<p><strong>The latest investigation from acclaimed nuclear engineer and author James Mahaffey unearths forgotten nuclear endeavors throughout history that were sometimes hair-brained, often risky, and always fascinating.</strong></p><br />Whether you are a scientist or a poet, pro-nuclear energy or staunch opponent, conspiracy theorist or pragmatist, James Mahaffey's books have served to open up the world of nuclear science like never before. With clear explanations of some of the most complex scientific endeavors in history, Mahaffey's new book looks back at the atom's wild, secretive past and then toward its potentially bright future.<br /><br /><br /><br />Mahaffey unearths lost reactors on far flung Pacific islands and trees that were exposed to active fission that changed gender or bloomed in the dead of winter. He explains why we have nuclear submarines but not nuclear aircraft and why cold fusion doesn't exist. And who knew that radiation counting was once a fashionable trend? Though parts of the nuclear history might seem like a fiction mash-up, where cowboys somehow got a hold of a reactor, Mahaffey's vivid prose holds the reader in thrall of the infectious energy of scientific curiosity and ingenuity that may one day hold the key to solving our energy crisis or sending us to Mars.

<p>The bestselling author of <i>The Elegant Universe</i> and <i>The Fabric of the Cosmos</i> tackles perhaps the most mind-bending question in modern physics and cosmology: Is our universe the only universe?<br /><br />There was a time when "universe" meant all there is. Everything. Yet, a number of theories are converging on the possibility that our universe may be but one among many parallel universes populating a vast multiverse. Here, Briane Greene, one of our foremost physicists and science writers, takes us on a breathtaking journey to a multiverse comprising an endless series of big bangs, a multiverse with duplicates of every one of us, a multiverse populated by vast sheets of spacetime, a multiverse in which all we consider real are holographic illusions, and even a multiverse made purely of math--and reveals the reality hidden within each.<br /><br />Using his trademark wit and precision, Greene presents a thrilling survey of cutting-edge physics and confronts the inevitable question: How can fundamental science progress if great swaths of reality lie beyond our reach? <i>The Hidden Reality</i> is a remarkable adventure through a world more vast and strange than anything we could have imagined.</p>

<h2>Are you stuck in a rut despite your best efforts to get out? Looking for long-term solutions to your problems? </h2> <br /><br />We have the best of intentions to improve our conditions, but often our solutions fall short of improving our lives. Sometimes our best efforts can result in the opposite of what we want over time. How can we avoid these unwanted results? <br /><br />If we apply conventional thinking to complex issues, we often maintain or increase the very problems we want to fix. There is, however, a solution to get the desired results. <br /><br /><i>Think in Systems</i> is a concise information manual offering high-level problem-solving methods for personal and global issues. The book presents the main features of systems thinking in an understandable and everyday manner, helping you to develop this skill top analysts and world leaders use. <br /><br />If you thought that complex thinking is only for people who deal with complex issues like running a company or country, think again. Every issue is complex. Running out of gas is a simple problem, but I’m sure you’re dealing with much greater headaches on a daily basis. <br /><br />Your life is a system. Everything that is connected to your system (life) is a part of it. However, you are just a subsystem in the larger picture. Your town, country, the world, the solar system are all bigger systems you are a part of. These systems are interconnected. Whatever you do will affect the system and whatever the system does will affect your life. <br /><br />Systems can have positive and negative effect on your life – or on the life of people generally. The greatest problems like hunger, war, and poverty are all failures in the system. Similarly, fights with your loved ones, being stuck in a rut at your job are also system failures. They are not only your fault. Thus they can’t be fixed with a simple cause-effect thinking. <br /><br /><u>Learn to use systems thinking in your business, relationships, friendships, and general political, socio-economic, and environmental issues. </u><br /><br />Systems thinking boosts your <b>critical thinking skills, makes you more logical, enhances your analytical abilities, and makes you more creative. </b><br /><br />Systems thinking won’t put extra pressure on your cognition. Quite the contrary, you’ll have fewer headaches knowing that you surely didn’t miss any detail when you tried to solve a problem.<br /><br /><br /><h2>"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them." Albert Einstein</h2><br />•Learn the main aspects, concepts, and models of systems thinking.<br />•<b>Design models and systems maps to solve your problems</b><br />•Find solutions to your underlying problems, not just the symptoms<br />•<b>Improve your mental health, wealth, and relationships</b><br /><br />Systems thinking is a relatively new discipline which doesn’t get the exposure it deserves. However, our world grows more connected, interdependent and complex with each passing day. Becoming a systems thinker will help you to overcome your confusion and fear of missing the whole picture, and help you find more effective solutions to your personal (and if you are up to it), global problems. <br /><br />•Widen your understanding of international economic, political, and socio-economic affairs<br />•<b>Manage your business better</b> <br />•The most helpful materials, books, and experts to learn even more about systems thinking <br /><br />Identify your problems more accurately. <b>Find solutions to your problems, don’t just treat the symptoms.</b> Map out a strategic action plan to change your circumstances. Become more patient by understanding the world – and your place in it – better. Shift your focus from the unimportant details and focus on the real issues. Stay a learner. <br /><br /><h2>Apply systems thinking in your problem solving, decision making, and strategic planning without the need to become a technical professional. </h2><br />

