The Secrets of Supervillainy

Merciless, the Supervillain without Mercy (TM) is back with even bigger problems! How far will he go to fix his wife’s current state of being a soulless vampire? Can he ignore his growing feelings for Cindy, despite their difference over the new Star Wars movie? Can he survive the wrath of the President of the United States (who he accidentally stole billions from)?
While he ponders those personal issues, Death has a new mission for him. The greatest hero on Earth has killed and she isn’t pleased. Death wants the murder solved and the perpetrator given the kind of justice only the Avatar of Death can dish out. Unfortunately for Gary, that’s only the tip of the psychotic iceberg.

The Scions of Shannara

*****50 MILLION TERRY BROOKS COPIES SOLD AROUND THE WORLD*****
**THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES IS NOW A MAJOR TV SERIES**
***’Terry’s place is at the head of the fantasy world* ‘ Philip Pullman**
Three hundred years have passed in the Four Lands. The Federation now controls all of the Southland. In the West, the Elves have vanished. In the East, the dwarves are enslaved. Par Ohmsford has retained some of the magical powers of his ancestors, although he does not fully understand the way they work. He is troubled by dreams of Allanon, the Druid whose fate has always seemed linked with that of the Ohmsfords. But when he is told of the Shadowen, the greatest danger ever to threaten the Four Lands, he embarks upon a perilous quest – to meet the shade of Allanon and to carry his message to the other Scions of Shannara.
Praise for Terry Brooks:

The Right Stuff

Tom Wolfe began *The Right Stuff* at a time when it was unfashionable to contemplate American heroism. Nixon had left the White House in disgrace, the nation was reeling from the catastrophe of Vietnam, and in 1979–the year the book appeared–Americans were being held hostage by Iranian militants. Yet it was exactly the anachronistic courage of his subjects that captivated Wolfe. In his foreword, he notes that as late as 1970, almost one in four career Navy pilots died in accidents. ” *The Right Stuff* ,” he explains, “became a story of why men were willing–willing?–delighted!–to take on such odds in this, an era literary people had long since characterized as the age of the anti-hero.” Wolfe’s roots in New Journalism were intertwined with the nonfiction novel that Truman Capote had pioneered with *In Cold Blood*. As Capote did, Wolfe tells his story from a limited omniscient perspective, dropping into the lives of his “characters” as each in turn becomes a major player in the space program. After an opening chapter on the terror of being a test pilot’s wife, the story cuts back to the late 1940s, when Americans were first attempting to break the sound barrier. Test pilots, we discover, are people who live fast lives with dangerous machines, not all of them airborne. Chuck Yeager was certainly among the fastest, and his determination to push through Mach 1–a feat that some had predicted would cause the destruction of any aircraft–makes him the book’s guiding spirit. Yet soon the focus shifts to the seven initial astronauts. Wolfe traces Alan Shepard’s suborbital flight and Gus Grissom’s embarrassing panic on the high seas (making the controversial claim that Grissom flooded his Liberty capsule by blowing the escape hatch too soon). The author also produces an admiring portrait of John Glenn’s apple-pie heroism and selfless dedication. By the time Wolfe concludes with a return to Yeager and his late-career exploits, the narrative’s epic proportions and literary merits are secure. Certainly *The Right Stuff* is the best, the funniest, and the most vivid book ever written about America’s manned space program. *\–Patrick O’Kelley*

The Pyramids: Ancient Egypt’s Most Iconic Monuments

Every child of the modern world has grown up with an understanding of the pyramids of ancient Egypt as some of the most incredible structures the human race has ever produced. However, there is much more to the history of the pyramids than most people would suppose. Far from simply rising out of the desert, they went through a long period of development that spans back even into the Predynastic Period of Egyptian history. These remarkable structures also did not end their history with the massive pyramid complexes of the Giza plateau. Indeed, these were products of one of the earlier portions of Egypt’s pyramid building history.
The Pyramids: Ancient Egypt’s Most Iconic Monuments traces the history of these amazing tombs and the complexes built around them from the earliest days of ancient Egypt until pyramid construction was eventually stopped at the outset of the New Kingdom. This history is presented to the reader in an accessible and easy to understand manner that does not require a specialized knowledge of the pyramids themselves or of Egyptian history in general.
In this book, you will learn about:
-The development of the pyramids from earlier forms of Egyptian tombs.
-The earliest pyramids and the innovations that went into creating them.
-The Fourth Dynasty pyramids at Giza, which represent Egypt’s pyramid building history at its absolute zenith.
-The later pyramids of the Old Kingdom, constructed in the Fifth and Sixth Dynasties.
-The history of Egypt’s pyramids during the Middle Kingdom and the First and Second Intermediate Periods.
-The theories regarding the construction of the pyramids.
\- How the pyramids of Egypt compare of other pyramid sites around the world.
-The researchers who devoted their lives to the study of Egyptology to give us the body of knowledge about the pyramids that we have today.
The pyramids, their history and their construction are some of the most fascinating facets of the study of ancient Egypt history. These tombs, which have inspired awe and wonder in all who have seen them over the course of the past 4,000 years are among the greatest building ever constructed. Learn more about the full history that surround these marvels of ancient Egypt in The Pyramids: Ancient Egypt’s Most Iconic Monuments.

