From the best-selling author who offers “the most utterly compelling translation of dog to human I have ever seen” (Jeffrey Masson), a joyful chronicle of a dog that is also a groundbreaking answer to the question: How can we give our dogs the happiest, healthiest lives? When Ted Kerasote was ready for a new dog after losing his beloved Merle — who died too soon, as all our dogs do — he knew that he would want to give his puppy Pukka the longest life possible. But how to do that? So much has changed in the way we feed, vaccinate, train, and live with our dogs from even a decade ago. In an adventure that echoes The Omnivore’s Dilemma with a canine spin, Kerasote tackles all those subjects, questioning our conventional wisdom and emerging with vital new information that will surprise even the most knowledgeable dog lovers. Can a purebred be as healthy as a mixed-breed? How many vaccines are too many? Should we rethink spaying and neutering? Is raw food really healthier than kibble, and should your dog be chewing more bones? Traveling the world and interviewing breeders, veterinarians, and leaders of the animal-welfare movement, Kerasote pulls together the latest research to help us rethink the everyday choices we make for our companions. And as he did in Merle's Door, Kerasote interweaves fascinating science with the charming stories of raising Pukka among his dog friends in their small Wyoming village. Funny, revelatory, and full of the delights of falling in love with a dog, Pukka’s Promise will help redefine the potential of our animal partners.

»Orwell kennen die meisten Leser nur als düsteren ›Big Brother‹-Visionär - die wenigsten wissen, daß der Autor einige Jahre als Kolonialbeamter in Burma tätig war. Vor diesem Erfahrungshintergrund entfaltet er die Geschichte eines britischen Diplomaten in einem burmesischen Außenposten. Lesenswert vor allem wegen der Schilderungen der Landeskultur - und George Orwells bitterböser Abrechnung mit der britischen Kolonial-Mentalität.«

Alex Austin', the author of "Nakamura Reality," called 'humans, Dogs, and Civilization" "An enthralling blend of science and anecdote". Thirty-two illustrated chapters recount the latest cutting-edge science about dogs, as well as true stories about actual dogs. The book is partly a memoir, a scientific work, and an "engaging" narrative. Kirkus Reviews called it "persuasive and engaging...a must read for anyone interested in the long history of dogs and people. The book shows that dogs are not directly descended from wolves, that early humans didn't tame wolves to be dogs, that dogs partnered with Stone Age hunters of their own volition, and that dogs co-evolved with people. In fact, both dogs and humans have special receptors in their brains to allow them to communicate with each other. The human brain has shrunk 10% since dogs domesticated themselves. That's because we relied on the dog's superior senses of vision and scent, so that our brains no longer had to have space for such senses. Instead, the human brain became fashioned for complex speech, thought, and the arts. Since dogs became companions for humans, Homo Sapiens has become Homo sapiens sapiens. That is, our own species has become more intelligent, although more deprived of acute senses. The book shows that civilization could never have been built by humans until dogs provided enough food through herding so that people no longer had to be nomads following herds of prey animals. There would be no Beethoven, Rock 'n Roll, Rembrandt, opera,. symphonies, or scientists if dogs hadn't taken care of early humans.

From acclaimed journalist Bill Gifford comes a roaring journey into the world of anti-aging science in search of answers to a universal obsession: what can be done about getting old? SPRING CHICKEN: Stay Young Forever (or Die Trying) SPRING CHICKEN is a full-throttle, high-energy ride through the latest research, popular mythology, and ancient wisdom on mankind's oldest obsession: How can we live longer? And better? In his funny, self-deprecating voice, veteran reporter Bill Gifford takes readers on a fascinating journey through the science of aging, from the obvious signs like wrinkles and baldness right down into the innermost workings of cells. We visit cutting-edge labs where scientists are working to "hack" the aging process, like purging "senescent" cells from mice to reverse the effects of aging. He'll reveal why some people live past 100 without even trying, what has happened with resveratrol, the "red wine pill" that made headlines a few years ago, how your fat tissue is trying to kill you, and how it's possible to unlock longevity-promoting pathways that are programmed into our very genes. Gifford separates the wheat from the chaff as he exposes hoaxes and scams foisted upon an aging society, and arms readers with the best possible advice on what to do, what not to do, and what life-changing treatments may be right around the corner. An intoxicating mixture of deep reporting, fascinating science, and prescriptive takeaway, SPRING CHICKEN will reveal the extraordinary breakthroughs that may yet bring us eternal youth, while exposing dangerous deceptions that prey on the innocent and ignorant.

Vikram Lall comes of age in 1950s Kenya, at the same time that the colony is struggling towards independence. Against the unsettling backdrop of Mau Mau violence, Vic and his sister Deepa, the grandchildren of an Indian railroad worker, search for their place in a world sharply divided between Kenyans and the British. We follow Vic from a changing Africa in the fifties, to the hope of the sixties, and through the corruption and fear of the seventies and eighties. Hauntingly told in the voice of the now exiled Vic, The In-Between World of Vikram Lall is an acute and bittersweet novel of identity and family, of lost love and abiding friendship, and of the insidious legacy of the British Empire.

›Flawed – Wie perfekt willst du sein?‹ ist der erste atemberaubende Band des neuen Zweiteilers von Bestsellerautorin Cecelia Ahern. Spannend und emotional erzählt sie in dieser Dystopie die Geschichte der 17-jährigen Celestine, die darum kämpft, etwas anderes sein zu dürfen als perfekt. Celestines Leben scheint perfekt: Sie ist schön, bei allen beliebt und hat einen unglaublich süßen Freund. Doch dann handelt sie in einem entscheidenden Moment aus dem Bauch heraus. Und bricht damit alle Regeln. Sie könnte im Gefängnis landen oder gebrandmarkt werden – verurteilt als Fehlerhafte. Denn Fehler sind in ihrer Welt nicht erlaubt. Nichts geht über die Perfektion. Auch nicht die Menschlichkeit. Jetzt muss sie kämpfen – um ihre eigene Zukunft und um ihre große Liebe. „Es ist mein erster All-Age-Roman, aber die Idee hat mich selbst fast überrollt. Ich kam kaum hinterher, sie aufzuschreiben. Es ist eine einzigartige Geschichte, aber wie in allen meinen Büchern steckt eine besondere Botschaft und ganz viel Gefühl drin.“ Cecelia Ahern

Das ultimative Kochbuch zum Erfolgsprogramm! Ernährungscoach Kimberly Snyder berät Stars wie Drew Barrymore, Dita von Teese oder Olivia Wilde in Ernährungsfragen. Kimberlys Grundansatz: bewusst ernähren, am besten gluten- und lactosefrei. Um konkrete Beauty-Resultate zu sehen, muss die Ernährung allerdings langfristig umgestellt werden. Ihr Fokus liegt auf Bio-Obst und -Gemüse. Als echte Schönmacher empfiehlt sie zum Beispiel Ananas: Die regt die Produktion von Kollagen im Körper an. Gegen Akne-Attacken helfen Zwiebeln, weil sie die Leber beim Entgiften unterstützen. Und Bananen beugen durch ihren Kalium- und Biotin-Gehalt Augenringen vor. Kultstatus hat in den USA ihr „Glowing Green Smoothie“ aus Salat, Spinat und Sellerie, für einen strahlenden Teint. Hier kommt das Kochbuch zum Erfolgsprogramm: Kimberly Snyder führt die Top-50-Detox-Foods auf, erklärt ihre speziellen Wirkweisen und liefert tolle Rezeptideen für strahlende Schönheit.
