Non-Fiction (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Winston Churchill never trusted Hitler. When France fell to the Nazis, Britain was alone in their fight against Germany. There were no Allies, no second front...there was no one. Only the Axis powers and neutral countries that didn't want to get involved in the war. Standing alone, Churchill rallied the British people by convincing them it would be better to fight for their freedom than to surrender. So began the Battle of Britain and what Churchill would call their nation's finest hour.

Learn Physics with Calculus Step-by-Step (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: LEVEL: This book covers physics with calculus at the university level. (If instead you're looking for a trig-based physics book, search for ISBN 1941691145.) Note that the calculus-based edition includes all of material from thetrig-based book, plus ample coverage of the calculus-based material.

DESCRIPTION: This combination of physics study guide and workbook focuses on essential problem-solving skills and strategies:
  • Fully solved examples with explanations show you step-by-step how to solve standard university physics problems.
  • Handy charts tabulate the symbols, what they mean, and their SI units.
  • Problem-solving strategies are broken down into steps and illustrated with examples.
  • Answers, hints, intermediate answers, and explanations are provided for every practice exercise.
  • Terms and concepts which are essential to solving physics problems are defined and explained.
VOLUME: This volume covers motion, including uniform acceleration, calculus-based motion, vector addition, projectile motion, Newton's laws, center of mass integrals, conservation of energy, collisions, the scalar and vector product, rotation, moment of inertia integrals, satellites, and more. (Vol. 2 covers electricity and magnetism, while Vol. 3 covers waves, fluids, heat, sound, and light. Vol.'s 2-3 will be released in the spring of 2017.)

AUTHOR: The author, Dr. Chris McMullen, has over 20 years of experience teaching university physics in California, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Louisiana (and has also taught physics to gifted high school students). Dr. McMullen currently teaches physics at Northwestern State University of Louisiana. He has also published a half-dozen papers on the collider phenomenology of superstring-inspired large extra dimensions. Chris McMullen earned his Ph.D. in particle physics from Oklahoma State University (and his M.S. in physics from California State University, Northridge).

Dr. McMullen is well-known for:
  • engaging physics students in challenging ideas through creativity
  • breaking difficult problems down into manageable steps
  • providing clear and convincing explanations to subtle issues
  • his mastery of physics and strong background in mathematics
  • helping students become more fluent in practical math skills
MATH REVIEW: Separate chapters cover essential calculus skills (like derivatives and relevant integration techniques) as well as essential algebra, geometry, and trigonometry skills.

SOLUTIONS: The back of the book includes a detailed section of hints, intermediate answers, final answers, and explanations to help you solve each problem one step at a time. It's like having a physics tutor in the back of the book. (However, if you would prefer complete solutions, search for ISBN 194169117X.)

USES: This study guide workbook can be used to:
  • learn how to solve fundamental problems in physics with calculus
  • find fully-solved examples of standard physics problems
  • develop fluency in physics via practice exercises that include answers, hints, and explanations
  • quickly find the most essential physics terms, concepts, and formulas
  • prepare for the AP physics exam
  • review for standardized exams, such as AP Physics or the fundamentals of the GR

Power Reads (5 Book Series)
From Book 1: The plane can't land. It can't turn back. And the fuel's running out.

Reaching the end of a four hour flight, the crew of Phoenix Flight 375 find themselves facing an impossible dilemma: terrible weather, a natural disaster and a silent killer force them to decide not how to live, but how they might have to die. Half of the passengers want to survive. The others want a quick and painless end. They have one hour of fuel remaining, and then their choices will be over.

At thirty-seven thousand feet and five hundred miles per hour, you're not in control of anything. On this flight, neither are the pilots...

REVIEW

Praise for Dean Crawford:

"The fossilized remains of a 7,000-year-old creature dug from the sands of the Negev Desert in Israel become the bones of contention in Dean Crawford's fast-paced debut thriller... The book neatly threads together a wild variety of plotlines." - Wall Street Journal

“… cleverly introduced premise… assured pacing and plotting…” - Publishers Weekly

“The action is frenetic, in the vein of Matthew Reilly’s Scarecrow series. Crawford is an able storyteller who smoothly orchestrates the plot’s twists and turns… ” Kirkus Reviews

“… brilliant high-concept, high-octane thriller….” - The Guardian

"A fast-paced and entertaining yarn." - Melbourne Age

"Partly mythical read, part thriller this pacy tale is a page turner guaranteed to keep you up late." - The Sun

"Get the cameras rolling—Indiana Jones meets Alien. What a combination of mystery, suspense, and unspeakable horror. I loved it!" - R.L. Stine

“This is an amazingly good, intelligently told novel by an exciting new British author.” - Eurocrime

"Earth-shattering intrigue, hyperdrive action and a desperate race to save humanity, cranked up to the max with scarily realistic science and apocalyptic religion thrown in for good measure . . . a major new talent has hit the mystery thriller scene!" - Scott Mariani

Ships at War (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: The books by Allan A. Murray are noted for their detailed research and historical accuracy. Strong narratives move the reader through military history events that are less well known or not previously written about with multiple layers cleverly integrated to reveal the overall context, the major events and the role of key protagonists. Elements of the rich military heritage of Allan's family have been selectively woven into many of the stories to add depth and emotion.

The Series ‘Ships at War’ details the service of a number of ships from the middle of the 20th Century. The connective thread of the Series is the family members of the author who served aboard these ships during World War II. The Series details the service of the ships HMS Arawa and HMA Ships Nepal, Mildura and Australia as well as the merchant vessels SS Iron Chieftain and Iron Knight. The latter two were sunk during the War by Japanese submarines. The three key protagonists are Bobby Forbes, his brother Arthur Forbes, and George Anderson. The Forbes brothers are paternal great uncles of the author and George Anderson is the maternal grandfather. Between them, they served in every ocean, against every foe and their sea time encompassed every year of the War. All three survived the War.

This book is a detailed description of the service in early World War II of the armed merchant cruiser HMS Arawa. No stranger to drama, for 15 years she transported passengers between Australasia and England amid financial collapses, corporate restructures, route changes and even a name change. At the outbreak of World War II, TSS Arawa was hastily converted to an armed merchant cruiser in Sydney, Australia. With no armour plating, seven 1898-vintage 6-inch guns and a crew of mainly Australian Naval Reservists, this unglamorous warship was dispatched to Hong Kong before serving in the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. Her two years of service saw HMS Arawa at the centre of a diplomatic incident between the United Kingdom and Japan; be offered as a sacrificial lamb to German surface raiders and warships hunting Allied merchant vessel convoys; and duel with German and Italian submarines and aircraft in the Battle of the Atlantic. This book tells for the first time the tale of each of these dramas and more. They are indicative of the experience of many of the armed merchant cruisers in World War II.
