Outside the Limelight (Ballet Theatre Chronicles Book 2) by Terez Mertes Rose (Classical Girl Press) 4.5 Stars (119 Reviews)    Price verified 2 minutes ago

Named a Best Book of 2017 by Kirkus Reviews Rising ballet star Dena Lindgren's dream career is knocked off its axis when a puzzling onstage fall results in a crushing diagnosis: a brain tumor. Complications from the extraction surgery kick off a long and difficult recovery, prompting the company's artistic director, Anders Gunst, to shift his attention to an overshadowed company dancer -- Dena's older sister, Rebecca, with whom Anders once shared a special relationship. Under the heady glow of Anders' attention, Rebecca thrives, even as her sister languishes. While Dena's strength returns, residual facial paralysis sidelines her indefinitely, amid a world that demands beauty and perfection. Rebecca soon faces a painful choice: play by the artistic director's rules and profit, or take shocking action to help her sister. Exposing the glamorous onstage world of professional ballet, as well as its shadowed wings and dark underbelly, OUTSIDE THE LIMELIGHT examines loyalty, beauty, artistic passion, and asks what might be worth losing in order to help the ones you love.

Dating and intimacy are fun, but how do we nurture love and romance long term? What if distance divides us from our sweetheart? What if our cultures clash? How does it feel to fall for a foreigner? Should we marry? How easy is it to raise globetrotting kids? Angela Nicoara's ground-breaking book 'Loving an Alien' is a timely reminder that love can conquer any differences.

Seth encounters a med student so arrogant he boasts that he'll eat any cadaver part he can't name, an instructor so dedicated she tests the student's ability to perform a gynecological exam on herself, and a woman so captivating that Seth will do whatever it takes to make her laugh, including regale her with a story about a diagnostic squabble over an erection.

Red Zone: Five Bloody Years in Baghdad (Blood and Treasure Book 2) by Oliver Poole (Reportage Press) 5.0 Stars (8 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

This eyewitness account reveals the truth about Baghdad's Red Zone during the American occupation, and describes the reality of daily life as the city descended into bloody civil war. How do you cheer on your national football team when you're terrified to step outside your front door? What's it like to go to the shops when your biggest fear is being blown up by a suicide bomber? Or risk being shot at a roadblock when you drive your pregnant wife to hospital? As the Daily Telegraph's Baghdad bureau chief, Oliver Poole first arrived in Iraq in 2003, crossing the Kuwait border in the bank of a US armoured vehicle. Once in Baghdad his home would become a hotel room in the middle of the city's Red Zone, one of the most dangerous places on earth. He tells how the war changed this young Englishman's life - and also the life of his interpreter Ahmed, whose relations were among those slaughtered and who ultimately had to flee Iraq - with Oliver's help - in a vehicle filled with his possessions and family. Oliver travelled with British and US troops, witnessed first-hand the bloody impact of car bombs and had his own offices destroyed by a suicide bomber. Finally in November 2006, with his newspaper closing down his office, he joined the masses escaping Iraq through Baghdad airport. This is the story of that war, and that city, during that time.

My statement that Descartes's famous saying "Cogito ergo sum", i.e. "I think, therefore I am" should be modified to "Sentio ergo sum", i.e. "I feel, therefore I am" will give a real headache only to a few philosophers.

The Last Man by Mary Shelley (E-BOOKARAMA) 3.3 Stars (166 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

Known widely as the author of "Frankenstein", Mary Shelley horrified us with her notorious monster brought to life with more humanity than we care to admit. Her later, lesser-known novel "The Last Man" (1826) explores similar thematic concerns, though from a vastly different perspective. The nightmarish story envisions the end of humanity from a ruthless and inescapable plague. Full of heart-wrenching loss, "The Last Man tests" the resilience of humanity, as well as its capacity for sorrow and grief. Of Shelley's literary works, "The Last Man" can be seen as the not only the most autobiographical, but also as a literary tribute and memorial to her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley , and Lord Byron amongst other members of her coterie. "The Last Man" is largely shaped by the events of Mary Shelley's life, and, to a lesser extent, by some of the historical events of Europe during the 1810's and early 1820's. Plot: The story is discovered, in 1818, in fragments buried in an ancient cave, rumoured to be the cave of the Sybils. The writings contain the recollections of a "past" history occurring well into the future. The writings have been left for future generations as a record of the devastating plague of the late twenty-first century. The narrator is Lionel Verney, age thirty-seven, who is, to his knowledge, the last surviving human on Earth. He has left this record in the year 2100, before setting out to sea...

