comments: After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of **The Gunslinger** , Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea—each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower. In 1987, he finds Eddie Dean, The Prisoner, a heroin addict. In 1964, he meets Odetta Holmes, the Lady of Shadows, a young African-American heiress who lost her lower legs in a subway accident and gained a second personality that rages within her. And in 1977, he encounters Jack mort, Death, a pusher responsible for cruelties beyond imagining. Has Roland found new companions to form the ka-tet of his quest? Or has he unleashed something else entirely?

comments: Beginning with a short story appearing in *The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction* in 1978, the publication of Stephen King's epic work of fantasy -- what he considers to be a single long novel and his magnum opus -- has spanned a quarter of a century.
+ Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, *The Dark Tower* series is King's most visionary feat of storytelling, a magical mix of science fiction, fantasy, and horror that may well be his crowning achievement.
+ **Book I**
+ In *The Gunslinger* (originally published in 1982), King introduces his most enigmatic hero, Roland Deschain of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger. He is a haunting, solitary figure at first, on a mysterious quest through a desolate world that eerily mirrors our own. Pursuing the man in black, an evil being who can bring the dead back to life, Roland is a good man who seems to leave nothing but death in his wake.
+ This new edition of *The Gunslinger* has been revised and expanded throughout by King, with new story material, in addition to a new introduction and foreword. It also includes four full-color illustrations in the hardcover and trade paperback formats.

comments: With 10 full-color illustrations by Darrel Anderson
+
+ The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, *Song of Susannah* is at once a book of revelation, a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower, and a fast-paced story of double-barreled suspense.
+
+ To give birth to her "chap," demon-mother Mia has usurped the body of Susannah Dean and used the power of Black Thirteen to transport to New York City in the summer of 1999. The city is strange to Susannah...and terrifying to the "daughter of none," who shares her body and mind.
+
+ Saving the Tower depends not only on rescuing Susannah but also on securing the vacant lot Calvin Tower owns before he loses it to the Sombra Corporation. Enlisting the aid of Manni senders, the remaining katet climbs to the Doorway Cave...and discovers that magic has its own mind. It falls to the boy, the billy-bumbler, and the fallen priest to find Susannah-Mia, who, in a struggle to cope -- *with* each other and with an alien environment -- "go todash" to Castle Discordia on the border of End-World. In that forsaken place, Mia reveals her origins, her purpose, and her fierce desire to mother whatever creature the two of them have carried to term.
+
+ Eddie and Roland, meanwhile, tumble into western Maine in the summer of 1977, a world that should be idyllic but isn't. For one thing, it is real, and the bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called *'Salem's Lot,* a writer who turns out to be as shocked by them as they are by him.
+
+ These are the simple vectors of a story rich in complexity and conflict. Its dual climaxes, one at the entrance to a deadly dining establishment and the other appended to the pages of a writer's journal, will leave readers gasping for the saga's final volume (which, Dear Reader, follows soon, say thank ya).

comments: *Wizard and Glass* picks up where the last book left off, with our hero, Roland, and his unlikely band of followers escaping from one world and slipping into the next. And it is there that Roland tells them a story, one that details his discovery of something even more elusive than the Dark Tower: love. But his romance with the beautiful and quixotic Susan Delgado also has its dangers, as her world is tom apart by war. Here is Roland's journey to his own past, to a time when valuable lessons awaited him, lessons of loyalty and betrayal, love and loss.

comments: The fifth installment of King's #1 "New York Times" masterpiece. Roland and his tet have just returned to the path of the Beam when they discover that they are being followed by a group of inexperienced trackers. The trackers are from the town of Calla Bryn Sturgis, and they desperately need the help of gunslingers. Once every generation, a band of masked riders known as the Wolves gallop out of the dark land of Thunderclap to steal one half of all the twins born in the Callas. When the children are returned, they are roont, or mentally and physically ruined. In less than a month, the Wolves will raid again. In exchange for Rolands aid, Father Callahan—a priest originally from our world—offers to give Roland a powerful but evil seeing sphere, a sinister globe called Black Thirteen which he has hidden below the floorboards of his church. Not only must Roland and his tet discover a way to defeat the invincible Wolves, but they must also return to New Yorks so that they can save our worlds incarnation of the Dark Tower from the machinations of the evil Sombra Corporation.

Consistent number-one bestsellers in England, they have garnered him a secure position in the pantheon of humor along with Mark Twain, Douglas Adams, Matt Groening, and Jonathan Swift.<p>Even so distinguished an author as A. S. Byatt has sung his praises, calling Pratchett's intricate and delightful fictional Discworld "more complicated and satisfying than Oz."<p>His latest satiric triumph, <I> Carpe Jugulum,</I> involves an exclusive royal snafu that leads to comic mayhem.

Von Igelfeld is engaged in a never-ending quest to win the respect he feels certain he is due--a quest which has the tendency to go hilariously astray.<br><br>In <i>Unusual Uses for Olive Oil</i>, von Igelfeld experiences a series of new adventures.

