It is the story of the Galactic Empire, crumbling after twelve thousand years of rule. And it is the particular story of psycho-historian Hari Seldon, the only man who can see the horrors the future has in store: a dark age of ignorance, barbarism and violence that will last for thirty thousand years. Gathering together a band of courageous men and women, Seldon leads them to a hidden location at the edge of the galaxy where he hopes they can preserve human knowledge and wisdom against all who would destroy them. Asimov went on to add numerous sequels and prequels to the trilogy, building up what has become known as the Foundation series, but it is the original three books, first published in the Forties and Fifties, which remain the most powerful, imaginative and breathtaking.

An intimate narrative history of porcelain, structured around five journeys through landscapes where porcelain was dreamed about, fired, refined, collected, and coveted. Extraordinary new nonfiction, a gripping blend of history and memoir, by the author of the award-winning and bestselling international sensation, " The ""Hare with the Amber Eyes." In "The White Road," bestselling author and artist Edmund de Waal gives us an intimate narrative history of his lifelong obsession with porcelain, or "white gold." A potter who has been working with porcelain for more than forty years, de Waal describes how he set out on five journeys to places where porcelain was dreamed about, refined, collected and coveted-and that would help him understand the clay's mysterious allure. From his studio in London, he starts by travelling to three "white hills"-sites in China, Germany and England that are key to porcelain's creation. But his search eventually takes him around the globe and reveals more than a history of cups and figurines; rather, he is forced to confront some of the darkest moments of twentieth-century history. Part memoir, part history, part detective story, "The White Road" chronicles a global obsession with alchemy, art, wealth, craft, and purity. In a sweeping yet intimate style that recalls" The Hare with the Amber Eyes," de Waal gives us a singular understanding of "the spectrum of porcelain" and the mapping of desire.

Conde Nast launched the careers of many great photographers. The discovery of most of the biggest names in fashion photography and the nurturing of their talent into full bloom can rightly be credited to that visionary publisher. Conde Nast himself was gifted at spotting future stars, and, by surrounding himself with the very best and most creative, he placed Vogue magazine, along with other titles such as Glamour, at the forefront of the photographic avant-garde and propelled them to positions of great social and cultural influence. This glorious volume, the result of unprecedented access to the empire's archives, reaches back to 1910 to demonstrate this history of excellence. A constellation of luminaries, legends, and stars, the list of photographers included in this treasury is truly breathtaking. Edward Steichen, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton, Patrick Demarchelier, Ellen von Unwerth, and Mario Testino are just some of the figures who, working with masterful art directors, created a legacy that left its mark on the history of photography and is being built upon in the present day. Chronologically arranged with beautiful reproductions throughout, this stunning volume will become an important addition to the libraries of fashionistas of all ages and tastes.

Sarah Wilson is an intrepid solver of problems and investigator of how to live a better life. For five years, she has made it her mission to help the world to quit sugar, after discovering the health dangers of this ubiquitous and addictive ingredient. In her new book, she turns her attention to another big problem: that of anxiety. Sarah has been an anxiety sufferer her whole life. She describes herself as 'all striving and no arriving.' As in the early days of the sugar experiment, Sarah makes herself a subject of one, and starts investigating. She looks at the triggers and the treatments, the fashions and the fads. She reads widely and interviews fellow sufferers, mental health experts, philosophers and, even, the Dalai Lama. She pulls at the thread of accepted definitions of anxiety, and unravels the notion that it is a difficult, dangerous disease that must be medicated into submission. Ultimately, she re-frames anxiety as a spiritual quest rather than a burdensome affliction. She describes it as a state of yearning, one that will lead us closer to the things in life that really matter. Practical and poetic, wise and funny, this is a small book with a big heart. It will encourage the myriad sufferers of the world's most common mental illness to feel not just better about their condition but delighted by the possibilities it offers for a richer, fuller life.

