Summary

It was a soul-deep longing, one that got into his bones and settled there, sending whispers of desire through him. The need, the hunger, grew tenfold with every breath....  As a Dragon King, Roman is sworn to protect all mortals - even though they no longer believe in dragons. But deep in the Carpathian Mountains, he discovers a beautiful and mysterious gypsy who possesses the power to see into his very soul. To reignite the fire in his heart. And to help him find the long-lost sword that could save the dragons forever....  Sabina remembers the stories her grandmother told her. Legends of dragons and kings, fire and ice. She's never forgotten the dark prophecy that filled her ancestors with fear - a fate they tried to prevent by stealing a Dragon King's sword.  Sabina knows helping Roman is dangerous. He is a dragon betrayed and more powerful than any man. He could destroy her in a single fiery embrace. But how can she resist the longing in his eyes - or the feelings in her heart - when their destinies are bound by desire?   Contains mature themes.

Chasing Love

Summary

The music we listen to, the movies we watch - they're all telling us to keep chasing love and that we'll finally be happy when we find it. But is love really all we need?   The love that the world tells us to pursue is all about self, about following your heart’s desires. But what is the Christian worldview on love? When we follow Jesus, we realize that he invites us to reorient the focus of our lives, so instead of chasing love primarily for our own happiness, we are first and foremost to give love - to God and to others.   In Chasing Love, Sean McDowell will invite listeners into Jesus’ radical, upside-down approach to love, and in doing so, he’ll answer some of the toughest questions we’re asking about love today: How does Jesus speak to singleness? What does the Gospel say about LGBTQ issues? Can sexual sin truly be forgiven? What if I’m not happy in my marriage?

The Start-Up J Curve

Summary

A predictable pattern of success, this book provides a clear roadmap for entrepreneurs that shows them where they are and what to do in order to advance their start-up. After founding or co-founding over 15 start-ups and investing in another 50 early stage ventures as an angel investor, author Howard Love came to understand that a start-up unfolds in a predictable pattern. The more aware entrepreneurs are of this pattern, the better able they will be to capitalize on it. Love calls this pattern the start-up J Curve. The toughest part of the endeavor is the time between the actual start of a new business and when the product and model are firmly established. The Start-Up J Curve gives entrepreneurs the tools they need to get through the early challenges so they can reach the primary value creation that lies beyond. Love brings 35 years of start-up experience to this comprehensive guide to starting a business. He outlines the six predictable stages of start-up growth and details the activities that should be undertaken at each stage to ensure success and to avoid common pitfalls. Instead of feeling lost and confused after a setback, start-up founders and investors can anticipate the challenges, overcome the obstacles, and ride the curve to the top.

Summary

The epic memoir of an Alaskan pararescue jumper, Special Forces Operator, and decorated war hero. "That Others May Live" is a mantra that defines the fearless men of Alaska's 212th Pararescue Unit, the PJs, one of the most elite military forces on the planet. Whether they are rescuing citizens injured and freezing in the Alaskan wilderness or saving wounded Rangers and SEALs in blazing firefights at war, the PJs are the least known and most highly trained of America's warriors. Never Quit is the true story of how Jimmy Settle, an Alaskan shoe-store clerk, became a Special Forces Operator and war hero. After being shot in the head during a dangerous high mountain operation in the rugged Watapur Valley in Afghanistan, Jimmy returns to battle with his teammates for a heroic rescue, the bullet fragments stitched over and still in his skull. In a cross between a suicide rescue mission and an against-all-odds mountain battle, his team of PJs risk their lives again in an epic firefight. When his helicopter is hit and begins leaking fuel, Jimmy finds himself in the worst possible position as a rescue specialist - forced to leave members from his own team behind. Jimmy will have to risk everything to get back into the battle and bring back his brothers. From death-defying Alaskan wilderness training, wild rescues, and vicious battles against the Taliban, this is an explosive special operations memoir unlike any that has come before and the true story of a man from humble beginnings who became an American hero.

