Summary

“My new go-to resource for planning a trip to golf’s homeland . . . Immaculately designed and crammed with beautiful photography.” —Brian Kendall, Canadian Golf Traveller   Every golf course around the globe has one thing in common—they are all unique. No two courses are ever the same. Golf is the only major sport that offers a different experience wherever you go.   The aim of this guide is to offer a golfer all the information they would require to enjoy a great round of golf at the best courses Scotland has to offer. You will find all the essential information you need here—from par score, yardage, and cost of a round to booking procedure and how best to play the course. Universally regarded as the birthplace of the modern game, Scotland boasts some of the finest courses in the world: Royal Troon; Turnberry; and the fabled Old Course, St Andrews, to name just a few. These are the courses all keen golfers would wish to play given the opportunity.   “Very well written and treads a deft line between the scholarly and the light-hearted . . . I closed the book wanting to hop on a train, travel up to the Auld Grey shores and play golf: you can’t pay a travel book a higher compliment than that.” —Will Trinkwon, Golfshake.com   “A book where pure enjoyment leaps from every page.” —For the Love of Books   “There are few golfers in the world who don’t yearn for a Scottish golf trip one day and this book will most definitely whet your appetite and help you plan that special trip.” —UK Golf Guy

    It could be argued that the great Western or 'Gods' Wonderful Railway' was for many years the most famous railway in England. Much of the railway that we see today was the work of one of the greatest engineers of his time, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The company was also served by locomotive engineers such as Gooch, Armstrong, Churchward, Collett and Hawksworth, who produced a series of locomotives that were well designed, elegant and powerful.Serving many holiday resorts of the south west, with trains such as 'The Cornish Riviera Express,' the publicity department exploited to great effect that the 'Great Western' was the 'Holiday Line.' It is probably true to say that in the years before the Second World War the company was producing some of the most effective publicity material in England.Using previously unpublished material from the extensive 'Great Western Trust' collection at Didcot Railway Centre, the book illustrates in both black and white and color many facets that made the Great Western 'Great"

    Since the mid-1960s the Heckler & Koch MP5 has become the most widely used submachine gun in the world, especially among counterterrorist and special-operations units. Lightweight and offering a blistering rate of fire of up to 900 rounds per minute, the MP5 quickly earned a reputation for accuracy. Fielded early by West Germany's GSG 9 counterterrorist unit it was soon adopted by the SAS. Today military and police agencies in over 80 countries from Albania to Zambia utilize the weapon. Featuring specially commissioned full-color photographs and expert analysis, this engaging study charts the origins, use, and impact of the MP5, Heckler & Koch's innovative and long-lived submachine gun.

    “[A] juicy memoir about growing up, becoming a chef, and working as New York’s most unconventional wedding caterer.” —BUST magazine   When their high-school-aged, punk, runaway daughter is found hosting a Jersey Shore hotel party, Rossi’s parents feel they have no other choice: they ship her off to live with a Chasidic rabbi in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Within the confines of this restrictive culture, Rossi’s big city dreams take root. Once she makes her way to Manhattan, Rossi’s passion for cooking, which first began as a revolt against the microwave, becomes her life mission. The Raging Skillet is one woman’s story of cooking her way through some of the most unlikely kitchens in New York City—at a “beach” in Tribeca, an East Village supper club, and a makeshift grill at Ground Zero in the days immediately following 9/11. Forever writing her own rules, Rossi ends up becoming the owner of one of the most sought-after catering companies in the city. This heartfelt, gritty, and hilarious memoir shows us how the creativity of the kitchen allows us to give a nod to where we come from, while simultaneously expressing everything that we are. This “moving, witty memoir” (Nigella Lawson) includes unpretentious recipes for real people everywhere.   “A humorous and witty chronicle of a woman’s pulling-herself-up-by-her-bootstraps rise through the culinary ranks.” —Kirkus Reviews

    A globetrotting voyage of discovery celebrating the navigational superpowers of animals—by land, sea, and sky 
    Animals plainly know where they're going, but how they get there has remained surprisingly mysterious—until now. 
    In Supernavigators, award-winning author David Barrie catches us up on the cutting-edge science. Here are astounding animals of every stripe: Dung beetles that steer by the light of the Milky Way. Ants and bees that rely on patterns of light invisible to humans. Sea turtles and moths that find their way using Earth's magnetic field. Humpback whales that swim thousands of miles while holding a rock-steady course. Birds that can locate their nests on a tiny island after crisscrossing an ocean. 
    The age of viewing animals as unthinking drones is over. As Supernavigators makes clear, a stunning array of species command senses, skills—and arguably, types of intelligence—beyond our own. Weaving together interviews with leading animal behaviorists and the groundbreaking discoveries of Nobel Prize–winning scientists, David Barrie reveals these wonders in a whole new light.