History teacher Fritz Russell walks through his classroom door, only to find General Robert E. Lee resting in the woods on the day after the surrender at Appomattox.<br /><br />A lover of history, Fritz finds his sudden time trip to the past both a gift and a chance for great adventure. But when the classroom door opens to the Oval Office, he realizes that his time portal might also be put to serious purpose.<br /><br />Hired by the president to help on behalf of national security. Fritz does not believe he will be endangered by using his door to travel across time and space.

<b>The legendary physicist explores his favorite subject in a pair of enlightening, accessible, and cleverly illustrated essays for curious readers, originally delivered as BBC lectures.</b><br />  <br /> <i>“It is said that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more true than in the case of black holes. Black holes are stranger than anything dreamed up by science-fiction writers, but they are firmly matters of science fact.” </i> <br />  <br /> For decades, Stephen Hawking has been fascinated by black holes. He believes that if we understood the challenges they pose to the very nature of space and time, we could unlock the secrets of the universe. In these conversational pieces, Hawking’s sense of wonder is infectious as he holds forth on what we know about black holes, what we still <i>don’t</i> know, and theoretical answers to more specific questions, such as: <i>What would happen if you ever got sucked into one?</i> Annotated and with an introduction by BBC News science editor David Shukman, featuring whimsical and illuminating illustrations, <i>Black Holes </i>offers a candid peek into one of the great scientific mysteries of all time.<br />  <br /> <b>Praise for Stephen Hawking</b><br /> <b> </b><br /> “[Hawking] can explain the complexities of cosmological physics with an engaging combination of clarity and wit. . . . His is a brain of extraordinary power.”<b>—<i>The New York Review of Books</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “Hawking clearly possesses a natural teacher’s gifts—easy, good-natured humor and an ability to illustrate highly complex propositions with analogies plucked from daily life.”<b>—<i>The New York Times</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “A high priest of physics, one of a handful of theorists who may be on the verge of reading God’s mind.”<b>—<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b>

<b>The bestselling author of <i>Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home</i> offers an intriguing new assessment of modern day science that will radically change the way we view what is possible.<br /><br /></b>In <i>Science Set Free</i> (originally published to acclaim in the UK as<i> The Science Delusion</i>), Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world's most innovative scientists, shows the ways in which science is being constricted by assumptions that have, over the years, hardened into dogmas. Such dogmas are not only limiting, but dangerous for the future of humanity.<br /> <br />According to these principles, all of reality is material or physical; the world is a machine, made up of inanimate matter; nature is purposeless; consciousness is nothing but the physical activity of the brain; free will is an illusion; God exists only as an idea in human minds, imprisoned within our skulls. <br /> <br />But should science be a belief-system, or a method of enquiry? Sheldrake shows that the materialist ideology is moribund; under its sway, increasingly expensive research is reaping diminishing returns while societies around the world are paying the price. <br /> <br />In the skeptical spirit of true science, Sheldrake turns the ten fundamental dogmas of materialism into exciting questions, and shows how all of them open up startling new possibilities for discovery.<br /> <br /><i>Science Set Free</i> will radically change your view of what is real and what is possible.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
