Summary

Ageing is inevitable – but getting 'old' is optional! We can make a difference to our ageing process – just as we have to learn to grow up, so we have to learn to grow old. 
 
Here is a route map we can all follow to find a way through the changes we face as we age, and a toolkit of exercises to help us follow our chosen path and fulfil our potential. 
  
Ageing has got a really bad press but is it really as bad as much of the media make out? And is there anything we can do to make our later years happier and healthier? In this handbook Guy Robertson assembles the case for the defense and explodes some myths along the way. Getting older is not all bad! Indeed the reality is much more positive than many of us could imagine.  
  
 Find here ten steps that anyone can take to improve the likelihood of living a happy and satisfying life in old age. Research shows that how we think about ageing can have a very significant impact on our health and wellbeing in later life. Concentrating on the psychological and emotional aspects of ageing, these clear practical exercises will empower the reader to engage in a programme of personal change.

    INTRODUCING guide to the hugely influential German thinker. Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel is one of the greatest thinkers of all time. No other philosopher has had such a profound impact on the ideas and political events of the 20th century. Hegel's influential writings on philosophy, politics, history and art are parts of a larger systematic whole. They are also among the most difficult in the entire literature of philosophy. Introducing Hegel guides us through a spectacular system of thought which aimed to make sense of history. The book also provides new perspectives on contemporary postmodern debates about 'metanarratives' (Lyotard) and the 'end of history' (Fukuyama). It is an ideal introduction to this crucial figure in the history of philosophy, and is indispensable for anyone trying to understand such key modern thinkers as Marx, Lacan, Satre and Adorno.

    I made this book thinking of you, of how difficult the life of an architecture student is in all dimensions. Ive been there.
    In it you will find great hints and tips on what to expect from the course, what the teachers are really asking, how to manage your time, and how to improve your cultural know-how, as well as to find why youre taking this course and how to remake yourself as a person. I will be encouraging you to go all the way to graduation day. You will learn to deal with failure and mistakes, to stay focus on your target, about the sacrifices that the course requires for you to succeed, to be disciplined, and most of all, what is architecture all about.
    Ive also added a terminology for architecture so that you become acquainted with the architecture jargon and enrich your knowledge.
