Field Guide to the Amphibians and Reptiles of Britain and Europe
The taxonomy and systematics of European reptiles and amphibians have changed a lot in recent years, yet there is no modern, up-to-date field guide available that comprehensively covers all the species. The last illustrated field guide to European reptiles and amphibians was first published 38 years ago, and remains oudated despite occasional reprints and new editions. This major new field guide addresses this deficiency. Every species will be covered in detail with a focus on identification and geographical variation; species texts also cover distribution, habitat and behaviour. A detailed up-to-date map is also included for each species. Superb colour illustrations by talented artist Ilian Velikov depict every species and all major variations, and colour photographs are also included for most species. This groundbreaking new guide will become the definitive field reference for these two groups of animals.

From Calculus to Chaos
What is calculus really for? This book is a highly readable introduction to applications of calculus, from Newton's time to the present day. These often involve questions of dynamics, i.e. of how - and why - things change with time. Problems of this kind lie at the heart of much of applied mathematics, physics, and engineering. From Calculus to Chaos takes a fresh approach to the subject as a whole, by moving from first steps to the frontiers, and by highlighting only the most important and interesting ideas, which can get lost amid a snowstorm of detail in conventional texts. The book is aimed at a wide readership, and assumes only some knowledge of elementary calculus. There are exercises (with full solutions) and simple but powerful computer programs which are suitable even for readers with no previous computing experience. David Acheson's book will inspire new students by providing a foretaste of more advanced mathematics and showing just how interesting the subjectcan be.
There's a life that's better than the life you've imagined?.?.?. You wake up one morning and realize that the life you've dreamed of has eluded you. You sense that something better—something bigger—is waiting out there for you, but you can't quite put your finger on it. You know that fame and fortune aren't the answers to true satisfaction in life . . . but, then, what is? The answer lies in discovering and following your "mighty purpose" for life—a reason for living that is so much bigger than yourself that it transforms you, your relationships, and the world as a result. In Heroic Living, best-selling author and former investment banker Chris Lowney combines his business expertise with proven practices of Ignatian spirituality to help each of us—regardless of calling, career, or current situation—discover a mighty purpose and develop a personal life strategy to achieve it. By merging astute business knowledge and spiritual wisdom, Lowney provides the tools needed to make practical, long-term life changes that move us away from our fractured, compartmentalized lives and toward the satisfaction and wholeness that each of us desires so deeply. Praise for Chris Lowney and Heroic Living "Chris Lowney's most recent book is a substantive blend of 'why' and 'how' to construct a life of purpose and integrity amidst the exigencies and complexities of our fast-paced daily lives." —Stephen A. Privett, SJ, President, University of San Francisco "Lowney's whole-life strategy connects us with our deepest beliefs, and connects these beliefs with what we do every day to 'make the world not only life-giving and sustaining but beautiful and interesting.'?" —Thomas M. Loarie, Chairman and CEO, Mercator MedSystems, Inc. "This book is not about guaranteed steps to success but suggests a thoughtful and convincing path to an integrated life." —Karen M. Ristau, EdD, President, NCEA "Lowney's powerful book refreshingly integrates strategic management, religious tradition, and human stories. The book is full of teachable moments that help one view life from the 'inside out' rather than the 'outside in'—calling all of us to a better version of ourselves." —Michael D. Connelly, President and CEO, Catholic Healthcare Partners "This work is a welcomed contribution for anyone longing for a more authentic and purposeful life." —Steve G. W. Moore, Executive Director, M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust
