The Thinking Pilot's Flight Manual (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: In a provocative and sometimes controversial style, this guide starts where standard-issue flight training manuals leave off. The Thinking Pilot guides you deeply into topics that weren't taught in flight training-everything from how to really do a preflight, through keeping your passengers happy, scud running, precautionary landings, and how to survive a crash. It includes a detailed introduction to flying floats, skis, aerobatics, and classic airplanes; probes some of aviation's dirty little secrets, explodes myths, and presents the best, most succinct guide to flying tailwheel airplanes ever written. Rick Durden was once described as aviation's Renaissance Man. He is an Airline Transport-rated pilot with experience in some 200 types of airplanes, a practicing aviation attorney who has been involved in hundreds of aircraft accident cases, writer, aviation magazine editor, safety counselor, flight instructor, volunteer pilot in remote areas of the U.S. and Central America, and has been the executive director of a nonprofit conservation organization making use of aircraft and volunteer pilots throughout much of North America.

Foundations of Amateur Radio (6 Book Series)
From Book 1:

In this volume you'll follow my initial journey through the community, what to buy when you start, how to participate in the community, things to practice, what the first steps look like once you have a license, playing in radio contests, encouragement and sharing.

Starting in the wonderful hobby of Amateur or HAM Radio can be daunting. Using low power with little experience is challenging but can be very rewarding. Originally published as a weekly podcast, this volume contains a year of edited audio podcast transcripts, each article looks at a different aspect of the hobby, how you as a beginner might fit in and get the very best from the hobby.

The podcast came about because our community has a deep fascination with upgrading and gaining more responsibilities. In these pages I outline many of the amazing attributes and activities that a beginning or aspiring amateur can discover with the base level license - in Australia the "Foundation" or "F-call" license.

My aim is to inspire and encourage new entrants into our community and to rekindle the fire for old hams, to explore and experience all that we have to offer without fear of failure. Here I share my own journey through this experience and explain what I've learned along the way about the hobby, the community, the science and technology.

Gardeners & Growers (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: This is the first of 4 books of transcriptions of a series of Gardeners and Growers workshops run by Jimmy and Lisa MacDonald, who first appeared on the Keshe foundation Knowledge Seeker workshops in mid 2015 with some inspiring reports of their experiments growing commercial lettuce in an aquaponics system in New South Wales, Australia. With a small bottle of CO2 GANS immersed in the water flow they reported getting fantastic results in terms of the health and growth of the lettuce, and also the incredibly long time the lettuce remained healthy and edible in the fridge…
This went on to further experiments over the next year, and then in November 2016 they began to give this inspiring series of fortnightly workshops with public teaching for Gardeners and Growers everywhere. Watching these workshops on YouTube we realized that this was a great resource for people everywhere, not only to get fantastic results in our gardens, but also as a simple and understandable doorway into the Magrav and Plasma technology, with all of its other applications, including Free Energy, Water and Soil purification, Medical and Healing applications, Space ship construction and flight, and even finally to World Peace…

A History of the British Merchant Navy (5 Book Series)
From Book 1:

‘The Trident of Neptune is the Sceptre of the World.’ Antoine-Marin Lemierre

By the 19th century, Great Britain truly ruled the waves.

But where did the journey to dominance began?

This is the first part of that story.

Starting in 1500, the narrative begins with emergence of the Tudor navy during the Elizabethan period when England defied the might of the Spanish Empire on the world stage.

It continues through to the Act of Union in 1707 when Great Britain was created and the point when the naval and mercantile sea-services parted company.

Providing an overview of the 18th century merchant navy and it analyses the conflicts during the Seven Years War and ends with an account of the slave trade until its abolition in 1807.

Prize-winning maritime author Richard Woodman restores Great Britain's mercantile marine to its rightful place in the nation's history - alongside that of the Royal Navy, to whose glories it contributed - but not buried beneath it. Truly this is a surprising history.

‘If Neptune s Trident sets the standard for what is to follow - we can at least rest assured that there is a series that truly does justice to our proud merchant maritime past.’ Nautilus UK Telegraph

‘Richard Woodman tells many a good tale in this first volume and it is fascinating to read. I highly recommend this first volume in the Neptune s Trident for anyone with an interest in the early modern period. If the rest of the series is as good as this one, they should all be on the bookshelves of those studying the history of Britain, from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries.’ Open History

Captain Richard Martin Woodman LVO is an English novelist and naval historian who retired in 1997 from a 37 year nautical career, mainly working for Trinity House, to write full-time. His main work is 14 volumes about the career of Nathaniel Drinkwater, and shorter series about James Dunbar and William Kite, but he also written a range of factual books about 18th century and WW2 history.
