"Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" by Richard P Feynman( Sound Recording )
20 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 505 libraries worldwide
In this book Feynman recounts in his inimitable voice his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek, painting a naked female toreador, accompanying a ballet on his bongo drums and much else of an eyebrow-raising and hilarious nature.--
The pirate coast Thomas Jefferson, the first marines, and the secret mission of 1805 by Richard Zacks( Sound Recording )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 388 libraries worldwide
After Tripoli declared war on the United States in 1801, Barbary pirates captured three hundred U.S. sailors and marines. President Jefferson sent out navy squadrons, but he also authorized a secret mission to overthrow the government of Tripoli. He chose an unlikely diplomat, William Eaton, to lead the mission. But before Eaton departed, Jefferson grew wary of the affair and withdrew his support. Astoundingly, Eaton persevered, gathering a ragtag army and leading them on a brutal march across five hundred miles of desert. After surviving sandstorms, treachery, and near death, Eaton achieved a remarkable victory on "the shores of Tripoli," gaining freedom for the American hostages and new respect for the young United States. But as Eaton dared to reveal that the president had deserted him, Jefferson set out to crush him

"What do you care what other people think?" by Richard P Feynman( file )
13 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 282 libraries worldwide
When Richard Feynman, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics, died in February 1988 after a courageous battle with cancer, the New York Times called him "the most brilliant, iconoclastic, and influential of the postwar generation of theoretical physicists." Here, in these "further adventures," a companion volume to "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!," is another healthy dose of Feynman's irreverent zest for life and an even deeper, wiser level of reminiscence
The deerslayer by James Fenimore Cooper( file )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 268 libraries worldwide
The Deerslayer is the first of the Leatherstocking Tales of James Fenimore Cooper. Here we meet Natty Bumppo as a young man living in upstate New York in the early 1740s.

Hutter's floating log fort is attacked by Iroquois Indians, and the two frontiersmen join in the fight
Why gender matters : what parents and teachers need to know about the emerging science of sex differences by Leonard Sax( file )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 247 libraries worldwide
Are boys and girls really that different? Twenty years ago, doctors and researchers didn't think so. However, an avalanche of research has shown that sex differences are more significant than anybody guessed. Gender differences are real, biologically programmed, and important to how children are raised, disciplined, and educated. Dr. Leonard Sax addresses a host of issues, including discipline, learning, risk taking, aggression, sex, and drugs and shows how boys and girls react in predictable ways to different situations. A leading proponent of single-sex education, Dr. Sax points out that parents and teachers would do better to recognize, understand, and make use of the biological differences that make a girl a girl and a boy a boy
Afghanistan : a military history from Alexander the Great to the fall of the Taliban by Stephen Tanner( file )
13 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 247 libraries worldwide
For over 2,500 years, the forbidding territory of Afghanistan has served as a vital crossroads not only for armies but also for clashes between civilizations. An understanding of the military history of that blood-soaked land is essential now as America faces a new enemy on this land, a land that for centuries has become a graveyard of empires past
The meaning of it all : thoughts of a citizen scientist by Richard P Feynman( file )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 241 libraries worldwide
In this collection of lectures given by Feynman in 1963, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist discusses several of the mega-questions of science: What is the nature of the tension between science and religious faith? Why does uncertainty play such a crucial role in the scientific imagination? Is this really the scientific age? Marked by Feynman's characteristic combination of rationality and humor, these lectures provide an intimate glimpse at the man behind the legend
The art of being by Erich Fromm( file )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 232 libraries worldwide
The Art of Being teaches us to avoid the tantalizing illusions of our consumer-driven world by learning to function as a whole person from a state of inner completeness or being. The transition from an identity of having to being creates a state of enlightened psychological and spiritual happiness. Fromm observes that the modern person is less a self-reflective being than a composite of data promoted by the mass media, and he encourages us to pursue true self-awareness beyond simple political, ideological, and religious clichés. By learning to be centered in the self, the individual is less swayed by the endless pressures and dissatisfactions of the culture

In time of war : [Hitler's terrorist attack on America] by Pierce O'Donnell( file )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
In 1942, eight Nazi saboteurs were caught on American beaches and executed. The decision was challenged in court but eventually upheld in the Supreme Court's ruling in Ex parte Quirin?a case that has frequently been cited by the George W. Bush administration in support of its declared power to hold "enemy combatants" and try them by military commission. But O'Donnell, a former Supreme Court law clerk, argues that we should be cautious in applying it as precedence, because the process by which it was decided by the Supreme Court was illegitimate
The first heroes : the extraordinary story of the Doolittle Raid - America's first World War II victory by Craig Nelson( file )
13 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and held by 186 libraries worldwide
Immediately after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt sought to restore the honor of the United States with a dramatic act of vengeance: a retaliatory bombing raid on Tokyo. On April 18, 1942, eighty brave young men, led by the famous daredevil Jimmy Doolittle, took off from a navy carrier in the mid-Pacific on what everyone regarded as a suicide mission but instead became a resounding American victory and helped turn the tide of the war. The First Heroes is the story of that mission. Meticulously researched and based on interviews with twenty of the surviving Tokyo Raiders, this is a true account that almost defies belief, a tremendous human drama of great personal courage, and a powerful reminder that ordinary people, when faced with extraordinary circumstances, can rise to the challenge of history

6 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 158 libraries worldwide
"Led by incredible faith, David Wilkerson took a seemingly bizarre step from his country pulpit in 1958 to the streets of New York City, where a murder trial of seven teenage boys intensified society's antipathy toward them. Even Wilkerson was bewildered by his sense of compassion but, in spite of doubt, he followed the Spirit's prompting to help the boys"--Publisher's web site
