Where did we come from? Where are we going? Homo sapiens is the most successful, the most widespread and the most influential species ever to walk the Earth. In the blink of an evolutionary eye we have spread around the globe, taken control of Earth's biological and mineral resources, transformed the environment, discovered the secrets of the universe and traveled into space. Yet just 7 million years ago, we were just another species of great ape making a quiet living in the forests of East Africa. We do not know exactly what this ancestor was like, but it was no more likely than a chimpanzee or gorilla to sail across the ocean, write a symphony, invent a steam engine or ponder the meaning of existence. How did we get from there to here? Human Origins recounts the most astonishing evolutionary tale ever told. Discover how our ancestors made the first tentative steps towards becoming human, how we lost our fur but gained language, fire and tools, how we strode out of Africa, invented farming and cities and ultimately created modern civilization - perhaps the only one of its kind in the universe. Meet your long-lost ancestors, the other humans who once shared the planet with us, and learn where the story might end.

Think of a number between one and ten. No, hang on, let's make this interesting. Between zero and infinity. Even if you stick to the whole numbers, there are a lot to choose from - an infinite number in fact. Throw in decimal fractions and infinity suddenly gets an awful lot bigger (is that even possible?) And then there are the negative numbers, the imaginary numbers, the irrational numbers like pi which never end. It literally never ends. The world of numbers is indeed strange and beautiful. Among its inhabitants are some really notable characters - pi, e, the 'imaginary' number i and the famous golden ratio to name just a few. Prime numbers occupy a special status. Zero is very odd indeed: is it a number, or isn't it? How Numbers Work takes a tour of this mind-blowing but beautiful realm of numbers and the mathematical rules that connect them. Not only that, but take a crash course on the biggest unsolved problems that keep mathematicians up at night, find out about the strange and unexpected ways mathematics influences our everyday lives, and discover the incredible connection between numbers and reality itself.

The Greek myths are the greatest stories ever told, passed down through millennia and inspiring writers and artists as varied as Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce and Walt Disney. They are embedded deeply in the traditions, tales and cultural DNA of the West.

In Stephen Fry's hands the stories of the titans and gods become a brilliantly entertaining account of ribaldry and revelry, warfare and worship, debauchery, love affairs and life lessons, slayings and suicides, triumphs and tragedies.You'll fall in love with Zeus, marvel at the birth of Athena, wince at Cronus and Gaia's revenge on Ouranos, weep with King Midas and hunt with the beautiful and ferocious Artemis.

Thoroughly spellbinding, informative and moving, Stephen Fry's Mythos perfectly captures these stories for the modern age - in all their rich and deeply human relevance.

Danksy die honderde duisende koerante wat die afgelope eeu ses dae per week uitgegee is, is Die Burger vandag 'n huishoudelike naam.
Die boek diep van die merkwaardigste gebeure, groot en klein, op wat sy joernaliste beleef het - van die Groot Griep en die twee wêreldoorloë tot Chris Barnard se eerste hartoorplanting en Nelson Mandela se afsterwe in 2013.
Skandes en skandale, natuurrampe, persoonlikhede in die nuus, belangrike sportmomente - die boek is nie net 'n belangrike optekening nie, maar het ook groot nostalgiewaarde. Die 'onthou jy nog?'-faktor word versterk deur hope foto's én spotprente. Enkele hoogtepunte:
- Lindie Koorts skryf oor DF Malan, eerste redakteur
- Dana Snyman ondersoek die oorsprong van DJ Opperman se bekende gedig, Klara Majola - 'n Burger-berig in 1950
- Johann Maarman deel sy indrukke van Jakes Gerwel
- Leopold Scholtz beskryf die val van die Berlynse Muur
- Francois Verster vertel van Die Burger se spotprent-tekenaars - DC Boonzaaier, TO Honiball en Fred Mouton
- Bun Booyens was in Kazakstan vir Mark Shuttleworth se reis as eerste ruimtetoeris in 2002

Vanweë hulle posisie in die kontakgebied tussen 'ras' en klas is huiswerkers perfek geposisioneer om die belangrikste tolke en vertalers in die Suid-Afrikaanse samelewing te wees; tussen ryk en arm, stad en platteland, werkgewers en werknemers. Dekades lank was huiswerkers die enigste swart en bruin mense wat wit stedelinge enigsins van naderby geken en in hulle huise toegelaat het - en op min plekke vind hierdie gegewe so sterk neerslag as in die Suid-Afrikaanse letterkunde. Ongeveer tien jaar ná die einde van apartheid het Ena Jansen na huiswerkers se spore in Suid-Afrikaanse stadsboeke begin soek.
Soos familie:Stedelike huiswerkers in Suid-Afrikaanse tekste gee via die letterkunde op boeiende wyse insig in die omstandighede van 'die bediende' as 'n sosiale en ekonomiese instelling wat so ver terugstrek as die eerste jare van die vestiging van die Kaap. Vanuit hierdie oogpunt gesien, is die indiensneming van bediendes en alles wat daarmee saamhang een van die oudste praktyke in die Suid-Afrikaanse geskiedenis, miskien selfs 'n historiese konstante wat alle ander veranderinge oorleef het.
Die boek is 'n verkenning van die rol en betekenis van ongeveer 'n honderd huisbediendekarakters in stadsboeke uit 'n groot deel van die twintigste eeu en daarná - weliswaar teen die agtergrond van sosiologiese gegewens, maar veral ook met die voortdurende besef dat tekste die mag het om in te werk op die werklikheid.

A book of memories for my grandchildren is an exciting new concept in South Africa. Essentially, the book is a record of the events that took place in the grandparent's life.
The questions in the book which the grandparent must answer, give a picture of the personality, characteristics and life of the grandparent. There are questions about the grandparent's childhood years, family history (a family tree can be completed), his/her years as an adult, the wedding day, as well as questions about general aspects of his/her life and a section where the grandparent's opinions on some issues are asked. There is ample space given to make the book personal with photographs, recipes, and the grandparent's signature, which will make the book a precious keepsake and memento.
Sometimes we neglect to ask our grandparents about their lives and only when they are no longer there, we realise it is too late. Now grandchildren can have a tangible book full of memories that can be passed on from generation to generation.
