The main objective of this 2002 book is to show that behind the bewildering diversity of historical speculative episodes it is possible to find hidden regularities, thus preparing the way for a unified theory of market speculation. Speculative bubbles require the study of various episodes in order for a comparative perspective to be obtained and the analysis developed in this book follows a few simple but unconventional ideas. Investors are assumed to exhibit the same basic behavior during speculative episodes whether they trade stocks, real estate, or postage stamps. The author demonstrates how some of the basic concepts of dynamical system theory, such as the notions of impulse response, reaction times and frequency analysis, play an instrumental role in describing and predicting speculative behavior. This book will serve as a useful introduction for students of econophysics, and readers with a general interest in economics as seen from the perspective of physics.

Simpletons often claim "I can't even boil an egg" so this slim volume has been written to give them a leg up. Boiled eggs are a must for gentlefolk and as a child our family butler Frobisher would bring the family perfectly boiled eggs from the kitchens where housekeeper Janet Frobisher would daily supervise the kitchen staff in egg boiling. Boiled eggs shored up the British Empire for 500 years, particularly the unctuously runny ones served out of finest 18th century Worcester porcelain egg cups and lovingly fingered with perfectly toasted bread soldiers.
Young children always enjoy looking at bright pictures, and with this book they can also learn to recognize, name and create different patterns. It includes everyday shapes such as wiggly toothpaste or squishy spiral cake, manufactured ones like spotted party balloons or splotches of messy paint, and natural ones such as stripes on a zebra or ripples in water. The straightforward text encourages reading skills and interactivity - see what patterns you can find on a wing of a butterfly, make zigzags in wet sand, and count the rings to find out the age of a tree. This first words and picture book will delight and inform early learners, who will love looking at it with grown-ups or by themselves. Compiled with the advice of educational specialists, this special padded boardbook combines lively, simple text with bold, bright photographs to promote the development of literacy skills. Experts agree that preschool children respond more immediately to photographs than to illustrations, and this book is full of lively images of objects, activities and people that youngsters will encounter in the world around them. The images are carefully arranged into visual and subject groups, such as spots, checks, zigzags, wiggles, swirls, spirals, natural patterns, animal patterns, and patterns that we can make ourselves - such as drizzles of icing or footprints on the ground. Young readers will see and identify with the pictures of children just like them, encouraging them to make connections, and to see how various things develop and work together.
