My Very First Book Of Colors



  善於使用拼貼技巧的童書大師Eric Carle,為家有嬰幼兒的父母獻上了這本特別的顏色認知書,16開大小的書頁被一分為二,上半頁是鮮明的色卡與顏色名稱,下半頁則是由不同色調的紙卡拼貼成的可愛圖案:白色的雪人、黃色的檸檬、粉紅色的花朵、彩色的蝴蝶……硬頁的設計讓小朋友可以輕鬆地翻動,在父母的陪伴下認識顏色,找找看上、下半頁哪些色卡和圖案的色調是相同的呢?家長還可以跟小朋友一起想想看,除了書上的圖片,生活中哪些東西的顏色也跟書上的色卡相同呢?當孩子選對的時候,家長別忘了給予愛的鼓勵!

Catcher in the Rye



《當代文庫》評選百大最佳小說(100 Best Novels)

《時代雜誌》評選百大不朽小說(The All-TIME 100 Greatest Novels)

紐約公共圖書館評選世紀之書(Books of the Century)

年銷量25萬冊,全球總銷量逾6千5百萬冊

  本書為作者唯一一部長篇創作,透過主角霍爾頓漫無目的在外遊走兩天的遭遇,以其特有的眼光、態度與語言,寫實呈現少年的感受、想法與心理。甫出版便在美國掀起一陣「捕手熱」(Catcher Cult),大眾反應兩極化,使此書既被列為禁書,又被選為教材,更成為無人不讀的小說作品。霍爾頓對這虛偽社會的厭惡與反抗、對成人世界的措手不及、對純真年代快樂時光的懷想……,再再觸動舉世野少年騷亂不安的心靈。

  他是矛盾的統一體,既受腐化社會的耳濡目染,又存有反抗現實的理想;他也是當代社會「失落的一代」,只是崩潰的不夠徹底……。文壇名家沙林傑,以青少年敏感特異的眼光和語言,披露社會現實與其心理,開啟當代美國文學心理現實主義之先河

  Ever since it was first published in 1951, this novel has been the coming-of-age story against which all others are judged. Read and cherished by generations, the story of Holden Caulfield is truly one of America’s literary treasures.   

作者簡介

沙林傑J. D. Salinger

  美國作家,1919年1月1日生於紐約,15歲時進入軍校就讀,也在這個時期,藉由每晚躲在棉被中、借助手電筒光線,開始他寫故事的生涯。1940年首度發表短篇小說作品,1951年出版《麥田捕手》,一時聲名大噪,但沙林傑本人不改孤傲本性,數十年來隱遁山林、謝絕一切媒體採訪,也始終拒絕好萊塢片商購買本書電影劇本版權的請求;甚至不再發表任何作品。

P.S. I Love You



A novel about holding on, letting go, and learning to love again.

Now in paperback, the endearing novel that captured readers’ hearts and introduced a fresh new voice in women’s fiction - Cecelia Ahern.

Holly couldn’t live without her husband Gerry, until the day she had to. They were the kind of young couple who could finish each other’s sentences. When Gerry succumbs to a terminal illness and dies, 30-year-old Holly is set adrift, unable to pick up the pieces. But with the help of a series of letters her husband left her before he died and a little nudging from an eccentric assortment of family and friends, she learns to laugh, overcome her fears, and discover a world she never knew existed.

The kind of enchanting novel with cross-generational appeal that comes along once in a great while, PS, I Love You is a captivating love letter to the world!

Cecelia Ahern, the 22-year-old daughter of Ireland’s prime minister, holds a degree in Journalism and Media Communications. She has completed her second novel, Rosie Dunne, and is at work on her third. She lives in Dublin, Ireland.

The History of Love



  The illuminating national bestseller: ”Vertiginously exciting…vibrantly imagined….[Krauss is] a prodigious talent.”—Janet Maslin, New York Times

  A long-lost book reappears, mysteriously connecting an old man searching for his son and a girl seeking a cure for her widowed mother’s loneliness.

