It is both the classic inner-city hospital and a unique amalgam of history, insanity, beauty, and intellect. When Danielle Ofri enters these 250-year-old doors as a tentative medical student, she is immediately plunged into the teeming world of urban medicine: mysterious illnesses, life-and-death decisions, patients speaking any one of a dozen languages, and overworked interns devising creative strategies to cope with the feverish intensity of a big-city hospital.

11 Landscapes in My Lenses -
Auteur :
Genre : Photography
We can think that the world that we see is the same for all, Nevertheless every instant that happens is unrepeatable. Curiously the photographer has an almost magic authority: To interpret a moment and a place with shades of light. I want to share with you the world that I have seen, and I want to transmit my “how I have seen it”. These photographies do not try to reflect a beautiful world, simply they are my particular vision of this world. I hope that you enjoy it so much since me have enjoyed on having done this book.

13 Unholy Messenger - Stephen Singular
Auteur : Stephen Singular
Genre : True Crime
To all appearances, Dennis Rader was a model citizen in the small town of Park City, Kansas, where he had lived with his family almost his entire life. He was a town compliance officer, a former Boy Scout leader, the president of his church congregation, and a seemingly ordinary father and husband. But Rader's average life belied the existence of his dark, sadistic other self: he was the BTK serial killer.

The self-named BTK (for Bind, Torture, Kill) had terrorized Wichita for thirty-one years, not only with his brutal, sexually motivated crimes, but also through his taunting, elusive communications with the media and law enforcement. In 1974, BTK committed his first murders -- torturing and strangling four members of the Otero family -- and wrote the police an audacious letter declaring his responsibility for the Oteros' deaths and labeling himself, for the first time, BTK.

18 Tampering with the Dead - Stephen Singular

19 The Singular Universe and the Reality of Time - Roberto Mangabeira Unger & Lee Smolin
Auteur : Roberto Mangabeira Unger & Lee Smolin
Genre : Physics
Cosmology is in crisis. The more we discover, the more puzzling the universe appears to be. How and why are the laws of nature what they are? A philosopher and a physicist, world-renowned for their radical ideas in their fields, argue for a revolution. To keep cosmology scientific, we must replace the old view in which the universe is governed by immutable laws by a new one in which laws evolve. Then we can hope to explain them. The revolution that Roberto Mangabeira Unger and Lee Smolin propose relies on three central ideas. There is only one universe at a time. Time is real: everything in the structure and regularities of nature changes sooner or later. Mathematics, which has trouble with time, is not the oracle of nature and the prophet of science; it is simply a tool with great power and immense limitations. The argument is readily accessible to non-scientists as well as to the physi

30 When Men Become Gods - Stephen Singular
Auteur : Stephen Singular
Genre : Christianity
In When Men Become Gods, New York Times bestselling author Stephen Singular casts a light on a dark corner of religious extremism. He reveals a group of fundamentalists operating in the present-day United States, where teenage girls are kept in virtual bondage in the name of upholding the "sacred principle" of polygamy.

As the leader and self-proclaimed prophet of the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints, a sect of Mormonism based in isolated southern Utah, Warren Jeffs held sway over thousands of followers for nearly a decade. His rule was utterly tyrannical. In addition to coercing young girls into polygamous marriages with older men, Jeffs reputedly took scores of wives, many of whom were his father's widows. Television, radio, and newspapers were shunned, creating a hidden community where polygamy was prized above all else.

But in 2007, after a

37 Solitude - Michael Harris
Auteur : Michael Harris
Genre : Psychology
With a foreword by Nicholas Carr, author of the Pulitzer Prize–finalist The Shallows.

Today, society embraces sharing like never before. Fueled by our dependence on mobile devices and social media, we have created an ecosystem of obsessive connection. Many of us now lead lives of strangely crowded isolation: we are always linked, but only shallowly so.

The capacity to be alone, properly alone, is one of life’s subtlest skills. Real solitude is a powerful resource we can call upon—a crucial ingredient for a rich interior life. It inspires reflection, allows creativity to flourish, and improves our relationships with ourselves and, unexpectedly, with others. Idle hands can, in fact, produce the extraordinary. In living bigger and faster, we have forgotten the joys of silence, and undervalued how profoundly it can revolutionize our lives.

A classically trained actor, Curtis began his incredible 40-year career on stage but progressed rapidly to film and television. He was typecast early and it proved to be the best thing that could have happened.

But there’s more to Curtis’ story than that.

