Erscheint als aufwendige Turbo 30 (30th anniversary Edition)´´ mit 3 Silberlingen. Die erste Scheibe enthält das remasterte Album, während die weiteren beiden CD´s mit dem legendären 1986er ´´LIVE AT THE KEMPER ARENA (KANSAS CITY)´´- Spektakel der ´´Fuel for life´´-Tour punktet. ´´Turbo´´ gehört wohl zu den umstrittensten Alben von Judas Priest. Nach zwei reinrassigen Metal-Alben wirkte die Platte 1986 ungewohnt und fremd für Judas Priest-Fans. Doch Turbo war ein durchaus gelungenes Experiment der Band. Mit ´´Turbo Lover´´, ´´Private Property´´, ´´Parental Guidance´´ und ´´Out in the cold´´ hält Turbo gleich vier wahre Perlen für Judas Priest Fans bereit. Und auch ´´Rock You All Around The World´´ kann überzeugen. Etwas poppiger kommen lediglich ´´Wild Nights, Hot & Crazy Days´´ und ´´Hot For Love´´ daher.´´
Andrew ´´Ender´´ Wiggin thinks he is playing computer-simulated war games at the Battle School; he is, in fact, engaged in something far more desperate. Ender is the result of decades of genetic experimentation, Earth´s attempt to make the military genius that the planet needs in its all-out war with an alien enemy. Is Ender the general Earth needs? The only way to find out is to throw the child into ever-harsher training, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly. Ender Wiggin is six years old when his training begins. He will grow up fast. But Ender is not the only result of the experiment. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Ender´s two older siblings, Peter and Valentine, are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If, that is, the world survives. This, the author´s definitive edition, also includes an original postscript written and recorded by the author himself, Orson Scott Card! 1. Language: English.

With an introduction by Jeanette Winterson.Relax and relish Nigella Lawson´s delicious prose in her revelatory cookery book, published as an audiobook for the first time to celebrate 20 years of How to Eat. When Nigella Lawson’s first book, How to Eat, was published in 1998, two things were immediately clear: that this fresh and fiercely intelligent voice would revolutionise cookery writing and that How to Eat was an instant classic of the genre. Here was a versatile culinary bible, through which a generation discovered how to feel at home in the kitchen and found the confidence to experiment and adapt recipes to their own needs. This was the book to reach for when hastily organising a last-minute supper with friends, when planning a luxurious weekend lunch or contemplating a store-cupboard meal for one, or when trying to tempt a fussy toddler.

An irresistible mixture of memoir, biography, cultural analysis, experiment and hero-worship about one person´s enduring obsession. Anniversary Edition with new preface published to coincide with the new film, Judy, starring Rene Zellweger.
On 29th May 1919, British astronomers tested Einstein´s theory of relativity by measuring the path of the stars travelling near the sun during an eclipse. On 7th November 1919, the results of that experiment were announced in London, proving Einstein´s theory of relativity. A Theory of Everything (that Matters) has been written in celebration of this 100th anniversary. With the confirmation of Einstein´s theories at the beginning of the twentieth century, our understanding of the universe became much more complex. What does this mean for religious belief, and specifically Christianity? Does it mean, as so many people assume, the death of God? In A Theory of Everything (that Matters) Alister McGrath - Professor of Science and Religion at Oxford University - explores these questions, giving an overview of Einstein´s thought and scientific theories, including his nuanced thinking on the difference between the scientific enterprise and beliefs outside its realm. This groundbreaking book is for anyone intrigued by Einstein as one of the twentieth century´s most iconic figures, who wants to know what his theories mean for religion, and who is interested in the conversation between science and religions more broadly. ´An excellent study of Einstein´s theories in relation to his beliefs about God´ - starred review in PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
The overly scientific, always respectable, and socially awkward Alexander Banks has just been informed his name resides on a betrothal agreement right above the name of the worst chit in all of England. With a loophole that allows him to marry another without consequence before the 30th anniversary of his birth, he has only four weeks to find another woman and make her his wife. Being the logical scientist he is, Alex decides to take his friend´s advice and treat his quest for a bride just like a science experiment. Caroline Sinclair is still trying to scrape her jaw off the floor after hearing her cousin, Lady Olivia´s, latest announcement when the object of their conversation, Alex Banks, Olivia´s intended, arrives for what Caroline assumes is a bout of drawing-room chitchat with his betrothed. But when an experiment is mentioned, Caroline, who cannot resist a science experiment any more than she can deny her lungs air, volunteers to help before she even knows what his latest experiment is! 1.

