Dan Millman, “Way of the Peaceful Warrior”
HJ Kramer | ISBN: 1932073205 | April 13, 2006 | PDF | 240 pages | 1.3 MB
“ During his junior year at the University of California, Dan Millman first stumbled upon his mentor (nicknamed Socrates) at an all-night gas station. At the time, Millman hoped to become a world-champion gymnast. “To survive the lessons ahead, you’re going to need far more energy than ever before,” Socrates warned him that night. “You must cleanse your body of tension, free your mind of stagnant knowledge, and open your heart to the energy of true emotion.” From there, the unpredictable Socrates proceeded to teach Millman the “way of the peaceful warrior.” At first Socrates shattered every preconceived notion that Millman had about academics, athletics, and achievement. But eventually Millman stopped resisting the lessons, and began to try on a whole new ideology–one that valued being conscious over being smart, and strength in spirit over strength in body. Although the character of the cigarette-smoking Socrates seems like a fictional, modern-day Merlin, Millman asserts that he is based on an actual person. Certain male readers especially appreciate the coming-of-age theme, the haunting love story with the elusive woman Joy, and the challenging of Western beliefs about masculine power and success.
The Very Modern Mindreader: And other Miracles by Richard Osterlind | PDF | 1.2 MB
The Triumphant Return Of One Of Mentalism’s Living Legends! Richard Osterlind’s name has always been associated with strong and practical effects guaranteed to leave a powerful impression on an audience. In this new manuscript, The Very Modern Mindreader and Other Miracles, his first release of completely new material to the magic and mentalism fraternity in over ten years, Osterlind delivers three outstanding effects, ready to go right into your professional repertoire.
The first, “The Very Modern Mindreader,” takes Annemann and Hewitt’s classic routine into the 21st Century. With practical touches developed over thirty years and never before released, Osterlind gives you the power to divine information sealed in envelopes by audience members with no gimmicks whatsoever-in fact, all of the elements may be left with the audience. This is reputation-making material, suitable for all venues from close–up to platform. The second offering is the “Osterlind ESP Card System,” a revolutionary new idea for ESP cards, reminiscent of his now-legendary “Breakthrough Card System.” Although there have been thousands of effects with these cards, there has never been a routine for the basic tests for which they were devised. Osterlind solves this problem with a stack for the ESP deck which looks random, has no exceptions to the rules and is cyclical so that the last card leads back to the first. In addition to allowing you to “test” your ESP powers according to the cards’ instructions, this new stack will open up realms of new effects with these wonderful cards.
The third effect is really two in one. The three-phrase prediction effect has always been a favorite of Osterlind and he’s released a number of these ideas over the years. “StenoESP” allows you to perform this classic “Mental Epic”-type effect using nothing but a steno pad and grease pencil. The working is clean, easy and convincing. In addition, Osterlind offers an additional routine that uses slightly different apparatus and streamlines the effect for a quick stage presentation.

Как укротить странное создание по имени ”компьютерщик”, за уши дотащить его до алтаря - и при этом не свихнуться? Если вас вдруг угораздило влюбиться в программиста - сразу приготовьтесь к тому, что ваша жизнь пойдет наперекосяк. Потому что программисты - они не только непостижимые, но и совершенно несносные люди. У них и время течет не так, как у нас, и мыслят они совершенно непонятными категориями, а уж их поведение в обычной жизни может поставить в тупик кого угодно. Однако девушка Ира, влюбившаяся в программиста Сергея, все-таки не теряет надежды приручить это странное создание. Описанный в данном произведении путь этой парочки от знакомства до свадьбы изобилует всякими смешными, забавными и гротескными эпизодами, которые доставят истинное удовольствие любителям живого, динамичного и остроумного языка.

Knowledge and its Limits presents a systematic new conception of knowledge as a fundamental kind of mental state sensitive to the knower’s environment. It makes a major contribution to the debate between externalist and internalist philosophies of mind, and breaks radically with the epistemological tradition of analysing knowledge in terms of true belief. The theory casts light on a wide variety of philosophical issues: the problem of scepticism, the nature of evidence, probability and assertion, the dispute between realism and anti-realism and the paradox of the surprise examination. Williamson relates the new conception to structural limits on knowledge which imply that what can be known never exhausts what is true. The arguments are illustrated by rigorous models based on epistemic logic and probability theory. The result is a new way of doing epistemology for the twenty-first century.
H. Ted Davis , Kendall T. Thomson, “Linear Algebra and Linear Operators in Engineering: with Applications in Mathematica”
Academic Press; 1st edition (January 15, 2000) | ISBN:012206349X | 547 pages | PDF | 15,4 Mb
Designed for advanced engineering, physical science, and applied mathematics students, this innovative textbook is an introduction to both the theory and practical application of linear algebra and functional analysis. The book is self-contained, beginning with elementary principles, basic concepts, and definitions. The important theorems of the subject are covered and effective application tools are developed, working up to a thorough treatment of eigenanalysis and the spectral resolution theorem. Building on a fundamental understanding of finite vector spaces, infinite dimensional Hilbert spaces are introduced from analogy. Wherever possible, theorems and definitions from matrix theory are called upon to drive the analogy home. The result is a clear and intuitive segue to functional analysis, culminating in a practical introduction to the functional theory of integral and differential operators. Numerous examples, problems, and illustrations highlight applications from all over engineering and the physical sciences. Also included are several numerical applications, complete with Mathematica solutions and code, giving the student a “hands-on” introduction to numerical analysis. Linear Algebra and Linear Operators in Engineering is ideally suited as the main text of an introductory graduate course, and is a fine instrument for self-study or as a general reference for those applying mathematics.
· Contains numerous Mathematica examples complete with full code and solutions
