An adrenaline-fuelled expose of life inside the tech bubble, Chaos Monkeys lays bare the secrets, power plays and lifestyle excesses of the visionaries, grunts, sociopaths, opportunists and money cowboys who are revolutionising our world. Written by startup CEO and industry provocateur Antonio Garcia Martinez, this is Liars Poker meets The Social Network. Computer engineers use `chaos monkey software to wreak havoc and test system robustness. Similarly, tech entrepreneurs like Antonio Garcia Martinez are societys chaos monkeys - their innovations disrupt every aspect of our lives, from transportation (Uber) and holidays (Airbnb) to television (Netflix) and dating (Tinder) - all in search of the perfect business miracle. Describing himself as `high-strung, fast-talking, and wired on a combination of caffeine, fear, and greed at all times, Garcia Martinez left Wall Street to make his fortune in Silicon Valley, becoming CEO of his own startup, before bailing and being poached by Facebooks nascent advertising team. Here he turned users data into profit for COO Sheryl Sandberg and chairman and CEO Mark `Zuck Zuckerberg. Forced out of Facebook in the wake of a bitter internal product war, Garcia Martinez took his unique brand of entrepreneurial hyperactivity to rivals Twitter. Along the way, he got into a lot of trouble with a lot of people, brewed illegal beer on the Facebook campus (accidentally flooding Zuckerbergs desk), lived on a yacht, raced sport cars on the highway, and enthusiastically pursued the lifestyle of an overpaid Silicon Valley mercenary. In Chaos Monkeys he tells you HOW - and HOW NOT - to make a fortune through startups and digital marketing. Highly entertaining and always offering genuine insight, Garcia Martinez unravels the chaotic evolution of social media and online marketing. From startups and credit derivatives to Big Brother and data tracking, social media monetisation and digital `privacy, he shares both his scathing observations and outrageous antics, taking us on a subversive and very funny tour of the fascinatingly insular and unbelievably wealthy tech industry.

Edited, introduced and annotated by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex. The Winters Tale, one of Shakespeares later romantic comedies, offers a striking and challenging mixture of tragic and violent events, lyrical love-speeches, farcical comedy, pastoral song and dance, and, eventually, dramatic revelations and reunions. Thematically, there is a rich orchestration of the contrasts between age and youth, corruption and innocence, decline and regeneration. Both Leontes murderous jealousy and Perditas love-relationship with Florizel are eloquently intense. In the theatre, The Winters Tale often proves to be diversely entertaining and deeply moving.
Crime and Punishment is the story of a brutal double murder and its aftermath. An impoverished ex-student, Raskolnikov, kills an old pawnbroker and her sister, apparently for financial gain. But as he encounters friends and family, strangers and adversaries, Raskolnikov is compelled to face the true forces that have led him to murder. His struggle with himself and those around him becomes a battle of the individual against society, radicalism against tradition, and ultimately the will of man against the mysteries of divine providence. Crime and Punishment is a compelling and rewarding novel, full of meaning and symbolism that have invited analysis and controversy for nearly a century and a half. It was a sensation in its day, and its themes, methods and characterisation have left an indelible stamp on world literature.

Flowers and birds are integral elements in the original culture of Peterhof. They thrived, and survive to this day, in the palace interiors and the paintings, sculpture, furniture, porcelain and glass ornaments, and bronze statuary that fill the rooms. The palaces at Peterhof demonstrate how representations of birds and flowers have evolved in Oriental, European and Russian art.

This edition of the text includes notes, a glossary and an introduction.

Set in the reign of Richard I, Coeur de Lion, Ivanhoe is packed with memorable incidents - sieges, ambushes and combats - and equally memorable characters: Cedric of Rotherwood, the die-hard Saxon; his ward Rowena; the fierce Templar knight, Sir Brian de Bois-Gilbert; the Jew, Isaac of York, and his beautiful, spirited daughter Rebecca; Wamba and Gurth, jester and swineherd respectively. Scott explores the conflicts between the Crown and the powerful Barons, between the Norman overlords and the conquered Saxons, and between Richard and his scheming brother, Prince John. At the same time he brings into the novel the legendary Robin Hood and his band, and creates a brilliant, colourful account of the age of chivalry with all its elaborate rituals and costumes and its values of honour and personal glory.
