The German Girl

Summary

"Our parents were taken. And if we go home, the Nazis will take us too...." Hamburg, 1938. Fifteen-year-old Asta is hurrying home from school with her twin brother, Jurgen. The mood in the city is tense - synagogues have been smashed with sledgehammers, and Asta is too frightened to laugh as she used to.  But when she and Jurgen are stopped in the street by a friend, her world implodes further. Her Jewish parents have been dragged into the streets by German soldiers, and if she and Jurgen return to their house, they will be taken, too.  Heartbroken at the loss of her parents, Asta knows they must flee. With her beloved brother, she must make the perilous journey across Germany and into Denmark to reach their only surviving relative, her aunt Trine, a woman they barely know.  Jammed into a truck with other refugees, Asta prays for a miracle to save herself and Jurgen. Crossing the border is a crime punishable by death, but she and Jurgen must embark on a dangerous crossing on foot, through the snowy forest dividing Germany and Denmark. And when barking dogs and armed soldiers find Jurgen and Asta escapes, she must hold on to hope no matter what. One day she will find her twin, the other half of herself. Whatever the price she has to pay.... Fans of Fiona Valpy, Kristin Hannah, and Catherine Hokin will be gripped by the story of a brave brother and sister seeking safety during one of the darkest times in our history.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety

Summary

Can't control the anxiety that grips you every day and can't stay peaceful? Do you often have problems managing your mood swings? Are you prey to sudden panic attacks that prevent you from doing anything? If you are in at least one of the situations above, then this book can  help you. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a form of psychotherapy that is found scientifically to be an effective method of treating depression and anxiety as well as many other types of problems. Most often, people tend to accept physical illnesses or accidents that damage their daily functioning but fail to allow themselves to become psychologically well. Human beings regardless of their culture, creed, background, class, race or any other distinctive characteristic are likely to experience some form of mental or emotional disturbances in the course of their lives. The good news is that it is normal to be psychologically disturbed, and it is possible to recover. CBT helps.   This book will help you understand the anxiety and depression deeply from mere definitions, signs, and symptoms. Depression and anxiety refer to a range of abnormal changes in the mood of an individual. These variations originate as an outcome of a chemical reaction in the individual’s brain. Approximately 90 percent of people with anxiety disorders develop depression. An individual suffering from anxiety and depression normally exhibits low self-esteem, loss of appetite, loss of interest or pleasure, and feelings of guilt. Instead of expressing how one feels, some people tend to use drugs or alcohol to feel better. This normally worsens things in the long run. One’s work ends up suffering, and alcohol often brings about irresponsible, dangerous, or unpleasant behavior. The person focuses more on work instead of relationships and home life. This causes conflicts with the family.    This book will help you to: Identifying triggers Manage anxiety with CBT Identify the good habits Journaling Manage negative thinking and depression. Learn mindfulness meditation. Increasing mental stamina Learn exercises that combat anxiety And more.... If you are an absolute beginner or already know about CBT, the information provided in this book and the practical exercises will provide you with all the tools you need to understand and analyze your problem and tackle it in a decisive manner.

Queen of the Desert

Summary

In the shadow of every great man is a greater woman. T.E. Lawrence is often credited with bringing diplomacy to the Middle East; in the shadows of every great man, you will often find an even greater woman. In Lawrence’s case, that woman’s name was Gertrude Bell. In a time when women didn't go to school, Bell did; in a time when women didn't join the army, Bell secured a job at the Army Intelligence Headquarters in Cairo; she spoke Arabic, Persian, French, and German. She knew the Middle Eastern terrain and culture better than almost any Westerner of her time. In a male-driven world, Bell managed to become one of the greatest policymakers the world has ever known; without her, the Middle East might very well be a much different place, and her influence in the territory gave her the nickname "Queen of the Desert". This biography tells the extraordinary story of one of the most adventurous and fascinating women you will ever encounter.

Summary

Two worlds collide in Andalon The tranquil continent of Andalon descends into chaos when pirates and outlaws form an alliance against tyranny. Warfare ensues as they uncover dark secrets involving a superior society, and centuries of stability unravel under the watchful eye of magic-wielding Falconers. This sect of administrators captures and farms children who can potentially manipulate the elements, and the eerie specters steal the latent telepathic abilities for their own use.  The heroes of Pirate’s Cove include Eusari Thorinson, kidnapped and sold at a young age. She must choose vengeance against those responsible or saving the world beside Braen Braston, a quiet outcast from the northern kingdom of Fjorik. Magical powers awaken around them, challenging their knowledge of history and the world. Across the continent, Robert Esterling fights to come of age and struggles with physical limitations while leading a civil war against his usurper brother, the leader chosen by the Falconers, and the evil Campton Shol. He must decide the fate of thousands of refugees from the west, the hated and feared Pescari, and their goddess of fire. Follow these unlikely heroes as they face political intrigue and work through personal barriers. Listen along as they learn to use their emotionally based powers without destroying the very people they feel compelled to save against a new and much larger foe than Andalon ever dreamed. Andalon Awakens is an emotional ride that will lead you to laughter, tears, and gasps along the way. T. B. Phillips is a craftsman who toys with your heart and leads you by the hand through expert world-building, putting you inside each of his characters.

