John Barnard revolutionised Formula 1, and motorsport as a whole, through his unrelenting quest for perfection in racing car design. Written with Barnard's cooperation and with input from dozens of associates, drivers and rivals, this biography tells the entire story, both personal and professional, of a British design genius. Barnard's technical achievements are explored in detail--and in accessible language--with special emphasis on his brilliant initiatives while at McLaren (the first carbon-fiber composite chassis) and Ferrari (the first semi-automatic gearbox). The Perfect Car is also a human-interest story, telling a tale of innovation under intense pressure while Barnard endeavoured to maintain a stable family life. This is a landmark book that will be relished by anyone interested in motorsport and design.

Why do I continue to do the things I don't want to do? Why do I not do the things I know I should be doing? Author Jeff Brewer knows every believer faces those questions. "The Only Way To Live" exposes the flawed way most Christians try to live their lives and reveals the way to the fullness of the life lived by Jesus. The purpose is not to teach believers anything, but to train disciples to live the life Jesus clearly taught us to live. This is not a philosophical book. The practical steps you need to take to become a full-time disciple of Jesus are clearly outlined. When you finish reading this book you will know what Jesus meant in John 15 when He commanded us to 'abide in the vine.' You will know what Paul meant in Romans 8 when he exhorted us to 'walk in the Spirit.' "The Only Way To Live" will challenge you to change the way you live your Christian life.

LA isn't the easiest place to find goodness in humanity, and the six square downtown blocks Packer and Jack call home aren't the friendliest. Packer never had much choice; while going for ice cream, he was orphaned and took to misquoting the Bible to explain the unexplainable. Jack, wanting only to maintain the status quo, was abruptly shunted out the door of a twenty-year marriage. After a month in Beverly Park sanitarium, she learned to dine from samples on Safeway's deli counter and hide in plain sight dressed as a man. When the two meet at Sunday Breakfast, Packer takes an interest. On the street, he is the more capable of the two, having created out of a chaotic world his own peaceable kingdom. Jack is so frightened she can't even admit to her gender. After several years of self-pity, Jack cleans up but must own her current reality before she can claim her future. Both Packer and Jack reveal secrets, strategies, internal pain, true goodness, and love. The understanding and acceptance that permit both Packer and Jack to let go and grow those lessons are universal. This title is published by eLectio Publishing and is distributed worldwide by Untreed Reads."

Former F1 mechanic turned TV broadcaster Steve Matchett is trapped overnight in New York, in a fogbound JFK Airport with some fellow motor racing enthusiasts. With no sign of the fog letting up and a long twelve hours to get through, talk inevitably turns to Formula 1. During the course of the night, and fuelled by regular trips to the departure lounge bar, the three protagonists, drawing upon Matchett's encyclopaedic knowledge of life in the F1 pit lane, decide to piece together the perfect Formula 1 Grand Prix car... Starting with the monocoque (or chassis) and moving through the engine type, gearbox, exhaust, suspension and aerodynamics etc, no bolt is left unexamined in Matchett's comprehensive and detailed, technical expose of the inner workings of the fastest cars on the planet. In straightforward, clear and concise language, Matchett explains how the F1 teams have arrived at their current state-of-the-art designs; how, exactly, a Formula 1 car is put together.

'Adrian has a unique gift for understanding drivers and racing cars. He is ultra competitive but never forgets to have fun. An immensely likeable man.' Damon HillThe world's foremost designer in Formula One, Adrian Newey OBE is arguably one of Britain's greatest engineers and this is his fascinating, powerful memoir.How to Build a Car explores the story of Adrian's unrivalled 35-year career in Formula One through the prism of the cars he has designed, the drivers he has worked alongside and the races in which he's been involved. A true engineering genius, even in adolescence Adrian's thoughts naturally emerged in shape and form - he began sketching his own car designs at the age of 12 and took a welding course in his school summer holidays. From his early career in IndyCar racing and on to his unparalleled success in Formula One, we learn in comprehensive, engaging and highly entertaining detail how a car actually works. Adrian has designed for the likes of Mario Andretti, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost, Damon Hill, David Coulthard, Mika Hakkinen, Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel, always with a shark-like purity of purpose: to make the car go faster. And while his career has been marked by unbelievable triumphs, there have also been deep tragedies; most notably Ayrton Senna's death during his time at Williams in 1994. Beautifully illustrated with never-before-seen drawings, How to Build a Car encapsulates, through Adrian's remarkable life story, precisely what makes Formula One so thrilling - its potential for the total synchronicity of man and machine, the perfect combination of style, efficiency and speed.

