<b>Voted the Best Space Book of 2018 by the Space Hipsters</b><br /><br /><b>The dramatic inside story of the epic search and recovery operation after the Columbia space shuttle disaster.</b><br /><br /> On February 1, 2003, <i>Columbia</i> disintegrated on reentry before the nation鈥檚 eyes, and all seven astronauts aboard were lost. Author Mike Leinbach, Launch Director of the space shuttle program at NASA鈥檚 John F. Kennedy Space Center was a key leader in the search and recovery effort as NASA, FEMA, the FBI, the US Forest Service, and dozens more federal, state, and local agencies combed an area of rural east Texas the size of Rhode Island for every piece of the shuttle and her crew they could find. Assisted by hundreds of volunteers, it would become the largest ground search operation in US history. This comprehensive account is told in four parts: <ul><li>Parallel Confusion</li><li>Courage, Compassion, and Commitment</li><li>Picking Up the Pieces</li><li>A Bittersweet Victory</li></ul> For the first time, here is the definitive inside story of the <i>Columbia</i> disaster and recovery and the inspiring message it ultimately holds. In the aftermath of tragedy, people and communities came together to help bring home the remains of the crew and nearly 40 percent of shuttle, an effort that was instrumental in piecing together what happened so the shuttle program could return to flight and complete the International Space Station. <b><i>Bringing</i> Columbia <i>Home</i></b> shares the deeply personal stories that emerged as NASA employees looked for lost colleagues and searchers overcame immense physical, logistical, and emotional challenges and worked together to accomplish the impossible.<br /><br /> Featuring a foreword and epilogue by astronauts Robert Crippen and Eileen Collins, and dedicated to the astronauts and recovery search persons who lost their lives, this is an incredible, compelling narrative about the best of humanity in the darkest of times and about how a failure at the pinnacle of human achievement became a story of cooperation and hope.

<b>On 20 June 1994, a "dangerous" airman shot his mental-health doctors before opening fire on the patrons and staff of a military hospital. Days later, a B-52 bomber crashed while performing air-show maneuvers killing the crew and a pilot who was known for his reckless flying. The shooting spree and aviation disaster struck suddenly... but not without warning.</b><br /><br /><i>Warnings Unheeded</i> is the work of former Air Force criminal investigator Andy Brown. As a young military policeman, Brown responded to the base hospital where he sought out the gunman and ended his murderous rampage. After years of research and interviews with the people who witnessed the tragedies unfold, Brown's narrative tells the complete story of the killing spree and the plane crash.<br /><br /><i>Warnings Unheeded</i> reveals the precursors of violence and disaster giving a voice to the doctors, aviators, and airmen who warned of the impending tragedies and uncovering the leadership culture that allowed two men to travel unchecked on a path toward destruction. This extraordinary story also gives a voice to the ordinary men and women who became life-saving first responders, victims who fought to survive, and survivors who fought for answers, accountability and change. In a parallel storyline, Brown shares how he prepared for the deadly gunfight, describes his encounter with the gunman, and offers a candid insight into the hidden cost of becoming a "hero."<br /><br /><b>If you appreciate nonfiction storytelling or learning from history, read <i>Warnings Unheeded</i> now in paperback, hardcover, ebook and audiobook.</b><br /><br />*** Contains more than 70 images and photographs ***<br /><br /><br />What people are saying about <i>Warnings Unheeded:</i><br /><br /><li><i>"In vivid and thoroughly researched detail, Andy Brown masterfully weaves two tragic stories ... this is an important and well-written read."</i><b> 鈥擥regory K. Moffatt, Ph.D., Author of <i>Blind-Sided: Homicide Where it is Least Expected</i> and <i>A Violent Heart</i></b></li><br /><br /><li><i>"A highly readable book ... from a unique source. Recommended for a wide audience."</i><b> 鈥擝est-selling true-crime author, Ron Franscell</b></li><br /><br /><li><i>"An absolute tour de force of non-fiction storytelling. This is easily one of the best non-fiction books I've ever read."</i><b> 鈥擜mazon Review</b></li><br /><br /><li><i>"Best book I've read in some time. Without lurid details or overwrought prose, Andy Brown helps us understand what Fairchild AFB had to endure in those tragic days of June in 1994. With a clear and concise voice, he illustrates the events leading up to the twin tragedies with a thoroughness and professionalism I suspect he brings to every task he takes on. But this is no dry recounting of facts, and Brown's compassion for the victims is as clear as his prose. This book kept me up far later than I intended every night while reading it, and it will stay with me for the rest of my life. We are very fortunate that the man who stopped the shooter has written this book for us - doubly so that he has proven to be a talented writer. I highly recommend this book."</i><b> 鈥擜mazon Review</b></li>

<b><i>In a civilized society, violence is rarely the answer. But when it is-it's the <u>only</u> answer. </i></b><br /><br />The sound of breaking glass downstairs in the middle of the night. <br /><br />The words, "Move and you die." <br /><br />The hands on your child, or the knife to your throat. <br /><br />In this essential book, self-protection expert and former military intelligence officer Tim Larkin changes the way we think about violence in order to save our lives. By deconstructing our assumptions about violence-its morality, its function in modern society, how it <i>actually </i>works-Larkin unlocks the shackles of our own taboos and arms us with what we need to know to prevent, prepare for, and survive the unthinkable event of life-or-death violence. Through a series of harrowing true-life stories, Larkin demonstrates that violence is a tool equally effective in the hands of the "bad guy" or the "good guy"; that the person who acts first, fastest and with the full force of their body is the one who survives; and that each and every one of us is capable of being that person when our lives are at stake. <br /><br />An indispensable resource, <i>When Violence is the Answer</i> will remain with you long after you've finished reading, as the bedrock of your self-protection skills and knowledge. <br /><br />