Obsession

Summary

From the moment Donald Trump was elected president - even before he was inaugurated - Democrats called for his impeachment. That call, starting on the margins of the party and the press, steadily grew until it became a deafening media and Democratic obsession. It culminated first in the Mueller report - which failed to find any evidence of criminal wrongdoing on the part of the president - and then in a failed impeachment. And yet, even now, the Democrats and their media allies insist that President Trump must be guilty of something. They still accuse him of being a Russian stooge and an obstructer of justice. They claim he was “not exonerated” by the Mueller report. But the truth, as veteran reporter Byron York makes clear - using his unequaled access to sources inside Congress and the White House - is that Democrats and the media were gripped by an anti-Trump hysteria that blinded them to reality.  In a fast-moving story of real-life Washington intrigue, York reveals: Why Donald Trump - at first - resisted advice to fire FBI director James Comey The strategy behind the Trump defense team’s full cooperation with Mueller’s investigators - and how they felt betrayed by Mueller How the Mueller team knew very early in the investigation that there was no evidence of “Russian collusion” Why the Trump defense team began to suspect that Mueller was not really in charge of the special counsel investigation Why Nancy Pelosi gave up trying to restrain her impeachment-obsessed party Why Trump’s lawyers - certain of his innocence in the Mueller investigation - were even less worried about the Democrats' Ukraine investigation. Byron York takes you inside the deliberations of the president’s defense counsel, interviews congressional Republicans who were shocked at the extremism of their Democratic colleagues - and resolute in opposing them - and draws an unforgettable portrait of an administration under siege from an implacable - and obsessed - opposition party.

Summary

Best-selling author Dr. Josh Axe explains how to treat more than 70 diseases, lose weight, and increase vitality with traditional healing practices passed down through the ages. Long before the first pharmaceutical companies opened their doors in the 1850s, doctors treated people, not symptoms. And although we've become used to popping pills, Americans have finally had it with the dangerous side effects, addiction, and over-prescribing - and they're desperate for an alternative.  Here's the good news: That alternative has been here all along in the form of ancient treatments used for eons in traditional Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Greek medicine. Ancient Remedies is the first comprehensive layman's guide that will bring together and explain to the masses the very best of these time-tested practices.  In Ancient Remedies, Dr. Axe explores the foundational concepts of ancient healing - eating right for your type and living in sync with your circadian clock. Listeners will learn how traditional practitioners identified the root cause of each patient's illness, then treated it with medicinal herbs, mushrooms, CBD, essential oils, and restorative mind-body practices. What's more, they'll discover how they can use these ancient treatments themselves to cope with dozens of diseases, from ADHD to diabetes, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease, and beyond.  Through engaging language and accessible explanations, Ancient Remedies teaches listeners everything they need to know about getting, and staying, healthy - without toxic, costly synthetic drugs.   PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

How to Day Trade for a Living

Summary

Very few careers can offer you the freedom, flexibility and income that active trading does. As a trader, you can live and work anywhere in the world. You can decide when to work and when not to work. You may only answer to yourself. That is the life of a successful day trader; but it is not easy to achieve and very few succeed. In the audiobook, I describe the fundamentals of day trading, explain how day trading is different from other styles of trading and investment, and elaborate on important trading strategies that many traders use every day. I've kept the audiobook short so you can actually finish listening to it and not get bored by the middle. For beginner traders, this audiobook gives you an understanding of where to start, how to start, what to expect from day trading, and how to develop your strategy. Simply listening to this audiobook, however, will not make you a profitable trader. Profit in trading does not come with listening to an audiobook or two or browsing online. It comes with practice, the right tools, and software and appropriate ongoing education. Intermediate traders may benefit from the audiobook's extensive overview of some of the classic strategies that the majority of retail traders regularly use with proven success. If you think you are beyond the stage of a novice trader, then you may want to jump ahead and start reading from section number seven for an overview of the most important day trading strategies: Day trading is not gambling or a hobby. You must approach trading very, very seriously. As such, I wake up early, go for a run, take a shower, get dressed, eat breakfast, and fire up my trading station before the markets open in New York. I am awake. I am alert. I am motivated when I sit down and start working on the list of stocks I will watch that day. This morning routine has tremendously helped my mental preparation for coming into the market. Whatever your routine is, starting the morning in a similar fashion will pay invaluable dividends. ABCD Pattern Trading Bull Flag Momentum Trading Top Reversal Trading Bottom Reversal Trading Moving Average Trend Trading VWAP Trading Support and Resistance Trading For each strategy, I explain: How to find the Stock in Play for trade What indicators I am using on my charts When I enter the trade When I exit the trade (profit taking) What is my stop loss Day trading is not gambling. It’s not an online poker game. To be successful at day trading you need the right tools and you need to be motivated, to work hard, and to persevere. That’s How to Day Trade for a Living.