Summary

Do you often have problems managing your mood swings? Do You want manage your stress or phobias? Do you want improve your interpersonal effectiveness?  If you are in at least one of the situations above, then this book can help you. Dialectical behavior therapy has offered much in the realm of therapies. Dr. Linehan has saved thousands of lives with her innovative work. A borderline personality disorder is not being “crazy” or “unhinged”. It’s simply a mental illness. It includes many other mental illnesses as facets of it. Because of that, it only makes sense that an effective therapy would include many types of therapy and self-reflection. Mindfulness is probably the most important aspect of DBT because we have been trained not to be mindful. We’re like ants, scurrying around - hurry, hurry, hurry, but going nowhere. Mindfulness forces you to focus on the present. Ask yourself, “Am I treading water? Am I at the bottom of a rung I do want to be on or the middle of one I don’t?” When you choose mindfulness, you look at your life for a moment. Your questions aren’t all going to be answered in one moment of mindfulness. It’s something that must be practiced every day. DBT is an excellent medium for learning skills of mindfulness and interpersonal relationships. When therapy is complete, you’ve acquired an outstanding toolkit of skills to reach from in any situation. Our entire lives are our memories and our interpersonal relationships. Because DBT focuses on mindfulness and interpersonal relationships, it is one of the most effective types of therapies. When we’re mindful, we’re creating memories. We’re technically creating memories when we’re not mindful as well - but not memories of what’s actually happening.  This guide will focus on the following: Overview of DBT Components used in DBT What disorders Does DBT treat? Distress tolerance Mindfulness Working with emotions Emotion regulation Improve your interaction DBT and stress DBT and anxiety and phobias How to Support someone who is going through therapy DBT Applications and more...

Vegas and the Mob

1 rating

Summary

Las Vegas was the Mob's greatest venture and most spectacular success, and through 40 years of frenzy, murder, deceit, scams, and skimming, the FBI listened on phone taps and did virtually nothing to stop the fun. This is the truth about the Mob's control of the casinos in Vegas like you've never heard it before, from start to finish. Two of the nation's most powerful crime family bosses went to prison in the 1930s: Al Capone, and Lucky Luciano. Frank Nitti took over the Chicago Outfit, while Frank Costello ran things for the Luciano Family. Both men were influenced by their bosses from prison, and both sent enough gangsters into the streets to influence loan sharking, extortion, union control, and drug sales. Bugsy Siegel worked for both groups, handling a string of murders and opening up gaming on the west coast, and that included Las Vegas, an oasis of sin in the middle of the desert - and it was legal. Most of it. The FBI watched as the Mob took control of casino after casino, killed off the competition, and stole enough money to bribe their way to respectability back home. By the 1950s, nearly every major crime family had a stake in a Las Vegas casino. Some did better than others. Casino owners watched-over their profits while competing crime families eyed each other's success like jealous lovers. Murder often followed.

Cover art for The Roots of Reno

The Roots of Reno

Summary

Reno was truly “Hell on Wheels” in the 1920's. The rest of the nation considered the town Sodom and Gomorra, but that's only half the truth. Reno offered everything in the way of adult entertainment, from speakeasies and houses of ill-repute, to open gaming - legal or not. And it took plenty of sins by the founding fathers to make Reno “The biggest little city in the world.” When the gold-veins of Tonopah and Goldfield ran out, the casino owners moved to Reno, where even greater riches awaited. Together, a group of four men (Nick Abelman, Bill Graham, Jim McKay, George Wingfield) took over Reno's casinos and held sway over the town for the next three decades. Together, they administered policy, collected juice, ran politicians, and owned the red-light district and most of the town's casinos. When that wasn't enough they took over the banks and laundered money for crooks like “Pretty Boy” Floyd, Alvin Karpis, and Ma Barker's boys, and offered safety to “Baby Face” Nelson. It was a good gig. The Reno Four dictated policy all over northern Nevada, taking special care of Reno and Lake Tahoe casinos up until the late 1950's. Their influence made Reno before Bill Harrah or “Pappy” Smith ever arrived, needing an introduction and permission to build their own casinos, Harold's Club and Harrah's..

Grieving Dreams: Dream Death

Summary

For the sort of dreams that humans have while asleep, you will have to consult other books. This book is not about bad dreams or nightmares either. This book is about dreams in real life that are dashed by death, divorce, moves, loss of a job, or a loss of a relationship. Hence, these are grieving dreams or dream death. The circumstances of life, for us all, brings loss into our lives. Some loss is self-actuated, other loss is from the actions of others, while other losses just happen in what we call "acts of God". In every loss, there is a "dream dimension" to the loss. The "what would have been, what should have been, or what could have been," is the dream element of the loss.
