How the principles of biological innovation can help us overcome creative challenges in art, business, and science...
In Life Finds a Way, biologist Andreas Wagner reveals the deep symmetry between innovation in biological evolution and human cultural creativity. Rarely is either a linear climb to perfection - instead, "progress" is typically marked by a sequence of peaks, plateaus, and pitfalls. For instance, in Picasso's 40-some iterations of Guernica, we see the same combination of small steps, incessant reshuffling, and large, almost reckless, leaps that characterize the way evolution transformed a dinosaur's grasping claw into a condor's soaring wing. By understanding these principles, we can also better realize our own creative potential to find new solutions to adversity.
Ultimately, Life Finds a Way offers a new framework for the nature of creativity, enabling us to better adapt, grow, and change in art, business, or science - that is, in life.

Scientific Creationism delivers a meticulously researched, scientific investigation of the most important aspects of the creation-evolution question. Dr. Henry Morris along with the Institute for Creation Science researchers and consultants allow science to speak for itself without referencing the Bible or other religious literature in this undeniable study of origins. Within their thorough exploration, you will find irrefutable evidence that supports creationism rather than evolutionism.
Morris and team write to scientists and non-scientists alike revealing how each new scientific discovery or analysis weakens the traditional case for evolution and strengthens the case for creation. Scientific Creationism gives equal consideration to both scientific philosophies and offers more scientific reasoning and logical interpretation than most educational textbooks used in today's high school and college classes.
Explore the evidence. Study the scientific flaws of Darwin's theory through the eyes of Dr. Henry Morris and the brilliant scientists of the Institute for Creation Research. Could evolutionary thinking be founded on anticipated evidence? Scientific Creationism separates fact from theory so you can evaluate the creation and evolution models within the context of established physical laws.

Gendered brains: a sexist myth or a fact of life?
Reading maps or reading emotions? Barbie or Lego? We live in a gendered world where we are bombarded with messages about sex and gender. On a daily basis we face deeply ingrained beliefs that your sex determines your skills and preferences, from toys and colours to career choice and salaries. But what does this constant gendering mean for our thoughts, decisions and behaviour? And what does it mean for our brains?
Drawing on her life's work as a Professor of Cognitive Neuroimaging, Gina Rippon unpacks the stereotypes that bombard us from our earliest moments and shows how these messages mould our ideas of ourselves and even shape our brains. Taking us back through centuries of sexism, The Gendered Brain reveals how science has been misinterpreted or misused to ask the wrong questions. Instead of challenging the status quo, we are still working back from outdated stereotypes and assumptions. However, by exploring new, cutting-edge neuroscience, Rippon urges us to move beyond a binary view of our brains and instead to see these complex organs as highly individualised, profoundly adaptable and full of unbounded potential.
Rigorous, timely and liberating, The Gendered Brain has huge repercussions for women and men, for parents and children and for how we identify ourselves.
This is not feminist science - it's just science.
