<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><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 />
