At the age of twenty-two, William Dalrymple left his college in Cambridge to travel to the ruins of Kublai Khan’s stately pleasure dome in Xanadu. At once funny and knowledgeable, In Xanadu is in the finest tradition of British travel writing.
A parable set in the time just prior to Christianity, The Greatest Salesman in the World weaves mythology with spirituality into a much needed message of inspiration in this culture of self-promotion. At least one out of four people prefers to avoid the limelight, tends to listen more than they speak, feels alone in large groups, and requires lots of private time to restore their energy. After dispelling common myths about introverts-they're not necessarily shy, aloof, or antisocial--The Introvert Advantage explains the real issues. The Introvert Advantage dispels introverts' belief that something is wrong with them and instead helps them recognize their inner strengths-their analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration.
Finally, it shows how to not just survive, but thrive-how to take advantage of the introvert's special qualities to create a life that's just right for the introvert temperament, to discover new ways to expand their energy reserves, and even how, when necessary, to confidently become a temporary extrovert. In today’s frenetic, uncertain world, the “same old, same old” routines are perfect ways to go nowhere fast. Rethink Innovation: Find ways to think outside the box, seek out diverse opinions, and pay attention to the next great trend. Rethink the Journey: Understand that innovation is a process and that progress comes in cycles rather than a quick straight line.

Complete instructions on how you must get your family completely protected by the ongoing and worsening "Dollar Devaluation Depression." This is what our economy will be named by historians of the future. In the last Great Depression, the events of job loss, homelessness and hunger in America were caused purely by a lack of faith in the capitalist system.

On March 14, 2012, more than three million people read Greg Smith's bombshell Op-Ed in the New York Times titled "Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs." The column immediately went viral, became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, and drew passionate responses from former Fed chairman Paul Volcker, legendary General Electric CEO Jack Welch, and New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg.
His story begins in the summer of 2000, when an idealistic 21-year-old arrives as an intern at Goldman Sachs and learns about the firm's Business Principle #1: Our clients' interests always come first. From the shenanigans of his summer internship during the technology bubble to Las Vegas hot tubs and the excesses of the real estate boom; from the career lifeline he received from an NFL Hall of Famer during the bear market to the day Warren Buffett came to save Goldman Sachs from extinction-Smith will take the reader on his personal journey through the firm, and bring us inside the world's most powerful bank. Smith describes in page-turning detail how the most storied investment bank on Wall Street went from taking iconic companies like Ford, Sears, and Microsoft public to becoming a "vampire squid" that referred to its clients as "muppets" and paid the government a record half-billion dollars to settle SEC charges.
After conversations with nine Goldman Sachs partners over a twelve-month period proved fruitless, Smith came to believe that the only way the system would ever change was for an insider to finally speak out publicly. No story has been more central to America’s history this century than the rise of Barack Obama, and until now, no journalist or historian has written a book that fully investigates the circumstances and experiences of Obama’s life or explores the ambition behind his rise.
Deftly setting Obama’s political career against the galvanizing intersection of race and politics in Chicago’s history, Remnick shows us how that city’s complex racial legacy would make Obama’s forays into politics a source of controversy and bare-knuckle tactics: his clashes with older black politicians in the Illinois State Senate, his disastrous decision to challenge the former Black Panther Bobby Rush for Congress in 2000, the sex scandals that would decimate his more experienced opponents in the 2004 Senate race, and the story—from both sides—of his confrontation with his former pastor, Jeremiah Wright.
The Bridge revisits the American drama of race, from slavery to civil rights, and makes clear how Obama’s quest is not just his own but is emblematic of a nation where destiny is defined by individuals keen to imagine a future that is different from the reality of their current lives. In the early 1960s, Richard Avedon was commissioned by Harper's Bazaar to create Observations, a column that consisted of a series of nine photographic essays. That same day, Avedon created more informal color portraits of Kennedy and his family at the Kennedy compound in Palm Beach. During his lifetime, Richard Avedon donated more than two hundred images to the Smithsonian Institution, including all of the photographs of the Kennedy family sitting for Harper's Bazaar.
In Ike and Dick, Jeffrey Frank rediscovers these two compelling figures with the sensitivity of a novelist and the discipline of a historian. Rocket Girl: The Story of Mary Sherman Morgan, America's First Female Rocket Scientist by George D. This is the extraordinary true story of America's first female rocket scientist, told by her son.
