Summary

An anthropomorphic hipster cockroach is on the cutting-edge of American comic-strip humor. La Cucaracha (aka Cuco Rocha) and his pals voice the concerns and observations of the Latino-American community with an edgy, insightful wit.Through La Cucaracha, creator Lalo Alcaraz makes blunt social commentary both hard-hitting and hilarious. The result is not just a pleasure, but also a craving. The strong undercurrent of modern Latino themes and issues adds a sharp layer of meaning to the humor. In one strip, an immigrant bartender has listened to two customers rant, "I'm telling ya, there's too many immigrants pouring into this country." When one of the customers asks for another drink the bartender declares, "I'm an immigrant, and guess what? I'm not pouring!"This first of perceptive La Cucaracha humor will delight and gratify all audiences that appreciate intelligent, progressive, deeply amusing comics.

    DISCLAIMER: This is NOT the Official Book. This is a Summary & it does NOT Accompany the Official Book. 
    In this era-defining novel that Stephen King heralded as the "Catch-22 of early feminism," we follow Zott from the lab to the kitchen. The book highlights the strikingly unscientific attitude towards gender equality amongst her male colleagues, save for Calvin Evans, a Nobel-prize nominated intellect who becomes smitten with her sharp mind, sparking undeniable chemistry. 
    Life's unpredictability leads Zott from being a single mother to a reluctant star of the beloved cooking show, "Supper at Six." Her unconventional cooking methods quickly become revolutionary, and as her influence expands, she dares women to challenge the status quo. 
    A perfect blend of humor, sharp observations, and a stellar cast of characters, "Lessons in Chemistry" is as captivating and vibrant as its protagonist. It's more than a novel - it's a testament to female empowerment in a time of change.

    Immanuel Kant laid the foundations of modern Western thought. Every subsequent major philosopher owes a profound debt to Kant's attempts to delimit human reason as an appropriate object of philosophical enquiry. And yet, Kant's relentless systematic formalism made him a controversial figure in the history of the philosophy that he helped to shape.
    Introducing Kant focuses on the three critiques of Pure Reason, Practical Reason and Judgement. It describes Kant's main formal concepts: the relation of mind to sensory experience, the question of freedom and the law and, above all, the revaluation of metaphysics. Kant emerges as a diehard rationalist yet also a Romantic, deeply committed to the power of the sublime to transform experience. The illustrated guide explores the paradoxical nature of the pre-eminent philosopher of the Enlightenment, his ideas and explains the reasons for his undiminished importance in contemporary philosophical debates.
