Summary

“The 2013 edition . . . includes four articles on significant ships, respectively; French Navy, US Coast Guard, German Navy and Indian Navy.”—Firetrench Reviews   Launched in 2009, this annual has rapidly established a reputation as an authoritative but affordable summary of all that has happened in the naval world in the previous twelve months. It combines the standing features of regional surveys with one-off major articles on noteworthy new ships and other important developments. Besides the latest warship projects, it also looks at wider issues of importance to navies, such as aviation and electronics, and calls on expertise from around the globe to give a balanced picture of what is going on and to interpret its significance.   Special features for the 2013 edition include in-depth studies of the navies of Italy and Ireland, plus analyses of significant new warship classes: the French Aquitaine class frigates, Indian Shivalik class Project 17 frigates, German Braunschweig class corvettes, and US Bertholf class national security cutters.   Intended to make interesting reading as well as providing authoritative reference, there is a strong visual emphasis, including specially commissioned drawings and the most recently released photographs and artists’ impressions.   This annual has become “a must for those wishing to keep up with world naval affairs” (Scuttlebutt).
Available since: 10/31/2015.

    The dramatic story of one man's recovery offers new hope to those suffering from concussions and other brain traumas. 
     
    In 1999, Clark Elliott suffered a concussion when his car was rear-ended. Overnight his life changed from that of a rising professor with a research career in artificial intelligence to a humbled man struggling to get through a single day. At times he couldn't walk across a room, or even name his five children. Doctors told him he would never fully recover. After eight years, the cognitive demands of his job, and of being a single parent, finally became more than he could manage. As a result of one final effort to recover, he crossed paths with two brilliant Chicago-area research-clinicians-one a specialized optometrist, the other a cognitive psychologist-working on the leading edge of brain plasticity. He was substantially improved within weeks. 
     
    Remarkably, Elliott kept detailed notes throughout his experience, from the moment of impact to the final stages of his recovery, astounding documentation that is the basis of this fascinating audiobook. The Ghost in My Brain gives hope to the millions who suffer from head injuries each year, and provides a unique and informative window into the world's most complex computational device: the human brain.

    Software Engineering Fundamentals is distinctive in its reportage of such subject matters as real-time software design, software metrics, reliability, planning, testing and integration, cost and schedule estimation, human factors, process sizing, quality assurance, technical management, and risk management. 
    If one takes a look regressively back and indulge into more abstract and theoretical facades of some of the programming language, he may find two reasons to get familiar with it. Initially, these factors almost always dictate critical decisions as to what instruments to use and when to implement. People don't intend to engage in using the inaccurate technology for a piece of work, provided they are devoting themselves to create a large software platform. Besides, tools that are different can keep taking considerable time to settle down. If one has to opt for a new device that is radically different from what he is accustomed to, comprehending the basic principles will ensure a smooth transition.

    A world-renowned animal trainer recounts her fight to win custody of a pit bull unfairly condemned to die in this “wonderful” true story (The Wall Street Journal).   Writer and dog trainer Vicki Hearne first explored the human-animal bond in her classic bestseller Adam’s Task. In Bandit, she returns to that theme, but on a more intimate scale, telling the tale of a pit bull terrier who bit three people and ended up sentenced to death by her home state of Connecticut.   Employing a unique combination of psychology, philosophy, sociology, and dog training theory, Hearne recounts her successful campaign to rescue Bandit from “doggie death row,” a legal battle that extended well beyond the particulars of his case. As she fought to prove that no dog is inherently vicious, Hearne quickly discovered the factors that contributed to Bandit’s behavior and set about releasing the essentially “good dog” that lay within.   A powerful inside account of the so-called pit bull wars that continue to rage to this day, Bandit is “simply one of the most perceptive works about the social contracts between humans and animals ever written” (Kirkus Reviews).   “Brilliant, fiery. Hearne captures a hundred nuances of the relation between people and animals. Anyone who likes dogs . . . will like Bandit.” —Chicago Sun-Times   “One cannot help coming away from this book with an utterly transformed understanding of dogs.” —The Wall Street Journal