* Fight software rot
* Learn continuously
* Avoid the trap of duplicating knowledge
* Write flexible, dynamic, and adaptable code
* Harness the power of basic tools
* Avoid programming by coincidence
* Learn real requirements
* Solve the underlying problems of concurrent code
* Guard against security vulnerabilities
* Build teams of Pragmatic Programmers
* Take responsibility for your work and career
* Test ruthlessly and effectively, including property-based testing
* Implement the Pragmatic Starter Kit
* Delight your users

Written as a series of self-contained sections and filled with classic and fresh anecdotes, thoughtful examples, and interesting analogies, ***The Pragmatic Programmer** * illustrates the best approaches and major pitfalls of many different aspects of software development.

### Dalla quarta di copertina
**What others in the trenches say about *The Pragmatic Programmer*… ** “The cool thing about this book is that it’s great for keeping the programming process fresh. The book helps you to continue to grow and clearly comes from people who have been there.”          ― **Kent Beck** , author of *Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change* “I found this book to be a great mix of solid advice and wonderful analogies!”          ― **Martin Fowler** , author of *Refactoring* and *UML Distilled* “I would buy a copy, read it twice, then tell all my colleagues to run out and grab a copy. This is a book I would never loan because I would worry about it being lost.”          ― **Kevin Ruland** , Management Science, MSG-Logistics “The wisdom and practical experience of the authors is obvious. The topics presented are relevant and useful…. By far its greatest strength for me has been the outstanding analogies―tracer bullets, broken windows, and the fabulous helicopter-based explanation of the need for orthogonality, especially in a crisis situation. I have little doubt that this book will eventually become an excellent source of useful information for journeymen programmers and expert mentors alike.”          ― **John Lakos** , author of *Large-Scale C++ Software Design* “This is the sort of book I will buy a dozen copies of when it comes out so I can give it to my clients.”          ― **Eric Vought** , Software Engineer “Most modern books on software development fail to cover the basics of what makes a great software developer, instead spending their time on syntax or technology where in reality the greatest leverage possible for any software team is in having talented developers who really know their craft well. An excellent book.”          ― **Pete McBreen** , Independent Consultant “Since reading this book, I have implemented many of the practical suggestions and tips it contains. Across the board, they have saved my company time and money while helping me get my job done quicker! This should be a desktop reference for everyone who works with code for a living.”          ― **Jared Richardson** , Senior Software Developer, iRenaissance, Inc. “I would like to see this issued to every new employee at my company….”          ― **Chris Cleeland** , Senior Software Engineer, Object Computing, Inc. “If I’m putting together a project, it’s the authors of this book that I want. . . . And failing that I’d settle for people who’ve read their book.”          ― **Ward Cunningham** Straight from the programming trenches, ***The Pragmatic Programmer*** cuts through the increasing specialization and technicalities of modern software development to examine the core process–taking a requirement and producing working, maintainable code that delights its users. It covers topics ranging from personal responsibility and career development to architectural techniques for keeping your code flexible and easy to adapt and reuse. Read this book, and you’ll learn how to * Fight software rot; * Avoid the trap of duplicating knowledge; * Write flexible, dynamic, and adaptable code; * Avoid programming by coincidence; * Bullet-proof your code with contracts, assertions, and exceptions; * Capture real requirements; * Test ruthlessly and effectively; * Delight your users; * Build teams of pragmatic programmers; and * Make your developments more precise with automation.
Written as a series of self-contained sections and filled with entertaining anecdotes, thoughtful examples, and interesting analogies, ***The Pragmatic Programmer*** illustrates the best practices and major pitfalls of many different aspects of software development. Whether you’re a new coder, an experienced programmer, or a manager responsible for software projects, use these lessons daily, and you’ll quickly see improvements in personal productivity, accuracy, and job satisfaction. You’ll learn skills and develop habits and attitudes that form the foundation for long-term success in your career. You’ll become a Pragmatic Programmer.

