Lagom

Linnea Dunne
Authors:
Linnea Dunne

Step aside Hygge. Lagom is the new Scandi lifestyle trend taking the world by storm. This delightfully illustrated book gives you the lowdown on this transformative approach to life and examines how the lagom ethos has helped boost Sweden to the No.10 ranking in 2017's World Happiness Report. Lagom (pronounced 'lah-gom') has no equivalent in the English language but is loosely translated as 'not too little, not too much, just right'. It is widely believed that the word comes from the Viking term 'laget om', for when a mug of mead was passed around a circle and there was just enough for everyone to get a sip. But while the anecdote may hit the nail on the head, the true etymology of the word points to an old form of the word 'lag', which means 'law'.Far from restrictive, lagom is a liberating concept, praising the idea that anything more than 'just enough' is a waste of time. Crucially it also comes with a selflessness and core belief of responsibility and common good. By living lagom you can: Live a happier and more balanced life Reduce your environmental impact Improve your work-life balance Free your home from clutter Enjoy good food the Swedish way Grow your own and learn to forage Cherish the relationships with those you love

Philip's Night Sky Atlas

Robin Scagell, Wil Tirion
Contributors:
Robin Scagell, Wil Tirion

Fully revised and now in its third edition, Philip's Night Sky Atlas is a highly practical star atlas that can be used anywhere in the world and at any time of the year. With a sturdy, damp-proof binding, it is the ideal choice for the backyard astronomer using binoculars or a small telescope. It contains all the maps you need to learn your way around the night sky, whether you want to find remote galaxies, sketch lunar craters or make estimates of variable stars. Author Robin Scagell explains what you can see, what equipment (if any) you will need and how to make the most of your time under the stars. The star maps are by Wil Tirion, the world-renowned celestial cartographer.The eight sky maps together show the whole of the night sky. Stars down to magnitude 5.5 are marked, together with the brighter deep-sky objects. They are drawn on a white background so that you can add your own pencil notes or observations to the maps. Opposite each of the sky maps is a photo-realistic version of the same map. In addition, constellation maps show numerous deep-sky targets, with interesting objects described in detail.A Moon map, split into quadrants, is accompanied by suggestions of what to look for, with images of the most interesting features. The author also describes how to observe and record the planets, the Sun, meteors, eclipses, comets and deep-sky objects.

Philip's Essential Guide to Space

Paul Sutherland
Authors:
Paul Sutherland

A stimulating guide detailing recent developments in space exploration written by Paul Sutherland.Rockets, spacecraft and satellites - the first steps into space.The race to the Moon - and future lunar exploration.Exploring the Solar System - up-to-date information about human and robotic spaceflight.Making space home - living and working on the International Space Station.Observatories in space - looking for other planetary systems and measuring the Universe.Illustrated throughout with stunning photographs and colourful artworks.Suitable for ages 12 to adult.Philip's Essential Guide to Space takes the reader on a beautifully illustrated and informative journey - from the earliest beginnings of rockets and artificial satellites, through the first manned space missions, and on to the latest space probes venturing out into the farthest reaches of the Solar System and the observatories in space that are delving deeper into the origins of the Universe.Author Paul Sutherland describes the early attempts to build rockets in order to propel artificial satellites into Earth orbit for the first time, and examines the difficulties that were overcome in order to launch humans into orbit and on to the Moon. In time, these advances in technology led to the construction and operation of the International Space Station.Much of our knowledge of the Solar System has been derived from space probes that have visited distant planets and sent back images and data streams for analysis. The Sun and the planets are examined in turn, reflecting on the orbiters and landers that have provided a wealth of information.Looking beyond our Solar System to distant galaxies and other deep-sky objects, Paul describes the missions and space observatories that are working to expand our knowledge of black holes, supernova remnants and gamma-ray bursts, as well as the discovery of other planetary systems.Suitable for ages 12 to adult, Philip's Essential Guide to Space is illustrated in full colour throughout.

Hugh Johnson on Wine

Hugh Johnson
Authors:
Hugh Johnson

'On Wine-which brings together dozens of "articles, reviews, and introductions," from titles as various as Vogue, Decanter, The Sunday Times Wine Club newsletter Wine Times, and the journal you have in your hands, as well as snippets from Johnson's bestselling books-has many moments where the writing transcends the ostensible subject matter.'The World of Fine WineOne of the world's great authorities on wine, Hugh Johnson has been writing on the subject (among others) for almost six decades. This selection chronicles his personal take on developments that have revolutionised the industry for half a century and more.Johnson's prose describes as no one else can the endlessly fascinating characters and landscapes of the wine world. He tells of setting sail with sybarites and braving the perfect storm, he debates at length the Pleasure Principle, lip-smacks through decadent dinners, teaches and learns in Tokyo and files breathless dispatches from Beijing. He bids a poignant farewell to the loveliest vintages, decries peremptory judgement and urges the Slow Food philosophy; falls in love (again), this time with Tokaji, tells warm winter tales through a vintage port and sets out a summer picnic at the source of the Seine - all the while dryly annotating the scribbles of his younger self with contemporary marginal hindsights.This thoughtful, illuminating collection will delight not only lovers of wine, food, history and travel but also anyone who enjoys the intoxicating power of words.