On the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, the epic story of an enormous apartment building where Communist true believers lived before their destruction. The House of Government is unlike any other book about the Russian Revolution and the Soviet experiment. Written in the tradition of Tolstoy´s War and Peace, Grossman´s Life and Fate, and Solzhenitsyn´s The Gulag Archipelago, Yuri Slezkine´s gripping narrative tells the true story of the residents of an enormous Moscow apartment building where top Communist officials and their families lived before they were destroyed in Stalin´s purges. A vivid account of the personal and public lives of Bolshevik true believers, the book begins with their conversion to Communism and ends with their children´s loss of faith and the fall of the Soviet Union. Completed in 1931, The House of Government, later known as The House on the Embankment, was located across the Moscow River from the Kremlin. The largest residential building in Europe, it combined 505 furnished apartments with public spaces that included everything from a movie theater and a library to a tennis court and a shooting range. Slezkine tells the chilling story of how the building´s residents lived in their apartments and ruled the Soviet state until some 800 of them were evicted from the house and led, one by one, to prison or their deaths. Drawing on letters, diaries, and interviews, The House of Government weaves together biography, literary criticism, architectural history, and fascinating new theories of revolutions, millennial prophecies, and reigns of terror. The result is an unforgettable human saga of a building that, like the Soviet Union itself, became a haunted house, forever disturbed by the ghosts of the disappeared. 1. Language: English.

On their 100th anniversary, the story of the extraordinary scientific expeditions that ushered in the era of relativity.In 1919, British scientists led extraordinary expeditions to Brazil and Africa to test Albert Einstein´s revolutionary new theory of general relativity in what became the century´s most celebrated scientific experiment. The result ushered in a new era and made Einstein a global celebrity by confirming his dramatic prediction that the path of light rays would be bent by gravity.Today, Einstein´s theory is scientific fact. Yet the effort to ´´weigh light´´ by measuring the gravitational deflection of starlight during the May 29, 1919, solar eclipse has become clouded by myth and skepticism. Could Arthur Eddington and Frank Dyson have gotten the results they claimed? Did the pacifist Eddington falsify evidence to foster peace after a horrific war by validating the theory of a German antiwar campaigner? In No Shadow of a Doubt, Daniel Kennefick provides definitive answers by offering the most comprehensive and authoritative account of how expedition scientists overcame war, bad weather, and equipment problems to make the experiment a triumphant success. 1.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Chaos written by Tom O´Neill with Dan Piepenbring, read by Kevin Stillwell.A journalist’s 20-year obsession with the Manson murders brings shocking revelations about the most infamous crimes in American history: carelessness from police, misconduct by prosecutors and even potential surveillance by intelligence agents. What really happened in 1969?In 1999, when Tom O’Neill was assigned a magazine piece about the 30th anniversary of the Manson murders, he worried there was nothing new to say. Weren’t the facts indisputable? Charles Manson had ordered his teenage followers to commit seven brutal murders, and in his thrall, they’d gladly complied. But when O’Neill began reporting the story, he kept finding holes in the prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi’s narrative, long enshrined in the best-selling Helter Skelter. Before long, O’Neill had questions about everything from the motive to the manhunt. Though he’d never considered himself a conspiracy theorist, the Manson murders swallowed the next two decades of his career. He was obsessed.Searching but never speculative, Chaos follows O’Neill’s 20-year effort to rebut the ‘official’ story behind Manson. Who were his real friends in Hollywood, and how far would they go to hide their ties? Why didn’t law enforcement act on their many chances to stop him? And how did he turn a group of peaceful hippies into remorseless killers? O’Neill’s hunt for answers leads him from reclusive celebrities to seasoned spies, from the Summer of Love to the shadowy sites of the CIA’s mind-control experiments, on a trail rife with cover-ups and coincidences.Featuring hundreds of new interviews and dozens of never-before-seen documents from the LAPD, the FBI and the CIA, CHAOS mounts an argument that could be, according to Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Steven Kay, strong enough to overturn the verdicts on the Mans 1.