### Sinossi
“One of the most significant books in my life.” *–Obie Fernandez, Author,* The Rails Way
“Twenty years ago, the first edition of The Pragmatic Programmer completely changed the trajectory of my career. This new edition could do the same for yours.” *–Mike Cohn, Author of* Succeeding with Agile *,* Agile Estimating and Planning *, and* User Stories Applied
“. . . filled with practical advice, both technical and professional, that will serve you and your projects well for years to come.” *–Andrea Goulet, CEO, Corgibytes, Founder, LegacyCode.Rocks*
“. . . lightning does strike twice, and this book is proof.” *–VM (Vicky) Brasseur, Director of Open Source Strategy, Juniper Networks*
***The Pragmatic Programmer** * is one of those rare tech books you’ll read, re-read, and read again over the years. Whether you’re new to the field or an experienced practitioner, you’ll come away with fresh insights each and every time.
Dave Thomas and Andy Hunt wrote the first edition of this influential book in 1999 to help their clients create better software and rediscover the joy of coding. These lessons have helped a generation of programmers examine the very essence of software development, independent of any particular language, framework, or methodology, and the Pragmatic philosophy has spawned hundreds of books, screencasts, and audio books, as well as thousands of careers and success stories.
Now, twenty years later, this new edition re-examines what it means to be a modern programmer. Topics range from personal responsibility and career development to architectural techniques for keeping your code flexible and easy to adapt and reuse. Read this book, and you’ll learn how to:
* Fight software rot
* Learn continuously
* Avoid the trap of duplicating knowledge
* Write flexible, dynamic, and adaptable code
* Harness the power of basic tools
* Avoid programming by coincidence
* Learn real requirements
* Solve the underlying problems of concurrent code
* Guard against security vulnerabilities
* Build teams of Pragmatic Programmers
* Take responsibility for your work and career
* Test ruthlessly and effectively, including property-based testing
* Implement the Pragmatic Starter Kit
* Delight your users

**What others in the trenches say about *The Pragmatic Programmer*… ** “The cool thing about this book is that it’s great for keeping the programming process fresh. The book helps you to continue to grow and clearly comes from people who have been there.”          ― **Kent Beck** , author of *Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change* “I found this book to be a great mix of solid advice and wonderful analogies!”          ― **Martin Fowler** , author of *Refactoring* and *UML Distilled* “I would buy a copy, read it twice, then tell all my colleagues to run out and grab a copy. This is a book I would never loan because I would worry about it being lost.”          ― **Kevin Ruland** , Management Science, MSG-Logistics “The wisdom and practical experience of the authors is obvious. The topics presented are relevant and useful…. By far its greatest strength for me has been the outstanding analogies―tracer bullets, broken windows, and the fabulous helicopter-based explanation of the need for orthogonality, especially in a crisis situation. I have little doubt that this book will eventually become an excellent source of useful information for journeymen programmers and expert mentors alike.”          ― **John Lakos** , author of *Large-Scale C++ Software Design* “This is the sort of book I will buy a dozen copies of when it comes out so I can give it to my clients.”          ― **Eric Vought** , Software Engineer “Most modern books on software development fail to cover the basics of what makes a great software developer, instead spending their time on syntax or technology where in reality the greatest leverage possible for any software team is in having talented developers who really know their craft well. An excellent book.”          ― **Pete McBreen** , Independent Consultant “Since reading this book, I have implemented many of the practical suggestions and tips it contains. Across the board, they have saved my company time and money while helping me get my job done quicker! This should be a desktop reference for everyone who works with code for a living.”          ― **Jared Richardson** , Senior Software Developer, iRenaissance, Inc. “I would like to see this issued to every new employee at my company….”          ― **Chris Cleeland** , Senior Software Engineer, Object Computing, Inc. “If I’m putting together a project, it’s the authors of this book that I want. . . . And failing that I’d settle for people who’ve read their book.”          ― **Ward Cunningham** Straight from the programming trenches, ***The Pragmatic Programmer*** cuts through the increasing specialization and technicalities of modern software development to examine the core process–taking a requirement and producing working, maintainable code that delights its users. It covers topics ranging from personal responsibility and career development to architectural techniques for keeping your code flexible and easy to adapt and reuse. Read this book, and you’ll learn how to * Fight software rot; * Avoid the trap of duplicating knowledge; * Write flexible, dynamic, and adaptable code; * Avoid programming by coincidence; * Bullet-proof your code with contracts, assertions, and exceptions; * Capture real requirements; * Test ruthlessly and effectively; * Delight your users; * Build teams of pragmatic programmers; and * Make your developments more precise with automation.
Written as a series of self-contained sections and filled with entertaining anecdotes, thoughtful examples, and interesting analogies, ***The Pragmatic Programmer*** illustrates the best practices and major pitfalls of many different aspects of software development. Whether you’re a new coder, an experienced programmer, or a manager responsible for software projects, use these lessons daily, and you’ll quickly see improvements in personal productivity, accuracy, and job satisfaction.

