The truth is this. Riding a motorcycle well is part skill, part willing to learn, part understanding of basic physics, and part giving a damn about your safety and the safety of those around you.You don't have to know everything about motorcycles to ride well. On the other hand, there are topics that every rider should understand in order to control their motorcycle effectively and REDUCE THEIR CHANCES OF CRASHING.This book addresses those topics.Can you reduce your risk to zero? No. Skilled riders crash and die every day when there was NOTHING they could have done to avoid it. But it is also true that under-skilled riders crash and die every day when there WAS something they could have done to avoid it. Motorcycle safety is a choice.This book isn't just for riders starting out. This is the book I would hand to someone who's been riding for decades and wants to reduce their risk of crashing. This is the book I would give my son if he told me he wanted to learn how to ride a motorcycle.Mastering the art of riding a motorcycle well is about understanding and overcoming rider fear. It's about having the head knowledge of how your motorcycle works so you can make it go where you want it to go. It's about understanding why riders crash so you can avoid making the same mistakes. It's about taking ownership of your riding safety.Whether you've been riding for decades or are just starting out, if you're serious about mastering the art of riding well, this book is for you.If I didn't think I could measurably reduce my chances of being in a crash, I wouldn't ride. I believe you can reduce your chances too. - David Mixson

Wall Street legend and bestselling author Jim Rogers offers investing insights and economic, political, and social analysis, drawing on lessons and observations from his lifetime in the markets. Jim Rogers, whose entertaining accounts of his travels around the world--studying the markets from Russia to Singapore from the ground up--has enthralled readers, investors and Wall Street aficionados for decades. In his engaging memoir Street Smarts, Rogers offers pithy commentary from a lifetime of adventure, from his early years growing up a naïve kid in Demopolis, Alabama, to his fledgling career on Wall Street, to his cofounding of the wildly successful Quantum Fund. In Street Smarts, Rogers takes us through the highlights of his life in the financial markets, from his school days at Yale and Oxford--where despite the fact that he didn’t have enough money to afford the appropriate pair of shoes, he coxed the crew and helped to win the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race as well as the Thames Cup, the first of his three Guiness World Records--to his first heady taste of Wall Street in the mid-1960s, and his years helping to run the most successful hedge fund on Wall Street. In the course of his new book, Rogers offers often surprising observations on how the world works–-and what trends he sees in the future. The age of Wall Street, Rogers claims, when the finance industry drove 25% of America’s growth, is over. Tomorrow’s economy will be driven by those who make things--food, energy, goods and consumables. He explains why Asia will be the dominant economic force in the twenty-first century, and discusses why America and the European Union are in decline, and what we need to do to right our economy and society.

Are you ready for 3 heart-wrenching, panty-melting alpha bad boy bikers who will move heaven and earth to claim the women they have fallen head-over-handlebars for? Wild Heat contains 3 of Portia Bright’s steamy, sexy MC romance novels: Wild: Devil’s Love, Heat: Dark Love, and Ruin: Wicked Love. Follow along with 3 couples as they find their happily-ever-afters in these full-length motorcycle club romances with NO CLIFFHANGERS. Filled to the brim with passion, these sexy ink-and-leather men are guaranteed to make you reach for a glass of ice-cold water. * Wild Heat: Devil’s Love Emily knows she's seen more terrible things than the average person. That goes part and parcel with being the daughter of the head of a biker gang. The Devils MC... the baddest guys in town. And a life she wants nothing to do with. But when her father insists she marries one of the gang, she's beside herself. She absolutely will not, even if it's for her own protection. Even if the man he's chosen, Kyle, is a man too gorgeous it's unfair. A man with eyes that bore into her soul... that see right through her. A man who licks his lips when he sees her, like she's his prey. No... she won't participate in a sham marriage. No fake relationship. Not even for one amazing, white-hot night. * Heat: Dark Love Valerie never thought she'd become the obsession of a bad biker. He's all sex and leather, sweat and steel. Tattoos cover his toned, hard body, and the way he looks at her makes heat bloom in her center. But she knows he's bad news. He's not the kind of man you take home to momma. But the alpha biker is relentless, and she soon finds herself caught in his orbit... ...and she soon finds herself making a mistake. He claimed her over and over again, made her scream and moan and see white-hot ecstasy. But it can never happen again. It was a mistake. Just one time. But what Valerie doesn't know is that he has a plan for her. One that involves putting his brand on her. One that involves putting his ring on her. * Ruin: Wicked Love She’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. I fall into her eyes. The sound of her voice gets me right in the center… Where the emptiness lives. She hired me to protect her. But I want to do more than that. I want to make her my own. I want her tangled in the bedsheets. I want to make her scream. But more than that, I want her beside me. With me. She makes me feel whole. She makes me… happy. But she’s afraid to let me in. She thinks I'll hurt her. I'll never hurt her. I'll beat away her problems. I’ll kiss away her tears. I'll make her mine forever. *

