Your body is teeming with tens of trillions of microbes. It´s an entire world, a colony full of life. In other words, you contain multitudes. These microscopic companions sculpt our organs, protect us from diseases, guide our behaviour and bombard us with their genes. They also hold the key to understanding all life on earth. In I Contain Multitudes, Ed Yong opens our eyes and invites us to marvel at ourselves and other animals in a new light, less as individuals and more as thriving ecosystems. We learn the invisible and wondrous science behind the corals that construct mighty reefs and the squid that create their own light shows. We see how bacteria can alter our response to cancer-fighting drugs, tune our immune system, influence our evolution and even modify our genetic make-up. And we meet the scientists who are manipulating these microscopic partners to our advantage. In a million tiny ways, I Contain Multitudes will radically change how you think about the natural world - and how you see yourself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlie Anson.

Joining the ranks of popular science classics like The Botany of Desire and The Selfish Gene, a groundbreaking, wondrously informative, and vastly entertaining examination of the most significant revolution in biology since Darwin - a ´´microbe´s-eye view´´ of the world that reveals a marvelous, radically reconceived picture of life on Earth. Every animal, whether human, squid, or wasp, is home to millions of bacteria and other microbes. Ed Yong, whose humor is as evident as his erudition, prompts us to look at ourselves and our animal companions in a new light - less as individuals and more as the interconnected, interdependent multitudes we assuredly are. The microbes in our bodies are part of our immune systems and protect us from disease. In the deep oceans, mysterious creatures without mouths or guts depend on microbes for all their energy. Bacteria provide squid with invisibility cloaks, help beetles to bring down forests, and allow worms to cause diseases that afflict millions of people. Many people think of microbes as germs to be eradicated, but those that live with us - the microbiome - build our bodies, protect our health, shape our identities, and grant us incredible abilities. In this astonishing book, Ed Yong takes us on a grand tour through our microbial partners and introduces us to the scientists on the front lines of discovery. It will change both our view of nature and our sense of where we belong in it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlie Anson.

A jubilant celebration of Italy´s outsize impact on culture, from literature to art, music to movies, that ´´masterfully examines the multitude of reasons why so many people fall in love with Italy and the Italian lifestyle´´ (Forbes) Can you imagine painting without Leonardo, opera without Verdi, fashion without Armani, food without the signature tastes of pasta, gelato, and pizza.?The first universities, first banks, first public libraries?

She swims in the playgrounds of mythic gods, shadows artisanal makers of chocolate and cheese, joins in Sicily´s Holy Week traditions, celebrates a neighborhood Carnevale in Venice, and explores pagan temples, vineyards, silk mills, movie sets, crafts studios, and fashion salons. She introduces us, through sumptuous prose, to unforgettable Italians, historical and contemporary, all brimming with the greatest of Italian passions-for life itself. A lyrical portrait of a spirit as well as a nation, La Passione appeals to the Italian in all our souls, inspiring us to be as daring as Italy´s gladiators, as eloquent as its poets, as alluring as its beauties, and as irresistible as its lovers. Praise for La Passione ´´In this sweeping account of la passione italiana from ancient to modern times, Dianne Hales shows once again why she is one the world´s foremost guides to the riches of Italian culture. Every page resonates with the author´s love for Italy and her joy in sharing its remarkable discoveries and exquisite pleasures with her readers.´´ -Joseph Luzzi, author of My Two Italies and In a Dark Wood ´´Hales takes us on an enriching and delightful journey, filled with fascinating characters, scintillating sensual details, and an authentic connection to the ever-inspiring Italian heart and soul that has given the world boundless pleasures.´´ -Susan Van Allen, author of 100 Places in Italy Every Woman Should Go

In a distant world five times the size of planet Earth, dungeons and their dungeon cores have become the top of the food chain. Millions of dungeons inhabit the planet, utilizing the various human kingdoms as a source of much-needed mana to facilitate their own growth; in turn, the humans delve into the dungeons and acquire their own power in the form of essence, which allows them to develop and enhance themselves in a multitude of different ways. It is a symbiotic relationship that has lasted centuries and has brought about a measure of peace. Far in the Northern wilds where no humans (and therefore - no dungeons) regularly frequent, a young man is left alone when his parents are murdered suddenly and unexpectedly. Now, without friends, family, or even supplies, he embarks on a journey to find out who targeted his parents - and upon whom he needs to enact his revenge. Along the way, he discovers something about himself that his parents said was impossible from the moment he was born. Will he learn to control the new powers he has gained, or will his newly awakened dungeon core abilities consume him? Contains LitRPG elements such as statistics and leveling. No harems and no profanity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Don Donaldson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/148280/bk_acx0_148280_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
