42 The Answer To Life The Universe And Everything from the Author: Mol Smith. Non-Fiction, 178 pages, 9x6 inches. A stunning challenge to the spate of books started by The God Delusion. A proper set of answers, full of original thought, and fresh vision, to the big questions which both Science and Religion fail to answer: why am I here? Is there a God? What happens when I die? What is reality? Do I have purpose? For everyone on the planet to have an opportunity to discover once and for all, their absolute purpose and destiny. Astounding, undeniable truth which is going to re-ignite controversy as both science and religion come under attack for failing the 6.5 billion people on the planet.

The Quirks Quarks Guide To Space from the Author: Jim Lebans. For everyone who’s curious about what’s new under (and over and around) the stars. Douglas Adams famously pronounced in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy that the answer to life, the universe, and everything was 42. Quirks & Quarks, whose approach to science owes almost as much to Adams as it does to Newton or Einstein or Hawking, have flipped that notion through a gap in the space-time continuum (or something like that) and come up with answers to the 42 essential questions about space. Much about the universe is very hard for most of us to grasp, and if anyone can explain these mind-bending aspects of the heavens above, it’s the Quirks & Quarks producers, who have been bringing Canadians understandable science, with trademark humour, for more than thirty years. In their Guide to Space, they answer such pressing questions as Where does space begin? Why is most of the universe missing? Is there intelligent life in the universe? And the real puzzler: What came before the Big Bang? They also answer questions we wish we’d thought to ask, such as Can you surf a gravity wave? and Why is the universe’s temperature on my TV? There are answers as well to far more practical questions, like What happens when you fall into a black hole? and How will the universe end? The answers, which have been vetted by a team of astronomers, are witty, authoritative, in-depth, accurate, up-to-date astronomically, and, of course, quirky. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Deep Thought from the Author: Gary Cox. As Douglas Adams points out, if there is no final answer to question, 'What is the meaning of life?', '42' is as good or bad an answer as any other. Indeed, 42 quotes might be even better! Gary Cox guides us through 42 of the most misunderstood, misquoted, provocative and significant quotes in the history of philosophy providing a witty and compelling commentary along the way. This entertaining and illuminating collection of quotes doesn't merely list who said what and when. Gary Cox claims that each quote is a philosophical thesis in itself. By exploring who a particular philosopher is and what he or she really meant when they said what they said, this book looks for the philosophy within the quote. Using the writings of everyone from Douglas Adams to A.J. Ayer and Thomas Aquinas to Karl Marx, Gary Cox takes us on a philosophical journey through history, culture and writing to bring us to a deeper understanding of why we think the way we do.

Learning Swift Programming from the Author: Jacob Schatz. Get started fast with Swift programming for iOS and OS X Learning Swift Programming is a fast-paced, hands-on introduction to writing production-quality iOS and OS X apps with Apple’s new programming language. Written for developers with previous experience in any other modern language, this book explains Swift simply and clearly, using relevant examples that solve realistic problems. Author Jacob Schatz’s popular Skip Wilson video tutorials on YouTube have already helped thousands of Apple developers get started with Swift. Now, he helps you take full advantage of Swift’s advanced design, remarkable performance, and streamlined development techniques. Step-by-step, you’ll move from basic syntax through advanced features such as closures and generics–discovering helpful tips and tricks along the way. After you’ve mastered Swift’s building blocks and learned about its key innovations, a full section of case studies walks you through building complete apps from scratch. Compare Swift with Objective-C, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, and C Collect data with arrays and dictionaries, and store it with variables and constants Group commonly-used code into functions for easy reuse Structure your code with enums, structs, and classes Use generics to get more done with less code Write closures to share small blocks of functionality Use optionals to write more robust, crash-resistant, and cleaner code Integrate existing Objective-C code into new Swift apps Program on the bit and byte level with advanced operators Implement efficient design patterns with protocols and delegates Create animated 2D games with SpriteKit, and 3D games with SceneKit Contents at a Glance 1 Getting Your Feet Wet Building Blocks of Swift Optionals: A Gift to Unwrap Tuples Number Types and Converting Between Them Coming to Swift from Objective-C and C 2 Collecting Data Using Arrays Modifying Arrays Using Dictionaries 3 Making Things Happen: Functions Defining Functions More on Parameters 4 Structuring Code: Enums, Structs, and Classes Enums Structs 5 Making a Game Building a User Interface (UI) The Action-Packed View Controller 6 Reusable Code: Closures What Are Closures?

The Frood from the Author: Jem Roberts. As a wise ape once observed, space is big – vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly so. However, if you look too closely at space, it becomes nothing but lumps of rock and sundry gases. Sometimes it's necessary to take a step back, and let a few billion years go by, before any of the true wonder and scope of the cosmos becomes apparent. Similarly, the late 20th century author, humorist and thinker Douglas Adams was big – vastly, hugely and thoroughly mind-bogglingly so, both in physical terms, and as a writer who has touched millions of readers, firing up millions of cerebellums all over planet Earth, for over 35 years – and for nearly half of that time, he hasn't even been alive. It would be ridiculous to pretend that Douglas Adams's life and work has gone unexamined since his dismayingly early death at 49 but throughout the decade since the last book to tackle the subject, the universes Adams created have continued to develop, to beguile and expand minds, and will undoubtedly do so for generations to come. An all-new approach to the most celebrated creation of Douglas Adams is therefore most welcome, and The Frood tells the story of Adams's explosive but agonizingly constructed fictional universe, from his initial inspirations to the posthumous sequel(s) and adaptations, bringing together a thousand tales of life as part of the British Comedy movements of the late 70s and 80s along the way. With the benefit of hindsight and much time passed, friends and colleagues have been interviewed for a fresh take on the man and his works.

from the Author: Peter Thiel. Ця книжка стане пусковим механізмом для тих, хто прагне мислити та створювати нове, а не копіювати відпрацьовані шаблони. Автор переконує: роблячи те, що ми вже знаємо, ми рухаємо світ від 1 до n, додаючи більше чогось вже знаного; проте щоразу, коли ми створюємо щось нове, ми ступаємо від 0 до 1. Тіль покроково описує дієвість експоненціального закону у світі стартапів, таємниці роботи із венчурним капіталом, а також інноваційні ідеї майбутнього, які змінять життя людей до невпізнаваності...

from the Author: Курт Воннеґут. Геніальний схиблений науковець робить приголомшливе відкриття, не переймаючись майбутнім свого творіння… Лід-дев’ять — винахід, страшніший за атомну бомбу. Одна його крихта може знищити все живе… І троє людей використали цю смертоносну речовину на власний розсуд… На перетині добра і зла ідеальний світ справді далекий від ідеалу, а як щодо самоцінності особистості, як щодо відповідальності за скоєне?..
