Im 17. Jahrhundert war es höchste Zeit, dass ein Genie auftauchte und Schneisen ins Dickicht des Unwissens schlug. Isaac Newton war dieses Genie. Und ein Arschloch. Science Buster Florian Freistetter zeigt, wie intrigant und hinterhältig Newton wirklich war und dass sein Hass auf Robert Hooke und Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz keine Grenzen kannte. Gleichzeitig beweist er, dass Newton die Physik niemals revolutioniert hätte, wenn er nicht solch ein Kotzbrocken gewesen wäre. Wenn Genialität auf Streitsucht trifft – und dabei ein kosmisches Arschloch herauskommt, davon erzählt Freistetters Buch mit schonungslosem Humor.

These handy, informative pocket-sized guides are an essential resource for the novice or experienced birder. The guides in this regional series focus on America's most popular birding hotspots. Featuring 200 specimens each, the guides group birds by family rather than alphabetically, as approved by the American Ornithological Association. A quick-reference alphabetical guide on the inside cover provides an easy way to find a name quickly. Each entry has a vivid photograph showing the bird in its native habitat. On the facing page, a list of bulleted points confirms at a glance the bird's identity. These field ID clues note the bird's size, color, beak and wing shape, markings, song, flight pattern, habitat, and hotspots in which to find them. Special field facts highlighted at the bottom of each entry give additional information about what to look for in the bird's behavior, and detailed maps show the range of each bird's habitat. With a comprehensive index including life list, these user-friendly guides will quickly become favorite companions on the track to lifelong birding.

All of the images have been carefully selected to convey both the sheer beauty and the key identification features of each bird, and many of the photos are larger than those found in other guides. Wherever possible, a variety of plumages are pictured, providing visual coverage and usefulness matching any artwork-illustrated field guide. And many of the images are state-of-the-art digital photographs by Brian Small, one of North America's finest bird photographers. These pictures, many seen here for the first time, reproduce a previously unimaginable level of detail. Finally, the ranges of nearly all species are shown on maps from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, the authority on North American birding. New and experienced birders alike will find this guide indispensable: the clear layout will help novices easily identify the birds they see, while the superb photographs will help seasoned birders confirm identifications.