Later, while on the annual student study retreat in the Alps, von Igelfeld fearlessly plunges 3000 feet into mountaineering history, and turns his survival into the subject of inspirational lectures. Finally, at a dinner party, he is the only kind soul who can aid an unfortunate...

comments: Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them?
+ Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from the riot of adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother. With rapier wit, Moran slices right to the truth--whether it's about the workplace, strip clubs, love, fat, abortion, popular entertainment, or children--to jump-start a new conversation about feminism. With humor, insight, and verve, *How To Be a Woman* lays bare the reasons why female rights and empowerment are essential issues not only for women today but also for society itself.

comments: Lisp is a uniquely powerful programming language that, despite its academic reputation, is actually very practical. *Land of Lisp* brings the language into the real world, teaching readers Lisp by showing them how to write several complete Lisp-based games, including a text adventure, an evolution simulation, and a robot battle. While building these games, readers learn the core concepts of Lisp programming, such as recursion, input/output, object-oriented programming, and macros. And thanks to Lisp's powerful syntax, the example code is short and easy to understand. The book is filled with the author's brilliant Lisp cartoons, which are sure to appeal to many Lisp fans and, in the tradition of all No Starch Press titles, make learning more fun.

comments: <p>Susanna Clarke's brilliant novel is an utterly compelling, epic tale of nineteenth-century England and the way two very different magicians, who, as teacher and pupil and then as rivals, emerge to change its history. In the year 1806, in the throes of the Napoleonic Wars, most people believe magic to be dead in England--until the reclusive Mr. Norrell of Hurtfew Abbey reveals his powers and becomes a celebrity overnight. Soon, another magician emerges; the young, handsome, and daring Jonathan Strange. He becomes Norrell's student, and the two join forces in the war against France. But as Strange is increasingly drawn to the wildest, most perilous forms of magic, he risks sacrificing not only his friendship with Norrell, but everything else that he holds dear. An international bestseller published in 31 countries,Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell is a tour de force that has captured the imagination of readers worldwide.

comments: The world is changing. Markets have crashed. Jobs have disappeared. Industries have been disrupted and are being remade before our eyes. Everything we aspired to for “security,” everything we thought was “safe,” no longer is: College. Employment. Retirement. Government. Its all crumbling down. In every part of society, the middlemen are being pushed out of the picture. No longer is someone coming to hire you, to invest in your company, to sign you, to pick you. Its on you to make the most important decision in your life: Choose Yourself.
+
+ New tools and economic forces have emerged to make it possible for individuals to create art, make millions of dollars and change the world without “help.” More and more opportunities are rising out of the ashes of the broken system to generate real inward success (personal happiness and health) and outward success (fulfilling work and wealth).

comments: EDITORIAL REVIEW:
+ Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people--at work, at school, at home. It's wrong. As Daniel H. Pink explains in his new and paradigm- shattering book *Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us*, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.
+ Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does--and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the *wrong* way to motivate people for today's challenges. In *Drive*, he reveals the three elements of true motivation:
+ ***Autonomy**- the desire to direct our own lives
+ ***Mastery**- the urge to get better and better at something that matters
+ ***Purpose**- the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves
+ Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward.
+ *Drive* is bursting with big ideas-- the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live.

comments: BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Chip Heath and Dan Heath's *Switch*.
+
+ Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: Urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas--business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others-- struggle to make their ideas "stick."
+
+ Why do some ideas thrive while others die? And how do we improve the chances of worthy ideas? In *Made to Stick* , accomplished educators and idea collectors Chip and Dan Heath tackle head-on these vexing questions. Inside, the brothers Heath reveal the anatomy of ideas that stick and explain ways to make ideas stickier, such as applying the "human scale principle," using the "Velcro Theory of Memory," and creating "curiosity gaps."
+
+ In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky...

comments: <p>Stephen King's apocalyptic vision of a world blasted by plague and tangled in an elemental struggle between good and evil remains as riveting and eerily plausible as when it was first published.<br><i> </i><br>A patient escapes from a biological testing facility, unknowingly carrying a deadly weapon: a mutated strain of super-flu that will wipe out 99 percent of the world's population within a few weeks. Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge--Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a peaceful community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious "Dark Man," who delights in chaos and violence. As the dark man and the peaceful woman gather power, the survivors will have to choose between them--and ultimately decide the fate of all humanity.

author_sort: Adams, Richard
comments: " *Shardik* is a powerful work, dipping deep into old forms-allegory, epic, myth-resonating in the caverns of the readers' unconscious . . . It is an exciting story, the adventures compelling." ( *Los Angeles Times* )
+
+ "Grips with suspense, haunts with mystery . . . a memorable work, not to be read once only but to be reread as loved books are . . . a human saga." ( *The Wall Street Journal* )
+
+ Richard Adams's *Watership Down* was a number one bestseller, a stunning work of the imagination, and an acknowledged modern classic. In *Shardik* Adams sets a different yet equally compelling tale in a far-off fantasy world.
+
+ *Shardik* is a fantasy of tragic character, centered on the long-awaited reincarnation of the gigantic bear Shardik and his appearance among the half-barbaric Ortelgan people. Mighty, ferocious, and unpredictable, Shardik changes the life of every person in the story. His advent commences a momentous chain of events. Kelderek the hunter, who loves and trusts the great bear, is swept on by destiny to become first devotee and then prophet, then victorious soldier, then ruler of an empire and priest-king of Lord Shardik-Messenger of God-only to discover ever-deeper layers of meaning implicit in his passionate belief in the bear's divinity.
+
+ A gripping tale of war, adventure, horror and romance, *Shardik* , on a deeper level, is a remarkable exploration of mankind's universal desire for divine incarnation.
+ ### From Library Journal
+ Shardik was Adams's 1974 follow-up to his phenomenally popular debut, Watership Down. The title character is a gigantic bear who is the god of the primitive Ortelgan people. The hunter Kelderek becomes Shardik's greatest disciple and, eventually, ruler when the bear finally does make its return. On the surface, the book works as a fantasy adventure; on a deeper level, it explores our relationship with the divine. No matter what you want to see in it, Shardik is a good read.

Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise.

comments: <p>In <em>Practical AVR Microcontrollers</em>, youll learn how to use the AVR microcontroller to make your own nifty projects and gadgets. Youll start off with the basics in part one: setting up your development environment and learning how the "naked" AVR differs from the Arduino. Then youll gain experience by building a few simple gizmos and learning how everything can be interconnected.</p> <p>In part two, we really get into the goodies: projects! Each project will show you exactly what software and hardware you need, and will provide enough detail that you can adapt it to your own needs and parts availability. Some of the projects youll make:</p> <ul> <li>An illuminated secret panel </li> <li>A hallway lighting system with a waterfall effect </li> <li>A crazy lightshow </li> <li>Visual effects gizmos like a Moire wheel and shadow puppets </li> </ul> <p>In addition, you'll design and implement some home automation projects, including working with wired and wireless setups. Along the way, you'll design a useable home automation protocol and look at a variety of hardware setups. </p> <p>Whether youre new to electronics, or you just want to see what you can do with an AVR outside of an Arduino, <em>Practical</em> <em>AVR</em> <em>Microcontrollers</em> is the book for you.</p> <p>**</p></html>

comments: <p>Take control of your home! Automate home appliances and lighting, and learn about Arduinos and Android smartphones. Create applications that leverage ideas from this and other exciting new platforms. </p> <p>In <em>Programming Your Home</em>, technology enthusiast Mike Riley walks you through a variety of custom home automation projects, ranging from a phone application that alerts you to package deliveries at your front door to an electronic guard dog that will prevent unwanted visitors. </p> <p>Open locked doors using your smartphone. Assemble a bird feeder that posts Twitter tweets to tell you when the birds are feeding or when bird seed runs low. Have your home speak to you when you receive email or tell you about important events such as the arrival of visitors, and much more! </p> <p>You'll learn how to use Android smartphones, Arduinos, X10 controllers and a wide array of sensors, servos, programming languages, web frameworks and mobile SDKs. <em>Programming Your Home</em> is written for smartphone programmers, web developers, technology tinkerers, and anyone who enjoys building cutting-edge, Do-It-Yourself electronic projects. </p> <p>This book will give you the inspiration and understanding to construct amazing automation capabilities that will transform your residence into the smartest home in your neighborhood! </p> <p><strong>What You Need:</strong> </p> <p>To get the most out of <em>Programming Your Home</em>, you should have some familiarity with the Arduino hardware platform along with a passion for tinkering. You should enjoy innovative thinking and learning exercises as well as have some practical application development experience. The projects use a variety of hardware components including sensors and actuators, mobile devices, and wireless radios, and we'll even tell you where you can get them.</p> <p>**</p></html><h3>Amazon.com Review</h3> <h2>Top Five Home Automation Tips</h2> <ol> <li> <p><strong>Start Small.</strong> While it would be cool for your home to behave like a scene out of a science fiction movie, building such an elaborate configuration will take a lot of time, effort and money. Try a couple small, easy projects first to get an idea of what to expect, how it behaves, and what needs to be modified to work optimally for your needs.</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Search YouTube.</strong> Creating a nifty home automation project is a badge of honor, worthy of showing off to the world. And what better place to show off these accomplishments in action. Searching combined keywords like "Arduino," "Home," and "Automation" will return a number of short videos demonstrating a variety of inspiring ideas.</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Ask an Engineer.</strong> DIY electronics vendor Adafruit, along with a number of other DIY sites like Sparkfun and Element14, have experienced electronics engineers on staff and/or in the product forums ready to help. In the case of Adafruit, they even have a weekly live broadcast that gives customers a chance to freely ask Adafruit founder Limor 'LadyAda' Fried for her expert technical advice.</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Be Safe.</strong> While most home automation projects don't call upon radical amounts of electrical current to operate, electricity can still be very dangerous if not handled with respect and understanding the risks. When in doubt, call upon the expertise of an experienced electrician before manipulating anything having to do with home electrical wiring.</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Have Fun!</strong> In addition to capturing the obvious benefits of home automation aspects that will make your life easier, the other, larger reward is the actual building of the project itself. This is especially meaningful if you build it with your family, so that each time your project activates, you have the satisfaction of recalling the joy and wonder on the faces of your loved ones witnessing the working assembly for the first time.</p> </li> </ol> <h3>Review</h3> <p>I found the book fun and at times a powerful nerd-stim agent, in the same way that Heathkit projects were to the generation before me--something useful you could assemble, build, and run in a day and impress your friends and family--with a dash of programming thrown in. Happily recommended! -- <em>A. Binstock, Dr Dobbs</em></p> <p><em>"Mike has a broad technology experience base that puts all the pieces of some remarkable projects together. Its amazing that he makes it all so easy and affordable. Dont miss all that can be learned from this gem."</em></p> <p>—Michael Bengtson, Consultant </p> <p><em>"With this book, Mike Riley celebrates the Arduino microcontroller in a way that both beginning and advanced home automation hobbyists will enjoy."</em></p> <p>—Sven Davies, Vice President of Applications </p></html>

