Description: We live each day completely unaware of the person next to us and what events have helped shape that person’s life. Each one of us over time begin to carve out our individual pathways and this path then becomes our life. The Author of this book decided to share some of his greatest mistakes and successes throughout his life so far. Some of his journeys took him around the world and found him in hot water on numerous occasions. His journeys through life have not always been a smooth road by any means. He has made plenty of mistakes and freely admits his shortfalls in the book and decided to share some of the highs and lows of the path he has travelled down. Some of the tales he shares will bring a smile to your face, a gasp and even a tear or two perhaps. They are simply events that happened to him and the stories share how he had to respond as a simple human being making his way through life when faced with personal challenges. He is a well-worn man who learned a lot the hard way and yet its those very rough roads that help create the writer who now shares his life with you throughout these pages. “If someone can avoid one of the mistakes I have made by reading where I went wrong or feels the confidence to rush in and help because they read a story where things went right then the stories I share have all been worthwhile”. ~Luke Way~

Description: In the tradition of The Glass Castle and Angela’s Ashes comes the most unforgettable memoir you’ll read this year! “What did it mean to be the Tank Man’s son? To grow up overwhelmed by my father’s presence and personality? It was as if I didn’t exist, as if I was just something else for my father to crush.” So begins the haunting memoir of Mark Bouman as he recounts the events of his childhood at the hands of his larger-than-life, Neo-Nazi father in brilliant, startling detail. From adventure-filled days complete with real-life war games, artillery fire, and tank races to terror-filled nights marked by vicious tirades, brutal beatings, and psychological torture, Mark paints a chilling portrait of family life that is at once whimsical and horrific—all building to a shocking climax that challenges even the broadest boundaries of love and forgiveness. An epic tale of redemption and reconciliation, The Tank Man’s Son is a literary tour de force that is sure to become an instant classic.

Description: 2017 marks Chimanlal Nagindas Gandhi’s 80th birth year, and coincides with the 150th birthday of the nation of Canada where he currently lives. To commemorate both occasions, Gandhi has written ‘ I Did It My Ways',* by Chiman Gandhi a book that explores the journey of a young man leaving India for the west. Gandhi previously authored a book called Healigion addressing the good influences of world religions but condemning the blind faith that results in violent conflict and most wars. This new book is a biography, where the reader sees glimpses of Gandhi’s philosophies about treating people, raising children and particularly in his analysis of religious impact. Gandhi shares many of his views about the Hindu religion and measures religious doctrine against faith. He addresses the hierarchy of the Hindu Caste System with questions like: • Why was India easily conquered first by the Muslims and then by Europeans? • Does the theory of Karma (and other religious rituals prevalent in Hindu customs) result in an unjust society? • Has the price of Ahimsa been a Hindu society that is cowardly? • Will Hinduism become a minority faith in India based on current assymetric demographic trends? This question uses the scholarly investigation charted by Dr. J.K. Bajaj Gandhi’s inquiry of these important topics results in the reader questioning religious ritual and a hope that it ends in a clearer understanding of one’s own religious beliefs.

Description: A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice "A grounded and expansive examination of the American economic divide . . . It takes a skillful journalist to weave data and anecdotes together so effectively." —Carolyn Kellogg, Los Angeles Times An award-winning journalist investigates Amazon’s impact on the wealth and poverty of towns and cities across the United States. In 1937, the famed writer and activist Upton Sinclair published a novel bearing the subtitle A Story of Ford-America. He blasted the callousness of a company worth “a billion dollars” that underpaid its workers while forcing them to engage in repetitive and sometimes dangerous assembly line labor. Eighty-three years later, the market capitalization of Amazon.com has exceeded one trillion dollars, while the value of the Ford Motor Company hovers around thirty billion. We have, it seems, entered the age of one-click America—and as the coronavirus makes Americans more dependent on online shopping, its sway will only intensify. Alec MacGillis’s Fulfillment is not another inside account or exposé of our most conspicuously dominant company. Rather, it is a literary investigation of the America that falls within that company’s growing shadow. As MacGillis shows, Amazon’s sprawling network of delivery hubs, data centers, and corporate campuses epitomizes a land where winner and loser cities and regions are drifting steadily apart, the civic fabric is unraveling, and work has become increasingly rudimentary and isolated. Ranging across the country, MacGillis tells the stories of those who’ve thrived and struggled to thrive in this rapidly changing environment. In Seattle, high-paid workers in new office towers displace a historic black neighborhood. In suburban Virginia, homeowners try to protect their neighborhood from the environmental impact of a new data center. Meanwhile, in El Paso, small office supply firms seek to weather Amazon’s takeover of government procurement, and in Baltimore a warehouse supplants a fabled steel plant. Fulfillment also shows how Amazon has become a force in Washington, D.C., ushering readers through a revolving door for lobbyists and government contractors and into CEO Jeff Bezos’s lavish Kalorama mansion. With empathy and breadth, MacGillis demonstrates the hidden human costs of the other inequality—not the growing gap between rich and poor, but the gap between the country’s winning and losing regions. The result is an intimate account of contemporary capitalism: its drive to innovate, its dark, pitiless magic, its remaking of America with every click.

