Thackeray
4 W.M. Thackeray's Vanity Fair, Abridged - Emma Laybourn
Auteur : Emma Laybourn
Genre : Classiques
Thackeray's Vanity Fair opens as two girls are leaving school together: the gentle, innocent Amelia and the sharp-witted, impoverished Becky. Their fortunes are intertwined over the next twenty years, through the Battle of Waterloo and after, in a novel full of lively and perceptively drawn characters.
Though regarded as one of the great works of English literature, Vanity Fair is also extremely long and discursive. This abridgement shortens the book to around 60% of the original length, making it more accessible to today's readers.

Auteur : Adam Rutherford & Hannah Fry
Genre : Affaires internationales
In the Rutherford and Fry’s comprehensive guidebook, they tell the complete story of the universe and absolutely everything in it – skipping over some of the boring parts. It’s a celebration of the weirdness of the cosmos, the strangeness of humans and the very fact that amid all the mess, we can somehow make sense of life.

What follows is a collection of our favourite stories of how our senses deceive us, of how reality is not quite what it seems, and how science is the one way that we can understand this otherwise bewildering world. Our brains have evolved to tell us all sorts of things that aren’t true: the world is flat, the stars are fixed in the heavenly firmament, a day is 24 hours, eating sugary sweets makes kids go nuts at parties. This book is crammed full of tales of how stuff really works. With the power of science, we have bypassed our monkey-brains

36 Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds (Abridged Edition) - Charles Mackay
Auteur : Charles Mackay
Genre : Finances personnelles
First published in 1841, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds is often cited as the best book ever written about market psychology. This Harriman House edition includes Charles Mackay's account of the three infamous financial manias - John Law's Mississipi Scheme, the South Sea Bubble, and Tulipomania.

Between the three of them, these historic episodes confirm that greed and fear have always been the driving forces of financial markets, and, furthermore, that being sensible and clever is no defence against the mesmeric allure of a popular craze with the wind behind it.

In writing the history of the great financial manias, Charles Mackay proved himself a master chronicler of social as well as financial history. Blessed with a cast of characters that covered all the vices, gifted a passage of events which was inevitably heading for disaster, and w

39 Karna's Alter Ego (Abridged) - Surendra Nath
Auteur : Surendra Nath
Genre : Policier et suspense
The story of Karna’s Alter Ego is based on a legend from the Indian epic Mahabharata. Does one need to be acquainted with the epic to follow this novel?

NO. All one needs to know about The Mahabharata is there was a character named Karna, who was a much-talented hero, but luck was against him all the time, from his birth until his death. Indeed, gods plotted against him so that Arjuna (another heroic character) could kill him in the final battle. This abridged version is especially meant for those who may not be well-versed with Indian mythology.

The plot is entirely set in the present time and is about a modern protagonist named Vasu, who is quite like Karna – born illegitimate, very talented but denied all credits in life, rejected in love. He begins to identify himself with Karna. Vasu misses a medal in the Asian games, gets caught for telling an innocent lie

Chamber
41 The Dream of the Red Chamber (Abridged) - Cao Xueqin
Auteur : Cao Xueqin
Genre : Romans et littérature
One of China's Four Great Classical Novels, "The Dream of the Red Chamber" is perhaps the greatest novel written in the Chinese vernacular. Its authorship is attributed to Cao Xueqin, who lived sometime from the early to mid-eighteenth century. Little is known of Cao Xueqin, except from what was passed down from his contemporaries and friends. An intelligent and artistic man, known for both his poetry and his paintings, Xueqin spent a decade working diligently on "The Dream of the Red Chamber". The result is a wonderfully vivid story of the powerful rise, and subsequent fall, of the Jia clan, an illustrious family representative of the eighteenth century Chinese aristocracy. The novel is said to be semi-autobiographical, and is noted for its detailed observations of the social classes, as well as its deeply psychological explorations of themes like morality, feudalism

However, Genji fell in love with his new stepmother, causing problems between him and his own wife. He pursues a number of affairs, and is eventually exiled from the Capitol to a small, rural town. While Lady Murasaki did not base "The Tale of Genji" on a true story, she was inspired by a Minister in the royal court. She wrote the story in small installments for the ladies of the court, which might explain why the story was never "finished;"

Chauvco quickly became one of the top 30 oil companies in Canada. Rising costs and diminishing oil and gas reserves led Chauvco to consider investing in other countries. In 1992, Chauvco purchased an interest in an Argentine oil and gas block that was being privatized. Chauvco's success in Argentina depended on the country's future political stability and the continuance of government policies. Prior to the 1989 election of Carlos Menem, Argentina experienced decades of political and economic instability, the government nationalized many businesses and imposed detailed regulations throughout the economy - a set of policies that led to low growth, budget and trade deficits, hyperinflation, and currency devaluation. Whether Menem's reforms could achieve long-term success remained to be seen. Chauvco encountered a number of difficulties, as well as some positive aspects of the environment o

Unbelievable
Edition
48 Holy Unbelievable (Abridged Edition) - PC Dixon
Auteur : PC Dixon
Genre : Religion et spiritualité
With an entertaining mix of serious rational analysis and hilarious observations 'Holy Unbelievable' looks at why so many people still believe in the existence of a divine being. The biblical text is examined and its many contradictions and absurdities laid bare.

Is religion the source of human morality? Is worship really the main purpose of human existence? Did Noah genuinely build an ark? It is fair to say that PC Dixon is not convinced.

Religion still has a remarkable hold over many, even in today's scientifically advanced world. 'Holy Unbelievable' looks at why this should be and why we should try to change things.

Whether you are a believer or not this book offers much food for thought and plenty of amusement.
