So in the conjoined spirit of giving and getting, we're thrilled to offer a 35% discount on the following selection of books published by UPNE and our imprint ForeEdge this year.

To receive the discount, click on the book image or title and use discount code E114EW when placing your order on UPNE.com. The discount will extend through the end of the day, December 31, 2014.

The Science of Play: How to Build Playgrounds that Enhance Children's Development, by Susan G. Solomon

Poor design and wasted funding characterize today's American playgrounds.

The Science of Play is a clarion call to use playground design to deepen the American commitment to public space.

  1. I was wondering there are any good accounting books on sale too? One of my friends wants to learn accounting and our professor Aloke Ghosh told us that online you can get books pretty cheap at times.
