In Being and Time Heidegger gives an account of the distinctive features of human existence in an attempt to answer the question of the meaning of being He finds that underlying all of these features is what he calls original time In this clear and straightforward introduction to the text Paul Gorner takes the reader through the work examining its detail and explaining the sometimes difficult language which Heidegger uses The topics which he covers include being in the world being with thrownness and projection truth authenticity time and being and historicity His book makes Being and Time accessible to students in a way that conveys the essence of Heidegger s project and remains true to what is distinctive about his thinking, Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer He trusts no one Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree Hubbard leaves a new handwritten will It is an act that drags his adult children his black maid and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County s most notorious citizens just three years earlier br The second will raises far more questions than it answers Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row, b Noseholes and elephants A pet eating monster interrupts a perfect playdate with Princess Sneezewort but who is that new masked avenger b br br Princess Magnolia and Princess Sneezewort have plans mysterious plans like a princess playdate They dress up slam They karaoke jam They playhouse romp and snack time stomp But then a shout from outside Princess Sneezewort s castle interrupts their fun It s a monster trying to eat someone s kitty This is a job for the Princess in Black Yet when the Princess in Black gets there she finds only a masked stranger and no monster in sight or is there Action and humor abound in this ode to friendship that proves that when shape shifting monsters intrude on your plans two heroes are better than one, Every summer four college friends hold a mini reunion They laugh reminisce and commiserate about their soul sucking jobs Maybe they should have listened to everyone who warned them to study something practical br br Then an unexpected windfall arrives one million dollars to be exact with the stipulation that they use it to jump start their new careers Almost overnight a professor a bartender a copywriter and an administrative assistant reinvent themselves as a novelist an event planner a pastry chef and a bed and breakfast owner But the changes in their professional roles create unexpected turbulence in their personal lives and soon the secrets and scandals from their past start to resurface br br For anyone who has ever wondered What if this engaging novel provides a sweet funny look at friendship romance and second chances br b b
