Isaacson Walter Steve Jobs
Based on more than forty interviews with Steve Jobs conducted over two years - as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues - this is the acclaimed, internationally bestselling biography of the ultimate icon of inventiveness. Walter Isaacson tells the story of the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written, nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.

Ackroyd Peter History of England vol.2: Tudors
The second volume of Peter Ackroyd's masterful history of England: the Tudors Rich in detail and atmosphere and told in vivid prose, Tudors recounts the transformation of England from a settled Catholic country to a Protestant superpower. It is the story of Henry VIII's cataclysmic break with Rome, and his relentless pursuit of both the perfect wife and the perfect heir; of how the brief reign of the teenage king, Edward VI, gave way to the violent reimposition of Catholicism and the stench of bonfires under 'Bloody Mary'. It tells, too, of the long reign of Elizabeth I, which, though marked by civil strife, plots against the queen and even an invasion force, finally brought stability. Above all, however, it is the story of the English Reformation and the making of the Anglican Church. At the beginning of the sixteenth century, England was still largely feudal and looked to Rome for direction; at its end, it was a country where good governance was the duty of the state, not the church, and where men and women began to look to themselves for answers rather than to those who ruled them.

Sixsmith Martin Philomena
Philomena is now a major film starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan, directed by Stephen Frears When she fell pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to the convent at Roscrea in Co. Tipperary to be looked after as a fallen woman. She cared for her baby for three years until the Church took him from her and sold him, like countless others, to America for adoption. Coerced into signing a document promising never to attempt to see her child again, she nonetheless spent the next fifty years secretly searching for him, unaware that he was searching for her from across the Atlantic. Philomena's son, renamed Michael Hess, grew up to be a top Washington lawyer and a leading Republican official in the Reagan and Bush administrations. But he was a gay man in a homophobic party where he had to conceal not only his sexuality but, eventually, the fact that he had AIDs. With little time left, he returned to Ireland and the convent where he was born: his desperate quest to find his mother before he died left a legacy that was to unfold with unexpected consequences for all involved. Philomena is the tale of a mother and a son whose lives were scarred by the forces of hypocrisy on both sides of the Atlantic and of the secrets they were forced to keep. With a foreword by Judi Dench, Martin Sixsmith's book is a compelling and deeply moving narrative of human love and loss, both heartbreaking yet ultimately redemptive.

Austen Jane The Complete Novels
Jane Austen chronicles the subtleties and nuances of- and the aspirations and machinations at work in - her own social milieu.

Each of her novels is a love story and a story about marriage - marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not romances; ironic, comic, wise and penetrating, they are brilliant portrayals of the society Jane Austen knew.

Moore Charles Margaret Thatcher. The Authorized Biography. Volume One. Not for Turning
With unequalled authority and dramatic detail, Charles Moore's authorized biography of Margaret Thatcher now reveals as never before the early life, rise to power and first years as Prime Minister of the woman who transformed Britain and the world in the late twentieth century. Moore has had unique access to all Margaret Thatcher's private and governmental papers and interviewed her and her family extensively for this book. Many of her former colleagues and intimates have also shown him previously unseen papers, diaries and letters, and spoken frankly to him, knowing that what they said would not be published until after her death. The book immediately supersedes all other biographies and sheds much new light over the whole spectrum of British political life from her entry into Parliament in 1959 to what was arguably the zenith of her power - victory in the Falklands in 1982. Among the highlights of the book is an extraordinary cache of letters to her sister Muriel illuminating her young life: her relationship with her parents; her preoccupation with clothes; her early romantic attachments; her first impressions of Denis Thatcher; their courtship and marriage. The book brilliantly depicts her determination and boldness from the very beginning of her political career. It gives the fullest and most exciting account yet of her wresting the Tory leadership from Ted Heath at a time when no senior figure in the party would challenge him. Not least, it makes plain the degree to which, two years into government, she was beleaguered and her days were widely believed to be numbered. Running throughout is her experience of being a woman in politics when it was still overwhelmingly a man's world. Charles Moore clearly admires his subject, but is by no means uncritical. He shows what was remarkable about her and what was infuriating, her extraordinary strengths and sometimes surprising vulnerability, more convincingly than any previous account. At the moment when Margaret Thatcher becomes a historical figure, Moore's biography does magnificent justice to its subject.

