Matthew Steins comprehensive primer on sustainable living skillsfrom food and water to shelter and energy to first-aid and crisis-management skillsprepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live green in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe.When Technology Fails covers the gamut.

Forager - The Complete Trilogy

Forager - The Complete Trilogy

Forager - the Complete Trilogy - for one low price. 816 pages. Twenty-year-old Ethan Jones lives in a post apocalyptic, oppressive society that terminates anyone with mutations caused by nuclear radiation in an effort to keep the human race pure. Because of that, he lives every day in fear for his life, for he has an incredible mutation that gives him an edge when foraging in Melbourne's ruins. An edge he uses to survive encounters with the vile Skel savages who roam those ruins. His life becomes complicated when he rescues a mysterious Japanese girl from the Skel and brings her back with him, for she breaks the town's rigid conventions in her pursuit of him, placing their lives in jeopardy. Her odd behaviour and probing questions baffle him, as does the fact that he understands her when she speaks in Japanese. At the same time, the Skel ramp up their attacks on the foraging teams. Is this part of a larger plan that could spell the town's doom? And why do the Skel suddenly possess advanced technology - who is backing them, and why? Keeping his mutation secret, uncovering the girl's true intentions and trying to save the town all vie for Ethan's attention. And if he fails, not only his life, but the lives of all, are at stake. * This is a professionally edited, updated version of Forager - the Complete Trilogy, uploaded to Amazon on 21st May'15. * "The main thing that I really liked about Forager was that I was constantly taken by surprise." -- From Trips Down Imagination Road. "I love that everyone in Ethan's home is one way, while the Japanese girl he saves is almost the exact opposite. Woman are to be seen and not heard, but this girl has guts like you wouldn't believe." -- From Journey with Books

Islam

Islam

One of the largest and fastest-growing religions, Islam is currently practiced by approximately one-fifth of the world's population. Unlike most religions that only consist of acts of worship, rituals, and a set of beliefs, it also offers a just socio-politico-economic system, which is especially important today as we continue to make significant material and scientific progress. However, although it presents real solutions to problems faced by the whole of mankind, factors such as worldwide media propaganda and the current condition of the Muslim community have seriously distorted the public image of Islam. Adeel Zeerak hopes that his book Islam: A Superior System of Life will help change all that. He says that after careful study, even those with non-Muslim unprejudiced minds will appreciate the beauty of his religion's teachings. To prove the superiority of Islamic system over other systems, he provides concrete data obtained from authentic sources and refrains from using boastful or exaggerative language. Chapters in Islam: A Superior System of Life include: - This is Islam - Characteristics of the Islamic System - Spiritual System - Social System - Economic System - Political System - The Prophet, peace be upon him, the Message, and the Ummah "Despite commendable progress in the field of science and technology, this world is full of evil, exploitation, and injustice," says Zeerak, who believes any effort to find a solution to our problems continually fails because we choose to ignore the light of Divine Guidance. We all know what happened to prophet Noah's people when they rejected this guidance, but we, thankfully, still exist in this world to follow our Lord and accept Islam. Written for the Muslim and non-Muslim, Islam: A Superior System of Life is for readers interested in Islam, the prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the Islamic view of women, the concept of Khilafat, Islamic finance, Islamic spirituality, and Islamic history. The author promises that our obedien...

Total Power

In the next Mitch Rapp thriller, a cyber terrorist plot pulls the plug on US power, plunging the entire country into darkness and chaos. Mitch Rapp captures ISIS's top technology expert, who reveals that he was due to meet a man who insists he can take down the entire US power grid. But Rapp's operation to seize this man fails when his target evades the trap, and then ISIS operatives help the man do what he said he would - plunge the whole of America into darkness. With no understanding of how this unprecedented act was accomplished, the task of getting the power back on could take months. Perhaps even years. Rapp and his team embark on a desperate effort to find the man responsible so that they can interrogate him about the extent of the damage and how to repair it. But the operating environment is like nothing they've experienced before - computers and communications networks are down, fuel can no longer be pumped from gas stations, water and sanitation systems are on the brink of collapse, and America's supply of food is running out.Can Rapp get the lights back on before America collapses into starvation and chaos?Praise for the Mitch Rapp series 'Sizzles with inside information and CIA secrets' Dan Brown 'A cracking, uncompromising yarn that literally takes no prisoners' The Times 'Vince Flynn clearly has one eye on Lee Child's action thriller throne with this twist-laden story. . . instantly gripping' Shortlist 'Action-packed, in-your-face, adrenalin-pumped super-hero macho escapist fiction that does exactly what it says on the label' Irish Independent 'Mitch Rapp is a great character who always leaves the bad guys either very sorry for themselves or very dead' Guardian 'Outstanding . . .
