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?

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.

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).

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.

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.&lt;p&gt;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."&lt;p&gt;His latest satiric triumph, &lt;I&gt; Carpe Jugulum,&lt;/I&gt; 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.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;In &lt;i&gt;Unusual Uses for Olive Oil&lt;/i&gt;, von Igelfeld experiences a series of new adventures. First, he finds that his academic rival Detlev-Amadeus Unterholzer has been winning undeserved recognition, a situation that must be addressed. Then von Igelfeld stumbles toward a romance with Frau Benz, a charming widow who owns her very own Schloss and a fleet of handsome cars--that is, until a &lt;i&gt;faux pas&lt;/i&gt; lands him on the curb. 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...</description>

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.

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.

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 &amp; Mr. Norrell is a tour de force that has captured the imagination of readers worldwide.</description>

*InterWorld* tells the story of Joey Harker, a very average kid who discovers that his world is only one of a trillion alternate earths. Some of these earths are ruled by magic. Some are ruled by science. All are at war.
Joey teams up with alternate versions of himself from an array of these worlds. Together, the army of Joeys must battle evil magicians Lord Dogknife and Lady Indigo to keep the balance of power between all the earths stable. Teens--and tweens and adults--who obsessively read the His Dark Materials and Harry Potter series will be riveted by *InterWorld* and its sequel, *The Silver Dream*.

It remains the largest unsolved art heist in history, and Claire Roth, a struggling young artist, is about to discover that there's more to this crime than meets the eye.
Claire makes her living reproducing famous works of art for a popular online retailer. Desperate to improve her situation, she lets herself be lured into a Faustian bargain with Aiden Markel, a powerful gallery owner. She agrees to forge a painting—one of the Degas masterpieces stolen from the Gardner Museum—in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But when the long-missing Degas painting—the one that had been hanging for one hundred years at the Gardner—is delivered to Claire's studio, she begins to suspect that it may itself be a forgery.
Claire's search for the truth about the painting's origins leads her into a labyrinth of...

They run into Throckmorton P. Ruddygore, a strange wizard who informs them that they are going to die in nineteen minutes and eighteen seconds.
But they also have a choice. They can abandon the current world by taking a ferryboat across the Sea of Dreams to a new life in a new world, full of magic, fairies and wonder.
But along with all its wonders, the new world is also the site of an ancient battle still being fought between the forces of Evil and Good, and the forces of Hell threaten to unleash perpetual darkness.
Joe and Marge not only need their wits to survive in this unpredictable and dangerous world, but must somehow help prevent the oncoming Armageddon.

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).
This book will teach you to do just that. With dozens of case studies, interviews and examplesincluding the author, investor and entrepreneur James Altuchers own heartbreaking and inspiring storyChoose Yourself illuminates your personal path to building a bright, new world out of the wreckage of the old.

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.

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...

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.</description>

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. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley's life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive, cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordova--a man who hasn't been seen in public for more than thirty years.&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; For McGrath, another death connected to this seemingly cursed family dynasty seems more than just a coincidence. Though much has been written about Cordova's dark and unsettling films, very little is known about the man himself.&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; Driven by...</description>

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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;An illuminated secret panel &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;A hallway lighting system with a waterfall effect &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;A crazy lightshow &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Visual effects gizmos like a Moire wheel and shadow puppets &lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;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. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Whether youre new to electronics, or you just want to see what you can do with an AVR outside of an Arduino, &lt;em&gt;Practical&lt;/em&gt; &lt;em&gt;AVR&lt;/em&gt; &lt;em&gt;Microcontrollers&lt;/em&gt; is the book for you.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</description>

High-profile projects such as the Linux Kernel, Mozilla, Gnome, and Ruby on Rails are now using Distributed Version Control Systems (DVCS) instead of the old stand-bys of CVS or Subversion.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Git is a modern, fast, DVCS. But understanding how it fits into your development can be a daunting task without an introduction to the new concepts. Whether you're just starting out as a professional programmer or are an old hand, this book will get you started using Git in this new distributed world. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Whether you're making the switch from a traditional centralized version control system or are a new programmer just getting started, this book prepares you to start using Git in your everyday programming.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Pragmatic Version Control Using Git&lt;/em&gt; starts with an overview of version control systems, and shows how being distributed enables you to work more efficiently in our increasingly mobile society. It then progresses through the basics necessary to get started using Git.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;You'll get a thorough overview of how to take advantage of Git. By the time you finish this book you'll have a firm grounding in how to use Git, both by yourself and as part of a team.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Learn how to use how to use Git to protect all the pieces of your project&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Work collaboratively in a distributed environment&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Learn how to use Git's cheap branches to streamline your development&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Install and administer a Git server to share your repository&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;&lt;h3&gt;Review&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;"As I expected, this book upholds the high standards set by the CVS and Subversion editions of this book, and is a great introductory read to get anyone up and running with Git!"&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;- Tony Cappellini, Reviewer, Bay Area Python Interest Group &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;"I give this book a thumbs-up, because even though there is the free Git Community Book, Wiki, and other free documentation,&lt;strong&gt; Pragmatic Version Control Using Git&lt;/strong&gt; is the best-organized and most thorough."&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Carla Schroder, Linux Today&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;h3&gt;About the Author&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;Travis Swicegood is an open-source developer. Literally, he's paid to work on and help maintain open-source software at the Texas Tribune in Austin, Texas. Two-time Pragmatic Bookshelf author, Travis constantly has his ear to the ground listening for new technologies.

