My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla

My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla by Nikola TeslaNikola Tesla has been called the most important man of the twentieth century. Certainly he contributed more to the field of electricity, radio, and television than any other person living or dead. Ultimately he died alone and impoverished having driven all of his friends away through his neurotic and eccentric behavior. Tesla was never able to fit into the world that he found himself in. This autobiography, originally serialized in Electrical Experimenter, is an intensely fascinating glimpse into the mind of a genius, his inventions, and the magical world in which he lived.

An Immigrant's Journey into the Cosmos: A Memoir by Dr. N. Y Misconi

Dr. Donald Brownlee Director of NASA's "STARDUST" Mission that flew to comet "Wilde 2" said this about the author:
"One of Dr. Misconi most significant publications was his 1979 Nature paper on streaming of interstellar grains into the solar system. The paper predicted that interstellar dust should stream into the solar system from the direction, the then detectable interstellar gas and it also described...

"All This Fun, and a Paycheck, too?": A collection of stories from a long and satisfying engineering career showing how much fun

"All This Fun, and a Paycheck, too?": A collection of stories from a long and satisfying engineering career showing how much fun by Tom CliffordThe book is a collection of stories: assignments from a long and enjoyable engineering career as well as anecdotes and experiences from summer jobs, vacations, and consulting. The focus is technical; each little story pivots on some scientific principle. The intent is three-fold: a) genealogical: to capture descriptions of a lifetime of fun times and accomplishments for descendents who might be curious about old great-grandpa Tom; b) to inspire a next generation of youngsters to consider pursuit of engineering, science, and critical thought, as a door to a fruitful life; and c) to try to bridge...

The book gives us insight into the survival systems of the brain, and leads us to understand more about ourselves.

Mountains, Minerals, and Me: Thirteen Years Revealing Earth's Mysteries

Mountains, Minerals, and Me: Thirteen Years Revealing Earth's Mysteries by Albert L. Lamarre

Albert Lamarre never imagined that one day he would stare down the barrel of a shotgun pointed at him by a Texas rancher's daughter. Yet, there he was-in the middle of nowhere-held captive by a woman who meant business. Simply put, Lamarre was in this predicament because of his desire to learn more about a rocky outcrop. After all, that is what geologists do.

In his fascinating narrative, Lamarre shares details of his adventures during his thirteen-year career as a minerals exploration geologist. As he vividly recounts his first exposure to the geologic wonders of the western United States, the...

Orbit: M?tley Cr?e: Livin' the Fast Life

Orbit: M?tley Cr?e: Livin' the Fast Life by Michael Frizell

The band known as much for their talent onstage as their antics offstage, Mötley Crüe epitomized the drug-fueled, sex-riddled excess of 1980's metal acts. In the process, they forged a rock dynasty few other bands have been able to achieve. Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, Mick Mars, and Vince Neil became household names, the scourge of the Christian right, and the darlings of the Billboard charts. Read about their meteoric rise and fall in this issue of Orbit!

Mary Seacole

Mary Seacole by Ron RamdinMary Seacole was born in Jamaica in 1805. She came to England in the hope of serving as a nurse in the Crimean War. Through sheer tenacity she eventually travelled to the Crimea with a letter of introduction from an English doctor to Florence Nightingale. After reading this letter, 'the Lady with the Lamp,' said she would be very happy to do all she could to help. Amidst many dangers, and against all odds, the unknown Jamaican nurse won deserved praise for devoted service to the British soldiers she 'mothered' during the Crimean campaign.
