When her father walked out on her and her mother she decided relationships, love, marriage, the whole shebang, simply weren't worth the heartache. But is Cas, immoral most of the time and amoral when it comes to business, going too far with her new TV programme, Sex with an Ex? Unfeeling and unscrupulous, she ruthlessly manipulates everyone she comes into contact with. Until she meets Darren. A babe. Trouble is, he's a highly principled babe. He believes in love, marriage, fidelity and constancy, so can he believe in Cas? Is it possible the world is a better place than she imagined? And if it is - after a lifetime of playing games - is this discovery too late? 374 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction; Fiction; ISBN/EAN: 9780140290660.

Big mistake. Rose was the ideal wife and is the ideal mother; Lucy was the perfect mistress. Connie - good friend to both Lucy and Rose - is stuck in the middle. She listens to Lucy as she struggles to be a wife, mother and career bitch with one ear and hears about Rose's pain at being a lonely single mum with the other. But Connie has troubles too: she's just got the hang of her own family life when an old flame pops up to rekindle a dangerous passion ... will the whispers from the past blast out all the other noise? All three women need more than a belief in happily ever after if they are to negotiate their way through messy modern life. Especially as there are many more twists in the tale still to come ... 569 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction; Fiction; ISBN/EAN: 9780141030760.

HarperCollins 233272 Great Britain 2000 0002570998 / 9780002570992 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Author of bestselling Falling Leaves weaves together for the same audience her own personal experiences with the best of Chinese philosophy. Adeline Yen Mah, whose autobiography, Falling Leaves, is an international bestseller, here interweaves her own experiences with her views on Chinese thought and wisdom to create an illuminating and highly personal guide for Western readers. Adeline Yen Mah was born in Tianjin, and through the conversations and wisdom of her grandfather and aunt learnt a great deal of traditional Chinese thought, history and religion. Through her father's second marriage, to a Eurasian woman, and their subsequent move to Hong Kong, she learnt more about the Chinese attitudes to business and to family, and the strength of the Chinese in exile.Since living in London and California, Adeline Yen Mah has studied Chinese thought, looking at both the strengths and weaknesses which it gives those who follow it and now, in Watching the Tree, she takes us on a journey through the Chinese language, religions, history, using both Chinese proverbs and her own experiences, to bring to us an understanding of the richness of China and the ways that we can take and use some of the wisdom for ourselves in the West 248 pages.

Life Without Genes, Adrian Woolfson
92 Adrian Woolfson Life Without Genes
Flamingo 235400 Great Britain 2000 0006548741 / 9780006548744 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Can life exist without genes? What will living things be like in the future and how did life evolve in the first place? '"Life Without Genes" is gloriously playful, enticing, eye-opening and heartening.' Scotsman 'Lucid and entertaining!From Airfix kit-inspired, "Just-So" stories to lucid descriptions of the work of the mathematician Ilya Prigogine, Woolfson is a virtuoso in full command of extraordinary material.' Simon Inges Taking us beyond biology and genes, Adrian Woolfson changes our view of the future forever. Might giraffes grow taller than skyscrapers? How could crocodiles stay underwater for more than an hour? Is it possible to turn a stickleback into a daffodil, or a tiger into a porcupine? Woolfson asks us to imagine a hypermarket stocked with every possible type of toy in the universe, to see DNA as a infinitely flexible Lego, and he takes us on swirling Peter Pan-like trips through our own genes, showing us the full scope (and perils) of genetic engineering. A uniquely accessible work of science, with shades of Huxley, Lewis Carroll and Darwin, 'Life Without Genes' presents a truly startling vision of a future where the consequences of our current genetic experiments turn out to be both stranger and more foreign than we ever imagined. 'Fine-woven from dreams, swooping around the outer edges of the imaginable, "Life Without Genes" takes us to some mind-boggling conceptual spaces, conjuring into existence frightening Borgesian worlds, to make us question our assumptions about life!Wildly, ferally enjoyable.'

Prometheus Bound; The Suppliants; Seven Against Thebes and The Persians, Aeschylus [Phillip Vellacott - Translated with an introduction]
97 Aeschylus [Phillip Vellacott - Translated with an introduction] Prometheus Bound; The Suppliants; Seven Against Thebes and The Persians
Penguin Classics 231935 London, England. 1986 Reprint 0140441123 / 9780140441123 Softcover Good Condition (ex-library) No Dust Jacket The first of the great Greek Tragedians, Aeschylus wrote a large number of plays, of which seven survive. Of the four included in this volume, The Persians is unique in Greek tragedy in having as its subject matter a recent historical event, the defeat of the Persians at the famous battle of Salamis. The other three, Prometheus, The Suppliants and Seven Against Thebes, were all written as parts of trilogies and take their themes from Greek legend, but in each Aeschylus' interpretation reflects the new morality of classical Athens. Thus, in Seven Against Thebes the fate of the two main figures, Eteocles and Polyneices, is not entirely controlled by the gods, for Eteocles is free to choose whether or not he should fight his brother. And in Prometheus and The Suppliants Aeschylus shows that although the struggle of reason against violence can never be an easy one, it is reason that is the proper principle of civilized life.