INTELLIGENCE Call It SMARTS Update Yourself - Step by Step Many individuals are aware there are cracks and moral challenges, or worse, in American society. These persons do not require convincing; they see it. They know American culture has declined, possibly nearing moral and financial self-destruction. There are obvious reasons behind this state of the nations wellbeing. A distinct path is available that can lead towards a desirable resolution. The current down reality is entangled with education, moral decay, and a torrent of changes driven by technology. Professor Zenners book sets forth an easy, painless process, step-by-step, building and supplementing the store of ideas, facts, and intelligence, call it Smarts, that the reader already possesses. Step after step, more lights will flicker on, not indoctrination, but the exact opposite, a freeing of the individuals thinking processes. Each new step builds on the last so that the ideas and information naturally integrate into the readers repertoire of reasoning abilities and intelligence. The final steps are designed to leave the individual with personal free will, choice, a moral compass, and perhaps wisdom. A society equipped with open minds, and when broadly educated, has the chance to evaluate the American political scene, its origins, current status, and its desired future. The book is not a panacea, rather it is a sequenced, rational process of ideas and information that all of society would do well to examine. It will provide an excursion into new worlds for many, fresh perspectives for others, and an enriched life for most. The time to start this journey is now, mid-2012, least the nation wander too close to the edge, too close to a point of no return. That point of no return could be November 6, 2012. Individuals are not that far out of touch, they need only a review of some things they may have forgotten, or perhaps things they never understood or knew. The narrative surveys the nature of the universe, of human origins and endeavors, learning abilities and techniques, math and argumentation, education, decision making, even philosophy and cosmology. Personal behaviors are also examined, from the individual right on up to the crowned heads of society in the United States. Today, people have all kinds of questions. Where has the Future gone? Is the Climate Changing? Is the Earth Overcrowded? Is there even one Honest Politician? Does God actually exist? Is Mankind part of Mother Nature? How do you open a Closed Mind? How do people Learn? Where did the Universe come from? How did Life arise? How do humans Reason? What is the concept of Argumentation? What is meant by Real? How can Education be improved? What about Good and Evil? How much should you believe that emanates from the mouth of a Pathological Liar? Who will answer such questions? It may have to be individuals who have free and open minds, capable of independent thought. It will be people like you. Professor Zenner shows that most of these questions have reasonable answers, some with certainty, and others with mere speculation. The writing provides basic tools for both inadequately and for highly educated persons to develop and judge their own answers. People who comprehend the human function of cognition are better able to understand themselves and the world which we all share. Many people would like to be able to better reason and judge the accuracy of answers to the myriads of pertinent questions of our times. They want to believe in a better future. And you are one of those persons. A PREVIEW So Mr. Zenner, from the title of your book, you must realize that I already know a lot. No matter, you seem to think I need more smarts? And step by step, you will point the way; theyll be mine for the taking? Thats right! Not just you, probably most persons in every society, especially at this particular time in America, you and all people need
