Destined to become a modern classic in the vein of Guns, Germs, and Steel, Sapiens is a lively, groundbreaking history of humankind told from a unique perspective. 100,000 years ago, at least six species of human inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo Sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come? In Sapiens, Dr. Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical -- and sometimes devastating -- breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural, and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology, and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behaviour from the heritage of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come? Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, Sapiens challenges everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our power...and our future.

Life used to be simple. I was a city girl with humble dreams. Then Dylan O'Dea broke into my flat, held me against the wall and told me to stay quiet. It was like in the movies, where the universe zeros in on a single scene. I looked into his eyes and knew he was going to change me. For Dylan, the sky was always falling. He showed me how our world is a contradiction of beauty and ugliness. How we choose to ignore the awful and gloss over it with the palatable. How you need just a tiny drop of something unsavoury to create every great scent. Pretty deep for a pair of teenagers living in a block of council flats in inner city Dublin, right? Probably. But we weren't typical. We both had our obsessions. Mine was growing things, Dylan's was scent. He taught me how to use my nose, and I introduced him to the magic of flowers. I had no idea that one day he'd build an empire from what we started together. But before that, there was love and happiness, tragedy and epic heartbreak... My name is Evelyn Flynn and I'm going to tell you about the crack in everything. A Crack in Everything is Book #1 in L.H. Cosway's Cracks duet.

I was sixteen when he came to our house. Landon Jones, a boy with nothing, from nowhere. He had cinnamon hair and gray eyes--just like mine. When we went out as a family with my foster brother, people asked if Landon was my twin. He wasn't. That year, we found out how much he wasn't. When my parents caught us, they threw Landon out like trash. Now I'm twenty-seven, a soon-to-be surgeon, like my mom and dad. I know residency is going to kick my ass, but I had no idea that it would rip my heart out, too. Not until I see him--Dr. Jones.

Even today, as trendy diets and a weight-loss frenzy sweep the nation, two-thirds of adults are still obese and children are being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, typically an “adult” disease, at an alarming rate. If we’re obsessed with being thin more so than ever before, why are Americans stricken with heart disease as much as we were 30 years ago? In The China Study, Dr. T. Colin Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The report also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic scientists. The New York Times has recognized the study as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” and the “most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease.” The China Study is not a diet book. Dr. Campbell cuts through the haze of misinformation and delivers an insightful message to anyone living with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and those concerned with the effects of aging.

From mod folk artist to flower power pixie elfin to the king of glam rockers, Marc Bolan was the ultimate chameleon. His far reaching musical and stylistic influence is more relevant today than ever with hits such as 'Ride A White Swan', 'Children Of The Revolution', 'Get It On' and 'Hot Love' as fresh and exhilarating as when first released. At the peak of his popularity during his lifetime, Bolan was outselling Jimi Hendrix and The Who, and yet relatively little is really known about the hypnotic, enigmatic 20th century boy turned 21st century icon. At last, in the 35th anniversary year of his tragic death, Marc Bolan represents the definite biography. Here, rock biographer, Lesley-Ann Jones, paints a meticulous portrait of the T. Rex front man. From his childhood growing up in Hackney to his untimely death at the age of 29, Bolan's life was one of relentless experimentation and metamorphoses. Hallucinogenic drugs, wizardry and levitation, alcoholism, tax evasion and a spectacular fall from grace were to punctuate his short life, as he continued to strive to reinvent himself and his music over and over again. Lesley-Ann has been granted access to those who knew Bolan best, including his partner and the mother of his only son, Gloria Jones and his brother, Harry Feld.

Orofacial pain - defined as pain lasting over three months in the mouth or face - is increasing in prevelance, with approximately 7% of the UK population having experienced it. It is currently managed by either dentists or general medical practitioners, both of whom have radically different approaches to treatment. While management of orofacial pain has improved quite dramatically over recent years, it is essential that dentists and general practitioners are aware of these advances and of the differences in their approaches. This concise handbook takes an evidence-based psychosocial approach to the management of patients with pain in the face or mouth and provides basic guidelines to facilitate care quickly in the clinical setting. The book will serve as a useful guide for dental practitioners, specialists in orofacial pain, trainee pain specialists, neurologists with an interest in pain, specialist pain nurses, as well as general medical practitioners.

Authors Note: This is the second book in the IF I BREAK series. I would highly suggest reading the series in order. The first book in the series is currently free. Lauren Brooks fell in love with Cal Scott at twenty one, married him at twenty two and had her heart broken at twenty three when he walked out of their marriage. At twenty five, while raising their daughter on her own, Lauren is finally moving on with her life...until she learns the reason for Cal's abandonment. The walls she had carefully built around her begin to collapse. The day she meets Chris, all those feelings she thinks she has bottled up tightly come spilling out. She can't afford to give in to her heart's desire again. Love nearly broke her once, and her daughter doesn't need two broken parents. Christopher Scott is in love and newly engaged to Jenna, who saw him through an illness he didn't think he could survive. He's finally settling into the life he's always wanted, and he's making plans he only dared to dream before now. That's when a woman named Lauren arrives on his doorstep. She's intriguing, beautiful and, try as he might, he can't stay away. The closer he gets to her, the more his rock-solid plans begin to crumble. All he knows is that Lauren is the missing piece to a puzzle he must solve. For him to put all the pieces in place, he'll have to follow his heart, and that might cost him everything...
