Every reader will welcome Jake Krakauer, the chief figure in Louis Zara's highly readable first novel. He is kin to all immigrants who cleared a wilderness and expanded this republic. Here he burgeons with life and hope as he struggles to bring the world to his feet. Admiring him, the author pours out his dramatic success with gusto as well as with amused detachment. His realistic characters inspired Mary McCarthy to hail his Blessed Is the Man as "One of the Nation's Notables of 1935." For Zara, that early recognition encouraged him to continue with novels like Give Us This Day, Some for the Glory, This Land Is Ours, and others that have won him national acclaim.

Everybody is a shopper – a fact no company can ignore! Based on results of never publicly seen real-world research, using ethnographic and neuroscience studies on some of the world’s leading brands and retailers, this is an insider’s expose on how shoppers choose and buy brands (often without knowing how they do) and how brands can promote themselves. The author is one of the world’s leading analysts of shopper behaviour. This book is the result of 20 years of pioneering research (from filming shoppers in-store to brain scanning) into how people around the world really shop. It explores what we actually do rather than what we think we do, how we really choose and make decisions to buy, and what really works for brands trying to persuade us to buy.

Zara and Ella were both two weeks late for the start of the school year. Ever since then they've been best friends. They're always fooling around finding out the star signs of boys they fancy, reading out their horoscopes and playing games to discover the initial of the boy they're going to marry - just things to pass the time and take their minds off exams and tests. Ella's never really taken it all very seriously, but then Zara starts to act a bit differently - dressing like a Goth and experimenting with her new-found spiritual side and psychic powers in order to get them noticed by the popular crowd in their class and earn them both a bit of kudos. But little does Ella know how far Zara is really prepared to go - even betraying their friendship - to get the attention she clearly seeks. Mary Hooper writes with haunting accuracy about the manipulative mind games and power struggles that go on within groups of friends at school. Zara is a brilliantly observed account of school life for teenage girls as well as being a book that one simply burns through - pacy, juicy and lively writing about issues that horrify and fascinate and resonate all at once.

Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect Facebook friends. It's little wonder, since she's had a fairly rough life. Her father left when she was a baby, her stepfather just died and her mother's almost given up - in fact, she's sent her to live with her grandmother in cold and sleepy Maine to 'keep Zara safe'. Zara doesn't think she's in danger; she thinks her mother just can't cope. Zara's wrong. The man she sees everywhere - the tall, creepy guy who points at her from the side of the road - is not a figment of her imagination. He's a pixie. But not the cute, sweet kind with little wings. Maine's got a whole assortment of unbelievable creatures. And they seem to need something - something from Zara . . .

Through a rare autobiographical act, Zara Yacob, who acquainted himself with the teachings of the Catholic Church, becomes the first self-conscious founder of a philosophical tradition in Ethiopia. Indeed, it is a mild exaggeration to assert that it is Zara Yacob who gave the continent of Africa an original autobiography, something that was until then confined to literate traditions outside Africa. His treatise is a powerful example of self-presentation, clearly and masterfully expressed in a captivating literary style.

In the course of this work he corresponded with the Nobel prize winners Paul A. Samuelson and Robert M. Solow and that correspondence is reproduced in this book, prefaced by Professor Samuelson. This is a different macroeconomics. The key to Bernácer's pioneering thought is that financial speculation is the root cause of economic crises. With this thesis he anticipated the crisis we are now immersed in by almost a century, line by line, and concept by concept.
