Country houses were reliant on an intricate hierarchy of servants, each of whom provided an essential skill. Up and Down Stairs brings to life this hierarchy and shows how large numbers of people lived together under strict segregation and how sometimes this segregation was broken, as with the famous marriage of a squire to his dairymaid at Uppark. Jeremy Musson captures the voices of the servants who ran these vast houses, and made them work. From unpublished memoirs to letters, wages, newspaper articles, he pieces together their daily lives from the Middle Ages through to the twentieth century. The story of domestic servants is inseparable from the story of the country house as an icon of power, civilisation and luxury. This is particularly true with the great estates such as Chatsworth, Hatfield, Burghley and Wilton. Jeremy Musson looks at how these grand houses were, for centuries, admired and imitated around the world.

This new edition of a best-selling guide incorporates significant advances in the early and later rehabilitation of neurologically impaired patients. Based on the Bobath concept, Davies' approach to rehabilitation stresses the need to equip the patient for a full life, rather than setting arbitrary goals for functioning in a sheltered environment. Activities are described for correcting abnormal movement patterns and facial difficulties. Ways to regain walking, balance and other normal movement sequences are explained and demonstrated with 750 photographs of patients being treated.

The New York Times best-selling sequel to "Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!" One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. "What Do You Care What Other People Think?" is Feynman’s last literary legacy, prepared with his friend and fellow drummer, Ralph Leighton. Among its many tales—some funny, others intensely moving—we meet Feynman’s first wife, Arlene, who taught him of love’s irreducible mystery as she lay dying in a hospital bed while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. We are also given a fascinating narrative of the investigation of the space shuttle Challenger’s explosion in 1986, and we relive the moment when Feynman revealed the disaster’s cause by an elegant experiment: dropping a ring of rubber into a glass of cold water and pulling it out, misshapen.

Art is not created by the satisfied. The satisfied look out on the morning and accept the world as it is thus negating the desire for judgement. Like a sniper at a turd parade Daniel Joshua Nagelberg has the ills of his world in the crosshairs. Part scrutiny, part reticence, part fable, part rant, "Man Falling Backwards Down Stairs" is an outstanding exposition of a dissatisfied urban life. Daniel Joshua Nagelberg is at an imaginary bar with Bukowski on one side and Algren on the other quietly observing the rest of the villians have their way with each other. In the present climate of suspicion and fear, "Man Falling Backwards Down Stairs" is a welcome window of honest dynamic emotions. Much like Rumi's treaties of lust, debauchery and understanding through intoxication Daniel Joshua Nagelberg's visions of a wicked world gone wild are engaging, startling and often terrifying in their familarity.

Hi, I'm so glad you're here!Grab a cuppa and a comfy chair and let me tell you about Marmalada Mouse's everyday adventure. She began life as a downstairs person, living with the Burjanavetti family on the main floor of their house. But, after she was no longer new and the children had outgrown her, she was packed in a box and taken to the attic where she joined other throw-aways. As it turned out, they all managed to make a life for themselves up there in the rafters, but Marmalada Mouse just couldn't get downstairs out of her mind. She missed living among bouquets and paintings and decorations and furniture arrangements. So she set a goal to make her own "downstairs" right there in the attic. And in her attempts, she discovered some very important truths: 1) A goal without a plan can get you into a jam.2) Then it takes a plan just to get out of the jam.3) But, even when you do the right things, things don't always turn out right.4) Nevertheless, doing right becomes its own reward and it opens the door to life's good surprises.
