National Geographic: The Photographs (National Geographic Collectors Series)

This stunning volume was the gift book of the year when it first published, and the images that grace its pages remain iconic. From the famous Afghan girl whose haunting green eyes stare out from the book’s cover, and her poignant story that captured the world’s interest, to award-winning photography culled from the Society’s vast archives, The Photographs offers readers an inside look at National Geographic and a sharp-eyed view of the world. The book showcases the skill and imagination of such notable Geographic photographers as David Doubilet, William Albert Allard, Sam Abell, Jim Stanfield, Jodi Cobb, Jim Brandenburg, David Alan Harvey, and many more. They share their techniques, as well as personal and colorful anecdotes about individual images and their adventures in the field—sometimes humorous, sometimes terrifying, always vividly compelling. Author Leah Bendavid-Val writes about the photographers’ achievements from technical, journalistic, and artistic perspectives.

Five chapters cover core National Geographic themes—wildlife on land and water; cultures in the United States and around the world; and science, from astronomy to archaeology to the human senses. The photographs in each chapter capture rare moments in nature and the lives of animals, along with defining events in the lives of people everywhere. This exquisite collection is as elegant as it is timeless.

The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science

Meet the ninety year old doctor, who, with the aid of a few simple exercises, is still practising medicine. His is just one of the incredible stories brain expert Norman Doidge tells as he reveals our brain's remarkable ability to repair itself through the power of positive thought.

In The Brain That Changes Itself Doidge introduces us to the fascinating stories at the cutting edge of the brain science and the emerging discipline of 'neuroplasticity' . We meet the stroke victim who unable to feed or dress himself learned to move and talk again, the woman with a rare brain condition that left her feeling as though she was perpetually falling but who through a series of exercises rewired her brain to overcome this and the maverick scientists over turning centuries of assumptions about the brain and it's capacity for renewal. Doidge shows how their incredible work is helping the blind to see, the deaf to hear and causing Nobel laureates to rethink our model of the brain.

This remarkable book will leave you with a sense of wonder at the capabilities of the human brain and the power to change which lies within all of us.

The Science of On-Camera Acting: With Commentary by Dr. Paul Ekman

"One of the most technically focused on-camera manuals on the market... Morris looks at the neuroscience behind human emotions and what the camera actually captures--from the mechanics of dialogue, voice, and physicality, to discovering your own form of naturalistic acting." -Backstage.com

The Science of On-Camera Acting is a fusion of art, science, and on-set experience distilled into a working actor's guide for refining on-camera skills and creating memorable roles.

Listed by Time Magazine as one of the world's most influential psychologists, Dr. Paul Ekman shares recent discoveries in psychology and behavioral science that catalyzed this non-analytic approach for mastering naturalism, comedy, and complex character work in the short time actors have to prepare for auditions and bookings. These techniques keep actors out of their heads and grounded in the moment, in a creative flow, channeling impulse into standout performances.

Learn:

  • A step-by-step process for tailoring your work to the camera's perspective.
  • How impulse is your most powerful tool and how to use it with precision.
  • What science tells us about the nature of identity and how to make psycho-physical transformations into compelling characters completely unlike yourself.
  • How to stop micro-expressing nervousness on camera.
  • How the camera reads the stakes of the scene through the indentation between your collarbone and surrounding muscle tissue.
  • What the camera sees on your face when you are trying to remember a line.
  • Simple, science-based exercises devised for Olympic athletes and adapted for actors to reach peak performance under pressure.
  • Learn why Stanislavski abandoned the Method in favor of a non-analytical approach.

Read The Science of On-Camera Acting before your next audition and find out why actors are calling it their "bible" for on-camera acting.

David Attenborough reveals a secret universe it is teeming with life and is all around us, yet we never see it. It is the world of the very small, and it is a world of sex, drugs and violence.

And not just life in the undergrowth, but the dramatic battles between predator and prey that are happening in the corner of your living room and in your larder. See magnificent spectacles: swarming antler moths; millions of desert locusts; a mountain of locusts. For every pound of humans on Earth, there are 300 pounds of insects.
