A Grain of Truth debunks the myth that growing public distrust of genetically modified organisms can be attributed to scientific illiteracy or sensationalistic news stories. Media coverage of these issues has been dominated by the spokespersons of industry_yet evidence of consumer uncertainty has been available all along. The roots of the controversy are visible in press coverage and public opinion polls over the past decade, covering everything from the manufacture of growth hormones used in dairy cows through the cloning of Dolly the sheep to the appearance of the so-called 'terminator gene.' Arguing neither for nor against genetic engineering and other forms of biotechnology, this book charges both media and industry with ignoring the concerns of the general public and encourages greater public debate over biotech and other such complex issues.

Emma's anxious and manipulative plea, 'Someone listen to me', opens- and closes- this deliciously uncomfortable novel in which Nina Bawden explores myriad emotional disguises with her characteristic acuity. When Emma's father-in-law falls down the stairs to his death, she is convinced she pushed him in an act of wish-fulfilment. To her husband Henry and her close friend Holly, this is unthinkable. Guilt is simply Emma's obsession in a humdrum domestic existence enlivened by romantic fantasy. For Holly, who successfully fields a string of love affairs, sexual pleasures are more easily attainable, whereas Henry, a Divorce lawyer, prides himself on being a realist. Each tells their story in turn, illuminating and distorting their separate versions of the truth. As they do so, an intricate jigsaw of the private deceits with which they shore up everyday life emerges.

In 1996 Samantha Hall, a young mother of two, was brutally murdered and her body dumped in parkland near Noosa in the heart of Queensland's Sunshine Coast. Despite suspicions, evidence was thin until the police called in a forensic palynologist - a pollen specialist. Forensic palynology is the use of pollen and spores to help solve crimes. It is another investigative tool, like fingerprint analysis and DNA profiling which is increasingly used by police to solve crimes. Interwoven with the unfolding story of how Samantha's killer was brought to justice, A Grain of Truth opens the door on a new forensic tool that is being used to solve crimes and other mysteries.

Scots journalist Jack Webster broadened his audience dramatically in the 1980s when he became the award-winning creator of highly personal documentary films for television. These films were based on his two acclaimed volumes of autobiography - A Grain of Truth and Another Grain of Truth - which looked back on an eventful life stretching from his Aberdeenshire upbringing, including a moving portrayal of the last day on his father's farm at Maud, to a distinguished career in journalism. A wonderfully evocative and entertaining account of life in the North-east of Scotland and beyond, these two Grains of Truth have now been brought together in one captivating volume. Whether describing his meetings with Charlie Chaplin, Muhammad Ali or the colourful local characters of his native Maud, Jack Webster writes with a warmth and humour that will be familiar to all those with whom he shared his thoughts, memories and experiences over many years in the pages of the Scottish Daily Express and The Herald.

Ein geheimnisvolles Buch, ein unerkannter Magier, ein abenteuerlicher Wettlauf gegen die Zeit San Francisco 2007. Am helllichten Tag, in Nick Flemings Buchhandlung, trauen Sophie und Josh kaum ihren Augen: Ein Unbekannter attackiert den Buchladenbesitzer Fleming mit purer Magie – und entkommt mit einem alten Buch. Was die Zwillinge nun erfahren, ist unfassbar: Nick Fleming ist kein Geringerer als der berühmte Alchemyst Nicholas Flamel, geboren vor über 670 Jahren. In einem alten Zauberbuch, dem legendären Codex, entdeckte er das Geheimnis ewigen Lebens. Und genau dieses Buch hat der Fremde gestohlen. Die Mächte des Bösen versuchen schon seit Jahrhunderten, den Codex in ihre Gewalt zu bringen – denn mit ihm allein könnten sie die Herrschaft über die Welt zurückgewinnen. Nicholas Flamel, Josh und Sophie haben genau einen Monat Zeit, um das Zauberbuch zurückzuholen. Ein atemberaubender Wettlauf gegen die Zeit beginnt! • Der fulminante Auftakt der packenden Fantasy-Saga • Rasant wie ein Kinofilm und unglaublich spannend • Nicholas Flamel: bekannt aus „Harry Potter“ und „Sakrileg“ Leserstimmen vom cbj-Leseclub: Ich habe soeben den Roman "Der Alchemyst" ausgelesen und muss ehrlich sagen, dass ich ziemlich begeistert bin. Es sind im Wesentlichen zwei Aspekte, die das Buch so besonders und so faszinierend machen: zum Einen kreiert die Auswahl an unterschiedlichen Perspektiven ein nahezu einzigartiges Spannungsmoment. Michael Scott schafft es auf beeindruckende Weise, einzelne Szenen wiederholt so aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln zu erzählen, dass der Leser einen ganz anderen Ein- und Überblick auf das Geschehen bekommt. (...)Der zweite Aspekt, der Michael Scotts Roman für mich so lesenswert gemacht hat, ist die Tatsache, dass er in dieser einen Geschichte ein Vielzahl von Mythen, Sagen, Legenden und historische Fakten so miteinander verknüpft, dass tatsächlich ein übergeordnetes Muster entsteht und alles einen Sinn macht.Isabel (17) Ich glaube dieses Buch würde meine Altersgenossen interessieren, denn diese Kinder sind genau wie wir am Anfang: technikverwöhnt und ein bisschen überheblich. Als es dann ans Zaubern geht, ist es gänzlich um die Jugendlichen geschehen. Denn wer hat sich noch nicht gewünscht aus Metall Gold zu machen oder mit Energiekugeln durch die Luft zu werfen. Mich selbst hat das Buch gleich von Anfang an in den Bann gezogen.Das Buch beginnt mit einem Knall, beruhigt sich wieder und endet mit einer Explosion. Es ist so aufgebaut das dem Leser nie langweilig wird. Viele Überraschungen und tolle Kämpfe sind die ganze Zeit vorhanden. Die Idee ist also optimal umgesetzt.Auch durch die sprachliche Gestaltung hat man das Gefühl live dabei zu seinCarolin (14)
