Now first- and second-graders can really sharpen their skills. Announcing Brain Quest Math and Brain Quest Reading, a natural extension of Brain Quest into single-subject tutorials. Using the same curriculum-based, question-and-answer format that has made Brain Quest America's #1 educational bestseller with over 16 million copies in print, Math and Reading concentrate on the two subjects that are of paramount importance for parents, teachers, and especially the kids. Math is as focused as flash cards, but with far more range, interactivity, and educational value. Each grade comprises two decks. 1st Grade has five questions to a card, covering Numeration, or the basics of numbers; Bits & Pieces, including shapes and equivalents; Computation-addition and subtraction; Measurements; and Problem-Solving. 2nd Grade, with seven questions to a card, adds two new categories to the original five-Super Computation, which has more complicated operations, and Fun with Numbers. Reading takes a thorough approach to working on the fundamentals of reading and language arts. First comes an original one-page story illustrated in full-color, with 56 stories per grade. Following the story card is a comprehension card, quizzing the reader about the story, its characters, and content. Following that card is a second question card-five questions for 1st Grade, seven for 2nd Grade-on Grammar, Word Choice, Phonics, Vocabulary, Extensions, and Mixed Bag. A strong foundation in math, a strong foundation in reading-that's what elementary education is all about. Making it fun to learn is what Brain Quest is all about-that, and reinforcing the idea that It's O.K. to Be Smart!

ILLUMINATI, SAKRILEG, DAS VERLORENE SYMBOL und INFERNO - vier Welterfolge, die mit ORIGIN ihre spektakuläre Fortsetzung finden. Die Wege zur Erlösung sind zahlreich. Verzeihen ist nicht der einzige. Als der Milliardär und Zukunftsforscher Edmond Kirsch drei der bedeutendsten Religionsvertreter der Welt um ein Treffen bittet, sind die Kirchenmänner zunächst skeptisch. Was will ihnen der bekennende Atheist mitteilen? Was verbirgt sich hinter seiner "bahnbrechenden Entdeckung", das Relevanz für Millionen Gläubige auf diesem Planeten haben könnte? Nachdem die Geistlichen Kirschs Präsentation gesehen haben, verwandelt sich ihre Skepsis in blankes Entsetzen. Die Furcht vor Kirschs Entdeckung ist begründet. Und sie ruft Gegner auf den Plan, denen jedes Mittel recht ist, ihre Bekanntmachung zu verhindern. Doch es gibt jemanden, der unter Einsatz des eigenen Lebens bereit ist, das Geheimnis zu lüften und der Welt die Augen zu öffnen: Robert Langdon, Symbolforscher aus Harvard, Lehrer Edmond Kirschs und stets im Zentrum der größten Verschwörungen.
