive…playful yet unaffected, mongrel yet cohesive, profound yet funny, vernacular yet lyrical. ”–Los Angeles Times

“[A] marvel of a debut novel. . .Reminscent of both Salman Rushdie and John Irving, White Teeth is a comic, canny, sprawling tale, adeptly held together by Smith's literary sleight of hand.”–Entertainment Weekly

“A magnificent and audacious novel, jampacked with memorable characters and challenging ideas.”–The Atlanta Journal & Constitution

Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott

Set in the reign of Richard I, Coeur de Lion, Ivanhoe is packed with memorable incidents - sieges, ambushes and combats - and equally memorable characters: Cedric of Rotherwood, the die-hard Saxon; his ward Rowena; the fierce Templar knight, Sir Brian de Bois-Gilbert; the Jew, Isaac of York, and his beautiful, spirited daughter Rebecca; Wamba and Gurth, jester and swineherd respectively. Scott explores the conflicts between the Crown and the powerful Barons, between the Norman overlords and the conquered Saxons, and between Richard and his scheming brother, Prince John. At the same time he brings into the novel the legendary Robin Hood and his band, and creates a brilliant, colourful account of the age of chivalry with all its elaborate rituals and costumes and its values of honour and personal glory.

In the twelfth century, Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe returns home to England from the Third Crusade to claim his inheritance and the love of the lady Rowena. The heroic adventures of this noble Saxon knight involve him in the struggle between Richard the Lion-Hearted and his malignant brother John: a conflict that brings Ivanhoe into alliance with the mysterious outlaw Robin Hood and his legendary fight for the forces of good.

About the Author

 

Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832) was a Scottish novelist, playwright and poet. He is notable for being the first British author that gained an international reputation during his lifetime. Although the romanticism of his historic fiction later fell out of favour with critics, his major novels, such as 'Rob Roy' and 'Ivanhoe', are acknowledged as classic works of literature.

Neil Gaiman gives us a mythology for a modern age -- complete with dark prophecy, family dysfunction, mystical deceptions, and killer birds. Not to mention a lime.

Anansi Boys
God is dead. Meet the kids.

When Fat Charlie's dad named something, it stuck. Like calling Fat Charlie "Fat Charlie." Even now, twenty years later, Charlie Nancy can't shake that name, one of the many embarrassing "gifts" his father bestowed -- before he dropped dead on a karaoke stage and ruined Fat Charlie's life.

Mr. Nancy left Fat Charlie things. Things like the tall, good-looking stranger who appears on Charlie's doorstep, who appears to be the brother he never knew. A brother as different from Charlie as night is from day, a brother who's going to show Charlie how to lighten up and have a little fun ... just like Dear Old Dad. And all of a sudden, life starts getting very interesting for Fat Charlie.

Because, you see, Charlie's dad wasn't just any dad. He was Anansi, a trickster god, the spider-god. Anansi is the spirit of rebellion, able to overturn the social order, create wealth out of thin air, and baffle the devil. Some said he could cheat even Death himself.

Returning to the territory he so brilliantly explored in his masterful New York Times bestseller, American Gods, the incomparable Neil Gaiman offers up a work of dazzling ingenuity, a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and fiercely funny -- a true wonder of a novel that confirms Stephen King's glowing assessment of the author as "a treasure-house of story, and we are lucky to have him."

Critical Praise

"Ebullient . . . The Gaiman faithful will devour it gratefully."  --Sacramento Bee

"Ebullient . . . ingenious . . . enormously entertaining throughout." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Another lovely story as only Gaiman can tell it; necessary and recommended."  --Library Journal

"[Gaiman is] the folksy, witty, foolishly wise narrator to perfection." --Booklist (starred review)

I make things up and write them down. Which takes us from comics (like SANDMAN) to novels (like ANANSI BOYS and AMERICAN GODS) to short stories (some are collected in SMOKE AND MIRRORS) and to occasionally movies (like Dave McKean's MIRRORMASK or the NEVERWHERE TV series, or my own short film A SHORT FILM ABOUT JOHN BOLTON).

