Australia Penguin 1996 0140259376 / 9780140259377 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
viii + 159 pages. How did the universe come to exist? Are we alone in the vastness of the cosmos? Can scientists solve the riddle of time? What is the ghost in the machine? Is there a God? In these lucid and engaging conversations, world-renowned physicist Paul Davies and persistent iconoclast Phillip Adams examine the whys and wherefores of the cosmos; its beginning, a choice of endings, and where - if at all - humans fit in. 'One of the great tragedies in trying to explain basic physics and cosmology, indeed any science, to the general public is that most people are afraid of mathematics. They don't like it and they don't know much of it. and consequently they are shut off from the language and poetry of nature." (Paul Davies) "Whilst disagreeing with him over the biggest of big questions - the question of God - I find Paul the most exhilarating tour guide of the cosmos and the counter-intuitive worlds of science since Lewis Carroll and Douglas Adams." (Phillip Adams) - From the six part television series Paul Davies: "The Big Questions" directed by Mike Piper and produced by Piper Films, in conjunction with the South Australian Film Corporation and SBS Independent.

Helping Your Baby to Sleep: Why Gentle Techniques Work Best, Gethin, Anni; Macgregor, Beth

Australia Finch Pub 2011 1876451750 / 9781876451752 Soft Cover Good 12mo 
xxii + 202 indexed pages. This book offers parents ways of creating the conditions for better sleep for their babies, allowing them to feel loved and safe, and without endangering a baby's emotional and mental health. this book is about responsive parenting. It is about how babies thrive when parents are sensitive to their needs - during the day and the night. It looks at baby sleep and shows that babies wake up at night and need help to settle for many good reasons, as frustrating as this may be to their parents. Sleep training, which aims to teach children to fall asleep independently by leaving them to cry without comfort, is the opposite of the authors' approach. It has been popular among parents and widely recommended by health professionals. However, an explosion of new research in early childhood development in recent years has led many to ask: Is sleep training really something we should be doing to our children? the authors present fascinating research into how babies develop and how infant sleep works. they give many examples and recount the experiences of parents. their methods are adaptable and loving, even if they mean spending more time, more care, and more energy on parents and their babies.

12 Green, Toby; Welling, Ray The Men's Room: A thinking man's guide to surviving women of the next Millennium
Australia Random House 1999 0091841887 / 9780091841881 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
xxi + 220 indexed pages including bibliography. After thirty years of hard work by feminists all around the world, women now have a much better idea of what they want and how to get it. Men, on the other hand, don't know if they're Arthur or Martha. They have been told in no uncertain terms that the old ways of relating to the opposite sex are not on, but they haven't been involved in setting any new terms of engagement. For men, the rise of the women's movement has been marked by the ostracism of the macho man, the rise and fall of the SNAG, the emergence of the loveable and laughable dope. Sadly, it has also been accompanied by a dramatic rise in domestic violence, divorce, workaholism and suicide.Psychologist Toby Green has seen and treated increasing numbers of men in crisis. In "The Men's Room" she chronicles the mess men are in, and more importantly, offers a sensible solution to the crisis. Toby has written a prescription that men can follow which will take them into the next millennium as integrated individuals and fulland equal partners with women.Toby’s no-nonsense style works as well on paper as it does on the couch. This book is liberally sprinkled with anecdotes from Toby’s files, stories all men - and women - will identify with. Her candid observations and wise and witty advice makes "The Men's Room" the definitive guide for confused men at the end of the millennium.

When Annie hates Tucker's 'new release', a terrible demo of his most famous album, it's the last straw - Duncan cheats on her and she promptly throws him out. Via an internet discussion forum, Annie's harsh opinion reaches Tucker himself, who couldn't agree more. He and Annie start an unlikely correspondence which teaches them both something about moving on from years of wasted time. Nick Hornby's compelling new novel, four years after "A Long Way Down", is about the nature of creativity and obsession, and how two lonely people can gradually find each other.
