When people hear "the Cloud," they think of cloud computing, just a sliver of what the Cloud is today. The Cloud has grown: it represents the consummate disruptor to structure; a pervasive social and economic network that will soon connect and define more of the world than any other political, social, or economic organization. The Cloud is the first megatrend of the twenty-first century, one that will shape the way we will address virtually every challenge we face for at least the next 100 years. It is where we will all live, work, and play in the coming decades. The Cloud is ?where your kids go to dive into online play. It's where you meet and make friends in social networks. It's where companies find the next big idea. It's where political campaigns are won and lost. Cloud Surfing is the groundbreaking book that will explain how to access the full value of the Cloud and how to embrace its possibilities.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * “A CLASSIC OF WAR REPORTING…THERE IS NO DOWNTIME IN THIS RELENTLESS BOOK.”—The New York Times * “REMARKABLE…A MEMORIAL IN PAGES.”—The Washington Post * “GRIPPING AND THOUGHT-PROVOKING.”—USA Today * “EVOCATIVE.”—Publishers Weekly, (Starred Review) * “IT JOINS THE BEST WAR LITERATURE THIS COUNTRY HAS EVER PRODUCED.”—Sebastian Junger, bestselling author of Tribe and War Pulitzer Prize winner C.J. Chivers’s unvarnished New York Times bestseller is a chronicle of modern combat, told through the eyes of the fighters who have waged America’s longest wars: “A classic of war reporting…there is no downtime in this relentless book” (The New York Times). More than 2.7 million Americans have served in Afghanistan or Iraq since September 11, 2001, and C.J. Chivers reported on both wars from their beginnings. The Fighters vividly conveys the physical and emotional experience of war as lived by six combatants: a fighter pilot, a corpsman, a scout helicopter pilot, a grunt, an infantry officer, and a Special Forces sergeant. Chivers captures their courage, commitment, sense of purpose, and ultimately their suffering, frustration, and moral confusion as new enemies arise and invasions give way to counterinsurgency duties for which American forces were often not prepared. The Fighters is a “gripping, unforgettable” (The Boston Globe) portrait of modern warfare. Told with the empathy and understanding of an author who is himself an infantry veteran, The Fighters is “a masterful work of atmospheric reporting, and it’s a book that will have every reader asking—with varying degrees of urgency or anger or despair—the final question Chivers himself asks: ‘How many lives had these wars wrecked?’” (Christian Science Monitor).

And when he's sent down from the heavenly offices above to sort out the love lives of the citizens of Gorb, a small town in the West of Ireland, he thinks he's got an easy billet - okay, he's not sure how he's going to drink all the cups of tea when he can't ingest, and maybe it's not as glamorous as Paris, but his job should still be a doddle. The complex lives of the people of Gorb are many fold: there's Mary, still a virgin, not bitter, but depserate to taste the real thing; Sandra, a Northern lap dancer, ready to give up all the grinding and bumping for life back in her roots; Moses, all flicked-back mullet and continually unloved, and Rose, once a true Irish beauty, and now a long suffering wife. And there are plenty more . . . .It is up to Christian - with a little help from his friends - to gild his arrow and point them at the hearts of those who need him most, but just how true is his aim?

If golf is the new football, then surfing must be the new golf. People are flocking to the sport in record numbers, often defying the unforgiving British climate to make the best of what can be some world-class waves.

In SURF NATION: IN SEARCH OF THE FAST LEFTS AND HOLLOW RIGHTS OF BRITAIN AND IRELAND, Alex Wade takes the pulse of these islands' surfing credentials, and finds a growing army of devotees as well as some stunning locations. A witty and engaging mix of travelogue, reportage and guide to where to find the best breaks, SURF NATION reveals Britain and Ireland to be not just a growing hotbed of surfers but a surf destination of real credibility.

APPEARING LIVE AT THE FINAL TEST is an intense hybrid of contemporary real-world drama and mythic science fiction about a black newsstand operator, his wife and three neighbors in a Brooklyn-like neighborhood, whose lives take a cosmic punch from a nuclear bomb threat that launches them on an eerie and spellbinding journey. "APPEARING LIVE AT THE FINAL TEST is an extremely well-written novel--a pleasure to read, a wild ride of depression at some points, exhilaration at others. John Teton has raised some serious concerns regarding the fate of civilizations, and our consciousness is raised with this thought-provoking work." Eric Chaisson, Author, COSMIC EVOLUTION Professor of Astronomy and Physics, Tufts University Director, Wright Center for Science Education "APPEARING LIVE AT THE FINAL TEST is a genre-breaking story unlike any other. Its scenes range from a scarily realistic depiction of an urban nuclear event to mind-stretching intergalactic travel,;all related in the author's savvy, wisecracking, original and sometimes hilarious hyperbolic voice." Craig A. Lambert, Ph.D.; Deputy Editor, HARVARD MAGAZINE Mr. Teton gives fictionalized treatment to "cosmic evolution," a complex and controversial theory which holds that evolution affects not just life on Earth, but extends back to the birth of the universe and continues to include changes in human civilization, culture, technology and beyond. The story benefits from a grounding in everyday human fears and troubles, along with mind-blowing scenes which venture into questions about creation and the role of human beings in it. The novel is chock-full of information about stars and the planets, and yet he clearly knows a thing or two about teenagers, old folks, sailing, marine biology, marriage, love, pop culture, terrorism, religious extremists and the media.

When a renegade East Coast bowling team moves into the sunshine state, the bowling buddies discover the ultimate weapon in their war against political correctness. They learn the secret of a dangerous new chemical that dissolves wood into piles of sawdust. They use it to inflict profound social change on bewildered Californians. In this whimsical and demented story from exciting new satirist Barbara Jones, nothing is sacred, and California's only hope to restore its imbalance lies in a band of beleaguered exile attorneys whose laws don't work anymore. In Moonlight Bowl Manifesto, self-appointed ligno-terrorists strike at the very heartwood of what makes California so weird. The 'Easters' decree: no more face-lifts, no more breast enhancement, and no more bottled designer water. Bowling shirts are the new dress code, and drug abuse is a thing of the past. Stand at ringside as Barbara Jones takes a tongue-in-chic swing at California's absurdly square jaw with her wry humor and dry Georgia wit. Will the General Sherman Tree survive? Can Californians survive behavior reengineering and learn to use bus tokens? And where is the Federal government while the Easters deal a coup de maitre to reason and politics in the west?
