Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A time machine may be one family’s only salvation as the world hurtles toward an apocalypse in this cyberpunk thriller. Technology has started to accelerate at a terrifying rate. By the mid‐twenty-first century, we might see a Singularity: a convergence of artificial intelligence, advanced nanotechnologies for building things at the atomic scale, precise genomics, and other wonders. What happens after that? Will the descendants of today’s humanity become gods or demons, or simply destroy themselves? And will we be among their number, carried along by rejuvenation and immortality treatments? For Natalie and her irritatingly beautiful young sister Suzanna, these are no longer abstract questions. The familiar world is on the brink of crisis. Dumped by her live‐in boyfriend and stuck back at home with her parents, Nat is not a happy person. And her father, Hugh, is acting like a mad scientist. What the hell is he building out there in the garage? When Hugh frog‐marches his family into the garage, it looks as if he has really gone mad, and they are due to perish even before the plague wipes out all life on Earth. But the machine Hugh has been working on hurls them all—not forgetting their dog Ferdy—ever further into the future, and the escapade doesn't stop until the very end of time and space.

No Other sub.rights Available Orig.lang & title Classifications Main Literature Secondary Victorian literature and science Catalogue Section QB Other The Science of Starving in Victorian Literature, Medicine, and Political Economy is a reassessment of the languages and methodologies used, throughout the nineteenth century, for discussing extreme hunger in Britain. Set against the providentialism of conservative political economy, this study uncovers an emerging, dynamic way of describing literal starvation in medicine and physiology. No longer seen as a divine punishment for individual failings, starvation became, in the human sciences, a pathology whose horrific symptoms registered failings of state and statute. Providing new and historically-rich readings of the works of Charles Kingsley, Elizabeth Gaskell, and Charles Dickens, this book suggests that the realism we have come to associate with Victorian social problem fiction learned a vast amount from the empirical, materialist objectives of the medical sciences and that, within the mechanics of these intersections, we find important re-examinations of how we might think about this ongoing humanitarian issue.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The scentifically based way to lose weight and keep it off forever. Whether you've tried all the diets but find you just keep putting the weight back on - plus extra - or simply want to lose weight and keep it off forever, this is the book for you, with real solutions based on real science. Like many women, Dr Amanda Sainsbury-Salis began dieting in her teens despite being a normal weight. Over the next few years she tried all kinds of diets and six years on her weight had ballooned; she was now obese. 'I dieted myself fat,' Dr Sainsbury-Salis says. 'I'd lose a kilo or two then just gain it all back, plus more.' She also fell prey to binge eating, pigging out on pastries in between her dieting attempts. When in despair she finally gave up dieting, she decided to start a career in medical research so that she could find an effective way to lose weight. Today she is a world leader in the field of weight loss. Through her research, she discovered that the key to successful dieting is to understand how your brain regulates your weight and work with it, rather than against it, by never going hungry. Staying satisfied is the key to beating the 'famine reaction', your body's way of protecting itself when you diet from what it perceives as a life-threatening food shortage. Once in tune with your body, it's easy to lose weight and keep it off. Amanda tested out her theories on herself, losing nearly 30 kilograms and keeping it off for more than nine years (and counting), then helped her husband to lose 20 kilograms. Now, in The Don't Go Hungry Diet, Dr Sainsbury-Salis explains the science behind her discoveries simply and effectively, then tells how you, too, can lose weight more effectively and with less effort than ever before. With chapters on how to recognise and deal with a famine reaction and other scientific breakthroughs as well as on nutrition and exercise, plus 50 delicious recipes, this is a scientifically based plan that is simple for anyone to follow -and that works.

Book excerpt: First published in 1890, ‘Hunger’ is celebrated as the literary commencement of the 20th Century and an excellent example of modern, psychology-driven literature by Knut Hamsun, a Norwegian writer who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920. Knut Hamsun acknowledged that modern literature should express the complexity of the human mind, nowhere is that philosophy more evident than in this captivating modern masterpiece. It tells the story of an unnamed traveler who stumbles around the streets of Norway's capital looking for food. Hamsun creates a stunning portrait of poverty and a biting social commentary on modern urban life. We follow the traveler in the story around the town and discover the true depths of his hunger. Hamsun is at his best in this classic of modern literature.

Download Love and Lust PDF Format Full Free by Theodor Reik and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-07-05 with total page 623 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: These selections from Theodor Reik's work concern the love life and sexual activity of men and women. Reik establishes the theme of this work in the following way: "The sex urge hunts for lustful pleasure; love is in search of joy and happiness." Over a third of this volume had never been published in book form before it originally appeared half a century ago. Its appearance in paperback, for the first time, is a welcome addition to current debates, liberated from ideological and political constraints.The first part of the book is so far ahead of its time that it is still current. It reveals Reik's departure from Freud's theories and from those of most of his contemporaries in psychology and psychoanalysis. Part Two is a greatly abbreviated version of Masochism in Modern Man, retaining those parts with a direct bearing on the subject of this volume. Part Three offers two essays on why people remain single. In the author's usual direct style, they deal with the marriage shyness of the male and the psychological fears and resistance of both men and women to acceptance of the marriage bond. Part Four is Reik at his wisest. "The first lady whom I asked to read the manuscript said smilingly: 'Many of your impressions about us (women) are correct. No man should read the book!' A few seconds later, she said: 'Or rather, every man should read the book!'"As Paul Roazen noted, "in contrast to some of Freud's other followers, Reik was prescient early on in distinguishing self-love from narcissism. Reik believed that genuine self-regard was the ultimate basis for developing the capacity to love."At times Reik seems to defend women, at times to critique them. Yet he writes with sympathy and understanding. He challenges other authorities who have written on the subject, but he also agrees with many of them. Love and Lust is civilized writing at its most provocative. Reik is authoritative, and his book reflects the glow of a rich personali

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Theodor Reik (12 May 1888 in Wien - 31 December 1969 in New York City) was a prominent psychoanalyst who trained as one of Freud's first students in Vienna, Austria. Reik received a Ph.D. degree in psychology from the University of Vienna in 1912. Reik presents a forceful criticism of traditional Freudian theory in this book. Freud had believed that love is always based on some form of sexual desire. Reik argues, to the contrary, that love and lust are distinct motivational forces.
