The New York Times bestselling author of the Supervolcano trilogy envisions the election of a United States President whose political power will redefine what the nation is-and what it means to be American… The Great Depression continues to cast its dark shadow over the country. Desperate times call for desperate measures, so the Democratic Party makes an interesting nomination for their Presidential candidate: California Congressman Joe Steele, the son of a Russian immigrant laborer who identifies more with the common man than with the wealthy power brokers in Washington D.C. Achieving a landslide victory, President Joe Steele wastes no time pushing through Congress reforms that put citizens back to work. Anyone who gets in his way is getting in the way of America, and that includes the highest in the land. But Steele's homeland political enemies pale in comparison to European tyrants whose posturing seems sure to drag America into war…

Dimensions of Faith
113,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In Dimensions of Faith, cognitive scientist Steve Donaldson takes readers on a journey from the world of assumptions, set minds, widely varying beliefs, and popular misconceptions to an understanding of the true essence and role of faith as the natural and inevitable product of brains. Using numerous illustrations and examples, Donaldson shows how faith is necessitated by a variety of unavoidable limitations, exposes the myth of a divide between faith and critical thinking, provides practical advice for crafting coherent beliefs, and explains why there can never be such a place as ''Factland.'' Along the way he takes a special look at religious faith--evaluating its attributes, exploring its relation to other manifestations of faith, investigating whether God has done his job well enough to warrant the faith placed in him, and pondering how truth seekers can sometimes end up in very different places. ''There are as many definitions of 'faith' as there are people using the word. Whichever meaning you use, Dimensions of Faith will challenge and then deepen your faith as Donaldson lucidly demonstrates the congruence of faith and logical thought. This is the work of a thoughtful scholar who is both a Christian and a scientist.'' --Wilton Bunch, Professor of Philosophy, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama ''In Dimensions of Faith, Donaldson offers a very readable argument that whether a person is religious or not, all of us are imbued with faith as a fundamental component of what it means to be human. Many authors have delved into faith from either a religious or scientific perspective; few have succeeded in integrating faith and reason in such a seamless fashion. Dimensions of Faith is a must-read for anyone interested in the interface of science and religion.'' --Thomas W. Woolley, PhD, Professor of Statistics, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama ''Dimensions of Faith is a brilliant, engaging, and accessible meditation on its subject. [It] is a robust defense of human freedom and an encouragement against fear of openness to experience. You may not like all the answers offered here, but your assumptions about faith will not remain untouched (if you're open to examining them). This is a book to think with and meditate upon.'' --Brian Steele, Associate Professor of History, The University of Alabama at Birmingham ''Deconstruction is rather easier and more common than construction. In Dimensions of Faith, Dr. Donaldson takes the harder path and delivers a constructive work providing a hopeful voice to those of faith (all of us) by challenging current paradigms and imploring exploration into further understanding, reminding us that to arrive is to fall short.'' --Todd Harrington, Lead Pastor, Haven Field Community Church, South Vestavia Hills, Alabama ''Dimensions of Faith tackles complex questions about faith from the viewpoint of a scientist who is also a Christian. But first, the author neatly unpacks assumptions, mindsets, and misconceptions about faith, and defines faith in a careful and logical way. He then establishes and explores the inextricable link between faith and reason, and analyzes, in depth, the nature of religious faith. This excellent book is a must-read for anyone who has seriously pondered faith and its role in our lives.'' --Sharon Stuart, Lawyer Steve Donaldson, PhD, is Professor and Computer Science Program Director at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. He also codirects the Computational Biology program, teaches in the Science and Religion and University Fellows Honors programs, and is one of the cofounders of the Samford Center for Science and Religion. His research interests include cognition, models of intelligence, autonomous systems, self-organization and emergence, and the interface

SQL Queries for Mere Mortals
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Unless you are working at a very advanced level, this is the only SQL book you will ever need. The authors have taken the mystery out of complex queries and explained principles and techniques with such clarity that a 'Mere Mortal' will indeed be empowered to perform the superhuman. Do not walk past this book! --Graham Mandeno, Database Consultant SQL Queries for Mere Mortals provides a step-by-step, easy-to-read introduction to writing SQL queries. It includes hundreds of examples with detailed explanations. This book provides the tools you need to understand, modify, and create SQL queries --Keith W. Hare, Convenor, ISO/IEC JTC1 SC32 WG3--the International SQL Standards Committee I learned SQL primarily from the first edition of this book, and I am pleased to see a second edition of this book so that others can continue to benefit from its organized presentation of the language. Starting from how to design your tables so that SQL can be effective (a common problem for database beginners), and then continuing through the various aspects of SQL construction and capabilities, the reader can become a moderate expert upon completing the book and its samples. Learning how to convert a question in English into a meaningful SQL statement will greatly facilitate your mastery of the language. Numerous examples from real life will help you visualize how to use SQL to answer the questions about the data in your database. Just one of the 'watch out for this trap' items will save you more than the cost of the book when you avoid that problem when writing your queries. I highly recommend this book if you want to tap the full potential of your database. --Kenneth D. Snell, Ph.D., Database Designer/Programmer I don't think they do this in public schools any more, and it is a shame, but do you remember in the seventh and eighth grades when you learned to diagram a sentence? Those of you who do may no longer remember how you did it, but all of you do write better sentences because of it. John Viescas and Mike Hernandez must have remembered because they take everyday English queries and literally translate them into SQL. This is an important book for all database designers. It takes the complexity of mathematical Set Theory and of First Order Predicate Logic, as outlined in E. F. Codd's original treatise on relational database design, and makes it easy for anyone to understand. If you want an elementary- through intermediate-level course on SQL, this is the one book that is a requirement, no matter how many others you buy. --Arvin Meyer, MCP, MVP Even in this day of wizards and code generators, successful database developers still require a sound knowledge of Structured Query Language (SQL, the standard language for communicating with most database systems). In this book, John and Mike do a marvelous job of making what's usually a dry and difficult subject come alive, presenting the material with humor in a logical manner, with plenty of relevant examples. I would say that this book should feature prominently in the collection on the bookshelf of all serious developers, except that I'm sure it'll get so much use that it won't spend much time on the shelf! -- Doug Steele, Microsoft Access Developer and author Over the last several decades, SQL has evolved from a language known only to computer specialists to a widely used international standard of the computer industry. The number of new applications deployed each year using SQL now totals in the millions. If you are accessing corporate information from the Internet or from an internal network, you are probably using SQL. This new edition of SQL Queries for Mere Mortals helps new users learn the foundations of SQL queries, and is an essential reference guide for intermediate and advanced users. The accompanying CD contains five sample databases used for the example queries throughout the book in four different formats: Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and later, Microsoft Access 2000 and later, MySQL version 5.0 and later, and SQL scripts that can be used with most other implementations of the language.
