Really complicated books

Book awards are 10 a penny these days. The finalists for something called the Warwick Prize was announced yesterday. The winner gets £50,000. The prize features a different theme every year and the judges chose “complexity” for 2009.


Does anyone walk into a bookshop and say could you recommend a really good complex book? Does any search for complex books on the Internet? “Find me a book with a narrative so complicated that it will do my head in, please.”

In case you are a fan of really complicated books, the thrilling shortlist is Reinventing the Sacred by Stuart A. Kauffman, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism by Naomi Klein, The Rest is Noise by Alex Ross, Montano’s Malady by Enrique Vila-Matas, Mad Bad and Sad by Lisa Appignanesi, The Art of Political Murder: Who Killed Bishop Gerardi? by Francisco Goldman.

  9. 老眼というのは治療が難しいそうです。大勢の方々がそのように認識してることでしょう。しかし、この件は半分が本当のことで、50%はうそです。老眼は目の老化症状の1種になります。ですから、ある程度老化が進んでしまえば、それを健康に戻すことはとても困難でしょう。しかし、その悪化を遅らせたり、症状を解消させたり、40代であれば老眼そのものを予防したりということは、絶対困難ではないです。目も含め、私たちの肉体は日々老化していきます。けれど、適切なケアにより、それを少々抑えていけることが、多くの研究から明白になってきているのです。老眼は自身で治しえます。その時、みなさんにちゃんと頭に入れてほしいのが、全身で老化阻止の処置を取り組んでいくことです。その訳は、老眼は数々の生活習慣病と同様に、現在までの生活習慣がすごく影響しているから。仮に、食生活や睡眠、運動等々です。老化を防ぐ食べ物や生活習慣とかも多数ご紹介していきます。絶対、それらを実践し、身体全体から老眼を回復して下さい。
