Une France soumise : Les voix du refus

Enseignants, infirmières, assistantes sociales, maires, formateurs, policiers témoignent de l'impossibilité d'exercer leur métier. Confrontés à une violence quotidienne, abandonnés par leur hiérarchie, oubliés des po...

The code examples are precise and are all stuff you would use in a real world situation. I wish ...

Goodnight Moon

There's not much that hasn't been said about this timeless book. All I can say is I had never heard of it until my wife got pregnant and I began looking into books for babies/toddlers. This was at the top of my list after researching, and I'm so happy to have purchased it. The art, wording, alternating black and white with color pages, and storyline are wonderful. It engages my son, he loves looking at the bunnies, and it truly is a ...

Appealing on 2 levels: 1) Fun to peek behind the scenes of classic TV, and 2) chock full of tips on being a better wr...

In Meaning and Mortality, Adam Buben offers a remarkably useful new framework for understanding the ways in which philosophy has discussed death by focusing first on two traditional strains in the discussion...
