    Home Gardener’s Small Gardens is the essential guide to improving a small garden and turning the most modest-sized space into a stunning outdoor area. It offers lushly illustrated strategies for making the most of a confined space—whether backyard, terrace or courtyard. Get started with an informative discussion of small garden types, appropriate plants, problems and opportunities, design, and planning. The excitement truly begins with a look at the wide variety of stylistic options. The gardens range from Mediterranean to wildflower, secluded to low-maintenance, container to balcony. And a plant directory covers it all: summer-flowering annuals, herbaceous perennials, shrubs, small trees, climbers, water plants, bamboos, culinary herbs, fruits, vegetables, and even more. For a finishing touch, there's practical information on garden construction, with step-by-step instructions for making paths, patios and other garden structures.

    Poker math for micro and small...

    This book is for any new or seasoned poker player who has failed or forgotten to bring simple poker maths into their poker gameand No-Limit Hold'em (NLHE). The book will teach you the basic poker mathematics you need to learn to strengthen and outplay your opponents, and will focus on basic poker mathematics-those you'll use at the poker table day in and day out; and perhaps those that your opponents ignore. 
    Most players in No Limit Holdem frequently lack poker mathematics–which is easy to understand and execute–leading them to make mathematically incorrect moves. While this may seem somewhat trivial, in the long run, such incorrect movements may cause both good and bad poker players to win substantially less and lose much more money than they would if they actually understood and applied simple poker mathematics. 
    Trust me, to understand and apply important maths in your poker game you don't need a graduate degree in mathematics or statistics. Everything you need is a basic understanding of arithmetic and algebra. 
    I'm excited to have you here to take you on a trip. You'll have a much deeper understanding of poker mathematics by the end of this book, and as a result you'll be a much better poker player. 
    Over the years, the poker game has evolved from a street-smart game, reads and says, to a game deeply rooted in game theory and mathematics. This is apparent on television as well as in popular poker books and training material. 
    Most poker books, however, still pay lip service to the game's more human elements. Poker is a game that people are playing, not machines. People have impulses, drives and feelings which can cause them to behave in unpredictable and illogical ways. 
    Whether you're a male or a female, a novice or an experienced player, young or old, we hope the Poker Mindset will help you make your play easier. Read on to find a whole new way to look at the game.

    Maurice Hornocker is recognized worldwide as the first scientist to unravel the secrets of America's most enigmatic predator—the mountain lion. A story of redemption, this book is a memoir about the never-before-told adventures, challenges, and controversies surrounding Hornocker's groundbreaking study of cougars in the remote reaches of the Idaho Primitive Area.North America's biggest cat was once killed for bounty dollars, slaughtered with impunity and driven toward extinction. But today's cat of intrigue, despite our lingering fears and misconceptions, has returned to much of its native range in the western United States and gained respect as a predator integral and necessary to wild ecosystems. This turnaround was triggered by one man: Maurice Hornocker. Cougars on the Cliff recounts the early years of his research when he tracked lions following a dog's nose and footprints in the snow—before telemetry was available. Hornocker was first to learn that mountain lions living in stable populations limit their own numbers through territoriality and a concept he called "mutual avoidance." This insight flew in the face of long-held beliefs that cougars were prolific and wanton killers that needed to be controlled as vermin. Thanks to Hornocker's work, today cougars can be found throughout the West and have even started to reclaim their place in New England.
