    This is a book about TRUTH—and all the ways we try to avoid it—from the best selling author of Humans: A Brief History of How We F*cked It All Up. 
    We live in a "post-truth" world, we're told. But was there ever really a golden age of truth-telling? Or have people been lying, fibbing and just plain bullsh*tting since the beginning of time? 
    Tom Phillips, editor of a leading independent fact-checking organization, deals with this question every day. In Truth, he tells the story of how we humans have spent history lying to each other—and ourselves—about everything from business to politics to plain old geography. Along the way, he chronicles the world's oldest customer service complaint, the Great Moon Hoax of 1835 and the surprisingly dishonest career of Benjamin Franklin. 
    Sharp, witty and with a clear-eyed view of humanity's checkered past, Truth reveals why people lie—and how we can cut through the bullsh*t.

    “The definitive solutions-based book for all those questioning why hunger still exists when there is such an abundance of food.” —The Huffington Post, “Food Tank’s 2015 Recommended Fall Reading List”   From bestselling authors Frances Moore Lappé and Joseph Collins comes the twenty-first century’s authoritative book on world hunger. Lappé and Collins refute the myths that prevent us from addressing the root causes of hunger across the globe. World Hunger: 10 Myths draws on extensive new research to offer fresh, often startling, insights about tough questions—from climate change and population growth to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the role of US foreign aid, and more.   Brimming with little-known but life-changing examples of solutions to hunger worldwide, this myth-busting book argues that sustainable agriculture can feed the world, that we can end nutritional deprivation affecting one-quarter of the world’s people, and that most in the Global North have more in common with hungry people than they thought. For novices and scholars alike, World Hunger: 10 Myths will inspire a whole new generation of hunger-fighters.   “World Hunger . . . should become not only a book for study, but a guide to action.” —Noam Chomsky

    There are many fine scripts of quantum chemistry and physics in print at this time. So the question can be raised as to why we would write another script, especially one focusing on the smaller discipline of quantum chemistry. When we began this project years ago, we felt that we were a unique juncture in quantum chemistry and technology and that, immodestly, we had a unique perspective to offer to students. 
    Much of the mainstream of quantum chemistry is now deeply tied to quantum physics, in a cooperative endeavor called “quantum science.” At the same time, there is a large, growing, and vital community of people who use the applications of quantum chemistry to tackle wide-ranging set of problems in the biological, physical and environmental sciences, engineering, medicine and so on. 
    We thought it was important to bring together, in a single volume, a rigorous, detailed perspective on both the “pure” and “applied” aspects of quantum chemistry. As such, one might find more detail about any particular subject than one might like. We hope this encourages instructors to summarize the script material and present it in a manner most suitable to a particular audience. The amount of material contained in this book is too much for a one quarter or one semester course and a bit too little for a yearlong course. Instructors can pick and choose which material seems most suitable for their course.

In the past few years, the world has seen the tendency towards favoring decentralized systems, rather than depending on a central authority. The infrastructure that is allowing this revolution to take place is called blockchain. What is it?

With his flawless style and his profound knowledge, Corey managed to put together a simple yet efficient approach to introduce people to the world of blockchain and cryptos.