comments: <p>Add to your current website development skills with this brilliant guide to JQuery. This step by step course needs little prior JavaScript knowledge so is suitable for beginners and more seasoned developers alike. </p> <p><strong>Overview</strong></p> <ul> <li>An introduction to jQuery that requires minimal programming experience</li> <li>Detailed solutions to specific client-side problems</li> <li>Revised and updated version of this popular jQuery book</li> </ul> <p><strong>In Detail</strong></p> <p>To build interesting, interactive sites, developers are turning to JavaScript libraries such as jQuery to automate common tasks and simplify complicated ones. Because many web developers have more experience with HTML and CSS than with JavaScript, the library's design lends itself to a quick start for designers with little programming experience. Experienced programmers will also be aided by its conceptual consistency.</p> <p>LearningjQuery - Fourth Edition is revised and updated version of jQuery. You will learn the basics of jQuery for adding interactions and animations to your pages. Even if previous attempts at writing JavaScript have left you baffled, this book will guide you past the pitfalls associated with AJAX, events, effects, and advanced JavaScript language features.</p> <p>Starting with an introduction to jQuery, you will first be shown how to write a functioning jQuery program in just three lines of code. Learn how to add impact to your actions through a set of simple visual effects and to create, copy, reassemble, and embellish content using jQuery's DOM modification methods. The book will take you through many detailed, real-world examples, and even equip you to extend the jQuery library itself with your own plug-ins.</p> <p><strong>What you will learn from this book</strong></p> <ul> <li>Create interactive elements for your web designs</li> <li>Learn how to create the best user interface for your web applications</li> <li>Use selectors in a variety of ways to get anything you want from a page</li> <li>Make things happen on your webpages with events</li> <li>Add flair to your actions with a variety of animation effects</li> <li>Discover the new features available in jQuery in this third update of this popular jQuery book</li> </ul> <p><strong>Approach</strong></p> <p>We will step through each of the core concepts of the jQuery library, building an overall picture of its capabilities. Once you have thoroughly covered the basics, the book returns to each concept to cover more advanced examples and techniques.</p> <p><strong>Who this book is written for</strong></p> <p>This book is for web designers who want to create interactive elements for their designs, and for developers who want to create the best user interface for their web applications. Basic JavaScript programming and knowledge of HTML and CSS is required. No knowledge of jQuery is assumed, nor is experience with any other JavaScript libraries.</p> <p><strong>Jonathan Chaffer</strong></p> <p>Jonathan Chaffer is a member of Rapid Development Group, a web development firm located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His work there includes overseeing and implementing projects in a wide variety of technologies, with an emphasis in PHP, MySQL, and JavaScript. He also leads on-site training seminars on the jQuery framework for web developers.</p> <p>In the open source community, he has been very active in the Drupal CMS project, which has adopted jQuery as its JavaScript framework of choice. He is the creator of the Content Construction Kit, a popular module for managing structured content on Drupal sites. He is also responsible for major overhauls of Drupal's menu system and developer API reference.</p> <p>He lives in Grand Rapids with his wife, Jennifer.</p> <p>**</p></html><h3>About the Author</h3> <p><strong>Karl Swedberg</strong></p> <p>Karl Swedberg is a web developer at Fusionary Media in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he spends much of his time making cool things happen with JavaScript. As a member of the jQuery team, he is responsible for maintaining the jQuery API site at api.jquery.com. He is also a member of jQuery's Board of Advisors and a presenter at workshops and conferences. When he isn't coding, he likes to hang out with his family, roast coffee in his garage, and exercise at the local CrossFit gym.</p></html>

comments: There's nothing that hard-core Unix and Linux users are more fanatical about than their text editor. Editors are the subject of adoration and worship, or of scorn and ridicule, depending upon whether the topic of discussion is your editor or someone else's.
+ *vi* has been the standard editor for close to 30 years. Popular on Unix and Linux, it has a growing following on Windows systems, too. Most experienced system administrators cite *vi* as their tool of choice. And since 1986, this book has been *the* guide for *vi*.
+ However, Unix systems are not what they were 30 years ago, and neither is this book. While retaining all the valuable features of previous editions, the 7th edition of *Learning the vi and vim Editors* has been expanded to include detailed information on *vim* , the leading *vi* clone. *vim* is the default version of *vi* on most Linux systems and on Mac OS X, and is available for many other operating systems too.
+ With this guide, you learn text editing basics and advanced tools for both editors, such as multi-window editing, how to write both interactive macros and scripts to extend the editor, and power tools for programmers -- all in the easy-to-follow style that has made this book a classic.
+ *Learning the vi and vim Editors* includes:
+ **A complete introduction to text editing with vi:**
+ * How to move around *vi* in a hurry
+ * Beyond the basics, such as using buffers
+ * *vi's* global search and replacement
+ * Advanced editing, including customizing *vi* and executing Unix commands
+
+
+ **How to make full use of vim:** *Extended text objects and more powerful regular expressions* Multi-window editing and powerful *vim* scripts *How to make full use of the GUI version of* vim *, called* gvim ** *vim's* enhancements for programmers, such as syntax highlighting, folding and extended tags
+ Coverage of three other popular *vi* clones -- *nvi* , *elvis* , and *vile* \-- is also included. You'll find several valuable appendixes, including an alphabetical quick reference to both *vi* and *ex* mode commands for regular *vi* and for *vim* , plus an updated appendix on *vi* and the Internet.
+ Learning either *vi* or *vim* is required knowledge if you use Linux or Unix, and in either case, reading this book is essential. After reading this book, the choice of editor will be obvious for you too.
+ **
+ ### Book Description
+ Text processing at maximum speed and power
+ ### About the Author
+ Arnold Robbins, an Atlanta native, is a professional programmer and technical author. He has been working with Unix systems since 1980, when he was introduced to a PDP-11 running a version of Sixth Edition Unix. His experience also includes multiple commercial Unix systems, from Sun, IBM, HP and DEC. He has been working with GNU/Linux systems since 1996. He likes his Macintosh laptop, but it has been commandeered by one of his daughters.
+ Arnold has also been a heavy awk user since 1987, when he became involved with gawk, the GNU project's version of awk. As a member of the POSIX 1003.2 balloting group, he helped shape the POSIX standard for awk. He is currently the maintainer of gawk and its documentation.
+ O'Reilly has been keeping him busy: He is author and/or coauthor of the bestselling titles: Unix In A Nutshell, Effective awk Programming, sed & awk, Classic Shell Scripting, and several pocket references.
+ Elbert is a professional software engineer and software architect recently finishing a 21-year career in the telcom industry. He wrote a full screen editor in assembler in 1983 as his first professional assignment, and has had special interest in editors since. He loves connecting Unix to anything and once wrote a stream editor program to automate JCL edits for mainframe monthly configurations by streaming mainframeJCL to a stream editor on an RJE connected Unix box.
+ He loves tinkering with everything Unix and considers any environment incomplete without his suite of Unix work-alike tools and the latest version of vim. He is a Unix Shell specialist, writing entire applications with only the shell.
+ His telcom honored him with their highest award for money-saving applications that he authored using a set of mainframe screen-scraping tools he wrote himself. They continue to use those applications today. He was also one of three founding team members that brought web 1.0 to the corporate consciousness in his telco position, and his team featured on the cover of CIO Magazine for their innovative and pioneering works.
+ He also served a brief stint on the original Microsoft NT beta support team in 1992.
+ He loves bicycling, music, and reading. Today he lives in the Chicago area where he occasionally takes on short term projects and works on personal software products.
+ Linda Lamb is a former employee of O'Reilly Media, where she worked in various capacities, including technical writer, editor of technical books, and marketing manager. She also worked on O'Reilly's series of consumer health books, Patient Centered Guides.

