When BBC Radio 4's Material World programme announced a search for the UK's top amateur scientist, little did anyone expect that the winning experiment would comprise one of our humblest garden pests. Ruth Brooks posed this question: Do snails have a homing instinct? The nation was gripped by the unexpected thesis and by Ruth's online diaries, which catalogued her trials and tribulations as she got to grips with these slimy little gastropods. A Slow Passion is Ruth's story, with anecdotes and misadventures galore. What starts out as a ruthless vendetta against the snails that are decimating her hostas becomes a journey of discovery into the whys and wherefores of snail life. When Ruth dumps a group of the worst offending snails in a far-off wood, she decides to paint their shells with nail varnish, just to see what happens. And guess what, they come back home. This is the beginning of an obsession that sees the grandmother-turned-scientist prowling about and pouncing on the snails in her garden, sneaking off on night-time missions to repatriate bucketloads of painted snails, reading up on the sex-life of snails (which turns out to be unexpectedly romantic) and, eventually, sending off the application to a national competition for home science. With charming illustrations, A Slow Passion is a sweet, funny and surprising investigation into the hidden life of snails, which will change the way you look at the smaller (and slower) things in life.

"Only a wayfarer born under unruly stars would attempt to put into practice in our epoch of proliferating knowledge the Heraclitean dictum that men who love wisdom must be inquirers into very many things indeed.'" Thus begins this remarkable interdisciplinary study of time by a master of the subject. And while developing a theory of "time as conflict", J. T. Fraser does offer "many things indeed"--an enormous range of ideas about matter, life, death, evolution, and value. "This is an extremely valuable and unusual book--original, witty, and aware of immense ranges of contemporary thought". --David Park, Washington Post Book World "This is an important book about an important subject, the nature of time. . . . [Fraser] draws upon the spectrum of disciplines and illustrates that the theme of time can provide a common ground for discourse between specializations. The coverage is wide, and the book is tightly packed with information, but Fraser's driving enthusiasm makes it interesting and enriching". --Francis C. Haber, American Scientist

Life Passion: Words Inspire Our Desire is an inspiring collection of poetry and short stories offering an alternative view of God and religion. Author Mark Gregory Washer gives a fresh perspective on life and Gods expectations of how we should live a spiritual life. He talks about the difference between right and wrong, both on a personal level along and with a more global approach. Many of the meditations offered in Life Passion are based upon Washers personal life experiences. From the sights and sounds of the romantic city of Odessa to fond memories of his great-grandmother, he envelopes himself in the spirituality of his life stories. Washer also considers the various religious writings and doctrines that bolster his strong religious beliefs. He offers a simpler view into Gods will that makes it more accessible to everyone, and he explores the timeless question so many ask: Why am I here? From Only Words Words can heal Words can hurt Words can make you lose your shirt Words are more Words are less In this deadly game of chess Words will lose Words will win Words will cause your soul to sin Does anyone hear me when I say I cant take another day Does anyone care when I shout Now its time to let me out
