Reacher never backs down from a problem. And he's about to find a big one, on a deserted Arizona road, where a Jeep has crashed into the only tree for miles around. Under the merciless desert sun, nothing is as it seems. Minutes later Reacher is heading into the nearby border town, a backwater that has seen better days. Next to him is Michaela Fenton, an army veteran turned FBI agent, who is trying to find her twin brother. He might have got mixed up with some dangerous people. And Reacher might just need to pay them a visit. Their leader has burrowed his influence deep into the town. Just to get in and meet the mysterious Dendoncker, Reacher is going to have to achieve the impossible. To get answers will be even harder. There are people in this hostile, empty place who would rather die than reveal their secrets. But then, if Reacher is coming after you, you might be better off dead. *** 'Jack Reacher is today's James Bond, a thriller hero we can't get enough of.'

*A SCOTSMAN TRAVEL BOOK OF THE YEAR* Stranded at Schiphol airport, Ben Coates called up a friendly Dutch girl he'd met some months earlier. He stayed for dinner. Actually, he stayed for good. In the first book to consider the hidden heart and history of the Netherlands from a modern perspective, the author explores the length and breadth of his adopted homeland and discovers why one of the world's smallest countries is also so significant and so fascinating. It is a self-made country, the Dutch national character shaped by the ongoing battle to keep the water out from the love of dairy and beer to the attitude to nature and the famous tolerance. Ben Coates investigates what makes the Dutch the Dutch, why the Netherlands is much more than Holland and why the colour orange is so important. Along the way he reveals why they are the world's tallest people and have the best carnival outside Brazil. He learns why Amsterdam's brothels are going out of business, who really killed Anne Frank, and how the Dutch manage to be richer than almost everyone else despite working far less. He also discovers a country which is changing fast, with the Dutch now questioning many of the liberal policies which made their nation famous. A personal portrait of a fascinating people, a sideways history and an entertaining travelogue, Why the Dutch are Different is the story of an Englishman who went Dutch. And loved it.

From the USA TODAY bestselling author. "I consider Elizabeth Thornton a major find." —Mary Balogh, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of ONLY ENCHANTING Briony Langland had no use for the superficial games of the ton. She did, however, have choice words for London's most notorious rake when she caught him dallying with his flavor of the moment in her uncle's library. She never thought that her bold set-down would only inspire his lordship to employ his considerable charms to awaken her own deepest passions. Hugh Montgomery, Marques of Ravensworth, has never met a woman he couldn't seduce and just as easily forget. But Briony, so self-possessed, so scrupulous, so determined to thwart him at every turn, has awakened something deep inside his cold, self-serving heart—a desire to experience love. His lordship has a few lessons to learn in the art of sweet persuasion...and Briony may be just the woman to teach him.

The Seven Wicked Series: Book 1 of 7 (Books 2, 3, and 4 available now!) - Young Adult Paranormal Romance “That's just the First," Caleb said, pausing to worry at his lower lip. “And it's only one of seven, Seven Wicked; we can't destroy any of the others until we destroy the First.” When reincarnated goddess, Eevee Marx, sees the necklace at her local thrift store, she just has to have it. But Eevee has no idea that when she drapes the delicate, silver links over her fingers, she is continuing a legend her spirit had started centuries ago. That when she unhooks the tiny clasp and lays the black and silver pendant against her chest, she will spend the night of her seventeenth birthday holding the dying body of the boy she loves. The Seven Wicked have been sleeping, preparing for Eevee to touch the necklace and reawaken the powers inside of her. Now, the only thing that stands between them is Caleb, the golden haired boy who will sacrifice himself to save her. EXCERPT: I spent the night of my seventeenth birthday holding the dying body of the boy I loved. I watched in helpless horror as the light in his gentle eyes faded slowly, brushing my fingers through the golden halo of his hair as I tried not to cry. “You can't go yet,” I whispered in the sudden silence. Either the First was already dead or it had crawled off into some dank, dirty hole in the ground to finish dying. I could only hope it was suffering half as much as we were. Caleb tried to smile at me, blood trickling down the sides of his face in warm, crimson rivulets. He was trying to make me feel better when he was the one who was dying. Tears prickled at the corners of my eyes. “Please,” I begged, hugging him close to me. As I shifted his body, he grunted in pain, and I was forced to release him back into the confines of my lap. “I'm so sorry.” Caleb smiled again and reached a quaking hand up to my lips. This is all my fault. I did this. I killed my guardian angel. “Don't be sorry, Eevee. I'm not.” A rumble shook the dirt beneath us and rattled the corrugated steel walls around us. The broken lamps swung violently overhead, the rusty chains snapping as glass and metal exploded into the ground and burst like bombs, shrapnel nicking my face and neck. “Caleb,” I whispered, hunching over to protect him from the debris. “What's going on? I thought you killed it?” Across the warehouse, a mound of dirt was rising like an anthill, black oozing from the openings on its side, glistening and thick like oil. Caleb didn't respond at first, his eyelids fluttering like frantic butterflies as he struggled to maintain consciousness. I tore my gaze from his pale lashes and bloody lips, checking carefully to make sure we weren't going to be swallowed whole by the ever widening pool of sludge. The shaking had stopped suddenly, leaving us in eerie quiet that sent chills down my spine. I had to get him out of there, but I didn't know how. Think of something. Caleb was there for you, be there for him. I couldn't let fear and panic cripple me. I had to be as brave, as strong, as the boy that I held motionless in my arms. I clutched for the necklace with my right hand, hoping there was enough magic left to save us both. A whisper drew my attention back to my guardian's pallid features. His cracked lips were moving, but no sound was coming out. “What is it?” I sobbed, taking his face in one hand and tilting my head so that my ear was pressed as close to him as I could get without touching the bruises on his cheeks. “The Second,” he gasped, pink bubbles sputtering as he tried to enunciate beyond the red liquid in his mouth. And then he fell still. His eyes emptied of anything and everything that had ever made Caleb, Caleb. The necklace fell from my grasp, swinging back and forth like a noose.

