  • From Gettysburg to Golan

    Synopsis
    Two great battles, two historic outcomes: Defeat in either would have changed the destiny of America and Israel. In this riveting comparative history, From Gettysburg to Golan, Lieutenant Colonel Barry Spielman shows for the first time the extraordinary similarities between the battles of Gettysburg (1863) and Golan Heights (1973). In both battles, holding the high ground would prove vital; in both, the defenders (the Union and Israeli armies) would rapidly shift their forces from one position to the next to hold off and ultimately defeat the ferocious enemy attacks that threatened to overwhelm them. The stakes were incredibly high. Had they lost, the Union may have been forced to cede defeat to the South, and the United States would have fallen apart, irrevocably altering the history of the world; Israel would have been cut in half and destroyed. By moving between the two theatres of war as the battles progressed, Spielman delivers a gripping, blow-by-blow account of how Gettysburg and Golan were won - and the lessons they share.

    Synopsis
    What is the GDP, and what does it mean? Why does the stock market go down when interest rates go up? What causes a dreaded recession? Economics impacts everyone's life, but most people take on faith what they read in the newspaper. Now, for anyone who doesn't know much about economics, noted economist Todd Buchholz explains it all simply and clearly. With refreshing wit and irreverence, Buchholz takes listeners by the hand and reveals the basic rules behind everything from food prices to trade deficits. Instead of complicated graphs and charts he uses examples from contemporary life and popular culture to demonstrate the principles at work. By cutting through the arcane musings of academicians, the jargon of analysts and advisors, and the rhetoric of politicians, he gives us a precise and accessible understanding of economic ideas, actions, and consequences as they actually exist in the here and now. Here are some of the heretofore unintelligible ideas he helps us to understand: what causes or combats inflation, and why it is so feared; what moves stocks and bonds up and down-and how to invest wisely and safely; whether it is good or bad to 'protect' America from foreign goods-and what happens when we do and when we don't; what exactly Social Security is, and whether government spending is good or bad-and how dangerous the national debt is or isn't. In today's confusing economic climate, it has never been more important for everyone from homemakers to small-business owners to individual investors and middle managers to understand the forces at work.

    Synopsis
    When the Dalai Lama was forced to go into exile in 1959, he could take only a few items with him. Among these cherished belongings was his copy of Tsong-kha-pa's classic text The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. This text distills all of the essential points of Tibetan Buddhism, clearly unfolding the entire Buddhist path to enlightenment. In 2008, celebrating the long-awaited completion of the English-language translation of The Great Treatise, the Dalai Lama gave a historic six-day teaching at Lehigh University to explain the meaning of this classic text and to underscore its importance. It is the longest teaching that he has ever given to Westerners on just one text, and Westerners have never before had the opportunity to receive such a complete teaching that encompasses the totality of the Buddhist path from the Dalai Lama. From Here to Enlightenment makes the teachings from this momentous event available for a wider audience.

    Synopsis
    Diamond Head, Hawaii, 1941. Pvt. Robert E. Lee Prewitt is a champion welterweight and a fine bugler. But when he refuses to join the company's boxing team, he gets 'the treatment' that may break him or kill him. First Sgt. Milton Anthony Warden knows how to soldier better than almost anyone, yet he's risking his career to have an affair with the commanding officer's wife. Both Warden and Prewitt are bound by a common bond: the Army is their heart and blood…and, possibly, their death. In this magnificent but brutal classic of a soldier's life, James Jones portrays the courage, violence, and passions of men and women who live by unspoken codes and with unutterable despair. The most important American novel to come out of World War II, this is a masterpiece that captures as no other the honor and savagery of men.

