    From Gregorian Chant to Henryk Gorecki, the first living classical composer to get into the pop album charts, here is the fascinating story of over a thousand years of Western classical music and the composers who have sought to express in music the deepest of human feelings and emotions. Also available: The History of Opera.

    The story of jazz encompasses the story of American courtship and show business; the epic growth of cities, and the struggle for civil rights and simple justice that continues into the new millennium. If you haven't already, download the accompanying audio to Ken Burns' remarkable documentary!

    In this groundbreaking union of art and science, rocker-turned-neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin explores the connection between music - its performance, its composition, how we listen to it, why we enjoy it - and the human brain. Levitin draws on the latest research and on musical examples ranging from Mozart to Duke Ellington to Van Halen.

    The Nazis discovered it. The Allies won the war with it. It conquered diseases, changed laws, and single-handedly launched the era of antibiotics. This incredible discovery was sulfa, the first antibiotic medication. In The Demon Under the Microscope, Thomas Hager chronicles the dramatic history of the drug that shaped modern medicine.

    "What should we have for dinner?" To one degree or another, this simple question assails any creature faced with a wide choice of things to eat. Anthropologists call it the omnivore's dilemma. Choosing from among the countless potential foods nature offers, humans have had to learn what is safe, and what isn't. Today, as America confronts what can only be described as a national eating disorder, the omnivore's dilemma has returned with an atavistic vengeance.

    Stephen Redding says: "Great presentation of a moral dilemma"

    Story

    Después de la lectura de este libro escrito en forma amena e interesante uno necesariamente se cuestiona una cantidad de cosas acerca de nuestra comida de todos los días.
    Si bien yo soy un medico oftalmólogo, debo confesar que encontré una información sobre la forma de producir alimentos que me dejó pensativo durante un largo tiempo.
    Este libro es recomendable para toda persona que se interese acerca de lo saludable de su forma de alimentarse.

    Story
    (325)

    A visionary and optimistic thinker examines the tension between privacy and publicness that is transforming how we form communities, create identities, do business, and live our lives. The Internet, he argues, will change business, society, and life as profoundly as Gutenberg’s invention, shifting power from old institutions to us all.

    Story

    Realmente las detalladas fundamentaciones acerca de la conveniencia de tener una vida pública me impactaron e invitaron a considerarlas.

    Tan es así que volví a activar mi perfil en Facebook, teniendo en cuenta lo cuidadoso que se debe ser en difundir actividades estrictamente privadas.

    Se recomienda no obstante su lectura para quien todavía no tenga una idea clara sobre el tema.
