      Physics

      by Rose Johnson

      Eureka! We have it and so can you--a discovery-packed book that makes the world of physics understandable, engaging, and fun! And that's a very good thing, because physics is all around us, responsible for everything from why balls bounce to why the stars in the sky shine--so we might as well understand and enjoy it. Chock-full of photos and diagrams, this book and its useful images further explain and expand upon the clear and informative text. (Oh, and as for who reportedly shouted "Eureka!" while sitting in his wooden bathtub, see page 7 of this engaging volume.) Our understanding of the world has been built up by observation, deduction and experimentation carried out over thousands of years. This series looks at the discoveries that have changed the way people think about science. It shows how scientists build on the work of earlier thinkers and how a breakthrough can spark a chain of scientific discovery. The books will inspire and inform budding scientists.

      The Dark Side, Real Life Accounts of an NHS Paramedic

      The Good, the Bad and the Downright Ugly

      by Andy Thompson

      Andy Thompson’s true-to-life, graphic and gripping account of his work as an NHS paramedic in Britain’s A&E emergency Ambulance Service will shock you, sadden you, entertain you, and perhaps inspire you. You’ll smile at some of Andy’s real patient encounters, while others will cause you to wipe a tear. Using official NHS documentation recorded at the time to give precise details of each incident, Andy has held firm to the real-life accounts, even in keeping the dialogue as close as his memory allows to what was really said at the time. It’s as if you’re there next to him, struggling with the effects of adrenaline and fighting to save life. This is a rare work of medical non-fiction delivered in a way that is factual, informative, but at the same time naturally entertaining and moving, written with candour and humour. And if you have ever thought what it takes to become a paramedic - or any other of the specialist vocations - and that you could never achieve it yourself, Andy’s inspiring story of how he went from postman to frontline healthcare professional, fulfilling his dream, will make you think again that anything is possible if you have the desire. Andy says there are no heroics in the book and that he simply did his job, but we are sure The Dark Side will leave you convinced there are true heroes on our streets right here, right now. Saving lives every day, every night and often against all the odds. It might even change your whole perspective on life.
