Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jeremy McCarter pdf free download.

Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Eleven Tony Awards, including Best Musical

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country’s origins for a diverse new generation.

HAMILTON: THE REVOLUTION gives readers an unprecedented view of both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it. Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theater artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages–“since before this was even a show,” according to Miranda–traces its development from an improbable perfor­mance at the White House to its landmark opening night on Broadway six years later. In addition, Miranda has written more than 200 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, the full text of which is published here.

Their account features photos by the renowned Frank Ockenfels and veteran Broadway photographer, Joan Marcus; exclusive looks at notebooks and emails; interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sond­heim, leading political commentators, and more than 50 people involved with the production; and multiple appearances by Presi­dent Obama himself. The book does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became a national phenomenon: It demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don’t throw away their shot.

Pokémon Deluxe Essential Handbook: The Need-to-Know Stats and Facts on Over 700 Pokémon by Scholastic pdf free download.

This comprehensive guide book is an absolute must-have for Pokémon Trainers of all ages! It’s got everything you ever wanted to know about Pokémon in one convenient, easy-to-read format. All the facts and figures you’ll need to master the world of Pokémon Go are in here. It’s the perfect reference for Trainers on the go.

I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled this out of the box! It is so much nicer than I had expected it to be. I thought for the price I’d be getting a thin little book with a few Pokemon in it. What I got was a nice, thick, book full of good quality pages listing tons of different Pokemon. The layout of the pages is perfect, nicely organized and easy to use as a reference or for younger kids who are still getting the hang of reading. Great price on this! A must buy for any special Pokemon fans in your life. The excitement on my daughter’s face when she saw it said it all. Highly recommended!
I downloaded his for my 7 year old. She hasn’t put it down. Actually unless you want to scold your kid for hiding it in their backpack to take to school or sneaking it to bed to study the different characters, don’t buy it! I let her pick any special book she wanted as she has tons and she wanted this as she collects the cards too. I would call it a winner.

The Magnolia Story by Mark Dagostino pdf free download.

Are you ready to see your fixer upper?

These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV’s Fixer Upper. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like—Who are these people?What’s the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life? By renovating homes in Waco, Texas, and changing lives in such a winsome and engaging way, Chip and Joanna have become more than just the stars of Fixer Upper, they have become America’s new best friends.

The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, offering their fans a detailed look at their life together. From the very first renovation project they ever tackled together, to the project that nearly cost them everything; from the childhood memories that shaped them, to the twists and turns that led them to the life they share on the farm today.

They both attended Baylor University in Waco. However, their paths did not cross until Chip checked his car into the local Firestone tire shop where Joanna worked behind the counter. Even back then Chip was a serial entrepreneur who, among other things, ran a lawn care company, sold fireworks, and flipped houses. Soon they were married and living in their first fixer upper. Four children and countless renovations later, Joanna garners the attention of a television producer who notices her work on a blog one day.

Wonderful American success story – hard work, heart, family and faith. Just the right time for this tale – thank you for sharing it.

The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers by Christopher Vogler pdf free download

The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers by Christopher Vogler pdf free download

Description:

The udated and revised third edition provides new insights and observations from Vogler’s ongoing work on mythology’s influence on stories, movies, and man himself. The previous two editons of this book have sold over 180,000 units, making this book a ‘classic’ for screenwriters, writers, and novelists.

As a fan of Joseph Campbell and amateur writer, this book really appeals to me. It is more than just a how-to for aspiring novelists, it is a how-to for life. It is geared toward the writing of novels and stories with human drama and interaction, which makes it a bit more specialized. If you want a more general but very good reference for writing in general, then I recommend Simon & Schuster Handbook for Writers (MyCompLab Series) — it is worth it’s weight in gold.

Back to the book at hand. Christopher Vogler’s 3rd edition TWJ is actually a very compelling read rather than a dry textbook sort of how-to. It is a very clear and readable application of J. Campbell’s theories about the mythic structure in film and book. The inclusion of the 6 Star Wars movies and their epic story arc makes for very interesting reading too. Delving into this book reveals ways to better create strong characters with depth and substance that will help set any story apart. Its study of mythology gives it a strong classical foundation from which a writer can draw upon in the creation of their own epic sagas.

The author has worked on such films as The Thin Red Line, Fight Club, The Lion King, and Beauty and the Beast so have no doubt that he knows his stuff, and presents in well in this 365 page gem. Vogler shows you how to go beyond the normal everyday writing (emails, letters, articles, etc.) to tackle the daunting task of structuring a novel that is thousands of words in size.

Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business by Neil Postman pdf free download.

What happens when media and politics become forms of entertainment? In the season of Trump and Hillary, Neil’s Postman’s essential guide to the modern media is more relevant than ever.

Originally published in 1985, Neil Postman’s groundbreaking polemic about the corrosive effects of television on our politics and public discourse has been hailed as a twenty-first-century book published in the twentieth century. Now, with television joined by more sophisticated electronic media—from the Internet to cell phones to DVDs—it has taken on even greater significance. Amusing Ourselves to Death is a prophetic look at what happens when politics, journalism, education, and even religion become subject to the demands of  entertainment. It is also a blueprint for regaining controlof our media, so that they can serve our highest goals.

