              From tiny insects to sleek sharks and majestic elephants, this book invites you to explore the animal kingdom up close - from nose to tail. Whether you're interested in specific animal groups such as mammals or birds or have a passion for wildlife photography, this beautiful book... will delight, fascinate, and surprise. DK's elegant new introduction to wild animals is packed with dramatic photography that celebrates their beauty. Crystal-clear diagrams then explain how animals work and describe how they are adapted to do different things and to survive in different environments. The unique nose-to-tail approach, with chapters on different body parts, allows you to focus in on the beauty of the antenna of a moth, the flight feathers of a parrot, or the feeding tentacles of a jellyfish. Fauna also explores how we have depicted animals in art throughout the ages, from zoological drawings that recorded new discoveries to great paintings inspired by a deep connection to the natural world. With fascinating stories, such as how animals communicate, defend their territories, and attract mates, The Science of Animals offers an engaging introduction to the extraordinary diversity of the animal kingdom.

              Learning to code has never been easier than with this innovative visual guide to computer programming for beginners. Coding skills are in high demand and the need for programmers is still growing. However, taking the first steps in learning more about this complex subject may see...m daunting and many of us feel left behind by the coding revolution.

              Reduce or eliminate your alcohol consumption. It's so easy for alcohol creep to set in: the G&T after work to unwind, a social beer with a colleague, a glass of wine (or two!) of an evening. Add them all up, however, and you might find yourself wanting to rethink those habits. Yo...u may be fed up of midweek hangovers, or motivated by health concerns or even budgetary ones. Dry is the New Drunk gives you a day-by-day practical support plan to help you take control of your alcohol intake. Without preaching or waffling, this book guides you towards more mindful, moderate drinking habits, helping you understand your behaviour and plan your self-moderation goals. It gives you tools to help you track progress, deal with triggers and social stresses, and stay on track for the long term. There are also support strategies for social situations that you can carry through to your day-to-day life all year round - not just in Dry January or Sober for October. The Club Soda team know what they are talking about, and their methods are tried and tested by the loyal community of mindful drinkers they have built up. Learn how you too can make lasting, successful behavioural change that impacts positively on your social life and lifestyle.
