Cruise Ships The Small Scale Fleet by Peter C Smith Book Summary:
Peter C. Smith presents us here with the second release in his visually splendid Cruise Ships series. Whilst his first book concerned itself with the large-scale ships currently cruising through our seas (those weighing 40,000 GT and more) this volume focusses on the other end of the market; the ships that weigh in at less than 40,000 GT, but which are often much more stylish and aesthetically pleasing than their larger-scale counterparts. The elegant interiors and luxurious features on display in today's vast fleet of cruise liners remain unrecorded in all but holiday brochures. This book carries on in the tradition of Peter's last release, giving a complete overview of the best of these ships, the cream of the crop, so to speak.??Each colour profile includes external and interior views of the featured ship. Details of the design, building and service history of each vessel are provided with vital statistics of the ship and its facilities.??This is a book of reference for maritime enthusiasts, would-be holiday cruisers and those who have been passengers. It serves as an impressive visual tribute to the best of the smaller scale fleet currently cruising globally.??As seen in the Bedford Times & Citizen.

The Survivors' Affair by Helen Menzies Book Summary:
Where were you when you heard that JFK had been shot in Dallas? Or that Elvis had died at Graceland? Or that Princess Diana's car had crashed in Paris? The Survivors' Affair revisits these iconic moments with you, these and host of the other defining public deaths of our times - among them Marilyn Monroe, Winston Churchill, Golda Meir, Greta Garbo, the Challenger space shuttle, Rudolf Nureyev, Grace Kelly, John Lennon, Jacqueline du Pre, Kim Philby, the Kursk, and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. The Survivors' Affair also takes you across the world, from Sydney Harbour to the dreaming spires of Oxford, from under the streets of Istanbul to the Paris of Edith Piaf, from London during the Blitz to Israel of the first century, from deep beneath the Barents Sea to outer space, from Hollywood to the Dead Heart of Australia, from a monastery in Crete to the Palace of Monaco. In The Survivors' Affair these journeys through time and space spark other journeys, through one person's lifetime of searching, as we all search, for answers to the puzzles of life and death.

The Borgia White Affair by Mayo R. DeLilly III Book Summary:
The embattled Kingsley administration is teetering on the edge of political ruin; fighting and losing an unwinnable war against drugs, and facing a tough re-election campaign. In order to save his Presidency, Operation Borgia White is spawned to stem the tide of the drug scourge enveloping America. Sporadic and untimely cocaine deaths sweep across the country. The Government attempts to reassure an anxious populace and sway public opinion toward more stringent measures the Administration has planned to eradicate the drug problem once and for all. Dr. Lester Phillips, a Washington, DC Pediatrician, has seen the first telltale signs of the plot; the seizures, the cardiac and respiratory arrest, the lightning fast death. With the help of his colleague, pathologist Ray Rafferty, they slowly begin to assemble and put together clues, aided by a disgruntled Justice Department official. As Lester and Ray continue to pursue the truth, dark forces within the Administration unleash attacks against the men, their families, and their reputations. After Ray is attacked and presumed dead or missing, Lester must fight alone until he is unjustly accused of crimes against the state and arrested. During his captivity, he comes face to face with the mastermind of the intricate operation. As the plot finally unfolds, Lester realizes that the deaths of thousands of people have been collateral damage, and something far more sinister is planned. Lester is able to escape his captors, but is injured. He must make his way back to Washington, DC and warn the targets of the plot before it is too late. In the balance is the fate of American way of life as we know it.
The Capable Cruiser by Lin and Larry Pardey Book Summary:
Lin and Larry Pardey have now been cruising on board their own boats, racing, delivering, and repairing other people’s boats for more than 44 years. After west-to-east and east-to-west circumnavigations, and voyages to more than 75 countries, they have a breadth of knowledge that few other boating authors possess. Most of the voyaging has been done on an earn-as-you-go budget that could be well within the reach of the majority of those whose dream is to set sail. Their motto? “Go small, go simple, but go now!” The Pardeys’ strengths are neatly symbolized by the boats they have built. Each one is romantically traditional, with swooping sheerlines, and is completely dependent on the wind. And yet each boat carries the best, strongest, and most seamanlike gear. Like their vessels, the Pardeys’ writings are founded on a marriage of the spirit of romantic adventure and the practical, up-to-date seamanship that keeps them and their boats safe. This revised and expanded third edition of a cruising classic includes 10 completely new chapters with such advice as: sixteen ways to encourage your lover (partner) to share your dream; strategies for turning sudden engine failure into a minor incident; choosing safety equipment; repairing rigging at sea. All of the original chapters have been updated to ensure that the information will be helpful for everyone who dreams of cruising—whether now or soon. The Capable Cruiser is a logical extension of the Pardeys’ The Self-Sufficient Sailor, with more emphasis on seamanship underway, including careful analysis of extreme anchoring situations and solutions for mitigating them. Underlying each and every chapter is the warmth and encouragement that spurred Herb McCormick, former editor of Cruising World magazine, to label Lin and Larry Pardey “the enablers.”
