A Short History of Nearly Everything

One of the world’s most beloved and bestselling writers takes his ultimate journey -- into the most intriguing and intractable questions that science seeks to answer. In A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson trekked the Appalachian Trail -- well, most of it. In In A Sunburned Country, he confronted some of the most lethal wildlife Australia has to offer. Now, in his biggest book, he confronts his greatest challenge: to understand -- and, if possible, answer -- the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there bei...

OUR POSITION IN SOUTH AFRICA. UNFORTUNATE in many respects as were the startling occurrences which took place in South Africa two years ago, yet there is one very distinct advantage which may be deduced from them. For a long period of years the British public had been treating South Africa with more or less of indifference, in so far as its political relations to the Empire were concerned. No doubt South Africa, and more particularly the Transvaal, had been engaging special attention in the financial world for so...

The General Book of the Tarot

One of the most fascinating areas of the occult - and one of the least understood is the subject of the Tarot, those mystical cards hundreds - perhaps thousands - of years old, which come down to us from an origin shrouded in mystery. Many things are claimed for the Tarot pack: it is reputed to have been the ancestor of our modern playing cards; it is supposed to contain all the Wisdom of the Ages, symbolically expressed; it is said to have the power to foretell the future. Whatever their powers, the Tarot cards never fail to fascinate the casual experimenter and to richly repay the serious student of their mysteries. Dr. Thierens offers a clear, concise explanation of the Tarot, both the Lesser and the Greater Arcana, and sets forth for the first time a carefully-worked-out system of correspondance between the Tarot and Astrology. He offers a key to divination with the cards that will be of great relevance as to those interested in both the Tarot and astrological studies.

Challenging what most of us assume to be verifiable truths in areas like history, literature, science, nature, and more,The Book of General Ignorance is a witty “gotcha” compendium of how little we actually know about anything. It’ll have you scratching your head wondering why we even bother to go to school. Think Magellan was the first man to circumnavigate the globe, baseball was invented in America, Henry VIII had six wives, Mount Everest is the tallest mountain? Wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong again. You...

In a twenty-year career marked by obsessive secrecy, brutality, and meticulous planning, Martin Cahill, a k a, The General, netted over 40 million pounds. His criminal record included assassination, kidnapping, bombings, and one of the world's largest art and gold heists! He was untouchable and fiercely loyal to his gang. Loved by the common man, his personal battle with the police made him a living legend. But Martin Cahill not only refused to respect the police, he refused to pay tribute to the IRA. And unlike the police who had to follow the letter of the law in their battle to bring down Ireland's most wanted, the IRA played by their own rules.
