Is natural painless childbirth a myth or reality? The intent of the book is neither to give universal guidelines nor to compete with the work and methods of Midwives, doulas or other related professions. You won't even find recommendations concerning diet or physical exercise here. Those are pieces of information that you can read in books written by many outstanding authors. The purpose of the book is to pass on personal experience, to show a slightly different point of view and to introduce pregnancy and birth as the woman's work on her own personal development. We are all holding the birth pain as well as the whole experience of birth in our own hands. Based on personal experience and story. "The book should be welcomed as a golden opportunity to reinforce the power modern physiology has to challenge thousands of years of cultural conditioning. It can help us to be aware of a sudden paradigm shift regarding our understanding of the birth process and particularly our interpretation of labour pain." From the foreword by Michel Odent, M.D. (author of 13 books including Birth Reborn, Chidbirth and the Future of Homo Sapiens)

Author: Brian Clegg
Science is rightly a fundamental part of primary school education, but that doesn’t make it easy to teach - especially for teachers without a science background. This straight talking book from an experienced science writer and communicator looks at how to make the most of it and give primary school children a good grounding in the topic. Getting Science sets out to engage the sense of wonder. The science in this book is not for the children, but for the adults who have to explain it. Starting with a whirlwind tour of the great milestones of modern science, Getting Science goes on to take each of the main curriculum topics and give it a new twist. It provides the information needed to understand the key topics better and be able to put them across with enthusiasm and energy. This book will help teachers to get children excited by science, to understand science rather than just answer questions. Getting Science makes science fun, approachable and comprehensible to those who just don’t get it.

Nearly forty of the world's most esteemed scientists discuss the big questions that drive their illustrious careers. Co-editor Eduardo Punset—one of Spain's most loved personages for his popularization of the sciences—interviews an impressive collection of characters drawing out the seldom seen personalities of the world's most important men and woman of science. In Mind, Life and Universe they describe in their own words the most important and fascinating aspects of their research. Frank and often irreverent, these interviews will keep even the most casual reader of science books rapt for hours. Can brain science explain feelings of happiness and despair? Is it true that chimpanzees are just like us when it comes to sexual innuendo? Is there any hard evidence that life exists anywhere other than on the Earth? Through Punset's skillful questioning, readers will meet one scientist who is passionate about the genetic control of everything and another who spends her every waking hour making sure African ecosystems stay intact. The men and women assembled here by Lynn Margulis and Eduardo Punset will provide a source of endless interest. In captivating conversations with such science luminaries as Jane Goodall, James E. Lovelock, Oliver Sachs, and E. O. Wilson, Punset reveals a hidden world of intellectual interests, verve, and humor. Science enthusiasts and general readers alike will devour Mind, Life and Universe, breathless and enchanted by its truths.
