• Description : The OKC Thunder's big man shares the unlikely story behind his indomitable sense of determination and his journey from Rotorua, New Zealand to stardom in the NBA. Steven Adams overcame extreme odds to become a first-round prospect in the 2013 NBA draft. From there he signed a major contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder--making him New Zealand's highest-paid athlete ever--and went on to forge a reputation for his intense, physical style of basketball. Adams takes you inside the draft process from the fascinating whirlwind tour of pre-draft workouts with dozens of teams to the draft itself where dreams are made or dashed and the Gatorade bottles on every table are glued shut. He reveals what it's like to be a rookie in the league, getting pushed around and elbowed--or worse. He takes the court alongside superstars like Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Durant; and matches up against legendary big men like Tim Duncan, DeAndre Jordan, Dwight Howard, and Draymond Green. Adams recounts the Thunder's rise through the victories and the heartbreaks and how the resilient team has a bright future ahead. In this intimate account of his life story so far, the seven-foot center also reflects on his humble upbringing as one of fourteen children, the impact of his father's death when he was just thirteen, the multiple challenges and setbacks he has faced, and what basketball means to him. Told with warmth, humor, and humility, My Life, My Fight is a gripping account from an emerging superstar. [...] by Publisher : 'Hachette Books'

• Description : Stoichiometric asymmetric synthesis is widely used in the academic and industrial sectors for the synthesis of chiral molecules of biological importance. Although catalytic asymmetric synthesis is an alternative, the use of equimolar amounts of chirality provides high selectivities over a wider range of substrates, without extensive modifications of reaction conditions. This volume provides, at postgraduate student level, an accessible introduction to stoichiometric asymmetric synthesis. The authors focus on stereoselective C-C bond formation in acyclic systems, with an emphasis on the use of chiral auxiliaries and reagents. The book is extensively references and so provides a convenient point of entry to the research literature. [...] by Publisher : 'Blackwell Publishing'

• Description : This book is the first detailed study in fifty years of Byzantine ivory carving in the tenth and eleventh centuries, the era when work in that medium reached its highest level of attainment. Unique in its aim and range, "The Hand of the Master" considers how, when, and why the Byzantines used ivory for icons and other luxurious items. Based on direct study of the objects, the book discusses more than 150 pieces and is illustrated with new photographs that are indispensable to an understanding of carving techniques and styles. Cutler analyzes the normal working methods of Byzantine carvers, as well as aspects of craftsmanship that enable us to identify distinct hands. These observations are then made the basis of both a revised chronology and a more rigorous system of classification than has existed heretofore. But the recognition of particular sculptors is a means rather than an end in this book. Similarities and differences within this huge body of production allow answers to such broader questions as the functions of craftsmen in this society, their relations with clients and designers, and, ultimately, the significance of ivory in the visual culture of Byzantium.