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! &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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. &lt;em&gt;Programming Your Home&lt;/em&gt; is written for smartphone programmers, web developers, technology tinkerers, and anyone who enjoys building cutting-edge, Do-It-Yourself electronic projects. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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! &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;What You Need:&lt;/strong&gt; &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;To get the most out of &lt;em&gt;Programming Your Home&lt;/em&gt;, 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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;&lt;h3&gt;Amazon.com Review&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;h2&gt;Top Five Home Automation Tips&lt;/h2&gt; &lt;ol&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Start Small.&lt;/strong&gt; 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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Search YouTube.&lt;/strong&gt; 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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Ask an Engineer.&lt;/strong&gt; 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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Be Safe.&lt;/strong&gt; 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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Have Fun!&lt;/strong&gt; 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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ol&gt; &lt;h3&gt;Review&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;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! -- &lt;em&gt;A. Binstock, Dr Dobbs&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;"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."&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;—Michael Bengtson, Consultant &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;"With this book, Mike Riley celebrates the Arduino microcontroller in a way that both beginning and advanced home automation hobbyists will enjoy."&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;—Sven Davies, Vice President of Applications &lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</description>

Arch Linux tries to be easy and user-friendly for developers and enthusiasts who are willing to customize their system to the maximum.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;"Arch Linux Environment Setup How-to" will give you the step-up into the Arch Linux world. It will guide you through the different ways of installation and how to use the Arch Linux specific software. This book only aims to get you on your way; the true experience is completely up to you.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;You will be guided through the installation process so that basic configuration of an Arch Linux system will become second nature. Installing and removing packages from the system will become clear as water and even shiny new technology, like system, is made simple to understand. When you have a DIY mentality and like to customize your system, this book is the perfect launch towards a great Arch Linux experience.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This book encourages you to dig deeper into the fascinating world of Linux.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;What you will learn from this book&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Install Arch using the official iso or the archboot iso&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Configure the system and configure it with the packages you need and want&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Boot and manage services using initscripts or systems&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Install with official iso or archboostiso&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Configure the GUI and xorg&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Approach&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Each task expresses a specific task for setting up an Arch Linux environment. The recipe as a solution is a carefully organized set of instructions to perform the task as efficiently as possible and a discussion on how to apply the solution in different situations. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Who this book is written for&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;"Arch Linux Environment Setup" How to is for people wanting to dig deep into a Linux system. By the end of the book you will have basic knowledge how a Linux system is built up, how it boots and a general idea of how it is working. The book also assumes you already know what partitioning is and if you need dual booting you already have some experience with that. For people only trying out Arch Linux the author would suggest following this guide inside a virtual machine.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;&lt;h3&gt;About the Author&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Ike Devolder&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Ike Devolder started playing around with Linux in 1999 and became a full-time Linux user in 2002. At that time his preferred distribution was Slackware, which he used for many years without complaints. In 2005 he rediscovered Arch Linux (he had already played around with it in the past) and started considering switching all his desktops from Slackware to Arch Linux. In 2006 it was done, with his laptop and desktop both running smoothly on Arch Linux, and since then he has gradually stopped being a distrohopper.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;These days Ike is a Web Developer for Studio Emma in Belgium. He uses Arch Linux in his day job too.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</description>

The authors of *Arduino and Kinect Projects* will show you how to create 10 amazing, creative projects, from simple to complex. You'll also find out how to incorporate Processing in your project design―a language very similar to the Arduino language.
The ten projects are carefully designed to build on your skills at every step. Starting with the Arduino and Kinect equivalent of "Hello, World," the authors will take you through a diverse range of projects that showcase the huge range of possibilities that open up when Kinect and Arduino are combined.
* Gesture-based Remote Control. Control devices and home appliances with hand gestures.
* Kinect-networked Puppet. Play with a physical puppet remotely using your whole body.
* Mood Lamps. Build your own set of responsive, gesture controllable LED lamps.
* Drawing Robot. Control a drawing robot using a Kinect-based tangible table.
* Remote-controlled Vehicle. Use your body gestures to control a smart vehicle.
* Biometric Station. Use the Kinect for biometric recognition and checking Body Mass Indexes.
* 3D Modeling Interface. Learn how to use the Arduino LilyPad to build a wearable 3D modelling interface.
* 360º Scanner. Build a turntable scanner and scan any object 360º using only one Kinect.
* Delta Robot. Build and control your own fast and accurate parallel robot.

**Lance Flavell's** *Beginning Blender, Second Edition* will give you the skills to start shaping new worlds and virtual characters, and perhaps lead you down a new professional path. Beginning Blender covers the latest version of Blender in-depth. The book starts with the creation of simple figures using basic modeling and sculpting. It then teaches you how to bridge from modeling to animation, and from scene setup to texture creation and rendering, lighting, rigging, and ultimately, full animation. You will create and mix your own movie scenes, and you'll learn how to use cool new features like camera tracking and motion tracking. You will even learn the basics of games logic and how to deal with games physics.
Whether you are new to modeling, animation, and game design, or whether you are simply new to Blender, this book will show you everything you need to know to get your 3D projects underway.

After an introduction to the Arduino board, you'll end up learning some skills to surprise yourself. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Overview&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Use Arduino boards in your own electronic hardware &amp;amp; software projects&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Sense the world by using several sensory components with your Arduino boards&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Create tangible and reactive interfaces with your computer&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Discover a world of creative wiring and coding fun!&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;In Detail&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Physical computing allows us to build interactive physical systems by using software &amp;amp; hardware in order to sense and respond to the real world. C Programming for Arduino will show you how to harness powerful capabilities like sensing, feedbacks, programming and even wiring and developing your own autonomous systems.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;C Programming for Arduino contains everything you need to directly start wiring and coding your own electronic project. Youll learn C and how to code several types of firmware for your Arduino, and then move on to design small typical systems to understand how handling buttons, leds, LCD, network modules and much more.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;After running through C/C++ for the Arduino, you'll learn how to control your software by using real buttons and distance sensors and even discover how you can use your Arduino with the Processing framework so that they work in unison. Advanced coverage includes using Wi-Fi networks and batteries to make your Arduino-based hardware more mobile and flexible without wires. If you want to learn how to build your own electronic devices with powerful open-source technology, then this book is for you.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;What you will learn from this book&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Understand what an Arduino board is&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Sense the world through a variety of digital inputs&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Feel the world with analog sensors&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Design a visual output feedback system&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Use Max6 and Processing with Arduino&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Connect your Arduino to wired and wireless networks&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Add GPS localisation modules to your Arduino&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Approach&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Written as a practical Packt book brimming with engaging examples, C Programming for Arduino will help those new to the amazing open source electronic platform so that they can start developing some great projects from the very start.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Who this book is written for&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This book is great for people who want to learn how to design &amp;amp; build their own electronic devices. From interaction design art school students to the do-it-yourself hobbyist, or even simply people who want to learn electronics, this book will help by adding a new way to design autonomous but connected devices.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;&lt;h3&gt;About the Author&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Julien Bayle&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Julien Bayle owns his Master Degree of biology &amp;amp; computer sciences in 2000. After several years in pure IT System Design, he founded Design the Media early 2010 in order to provide his own courses, training &amp;amp; tools for art fields. As a digital artist, he designed some huge new media art installations, like the permanent exhibition of La Maison des Cinématographies de la Méditerranée (Château de la Buzine) in Marseille, France, in 2011. He also works as a new media technology consultant for some private &amp;amp; public entities. As an A/V live performer, he plays his cold electronic music from New York to Marseille, where he actually lives. Arduino framework is one of his first electronic hardware studies early 2005 and he designed the famous protodeck controller with some opensource framework too. As an art &amp;amp; technology teacher, also certified by Ableton in 2010, he teaches a lot of courses about the digital audio workstation named Ableton Live, about the real-time graphical programming framework Max6 and also about Processing and Arduino.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;As a minimalist digital artist, he works at the crossroads of sound, visual and data. He explores relationships between sounds and visuals through his immersive A/V installations, his live performances and his released music. His work, often described as "complex, intrigating and relevant", tries to break classical codes to bring audience a new vision of our world through his pure digital and real-time generated stimuli.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;He's deeply involved in the open source community and loves to share and provide workshops and masterclasses online and on-site too. His personal website is &lt;strong&gt;http://julienbayle.net&lt;/strong&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</description>

