Wooden toy trucks are great projects both for the woodworker who builds them as well as for the end user who'll derive hours of pleasure playing with them. In this collection of 10 working vehicles, author Les Neufeld has selected toys that are consistently rated by toy manufacturers and retailers as top sellers. All the toys are meant to be used and played with, so they are sturdily built and can be made by woodworkers of all skill levels. The toys are grouped into three sections: four giant machines, including a dump truck and loader; three midsize working trucks; and an eclectic group of vehicles, including a school bus in monster-truck mode and an articulated 8-wheel tractor with trailer.

In this definitive study, J. D. Hunley traces launch-vehicle technology from Goddard's early rockets through the Titan IVA and the Space Shuttle, with a focus on space-launch vehicles. Focusing especially on the engineering culture of the program, Hunley communicates the very human side of technological development by means of anecdotes, character sketches, and case studies of problems faced by rocket engineers. He shows how such a highly adaptive approach enabled the evolution of a hugely complicated technology that was impressive--but decidedly not rocket science.

A book concerning Russian Limousines, and the Chinese models that were initially derived from them, has never been attempted before. This book investigates the whole story of why the Soviet Communist Party required such a bourgeois product, and how production was subsequently achieved. Following the orders of Stalin, work on the Limousines commenced during the first Five Year Plan (1927-1933) at the Putilov Works, late the Kirov Zavod, where the Leningrad L-1 was made in a limited number. From these beginnings, the Moscow and Gorky models emerged, and later the Chinese-derived types made with Russian aid during the late 1950s. Covering all of these models, up to the last one produced in 2003, and featuring full specifications translated from the relevant primary sources in Russian and Chinese literature, this is a meticulous and unique account of a previously neglected subject.

The story of survival of a huge, mega-earthquake in the Los Angeles area involves one family and how they are able to prepare and cope with a myriad of problems and challenges. The tale involves many ethical and moral dilemmas, which arise throughout the entire story. Also included are the numerous recommendations and suggestions of how to prepare for the worst case scenarios, far more deadly than those depicted by the various governmental agencies responsible for the ultimate rescue of the civilian victims. The maxim is basically to anticipate the largest degree of catastrophe possible, prepare for same and, if conditions are less then predicted, survival will be accomplished more easily. The fictional content is sprinkled, generously, with ideas, thoughts and suggestions as to how to effectively deal with a tremendous natural disaster. Remember, its not if this will happen, its only a matter of when.