American Awakening

1 rating

Summary

In American Awakening, Joshua Mitchell compares today’s secular politics of identity - skin tone, gender, and sexuality - to the religious awakenings of America’s past. The book asks where the clerisy of identity politics came from, how identity politics claimed a death grip on liberalism, and how can it be defeated. We are living in the midst of an American awakening, without God and without forgiveness. The first two awakenings brought religious renewal; the third - the social gospel movement and its aftermath (1880-1910) - invoked the authority of religion to bring about political and social transformation, but lost sight of Christianity along the way. The awakening through which we are now living comprehends politics through the categories of religion without recognizing it, has no place for the God who judges or the God who forgives, and has brought America to a dead end, beyond which no one can see. Identity politics renders judgment not based on sins of omission and commission, but on the publicly visible, unalterable attributes that precede whatever citizens might do or leave undone. Identity politics offers no forgiveness for transgressions, because they are irredeemable. Liberal politics was once concerned with working together to build a common world. Identity politics has transformed politics. It has turned politics into a religious venue of sacrificial offering. For the moment, the irredeemable scapegoat is the White, heterosexual, man. After he is humiliated and purged, on whom will innocent victims turn their cathartic rage? White women? Black men? Identity politics is the antiegalitarian spiritual eugenics of our age. It demands that pure and innocent groups ascend, and the stained transgressor groups be purged. If religious revivals are understood as collective efforts to redeem a stained world, then identity politics is an American religious revival - this time around, without God.

Summary

In the old days, when we made physical products, setting project goals wasn’t that hard. But in today’s service - and software-driven world, “done” is less obvious. When is Amazon done? When is Google done? Or Facebook? In reality, services powered by digital systems are never done. So then how do we give teams a goal that they can work on? Mostly, we simply ask teams to build features - but features are the wrong way to go. We often build features that create no value. Instead, we need to give teams an outcome to achieve. Using outcomes creates focus and alignment. It eliminates needless work. And it puts the customer at the center of everything you do. Setting goals as outcomes sounds simple, but it can be hard to do in practice. This book is a practical guide to using outcomes to guide the work of your team.

Primetime Propaganda

22 ratings

Summary

Primetime Propaganda is the story of how television has been used over the past 60 years by Hollywood writers, producers, actors, and executives to promote their liberal ideals, to push the envelope on social and political issues, and to shape America in their own leftist image. In this thoroughly researched and detailed history of the television industry, the conservative columnist and best-selling author Ben Shapiro argues that left-leaning entertainment kingpins in Los Angeles and New York have leveraged - and continue to use - their positions and power to push liberal messages and to promote the Democratic Party while actively discriminating against their opponents on the right. According to Shapiro, television isn't just about entertainment - it's an attempt to convince Americans that the social, economic, and foreign policy shaped by leftism is morally righteous. But don't take his word for it. Shapiro interviewed more than 100 of the industry's biggest players, including Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H), Marta Kauffman (Friends), David Shore (House), and Mark Burnett (Survivor). Many of these insiders boast that not only is Hollywood biased against conservatives, but that many of the shows being broadcast have secret political messages. After hearing this groundbreaking exposé, listeners will never watch television the same way again.

Summary

When parents send their children off to college, Mom and Dad hope they'll return more cultivated, knowledgeable, and astute - able to see issues from all points of view. But, according to Ben Shapiro, there's only one view allowed on most college campuses: a rabid brand of liberalism that must be swallowed hook, line, and sinker. In this explosive exposé, Ben Shapiro, a UCLA graduate, reveals how America's university system is one of the largest brainwashing machines on the planet. Examining this nationwide problem from firsthand experience, Shapiro shows how the leftists who dominate the universities - from the administration to the student government, from the professors to the student media - use their power to mold impressionable minds. Fresh and bitterly funny, this book proves that the universities, far from being a place for open discussion, are really dungeons of the mind that indoctrinate students to become socialists, atheists, race baiters, and narcissists.

Summary

Not all the folks who roamed the Old West were cowhands, rustlers, or cardsharps. And they certainly weren't all heroes. Give-a-Damn Jones, a free-spirited itinerant typographer, hates his nickname almost as much as the rumors spread about him. He's a kind soul who keeps finding himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. That's what happened in Box Elder, a small Montana town. Tensions are running high, and anything -or anyone - could be the fuse to ignite them: a recently released convict trying to prove his innocence, a prominent cattleman who craves respect at any cost, a wily traveling dentist at odds with a violent local blacksmith, or a firebrand of an editor who is determined to unlock the town's secrets. Jones walks into the middle of it all, and this time, he may be the hero that this town needs. Full cast of narrators include Sam Osheroff, Chris Abell, Eddie Lopez, Grover Gardner, Jim Meskimen, Traber Burns, Nick Sullivan, Patrick Lawlor, Donald Corren, John Lescault, Johnny Heller, R. C. Bray, William Hughes, Armando Duran, and Michael Kramer.

