  • A founder of comparative anatomy and a giant of nineteenth-century biology, Georges Cuvier, and his student and colleague Achille Valenciennes, brought together all that was known about fishes in their massive 22-volume Histoire naturelle des poissons published from 1828 to 1849. Despite the passage of time, this work represents a landmark in the history of science, indispensable to systematic ichthyology and to comparative biology in general. As an introduction to this monumental work, the first volume traces the development of the study of fishes as then understood-from the earliest beginnings to the first third of the nineteenth-century-and summarizes the criteria for classification that their own work would follow. This critically important essay-one of the first attempts at a comprehensive history of any major group of organisms-now appears in English alongside the original French text, beautifully illustrated and accompanied by rich annotations and commentary, serving to bring this important text to our attention and highlighting its historical significance.

  • Prince Louis François de Bourbon-Conti - cousin of King Louis XV of France - was a patron of contemporary intellectuals such as Diderot, Beaumarchais, and Rousseau, and well-known as an avid art collector. His stroke of genius was the purchase of the Romanée vineyard, which later became known as the Romanée-Conti.
    This volume reveals the secrets of the legendary wine, which has earned a cult following of connoisseurs around the world. Following a biography of the Prince of Conti, detailed notes from recent wine tastings allow readers to identify the characteristics of this unique wine, which must be considered within the context of the Climats of Burgundy-the terroirs where the Burgundian grape varieties grow in optimal conditions. These fabled terroirs have benefited from a unique, centuries-long continuity and they were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2015.
    To understand Burgundy, readers must be familiar with its Climats, but also conscious of the climate-the meteorological conditions in which each vintage is created-because the production of fine wines, and especially of those made from grape varieties at the very height of maturity, resembles at times an obstacle course created by nature to play tricks on the winegrower. Laurens Delpech-through lengthy excerpts from harvest reports published since 1996 by Aubert de Villaine,
    co-director of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti-recounts the saga of successive vintages, which illuminates the difficulty of the vigneron's profession.
    This original, complete, and engaging volume brings to the forefront the duality of the Climats and climate that give rise to the finest wines in Burgundy. An excellent overview of the Romanée-Conti, it is also essential reading for those who wish to sharpen their knowledge and appreciation of Burgundian wines.

  • The must-read summary of Atul Gawante's book "The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right".
    This complete summary of the ideas from Atul Gawante's book "The Checklist Manifesto" shows that when solving problems, it's easy to get caught up in the complexities whilst ignoring the obvious, simple solutions. This summary highlights that every business sector can take some tips from the commercial aviation industry's emphasis on checklists. Indeed, despite the growth of super-specialisation, steps are sometimes missed, which demonstrates that problems often exist not because of a lack of knowledge, but just because routine can create complacency.

  • An inevitable Guide, An unique concept

    Between pleasure and emotion

    With this eighth edition, the VERON Champagne Guide reaches its maturity and imposes its originality.
    Faithful to its original concept, which consists in refusing to classify and mark the selected champagnes in order not to reduce them to vulgar consumer goods of which performance could be measured, it continues to develop in accordance with its editorial line.
    The 91 Champagnes selected in this VERON Champagnes Guide 2018 thanks to the numerous tastings, in total independence, offer you the opportunity to travel directly in the heart of the Champagne area, to discover the infinite wealth of it, which enabled it to enter into the UNESCO World Heritage on 4 July 2015.
    A source of fascinating encounters with professionals from Champagne (producers, wine growers and cellar masters), this book is a testimony to the extraordinary creativity of the Champenois, whose ancestral expertise, constantly reinvented, constitutes a true cultural heritage.
    Made in Champagne by Michel VERON, oenologist and oenology teacher at Lycée Viticole de la Champagne since 1991, this book published in French and English was born out of his passion for Champagne tasting, his long experience enriched with innumerable exchanges with the Champenois wine makers and his thirst for discovery...
    "Art and wine serve to bring people together." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

  • This book has been published by Allenvi (French National Alliance for Environmental Research) to coincide with the 22nd Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) in Marrakesh. It is the outcome of work by academic researchers on both sides of the Mediterranean and provides a remarkable scientific review of the mechanisms of climate change and its impacts on the environment, the economy, health and Mediterranean societies. It will also be valuable in developing responses that draw on "scientific evidence" to address the issues of adaptation, resource conservation, solutions and risk prevention. Reflecting the full complexity of the Mediterranean environment, the book is a major scientific contribution to the climate issue, where various scientific considerations converge to break down the boundaries between disciplines.

  • It is said that "words are the mirror of the heart" and that they also reflect my thoughts. If I want my language to be filled with Freedom, Wisdom and Love, there are certain words or at least a certain form of language that I must use.

    Jacques Martel has acquired a great expertise in this area through his many communications with the public since 1998, as much in Quebec as in Europe.

    In this book, which he intends as a practical tool, he shares with us several keys to help us make the messages we want to transmit more easily understood by others at the level of the heart. He gives me the knowledge of certain words related to spiritual principles, which I can integrate into my ordinary language with my family, my friends, my work relationships and when I address myself to a public. The result is a more effective and a truer communication.
