The Little Eye Book: A Pupil’s Guide to Understanding Ophthalmology is an easy-to-understand introduction to the field of eye care. This book is written with the non-physician in mind, so you won’t be bogged down with heavy details, yet every basic fact that you need is right here. With photographs as well as drawings and helpful tables and charts, this conversational-style text packs a big punch. Beginning with an illustrated description of ocular anatomy, the book sweeps you into the workings of vision with hardly a blink, where you’ll learn what happens when light meets the eye. But life is never perfect, and sometimes the eye isn’t either. You’ll get a good overview of disorders and trauma, from lids to optic nerves. The all-important red eye has a section all its own, including symptoms, signs, what’s an emergency and what’s not. A chapter on eye symptoms and their potential causes will help you understand patients’ complaints. Now you will finally understand how the eye works without spending hours trying to get through an overwhelming medical book. Need to know how to take a history, check vision or pupils, or give someone eye medications? It’s in here! Wonder what special testing is available? We tell you! Have questions about surgery or medical treatment? Yep, we covered that, too, and more! The Little Eye Book: A Pupil’s Guide to Understanding Ophthalmology is perfect for anyone who works in the eye care industry or with patients, but isn’t an ophthalmologist.

With My Little Eye

Author: Francis King
Publisher: Pan Macmillan

Release Date: 2013-11-21
Genre: Fiction

Born in Switzerland, Francis King spent his childhood in India, where his father was a government official. While still an undergraduate at Oxford he published his first three novels. He then joined the British Council, working in Italy, Greece, Egypt, Finland and Japan, before he resigned to devote himself entirely to writing. For some years he was drama critic for the Sunday Telegraph and he reviewed fiction regularly for the Spectator. He won the Somerset Maugham Prize, the Katherine Mansfield Prize and the Yorkshire Post Novel of the Year Award for Act of Darkness (1983). His penultimate book, The Nick of Time, was long-listed for the 2003 Man Booker Prize. Francis King died in 2011. "One of our great writers, of the calibre of Graham Greene and Nabokov." Beryl Bainbridge ‘I have known contentment, happiness, and relief from anxiety, pain and unslaked yearning . . . How often I wish that I had known more joy.’ Such are the thoughts running through the narrator’s mind as he recovers from a stroke that has left him with tunnel vision. Constantly travelling backwards in memory to a period that he spent in Japan as a research student, he hopes to recapture some of the euphoria of that period of immersion in a culture both so enticing and so alien to him. Retracing those far-off days with a mixture of longing, regret and guilt, he introduces the reader to the principal figures in his life at the time: his rich wife, bored and unhappy in the suffocating summer heat; his research assistant, the quaint yet efficient Miss Morita; and his mysteriously threatening houseboy Hiro. Utterly absorbed in his study of Japanese art, he fails at first to note that things are not all as they seem. Beneath the apparently sunny surface of his existence a dark chasm is opening. As his restricted vision forces him to look increasingly inward, so, paradoxically, he begins to see long-past events with sharper focus and more intense clarity – until, in a flash, the recovery of a memory previously submerged reveals to him the nature of the horrendous event that precipitated his stroke.

"Ein wenig Leben" handelt von der lebenslangen Freundschaft zwischen vier Männern in New York, die sich am College kennengelernt haben. Jude St. Francis, brillant und enigmatisch, ist die charismatische Figur im Zentrum der Gruppe – ein aufopfernd liebender und zugleich innerlich zerbrochener Mensch. Immer tiefer werden die Freunde in Judes dunkle, schmerzhafte Welt hineingesogen, deren Ungeheuer nach und nach hervortreten. "Ein wenig Leben" ist ein rauschhaftes, mit kaum fasslicher Dringlichkeit erzähltes Epos über Trauma, menschliche Güte und Freundschaft als wahre Liebe. Es begibt sich an die dunkelsten Orte, an die Literatur sich wagen kann, und bricht dabei immer wieder zum hellen Licht durch.

Release Date: 2008-12-04
Genre: Fiction

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.
