✏How to Argue With a Racist Book Summary : Race is real because we perceive it. Racism is real because we enact it. But the appeal to science to strengthen racist ideologies is on the rise - and increasingly part of the public discourse on politics, migration, education, sport and intelligence. Stereotypes and myths about race are expressed not just by overt racists, but also by well-intentioned people whose experience and cultural baggage steer them towards views that are not supported by the modern study of human genetics. Even some scientists are uncomfortable expressing opinions deriving from their research where it relates to race. Yet, if understood correctly, science and history can be powerful allies against racism, granting the clearest view of how people actually are, rather than how we judge them to be. HOW TO ARGUE WITH A RACIST is a vital manifesto for a twenty-first century understanding of human evolution and variation, and a timely weapon against the misuse of science to justify bigotry.

✏Wycliffe and How to Kill A Cat Book Summary : Another classic crime novel featuring Cornwall's Superintendent Wycliffe. The girl was young, with auburn hair arranged on the pillow. Wycliffe could almost believe she was asleep - that is, until he saw her face. She had been strangled, and someone had brutally smashed her face - but after death, not before... She lay in a seedy hotel room down by the docks, but her luggage, her clothes and her make-up all suggested she had more class than her surroundings. Superintendent Wycliffe was officially on holiday, but the case fascinated him. Who was the girl? Why was she lying naked in a shabby hotel room? What was she doing with a thousand pounds hidden underneath some clothing? And, above all, why had someone mutilated her after she was dead? As Wycliffe begins to investigate, he finds there are too many suspects, too many motives - and too many lies . . . Why readers love W.J. Burley: 'First-class, old-time, hyper-ingenious whodunit.'

✏Thank You for Arguing Book Summary : This is a book for when you really have to get your point across.... Rhetoric - the art and science of persuasion - is not just an important skill, but the essential skill. We live our lives surrounded by persuasion: by posters, Coca Cola labels, politicians' press releases, cartoons and pop songs. Using all kinds of contemporary examples (from how Eminem really won the rapping contest in Eight Mile to how a cat coerces its owner into feeding it sooner) to illustrate classical rhetorical strategies, Jay Heinrichs opens our eyes to this hidden world. He teaches us not only to recognise these implicit, subliminal attempts at argument, but how to use these skills to get our own way. From avoiding a speeding ticket to recognising the difference between an argument and a fight, from Stalin's timing secret (and if it worked for the mass-murdering dictator it can work for you) to the Belushi paradigm, via the tactics of Monty Python, Yoda and Queen Victoria, THANK YOU FOR ARGUING is not just a highly enjoyable read, but an incredibly useful one too. From Cicero's secrets for moving an audience to Honest Abe's Shameless Trick, learn how to argue and most importantly how to win.

✏Widdershins Book Summary : Jilly Coppercorn and Geordie Riddell. Since they were introduced in the first Newford story, "Timeskip," back in 1989, their friends and readers alike have been waiting for them to realize what everybody else already knows: that they belong together. But they've been more clueless about how they feel for each other than the characters in When Harry Met Sally. Now in Widdershins, a stand-alone novel of fairy courts set in shopping malls and the Bohemian street scene of Newford's Crowsea area, Jilly and Geordie's story is finally being told. Before it's over, we'll find ourselves plunged into the rancorous and sometimes violent conflict between the magical North American "animal people" and the more newly-arrived fairy folk. We'll watch as Jilly is held captive in a sinister world based on her own worst memories—and Geordie, attempting to help, is sent someplace even worse. And we'll be captivated by the power of love and determination to redeem ancient hatreds and heal old magics gone sour. To walk "widdershins" is to walk counterclockwise or backwards around something. It's a classic pathway into the fairy realm. It's also the way people often back slowly into the relationships that matter, the real ones that make for a life. In Widdershins Charles de Lint has delivered one of his most accessible and moving works of his career.
