'A true hero' Greta Thunberg
A legendary conservationist. A lifetime spent fighting for nature. An indispensable message of hope.
In a world that seems so troubled, how do we hold on to hope?
Looking at the headlines?the worsening climate crisis, loss of biodiversity, political upheaval?it can be hard to feel optimistic. And yet hope has never been more desperately needed.
In this urgent book, Jane Goodall, the world's most famous living naturalist, and Douglas Abrams, the bestselling co-author of The Book of Joy, explore through intimate and thought-provoking dialogue one of the most sought after and least understood elements of human nature: hope. In The Book of Hope, Jane focuses on her "Four Reasons for Hope": The Amazing Human Intellect, The Resilience of Nature, The Power of Young People, and The Indomitable Human Spirit.
Filled with inspiring stories and original photographs, The Book of Hope is a rare and intimate look not only at the nature of hope but also into the heart and mind of a woman who revolutionized how we view the world and has spent a lifetime fighting for our future.
There is still hope, and this book will help guide us to it.
A powerful, stirring yet utterly down-to-earth story with an unforgettable message about anger, compassion and forgiveness.
Based on a true story from the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu's childhood, Desmond and the Very Mean Word depicts an incident in a South African town. While proudly riding his new bicycle, young Desmond is rudely insulted by some neighbourhood boys - and at first he responds angrily. But he's troubled to find that retaliation brings him no relief, and he can't stop thinking about the mean things the boys said to him. With the aid of the kindly Father Trevor, Desmond arrives at a better understanding of his feelings and learns that true forgiveness comes from within - and arises when you choose to regard all people with compassion, whether or not they say they are sorry.
A beautiful tale of forgiveness, as well as a lesson about how to handle bullying and feelings of anger, embarrassment and revenge, this is a vibrantly illustrated, deeply warm-hearted story.

Not too long ago, it was thought that inflammation of blood vessels was the sole manifestation of systemic autoimmune diseases. Today, however, we know that disorders of coagulation, injuries to both neutrophils and endothelial cells, and certain lipids and amino acids are all intricately involved in the development of vascular disease. How are all these processes linked? What strategies can we employ or develop to halt the progression of vascular damage? What are the best ways to control acute vasculitis and vasospasm therapeutically? What are the risks and benefits of various strategies for the prevention of clotting? How soon should we initiate preventive strategies that protect blood vessels from arteriosclerosis in people with acute rheumatic diseases? What should be the nature of those strategies?
Vascular Manifestations of Systemic Autoimmune Diseases provides answers to all these questions. Ronald Asherson, Richard Cervera,Steven B. Abramson, Jean-Charles Piette, and Douglas Triplett- all international experts in the field-have assembled a collection of works that provide a comprehensive analysis of vascular irregularities. Now that most individuals survive the onset of acute systemic autoimmune diseases and live for decades more, halting the long-term attack on vasculature is increasingly important.
Vascular Manifestations of Systemic Autoimmune Diseases not only describes the clinical symptoms of vascular diseases; it also covers in one volume the many mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of these disorders and addresses the newest treatments available for them.
