Why can’t we tickle ourselves? When can you drive through the end of a rainbow? What would happen if you fell into a black hole? Is it ever possible to hurt your brain by thinking too much? Most of the great discoveries in science begin with a question. In this bestselling scientific tour of answers both cosmic and quotidian, science columnist and researcher Robert Matthews tackles an array of baffling conundrums, delivering entertaining and enlightening answers from the worlds of biology, physics, meteorology, neuroscience, and much more. From the curious mathematics of odd socks to the real “string theory” mystery – how does string acquire all those unwanted knots? – Matthews reveals the science that proves once and for all that no question is ever too trivial. Robert Matthews is a visiting lecturer in science at Aston University, in Birmingham, England. He has published pioneering research in fields ranging from code-breaking to predicting coincidences, and won the internationally renowned Ig Nobel Prize in Physics for his studies of Murphy’s Law, including the reason why toast so often lands butter-side down. An award-winning science writer, he has contributed to many newspapers and magazines world-wide, and is currently science consultant for Focus magazine, a flagship BBC publication. His book 25 Big Ideas: The Science that’s Changing our World (9781851683918) is also published by Oneworld.

Spider is gaunt, threadbare, unnerved by everything from his landlady to the smell of gas. He tells us his story in a storm of beautiful language that slowly reveals itself as a fiendishly layered construction of truth and illusion. With echoes of Beckett, Poe, and Paul Bowles, Spider is a tale of horror and madness, storytelling and skepticism, a novel whose dizzying style lays bare the deepest layers of subconscious terror.

The “extraordinary” (Booklist) novel of one man’s quest to find the source of his nightmare and to reverse it before he becomes…nothing at all. This #1 national bestseller from Stephen King, writing as Richard Bachman, “pulsates with evil…it will have you on the edge of your seat” (Publishers Weekly). “You can’t do anything…It’s gone too far. You understand, Halleck? Too…far.” Attorney Billy Halleck seriously enjoys living his life of upper-class excess. He’s got it all­—an expensive home in Connecticut, a loving family…and fifty extra pounds that his doctor repeatedly warns will be the death of him. Then, in a moment of carelessness, Halleck commits vehicular manslaughter when he strikes a jaywalking old woman crossing the street. But Halleck has some powerful local connections, and gets off with a slap on the wrist…much to the fury of the woman’s mysterious and ancient father, who exacts revenge with a single word: “Thinner.” Now a terrified Halleck finds the weight once so difficult to shed dropping effortlessly—and rapidly—by the week. Soon there will be nothing left of Billy Halleck…unless he can somehow locate the source of his living nightmare and reverse what’s happened to him before he utterly wastes away…

Grow up. Be a man. We've all heard that before, and we often get defensive when we hear it. And as modern men we often live our lives on the defensive - struggling in relationships, on the job and often feeling alone to figure it out ourselves. In the pages of this book, Owen Marcus leads us along an enlightening path toward the authentic self, one that embraces and respects gender and masculinity. Marcus reveals that men aren't immature or broken; they just need clarity, purpose, connection and the support of other men. Grow Up takes you through 9 stages of growing up where you will discover: Why professional success alone does not fulfill What may be missing and how to find it How we inadvertently self-sabotage and how to stop How to honor and attract women as your authentic self How to earn and maintain the respect of your peers How understanding your own Masculine Emotional Intelligence will lead you to a happier, more fulfilling life Owen Marcus has spent years studying and developing effective learning systems for men. Grow Up is the first time the lessons of his group trainings, lectures, seminars, and personal experience have been compiled into a single manuscript. Grow Up is not a "self-help book"; it's a playbook on how to live your own life. Imagine a life where you can dream, love, create and live in the moment with an ease you never thought possible. Take this book home, and watch the unfolding of the remarkable man in you.

A 2015 Michael L. Printz Honor Book Winner of the 2014 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Fiction "Raunchy, bizarre, smart and compelling." --Rolling Stone “Grasshopper Jungle is simultaneously creepy and hilarious. Reminds me of Kurt Vonnegut’s in “Slaughterhouse Five,” in the best sense.” --New York Times Book Review In the small town of Ealing, Iowa, Austin and his best friend, Robby, have accidentally unleashed an unstoppable army. An army of horny, hungry, six-foot-tall praying mantises that only want to do two things. This is the truth. This is history. It’s the end of the world. And nobody knows anything about it. You know what I mean. Funny, intense, complex, and brave, Grasshopper Jungle brilliantly weaves together everything from testicle-dissolving genetically modified corn to the struggles of recession-era, small-town America in this groundbreaking coming-of-age stunner.