The frank and compelling story of an extraordinary woman and her adventures in fashion, business, and life. “Most fairy tales end with the girl marrying the prince. That's where mine began,” says Diane Von Furstenberg. Von Furstenberg lived the American Dream before she was thirty, building a multimillion-dollar fashion empire while raising two children and living life in the fast lane. Her wrap dress, a cultural phenomenon in the seventies, hangs in the Smithsonian Institution; her entry into the beauty business in 1979 was as serendipitous and as successful. Von Furstenberg learned her trade in the trenches, crisscrossing the country to make personal appearances at department stores, selling her dresses and cosmetics. That business had its ups and downs, as the fashionista entrepreneur’s unparalleled success became the source of its own undoing and she contended with bankruptcy, the loss of her business, and finally a complete self-reinvention that took her back to the top of the industry. This revealing and contemplative memoir works to make sense of the contradictions of the author’s life: glamour vs. hard work, European vs. American, daughter of a Holocaust survivor vs. wife of an Austro-Italian prince, mother vs. entrepreneur, lover vs. tycoon. She emerges wiser, stronger, and ever more determined never to sacrifice her passion for life.

But resisting his easy charm and surfer-boy hotness is darn near impossible. Though I’m realizing there’s much more to Conor’s story than his fan club can see. And the longer this silly ruse goes on, the greater the danger of it all blowing up in my face.

Esta edición digital reproduce la edición impresa de la Sagrada Biblia en cinco volúmenes, conocida también popularmente como "Biblia de Navarra". La traducción, comentario y notas de la Biblia realizados por la Facultad de Teología de la Universidad de Navarra —hasta el momento solo accesible en papel— se ofrece ahora a un coste más económico, con posibilidad de mejoras y actualizaciones periódicas*. La edición de esta "Sagrada Biblia" se remonta al encargo que hizo san Josemaría Escrivá, Fundador del Opus Dei y primer Gran Canciller de la Universidad de Navarra, a la Facultad de Teología de esta universidad. El deseo del Fundador del Opus Dei era que la Facultad de Teología llevara a cabo una edición de la Biblia que ofreciera el texto sagrado en una cuidada traducción castellana, acompañada de abundantes notas y de oportunas introducciones que explicaran su mensaje espiritual y teológico. La traducción castellana está realizada siguiendo las orientaciones del Concilio Vaticano II (Dei Verbum, n. 22) a partir de los textos originales. En los libros del Antiguo Testamento que se nos han conservado en hebreo, el texto masorético ha sido traducido atendiendo a las lecturas propuestas por la edición crítica de Stuttgart (Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia); para el texto hebreo del Eclesiástico se ha tenido en cuenta la edición de P.C. Beentjes, The Book of Ben Sira in Hebrew. Los textos que no figuran en la Biblia hebrea y que han pasado a la Biblia cristiana a partir de manuscritos griegos han sido traducidos de la edición de Göttingen. Para el Nuevo Testamento se ha utilizado la edición crítica de Nestle-Aland27, Novum Testamentum Graece, Stuttgart 1994. Cuando los manuscritos, tanto hebreos como griegos, presentan diferencias textuales notables hemos seguido preferentemente la opción tomada por la Neovulgata. La presente edición no incluye el texto latino de la Neovulgata que se ofrece a pie de página en los volúmenes en papel.

