Ride once again with the author, Rod Koch, and share his adventures as he struggles to gain another victory in the epic Baja 1000. His fi rst autobiography, 7 Years from Start to Finish, covered the early years of the Baja races from 1968-1975, up to the moment when the author became a fi rst place winner in that incredible endurance race down and around the Baja California peninsula. When the Green Flag Drops conti nues those adventures in off -road racing through the 1980s not just in Baja, but back in the U. S. A. with events like the Parker 400, Casinos 350, Mint 400 and the Riverside Off -Road Championships. The author then makes the transiti on into the intensity of the Pro-Rally race scene, bringing the reader along with him as he takes on some of the best and fastest off -road and performance rally drivers in North America. The action streaks across the High Sierras from San Francisco to Reno, from Las Vegas to Laughlin, Nevada, from Carson City to Virginia City to Yerington, through the rain, mud, snow, even the heat of the Mojave Desert near Palm Springs and east of Indio, wherever the dirt mountain and desert roads of the performance and Pro-Rally circuit goes. You are there with the author in the co-driver’s seat for what may be the ride of your life—if you dare.

As the car anticipates its dance around the racetrack, the engine growls and pops, and all senses become immersed in the smell of exhaust vapors and the sounds of raw speed and excitement. As it turns out, these also are the sights, sounds, and smells of chemistry! The car is a great example of an everyday device with an abundance of chemistry hiding in plain sight. In fact, almost everything in a car can be described from a chemical perspective. Understanding Chemistry through Cars guides novice chemists and car enthusiasts in learning basic chemical principles in an engaging context. It also supports upper-level chemists in synthesizing knowledge gained over a chemistry curriculum and seeing how it can manifest in the real world. This book provides an overview of chemistry in relation to cars. Various topics are discussed including the ideal gas law, materials chemistry, thermochemistry, solution chemistry, mass transport, polymerization, light/matter interactions, and oxidation and reduction. The book incorporates expected learning outcomes at the beginning of each section, detailed and easy-to-follow example problems, appendices reviewing basic chemical topics, suggestions on how to use the resource in upper-level courses. Ancillary materials, such as a Twitter account and an associated blog, allow readers to explore the latest in the world of car chemistry, ask questions, and interact directly with the authors and other experts.

*WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD 2014* A young army captain who risked execution to swim from free-market Taiwan to Communist China. A barber who made $150 million in the gambling dens of Macau. The richest woman in China, a recycling tycoon known as the ‘Wastepaper Queen’. Age of Ambition describes some of the billion individual lives that make up China’s story – one that unfolds on remote farms, in glittering mansions, and in the halls of power of the world’s largest authoritarian regime. Together they describe the defining clash taking place today: between the individual and the Communist Party’s struggle to retain control. Here is a China infused with a sense of boundless possibility and teeming romance. Yet it is also riven by contradictions. It is the world’s largest buyer of Rolls Royces and Ferraris yet the word ‘luxury’ is banned from billboards. It has more Christians than members of the Communist Party. And why does a government that has lifted more people from poverty than any other so strictly restrain freedom of expression? Based on years of research, Age of Ambition is a stunning narrative that reveals China as we have never understood it before.