  Leo Gursky is just about surviving, tapping his radiator each evening to let his upstairs neighbor know he’s still alive. But life wasn’t always like this: sixty years ago, in the Polish village where he was born, Leo fell in love and wrote a book. And though Leo doesn’t know it, that book survived, inspiring fabulous circumstances, even love. Fourteen-year-old Alma was named after a character in that very book. And although she has her hands full—keeping track of her brother, Bird (who thinks he might be the Messiah), and taking copious notes on How to Survive in the Wild—she undertakes an adventure to find her namesake and save her family. With consummate, spellbinding skill, Nicole Krauss gradually draws together their stories.

  This extraordinary book was inspired by the author’s four grandparents and by a pantheon of authors whose work is haunted by loss—Bruno Schulz, Franz Kafka, Isaac Babel, and more. It is truly a history of love: a tale brimming with laughter, irony, passion, and soaring imaginative power.

Vogue

Confirms the depth and breadth of her talent.

Newsday

Brilliant. An achievement of extraordinary depth and beauty.

LA Weekly

The novel’s achievement is precisely, not negligibly, this: to have made a new fiction—alternately delightful and hilarious and deeply affecting.

San Francisco Chronicle

Moving and virtuosic.

Cleveland Plain Dealer

Luminous prose….Krauss is a masterful storyteller…a writer of astonishing breadth.

Entertainment Weekly

Ingenious.

New York

A significant novel, genuinely one of the year’s best.

Miami Herald, Connie Ogle

Wonderful and haunting....Deftly layered …with deceptively nimble humor and unsentimental tenderness.

Boris Kachka, New York Magazine

Emotionally wrenching yet intellectually rigorous, idea-driven but with indelible characters and true suspense.

Seattle Times, Mary Brennan

A complex, funny, sad, elegantly constructed meditation on the power of love, language and imagination.


作者簡介

  Nicole Krauss is the author of the novel Man Walks into a Room. Her work has appeared most recently in The New Yorker. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

寶寶的第一份見面禮CD盒組



寶寶的第一份見面禮套組(含Sound Beginnings, Baby’s First Word in French/in Spanish/in Italian共四件)

此套組含:

★Sound Beginnings 雙CD*1

★Baby’s First Word in French*1

★Baby’s First Word in Spanish*1

★Baby’s First Word in Italian*1

  研究指出,每個嬰兒都是小小語言學家,在六個月前的嬰兒能分辨出極細微的音素差異,但這種語言能力會隨著年紀漸長而慢慢消失。嬰兒在他最初六個月大正在發展音調記憶時,如經常讓他聽不同國家的語言,對將來學習多國語言有很大的助益。Sound Beginnings是針對這樣的研究報告,特別設計用來幫助家長給予寶寶最適當的刺激。內容每15分鐘為一段落,演說者以母親般溫柔的音調和寶寶講話,為你的寶貝介紹每一種語言的字母、數字、童謠韻文及每一種文化特有的民俗旋律和催眠曲。父母不必強迫寶寶要專心聆聽,可以在睡前、車上、或寶寶遊戲時,當成背景音樂放給寶寶聽即可。

  Baby’s First Word系列CD,有法文、義大利文、與西班牙文,特別為0-2歲寶寶所設計。一般寶寶CD內容僅有歌曲或輕音樂,而此系列CD則有系統的收錄該國語言最具代表性的童謠、韻文、及特殊音節所組成的簡單故事。有關該語言的字母、數字、顏色、幼兒生活習慣、家庭等主題,都收錄其中,或以歌謠唱出,或以韻文及故事呈現。由於錄音效果很好,不僅0-2歲幼兒聽了會鼓動手足,3-5歲小朋友會跟著念唱,大人們聽來也頗具休閒娛樂效果,而對於該語言的興趣、好感、甚至音調的記憶也無形中進入腦中! 近年來電視廣告喜歡用外文童謠當廣告主題歌,這些廣告歌曲,在此CD系列都找的到喔!盒中除附原文與英文歌詞外,另有一本70多頁的小書介紹幼兒學習語言的理論與研究成果,非常值得父母參考。

Super Crunchers: Why Thinking-by-Numbers Is the New Way to Be Smart



Why would a casino try and stop you from losing? How can a mathematical formula find your future spouse? Would you know if a statistical analysis blackballed you from a job you wanted?

