Challenges Of Meaning, Love And SuccessChallenges of Meaning, Love and Success

Meaning, love and success are among the cornerstones of a happy and fulfilled life. We feel aimless if we cannot find meaning; without love we can feel lonely and empty and in a culture that venerates success above all else, we cannot help but long to boost our worth in our own eyes and those of others by achieving myriad accomplishments. But how can we seek out meaning, love and success, and do we even recognise them when they come along?

In Challenges of Meaning, Love and Success Claus Böckmann examines our attitude to each of these vital ingredients for a happy life, reminding us of the role our own attitudes and beliefs play in shaping our reality, and how life's greatest goals and achievements are rarely the same dazzling, gold-plated aspirations which are presented to us by the media, and against which so many of us compare and evaluate ourselves. Isn't it time to look at your life anew?

What's In A Surname? What's In A Surname?

Surnames are much more than convenient identity tags; they are windows into our families' pasts. Some suggest ancestral trades (Butcher, Smith, Roper) or physical appearance (Long, Brown, Thynne). Some provide clues to where we come from (McDonald, Evans, Patel). And som - Rymer, Brocklebank, Stolbof - offer a hint of something just a little more exotic or esoteric. 

All are grist to the mill for Davide McKie who, in What's In A Surname?, sets off on a journey around Britain to find out how such appellations have evolved and what they tell us about ourselves. Elegiac and amusing by turns, he offers a wonderfully entertaining wander along the footpaths of the nation's history and culture, celebrating not just the Smiths and Joneses of these islands, but the Chaceporcs and Swetinbeddes too.

One Night In Winter

If your children were forced to testify against you, what terrible secrets would they reveal?

One Night In Winter

Moscow 1945. As Stalin and his courtiers celebrate victory over Hitler, shots ring out. On a nearby bridge, a teenage boy and girl lie dead.

But this is no ordinary tragedy and these are no ordinary teenagers, but the children of Russia's most important leaders who attend the most exclusive school in Moscow. Is it murder? A suicide pact? Or a conspiracy against the state? Directed by Stalin himself, an investigation begins as children are arrested and forced to testify against their friends - and their parents. This terrifying witch-hunt soon unveils illicit love affairs and family secrets in a hidden world where the smallest mistakes will be punished with death.

By the author of the world-wide bestsellers, Jerusalem, and Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar, and based on a true and previously untold story uncovered exclusively through Simon Sebag Montefiore's research, One Night in Winter is a heart-breaking, addictively readable love story.

When you make a decision or form an opinion, you think you know why. But you're wrong.

The truth is that most of our mental activity actually happens below the level of conscious thought. In this groundbreaking book, Dr David Lewis, director of the cutting-edge research agency Mindlab International, explores this incredible phenomenon. Delving into the mysteries of the 'zombie brain' that each of us possesses, he demonstrates how unconscious neurological processes underpin every aspect of our lives, from whether or not we find someone sexually attractive to how we resist (or give in to) temptation. 

Above all, he reveals the practical applications of this emerging field of research, giving us insights into such diverse areas as child development, anti-social activities like rioting, successful dieting, and even the ways that supermarkets make us spend more. We may not be conscious of our impulses but it is clear that we can no longer afford to be ignorant of them.
