I sat at a rooftop bar on an island in Florida, watching the sunset. I realized the first night that the sun wasn’t only setting on the day but also on my life. I needed to hear from God concerning the end of my physical life, which is approaching. God gently taught me how to die and how to not be afraid of what is to come. He also taught me how to live, breathing hope into my soul. I have enjoyed my conversations with God, and in these pages, have attempted to share them with you. I pray that as you read, God becomes visible to you and that you find this book an enlightening treasure in your life.

A multidisciplinary and accessible introduction to humanitys favorite structure: the bridge. Whether you are a student considering a career in civil engineering and transportation planning, a public official interested in the future of infrastructure, or a person who simply cares about bridges, this book offers an accessible and illustrated introduction to the most beloved feature of our built environment. Learn about engineering basics: the forces that bridges must resist to stay aloft and the principles by which engineers decide which types of bridges make sense at which sites. Find out how engineers protect bridges from their greatest threatsthe earthquakes, floods, and other hazards that can cause catastrophic damage. Moving from engineering to planning, learn how we decide whether a bridge is worth building in the first place, learn about controversial features of cost-benefit analysis, and about the transportation models by which planners forecast bridge effects on traffic patterns. Investigate a sometimes intractable problem: why a project often creeps along for a decade or more to get from initial studies to the day the ribbon is cut, undergoing vast cost escalations. Also explore the environmental impact of bridges, and the meaning of a sustainable bridge, and whether bridges could once again be built, like ancient Roman ones, to last a thousand years. Authoritative, comprehensive, and fun to read, this book is for everyone interested in bridges, from the lay reader to the techie who likes to see how things work. It also will serve as an excellent companion to beginning design students in architecture and engineering, and it should be on the shelf of civil engineers, architects, and contractors, too. Robert E. Paaswell, City College of New York This work will help educated but nonspecialist decision makers to appreciate the complexity of bridge design, construction, and maintenance in making decisions that impact bridges.

The gripping first-hand account of the events that inspired the major film Bridge of Spies, starring Tom Hanks, by the man at the centre of them all - James B. Donovan. Also featuring a foreword by Jason Matthews. With the Cold War at its height, the capture and trial of Colonel Abel, the Soviets' most capable and effective spy, revealed the chilling depths of the KGB's penetration of the West. But when an American U-2 spy plane was shot down over Russia and its CIA pilot, Gary Powers, captured, both men's fates hung in the balance. With East and West staring each other down across the Iron Curtain the stakes couldn't have been higher. And at the heart of it all, from Abel's arrest to his exchange with Powers on Berlin's infamous 'Bridge of Spies', was James B. Donovan. Strangers on the Bridge is the only inside account of the greatest spy story of the era and a real-life espionage classic. ____________ Reviews of Strangers on a Bridge: 'Enthralling ...