Description: From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men series comes an irresistible and suspenseful romance between a doctor who plays by the rules and the outlaw who breaks them in order to protect her. Dr. Presley Baskin has always lived a quiet, calm life. Unfortunately, nothing about her life in Loveless, Texas -- especially not the wild, rowdy, and impossibly close-knit Lawton family who've claimed her -- is quiet or calm. Which is how loner Presley finds herself roped into patching up local bad boy Shot Caldwell against her better judgment. Presley wants nothing to do with the dangerous, brooding leader of the local outlaw motorcycle club. But when someone starts stalking her, Shot is the only person she trusts to help. Plus he owes her one . . . Palmer 'Shot' Caldwell has always known his life isn't made for relationships. At least until shy, secretive, Presley reluctantly pulled a bullet out of him. He's oddly protective of the pretty doctor, so when she comes to him for help, hard-hearted Shot suddenly realizes there's nothing he wouldn't do to keep her safe.

Description: A Booklist Best Literary Travel Book (2017) and Kirkus Reviews Best Nonfiction Book (2016) “A penetrating study of human character in a challenging environment. . . . [David Welky’s] seamless narrative, chilling at times and always thought-provoking, transports the reader to a time when the Arctic was virtually as harsh and inaccessible a place as the Moon or Mars.” —Natural History From a snow-swept hill in the ice fields northwest of Greenland, famed Arctic explorer Robert E. Peary spots a line of mysterious peaks dotting the horizon. In 1906, he names that distant, uncharted territory “Crocker Land.” Years later, two of Peary’s disciples, George Borup and Donald MacMillan, take the brave steps Peary never did: with a team of amateur adventurers and intrepid native guides, they endeavor to reach this unknown land and fill in the last blank space on the globe. What follows is hardship and mishap the likes of which none of the explorers could possibly have imagined. From howling blizzards and desperate food shortages to crime and tragedy, the explorers experience a remarkable journey of endurance, courage, and hope. Set in one of the world’s most inhospitable places, A Wretched and Precarious Situation is an Arctic tale unlike any other.

Description: Speed in acquiring the knowledge and skills to perform tasks is crucial. Yet, it still ordinarily takes many years to achieve high proficiency in countless jobs and professions, in government, business, industry, and throughout the private sector. There would be great advantages if regimens of training could be established that could accelerate the achievement of high levels of proficiency. This book discusses the construct of ‘accelerated learning.’ It includes a review of the research literature on learning acquisition and retention, focus on establishing what works, and why. This includes several demonstrations of accelerated learning, with specific ideas, plans and roadmaps for doing so. The impetus for the book was a tasking from the Defense Science and Technology Advisory Group, which is the top level Science and Technology policy-making panel in the Department of Defense. However, the book uses both military and non-military exemplar case studies. It is likely that methods for acceleration will leverage technologies and capabilities including virtual training, cross-training, training across strategic and tactical levels, and training for resilience and adaptivity. This volume provides a wealth of information and guidance for those interested in the concept or phenomenon of "accelerating learning"— in education, training, psychology, academia in general, government, military, or industry.

Description: This book examines the dynamics of infrastructure development in Northeast India especially Manipur from a socio-anthropological perspective. It looks at the pattern and distribution of infrastructure in the region to analyse the impact of education, roads and healthcare on the livelihoods, ecosystems, governance, and social futures of communities. The volume examines the infrastructure deficit in the conflict-ridden state of Manipur, focusing especially on electricity and roads. The author shows how problems arising from poor infrastructure are further complicated on account of corruption, insurgency, ethnic unrest and the politics of marginalization. Looking at the discourse around development in the Northeast, the volume also highlights the structural inequality in Manipur and other states. It further shows how infrastructure development can become a means for enabling trade, creating markets, diluting boundaries between varied ethnic groups and connecting people. This book will be useful for researchers and scholars of development studies, economics, social anthropology, sociology and public policy; particularly those interested in India’s Northeast.

Description: Riding the Rim is one man’s response to the catastrophic events in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. The wetlands had been disappearing at an ever-increasing rate over fifty years. America’s demand for oil combined with a mismanaged levee system had finally dealt a mortal blow to the defenses of New Orleans. The city lay open to the wrath of a 20 foot wall of tidal surge. We could not let this happen again. Little was being done. It was important that someone step up. Someone did. The audacious idea was that a guy on a motorcycle, traveling 16,500 miles around the perimeter of the United States, talking about coastal erosion just might call attention to the issue. If this rider was also a trained public speaker with a passion for his message, perhaps he could be the catalyst needed to raise awareness in the rest of the country. There was no way to predict success. There was risk as well as reward. The author took the risk and discovered a nation genuinely concerned for New Orleans but with little understanding of the importance of the wetlands to the country’s economy and security. The wetlands are still endangered, but one man stepped up and made his voice heard. This is his story. “While many serve the cause of saving America’s WETLAND, Terry Forrette takes his show on the road, mile by mile enlisting supporters. These personal and sincere acts of advocacy are seldom recognized in a time of media hype, but they are the backbone of our efforts to show that America cannot not afford to lose coastal Louisiana.” Valsin A.

Description: Systemic change from a planned economy to a market society requires not only an implementation of market institutions but also actions of people according to the new conditions in everyday-life. The book focuses on the question how far middle-class households are able to organize their livelihoods. Do they take the necessary self-responsibility for their lives? Or do they still rely on the Soviet-type nanny state of the past? Or, do they only believe in their own networks of kin and acquaintances for earning their livelihoods? The book presents a cross-country, rural-urban comparison in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan based on secondary data and quantitative and qualitative primary research. Eckhard Dittrich is professor emeritus of macro sociology at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany. Heiko Schrader is professor of macro sociology, sociology of development and transformation at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany.
