Clint Eastwood is one of the world's most popular action stars, who has matured into a fine American producer-director. Entertaining, illuminating and packed with information, up to and including "The Changeling", this is the first book to cover his full life in the movies, from his beginnings in 1950s B-movies and in TV's "Rawhide" to "Gran Torino" showing how as both actor and filmmaker Eastwood aims for the heart of the drama, whatever the story. Howard Hughes follows Eastwood's craft through over 50 movies. He looks at his launch into superstardom in Sergio Leone's 1960s spaghetti westerns. Back in America, he built on his success as western hero with such films as "High Plains Drifter" and "The Outlaw Josey Wales", winning an Oscar for "Unforgiven" in 1992. He blasted his way through the seventies and eighties as Inspector Harry Francis Callahan, the last hope for law enforcement in San Francisco. He also monkeyed around in two phenomenally popular films with Clyde the orang-utan, which brought tough-guy Eastwood to a whole new audience and made him the biggest box office star of his generation. "Aim for the Heart" also looks at Eastwood's more unusual roles, including "The Beguiled", "The Bridges of Madison County" and "Million Dollar Baby". Since 1970, he has enjoyed parallel success as director-producer of his own Malpaso Productions, with "Bird", "Mystic River" and "Letters from Iwo Jima", demonstrating formidable directing credentials. "Aim for the Heart" covers all Eastwood's movies of many genres in detail, and Eastwood's story is illustrated with film stills, glimpses behind the scenes, and rare poster advertising material. "Aim for the Heart" also includes the most comprehensive credits filmography has ever compiled on Eastwood's work, as star and director.

In the US Armys, Field Manual of Electronic Warfare in Operations (FM 3-36), it states that: Hardware is described as Computers, Relay Stations, Circuits, Radios, Scanners and other things of their ilk. Software is described as the Programs used to Direct the Operations of the Hardware, to function within a command control system. Wetware is described as the Personnel that operate or maintain the Command Control System. It doesnt say why the Pentagon gave Wetware the name it is. I can only use my imagination and assume that Wetware is what happens when People have Anti-Radiation Missiles shot at them. The other fact is that the Human Body is 98 % water. Only the Pentagon could coin a phrase with such an innocent content but has such devastating effect. In Todays Internet Based Environment it rings with a larger intent. It also assumes that Hardware is easier to replace then Wetware. It is also along this same vein, that Roxanne of Dark Energy has been constructed.

"It's nice to have someone with your…um, skill set…around when there's a killer on the loose." Taking out bad guys is in Jake Connelly's DNA as much as strength, fearlessness and Greek-god good looks. So is rescuing women like Chelsea Harris, who's kidnapped by a brutal escaped convict. What isn't in the cowboy hunk's DNA, Chelsea fears, is an interest in relationships—especially with a jilted size-fourteen plain Jane like herself. With the killer on the loose and a Texas-size blizzard raging, Jake and Chelsea take refuge in an icy farmhouse. Sudden sparks between them turn on plenty of heat! But Jake has sworn to put his black ops career before distracting emotions. He needs to stay focused to stop the convict's reign of terror…and protect Chelsea from the danger of falling for him….

In the past five years, the techniques used in arthroscopic shoulder surgery have advanced exponentially. The basic principles are the same, but the theories, techniques, and instrumentation have dramatically improved. The Cowboy's Companion: A Trail Guide for the Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgeon is truly a companion book to Burkhart’s View of the Shoulder: A Cowboy's Guide to Advanced Shoulder Arthroscopy, which builds on the principles of the first book and concentrates on the new theories and techniques that have developed since the first book was written. The book is separated into two sections: The Shoulder Roundup, which will be an update on the techniques and ideas that have developed in shoulder surgery and The Shoulder Rodeo, which will be a collection of challenging cases that demonstrate unique approaches to difficult shoulder problems. The text comes with two DVDs that feature advanced interactive technology. The surgical videos will be supplemented with state-of-the-art digitally enhanced illustrations and animations, to create an entirely new 3-dimensional learning environment for the surgeon.

It starts as a mission to honor a fallen comrade. It becomes a mission for justice. On a personal journey to return an heirloom to the father of his former colleague and lover, Jim Grant isn’t sure what to expect in the dusty flatlands of Texas. He isn’t expecting trouble from the local cowboys, but trouble is what he gets. With instincts honed from years as a covert operator, Grant is a small town’s last hope against an army of good old boys and a violent kingpin who has everything to lose. And if he manages to keep his boots above ground he may just be able to lay to rest the memory of a soldier who died too soon. Praise for the books by Colin Campbell: “Very real. And very good.” —Lee Child The Resurrection Man Series “A cop with a sharp eye, keen mind, and a lion’s heart.” —Reed Farrel Coleman “Campbell writes smart, rollercoaster tales with unstoppable forward momentum and thrilling authenticity. The Resurrection Man series is a blast.” —Nick Petrie “Grim and gritty and packed with action and crackling dialogue.” —Kirkus Review, for Jamaica Plain “Action packed. Tough-as-nails. The pages fly like the bullets, fistfights and one-liners that make this one of my favourite books of the year. Top stuff!” —Matt Hilton “Campbell’s wry maverick Grant never fails to entertain.” —Kirkus Review, for Montecito Heights “Sets up immediately and maintains a breakneck pace throughout. Its smart structure and unrelenting suspense will please Lee Child fans.” —Library Journal Review “Harkens back to the gritty action series of the 70s and 80s, with a stylish noir voice.” —Kirkus Reviews, for Adobe Flats “Crackerjack entertainment: taut, gritty and full of devilish twists.” —Kirkus Reviews, for Snake Pass “Hard-hitting action and Grant’s dry wit make this a rollicking good time.” —Library Journal Review “Campbell’s Beacon Hill is a great tale of violence and intrigue, stretching across the Atlantic and back again. In it, Jim Grant proves he is the real deal.” —Reed Farrel Coleman The UK Crime Novels “This is police procedural close-up and personal. A strong debut with enough gritty realism to make your eyes water, and a few savage laughs along the way.” —Reginald Hill, for Through the Ruins of Midnight “An excellent story well told. A mixture of The Choirboys meets Harry Bosch.” —Michael Jecks “Campbell’s 30 years as a Yorkshire policeman infuse this unusual procedural with grim reality and the harsh humor that helps keep the coppers sane.” —Kirkus Review, for Blue Knight White Cross “Every detail feels authentic, and Campbell’s dark, muscular prose suggests the best pulp writers of the ’50s.” —Kirkus Review, for Northern Ex
