'A joy of a book - enriching, illuminating, eclectic and far from a conventional science read' Richard Webb, New Scientist Books of the Year 'Carlo Rovelli's imaginative rigour, his lively humour and his beautiful writing are inspiring' Erica Wagner One of the most inspiring thinkers of our age, the bestselling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics transforms the way we think about the world with his reflections on science, history and humanity In this collection of writings, the logbook of an intelligence always on the move, Carlo Rovelli follows his curiosity and invites us on a voyage through science, history, philosophy and politics.

Space. The Feline Frontier. It has been said (by Mark Twain) that “If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.” In this volume we explore the many and manifest reasons why humans should voluntarily accord first place in space to their feline brethren. From Robert A. Heinlein’s “Ordeal in Space” in which the merest kitten confers the gift of courage on his human, to Cordwainer Smith’s “Ballad of Lost C’mell,” which answers the very question of what would be the outcome of the melding of human and cat, we offer here sixteen reasons why cats are Number One in our book. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Gnomes, fairies, and elves of every imaginable size, shape, and color spring to life in this marvelously illustrated guide to the fairy realm. Just one glance at the extensive table of contents reveals the scope and variety of fairy folklore explored here -- from Persian and Arabian romance to the mythology of Scandinavia, England, France, Germany, and Switzerland. Everything from Kelpies and Korrigans to Brownies, Bugaboos, and more is included. Taken from a variety of sources of popular myth and legend, The World Guide to Gnomes, Fairies, Elves, and Other Little People forms a rich compendium of the superstititions surrounding the little people. Not only does the author explore every type and species of the short and ugly, but he also traces resemblances and similarities among the fairy traditions of different countries. In addition, the fairy tradition is discussed as it appears in major works of English literature, from the Middle Age epic of Beowulf and Chaucer's Canterbury tales to Spencer's The faerie queene and Shakespeare's A midsummer night's dream. Complete with over twenty-five lively illustrations, it is a fascinating guide to the enchanting world of the little people.

"Absolutely Fabulous" (Wired). "The single best source for unclassified intelligence information" (U.S. military deployment officer). "A real lifesaver" (Time). The critics rave and here's why: Robert Young Pelton goes where the timid fear to tread -- straight into the heart of the world's forbidden, lethal, even criminal places, and gives readers all they need to know to survive. Pelton reveals the hidden dangers, including disease, land mines, kidnapping, terrorists, mercenaries, mujahedin, and militias of more than 30 dangerous countries. With firsthand accounts of adventures in these places, Pelton provides indispensable information on contacts for rescue organizations, environmental groups, political activists (including rebel groups), training schools in outdoor survival, ice climbing, commando techniques, motorcycle racing, and other white-knuckle pursuits. The World's Most Dangerous Places is everything you didn't want to know about drugs, guns, crime, war, accidents, and uprisings, but should, in one engrossing book.