In 1938, a young German rocket enthusiast named Wernher von Braun had dreams of building a rocket that could fly him to the moon. When von Braun and other top engineers could not find a solution to the repeated failures that plagued the nascent US rocket program, North American Aviation, where Mary Sherman Morgan then worked, was given the challenge. Hitler believed himself to be as much an artist as a politician, and his rise to power owed a great deal to the creation of myth around his own personality.
Hitler and the Nazi Cult of Celebrity probes the correlation between art and ambition, shows how films were used as weapons, and uncovers the sexual predilections of the Nazi hierarchy. In Army of Evil: A History of the SS, author Adrian Weale delves into materials not previously available, including recently released intelligence files, the most up-to-date research and rare and never-before-published photographs. Going beyond the myths and characterizations, this comprehensive account reveals the reality of the SS as a cadre of unwavering political fanatics and power-seeking opportunists who slavishly followed an ideology that disdained traditional morality, and were prepared to implement it to the utmost, murderous extreme that ultimately resulted in the Holocaust.
This is a definitive historical narrative of the birth, legacy, and ultimate demise of one of the most feared political and military organizations ever known, and those twisted, cruel men who were responsible for one of the most appalling crimes against humanity in all history.
The twin Allied campaigns against Germany—the USAAF by day, the RAF by night—built up into massive bombing of German industrial areas, notably the Ruhr, followed by attacks directly on cities such as Hamburg, Kassel, Pforzheim, Mainz, Cologne, Bremen, Essen, Dusseldorf, Hanover, Dortmund, Frankfurt, and the still controversial fire-bombing of Hamburg and Dresden.
Petroleum refineries were a key target with USAAF aircraft based in North Africa and later Italy, bombing the massive refinery complexes in and around Ploesti, Romania, until August 1944 when the Soviet Red Army captured the area.
This is the first comprehensive history of America's involvement in the Middle East, from George Washington to George W. From the first cannonballs fired by American warships at North African pirates to the conquest of Falluja by the Marines, and from the early American explorers who probed the sources of the Nile to the diplomats who strove for Arab-Israeli peace, the United States has been dramatically involved in the Middle East. Drawing on thousands of government documents and personal letters, this audiobook reconstructs the diverse and remarkable ways in which Americans have interacted with this alluring yet often hostile land stretching from Morocco to Iran and from the Persian Gulf to the Bosporus. In this groundbreaking epic biography, Douglas Brinkley draws on never-before-published materials to examine the life and achievements of our "naturalist president." By setting aside more than 230 million acres of wild America for posterity between 1901 and 1909, Theodore Roosevelt made conservation a universal endeavor.
Tracing the role that nature played in Roosevelt's storied career, Brinkley brilliantly analyzes the influence that the works of John James Audubon and Charles Darwin had on the young man who would become our twenty-sixth president. Wert shows how the audacity and aggression that fueled Lee’s victories ultimately proved disastrous at Gettysburg. On the basis of flimsy evidence, Dreyfus was placed under arrest for the crime of high treason. In an era when religious conflict, fierce patriotism, and charged debates over national identity pervade the public sphere, the scandal of Captain Dreyfus still has much to teach us. In this vivid and timely history, Juan Cole tells the story of Napoleon's invasion of Egypt.
Cole ultimately reveals how Napoleon's invasion, the first modern attempt to invade the Arab world, invented and crystallized the rhetoric of liberal imperialism.
Rushdie had the Ayatollah, Job had God, and James Ladsun has Nasreen—at least that's what he calls her in Give Me Everything You Have—the former creative-writing student who harassed him for five years and is apparently still at it. Garrett, the Sheriff of Lincoln County and Billy’s ultimate arbiter of justice, provides an incredible, firsthand account of the small-town kid who became a killer in The Authentic Life of Billy the Kid. In an age when most history that is presented to the masses is whitewashed or made politically correct it is quite refreshing to read a historical narrative "warts and all" about a period in American History that many want to forget about or gloss over. Solomon Northup was an educated, free black man from upstate New York with a wife and children in the 1841 when through a chain of events ended up being kidnapped and sold into slavery.
What stands out in this book to me are the descriptions of the various people he met and how they treated him from being very kind and gracious to vile and wicked. Solomon then went on to spend the rest of his time in captivity with another brutal slave owner.


If you want to read about slavery as it was and not in glossed over terms or political correct terms then this book is for you. When they were too impoverished to raise their families, ancient Sumerians sold their children into bondage. Five Thousand Years of Slavery provides the suspense and emotional engagement of a great novel.