Why do you hear your name being mentioned in a conversation that you didn't think you were listening to? What do Ulysses and the credit crunch have in common? Why did Thomas Edison electrocute an elephant in 1916? Why are people whose names begin with J more likely to marry other people whose names begin with J? Why is it so difficult to keep a secret? And how is it possible to get angry at yourself--who, exactly, is mad at whom?<br><br>Taking in brain damage, plane spotting, dating, drugs, beauty, infidelity, synesthesia, criminal law, artificial intelligence, and visual illusions,...

comments: Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.
+
+ Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle--and people in general--has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic.
+
+ To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence--creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.

comments: <p>In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue&#8212;Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is&#8212;she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.<p>During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are&#8212;and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing...

comments: <p><i>Evolving Dharma </i>is the definitive guide to the meditation revolution. Fearless, unorthodox, and irreverent scholar and activist Jay Michaelson shows how meditation and mindfulness have moved from ashrams and self-help groups to classrooms and hospitals, and offers unusually straight talk about the "Big E"-- enlightenment. Michaelson introduces us to maverick brainhackers, postmodern Buddhist monks, and cutting-edge neuroscientists and shares his own stories of months-long silent retreats, powerful mystical experiences, and many pitfalls along the way. <i>Evolving Dharma</i> is a must-read for the next-generation meditator, the spiritually cynical, and the curious adventurer in all of us.<br><br><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

author_sort: Glass, Julia
comments: <p>In this richly detailed novel about the quest for an unknown father, Julia Glass brings new characters together with familiar figures from her first two novels, immersing readers in a panorama that stretches from suburban New Jersey to rural Vermont and ultimately to the tip of Cape Cod.<br> <br> Kit Noonan is an unemployed art historian with twins to help support and a mortgage to pay—and a wife frustrated by his inertia. Raised by a strong-willed, secretive single mother, Kit has never known the identity of his father—a mystery that his wife insists he must solve to move forward with his life. Out of desperation, Kit goes to the mountain retreat of his mothers former husband, Jasper, a take-no-prisoners outdoorsman. There, in the midst of a fierce blizzard, Kit and Jasper confront memories of the bittersweet decade when their families were joined. Reluctantly breaking a long-ago promise, Jasper connects Kit with Lucinda and Zeke Burns, who know the answer hes looking for. Readers of Glasss first novel, <em>Three Junes,</em> will recognize Lucinda as the mother of Malachy, the music critic who died of AIDS. In fact, to fully understand the secrets surrounding his paternity, Kit will travel farther still, meeting Fenno McLeod, now in his late fifties, and Fennos longtime companion, the gregarious Walter Kinderman.<br> <br> <em>And the Dark Sacred Night</em> is an exquisitely memorable tale about the youthful choices that steer our destinies, the necessity of forgiveness, and the risks we take when we face down the shadows from our past. </p> <p>This eBook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.  </p> <p>**</p></html><h3>From Booklist</h3> <p><em>Starred Review</em> Stuck in a nightmare of unpaid bills, dwindling bank accounts, and leaky roofs, unemployed art-history professor Kit Noonan needs a jolt. Convinced that deep-seated identity issues are fueling Kits inertia-inducing depression, his wife urges him to find the identity of his biological father, a fact his otherwise loving mother refuses to divulge. To solve the mystery, Kit embarks on a journey that takes him across the northeastern U.S., starting with a visit to his gruff and outdoorsy stepfathers home, and ending with a revelation that transforms his life in ways he could never imagine. Woven throughout the narrative are flashbacks to key events in Kits history, including the tender and beautifully told story of the relationship between Kits mother and father. Divided into sections written from the perspective of key characters, Glass explores the pain of family secrets, the importance of identity, and the ultimate meaning of family. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Although Glass borrows characters from her National Book Awardwinning Three Junes, it is not necessary to have read that previous book to enjoy this lovely, highly readable, and thought-provoking novel. --Kerri Price </p> <h3>Review</h3> <p>“Winner of the National Book Award for her 2002 debut, <em>Three Junes</em>, Julia Glass takes another sympathetic look at the complexities of contemporary life in this novel about family secrets. . . Examining complicated family relationships among several families whose lives intertwine in unexpected ways, this warm and engaging story about what it means to be a father will appeal to most readers.” —<em>Library Journal</em><br> <br> “Glass explores the pain of family secrets, the importance of identity, and the ultimate meaning of family . . . HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY:<strong> </strong>Although Glass borrows characters from her National Book Awardwinning <em>Three Junes</em>, it is not necessary to have read that previous book to enjoy this lovely, highly readable, and thought-provoking novel.” —<em>Booklist, </em>starred review  </p> <p><strong><em>The Widowers Tale</em><br> </strong>“Beautifully sensitive . . . <em>The Widowers Tale</em> is about the rub between old values and new times . . . In the tradition of <em>Jane Eyre,</em> it builds to a conflagration, a crisis that shakes everyone out of their complacency. But Glass quickly smothers the flames of catastrophe, for her vision is essentially more hopeful than tragic.” —<em>Los Angeles Times</em><br> <br> “A satisfyingly clear-eyed and compassionate view of American entitlement and its fallout . . . [Glass] approaches the ties of kinship with the same joyfully disruptive spirit that animated her previous books.” —<em>The New York Times Book Review</em><br> <br> “A masterful exploration of the secret places of the human heart.” —<em>Richmond Times-Dispatch</em><br> <br> <strong><em>I See You Everywhere</em><br> </strong>“Glass is the Edith Wharton for the twenty-first century.” —<em>Pittsburgh Post-Gazette</em><br> <br> “Rich, intricate, and alive with emotion . . . An honest portrait of sister-love . . . Brave and forgiving.” —<em>The New York Times Book Review</em><br> <br> <strong><em>The Whole World Over</em><br> </strong>“Beautiful and satisfying, chock-full of the gorgeous, heartbreaking stuff that makes life worth living.” —<em>The Rocky Mountain News </em><br> <br> “A voluptuous treat.” —<em>Entertainment Weekly</em><br> <br> <strong><em>Three Junes</em><br> </strong>“Enormously accomplished . . . Rich, absorbing, and full of life.”—<em>The New Yorker</em><br> <br> “Radiant . . . An intimate literary triptych of lives pulled together and torn apart.” —<em>Chicago Tribune</em><br> <br> “Almost threatens to burst with all the life it contains. Glasss ability to illuminate and deepen the mysteries of her characters lives is extraordinary.” —Michael Cunningham, author of <em>The Hours</em></p></html>