This book is the perfect primer that takes you from language basics to creating responsive applications. Enjoy. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Overview&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Learn CoffeeScript, a small and elegant language that compiles to JavaScript and will make your life as a web developer better.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Explore the syntax of the language and see how it improves and enhances JavaScript.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Build three example applications in CoffeeScript step by step.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;In Detail&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;CoffeeScript is a young but popular language that makes web programming fun and more productive. It compiles to JavaScript and unleashes its powerful features while not straying too far from the language. It's become one of the most popular languages on Github and is being used for both browser and server side programming.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;"CoffeeScript programming with jQuery, Rails, and Node.js" will not only teach you the CoffeeScript language but also show you how it's being used by professional programmers with the latest web technologies.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This book will teach you the basics of the language, focusing particularly on how it improves on JavaScript. It then focuses on building real life projects in CoffeeScript using jQuery, Rails, and Node.js.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;We look at CoffeeScript as a language that takes the power of JavaScript and presents it in an elegant and concise syntax. We will then see how we can use its power to write beautiful and short programs for various environments and how it complements the latest and greatest web frameworks.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;CoffeeScript programming with jQuery, Rails, and Node.js is all you need to become well versed with this great language and set you on your way to using it to write web applications&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;What you will learn from this book&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;The basics of the language and how it compares to JavaScript&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;CoffeeScript's powerful class syntax&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Installing CoffeeScript on Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux using Node.js&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Configuring CoffeeScript for browser applications&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;The basics of jQuery and using it with CoffeeScript&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Using localStorage in browser-based applications&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Two approaches to write CoffeeScript in Rails applications&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Creating responsive web applications using WebSocket&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Approach&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;It's a quick guide for programming CoffeeScript and then diving into programming with Rails, jQuery, and Node.js. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Who this book is written for&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This book is for web developers who would like to learn programming with CoffeScript. It is also for developers who have some experience in JavaScript and are curious to learn CoffeScript and build applications with it.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;&lt;h3&gt;About the Author&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Michael Erasmus&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Michael Erasmus has been developing software for over 10 years. He has been a C# programmer for quite a few of them, but has luckily been enlightened enough to become an open source zealot during the last few years. The most loved tools in his utility belt are Ruby and Rails, Linux, MongoDB, Vim, jQuery, and CoffeeScript.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;He's interested in all manner of science and technology, but tends to dwell on things such as elegant and eccentric programming languages, machine learning and statistics, web development, Internet startups, and civic hacking.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;He is currently working at 22seven.com, building a service that will help change people's behavior and do more with the money they have.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;When he's not sitting in front of the computer, he likes pulling faces to amuse his baby son, apologizing to his wonderful wife for sitting in front of a computer all day, or arguing endlessly with friends, family, colleagues, and random strangers. He lives near the beach in Muizenberg, Cape Town and loves it.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</description>

There can be so much information available that you can't even decide where to start. Or worse, you start down the path of learning and quickly discover too many concepts, commands, and nuances that aren't explained. This kind of experience is frustrating and leaves you with more questions than answers. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Linux for Beginners* doesn't make any assumptions about your background or knowledge of Linux. You need no prior knowledge to benefit from this book. You will be guided step by step using a logical and systematic approach. As new concepts, commands, or jargon are encountered they are explained in plain language, making it easy for anyone to understand. &lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;Here is what you will learn by reading &lt;em&gt;Linux for Beginners&lt;/em&gt;:&lt;br&gt; *&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;How to get access to a Linux server if you don't already.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;What a Linux distribution is and which one to choose.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;What software is needed to connect to Linux from Mac and Windows computers. Screenshots included.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;What SSH is and how to use it, including creating and using SSH keys.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;The file system layout of Linux systems and where to find programs, configurations, and documentation.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;The basic Linux commands you'll use most often.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;Creating, renaming, moving, and deleting directories.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;Listing, reading, creating, editing, copying, and deleting files.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;Exactly how permissions work and how to decipher the most cryptic Linux permissions with ease.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;How to use the nano, vi, and emacs editors.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;Two methods to search for files and directories.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;How to compare the contents of files.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;What pipes are, why they are useful, and how to use them.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;How to compress files to save space and make transferring data easy.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;How and why to redirect input and output from applications.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;How to customize your shell prompt.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;How to be efficient at the command line by using aliases, tab completion, and your shell history.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;How to schedule and automate jobs using cron.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;How to switch users and run processes as others.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt; &lt;p&gt;Where to go for even more in-depth coverage on each topic.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;*What you learn in "Linux for Beginners" applies to any Linux environment including Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, RedHat, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Slackware, and more. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Scroll up, click the Buy Now With 1 Click button and get started learning Linux today! &lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</description>

