Hören Sie auf Elsie, die Kuh! Was haben Kühe, Popkultur und der Palästinakonflikt miteinander zu tun? Nun, sie sind alle Teil unserer heutigen Welt. Und in dieser Welt macht sich eine junge Kuh namens Elsie auf, etwas an ihrem Schicksal zu ändern. Gemeinsam mit einem zum Judentum konvertierten Schwein und dem wild plappernden Truthahn Tom begibt sie sich auf eine Abenteuerreise, in deren Verlauf der Leser viel Wahres über die Menschen erfährt. Eine saukuhle Fabel, geschrieben von einem saucoolen Autor. Elsie ist eine junge Kuh, und eine glückliche dazu! Sie verbringt ihre langen, ereignislosen Tage mit Essen, Schlummern und Plaudereien mit ihrer besten Freundin Mallory. Doch eines Nachts schleichen sich Elsie und Mallory von ihrer Weide und müssen durch das Fenster des Bauernhofs mit ansehen, was der leuchtende Schachtelgott (so nennen sie den Fernseher) über »industrielle Mastbetriebe« offenbart. Elsies heile Welt ist in ihren Grundfesten erschüttert. Für sie gibt es nur eine Lösung: Sie muss in eine bessere, sichere Welt flüchten. Und so bildet sich ein kunterbuntes Trio, bestehend aus Elsie, Jerry – Verzeihung, Shalom –, einem thoralesenden Schwein, das vor Kurzem zum Judentum konvertiert ist, und Tom, einem (zumindest in seinen Augen) charmanten Truthahn, der nicht fliegen, dafür aber mit dem Schnabel ein iPhone bedienen kann. Die drei begeben sich auf eine abenteuerliche Reise, in der sie eine Menge über die Welt, in der wir leben, erfahren.

„Klonk!“ So klang es, als Zwergenaxt auf Trollkeule traf, damals, bei der historischen Schlacht von Koomtal. Und wenn Sam Mumm, Kommandeur der Stadtwache von Ankh-Morpork, nicht schleunigst den Mord an einem stadtbekannten Zwerg und Aufrührer aufklärt, droht sich die Geschichte zu wiederholen. Diesmal aber direkt vor seiner Haustür. Also geht Sam Mumm noch der winzigsten Spur nach und stellt sich tapfer der Dunkelheit entgegen, während allenthalben Fanatiker die Kriegstrommeln rühren ... • 2008 feiert die Scheibenwelt ihr 25-jähriges Jubiläum und Terry Pratchett seinen 60. Geburtstag mit einer Tour durch Europa.

"From the papers she left behind, a picture emerges of a woman who had firm control over her own life. We are dealing here with an Egyptian woman in the fifth century BCE who owned houses and land, worked in the necropolis as a professional choachyte, and most probably did more business of which we are uinaware. In fact, what we have here is an unprecedented and privileged peek into the life of an ancient Egyptian girl next door that will never make it into the official history books"--Publisher description.

Warning: Using this book could be hazardous to your ego! The slogans it contains are designed to awaken the heart and cultivate love and kindness toward others. They are revolutionary in that practicing them fosters abandonment of personal territory in relating to others and in understanding the world as it is. The fifty-nine provocative slogans presented here—each with a commentary by the Tibetan meditation master Chögyam Trungpa—have been used by Tibetan Buddhists for eight centuries to help meditation students remember and focus on important principles and practices of mind training. They emphasize meeting the ordinary situations of life with intelligence and compassion under all circumstances. Slogans include, "Don't be swayed by external circumstances," "Be grateful to everyone," and "Always maintain only a joyful mind." This edition contains a new foreword by Pema Chödrön.