comments: **The bestselling author of *This Is Where I Leave You* returns with a hilarious and heart-rending tale about one family's struggle to reconnect.**
+
+ You dont have to look very hard at Drew Silver to see that mistakes have been made. His fleeting fame as the drummer for a one-hit wonder rock band is nearly a decade behind him. He lives in the Versailles, an apartment building filled almost exclusively with divorced men like him, and makes a living playing in wedding bands. His ex-wife, Denise, is about to marry a guy Silver cant quite bring himself to hate. And his Princeton-bound teenage daughter Casey has just confided in him that shes pregnant—because Silver is the one she cares least about letting down.
+ So when he learns that his heart requires emergency, lifesaving surgery, Silver makes the radical decision to refuse the operation, choosing instead to use what little time he has left to repair his relationship with Casey, become a better man, and live in the moment, even if that moment isn't destined to last very long. As his exasperated family looks on, Silver grapples with the ultimate question of whether or not his own life is worth saving.
+ With the wedding looming and both Silver and Casey in crisis, this broken family struggles to come together, only to risk damaging each other even more. *One Last Thing Before I Go* is Jonathan Tropper at his funny, insightful, heartbreaking best.
+ ### Review
+ "Troppers characters are likably zany and fallible, and perhaps more important, funny. *One Last Thing Before I Go* is a poignant story about facing death and celebrating life, even when things seem well beyond repair." --Newsweek/The Daily Beast
+
+ "The richly talented Tropper ( *This Is Where I Leave You* ) has created an acerbic, middle-aged lost soul who will ultimately illuminate the reasons we stick around on this lopsided planet despite significant temptation to let it go. Readers will love Silver and want to throttle him in equal measure. Eminently quotable, hilariously funny, and emotionally draining, this arresting tour de force will entertain well after the book is done." - *Library Journal* (starred review)
+
+ “…a bristling, witty tale of woe that'll make you appreciate whatever good things, no matter how few, have come your way.” *Entertainment Weekly* on *One Last Thing Before I Go*
+
+ "Tropper entertainingly examines the angst of middle-age masculinity." - *Kirkus*
+ "Tropper is a master of the mid-life male coming-of-age story, and his latest is full of the charm and wit his readers cherish." - *Booklist*
+ “Its amazing what can happen in the hands of the casually brilliant author. . . . Read and weep with laughter.”
+ — *Entertainment Weekly*
+
+ “Tropper gets men. He's a more sincere, insightful version of Nick Hornby, that other master of male psyche.”
+ — *USA* *Today* on *This is Where I Leave You*
+
+ “A tender and unexpectedly hilarious take on the messiness of family life.”
+ — *People StyleWatch*
+
+ “Artful and brilliant, filled with colorful narratives and witty dialogue.”
+ — Associated Press on *This is Where I Leave You*
+
+ “This is a beautiful novel about men -- their lust and rage and sweetness.”
+ — *The Washington Post* , on *This is Where I Leave You*
+
+ “Tropper… [proves] his ability to create touchingly human characters and a deliciously page turning story.”
+ — *Publishers Weekly* on *This is Where I Leave You*
+
+ ### About the Author
+ **Jonathan Tropper** is the *New York Times* bestselling author of five previous novels; *Plan B* , *The Book of Joe* , *Everything Changes* , *How To Talk to a Widower* , and *This Is Where I Leave You*.