Don't know JavaScript? That's where &lt;em&gt;HTML5 Programming with JavaScript For Dummies&lt;/em&gt; comes in. Rather than walking you through JavaScript as a programming language, it approaches JavaScript as a tool to help you enhance web pages.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Helps web designers and programmers tap the full power of HTML5 by leveraging JavaScript, even if they have no prior knowledge of JavaScript&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Enables readers to produce modern websites with today's technology essentials: portability to mobile devices, animation, the use of Libraries, the Canvas component, and more&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Emphasizes practical uses and offers many short examples for illustration&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;Discover basic to complex ways to use JavaScript programming syntax to harness the full power of HTML5 and CSS3.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;&lt;h3&gt;From the Back Cover&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;Learn to:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Build dynamic pages using JavaScript with HTML&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Create websites with greater interactivity&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Use animation, libraries, the canvas element, and more&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Harness the power of HTML5&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;Learn to use today's top tools&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;and create cross-platform&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;applications for all devices!&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Get the inside track on creating cool applications that work on almost any browser and device! Here's how to use HTML5 and JavaScript to bring your ideas to life, with all examples tested on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Learn to "speak" JavaScript, use libraries and templates, and take advantage of every trick that smart developers use to make life easier.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Meet the players — discover what JavaScript is, how it works, and how JavaScript and HTML5 complement each other&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Everything's an object — understand the objects and variables used by JavaScript and learn to use standard objects&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Essential functions — organize tasks, perform them, and manage repetitive tasks with JavaScript functions&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;You and your user — make your application interactive using the Document Object Model, handle events, and build enhanced HTML5 forms&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;The next step — create even more robust applications by extending JavaScript with XML and AJAX&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;Open the book and find:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Why JavaScript is not Java's cousin&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Information about web hosting&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Tips on working with text and arrays&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;The standard JavaScript objects&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;How JavaScript makes decisions&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Ways to handle errors&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Reasons for using CSS with your applications&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;How iQuery and jQuery UI can make JavaScript easier&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;h3&gt;About the Author&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;John Paul Mueller&lt;/strong&gt; has written both certification and programming books covering C#, Java, Windows programming, and VBA. He is also a skilled technical editor and has contributed articles to periodicals including &lt;em&gt;Visual Basic Developer&lt;/em&gt; and &lt;em&gt;SQL Server Professional&lt;/em&gt;.

It lets you target the largest number of devices and browsers with the least amount of effort. Working with the latest technologies is always fun and with a rapidly growing mobile market, it is a new and exciting place to be.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;"Learn HTML5 by Creating Fun Games" takes you through the journey of learning HTML5 right from setting up the environment to creating fully-functional games. It will help you explore the basics while you work through the whole book with the completion of each game.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;"Learn HTML5 by Creating Fun Games" takes a very friendly approach to teaching fun, silly games for the purpose of giving you a thorough grounding in HTML5. The book has only as much theory as it has to, often in tip boxes, with most of the information explaining how to create HTML5 canvas games. You will be assisted with lots of simple steps with screenshots building towards silly but addictive games.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;The book introduces you to HTML5 by helping you understand the setup and the underlying environment. As you start building your first game that is a typography game, you understand the significance of elements used in game development such as input types, web forms, and so on.We will see how to write a modern browser-compatible code while creating a basic Jelly Wobbling Game. Each game introduces you to an advanced topic such as vector graphics, native audio manipulation, and dragging-and-dropping. In the later section of the book, you will see yourself developing the famous snake game using requestAnimationFrame along with the canvas API, and enhancing it further with web messaging, web storage, and local storage. The last game of this book, a 2D Space shooter game, will then help you understand mobile design considerations.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Approach&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;By teaching HTML5 by developing exciting games, the reader will see concrete applications for each of the concepts, and will also have a powerful deliverable at the end of each chapter a fully functional game. We learn the various concepts using very abstract examples how to model animals, foods, or fictitious machines. This makes learning and understanding a lot easier, and much more enjoyable.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Who this book is for&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;If you are are looking to get a good grounding in how to use the new awesome technology that is HTML5, this book is for you. Basic knowledge of HTML and/or HTML5 is welcome, but optional. The book is a friendly and exciting reference for beginners.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;&lt;h3&gt;About the Author&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Rodrigo Silveira&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Rodrigo Silveira is a web engineer at Deseret Digital Media. His responsibilities include back-end system development, tools, and maintenance, front-end application development and design, and more recently, he's been involved in mobile development of various products on the Android platform.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;He received his Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science from Brigham Young University, Idaho, as well as an Associate's Degree in Business Management from LDS Business College in Salt Lake City, Utah.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;His fascination for web development began in his early teenage years, and his skills grew as he discovered the power of a library subscription, a curious and willing mind, and supportive parents and friends. Today Rodrigo balances his time between the three great passions of his life—his family, software development, and video games (with the last two usually being mingled together).&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</description>

This step by step course needs little prior JavaScript knowledge so is suitable for beginners and more seasoned developers alike. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Overview&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;An introduction to jQuery that requires minimal programming experience&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Detailed solutions to specific client-side problems&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Revised and updated version of this popular jQuery book&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;In Detail&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;What you will learn from this book&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Create interactive elements for your web designs&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Learn how to create the best user interface for your web applications&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Use selectors in a variety of ways to get anything you want from a page&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Make things happen on your webpages with events&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Add flair to your actions with a variety of animation effects&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Discover the new features available in jQuery in this third update of this popular jQuery book&lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Approach&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Who this book is written for&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Jonathan Chaffer&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;He lives in Grand Rapids with his wife, Jennifer.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;&lt;h3&gt;About the Author&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Karl Swedberg&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</description>

<title>Learning the Vi and Vim Editors</title>

<guid isPermaLink="false">68e38423-1543-4330-ada0-80714b1985d2</guid>
<description>&lt;dl&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Author&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;Robbins, Arnold &amp; Hannah, Elbert&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Formats&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;pdf&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Identifiers&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;amazon:B005EI85BE&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Languages&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;eng&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Pubdate&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;2008-07-14T18:00:00-06:00&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Series index&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;1.0&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Size&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;7633568&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Tags&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;design, computers, vim&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Title&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;Learning the Vi and Vim Editors&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Id&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;127&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;/dl&gt;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.

