    Book summary:

    Human babies, even one week old, are recognizably human - just as newborn foals are recognizably horses, young kittens are cats in miniature, and puppies look like dogs. But most animals, including worms, bugs, beetles, spiders, and snails, produce young that are different from themselves. The young live apart from their parents, taking care of themselves from the moment they are born. Dragonflies spend months as beeetlelike juveniles in ponds. Crabs and flounder of the seabed produce transparent, free-swimming young that float up to surface waters for weeks, before changing shape and returning to the sea floor. Usually the young feed in different ways, taking simpler foods and avoiding the competition and predation that fill their parents' lives. It is not surprising that they need different forms - sometimes several, some very strange - that change as they grow to maturity. This book features 21 different kinds of animals, with 21 different kinds of strange beginnings. [From the Introduction]

    Book summary:

    La Ciencia de ser una Pareja Feliz

    ¿Qué cosas hacen que una pareja sea feliz? Los científicos y académicos han pasado años investigando la naturaleza de las relaciones, los noviazgos, y el matrimonio, pero sus hallazgos tienden a quedar escondidas en diversas publicaciones académicas, sin jamás llegar al alcance de la gente común. Por eso, el aclamado autor de Los 100 Secretos de la Gente Feliz ha recolectado la información más significativa y reciente de los miles de estudios que se han hecho acerca de las relaciones, y la presenta de una manera clara y fácil de comprender.

    Los consejos aquí contenidos no están basados en la experiencia o las opiniones de una persona en particular. Están basados en las investigaciones de reconocidos científicos que estudias las vidas y los amores de los estadounidenses. Cada uno de los 100 secretos va ilustrado por una historieta que lo justifica.

    • El amor es difícil de calcular. Los investigadores han comprobado de la edad, el presupuesto, la educación y la religión de una persona no tienen nada que ver con el nivel de satisfacción de una persona en una relación.

    • El siempre querer ganar puede llevar a una gran pérdida. La gente que tiene un sentimiento de competitividad con su pareja, tienen 37 por ciento menos de posibilidades de sentir que están en una relación que los satisface.

    • Deje el pasado en el pasado. Más de 40 por ciento de la gente reporta que los celos de una relación previa es una fuente de desacuerdo en la relación actual.

    Book summary:

    David Niven is remembered as one of Britain's best-loved actors. The archetypal English gentleman, he starred in over ninety films. He is equally remembered as the author of this classic autobiography. In his first volume, he remembers his childhood and school days, his time at Sandhurst and his early army service. He recalls America during the prohibition era and days in Hollywood before the Second World War. Of the war itself, he tells of family life back in Britain and his time on the front line in France and Germany. THE MOON'S A BALLOON is a wonderful record of a truly remarkable and warm-hearted man, told in his inimitable style.

    Book summary:

    This examination of the causes, severity, and implications of racially stereotyped media coverage of Congress incorporates original analysis of congressional media coverage and interviews with congressional press staff. The news media often portray African-American members as being primarily interested in race, overly concerned with local matters, and wielding little legislative influence. By contrast, the images African-American members attempt to project of themselves are more complex and comprehensive than the images the media communicate. The authors offer a psychological explanation for this phenomenon, the Distribution Effect, in which those who are numerically rare in an occupation tend to be lumped together rather than treated as individuals. Their findings suggest that it is the media, rather than members of Congress, who are responsible for the racialized images that appear regularly in the press. This results in an advantage for white incumbents trying to attract votes but presents an obstacle to be overcome for African-American politicians.

    This study will appeal to political science, media studies, and racial studies scholars. It incorporates content analysis of the newest forum of communication, congressional Internet web sites, to disclose how white and African-American representatives in fact have similar media priorities.

    Book summary:

    Nine in ten Americans believe the media are biased. Trust in journalists ranks beneath that in lawyers, and even the media themselves regularly portray their own industry as slanted toward Democrats and liberals. These perceptions, however, do not coincide with reality, as David Niven reveals in his bold new take on an often-debated subject. Tilt? The Search for Media Bias presents the first comprehensive review of the charges, the evidence, and the effects, beginning with a simple but altogether overlooked premise: to measure media bias or fairness, one has to have a fair baseline with which to compare coverage. Using situations in which presidents, governors, mayors, and members of Congress from different political parties have produced the same results in office, Tilt? compares media coverage of Democrats and Republicans in situations in which they clearly deserved equal treatment.

    The lack of evidence for partisan media bias is only part of the story. The media cover allegations of bias as if their industry has already been tried and convicted, while the American people readily accepted the premise that their main sources of information are selfishly slanted toward reporters' personal political agendas. Niven's findings, unmistakable and consistent, reveal that when the output of politicians is the same, media coverage followsa conclusion that is as provocative as it is timely and necessary.
