Eric Underwood, also known as Spaghetti Legs and Pizza Features, serves up the final course in the pasta trilogy: Lasagne Brain. Eric would love to be an intellectual and here he unexpectedly takes the journey from boyhood to manhood, and the only question he wants to ask is: can he go back? With his mind-boggling essays driving teachers out of their minds, the love of his life Veronica Roberts dumping him, his best friend hanging round Woolies with a trolley full of bananas hoping to pick up more than potassium poisoning, and his father watching pre-recorded golf, there?s only one thing for Eric to do: retreat to his bedroom in self-imposed exile. Eric?s ambition is to lock himself away for the rest of his teenage years. And if it wasn?t for the Teletubbies and the arrival of Imelda, the Scots girl he French kissed in an English pub, he might just have made it!

Trying to get enough kids to form a decent football team isn?t easy! It?s not just the playing time involved on the weekends; it?s the training sessions after school and at night too. But when the Wildcats reluctantly take on Peta `Gazza? Gascoigne to make up the numbers, they quickly discover that she?s the best player they?ve got. Not only that, she?s got an attractive and apparently unattached?or loosely attached?mum. And Splinters is looking for a new partner for his dad. Everything looks set on and off the field, but Gazza and her mum have been deported back to England for overstaying their visa and suddenly disappeared without a trace. Nothing for it but to fly to England, track them down and persuade them to come back. But where are the Wildcats going to get the money? Nuke gets the bright idea that they can borrow his father?s credit card and book their flights on the internet. And that?s where the real trouble begins!

The Wildcats are in trouble again! Down on the ground, there?s got to be some way of raising funds, and their coach comes up with health food bars. Only trouble is they?re inedible, and whoever sells the most gets an all-expenses-paid trip to Canberra. Up in the air, though, Splinters and Nuke are on their way to London to retrieve their best player, Gazza, who?s been deported back to England with her mum, and the two boys get up to the sort of in-flight antics that have made travelling footballers notorious. Grappling as always with the problem of how to make up the numbers, someone remembers a genius footballer called Armitage Shanks who registered for the Under 6s, but never turned up for training or played a single game. Then the obvious question: how do you know he was a genius? And (to Splinters) the equally obvious answer: he had great boots! But when Armitage Shanks turns up, it?s a bigger surprise than the Wildcats have bargained for. A crazy adventure with an unexpectedly moving conclusion, this is one of John Larkin?s funniest books in the series - but it also offers a little insight into success and fame.

Splinters wants the Wildcats to try for the Guinness Book of Records marathon soccer match in order to raise some money and buy Tangles a special machine from the States that will save his life. But when the English FA decide to hold a competition for a couple of junior soccer teams to play a curtain raiser for the grand reopening of Wembley Stadium, Splinters is ready to abandon Tangles to his fate and put all his energy into that instead.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The New York Times–bestselling author of The Brain That Changes Itself presents astounding advances in the treatment of brain injury and illness. Now in an updated and expanded paperback edition. Winner of the 2015 Gold Nautilus Award in Science & Cosmology In his groundbreaking work The Brain That Changes Itself, Norman Doidge introduced readers to neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to change its own structure and function in response to activity and mental experience. Now his revolutionary new book shows how the amazing process of neuroplastic healing really works. The Brain’s Way of Healing describes natural, noninvasive avenues into the brain provided by the energy around us—in light, sound, vibration, and movement—that can awaken the brain’s own healing capacities without producing unpleasant side effects. Doidge explores cases where patients alleviated chronic pain; recovered from debilitating strokes, brain injuries, and learning disorders; overcame attention deficit and learning disorders; and found relief from symptoms of autism, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and cerebral palsy. And we learn how to vastly reduce the risk of dementia, with simple approaches anyone can use. For centuries it was believed that the brain’s complexity prevented recovery from damage or disease. The Brain’s Way of Healing shows that this very sophistication is the source of a unique kind of healing. As he did so lucidly in The Brain That Changes Itself, Doidge uses stories to present cutting-edge science with practical real-world applications, and principles that everyone can apply to improve their brain’s performance and health.

