At Nova Publishers, many of our books are sold on the Amazon website. Talking to them on the phone is not a thrill but you learn to adapt. Amazon is one of the biggest players in the Publishing field and for Nova Science Publishers, they are an important third-party seller.
Many Nova authors and readers ask us to make our eBooks adaptable to all the different digital devices available today. But we have found that due to the complexity of our books, most people do not read our Titles on mobile devices (although they look our Company up on Google and other Search Engines on their mobile devices all the time). Most people still prefer our print books. For libraries however, due to budget cuts, this is changing.
What NOVA Publishers is currently working on: To give our readers and our consumers and excellent NOVA experience, it is important to have an excellent website. Nowadays, this entails Publishers’ creating an ecommerce website, of which we do not have currently. This is important in order for the Publisher to connect directly with the consumer on a daily basis.
New Titles expected to be released this week by NOVA Publishers include:
May Monthly Observances: Nova Science Publishers will be posting daily about our books on the following subjects on our social media sites so stay tuned!
Review: This week, we received a fantastic review for a new 2016 book entitled The Evolving Human Primate: An Exploration through the Natural and Social Sciences by Donald Sharpes (Emeritus College, Arizona State University, Senior Visiting Fellow, Cambridge University). The review reads as follows and additional endorsements are posted on the Nova Science Publisher Website:
This book by Donald Sharpes is an engaging discussion of the evolutionary development of the human species. Clearly written, it provides both technical and anecdotal details, enlivening scientific findings with the author’s reflections. The first three chapters present information on the origins of life on this planet, the manner in which life developed through evolution governed by the process of natural selection, and the drive to perpetuate the life of each species, as well as threats to survival, such as, among humans, over population and famine. The remaining seven chapters cover, relying on both the physical and social sciences, various ways in which humans conduct their lives, individually and socially, with a final discussion of their negative impact on their physical environment.
I found especially engaging the author’s discussion of politics, economics, and our threat to the physical world we live in. In chapter seven, The Economic Imperative, he argues that our primate urges to acquire goods and to survive have led to massive inequalities, resulting in ever increasing vulnerability among a majority of people, and extreme wealth among a corporate few. In chapter eight, Government As Imperative, he argues that today in the United States “We are mired in a political dogmatism that rivals religious fundamentalism as a national characteristic” (p.145). This political intransigence is derived, in the author’s view, from a lingering conflict between North and South which yields major social and political defects. And in chapter ten, Weathering Climate Change, he argues that “population explosion and the effects of climate change on the environment,” caused by human actions, “form a scourge that could mean the slow eradication of organic species, including humans” (p. 163).
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about our biological origins, their influence on our lives, and our chances of improving our lives or destroying them.