Borges Jorge Luis Poems of the Night. A Dual-Language Edition
Revered for his magnificent works of fiction, Jorge Luis Borges thought of himself primarily as a poet. Poems of the Night is a moving collection of the great literary visionary's poetic meditations on nighttime, darkness, and the crepuscular world of visions and dreams, themes that speak implicitly to the blindness that overtook Borges late in life-and yet the poems here are drawn from the full span of Borges's career. Featuring such poems as History of the Night and In Praise of Darkness and more than fifty others in luminous translations by an array of distinguished translators-among them W.S. Merwin, Christopher Maurer, Alan Trueblood, and Alastair Reid-this volume brings to light many poems that have never appeared in English, presenting them en face with their Spanish originals.

Dawkins Richard The Magic of Reality. How We Know What's Really True
Magic takes many forms. Supernatural magic is what our ancestors invoked in order to explain the world before they developed the scientific method. The ancient Egyptians explained the night by suggesting that a goddess swallowed the sun. The Vikings believed a rainbow was the gods' bridge to earth. Aside from these extraordinary tales, there is another kind of magic that lies in the exhilaration of discovering the real answers to these questions. It is the magic of reality-science. Packed with dazzling illustrations and jaw-dropping facts, The Magic of Reality explains a wide range of natural phenomena. Having spent his career elucidating the wonders of science for adult readers, Richard Dawkins has now teamed up with acclaimed artist Dave McKean to share the magic of science with readers of all ages: What is stuff made of? How old is the universe? Why are there so many kinds of plants and animals? Who was the first man, or woman? This is a stunning, illustrated guide to the secrets of our world-and the universe beyond.

CITY OF BONES When Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder. Much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with odd markings. This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons-and keeping the odd werewolves and vampires in line. It's also her first meeting with gorgeous, golden-haired Jace. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon.

And Clary's only chance) to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil-and also her father. When the second of the Mortal Instruments is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor suspects Jace. Could Jace really be willing to betray everything he believes in to help their father?

Gregory Philippa The Other Queen
This dazzling novel from bestselling author Philippa Gregory presents a new and unique view of one of history's most intriguing, romantic, and maddening heroines. Biographers often neglect the captive years of Mary, Queen of Scots, who trusted Queen Elizabeth's promise of sanctuary when she fled from rebels in Scotland and then found herself imprisoned as the "guest" of George Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, and his indomitable wife, Bess of Hardwick. The newly married couple welcome the doomed queen into their home, certain that serving as her hosts and jailers will bring them an advantage in the cutthroat world of the Elizabethan court. To their horror, they find that the task will bankrupt them, and as their home becomes the epicenter of intrigue and rebellion against Elizabeth, their loyalty to each other and to their sovereign comes into question. If Mary succeeds in seducing the earl into her own web of treachery and treason, or if the great spymaster William Cecil links them to the growing conspiracy to free Mary from her illegal imprisonment, they will all face the headsman.

New York Times bestselling author Vince Flynn returns with his most explosive political thriller yet. A tour de force of action-packed suspense, Protect and Defend delivers an all-too-realistic and utterly compelling vision of nations navigating the minefield of international intrigue. A true "heavyweight in the political thriller arena" (Minneapolis Star Tribune), Vince Flynn has created a flesh-and-blood hero that readers can cheer for and a "finger-blistering page-turner" they won't dare put down. In Protect and Defend, the action begins in the heart of Iran, where billions of dollars are being spent on the development of a nuclear program. No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel launches one of the most creative and daring espionage operations ever conceived. The attack leaves a radioactive tomb and environmental disaster in the middle of Iran's second largest city. An outraged Iranian government publicly blames both Israel and the United States for the attack and demands retribution. Privately, Iran's bombastic president wants much more. He wants America and Israel to pay for their aggression with blood. Enter Mitch Rapp, America's top counterterrorism operative. Used to employing deception, Rapp sees an opportunity where others see only Iranian reprisals that could leave thousands of Americans dead. Rapp convinces President Josh Alexander to sign off on a risky operation that will further embarrass the Iranian government and push their country to the brink of revolution. As part of the plan, CIA director Irene Kennedy is dispatched to the region for a clandestine meeting with Azad Ashani, her Iranian counterpart. But Rapp isn't the only one hatching plans. Iran's President Amatullah has recruited Hezbollah master terrorist Imad Mukhtar to do his dirty work. For decades Mukhtar has acted as a surrogate for Iran, blazing a trail of death and destruction across the Middle East and beyond. When Kennedy's meeting with Ashani goes disastrously wrong, Rapp and Mukhtar are set on a collision course that threatens to engulf the entire region in war. With the clock ticking, Rapp is given twenty-four hours, no questions asked, to do whatever it takes to stop Mukhtar, and avert an unthinkable catastrophe.

