Drawing Made Easy Forgotten Books

Drawing Made Easy: A Helpful Book for Young Artists is an instructional guide written by Edwin George Lutz. Lutz's book is intended to be an instructional for beginning artists. The book begins with a very brief introduction that features the tools required for successful drawing. While intended as a how-to guide, the book contains very little text. Instead, the pages of Lutz's book are primarily composed of step-by-step guides to drawing very specific items. Christmas trees, campfires, thrushes, pansies, storks, pigs, babies, and automobiles are only some of the items detailed in this book. A standard page features a brief explanatory paragraph and a series of steps in drawing an item, from designing the outline to filling in the details. Lutz's book is clearly intended for the beginning artist with little to no experience. While the step-by-step nature of the instruction is appreciated, the book at times does lack textual explanation. Little detail is provided on topics such as shading and perspective, and while the reader will use both of these techniques, they may not be aware they are doing so. Ultimately, Drawing Made Easy is a useful book as an individual's very first introduction to drawing, it is effective in guiding the reader from start to finish on a large number of drawings. This book can be recommended as a good starting point. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

May 6, 1986: Nick Popaditch arrives at the Receiving Barracks, Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, California.returncharacterreturncharacterApril 9, 2003: An AP photographer captures a striking image seen around the world of the Gunny Sergeant smoking a victory cigar in his tank, the haunting statue of Saddam Hussein hovering in the background. Popaditch is immortalized forever as "The Cigar Marine."returncharacterreturncharacterApril 6, 2004: The tanker fights heroically in the battle for Fallujah and suffers grievous head wounds that leave him legally blind and partially deaf. The USMC awards him with a Silver Star for his valor and combat innovation.returncharacterreturncharacterApril 18, 2004: "Gunny Pop" comes home to face the toughest fight of his life-a battle to remain the man and Marine he was. This is the central drama of Nick's inspiring memoir, Once a Marine: An Iraq War Tank Commander's Inspirational Memoir of Combat, Courage, and Recovery.returncharacterreturncharacterReaders in and out of the military will stand up and cheer for this valiant Marine's Marine, a man who embodies everything noble and proud in the Corps' long tradition. Never has modern mechanized combat seemed so immediate and real, or the fight in Iraq seemed so human and worth believing in.returncharacterreturncharacterAt first, Nick fights to get back to where he was in Iraq-in the cupola of an M1A1 main battle tank, leading Marines in combat at the point of the spear. As the seriousness and permanence of his disabilities become more evident, Nick fights to remain in the Corps in any capacity, to help the brothers in arms he so aches to rejoin. Facing the inevitable following a medical retirement, he battles for rightful recognition and compensation for his permanent disabilities. Throughout his harrowing ordeal, Nick fights to maintain his honor and loyalty, waging all these battles the same way-the Marine way-because anything less would be a betrayal of all he holds dear.returncharacterreturncharacterThe real triumph in Once a Marine is its previously untold, behind-the-scenes tale of the day-to-day life of a career Marine noncommissioned staff officer. In most books and movies, a "Gunny" is little more than a cardboard character. Nick's portrayal is a man complete: a husband and father, as well as a warrior and a molder of young warriors. He reveals himself completely, something no memoirist in his position has ever done before. This includes our very personal introduction to his wife April, whose heroics in the story equal Nick's, together with dozens of others who, as Sgt. Popaditch writes, gave so much, so selflessly and freely, to him. Like the man himself, Once a Marine is full of gratitude and refreshingly free of false bravado and braggadocio.returncharacterreturncharacterAll Americans, of all political persuasions, have a duty to meet this courageous and admirable fighting man, an exemplar of all our military men and women who give so much out of love for their nation. Meeting Gunny Sergeant Popaditch through the pages of his inspirational memoir offers up new reasons to be proud and shoulder our own responsibilities as Americans.returncharacterreturncharacterOnce a Marine will instantly take its place among outstanding combat classics.

Once a Marine, Gunny Sergeant Nick Popaditch's heart-wrenching and inspiring memoir, puts a name and a face on this sacrifice. Every American should read this book to remind them of what these brave warriors of freedom endure on our behalf."- Congressman Bob Filner, Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs.returncharacterreturncharacter"Gunny Popaditch's story is as inspiring as it is dramatic. This wounded warrior suffered grievous injuries - an RPG to the head! - but refused to give up on life, even when his wounds forced him out of the Corps. Once a Marine is a 'must read' story of one of today's real heroes."- Jerry D. Morelock, PhD, Colonel, U. S. Army (Ret.), Editor in Chief, Armchair General returncharacterreturncharacter"Author Gunny Sergeant Nick Popaditch, a Silver Star recipient and the subject of the world-famous AP photo, has penned what must surely be classed as among the best personal memoirs of any combat soldier in recent memory.

Without intending to, Once a Marine articulates life in the modern Marine Corps more clearly than anything I've read. No blindly loyal fanatic, Popaditch candidly acknowledges the bullshit, yet artfully captures the inimitable spirit of camaraderie and commitment that makes the Marine Corps unique. Extraordinarily motivating and compellingly honest book, it made me pine for my own long-finished Marine Corps career."- Jay A. Stout, Lt.Col. USMC (Ret.), author of Hornet's Over Kuwaitreturncharacterreturncharacter"Gunny Pop" Popaditch's courageous memoir of his life in and out of the Marine Corps is intelligently written and imbued with a brazen honesty rarely found elsewhere.

Love and Lust CHRONICLE BOOKS

SALES HANDLE: The allure and sales track record of the Desire Journal meets bestselling sex author, speaker, and performer Susie Bright. HOW THIS TITLE WILL BE PROFITABLE AND DISTINCTIVE: The fanbase of Susie Bright and the success of Chronicle's sex publishing is a winning combination. This journal will be distinctive in that it is authored by Susie Bright, a recognized expert in the field, and it combines a mix of quotes and prompts (whereas our Desire Journal and many of the other journals on the market are much less guided). QUANTIFY VALUE: Susie Bright leads sold-out sex workshops in which she guides participants to journal about their sex lives. The same content is found in this journal, without the expense of signing up for an actual workshop. By the end of this journal, the consumer will have created a 'sex autobiography' she can look back on, and will have uncovered some forgotten memories and come up with some ideas for new sexual experiences she wants to have. TREND/CONSUMER: Sex sells. Other guided sex journals have done extremely well, with out-of-house journals like All About Us selling almost 360K and even our own Desire Journal at 270K. And this journal speaks to a more experienced, somewhat older woman, where the Desire Journal found a niche in the teen and young woman market. And it speaks to women who are a little less shy about their sexual selves (think women who watched Sex and the City in its heyday (or watch it in reruns today) and strive to emulate the sexual lives of the characters). Think women who celebrate their sexuality--they may not discuss it openly with everyone, but they're not shy about it. HEAVY-HITTING AUTHOR: Susie Bright is a publicity/marketing powerhouse! --Susie Bright is a well-known sexpert--respected author, speaker, teacher, audio show host, and performer. She edited the two most successful erotica series of all time, 'Herotica' and 'Best American Erotica.' --Susie is an active and respected figure in the world of sex and sexual politics.
