Seeing Stars

SUMMARY: Ruth Rabinowitz believes. She believes that her daughter, Bethany, is a terrific little actress, so they have come to Hollywood, where dreams come true. Ruth’s husband and Bethany’s father, who thinks their quest for stardom is delusional, has been left behind in Seattle. Joining Bethany Rabinowitz in Hollywood’s often toxic waters are fellow child actors Quinn Reilly, who has been cast adrift by his family and excels only on Hollywood sets; beautiful Allison Addison, who is misled by her powerful need for love; and Laurel Buehl, who brings a desperate secret to LA that makes the stakes impossibly high. As talent managers, agents, coaches, directors, and teachers nurture–and feed on–their ambitions, stars will be made, hearts will be broken, children will grow up, and dreams will both be realized and die.

Seeing further: the story of science & the Royal Society

SUMMARY: Edited and introduced by Bill Bryson, and with contributions from Richard Dawkins, Margaret Atwood, David Attenborough, Martin Rees and Richard Fortey amongst others, this is a remarkable volume celebrating the 350th anniversary of the Royal Society.On a damp weeknight in November, 350 years ago, a dozen or so men gathered at Gresham College in London. A twenty-eight year old ‘ and not widely famous ‘ Christopher Wren was giving a lecture on astronomy. As his audience listened to him speak, they decided that it would be a good idea to create a Society to promote the accumulation of useful knowledge. With that, the Royal Society was born.Since its birth, the Royal Society has pioneered scientific exploration and discovery. Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Robert Hooke, Robert Boyle, Joseph Banks, Humphry Davy, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, John Locke, Alexander Fleming ‘ all were members. Bill Bryson’s favourite member was Reverend Thomas Bayes, a brilliant mathematician who devised Bayes’ theorem. Whilst it had little practical use in Bayes’ lifetime, today his theorem is used for weather forecasting, astrophysics and stock market analysis. A milestone in mathematical history, it only exists because the Royal Society decided to preserve it ‘ just in case.The Royal Society continues to do today what it set out to do all those years ago. Its members have split the atom, discovered the double helix, the electron, the computer and the World Wide Web. Truly international in its outlook, it has created modern science. ‘Seeing Further’ celebrates its momentous history and achievements, bringing together the very best of science writing. Filled with illustrations of treasures from the Society’s archives, this is a unique, ground-breaking volume that you’ll want to pick up again and again.

Sed & Awk

*sed & awk* describes two text processing programs that are mainstays of the UNIX programmer’s toolbox.
*sed* is a “stream editor” for editing streams of text that might be too large to edit as a single file, or that might be generated on the fly as part of a larger data processing step. The most common operation done with *sed* is substitution, replacing one block of text with another.
*awk* is a complete programming language. Unlike many conventional languages, *awk* is “data driven” — you specify what kind of data you are interested in and the operations to be performed when that data is found. *awk* does many things for you, including automatically opening and closing data files, reading records, breaking the records up into fields, and counting the records. While *awk* provides the features of most conventional programming languages, it also includes some unconventional features, such as extended regular expression matching and associative arrays. *sed & awk* describes both programs in detail and includes a chapter of example *sed* and *awk* scripts.
This edition covers features of *sed* and *awk* that are mandated by the POSIX standard. This most notably affects *awk*, where POSIX standardized a new variable, CONVFMT, and new functions, *toupper*() and *tolower*(). The CONVFMT variable specifies the conversion format to use when converting numbers to strings (*awk* used to use OFMT for this purpose). The *toupper*() and *tolower*() functions each take a (presumably mixed case) string argument and return a new version of the string with all letters translated to the corresponding case.
In addition, this edition covers GNU *sed*, newly available since the first edition. It also updates the first edition coverage of Bell Labs *nawk* and GNU *awk* (*gawk*), covers *mawk*, an additional freely available implementation of *awk*, and briefly discusses three commercial versions of *awk*, MKS *awk*, Thompson Automation *awk* (*tawk*), and Videosoft (VSAwk).

Secrets to the Grave

**#1 *New York Times* bestselling author Tami Hoag returns with her second thriller in the*Deeper than the Dead* microseries, exploring the early days of forensic investigation, the characteristics of innocence-and the nature of evil.**
Marissa Fordham had a past full of secrets, a present full of lies. Everyone knew of her, but no one knew her.
When Marissa is found brutally murdered, with her young daughter, Haley, resting her head on her mother’s bloody breast, she sends the idyllic California town of Oak Knoll into a tailspin. Already on edge with the upcoming trial of the See- No-Evil killer, residents are shocked by reports of the crime scene, which might not have been discovered for days had it not been for a chilling 911 call: a small child’s voice saying, “My daddy hurt my mommy.”
Sheriff’s detective Tony Mendez faces a puzzle with nothing but pieces that won’t fit. To assist with his witness, Haley, he calls teacher-turned-child advocate Anne Leone. Anne’s life is hectic enough-she’s a newlywed and a part- time student in child psychology, and she’s the star witness in the See-No-Evil trial. But one look at Haley, alone and terrified, and Anne’s heart is stolen.
As Tony and Anne begin to peel back the layers of Marissa Fordham’s life, they find a clue fragment here, another there. And just when it seems Marissa has taken her secrets to the grave, they uncover a fact that puts Anne and Haley directly in the sights of a killer: *Marissa Fordham never existed.*

The Secret River

Moving between the slums of nineteenth-century London and the convict colonies of Australia, a compelling historical novel chronicles the lives and fortunes of the early pioneers of New South Wales, in a volume based on the author’s own family history.

Will’s relationship with Sal is frequently fortified by such psychological insights. Their mutual awareness gives the couple a convincing weight as well as engaging the reader’s sympathy and deepening the narrative tension. By this stage, what started as a sumptuous historical with its brilliantly atmospheric depiction of Georgian London’s Stygian gloom, has developed into a profound journey of self discovery. * * Independent on Sunday * * Ambitious new novel… Grenville’s skill is to turn what could have been too obviously a representative moral fable into a rich novel of character. * * Sunday Telegraph * * We have had to wait five years for The Secret River but the wait has been worth it….Splendidly paced, passionate and disturbing. * * The Times * *

The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe

EDITORIAL REVIEW: Beautiful, damaged, the ultimate sex symbol, publicly celebrated, privately unhappy – Marilyn Monroe’s tumultuous life and untimely death continue to fascinate us. When Marilyn Monroe became famous in the 1950s, the world was told that her mother was either dead or simply not a part of her life. However, that was not true. In fact, her mentally ill mother was very much present in Marilyn’s world and the complex family dynamic that unfolded behind the scenes is a story that has never been told – until now. In this groundbreaking book, Taraborrelli draws complex and sympathetic portraits of the women so influential in the actress’ life, including her mother, her foster mother and her legal guardian. He also reveals, for the first time, the shocking scope of Marilyn’s own mental illness, the identity of Marilyn’s father and the half-brother she never knew, and new information about her relationship with the Kennedys – Bobby, Jack and Pat Lawford Kennedy. Explosive, revelatory and surprisingly moving, this is the final word on the life of one of the most fascinating and elusive icons of the twentieth century.
