This manual provides detailed explanation of manufacturing munitions from seemingly innocuous locally available materials. As an official army manual, it was primarily intended to increase the potential of Special Forces and guerrilla troops, however, "Improvised Munitions Handbook" represents perfect reading for all arms enthusiasts, as well as civilians considering their safety. This edition offers simple instructions, enriched with a large number of illustrations, on various techniques for constructing many different weapons and devices made of materials that can be bought in a drug or hardware store or found in a junkyard. The instructions are presented in a way that even people normally not familiar with making and handling munitions can use them.

    Is it really possible to talk with animals? Or at least to realize that they are talking to us all the time? Patty Summers listens and understands.An "animal communicator," Summers can converse directly with a variety of animal species, from cats and dogs to rabbits, horses, and iguanas. In this beautiful and moving book, the animals share their wisdom, their perspective on life, and even how they feel about human beings. The animals can teach us many things, and Summers uses her abilities to help humans listen and to aid humans and animals in understanding one another better.She also describes the ways that animals comprehend the world, and explains that they always understand the intent of human communications, if not the words. And she teaches that they share our wants and needs, as they desire the same things that humans do: love, compassion, kindness, and respect; and they do not want to be thought of as pets or as beings to be exploited.Summers shares numerous encounters with animals, and each story has a valuable lesson - each is a gift of spirit from the animals. We have so much to learn from our animal companions, domestic and otherwise. Talking with the Animals provides a rare glimpse inside the minds of the creatures with whom we share our planet.

    Book Summary of Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari 
    About | Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari • Since the beginning of history, humanity has considered itself more special than the rest of the world. And the last few centuries of technological progress have only cemented our dominance over other animals. Yet, the future of humanity is anything but clear. Because humans have tackled the long-enduring problems of hunger, global plagues and war, science and technological interest will soon need to focus on new challenges. Based on Harari's predictions, that future won’t look anything like the world we know today.  
    Harari wrote Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow as a sequel to his earlier book, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humanity. After looking at what made humans stand out in the first place (Sapiens), Harari turns his attention to the future and the likely attempts to upgrade humans into gods. What may seem impossible today (immortality, complete control over mood) might become possible in the future. The pace of technology and the prevalence of immersive data systems like Google is changing how humans relate to the world and challenging beliefs about the value of humans in the first place. Will all jobs be replaced by robots? Will the world be run by a class of upgraded super-humans? What will we do if this happens? By looking at history to predict the future, these are the questions that Harari answers. 
    Here’s what you’ll learn about in this summary: 3 challenges humanity has been fighting against since the beginning of time, and the challenges that'll begin to fill our time insteadWhy humans are more like machines than special beings with souls and free willHow the value of humans will change as technology continues to advanceAnd much more

    What happened that changed the priest—the revered healer of antiquity—into a person of science? How was the modern doctor made?Physician is Rajeev Kurapati’s earnest attempt to answer this question and others central to the practice of medicine. For instance, how have the advances of medical technology influenced society’s perception of death? How do physicians balance thinking with feeling when dealing with critically ill patients? How do we meet the needs of patients seeking a personal connection to their doctor in what may seem to be an emotionally deficient medical landscape? Is it possible to overcome some of the compromises we’ve had to make along the way? What is the promise of modern medicine and its limitations? And notably—as medical care becomes more and more digitized and automated, will the medical degree—a universal badge of respectability—continue to hold value? Dr. Kurapati, a practicing hospital physician, succeeds in gracefully exploring the depths of what it really means to be a doctor—and a patient—at this time in our human history, and his blueprint for building a stronger future of healthcare is an important and valuable one.

    The true story of a mysterious shipwreck during the Klondike gold rush.   In early February 1898, witnesses reported a giant orange fireball reflected in the glacial waters of Alaska’s Lynn Canal. At the height of Klondike gold fever, the Clara Nevada disappeared into an epic storm, taking passengers and priceless cargo with her.   Was the explosion an accident—or a robbery gone wrong? Did Captain C.H. Lewis make off with $165,000—$13.6 million in today’s currency—in raw gold? Or was the sinking simply a case of a sea-weary steamer meeting an untimely end?   Alaska historian Steven C. Levi combs the archives to piece together the true account of the Clara Nevada’s final voyage, attempting to solve the riddle of the lost steamer that resurfaced ten years after that tragic night and became known as Alaska’s ghost ship.

    Fisherman's Summer

    The writer and conservationist masterfully reflects on his experiences as a fly-fisherman on the rivers of British Columbia. 
    An end to Roderick L. Haig-Brown’s “seasons” cycle, Fisherman’s Summer is a book that can be read again and again, for both knowledge and pleasure. In this installment, he focuses again on the rivers of his native British Columbia such as the Campbell, the Columbia, and the Nimpkish.  
    Among his vast wealth of knowledge concerning fly-fishing, readers are also exposed to his wise reflections. His discussions of the past fishermen of those rivers, including Native Americans and pioneers, and his hope that the future of these rivers will remain abundant and full of life, will touch the hearts of fishermen and nonfishermen alike. 
    Interspersed with his reflections are tips on an array of different aspects of fly-fishing. Readers will learn about fishing for cutthroats, rainbows, summer steelhead, coho salmon, and more; which flies are best for different fish and different environments; and which rivers in his home of British Columbia produce an abundance of certain fish—all within the delightful confines of summer. 
    “Not since Walton has there been a writer who can describe the joys of fishing as does Haig-Brown.” —Boston Post
