Summary : The award-winning memoir of life in an LA street gang from the acclaimed Chicano author and former Los Angeles Poet Laureate: “Fierce, and fearless” (The New York Times). Luis J. Rodríguez joined his first gang at age eleven. As a teenager, he witnessed the rise of some of the most notorious cliques in Southern California. He grew up knowing only a life of violence—one that revolved around drugs, gang wars, and police brutality. But unlike most of those around him, Rodríguez found a way out when art, writing, and political activism gave him a new path—and an escape from self-destruction. Always Running spares no detail in its vivid, brutally honest portrayal of street life and violence, and it stands as a powerful and unforgettable testimonial of gang life by one of the most acclaimed Chicano writers of his generation. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Luis J. Rodríguez including rare images from the author’s personal collection.

Summary : Learn to live with God instead of for God. In this candid and achingly authentic book, Fil Anderson shares the healing insights that restored his spiritual compass and guided him back to God--the God who specializes in filling empty souls. Fil Anderson had accomplished more for God than most of his contemporaries, but his worn-out body housed an empty soul. His frenetic pace of ministry had earned him just one thing: greater pressure to do even more. He had fallen for the soul-killing lie that doing more for God would give his life meaning. Then the godly admonition of a spiritual director set this burned-out believer on a life-saving spiritual path. Sometimes the only way to get a new life is by running your old one completely into the ground. This powerful story of a reawakened soul can be the story of every person who has pursued spiritual productivity over intimacy with God and come up empty. It’s the story of reclaiming your soul and finding a home in the center of God’s relentless love. It’s the journey from self-importance to God-importance. “To the harried and the unharried, I pray that this book will minister to your heart in the profound way that it has blessed mine.” —Brennan Manning

Summary : Ò. . . reveals the enduring traditions of the Woodland Nations, a cohesive but often overlooked Native cultural group.Ó ÑNative PeoplesÒWhat a priceless treasure this book is!Ó ÑAmerican Indian Libraries NewsletterÒThis portrait of endurance contains vital lessons of survival and of the importance of culture, land and language to identity. To tribes such as the Hopi, Navajo and Havasupai, who now face the threat of loss of culture and language, this volume serves not only as a roadmap to survival, but a testimony to the value of those things held sacred by all peopleÑa common identity, a common language, and a cultural continuity.Ó ÑNavajo Hopi ObserverÒThis is a book that belongs on the shelves of every Indiana library as well as in the homes of anyone who is seriously interested in American history.Ó ÑStar Press, Muncie INÒThe makers of this book, the portrait painter and the interviewers, have done something original, beautiful, and useful.Ó ÑJames Alexander Thom, Bloomington Herald-TimesÒYou can paint me under one condition, that you don't paint me as a 1700 or 1800 Indian. You have to paint me as who I am. This is who I am. I am Phil Alexis, a businessman.Ó ÑPhilip B. Alexis, Potawatomi (Pokagan Band), Executive Director, Confederated Historic Tribes, Inc.ÒWe set out on a journey to make a book that would honor twentieth-century Woodland People. It turns out it is they who honor us with their words, their friendship, their example. For this we say ÔMegwitch,' thank you.Ó ÑRita Kohn, W. Lynwood Montell, from the PrefaceThe Woodland Indian tribes, including Miami, Potawatomi, Delaware, Shawnee, Chippewa, and Kickapoo, have clung tenaciously to their sense of community despite 150 years of government policies aimed at destroying their culture. The 41 narrators in this book, while having their own particular histories, share patterns of experience. All of the people interviewed here have a very deep and abiding commitment to their families and speak of great-great grandparents as intimately as they do of their parents. All see themselves as real people who do not fit the stereotypes often associated with Ònative Americans.Ó And all speak of the urgency for making room for multiple voices drawn from many traditions. Beautifully illustrated with 36 full-color portraits of the narrators.

Summary : “When you begin using multi-threading throughout an application, the importance of clean architecture and design is critical. . . . This places an emphasis on understanding not only the platform’s capabilities but also emerging best practices. Joe does a great job interspersing best practices alongside theory throughout his book.” – From the Foreword by Craig Mundie, Chief Research and Strategy Officer, Microsoft Corporation Author Joe Duffy has risen to the challenge of explaining how to write software that takes full advantage of concurrency and hardware parallelism. In Concurrent Programming on Windows, he explains how to design, implement, and maintain large-scale concurrent programs, primarily using C# and C++ for Windows. Duffy aims to give application, system, and library developers the tools and techniques needed to write efficient, safe code for multicore processors. This is important not only for the kinds of problems where concurrency is inherent and easily exploitable—such as server applications, compute-intensive image manipulation, financial analysis, simulations, and AI algorithms—but also for problems that can be speeded up using parallelism but require more effort—such as math libraries, sort routines, report generation, XML manipulation, and stream processing algorithms. Concurrent Programming on Windows has four major sections: The first introduces concurrency at a high level, followed by a section that focuses on the fundamental platform features, inner workings, and API details. Next, there is a section that describes common patterns, best practices, algorithms, and data structures that emerge while writing concurrent software. The final section covers many of the common system-wide architectural and process concerns of concurrent programming. This is the only book you’ll need in order to learn the best practices and common patterns for programming with concurrency on Windows and .NET.