"Plumley's humor sparkles in this thoroughly engaging tale about what's real and what isn't." --Booklist (starred review) Nationally bestselling author Lisa Plumley has charmed readers and critics alike with her gift for sparkling screwball romance. Now, she turns reality TV upside down with a totally different take on prime-time love... After her long-running sitcom is cancelled, actress Marley Madison finds herself a typecast has-been at the ripe old age of twenty-seven. Her career needs a jump-start, fast--and an incognito appearance on the hit reality game show Dream Date will prove her acting ability to the world. But before long, she finds herself wanting to prove something entirely different to her fellow contestant, Jake Jarvis. There's something decidedly un-Hollywood about Jake, a sportscaster whose laid-back charm belies something deeper than an intimate understanding of box scores. And the better Marley gets to know him, the harder it is to remember her motivation. Because she's beginning to realize that what makes her career could break both their hearts--if reality and honesty are on different wavelengths... "Engaging, well-developed protagonists and an abundance of appealing secondary characters, especially an adorable four-year-old and the heroine's geeky twin sister, who definitely needs her own story, add to the fun. This effervescent and heartwarming comedy will appeal to fans of Rachel Gibson and Elizabeth Bevarly." --Library Journal "Perfect Together is the perfect recipe for an entertaining and satisfying romantic read. I'm hastily jotting down this author's backlist for my next trip to the bookstore, because this one was so delightful." --The Romance Reader's Connection "Lisa Plumley scores another big winner with Perfect Together. An ensemble of fabulous characters, smart and often very funny dialogue, fine pacing and some great comedic scenes is an expert combination that will often have you laughing out loud and smiling long after you turn the last page." --Bookloons "Plumley is becoming a master at blending silly and poignant. She hits all the marks with 'Perfect Together!'"--The Oakland Press newspaper "I enjoyed this book from beginning to end!" -- Romance and Friends "Lisa Plumley creates charming characters. Her books are a delight!" -- USA Today best-selling author Rachel Gibson "Lisa Plumley is a comedic buried treasure! Screwball comedy with sizzle, Perfect Together blends laugh-out-loud antics and touching romance." --Romantic Times BOOKclub "Perfect Together is a perfectly spontaneous, perfectly fun fish-out-of-water splash!" -- Stephanie Bond, author of I Think I Love You

If you like reading about family, fights, sex, mystery, surprise, gossip, jealousy, excitement, suspense, pain, joy, sadness, death, life, love, hate, wealth, and poverty, you will love The Maid of Honor. This book is about the relationship between two sisters, Willie Mae and her younger sister Angie. Both girls have grown up in the lap of luxury, but that is all they have in common. Angie is spoiled rotten and takes full advantage of her status in life. She loves to spend money, and her attitude toward those that have less than she is, is blatant. She feels that she is better than almost everyone (including her sister). She is in a relationship with Darryl Jenkins, the son of a famous wealthy Holy Ghost–filled minister from the ATL. Willie Mae grew up in the same household, but these two girls are as different as day and night. Willie Mae works in a bank, and she loves her life of living a quiet life at home with her parents and leading the church youth. Not having a man in her life bothers her, but she realizes that the old saying "there is someone for everyone" is not necessarily true, and she is happy with the life she has made for herself. Being a daddy's girl is enough for her—well, it was until Angie came home after an evening with Darryl excited that she was now engaged. This announcement alone sent Willie Mae's life into a panic and everyone around her into a state of confusion. Describing this book, many words come to mind, superbly crafted, generous hearted, evil temptation, a delicious love story, engaging and memorable. When you read this book, you will experience many emotions. I promise you, you will laugh, cry, yell, curse, and you will relate differently to each character. The Maid of Honor is a book that will make you happy that you took the time to get to know the story of Willie Mae and Angie Johnson.