“Way back in 1985 – the year Stern conquered the New York airwaves and a brash young Trump was best known for breaking apart the upstart USFL football league – one prophet predicted today’s political crisis. That prophet’s name was Neil Postman, a New York University professor and media critic. His landmark book Amusing Ourselves to Death predicted that schlock entertainment values would eventually strangle American democracy like a cluster of poison ivy…It’s unlikely that Trump has ever read Amusing Ourselves to Death, but his ascent would not have surprised Postman.” -CNN

Review

“I can’t think of a more prophetic, more thoughtful, more necessary – and yes, more entertaining – book about media culture.” –Victor Navasky, National Book Award-winning author of The Art of Controversy

“All I can say about Neil Postman’s brilliant Amusing Ourselves to Death is: Guilty As Charged.” –Matt Groening, Creator of The Simpsons

“As a fervent evangelist of the age of Hollywood, I publicly opposed Neil Postman’s dark picture of our media-saturated future. But time has proved Postman right. He accurately foresaw that the young would inherit a frantically all-consuming media culture of glitz, gossip, and greed.” –Camille Paglia

“A brilliant, powerful, and important book. This is an indictment that Postman has laid down and, so far as I can see, an irrefutable one.” –Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World

Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words by Randall Munroe pdf free download.

Have you ever tried to learn more about some incredible thing, only to be frustrated by incomprehensible jargon?  Randall Munroe is here to help.  In Thing Explainer, he uses line drawings and only the thousand (or, rather, “ten hundred”) most common words to provide simple explanations for some of the most interesting stuff there is, including:

  • food-heating radio boxes (microwaves)
  • tall roads (bridges)
  • computer buildings (datacenters)
  • the shared space house (the International Space Station)
  • the other worlds around the sun (the solar system)
  • the big flat rocks we live on (tectonic plates)
  • the pieces everything is made of (the periodic table)
  • planes with turning wings (helicopters)
  • boxes that make clothes smell better (washers and dryers)
  • the bags of stuff inside you (cells)

How do these things work? Where do they come from? What would life be like without them? And what would happen if we opened them up, heated them up, cooled them down, pointed them in a different direction, or pressed this button? In Thing Explainer, Munroe gives us the answers to these questions and so many more. Funny, interesting, and always understandable, this book is for anyone—age 5 to 105—who has ever wondered how things work, and why.

Review

“Brilliant…a wonderful guide for curious minds.”—Bill Gates

“Like any good work of science writing, [Thing Explainer] is equal parts lucid, funny, and startling.’’—NewYorker.com

“Clever, intricate”New York Magazine, The Approval Matrix (“highbrow, brilliant”)

“Funny, precise and beautifully designed” —The Guardian

“…with witty, playful diagrams, you’ll be understanding nuclear reactors (‘heavy metal power buildings’) in no time.” —NPR.org, Best Books of 2015

“Whimsical…Munroe’s masterpiece is the antidote to scientific jargon, ably demonstrating that not knowing the exact name for something doesn’t mean you can’t grasp how it works. The same holds for those doing the explaining: you don’t need to use big words to convey meaning. If anything, it just gets in the way.” —Gizmodo, Best Science Books of 2015

“Required reading for the curious.” —Popular Science

“This book is a feast for the eyes and a party for your brain. I cannot more highly recommend that you get this for yourself, your favorite nerd, or someone who just loves beautiful drawings.” —Scientific American

“One of the charms of this new book is that it imbues everything between its covers with a childlike and unpretentious sense of delight in humanity’s intellectual achievements.”—Tor.com

“[Thing Explainer] soars in both explanatory clarity and entertainment value…Munroe delightfully challenges us to reassess our preconceptions and think of things in new ways.” —American Scientist

Me without you by Lisa Swerling; Ralph Lazar pdf free download.

Looking for the perfect way to say I love you to a special someone? From famed illustrators Lisa Swerling and Ralph Lazar, the New York Times bestselling book Me Without You features countless cute color illustrations of scenarios that are simply incomplete without two. A uniquely charming gift for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, or just because, readers will find themselves dipping into this beguiling book again and again.

I got this for my wife as a gift on Valentine’s Day (though not all she got). It was very cute and she enjoyed it even more than I expected. I guess it’s basically formatted like a children’s book, but cute. It begins with “Me without you is like…”, the next page is “… sky without blue”, and then every following page has some other little rhyming comparison, such as “hair without do”, “ghost without boo”, “kung without fu”, etc., and just keeps going on and on like that for every page, each with a little illustration.

I bought this book for my boyfriend for Valentines day. Its really long and my favorite references were the Doctor Who ones and the Harry Potter ones! Its just a really cute and simple way to say when we’re not together I’m not complete!
This is a great little book that works as a perfect gift or reminder to tell someone you care about them. The illustrations are cute and every page rhymes. I gave it as a gift to my girlfriend and she loves it. It’s something we’ll keep out, lying around for a quick glance when we need a pick me up.
Lisa Swerling and Ralph Lazar are best known for their cartoon lines Harold’s Planet and Vimrod. Their greeting cards have sold in the millions. They live with their children in Marin County, California.