comments: <p>The Art of UNIX Programming poses the belief that understanding the unwritten UNIX engineering tradition and mastering its design patterns will help programmers of all stripes to become better programmers. This book attempts to capture the engineering wisdom and design philosophy of the UNIX, Linux, and Open Source software development community as it has evolved over the past three decades, and as it is applied today by the most experienced programmers. Eric Raymond offers the next generation of "hackers" the unique opportunity to learn the connection between UNIX philosophy and practice through careful case studies of the very best UNIX/Linux programs.</p> <p>**</p><h3>Amazon.com Review</h3> <p>Unix ranks among the great engineering accomplishments of the last half of the twentieth century, and its heir--Linux--seems already imposing and still on its way to achieving its full potential. Eric S. Raymond argues in <em>The Art of UNIX Programming</em> that the excellence of Unix derives as much from the fact that it was (and continues to be) a community effort as from the fact that a lot of smart people have worked to design and build it. Raymond, best known as the author of the open-source manifesto <em>The Cathedral and the Bazaar</em>, says in his preface that this is a "why-to" book, rather than a "how-to" book. It aims to show new Unix programmers why they should work under the old "hacker ethic"--embracing the principles of good software design for its own sake and of code-sharing. </p> <p>That said, a great deal of valuable practical information appears in this book. Very little of it is in the form of code; most of the practical material takes the form of case studies and discussions of aspects of Unix, all aimed at determining why particular design characteristics are good. In many cases, the people who did the work in the first place make guest appearances and explain their thinking--an invaluable resource. This book is for the deep-thinking software developer in Unix (and perhaps Linux in particular). It shows how to fit into the long and noble tradition, and how to make the software work <em>right</em>. <em>--David Wall</em></p> <p><strong>Topics covered</strong>: Why Unix (the term being defined to include Linux) is the way it is, and the people who made it that way. Commentary from Ken Thompson, Steve Johnson, Brian Kernighan, and David Korn enables readers to understand the thought processes of the creators of Unix. </p> <h3>From the Back Cover</h3> <p><em>"Reading this book has filled a gap in my education. I feel a sense of completion, understand that UNIX is really a style of community. Now I get it, at least I get it one level deeper than I ever did before. This book came at a perfect moment for me, a moment when I shifted from visualizing programs as things to programs as the shadows cast by communities. From this perspective, Eric makes UNIX make perfect sense."</em> <br> --Kent Beck, author of <em>Extreme Programming Explained, Test Driven Development</em>, and <em>Contributing to Eclipse</em></p> <p><em>"A delightful, fascinating read, and the lessons in problem-solvng are essential to every programmer, on any OS."</em> <br> --Bruce Eckel, author of <em>Thinking in Java</em> and<em> Thinking in C++</em></p> <p><strong>Writing better software: 30 years of UNIX development wisdom</strong></p> <p>In this book, five years in the making, the author encapsulates three decades of unwritten, hard-won software engineering wisdom. Raymond brings together for the first time the philosophy, design patterns, tools, culture, and traditions that make UNIX home to the world's best and most innovative software, and shows how these are carried forward in Linux and today's open-source movement. Using examples from leading open-source projects, he shows UNIX and Linux programmers how to apply this wisdom in building software that's more elegant, more portable, more reusable, and longer-lived.</p> <p><strong>Raymond incorporates commentary from thirteen UNIX pioneers:</strong></p> <ul> <li><strong>Ken Thompson</strong>, the inventor of UNIX.</li> <li><strong>Ken Arnold</strong>, part of the group that created the 4BSD UNIX releases and co-author of <em>The Java Programming Language</em>.</li> <li><strong>Steven M. Bellovin</strong>, co-creator of Usenet and co-author of <em>Firewalls and Internet Security</em>.</li> <li><strong>Stuart Feldman</strong>, a member of the Bell Labs UNIX development group and the author of <em>make</em> and <em>f77</em>. </li> <li><strong>Jim Gettys and Keith Packard</strong>, principal architects of the X windowing system.</li> <li><strong>Steve Johnson</strong>, author of <em>yacc</em> and of the Portable C Compiler.</li> <li><strong>Brian Kernighan</strong>, co-author of <em>The C Programming Language, The UNIX Programming Environment, The Practice of Programming,</em> and of the <em>awk</em> programming language.</li> <li><strong>David Korn</strong>, creator of the <em>korn</em> shell and author of <em>The New Korn Shell Command and Programming Language</em>.</li> <li><strong>Mike Lesk</strong>, a member of the Bell Labs development group and author of the <em>ms</em> macro package, the <em>tbl</em> and <em>refer</em> tools,<em>lex</em> and <em>UUCP</em>.</li> <li><strong>Doug McIlroy</strong>, Director of the Bell Labs research group where UNIX was born and inventor of the UNIX pipe.</li> <li><strong>Marshall Kirk McKusick</strong>, developer of the 4.2BSD fast filesystem and a leader of the 4.3BSD and 4.4BSD teams.</li> <li><strong>Henry Spencer</strong>, a leader among early UNIX developers, who created <em>getopt</em>, the first open-source string library, and a regular-expression engine used in 4.4BSD.</li> </ul></html>

By turns hilarious and deeply moving, Jennifer Finney Boylan explores the territory that lies between men and women, examines changing friendships, and rejoices in the redeeming power of family. Told in Boylan's fresh voice, <i>She's Not There</i> is about a person bearing and finally revealing a complex secret. Through her clear eyes, <i>She's Not There</i> provides a new window on the confounding process of accepting our true selves.<br><br>"Probably no book I've read in recent years has made me so question my basic assumptions about both the centrality and the permeability of gender, and made me recognize myself in a situation I've never known and have never faced . . .