A classic work of psychology, this international bestseller provides a groundbreaking insight into the human mind. With an introduction by Will Self. If a man has lost a leg or an eye, he knows he has lost a leg or an eye; but if he has lost a self – himself – he cannot know it, because he is no longer there to know it. In this extraordinary book, Dr. Oliver Sacks recounts the stories of patients struggling to adapt to often bizarre worlds of neurological disorder. Here are people who can no longer recognize everyday objects or those they love; who are stricken with violent tics or shout involuntary obscenities, and yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents. If inconceivably strange, these brilliant tales illuminate what it means to be human. A provocative exploration of the mysteries of the human mind, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat is a million-copy bestseller by the twentieth century's greatest neurologist.

Hyvä. Parempi. Ihminen. Ihminen on luonnostaan itsekäs ja ihmiskunta tavoittelee vain omaa etuaan.

Ylistetyssä teoksessaan Hyvän historia Rutger Bregman kääntää ajatuksen ihmisen pahuudesta ylösalaisin. Mitä jos luonnonvalinta ei suosinutkaan ilkeintä ja kovinta pyrkyriä vaan ystävällisintä ja huomaavaisinta tyyppiä? Kirja kyseenalaistaa ihmiskunnan itsekkyyttä toistelevat kauhutarinat Pääsiäissaaren murhenäytelmästä Milgramin sähköiskukokeeseen sekä kertoo, mitä tapahtui, kun kuusi koulupoikaa oikeasti haaksirikkoutui autiolle saarelle niin kuin klassikkokirjassa Kärpästen herra. Vakuuttava teos murskaa myytit ihmisen pahuudesta yksi kerrallaan ja tarjoaa tilalle myönteistä ihmiskuvaa. Nyt on toisenlaisen tarinan aika. Rutger Bregman on alankomaalainen historioitsija, joka on valloittanut maailman menestyskirjallaan Ilmaista rahaa kaikille.

Soon to be a major motion picture from Paramount Pictures starring John Lithgow, Jason Clarke, and Amy Seimetz! King's iconic, beloved classic is 'so beautifully paced that you cannot help but be pulled in' Guardian 'SOMETIMES...DEAD IS BETTER' The house looked right, felt right to Dr Louis Creed. Rambling, old, unsmart and comfortable. A place where the family could settle; the children grow and play and explore. The rolling hills and meadows of Maine seemed a world away from the fume-choked dangers of Chicago. Only the occasional big truck out on the two-lane highway, grinding up through the gears, hammering down the long gradients, growled out an intrusive threat. But behind the house and far away from the road: that was safe. Just a carefully cleared path up into the woods where generations of local children have processed with the solemn innocence of the young, taking with them their dear departed pets for burial. A sad place maybe, but safe. Surely a safe place. Not a place to seep into your dreams, to wake you, sweating with fear and foreboding.

What can a father do, when the only solution offered to his rare and troubled boy is to put him on psychoactive drugs? What can he say when his boy comes to him wanting an explanation for a world that is clearly in love with its own destruction? The only thing for it is to take the boy to other planets, all while fostering his son's desperate attempt to save this one. At the heart of Bewilderment lies the question: How can we tell our children the truth about this beautiful, imperiled planet?

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Mary Balogh's The Secret Mistress. Meet the Bedwyns—six brothers and sisters—men and women of passion and privilege, daring and sensuality....Enter their dazzling world of high society and breathtaking seduction...where each will seek love, fight temptation, and court scandal...and where Alleyne Bedwyn, the passionate middle son, is cut off from his past—only to find his future with a sinfully beautiful woman he will risk everything to love. As the fires of war raged around him, Lord Alleyne Bedwyn was thrown from his horse and left for dead—only to awaken in the bedchamber of a ladies' brothel. Suddenly the dark, handsome diplomat has no memory of who he is or how he got there—yet of one thing he is certain: The angel who nurses him back to health is the woman he vows to make his own. But like him, Rachel York is not who she seems. A lovely young woman caught up in a desperate circumstance, she must devise a scheme to regain her stolen fortune. The dashing soldier she rescued from near-death could be her savior in disguise. There is just one condition: she must pose as his wife—a masquerade that will embroil them in a sinful scandal, where a man and a woman court impropriety with each daring step...with every taboo kiss that can turn passionate strangers into the truest of lovers.

