Book Two of the bestselling Lux series Being connected to Daemon Black sucks... Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon's determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I've sworn him off, even though he's running more hot than cold these days. But we've got bigger problems. Something worse than the Arum has come to town... The Department of Defense is here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I'm a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who's got a secret of his own. He knows what's happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard. But then everything changes... I've seen someone who shouldn't be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he's never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me? No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies...

Plato's First Alcibiades was the recognised introduction to the dialogues of Plato in late antiquity, because it addresses the important question of the nature of the self. Only by discovering this can we understand the perspective from which we view the rest of reality. It was also considered as a necessary first step in our pursuit of happiness, for unless we know what we are we cannot know what will bring about our fulfilment - and without the fulfilment of our true nature we cannot be happy. As a key to human understanding and happiness, the dialogue is as important today as it was in antiquity. Approximate Stephanus pagination accompanies the text. Added to this dialogue, in the form of additional notes and an introduction, is much of Proclus' Commentary written on the understanding that "it will be found by those who are deeply skilled in the philosophy of Plato, that each of his dialogues contains that which the universe contains." The Commentary reveals to the thoughtful student the depths of this important dialogue, its universal form, and its living heart - which is the quickening of the soul by the touch of divine vision. Three modern essays, written with the newcomer in mind, accompany the text and commentary: A Survey of the Soul and Socrates as the Symbolic Daemon of the Alcibiades by Tim Addey, and Possibilities of Self by Guy Wyndham-Jones.

This is the only Perl book that details practical applications that range from enabling cutting-edge research to integrating heterogeneous systems. More and more companies are using Perl as their language of choice for projects great and small in large part because of Perl's popularity among web CGI programmers. Perl's ability to quickly generate and manipulate text files, along with its flexibility in communicating with a variety of systems and platforms, make it indispensable. In many organizations, however, especially those with large-scale programming teams, Perl adopters still fight a daily battle for acceptance. Perl is perceived by the IT managers in these organizations as difficult to manage (because there's no one way to program), impossible to maintain (because deployment does not require compilation), prone to error (because its variables are weakly typed), and maybe even dangerous (because hackers use it). Applied Perl tackles these misperceptions through exploring cases where Perl is being applied inventively in the film industry, financial community, Internet community and scientific community. The book teaches new techniques to advanced Perl programmers and provides sample code and applications that can be customized. In addition it is an advocacy book that shows the power of the Perl language in tangible terms.

"The Romance of Individualism in Emerson and Nietzsche examines the argument, as well as the affinity, between these two philosophers. Nietzsche was an enthusiastic reader of Emerson and inherited from him an interest in provocation as a means of instruction, an understanding of the permanent importance of moods and transitory moments in our lives, and a sense of the revolutionary character of impulse. Both were deliberately outrageous thinkers, striving to shake us out of our complacency.".
