              Topgun (Paperback)

              Top Gun became a household name with the worldwide success of the film of the same title. The 1986 blockbuster starring Tom Cruise as a hotshot U.S. Navy fighter pilot was so popular (drawing $356 million worldwide) that recruiters set up desks in theaters that were showing it, l...ooking to attract the next generation of combat aviators. The movie did for Navy pilots what The Right Stuff did for astronauts. With the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the real TOPGUN-as the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons program was known-approaching in 2019, and with Jerry Bruckheimer's sequel, Top Gun: Maverick, set to shoot next year, this is the time to publish the real story of the actual risk takers, disruptors, and innovators who revolutionized the art of aerial combat and created the center for excellence and incubator of leadership that thrives to this day. Here is the inside story of TOPGUN, told by the man who was picked to lead it at the start, from war to peace and back to war again, on and off the flight line, and through all six of our decades. Though Pedersen was a part of it at the beginning, some other great pilots carried on our work and he is eager to pay them tribute and make the book a celebration of our whole community. It's a great story, full of interesting characters and exciting history that American should know.

              The AfterGrief: Finding Your Way Along the Long Arc of Loss

              The AfterGrief: Finding Your Way Along the Long Arc of Loss (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Shouldn't I be over this by now? Why do I still feel the pain? Because of the common assumption that grief should be time-limited, too many of us believe we've done it 'wrong' when sadness reemerges months or even years after loss. In The Aftergrief, Hope Edelman offers a new and... reality-affirming paradigm- grief is not an emotion to pass through on the way to feeling better, but a state that we repeatedly return to as we experience important life transitions and new crises. Drawing from her own encounters with the ripple effects of early loss, as well as interviews with more than seventy-five people, Edelman offers advice for reassessing loss and adjusting the stories we tell ourselves about its impact on our identities. With guidance for reframing a story of loss, finding equilibrium within it, and experiencing renewed growth and purpose, The Aftergrief shows that though grief may be a lifelong process, it doesn't have to be a lifelong struggle.

Until the night she meets ...notorious playboy Alexi 'Count' Vronsky and they are pulled irresistibly together . . . Soon Anna must decide how much of her life she is willing to let go for the chance to be with him. And when a shocking revelation threatens to shatter their relationship, she is forced to question whether she can trust Alexi - before first love morphs into something much more dangerous. A story about privilege and desire, about the pressures and dangers of trying to be perfect and, above all, about the dizzying, glorious, heart-stopping experience of first love - and first heartbreak.

              Since prehistory, bunkers have been built as protection from cataclysmic social and environmental forces, and as places of power and transformation. Today, the bunker has become the extreme expression of our greatest fears: from pandemics to climate change and nuclear war. And on...ce you look, it doesn't take long to start seeing bunkers everywhere. In Bunker, acclaimed urban explorer and cultural geographer Bradley Garrett explores the global and rapidly growing movement of 'prepping' for social and environmental collapse, or 'doomsday'. From the 'dread merchants' hustling safe spaces in the American mid-West to eco-fortresses in Thailand, from geoscrapers to armoured mobile bunkers, Bunker is a brilliant, original and never less than deeply disturbing story from the frontlines of the way we live now: an illuminating reflection on our age of disquiet and dread that brings it into new, sharp focus. The bunker, Garrett shows, is all around us: in malls, airports, gated communities, the vehicles we drive. Most of all, he shows, it's in our minds.

Calls for equality are sweeping America, but sixteen-year-old Ethan Harper is about to discover just how deep the roots of racism run. When mixed-race Ethan is sent to stay with his white uncl...e and aunt in Ellison, Alabama, he soon discovers that the only thing smaller than the town itself are the minds of its inhabitants. Except for Juniper Jones - resident artist, oddball and self-proclaimed free spirit.

Armed with two bikes and an unlimited supply of root beer floats, the pair set out to find their place in a town that's set on rejecting them. Along the way, they will find hope, friendship - and maybe something more . . .

              Three great strands of practice and belief run through human history. In religion, the primary human relationship is with one god or many gods. Science distances people from the world. Magic is human beings participating in the universe directly, and the universe influencing and ...shaping us. Magic preceded religion and science. And many people believe in magic: we might swear at the printer or believe that the mind of a patient influences recovery. But over the last few centuries, magic has developed a bad reputation. Professor Chris Gosden restores it to its place in the history of the world, exploring its positive qualities and asking what it can offer the world today. From the curses and charms of ancient Greek, Roman and Jewish magic, to the shamanistic traditions of Eurasia, indigenous America and Africa, the alchemy of the Renaissance, colonial dismissals of magic as backward, and quantum physics today, his colourful history provides the missing part of the story of civilisation. Drawing on decades of research around the world, with incredible breadth and authority, and stunning detail - from the first known horoscope, through the statue ordered into exile, to the power of tattoos - Gosden shows what magic can offer and how we might use it to rethink our relationship with the world.
