  • Helte af Stephen Fry
    af Stephen Fry

    Der er helte – og så er der græske helte. Stephen Fry genfortæller de græske heltes historier. Der er hårrejsende jagter, farefulde færd gennem sindrige labyrinter, umulige gåder og blodtørstige monstre. Historierne om os dødelige mænd og kvinder og hvad vi er i stand til, når heltemodet er størst, er dramatiske og morsomme, tragiske og tidløse.I HELTE indfanger Stephen Fry den græske mytologis vidunderlige historier og deres relevans for den moderne læser. De græske myter er blandt de mest indflydelsesrige historier, der nogensinde er blevet fortalt, nedarvet gennem årtusinder. De har inspireret forfattere og kunstnere fra Shakespeare til ­Michelangelo og fra James Joyce til Walt Disney.

  • Sprog af Mikkel Wallentin
    af Mikkel Wallentin

    Sprog er alfa og omega. Det er ved hjælp af symboler som dem her i bogen, at vi kan finde ud af at leve sammen og forstå hinanden. Eller misforstå. Sprog er med andre ord skyld i både krig og kærlighed. Takket være sproget kan vi endda samle tankerne om en tænkepause. Sprog har gjort os til mennesker - og som mennesker unikke i dyreriget. Og sprog fortsætter med at forme os. For ifølge Mikkel Wallentin, sprognørd og hjerneforsker ved Aarhus Universitet, tyder noget på, at vi op igennem evolutionen har fremelsket vores talegaver. - Sprog er nemlig også sexet.

  • 100 myter om allergi af Jesper Brandt Andersen Spar 19%
    af Jesper Brandt Andersen

    Ifølge Astma-Allergi Danmark har hver femte dansker allergi. Mange mennesker lever hver dag med gener og belastninger, som kan forringe livskvaliteten. Flere er ramt af gentagen nysen, eksem, kløe, tilstoppet næse, tør hud etc.Allergi er en overreaktion i immunsystemet på ellers normalt uskadelige stoffer, og både voksne og børn rammes af sygdommen. Med en så stor gruppe af mennesker, der er berørt af allergi, er det kun naturligt, at myter om sygdommen florerer. Derfor laver vi nu bogen 100 myter om allergi for at finde hoved og hale i de ofte modstridende udsagn om sygdommen.Myterne er f.eks.: ‘OPVÆKST I ET HJEM MED PELSDYR ØGER RISIKOEN FOR UDVIKLING AF ASTMA’, ‘ALLERGI KAN UDLØSES AF STRESS’ og ‘ALLERGI ER LIGESÅ ALMINDELIGT PÅ LANDET SOM I BYEN’.100 myter om allergi er den tiende bog i myteserien fra FADL’s Forlag. Den går mere ind i det sundhedsfaglige felt end de seneste udgivelser om mad, sex og kærlighed. Forfatteren bag bogen er børnelæge Jesper Brandt Andersen, der tidligere har skrevet bøgerne Børnelægens store bog om barnets sygdomme og biografien om den danske anatom Thomas Bartholin.

    af Carol Fisher Saller

    Longtime manuscript editor andChicago Manual of Styleguru Carol Fisher Saller has negotiated many a standoff between a writer and editor refusing to compromise on the ';rights' and ';wrongs' of prose styling. Saller realized that when these sides squared off, it was often the reader who lost. In her search for practical strategies for keeping the peace,The Subversive Copy Editorwas born. Saller's ideas struck a chord, and the little book with big advice quickly became a must-have reference for copy editors everywhere.In this second edition, Saller adds new chapters, on the dangers of allegiance to outdated grammar and style rules and on ways to stay current in language and technology. She expands her advice for writers on formatting manuscripts for publication, on self-editing, and on how not to be ';difficult.' Saller's own gaffes provide firsthand (and sometimes humorous) examples of exactly what not to do. The revised content reflects today's publishing practices while retaining the self-deprecating tone and sharp humor that helped make the first edition so popular. Saller maintains that through carefulness, transparency, and flexibility, editors can build trust and cooperation with writers.The Subversive Copy Editorbrings a refreshingly levelheaded approach to the classic battle between writers and editors. This sage advice will prove useful and entertaining to anyone charged with the sometimes perilous task of improving the writing of others.

This fascinating book, complete with photographs, puts scores of historical events to the clock, including the four score and seven years ago Gettysburg Address--which lasted just two minutes in 1863.It took 43 seconds for the atomic bomb to be dropped on Hiroshima.

Beleidigungen auf dem Schulhof findet er völlig in Ordnung – solange sie im dreihebigen Jambus erfolgen. Und Metaphern wie „Opferabo" und „Eckenkind" wecken in ihm den Stolz des begeisterten Germanisten. Johannes Schröder war selbst 12 Jahre lang Deutschlehrer, hat seine Schüler mit Gedichtinterpretationen gequält und dabei täglich tapfer die Sinnfrage unterdrückt. Bis er schließlich ausstieg und erfolgreicher Comedian wurde ... Johannes Schröder ist studierter Deutschlehrer und Comedian/Kabarettist. Was sich wie ein Widerspruch anhört, ist letztlich eine humoristische Form der Selbstverteidigung. Nach 12 Jahren Schuldienst und dem Nebenjob als Pausenaufsicht befindet sich der Wahlkölner alias „Herr Schröder" gegenwärtig mit seinem ersten Comedy-Soloprogramm „World of Lehrkraft" auf großer Live-Tour durch Deutschland, Österreich und die Schweiz.

    A funny and useful grammar book! There are many grammar and usage books that give advice on correct English. This isn't one of them. The Elements of Expression targets expressiveness as a goal apart from getting it technically right. Imagine the yawns a sportscaster would induce by announcing, "e;His bat struck the ball and the ball went into the stands,"e; instead of "e;He took that ball downtown!"e; And why say, "e;I'd prefer it if you didn't volunteer your opinions,"e; if what you really mean is "e;When I want your advice, I'll beat it out of you"e; (Chuck Norris, Code of Silence)? Written with uncommon wit and humor, The Elements of Expression offers writers, speakers, and self-improvers a fresh look at how they express (or fail to express) their thoughts and feelings. Plotnik supplies many engaging examples of adventurous language to show the tremendous power of words to describe and enliven human experience. For people who care about language and want to write or speak forcefully, effectively-in a word, expressively-this is the audiobook to turn on!
