Based on the author's experience in treating over 500 gender dysphoric individuals over the last 26 years,The Gendered Self is the story of what it’s like to be born into and to live out one's... More > life as a transsexual in a cissexual world. The author starts by showing how the developing brain is genderized in-utero and how that process can go awry leaving affected individuals sex/gender incongruent. Although hormonal and surgical means is the current treatment of choice, we have come to learn that with Genital Reassignment Surgery life takes a turn wherein the individual is permanently consigned to a parallel universe: not male, not female but a bio-sociological combination of both. Transsexualism is a life long existential dilemma challenging the very nature of psychological survival. Nietzsche famously said "What does not kill you makes you stronger". As the author shows, developing a healthy transsexual identity and going on to live a meaningful life is certainly a testament to all who persist.< Less
On the Structure of Complex Networks By Daniel Grady
Paperback: $51.90
Prints in 3-5 business days
Large-scale complex networks in natural, social, and technological systems exhibit an abundance of rich information, and extracting meaningful structural features from network data is one of the most... More > challenging tasks in network theory. Nonetheless, understanding these networks is essential to explaining phenomena in transportation, epidemiology, sociology, economics, and other fields. This book presents three novel analyses of large-scale empirical networks. First, a comparison of two world-wide transportation systems reveals many statistical similarities despite extremely different operational and geographic constraints. Second, we develop a new method for determining geographic borders based on human mobility. Finally, we demonstrate how measuring networks in terms of shortest-path trees can identify a robust network skeleton, and its relevance in predicting dynamical processes.

smoke rings, coffee stains & napkin poetry By Adam Drake
Paperback: $11.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
PARENTAL WARNING: This book contains adult themes involving, but not limited to, sex, alcohol, general lust and distaste for the world. After being told to publish a book for two decades, this... More > collection of poems has finally culminated into a reality. Showing that he isn't just a dimpled smirk hidden behind a cloud of cigarette smoke, this poet has put his clever wit and skewed sociological ramblings into one entity. From his sickeningly sugary and sweet beginnings in high school through to the hungover ramblings of a youthful 20-something, we can see the origins of his off kilter humor and loathing for the world around him that blossoms on the pages of the final chapter. Whether you bask in the school boy crushes or his escapades between the sheets make you squirm a little in your seat, pour yourself a cup and let smoke rings, coffee stains & napkin poetry show you that just because this book is labeled as poetry, doesn't mean that life isn't sexy, scary or even funny more often than not.< Less
