Hilary Robertson reveals a multitude of ways to style and display the “stuff of life”—the flotsam and jetsam of possessions, from pictures and ornaments to hats and bicycles, that we accumulate over the course of time. In the first chapter, How to Arrange your Stuff, Hilary identifies and illustrates four different approaches to arrangements—intuitive, narrative, practical, and curatorial—and shows how each one can be achieved. She also considers the variety of display locations available within the home—walls, mantelpieces, windowsills, chests of drawers, tabletops—and suggests how to make the most of them. Next, in Stories Told by Real Homes, Hilary shares insider knowledge drawn from the experience of creating interiors that fall into five different styles—Neatnik, Bohemian, Naturalist, Sculpture Vulture, and Noble Salvage. Some people are magpies—they love stuff; finding, collecting, and displaying it—while their opposite, the minimalists, are on a mission to contain or tame it. The ideas in this book will appeal to magpies, minimalists, and everyone in between.

Fat: such a little word evokes big responses. While ‘fat’ describes the size and shape of bodies, our negative reactions to corpulent bodies also depend on something tangible and tactile; as this book argues, there is more to fat than meets the eye. Fat: A Cultural History of the Stuff of Life offers a historical reflection on how fat has been perceived and imagined in the West since antiquity. Featuring fascinating historical accounts, philosophical, religious and cultural arguments, including discussions of status, gender and race, the book digs deep into the past for the roots of our current notions and prejudices. Three central themes emerge: how we have perceived and imagined obesity over the centuries; how fat as a substance has elicited disgust and how it evokes perceptions of animality; but also how it has been associated with vitality and fertility. By exploring the complex ways in which fat, fatness and fattening have been perceived over time, this book provides rich insights into the stuff our stereotypes are made of.

When Karen Karbo's father, a charming, taciturn Clint Eastwood type who lives in a triple-wide in the Nevada desert, is diagnosed with lung cancer, his only daughter rises to the challenge of caring for him. Neither of them is exactly cut out for the job. As Dick Karbo's disease progresses, Karen finds herself sometimes the responsible adult, sometimes a stubborn teenager all over again. But in the end, what father and daughter discover more than anything is the love and the toughness that makes them alike.

In The Stuff of Life , Eric P. Widmaier deconstructs the fundamental processes of the human body and focuses on those vital biological substances that aren't particularly well understood. By examining the blueprints that dictate what we are, Widmaier answers questions, including: - Why are some fats worse than others? - Is cholesterol actually good for anything? - How does the stomach digest food? - Why do we need to breathe and why can't we hold our breath for very long? - How does a single carbon atom contribute to the difference between a man and a woman? - Where does our energy come from? The Stuff of Life answers these and many more common questions about how the body works in a concise, easy-to-read handbook complete with illustrations.

Although Asif Zaidi is a banker and a business leadership advisor by profession, he is fundamentally a thinker of broad understanding and interests. In The Stuff of Life, he offers an anthology of thoughts on diverse subjects, attempting to see the problems of life in the light of human reasoning. Asif Zaidi is endlessly curious, and leaves no big question untouched. While turning his gaze from one intellectual pursuit to the next, in this collection of essays he addresses nature, evolution, religion, literature, psychology, and scientists, sages, prophets, philosophers, thinkers, and poets who have, down the ages, contributed to human development, making life meaningful. From the personal to the societal to the universal, he turns his spirit of inquiry to a wide swathe of topics: the love of learning: mans search for meaning: faith, tradition, and rationality: and the moral dimension of existence. Simple and direct, The Stuff of Life articulates a viewpoint grounded in a rational approach to life and this world.