comments: <p>The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called <i>Le Cirque des R&ecirc;ves</i>, and it is only open at night. <br><br> But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway--a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love--a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands. <br><br>True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus...

comments: What finer way for Alexander the Great to honor his old tutor Aristotle than to send him an actual Indian elephant.
+ After capturing a magnificent specimen from an Indian ruler, Alexander tasks Leon of Atrax, a cavalry commander, to deliver the animal to Aristotle in Athens.
+ Leon leads a motley crew of companions (and the elephant) from India to Greece, and in the process encounter all sorts of dangers and adventures while completing the long and arduous journey.
+ “An amazing narrative vehicle for the display of ... a fairly complete composite of the life and times of which the author writes.”—The Chicago Daily Tribune
+ "By hybridizing a Middle-Eastern travelogue with an Alexandrine comedy of manners, the author has produced a specimen only slightly less rare then elephants in Westchesterto wit, a historical novel with a sense of humor.”—The New York Times

comments: <p>Magical realism, lyrical prose, and the pain and passion of human love haunt this hypnotic generational saga. Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava&#8212;in all other ways a normal girl&#8212;is born with the wings of a bird. In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naive to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the summer solstice celebration. That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava's quest and her family's saga build to a devastating crescendo. First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically,...

She wants to cover the hard-hitting issues, like world affairs and politics, but does she have the smarts for it? Thankfully, her overbearing and math-minded boss, Mr. Seki, is here to teach her how to analyze her stories with a mathematical eye.
+ In *The Manga Guide to Calculus* , you'll follow along with Noriko as she learns that calculus is more than just a class designed to weed out would-be science majors. You'll see that calculus is a useful way to understand the patterns in physics, economics, and the world around us, with help from real-world examples like probability, supply and demand curves, the economics of pollution, and the density of Shochu (a Japanese liquor).
+ Mr. Seki teaches Noriko how to:
+ * Use differentiation to understand a function's rate of change
+ * Apply the fundamental theorem of calculus, and grasp the relationship between a function's derivative and its integral
+ * Integrate and differentiate trigonometric and other complicated functions
+ * Use multivariate calculus and partial differentiation to deal with tricky functions
+ * Use Taylor Expansions to accurately imitate difficult functions with polynomials
+
+
+ Whether you're struggling through a calculus course for the first time or you just need a painless refresher, you'll find what you're looking for in *The Manga Guide to Calculus*.

comments: <p>On June 9, 1865, while traveling by train to London with his secret mistress, 53-year-old Charles Dickens--at the height of his powers and popularity, the most famous and successful novelist in the world and perhaps in the history of the world--hurtled into a disaster that changed his life forever<b>. </b><br>Did Dickens begin living a dark double life after the accident? Were his nightly forays into the worst slums of <ST1:CITY w:st="on">London and his deepening obsession with corpses, crypts, murder, opium dens, the use of lime pits to dissolve bodies, and a hidden subterranean <ST1:PLACE w:st="on"><ST1:CITY w:st="on">London mere research . . . or something more terrifying?<br>Just as he did in <i>The Terror</i>, Dan Simmons draws impeccably from history to create a gloriously engaging and terrifying narrative. Based on the historical details of Charles Dickens's life and narrated by Wilkie Collins (Dickens's friend, frequent collaborator, and Salieri-style secret rival), D...

comments: <p><b><i>The Circle</i> is the exhilarating new novel from Dave Eggers, best-selling author of <i>A Hologram for the King, </i>a finalist for the National Book Award.</b><br> <br> When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world's most powerful internet company, she feels she's been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users' personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. As Mae tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company's modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night, there are famous musicians playing on the lawn, there are athletic activities and clubs and brunches, and even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO.

comments: <p>For many, Kim Gordon, vocalist, bassist and founding member of Sonic Youth, has always been the epitome of cool. </p><p>Sonic Youth is one of the most influential and successful bands to emerge from the post-punk New York scene, and their legacy continues to loom large over the landscape of indie rock and American pop culture. Almost as celebrated as the band's defiantly dissonant sound was the marriage between Gordon and her husband, fellow Sonic Youth founder and lead guitarist Thurston Moore. So when Matador Records released a statement in the fall of 2011 announcing that&#8212;after twenty-seven years&#8212;the two were splitting, fans were devastated. In the middle of a crazy world, they'd seemed so solid. </p><p>What did this mean? What comes next? What came before?</p><p>In Girl in a Band, the famously reserved superstar speaks candidly about her past and the future. From her childhood in the sunbaked suburbs of Southern California, growing up with a mentally ill sibling...

comments: <p>From <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author Kate White comes a riveting psychological suspense in which a media star must battle a malevolent enemy who may be disturbingly close to her.</p><p>After losing her on-air job two years ago, television host Robin Trainer has fought her way back and now she's hotter than ever. With her new show climbing in the ratings and her first book a bestseller, she's being dubbed a media double threat.</p><p>But suddenly, things begin to go wrong. Small incidents at first: a nasty note left in her purse; her photo shredded. But the obnoxious quickly becomes threatening when the foundation the makeup artist uses burns Robin's face. It wasn't an accident--someone had deliberately doctored with the product.</p><p>An adversary with a dark agenda wants to hurt Robin, and the clues point to someone she works with every day. While she frantically tries to put the pieces together and unmask this hidden foe, it becomes terrifyingly clear that the...
