"Charles Van Doren has laid a feast before all of us that is irresistible." -Mortimer J. Adler This engaging love letter to reading follows the great authors and classics that transformed the world: from Aristotle and Herodotus in ancient Greece to Salinger and Heinlein in 20th century America. Like a professor whose enthusiasm enwraps his students, Van Doren explains what's wonderful in the books you've missed and awakens your desire to reopen the books you already know. Divided chronologically by the periods in which these classics were written, each book is put in its historical context and brought to life by Van Doren's brilliant analysis. The Joy of Reading delves into a wide range of genres-fiction, poetry, drama, children's books, philosophy, history and science. This is the one book that brings together everything you need to know about the classics you missed and ignites your passion to read and reread the greatest books the world has ever known. This book is the fruit of a lifelong love affair. Reading, I believe, is my favorite thing to do; books and I have been inseparable almost as long as I can remember ... To this day, I become distressed if I am anywhere without a book, a magazine, a newspaper, any scrap of paper to read .... I like the smell of books, certainly the feel of them. Life without books would be, for me, a vacant horror." -Charles Van Doren "Nothing recommends the joy of reading better than the communication of it by a person who has spent a lifetime enriched by the delights of reading. Charles Van Doren is that kind of reader. He has laid a feast before us that is irresistible." -Mortimer J. Adler, author of How to Read a Book "Mr. Van Doren is that rarity, a truly well read man who reads not for professional purposes but for pleasure. His book spurs us on to explore more deeply and joyfully the infinitely varied terrain of good books." -Clifton Fadiman, author of The New Lifetime Reading Plan: The Classical Guide to World Literature

The way we conceptualise the economy and ourselves as homo economicus has profound consequences for our lives. The contributions to this anthology take debates about the financial crisis, about recent austerity measures or about the Brexit referendum a step further. A common denominator of these dynamics are underlying ideas of »the economy«. Each author identifies a facet of Britain's imagined economies. They connect seemingly separate fields such as finance and fiction in order to better understand current political changes. In addition, the book offers an urgently needed interdisciplinary view on the performative power of economic thought - and in this respect moves far beyond merely British perspectives.

My name is Jules Hooker. I have lived through a few crappy moments in my life—and with a name like Hooker, you can just imagine—but nothing, nothing, compares to the two intensely and world-shatteringly crappy things that happened to me this last June. Three, I guess, if you count Gilbert. After my boyfriend dumped me on the day I thought he was going to propose, I’d have to say two other really bad things happened last June. The first would have to be the dead body I discovered in the rental house in France where I went to get over being dumped. The second—and very possibly I should have led with this—was the dirty bomb that exploded over the Riviera throwing me and everyone else in France back to the 1950s. So now I’m stranded here—trying to make a living by solving murders the old fashioned way — without help from DNA, databases, CSI crime labs or the police. And I’m doing it in France. Where I do not speak the language. During the apocalypse. Sound like fun?

Esther B. King was born in 1909, and has been witness to many changes in the world. She lived through two world wars, the great depression, several other wars such as the Korean War, Vietnam War, Desert Storm, and experienced new inventions in technology and the dawn of space exploration. She also has suffered many losses in her life such as the loss of her parents, her husband, her oldest son, her vision, and her home. Through all this Esther has managed to keep her faith in God. This book, which is really a collection of some of her newspaper articles written for a local newspaper column, shares her philosophy of life that is based upon her belief in God and the moral lessons taught in the Bible. This book is an easy read because of the brevity of the articles, and her writing is laced with Southern United States colloquialisms and down-home common sense. If you have little time to study, but want to become more familiar with the scriptures, then this is a perfect book for you!

What can you do to spend less, save more and be happier? Why is it your moral duty to spank your kids? How are we contributing to the most pressing global issues of our generation, and how can we be part of the ultimate solution? This book is all about the cultural differences between East and West: the way we view food, money, love and life. These may appear insignificant at first, especially when viewed at the individual level, but our collective differences are what lay behind the big issues in our world today: macroeconomic imbalances, urban poverty, rising obesity rates and pension deficits, among others. The Asian Diet is intended to be a lesson in common sense and basic discipline, but it also aspires to be an exercise in moral and philosophical debate. The world has no shortage of soulless charlatans touting their half-baked strategies as the road to riches. Millions of books have been written (and sold) on topics ranging from real estate speculation, to day trading, to internet entrepreneurship; yet the only millionaires being created seem to be the authors, not the readers. The Asian approach is quite a different one. It is, in essence, a "get rich slow" scheme, espousing the virtues of self-restraint and savings. Because income alone does not equal wealth - it is the excess of income over expenditure that does - and in life, it is infinitely easier to control what you spend than what you earn. A modern day call to arms against the wretchedness of debt and decadence, The Asian Diet implores us to cease our profligate ways, to stop blaming others for our problems, to take responsibility for our own lives, and to start thinking critically about the issues we face each day.