Synopsis:

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948) was one of the few men in history to fight simultaneously on moral, religious, political, social, economic, and cultural fronts. During his time as a lawyer in South Africa he developed his strategy of non-violence: the idea of opposing unjust laws by non-violent protest. He led the Indian National Congress party in three major campaigns against British rule, each culminating in his arrest.  In Gandhi , a short introduction to Gandhi's life and thought, Bhikhu Parekh outlines both Gandhi's major philosophical insights and the limitations of his thought. Written with extensive access to Gandhi's writings in Indian languages to which most commentators have little or no access, Parekh looks at Gandhi's cosmocentric anthropology, his spiritual view of politics, and his theories of oppression, non-violent action, and active citizenship. He also considers how the success of Gandhi's principles were limited by his lack of coherent theories of evil, and of state and power. Gandhi's view of man as ascetic allows no room for expressions of the cultural, artistic, or intellectual. Furthermore, he was so hostile to modern civilization that he was unable to appreciate its complex dialectic or offer a meaningful narrative.  Nevertheless, Gandhi's life and thought had an enormous impact on the Indian nation, and he continues to be widely revered--known before and after his assassination as Mahatma, the Great Soul.  Reviews: "An excellent intro for first-time western students of Gandhi and India."--Prakash Chenjen, Southern Oregon University   About the Author: Bhikhu Parekh is Professor of Political Theory in the Department of Politics at the University of Hull.

The Satanic Verses by Rushdie Salman

Just before dawn one winter’s morning, a hijacked aeroplane blows apart high above the English Channel and two figures tumble, clutched in an embrace, towards the sea: Gibreel Farishta, India’s legendary movie star, and Saladin Chamcha, the man of a thousand voices.

Washed up, alive, on an English beach, their survival is a miracle. But there is a price to pay. Gibreel and Saladin have been chosen as opponents in the eternal wrestling match between Good and Evil. But chosen by whom? And which is which? And what will be the outcome of their final confrontation?

Review

"'A staggering achievement, brilliantly enjoyable' Nadine Gordimer"

"'A masterpiece' Sunday Times"

"'A novel of metamorphosis, hauntings, memories, hallucinations, revelations, advertising jingles and jokes. Rushdie has the power of description, and we succumb' The Times"

"'Damnably entertaining and fiendishly ingenious. One of the very few current writers whose works are attempts at the great Bible, "the bright book of life" ' London Review of Books"

"A great novelist, a master of perpetual storytelling." (V S Pritchett)

Book Description

One of the most controversial and infamous books of modern times

Synopsis

No book in modern times has matched the uproar sparked by Salman Rushdie's "The Satanic Verses", which earned its author a death sentence. Furor aside, it is a marvelously erudite study of good and evil, a feast of language served up by a writer at the height of his powers, and a rollicking comic fable. The book begins with two Indians, Gibreel Farishta ("for fifteen years the biggest star in the history of the Indian movies") and Saladin Chamcha, a Bombay expatriate returning from his first visit to his homeland in 15 years, plummeting from the sky after the explosion of their jetliner, and proceeds through a series of metamorphoses, dreams and revelations. Rushdie's powers of invention are astonishing in this Whitbread Prize winner.

About the Author

Sir Salman Rushdie has received many awards for his writing, including the European Union’s Aristeion Prize for Literature. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. In 1993 Midnight’s Children was judged to be the ‘Booker of Bookers’, the best novel to have won the Booker Prize in its first 25 years. In June 2007 he received a knighthood in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

About the book:

There’s power in bones…

The first body is chained to a stake: strangled, stabbed, and a burning tyre around its neck. But is this a gangland execution or something much darker?

Someone’s leaving little knots of bones outside Detective Inspector Logan McRae’s house, but he’s got more pressing things to worry about. Rival drug gangs are fighting over product and territory; two teenage lovers are missing; someone’s crippling Asian immigrants; and Logan’s been lumbered with an ambitious new Detective Sergeant, a mountain of paperwork, and the unwelcome attention of his superiors and the local crime boss.

 

When another body turns up, it looks as if the similarities between these murders and the plot of a bestselling novel are more than just a coincidence. And perhaps those little knots of bones are more important than they look…