Are you still the person who lived fifteen, ten or five years ago? Fifteen, ten or five minutes ago? Can you plan for your retirement if the you of thirty years hence is in some sense a different person? What and who is the real you? Does it remain constant over time and place, or is it something much more fragmented and fluid? Is it known to you, or are you as much a mystery to yourself as others are to you?With his usual wit, infectious curiosity and bracing scepticism, Julian Baggini sets out to answer these fundamental and unsettling questions. His fascinating quest draws on the history of philosophy, but also anthropology, sociology, psychology and neurology; he talks to theologians, priests, allegedly reincarnated Lamas, and delves into real-life cases of lost memory, personality disorders and personal transformation; and, candidly and engagingly, he describes his own experiences. After reading The Ego Trick, you will never see yourself in the same way again.

From emails to social media, from instant messaging to political memes, the way we produce and transmit culture is radically changing. Understanding the consequences of the massive diffusion of digital media is of the utmost importance, both from the intellectual and the social point of view. 'Cultural Evolution in the Digital Age' proposes that a specific discipline - cultural evolution - provides an excellent framework to analyse our digital age. Cultural evolution is a vibrant, interdisciplinary, and increasingly productive scientific framework that aims to provide a naturalistic and quantitative explanation of culture. In the book the author shows how cultural evolution offers both a sophisticated view of human behaviour, grounded in cognitive science and evolutionary theory, and a strong quantitative and experimental methodology. The book examines in depth various topics that directly originate from the application of cultural evolution research to digital media. Is online social influence radically different from previous forms of social influence? Do digital media amplify the effects of popularity and celebrity influence? What are the psychological forces that favour the spread of online misinformation? What are the effects of the hyper-availability of information online on cultural cumulation? The cultural evolutionary perspective provides novel insights, and a relatively encouraging take on the overall effects of our online activities on our culture. Cultural Evolution is an area of rapidly growing interest, and this timely book will be important reading for students and researchers in the fields of psychology, anthropology, cognitive science, and the media.

Feeling the red, heart-shaped urgency intensify as the years roll on by? Oh hi! You're in the right place. Over half of Brits aged 25-44 are now single. It's become the norm to remain solo until much later in life, given the average marriage ages of 35 (women) and 38 (men). Many of us are choosing never to marry at all. But society, films, song lyrics and our parents are adamant that a happy ending has to be couple-shaped. That we're incomplete without an 'other half'*, like a bisected panto pony. Cue: single sorrow. Dating like it's a job. Spending half our lives waiting for somebody-we-fancy to text us back. Feeling haunted by the terms 'spinster' or 'confirmed bachelor.' Catherine Gray took a whole year off dating to find single satisfaction. She lifted the lid on the reasons behind the global single revolution, explored the bizarre ways cultures single-shame, detached from 'all the good ones are gone!' panic and debunked the myth that married people are much happier.

Machines that are smarter than people? A utopian dream of science-fiction novelists and Hollywood screenwriters perhaps, but one which technological progress is turning into reality. Two trends are coming together: exponential growth in the processing power of supercomputers, and new software which can copy the way neurons in the human brain work and give machines the ability to learn. Smart systems will soon be commonplace in homes, businesses, factories, administrations, hospitals and the armed forces. How autonomous will they be? How free to make decisions? What place will human beings still have in a world controlled by robots? After the atom bomb, is artificial intelligence the second lethal weapon capable of destroying mankind, its inventor? The Fall of the Human Empire traces the little-known history of artificial intelligence from the standpoint of a robot called Lucy. She – or it? – recounts her adventures and reveals the mysteries of her long journey with humans, and provides a thought-provoking storyline of what developments in A.I. may mean for both humans and robots.