Born and bred a nerd, he spent his early years between Detroit, a city so nerdy that the word was coined there in 1951, and, improbably, Geneva, Switzerland. His adolescence and early adulthood was spent primarily between t

At the height of the Timbuctoo Mania, two hundred years ago, it was widely believed that the elusive Saharan city was fashioned in entirety from the purest gold - everything from the buildings to the cobble-stones, from the buckets to the bedsteads were said to be made from it.

43 A Singular Country - J.P. Donleavy
Auteur : J.P. Donleavy
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
A new and original work from "one of the most accomplished and original writers of our time", Joseph Heller. A Singular Country is J.P. Donleavy's idiosyncratic and personal view of Ireland told in the vernacular of the Irishman, which he has nearly, but not quite, become. "A country where the dead are forever living and which is at once magical, illogical, mysterious and infuriating -- a land that is mostly, and perhaps always will remain, a condition of the mind in which dreams can be your only trusted reality". The New York City-born author assumed the right to speak of his adopted country from his own struggles and early turmoils within its shores and from his "descent on both parental sides from ancient bog-trotters traceable as far back into the centuries as anyone can record or remember". J.P. Donleavy brings to vivid life the range of Ireland's people, from the small farmer to th

44 Only Child - Deborah Siegel & Daphne Uviller
Auteur : Deborah Siegel & Daphne Uviller
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
Only children don’t have to share bedrooms, toys, or the backseat of a car. They don’t have to share allowances, inheritances, or their parents’ attention. But when they get into trouble, they can’t just blame their imaginary friends. In Only Child, twenty-one acclaimed writers tell the truth about life without siblings—the bliss of solitude, the ache of loneliness, and everything in between.In this unprecedented collection, writers like Judith Thurman, Kathryn Harrison, John Hodgman, and Peter Ho Davies reflect on the single, transforming episode that defined each of them as an only child. For some it came while lurking around the edges of a friend’s boisterous family, longing to be part of the chaos. For others, it came in sterile hospital halls, while single-handedly caring for a parent with cancer. They write about the parents who raised them, from the devoted to t

45 A singular life - Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward
Auteur : Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward
Genre : Religion & Spirituality
"A Singular Life" is a novel published in 1895 by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward. It was the fourth highest best-selling book in the United States in 1896. The book was published in a period when Americans were exploring how the teachings of Jesus Christ could be applied to daily life. Several books considering the question were published in 1890s. A Singular Life, in this vein, features a protagonist named Emanuel Bayard who pursues Jesus-inspired humanitarianism by forsaking ties to his orthodox church. Among Bayard's projects is positively influencing a prostitute named Magdalena (or "Lena") to become more respectable and use her talent for singing for a better purpose. When he suggests she pursue a new career, specifically household service, she balks and refuses the stereotypical domestic role and instead works for a gunpowder factory.

46 A Singular Woman - Janny Scott
Auteur : Janny Scott
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
From the author of The Beneficiary: Fortune, Misfortune and the Story of My Father comes a major publishing event: an unprecedented look into the life of the woman who most singularly shaped Barack Obama-his mother.  

Barack Obama has written extensively about his father, but little is known about Stanley Ann Dunham, the fiercely independent woman who raised him, the person he credits for, as he says, "what is best in me." Here is the missing piece of the story.

Award-winning reporter Janny Scott interviewed nearly two hundred of Dunham's friends, colleagues, and relatives (including both her children), and combed through boxes of personal and professional papers, letters to friends, and photo albums, to uncover the full breadth of this woman's inspiring and untraditional life, and to show the remarkable extent to which she shaped the man

49 Singular - Thati Machado
Auteur : Thati Machado
Genre : Gay & Lesbian
"Noah sempre quis ser um garoto. Exatamente desse jeito. Com ponto final depois do substantivo masculino. Bom, ao menos era assim que as outras pessoas viam a situação. Para Noah, ele era um garoto. Novamente: ponto final. Durante toda uma vida Noah se sentiu deslocado, diferente, estranho. Era como se ele fosse um pacote que precisava vir acompanhado de cuidados e explicações. O que ele não sabia - mas estava prestes a descobrir - é que era único. Era singular.
Como muitos garotos - com ponto final - Noah também esperava encontrar alguém com quem dividir absolutamente tudo. E enquanto isso não acontecia, ele achou que seria uma excelente ideia curtir o carnaval na cidade maravilhosa. Ele só não esperava que a terra de clima quente e pessoas calorosas pudesse lhe oferecer muito mais. "
