• Il est l'un des plus grands chanteurs de sa génération. Et la preuve que le talent finit toujours par payer.
    Ed Sheeran a décidé de devenir chanteur-auteur-compositeur à l'âge de treize ans, alors qu'il jouait de la guitare dans un groupe de rock de son collège. À l'époque, il savait à peine chanter et n'avait jamais écrit de chanson. Un an plus tard, il avait enregistré son tout premier album, seul dans sa chambre.
    Comment cet adolescent autrefois timide et bègue est-il devenu le phénomène mondial et le showman que l'on connaît aujourd'hui  ? À travers ses recherches et ses interviews, Sean Smith, spécialiste des stars de la chanson, retrace l'histoire d'Ed et de ses parents dévoués qui ont toujours encouragé et soutenu leur fils. De ses premiers concerts dans la rue à sa rencontre avec Taylor Swift - qui a tout changé - en passant par la société de gestion d'Elton John et le contrat avec sa première maison de disques, découvrez l'incroyable histoire de ce garçon comme tout le monde mais qui ne ressemble à personne.
    À propos de l'auteur 
    Présenté par le grand quotidien britannique The Independent comme un chroniqueur intrépide et un enquêteur méticuleux, Sean SMITH est le biographe le plus en vue du Royaume-Uni. Traduits dans le monde entier, ses livres dévoilent l'intimité de grandes icônes telles que Adele, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake ou encore Jennifer Aniston en veillant toujours à montrer l'être humain qui se cache derrière la star.
     

  • Molecular modeling techniques have been widely used in drug discovery fields for rational drug design and compound screening. Now these techniques  are used to model or mimic the behavior of molecules, and help us study formulation at the molecular level. Computational pharmaceutics enables us to understand the mechanism of drug delivery, and to develop new drug delivery systems. The book discusses the modeling of different drug delivery systems, including cyclodextrins, solid dispersions, polymorphism prediction, dendrimer-based delivery systems, surfactant-based micelle, polymeric drug delivery systems, liposome, protein/peptide formulations, non-viral gene delivery systems, drug-protein binding, silica nanoparticles, carbon nanotube-based drug delivery systems, diamond nanoparticles and layered double hydroxides (LDHs) drug delivery systems. Although there are a number of existing books about rational drug design with molecular modeling techniques, these techniques still look mysterious and daunting for pharmaceutical scientists. This book fills the gap between pharmaceutics and molecular modeling, and presents a systematic and overall introduction to computational pharmaceutics. It covers all introductory, advanced and specialist levels. It provides a totally different perspective to pharmaceutical scientists, and will greatly facilitate the development of pharmaceutics. It also helps computational chemists to look for the important questions in the drug delivery field. This book is included in the Advances in Pharmaceutical Technology book series.

  • Blockchain technology and artificial intelligence (AI) have the potential to transform how the accounting and financial services industries engage with the business, stakeholder and consumer communities. Presenting a blend of technical analysis with current and future applications, this book provides professionals with an action plan to embrace and move forward with these new technologies in financial and accounting organizations. It is written in a conversational style that is unbiased and objective, replacing jargon and technical details with real world case examples.

  • This book addresses the considerations and factors that accounting professionals should take into account when pivoting from practice to higher education, think tanks, or other non-practitioner roles. Breaking down this transition, the book addresses issues connected to the types of job opportunities, where and when these opportunities might arise, and how any practitioner can reimagine their professional persona. Crafted from a first-hand perspective, the advice and anecdotes included throughout the book add a tangible and real-world feel to the concepts and ideas discussed in this book.
