Based on the blog and personal journal Hollis Walker wrote during her journey through breast cancer, The Booby Blog: A Cancer Chronicle shows us what living with cancer is really like. While most people may assume the physical aspects of cancer are the worst of it, Walker's real-time writing reveals a relentless and intense parade of emotional and spiritual responses marching beneath the surface: anger, fear, uncertainty, isolation, and threats to identity, self-esteem and faith. During her search for meaning in the midst of this chaos, Walker discovers a secret: we must embrace illness as part of our spiritual journey in order to become the authors of our own healing. With honesty, immediacy and humor, The Booby Blog: A Cancer Chronicle offers inspiration and hope to those facing life-threatening illness and the people who care about them.
This book on road traffic congestion in cities and suburbs describes congestion problems and shows how they can be relieved. The first part (Chapters 1 - 3) shows how congestion reflects transportation technologies and settlement patterns. The second part (Chapters 4 - 13) describes the causes, characteristics, and consequences of congestion. The third part (Chapters 14 - 23) presents various relief strategies - including supply adaptation and demand mitigation - for nonrecurring and recurring congestion. The last part (Chapter 24) gives general guidelines for congestion relief and provides a general outlook for the future.
The book will be useful for a wide audience - including students, practitioners and researchers in a variety of professional endeavors: traffic engineers, transportation planners, public transport specialists, city planners, public administrators, and private enterprises that depend on transportation for their activities.
