The #1 English-language bestseller in China--the book that is shaping China's planning and policy for the future. A "gray rhino" is a highly probable, high impact yet neglected threat: kin to both the elephant in the room and the improbable and unforeseeable black swan. Gray rhinos are not random surprises, but occur after a series of warnings and visible evidence. The bursting of the housing bubble in 2008, the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters, the new digital technologies that upended the media world, the fall of the Soviet Union...all were evident well in advance. Why do leaders and decision makers keep failing to address obvious dangers before they spiral out of control? Drawing on her extensive background in policy formation and crisis management, as well as in-depth interviews with leaders from around the world, Michele Wucker shows in The Gray Rhino how to recognize and strategically counter looming high impact threats. Filled with persuasive stories, real-world examples, and practical advice, The Gray Rhino is essential reading for managers, investors, planners, policy makers, and anyone who wants to understand how to profit by avoiding getting trampled.

It has been many years since the last book on golfing in Kenya was written. Comprehensive in its coverage, this guide covers all aspects of golfing in Kenya. It has been written with the visiting golfer in mind, but is nonetheless candid and includes much local humour and club lore. Cartoons, area and course maps and photographs in full colour, and descriptions of area side-trips and diversions are also included. Background information on the history of the sport, and planning a golfing safari are given. Five chapters cover the five sections of the country into which the golf courses have been grouped, each section giving an area map and club fact files, and an overview of play for the course. The final part of the book gives information about getting about, accommodation, and other useful travel information.

Professor Julian Denton receives an invitation from the government of Botswana to conduct research on its endangered elephant population. Denton is an expert on elephants and a well known conservationist, but his training could not have prepared him for what he would find in Africa. Around the same time, a group of wealthy industrialists from the United States plans a trip to Africa...for safari. The prize: elephant. Ignoring conservation laws, the group procures the services of a ruthless, former South African mercenary turned poacher as an illegal hunting guide. Only the hunt turns out to be more than they bargained for. Ideologies come to blows over the fate of the elephants. In a macabre game where the hunters become the hunted, the African bush becomes the stage for the ultimate test of survival. The stakes are no less than life and death.

On Safari, B.E.A., 16th October 1909. To Sir Alfred E. Pease. Dear Sir Alfred,—I am very much pleased that you are to write a book about lion-hunting. Very, very few people have an experience which better justifies such a book. It is the king of all sports when carried on as you have carried it on, especially when you gallop the lion, and then kill him on foot as he charges or prepares to charge as a lion thus rounded up will generally do. I am peculiarly pleased to have you write the book, for it was under your guidance that I first tried lion-hunting. Sincerely yours, Theodore Roosevelt. This hunting classic contains the following chapters: Foreword by Theodore Roosevelt I. Lions and Lion Land II. About Courage III. Of the Courage of Lions IV. Of Dangerous Game V. Of Sport VI. The Lion VII. The Distribution of Lions VIII. Lion Cubs and Tame Lions IX. The Haunts of Lions X. The Lion’s Voice and the Lion’s Eye XI. Some Ways of Lions XII. In the Lion’s Jaw XIII. The Food and Drink of Lions XIV. Lion-Hunting XV. Hunting with Dogs and Hunting with Horses XVI. Night-Shooting XVII. Hints for the Beginner

By living a normal, boring life like most people do, one has an excellent chance of becoming yet another statistic on the proverbial list of the leading causes of death. Of course, the process can be accelerated a bit by eating lots of fat, giving up exercise, smoking, drinking heavily (not water), and worrying. Buck Tilton prefers to ponder the alternatives. In How to Die in the Outdoors, he presents us with 110 far more interesting and unique ways to perish: snake bite, elephant foot, walrus tusk, rhino horn, and many, many more. In a straightforward style laced with his trademark wit, and presented in easy to understand terms, Tilton describes not only the details of how one can die, some intriguingly gory and all based—more or less—on facts, but also the ways to avoid death should life-threatening situations arise in which one is not ready to check out of this world and into whatever afterlife there may be.
A serious rhino charge is a frightening sight as the animal puts its head down and accelerates to thirty miles per hour within a few paces.

East Mrica is rapidly becoming one of the most popular areas in the world among the increasing numbers of travellers who are prepared to venture outside their own continent. To those of us fortunate enough to live here, the reasons for this popularity are quite apparent. Much of the region enjoys an equable climate all the year round with no extremes of either heat or cold and with plenty of sunshine. Scenically the area is one of the most beautiful on earth with a marvellous variety of landscape. The beaches are vast and clean and unspoilt. But the outstanding attractions of East Africa, for most people, are its fascinating peoples and the unparalleled abundance of its wild life. This guide is the first of three planned to cover the whole region of East Mrica. It deals with Kenya and Northern Tanzania. The other guides will deal with Uganda and the rest of Tanzania. Many books have been written about East Africa. They come into four main categories; the magnificent picture books, the geography books, the stories about animals and the detailed technical books on such special aspects as game conservation, bird life, prehistory, or butterflies. None of these is suitable as a practical guide for either the local resident or the average intelligent visitor, who is interested in everything but is not an enthusiastic specialist in any particular subject.
