Summary

The yearly military reference that’s “a well written, easy to read and well illustrated discussion of current naval power world-wide”—Thomo’s Hole.   Now firmly established as an authoritative but affordable summary of all that has happened in the naval world in the previous twelve months, this annual combines 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 weaponry, and calls on expertise from around the globe to give a balanced picture of what is going on and to interpret its significance.   Features of this edition include an analysis of the Republic of Korea Navy and the response to its aggressive northern neighbor. Significant Ships will cover the USN’s revamped Arleigh Burke class destroyer design, German F125 class frigates, and the RNZN’s Otago class offshore patrol vessels. There are also technological reviews dealing with naval aviation by David Hobbs, RN missile programs by Richard Scott, while Norman Friedman turns his attention to new generation weapons technology.  The World Naval Review is intended to make interesting reading as well as providing authoritative reference, so there is a strong visual emphasis, including specially commissioned drawings and the most up-to-date photographs and artists’ impressions. For anyone with an interest in contemporary naval affairs, whether an enthusiast or a defense professional, this annual has become required reading.

    What causes autism? Is it a genetic disorder, or due to some unknown environmental hazard? Are we facing an autism epidemic? What are the main symptoms, and how does it relate to Asperger syndrome? Everyone has heard of autism, but the disorder itself is little understood. It has captured the public imagination through films and novels portraying individuals with baffling combinations of disability and extraordinary talent, and yet the reality is that it often places a heavy burden on sufferers and their families.This Very Short Introduction offers a clear statement on what is currently known about autism and Asperger syndrome. Explaining the vast array of different conditions that hide behind these two labels, and looking at symptoms from the full spectrum of autistic disorders, it explores the possible causes for the apparent rise in autism and also evaluates the links with neuroscience, psychology, brain development, genetics, and environmental causes including MMR and Thimerosal. This VSI also explores the psychology behind social impairment and savantism, and sheds light on what it is like to live inside the mind of the sufferer.

    Many times when people hear the word “bodyguard,” a certain image forms in their mind. Unfortunately, this image is too often complicated by stereotypes of muscular men in sunglasses and fancy suits shooting handguns as they jump sideways over a car in slow motion. I have never seen this in my experience as a bodyguard. I have seen many years of professionals working day in and day out, committed to protecting innocent people from people who want to harm them. I have witnessed professionalism that has humbled me and inspired me. I had been fortunate enough to work with professionals who I watched be the first to arrive, work all day in stressful environments, and be the last to leave. 
    They are the professionals who work all of the time and are never seen or heard from on camera. They are silent and remain behind the scenes. Every day, more and more threats emerge in our world. Everything from terrorism to rising crime rates continues to make our world more and more dangerous. One thing is for sure, the need for protection and personal security is not going away. If you are interested in the industry of bodyguard work or executive protection, or even if you are already working in this field, this book is a great resource. It lists 101 principles that have been learned by someone who has been working in the private security and executive protection sector for over ten years. Each guide is born out of personal experience working in the field.

    Many people claim they would rather be diagnosed with cancer than dementia or Alzheimer's. What they may not realize is that decreased or impaired brain function is not a foregone conclusion as we get older. Our own lifestyle choices and habits can have a significant impact—for good or ill—on our brains. And that means there's hope.Drawing from the latest medical research, Dr. Richard Furman helps listeners understand brain health and shows them how to make three powerful lifestyle changes that can help decrease the probability of developing dementia or Alzheimer's. He explains how eating the right foods, exercising, and sustaining an ideal weight can dramatically reduce the likelihood of developing brain disorders in the first place, and even how those habits can slow the progression of dementia in someone who has already received a diagnosis.

    A Stranger-Than-Fiction True Story of Closure and Completion 
    The journey of finding biological family members can be a rollercoaster ride of peaks, valleys, unexpected twists and hairpin turns. The surprisingly rare phenomenon of adoption is as unique as every child, parent and family experiencing it. Until now, no memoir has so artfully described the difficulty abandoned children known as foundlings face when trying to find their genetic truth or the thrill they experience upon finally coming face to face with their Spitting Image. Adoptive parents, genetic families and everyone seeking unanswered truths, or hiding from them will be encouraged and entertained by this remarkable true story.  
    One bright summer afternoon on weekend errands with his mother, 10-year-old Ronald's faint suspicions that he is adopted are confirmed by his mother's careful, well-practiced announcement of the truth. As a child whose appearance is close enough to that of his extended African-American adoptive family, he has always felt a part of them, but now things make a little more sense, and a 40-year odyssey of seeking his genetic truth is triggered. The formative years of spiritual training by his Baptist minister grandfather return to steady him as he is confronted by startling revelations of his birth-parents' past and his abandonment at a Detroit hospital shortly after birth.  
    Spitting Image is a sweeping saga spanning hundreds of years that results in the creation of one unique human being who against all odds survives them to deliver a message of faith and great hope. Are you ready for the truth?
