DESCRIPTION BOOK:

In today's world of interconnected and "always-on" information, companies that succeed are those that compete by leveraging the advantage of strategic control points. A strategic control point is a part of a market where, if controlled by one party, it can be used to leverage power elsewhere. This can occur throughout the supply chain, in a related business, or even in an unrelated market. The Carrot and the Stick focuses on how points of strategic control can be leveraged in today's market environment. Using detailed examples and case studies - ranging from historic cases like Vanderbilt's railroad in New York to current cases like Amazon's control of the value chain - the book explains how finding and leveraging points of strategic control is the key to success in today's convergent, fast-paced markets. The emphasis throughout the book is on the tactical: how to spot and own potential points of strategic control, how to extend them to multiple markets, what tools and processes can be implemented in order to utilize the principle in practice, and how to "pry loose" existing points of strategic control owned by others.

"This book is amazing!" - Thomas Pridgen : "I Love it!" John - "J.R." Robinson : "Itz mad cool" - Chris Dave : "I love this book, it is great" - Gerald Heyward : "I found it really informative, useful and visually interesting." : Clayton Cameron Drummers are athletes. Playing the drums well requires the skilled use of the entire body. Unfortunately, most books on drumming focus exclusively on what notes should be played, and give little or no attention to the how they should be played. This leaves drummers with a problem. When you misunderstand technique, you will experience frustration when new techniques aren't as easy to learn as they should be, limitation in what you can do because the techniques don't work like they should, and injury when the extra wear and tear caused by bad technique builds up. The solution is simple: Anatomy of Drumming is your guide to moving well, learning faster and avoiding injury. When you understand the mechanics of moving and how they apply to the drums, you will know for yourself how techniques work, so you can use them effectively. Anatomy of Drumming is both a description of how the body works and a prescription for how to move better. Starting with the mechanics of movement, Anatomy of Drumming takes you through what you need to know about the body and how to use it effectively. It covers the basics of anatomy and the physics of drums; how to set up the drums for your body, Moeller technique, matched grip vs. traditional grip, and many other important topics. Through learning about the proper use of the body at the drum set, you will be able to learn faster, play with better facility and reduce injury.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

An excellent introduction to feedback control system design, this book offers a theoretical approach that captures the essential issues and can be applied to a wide range of practical problems. Its explorations of recent developments in the field emphasize the relationship of new procedures to classical control theory, with a focus on single input and output systems that keeps concepts accessible to students with limited backgrounds. The text is geared toward a single-semester senior course or a graduate-level class for students of electrical engineering. The opening chapters constitute a basic treatment of feedback design. Topics include a detailed formulation of the control design program, the fundamental issue of performance/stability robustness tradeoff, and the graphical design technique of loopshaping. Subsequent chapters extend the discussion of the loopshaping technique and connect it with notions of optimality. Concluding chapters examine controller design via optimization, offering a mathematical approach that is useful for multivariable systems.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

New York City Book Awards Hornblower Award Winner One of Vogue and NPR’s Best Books of the Year This beautifully written “masterclass in memoir” (Elle) recounts a young girl’s journey from war-torn Vietnam to Queens, New York, “showcas[ing] the tremendous power we have to alter the fates of others, step into their lives and shift the odds in favor of greater opportunity” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis). Ly Tran is just a toddler in 1993 when she and her family immigrate from a small town along the Mekong river in Vietnam to a two-bedroom railroad apartment in Queens. Ly’s father, a former lieutenant in the South Vietnamese army, spent nearly a decade as a POW, and their resettlement is made possible through a humanitarian program run by the US government. Soon after they arrive, Ly joins her parents and three older brothers sewing ties and cummerbunds piece-meal on their living room floor to make ends meet. As they navigate this new landscape, Ly finds herself torn between two worlds. She knows she must honor her parents’ Buddhist faith and contribute to the family livelihood, working long hours at home and eventually as a manicurist alongside her mother at a nail salon in Brooklyn that her parents take over. But at school, Ly feels the mounting pressure to blend in. A growing inability to see the blackboard presents new challenges, especially when her father forbids her from getting glasses, calling her diagnosis of poor vision a government conspiracy. His frightening temper and paranoia leave a mark on Ly’s sense of self. Who is she outside of everything her family expects of her? An “unsentimental yet deeply moving examination of filial bond, displacement, war trauma, and poverty” (NPR), House of Sticks is a timely and powerful portrait of one girl’s coming-of-age and struggle to find her voice amid clashing cultural expectations.
