Summary

Start to Win is Eric Twiname's sailing classic. Out of print for over 20 years, it has nevertheless retained its position as the

such a clear, understandable and straightforward manner.

  • Natural Aphrodisiacs - Myth or Reality - cover

    Natural Aphrodisiacs - Myth or...

    The widespread use of effective prescription drugs for erectile dysfunction has helped advance societys acceptance of talking about sexual dysfunction for both men and women.  As the authors elegantly describe, sexual dysfunction and attempts at treating it have been around for as long as sexuality itself.  Its no surprise that history is full of myths about aphrodisiacs.  Despite all the advances we have made in medicine, the myth of the aphrodisiacs is as powerful as ever.  However, sexual dysfunction is very often a complex problem requiring careful, thoughtful and educated treatment.  Rarely is there quick natural fix.  Consumers need to do their homework before buying into the claims of companies selling natural aphrodisiacs.  This book is an excellent resource for those seeking to educate themselves about the history, effectiveness, safety and future of natural aphrodisiacs.  Nevertheless, the information contained within the text is also important and valuable for both sides of the patient-physician equation in the treatment of sexual dysfunction.

    The authors have expressed very clearly the various merits and demerits of natural aphrodisiac products on the market.  Discussion on the future prospects of plant used as aphrodisiacs is excellent information for the phytochemists who are interested to pursue research limitations in the area of existing natural aphrodisiacs and their standardizations is consistent with the rising interest of global consumers in green environment.  A special effort in creating the drawings of the natural products for enabling readers to identify the natural products is phenomenal.  I recommend this book to the lovers of natural products without any hesitation.  I hope that manufacturers, scholars and consumers of natural aphrodisiac products will take advantage of this document in years to come.

    The latest research on herbal aphrodisiacs cited by the authors is very impressive.  The appropriate quotations at the beginning of each chapter are very fascinating.  It is a comprehensive compendium on natural aphrodisiacs comprising their origin, myth, chemistry, pharmacology, risk and romance.  Hand drawings of the plants are excellent and depict their morphological characteristics that can be helpful in identifying them.  The book is actually a ready reckoner for physicians, pharmacist, or herbalists for guiding the patients who are incorporating natural products in their daily regime.

    Biomimicry - Innovation Inspired...

    This profound and accessible book details how science is studying nature’s best ideas to solve our toughest 21st-century problems. 
    If chaos theory transformed our view of the universe, biomimicry is transforming our life on Earth. Biomimicry is innovation inspired by nature – taking advantage of evolution’s 3.8 billion years of R&D since the first bacteria. Biomimics study nature’s best ideas: photosynthesis, brain power, and shells – and adapt them for human use. They are revolutionising how we invent, compute, heal ourselves, harness energy, repair the environment, and feed the world.  
    Science writer and lecturer Janine Benyus names and explains this phenomenon. She takes us into the lab and out in the field with cutting-edge researchers as they stir vats of proteins to unleash their computing power; analyse how electrons zipping around a leaf cell convert sunlight into fuel in trillionths of a second; discover miracle drugs by watching what chimps eat when they’re sick; study the hardy prairie as a model for low-maintenance agriculture; and more.

    'I do not see why it [the machine] should not enter any one of the fields normally covered by the human intellect, and eventually compete on equal terms.'Alan Turing, 1949
     
    Today computers shape every aspect of our lives. In our pockets, we carry mobile phones with computing power that was unimaginable just 50 years ago. Every workplace has its array of desktops, servers, and laptops, and a selection of specially designed software. Many industries are embracing the promises - and the risks - of artificial intelligence. The world is changing faster than ever, and computing is at the heart of technological development.
     
    While computers themselves are modern phenomena, for centuries people have been attempting to solve complex problems, often with the aid of machines. The first computers were not machines at all, but people armed with mathematical tables and infinite patience. They were replaced by heavy, cumbersome machines that sprawled over multiple rooms. Over the course of half a century, they were transformed from an obscure tool for scientists into the quintessential consumer product.
     
    The Story of Computing takes you on an incredible journey through the ideas, the discoveries, and the personalities that shaped the modern technology on which we have come to rely.
     
    Topics include:· the birth of the computer· codebreaking in World War II· innovations in hardware and software· artificial intelligence· the internet· the challenges of cybersecurity.
