Most San Francisco Giants fans have taken in a game or two at AT&T Park, have seen highlights of Willie Mays' basket catch on YouTube, and were thrilled by the team's World Series wins in 2010, 2012 and 2014, but even the die-hards—those who remember which pitcher started the first home game in San Francisco's history, have attended a spring training game at Scottsdale Stadium, or know how many home runs Barry Bonds hit into McCovey Cove during his record-setting career—will appreciate this ultimate resource guide for true fans of the San Francisco Giants. For both boosters from the days of Bobby Thomson and recent supporters of Bruce Bochy, Madison Bumgarner, and Buster Posey, these are the 100 things all fans need to know and do in their lifetime. Longtime sportswriter Bill Chastain has collected every essential piece of Giants knowledge and trivia, as well as must-do activities, and ranks them from 1 to 100, providing an entertaining and easy-to-follow checklist that leads the way to achieving fan superstardom.


The Battle of the Gods and Giants


Title : The Battle of the Gods and Giants
Author : Thomas M. Lennon
Publisher: Princeton University Press
Total pages: 436 pages
ISBN: 1400863392

By the mid-1600s, the commonsense, manifest picture of the world associated with Aristotle had been undermined by skeptical arguments on the one hand and by the rise of the New Science on the other. What would be the scientific image to succeed the Aristotelian model? Thomas Lennon argues here that the contest between the supporters of Descartes and the supporters of Gassendi to decide this issue was the most important philosophical debate of the latter half of the seventeenth century. Descartes and Gassendi inspired their followers with radically opposed perspectives on space, the objects in it, and how these objects are known. Lennon maintains that differing concepts on these matters implied significant moral and political differences: the Descartes/Gassendi conflict was typical of Plato's perennial battle of the gods (friends of forms) and giants (materialists), and the crux of that enduring philosophical struggle is the exercise of moral and political authority. Lennon demonstrates, in addition, that John Locke should be read as having taken up Gassendi's cause against Descartes. In Lennon's reinterpretation of the history of philosophy between the death dates of Gassendi and Malebranche, Locke's acknowledged opposition to Descartes on some issues is applied to the most important questions of Locke exegesis. Originally published in 1993. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Publisher: HarperCollins
Total pages: 128 pages
ISBN: 0062567977

Written by New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by UK Laureate Chris Riddell, this new edition of the thrilling, wintry Nordic tale weaves a truly magical story of legend and adventure that will grip and enchant readers from beginning to end. This new edition is heavily illustrated, much like the New York Times bestselling The Sleeper and the Spindle. Odd, a young Viking boy, is left fatherless following a raid, and in his icy, ancient world there is no mercy for an unlucky soul with a crushed foot and no one to protect him. Fleeing to the woods, Odd stumbles upon and releases a trapped bear…and then Odd's destiny begins to change. The eagle, bear, and fox Odd encounters are Norse gods, trapped in animal form by the evil frost giant who has conquered Asgard, the city of the gods. Now our hero must reclaim Thor's hammer, outwit the frost giants and release the gods… First published in 2009, Odd and the Frost Giants has been reimagined by acclaimed artist Chris Riddell in the style of his epic black-and-white artwork from The Sleeper and the Spindle, enhanced here with metallic silver ink.

Fall of Giants


Title : Fall of Giants
Author : Ken Follett
Publisher: Penguin
Total pages: 960 pages
ISBN: 1101543558

Ken Follett’s magnificent new historical epic begins as five interrelated families move through the momentous dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women’s suffrage. A thirteen-year-old Welsh boy enters a man’s world in the mining pits. . . . An American law student rejected in love finds a surprising new career in Woodrow Wilson’s White House. . . . A housekeeper for the aristocratic Fitzherberts takes a fateful step above her station, while Lady Maud Fitzherbert herself crosses deep into forbidden territory when she falls in love with a German spy. . . . And two orphaned Russian brothers embark on radically different paths when their plan to emigrate to America falls afoul of war, conscription, and revolution. From the dirt and danger of a coal mine to the glittering chandeliers of a palace, from the corridors of power to the bedrooms of the mighty, Fall of Giants takes us into the inextricably entangled fates of five families—and into a century that we thought we knew, but that now will never seem the same again. . . .

Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men

Publisher: Feral House
Total pages: 300 pages
ISBN: 1936239094

Consider the possibility that the history of the human race is not as simple as what has been taught in classroom textbooks. Consider the possibility that the evolutionary scientific explanation for mankind has ignored critical facts that are buried deep within the fossils and mankind's DNA. Consider the possibility that the religious stories that have often been the core basis for mankind's understanding of where it belongs in the history of creation may actually reveal a planet occupied with tyrannical giants and an elite highly intelligent race bent on genetic mutation. As horrifying as such possibilities are, Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men sets forth a plausible theory revealing a hidden history of mankind and a possible reason that it has remained veiled for hundreds of thousands of years. With his well-documented style and breathtaking conclusions, Dr. Joseph P. Farrell pulls back the veil and takes the reader on an odyssey behind the mysterious history and myths of the human race. Joseph P. Farrell is a recognized scholar whose credentials include a PhD in philosophy from the University of Oxford. His literary contribution is a veritable resumé unto itself covering such fields as Nazi Germany, sacred literature, physics, finances, the Giza pyramids, and music theory. A renowned researcher with an eye to assimilate a tremendous amount of background material, Farrell is able to condense the best scholastic research in publication and draw insightful new conclusions on complex and controversial subjects.

ISBN: 1468901206

Giants of olden daysis about the titans of tall, the giants of greatness, and the children of the fallen angels as described in Genesis 6:2-8. For this is the story of gigantic, the real tall tale which is no fable. Just look up giant foot prints on You Tube in order to witness authenticated fossilized prints that are over four feet long. Neither are those huge people of yesteryear out of place in earth's timeline since all life on earth was made to be gigantic due to a satanictouch from fallen angels. Therefore please sit back and open your mind about realities that changed all of history. For the dead sea scrolls clearly say that God sent the flood to wipe away all of the evil that those giants wallowed in like humongous pigs in the dirtiest of mud. Please check out this book's free preview in order to see just how evil those giants of old really were. And as this text is read people shall quickly see that our world's demons are not fallen angels as most Christians have falsely believed. For it is clearly written that there are two kinds of demons, ones born on earth that haunt the earth, and the kind that were born in Heaven who haunt the heavenlies as powers and principalities of the most evil kind. Enjoy.........D.F.O.

Tales of Giants from Brazil is Elsie Spicer Eells’ second collection of twelve, illustrated Brazillian stories. In this volume you will find unique stories with unfamiliar titles. Stories like The Princess Of The Springs, The Fountain Of Giant Land, The Little Sister Of The Giants, The Giant’s Pupil plus eight more. When one thinks of giants in folklore, South America is not usually the region of the world that first comes to mind. We are more familiar with tales of giants in the fairy tales and folklore of the West. So, to have twelve absolutely unique stories of giants from Brazil in one volume is extra-special. For this we have Elsie Spicer-Eells to thank. As Eells puts it, “Brazil is the land of giant fruits and giant flowers. Of course it is the land of giant stories too.” It is safe to stay that storytelling was alive and well in Central and South America when the Portuguese arrived in circa AD1500. It would also be safe to say that the Portuguese brought their folk tales along with their trade. Therefore it does not take a leap of the imagination to conclude that at some point the folklore from these two cultures became entwined to form new stories – much like the mixing of the dark, almost black, waters of the Rio Negro and the brown, lighter, muddy waters of the Rio Solimoes just north of the City of Manaus. It is often claimed that this is where the Amazon River truly starts. So, find a comfy chair, sit back with a hot toddy, and enjoy these twelve unique and authentic folk stories for children.

The Encyclopedia of Ancient Giants in North America chronicles two distinct waves of giant humans migrating to North America. As early as 7,000 B.C., strange people arrived on the North American shores of gigantic size with Neanderthal looking skulls. Their spread across the American landscape is documented not only by their massive skeletons but by an identical material culture that was found buried with their remains. Double rows of teeth and skulls with protruding horns make them one of America's most intriguing mysteries. At the advent of the Bronze Age another migration of giant humans found their way to North America. A persistent legend exists with Native Americans of a people who came to trade and mine the copper from the Upper Great Lakes. They left an indelible mark upon the landscape of the Ohio Valley with their large burial mounds and earthworks aligned to solar, lunar and stellar events. The measurements of these works reveal that they were constructed with the knowledge of advanced mathematics. The discovery of giant humans in North America is the result of pouring through over 10,000 State, County and Township histories at one of the largest genealogical libraries in America. Hundreds of additional accounts were also found within newspaper archives. The result is the Largest Compilation of Giant Human Skeletons Discovered in North America in Print. 888 Human Giants Giants in 47 States Mass Graves of Ancient Dwarfs Fairies and Paranormal Activity at Burial Mounds and Earthworks Giant Mummies