  Today, number crunching affects your life in ways you might never imagine. In this lively and groundbreaking new book, economist Ian Ayres shows how today’s best and brightest organizations are analyzing massive databases at lightening speed to provide greater insights into human behavior. They are the Super Crunchers. From internet sites like Google and Amazon that know your tastes better than you do, to a physician’s diagnosis and your child’s education, to boardrooms and government agencies, this new breed of decision makers are calling the shots. And they are delivering staggeringly accurate results. How can a football coach evaluate a player without ever seeing him play? Want to know whether the price of an airline ticket will go up or down before you buy? How can a formula outpredict wine experts in determining the best vintages? Super crunchers have the answers. In this brave new world of equation versus expertise, Ayres shows us the benefits and risks, who loses and who wins, and how super crunching can be used to help, not manipulate us.

  Gone are the days of solely relying on intuition to make decisions. No businessperson, consumer, or student who wants to stay ahead of the curve should make another keystroke without reading Super Crunchers.

Confessions of a Shopaholic



  Rebecca Bloomwood just hit rock bottom. But she’s never looked better....

  Becky Bloomwood has a fabulous flat in London’s trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a closet brimming with the season’s must-haves. The only trouble is that she can’t actually afford it-not any of it.

  Her job writing at Successful Savings not only bores her to tears, it doesn’t pay much at all. And lately Becky’s been chased by dismal letters from Visa and the Endwich Bank-letters with large red sums she can’t bear to read-and they’re getting ever harder to ignore.

  She tries cutting back; she even tries making more money. But none of her efforts succeeds. Becky’s only consolation is to buy herself something ... just a little something...

  Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will transform her life--and the lives of those around her--forever.

  Sophie Kinsella has brilliantly tapped into our collective consumer conscience to deliver a novel of our times-and a heroine who grows stronger every time she weakens. Becky Bloomwood’s hilarious schemes to pay back her debts are as endearing as they are desperate. Her ”confessions” are the perfect pick-me-up when life is hanging in the (bank) balance.


購物狂的異想世界

  蘇菲.金索拉的作品全球暢銷超過2,000,000冊,

  購物狂系列已被譯為22種語言,即將改編為電影劇本

  我是《成功理財》雜誌社的記者,工作就是告訴讀者如何理財;

但是在我的閒暇時間,卻無法克制自己瘋狂購物的欲望。

  多年來,我處在一個購物的迴圈中,有點像是農家的輪種體系。不同的是,農家是小麥-玉米-大麥-休耕,而我的迴圈則是衣服-化妝品-鞋子-衣服(我通常 不擔心休耕的問題)。說真的,購物其實和耕種很相似,你不能老是買同樣的東西,總得有些變化,不然生活會變得很無聊,不是嗎?

  問題是, 我的薪水根本負擔不起這些昂貴的消費,銀行的催款信件更是讓我煩惱不已……我嘆口氣,看著窗外那些熙來攘往,提著購物袋的女孩們。我是如此渴望加入她們的 行列,我不由自主地把身體傾斜過去,就如同一株渴望陽光的植物。我渴望商店中那明亮的燈光、那暖洋洋的氣氛,哪怕是收銀機發出的聲音也是我所渴望聽到的。

  也許我應該買一些小首飾,或者靴子。沒錯,我需要新的靴子,還要順便看看美麗的衣服。天哪!一天過後,我真該享受一下,而且由於工作上的需要,我必須添購幾雙襪子和一把指甲刀,或者一本在地鐵上消磨時間的書。

  當我在星巴克排隊等待付款時,果然已經開心多了!

Naked in Death



  ”In a world of danger and deception, she walks the line--between seductive passion and scandalous murder... Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over ten years on the force, she’s seen it all--and knows her survival depends on her instincts. And she’s going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire--and a suspect in Eve’s murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it’s up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about--except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.”

Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives



  從二十世紀八○年代,到二十一世紀的身心靈時代,《深夜加油站遇見蘇格拉底》這本超好看的半自傳體故事,一直緊緊抓住了全球數以百萬計的年輕人心靈。它的使命,是陪伴不同世代的青春生命,勇敢走上屬於自己的英雄成長旅程!

