Through his fifteen-year career as an NBA player, Clyde Drexler played with elegance and flair, leadership and poise, integrity and an ability to come through in the clutch. He led the Portland Trail Blazers to the NBA Finals twice and helped the Houston Rockets win the NBA championship in 1995. A ten-time All-Star, a member of the 1992 Olympic Dream Team, and now a member of basketball’s Hall of Fame, Drexler reached the top of his profession without revealing many of his inner thoughts on himself or the game. Now, Clyde the Glide is finally ready to talk to his fans. From growing up in a single-parent household to life as a local teen legend, and eventually getting teamed with Hakeem Olajuwon to guide the University of Houston into the NCAA Final Four twice in the early 1980s, Clyde the Glide tells it all. Famous NBA figures such as Maurice Lucas and Patrick Ewing even add their two cents. Without a doubt, Clyde the Glide is a must-read for every ?die-hard basketball fan.

" Winner of the Best Aeronautical Book Award from the Reserve Officers Association of the United States "The sky was full of dying airplanes" as American Liberator bombers struggled to return to North Africa after their daring low-level raid on the oil refineries of Ploesti. They lost 446 airmen and 53 planes, but Philip Ardery's plane came home. This pilot was to take part in many more raids on Hitler's Europe, including air cover for the D-Day invasion of Normandy. This vivid firsthand account, available now for the first time in paper, records one man's experience of World War II air warfare. Throughout, Ardery testifies to the horror of world war as he describes his fear, his longing for home, and his grief for fallen comrades. Bomber Pilot is a moving contribution to American history.

When Jenny Lexhed and her husband have their first child, Lucas, they are living the dream. They’re happily married, they’ve just bought a house, the company they built together from the ground up is starting to blossom. But with the arrival of their son, a feeling of anxiety slips into their life. What starts as a feeling becomes a conviction. Lucas is not like other children. Everything seems to indicate, and psychiatric evaluation concludes, that their son is severely autistic. Will he ever be able to communicate? Jenny vows to do whatever she can to help Lucas connect with his parents and others and live an independent life. Tossed between hope and despair, she begins a frantic effort to research the best among many competing therapies and find exactly the right treatment for her son. Her obsession takes her to the brink of exhaustion—and over, when she suffers a psychotic breakdown and must be committed to a psychiatric clinic. There begins another journey, to find her balance and recover her strong, healthy life, before she can begin again to fight for her son. Both brutally honest and deeply affecting, Love Is Not Enough is a page-turning memoir that offers insight into autism and what a parent goes through for her child.

A gripping novel of human ingenuity during World War II, based on the visionary author’s own wartime experiences as a radar control operator. One of the most influential science fiction writers of the twentieth century, Arthur C. Clarke has consistently anticipated the actual achievements of science and technology. In Glide Path, he turns back the clock to tell a thrilling story about the groundbreaking exploration of radar during WWII. Clarke’s only non–science fiction novel shines with the same qualities that made his award-winning space adventures timeless classics: topnotch suspense, fascinating science, and memorable characters. A hidden gem in Clarke’s impressive body of work, Glide Path is an enthralling read for both science fiction fans and history aficionados.

This text presents an easy-to-understand guide to the development, design and surgical application of the keystone island flap. Extensive use is made of clinical cases accompanied by intraoperative videos and detailed photography showing the operative sequence and post-operative results (with any complications detailed), in order to maximise the reader's understanding. Additional information, such as the history, neurovascular anatomy based on dermatomal delineations, the reconstructive alternatives and technical refinements, is presented in boxed sections. The book discusses in detail the design elements including flap physiology upon which the keystone island flap is based. Following a general discussion of the flap and the basis of how it works, including hypothesis (the subject of separate investigation), the authors examine specific defects in various regions of the body and show how keystone island flaps have been used successfully in a wide range of applications. The use of the keystone island flap for specific surgical specialities, including head and neck , melanoma, trauma (including compound fractures of the lower limb) and even irradiated tissue is also addressed. This surgical method can be a valuable supplement to the reconstructive repertoire in the field of reparative surgery.
