The Blind Bookkeeper (or Why Homer Must Be Blind) by Alberto Manguel
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.6 MB
Overview: Rich with literary awards and honours, Alberto Manguel extends his literary genius to address and complete a thoughtfully crafted extrapolation on a paper left unfinished by Northrop Frye in 1943. The result is a succinct yet densely multilayered examination of how various readings of Homer throughout the annals of history cast light upon the human tendency towards war rather than peace and asks what roles writing and reading play to bring the world into better equilibrium.

Central to this lecture is the concept of re-binding, a word drawn from the Latin roots for the word religion, which Manguel posits is the essential definition of poetry. Homer’s writings, the point of origin of all written verse, are also the first written instance of the binding of imagined, written, and read realities. The semantics of Homer’s name and the literal and figurative ramifications of his blindness are investigated as Manguel builds the scaffold for unveiling our own blindness through our desire to read Homer in our own image — much as humans have created god(s) in their own likeness(es). We are left to examine our own assumptions and to ask whether we have the courage to challenge ourselves with alternative interpretations of constructed realities, in other languages, that may threaten our own comfortable construct of rightness and reality in order to explore and recognize the world in a more balanced way.

Download Still Water by John Lewis-Stempel (.ePUB)

Still Water: The Deep Life of the Pond by John Lewis-Stempel
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 4.3 MB
Overview: The Pond. Nothing in the countryside is more humble or more valuable. It’s the moorhen’s reedy home, the frog’s ancient breeding place, the kill zone of the beautiful dragonfly. More than a hundred rare and threatened fauna and flora depend on it.
Written in gorgeous prose, Still Water tells the seasonal story of the wild animals and plants that live in and around the pond, from the mayfly larvae in the mud to the patrolling bats in the night sky above. It reflects an era before the water was polluted with chemicals and the land built on for housing, a time when ponds shone everywhere like eyes in the land, sustaining life for all, from fish to carthorse.
Still Water is a loving biography of the pond, and an alarm call on behalf of this precious but overlooked habitat. Above all, John Lewis-Stempel takes us on a remarkable journey – deep, deep down into the nature of still water. (less)

Download Microbiome & Metabolome in Diagnosis, Therapy by Joel Faintuch +(.PDF)

Microbiome and Metabolome in Diagnosis, Therapy, and other Strategic Applications by Joel Faintuch, Salomao Faintuch
Requirements: .PDF reader, 10.26 MB
Overview: Microbiome and Metabolome in Diagnosis, Therapy, and Other Strategic Applications is the first book to simultaneously cover the microbiome and the metabolome in relevant clinical conditions. In a pioneering fashion, it addresses not only the classic intestinal environment, but also the oral, gastric, lung, skin and vaginal microbiome that is in line with the latest investigations. Nonbacterial microbiomes, such as fungi and viruses are not overlooked, and the plasma microbiome is also discussed. As plasma, brain, placenta, tumor cells, and other sterile fluids and tissues, are increasingly recognized to potentially host a microbiome, albeit a limited one, this is a timely resource.

The book’s editors were fortunate to have the input of renowned collaborators from nearly all continents. This is truly an international effort that brings the latest in the field to students and professionals alike.

Download The Joy of Hate by Greg Gutfeld (.ePUB)

The Joy of Hate: How to Triumph over Whiners in the Age of Phony Outrage by Greg Gutfeld
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.0 MB
Overview: From the irreverent star of Fox News’s Red Eye and The Five, hilarious observations on the manufactured outrage of an oversensitive, wussified culture.

Greg Gutfeld hates artificial tolerance. At the root of every single major political conflict is the annoying coddling Americans must endure of these harebrained liberal hypocrisies. In fact, most of the time liberals uses the mantle of tolerance as a guise for their pathetic intolerance. And what we really need is smart intolerance, or as Gutfeld reminds us, what we used to call common sense.

The Joy of Hate tackles this conundrum head on–replacing the idiocy of open-mindness with a shrewd judgmentalism that rejects stupid ideas, notions, and people. With countless examples grabbed from the headlines, Gutfeld provides readers with the enormous tally of what pisses us all off. For example:
– The double standard: You can make fun of Christians, but God forbid Muslims. It’s okay to call a woman any name imaginable, as long as she’s a Republican. And no problem if you’re a bigot, as long as you’re politically correct about it.
– The demonizing of the Tea Party and romanticizing of the Occupy Wall Streeters.
– The media who are always offended (see MSNBC lineup)
– How critics of Obamacare or illegal immigration are somehow immediately labeled racists.
– The endless debate over the Ground Zero Mosque (which Gutfeld planned to open a Muslim gay bar next to).
– As well as pretentious music criticism, slow-moving ceiling fans, and snotty restaurant hostesses.

Funny and sarcastic to the point of being mean (but in a nice way), The Joy of Hate points out the true jerks in this society and tells them all off.