Ace on the River is designed to improve the play of everyone from beginners to seasoned professionals. Kevin Patterson won international accolades for his wonderfully observed and moving memoir, The Water in Between. An international bestseller and the basis for a hugely successful film, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was one of the defining works of the 1960s. A mordant, wickedly subversive parable set in a mental ward, the novel chronicles the head-on collision between its hell-raising, life-affirming hero Randle Patrick McMurphy and the totalitarian rule of Big Nurse. With One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Kesey created a work without precedent in American literature, a novel at once comic and tragic that probes the nature of madness and sanity, authority and vitality.

The government is lying to us about our economic conditions because they are the ones who are causing it.
Today, the "Dollar Devaluation Depression" is being caused by the government trying to solve all of our social, military, political and economic problems by coming up with incompetent, ridiculous over-priced solutions and merely printing more money to pay for them.
This is the only way to ensure a viable and healthy food supply and income that grows faster than the Dollar Devaluation so that your family will always eat and maintain their homes, while all others around you are going bust.
Mostly, though, it hit a nerve among the general public who question the role of Wall Street in society -- and the callous "take-the-money-and-run" mentality that brought the world economy to its knees a few short years ago. He shows the evolution of Wall Street into an industry riddled with conflicts of interest and a profit-at-all-costs mentality: a perfectly rigged game at the expense of the economy and the society at large. Those familiar with Obama’s own best-selling memoir or his campaign speeches know the touchstones and details that he chooses to emphasize, but now—from a writer whose gift for illuminating the historical significance of unfolding events is without peer—we have a portrait, at once masterly and fresh, nuanced and unexpected, of a young man in search of himself, and of a rising politician determined to become the first African-American president.
Through extensive on-the-record interviews with friends and teachers, mentors and disparagers, family members and Obama himself, David Remnick allows us to see how a rootless, unaccomplished, and confused young man created himself first as a community organizer in Chicago, an experience that would not only shape his urge to work in politics but give him a home and a community, and that would propel him to Harvard Law School, where his sense of a greater mission emerged. By looking at Obama’s political rise through the prism of our racial history, Remnick gives us the conflicting agendas of black politicians: the dilemmas of men like Jesse Jackson, John Lewis, and Joseph Lowery, heroes of the civil rights movement, who are forced to reassess old loyalties and understand the priorities of a new generation of African-American leaders. One of these images ran as the cover of LOOK magazine's February 28 issue, with photographs by Avedon inside. Smithsonian curator Shannon Thomas Perich has culled more than seventy-five images from that donation for The Kennedys: Portrait of a Family, making these stunning photographs available for view for the first time. Eisenhower and Richard Nixon had a political and private relationship that lasted nearly twenty years, a tie that survived hurtful slights, tense misunderstandings, and the distance between them in age and temperament. He offers a fresh view of the younger Nixon as a striving tactician, as well as the ever more perplexing person that he became.
Ike and Dick, informed by dozens of interviews and deep archival research, traces the path of their relationship in a dangerous world of recurring crises as Nixon’s ambitions grew and Eisenhower was struck by a series of debilitating illnesses.
It describes Mary Sherman Morgan's crucial contribution to launching America's first satellite and the author's labyrinthine journey to uncover his mother's lost legacy - a legacy buried deep under a lifetime of secrets political, technological, and personal.
On the opposite side of the world, a young farm girl named Mary Sherman was attending high school in Ray, North Dakota.
Recognizing her talent for chemistry, company management turned the assignment over to young Mary.
In his Germany politics and culture became one, the cult of celebrity nurtured and driven by Hitler and his acolyte Joseph Goebbels.
It also brings to light previously unpublished information about the ‘Hitler film’ Goebbels saw as ‘the greatest story ever told’, which was in the planning even as Hitler himself was heading for his own Wagnerian finale. Yet by the end of 1935, the SS had taken control of all police and internal security duties in Germany—ranging from local village “gendarmes” all they way up to the secret political police and the Gestapo. For well over two centuries, American statesmen, merchants, and missionaries, both men and women, have had a profound impact on the shaping of this crucial region.
Covering over 230 years of history, Power, Faith, and Fantasy is an indispensable work for anyone interested in understanding the roots of America's Middle East involvement today. With descriptive flair, the author illuminates Roosevelt's bird watching in the Adirondacks, wildlife obsession in Yellowstone, hikes in the Blue Ridge Mountains, ranching in the Dakota Territory, hunting in the Big Horn Mountains, and outdoor romps through Idaho and Wyoming.
