What is a toddler trying to say by touching his ears or tilting his head? Dr David Lewis pioneered the study of how young children communicate with each other using gestures and facial expressions and his detailed research explains how toddlers can already communicate before they learn to speak. The Secret Language of Your Child explains the facial and body expressions of the under-fives, helping parents to understand what their child is trying to communicate and to recognise when a child is feeling anxious, aggressive or distressed. Using a wealth of illustrations that interpret the secret language of your child, David Lewis reveals how to communicate with a child during its formative years. Learn how to understand your child and how to reply in the same language. The Secret Language of Your Child is an essential handbook for all new parents, carers and nursery staff in its revelations of the body language and the behaviour of the under-fives. It will make every reader look at under-fives in an entirely different way.

Some things about babies, happily, will never change. They still arrive warm, cuddly, soft, and smelling impossibly sweet. But how moms and dads care for their brand-new bundles of baby joy has changed—and now, so has the new-baby bible.

Announcing the completely revised third edition of What to Expect the First Year. With over 10.5 million copies in print, First Year is the world’s best-selling, best-loved guide to the instructions that babies don’t come with, but should. And now, it’s better than ever. Every parent’s must-have/go-to is completely updated.

Keeping the trademark month-by-month format that allows parents to take the potentially overwhelming first year one step at a time, First Year is easier-to-read, faster-to-flip-through, and new-family-friendlier than ever—packed with even more practical tips, realistic advice, and relatable, accessible information than before. Illustrations are new, too.

Among the changes: Baby care fundamentals—crib and sleep safety, feeding, vitamin supplements—are revised to reflect the most recent guidelines. Breastfeeding gets more coverage, too, from getting started to keeping it going. Hot-button topics and trends are tackled: attachment parenting, sleep training, early potty learning (elimination communication), baby-led weaning, and green parenting (from cloth diapers to non-toxic furniture). An all-new chapter on buying for baby helps parents navigate through today’s dizzying gamut of baby products, nursery items, and gear. Also new: tips on preparing homemade baby food, the latest recommendations on starting solids, research on the impact of screen time (TVs, tablets, apps, computers), and “For Parents” boxes that focus on mom’s and dad’s needs. Throughout, topics are organized more intuitively than ever, for the best user experience possible.
 Operational Test is the science behind the designer’s dreamThe operational commander of the Task Force want to know how his Typhoons will fare against the air threat in the operational test range: call in the operational evaluatorsWhat is an operational test range? The reality can be stranger than fictionOur correspondent reports that a Hercules transport survived an engagement from a shoulder-launched surface-to-air missile in Iraq yesterday. Find out the reality behind the headline


The process to deliver a combat aircraft from concept to service is measured in decades. Described as a weapon system, designs such as the Eurofighter Typhoon are intricate jigsaws of new techniques and emerging technologies. By the time a new weapons system reaches the frontline, it will have been tested by the manufacturer, evaluated by test pilots and assessed by service pilots. There have been examples of success, but some spectacular failures with projects cancelled late in development.

Operational Test: Honing the Edge investigates why and takes the reader from the original requirement through complex testing and evaluation process showing recent examples of the path to declaring a new combat aircraft operational. It will look at how today’s test organisations have matured to meet the task and investigate the pressures they face. It also studies real-life examples of systems testing. David Gledhill and David Lewis, both experienced test evaluators, uncover the reasons why some aircraft serve on the frontline for years before becoming truly effective in their role.
