Explanation of the Book:

In 2009, Rolling Stone named Joe Romm to its list of "100 People Who Are Changing America." Romm is a climate expert, physicist, energy consultant, and former official in the Department of Energy. But it’s his influential blog, one of the "Top Fifteen Green Websites" according to Time magazine, that’s caught national attention. Climate change is far more urgent than people understand, Romm says, and traditional media, scientists, and politicians are missing the story. Straight Up draws on Romm’s most important posts to explain the dangers of and solutions to climate change that you won’t find in newspapers, in journals, or on T.V. Compared to coverage of Jay-Z or the latest philandering politician, climate change makes up a pathetically small share of news reports. And when journalists do try to tackle this complex issue, they often lack the background to tell the full story. Despite the dearth of reporting, polls show that two in five Americans think the press is actually exaggerating the threat of climate change. That gives Big Oil, and others with a vested interest in the status quo, a huge opportunity to mislead the public. Romm cuts through the misinformation and presents the truth about humanity’s most dire threat. His analysis is based on sophisticated knowledge of renewable technologies, climate impacts, and government policy, written in a style everyone can understand. Romm shows how a 20 percent reduction in global emissions over the next quarter century could improve the economy; how we can replace most coal and with what technologies; why Sarah Palin wears a polar bear pin; and why controversial, emerging technologies like biochar have to be part of the solution. The ultimate solution, Romm argues, is bigger than any individual technology: it’s citizen action. Without public pressure, Washington and industry don’t budge. With it, our grandkids might just have a habitable place to live. “The Web’s most influential climate-change blogger” and “Hero of the Environment 2009” —Time Magazine “I trust Joe Romm on climate.” —Paul Krugman, New York Times “America’s fiercest climate-change activist-blogger” and one of “The 100 People Who Are Changing America” — Rolling Stone “One of the most influential energy and environmental policy makers in the Obama era” — U.S. News & World Report “The indispensable blog” —Thomas Friedman, New York Times “One of the most influential energy and environmental policy makers in the Obama era” — U.S. News & World Report “The indispensable blog” —Thomas Friedman, New York Times

Explanation of the Book:

Born in the foothills close to the Himalaya Steve Berry had from an early age an urge to become a traveller, an adventurer, an explorer, and until the age of thirty-eight years he tried hard to satisfy two opposing forces. Half of him wanted to find a satisfactory career path while the other half wanted to be free and specifically explore the Himalaya. In the end he found a compromise to satisfy both needs. In 1987 with his climbing friend Steve Bell he founded Himalayan Kingdoms, a travel company specialising in trekking and expedition holidays. This book is a collection of stories from his early expeditions to the Himalaya prior to 1987. There are tales of encounters with bears, escapes from avalanches, summit successes and failures, love stories mystical connections, Himalayan storms, near death accidents, raw travel across the Indian sub-continent, and grapples with bureaucracy. It is told warts and all. It starts with tales of youthful naivety in the mountains of Himachal Pradesh, progresses to what Steve describes as his best ever adventure, the first British ascent of Nun, 7,135m/23,410ft, in Kashmir, and finishes with the truth of what happened on the failed attempt to climb Bhutan's highest peak, Gangkar Punsum, 7550m/24,770ft. Of Straight Up Steve says: 'I just really wanted people to enjoy reading of our adventures the way they were.'

Editor: Frontline Books
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

This gripping book is about what it was really like to fight at the sharp end in World War II. In 1947, US General S. L. A Marshall controversially wrote that out of every one hundred combat soldiers only fifteen to twenty-five actually fired their weapons at the enemy, because of the innate human reluctance to take another's life. Others maintained the opposite view that soldiers enjoyed killing. David Lee demonstrates that the situation was far more complex than either of these positions, arguing that the crucial factor for a unit s success in battle was the type of training it received. To illustrate this Lee covers actions from each theatre of the war, in depth and with comprehensive coverage of weapons and tactics. First there is the story of what happened when a battalion of British soldiers trained in the traditional manner came up against the Waffen SS, whose training was formidable and bore close resemblance to the Commandos . The success of No. 4 Commando at Dieppe is covered to show how this was put into effect. For the desert war there is a detailed look at how a rifle battalion held the snipe position against overwhelming odds, and how that same battalion was virtually wiped out when it later went to Italy. For the Far East, Lee explains how hatred of the Japanese Army gave impetus to British soldiers fighting at Kohima and American soldiers at Iwo Jima. And finally there is the story of one US infantry regiment on D-Day.

