The book—companion to a PBS series—that proves humans are causing global warming and offers a path to the future. Since the discovery of fire, humans have been energy users and always will be. And this is a good thing-our mastery of energy is what separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom and has allowed us to be the dominant species on the planet. However, this mastery comes with a price: we are changing our environment in a profoundly negative way by heating it up. Using one engaging story after another, coupled with accessible scientific facts, world authority Richard B. Alley explores the fascinating history of energy use by humans over the centuries, gives a doubt-destroying proof that already-high levels of carbon dioxide are causing damaging global warming, and surveys the alternative energy options that are available to exploit right now. These new energy sources might well be the engines for economic growth in the twenty-first century.

The inspiration for the Netflix original movie War Machine, starring Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, and Ben Kingsley From the author of The Last Magazine, a shocking behind-the-scenes portrait of our military commanders, their high-stake maneuvers, and the politcal firestorm that shook the United States. In the shadow of the hunt for Bin Laden and the United States’ involvement in the Middle East, General Stanley McChrystal, the commanding general of international and U.S. forces in Afghanistan, was living large. His loyal staff liked to call him a “rock star.” During a spring 2010 trip, journalist Michael Hastings looked on as McChrystal and his staff let off steam, partying and openly bashing the Obama administration. When Hastings’s article appeared in Rolling Stone, it set off a political firestorm: McChrystal was unceremoniously fired. In The Operators, Hastings picks up where his Rolling Stone coup ended. From patrol missions in the Afghan hinterlands to senior military advisors’ late-night bull sessions to hotel bars where spies and expensive hookers participate in nation-building, Hastings presents a shocking behind-the-scenes portrait of what he fears is an unwinnable war. Written in prose that is at once eye-opening and other times uncannily conversational, readers of No Easy Day will take to Hastings’ unyielding first-hand account of the Afghan War and its cast of players.

Quicklets: Your Reading Sidekick! ABOUT THE BOOK Michael Hastings' The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America's War In Afghanistan is not just a novel, but a follow up piece a clarification of sorts on a long form article he wrote originally for Rolling Stone. In this article, he speaks freely about his time accompanying Stanley McChrystal in Afghanistan, and McChrystal's company of men. The book itself is released with Hastings' and only Hastings' final approval (no Rolling Stone edits allowed) and therefore presents the full story with all it's elaborations, in an attempt to convey the originally intended message. While it still may not be a letter of recommendation per-se, it shows all sides of the story, and leaves it up to oneself to make the final judgement. The book is split up into four sections. Part one alternates chapters between the time leading up to McChrystal's appointment as leader of the war, and Hastings' time with the group in Paris, Berlin, and Kabul. The next section is almost a calm before the storm, labeled as an interlude in Dubai. The following two sections are in chronological order progressing through time in Afghanistan. There is a narrative feel along with the intimate reporting, making for a compelling read. Overall, the book is an honest, forthright account of a civilian's time with those in uniform, and the futility of fatality in a war that should not have happened. MEET THE AUTHOR William Kryjak is a freelance writer based out of Hartford, CT. His previous work includes some pieces for a counterculture publication as well as some small copywriting jobs. He loves hockey and science fiction. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The Operators has a tight style; it reads like a magazine article. Factual and formal, but still a light tone; similar to when a CEO tells a joke. He is comfortable with his prose, but never lets his words wander. He says what he means and he means what he says. Hastings always mentions the types of restaurants that the generals go to, and often they are kind of Americanized food in other countries, like they are tourists, which goes hand in hand with the sort of out of touch attitude that they have. The war is the only life that they truly understand. Culture is merely a byproduct. Hastings is extremely detailed, even noting when people do or don't laugh at jokes. It's apparent that he has interviewed many people, and as a result has a true understanding of... Buy a copy to keep reading!

On April 20, 1951, L‚on Van Hove presented his thesis ?Sur certaines repr‚sentations unitaires d'un groupe infini de transformations' to the Universit‚ libre de Bruxelles (Free University of Brussels), two days before the University of Grenoble had approved the creation of L'Ecole d'‚t‚ de physique th‚orique at Les Houches (Haute Savoie, France). The first session of the ?Ecole des Houches? began on July 15, 1951, with a month-long course by Van Hove on quantum mechanics. The lecture notes for this course were written for the benefit of physicists who ? like most of their colleagues outside the US, Canada, and England at that time ? did not know quantum mechanics but wanted to learn it seriously. Van Hove's course met their expectations fully. The physics course benefitted from the mathematical expertise of the lecturer, which is also apparent in this thesis. Without his own research as scaffolding, Van Hove could not have built the short and beautiful course which provided the participants with a solid, useful foundation in modern physics.The lecture notes are in French. If they had been in English they would have been published together with the translation of the thesis. The first three pages of the notes are reproduced at the end of this book. The set of notes was reproduced by stencils and distributed to the participants at the beginning of the course.The translation of L‚on Van Hove's thesis was initiated in late 2000, when Bob Hermann, formerly in the Department of Mathematics at MIT, sent to Van Hove's son Michel his view on the thesis: ?I would consider it as one of the most important mathematical physics papers of the past fifty years, containing the key ideas for what has become known as ?geometric quantization.?? Indeed, the thesis is interesting both to historians of science and to theoretical physicists and mathematicians exploring the relationships between quantum and classical physics, based on the Hilbert-space approach to classical mechanics.