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 &amp; 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 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?&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;Taking in brain damage, plane spotting, dating, drugs, beauty, infidelity, synesthesia, criminal law, artificial intelligence, and visual illusions,...</description>

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.

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&amp;#8212;she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.&lt;p&gt;During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are&amp;#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...</description>

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. &lt;i&gt;Evolving Dharma&lt;/i&gt; is a must-read for the next-generation meditator, the spiritually cynical, and the curious adventurer in all of us.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;i&gt;From the Trade Paperback edition.&lt;/i&gt;</description>

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, &lt;em&gt;Three Junes,&lt;/em&gt; 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.&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; &lt;em&gt;And the Dark Sacred Night&lt;/em&gt; 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. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This eBook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.  &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;&lt;h3&gt;From Booklist&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Starred Review&lt;/em&gt; 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 &lt;/p&gt; &lt;h3&gt;Review&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;“Winner of the National Book Award for her 2002 debut, &lt;em&gt;Three Junes&lt;/em&gt;, 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.” —&lt;em&gt;Library Journal&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; “Glass explores the pain of family secrets, the importance of identity, and the ultimate meaning of family . . . HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY:&lt;strong&gt; &lt;/strong&gt;Although Glass borrows characters from her National Book Awardwinning &lt;em&gt;Three Junes&lt;/em&gt;, it is not necessary to have read that previous book to enjoy this lovely, highly readable, and thought-provoking novel.” —&lt;em&gt;Booklist, &lt;/em&gt;starred review  &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;The Widowers Tale&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;/strong&gt;“Beautifully sensitive . . . &lt;em&gt;The Widowers Tale&lt;/em&gt; is about the rub between old values and new times . . . In the tradition of &lt;em&gt;Jane Eyre,&lt;/em&gt; 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.” —&lt;em&gt;Los Angeles Times&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; “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.” —&lt;em&gt;The New York Times Book Review&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; “A masterful exploration of the secret places of the human heart.” —&lt;em&gt;Richmond Times-Dispatch&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; &lt;strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;I See You Everywhere&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;/strong&gt;“Glass is the Edith Wharton for the twenty-first century.” —&lt;em&gt;Pittsburgh Post-Gazette&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; “Rich, intricate, and alive with emotion . . . An honest portrait of sister-love . . . Brave and forgiving.” —&lt;em&gt;The New York Times Book Review&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; &lt;strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;The Whole World Over&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;/strong&gt;“Beautiful and satisfying, chock-full of the gorgeous, heartbreaking stuff that makes life worth living.” —&lt;em&gt;The Rocky Mountain News &lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; “A voluptuous treat.” —&lt;em&gt;Entertainment Weekly&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; &lt;strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;Three Junes&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;/strong&gt;“Enormously accomplished . . . Rich, absorbing, and full of life.”—&lt;em&gt;The New Yorker&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; “Radiant . . . An intimate literary triptych of lives pulled together and torn apart.” —&lt;em&gt;Chicago Tribune&lt;/em&gt;&lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; “Almost threatens to burst with all the life it contains.

<description>&lt;dl&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Author&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;Tropper, Jonathan&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Formats&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;epub, mobi&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Isbn&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;9780525952367&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Identifiers&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;amazon:0525952365,google:WhvEFkP-T3YC,isbn:9780525952367&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Languages&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;eng&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Pubdate&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;2012-08-21T01:00:00-06:00&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Series index&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;1.0&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Size&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;497110&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Title&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;One Last Thing Before I Go&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;dt&gt;Id&lt;/dt&gt;&lt;dd&gt;143&lt;/dd&gt;&lt;/dl&gt;**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*

Although he wouldn't officially be diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome until his freshman year of high school, Josh was six years old and onstage in a school Thanksgiving play when he first began exhibiting symptoms. By the time he was twenty, the young Mormon had reached his towering adult height of 6'7" when&amp;#8212;while serving on a mission for the Church of Latter Day Saints&amp;#8212;his Tourette's tics escalated to nightmarish levels. &lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt; Determined to conquer his affliction, Josh underwent everything from quack remedies to lethargy-inducing drug regimes to Botox injections that paralyzed his vocal cords and left him voiceless for three years. Undeterred, Josh persevered to marry and earn a degree in Library Science. At last, an eccentric, autistic strongman&amp;#8212;and former Air Force Tech Sergeant and guard at an...</description>

The London that comes to life in Kraken is a weird metropolis awash in secret currents of myth and magic, where criminals, police, cultists, and wizards are locked in a war to bring about--or prevent--the End of All Things.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;In the Darwin Centre at London's Natural History Museum, Billy Harrow, a cephalopod specialist, is conducting a tour whose climax is meant to be the Centre's prize specimen of a rare Architeuthis dux&lt;i&gt;--&lt;/i&gt;better known as the Giant Squid. But Billy's tour takes an unexpected turn when the squid suddenly and impossibly vanishes into thin air.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;As Billy soon discovers, this is the precipitating act in a struggle to the death between mysterious but powerful forces in a London whose...</description>

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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;h3&gt;Amazon.com Review&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;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 &lt;em&gt;The Art of UNIX Programming&lt;/em&gt; 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 &lt;em&gt;The Cathedral and the Bazaar&lt;/em&gt;, 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. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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 &lt;em&gt;right&lt;/em&gt;. &lt;em&gt;--David Wall&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Topics covered&lt;/strong&gt;: 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. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;h3&gt;From the Back Cover&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;"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."&lt;/em&gt; &lt;br&gt; --Kent Beck, author of &lt;em&gt;Extreme Programming Explained, Test Driven Development&lt;/em&gt;, and &lt;em&gt;Contributing to Eclipse&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;"A delightful, fascinating read, and the lessons in problem-solvng are essential to every programmer, on any OS."&lt;/em&gt; &lt;br&gt; --Bruce Eckel, author of &lt;em&gt;Thinking in Java&lt;/em&gt; and&lt;em&gt; Thinking in C++&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Writing better software: 30 years of UNIX development wisdom&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Raymond incorporates commentary from thirteen UNIX pioneers:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Ken Thompson&lt;/strong&gt;, the inventor of UNIX.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Ken Arnold&lt;/strong&gt;, part of the group that created the 4BSD UNIX releases and co-author of &lt;em&gt;The Java Programming Language&lt;/em&gt;.&lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Steven M.

