This is not a satire, but it takes a satirical approach to shedding light upon a very dark subject: narcissistic abuse. It is intended to demonstrate to those struggling with codependency just how narcissists actually view them. By listening to their "play book", codependents should be able to recognize covert abuse and avoid its pernicious effects. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Hawking.

Explore the secrets of the universe with selections from the works of three of the greatest scientific minds of our lifetime. Widely regarded as the most brilliant theoretical physicist since Einstein, Stephen W. Hawking has delved into today's most important scientific ideas about the cosmos, expanded upon the rich history of scientific thought, and reveled in the complexities of the universe in which we live. John Boslough's Stephen W. Hawking's Universe provides an introduction to the mysterious world of black holes and singularities. Timothy Ferris takes an imaginative look at the great challenge of how to understand, interpret, and reconcile the realms of mind and universe, and James Gleick, in Chaos, records the birth of a new science, and a new way of understanding the growth of complexity in nature. 1.

“My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.” - Stephen Hawking From the dawn of time, man has sought to understand the universe and his place in it. How did the Earth and the Solar System come to be? How was the universe created?Like other scientific disciplines, astronomy and astrophysics is one big detective story. Hypotheses are formed, observations taken, and experiments performed in the search for universal laws that describe all that we see. A good hypothesis or theory will make predictions of future observations, the results of which will either refute the theory, or be consistent with it.Astronomy is at a distinct disadvantage over other branches of science in one crucial way: For the most part, our observations only consist of photons (i.e. light) from far away sources, rarely can we touch and manipulate the things we observe, and thus create our own controls for an “experiment”. We must wait for those far-away objects to cooperate.The light must be analyzed in many different ways (variations in space, time, intensity, and frequency to name just a few), comparing different objects with one another, and making informed opinions upon the results. The light over the whole electromagnetic spectrum from a particular “target” must be explained in a consistent way using the laws of physics, and often it's back to the telescope for a new set of observations when some part of the theory proves inadequate. Or, back to some intensive computations. Nevertheless, astronomers and astrophysicists have done remarkably well over the last couple of centuries, allowing us to present an overview of how the universe functions. In this resourceful guide, common and uncommon questions about the universe will be explained in comprehensive but easy-to-understand terms. You’ll learn the answers to some of the most important questions, including: How do stars form? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim D Johnston.

Winner of the 2016 Pinnacle Book Achievement Award for Best Book in Spiritual Self Help Finalist of the 2017 Body Mind Spirit Book Awards All enlightened beings, most founders of religions and many renowned scientists knew and understood the six principles of enlightenment. These universal truths have been written about, taught and discussed for thousands of years yet remain shrouded in mystery and misinterpretation. This book seeks to remove that shroud. The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life is an intellectual and spiritual work that explains the six significant universal truths woven throughout science, religion and philosophy. These principles draw upon thousands of years of wisdom and are presented in a concise, accessible format. Each principle is defined and has an explanation on its application to life; they are further supported by quotes of wisdom from enlightened beings, philosophers, artists and scientists like Buddha, Albert Einstein, Rumi, Stephen Hawking and Jesus. Understanding the six principles then unlocks the meaning of life which is explained in the final chapter.
Modern physics is heady stuff. It seems that barely a week goes by without some new astounding science story; some revelation about hidden dimensions, multiple universes, the holographic principle or incredible cosmic coincidences. But is it true? What evidence do we have for super-symmetric squarks', or superstrings vibrating in an 11-dimensional space-time? How do we know that we live in a multiverse? How can we tell that the universe is a hologram projected from information encoded on its boundary? Doesn't this sound like a fairy story? In Farewell to Reality Jim Baggott asks whether all that we currently know about the universe is based upon science or fantasy. In addition he wonders whether these high priests of fairy tale physics - such as John Barrow, Paul Davies, David Deutsch, Brian Greene, Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku, Gordon Kane and Leonard Susskind - are the emperor's latest tailors. Praise for Jim Baggott: A shimmering tour d'horizon. Quantum theory may deny us the possibility of properly comprehending physical reality, but Baggott's account is smart and consoling. Kirkus Reviews. Jim Baggott's inspired - and inspiring - idea of presenting the history of quantum physics in terms of 40 key moments works both as an introduction for the uninitiated and as a refresher for anyone who thinks they know the story. John Gribbin. I never read such a good, comprehensive account as Jim Baggott's...highly recommended. A.N. Wilson. The best popular science book of the year to date by far. popularscience.co.uk
