WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT FIRST AND ONLY I wasn't sure what to expect from the cover or the blurb but I couldn't put it down until I finished it --- LB A truly fantastic book, you simply won't want, nor be able to put it down until you have the answers --- Linda I found myself leaning further towards my laptop screen the further into the book I got --- Janieritson I didn't want to put it down, but at the same time, I really didn't want it to end --- Manchester Anne DESCRIPTION Do you believe in psychics? What if there really was someone who could see into the future, read people's thoughts and move things with their mind? What kind of person would they be and how would they reveal themselves to the world? Psimon is just such a man, a real and genuine psychic. But Psimon has a problem. In five days time he is going to die at the hands of a serial killer known only as Lucifer. His only hope is to enlist the services of former SAS soldier, Steve Brennus, a man whose family life and business have just collapsed in ruins. Psimon knows he is going to die. He has seen it. But could a former SAS soldier have the strength to overcome the visions of the world's first psychic? With a small cast of engaging characters, blistering pace and a beautifully drawn villain, FIRST AND ONLY is a great thriller and an impressive debut novel. From the intensity of the first scene to the dramatic and satisfying climax the story pauses just enough for readers to catch their breath. Do not take this book to bed if you fancy an early night. You have been warned.

Code Talker

The First and Only Memoir By One of the Original Navajo Code Talkers of WWII

The first and only memoir by one of the original Navajo code talkers of WWII. His name wasn’t Chester Nez. That was the English name he was assigned in kindergarten. And in boarding school at Fort Defiance, he was punished for speaking his native language, as the teachers sought to rid him of his culture and traditions. But discrimination didn’t stop Chester from answering the call to defend his country after Pearl Harbor, for the Navajo have always been warriors, and his upbringing on a New Mexico reservation gave him the strength—both physical and mental—to excel as a marine. During World War II, the Japanese had managed to crack every code the United States used. But when the Marines turned to its Navajo recruits to develop and implement a secret military language, they created the only unbroken code in modern warfare—and helped assure victory for the United States over Japan in the South Pacific.

Pitching in the Promised Land

A Story of the First and Only Season in the Israel Baseball League

It was the first (and last) season of professional baseball in Israel. Aaron Pribble, twenty-seven, had been out of Minor League Baseball for three years while he pursued a career in education when, at his coach's suggestion, he tried out for the newly formed Israel Baseball League (IBL). Of Jewish descent (not a requirement, but definitely a plus) and former pro, Pribble was the ideal candidate for the upstart league. In many ways the league resembled the ultimate baseball fantasy camp with its unforgettable cast of characters: the DJ/street artist third baseman from the Bronx, the wildman catcher from Australia, the journeymen Dominicans who were much older than they claimed to be, and, of course, seventy-one-year-old Sandy Koufax, drafted in a symbolic gesture as the last player. After falling in love with a beautiful Yemenite Jew, enduring an alleged terrorist attack on opening day, witnessing a career-ending brain injury caused by improper field equipment, participating in a strike, and venturing into the West Bank despite being strongly advised against it, Pribble must decide whether to forgo a teaching career in order to become the first player from the IBL to sign a pro contract in the United States. His is a story of coming of age spiritually and athletically in one short season in the throes of romance, Middle Eastern politics, and the dreams of America's pastime far, far afield from home.

Centuries ago the fledgling United States of America broke away from England because they did not want to be ruled by a king. Centuries later with the advent of prohibition they got one anyway: his name was Al Capone. Al became a king because he was able to succeed where other gangsters could not. By thinking and acting outside the box, he owed this to his father. Whereas other gangsters were motherland exclusive; Germans with Germans, Irish with Irish, and Italians with Italians. The lessons that Al learned was that every man, men of all walks of life needed and wanted haircuts. That greed was pretty much Universal, Universal indeed. The kind of money Al was generating at his enterprises per brewery would be very respectable, more than respectable these days. Growing up in a poor neighborhood you would see no doctors, no lawyers, no business executives but you did see gangsters being the role models of the young people

Simply, and with great humanity, The Eradication of Smallpox tells the story of smallpox - it's origins, the horror of the disease, and the millions of people killed or disfigured by it. During the 18th and 19th centuries, it is estimated that one out of every ten people died from the disease; some say one out of every seven. Smallpox attacked very young children in particular. The story progresses with the practice of variolation, the life of Edward Jenner who first proposed 'vaccination' with cow pox vaccine (little James Phipps was the first person ever vaccinated in this way), the years of debate about the efficacy of this novel method, and the later worldwide initiatives to rid the planet of this horrific disease. In 1979, the story culminates in the only total eradication of an infectious disease that mankind has ever accomplished. This year celebrates the 20th anniversary of this momentous achievement. In the intervening years, debate has raged about what we should do with the remaining smallpox viral stocks. Do we destroy them, so they can't fall into the hands of bioterrorists, or do we maintain them, in case they may be of use in some unexpected way, for therapeutic purposes? These questions are thoroughly discussed in the book. Key Features * Covers the background, history and origin of smallpox, and brings the story up to the present day * Gives full and interesting details of Jenner's life, and tells how this humble country doctor brought about a revolution in vaccination * Includes many quotes from historical figures * Features 120 high quality photographs, many originating from unique historical plates in the author's private collection * Includes new research data * Provides new views on the eradication and destruction of smallpox

In the early nineteenth-century, James Winston—actor, theater manager, author, obsessive collector of theater ephemera, and artist—traveled throughout Britain making sketches of nearly 300 theatres and recording their most intricate details. Published in a deluxe edition two centuries ago, The Theatric Tourist has before now never been reprinted—though most copies have either disappeared or have been broken for the remarkable hand-colored plates found within. This remarkable piece of social and theatrical history is presented by the British Library and the Society for Theatre Research in a superb facsimile edition, which includes both Winston’s original text and his 24 stunning illustrations—presenting many of the long-since vanished playhouses of late Georgian England. A collector’s item for any cultural historian or theater buff, The Theatric Tourist is an invaluable piece of social history and a unique record of the buildings, players, and atmosphere of a time gone by.
