Now, Captain John "Black Jack" Geary, who returned to the fleet after a hundred-year suspended animation, must keep the Alliance one step ahead of its merciless foe...

For years there have been dozens of books about training and how to do it more effectively, with more impact, with greater focus on performance, and so on, and on.

Courageous Visions: How to Unleash Passionate Energy in Your Life and Your Organization

by Martha Lasley

A Course in Combinatorics

by J. H. van Lint

This is the second edition of a popular book on combinatorics, a subject dealing with ways of arranging and distributing objects, and which involves ideas from geometry, algebra and analysis.

The book is ideal for courses on combinatorical mathematics at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. Working mathematicians and scientists will also find it a valuable introduction and reference.

Course in General Linguistics

by Ferdinand La Saussure

The Cours de linguistique generale, reconstructed from students' notes after Saussure's death in 1913, founded modern linguistic theory by breaking the study of language free from a merely historical and comparativist approach. Saussure's new method, now known as Structuralism, has since been applied to such diverse areas as art, architecture, folklore, literary criticism, and philosophy.

A Course in Happiness

by Mardi Horowitz

A three-part course in one of the most vital subjects known to man: how to be happy. If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands . . . The simple lyrics of this nursery-school song tune small children in to the important life skill of recognizing and acknowledging good feelings within themselves. For adults, getting in touch with a sense of happiness is rarely so simple. It seems what so many of us need is an education on the subject . . . a virtual Course in Happiness. In this book, Mardi Horowitz draws on more than forty years of experience as a psychiatrist to provide readers with just this. According to Dr. Horowitz, in order to identify the root causes of our discontent, it is necessary to consider all the experiences, memories, and emotions that constitute selfhood, the true 'I' in each of us. A Course in Happiness guides readers through a strenuous but deeply rewarding education in mastering the three essential life skills that underlie the achievement of this level of self-understanding: * INTEGRATION: the ability to assemble all the pieces of one's self into a whole, understood, and respected 'me. ' * INTIMACY: the capacity to remain closely connected to the warmth of relationships with family, friends, and others in a social community. * INTEGRITY: an awareness of which of one's values are most dear and which are lower in priority-and then to be true to what is most important, even in the midst of conflict. A Course in Happiness offers a road map for achieving genuine contentment in life.

The Course of Empire (Jao #1)

by Eric Flint K. D. Wentworth

WOULD THEY DESTROY EARTH IN ORDER TO SAVE IT? Conquered by the Jao twenty years ago, the Earth is shackled under alien tyranny-and threatened by the even more dangerous Ekhat, who are sending a genocidal extermination fleet to the solar system. Humanity's only chance rests with an unusual pair of allies: a young Jao prince, newly arrived to Terra to assume his duties, and a young human woman brought up amongst the Jao occupiers. But both are under pressure from the opposing forces-a cruel Jao viceroy on one side, determined to drown all opposition in blood; a reckless human resistance on the other, perfectly prepared to shed it. Added to the mix is the fact that only by adopting some portions of human technology and using human sepoy troops can the haughty Jao hope to defeat the oncoming Ekhat attack-and then only by fighting the battle within the Sun itself.

The Course of Human Events

by David Mccullough

On May 15th, 2003 David McCullough presented The Course of Human Events as The 2003 Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities in Washington, DC. The Jefferson Lecture is a tribute to McCullough's lifetime investigation of history. In this short speech, this master historian tracks his fascination with all things historical to his early days in Pittsburgh where he "learned to love history by way of books" in bookshops and at the local library. McCullough eloquently leads us through the founding fathers' attraction to history, letting us in on his composition of 1776 as well as the Pulitzer Prize winning John Adams. His obvious affection for history is inspiring, because it encompasses the whole reach of the human drama. In McCullough's able hands, history truly "is a larger way of looking at life."

The Course Syllabus

by Barbara J. Millis Judith Grunert O'Brien Robert M. Diamond Margaret W. Cohen

When it was first published in 1997, The Course Syllabus became the gold standard reference for both new and experienced college faculty.

Because faculty members are now deeply committed to engaging students in learning, the syllabus has evolved into a useful, if lengthy, document.
