With enthusiasm and wry wit, author Jones takes you step by step through the rudiments of the Western World's first great language--the medium of Plato and the New Testament. Introduces the Greek alphabet, explains each grammar point in layman's terms, gives plenty of study hints, provides answers for the exercises, and even presents a "to-do" list at the end of most chapters. Not too far into the book you'll already be reading masterful Greek literature, in extracts chosen from such authors as Plato, Sophocles, and Thucydides. Offers a discussion of Greek history and culture in each chapter, and another feature that looks closely at Greek words, with special emphasis on related words in English.--From publisher description.

Proust and the Squid

The Story and Science of the Reading Brain

"Human beings were never born to read," writes Tufts University cognitive neuroscientist and child development expert Maryanne Wolf. Reading is a human invention that reflects how the brain rearranges itself to learn something new. In this ambitious, provocative book, Wolf chronicles the remarkable journey of the reading brain not only over the past five thousand years, since writing began, but also over the course of a single child's life, showing in the process why children with dyslexia have reading difficulties and singular gifts. Lively, erudite, and rich with examples, Proust and the Squid asserts that the brain that examined the tiny clay tablets of the Sumerians was a very different brain from the one that is immersed in today's technology-driven literacy. The potential transformations in this changed reading brain, Wolf argues, have profound implications for every child and for the intellectual development of our species.
