"FATED . . . but I never wanted to be a teacher" has been likened to James Herriot (All Creatures Great and Small) meets Brian Glover (the P.E. Teacher in Kes) It is an HILARIOUS comic autobiography about the trials and tribulations of a young teacher who endured twenty years working in Cleveland schools. As a youngster, James Masters hadn't the slightest intention of going to university, and at eighteen had already taken out the forms to become a Physical Training Officer in the RAF. Through a number mishaps and coincidences he qualified as a teacher, but still unsure that this really was the job for him, attempted to leave on three separate occasions: - but, he kept being thrown back like a boomerang (or was that a bad penny?) The book has previously been distributed as an ebook through Amazon, where up to now it has received eleven reviews and rated 4.8 stars (one of the reviewers claiming that the grammar wasn't very good!) The Author agrees! - but it was never intended to rival Dickens or Shakespeare, just to be funny and easy to read. I think it more than achieves these objectives!!! This is what some of the other readers say: - Michael B: - "An interesting account of a young teacher in 70's / 80's North East England. . . it's an easy read and once I'd dipped into it simply had to read from cover to cover. Go James, look forward to the next!" Sue C: - " A master piece, . . . written up so well......giggling from start to finish....absolutely the best [money] I've spent in a long time..." Axel: - "Cracking entertainment. Brought me right back to my school days. Mind you........... I did go to one of the schools featured in the book!!" John P: - "An entertaining journey! A very warming, funny, and thought-provoking read. Brought back fond memories . . . Looking forward to reading more." W. Lidster: - "A Must Read. A fun & compelling read, that all former pupils of "Hawksmount" School ought to read!!! It's understandable, but a shame, that names had to be changed lol!!!" Karen T: - "Loved reading this book. Brought back loads of memories....Good times" And finally, John R: - You should most certainly think about a follow up to your book. . . . Clever writing it gripped me. . . . I laughed, I cried. What a good read.
A stormy evening of olive and silver was closing in, as Father Brown, wrapped in a grey Scotch plaid, came to the end of a grey Scotch valley and beheld the strange castle of Glengyle. It stopped one end of the glen or hollow like a blind alley; and it looked like the end of the world. Rising in steep roofs and spires of seagreen slate in the manner of the old French-Scotch chateaux, it reminded an Englishman of the sinister steeple-hats of witches in fairy tales; and the pine woods that rocked round the green turrets looked, by comparison, as black as numberless flocks of ravens.
In this unforgettable chronicle of perhaps the most famous moment in American military history, James Bradley has captured the glory, the triumph, the heartbreak, and the legacy of the six men who raised the flag at Iwo Jima. Here is the true story behind the immortal photograph that has come to symbolize the courage and indomitable will of America.
"From the Hardcover edition."
In this book, the authors present the elements of a general theory for flows on three-dimensional compact boundaryless manifolds, encompassing flows with equilibria accumulated by regular orbits.
The book aims to provide a global perspective of this theory and make it easier for the reader to digest the growing literature on this subject. This is not the first book on the subject of dynamical systems, but there are distinct aspects which together make this book unique.
Firstly, this book treats mostly continuous time dynamical systems, instead of its discrete counterpart, exhaustively treated in some other texts. Secondly, this book treats all the subjects from a mathematical perspective with proofs of most of the results included. Thirdly, this book is meant to be an advanced graduate textbook and not just a reference book or monograph on the subject. This aspect is reflected in the way the cover material is presented, with careful and complete proofs, and precise references to topics in the book.