    Synopsis
    *** A USA TODAY BESTSELLER***The practical, nonpartisan guide to making our retirement savings systems work for America's people, our economy, and the nation at largeAt a time of fierce political divisiveness, From Here to Security is a refreshingly balanced, non-ideological guide to solving what may be our nation's most pressing policy challenge: achieving retirement security for all.  A pioneer of the 401(k) system, Robert L. Reynolds eschews radical calls for throwing out the 401(k) entirely and creating a new government-run savings system. Our best course, he shows, is to build on what we have: a flexible, dynamic private-public system of Social Security and more robust workplace savings. From Here to Security provides a clear, powerful new approach to solving America's retirement challenge – based on facts, data, and Reynolds' decades of experience.  While fear-mongers claim that the U.S. retirement system is on the verge of collapse; Reynolds shows why our system is actually the envy of the world. But From Here to Security is no status quo book.  Reynolds lays out an action agenda to dramatically improve our retirement systems – public and private – lift our savings rate, improve people's retirement prospects, spur faster growth – and reboot America's national morale.

    Synopsis
    Impossible Goals, Inevitable Successes Why are you struggling to grow your business when everyone else seems to be crushing their goals? If you needed to triple revenue within the next three years, would you know exactly how to do it? Doubling the size of your business, tripling it, even growing 10 times larger isn't about magic. It's not about privileges, luck, or working harder. There's a template that the world's fastest growing companies follow to achieve and sustain much, much faster growth. From Impossible to Inevitable details the hyper-growth playbook of companies like the record-breaking Zenefits (which skyrocketed from $1 million to $100 million in two years); Salesforce.com (the fastest growing multibillion-dollar software company); and EchoSign, aka Adobe Document Services (which catapulted from $0 to $144 million in seven years). Whether you have a $1 billion or a $100,000 business, you can use the same insights as these notable companies to learn what it really takes to break your own revenue records. For instance, one of the authors shows how he grew his income from $67,000 to $720,000 in four years while maintaining a 20 to 30 hour work week and welcoming a new child - nine times. This book shows you how to surpass plateaus and get off of the up-and-down revenue roller coaster by answering three questions about growing revenue by 10 times: Why aren't you growing faster? What does it take to get to hyper-growth? How do you sustain growth? This powerful, effective book provides a template for you to kick off your biggest growth spurt yet.

Develop a culture of initiative, not adequacy, by embracing employee ownership. Employees, you are too accepting of reality and too eager to quit. You can define your destiny to make a difference, for yourself and your company, no matter what you do or where you work.The authors take each ingredient and break it down into specific steps to guide you through implementation. From Impossible to Inevitable helps you take impossible goals and turn them into inevitable successes for your business and team.

    Synopsis
    As Meredith, an academic, stands in a Bloomsbury tobacconist waiting for his two ounces of tobacco, he murmurs a verse of ‘London, a Poem’ and is astounded when a trap door opens into the London Catacombs, bringing him face to face with the Horton Venus, by Titian. From then on he is trapped in a maze of the illicit art trade, in the company of the redoubtable Jane Halliwell. About the Author: Born in Edinburgh in 1906, the son of the city's Director of Education, John Innes Mackintosh Stewart wrote a highly successful series of mystery stories under the pseudonym Michael Innes. Innes was educated at Oriel College, Oxford, where he was presented with the Matthew Arnold Memorial Prize and named a Bishop Frazer's scholar. After graduation he went to Vienna, to study Freudian psychoanalysis for a year and following his first book, an edition of Florio's translation of Montaigne, was offered a lectureship at the University of Leeds. In 1932 he married Margaret Hardwick, a doctor, and they subsequently had five children including Angus, also a novelist. The year 1936 saw Innes as Professor of English at the University of Adelaide, during which tenure he wrote his first mystery story, Death at the President's Lodging. With his second, Hamlet Revenge, Innes firmly established his reputation as a highly entertaining and cultivated writer. After the end of World War II, Innes returned to the UK and spent two years at Queen's University, Belfast where in 1949 he wrote the Journeying Boy, a novel notable for the richly comedic use of an Irish setting. He then settled down as a Reader in English Literature at Christ Church, Oxford, from which he retired in 1973. His most famous character is 'John Appleby', who inspired a penchant for donnish detective fiction that lasts to this day. Innes's other well-known character is 'Honeybath', the painter and rather reluctant detective, who first appeared in 1975 in The Mysterious Commission. The last novel, Appleby and the Ospreys, was published in 1986, some eight years before his death in 1994.

