The Logic of Microspace is three books in one. The technologies underlying small space were the subject of Rick’s widely acclaimed first book, Micro Space Craft, which sold out its first printing by word of mouth. This highly understandable, entertaining book, called the only comedic "page-turner" ever written about aerospace engineering, has been thoroughly updated and is the first book within The Logic of Microspace. The second book within this trilogy-inside-one-"cover" brings the same understandable, humorous, fast-reading and informative style of the technical sections to a complementary book on minimum size and cost mission management and the philosophical and often surprising psychological underpinnings of minimum-cost space missions. The third part of The Logic of Microspace is a dramatic novella, possibly the first in any aerospace text, describing several alluring opportunities for benefiting humanity and the space industry via low-cost satellites and space missions. 1.

There are, to be sure, hundreds if not thousands of books on the Roman Empire: a book on every emperor, a book on every century, a book on every battle or assassination, a book on every meal enjoyed by every despotic Caesar. The Roman Empire has been the subject of countless tomes and innumerable movies. Why, then, should you take another look?Because - to be blunt - the books tend to be bloated and the movies, interminable. A quick scan of the particulars reveals that books on the Roman Empire are undeniably plentiful - and undeniably long. Before a listener gets past Romulus and Remus, the very length of the book becomes a distraction. The listener is only a few pages into the history and already dreading the monumental amount of time that will be required to finish it. The book is set aside in frustration.The Roman Empire: The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire lets you avoid all of that. Instead of snooze-inducing, micro-detailed accounts of what Hannibal’s rear guard soldiers had for lunch two days before leaving Carthage for Italy, you’ll get only the pertinent details of the Roman Empire’s existence. No extraneous details, no bloat. This is history as it’s meant to be written: factual, concise, informative, and entertaining.Unlike the ancient world of Rome, the modern world moves very fast. Your time is valuable, as is your interest in the world around you. The Roman Empire: The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire allows you to satisfy both needs. Accessibly written and easily digestible in small bites, you’ll get your fill of the Roman Empire’s smorgasbord of characters and events.You already know, if vaguely, some of the characters: Julius Caesar, Nero, Constantine. Prepare to meet many more. Prepare to be surprised. History is seldom predictable, and no history is less predictable than that of the Roman Empire. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Margittai.

A current, constructive, and actionable exploration of today's racial landscape, offering straightforward clarity that listeners of all races need to contribute to the dismantling of the racial divide In So You Want to Talk About Race, editor-at-large of the Establishment Ijeoma Oluo offers a contemporary, accessible take on the racial landscape in America, addressing head-on such issues as privilege, police brutality, intersectionality, micro-aggressions, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the "N" word. Perfectly positioned to bridge the gap between people of color and white Americans struggling with race complexities, Oluo answers the questions listeners don't dare ask, and explains the concepts that continue to elude everyday Americans. Oluo is an exceptional writer with a rare ability to be straightforward, funny, and effective in her coverage of sensitive, hyper-charged issues in America. Her messages are passionate but finely tuned, and crystallize ideas that would otherwise be vague by empowering them with aha-moment clarity. Her writing brings to mind voices like Ta-Nehisi Coates and Roxane Gay, and Jessica Valenti in Full Frontal Feminism, and a young Gloria Naylor, particularly in Naylor's seminal essay "The Meaning of a Word."
