Hybrid woodworking is incredibly gratifying if for only the fact that there are no wasted motions. We let the power tools do the grunt work, while taking our time to finesse the work with our hand tools. It truly is the best of both worlds and it is a method that is incredibly appealing to the modern woodworker.
This extraordinary first-hand account of Sir Edward 'Weary' Dunlop's experiences as senior medical officer in the infamous prisoner-of-war camps in Java and on the Burma-Thailand Railway, is not only an account of great historical significance but also a testament to the ability of the human spirit to overcome the most unbearably cruel conditions.

"This is teaching at its best!" --Hans Camenzind, inventor of the 555 timer (the world's most successful integrated circuit), and author of Much Ado About Almost Nothing: Man's Encounter with the Electron (Booklocker.com) "A fabulous book: well written, well paced, fun, and informative. I also love the sense of humor. It's very good at disarming the fear. And it's gorgeous. I'll be recommending this book highly." --Tom Igoe, author of Physical Computing and Making Things Talk A "magnificent and rewarding book. ... Every step of this structured instruction is expertly illustrated with photos and crisp diagrams. . . . This really is the best way to learn." --Kevin Kelly, in Cool Tools The first edition of Make: Electronics established a new benchmark for introductory texts. This second edition enhances that learning experience. Here you will find unique, photographically precise diagrams of breadboarded components, to help you build circuits with speed and precision. A new shopping guide and a simplified range of components, will minimize your investment in parts for the projects. A completely new section on the Arduino shows you how to write properly structured programs instead of just downloading other people's code. Projects have been reworked to provide additional features, and the book has been restructured to offer a step-by-step learning process that is as clear and visually pleasing on handheld devices as it is on paper. Full color is used throughout. As before, Make: Electronics begins with the basics. You'll see for yourself how components work--and what happens when they don't. You'll short out a battery and overheat an LED. You'll also open up a potentiometer and a relay to see what's inside. No other book gives you such an opportunity to learn from real-life experiences. Ultimately, you will build gadgets that have lasting value, and you'll have a complete understanding of how they work. From capacitors to transistors to microcontrollers--it's all here. Hans Camenzind, inventor of the 555 Timer (the world's most successful integrated circuit chip), said that "This is teaching at its best!" when he reviewed the first edition. Now the second edition offers even more!
Cook's Night Out
Author: Joanne Pence
Publisher: Harper Collins
Foodie Angie Amalfi has decided to make her culinary name by creating the perfect chocolate confection: angelinas. Donating her delicious rejects to the Random Acts of Kindness Mission in San Francisco, Angie meets the jittery minister in charge. Soon she volunteers to help organize their first fund-raiser, despite the fact that her beau, police detective Paavo Smith, has warned her away from the place. Before Paavo can stop her, he finds himself facing charges that he's a murderous cop on the take. He suspects a "reformed" sinner at the mission is setting him up but Angie refuses to believe it. Then, faster than you can beat egg whites to a peak, she discovers that the mission harbors more than the needy, and that it's up to her to save not only Paavo's reputation--but his life, too.

An hilarious yet touching autobiography from Towie's brightest star Gemma Collins. Blonde, bubbly and ballsy, Gemma Collins stands out from the cast of hit TV series The Only Way is Essex in more ways than one. Her larger-than-life personality has had the nation crying with laughter as she has haphazardly navigated through one romantic crisis to another on screen. She tries hard when it comes to finding 'The One' -- baking love pies and sexy texting -- yet it never seems to work out. But does she care? Of course she doesn't. Gemma always has the upper hand, leaving men quaking in their boots and women looking on in admiration. Fiercely independent and comfortable in her own skin, Gemma has an army of female and male fans alike. But, finding her confidence has been a long and heartbreaking journey for Gemma. And now in her very own autobiography she opens up about the life events she has endured before finding fame and learning to love herself. From being dumped after miscarrying a child to an ongoing battle with her weight and depression, life in Essex hasn't always been real. Indiscretion isn't her middle name, however, so expect to find out the secrets on all of her famous conquests, including Arg, Mick and Rickey, and what she really thinks of her perma-tanned co-stars. This is the touching yet riotously funny story of how a young Essex girl with a big heart finally found what she'd always been looking for. Herself.