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, &lt;i&gt;She's Not There&lt;/i&gt; is about a person bearing and finally revealing a complex secret. Through her clear eyes, &lt;i&gt;She's Not There&lt;/i&gt; provides a new window on the confounding process of accepting our true selves.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;"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 . . . The universality of the astonishingly uncommon: that's the trick of &lt;i&gt;She's Not There&lt;/i&gt;. And with laughs, too. What a good book." --Anna Quindlen, from the Introduction to the...</description>

But inside, she knows she's a freak; she can't stop thinking about former loner Logan McDonough, who showed up on the first day of tenth grade hotter, bolder, and more mysterious than ever. Logan is fascinating, troubled and off-limits. The Pound High queen bee will make Anika's life hell if she's seen with him. So Anika must choose--ignore her feelings and keep her social status? Or follow her heart and risk becoming a pariah. Which will she pick? And what will she think of her choice when an unimaginable tragedy strikes, changing her forever? An absolutely original new voice in YA in a story that will start important conversations--and tear at your heart.

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 &lt;i&gt;Le Cirque des R&amp;ecirc;ves&lt;/i&gt;, and it is only open at night. &lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt; 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. &lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus...</description>

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
“Engaging new novel.”—The Washington Post

Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava&amp;#8212;in all other ways a normal girl&amp;#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,...</description>

The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. &lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills--and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit--he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?</description>

R. Martin's monumental epic cycle of high fantasy. Now, in &lt;i&gt;A Feast for Crows&lt;/i&gt;, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;b&gt;A FEAST FOR CROWS&lt;br&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br&gt;It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. . . . With the death of the monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in King's Landing. Robb Stark's demise has broken the back of the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few legitimate claims to the once...</description>

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*.
This EduManga book is a translation from a bestselling series in Japan, co-published with Ohmsha, Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan.

Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, and Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&lt;br&gt;&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&lt;br&gt;&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;</description>

Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of th Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of...Now the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages. And it is stolen.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&lt;br&gt;&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;&lt;br&gt;&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;</description>

Were his nightly forays into the worst slums of &lt;ST1:CITY w:st="on"&gt;London and his deepening obsession with corpses, crypts, murder, opium dens, the use of lime pits to dissolve bodies, and a hidden subterranean &lt;ST1:PLACE w:st="on"&gt;&lt;ST1:CITY w:st="on"&gt;London mere research . . . or something more terrifying?&lt;br&gt;Just as he did in &lt;i&gt;The Terror&lt;/i&gt;, 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...</description>

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.

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&amp;#8212;after twenty-seven years&amp;#8212;the two were splitting, fans were devastated. In the middle of a crazy world, they'd seemed so solid. &lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;What did this mean? What comes next? What came before?&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;In Girl in a Band, the famously reserved superstar speaks candidly about her past and the future.

With her new show climbing in the ratings and her first book a bestseller, she's being dubbed a media double threat.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;An adversary with a dark agenda wants to hurt Robin, and the clues point to someone she works with every day.

But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything, instead "checking out" impossibly obscure volumes from strange corners of the store, all according to some elaborate, long-standing arrangement with the gnomic Mr. Penumbra.

Suddenly, mankind is confronted with a virus that devastates the adult population. Only those under the age of eighteen seem to be immune. Desperate to save humanity, a renowned scientist proposes a bold plan: to create a ship that will carry a crew of 251 teenagers to a home in a distant solar system. Two years later, the &lt;i&gt;Galahad&lt;/i&gt; and its crew&amp;#8212;none over the age of sixteen&amp;#8212;is launched.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;br&gt;Two years of training have prepared the crew for the challenges of space travel. But soon after departing Earth, they discover that a saboteur is hiding on the &lt;i&gt;Galahad&lt;/i&gt;! Faced with escalating acts of vandalism and terrorized by threatening messages, sixteen-year-old Triana Martell and her council soon realize that the stowaway will do anything to ensure that the &lt;i&gt;Galahad&lt;/i&gt; never reaches its destination. The teens must find a way to...</description>

Dreaming that the real world could be a little more like the countless science-fiction books, movies, and videogames he's spent his life consuming. Dreaming that one day, some fantastic, world-altering event will shatter the monotony of his humdrum existence and whisk him off on some grand space-faring adventure. &lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;But hey, there's nothing wrong with a little escapism, right? After all, Zack tells himself, he knows the difference between fantasy and reality. He knows that here in the real world, aimless teenage gamers with anger issues don't get chosen to save the universe. &lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;And then he sees the flying saucer. &lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;Even stranger, the alien ship he's staring at is straight out of the videogame he plays every night, a hugely popular online flight simulator called &lt;i&gt;Armada--&lt;/i&gt;in which gamers just happen to be protecting the earth from alien invaders. &lt;i&gt; &lt;/i&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;No, Zack hasn't lost his mind.

Both Nick and his character, Ron Swanson, are known for their humor and patriotism in equal measure.&lt;br&gt;After the great success of his autobiography, &lt;i&gt;Paddle Your Own Canoe&lt;/i&gt;, Offerman now focuses on the lives of those who inspired him. From George Washington to Willie Nelson, he describes a few dozen of these heroic figures and why they inspire in him such great meaning. He'll combine both serious history with light-hearted humor&amp;#8212;comparing, say, George Washington's wooden teeth to his own experience as a woodworker. The subject matter will also allow Offerman to expound upon his favorite topics, which readers...</description>

Her discovery comes when she spots a photo of the finished copy in an American tabloid&amp;#8212;and it's in the hands of the vice president's wife!

There is, however, space for another such framework that integrates seamlessly with Java. Thousands of companies have invested in Java, and these same companies are losing out on the benefits of a Railslike framework. Enter Grails.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Grails is not just a Rails clone. It aims to provide a Railslike environment that is more familiar to Java developers and employs idioms that Java developers are comfortable using, making the adjustment in mentality to a dynamic framework less of a jump. The concepts within Grails, like interceptors, tag libs, and Groovy Server Pages (GSP), make those in the Java community feel right at home.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Grails foundation is on solid open source technologies such as Spring, Hibernate, and SiteMesh, which gives it even more potential in the Java space: Spring provides powerful inversion of control and MVC, Hibernate brings a stable, mature object relational mapping technology with the ability to integrate with legacy systems, and SiteMesh handles flexible layout control and page decoration.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Grails complements these with additional features that take advantage of the codingbyconvention paradigm such as dynamic tag libraries, Grails object relational mapping, Groovy Server Pages, and scaffolding.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Graeme Rocher&lt;/strong&gt;, Grails lead and founder, and &lt;strong&gt;Jeff Brown&lt;/strong&gt; bring you completely uptodate with their authoritative and fully comprehensive guide to the Grails framework. Youll get to know all the core features, services, and Grails extensions via plugins, and understand the roles that Groovy and Grails are playing in the changing Web.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;h3&gt;What youll learn&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;ul&gt; &lt;li&gt;Discover how the Web is changing and the role the Groovy language and its Rails framework play &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Get to know the Grails Project and its domains, services, filters, controllers, views, testing, and plugins &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Experience the availability of plugins for Rich Client and Ajax, web services, performance/utilities, scheduling, security, functionality, and even Persistence &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;See how Grails works with other frameworks like Spring, Wicket, Hibernate, and more &lt;/li&gt; &lt;li&gt;Create custom plugins in Grails &lt;/li&gt; &lt;/ul&gt; &lt;h3&gt;Who this book is for&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;This book is for everyone who is looking for a more agile approach to web development with a dynamic scripting language such as Groovy. This includes a large number of Java developers who have been enticed by the productivity gains seen with frameworks such as Ruby on Rails, JRuby on Rails, etc. The Web and its environment is a perfect fit for easily adaptable and concise languages such as Groovy and Ruby, and there is huge interest from the developer community in general to embrace these languages. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;**&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;&lt;h3&gt;About the Author&lt;/h3&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Graeme Rocher&lt;/strong&gt; is an experienced software engineer, consultant and dynamic language expert. Graeme is project lead of the open source Grails web application framework (Grails.org) and author of &lt;em&gt;The Definitive Guide to Grails&lt;/em&gt;. In Graeme's role as head of Grails development at SpringSource, the professional open source services company behind the Spring framework, Graeme leads the development of the Grails web framework and provides consulting, training and support to SpringSource's clients. Graeme is a frequent speaker at industry conferences on subjects related to Groovy, Grails and dynamic languages in Java. Prior to joining SpringSource Graeme co-founded G2One the Groovy/Grails Company which was later acquired by SpringSource. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Jeff Brown&lt;/strong&gt; is a software engineer at SpringSource and a member of the Groovy and Grails development teams. Jeff has been involved with software engineering since the early 1990s and has designed and built systems for industries including financial, biomedical, aerospace, and others. Jeff worked for G2One Inc. (the Groovy/Grails Company), where he would help drive the professional services side of the business. In late 2008, Jeff joined SpringSource when G2One and SpringSource came together to leverage synergies between the technologies created and supported by each company. Through his entire career, Jeff has been a hands-on technologist actively involved in software development, training, and mentoring. He is also an international public speaker. &lt;/p&gt;&lt;/html&gt;</description>

When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure&amp;#8217;s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum&amp;#8217;s most valuable and dangerous jewel.&lt;BR&gt; &lt;BR&gt;In a mining town in Germany, the orphan Werner grows up with his younger sister,...</description>

This book, opening with these words, presents an entirely new theory of the process of design. In the first part of the book, Mr. Alexander discusses the process by which a form is adapted to the context of human needs and demands that has called it into being. He shows that such an adaptive process will be successful only if it proceeds piecemeal instead of all at once. It is for this reason that forms from traditional unselfconscious cultures, molded not by designers but by the slow pattern of changes within tradition, are so beautifully organized and adapted. When the designer, in our own self-conscious culture, is called on to create a form that is adapted to its context he is unsuccessful, because the preconceived categories out of which he builds his picture of the problem do not correspond to the inherent components of the problem, and therefore lead only to the arbitrariness, willfulness, and lack of understanding which plague the design of modern buildings and modern cities. In the second part, Mr. Alexander presents a method by which the designer may bring his full creative imagination into play, and yet avoid the traps of irrelevant preconception. He shows that, whenever a problem is stated, it is possible to ignore existing concepts and to create new concepts, out of the structure of the problem itself, which do correspond correctly to what he calls the subsystems of the adaptive process. By treating each of these subsystems as a separate subproblem, the designer can translate the new concepts into form. The form, because of the process, will be well-adapted to its context, non-arbitrary, and correct. The mathematics underlying this method, based mainly on set theory, is fully developed in a long appendix. Another appendix demonstrates the application of the method to the design of an Indian village.</description>