Bike Bags by Jill Ireland 3.9 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified 24 hours ago

Sloane is 51 when her previously perfect life crumbles. The initial fissure is the assault of menopause, followed closely by her husband of 25 years leaving her, without explanation or preamble. It causes her to doubt her appeal as a woman as well as to reevaluate her entire life and self worth. She decides to take a bike tour of Austria, Slovenia, and the Chezch Republic to escape her misery, and instead of enlisting close friends and family to join in her adventure, she chooses to contact a random assortment of acquaintances. It is not only because she wants to leave any reminders of her old life behind, but if she should decide to stray beyond her formerly rigid boundaries of propriety, she did not necessarily need the blowback to follow her home. Not that she was planning orgies or drunken bacchanals, but still, she preferred to be free of expectations. When they converge on Vienna and she takes stock of the quirky misfits that she has assembled, none of whom know one another, she questions not only her selection process but the entire inspiration. After a rocky start the journey turns out to be full of revelations, friendships, conflicts and hilarity that entertains and alters them all. It is a comedic romp and an exploration of the follies and challenges of life. If you are offended by profanity this is not a book for you as it is liberally peppered with it.

Growing up in Seattle Washington, Mark was told from the nuns at Catholic school the Civil War was fought because of slavery. When Mark moved to Independence Missouri in the early 1970s, the teachers at public school told him the Civil War was fought to defend States' rights.

Mark tells us his story with raw emotion and humility. He openly admits that there are more questions than answers in his quest to understand the Civil War, but he never runs away from the truth.

Biodiversity of Angola: Science & Conservation: A Modern Synthesis by Brian J. Huntley (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 14 hours ago

This open access multi-authored book presents a 'state of the science' synthesis of knowledge on the biodiversity of Angola, based on sources in peer-reviewed journals, in books and where appropriate, unpublished official reports. The book identifies Angola as one of the most biologically diverse countries in Africa, but notes that its fauna, flora, habitats and the processes that drive the dynamics of its ecosystems are still very poorly researched and documented. This 'state of the science' synthesis is for the use of all students of Angola's biodiversity, and for those responsible for the planning, development and sustainable management of the country's living resources. The volume brings together the results of expeditions and research undertaken in Angola since the late eighteenth century, with emphasis on work conducted in the four decades since Angola's independence in 1975. The individual chapters have been written by leaders in their fields, and reviewed by peers familiar with the region.

Marginality: Addressing the Nexus of Poverty, Exclusion and Ecology by Joachim von Braun (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 14 hours ago

This book takes a new approach on understanding causes of extreme poverty and promising actions to address it. Its focus is on marginality being a root cause of poverty and deprivation. "Marginality" is the position of people on the edge, preventing their access to resources, freedom of choices, and the development of capabilities. The book is research based with original empirical analyses at local, national, and local scales; book contributors are leaders in their fields and have backgrounds in different disciplines. An important message of the book is that economic and ecological approaches and institutional innovations need to be integrated to overcome marginality. The book will be a valuable source for development scholars and students, actors that design public policies, and for social innovators in the private sector and non-governmental organizations.?

Elements of Robotics by Mordechai Ben-Ari (Springer) 4.4 Stars (69 Reviews)    Price verified 7 hours ago

This open access book bridges the gap between playing with robots in school and studying robotics at the upper undergraduate and graduate levels to prepare for careers in industry and research. Robotic algorithms are presented formally, but using only mathematics known by high-school and first-year college students, such as calculus, matrices and probability. Concepts and algorithms are explained through detailed diagrams and calculations. Elements of Robotics presents an overview of different types of robots and the components used to build robots, but focuses on robotic algorithms: simple algorithms like odometry and feedback control, as well as algorithms for advanced topics like localization, mapping, image processing, machine learning and swarm robotics. These algorithms are demonstrated in simplified contexts that enable detailed computations to be performed and feasible activities to be posed. Students who study these simplified demonstrations will be well prepared for advanced study of robotics. The algorithms are presented at a relatively abstract level, not tied to any specific robot. Instead a generic robot is defined that uses elements common to most educational robots: differential drive with two motors, proximity sensors and some method of displaying output to the user. The theory is supplemented with over 100 activities, most of which can be successfully implemented using inexpensive educational robots. Activities that require more computation can be programmed on a computer. Archives are available with suggested implementations for the Thymio robot and standalone programs in Python.

