"A readable and concise overview of how U.S. transportation came to its present pass. . . . Goddard is at his best when recounting the complex and interesting history of what has come to be called 'the highway lobby.'. . . An excellent book for the general reader with an interest in getting around."—Larry Fish, Philadelphia Inquirer "This is a riveting story: of mighty railroads hamstrung almost overnight by government bureaucrats; of road interests led by General Motors Corp. conspiring in city after city to destroy efficient trolley systems . . . and of freeways that are far from free."—Bill Laitner, Detroit Free Press "The combination of forces and fates that turned America into a giant parking lot from sea to shining sea is the subject of Stephen B. Goddard's lively pop history. . . . As Mr. Goddard ably points out, road-building and the creation of car-dependent suburbs have become ends in themselves."—James Howard Kunstler, Wall Street Journal "The strength of Goddard's book is that he understands the complexities of manipulating public opinion to influence legislatures."—David Young, Chicago Tribune "[Goddard's] book is a deft and easily read history of how transportation has shaped the nation and its economy, and ultimately, how a federation of truck and car interests drastically tilted national policies. . . . For many reasons this is an exceptionally important work."—Jim Dwyer, New York Newsday

There was military project management. There was construction project management. Then there was business project management, a tool described as 'the wave of the future'. Where are architects in all this, professionals whose work has always been project-driven? There is design management in engineering, product design, graphics, packaging, management theory and even in politics. Construction consultants talk about managing design. When are architects going to become committed to managing design? Getting There by Design adopts an architect's view to design and project management. It sets out the fundamental principles and shows how they are applied, dealing with these two topics as one indivisible subject. 'Getting There by Design' demonstrates how to: - make project efforts goal-oriented - set up a planning and monitoring basis to architectural projects - put the architect's fee calculus on a rationale basis - diagnose your firm's practice culture - develop successful teams Put your practice onto a more effective basis. Ken Allinson is an architect in private practice and principal of 'Architectural Dialogue'. He also teaches design studio and lectures on design and project management. He was formerly an associate at DEGW London and the Terry Farrell Partnership. He has practice experience in Europe, the USA and Japan and is the author of 'The Wild Card of Design' (1993).

The book touches several genres (inspirational, self-improvement, handicapped, health and fitness, social sciences, philosophy, family, mind, body, and soul) in a combined unique manner and accurately highlights each that is naturally intertwined in this autobiography and anyone's life. This book goes beyond age, gender, social, cultural boundaries, and even time to make it applicable to any human. This autobiography's events were typed and recorded vocally by me, the author, as I regained the physical capabilities. These are all true experiences by me, the author, that were encountered along my journey. The story illustrates the similarities of two worlds that some people think are completely different; one being better than the other. The experiences are presented in such a form to make it relative to any reader. This autobiography was written in the style and format that creatively gives the reader the truthful experience in order. Many people want to be at the top, but how many have and can give perspectives from both top and bottom. All emotions are met when reading this book and it is much more than a life story. It is The story within the life becoming the life within the story!

Birmingham shares the lessons he has learned, providing readers with hope as they face their own obstacles.

This autobiography by Doctor Lloyd Duncan, a semi-retired surgeon in Tennessee, covers the period of time from his birth in 1931 to the present. The book is replete with accounts of the depression era, the pre WW ll and WW ll years, and high school triumphs and disappointments. Immature, broke, emaciated and homesick at Yale University, he nevertheless earned his letters swimming on some of the school’s greatest teams. He graduated from Yale in 1953 and from medical school in 1956. He vividly describes many humorous, dramatic or tragic events that he subsequently witnessed or experienced as a physician, Naval Flight Surgeon, practicing surgeon, husband, father and grandfather.