Carter Chris The Death Sculptor
He targets. He torments. He kills. The New Norbert Hunter Thriller | 'Good job you didn't turn on the lights . . .' A student nurse has the shock of her life when she discovers her patient, prosecutor Derek Nicholson, brutally murdered in his bed. The act seems senseless - Nicholson was terminally ill with only weeks to live. But what most shocks Detective Robert Hunter of the Los Angeles Robbery Homicide Division is the calling card the killer left behind. For Hunter, there is no doubt that the killer is trying to communicate with the police, but the method is unlike anything he's ever seen before. And what could the hidden message be? Just as Hunter and his partner Garcia reckon they've found a lead, a new body is found - and a new calling card. But with no apparent link between the first and second victims, all the progress they've made so far goes out of the window. Pushed into an uncomfortable alliance with the confident Alice Beaumont, Hunter must race to put together the pieces of the investigation . . . before the Death Sculptor puts the final touches to his masterpiece.
Isaacson Walter Einstein. His Life and Universe
Albert Einstein is one of the greatest icons of our age: the kindly refugee from oppression whose wild halo of hair, twinkling eyes, engaging humanity and extraordinary brilliance made his face a symbol and his name a synonym for genius. In this first full biography since all Einstein's papers have become available, bestselling author Walter Isaacson explains not just how his mind worked but also presents a marvellously clear picture of the mysteries of the universe that he discovered - and of the very human man who discovered them. Working as a clerk in the Swiss patent office in 1905, Einstein produced four papers that redefined physics. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marvelling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for freedom of spirit and individuality - all of which helped make Einstein into a rebel, but with a reverence for the harmony of nature, one with just the right blend of imagination and wisdom to transform our understanding of the universe. Brilliantly readable and compellingly accessible, Einstein: His Life and Universe is a fully realised portrait of this extraordinary human being, and great genius.

Дугин Станислав Петрович Deutsch: самоучитель немецкого языка
Изучение немецкого языка - нелегкий труд, так как немецкая грамматика очень сложна. Досконально выучить этот язык, безусловно, сложнее, чем тот же английский или французский. Тем не менее это возможно. Предлагаемый самоучитель позволит вам разобраться в основных законах немецкой грамматики. Вы научитесь строить простые фразы, необходимые в повседневной жизни, связно и грамматически верно выражать свои мысли на немецком. Это, конечно, далеко от того, чтобы знать язык в совершенстве. Но, пройдя этот уровень, вы уже научитесь читать, а также правильно писать и говорить по-немецки.

Музицируем дома. Любимая классика. Пьесы и ансамбли для фортепиано в простом переложении
Изнурительные гаммы, путающие диктанты по сольфеджио, многочисленные домашние занятия, действующие на нервы соседям. Все это хорошо знакомо тем, кто когда-то учился в музыкальной школе. Но время проходит, и вспоминается только хорошее. Да, пусть мы разучивали этюды и полифонию, когда наши друзья наслаждались прогулками и играми, но взамен мы приобрели нечто гораздо большее. Благодаря нашим родителям мы приобщились к миру музыки, получили возможность воспроизводить прекрасные звуки из прошлого и настоящего, получать грандиозное удовольствие от игры на фортепиано. К тому же самый лучший способ снятия стрессов, отвлечения от всех душевных и насущных проблем - это "домашнее музицирование". Нотный сборник, который вы держите в руках, составлен не просто из самых любимых классических произведений, которые играли до нас, и будут играть после. Пьесы и ансамбли включенные в него, представлены в простом переложении и поэтому доступны всем, кто знаком с игрой на фортепиано на уровне средних классов музыкальной школы. Играйте наедине с собой, устраивайте домашние концерты, лечите душу музыкой и мир станет светлее и ярче. Составитель Волкова Д.В. 3-е издание, стереотипное.
