A provocative novel by one of the most influential French writers, Recollections of the Golden Triangle is a tour de force: a literary thriller constructed of wildly diverse elements—fantasy and dream, erotic invention, and the stuff of popular fiction and movies taken to its farthest limits.   Revised in by New Yorker writer E.B. White (Charlotte’s Web), The Elements of Style has managed to maintain its original purpose over the years, even as our language has become less formal. That’s because the rules aren’t suggestions but grammatical demands for the composition of sentences, paragraphs and total bodies of work.

"The challenge of books such as these is that, in the wrong hands, the contents can come across as banal generalities and just so much hokum. But the appeal of The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking lies in that its authors are mathematicians by profession, and it shows in how the book is written. It's a very systematic book about being organized.   Ocean's 11 meets Spy School in this hilarious illustrated middle-grade series featuring the world's greatest minds."Let the official record show that, I, Nikki Tesla, did not intend to destroy the world."There are only so many times a kid can invent an instrument of global destruction without getting grounded. So when Nikki's death ray accidentally blows up her bedroom (if you can call a pet.

Scaliger) came the cult of genius as creative individuality, which reached its apogee in the romantic period, as exemplified by the preromantic Sturm und Drang in Germany, romanticism, and the theories, evolved from romanticism and characterized by the opposition of genius and the masses.   Without this book, we might still live among Jello salads, overdone roasts and vegetables boiled to within an inch of their lives. On its appearance in , Mastering the Art of French Cooking delivered the basics of everyday French cooking to an American audience, courtesy of the three authors (and co-founders of Paris’ L’Ecole des Trois Gourmands), Julia Child, Simone Beck and Louisette.
