Baby Sleep Solutions Book Description:

BABY SLEEP SOLUTIONS addresses one of the most vexing areas that any parent can face - trying to get their baby to go to sleep easily and to sleep for longer periods as they get older. There's no such thing as a 'one-size-fits-all' theory and BABY SLEEP SOLUTIONS will provide readers with information about the many different approaches that can help a child get a good night's sleep, from controlled crying methods, through gentler methods such as fading, to the baby-led approach of co-sleeping. The book weighs up the pros and cons of each, and most importantly helps parents to decide which method will best suit them and their child. With chapters on each phase of a baby's life until the age of two, this book is the only book on sleep a new parent should need.

Infrahumanisms Book Description:

In Infrahumanisms Megan H. Glick considers how conversations surrounding nonhuman life have impacted a broad range of attitudes toward forms of human difference such as race, sexuality, and health. She examines the history of human and nonhuman subjectivity as told through twentieth-century scientific and cultural discourses that include pediatrics, primatology, eugenics, exobiology, and obesity research. Outlining how the category of the human is continuously redefined in relation to the infrahuman—a liminal position of speciation existing between the human and the nonhuman—Glick reads a number of phenomena, from early twentieth-century efforts to define children and higher order primates as liminally human and the postwar cultural fascination with extraterrestrial life to anxieties over AIDS, SARS, and other cross-species diseases. In these cases the efforts to define a universal humanity create the means with which to reinforce notions of human difference and maintain human-nonhuman hierarchies. In foregrounding how evolving definitions of the human reflect shifting attitudes about social inequality, Glick shows how the consideration of nonhuman subjectivities demands a rethinking of long-held truths about biological meaning and difference.

Absolutely Smashing It Book Description:

***Unmissable, hilarious and kind, this is the first novel from Kathryn Wallace, who blogs as I Know, I Need to Stop Talking*** "SAM! AVA! Get downstairs, NOW. Have you done your TEETH? HAIR? SHOES? Come on, come on, come on, we're going to be bastarding late again. No, I haven't seen Lego Optimus Prime, and nor do I give a shit about his whereabouts. Sam, will you stop winding your sister up and take this model of the Shard that I painstakingly sat up and created for you last night so that I wouldn't be in trouble with your teacher. I mean, so that you wouldn't be in trouble with your teacher. No, it doesn't smell of 'dirty wine'. Well, maybe it does a little bit. Look, Sam, I haven't got time to argue. Just hold your nose and get in the car, okay? AVA! TEETH! HAIR! SHOES!" Gemma is only just holding it together - she's a single parent, she's turning 40 and her seven-year-old daughter has drawn a cruelly accurate picture which locates Gemma's boobs somewhere around her knees. So when her new next-door neighbour, Becky, suggests that Gemma should start dating again, it takes a lot of self-control not to laugh in her face. But Becky is very persuasive and before long Gemma finds herself juggling a full-time job, the increasingly insane demands of the school mums' Facebook group and the tricky etiquette of a new dating world. Not only that, but Gemma has to manage her attraction to her daughter's teacher, Tom, who has swapped his life in the City for teaching thirty six to seven year olds spelling, grammar, basic fractions - and why it's not ok to call your classmate a stinky poo-bum... It's going to be a long year - and one in which Gemma and Becky will learn a really crucial lesson: that in the end, being a good parent is just about being good enough. Readers love this hilarious, fast paced slice of family life: ***** Utterly hysterical - NetGalley Reader ***** Brilliant...

My Many Lives Book Description:

Sigrid Kendall, née Baroness Rüdt von Collenberg, was born in 1930 into the rarefied world of Central European aristocracy with all that title and wealth afforded—castles, estates, and hunting lodges throughout Germany, the Netherlands and Poland, idyllic playgrounds of nature, horseback riding, carriage rides, and nights at the opera. Her childhood, however, coincided with the rise of Hitler, and by the time she was nine years old, her country was on the march toward Russia; one of her earlier family’s houses had been destroyed in the first Allied air raid; and her beloved father, an officer with the German cavalry, had been killed. Yet through a child’s eyes, Germany was home and Hitler, with his mesmerizing radio voice, promising “a thousand years of peace,” seemed like the rightful leader. Post-war Germany brought to her teenage self a different story, a different life—one of shame for the atrocities her country committed, and one in which the complete devastation of her country was the great equalizer among the people. The impact that those post-war years had on Kendall would have a lasting effect on her worldview: to question authority; to earn what you get; and to look out not only for others, but also for yourself. She carried this philosophy with her into a new life in America—immigrating at age twenty-three, newly wedded—and it kept her grounded, even as she fell in love for a second time and assumed the unlikely role of “corporate wife” upon marrying one of the most powerful corporate leaders in the United States. Her life suddenly became one filled with entertaining heads of state and traveling the world over. But for Kendall, her children would always come first and Germany would keep hold of her heart. Narrated with candor and grace, My Many Lives is a deeply moving account of a remarkable life, fractured into so many lives with its unexpected turns, and the true importance of love, loyalty, and resilience.
