Big Markdown on Lawrence of Arabia Biography

Hero: The Life and Legend of Lawrence of Arabia. By Michael Korda. Rated 4 1/2 stars from 110 reviews at the present moment. Print list price $17.99; Kindle price now $1.99. http://www.amazon.com/Hero-Life-Lege...ence+of+Arabia. The ebook may be available elsewhere; I did not check elsewhere.

From Michael Korda, author of the New York Times bestselling Eisenhower biography Ike and the captivating Battle of Britain book With Wings Like Eagles, comes the critically-acclaimed definitive biography of T. E. Lawrence—the legendary British soldier, strategist, scholar, and adventurer whose exploits as “Lawrence of Arabia” created a legacy of mythic proportions in his own lifetime. Many know T.E. Lawrence from David Lean’s Oscar-winning 1962 biopic—based, itself, upon Lawrence’s autobiographical Seven Pillars of Wisdom—but in the tradition of modern biographers like John Meacham, David McCullough, and Barbara Leaming, Michael Korda’s penetrating new examination reveals new depth and character in the twentieth century’s quintessential English hero.

Big Kindle Markdown on the Elements of Expression. Whispersync Cheap, Too.

I ain't got no need for this here book myself. I can git my point across jest fine. But I reckon there's sum people who don't have that knack and mite need this here book. So here it tis.

The Elements of Expression: Putting Thoughts into Words. By Arthur Plotnik. Rated 5 stars, but from only 4 reviews at the present moment. Print list price $16.95; digital list price $16.95; Kindle price now $1.99. http://www.amazon.com/Elements-Expre...hts+into+Words.

The Whispersync audio version is available for just $3.99.(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...p_dp_narration). So, for less than $6 ($1.99 + $3.99) you can get both the audiobook and the ebook. I wish I still had some Audible credits left . . . .

More than ever in this completely updated edition, The Elements of Expression helps word users "light up the cosmos or the written page or the face across the table" as they seek the radiance of expressiveness—the vivid expression of thoughts, feelings, and observations.

Nothing kills radiance like the murky, generic language dominating today's talk, airwaves, and posts. It tugs at our every sentence, but using it to express anything beyond the ordinary is like flapping the tongue to escape gravity.
The Elements of Expression offers an adventurous and inspiring flight into words that truly share what's percolating in our minds. Here writers, presenters, students, bloggers—even well intentioned "Mad Men"—will discover language to convey precise feelings, move audiences, delight and persuade.

No snob or scold, the acclaimed word-maven Arthur Plotnik explores the full range of expressiveness, from playful "tough talk" to finely wrought literature, with hundreds of rousing examples. Confessing that we are all "like a squid in its ink" when first groping for luminous expression, he shines his amiable wit on the elements leading, ultimately, to language of "fissionable intensity."

Big Markdown on James MacGregor Burns' First Volume of The American Experiment

You may have noticed from the amount of posts that I do in the subject that history is one of my favorite genres.

The Vineyards of Liberty is the first volume of James MacGregor Burns' magisterial trilogy on the history of America, called The American Experiment. I have to assume that markdowns of the other two volumes will be forthcoming soon. However, you may be like me, being more interested in the early history of this country and, therefore, not so interested in owning the last two volumes anyway.

The Vineyards of Liberty (The American Experiment). By James MacGregor Burns. Rated 5 stars, but from only 1 review at the present moment (this is hard to explain, because this book is a classic that has been around for many years). Digital list price $9.99; Kindle price now $1.99. http://www.amazon.com/Vineyard-Liber...+Experiment%29. If you would like to go ahead and purchase the entire trilogy, you can get it on mobi/Kindle for a good price ($9.99) at http://www.amazon.com/American-Exper...nds+of+Freedom. The ebook is available (ePub, of course) and discountable at Kobo. Money is tight in the GtrsRGr8 household right now, so he has gone the Kobo route. The best discount available at the present time looks to be 30% and there is a multi-use code "saku39" (without the quotation marks) which will get you a quick 30% ($0.60) off at checkout, for a total price on the book of only $1.39.

The first volume of Burns’s stunning account of American history, from the birth of the Constitution to the dawn of the Civil War

The years between 1787 and 1863 witnessed the development of the American Nation—its society, politics, customs, culture, and, most important, the development of liberty. Burns explores the key events in the republic’s early decades, as well as the roles of heroes from Washington to Lincoln and of lesser-known figures. Captivating and insightful, Burns’s history combines the color and texture of early American life with meticulous scholarship. Focusing on the tensions leading up to the Civil War, Burns brilliantly shows how Americans became divided over the meaning of Liberty.
Vineyard of Liberty is a sweeping and engrossing narrative of America’s formative years.

Hill 112: The Battle of the Odon

Hill 112: The Battle of the Odon is currently $1.66/£0.99 at Amazon. Normal price appears to be about £4.99.

Amazon US / Amazon UK

One three-star review at Amazon.com, 4.5 from 24 reviews at Amazon UK.

Quote:
Over a month after the D-Day landings the Allies were still confined to the Normandy peninsula. The German line was anchored by the medieval town of Caen, which the British were supposed to have occupied on D-Day. The key to capturing Caen was Hill 112, known to the Germans as "Kalverienberg" (or "Mount Calvary").

Under pressure from Churchill, Montgomery launched a major offensive. Unfortunately, German reinforcements delayed by Allied bombing were now arriving in the Caen area. The British found themselves facing no less than four SS divisions, the 1st, 2nd, 9th and 10th and the Tigers of the 502nd SS Heavy Panzer Regiment. An all-out Allied effort, including heavy bombers and naval bombardment, was required to secure the final victory.

