In this new edition, the special mechanics of riding a motorcycle and the way a motorcycle performs mechanically are explained in nontechnical terms. Quasi-motorcycles are compared and contrasted with standard motorcycles to acquaint the reader with their similarities and differences. Rider safety considerations and human factors issues such as conspicuity, evasive action, warning to the rider, and rider experience and training are discussed in detail. Visual perception and injury biomechanics are given extensive coverage. A wide variety of motorcycle accidents are reconstructed and explained to illustrate the most useful, successful and often specialized techniques for reconstructing these accidents. The legal aspects of motorcycle use are thoroughly covered, including helmet laws, negligence, laws governing accidents, accidents on public and private property, trespassing, warnings, roadway defects, motorcycle defects, injury to passengers, and Dram Shop liability in DUI cases.

Revving engines, smoking tires, and high speeds. Car racing enthusiasts and race drivers alike know the thrill of competition, the push to perform better, and the agony—and dangers—of bad decisions. But driving faster and better involves more than just high horsepower and tightly tuned engines. Physicist and amateur racer Chuck Edmondson thoroughly discusses the physics underlying car racing and explains just what's going on during any race, why, and how a driver can improve control and ultimately win. The world of motorsports is rich with excitement and competition—and physics. Edmondson applies common mathematical theories to real-world racing situations to reveal the secrets behind successful fast driving. He explains such key concepts as how to tune your car and why it matters, how to calculate 0 to 60 mph times and quarter-mile times and why they are important, and where, when, why, and how to use kinematics in road racing.

"Moving Forward Faster" reveals the deep secrets of Lean management. This provocative and insightful book clearly explains why Lean management, despite its overwhelming advantages over conventional management, has yet to become ubiquitous in organizations. This book presents the key economic, social, political ideas that must diminish or be eliminated, and historical facts that must be understood and acknowledged in order to experience long-term success with Lean management. It will challenge, annoy, frighten, enlighten, frustrate, educate, and enliven readers. Readers will gain a clear picture of how remarkably different Lean leaders’ minds are compared to conventional leaders’ minds. The differences range from great to small and reflect an overall way of thinking that completely upends the norm - for the customer, and for the better.
