Il buon sonno. L'orologio della salute / Michael Terman, Ian McMahan

Milano : Feltrinelli, 2018

Universale economica ; 9147

Abstract: Un buon riposo notturno può essere difficile da ottenere e, a volte, la mattina ci alziamo ancora più stanchi della sera precedente. Perché? Non si tratta poi solo di sentirci privi di energie. I disturbi del sonno infatti spesso vanno di pari passo con il cattivo umore - dalla semplice svogliatezza alla depressione vera e propria - determinando un circolo vizioso per uscire dal quale gli psicofarmaci sembrano rappresentare la soluzione più semplice e a portata di mano. Oggi però la cronobiologia, cioè lo studio dei ritmi circadiani e della loro regolazione in base alla luce e all'oscurità, ha chiarito che questi problemi si basano sul funzionamento dell'orologio interno del cervello. Basato su decenni di ricerca medica, questo libro divulgativo spiega con grande semplicità le complesse dinamiche che regolano i nostri ritmi di sonno e veglia e mostra come si possa riequilibrarli con alcuni semplici rimedi, tra i quali un uso calibrato della fototerapia, l'esposizione controllata alla luce, la simulazione in interni dell'alba e del crepuscolo, l'assunzione di integratori alimentari naturali e la pianificazione del sonno. Con l'aiuto di questa preziosa guida, impareremo a ridare alla nostra vita nuova energia e vigore, ritrovando buona salute e serenità lungo tutte le sue fasi, dai primi anni alla vecchiaia. E scopriremo come ottenere esattamente il tipo di sonno di cui il nostro corpo ha bisogno.

Brave new world / Aldous Huxley

London : Vintage, 2018

Abstract: Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone in feeling discontent, harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations, where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress... Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.

Why the face? / Jean Jullien

[S.l.] : Phaidon, 2018

  • Non prenotabile
  • Copie totali: 1
  • A prestito: 0
  • Prenotazioni: 0

Abstract: A hilarious guessing game of facial reactions created by the author of bestselling This Is Not A Book Jean Jullien tickles the funnybone once again with a book of facial overreactions. Faces are presented first, allowing the reader to wager predictions of what may have prompted such an expression, before the dramatic answer is revealed. Why the face? reads the text alongside an agitated boy with eyes and nose scrunched up. Pick up the full-page flap to reveal a whole mess of smelly items, from stinky socks to an oozing trash can, and the text, Whoa, that stinks. Jullien masterfully provides enough clues for the reader to piece together the narrative, including both predictable and surprising scenarios. Based on young children's natural fascination with faces, this book encourages readers to practice empathy and build emotional intelligence, with cleverly simplified and humorously satisfying vignettes. A brilliant addition to Phaidon's growing Jean Jullien board book library.

The Sacred Home in Renaissance Italy / Abigail Brundin, Deborah Howard and Mary Laven

Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2018

Abstract: This book explores the rich devotional life of the Italian household between 1450 and 1600. Rejecting the enduring stereotype of the Renaissance as a secular age, this interdisciplinary study reveals the home to have been an important site of spiritual revitalization. Books, buildings, objects, spaces, images, and archival sources are scrutinized to cast new light on the many ways in which religion infused daily life within the household. Acts of devotion, from routine prayers to extraordinary religious experiences such as miracles and visions, frequently took place at home amid the joys and trials of domestic life - from childbirth and marriage to sickness and death. Breaking free form the usual focus on Venice, Florence and Rome, the work investigates practices of piety across the Italian peninsula, with particular attention paid to the city fo Naples, the Marche and the Venetian mainland or "terraferma". It also looks beyond the elite to consider artisanal and lower-status households, and reveals gender and age as factors that powerfully conditioned religious experience.

These colors are bananas / Jason Fulford & Tamara Shopsin

[S.l.] : Phaidon, 2018

Abstract: What colour is an apple? A dog? Grass? Young readers will be amazed by the range of possibilities What colour is a banana? It can be at least 25 different shades, according to this artful swatchbook of versatile subjects. An inversion of the way we typically look at colour, this book challenges readers' predispositions towards using a particular crayon for a particular object. 11 items are each presented alongside a grid of color ranges: the "apple" page features yellows, greens, and reds; the "egg" page a range of greens to grays; even "grass" is surprising, with suggestions of pink. The read-along text is playful and philosophical, poetic and factual… all towards expanding readers' assumptions. Inspired by the Whitney Museum's approach to looking at art, these books provide a new way to look at the world. Created for ages 2-4 years.

Fire and fury : inside the Trump White House / Michael Wolff

New York : Little, Brown, 2018

Abstract: The first nine months of Donald Trump's term were stormy, outrageous - and absolutely mesmerising. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, bestselling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself. In this explosive book, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations: - What President Trump's staff really thinks of him - What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama - Why FBI director James Comey was really fired - Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn't be in the same room - Who is really directing the Trump administration's strategy in the wake of Bannon's firing - What the secret to communicating with Trump is - What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers Never before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.