Suomi on saanut uuden trilleritähden! Kello käy. Voiko kukaan estää helvetin portteja aukeamasta? Zagrebilaisesta kerrostalosta löytyy neljä teloitettua miestä. Surma-asunto on Britannian valtion omistuksessa, mutta kukaan ei tunnu tietävän mitään sen asukkaista. Puolustusvoimain erityisasiantuntija Daniel Kuisma on juuri saanut vapauttavan tuomion sotarikosoikeudenkäynnissä, kun hänen luokseen ilmestyy odottamaton vieras. Daniel luulee jättäneensä vihdoin taakseen yli kahdenkymmenen vuoden takaiset tapahtumat Balkanilla, mutta vieras kertoo hänelle jotain, mikä saa hänet hyppäämään empimättä Zagrebin-koneeseen. Vaarassa on kenties tuhansien ihmisten henki. Haadeksen kutsu sukeltaa suoraan pahuuden pimeään ytimeen, josta kukaan ei palaa entisellään – jos ylipäätään palaa. "Mefiston kosketuksen perusteella on selvää, että Suomi on saamassa Max Seeckistä uuden trilleritähden." Turun Sanomat "Toisella jännärillään Seeck on lunastamassa pysyvää paikkaa suomalaisten huipputrilleristien varsin suppeassa joukossa."

Hän hallitsee vetävän tarinankuljetuksen ja onnistuu nerokkailla juonenkäänteillään vetämään kerta toisensa jälkeen maton lukijan jalkojen alta.

" Hiiriä ja ihmisiä on kuin proosaksi levitetty kansanballadi ystävyydestä ja kuolemasta kalifornialaisilla laaksomailla." Savon sanomat, 1963 Hiiriä ja ihmisiä kuvaa koskettavasti särkyviä unelmia, ystävyyttä ja erilaisuuden pelkoa 1930-luvun lamavuosien Yhdysvalloissa. Vastuu ja vapaus, kiintymys ja henkilökohtainen onni asettuvat vastakkain Steinbeckin pienessä mestariteoksessa. George ja Lennie ovat elämän heittelemiä sekatyömiehiä, jotka vaeltavat työn toivossa karjatilalta toiselle. Työtä löytyy silloin tällöin, mutta hidas ja erilainen Lennie onnistuu aina sotkemaan asiat, ja miehet joutuvat taas tien päälle. George kantaa raskasta vastuuta uskollisesta Lenniestä ja haaveilee vapaammasta elämästä. Silti heidän suhdettaan leimaa lämmin ystävyys ja yhteenkuuluvuuden tunne. George suojelee ja auttaa jättiläismäistä, lempeää Lennietä, joka rakastaa hiiriä ja muita pieniä eläimiä. Niitä Lennie aina hoivailee, mutta pienet otukset eivät selviä suurissa kourissa, ja murhenäytelmä seuraa vääjäämättä toistaan.Neuvokas George ja yksinkertainen Lennie tavoittelevat työtä ja itsenäisyyttä vaelluksellaan halki Kalifornian. Kun miehet pääsevät Soledadin karjatilalle töihin, tuntuu hetken verran kuin unelmat voisivat toteutua. He voisivat päästä elämässä eteenpäin ja kenties hankkia oman pienen tilan, josta erityisesti Lennie haaveilee. Mutta Soledadin väki on omalla tavallaan yksinäistä ja onnetonta, ja Lennie ei osaa tulkita heidän käytöstään oikein. Tilanhoitajan poika Curley asettuu Lennietä vastaan, ja katastrofi on valmis, kun Curleyn turhamainen vaimo ei harkitse tekojaan. Georgen osa on kantaa ystävyyden raskas taakka loppuun saakka. John Steinbeck (1902–1968) kuuluu amerikkalaisen kirjallisuuden suuriin nimiin. Hänet tunnetaan ennen kaikkea rehevänä ja lämminhenkisenä ihmisen ja yhteiskunnan kuvaajana. Hän sai Nobelin kirjallisuuspalkinnon 1962.