Fictions of Authority: Women Writers and Narrative Voice by Susan Sniader Lanser (Cornell University Press) 3.7 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

Drawing on narratological and feminist theory, Susan Sniader Lanser explores patterns of narration in a wide range of novels by women of England, France, and the United States from the 1740s to the present. She sheds light on the history of "voice" as a narrative strategy and as a means of attaining social power. She considers the dynamics in personal voice in authors such as Mary Shelley, Charlotte Brontë, Zora Neale Hurston, and Jamaica Kincaid. In writers who attempt a "communal voice" -- including Mary Wollstonecraft, Elizabeth Gaskell, Joan Chase, and Monique Wittig -- she finds innovative strategies that challenge the conventions of Western narrative.

The Annals of Petronius Jablonski: An Odyssey of Historic Proportions and Priceless Treasure of Philosophy by Petronius Jablonski (Chandelier Press) 3.1 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

When his classic Pontiac is abducted by a deity who lives in the depths of Lake Michigan, Petronius Jablonski is offered Enlightenment in compensation. To obtain it he must decipher the coded features of an odyssey. He neglects to share these minor details with his longsuffering girlfriend, Sandy, who accompanies him. Home-schooled by an eccentric father, Petronius holds the modern world in contempt, the demise of polytheism and eighteenth century English in general, the plague of democracy and "internets" in particular. Despairing of his ability to understand the journey and rarely paying attention, he engages the Reader's assistance. His propensity for digressions complicates the search for a solution while making a mockery of first person narration. He anticipates absurd questions and adds chapters in response, he accuses the Reader of being smitten with Sandy and makes her less attractive, and he revolutionizes Philosophy by superseding Occam's overrated Razor and Plato's much-ballyhooed Cave with the paradigm-shattering contributions of Petronius' Shovel, Petronius' Blender, Schadenfreude Before-the-Fact, Petronius' Garage, and Petronius' Wheelbarrow. As he subjects the Reader to increasingly demanding prerequisites it becomes clear he is wandering the remorseless hinterland between genius and madness, which raises questions about the accuracy of his chronicle. Sandy's terrified warning that he's behaving like his tragic father elicits rage: "What Cato did, and Addison approved, cannot be wrong." But is Petronius a victim of ancestral fate or wisdom? What if Truth is poison? Perhaps a 1969 Bonneville is more precious than "enlightenment."

Gender and Genre in the Folklore of Middle India (Myth and Poetics) by Joyce Burkhalter Flueckiger (Cornell University Press) 3.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 15 hours ago

In Gender and Genre in the Folklore of Middle India, Joyce Burkhalter Flueckiger analyzes six representative Indian folklore genres from a single regional repertoire to show the influence of their intertextual relations on the composition and interpretation of artistic performance. Placing special emphasis on women's rituals, she looks at the relationship between the framework and organization of indigenous genres and the reception of folklore performance. The regional repertoire under examination presents a strikingly female-centered world. Female performers and characters are active, articulate, and frequently challenge or defy expectations of gender. Men also confound traditional gender roles. Flueckiger includes the translations of two full performance texts of narratives sung by female and male storytellers respectively.

The Total Work of Art in European Modernism (Signale: Modern German Letters, Cultures, and Thought) by David Roberts (Cornell University Press and Cornell University Library) Price verified 15 hours ago

In this groundbreaking book David Roberts sets out to demonstrate the centrality of the total work of art to European modernism since the French Revolution. The total work of art is usually understood as the intention to reunite the arts into the one integrated whole, but it is also tied from the beginning to the desire to recover and renew the public function of art. The synthesis of the arts in the service of social and cultural regeneration was a particularly German dream, which made Wagner and Nietzsche the other center of aesthetic modernism alongside Baudelaire and Mallarmé. The history and theory of the total work of art pose a whole series of questions not only to aesthetic modernism and its utopias but also to the whole epoch from the French Revolution to the totalitarian revolutions of the twentieth century. The total work of art indicates the need to revisit key assumptions of modernism, such as the foregrounding of the autonomy and separation of the arts at the expense of the countertendencies to the reunion of the arts, and cuts across the neat equation of avant-gardism with progress and deconstructs the familiar left-right divide between revolution and reaction, the modern and the antimodern. Situated at the interface between art, religion, and politics, the total work of art invites us to rethink the relationship between art and religion and art and politics in European modernism. In a major departure from the existing literature David Roberts argues for twin lineages of the total work, a French revolutionary and a German aesthetic, which interrelate across the whole epoch of European modernism, culminating in the aesthetic and political radicalism of the avant-garde movements in response to the crisis of autonomous art and the accelerating political crisis of European societies from the 1890s forward.

