The invention of nature Alexander Von Humboldt's new world by Andrea Wulf( Sound Recording )
4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 182 libraries worldwide
Alexander von Humboldt was an intrepid explorer and the most famous scientist of his age. His restless life was packed with adventure and discovery, whether climbing the highest volcanoes in the world or racing through anthrax-infested Siberia. He came up with a radical vision of nature, that it was a complex and interconnected global force and did not exist for man's use alone. Ironically, his ideas have become so accepted and widespread that he has been nearly forgotten. Now Andrea Wulf brings the man and his achievements back into focus: his investigation of wild environments around the world; his discoveries of similarities between climate zones on different continents; his prediction of human-induced climate change; his remarkable ability to fashion poetic narrative out of scientific observation; and his relationships with iconic figures such as Simn Bolvar and Thomas Jefferson

House lust America's obsession with our homes by Daniel F McGinn( Sound Recording )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 140 libraries worldwide
What is it about the rustic beauty of hardwood floors or the luxury of natural stone countertops that turns ordinary people into covetous friends, competitive neighbors, and shameless snoops? In House Lust, Newsweek writer Daniel McGinn takes readers inside the homes-and the psyches-of people all over the country to discover what's fueling the national fixation on where and how we live today.If eyes are the windows to our souls, then our homes are the windows into our taste, our wallets, and, arguably, our very identities. Buying a house or apartment is a rite of passage, so it's only natural that we spend a lot of time talking about our homes-and our neighbors' homes. House Lust is filled with stories of what people are not talking about:-The kitchen designer who in four years saw seven of her twenty clients' marriages end in divorce-The woman who took a sledgehammer to her kitchen while her husband was away on a fishing trip to motivate him to start remodeling-"Zillowing"-using the Web site Zillow.com to find out how much your friends (and enemies) paid for their homesIn a narrative that blends comic social commentary with incisive reporting, McGinn proves what real estate agents have known all along: people are not just buying a house, they're buying an identity. House Lust is an astute, funny, and sometimes disturbing portrait of contemporary America
