Product Description
In The ESPN Mighty Book of Sports Knowledge, Steve Wulf, acclaimed author and founding editor of
ESPN The Magazine, delivers an arena’s worth of sporting wisdom, trivia, best-of lists, curiosities,
legendary feats, and sacred objects–from the magic of Lou Gehrig’s farewell speech to the lore of
hockey’s Stanley Cup to the art of the perfectly thrown Wiffle Ball pitch. Written to remind us all why
we love the games, this indispensable reference features contributions from the finest minds at ESPN,
as well as guidance from actual professionals. Inside you’ll discover

• twenty-five of the greatest sporting nicknames
• the keys to being a mascot
• what happens during a pit stop
• the five best (worst?) on-field temper tantrums
• a tour of Donovan McNabb’s locker
• how Wayne Gretzky tapes his sticks
• the unbeatable secret of rock-paper-scissors
• how to tape an ankle, fold a paper football, hit a hole in one, whistle with your fingers, throw a
knuckleball, jump rope like a champ, and oil a baseball glove
• advice from star athletes–learn to run routes like Jerry Rice, take a penalty kick like Landon Donovan,
fake opponents out like Chris Paul, and put on your socks the John Wooden way

The ESPN Mighty Book of Sports Knowledge is the perfect antidote to our video-game culture and an
essential gift for any fan who ever dreamed of throwing a tight spiral in a Super Bowl, closing out a
World Series game, or lining up a putt to win a major. In other words, it’s a book for the young and the
young at heart.

Encyclopedia of Perception
E. Bruce Goldstein (Editor)



Editorial Reviews
Product Description

The field of perception is devoted to explaining the operation of the senses and the experiences and
behaviors resulting from stimulation of the senses. Perceptual processes such as recognizing faces,
seeing color, hearing music, and feeling pain represent the actions of complex mechanisms, yet we
usually do them easily. The Encyclopedia of Perception presents a comprehensive overview of the
field of perception through authoritative essays written by leading researchers and theoreticians in
psychology, the cognitive sciences, neuroscience, and medical disciplines. It presents two parallel and
interacting approaches: the psychophysical, or determining the relationship between stimuli in the
environment and perception, and the physiological, or locating the biological systems responsible for
perception. Are there any processes not associated with perception? Surely there are, but the
pervasiveness of perception is truly impressive, and the phenomena of perception and its mechanisms
are what this encyclopedia is about.

Encyclopedia of Human Relationships (Three Volume Set)

Editorial Reviews
Product Description

Library Journal Best Reference 2009

"An excellent gateway to further examination of any of the subdisciplines of relationship science, or
as a research tool in its own right."
-Library Journal

Relationships are fundamental to nearly all domains of human activity, from birth to death. When
people participate in healthy, satisfying relationships, they live, work, and learn more effectively.
When relationships are distressed or dysfunctional, people are less happy, less healthy, and less
productive. Few aspects of human experience have as broad or as deep effects on our lives.

The Encyclopedia of Human Relationships offers an interdisciplinary view of all types of human
associations-friends, lovers, spouses, roommates, coworkers, teammates, parents and children,
cousins, siblings, acquaintances, neighbors, business associates, and so forth. Although each of these
connections is unique in some respect, they share a common core of principles and processes. These
three volumes provide a state-of-the-art review of the extensive theories, concepts, and empirical
findings about human relationships.
Key Features

        Compiles leading-edge information about how people think, feel, and act toward each other
        Presents the best in the field-authors who have contributed significant scientific knowledge
           about personal relationships over the past several decades.
        Offers a diverse approach to relationship science with contributions from psychology,
           sociology, communication, family studies, anthropology, physiology, neuroscience, history,
           economics, and legal studies

Key Themes:

        Cognitive Processes in Relationships
        Communication Processes
        Creating and Maintaining Closeness
        Dating, Courtship, and Marriage
        The Dark Side of Relationships
        Emotion Processes in Relationships
        Family
        Friendship and Caregiving in Adulthood
        Health and the Biology of Relationships
        Methods for Studying Relationships
        Personality and Individual Differences
        Prevention and Repair of Relationship Problems
        Psychological Processes
        Sexuality
        Social Context of Relationships
        Social Relations in Childhood and Adolescence
        Theoretical Approaches to Studying Relationships
        Types of Relationships

Our relationships influence virtually all aspects of our everyday existence and are of deep interest to
students, researchers, academics, and laypeople alike. This Encyclopedia is an invaluable addition to
any academic or public library.

The World's Worst Cars : From Pioneering Failures to Multimillion Dollar
Distasters
Craig Cheetham (Author)


Editorial Reviews
Product Description
There's mountains of books out there for great cars. There's whole libraries devoted to them but what
happens to those stinkers that fail miserable, have poor performance, or are just dang ugly. Craig
Cheetham has put forth this book listing roughly 150 of what he deems are some of the worst cars in
the world. It's easy to go through and makes for an entertaining coffee table book. Each entry gives the
basic stats during production and then paraphrases why it is included in this tome. There's a wide
spread of vehicles from numerous countries. Craig is very careful to point out, these are only HIS
opinions based on ownership, research, and personal views. There are plenty of photos, every entry has
at least 2-5 images of the car itself. I'd like to have maybe had one less of the car per page and include
a shot of the dashboard features. Unfortunately, many of the problems that make these the worst
becomes redundant - rust rot, poor handling, bad performance at speed, and looks.
The book is broken into 5 categories. 1) Badly Built - self explanatory. 2) Design Disasters in which the
manufacturers just weren't thinking much on the layouts. 3) Financial Failures in which the car just
didn't sell, cost more to make it than it was worth, suffered from lawsuits, or drove a company to
bankruptcy. 4) Misplaced Marques in which on company tries to slap a logo and minor change to
another manufactures creation. 5) Motoring Misfits which entails oddball vehicles that just don't work
properly or became jokes.
Some of these cars went from being famous to infamous due to restructuring or financial problems.
There's a huge variety of vehicles including the expected AMC Gremlin and Pacer, the Ford Pinto,
Tucker's Torpedo, the Edsel, Pontiac Aztek (horrifically ugly and impractical car), DeLorean, Jeep
ripoff India made Mahindra Indian Chief, Reliant Robin (3wheel car), Amphicar, Nash Metropolitan, and
even into the Lotus and Lambourghini Espada ranks. Just when you think your prefered brand is safe,
one will pop up in this list.
The books inexpensive and was entertaining to go through. Sadly, I can say I have owned four of the
cars in this book: Mustang II, Ford Explorer, Subaru SVX, and Subaru XT coupe. Enjoy and find your car.

Stockley's Drug Interactions, 8th Edition [Hardcover]
Karen Baxter (Editor)




Editorial Reviews
Product Description
First published over twenty years ago, "Stockley's Drug Interactions" is still the most indispensable and
authoritative international source of drug interaction information. Based upon the many thousands of
published clinical papers and reports, it provides a series of detailed yet concise monographs designed
for quick and easy reference. Each monograph contains a summary, clinical evidence for the
interaction under discussion, its probable mechanism, clinical importance and management. Individual
interactions are assembled alphabetically into chapters, grouped therapeutically, pharmacologically or
individually. Both Recommended International Nonproprietary Names (rINN) and US Adopted Names
(USAN) are used throughout the book.
