I read almost continuously, and for the past year and a half, I haven't read a series (or even one) book that I've loved as much. With such loyal characters, friendship, and badassery... just don't wait to start reading these. So just, just wow." **Please note, as mentioned in a review, there is flagrantly foul language in these novels. The main character does not have a problem with cussing, just uninspired cussing.

A resource for fans of The Kurtherian Gambit. End of the world as we know it. Plausible. Scary in its simplicity. Horrible in its effect. Set in the Kurtherian Gambit Universe, this story explains how a few mistakes can have grave consequences. Unfortunately, the technology in the following short story is real. Yes, this could happen. Dammit. Who wants to really dwell on these things? This story was written by Craig Martelle, based on the original WWDE Document as authored by Jeff Morris. You get both in this one short story which gives you insight into how a fiction author takes a technical document and makes a story out of it. Otherwise, I would label this, "Crap, I don't want to ever, ever, ever think about."

Quantitative, Qualitative, Mixed Methods, Arts-Based, and Community-Based Participatory Research Approaches
Author: Patricia Leavy
Publisher: Guilford Publications
This user-friendly book provides a step-by-step guide to using the five major approaches to research design: quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, arts-based, and community-based participatory research. Chapters on each approach follow a unique format--they present a template for a research proposal and explain in detail how to conceptualize and fill in every section. Terminology commonly used within each approach is identified, and key moments of ethical decision making are flagged. Interdisciplinary research examples draw on current events and social justice topics. Unique coverage includes hot topics: replication studies and data sharing, tailoring proposals to different audiences, and more. The book also includes a general introduction to social research; an in-depth, practical discussion of ethics; and a chapter on how to begin a research study, from planning a topic to developing a research question via a literature review. Pedagogical Features *Multiple "Review Stops" in each chapter--quick quizzes with answer keys. *End-of-chapter writing exercises, research activities, and suggested resources. *Bold-face key terms and an end-of-book glossary. *Boxed tips from experts in the respective approaches. *Supplemental PowerPoint slides for instructors using the book in a class.
