Description :


On September 6, 2007, an African Grey parrot named Alex died prematurely at age thirty-one. His last words to his owner, Irene Pepperberg, were ‘You be good. I love you.’ What would normally be a quiet, very private event was, in Alex’s case, headline news. Over the thirty years they had worked together, Alex and Irene had become famous — two pioneers who opened an unprecedented window into the hidden yet vast world of animal minds. When Irene and Alex first met, birds were not believed to possess any potential for language, consciousness, or anything remotely comparable to human intelligence. Yet, over the years, Alex proved many things. He could add. He could sound out words. He understood concepts like bigger, smaller, more, fewer, and none. He was capable of thought and intention. Together, Alex and Irene uncovered a startling reality: We live in a world populated by thinking, conscious creatures. The fame that resulted was extraordinary. Yet there was a side to their relationship that never made the papers. They were emotionally connected to one another. They shared a deep bond far beyond science. Alex missed Irene when she was away. He was jealous when she paid attention to other parrots, or even people. He liked to show her who was boss. He loved to dance. He sometimes became bored by the repetition of his tests, and played jokes on her. Sometimes they sniped at each other. Yet nearly every day, they each said, ‘I love you.’ Alex and Irene stayed together through thick and thin – despite sneers from experts, extraordinary financial sacrifices, and a nomadic existence from one university to another. The story of their thirty-year adventure is a landmark of scientific achievement and of an unforgettable human-animal bond.

What would normally be a quiet, very private event was, in Alex's case, headline news. Over the thirty years they had worked together, Alex and Irene had become famous—two pioneers who opened an unprecedented window into the hidden yet vast world of animal minds. Alex's brain was the size of a shelled walnut, and when Irene and Alex first met, birds were not believed to possess any potential for language, consciousness, or anything remotely comparable to human intelligence.

The story of their thirty-year adventure is equally a landmark of scientific achievement and of an unforgettable human-animal bond.

"The clever, fast-moving plot features a strong, appealing heroine, Sylvia Plath's poetry, romance, betrayal, and heart-stopping suspense." - Kirkus Reviews "This ambitious sci-fi novel, filled with multiverses and what-ifs... contains complex world building that would appeal to fans of TV's Orphan Black." - Booklist Almost fifteen, Alicia is smart and funny with a deep connection to the poet Sylvia Plath, but she’s ultimately failing at life. With a laundry list of diagnoses, she hallucinates different worlds—strange, decaying, otherworldly yet undeniably real worlds that are completely unlike her own with her single mom and one true friend. In one particularly vivid hallucination, Alicia is drawn to a boy her own age named Jax who’s trapped in a dying universe. Days later, her long-lost father shows up at her birthday party, telling her that the hallucinations aren’t hallucinations, but real worlds; she and Jax are bound by a strange past and intertwining present. This leads her on a journey to find out who she is while trying to save the people and worlds she loves. J.Q. Coyle’s The Infinity of You & Me is a wild ride through unruly hearts and vivid worlds guaranteed to captivate.

Description :


This book identifies and expands upon the link between ontology and education, exposing a lack of ontological inquiry as the vital missing element in the study and practice of modern education today. In this book, Roy aims to reintroduce ontological thinking and reasoning that grounds historical and modern educational understandings and practice. Beginning with a historical perspective, he then turns to examine the results of his scholarship into practical concerns of education such as language, dialogue, and curriculum: ultimately proposing a new way forward emphasizing a balance in the education effort between epistemic content and ontological disclosure.

In this delightfully charming teen spin on You’ve Got Mail, the one guy Bailey Rydell can’t stand is actually the boy of her dreams—she just doesn’t know it yet. Classic movie buff Bailey “Mink” Rydell has spent months crushing on a witty film geek she only knows online by “Alex.” Two coasts separate the teens until Bailey moves in with her dad, who lives in the same California surfing town as her online crush. Faced with doubts (what if he’s a creep in real life—or worse?), Bailey doesn’t tell Alex she’s moved to his hometown. Or that she’s landed a job at the local tourist-trap museum. Or that she’s being heckled daily by the irritatingly hot museum security guard, Porter Roth—a.k.a. her new arch-nemesis. But life is whole lot messier than the movies, especially when Bailey discovers that tricky fine line between hate, love, and whatever-it-is she’s starting to feel for Porter. And as the summer months go by, Bailey must choose whether to cling to a dreamy online fantasy in Alex or take a risk on an imperfect reality with Porter. The choice is both simpler and more complicated than she realizes, because Porter Roth is hiding a secret of his own: Porter is Alex…Approximately.

