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.

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.

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.

At a moment of great discovery, one Big Idea can change the world... Black holes have long been a topic of fascination, from pop culture to science fiction. Stephen Hawking's discoveries and research on black holes and cosmology have made him an academic celebrity and perhaps the best-known scientist of our time. His book, A Brief History of Time, was a record-breaking, worldwide bestseller and his Big Ideas have changed the way we view the world and the universe, for ever. Hawking & Black Holes tells the incredible story of Hawking's early life in which he created his own complicated board games, to his being diagnosed with AML, and his subsequent brilliant research into black holes and the cosmos. Hawking's Big Idea is presented in an accessible and engrossing way, providing an explanation of the meaning and importance of his discoveries, and the way his work has changed and influenced our lives today. The Big Idea series is a fascinating look at the greatest advances in our scientific history, and at the men and women who made these fundamental breakthroughs.

The autobiography of one of the preeminent figures in twentieth-century physics. He studied with Niels Bohr, taught Richard Feynman, and boned up on relativity with his friend and colleague Albert Einstein. John Archibald Wheeler's fascinating life brings us face to face with the central characters and discoveries of modern physics. He was the first American to learn of the discovery of nuclear fission, later coined the term "black hole," led a renaissance in gravitation physics, and helped to build Princeton University into a mecca for physicists. From nuclear physics, to quantum theory, to relativity and gravitation, Wheeler's work has set the trajectory of research for half a century. His career has brought him into contact with the most brilliant minds of his field; Fermi, Bethe, Rabi, Teller, Oppenheimer, and Wigner are among those he called colleagues and friends. In this rich autobiography, Wheeler reveals in fascinating detail the excitement of each discovery, the character of each colleague, and the underlying passion for knowledge that drives him still.

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: www.trillionist.com

Master the modern discipline of Organizational Development (OD), and use it to plan and drive effective change. 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