Explanation of the Book:

High atop a mountain, Keith Brueckner grappled with fear at the sight of an immense wall of steep ice and snow, a looming overhang, and the descending grey of storm high on a face. Time after time as he bravely faced the unknown and elements beyond his control, Brueckner opted to bury his fears, test his abilities and inner-strength, and join his mountaineering heroes in creating unforgettable adventures. In a narrative released posthumously, Brueckner details over fifty years of climbs in the mountains beginning in 1938 in Switzerland when he first ascended a steep dusty trail up the Rigi and discovered his love for thin air, spectacular views, and physical challenges. In his entertaining anecdotes, Brueckner leads others through his mountaineering adventures that took him from the Matterhorn to Mt. Blanc to the Sierra Madra, Half Dome, Mt. Woodson, and the Tetons. Brueckner not only shares a glimpse into a day in the life of an avid climber, but also describes the technical aspects of mountain climbing, the equipment, and the sometimes unforgivable terrain. Included are his personal ratings that classify climbs according to difficulty. Mountaineering: A Personal History is a nostalgic compilation of stories that chronicle one mans adventures as he scaled peaks in Europe and the United States and nurtured his passion to become one with the gods.

Book four in The Speakeasy series Love, served straight up. Malcolm Elliott has been keeping secrets. Helping his mom through a financial crisis has nearly emptied his bank account and his kitchen cupboards, despite his thriving career with Corporate Equality Campaign. Malcolm is also bothered by his inability to tell the most important people in his life that he identifies as gray ace. Stuart Morgan has a secret of his own. Though years have passed since the tattooed chef fled the Mormon church in Utah for New York, he's never truly come to terms with the fetish that ruined that rigid but outwardly perfect life. Experience has also taught Stuart that keeping his love of lacy things under wraps is safer than telling the truth. After Malcom's boss, Carter, hires Stuart's restaurant to cater a gala fundraising event, the strait-laced Malcolm is thrown together with badass biker Stuart. Despite their differences and a couple of false starts, the men discover they work well together and a friendship quickly forms. As Malcolm's feelings for Stuart deepen, his sexuality awakens, but he remains tight-lipped about his problems. And though Stuart grows more and more attached to Malcolm, he remains fearful of confessing his fetish. When both of their secrets are finally exposed, they find themselves at a crossroads in which they must choose between playing it safe or finally coming clean to the person they love.

Explanation of the Book:

This is a book of overcoming grace and peace through Jesus when the cards seem stacked against you. When people seem mean and you have given up on being happy, that would be the time to read this book. We all get discouraged and the points I want to make in this book are that crabby and miserable are choices. You have to decide if you want to experience life or just exist. Deuteronomy is an excellent example of this After 40 years of wandering and grumbling Moses asked his people do you want to enter the Promised Land or do you want to stay in the wilderness? He said "I am a dying man I am imploring you to look to God and get it right." This would be what I am trying to achieve through this book. I want you to know that I understand grumbling, complaining and hopelessness. I also understand freedom in Christ and want to offer it to you. James 1: 2-4 "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

Explanation of the Book:

As a child, physically I was considered a “late bloomer.” I understand that may have some health benefits. However, I’m totally not at all certain what benefits may be befitting a person who starts “authoring” at sixty-eight years of age, except the newfound excitement and fulfillment of creating. I am blessed to be able to do so; and doubly so, if you, the reader, find some enjoyment therefrom. Before departing this page, I would like to carve out my gratitude to Sam Koeppel for his wonderful editing and to Rick Esposito for artistic endeavors in rendering the cover of my book.