The Nightmare Stacks: A Laundry Files novel

**Alex Schwartz had a great job and a promising future – until he caught an unfortunate bout of vampirism, and agreed (on pain of death) to join the Laundry, Britain’s only counter-occult secret intelligence agency.**
His first assignment is in Leeds – his old hometown. But the thought of telling his parents he’s lost his job, let alone their discovering his ‘condition’, is causing Alex almost as much anxiety as his new lifestyle of supernatural espionage.
His only saving grace is Cassie Brewer, a student from the local Goth Festival who flirts with him despite his fear of sunlight (and girls). But Cassie has secrets of her own – secrets that make Alex’s night life seem positively normal . . .
*James Bond meets H. P. Lovecraft in the latest occult thriller from Hugo Award winner Charles Stross, in a series where British spies take on the supernatural.* **

The Nature of the New Mind

ABOUT THE BOOK:This book is the third volume in the series titled ‘Selections from the Decades’, and consist of twenty-three public talks that Krishnamurti gave between 1961 and 1968. Whereas in the 1950s, Krishnamurti dwelt largely on individual change, his focus here is on a radical mutation in human consciousness as a whole. Addressing large international audiences in different parts of the world, Krishnamurti points out that the present crisis is not just what we perceive outwardly in society; it really lies in the unconscious, deep within oneself. So what is required is not more knowledge or more collective action, but a totally new mind. And that is needed, says Krishnamurti, ‘to deal not only with the everlasting but also with the immediate problems of existence’. It is important to see the urgency of having such a mind now and not wait for time to bring it about. The new mind is not merely logical or intellectual; rather, it is a mind that is completely free of all its old patterns and has, therefore, the quality of stillness, love, and compassion. ‘What the world needs is compassion, not schemes. And compassion is the very nature of the new mind. Because the new mind is the unknown mind, it is not to be measured by the known,’ says Krishnamurti.

The longevity book

Cameron Diaz follows up her #1 *New York Times* bestseller, *The Body Book* , with a personal, practical, and authoritative guide that examines the art and science of growing older and offers concrete steps women can take to create abundant health and resilience as they age.
Cameron Diaz wrote *The Body Book* to help educate young women about how their bodies function, empowering them to make better-informed choices about their health and encouraging them to look beyond the latest health trends to understand their bodies at the cellular level. She interviewed doctors, scientists, nutritionists, and a host of other experts, and shared what she’d learned—and what she wished she’d known twenty years earlier.
Now Cameron continues the journey she began, opening a conversation with her peers on an essential topic that that for too long has been taboo in our society: the aging female body. In *The Longevity Book* , she shares the latest scientific research on how and why we age, synthesizing insights from top medical experts and with her own thoughts, opinions, and experiences.
*The Longevity Book* explores what history, biology, neuroscience, and the women’s health movement can teach us about maintaining optimal health as we transition from our thirties to midlife. From understanding how growing older impacts various bodily systems to the biological differences in the way aging effects men and women; the latest science on telomeres and slowing the rate of cognitive decline to how meditation heals us and why love, friendship, and laughter matter for health, *The Longevity Book* offers an all-encompassing, holistic look at how the female body ages—and what we can all do to age better.
Without sugarcoating the hard facts—a sixty-year-old body is different than a thirty-five-year-old body, no matter how much yoga you do—or romanticizing the upside—wisdom comes with age, if you live your life wisely—Cameron offers women a compassionate, informative, and intimate tour through the next stage of life.