Directly oriented towards real practical application, this book develops both the basic theoretical framework of extreme value models and the statistical inferential techniques for using these models in practice. Intended for statisticians and non-statisticians alike, the theoretical treatment is elementary, with heuristics often replacing detailed mathematical proof. Most aspects of extreme modeling techniques are covered, including historical techniques (still widely used) and contemporary techniques based on point process models. A wide range of worked examples, using genuine datasets, illustrate the various modeling procedures and a concluding chapter provides a brief introduction to a number of more advanced topics, including Bayesian inference and spatial extremes. All the computations are carried out using S-PLUS, and the corresponding datasets and functions are available via the Internet for readers to recreate examples for themselves. An essential reference for students and researchers in statistics and disciplines such as engineering, finance and environmental science, this book will also appeal to practitioners looking for practical help in solving real problems. Stuart Coles is Reader in Statistics at the University of Bristol, UK, having previously lectured at the universities of Nottingham and Lancaster. In 1992 he was the first recipient of the Royal Statistical Society's research prize. He has published widely in the statistical literature, principally in the

Those not put off by its audacious title and cheeky tone will find How to Get Filthy, Stinking Rich and Still Have Time for Great Sex really is filled with some helpful basic information for prospective entrepreneurs. Herb Kay, a self-made rich guy with chutzpah to spare, insists slow-and-steady and get-rich-quick approaches to financial freedom are both losers. His recommendation? Self-employment, which never limits potential earnings. Not a particularly novel concept, to be sure, but Kay does offer supportive advice in this flip, business-cum-lifestyle guide that may hit home with those who dismiss similar books as either maddeningly tame or hopelessly optimistic. There are some pretty obvious suggestions here (identify needs in an area where you have strong personal interest and then develop new ways to fill them, for example) but they're often supported by helpful advice that reflects Kay's personal experience (i.e., avoid ordinary consumer banks and big national chains in favor of smaller business institutions where top executives themselves can explain how their services fit your needs). As for the title's "great sex," Kay eventually admits this is just "a metaphor for anything you enjoy doing away from the office." Alas, another myth shattered. --Howard Rothman

In 1962 Mick Jagger was a bright, well-scrubbed boy (planning a career in the civil service), while Keith Richards was learning how to smoke and to swivel a six-shooter. Add the mercurial Brian Jones (who'd been effectively run out of Cheltenham for theft, multiple impregnations and playing blues guitar) and the wryly opinionated Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts, and the potential was obvious. During the 1960s and 70s the Rolling Stones were the polarising figures in Britain, admired in some quarters for their flamboyance, creativity and salacious lifestyles, and reviled elsewhere for the same reasons. Confidently expected never to reach 30 they are now approaching their seventies and, in 2012, will have been together for 50 years. In The Rolling Stones, Christopher Sandford tells the human drama at the centre of the Rolling Stones story. Sandford has carried out interviews with those close to the Stones, family members (including Mick's parents), the group's fans and contemporaries - even examined their previously unreleased FBI files. Like no other book before The Rolling Stones will make sense of the rich brew of clever invention and opportunism, of talent, good fortune, insecurity, self-destructiveness, and of drugs, sex and other excess, that made the Stones who they are.

"The future," as the author William Gibson once noted, "is already here. It's just unevenly distributed." WHIPLASH is a postcard from that future. The world is more complex and volatile today than at any other time in our history. The tools of our modern existence are getting faster, cheaper, and smaller at an exponential rate, just as billions of strangers around the world are suddenly just one click or tweet or post away from each other. When these two revolutions joined, an explosive force was unleashed that is transforming every aspect of society, from business to culture and from the public sphere to our most private moments. Such periods of dramatic change have always produced winners and losers. The future will run on an entirely new operating system. It's a major upgrade, but it comes with a steep learning curve. The logic of a faster future oversets the received wisdom of the past, and the people who succeed will be the ones who learn to think differently. In WHIPLASH, Joi Ito and Jeff Howe distill that logic into nine organizing principles for navigating and surviving this tumultuous period. From strategically embracing risks rather than mitigating them (or preferring "risk over safety") to drawing inspiration and innovative ideas from your existing networks (or supporting "pull over push"), this dynamic blueprint can help you rethink your approach to all facets of your organization. Filled with incredible case studies and leading-edge research and philosophies from the MIT Media Lab and beyond, WHIPLASH will help you adapt and succeed in this unpredictable world.

One of India s two greatest epics, the Ramayana pervades the country s moral and cultural consciousness. For generations it has served as a bedtime story for Indian children, while at the same time engaging the interest of philosophers and theologians. Now this magnificent translation makes the monumental work available to a new audience. Believed to have been composed by Valmiki sometime between the eighth and sixth centuries BC, the Ramayana tells the tragic and magical story of Rama, the prince of Ayodhya, an incarnation of Lord Visnu, born to rid the earth of the terrible demon Ravana. Exiled for fourteen years because of his stepmother s fit of jealousy on the eve of his coronation, Rama enters the forests of Dandaka with his beautiful wife Sita and devoted brother Laksmana. Sita is abducted from the forest by Ravana who takes her to his isolated kingdom on the far side of the southern ocean. The two brothers set out to rescue her and, along the way, make an alliance with a dispossessed monkey, king Sugriva. At the end of a bloody war Ravana is killed and Sita, reunited with her husband, and victorious Rama returns to Ayodhya to claim the throne that is rightfully his. An idealized heroic tale ending with the inevitable triumph of good over evil, the Ramayana is also an intensely personal story of family relationships, love and loss, duty and honour, of harem intrigue, petty jealousies and destructive ambitions. All this played out in a universe pop