This new addition to the Battleground Europe series details all the action around Hill 112. Numerous illustrations and maps complement the lively text.

Great find. Unfortunately, I waited too long to grab it--it's up to $1.99 now. I went to Kobo to see if their price was in the same neighborhood, and I could squeeze a few more cents from the price with a discount code, but their price was $7.39.

I consider myself fairly knowledgeable, though by no means a student, of World War II, but I was not aware, or had forgotten about "the battle of Odon." Wikipedia notes that there were actually two battles, one in June and one in July, 1944. Both were tactical loses for the Allies, but strategic victories. Fascinating stuff. As soon as I can get some time, I want to go on YouTube and see if there are any documentaries on the battles.

Thanks. Karma headed your way!

Hot Off the Press! Er . . . Uh . . . Word Processor--Forensic Science Kindle, & Free!

That's right, it's just (May 29) been published, and the author and/or Amazon are offering this title for free!

Amaze your friends! Earn money in your spare time! Open your own detective agency! Solve cold cases! Be featured on Forensic Files! [Disclaimer: the preceding comments have not been approved by the author, or the publisher, or their legal representatives, G]. Go ahead, what are you waiting on? Download the book! It's free!

Forensic Science. By David Malocco. Rated 5 stars, but from only 1 review, because, like I said, it's just been published. Digital list price $4.95; Kindle price $0.00. http://www.amazon.com/Forensic-Scien...+david+malocco.

True crime and serial killer expert David Elio Malocco (author of Who’s Who Serial Killers, The Top 100) has produced a magic little book here on Forensic Science and Crime Scene Analysis.

The author is a former top criminal lawyer with dual degrees in law and psychology and diplomas in criminal profiling and forensic science.

The book is essentially an introduction to Forensic Science and is the perfect companion for anyone interested in studying forensic science or crime scene analysis; anyone who writes about crime; lawyers, solicitors and barristers involved in criminal law; anyone involved in law enforcement or, in fact, anyone who reads crime novels or watches crime programs on television.

Just how accurate are crime programs like CSI: New York, True Detective, Criminal Minds and Dexter? Apparently, there are far removed from reality and mask the clear division of labor which exists between crime science investigators and law enforcement operatives.

The book is packed full of information and is written in a very easy to read and witty style – nothing like a text book. It also contains a very helpful Glossary of Terms at the back as well as a comprehensive list of reference books for the serious student.

The first part of the book deals with crime scene analysis – what happens at a crime scene, or as David Elio Malocco puts it – “what’s supposed to happen” and covers the basics like crime scene definition, recognition and documentation. It lists exactly the sort of evidence crimes scene investigators look for at a crime scene.

The second part is an introduction to forensic science. Once the evidence is collected at the crime various procedures and tests are carried out in the laboratory to help link the evidence to the crime. It covers such diverse topics as fingerprints, firearms, ballistics, computers, autopsies, forensic pathology, poisons and forensic toxicology, the identification of decaying bodies and skeletons, cranio-facial reconstruction, serology, fraud, DNA and cyber crime as well as providing a very comprehensive section on search warrants and other aspect of law and criminal evidence.

But, perhaps the most enjoyable chapter is the tongue in cheek one entitled Committing the Perfect Crime which could have been called Everything You Need to Know about How Not to get Caught but were Afraid to Ask.

The book is a classic companion for anyone interested in crime.

The Four Pillars of Investing: Lessons for Building a Winning Portfolio
by William J. Bernstein

is $1.99 at

B&N http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/four...=9780071759175

Amazon (as part of Kindle Daily Deals) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...d_i=1000677541

Below is the blurb:
The classic guide to constructing a solid portfolio—with out a financial advisor! “With relatively little effort, you can design and assemble an investment portfolio that, because of its wide diversification and minimal expenses, will prove superior to the most professionally managed accounts.Great intelligence and good luck are not required.“ William Bernstein‘s commonsense approach to portfolio construction has served investors well during the past turbulent decade—and it‘s what made The Four Pillars of Investing an instant classic when it was first published nearly a decade ago. This down-to-earth book lays out in easy-to-understand prose the four essential topics that every investor must master: the relationship of risk and reward, the history of the market, the psychology of the investor and the market, and the folly of taking financial advice from investment salespeople. Bernstein pulls back the curtain to reveal what really goes on in today‘s financial industry as he outlines a simple program for building wealth while controlling risk.Straightforward in its presentation and generous in its real-life examples, The Four Pillars of Investing presents a no-nonsense discussion of: The art and science of mixing different asset classes into an effective blend The dangers of actively picking stocks, as opposed to investing in the whole market Behavioral finance and how state of mind can adversely affect decision making Reasons the mutual fund and brokerage industries, rather than your partners, are often your most direct competitors Strategies for managing all of your assets—savings, 401(k)s, home equity—as one portfolio Investing is not a destination. It is a journey, and along the way are stockbrokers, journalists, and mutual fund companies whose interests are diametrically opposed to yours. More relevant today than ever, The Four Pillars of Investing shows you how to determine your own financial direction and assemble an investment program with the sole goal of building long-term wealth for you and your family.

Great post, thanks.

Though greatly overshadowed by the major theatres of operation--the European and Pacific--in World War II, the China-Burma theatre was the theatre in which the Allied soldiers had probably the greatest overall casualty rate and experienced the greatest suffering. This was not caused so much by the enemy, the Japanese, but by the disease and malnutrition caused by day-in and day-out habitation in the jungles and with the logistical problems of resupplying them in those areas. This was only exacerbated when monsoon season arrived, which brought constant rain for weeks on end. Those soldiers truly suffered a lot, but sadly, are not remembered or honored today as greatly as their fellow soldiers who served in Europe and the Pacific.