”Voima piilee rauhallisuudessa.” Inhimillinen ja kiehtova henkilökuva yhdestä aikamme merkittävimmistä vaikuttajista, jota on ohjannut vahva moraali ja lähes pettämätön poliittinen pelisilmä. Angela Merkel on aina ollut ulkopuolinen: ateistisessa Itä-Saksassa varttunut pastorin tytär ja briljantti fyysikko, joka sivuutettiin sukupuolensa ja taustansa vuoksi huippuviroista. Kun Berliinin muuri murtui, Merkel ei osallistunut juhlintaan, vaan meni kotisaunaansa pohtimaan, mitä historiallinen tapahtuma merkitsisi Euroopalle, Saksalle ja hänelle itselleen. Viisitoista vuotta myöhemmin hän oli Saksan liittokansleri ja länsimaailman epävirallinen johtaja. "Voima piilee rauhallisuudessa”, lukee Merkelin työhuoneen seinälle kehystetyssä motossa. Tällä voimalla Merkel onnistui pitämään kriisistä toiseen nilkuttavan EU:n kasassa ja puhumaan järkeä jopa Vladimir Putinille. Ne harvat ihmiset, jotka tuntevat Merkelin yksityishenkilönä, kuvaavat tätä poikkeuksellisen myötätuntoiseksi ja hillittömän hauskaksi. Palkittu toimittaja ja tietokirjailija Kati Marton on saanut ensimmäisenä elämäkerturina pääsyn Merkelin lähipiiriin. Tuloksena on inhimillinen ja kiehtova tarina naisesta, joka on aina pyrkinyt pitämään kiinni moraalisista periaatteistaan, mutta on samalla ollut poliittisen pelin mestari. Kati Marton on moninkertaisesti palkittu unkarilais-amerikkalainen toimittaja ja tietokirjailija. Hän on työskennellyt Saksassa amerikkalaisen NPR-radiokanavan kirjeenvaihtajana sekä ABC-uutiskanavan asemapäällikkönä. Marton asuu nykyään New Yorkissa.

Few bands are as shrouded in the murky haze of rock mythology as The Doors, and parsing fact from fiction has been a virtually impossible task. But now, after fifty years, The Doors' notoriously quiet guitarist is finally breaking his silence to set the record straight. Through a series of vignettes, Robby takes readers back to where it all happened: the pawn shop where he bought his first guitar; the jail cell he was tossed into after a teenage drug bust; his parents' living room where his first songwriting sessions with Jim Morrison took place; and the many concert venues that erupted into historic riots. Robby also goes into heartbreaking detail about his life's most difficult struggles, ranging from drug addiction to cancer, but he balances out the sorrow with humorous anecdotes about run-ins with unstable fans, famous musicians, and one really angry monk. SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE is at once an insightful time capsule of 1960s counterculture and a moving reflection on what it means to find oneself as a musician. It's not only a must-read for Doors fans, but an essential volume of American pop culture history.

Älskade sommarprataren är tillbaka med glittrande berättelser om vårt samspel med naturen. Du och jag är invävda i naturens flätverk, mycket tätare än du tror. Miljontals arter är livsnödvändiga för att vi ska få mat, medicin och en beboelig livsmiljö, förutom all den kunskap och glädje naturen bereder oss. På sitt engagerande vis berättar hyllade sommarprataren Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson spännande och tankeväckande berättelser om naturens dolda samspel. Hon tar med oss ut i regnskogen, där orkidébina tillverkar parfym och pollinerar nötterna i fredagsmyspåsen, men stannar inte i insekternas värld – den här gången tar hon oss med på besök hos en myriad små och livsviktiga arter på en svindlande jordenruntresa. In i den svala skuggan under gågatornas stora träd, de som gör att vi behöver mindre luftkylning. Ner i skyttegravarna där soldater använde självlysande svamp som lyktor under månlösa nätter. Vi får läsa om träd i urskogen som ger oss cancermedicin och kungsfiskaren som inspirerade konstruktionen av snabbtåg. Men också om hur människans framfart kan sätta allt detta på spel. I vår iver att utnyttja naturen ligger också risken att undergräva själva grunden för att människor ska kunna leva. Vi talar idag om en naturkris, där arter hotas och deras livsmiljöer försvinner, en kris lika akut och allvarlig som klimatkrisen. Om vi ska kunna säkra vår egen framtid måste vi ändra vårt levnadssätt. Vi måste lära oss av naturen – och inse att vi och vårt ekosystem sitter i samma båt. Sagt om Insekternas planet: ”Idén om skapelsens krona känns inte lika giltig längre, sakta tvingas vi inse att vi inte lever av naturen – vi är naturen.” Kulturnytt i P1 ”Förenar vittgående fakta och egna reflektioner på käck sakprosa (…) Insekterna behöver inte oss. Men vi behöver dem.” Expressen ”Hon ser det stora i det lilla.” Aftonbladet ”Insekternas planet är en ren glädje.” The Times ”Lärd, upplysande och underhållande … en läglig påminnelse om vårt ekosystems bräcklighet och den vitala roll insekter spelar i planetens framtid och människans fortsatta existens.” Countryman ”Insekternas planet är fullspäckad med förunderlig information. Det finns fler än 200 miljoner insekter på jorden för varje enskild människa, och alla som vill veta mer om dem kommer att tycka att denna bok är fascinerande.” Daily Express ”Professor Anne Sverdrup-Thygesons entusiasm för insekter är smittande. Hon kommunicerar sin omfattande vetenskapliga kunskap i elegant, läsbar prosa. En briljant, informativ läsupplevelse, full av fascinerande fakta om arterna som hjälper till att hålla världen på rätt köl.” Sunday Express

