Ein Roman »mit einem ganz großen Herzen« Daily Express In einer regnerischen Freitagnacht wird Andrew Martin, Professor für Mathematik in Cambridge, aufgegriffen, als er nackt eine Autobahn entlangwandert. Professor Martin ist nicht mehr er selbst. Ein Wesen mit überlegener Intelligenz und von einem weit entfernten Stern hat von ihm Besitz ergriffen. Dieser neue Andrew ist nicht begeistert von seiner neuen Existenz. Er hat eine denkbar negative Meinung von den Menschen. Jeder weiß schließlich, dass sie zu Egoismus, übermäßigem Ehrgeiz und Gewalttätigkeit neigen. Doch andererseits: Kann eine Lebensform, die Dinge wie Weißwein und Erdnussbutter erfunden hat, wirklich grundschlecht und böse sein? Und was sind das für seltsame Gefühle, die ihn überkommen, wenn er Debussy hört oder Isobel, der Frau des Professors, in die Augen blickt?

In Save the Humans, award-winning documentary filmmaker Rob Stewart tells his captivating life-story-so-far—from self-professed “animal nerd” to one of the world’s leading environmental activists, from a person whose sole focus was saving his beloved sharks to a mission to save us all. Rob Stewart has always been in love with creatures, the odder or more misunderstood the better. His passion for all living things, including Satan, his 7-foot-long, 80-pound pet water monitor, has led him around the world, as a university student studying zoology in Kenya, as a wildlife photographer in Madagascar and Southeast Asia, and ultimately as a documentary filmmaker in the Pacific shooting his innovative and award-winning documentary Sharkwater. Risking arrest and mafia reprisal in Costa Rica, nearly losing a leg to flesh-eating disease in Panama and getting lost at sea in the remote Galapagos Islands, Stewart is living proof that the best way to create change in the world is to dive in over your head. His documentary sparked shark fin bans around the world, but his story doesn’t end with saving sharks. Stewart has set his sights on a slightly bigger goal—saving the human species. He has criss-crossed the globe to meet with the visionaries, entrepreneurs, scientists and children working to solve our environmental crises, and his message is clear: the revolution to save humanity has started and the only thing missing is you!

Lernen Sie die Radleys kennen, eine total verbissene Familie Auf den ersten Blick wirken sie wie eine ganz normale Familie: Vater Peter ist Arzt, Mutter Helen kümmert sich um die beiden pubertierenden Kinder Clara und Rowan. Doch warum erstickt Peter fast am thailändischen Salat, warum nimmt jedes Tier vor Clara Reißaus und warum kann Rowan nachts nicht schlafen und hat trotz Lichtschutzfaktor 60 Probleme mit der Haut? Das Geheimnis der Radleys ist so unfassbar wie offensichtlich: Sie sind abstinente Vampire! Vor diesem Augenblick hat sich Helen Radley ein Leben lang gefürchtet: Sie und ihr Mann müssen ihren Kindern endlich sagen, was mit ihnen los ist, nachdem ihre Tochter Clara in Notwehr kräftig zugebissen hat – jetzt gibt es eine Leiche und ein dickes Problem. Ihr Mann Peter ruft gegen ihren Willen seinen Bruder, den charismatischen und ganz und gar nicht abstinenten Will zur Hilfe. Während die Kinder noch zu verstehen versuchen, was diese Enthüllung für ihr weiteres Leben bedeutet, sich Helen um Schadensbegrenzung bemüht und Peter darüber nachdenkt, ob nicht doch ein gelegentlicher Tropfen Blut dem Wohlbefinden förderlich ist, bricht Will in die ländliche Idylle ein und stiftet zusätzlichen Unfrieden. Zwar kann er zunächst die Polizei von der Unschuld Claras überzeugen, doch dann erwachen neue Lüste, die die ganze Familie an den Rand der Katastrophe bringen ... Matt Haig hat ein Kunststück vollbracht: Er hat einen intelligenten, witzigen und spannenden Vampirroman geschrieben, der selbst diejenigen, die nicht zu den Fans dieses Genres zählen, von der ersten Seite an in den Bann zieht und durch die Kapitel jagen lässt wie weiland Christopher Lee als Graf Dracula auf einem Pferd durch Transsilvanien.

Der Fotograf Brandon Stanton begann im Sommer 2010 das ehrgeizige Projekt, ein fotografisches Porträt von New York City zu erschaffen. Aus den daraus entstandenen Fotos und Interviews wurde der Blog Humans of New York mit aktuell über 14 Millionen Fans auf Facebook. Das 2013 veröffentlichte Buch Humans of New York, das auf dem Blog basierte, schoss sofort an die Spitze der New York Times-Bestsellerliste und blieb dort für über 45 Wochen. Nun ist Brandon Stanton zurück, mit dem Buch, auf das alle gewartet haben: Humans of New York: Die besten Storys. Seit Stanton angefangen hatte, Menschen in den Straßen von New York zu interviewen, war der Dialog mit ihnen genauso detailliert, faszinierend und bewegend gewesen wie die Fotos selbst. Humans of New York: Die besten Storys zeigt völlig neue Personen in großartigen Fotos mit längeren, tiefergehenden Geschichten, die mit noch mehr Offenheit überraschen und uns aufs Neue erstaunen.

But things are never easy for a bird among the humans, especially when his lizard best friend drags him into the search for a missing stripper.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

The rapid growth of our digital world has brought huge advantages - access to information anywhere, at any time, and the ability to communicate with colleagues, family and friends around the globe in real-time. But in other ways, the same technology has also disconnected us. Computers risk becoming less of a productivity tool and more like information firehoses, drowning us in a deluge of data that can keep us from doing meaningful, real work. The devices in our hands connect us like never before, but they vie for our attention to the point where they are beginning to disconnect us from the real world. In this book, Dave Coplin, Chief Envisioning Officer at Microsoft UK, argues that right now it feels like the machines are taking over but if we stop thinking about the digital deluge as a problem and instead see it as an incredible opportunity we will be able to redress the balance. Technology offers our society so much but it is up to us, the humans, to rise to that potential.

This is an interesting tale, so keep your mind open to all possibilities. So please enjoy as we find out how the twists and turns in the lives of Evyonne and Addum lead to an unlikely union between two people and the intense and true love that they find in each other. This helped them stay united when they found out that they were linked in the most unbelievable way to space travellers (or aliens), who were known as the Gret race of beings by all others who roamed the known universe as they did and how the lovers had to convince the Grets to stop the destruction of the Earth and all life on it. Their task made even harder, as the Grets had contempt for the continuously warring Humans, who had only ever managed to rack up eight days of world peace in the whole time that the Grets had been taking more notice of the Blue Planet (or the Earth as the Humans called it) ever since the Blue Planet had cooled enough to start to support life. That eventually included the Humans. So the questions for Evyonne and Addum were as follows: Was their love for all life and each other enough? Could they really convince Joewell, the elder of the Grets, that the Earth and all life should not be destroyed? So read on to see how the amazing symbiotic love affair between two such seemingly different people, whose love breached all the boundaries, was able to change the way the Grets viewed the Humans. But could the Humans change their warring ways and realise the truth that ‘peace is cool’?

He must help preserve the union of humanity's colonies, in the wake of a terrible revelation. For years the Colonial Union has protected its citizens from the dangerous universe around them.

Now, other alien races have formed a new alliance against the Union. And they've invited the incensed people of Earth to join them. Managing the Colonial Union's survival will take all the political cunning and finesse its diplomats can muster.
