Author: Noah Strycker
Brand: Noah Strycker
An entertaining and profound look at the lives of birds, illuminating their surprising world—and deep connection with humanity.
Birds are highly intelligent animals, yet their intelligence is dramatically different from our own and has been little understood. As we learn more about the secrets of bird life, we are unlocking fascinating insights into memory, relationships, game theory, and the nature of intelligence itself.
The Thing with Feathers explores the astonishing homing abilities of pigeons, the good deeds of fairy-wrens, the influential flocking abilities of starlings, the deft artistry of bowerbirds, the extraordinary memories of nutcrackers, the lifelong loves of albatrosses, and other mysteries—revealing why birds do what they do, and offering a glimpse into our own nature.
Drawing deep from personal experience, cutting-edge science, and colorful history, Noah Strycker spins captivating stories about the birds in our midst and shares the startlingly intimate coexistence of birds and humans. With humor, style, and grace, he shows how our view of the world is often, and remarkably, through the experience of birds. You’ve never read a book about birds like this one.

List price: $92.00
Introduction to Kinesiology: Studying Physical Activity, Third Edition, explains the evolving discipline of kinesiology, demonstrating how its many subject areas integrate into a unified body of knowledge. This all-inclusive approach gives students a solid background in the field and prepares them for further study and course work. Engaging and jargon-free, this outstanding text also introduces students to the available job prospects and areas of study and professional practice in kinesiology.
Introduction to Kinesiology, Third Edition, orients and prepares students for in-depth studies in their areas of interest. The broad scope of this text acknowledges students' diverse interests and aspirations in teaching and coaching, professional, and scholarly career tracks. Within the text, top kinesiologists expand discussion of physical activity beyond exercise, sport, or health-related activity in order to broaden conceptions of physical activity and the potential contributions of kinesiology.
The book is organized into three parts: Experiencing Kinesiology, Scholarly Study of Kinesiology, and Professional Practice in Kinesiology. Throughout the text, emphasis on the integration of experience, formal study, and professional practice seeks to balance the importance of these unique and interrelated dimensions of the discipline.
-Experiencing Kinesiology provides broad discussion of how physical activity experiences in sport, exercise, work, rehabilitation, and daily living contribute to the understanding of kinesiology. This section concentrates on how kinesiologists design and manipulate physical activity experiences. It also discusses the subjective aspects of physical activity, inviting students to consider various types of knowledge and understanding to be gleaned from the experience of physical activity.
-Scholarly Study of Kinesiology introduces students to the academic subdisciplines of kinesiology, including philosophy, history, and sociology of physical activity; motor behavior; sport and exercise psychology; and biomechanics and physiology of physical activity. Job descriptions of professionals in each subdiscipline educate students on academic careers available, and practical, real-world applications illustrate the importance of the subdiscipline and how it may relate or contribute to a variety of professional endeavors.
-Professional Practice in Kinesiology defines the responsibilities and requirements of professionals in health and fitness, therapeutic exercise, teaching, coaching, and sport management. Using a step-by-step process, students can determine whether their interest, talent, and motivation are appropriate for a career in kinesiology. Work setting analyses, educational qualifications, case studies, profiles of working professionals, and career advice provide additional information for career considerations.
Both new and returning contributors share their perspectives in fully updated chapters complemented by full-color photos and illustrations. Professional Profiles, interviews with kinesiology professionals found throughout the text, illustrate how knowledge of kinesiology subareas applies to professional practice. Chapter objectives help students keep the main ideas in mind as they read through the chapter, and chapter summaries can be found at the end of each chapter to reinforce ideas. Key points and sidebars supplement information in the text. Study questions at the end of each chapter help students focus on key areas of the text. Exercises and activities actively involve students in learning the material.
Introduction to Kinesiology, Third Edition, is also available as an e-book.

|Fundamental Laboratory Approaches for Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Lowest new price: $48.00
Lowest used price: $27.85
Author: Alexander J. Ninfa
Ninfa/Ballou/Benore is a solid biochemistry lab manual, dedicated to developing research skills in students, allowing them to learn techniques and develop the organizational approaches necessary to conduct laboratory research.
Ninfa/Ballou/Benore focuses on basic biochemistry laboratory techniques with a few molecular biology exercises, a reflection of most courses which concentrate on traditional biochemistry experiments and techniques. The manual also includes an introduction to ethics in the laboratory, uncommon in similar manuals. Most importantly, perhaps, is the authors' three-pronged approach to encouraging students to think like a research scientist: first, the authors introduce the scientific method and the hypothesis as a framework for developing conclusive experiments; second, the manual's experiments are designed to become increasingly complex in order to teach more advanced techniques and analysis; finally, gradually, the students are required to devise their own protocols. In this way, students and instructors are able to break away from a "cookbook" approach and to think and investigate for themselves.
Suitable for lower-level and upper-level courses; Ninfa spans these courses and can also be used for some first-year graduate work.

Author: Barry Werth
Brand: Brand: Simon Schuster
Join journalist Barry Werth as he pulls back the curtain on Vertex, a start-up pharmaceutical company, and witness firsthand the intense drama being played out in the pioneering and hugely profitable field of drug research. Founded by Joshua Boger, a dynamic Harvard- and Merck-trained scientific whiz kid, Vertex is dedicated to designing -- atom by atom -- both a new life-saving immunosuppressant drug, and a drug to combat the virus that causes AIDS.
You will be hooked from start to finish, as you go from the labs, where obsessive, fiercely competitive scientists struggle for a breakthrough, to Wall Street, where the wheeling and dealing takes on a life of its own, as Boger courts investors and finally decides to take Vertex public. Here is a fascinating no-holds-barred account of the business of science, which includes an updated epilogue about the most recent developments in the quest for a drug to cure AIDS.
From test tubes to the Wall Street IPO and beyond, this is the riveting true story of a start-up pharmaceutical company working to create an anti-AIDS drug. Scientifically accurate, yet written with an attention to plot, timing, dialogue, and development of character more characteristic of the best thrillers.

Regenesis tells of recent advances that may soon yield endless supplies of renewable energy, increased longevity and the return of long-extinct species.”New Scientist
In Regenesis, Harvard biologist George Church and science writer Ed Regis explore the possibilitiesand perilsof the emerging field of synthetic biology. Synthetic biology, in which living organisms are selectively altered by modifying substantial portions of their genomes, allows for the creation of entirely new species of organisms. These technologiesfar from the out-of-control nightmare depicted in science fictionhave the power to improve human and animal health, increase our intelligence, enhance our memory, and even extend our life span. A breathtaking look at the potential of this world-changing technology, Regenesis is nothing less than a guide to the future of life.