The War on History

Summary

America is hopelessly divided, but more worryingly, the ideas and “mystic chords of memory” that rest at the cornerstone of our civilization and bind the generations are being severed, attacked, and forgotten. The left has set out to shatter these bonds with a war on American history - the fundamental concepts, institutions, and icons that make our country what it is. And we have failed to protect our history, allowing Hollywood, educators, and the media to rewrite the story of America. We have ignored the invaluable lessons of our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. If we wish to hold onto their vision of America, we must once again try to understand and defend the world-shaking ideas, actions, and men who made America great.

Not God Enough

2 ratings

Summary

Your God is too small. We like God small. We prefer a God who is safe, domesticated, who thinks like we think, likes what we like, and whom we can manage, predict, and control. A small God is convenient. Practical. Manageable. The truth: God is big. Bigger than big. Bigger than all the words we use to say big. Ironically, many today seem turned off by the concept of an awesome, terrifyingly great God. We assume that a God you would need to fear is guilty of some kind of fault. For us, thinking of God as so infinitely greater and wiser than we are and who would cause us to tremble in his presence is a leftover relic from an oppressive, archaic view of religion. But what if this small version of God we've created is holding us back from the greatest experience of our lives - from genuine, confident, world-transforming faith? In Not God Enough, J. D. reveals how to discover a God who is big enough to handle your questions, doubts, and fears; is not silent; is worthy of worship; wants to take you from boring to bold in your faith; has a purpose and mission for you on earth; and is pursuing you right now. God is not just a slightly better, slightly smarter version of you. God is infinite and glorious, and an encounter with him won't just change the way you think about your faith. It'll change your entire life.

Summary

Marcantonio Colonna's The Dictator Pope has rocked Rome and the entire Catholic Church with its portrait of an authoritarian, manipulative, and politically partisan pontiff.  Occupying a privileged perch in Rome during the tumultuous first years of Francis' pontificate, Colonna was privy to the shock, dismay, and even panic that the reckless new pope engendered in the Church's most loyal and judicious leaders.  The Dictator Pope discloses that Father Mario Bergoglio (the future Pope Francis) was so unsuited for ecclesiastical leadership that the head of his own Jesuit order tried to prevent his appointment as a bishop in Argentina. Behind the benign smile of the "People's Pope" Colonna reveals a ruthless autocrat aggressively asserting the powers of the papacy in pursuit of a radical agenda.

Defending Free Speech

1 rating

Summary

Freedom of speech is indispensable to a free and civilized society, yet this precious right is increasingly under attack today.  Islamic totalitarians repeatedly threaten and kill those deemed blasphemers while our political leaders stand idly by - and many intellectuals blame the victims. College students seek "trigger warnings" and "safe spaces" from controversial ideas. The government harasses tea party groups, preventing them from speaking out during an election, and it investigates oil companies and advocacy groups for the "crime" of dissenting from climate change orthodoxy.  Why is this happening? What can be done?  This hard-hitting collection provides answers. Applying Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism to the most pressing free speech issues of the day, the essays in this book reveal the attacks on free speech to be the product of destructive ideas - ideas that are eroding Western culture at its foundation. They expose those ideas and the individuals who hold them, and, importantly, they identify the only ideas on which Western civilization can be sustained: reason, egoism, and individual rights.

Failing to Confront Islamic Totalitarianism

Summary

The military strength of the United States is unmatched in all of world history. Yet 15 years after September 11, Islamic totalitarianism is undefeated, emboldened, and on the march: from Paris and San Bernardino to Brussels and Orlando. Why?  The fundamental problem lies in the irrational philosophic ideas that permeate - and subvert -American foreign policy. The United States is a military superpower, but it lacks the self-confidence and moral certainty needed to defend itself and its ideals. And our political and intellectual leaders evade the nature of Islamic totalitarianism. After 9/11, the Ayn Rand Institute predicted that the prevailing ideas about morality would undercut our foreign policy and cripple us in action. In the op-eds, essays, blog posts, and interviews featured in this audiobook, you will hear that those predictions have proved correct. Can we end the Islamist menace and secure our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness on earth? Yes - easily - if we adopt the right philosophic ideas to guide our foreign policy.

