Into the Storm: On the Ground in Iraq

Tom Clancy has explored the military and security issues of our time in a brilliant series of novels. Now he takes us into the heart and mind of a remarkable military leader to show us the nature of war and command from the inside.
Based on the story of America’s greatest military triumph since World War II — the victory over Iraq in the Gulf War — *Into the Storm* tells us how leaders learn and grow, and how they forge people, elements and forces together into a campaign of power and precision. We hear how General Frederick M. Franks, Jr. commanded the armor and infantry of VII Corps, the main coalition force that broke the back of Iraq’s Republican Guard. Beyond that, *Into the Storm* describes the transformation of an army traumatized by the Vietnam War and the metamorphosis of a man devastated by the loss of a leg in that war. The former once again became the world’s most powerful force; the latter, the first amputee active-duty general since the Civil War.
Together the story of that army, that man, and the war they fought make *Into the Storm* an instant classic of military history.

Into the Maelstrom

ENTRY #2 IN CITIZEN SERIES, SEQUEL TO INTO THE HINTERLANDS. Science fiction adventure on the frontier realms of empire written by biological scientist Dr. John Lambshead and nationally best-selling David Drake.
THE RIGHT MAN FOR A VERY BAD JOB
The Cutter Stream colonies were at peace. If everybody behaved reasonably, that peace could last a thousand years.
Allen Allenson had known war; it had made him peaceful and reasonable. He was far too experienced to believe the same was true of all his fellow colonists, however, let alone the government of the distant homeworld across the Bight.
War was coming, a war that the colonies had to win if they were ever to be more than prison camps and a dumping ground for incompetent noblemen. The experience that had caused Allenson to hate war made him the only man who could lead the colonial army.
Allenson knew that he wasn’t really a general, but he understood his fellow colonists better than any homeworld general could. He would free the Cutter Stream, or he would die trying.
What Allen Allenson would not do, what he would *never* do, was quit.
At the publisher’s request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Managment).

Interesting Times

SUMMARY: “May you live in interesting times” is the worst thing one can wish on a citizen of Discworld — especially on the distinctly unmagical sorcerer Rincewind, who has had far too much perilous excitement in his life. But when a request for a “Great Wizzard” arrives in Ankh-Morpork via carrier albatross from the faraway Counterweight Continent, it’s he who’s sent as emissary. Chaos threatens to follow the impending demise of the Agatean Empire’s current ruler. And, for some incomprehensible reason, someone believes Rincewind will have a mythic role in the war and wholesale bloodletting that will surely ensue. (Carnage is pretty much a given, since Cohen the Barbarian and his extremely elderly Silver Horde are busily formulating their own plan for looting, pillaging, and, er, looking wistfully at girls.) However, Rincewind firmly believes there are too many heroes already in the world, yet only one Rincewind. And he owes it to the world to keep that one alive for as long as possible.

The Intention Experiment: Use Your Thoughts to Change the World

What if thought had a physical effect on the world that could focus our lives, heal our bodies…and even transform the planet? Lynne McTaggart, groundbreaking author of ‘The Field’, takes us on a mind-blowing journey with remarkable evidence that the universe is connected with a power that can be harnessed to change our lives – and the world.
For the last 40 years renegade scientists, experimenting with the limits of quantum physics, have made seemingly impossible discoveries. 1966: a lie-detector expert accidentally discovers that plants can read thoughts. 1982: meditating Buddhist monks in the Himalayas turn their bodies into a human furnace. 1994: a psychologist’s experiments reveal a stream of light flowing from healers during healing.
These events form part of an extraordinary scientific detective story about a revolutionary discovery – that thought is a thing that affects other things.
In The Intention Experiment, Lynne McTaggart, author of the international bestseller The Field, takes you on a mind-blowing journey to the farthest reaches of consciousness. Building on the discoveries of The Field, which documented evidence of a quantum energy field connecting the universe, McTaggart joins forces with a team of international, renowned scientists to test the effects of focused group intention on scientifically quantifiable targets – animal, plant and human.
The Intention Experiment is a truly revolutionary book. It shows how human thought and intention has the power to focus our lives, heal our illnesses, clean up our communities and improve the planet. It also offers you a practical programme to harness that power to make changes in your own life. And it invites you, the reader, to take part in the greatest ongoing intention experiment in history, the results of which have begun to yield remarkable evidence about the power of thought.
