"Fat Man" and "Little Boy" were the nicknames given the atomic bombs that were dropped over Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the waning days of World War II. This elaborately assembled film is the story of the events leading up to the dawn of the atomic age. Paul Newman plays General Leslie Groves, a hard-nosed career soldier who in 1942 finds himself the reluctant "nursemaid" to a group of idealistic scientists in Los Alamos, New Mexico. As the military head of the top-secret Manhattan Project, Groves intends to have the operation run by the book–and failing that, to have things his way at all costs. The film's storyline narrows down to a battle of egos between Groves and atomic scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer (Dwight Schultz), in his own way as contentious and childishly single-purposed as the general.

Genre: Biography

Toby Lester, author of the award-winning The Fourth Part of the World, masterfully crafts yet another century-spanning saga of people and ideas in this epic story of Vitruvian Man, Leonardo da Vinci's iconic drawing of a man inscribed in a circle and a square. Over time, the nearly 550-year-old ink-on-paper sketch has transformed into a collective symbol of the nature of genius, the beauty of the human form, and the universality of the human spirit; it has also been replicated ad nauseam on mass-produced coffee cups, T-shirts, book covers, and corporate logos.

Mark Hatmaker - Great Escapes: Beating the Grappler at His Own Game

Genre: Sport, Martial Arts, Self-Defense

When you crash to the ground, limbs suddenly locked in an opponent's grip, your carefully practiced strikes and kicks may be rendered useless. Stripped of your offensive moves, your only chance is to forcefully and immediately break free. Mark Hatmaker's years of grappling experience are in plain view here as he not only demonstrates dozens and dozens of escapes and counters to submissions, pins, and rides, but more importantly shows you how to put these moves together into combinations. Just as you chain your offensive moves, you must learn to chain your defenses to react fluidly to your opponent's onslaught, and in Great Escapes you will learn escapes as sequences; you will learn how your opponent is going to flow so you can think three or four defensive movements ahead. But what if you're not a grappler? You're not planning on a ground fight, so do you really need to know all these escapes? The reality is that grappling just happens. The shoot happens, the takedown happens, the ground will happen. If you don't plan for it now, you're in for pain later.