Unjust

Summary

Social justice is not justice - it is a dogma that divides society into identity groups and foments division, anger, and desire for vengeance. Unfortunately, social justice has permeated America, and as it turns out, it is not a philosophy that appeals to the better angels of our nature. In practice, social justice is outright disdainful of the kind of blind, objective justice toward which Western civilization has striven since there was such a thing as Western civilization. Its advocates would argue that blind justice is not justice at all and that objectivity is a utopian objective, a myth clung to by naive children. The social justice creed is shaping our every daily interaction. It influences how businesses structure themselves. It is altering how employers and employees interrelate. It has utterly transformed academia. It is remaking our politics with alarming swiftness. And there are consequences for those who transgress against the tenets of social justice and the self-appointed inquisitors who enforce its maxims. In Unjust, Commentary, magazine associate editor Noah Rothman deconstructs today's out-of-control social justice movement and the lasting damage it has had on American politics, culture, and education and our nation's future.

In many ways it placed greater demand on piloting proficiency than any spacecraft.

An ordinary leader is someone who leads a small organization or team that is doing great things. They manage the majority of the world's workforce, but they don't lead large corporations or big government agencies. Ordinary leaders are rarely written about in books or quoted in magazines. They are, however, important. Maybe not globally, but in their own realm of influence, their leadership makes a difference. Author Randy Grieser presents 10 key insights for building and leading a thriving organization. These are the principles he identifies as instrumental to success as a leader. Writing for leaders everywhere, he inspires, motivates, and explains how to make each insight a reality in your organization. Also included are the perspectives of 10 ordinary leaders from a range of professions, survey feedback from over 1700 leaders and employees, and a resource section that provides detailed guidance and examples for putting these ideas into action.

The Dodge Brothers: The Men, the Motor Cars, and the Legacy

Summary

At the start of the Ford Motor Company in 1903, the Dodge Brothers supplied nearly every car part needed by the up-and-coming auto giant. After 15 years of operating a successful automotive supplier company, much to Ford's advantage, John and Horace Dodge again changed the face of the automotive market in 1914 by introducing their own car. The Dodge Brothers automobile carried on their names even after their untimely deaths in 1920, with the company then remaining in the hands of their widows until its sale in 1925 to New York bankers and subsequent purchase in 1928 by Walter Chrysler. Charles K. Hyde's book The Dodge Brothers: The Men, the Motor Cars, and the Legacy is the first scholarly study of the Dodge brothers and their company, chronicling their lives - from their childhood in Niles, Michigan, to their long years of learning the machinist's trade in Battle Creek, Port Huron, Detroit, and Windsor, Ontario - and examining their influence on automotive manufacturing and marketing trends in the early part of the 20th century.

Summary

The Culture Project is a field manual for leaders who want to roll up their sleeves and disrupt the status quo. The Culture Project will tell you how you can use practical tactics and common sense to really understand what’s going on “in the weeds” of your organization - and why doing so is the only way to end mediocre performance and lukewarm results.  Too often, business leaders today look for technology solutions to their business problems. But this approach misses the human side of the story - the culture side of the story - because tech-only approaches to problem solving will fail unless they consider what people in these organizations need from technology.  Presented by Tom Bradbury, a career-long entrepreneur, this 30-day program removes friction, influences a more authentic tech-enabled culture, and then allows the leader to return to the helm as a rejuvenated and strategic champion for the firm’s future - a future fueled by improved communication, increased collaboration, and greater productivity, all of which foster the innovative thinking required to succeed over the next decade and beyond.  “Rarely have I seen the topic of culture change addressed so simply and confidently. Tom Bradbury removes the mystery of culture change and offers, instead, a vigorous and smart series of steps leaders can take to get their company culture unstuck and moving in a better direction.” (Thomas A. Stewart, Executive Director, National Center for the Middle Market)

Chaco

Summary

When everything you count on for your existence fails, could you survive? Within days of a series of monster solar storms slamming into earth, electrical grids fail and everything in the northern hemisphere with a computer chip ceases functioning. Electricity won't be completely restored for at least a decade, and the result is that everything modern life depends on to function is gone. There is no way to pump gas or water. Cell towers are wiped out, along with satellites. Airplanes and most vehicles will not operate. Communication is practically impossible. People cannot access life-saving prescription drugs or food. Police, fire services, and the military are overwhelmed, and hospitals can't cope. There's no one to come to the rescue, and as mass panic ensues, people begin dying. Fear and violence escalate until society collapses. An unlikely hero emerges. Chaco is a well-educated freedom fighter on a death list in El Salvador. Having fled to the United States, he is in hiding by working for a wealthy couple as their handyman and gardener. Following the disaster, he reveals his true identity, and convinces his employers and their neighbors to follow him over brutal mountain passes to a self-sufficient commune nearly 800 miles away. But only a few will survive.