The daughter of a U.S. Senator is monitoring her social media presence when she finds a picture of herself on a strange blog. And there are other pictures . . . of the children of other influential Washington politicians, walking or standing outside their schools, each identified by name. Surrounding the photos are texts of vicious political rants from a motley variety of radical groups. It's obviously alarming--is there an unstable extremist tracking the loved ones of powerful politicians with deadly intent? But when the FBI is called in, there isn't much the feds can do. The anonymous photographer can't be pinned down to one location or IP address, and more importantly, at least to the paper-processing bureaucrats, no crime has actually been committed. With nowhere else to turn, influential Senators decide to call in someone who can operate outside the FBI's constraints: Lucas Davenport.

Astu enkeleiden maailmaan Kun aviomies kuoli, Lorna Byrnen maailma romahti. Portaat taivaaseen -kirjassa hän kertoo, kuinka hän sai koottua taas elämänsä ja kuinka hän, neljän lapsen kouluttamaton äiti, alkoi levittää enkelien sanomaa maailmalle. Lorna on nähnyt enkeleitä ja jutellut heidän kanssaan päivittäin läpi elämänsä. Hän paljastaa, kuinka enkelit toimivat maailmassa, mikä on ihmissielun ja ihmisruumiin suhde, mikä tehtävä jo kuolleilla, nyt taivaassa olevilla ihmisillä voi olla maanpäällisissä asioissa ja minkälaisia suunnitelmia Jumalalla ja enkeleillä on ihmiskunnan tulevaisuuden varalle. Lukijoidensa uskonnollisesta taustasta riippumatta Lorna antaa heille toivoa ja auttaa heitä tajuamaan, että heillä on suojelusenkelinsä vierellään jopa kaikkein yksinäisimpänä hetkenä. ”Byrne kirjoittaa henkimaailman asioista mukavan mutkattomasti ja antaa lukijalle paljon ajateltavaa.” – Ilona

Nicholas Sarkozy was elected President of France with a broken heart. Shortly after he took office, his second wife, Ceceila, left him for another man. He sat brooding alone by night in the Presidential Palace. Though on top of the world, and one of the most powerful men in Europe, he felt very much alone. Sick of his own company, he asked a friend to arrange a dinner party - and Carla Bruni was included on the guest list. A former supermodel and chart-topping singer-songwriter, Carla had a reputation as a man-eater: and she dined on the most exclusive Cordon Bleu. Her former suitors and boyfriends inlcluded Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger, Primer Minister Laurent Fabius and billionaire Donald Trump. But more than wealth and artistic brilliance, 'I want a man with nuclear power', she said: and Sarkozy had his finger on the button. The two flirted all night: and their first private date came twnety-four hours later. Within a few months, the President of France had a new finacee. Based on exclusive interviews with Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and many of the French elite close to both her and the President, this is the true and previously untold story of Europe's most glamorous couple. Read of how they met, fell instantly in love, and played a cat and mouse game with the world press before marrying in secret, to the amazement of the French people. A bestseller in France, this is the definitive account of the world's most gripping and dramatic modern tale of true romance.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Immortal Faerie and ancient feuds, secrets and sacrifices—a thrilling new chapter in the bestselling Fever series begins, featuring Dani, Ryodan, and other beloved characters, as they battle to save Dublin from the rising of a terrifying evil determined to enslave the human race.   There is no action without consequence.   Dani O’Malley was nine years old when the delusional, sadistic Rowena transformed her into a ruthless killer. Years later, Dani is tough and hardened, yet achingly vulnerable and fiercely compassionate, living alone by her own exacting code. Despite the scars on her body, and driven by deeper ones carved into her soul, no one is more committed to protecting Dublin. By day she ensures the safety of those she rescues, by night she hunts evil, dispensing justice swiftly and without mercy, determined to give to those she cares for the peace she has never known.     There is no power without price.   When the Faerie Queen used the dangerously powerful Song of Making to heal the world from the damage done by the Hoar Frost King, catastrophic magic seeped deep into the earth, giving rise to horrifying, unforeseen consequences—and now deadly enemies plot in the darkness, preparing to enslave the human race and unleash an ancient reign of Hell on Earth.   There is no future without sacrifice.   With the lethal, immortal Ryodan at her side, armed with the epic Sword of Light, Dani once again battles to save the world, but her past comes back to haunt her with a vengeance, demanding an unspeakable price for the power she needs to save the human race. And no one—not even Ryodan, who would move the very stars for her—can save her this time. Praise for High Voltage “A romance wrapped up in a thrilling sci-fi novel—what more could you want?” — PopSugar “If you’ve never read a Karen Marie Moning book before, you’re missing out. Her heroines alone are worth the read. . . . Despite being set in a dystopian world filled with magic and fae, the obstacles that these characters go through are very much humanlike. . . .

