    This title is a comprehensive guide to the biological mysteries that lie behind teenage behaviour. Contrary to popular (parental) opinion, teenagers are not the lazy, unpleasant - frankly, spotty - louts they occasionally appear to be. During the teenage years the brain is undergoing its most radical and fundamental change since the age of two. Nicola Morgan's carefully researched, accessible and humorous examination of the ups and downs of the teenage brain has chapters dealing with powerful emotions, the need for more sleep, the urge to take risks, the difference between genders and the reasons behind addiction or depression. The revised edition of this classic book contains important new research, including information about the discovery of mirror neurons and their effect on the teenage brain. It is shortlisted for the 2006 Royal Society's Aventis Prize for Science Books.

    Inspiring Artists tells us what it is that makes some famous artists so important and memorable, not only in terms of their artistic legacy, but also as to their impact on the wider world. It explores their life and times through significant pieces of their art, looking at the work in terms of its context, from conflict (Goya), to festivities (Bruegel) to personal struggle (Van Gogh). Each work is also considered in terms of its style, technique and artistic innovation. Leonardo da Vinci was a brilliant inventor, engineer, scientist and architect, but he is most famous for being an artist. His fascination and skill in representing the world around him made him a celebrity during his lifetime and an inspiration to many artists both then and now, from Raphael to Andy Warhol.