    Synopsis
    A father creates a remarkable coming-of-age gift for his daughter: stories of love, wisdom, and family that have guided his path through life as she prepares to embark on her own. How does a father tell his child how to live a meaningful life? How does father tell his child how to avoid the mistakes he made? How does a father tell his child how much he loves her?

As an immigrant child from Uruguay, he started with nothing but the support of his principled and hard-working family, and a strong desire to make something of himself. When his youngest daughter, Mackenzie, turned 11, Norm wanted to share some of his well-earned life lessons with her and to share some of their family history. But 11-year-old little girls aren't always ready to hear what their fathers have to say. Instead, he wrote her letters, one each week for a year, as a memoir that they could one day savor together when she was ready. He shares powerful stories from his life and hers, lessons he learned, mistakes he made. He warns her of pitfalls and of people to avoid. He tells her how to ask for help when she needs it, and how to help when she recognizes that need in others. He tells her how to spot a business scam, how to negotiate for herself and others, how to navigate difficult times, and how to find both faith and purpose in life. He passes down some family lore about how he met her mother, about the day she was born, about her grandparents, about her great-grandparents, and more. And in every letter, he tells her how much he loves her. Norm is now ready to share this book with Mackenzie - and with the world.

    Synopsis
    Build a better financial future for yourself and the world. Former monk turned financial advisor, Doug Lynam, shares the rules of money management that will change your approach to earning, saving, and investing. From Monk to Money Manager is an entertaining and self-deprecating journey through Lynam’s relationship with the almighty dollar—his childhood in a rich family, the long-haired hippie days running away from materialism, time in the Marine Corps looking for selfless service, and his twenty years in the monastery under a vow of poverty that led to his current profession as a financial advisor. In this unique look at wealth from a spiritual perspective, Lynam shares his belief that God doesn’t expect us to live in poverty. The truth is, we need financial peace so we can help others. When money becomes a part of our spiritual practice, used in love and service, it can bring us closer to our highest spiritual ideals. With humor and humility, Lynam uses stories told through the lens of his own money mistakes, and those of counseling clients, to understand how our attitudes about money hold us back. He also provides clear, step-by-step guidance on how to grow a little bit wealthy. His insights include how to build a compassionate relationship to our finances; some of the good, bad, and ugly truths about money; and the tricks to unlocking financial freedom.

    When alpha female Galina Sudenko agreed to attend her distant cousin's birthday party, she wasn't counting on meeting the devastatingly handsome and powerful rom alpha Andrey Lupesco or having her sexy times with him interrupted by the murder of her idiot brother-in-law, Sergei. But such is life when your father is one of the most powerful werewolves within Seattle's supernatural Russian organized crime syndicate. Not content with being just a pretty face and good breeding stock, Galina sets out to make her mark within the family. But in doing so, she runs afoul of her eldest brother, Alexei, the heir apparent to the family dynasty. He has no intention of ceding his position without a fight. Andrey and Galina's burgeoning romance is threatened when she discovers that before his death, Irina's husband, Sergei, hijacked Andrey's shipment of the werewolf drug bullet, a synthetic drug that gives the supernatural creatures a cocaine-like high. Sergei's theft means that Andrey had a reason to have Sergei killed, leaving Galina to decide whether to risk trusting Andrey even as her feelings for him deepen. As her brother Alexei's behavior becomes more erratic, Galina must find the missing shipment, prove to her family that she'll be a capable leader, and decide whether her lover, Andrey, can be trusted before she can hope to challenge her brother for his position as head of the family. A tale full of sexy werewolves, forbidden love, family power struggles, and danger closing in, Gia Corona and Jacey Conrad's From Russia with Claws will leave you howling for more!