UNDERDOG THINKING: A Bold Idea, a Business Adventure and 101 Lessons Learned Along the Way by Atul Vir 4.5 Stars (21 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

Underdog Thinking is real-life business adventure story that follows the journey of an Indian Immigrant to the U.S. who was told he "didn't know a damn thing about American business." But as opportunity would have it, a short time later he found himself an accidental entrepreneur with a front row ticket to the ins and outs of launching and growing a business. He was flying high on his growing success -- until a fateful moment when everything changed. As businesses rise and fall to the tune of supply and demand, sometimes the harshest betrayals come out of nowhere, when you least expect it -- as do the surprising sparks of hope. When an unforeseen circumstance initiates a chain of events that leave him at a crossroads he must make the tough call: to give in and give up, or push through and win. CEO, business ethics thought leader, speaker and author Atul Vir has lived that story. And even in the darkest moments when failure seemed most imminent, he drew on the work ethic instilled from his earliest days, and his commitment to do right by his customers -- to bring his dream up from the ashes and back to life. In his new book, Underdog Thinking, Vir inspires readers to face any challenge that comes their way -- with practical business lessons for every step of the journey gleaned from his experience as both an immigrant building a business and as CEO of Equator Appliances for more than 25 years. The book dives into current themes dominating the business landscape, including: global business, overcoming failure, bootstrapping, securing financing, immigration and what innovation truly means. While many people offer sage advice on these topics, Vir's lessons are paired with a unique, captivating story and more than two decades of entrepreneurial expertise in an industry dominated by much bigger players -- major multinational corporations.

Arresting Grace by Michael Joel Green 3.7 Stars (54 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

Michael Green expected many things from his 38th year: to redeem a failed acting/music/writing career, to build upon friendships and church relationships, and most of all, to finally meet someone. He'd been looking -- and waiting -- a long time. What he didn't expect was to get arrested for a DUI, driving home from a church dinner. That changed everything. It was a shame, too. Two weeks earlier, he had met someone. ARRESTING GRACE is the story of Michael Green's DUI arrest, as well as his long distance relationship with Jessie, a woman from the Bay Area. Thoughtfully written, with unflinching honesty, Arresting Grace recalls such works as Donald Miller's BLUE LIKE JAZZ and Anne LaMott's GRACE (EVENTUALLY). A man searches for answers most earnestly when he's brought low. This is the story of a man, fallen lower than imaginable, searching for God in the midst... and finding grace in the most unexpected places.

Care in Healthcare: Reflections on Theory and Practice by Franziska Krause (Palgrave Macmillan) 5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This book examines the concept of care and care practices in healthcare from the interdisciplinary perspectives of continental philosophy, care ethics, the social sciences, and anthropology. Areas addressed include dementia care, midwifery, diabetes care, psychiatry, and reproductive medicine. Special attention is paid to ambivalences and tensions within both the concept of care and care practices. Contributions in the first section of the book explore phenomenological and hermeneutic approaches to care and reveal historical precursors to care ethics. Empirical case studies and reflections on care in institutionalised and standardised settings form the second section of the book. The concluding chapter, jointly written by many of the contributors, points at recurring challenges of understanding and practicing care that open up the field for further research and discussion. This collection will be of great value to scholars and practitioners of medicine, ethics, philosophy, social science and history.

Subject-Oriented Business Process Management by Albert Fleischmann (Springer) 3.1 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

Activities performed in organizations are coordinated via communication between the people involved. The sentences used to communicate are naturally structured by subject, verb, and object. The subject describes the actor, the verb the action and the object what is affected by the action. Subject-oriented Business Process Management (S-BPM) as presented in this book is based on this simple structure which enables process-oriented thinking and process modeling. S-BPM puts the subject of a process at the center of attention and thus deals with business processes and their organizational environment from a new perspective, meeting organizational requirements in a much better way than traditional approaches. Subjects represent agents of an action in a process, which can be either technical or human (e.g. a thread in an IT system or a clerk). A process structures the actions of each subject and coordinates the required communication among the subjects. S-BPM provides a coherent procedural framework to model and analyze business processes: its focus is the cooperation of all stakeholders involved in the strategic, tactical, and operational issues, sharing their knowledge in a networked structure. The authors illustrate how each modeling activity through the whole development lifecycle can be supported through the use of appropriate software tools. The presentation style focuses on professionals in industry, and on students specializing in process management or organizational modeling. Each chapter begins with a summary of key findings and is full of examples, hints, and possible pitfalls. An interpreter model, a toolbox, and a glossary summarizing the main terms complete the book.