  1966年之前,我一直被幸運之神眷顧,在安穩的環境中長大,在世界彈簧床錦標賽中拿到冠軍,周遊歐洲各國。可是這段生命歷程為我帶來受之無愧的讚賞,卻沒有為我的內心帶來永恆的寧靜。一天,凌晨三點二十分,在一個通宵營業的加油站裡,我首次與蘇格拉底相遇。

  這一次的偶遇以及接下來的歷險,改變了我的一生。

  蘇格拉底把我的生活方式,和他的生活方式徹底對照了一番。他不斷取笑我過著既嚴肅、憂心忡忡又問題重重的生活:「你必須為你現在的生活負責,而不是為你所受到的困境去責怪別人或環境。等你真正張開眼睛時,你會看到你的健康、幸福和生活的各種困境,大部分都是你自己一手造成的──不管是有意或無意間。」

  直到我終能看清他那睿智、慈悲且幽默的教導:「盡量使用你擁有的任何知識,可是要看出它們的限制。光有知識還不夠,知識沒有心。再多的知識也不能滋養或支撐你的心靈,它永遠也無法帶給你終極的幸福或平靜。生命所需要的不僅是知識而己,還得有熱烈的感情和源源不絕的能量。生命必須採取正確的行動,才能讓知識活過來。」

  蘇格拉底教我學習如何生活──遵守某些特定的戒律清規,掌握某種看待世界的方式,清醒地過著單純、快樂、不複雜的生活--「快樂的祕密並不在於尋求更多想要的,而是在於培養少欲的能力。」

  我體認到,我在那些年中一直沈睡著,只不過夢見自己是醒的──直到遇見待我亦師亦友的蘇格拉底。從此,我的世界再也不一樣了。



作者簡介

丹.米爾曼(Dan Millman)

  前世界級彈簧床錦標選手、史丹福大學體操教練、歐柏林學院(Oberlin College)教授、武術輔導員。他的演講、研討會深深影響了來自不同社會階層的各個年齡層讀者,包括身心健康、心理學、教育、政治、體育、娛樂和藝術等領域。他的著作《深夜加油站遇見蘇格拉底》(Way of the peaceful warrior)、《The Journeys of Socrates》、《The Life You Were Born to Live》等書,發行量超過上百萬冊,翻譯多達二十九種語言。丹目前和妻子住在北加州,育有三個女兒和兩個孫子。

  During his junior year at the University of California, while training to become a world-champion gymnast, Dan Millman stumbled on a 94-year-old mentor nicknamed Socrates, a powerful, unpredictable, and elusive character. He taught a way to maximize performance using a unique blend of Eastern philosophy and Western fitness to cultivate the true essence of a champion - the ”way of the peaceful warrior.” Millman’s first-person account of his odyssey into realms of light, darkness, mind, body, and spirit has since become an international bestseller about the universal quest for happiness.

The World Without Us



  In The World Without Us, Alan Weisman offers an utterly original approach to questions of humanity’s impact on the planet: he asks us to envision our Earth, without us.

  In this far-reaching narrative, Weisman explains how our massive infrastructure would collapse and finally vanish without human presence; which everyday items may become immortalized as fossils; how copper pipes and wiring would be crushed into mere seams of reddish rock; why some of our earliest buildings might be the last architecture left; and how plastic, bronze sculpture, radio waves, and some man-made molecules may be our most lasting gifts to the universe.

  The World Without Us reveals how, just days after humans disappear, floods in New York’s subways would start eroding the city’s foundations, and how, as the world’s cities crumble, asphalt jungles would give way to real ones. It describes the distinct ways that organic and chemically treated farms would revert to wild, how billions more birds would flourish, and how cockroaches in unheated cities would perish without us. Drawing on the expertise of engineers, atmospheric scientists, art conservators, zoologists, oil refiners, marine biologists, astrophysicists, religious leaders from rabbis to the Dali Lama, and paleontologists--who describe a prehuman world inhabited by megafauna like giant sloths that stood taller than mammoths--Weisman illustrates what the planet might be like today, if not for us.