*Order now to read the long-awaited debut book from the huge TikTok sensation Evie Meg | This Trippy Hippie!* Hey guys, you might know me already from one of my social media channels where I talk about the highs and lows of living with Tourette's Syndrome. I've loved sharing those times with you and - as there are lots of things I can't fit into a 60 second video - I've decided to write a book! It's the full story of how I came to be diagnosed and how having Tourette's has changed my life. Writing it has given me an opportunity to talk about things I haven't felt ready to share before - for some reason it's easier to put down private things in written words than in a video! I talk about the many other illnesses I've been through and the dreams that it's affected - about my school days, relationships and my very lowest points - but I also talk about what I've managed to achieve in spite of all the obstacles. I hope it'll make you laugh and make you think, and empower you to realise that no matter what you're facing in life, there are always ways to deal with the challenges. It's also so important to me that people understand what life is like with a disability, so we can be compassionate towards each other. I've bared my soul in this book to hopefully help others to do this. I'm so excited (and just a little bit nervous) for you to read it! Evie Meg xxx

This means nothing. That sentence would become the biggest lie I've ever told myself after spending an unforgettable night with Sebastian Compton. Because he has rules—one night, no strings attached. It's easier that way. He travels the world as a bodyguard for his best friend and one of the most famous pop icons alive. I'm merely a glorified coffee-runner, still trying to get noticed by my boss. It would never work between us. It should have meant nothing. After all, my best friend schemed to hurt the very man Sebastian was hired to protect—and I knew about it. He shouldn't want to be near me. We shouldn't be sneaking around, hiding our feelings from those closest to us. I shouldn't want him. He's arrogant, jealous, and possessive—breaking his rules and my boundaries, claiming me for another night only to leave again. But now, it means everything. I never expected more than a single night with him. I didn't foresee being thrust back together by the product of our lust. It didn't occur to me that while fighting our feelings, we may have built something worth fighting for. Most of all, I never thought something so perfect could grow from a relationship that had always been founded on temptation.​​

As he did in WHO NOT HOW, Dr. Benjamin Hardy shares one of Dan Sullivan’s simple yet profound teachings that until now has been known only to his Strategic Coach clients: unsuccessful people focus on “The Gap,” but successful people focus on “The Gain.” " [T]his one simple concept is a masterclass on positive psychology, healthy relationships, mental well-being, and high-performance. Everything that psychologists know about how to create a high-functioning and successful person can be achieved using The GAP and the GAIN."- Dr. Benjamin Hardy Most people, especially highly ambitious people, are unhappy because of how they measure their progress. We all have an "ideal," a moving target that is always out of reach. When we measure ourselves against that ideal, we're in "the GAP." However, when we measure ourselves against our previous selves, we're in "the GAIN." That is where the GAP and the GAIN concept comes in. It was developed by legendary entrepreneur coach Dan Sullivan and is based on his work with tens of thousands of successful entrepreneurs. When Dan's coaching clients periodically take stock of all that they've accomplished-both personally and professionally-they are often shocked at how much they have actually achieved. They weren't able to appreciate their progress because no matter how much they were getting done, they were usually measuring themselves against their ideals or goals. In this book you will learn that measuring your current self vs. your former self has enormous psychological benefits. And that's really the key to this deceptively simple yet multi-layered concept that will have you feeling good, feeling grateful, and feeling like you are making progress even when times are tough, which will in turn bolster motivation, confidence, and future success. If you're finding that happiness eludes you no matter how much you've achieved, then learning this easy mindset shift will set you on a life-changing path to greater fulfillment and success.

