Sign up for LibraryThing to find out whether you'll like this book. Member reviews, this book is written by the grandson of waitstill and Martha Sharp, Artemis joukowsky. He started with the stories told to him, then searched for documents so that he could tell the full story of the remarkable journeys they made to rescue people from the nazi regime. Although they had backing from their church and othr humanitarian groups, it ais their determination, "the importance of finding the joy in serving others" that inspired them to "do with their lives what is important". They were American who would not wait on the government to get involved - they left their children, home and country to fight he evil that they could see and save all those that they could. In these times of 24 hour news, this story is a reminder to do the right thing, recognize evil and work together to save those who we can reach - and that reach may be in the neighborhood or around the globe. I look forward to seeing the video and would remind the reader that the preface is well worth the time to read. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I'm sorry to be be delayed in writing this story, but my husband was in chemo for cancer for an extended period before his death.

The Trademark Infringement: the guy also shows up in the comments thread following that notice to continue the craziness. For a raving lunatic he is representative quite a nice person. I probably don't have to say this but: Authors, don't be this guy. First, don't file frivolous nonsensical lawsuits but most importantly don't threaten book resume bloggers. One threat sent to one blog and everyone is going to know about. The book community is large but juicy stories like this will spread fast. In the past i've pointed to the.
Lendink lynch mob as an example of how not to react to piracy, and one of my recommendations was to figure out who to ask for advice. . i've already pointed out a couple law blogs, so let me add a third source. Dear Author is a book review blog run by a lawyer, jane litte. In addition to the book reviews each week she posts on a legal topic relevant to authors.

Wild is claiming that one recent hc title, carnival of souls by melissa marr, infringes upon his trademark. Not copyright - trademark. Wild is claiming that HarperCollins is using the trademarked phrase as the title of a book to intentionally confuse readers into thinking that a fantasy novel which was published last week was related to a comics series which Wild had published in 2006. Any sane person would have put a few minutes thought into the matter and realized that such an obvious phrase as Carnival of souls would likely have been used as a title many times before. In fact, bookfinder turned up at least a couple dozen different books, movies, tv episodes, and more - some of which dates back to 1962. And if you look inside books, google says that it found the phrase no less than 5600 times (with some duplication, obviously).
But that's not the end of the craziness. No, it's with the book reviewers that the crazy truly begins. Wild is now sending cease and desist letters to any book reviewer who has mentioned or posted an excerpt from the new novel. He's accusing them of trademark infringement. The bookalicious blog posted a copy of an email they got from Wild today. This blog posted a review of the new novel, not an excerpt, and Wild is freaking out over the fact that they mention the title of the book: to whom it may concern, This is a cease and desist. Carnival Of souls is a trademark owned by jazan Wild and Wild alone has the exclusive right on the United States of America to use the mark in classes 16 and 41 of which a novel is included. Posting a chapter from a novel using this mark is a willful and malicious infringement of Wilds mark.

For teachers in need of new material, chapter 2 has 14 problems, some with illustrations, that are answered in chapter. These are difficult problems, very well explained, and some guidance on solution methods is provided Start with step 2-3 of ariz." " Try this one without the contradictions Matrix. Altshullers thinking on a wide variety of subjects is presented. Readers might want to select individual essays for study at different times, rather than read the whole work cover-to-cover. For example, the sections on overcoming the barriers to creative thought are in several different chapters, and can be read together or separately. Section 2-6, "Patented in the paleozoic Era" has a collection of observations of evolution of inventions in biological evolution that could be enjoyed on its own, or used as a prototype for developing teaching methods. Supplementary material was added plan to this translation: An interview with Altshuller in the summer of 1998 (Altshuller died in September, 1998.).
recent work is available. (see, for example, step-by-Step triz reviewed in June, 1997, or, tools of Classical triz, reviewed in this issue.) The comparison of the versions of ariz-61 and ariz-71 presented here with each other and with ari-85c and some of the later versions of ariz will. The introduction to the section on the contradiction matrix and the 40 principles has some useful notes on how the research was done. Book reviewers typically make comments such as "a longer explanation would be useful in future editions" since the author is deceased and the book is 26 years old, this is an empty wish, unless some of Altshullers associates take up the challenge to write. Certainly, thanks to the early translation. And Suddenly the Inventor Appeared, the contradiction matrix and the40 principles are among the best known and most used tools of triz, and knowing more about the history and development of the concepts would help many users. The descriptions of the principles are very good, and the examples are chosen from a wide range of technologies, and include Altshullers note warning: "Let the reader not be confused by small and funny ideas that support some principles. Whats most important is their essence." he also suggests that the list be refreshed frequently from both leading edge development and the patent literature.
And Suddenly the Inventor Appeared, and the compilation of essay class notes published as 40 Principles. Lev shulyak and Steven Rodman have done an elegant translation, capturing the tone of the original, as well as the content. (I rely on friends more fluent in Russian than I for this opinion!). The Innovation Algorithm is not a textbook. It might be viewed best as a collection of essays on invention and creativity. Altshullers exploratory style of discovery is clearly illustrated, since he first introduces an idea, summarizes its history, shows whats gone wrong in trying to apply the idea, then introduces a more systematic approach, or an approach without the logical defects of the original approach, and. Each method is illustrated with a mix of charming stories and technical case studies. The first section of the book deals extensively with methods and non-methods of invention that existed prior to the development of triz, and Altshullers views on their deficiencies.
