"Finding stone, choosing it, and letting go of it are the three things a waller does. I'd miss any one of them too much if I asked someone else to do them for me. I may work by myself, but I'm not alone. I'm in the company of stone." Daniel Snow is a waller, an artisan who builds walls, terraces, caverns, and the occasional sphere or pool out of dry stone. It's an ancient skill--building with only what the earth provides. No mortar, no nails, nothing to hold his creations together except gravity, an invisible glue he can sense in the stones' "conversations" of squeaks and rumbles. A hollow sound means a void needs to be filled; a solid fit is secured with the sound of a bolt being thrown. Snow's evocative prose and Peter Mauss's richly textured photographs of Snow's work reveal the nuance and beauty of walling--and of one man's relationship with nature. The result is by turns poetic and practical.

Many companies and organisations have embarked upon change programmes as part of a quest for a common vision, identity and set of values. These programmes are frequently frustrated by company politics based upon less obvioius power structures within the company or organisation. This book examines the nature of this conflict and proposes a methodology to demonstrate how long term change can be successfully implemented.

For more than one hundred years, Stone Harbor was the preferred summer destination for residents of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. One of the earliest resort towns, Stone Harbor was the dream of three brothers who, in the late 1800s, planned it in great detail. Its wide beach and sparkling ocean beckon to sunbathers, sailors, and deep-sea fishermen. Among the many people irresistibly drawn to this place of salt marsh, sand dune, and bay was Paul Preston Davis, whose remarkable collection of postcards and ephemera is featured in Stone Harbor.

There’s trouble on CMC-6 and it’s been brewing for a long time. The golden age of space travel and asteroid mining has ended and the bean counters have taken over. Sally Buds’ patients are all suffering from low-gravity syndrome because the Canadian Mining Consortium won’t spring for gravity generators and the miners won’t exercise. On top of this the station might be facing hard times. An expensive mining robot disappeared while surveying a region of space known and Kelthy. But then, after a replacement is over, it reappears. How could the station personnel have been so incompetent? But Sally has another question. Where did the probe go when it was out of contact? Where did the strange rock samples come from and why did the images it saw not correspond with known star charts? Her new friend Ian Merryfield, an RAF shuttle pilot, wants to know, too. But the station commander does not. What is in the Kelthy region and why do things disappear there? Is it a hoax intended to scare away claim jumpers or is it the greatest discovery of the twenty-first century? Ian and Sally intend to find out even if it means risking their careers or even their lives. Not knowing would be worse.

Glen Cook's She is the Darkness is the second book in the fast-paced Glittering Stone military fantasy series. The wind whines and howls with bitter breath. Lightning snarls and barks. Rage is an animate force upon the plain of glittering stone. Even shadows are afraid. At the heart of the plain stands a vast grey stronghold, unknown, older than any written memory. One ancient tower has collapsed across the fissure. From the heart of the fastness comes a great deep slow breath like that of a slumbering world-heart, cracking the olden silence. Death is eternity. Eternity is stone. Stone is silence. Stone cannot speak but stone remembers. So begins the next movement of Glittering Stone.... The tale again comes to us from the pen of Murgen, Annalist and Standard Bearer of the Black Company, whose developing powers of travel through space and time give him a perspective like no other. Led by the wily commander, Croaker, and the Lady, the Company is working for the Taglian government, but neither the Company nor the Taglians are overflowing with trust for each other. Arrayed against both is a similarly tenuous alliance of sorcerers, including the diabolical Soulcatcher, the psychotic Howler, and a four-year-old child who may be the most powerful of all. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Hard hitting and focused in its attack, this warning shot of a book stands out with its message that those companies that refuse to change their basic, long-held operating strategies will not survive in the rapidly changing world of work. The business hierarchy that seeks to monitor and control workers' methods and output is outmoded, the text claims, and must be changed even at the risk of hurting those who have always benefited from hierarchical arrangements: the executives and managers. The book further argues that current managing techniques stifle the ability of people and organizations to grow. There is a solution, however, and the chapters offer ways to keep talented employees, serve shareholders, and base business practices in growth rather than efficiency and control. A detailed case study puts a real-life spin on the theories and choices explained within the pages, strongly making the case that only companies willing to re-envision themselves now will have a place in tomorrow's business landscape.

There are many reasons why people play the game of golf. Some wish to play great while others hope only to become competent enough to not embarrass themselves. Yet regardless of their ability or intentions and time available most golfers seem to have the desire to experience that great golf shot or play a terrific round. Learning Golf's Essential Elements helps the golfer understand the process that it takes to learn to develop and increase physical ability, knowledge of the golf swing and game. It may be used by an individual, a group or as a class textbook. This book provides a systematic way of learning and understanding the game beginning with the golf swing. Physical limitations, time constraints and unrealistic expectations are just a few of the reasons discussed for golfers having difficulty realizing their goals. Drills and exercises are outlined and practice routines are developed. Throughout the book are stories of the author's experiences as he has learned and taught the game over the years. Many of the stories are humorous but all have a purpose in helping the reader understand the struggles of learning the game. Learning the golf swing, an essential element, is a major portion of the book. While the golf swing is important the game doesn't stop there. Putting, the short game, etiquette, rules and vocabulary are all included. Drills and routines are described for both putting and the short game. Etiquette may be the most important yet neglected component. No game can be played without rules and explanations of the most common rules are given. Necessary vocabulary is integrated throughout the book and is also a chapter itself. Whatever the motive for playing the game the reader will benefit and enjoy Learning Golf's Essential Elements.

Africa’s diamond wars took four million lives. ‘Blood on the Stone’ tells the story of how diamonds came to be so dangerous, describing the great diamond cartel and a dangerous pipeline leading from war-torn Africa to the glittering showrooms of Paris, London and New York. It describes the campaign that forced an industry and more than 50 governments to create a global control mechanism, and it provides a sobering prognosis on its future.