A Tramp Abroad by Mark Twain (E-BOOKARAMA) 3.9 Stars (152 Reviews)    Price verified one day ago

In "A Tramp Abroad", Mark Twain's unofficial sequel to "The Innocents Abroad", the author records his hilarious and diverse observations and insights while on a fifteen-month walking trip through Central Europe and the Alps. "A Tramp Abroad" is a work of non-fiction travel literature by American author Mark Twain, published in 1880. The book details a journey by the author, with his friend Harris (a character created for the book, and based on his closest friend, Joseph Twichell), through central and southern Europe. While the stated goal of the journey is to walk most of the way, the men find themselves using other forms of transport as they traverse the continent. As the two men make their way through Germany, the Alps, and Italy, they encounter situations made all the more humorous by their reactions to them. The narrator (Twain) plays the part of the American tourist of the time, believing that he understands all that he sees, but in reality understanding none of it.

Job Seeker's Faithful Guide by Charles Caro 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 7 hours ago

There are many books written detailing the job search process covering everything from skills assessments and resume writing to interviewing and salary negotiations, but there is nothing available for the job seeker looking for something to sustain themselves mentally and spiritually. Being unable to sustain themselves mentally and spiritually many job seekers soon grow weary of the daunting job search journey and simply quit looking before they reach their goal. The "Job Seeker's Faithful Guide" targets everybody involved in a career transition regardless whether they are unemployed, underemployed, seeking a new opportunity or launching a new business on their own. In fact, anyone in career transition is a job seeker. One of the most difficult tasks a job seeker faces is how to sustain the mental and spiritual strength to make it through the complete journey. When a job seeker's mental and spiritual strength wanes the chances for success in the job search are drastically reduced, and finally the job seeker simply abandons the job search. The "Job Seeker's Faithful Guide" provides a resource for anybody in career transition regardless of where they are along their job search journey. The "Job Seeker's Faithful Guide" is faith-based, but it is meant to be non-denominational. In fact, the scripture references provide inspirational meaning for anybody of any faith as they work their way through the job search process and journey. The "Job Seeker's Faithful Guide" is organized as a series of sixty-six (66) "Reflections" (Chapters). The chapters are arranged in the order the individual "Reflections" were originally presented to members of the "In Between Jobs Support Group", which an outreach ministry of the St. Paul Roman Catholic Church located in Tampa, FL. The individual "Reflections" can be read and studied in any order without detracting from the value of the full content of the book. The book includes three (3) indexes at the end of the book as ...

Chinese Characters with Associations: Easily Memorize 300 Chinese Characters through Pictures (HSK Level 2) by Lusine Torosyan 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 14 hours ago

Some Chinese characters are very simple and are made of just a few strokes, while others are made of other simpler characters, which are called radicals. Radicals are simple characters that combine to create compound Chinese characters. They have various meanings and can usually help you to understand the meaning and the pronunciation of compound characters. There are around 200 radicals in the Chinese language; therefore some people compare those radicals with letters or the roots of words. This book focuses on the above-mentioned idea. Here, all the characters are broken into radicals to help you perceive Chinese characters as logical compounds, each representing a part of Chinese history, culture, and philosophy. The book will also show you how each character is used in sentences and phrases. Some characters come along with short grammatical explanations and cultural facts. Most of the character associations in this book have no etymological value, that is, they do not show how the character originated. The associations are made by the author for the sole purpose of remembering how to write the characters. This book is for you if: • You decided to learn Modern Standard Chinese, called "Mandarin" or Put?nghuà. • You want to start learning Chinese simplified characters. • You want to pass HSK Level 2, or you want to start learning in a fun way. • Having the HSK Level 2 vocabulary list, without any explanations, visualizations and grammar points is not enough for you. • You have Visual Memory, so it is easier for you to remember something with visualizations, associations, and games. • You love to have fun while learning! Write Chinese Characters with Associations" is enough if you want to pass the HSK Level 2 exam, but it is advisable that you also use the "New Practical Chinese Reader"-s, which you can find online or in your local Confucius Institute office. Also, each dialogue of that book is recorded by native speakers, and you can find ...
