This suspenseful sequel to The Heart of a Lynx demands the answers to two questions … where is she? and what will happen to her? In a game of wits, passionate, injured women unite to bring down a psychopathic narcissist… but first they must find her. The frustration of the hunt and exhilaration of the run; the rage of the betrayed and the mania of the betrayer color the language, the story, and the human questions that arise from both obsession and madness. When does pursuit of justice become revenge? When does protecting the living trump honoring the dead? At what point, at what cost, does one let go?

Genius At Play: The Curious Mind of John Horton Conway

by: Bloomsbury USA

Product rating: 4.4 with 7 reviews


Conway is a creative genius.” –Martin Gardner

An unabashed original, John Horton Conway is Archimedes, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, and Richard Feynman all rolled into one–a singular mathematician, with a rock star’s charisma, a sly sense of humor, a polymath’s promiscuous curiosity, and a burning desire to explain everything about the world to everyone in it.

Born in Liverpool in 1937, Conway found fame as a barefoot Cambridge professor. He discovered the Conway groups in mathematical symmetry, and invented the aptly named surreal numbers, as well as the cult classic Game of Life–more than a cool fad, Life demonstrates how simplicity generates complexity and the game provides an analogy for all mathematics and the entire universe. Moving to Princeton in 1987, as a mathemagician he deployed cards, ropes, dice, coat hangers, and even the odd Slinky as props to extend his winning imagination and share his mathy obsessions with signature contagion. He is a jet-setting ambassador-at-large for the beauties of all things mathematical.

Genius At Play is an intimate investigation into the mind of an endearing genius, laying bare Conway’s personal and professional idiosyncrasies. The intimacy comes courtesy of the man himself. He generously granted Roberts full access, though not without the occasional grudge and grumble: “Oh hell,” he’d say. “You’re not going to put that in the book. Are you?!?

Covert Propaganda and Molding the Mass Mind: How our thoughts are being secretly shaped

Product rating: 5.0 with 1 reviews


Propaganda, by design, is one of the most misunderstood words in the English language. It’s not just something our enemies use. We invented modern propaganda and use it more than any country in history. Open, aboveboard propaganda like most advertising and PR isn’t inherently unethical. However, when it’s designed not to be detected, it can be both insidious and dangerous. Covert Propaganda and Molding the Mass Mind exposes a century-long hidden campaign to manipulate our thoughts and behavior and reveals how specific propaganda techniques have impacted numerous events at home and abroad—including how propaganda was involved in the decision behind dropping nuclear bombs on Japan in 1945.

Written by a former journalist and propagandist, this book unveils some 30 propaganda techniques that allow the economic power elite and its ghostlike propagandists to set parameters of behavior and to draw lines in the sand that we learn instinctively not to cross. Prepare to have your lifelong stereotypes shattered as you discover how your identity, actions, feelings, beliefs, and even relationships have been impacted by these covert strategies.

Packed with eye-opening examples of mass mind manipulation, past and present, this journey behind the covert curtain will open up a whole new world you likely never knew existed. It also offers ways to protect yourself from this mass onslaught on your senses.

A landmark book by marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols on the remarkable effects of water on our health and well-being.

Why are we drawn to the ocean each summer? Why does being near water set our minds and bodies at ease? In BLUE MIND, Wallace J. Nichols revolutionizes how we think about these questions, revealing the remarkable truth about the benefits of being in, on, under, or simply near water. Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with compelling personal stories from top athletes, leading scientists, military veterans, and gifted artists, he shows how proximity to water can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety, and increase professional success.

BLUE MIND not only illustrates the crucial importance of our connection to water-it provides a paradigm shifting “blueprint” for a better life on this Blue Marble we call home.
