<b>*DESIGNED FOR KINDLE FIRE TABLETS*</b><br /><br /><b>*NOT FOR KINDLE E-READERS OR KINDLE APPS*</b><br /><br />Explainer-in-Chief David Macaulay updates the worldwide bestseller <i>The New Way Things Work</i> to capture the latest developments in the technology that most impacts our lives. Famously packed with information on the inner workings of everything from windmills to Wi-Fi, this extraordinary and humorous book both guides readers through the fundamental principles of machines, and shows how the developments of the past are building the world of tomorrow. This sweepingly revised edition embraces all of the latest developments, from touchscreens to 3D printer. Each scientific principle is brilliantly explained--with the help of a charming, if rather slow-witted, woolly mammoth. <br /><br />An illustrated survey of significant inventions closes the book, along with a glossary of technical terms, and an index. What possible link could there be between zippers and plows, dentist drills and windmills? Parking meters and meat grinders, jumbo jets and jackhammers, remote control and rockets, electric guitars and egg beaters? Macaulay explains them all.<br /><br /><b>This Print Replica Kindle ebook maintains the rich formatting and layout of the print edition while enabling readers to zoom and pan on the highly detailed images. This advanced format is designed for Kindle Fire tablets and cannot be read on Kindle e-readers (including the Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Voyage) or with most Kindle apps (including Kindle for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch).

Want to learn about databases without the tedium? With its unique combination of Japanese-style comics and serious educational content, <i>The Manga Guide to Databases</i> is just the book for you.<br /><br />Princess Ruruna is stressed out. With the king and queen away, she has to manage the Kingdom of Kod's humongous fruit-selling empire. Overseas departments, scads of inventory, conflicting prices, and so many customers! It's all such a confusing mess. But a mysterious book and a helpful fairy promise to solve her organizational problems—with the practical magic of databases.<br /><br />In <i>The Manga Guide to Databases</i>, Tico the fairy teaches the Princess how to simplify her data management. We follow along as they design a relational database, understand the entity-relationship model, perform basic database operations, and delve into more advanced topics. Once the Princess is familiar with transactions and basic SQL statements, she can keep her data timely and accurate for the entire kingdom. Finally, Tico explains ways to make the database more efficient and secure, and they discuss methods for concurrency and replication.<br /><br />Examples and exercises (with answer keys) help you learn, and an appendix of frequently used SQL statements gives the tools you need to create and maintain full-featured databases.<br /><br />(Of course, it wouldn't be a royal kingdom without some drama, so read on to find out who gets the girl—the arrogant prince or the humble servant.)<br /><br />This EduManga book is a translation of a bestselling series in Japan, co-published with Ohmsha, Ltd., of Tokyo, Japan.

<p>There are typically two sides to the beer coaster:<br /><p><br />“Alcohol is the anesthesia by which we endure the operation of life.” — George Bernard Shaw</p><p><br />“Here’s to alcohol, the rose colored glasses of life.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald</p><br /><p>Drink to feel nothing, or drink to feel <em>something</em>. Both are widely practiced. But both fall flat.</p><br /><br /><p>As a Catholic, you want to live a full life, with intention and purpose. You think beer, wine, and liquor can be part of that, but you don’t have an authentic way to approach alcoholic beverages, so you abstain or indulge. Either way, you come up empty. The fact is, most of us haven’t been taught how to <em>drink well</em>.</p><br /><br /><p>In <strong>Barstool Theology</strong>, Trevor Gundlach cracks open an entirely new way to talk about beer and exactly how it can be an effervescent part of a life well lived. He invites you to become a fellow barstool theologian, ready to discuss the theology of life, friendship, art, seasons, celebrations, and, yes, delicious craft beer.</p><br /><br /><p><strong>Barstool Theology</strong> does not lay down rules to follow but offers practical ideas to try. It is full of reflection, humor, analogies, ancient philosophy, and Instagram-worthy stories that open a new dialogue about drinking that is fresh, flavorful, and fun.</p><br /><br /><p>So, pull up a barstool. Let’s have a drink and talk.</p>
