    Merriam-Webster, move over! 
    Until now, no English dictionary ever found the fun or the fascination in revealing the meanings of letters. One-Letter Words, a Dictionary illuminates the more than 1,000 surprising definitions associated with each letter in the English alphabet. For instance, Conley uncovers seventy-six distinct uses of the letter X, the most versatile, most printed letter in the English language. Using facts, figures, quotations, and etymologies, the author provides a complete and enjoyable understanding of the one-letter word. 
    Conley teaches us that each letter's many different meanings span multiple subjects, including science—B denotes a blood type and also is a symbol for boron on the periodic table of elements—and history—in the Middle Ages, B was branded on a blasphemer's forehead. With the letter A, he reminds us that A is not only a bra size, but also a musical note. 
    One-Letter Words, a Dictionary is a rich, thought-provoking, and curious compendium of the myriad definitions attributed to each letter of the English alphabet. This book is the essential desk companion, gift, or reference volume for a vast array of readers: wordsmiths, puzzle lovers, teachers, students, librarians, and armchair linguists will all find One-Letter Words, a Dictionary a must-have.

    Healing Hormones tackles a huge, attention-getting subject. TV and radio shows, websites telling people to take it easy, slow down, de-stress to feel better, live longer, be a better parent and more loving mate. But how? The prescriptions are disappointing: Yoga? Time-consuming and difficult for many. Prescription drugs? Costly, subject to abuse and may not be helpful. Naturopathic remedies? Unproven, untested and often ineffective.Healing Hormones has a better answer: show readers how to harness their own bodies' heal producing chemicals to improve their lives. Healing Hormones takes the take-care-of-yourself trend a step beyond where it has been before. Author Mark J. Estren, Ph.D., investigates five body-produced hormones that counter the stress response to make life better, calmer and more relaxed. The five healing hormones are dopamine, nitric oxide, endorphins, oxytocin, and serotonin.Healing Hormones will be readers' top choice to learn the pluses and minuses of the remarkable  hormones that drive their health and happiness or undercut it. Estren—who has more than 20 years of experience writing about medical issues and research for patients and their families—explains how to harness the power of these healing hormones in clear, easily understandable language.

    New York Times Bestseller 
    From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.” 
    One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us? 
    Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas. 
    Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become? 
    Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

    The Atlantis Secret: A Complete...

    THE CATACLYSM OF ALL CATACLYSMS 
    Ancient man witnessed an extraordinary array of cosmic activity, comets and meteors lighting up the skies, fireballs exploding in the atmosphere, and meteorites plunging to the ground. But what effects did such things have on the human psyche? In this remarkable book, Alan F. Alford explains how the sages of old drew an astonishing conclusion: long ago, they decided, a living planet had exploded and seeded the beginning of all life on earth. This 'Cataclysm of all cataclysms' - a forerunner of the modern Big Bang - had been witnessed by no man, and yet it became the cornerstone of the Sumerian and Egyptian civilizations. 
    THE MYTH OF ALL MYTHS 
    In Sumer and Egypt, the Exploded Planet myth was encoded in the tales of gods and peoples coming down from the sky. Millennia later, the ancient Greeks adopted similar ideas. In the myths and cults of the Olympian gods, in the mystery schools, in the cosmogonies of Thales, Anaximander, Heraclitus, Anaxagoras, Empedocles and Philolaos, in the 'soul religion' of Orpheus, Pythagoras, Parmenides, Socrates and Plato, in all of these places, the Exploded Planet cosmogony is to be found. 
    THE SECRET OF ALL SECRETS 
    Plato was initiated into the Exploded Planet secret, and used it as the basis for his story of Atlantis. In a theory that unifies all of Greek religion and explains every single aspect of the Atlantis story (a genuine first) Alan. F. Alford explains that the modern-day quest for Atlantis in the form of an ancient civilization, lost beneath the waves, is completely misguided. To search for the truth of the story - and Plato insisted that it was true - the reader must contemplate eternal mysteries such as the beginning of time, the role of cataclysms in the flux of the Universe, and the spiritual identity and destiny of man. This is 'The Atlantis Secret'. 
    YOU WON'T BELIEVE IT 'TIL YOU READ IT! 
    THE ATLANTIS SECRET is a truly ground-breaking book that offers a revolutionary, but common-sense solution to some of the greatest mysteries of our age. It will be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in the religion, myths, and mysticism of the Greeks, and is essential reading for those who seek true understanding of the mystery of Atlantis.

    Fools Frauds and Firebrands -...

    The thinkers who have been most influential on the attitudes of the New Left are examined in this study by one of the leading critics of leftist orientations in modern Western civilization. Scruton begins with a ruthless analysis of New Leftism and concludes with a critique of the key strands in its thinking. He conducts a reappraisal of such major left-wing thinkers as: E. P. Thompson, Ronald Dworkin, R. D. Laing, Jurgen Habermas, Gyorgy Lukacs, Jean-Paul Sartre,  Jacques Derrida, Slavoj Zizek, Ralph Milliband and Eric Hobsbawm. In addition to assessments of these thinkers' philosophical and political contributions, the book contains a biographical and bibliographical section summarizing their careers and most important writings. 
     
    In Thinkers of the New Left Scruton asks, what does the Left look like today and as it has evolved since 1989? He charts the transfer of grievances from the working class to women, gays and immigrants, asks what can we put in the place of radical egalitarianism, and what explains the continued dominance of antinomian attitudes in the intellectual world? Can there be any foundation for resistance to the leftist agenda without religious faith? 
     
    Scruton's exploration of these important issues is written with skill, perception and at all times with pellucid clarity. The result is a devastating critique of modern left-wing thinking.
