Michael Banks This book has been designed to provide a guide for staff and students on some of the most popular apps that are available for use on the iPad. Whilst it does not cover everything that you can learn about these apps its aim is provide a point of reference with how to use them. The entire book has been created by myself and as such the apps covered are ones that I myself have used in the classroom. I would not consider this a list of the best apps, merely an introduction to some of the ones you may turn to first of all and find that through their use you become more comfortable with future apps.
Michael Banks A guide for students in following KS3 national curriculum History. In this book you will find useful information that you can read and watch that will help with your understanding of the topics that you are currently studying in year 7.
Rusty McClure, David Stern & Michael Banks Set in the vibrant Industrial Age and filigreed with family drama and epic ambition, Crosley chronicles one of the great untold tales of the twentieth century. Born in the late 1800s into a humble world of dirt roads and telegraphs, Powel and Lewis Crosley were opposites in many ways but shared drive, talent, and an unerring knack for knowing what Americans wanted. Their pioneering inventions — from the first mass-produced economy car to the push-button radio — and breakthroughs in broadcasting and advertising made them both wealthy and famous, as did their ownership of the Cincinnati Reds. But as their fortunes grew, so did Powel’s massive ego, which demanded he own eight mansions and seven yachts at the height of the Great Depression. Rich with detailed reminiscences from surviving family members, Crosley is both a powerful saga of a heady time in American history and an intimate tale of two brilliant brothers navigating triumph and tragedy.

Mack Reynolds & Michael Banks It's a crooked road to world peace...but it works. Warfare between nations has been banned. Taking its place are the Corporate Wars -- full-scale battles between mercenary armies hired by large corporations, ostensibly to settle trade disputes.
But the wars are also free entertainment for the masses. In a world where most jobs have been taken over by automation, free tranquilizers have to be issued to the vast lower class to keep them subdued. The Corporate Wars offer what little excitement their lives hold; deadly serious fighting action -- live and in color.
But when you play with armies, you play with fire. The world's leaders seem to have forgotten that...but Joe Mauser hasn't!
Michael Banks I have written this book so that others can benefit from the struggle i’ve been through. Gotta Kidney?! was written for all the millions of people who are affected directly or indirectly by kidney disease and indeed anyone facing major life-changing challenges of any kind, whether they be medical or otherwise. I believe that people will feel encouraged and inspired by reading Gotta Kidney?! This book is not a medical journal nor does it pretend to be a work of great literature! It is the story of my journey from being diagnosed with CKD (chronic kidney disease) through kidney failure, dialysis, transplant, and into recovery. As the subtitle of the books states, it is A Journey Through Fear to Hope and Beyond.
Whenever a major crisis occurs there is always fear of the unknown future. What will happen to me now? How will I survive? The unknown can be scary. So the idea of this book is to give hope and encouragement to those in these circumstances and to inspire and give comfort. You can get through these life events and come out the other end a wiser and happier person. In this accessible story you can find advice and even some light hearted humor along the way. And knowing that others have been down the road you’re embarking upon, or on already, can be reassuring and even inspirational.
And finally, the book includes a chapter written by Karin, my living donor. Her journey through the various barriers she faced to donating one of her kidneys demonstrates courage and generosity in the face of fear and resistance. Karin and I hope the book will encourage and inspire those considering donating a kidney, or any organ for that matter, to go ahead in the knowledge that the rewards of donation can be so great!
