"Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" by Richard P Feynman( Recording )

26 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member 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( Recording )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member 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( )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. "What do you care what other people think?" is Feynman's last literary legacy, prepared with his friend and fellow drummer, Ralph Leighton. Among the book's many tales, we meet Feynman's first wife, Arlene, who taught him love's irreducible mystery as she lay dying in a hospital bed, while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. We are also given a fascinating chronicle of the investigation of the space shuttle Challenger's explosion in 1986, and we relive the moment when Feynman revealed the disaster's cause by an elegant experiment: dropping a ring of rubber into a glass of cold water and pulling it out, misshapen

Why gender matters : what parents and teachers need to know about the emerging science of sex differences by Leonard Sax( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member 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

The art of being by Erich Fromm( )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member 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( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member 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