One of Guitar World magazine's Top 15 rock books of 2011.He was born Eric Patrick Clapton, but you can just call him "Slowhand." Over the years, fans of Eric Clapton have debated the high points of an epic career in blues and rock ‘n' roll spanning nearly fifty years. Which song best epitomizes Clapton's skills as a songwriter? Which eraâ??the Yardbirds, Cream or his solo workâ??stands about above the rest? Where does Clapton rank on the list of all-time guitar greats? Whatever your opinions may be, one this is for sure: few artists have contributed as much to the world of music as the six-string magician from Ripley. Put simply, one look at Clapton's five-decade-long résumé is enough to blow any rock ‘n' roll junkie's mind. It includes time with the Yardbirds, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, the Plastic Ono Band, Bonnie & Delaney, Derek and the Dominoes, and his own solo discography, not to mention his Crossroads festivals and appearances at the Concert for Bangladesh, the Last Waltz, Live Aid, the Secret Policeman's Other Ball, and so much more.

Pastors and church leaders, as well as younger evangelical and emerging church groups, will find this last book in the respected Ancient-Future series an invaluable resource for authentic worship.

Detailed information is provided on each Element's specific attributes, associations, resonances and gifts, and anatomical illustrations are included for further guidance. An invaluable reference book for practitioners and students of Chinese Medicine who hope to become better practitioners to others, the book also provides the means to become a practitioner to yourself.

Finance is a topic that requires much computation, and in today's business world that computation is done almost entirely using Excel software. Despite this, existing finance textbooks continue to rely heavily on hand calculators. Business school students--whose background in Excel software is often weak when they come into finance courses--find that when they leave the academic environment they have to relearn both finance and the software. Addressing this issue, Principles of Finance with Excel is the only introductory finance text that comprehensively integrates the program into the teaching and practice of finance. Offering exceptional resources for students and instructors, the book combines classroom-tested pedagogy with the powerful functions of Excel software. Author Simon Benninga--one of the most recognized names in financial modeling--shows students how spreadsheets provide new and deeper insights into financial decision making.The second edition of Principles of Finance with Excel covers the same topics as standard financial textbooks--including portfolios, capital asset pricing models, stock and bond valuation, capital structure and dividend policy, and option pricing--and can therefore be used in any introductory course.

Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet's rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents. Rebellion is in Flynn's blood. His sister died in the original uprising against the powerful corporate conglomerate that rules Avon with an iron fist.

But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion. Desperate for any advantage against the military occupying his home, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner.

"Swimming Studies" is a wonderful, unique book from the writer and artist Leanne Shapton, author of "Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry", along with her artwork. As a teenager, Leanne Shapton trained for the Olympic swimming trials; now an artist, she is still drawn inexorably to swimming, in pools and on beaches across the world. What do you with an all-absorbing activity once it's past its relevance, and yet you can't quite give it up? Is it possible to find a new purpose for its rigours and focus? "Swimming Studies" is an original, meditative work that explores what it is like to move from a world of competition and discipline to one of recreation and introspection. Giving a fascinating glimpse into the private realms of swimming, and drawing, Shapton tells an intimate story of suburban adolescence, family ties, and the solitary underwater moments that now ground her artistic habits. "Whenever I come across something of Leanne Shapton's, I feel like I have found a hidden treasure". (Amy Sedaris).

<i>Mauve </i>is the story of a man who invented a colour, and in the process transformed the world around him.<P>Before 1856, the colour in our lives derived from animals, minerals or plants. Clothing, paint, print - their reds and blacks came from insects or molluscs, roots or leaves, and dyeing was painstaking and expensive. One royal procession required ten million dead insects. But in 1856 a chemist called William Perkin discovered a way to mass-produce colour in a factory.<P>Perkin is honoured with the odd plaque and bust in colleges and chemistry clubs, but is otherwise a forgotten man. This is his story, and the story of how the reputation of a pioneering genius endures. Above all, it is a fascinating tale of how the birth of a colour set in motion an extraordinary scientific leap forward that would change the world forever.