If you're like most people, you probably believe that your identity is stable. But in fact, your identity is constantly changing - often outside your conscious awareness and sometimes even against your wishes - to reflect the interests of the groups of which you're a part. And that fluid identity has a powerful influence over your feelings, beliefs, and behaviours. In THE POWER OF US, psychologists Packer and Van Bavel integrate their own cutting-edge research in psychology, neuroscience and economics to explain what identity really is and show how to harness its dynamic nature to: Increase our productivity - Improve physical and psychological health - Overcome our individual prejudice - Unlock our altruism - Break the political gridlock - Galvanize others to solve controversial global problems Along the way, they explain such seemingly unrelated phenomenon as why men cry at football games but not funerals, why the history of slavery in U.S. counties is one of the best predictors of current day racism, and why Canada keeps a national reserve of maple syrup. Packed with fascinating insights, vivid case studies, and pioneering research, THE POWER OF US will change the way you understand yourself - and those around you - forever.

Sleeping hot guy? Check. Fancy hotel room? Check. The only thing covering me—a sheet? Check. Ring on my finger? Check. Fu*trumpet. Why is there a ring on my finger? Ever woke up in a hotel room, married to a guy you just met? No? Just me? I guess after getting arrested, changing clothes with strangers and dancing in a fountain, my new marital status is the least of my worries. Besides, would it really be so terrible being married to my dream guy? Note from the author: In order not to get kicked out of the good (okay goodish.... fine, sometimes good) girls club, I'd like to point out that this is a steamy romcom and my characters use bad language (sometimes) and like to get it on.

'Wonderfully stimulating... will teach you to see around corners' -- Tim Harford 'A paean to cognitive agility and the elasticity of the imagination' -- The Economist 'A tightly written prescription for smart thinking' -- Financial Times The power of mental models to make better decisions We're always told that humans make bad decisions and that more data is better. But this is backwards: people are actually good at decisions because we use mental models and can envision new realities outside of data. Great outcomes don't depend so much on the final moment of choosing but on generating better alternatives to choose between. That's framing. It's a cognitive muscle we can strengthen to improve our lives, work and future -- to meet our moment of economic upheaval, social tensions and existential threats. Framers shows how.

This novel in the scintillating Tyrant series brings the epic siege of Rhodes in 306 BC to spectacular life. The death of Alexander the Great was the signal to begin the greatest war in human history - a war that swept like a firestorm from one end of the known world to the other, as his former generals fought like jackals to make his vast empire their own. By 305 BC, the most powerful players in this deadly game faced each other across the Mediterranean: Ptolemy, the master of Egypt, and Antigonus One-Eye, master of Asia. And between them, the island of Rhodes, a strategic fortress city that neither could afford to cede to the enemy. But trapped in the city was one man with the courage and determination to save it from destruction. A man who, surrounded by his closest friends and the woman he loved, simply could not afford to fail. A man called Satyrus.

Bestselling author and acclaimed physicist Lawrence Krauss offers a paradigm-shifting view of how everything that exists came to be in the first place. “Where did the universe come from? What was there before it? What will the future bring? And finally, why is there something rather than nothing?” One of the few prominent scientists today to have crossed the chasm between science and popular culture, Krauss describes the staggeringly beautiful experimental observations and mind-bending new theories that demonstrate not only can something arise from nothing, something will always arise from nothing. With a new preface about the significance of the discovery of the Higgs particle, A Universe from Nothing uses Krauss’s characteristic wry humor and wonderfully clear explanations to take us back to the beginning of the beginning, presenting the most recent evidence for how our universe evolved—and the implications for how it’s going to end. Provocative, challenging, and delightfully readable, this is a game-changing look at the most basic underpinning of existence and a powerful antidote to outmoded philosophical, religious, and scientific thinking.

' An absolutely witty, swoon worthy behind the scenes romp! Delightful from beginning to end! ' Julie Murphy, No.1 New York Times bestselling author of Dumplin' Olivia Dade returns with another utterly charming romantic comedy about a devil-may-care actor - who cares more than anyone knows - and the no-nonsense woman hired to keep him in line.

When all that reckless emotion explodes into a bar fight, the tabloids and public agree: his star is falling. Enter Lauren, the former therapist hired to keep him in line. Compared to her previous work, watching over a handsome but impulsive actor shouldn't be especially difficult. But the more time she spends with Alex, the harder it is to hold on to her professionalism, and her heart . . . When another scandal lands him in major hot water, and costs Lauren her job, Alex becomes determined to keep his impossibly stubborn and extremely endearing minder in his life any way he can. On a road trip up the California coast together, he intends to show her exactly what a falling star will do to catch the woman he loves . . . Praise for Olivia Dade ' I adore All the Feels .
