Language: English | EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 0374212570 | 2010 | 336 pages | 0.2 MB / 0.3 MB
"Balancing acts," writes Adam Phillips, "are entertaining because they are risky, but there are situations in which it is more dangerous to keep your balance than to lose it." In these exhilarating and casually brilliant essays, the philosopher and psychoanalyst examines literature, fairy tales, works of art, and case studies to reveal the paradoxes inherent in our appetites and fears. How do we know when enough is enough? Are there times when too much is just right? Why is Cinderella's biggest problem not the prince but other women? What can Richard III's furious sense of his own helplessness tell us of our own desires? On Balance shows Phillips's bravura gift for linking disparate ideas and the dreamers that dreamed them into something beautiful, revelatory, and essential.

The Upside of Down by Susan Biggar
Susan Biggar fell in love with a New Zealander. Maybe as an American, she saw Darryl as a ticket to an exhilarating, global life. When her first son arrived, he came with fierce blue eyes, a curly toe and cystic fibrosis. The doctors said he would be lucky to reach the age of thirty. A job offer in Paris snatched the family from New Zealand, depositing them in the city of lights, romance-and a whole new medical world. When Susan's second baby was also born with cystic fibrosis , the insignificant worries of her old life slipped away, shifting her from normal mum' to gotta-figure-out-how-to-keep-thekids-alive-mum'. This-and all that followed-was not what she expected. Set across the globe-in California, New Zealand, France and Australia-The Upside of Down is a story of belief, of learning that sometimes joy is a decision.

Dame Joan Hammond: Love and Music by Sara Hardy
English | Oct 1, 2009 | ISBN: 1741750830 | 320 Pages | PDF | 5 MB
A life worthy of a diva-a story of danger, love, sacrifice, and the fickleness of fate. Joan Hammond lived an extraordinary life, as dramatic and deeply moving as any of the operatic roles for which she became famous-Tosca, Mimi, Butterfly, Aida, Salome, Rusalka. No stranger to success, in her youth Joan was a golfing champion, excelling at most sports. But it was her voice that took her on a life-changing journey to Europe where the opulent pre-war theaters became her domain.

Dame Joan Hammond: Love and Music
Ever passionate, always generous, and never losing her Australian accent, Joan Hammond was an inspiring character; yet behind the scenes she faced many challenging twists of fortune. Joan's exhilarating performances introduced opera and classical song to millions of people, world-wide. She turned little-known arias into popular hits and pioneered the way for Australian artists on the world stage. When her own performing and recording days were over, she devoted herself to coaxing Australian opera into life not least through teaching young singers. Sara Hardy tells Joan's life story in all its glamour and complexity. Through interviews with family and old friends, she captures Joan's joie de vivre-that wonderful sparkle that never left her eyes.

When her husband is killed at Waterloo, Lilias Fairchild takes up his cavalry sword and boldly storms the front, earning herself the nickname Angel of Vengeance. But there is another angel on the battlefield who is just as single-minded, and just as ruthless

Passion has never been so dangerous.

Two years later, Lilias and Angelstone lock eyes in a crowded ballroom and the memory returns in an exhilarating rush. The history they share, and hide from the world, is as impossible to ignore as the heat of their attraction. But it's that very connection that spells doom for their scandalous affair. When someone from the shadows of their past proves a dire threat to their lives, passion might not be enough to save them.

The Universal History of Computing: From the Abacus to the Quantum Computer

The Universal History of Computing: From the Abacus to the Quantum Computer by Georges Ifrah
English | 1 edition | November 6, 2000 | ISBN-10: 0471396710 | 416 pages | DJVU | 3,1 Mb
A brilliant follow-up to a landmark international bestseller
"Suppose every instrument could by command or by anticipation of need execute its function on its own; suppose that spindles could weave of their own accord, and plectra strike the strings of zithers by themselves; then craftsmen would have no need of hand-work, and masters have no need of slaves." –Aristotle Called the Indiana Jones of arithmetic, Georges Ifrah embarked in 1974 on a ten-year quest to discover where numbers come from and what they say about us.

His first book, the highly praised Universal History of Numbers, drew from this remarkable journey, presented the first complete account of the invention and evolution of numbers the world over–and became an international bestseller. In The Universal History of Computing, Ifrah continues his exhilarating exploration into the fascinating world of numbers. In this fun, engaging but no less learned book, he traces the development of computing from the invention of the abacus to the creation of the binary system three centuries ago to the incredible conceptual, scientific, and technical achievements that made the first modern computers possible. He shows us how various cultures, scientists, and industries across the world struggled to break free of the tedious labor of mental calculation and, as a result, he reveals the evolution of the human mind.
