Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? How much do parents really matter? These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He studies the riddles of everyday life--from cheating and crime to parenting and sports--and reaches conclusions that turn conventional wisdom on its head. Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They set out to explore the inner workings of a crack gang, the truth about real estate agents, the secrets of the Ku Klux Klan, and much more. Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, they show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives--how people get what they want or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

Unlocked Silences is a collection of abstracts, poems and excerpts written on tissue papers over a couple of years. It is a dive deep into the circles of emotion, empathy, acceptance, healing and insights into a different perspective towards life. In the voice of a budding adolescent, the book cascades into day-to day-shortcomings, carved into poetry and at the same time, embraces you in silence and stillness of thought. The book is an attempt to connect with the reader, to reflect upon them, unbiased and together and embrace a new beginning. With simplified use of grammar and vocabulary, this book seeks nothing but the companionship of all. With this debut book, the author aims to connect to one and to all in the message and purpose of existence, the aid of spirituality and an ode to a beautiful journey called life.

Set in the plains of Punjab, amidst the breathtaking mountain snowmelts and monsoon rainstorms, these beauifully told and haunting stories explore the lives and the longings and memories of the Lohar people of Kotli. For centuries the Lohars have worked as iron-, silver- and goldsmiths. We meet this place and this people a decade after the tumultuous Partition of India, when millions fled their homes to live elsewhere. Now, so much as changed in the Lohar village, and there is a story and a secret to evry person, every family. A man's wife turns out to be a stranger, and his house is not quite his own, when two strangers appear and dig out their past from its earth; a precocious nine-year-old contemplates the mystery behind an old picture; a child bride must abandon the rag dolls that accompanied her in her wedding palaquin; an itinerant fakir sings of reviving a legenday river ...

This is a book about a writer, Islamic fundamentalism, mythmaking, and international literary politics. It is the story of Taslima Nasreen, a writer who shot to international fame in 1993, at the age of thirty-four after she was accused of blasphemy by religious extremists in Bangladesh and her book "Shame" was banned. In order to escape a warrant for her arrest, she went underground and, as the official story has it, fled to the West where she became a human rights celebrity, a female version of Salman Rushdie, feted by presidents, chancellors, mayors, and famous writers and intellectuals around Europe. She is still remembered and widely admired as a modern-day feminist icon who fought the fundamentalists in her own country and whose life was in danger. This is the official story that most people are familiar with, and the one that is widely believed by Taslima supporters around the world. However, as "The Crescent and the Pen" reveals, in the style of a literary detective tale, the true story behind the international campaign to save Nasreen has never been told until now. Following on the trail of Nasreen, the author questions the reasoning behind the international "crusade" to save her, in the process debunking much of the current thinking that has shaped Islam into the new global enemy. She discovers that the story of what really happened to Nasreen is a fascinating labyrinth where memory and myth have merged, the tale having acquired a life of its own with a hundred different authors.

One of the most popular Indian novels of all ages, 'Ananda Math' was translated innumerable times into Indian and English languages. Five editions were published in Bengali and Hindi during the author's lifetime, the first in 1882. The novel has the backdrop of the 18th century famine in Bengal, infamous as "Chhiyattorer Manvantar" (famine of 76th Bengali year, 1276), to narrate the saga of armed uprising of the ascetics and their disciples against the pillaging East India Company rulers. The uprising is historically known as 'Santan Vidroha', the ascetics being the children of Goddess Jagadambe. The saga of 'Ananda Math' is thrilling and best epitomised in the patriotic mass-puller song "Bande Mataram' ('Hail thee, O My Motherland'). The song is still a mantra that stirs imagination of millions of Hindus. The ascetics robbed the tormentors of people — the British rulers and the greedy jamindars — distributed the looted wealth to poverty-stricken people but kept nothing for themselves. Their targets were mostly the Company armoury and supplies. They had a highly organised setup, spread throughout Bengal. It was also India's first battle for freedom, and not the Sipahi Vidroha of 1857.

Which countries will rise to challenge them? In his best-selling book, writer and investor Ruchir Sharma identifies which countries are most likely to leap ahead and why, drawing insights from time spent on the ground and detailed demographic, political, and economic analysis.

Jonas entdeckt eines Morgens einen Großteil seiner Haarpracht im Abfluss der Dusche anstatt auf seinem Kopf. Dabei könnte sein Leben so schön sein: Mitte zwanzig, eben einen Job in einer angesagten Münchner Agentur ergattert und bis zu jenem Morgen mit einem dichten Lockenkopf gesegnet. Dies soll gefälligst so bleiben. Eine aberwitzige Suche nach dem Gegenmittel beginnt. Jonas ergreift sofort rigide Maßnahmen, um dem Haarausfall Einhalt zu gebieten. Maßnahmen allerdings, die gelinde gesagt hysterisch sind und auch seine beste Freundin und Mitbewohnerin Anne an den Rand des Nervenzusammenbruchs treiben. Doch Jonas lässt nicht locker, denn die clevere und sexy Praktikantin auf der Arbeit kann nur mit intakter Lockenpracht erobert werden. Jonas stolpert dabei in immer absurdere Situationen und beweist eindrücklich, dass auch Männer schwerwiegende Probleme mit »Problemzonen« haben können.
