AIMING FOR THE STARS is a memoir of Dr Sphumelele Ndlovu and his life of hardship, which led him to becoming a Scientist. His mother sold chickens to provide for her children, never considering himself worse off than others. The family was poor. Sphumelele’s life was also derailed when strikes caused 24 out of the 28 teachers at his school to abandon their posts in his matric year. Education was Ndlovu’s ticket to a better future, and he knew at a young age, that he wasn’t going to give it up without a fight. Ndlovu’s PhD placed him to be part of a team of scientists set out to measure the distance between the Earth and Moon using lasers. It is the sixth-ever such venture, but the first to be carried out by an African team. A man whose horizon was once confined to the perimeter of a chicken coop now handled tools that allowed his eyes to glide over galaxies.

LEGO is one of the world's best-loved and most familiar brands, adored by generations of children. What is less well known, though, is how close this iconic company came to total collapse in 2003. Brick by Brick is the compelling story of a Danish family-owned company that enjoyed decades of success before its inability to keep in step with a rapidly changing market brought it crashing to earth. It's also the story of an extraordinary recovery. As disaster stared them in the face, the management of LEGO embarked on an audacious and innovative plan to turn their fortunes around, and then painstakingly implemented it. Today, the company is riding high once again, and enjoying results that are the envy of their competitors. Granted unprecedented access to every part of the LEGO Group, David Robertson not only charts each twist in the company's story but explains precisely what went wrong and how it was fixed. His clear-sighted analysis will prove invaluable to all those who want to understand how companies can not only ride the storm of change, but benefit from it.

For over four decades, scientists and engineers from around the world have devoted their lives to the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). And they have never lost hope of finding the greatest needle in the haystack - a sign from outer space that we are not alone. Now, as a result of a groundbreaking computer program called [email protected]~home, millions of ordinary people have joined in the search. [email protected], designed by UC Berkeley's Space Sciences Laboratory, harnesses the idle and unused processing power of over 2.5 million PCs, in what constitutes the world's largest supercomputer, to analyze and process data collected by the Arecibo Radio Observatory. Searching for signs of life from far-off worlds is the ultimate challenge for radioastronomers, because the science of communication spans so many different fields of study-from biology to astronomy to linguistics and information theory. First, scientists must choose which star systems to, search. Then they spend extensive time combing through vast data in search of that one faint signal. But listening for a message is only the starting point of SETI. The real question presents the greater challenge: if we receive a message, how will we communicate with its sender? Rather than speculate about what information we might receive, Beyond Contact discusses how we might carry on complex high-level communication across interstellar distances by building a general purpose language to exchange messages with an intelligent alien race. The book also examines traditional radio (microwave) and laser (optical) wave communication techniques employed by SETI researchers and looks at ways to receive and transmit messages. In addition, it provides an overview of the Drake and Brin equations, as well as the Rare Earth Hypothesis. Through a process of elimination, these theories help determine the number of star systems in the universe that could harbor intelligent life. And they shed light on whether Earth - and the development of life here-is just an aberration or the tip of an iceberg.

The nineteenth daughter of a local village leader in rural Afghanistan, Fawzia Koofi was left to die in the sun after birth by her mother. But she survived, and perseverance in the face of extreme hardship has defined her life ever since. Despite the abuse of her family, the exploitative Russian and Taliban regimes, the murders of her father, brother, and husband, and numerous attempts on her life, she rose to become the first Afghani woman Parliament speaker. Here, she shares her amazing story, punctuated by a series of poignant letters she wrote to her two daughters before each political trip—letters describing the future and freedoms she dreamed of for them and for all the women of Afghanistan. Koofi's New York Times bestseller, The Favored Daughter, movingly captures the political and cultural moment in Afghanistan, a country caught between the hope of progress and the bitter truth of history.
