Have you been told there's a little too much telling in your novel? Want to remedy it? Then this is the book for you! In Show & Tell in a Nutshell: Demonstrated Transitions from Telling to Showing you will find sixteen real scenes depicting a variety of situations, emotions, and characteristics which clearly demonstrate how to turn telling into showing. Dispersed throughout, and at the back of the book, are blank pages to take notes as you read. A few short writing prompts are also provided. Not only is this pocket guide an excellent learning tool for aspiring writers, but it is a light, convenient, and easy solution to honing your craft no matter how broad your writing experience.

n The Pyramids in a Nutshell, Charlotte Booth examines the evolution of Egyptian and Nubian pyramids, from simple mastaba tombs, through the "glory days" of the Great Pyramid at Giza, and on to lesser known pyramids. Topics covered include: who built the pyramids, how the pyramids were constructed, what they were used for and even the building complexes which surrounded them. From early burials, through stepped pyramids to true pyramids, and from the Old Kingdom to Nubia, this book is a perfectly balanced introduction to this fascinating topic. MadeGlobal's History in a Nutshell Series aims to give readers a good grounding in a historical topic in a concise, easily digestible and easily accessible way. Charlotte Booth has been teaching Egyptology, Archaeology and Hieroglyphs for 15 years and has also worked for the Supreme Council of Antiquities, in Cairo, and the American Research Center in Egypt, at Luxor. She has a BA and MA from University College London in Egyptian Archaeology and is currently studying towards her PhD at the University of Birmingham.
This book is the essential new introduction to modern string theory, by one of the world's authorities on the subject. Concise, clearly presented, and up-to-date, "String Theory in a Nutshell" brings together the best understood and most important aspects of a theory that has been evolving since the early 1980s. A core model of physics that substitutes one-dimensional extended "strings" for zero-dimensional point-like particles (as in quantum field theory), string theory has been the leading candidate for a theory that would successfully unify all fundamental forces of nature, including gravity.
Starting with the basic definitions of the theory, Elias Kiritsis guides readers through classic and modern topics. In particular, he treats perturbative string theory and its Conformal Field Theory (CFT) tools in detail while also developing nonperturbative aspects and exploring the unity of string interactions. He presents recent topics including black holes, their microscopic entropy, and the AdS/CFT correspondence. He also describes matrix model tools for string theory. In all, the book contains nearly five hundred exercises for the graduate-level student, and works as a self-contained and detailed guide to the literature.
"String Theory in a Nutshell" is the staple one-volume reference on the subject not only for students and researchers of theoretical high-energy physics, but also for mathematicians and physicists specializing in theoretical cosmology and QCD.