Lee took command of the Army of Northern Virginia on June 1, 1862, until the Battle of Gettysburg thirteen months later, the Confederate army compiled a record of military achievement almost unparalleled in our nation’s history. But, as Wert explains, Lee had little choice: outnumbered by an opponent with superior resources, he had to take the fight to the enemy in order to win. The German military attache in Paris receives a visit from a seedy-looking man who claims to be a French army officer in desperate need of money, offering to sell them military secrets. Reserved yet intelligent and ambitious, Dreyfus had everything: a family, money, and a clear path to a prestigious post on the General Staff. Not long afterward, he was sentenced to spend the rest of his life on the legendary, lethal Devil's Island. In the hands of prizewinning novelist, biographer, and narrative historian Piers Paul Read, this real-life morality tale comes alive for a new generation. Revealing the young general's reasons for leading the expedition against Egypt in 1798 and showcasing his fascinating views of the Orient, Cole delves into the psychology of the military titan and his entourage. James Lasdun’s account, while terrifying, is told with compassion and humor, and brilliantly succeeds in turning a highly personal story into a profound meditation on subjects as varied as madness, race, Middle East politics, and the meaning of honor and reputation in the Internet age.
Bonney, Billy the Kid—as he soon became known—started his criminal career at the age of twelve by stabbing a man in a bar fight. Written just eight months after killing Billy in Fort Sumner, New Mexico, during a happenstance meeting in the home of Pete Maxwell, this fascinating, sensational book takes us play-by-play through Billy’s life. He eventually ended up deep in Louisiana and spent the next 12 years of his life there until he was rescued by a prominent citizen of his home state that knew him. Most of the books I read I never bother to write a review on unless I found them to be a good read and this is a good read!
Working in one of the country's busiest control rooms, it is her job to stay on the phone until the ambulance arrives, and to give instructions that could save your life.

Greeted by unanimous acclaim when it was first published, the book has become and enduring favorite of readers.

The search for meaning at work offers us both formidable challenges and ample opportunities. His brain imaging work has taught him that our brains typically become less active with age and we become more vulnerable to memory problems and depression. Knowing the best way to build muscle—and knowing why it’s the best way—can mean the difference between a lifelong devotion to exercise and a fabulously fit body, or giving up in frustration. Keep a slight arch in the back while performing a dead lift, and do so by keeping the head up.
Luckily, there are ways to both prevent and relieve back pain—and they're detailed in Healthy Back Anatomy. And when the two of you don’t see eye-to-eye on how much to spend or how much to save, that’s when arguments turn into ugly toxic fights that leave both persons feeling hurt and angry. Each of the book's chapters presents a lesson from the exuberant and always challenging master - and a profit paradigm that will open your mind to the many ways to make profit happen. And this is causing the unacceptable rates of food, housing and energy inflation we're experiencing now. Just before the magazine hit the newsstands and was delivered to over 6.5 million people, a set of photographs, comprised mostly of the LOOK images, was released by the White House and appeared in newspapers across the country.
Perich's introductory essay--accompanied by a wealth of archival photographs of both Avedon and the Kennedy family--provides historical background on the two sittings within a political and cultural context and critically examines the work of one of the finest photographers of the twentieth century. Yet the two men brought out the best and worst in each other, and their association had important consequences for their respective presidencies. He portrays Eisenhower, the legendary soldier, as a cold, even vain man with a warm smile whose sound instincts about war and peace far outpaced his understanding of the changes occurring in his own country. And, as the 1968 election cycle approached and the war in Vietnam roiled the country, it shows why Eisenhower, mortally ill and despite his doubts, supported Nixon’s final attempt to win the White House, a change influenced by a family matter: his grandson David’s courtship of Nixon’s daughter Julie—teenagers in love who understood the political stakes of their union. Blending a fascinating personal history with dramatic historical events taking place on the world stage, this compelling narrative brings long-overdue attention to a modest but brilliant woman whose work proved essential for America's early space program. In the end, America succeeded in launching rockets into space, but only because of the joint efforts of the brilliant farm girl from North Dakota and the famous German scientist. In their version of Hollywood there were scandals, starlets, secret agents, premieres and the infamous ‘casting couch’. And by 1944 the militarized Waffen SS had more than eight hundred thousand men serving in the field, even rivaling Germany’s regular armed forces, the Wehrmacht. He also profiles Roosevelt's incredible circle of naturalist friends, including the Catskills poet John Burroughs, Boone and Crockett Club cofounder George Bird Grinnell, forestry zealot Gifford Pinchot, buffalo breeder William Hornaday, Sierra Club founder John Muir, U.S. As we face the problems of global warming, overpopulation, and sustainable land management, this imposing leader's stout resolution to protect our environment is an inspiration and a contemporary call to arms for us all.
