              The captivating possibilities of extraterrestrial life on exoplanets, based on current scientific knowledge of existing worlds and forms of life In this lively must-read for any space buff, Trefil and Summers bring readers on a marvelous experimental voyage through the possibilit...ies of life--unlike anything we have experienced so far--that could exist on planets outside our own solar system. Their exploration goes far beyond E.T. or little green men: instead the authors posit that a virtually infinite array of life forms could exist on the thousands of newly discovered exoplanets that share our universe. Life could be out there in many forms: on frozen worlds, living in liquid oceans beneath ice and communicating (and even battling) with bubbles; on super-dense planets, where they would have evolved body types capable of dealing with extreme gravity; on tidally locked planets with one side turned eternally toward a star; and even on rogue worlds, which have no star at all. Yet this is no fictional flight of fancy: the authors take what we know about exoplanets and life on our own world and use that data to hypothesize about how, where, and which sorts of life might develop. Given the incredible diversity and variety of exoplanets that we know exist, we can expect a similar, or even higher, level of diversity and variety among the life forms that might evolve on worlds beyond Earth. This fascinating book presents science-based predictions about what sort of creatures we might encounter, should we ever voyage beyond our own solar system. Imagined Life is a must-have for anyone wanting to learn how the realities of our universe may turn out to be far stranger than fiction.

              Cultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know
                

              Cultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Hirsch, E. D.; Read by Meskimen, Jim; By Trefil, James; Kett, Joseph F.

              • RRP: $63.99

              A must-listen for parents and teachers, this major bestseller reveals how cultural literacy is the hidden key to effective education and presents 5000 facts that every literate American should know. In this forceful manifesto Professor E. D. Hirsch, Jr., argues that children in t...he United States are being deprived of the basic knowledge that would enable them to function in contemporary society. They lack cultural literacy: a grasp of background information that writers and speakers assume their audience already has. Even if a student has a basic competence in the English language, he or she has little chance of entering the American mainstream without knowing what a silicon chip is, or when the Civil War was fought. An important work that has engendered a nationwide debate on our educational standards, Cultural Literacy is a required listening for anyone concerned with our future as a literate nation.
