Today Amazon offers The Last Explorer by Simon Nasht just for $1.99.
This riveting biography recounts the life of the world’s first truly modern explorer, a life of unrelenting adventure and the high drama of polar exploration. Hubert Wilkins was the most successful explorer in history: no one saw with his own eyes more undiscovered land and sea. Largely self-taught, he was a celebrated reporter, pilot, spy, war hero, scientist, and adventurer. He captured in his lens war and famine, cheated death repeatedly, met world leaders like Lenin, Mussolini, and King George V, and circled the globe on a zeppelin. Knighted for being the first person to fly across the North Pole, Wilkins was also the first to fly in the Antarctic, discover land by airplane, and take a submarine under the Arctic ice.

Find Chords and Scales on your Android Device
Do you love your piano or keyboard but get bored when it comes to the nuts and bolts of finding chords and scales?
KeyChord is a virtual keyboard on which you can select chords or scaletypes. Now you can create beautiful music by tapping the screen of your smartphone or tablet without the strain of figuring out scales and chord root notes.
A Personal Piano Teacher
You can use KeyChord as your personal music tutor, learning chords and scales while enjoying the creative side of the piano. For instance, simply tap on a key to make it the root of your chord, or long-press a selected chord note to invert the chord to that position. You can do the same with scales. Tap an already-selected root note for different kinds of information modes like note names or intervals.
KeyChord lets you select a chord dynamically anywhere you want on the keyboard. It doesn’t use a database to give you just a few predefined chord locations, but knows how chords work mathematically, giving you the power to explore chords on your keyboard.
Reverse Lookup allows for dynamic note selection for the chords you have in mind or that you discover on your piano: Keychord tells you automatically how the chord is called, and supports even missing notes like CMaj7 (no 5th).
