Microcosmos is a remarkable photo-journey into everyday life through spectacular microscopic images. This new edition lifts the book to breathtaking realms. The extraordinary images, produced with the latest microphotography technologies, are displayed on more readerfriendly larger page layouts. Most of the 205 full-colour photographs were taken using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), which allows us to see our world as never before. Each page features a single image, a remarkable close-up that reveals form, shape and colour in incredible detail. The book is divided into six chapters that cover: Microorganisms, Botany, The human body, Zoology, Minerals, Technology. Every photograph is accompanied by an informative caption that describes the image, how it was captured and the number of magnifications. With the stunning production values of its full-colour photographs and its clearly written text, Microcosmos provides a fascinating journey of discovery for every reader.

    The one serious problem I have encountered is that the "save" function is not reliable- it freezes regularly. I complained to Godaddy about this (having lost 60 mins work, having "saved" throughout), only to be politely told that I should have made a backup- frankly I was relying upon the "save" function actually saving! The backup function is not easily found. This need to leave the system and then come back to continue, once the frozen "save" function has unfrozen (you can't backup either in this frozen state) I have found to be a real time waster and very, very frustrating.

      You make a good point Р One of the benefit of using Craigslist is that you can request to meet the person and have them show you how everything works. Also this just gives you some assurance that you're getting what you pay for.

      I'm working on a new YA book right now for a 2010 publication, called FOR THE WIN, about economics and video games and labor.

    I stumbled on another interesting point. What I want to do is, build a website and create landing pages within the website (layout). So a page-url which is not visible but still clickable via a hyperlink in an email, newsletter or Adwords campaign. Its not totally clear to me if Squarspace or Jimdo provide this function. And if so is there a difference in performance/usability.
