Book Summary: A celebration of the life and engineering achievements of Isambard Kingdom Brunel by two of the world's foremost authorities. In his lifetime, Isambard Kingdom Brunel towered over his profession. Today, he remains the most famous engineer in history, the epitome of the volcanic creative forces which brought about the Industrial Revolution - and brought modern society into being. Brunel's extraordinary talents were drawn out by some remarkable opportunities - above all his appointment as engineer to the new Great Western Railway at the age of 26 - but it was his nature to take nothing for granted, and to look at every project, whether it was the longest railway yet planned, or the largest ship ever imagined, from first principles. A hard taskmaster to those who served him, he ultimately sacrificed his own life to his work in his tragically early death at the age of 53. His legacy, though, is all around us, in the railways and bridges that he personally designed, and in his wider influence. This fascinating new book draws on Brunel's own diaries, letters and sketchbooks to understand his life, times, and work.

Genre: Performing Arts

Book Summary: In 1969, a low-budget biker movie, Easy Rider, shocked Hollywood with its stunning success. An unabashed celebration of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll (onscreen and off), Easy Rider heralded a heady decade in which a rebellious wave of talented young filmmakers invigorated the movie industry. In Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, Peter Biskind takes us on the wild ride that was Hollywood in the '70s, an era that produced such modern classics as The Godfather, Chinatown, Shampoo, Nashville, Taxi Driver, and Jaws. Easy Riders, Raging Bulls vividly chronicles the exuberance and excess of the times: the startling success of Easy Rider and the equally alarming circumstances under which it was made, with drugs, booze, and violent rivalry between costars Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda dominating the set; how a small production company named BBS became the guiding spirit of the youth rebellion in Hollywood and how, along the way, some of its executives helped smuggle Huey Newton out of the country; how director Hal Ashby was busted for drugs and thrown in jail in Toronto; why Martin Scorsese attended the Academy Awards with an FBI escort when Taxi Driver was nominated; how George Lucas, gripped by anxiety, compulsively cut off his own hair while writing Star Wars, how a modest house on Nicholas Beach occupied by actresses Margot Kidder and Jennifer Salt became the unofficial headquarters for the New Hollywood; how Billy Friedkin tried to humiliate Paramount boss Barry Diller; and how screenwriter/director Paul Schrader played Russian roulette in his hot tub. It was a time when an "anything goes" experimentation prevailed both on the screen and off. After the success of Easy Rider, young film-school graduates suddenly found themselves in demand, and directors such as Francis Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, George Lucas, and Martin Scorsese became powerful figures. Even the new generation of film stars -- Nicholson, De Niro, Hoffman, Pacino, and Dunaway -- seemed a breed apart from the traditional Hollywood actors. Ironically, the renaissance would come to an end with Jaws and Star Wars, hugely successful films that would create a blockbuster mentality and crush innovation. Based on hundreds of interviews with the directors themselves, producers, stars, agents, writers, studio executives, spouses, and ex-spouses, this is the full, candid story of Hollywood's last golden age. Never before have so many celebrities talked so frankly about one another and about the drugs, sex, and money that made so many of them crash and burn. By turns hilarious and shocking, Easy Riders, Raging Bulls is the ultimate behind-the-scenes account of Hollywood at work and play.

Book Summary: In this original eBook novella by the New York Times bestselling author of The King’s Deception, globetrotting intelligence agent Cotton Malone is lured into dangerous intrigue surrounding the world’s most famous royals—and uncovers a murderous conspiracy of terrorists and traitors, all born from an ancient tale of Saxon history. “In Malone, [Steve] Berry has created a classic, complex hero.”—USA Today In England to participate in the trial of suspected international terrorists, Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is mysteriously summoned to an audience with the Queen of England. A cryptic call has warned of looming danger to the ailing queen’s son and grandson—the next two heirs in line for the throne. And when the source of that ominous information, a notorious tabloid publisher, dies mysteriously, the royal family has reason to fear a genuine conspiracy. But they also suspect that the enemy lies within—and no one at Buckingham Palace, or even the nation’s own Secret Intelligence Service, can be trusted. Now it’s up to Malone to discover the truth. Matching wits with a power-mad politician and a vicious royal blue blood, he must race against time through the streets of London to the forbidden reaches of Iceland, all to stop a monstrous plot to seize the monarchy—one that stretches back to the time of Arthur. Praise for Steve Berry and his Cotton Malone series “Malone, a hero with a personal stake in the proceedings, is a welcome respite from the cold, calculating superspies who litter the genre.”—Entertainment Weekly “Steve Berry gets better and better with each new book.”—The Huffington Post “Savvy readers . . . cannot go wrong with Cotton Malone.”—Library Journal “Berry raises this genre’s stakes.”—The New York Times “I love this guy.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child

Book Summary: In the writing of this awesome undertaking, Dr. Leon Abbott takes us behind the dark curtain of God's creation. We are invited into the deeper waters of God where babes desire to go. At the same time, the author believes that in these times of human existence, babes must be taught how to swim in the deeper waters of God's revelation and knowledge. On nothing God stood, and from within himself, creation was birthed; every time, he spoke the phrase "Let it be." When he said, "Let there be light," light appeared. And God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters." And God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear," and it was so. And God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, herb-yielding seeds, and the fruit-yielding trees, after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth," and it was so. And God the Creator said, It was good. After man had become a sinner, man still had some good in him because of God's DNA within him. Man was still good enough for God to give heaven best (Jesus) for man's redemption. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10, KJV). The phrase "Let there be" continued until he reached the crown of his creation: man. It is here that God the Creator reaches down and forms man out of the dust of the ground, which he had carried within himself in the spiritual realm. He reaches down again and touch man by breathing into man's nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. It wasn't long after this that God placed the man he birthed in the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. He commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" (Genesis 2:16""17, KJV). Tell a child or someone what they can't do, and often time they will do what they been instructed not to do. In this writing, the author discusses even the Divine Assignment of Death and how Death came alive from the dead. Death couldn't give life to death; who gave life to the cold hands of death? The author gives us a clear answer as to why man needs Jesus. In the giving of his Divine Assignment, God takes man from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Moses was just an ordinary sheep/animal watcher until God gave him his Divine Assignment. We too, like Moses, are just merely existing until we begin carrying out our Divine Assignment in love for God and mankind. Your Divine Assignment will not only bless you, but it has been ordained by God to be a blessing to others as well. We continue to be blessed by the trees as they give off oxygen, and the sun that gives us light and heat, as they continue to carry out their God-given Divine Assignment. Why couldn't the fallen angels be redeemed by God when they failed in carrying out their Divine Assignment? The answer to this question and more is within this work of Dr. Leon Abbott.
