Devotion is the gripping story of the US Navy's most famous aviator duo - Tom Hudner, a white, blue-blooded New Englander, and Jesse Brown, a black sharecropper's son from Mississippi. Against all odds, Jesse beat back racism to become the Navy's first black aviator. Against all expectations, Tom passed up a free ride at Harvard to fly fighter planes for his country. Barely a year after President Truman ordered the desegregation of the military, the two became wingmen in Fighter Squadron 32 and went on to fight side-by-side in the Korean War. In the war's climatic battle at the Chosin Reservoir, Tom and Jesse flew headlong into waves of troops in order to defend an entire division of Marines trapped on a frozen lake. Jesse was shot down and pinned in the burning wreckage of his fighter. Tom then faced an unthinkable choice - to see his friend burn to death or to go down in a blaze of glory, flouting the rules to crash-land behind enemy lines and save Jesse - or die trying. The question was crueller than the freezing wind: How far will you go to save a friend?

Technische Systeme werden immer häufiger mit Computerprogrammen entworfen und optimiert. Die Programme simulieren das Verhalten von Systemen auf der Basis mathematischer Modelle. Der Autor legt die Methodik der Modellermittlung und -beschreibung dar, wobei das Gesamt-Blockschaltbild eine wichtige Stufe der Modellentwicklung ist. Die von ihm entwickelte Methodik wendet er auf zahlreiche Beispiele wachsender Komplexität an. Mit Hilfe des verwendeten Grundalgorithmus können auch andere, im Buch nicht behandelte Systeme untersucht werden.

Die Frauen in diesem Buch machen verrückte Sachen: Sie stecken den Kopf unter den Pullover des Ex oder in ein Aquarium, sie haben Liebeskummer und trösten sich mit dem Klimawandel, sie starren zur Zimmerdecke und überlegen, ob ihre Probleme etwas mit Baustoffen zu tun haben (- oder doch eher mit der Mütze, die sie tragen); sie trauern einem Einbrecher nach, den es nicht gibt, lernen Gott kennen, ohne Unterhose in einer Kirche, und kündigen als Regalbetreuerin im Bereich »Haus halt & Ambiente«; sie übernehmen Verantwortung und zünden Hühnerställe an, sie kriegen keine Luft, aber sie können Madonna sein. Wie gesagt: verrückt! Und doch ist es das Naheliegendste und Selbstverständlichste. Machen das nicht alle so, wenn es ums Glück geht? Um es zu finden, um es nicht zu verlieren, um es wiederzugewinnen, um es nicht loslassen zu müssen. Denn natürlich kann man das Glück zwingen, wenn man nicht ewig warten will, bis es einem zufliegt. Das zeigen diese liebenswert verschrobenen Frauen in diesen wunderbar witzigen Geschichten. Ja, auch erzwungenes Glück kann glücklich machen. Es ist dann sogar noch komisch und traurig und beides zugleich!

Die nachdenklich stimmende Analyse unserer Gesellschaft, deren Geltungsbedürfnis keine Grenzen kennt. Selbstbewusstsein und Selbstüberschätzung sind enge Verwandte. Ein Buch darüber, was ein hemmungsloses "Ich! Ich! Ich!" bewirkt, und warum wir uns dagegen wehren sollten. "Mir kann keiner", sagt der Kollege im Büro, "weil ich der Größte bin", denkt er. "Lästig", denken wir, aber so ist er halt. Doch wenn Manager, Banker und Politiker dem Größenwahn erliegen, wirds kritisch – für uns alle!
