I Rode with Wallace By Jeffrey Strickland

Prints in 3-5 business days
A few of my blog readers asked me to share this story of my military career as a series of blogs. When I set out writing about this saga, I was just writing. I had not planned for it to evolve into... More > lessons about leadership, but it did. Years before I set out on my military journey, a young officer on the staff of Thomas J “Stonewall” Jackson, wrote I Rode with Stonewall. I never really gave General William Scott Wallace a nickname, but if I had this book would be called, I Rode with the Calm Man or I Rode with the Quiet Man. I Rode with Wallace is about the modern U.S. Cavalry and my ride in it, even though that ride only lasted eight years. I did ride with Wallace for three of those eight, but I also rode with Cook and Broll, Mitchell and Vanwinkle, Charlton and Hardesty, Bates and McCoy. The book is organized into eight primary parts based on blogs I wrote. Yet there is more material than appeared in the blogs, including some unit histories and additional anecdotes.< Less

Dear Mister President is a book spoken from the heart of a veteran. I have heard it said that a veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States... More > of America for an amount of ‘up to and including my life.’ I set out to write a letter to the President of the United States, from the perspective of an ordinary citizen, even though I may or may not be one. My letter turned into a book. What follows is a series of concerns that I have for our country, based on my life experiences. It is not an autobiography, but incorporates a lot of lessons I have learned from my life and the people in it. The book is essentially a tribute to the people who have influenced my life: friends, family, mentors, veterans, and fallen heros—lest we forget.< Less
Albert Einstein: “Nobody expected me to lay golden eggs” By Jeffrey Strickland

A sequel to "Men of Manhattan", Albert Einstein: “Nobody expected me to lay golden eggs” is a new and different look at the man whose genius we often want to emulate. Although... More > this book recognizes his genius, it looks at it in a different light. Einstein, the not so good student, working in a patent office, developed his natural understanding of his world through an “out-of-the-box” curiosity among close friends and confidants, including his wife. His early career was unremarkable in the eyes of academia, and even after publication of his famous four papers in 1905, it was another four years before he was taken seriously as a scientist. We probably know him best for E=mc2, the so-called energy-mass equivalence formula, but much more is contained herein. Though this is not a rigorous mathematical treatment, we could not possibly know Einstein without a glimpse of his math.< Less

LinkedIn operates the world’s largest professional network on the Internet with more than 332 million members in over 200 countries and territories. Dr. Strickland been a LinkedIn Premium... More > member since November 2, 2010. At the time of this publication he has 4,250 followers who view his posts on a regular basis. This book is a collection of his most popular post for the year 2014. I have posted articles on a variety of topics, usually something I am quite passionate about, like professionalism, etiquette, analytical science, leadership, and so on. Post titles include, "LinkedIn Random Acts of Kindness", "Three Things Leaders Must Do", "The Last Full Measure of Devotion", "To Teach or not to Teach", and "If You Hate Probability Theory, You are in Good Company". I enjoy the interaction that I have with over 4,000 connections from 59 countries, if I include the Republic of Texas. This book is for them, but also for those friends and colleagues who do not frequent the network as much as I do.< Less

Typically, scientist try to either prove or disprove Scripture, as it relates the Creation story, then write books about their findings. Quantum Phaith is not one of those books. Instead, the author... More > accepts the Word of God, a priori. Quantum Phaith is a journey through elementary quantum mechanics, chaos theory, number theory, and more. This is also a journey through the author’s faith and what he has discovered about science through it; his faith has been unshaken by science and mathematics. Quantum Phaith examines the Creation account, using the results to support what scientists have discovered about the universe. Their discoveries were already contained in the Bible! Quantum Phaith portrays God as perfect, His creation perfect in every regard. Imperfection was introduced by the Fall or Man. God is all-powerful, all-knowing, transcends time, space, and our understanding. God is order, and you will find that chaos contains unobservable order! Quantum Phaith will make you think. It may change your life.< Less
Predictive Modeling and Analytics By Jeffrey Strickland

This book is about predictive modeling. Yet, each chapter could easily be handled by an entire volume of its own. So one might think of this as a survey of predictive models, both statistical and... More > machine learning. We define A predictive model as a statistical model or machine learning model used to predict future behavior based on past behavior. In order to use this book, the reader should have a basic understanding of statistics (statistical inference, models, tests, etc.)—this is an advanced book. Every chapter culminates in an example using R. R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, Windows and MacOS. The book is organized so that statistical models are presented first (hopefully in a logical order), followed by machine learning models, and then applications: uplift modeling and time series. One could use this as a textbook with problem solving in R (there are no “by-hand” exercises).< Less

More > weaknesses in communicating the information, but new insights into using the information obtained from analytics and communicating it. These are the kinds of things I blog about and are contained herein. Data science and analytics have been used as synonyms on occasion. In reality data science includes data modeling, data mining, data analysis, database architecture and so on. Analytics is what we do to make sense of the data. That is, we take data and turn it into information for business decision makers. This our course implies that we translate our data science jargon into English.< Less

In Quantum Phaith (Faith), Dr. Strickland argued that Science and Scripture are not at odds and Faith has substance. In Quantum Hope, he argued that Hope is tangible. In Quantum Love, he argues that... More > Love is measureable. However, we cannot choose one of these in favor of the other. Certainly Love is the greatest, but a relationship exist between Faith, Hope, and Love, which requires all three working together. Quantum Love argues from the base of Scripture that Love is not some abstract concept and that real love is only possible with the presence of the Holy Spirit. Although the Bible is the basis, Dr. Strickland injects frequent episodes of “What I Learned at the Movies.” Often, Hollywood gets it wrong, but there is an occasional nugget.< Less
