A superb resource for writers that packs an extraordinary amount of information in a convenient, affordable paperback format, this second edition of the Pocket Oxford American Thesaurus features a new text with more than 15,000 main entries and more than 350,000 synonyms and antonyms, with sample sentences or phrases for virtually every sense. The new edition makes it easy to find the perfect word, with Oxford's unique arrangement of core senses and subsenses. We draw on the latest evidence from the Oxford English Corpus--a vast database of more than two billion words--to uncover the most common and most important meanings of words and phrases in contemporary American English. We then use these findings to organize the entries in the thesaurus, listing synonyms in order of frequency of use, so that the first choice you see is probably the one you need, and preventing you from inadvertently picking a word that is not in common use. In addition, virtually every sense includes a sample sentence drawn from the Corpus, revealing how the words are used in actual speech. And finally, the thesaurus now boasts a completely new page layout, with a more open and accessible design, with an emphasis on readability. Portable, affordable, reliable, this revolutionary new resource stands on the shoulders of the colossal Oxford English Corpus, providing readers with the clearest vision of American English as it exists today. No other thesaurus on the market has anything like this authority behind it. It is the first choice for writers on the go and for anyone who wants to select words accurately and with confidence.

You can set your watch to it: As soon as Apple comes out with another version of Mac OS X, David Pogue hits the streets with another meticulous Missing Manual to cover it with a wealth of detail. The new Mac OS X 10.4, better known as Tiger, is faster than its predecessors, but nothing's too fast for Pogue and Mac OS X: The Missing Manual. There are many reasons why this is the most popular computer book of all time. With its hallmark objectivity, the Tiger Edition thoroughly explores the latest features to grace the Mac OS. Which ones work well and which do not? What should you look for? This book tackles Spotlight, an enhanced search feature that helps you find anything on your computer; iChat AV for videoconferencing; Automator for automating repetitive, manual or batch tasks; and the hundreds of smaller tweaks and changes, good and bad, that Apple's marketing never bothers to mention. Mac OS X: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition is the authoritative book that's ideal for every user, including people coming to the Mac for the first time. Our guide offers an ideal introduction that demystifies the Dock, the unfamiliar Mac OS X folder structure, and the entirely new Mail application. There are also mini-manuals on iLife applications such as iMovie, iDVD, and iPhoto, those much-heralded digital media programs, and a tutorial for Safari, Mac's own web browser. And plenty more: learn to configure Mac OS X using the System Preferences application, keep your Mac secure with FileVault, and learn about Tiger's enhanced Firewall capabilities. If you're so inclined, this Missing Manual also offers an easy introduction to the Terminal application for issuing basic Unix commands. There's something new on practically every page, and David Pogue brings his celebrated wit and expertise to every one of them. Mac's brought a new cat to town and we have a great new way to tame it.

Der letzte Roman von David Foster Wallace, dem »Besten seiner Generation« In seinem letzten, posthum erschienenen Roman vollbringt David Foster Wallace das Kunststück, auf gar nicht langweilige Weise über den langweiligsten Arbeitsplatz der Welt zu schreiben: die amerikanische Steuerbehörde.Mit der ihm eigenen sprachlichen Brillanz nähert sich David Foster Wallace in diesem nachgelassenen Roman seinem Thema: Was macht strukturelle Langeweile aus einem Menschen? Als Claude Sylvanshine nach Peoria in Illinois an die IRS, die amerikanische Bundessteuerbehörde, versetzt wird, trifft er dort auf Kollegen, die mit der tagtäglichen, unüberwindbaren Monotonie ihrer Arbeit und somit ihres Lebens kämpfen. Welche Lebensgeschichten führten dazu, dass jemand mehr oder weniger freiwillig einen solchen Beruf ergreift?Der Roman erschien in den USA drei Jahre nach Wallace’ Tod und wurde zum gefeierten Bestseller. In ihm zeigt David Foster Wallace noch einmal sein ganzes Können – die unübertroffene Originalität seiner Sujets, die sprachliche Präzision, der sezierende Blick auf die Unzulänglichkeiten menschlicher Gesellschaft und der immer präsente Humor. »Atemberaubend brillant, lustig, unerträglich und elegisch« The New York Times
