Since his first appearance over sixty years ago, Mr Tompkins has become known and loved by many thousands of readers as the bank clerk whose fantastic dreams and adventures lead him into a world inside the atom. George Gamow's classic provides a delightful explanation of the central concepts in modern physics, from atomic structure to relativity, and quantum theory to fusion and fission. Roger Penrose's foreword introduces Mr Tompkins to a new generation of readers and reviews his adventures in light of recent developments in physics.

Winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics Ever since Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity burst upon the world in 1915 some of the most brilliant minds of our century have sought to decipher the mysteries bequeathed by that theory, a legacy so unthinkable in some respects that even Einstein himself rejected them. Which of these bizarre phenomena, if any, can really exist in our universe? Black holes, down which anything can fall but from which nothing can return; wormholes, short spacewarps connecting regions of the cosmos; singularities, where space and time are so violently warped that time ceases to exist and space becomes a kind of foam; gravitational waves, which carry symphonic accounts of collisions of black holes billions of years ago; and time machines, for traveling backward and forward in time. Kip Thorne, along with fellow theorists Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose, a cadre of Russians, and earlier scientists such as Oppenheimer, Wheeler and Chandrasekhar, has been in the thick of the quest to secure answers. In this masterfully written and brilliantly informed work of scientific history and explanation, Dr. Thorne, a Nobel Prize-winning physicist and the Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics Emeritus at Caltech, leads his readers through an elegant, always human, tapestry of interlocking themes, coming finally to a uniquely informed answer to the great question: what principles control our universe and why do physicists think they know the things they think they know? Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time has been one of the greatest best-sellers in publishing history. Anyone who struggled with that book will find here a more slowly paced but equally mind-stretching experience, with the added fascination of a rich historical and human component. Winner of the Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science.

Organization Development, Third Edition is today's complete overview of the OD discipline for managers, executives, administrators, consultants, and students alike. Fully updated to reflect major changes since the classic Second Edition, it explains how OD is now practiced, and how it is continuing to evolve. The authors illuminate each key theory in the field, giving readers the background they need to translate theory into action, make key choices, help organizations learn, and lead change. Coverage includes: What OD is, where it came from, and where it is headed Understanding OD as a process of change Defining the OD client (why your client may not be who you think it is) Diagnosing organizational problems Applying the Burke-Litwin model of organizational performance and change Assessing how well OD techniques work Working as an OD consultant, and much more

3rd book in the 5 book Trillion Theory series by Ed Lukowich. Black holes are shown to be instrumental in cosmic development and growth. This book takes the reader inside of a black hole to see how it operates to build the spheres of our cosmos. TT rids us of an explosive Big Bang origin just 13.7 billion years ago. TT shows an ancient cosmos a trillion-year old, recycled by black holes. Is there a black hole living right in our own backyard? ‘Black Holes Built Our Cosmos’ is an absolute critical part of new ‘Trillion Theory’ (TT) by Ed Lukowich.

“It is said that fact is sometimes stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more true than in the case of black holes. Black holes are stranger than anything dreamed up by science fiction writers.” In 2016 Professor Stephen Hawking delivered the BBC Reith Lectures on a subject that fascinated him for decades – black holes. In these flagship lectures the legendary physicist argued that if we could only understand black holes and how they challenge the very nature of space and time, we could unlock the secrets of the universe.

5th of 5 books in new cosmic Trillion Theory series by Ed Lukowich. This new theory places a black hole at the core of Earth and at the center of every cosmic sphere. These black holes built their spheres and now control the spin and gravity of their respective sphere. TT dismisses a Big Bang origin that our cosmos is only 13.7 billion years old. TT shows cosmos as an ancient trillion-year entity recycled by black holes. This 45 page book is a brief summary (a small smattering) of Trillion Theory (TT), also known as T Theory. More in-depth T Theory is available in TT’s 5 book cosmology series, via Amazon in Paperbacks and as EBooks. (Also inquire at Chapters book stores. See Ed’s website:
