Food trailers swiping credit cards on their smart phones. Arab revolutionaries toppling dictators with Twitter and Facebook. And entrepreneurs running their entire businesses from an iPad. We wrote this manifesto to explore an exciting world propelled by disruptive innovation. This book is a collaborative effort that started as a Kickstarter project in 2012. Our goal was to write an easy to understand book about the cloud that covered the philosophy that underlies it. We wrote this book so that it would be accessible to everyone.

GOD, RACING AND WRITING: A NEW BOOK "A/My Holy Trinity"* " "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin Your God is a 'petrol-head', but He/She/It does have a sense of humour." - Thoughts of my good micro-biologist and dentist friend, Andy "Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly." - Franz Kafka There are only three sports: bullfighting, mountain climbing and motor racing; all the rest are merely games." - Ernest Hemingway From www.hemingwaythoughts.wordpress.com "Racing is a metaphor for life itself." "The Zone could simply be a gateway to the divine, one of God's methods of reminding us of His - and our - glorious power. Omnipresence means that power must be everywhere, everytime. Including the racetracks. Including today." - powerful writing from Clyde Brolin in his great book 'Overdrive: Formula One in the Zone' www.overdrivef1.com "Grand Prix racing is primarily a mental contest it's a battle of strength of wills by the combatants and a magnificent contest, the arena to display and share unique gifts and talents. Perhaps in this 'theatre of speed', F1 is a metaphor for life itself" - craig From my blogs www.raceinthezone.wordpress.com and www.godracingandwriting.wordpress.com "People talk about the Zone as a very outward thing, but it's not". It's very spiritual. To me, the Zone is when you're operating at the intuitive level. You're not thinking about it, so it happens naturally. You're at the top of your job. You've got your emotions controlled, your energy is channelled and you're just doing it. That's the Zone. You're just doing it." - British touring car driver (and numerous times World Touring Car Champion) , Andy Priax from Clyde Brolin's fascinating book OVERDRIVE: FORMULA ONE IN THE ZONE) www.overdrivef1.com which inspired me to write this one, my "own one" thanks Clyde "Look across all sport and observe the truly great. All had this zest for combat, this taste for being truly tested. All wished to explore (and even expand*) the limits of their own possibilities. * my words Time after time we are forced to wonder why one great talent succeeds and another still greater talent falls short? The reason is not mere "the will to win". Rather it is the will to be tested at the very highest level. It is the ability to not only dwell on the far edge of sporting possibility, but to hold one's balanceand to relish the proximity of the void." -The Times, London From https://formula1mind.wordpress.com/2015/02/25/look-across-all-sport-and-observe-the-truly-great-all-had-this-zest-for-combat-this-taste-for-being-truly-tested-all-wished-to-explore-and-even-expand-the-limits-of-their-own-possibilities/ THE WILL TO WIN "To drive fearlessly to win is to win another race - the race against fear - (trophies themselves are but symbols to delight old age); To challenge your fellow man in peaceful pursuit Of courage is the epitome of courage; To lose the race with grace is the embodiment of grace itself. To triumph is to achieve glory But glory is empty without the overthrow of fear, the acquisition Of courage, of grace - For the possession of these is the true glory. Good breeding is displayed in the ability to lose well And is primarily engendered by respect: Respect is created by the acknowledgement not of the other man's shortcomings or faults But essentially the acknowledgement of his virtues - For without virtue What is man - be he on the track challenging the fates, Or on a bed of sleep? For dearest dad and 'pal', a 'champion' - see the dream never died! Started today 4th August in the year 2015 and following on from my books Racing and Writing in the Zone and God and Formula 1 *To be continued and added to (as I write). Or perhaps publish another new edition??


Racing The Rain

RRP $24.99

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Once a Runner-acclaimed byRunner's World as "the best novel ever written about running"-comes that novel's prequel, the story of a world-class athlete coming of age in the 1950s and '60s on Florida's Gold Coast.

Quenton Cassidy is the skinniest boy in school, and also one of the fastest. Cassidy spends his afternoons exploring his primal surroundings: the local river, the nearby ocean, the lakes, swamps, and forests that dominate the landscape of the Florida everglades. While adventuring, Cassidy befriends Trapper Nelson, an iconoclastic hunter who lives in an isolated compound on the riverbank.

By junior high, Cassidy dreams of becoming a basketball player, but Nelson's influence runs deep and Cassidy begins to view running as a way to interact with the natural world. Warned of Nelson's checkered past, Cassidy dismisses the stories as hearsay, until his town is rocked by the disappearance and apparent murder of a prominent judge and his wife. Cassidy's loyalty to his friend is severely tested just as his opportunity to make his mark as a gifted runner comes to fruition.

Hailed by National Book Award winner Bob Shacochis as a "lovely novel that reminds us that what is most valuable is life is the spirit to accomplish impossible things,"Racing the Rain explores a small town's secrets while vividly capturing the physical endurance, determination, and mindset required of a champion. "A celebration of the purity of the sport" (Fort Worth Star-Telegram), it is an epic coming-of-age classic about the environments and friendships that shape us all.

International Law For A Water-scarce World

The fresh water crisis is the new environmental crisis of the 21st century. By 2050, 993 million people are projected to live in cities with perennial water shortages; 3.1 billion will confront seasonal water shortages within their urban areas. The traditional legal principles upon which existing water management is based are likely to be insufficient to deal with the water problems that loom from projected climate change, population growth, food production, increased industrialization, and ecosystem needs.


Ray Tracing And Beyond

RRP $323.99

This complete introduction to the use of modern ray tracing techniques in plasma physics describes the powerful mathematical methods generally applicable to vector wave equations in non-uniform media, and clearly demonstrates the application of these methods to simplify and solve important problems in plasma wave theory. Key analytical concepts are carefully introduced as needed, encouraging the development of a visual intuition for the underlying methodology, with more advanced mathematical concepts succinctly explained in the appendices, and supporting Matlab and Raycon code available online. Covering variational principles, covariant formulations, caustics, tunnelling, mode conversion, weak dissipation, wave emission from coherent sources, incoherent wave fields, and collective wave absorption and emission, all within an accessible framework using standard plasma physics notation, this is an invaluable resource for graduate students and researchers in plasma physics.