If you want to change the future before it happens to you, this book is required reading.”
**Reed Hundt** , former Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission
“There is no simpler or clearer statement of the radical change that digital technologies will bring, nor any book that better prepares one for thinking about the next steps.”
**Lawrence** **Lessig** , Stanford Law School and Author of *Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace*
“ *Blown to Bits* will blow you away. In highly accessible and always fun prose, it explores all the nooks and crannies of the digital universe, exploring not only how this exploding space works but also what it means.”
**Debora Spar** , President of Barnard College, Author of *Ruling the Waves* and *The Baby Business*
“This is a wonderful bookprobably the best since Hal Varian and Carl Schultz wrote *Digital Rules*. The authors are engineers, not economists. The result is a long, friendly talk with the genie, out of the lamp, and willing to help you avoid making the traditional mistake with that all-important third wish.”
**David Warsh** , Author of *Knowledge and the Wealth of Nations*
“ *Blown to Bits* is one of the clearest expositions Ive seen of the social and political issues arising from the Internet. Its remarkably clear explanations of how the Net actually works lets the hot air out of some seemingly endless debates. Youve made explaining this stuff look easy. Congratulations!”
**David Weinberger** , Coauthor of *The Cluetrain Manifesto* and Author of *Everything Is Miscellaneous: The Power of the New Digital Disorder*.
“ *Blown to Bits* is a timely, important, and very readable take on how information is produced and consumed today, and more important, on the approaching sea change in the way that we as a society deal with the consequences.”
**Craig Silverstein** , Director of Technology, Google, Inc.
“This book gives an overview of the kinds of issues confronting society as we become increasingly dependent on the Internet and the World Wide Web. Every informed citizen should read this book and then form their own opinion on these and related issues. And after reading this book you will rethink how (and even whether) you use the Web to form your opinions…”
**James S. Miller** , Senior Director for Technology Policy and Strategy, Microsoft Corporation
“Most writing about the digital world comes from techies writing about technical matter for other techies or from pundits whose turn of phrase greatly exceeds their technical knowledge. In *Blown to Bits* , experts in computer science address authoritatively the practical issues in which we all have keen interest.”
**Howard Gardner** , Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education, Author of *Multiple Intelligences* and *Changing Minds*
**
“Regardless of your experience with computers, *Blown to Bits* provides a uniquely entertaining and informative perspective from the computing industrys greatest minds.
A fascinating, insightful and entertaining book that helps you understand computers and their impact on the world in a whole new way.
This is a rare book that explains the impact of the digital explosion in a way that everyone can understand and, at the same time, challenges experts to think in new ways.”
**Anne Margulies** , Assistant Secretary for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
“ *Blown to Bits* is fun and fundamental. What a pleasure to see real teachers offering such excellent framework for students in a digital age to explore and understand their digital environment, code and law, starting with the insight of Claude Shannon. I look forward to you teaching in an open online school.”
**Professor Charles Nesson** , Harvard Law School, Founder, Berkman Center for Internet and Society
“To many of us, computers and the Internet are magic. We make stuff, send stuff, receive stuff, and buy stuff. Its all pointing, clicking, copying, and pasting. But its all mysterious. This book explains in clear and comprehensive terms how all this gear on my desk works and why we should pay close attention to these revolutionary changes in our lives. Its a brilliant and necessary work for consumers, citizens, and students of all ages.”
**Siva Vaidhyanathan,** cultural historian and media scholar at the University of Virginia and author of *Copyrights and Copywrongs: The Rise of Intellectual Property and How it Threatens Creativity*
**
“The world has turned into the proverbial elephant and we the blind men. The old and the young among us risk being controlled by, rather than in control of, events and technologies. *Blown to Bits* is a remarkable and essential Rosetta Stone for beginning to figure out how all of the pieces of the new world we have just begun to enterlaw, technology, culture, informationare going to fit together. Will life explode with new possibilities, or contract under pressure of new horrors? The precipice is both exhilarating and frightening. Hal Abelson, Ken Ledeen, and Harry Lewis, together, have ably managed to describe the elephant. Readers of this compact book describing the beginning stages of a vast human adventure will be one jump ahead, for they will have a framework on which to hang new pieces that will continue to appear with remarkable speed. To say that this is a must read sounds trite, but, this time, its absolutely true.”
**Harvey Silverglate** , criminal defense and civil liberties lawyer and writer
Every day, billions of photographs, news stories, songs, X-rays, TV shows, phone calls, and emails are being scattered around the world as sequences of zeroes and ones: bits. We cant escape this explosion of digital information and few of us want tothe benefits are too seductive. The technology has enabled unprecedented innovation, collaboration, entertainment, and democratic participation.
But the same engineering marvels are shattering centuries-old assumptions about privacy, identity, free expression, and personal control as more and more details of our lives are captured as digital data.
Can you control who sees all that personal information about you? Can email be truly confidential, when nothing seems to be private? Shouldnt the Internet be censored the way radio and TV are? Is it really a federal crime to download music? When you use Google or Yahoo! to search for something, how do they decide which sites to show you? Do you still have free speech in the digital world? Do you have a voice in shaping government or corporate policies about any of this?
*Blown to Bits* offers provocative answers to these questions and tells intriguing real-life stories. This book is a wake-up call to the human consequences of the digital explosion.

No programming knowledge is necessary to benefit from this book except for the section on Lua bindings, which requires some familiarity with the C programming language. A certain comfort level with command-line operations, text editing, and directory structures is assumed.
You need surprisingly little in the way of computer resources to learn and use Lua. This book focuses on Windows and Unix-like (including Linux) systems, but any operating system that supports a command shell should be suitable. You'll need a text editor to prepare and save Lua scripts.
If you choose to extend Lua with libraries written in a programming language like C, you'll need a suitable software development kit. Many of these kits are freely available on the Internet but, unlike Lua, they can consume prodigious amounts of disk space and memory.

### From the Back Cover
Lua offers a wide range of features that you can utilize to support and enhance your applications. With this book as your guide, you'll gain a thorough understanding of all aspects of programming with this powerful language. It will walk you through the basics, covering everything from installing Lua on your system to developing games and web sites.
Experts Jung and Brown first present the fundamentals of programming and explain standard Lua functions. They then show you how to take advantage of all of the free Lua community resources that are available. Complete code samples are integrated throughout the chapters to clearly demonstrate how to apply the information. Diagrams are also included to highlight important Lua features such as stacks, hash tables, garbage collection, and function closures. All of this will help you to quickly write your own effective programs.
**What you will learn from this book**
* Ways to extend Lua's operators with metamethods
* Methods on how to use tables, strings, and modules
* How to handle events naturally with coroutines

Any project of meaningful size should be automatically tested to help catch bugs as early as possible. Jasmine, a testing framework for JavaScript, makes it easy to test JavaScript projects, from browser-based applications to Node.js. &lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;While a quick understanding of Jasmine can be gleaned from the project's homepage, the framework has a lot of details and exciting plugins. This book explores Jasmine in a depth that can't be found elsewhere.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;This book provides:&lt;/p&gt;&lt;li&gt;Exposure to some Jasmine plugins, to extend Jasmine and allow for more functionality and more thorough testing&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;An Understanding of Jasmine's main features, to allow code to be automatically tested and reduce bugs&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;An Explanation of how to get Jasmine working in the browser, Node.js, through Rails, and other environments&lt;/li&gt;</description>