How it happened—the relative contributions of Lee, his top command, opposing Union generals, and of course the rebel army itself—is the subject of Civil War historian Jeffry D.
The saga of Dreyfus's many trials-he was not exonerated until 1906, twelve years after first being arrested-the fight to free him, and the intrigues on both sides, is a fast-moving mystery story rife with heroes and villains, loose women, loyal wives, bisexual men, tricksters, and charlatans.
He paints a multi-faceted portrait of the daily travails of the soldiers in Napoleon's army, including how they imagined Egypt, how their expectations differed from what they found, and how they grappled with military challenges in a foreign land. Ladsun's misfortune was to encounter someone whose obsessions he ignited, and who refused to let him off the hook for it. He then moved on to stealing horses, gambling, participating in the Lincoln County War, and even perpetrating mass murder. Even the most illiterate and uneducated slave Solomon met yearned for freedom, as is human nature to do so. After one of these fights he fled into the swamp being chased by his owner and several other slave owners with their bloodhounds. Solomon's rescue came when a Canadian drifter who worked as a laborer agreed to mail a rescue note to Solomon's home town. Much more than a reference work, it is a brilliant exploration of the worst - and the best - in human society. This compilation of philosophies and real-table scenarios provides a rare chance to see the pоker world through the eyes of someone who lives it.
There are also special chapters for advanced players on how to beat online games and an inside look at tournament play. They flee to the freedom of the big cities of the world and the far corners of Canada, but many end up feeling rootless and alone, whether as a physician in an Arctic Inuit community, a temporary boyfriend in Paris, or a student in the McGill Ghetto.
Prisoners of Our Thoughts makes Frankl's seminal work accessible and relevant, opening up new opportunities for finding personal meaning through work and living an authentic life. Yet, one of the most exciting lessons he has learned is that with a little forethought and a brain-smart plan, you can slow, or even reverse, the aging process in the brain. And, when you're ready, you'll even have modifications to make the moves harder and challenge yourself further.
A foreword by Robert Dallek, distinguished historian and author of the bet-selling An Unfinished Life: John F. A decade later the dreams of these two disparate individuals would merge in ways neither could have imagined. Army Air Forces) and British (RAF Bomber Command) strategic aerial campaigns against Germany, this book covers German use of strategic bombing during the Nazi’s conquest of Europe: the Battle of Britain, Operation Barbarossa, and the V 1 and V 2, where the Luftwaffe targeted Warsaw and Rotterdam (known as the Rotterdam Blitz). Many of them came from the impoverished Catholic aristocracy and disliked Dreyfus because he was rich, bourgeois, and, above all, a Jew. Usually, we call such people crazy ("borderline personality" was one informal diagnosis here), but as much as Nasreen's projections derailed him, Ladsun is too attuned to the difficulties of libidinal self-management—his own and hers—to let himself entirely off the hook, either.
Billy the Kid’s extraordinary exploits were followed in newspapers around the country, and his legend reached epic heights. That being said there were several decent southern slave owners described in the book who treated their slaves well.
His description of the bloodhounds following him into the swamp and him seeing all of the snakes and alligators was quite interesting. The characters attempt to unravel the impossible puzzles of adulthood -- searching for answers by hurtling over falls in a barrel, building a boat to escape a teen-daughter-gone-bad, or embarking on an unlikely affair with a two-bit wrestler. Kennedy, 1917-1963, provides authoritative and compelling insight to one of the most fascinating presidents in American history. In a vivid narrative, Morgan relates how World War II and the Cold War space race with the Russians changed the fates of both von Braun and his mother. In addition, the book covers the blitzes against London and the bombing of other British industrial and port cities, such as Birmingham, Liverpool, Southampton, Manchester, Bristol, Belfast, Cardiff, and Coventry bombed during the Battle of Britain.
The anti-Semitism and deceit on display in the Dreyfus case was an ominous prelude to the Holocaust and the long, bloody twentieth century to come. Ladsun has written a perversely lovely account of what happens when one of them manages to burrow far too deeply into her teacher's imaginative life and make mayhem. One of them William Ford, almost certainly saved Solomon from being lynched by his new owner.
The reason this crisis has not been addressed is because it has never been identified, defined, or given a name. His executive orders saved such treasures as Devils Tower, the Grand Canyon, and the Petrified Forest.
Now, in this invaluable book, the world-renowned “Dean of Innovation,” Jeff DeGraff, shares his tried-and-true techniques on how to reinvent yourself—creatively and with maximum impact. The aforementioned William Ford saved Solomon from the carpenter's wrath after this episode.
