The sibling effect : what the bonds among brothers and sisters reveal about us by Jeffrey Kluger( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work explores what scientists and researchers are discovering about sibling bonds, the longest-lasting relationships we have in our lives. Nobody affects us as deeply as our brothers and sisters, not parents, not children, not friends. From the time we, and they, are born, our siblings are our collaborators and co-conspirators, our role models and cautionary tales. They teach us how to resolve conflicts and how not to, how to conduct friendships and when to walk away. Our siblings are the only people we know who truly qualify as partners for life. In this book, the author, a science writer explores the complex world of siblings in a way that is equal parts science, psychology, sociology, and memoir. Based heavily on new and emerging research, the book examines birth order, twin studies, genetic encoding of behavioral traits, emotional disorders and their effects on, and effects from, sibling relationships, and much more. -- From publisher description

Apollo 8 : the thrilling story of the first mission to the Moon by Jeffrey Kluger( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1968, NASA made a bold decision: in just sixteen weeks, the United States would launch humankind's first flight to the moon. Only the year before, three astronauts had burned to death in their spacecraft, and since then the Apollo program had suffered one setback after another. Meanwhile, the Russians were winning the space race, the Cold War was getting hotter by the month, and President Kennedy's promise to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade seemed sure to be broken. But when Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders were summoned to a secret meeting and told of the dangerous mission, they instantly signed on. Written with all the color and verve of the best narrative nonfiction, Apollo 8 takes us from Mission Control to the astronauts' homes, from the test labs to the launchpad. The race to prepare an untested rocket for an unprecedented journey paves the way for the hair-raising trip to the moon. Then, on Christmas Day, a nation that has suffered a horrendous year of assassinations and war is heartened by an inspiring message from the trio of astronauts in lunar orbit. And when the mission is over -- after the first view of the far side of the moon, the first earthrise, and the first reentry through the Earth's atmosphere following a flight to deep space -- the impossible dream of walking on the moon suddenly seems within reach

Simplexity : the simple rules of a complex world by Jeffrey Kluger( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Dutch and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, studies in fields such as economics, genetics, stock-market analysis and child development have hit on a new theory - 'Simplexity'. To put it simply, simple things can be more complicated than they seem, and complex things more simple. The evidence is before our eyes: in your elaborate network of household plumbing actually run on a very basic mechanism, or the crystal paperweight on your desk, spectacular in its complexity." "As Simplexity moves from the research lab into popular consciousness it will challenge our models for modern living. You'll never unknowingly whack the TV again, and you'll understand just how much it means to smile at your child. Popular science journalist Jeffrey Kluger translates cutting-edge theory into a history of everything. Simplexity is a reassessment of the building blocks of life and how they affect us all."--Jacket