For decades, thriller master Jonathan Kellerman has been keeping readers in suspense, putting to the test the razor-sharp insights of Dr. Alex Delaware. Alongside friend and partner, LAPD detective Milo Sturgis, the psychologist sleuth confronts mystery, deception, and danger. Now four of Delaware’s most exhilarating adventures—Silent Partner, Devil’s Waltz, Bad Love, and Self-Defense—are packaged together in one gripping eBook bundle perfect for stay-up-late entertainment. Contains an exciting preview of Jonathan Kellerman’s upcoming novel Guilt! SILENT PARTNER “A complex and haunting story of tangled personalities, deeply buried family secrets, and of violence lying thinly under the surface . . . hits the reader right between the eyes.”—Los Angles Times Book Review At a party for a controversial sex therapist, Alex encounters Sharon Ransom, an alluring lover who, more than a decade earlier, abruptly left him. The following day Sharon is dead, an apparent suicide. Driven by guilt and sadness, Alex plunges into the labyrinthine maze of her life—a journey taking him to the pleasure palaces of California’s ultrarich, and deep into the dark alleyways of the mind, where childhood terrors still hold sway. DEVIL’S WALTZ “I double dare you to start reading Devil’s Waltz and put it down.”—Larry King Toddler Cassie Jones is rushed to the hospital with symptoms no doctor can explain. When Alex is called to investigate, instinct tells him that someone—Cassie’s parents or the child’s devoted nurse—could be a monster. Then a physician is brutally killed, and a shadowy death revealed. Alex and Milo have only a few hours to discover the link between these shocking events and baby Carrie’s terrifying condition. BAD LOVE “Bad Love will have you looking over your shoulder before you turn out the lights.”—Detroit Free Press Arriving in an unmarked brown wrapper is an audiocassette recording of a horrifying scream, followed by the chanting of a childlike voice. The tape is an early intimation that Alex is entering a living nightmare. With Milo’s help, Alex uncovers a diabolical pattern of violent murder. And if they do not quickly decipher the twisted logic of a stalker’s mind game, Alex will be the next to die. SELF-DEFENSE “Exciting . . . loaded with tension and packed with titillating insights.”—The New York Times Book Review Lucy Lowell is referred to Alex for help with a recurring nightmare of a child in the forest at night, watching a strange and furtive act. Now Lucy’s dream is disrupting her waking life, and Alex is concerned. The dream’s grip on her emotions suggests to him that it may be more than a nightmare. It could be Lucy’s repressed childhood memory of something chillingly real. Something like murder.

Everything’s going right for Sandra Berlin. She is living in Manhattan, climbing the editorial ladder at ultra-chic fashion magazine Jolie!, and she’s just become engaged to Bucky Ross, her high-school sweetheart. Bucky’s her knight in shining WASP armor, a successful ad executive and a descendant of Betsy Ross, and their future promises a life of comfortable suburban bliss: the Tudor mansion, the beautiful children, the country club. And then, three weeks later, at a party at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sandy meets Bucky’s other fiancée. Who tells her about Bucky’s third fiancée. Which begins Sandy’s journey through the unfamiliar world of heartbreak and betrayal—and the most excruciating blind dates in the history of singledom. As she tries to piece her life back together, she relies on the common sense and compassion of her best friend, Paul—a rising young film agent, gorgeous, gay, and moneyed—to keep her sane. But even Paul has his secrets, and soon Sandy is forced, on her own, to reexamine her past and, more important, what she wants for her future. Me Times Three is comic and tender, outrageous and wise—a shrewd, dead-on portrait of a certain slice of New York life. It’s a story about wished-for ideals versus hard realities, about being who you are versus the desire to fit in, and, finally, about how love can surprise us in the most unexpected ways.
