Christopher Vogler made documentary films as an Air Force officer before studying film production at the University of Southern California, where he encountered the ideas of mythologist Joseph Campbell and observed how they influenced the story design of 1977 s Star Wars. He worked as a story consultant in the development departments of 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Pictures and Animation, and Paramount Pictures, and wrote an influential memo on Campbell s Hero s Journey concept that led to his involvement in Disney s Aladdin, The Lion King, and Hercules. After the publication of The Writer s Journey, he developed stories for many productions, including Disney s remake of 101 Dalmatians, Fox s Fight Club, Courage Under Fire, Volcano, and The Thin Red Line.

This book is about 100-baggers. These are stocks that return $100 for every $1 invested. That means a $10,000 investment turns into $1 million. Chris Mayer can help you find them. It sounds like an outrageous quest with a wildly improbable chance of success. But when Mayer studied 100-baggers of the past, definite patterns emerged. In 100-Baggers, you will learn the key characteristics of 100-baggers why anybody can do this. It is truly an everyman s approach. You don t need an MBA or a finance degree. Some basic financial concepts are all you need a number of crutches or techniques that can help you get more out of your stocks and investing. The emphasis is always on the practical, so there are many stories and anecdotes to help illustrate important points. You should read this book if you want to get more out of your stocks. Even if you never get a 100-bagger, this book will help you turn up big winners and keep you away from losers and sleepy stocks that go nowhere. After reading 100-Baggers, you will never look at investing the same way again. It will energize and excite you about what s possible.

A comprehensive account of the basic theory of the mechanical behavior of heterogeneous media, this volume assembles, interprets, and interrelates contributions to the field of composite materials from theoretical research, laboratory developments, and product applications. The text focuses on the continuum mechanics aspects of behavior; specifically, it invokes idealized geometric models of the heterogeneous system to obtain theoretical predictions of macroscopic properties in terms of the properties of individual constituent materials. The wide range of subjects encompasses macroscopic stiffness properties, failure characterization, and wave propagation. Much of the book presumes a familiarity with the theory of linear elasticity; but it also takes into consideration behavior characterized by viscoelasticity and inviscid plasticity theories and problems involving nonlinear kinematics. Because of the close relationship between mechanical and thermal effects, the text also examines macroscopic, thermal properties of heterogeneous media. Although the primary emphasis centers on the development of theory, this volume also pays critical attention to the practical assessment of results and applications. Comparisons between different approaches and with reliable experimental data appear at main junctures. Suitable as a graduate-level text,  Mechanics of Composite Materials  is also a valuable reference for professionals.

MASTERING ELLIOTT WAVE PRINCIPLE WITH TWENTY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE helping traders become more proficient in applying the Elliott Wave Principle (EWP) to their trading endeavors, author Connie Brown knows how difficult it can be. But over the years—as her skills have been shaped by the markets and the traders she has mentored—Brown has refined her way of teaching this subject so that even the most challenged individual may finally see markets move within correct wave patterns. While EWP can be a tough topic, this book eases you into the technique by taking you step by step through Elliott Wave analysis. Preliminary coaching unravels common misunderstandings that tend to sabotage those getting started. First, you'll discover how price swings and waves are not the same. Then you'll see how the elements of balance and proportion, skills developed from the study of geometry, are not subjective.
