Slave Shipwreck Saga (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: A story in 2 parts, 'now' and 'then’ — come along on a gripping saga of adventure, intrigue and discovery of an ancient shipwreck that has no identity; until 30 years pass and the Smithsonian fills in the missing pieces — then leap back two centuries to witness a sometimes disturbing tale of brutality, exhilarating and the triumph of human courage… The Praying Nun will leave you shocked, surprised and pondering human nature in all its forms. Mostly, it will inject elation into your day.

Part I - A *True* Story of Discovery and Excavation, 1985
In 1985 an uncharted shipwreck was discovered off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa. Two divers, the author and his friend, salvage artifacts from the ocean floor and try to identify the ship’s identity and cargo. In 2015 the mystery was finally solved by the Smithsonian Museum of Washington. The ship was the São José de Africa, a slaver that ran aground in 1794 with 400 slaves aboard, half lost on that day, the other half salvaged and sold the next day to defray costs. At this time, the recovered artifacts reside in the National Museum of African American History and Culture in the US, in 2027 they will be returned to the Iziko museum in Cape Town.

Part II – A Love Story of Terror and Tragedy, 1794
Naked and shackled, Chikunda, and his new wife Mkiwa are heaved aboard the slaver São José off the coast of Mozambique, bound for the slave markets of Brazil. Once below decks, down in the stinking holds with 400 other captives, Chikunda instinctively knows that it will all be over. When the Captain discovers that Chikunda and his wife are Christians, the couple are spared a horrific fate below decks, but this reprieve does not protect them from what fate has in store.

The story of Chikunda and Mkiwa, though fictional, is based on the best known facts about the ship and the slave trade in general as contained in records, news reports, and journals available at the maratime archives, through accounts reported by the Captain, crew and from others who witnessed the disaster and its aftermath.

Characteristics of a Golf Architect
“He should, above all, have a sense of proportion and be able to come to a prompt decision as to what is the greatest good to the greatest number.”
– Alister MacKenzie

Psychology of Design
“The designer of a course should start off on his work in a sympathetic frame of mind for the weak, and at the same time be as severe as he likes with the first-class player.”
– H.S. Colt

The Design Process
“The course should be so interesting that even the plus man is constantly stimulated to improve his game in attempting shots he has hitherto been unable to play.”
– Alister MacKenzie

Greens and Greenkeeping

– H.S. Colt

Field Expedient SDR (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Software Defined Radios are revolutionizing wireless communications, but getting started can be a challenge. Much of the available SDR training veers either towards highly mathematical engineering classes or radio cookbooks with little explanation for the steps taken.

Introduction to Software Defined Radio steers between these two extremes by leveraging knowledge you already have but didn't know was applicable to radio technology. Through a series of hands-on exercises, you'll learn:
- to use gnuradio, the leading SDR software tool
- how analog signals are sampled
- when and how to use decimation and interpolation
- how filtering, tuning, and demodulating work
- how all the pieces of an SDR-based radio fit together

This first volume of our Field Expedient SDR series will take you from being a complete novice to a capable user. There will still be much to learn, but you'll be in a solid position to learn it.

My Projects Collection From Instructables (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: I always like making stuff. And I always like sharing them with other people who feel interested about them. Although I’ve been doing so through my blog since 2008 but instructables.com has given me a whole new level of motivation to make and share my projects in all aspects of life in has really unleashed my creativity.

I remember joining instructables.com on 2008 and I always wanted to share my own projects. I thought it was only for certain type of people. It was on April 2013 when I’ve decided to stop procrastination and to start making my own instructable article and participated in one of the contests held by the website.

The website represents a healthy collaborative environment for Makers and DIY enthusiasts. You can share your projects and all other people can like, leave comments, follow your profile for future work or even send you messages asking about how a projects was done.

You can even participate in contests and win cool prizes.

I started making instructables to share my work and also for documenting all my projects. This has helped me getting better both in making projects and useful instructables and in documenting them regularly as I create them.

Then I’ve decided to collect all my instructables in a collection of books that makes them easy to read offline and for better documentation for myself. To make it more convenient for my readers to select subject they like much, I’ve collected my instructables into three groups.

At the date of publishing this collection, I’ve collected forty of my instructables on three books

Book One: Avionics, Life Hacks, Motivation, Green Energy

Book Two: Embedded Systems, Electronics

Book Three: Wood Burn, Art, Plants

There I Wuz! (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: "The altimeter spins backwards in a blur, like a mad scientist's time travel clock."

So many of you have asked for more of my adventures in the sky, and I've found a cool way to do it! For the first time, here's a collection of aeronautical adventures from such publications as Airways Magazine, NYCAviation.com, Plane & Pilot magazine and my blog (capnaux.com). Also included are several unpublished works, guest stories from fellow pilot-authors, photos, links to videos and other gems.

Inside you'll find stories all the way back to when my feet first left terra firma in a hang glider as a daring (uh, make that foolish) young teen. From my extreme initiation as a young bush pilot in Alaska to fighting off hurricanes in the Caribbean, to an explosive decompression in a heavy airliner, I invite you to join me in the cockpit on an adventure spanning over three decades!

Eric Auxier is a captain with a major U.S. airline, with over 20,000 hours of flying in a career spanning well over three decades.

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.