  From places already devoid of humans (a last fragment of primeval European forest; the Korean DMZ; Chernobyl), Weisman reveals Earth’s tremendous capacity for self-healing. As he shows which human devastations are indelible, and which examples of our highest art and culture would endure longest, Weisman’s narrative ultimately drives toward a radical but persuasive solution that needn’t depend on our demise. It is narrative nonfiction at its finest, and in posing an irresistible concept with both gravity and a highly readable touch, it looks deeply at our effects on the planet in a way that no other book has.

Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things



  在大自然裡,沒有需要丟棄的東西——當一棵櫻桃樹開滿花朵、而這些花朵又紛紛落地時,沒有人會覺得資源被浪費了——因為所有枯枝、落葉、落花,都將回到土壤,再度成為養分,培育出新的花朵和果實。

  如果人類社會是由櫻桃樹所繁衍的,世界將會是怎樣的情景?那樣一來,我們所思考的,將不再是如何減少對環境的污染、如何減少資源的浪費、如何減少廢棄物的排放……;而是回到源頭去想,如何從一開始,就像棵櫻桃樹一樣,縱然繁花落盡,卻依然生生不息。

  只要所有事物的設計,都依循「從搖籃到搖籃」概念,而不是一生產出來,就走向墳墓!

  本書章節:

  緒論:這本書不是一棵樹 The Book Is Not a Tree

  Chapter 1 問題出在設計 A Question of Design

  第一次工業革命,所設計出來的體系是每年將百萬頓的有毒物質排放到大自然中、消耗並浪費無數的資源、產生無數的廢棄物、千篇一律的風格則破壞了世界各地文化的多樣性、也破壞了生物多樣性。
然而這不是一個刻意導致的結果,而是一個悲劇性的選擇,一開始的設計,就是錯的。

  Chapter 2 減少破壞,並不會變好 Why Being “Less Bad” Is No Good?

  為了彌補這樣的錯誤,過去環保人士喊出了3R的口號:Reduce減少、Reuse再利用、Recycle回收。但有毒物質依舊排放、資源依舊消耗。所謂的生態效率,只是在延緩死刑,將產品的生命週期,拉長兩倍、三倍,但終究是條從搖籃到墳墓的路途。

  Chapter 3 生態有效性 Eco-Effectiveness

  生態效率是不夠的,比較不壞、並不會變好。我們需要的是生態有效性,如果我們能蓋一幢可以自然呼吸、保持涼爽、吸收太陽能、並讓動植物生長的房子呢?這樣人們還會嫌棄都市裡過多的房子破壞生態嗎?

  我們可以從一開始設計時,就去思考能重覆使用一百次的紙張,而不是為了回收紙槳而造成更大的污染。

  Chapter 4 廢物即食物 Waste Equals Food

  自然界沒有廢棄物的概念,一棵花實累累的櫻桃樹,當那些花朵掉落在地上時,並不是浪費,而是回到土壤中、化為養分。如果我們用同樣的邏輯來設計產品,將所有的設計清楚的區分為生物養分和工業養分組成:生物原料可以輕易的進入大自然中分解,養育其他的動植物;而工業養分則在工業圈內不斷循環利用。我們不再有浪費,東西回收時,也不再是材料愈來愈糟的降級回收,而是愈來愈好的昇級回收。

  Chapter 5 尊重多樣化 Respect Diversity
在生產的過程中,我們尊重生物多樣性,同時,也注重材料的多樣性、文化的多樣性。永續的發展是因地置宜的,針對在地的材料、文化、生態去思考,而不是千篇一律的套用,才能達到真正的永續。

  Chapter 6 將生態有效性付諸實踐 Putting Eco-Effectiveness into Practice
沒有人是完美的,生態效率是「減少污染」,這是一個惶恐的過程,因為我們作得永遠不夠、有毒排放可以更少、資源可以更精簡。但生態有效性是正面的,是一個正向的過程,不用一開始就作到完美,我們可以分成幾個步驟,遂一實踐。

  本書中文版由「野人」出版。


  Challenges the concept that industry must inevitably damage the natural environment as it argues that products should be designed so that after their useful life they provide nourishment for something else--as biological nutrients that safely reenter the environment or as technical nutrients that circulate within closed-loop industrial circles. 15,000 first printing.
