My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (and as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May. Then one night, in pursuance of a murder inquiry, I tried to take a witness statement from someone who was dead but disturbingly voluble, and that brought me to the attention of Inspector Nightingale, the last wizard in England. Now I'm a Detective Constable and a trainee wizard, the first apprentice in fifty years, and my world has become somewhat more complicated: nests of vampires in Purley, negotiating a truce between the warring god and goddess of the Thames, and digging up graves in Covent Garden ... and there's something festering at the heart of the city I love, a malicious vengeful spirit that takes ordinary Londoners and twists them into grotesque mannequins to act out its drama of violence and despair. The spirit of riot and rebellion has awakened in the city, and it's falling to me to bring order out of chaos - or die trying.

"A definitive document of a world in transition: I won't be alone in returning to it for clarity and consolation for many years to come." ?Jia Tolentino, author of Trick Mirror: Reflections on Self-Delusion A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice and a January 2020 IndieNext Pick. An Amazon Best Book of January. One of Vogue 's 22 Books to Read This Winter, The Washington Post 's 10 Books to Read in January, ELLE's 12 Best Books to Read in 2020, The New York Times 's 12 Books to Read in January, Esquire 's 15 Best Winter Books, Paste 's 10 Most Anticipated Nonfiction Books of 2020, and Entertainment Weekly 's 50 Most Anticipated Books of 2020. The prescient, page-turning account of a journey in Silicon Valley: a defining memoir of our digital age In her mid-twenties, at the height of tech industry idealism, Anna Wiener—stuck, broke, and looking for meaning in her work, like any good millennial--left a job in book publishing for the promise of the new digital economy. She moved from New York to San Francisco, where she landed at a big-data startup in the heart of the Silicon Valley bubble: a world of surreal extravagance, dubious success, and fresh-faced entrepreneurs hell-bent on domination, glory, and, of course, progress . Anna arrived amidst a massive cultural shift, as the tech industry rapidly transformed into a locus of wealth and power rivaling Wall Street. But amid the company ski vacations and in-office speakeasies, boyish camaraderie and ride-or-die corporate fealty, a new Silicon Valley began to emerge: one in far over its head, one that enriched itself at the expense of the idyllic future it claimed to be building. Part coming-of-age-story, part portrait of an already-bygone era, Anna Wiener’s memoir is a rare first-person glimpse into high-flying, reckless startup culture at a time of unchecked ambition, unregulated surveillance, wild fortune, and accelerating political power. With wit, candor, and heart, Anna deftly charts the tech industry’s shift from self-appointed world savior to democracy-endangering liability, alongside a personal narrative of aspiration, ambivalence, and disillusionment. Unsparing and incisive, Uncanny Valley is a cautionary tale, and a revelatory interrogation of a world reckoning with consequences its unwitting designers are only beginning to understand.

At his side was a wounded warrior of the Blood Angels, Zephon. Now, Land faces a great challenge – to repair the damage done to Zephon, partly as a result of the tech-priest's own tinkering. But how can Land succeed where the greatest of Apothecaries have failed? And when all is done, will the only person the tech-priest comes close to calling friend still be the same man?

"I believe that the discoveries in this book can change our understanding of how we store emotional experiences and in so doing, change our lives. The Emotion Code has already changed many lives around the world, and it is my hope that millions more will be led to use this simple tool to heal themselves and their loved ones."—Tony Robbins In this newly revised and expanded edition of The Emotion Code , renowned holistic physician and lecturer Dr. Bradley Nelson skillfully lays bare the inner workings of the subconscious mind. He reveals how emotionally-charged events from your past can still be haunting you in the form of "trapped emotions"—emotional energies that literally inhabit your body. These trapped emotions can fester in your life and body, creating pain, malfunction, and eventual disease. They can also extract a heavy mental and emotional toll on you, impacting how you think, the choices that you make, and the level of success and abundance you are able to achieve. Perhaps most damaging of all, trapped emotional energies can gather around your heart, cutting off your ability to give and receive love. The Emotion Code is a powerful and simple way to rid yourself of this unseen baggage. Dr. Nelson’s method gives you the tools to identify and release the trapped emotions in your life, eliminating your “emotional baggage,” and opening your heart and body to the positive energies of the world. Filled with real-world examples from many years of clinical practice, The Emotion Code is a distinct and authoritative work that has become a classic on self-healing.

The Duke's Quandary by Callie Hutton   London 1814...  Drake, Duke of Manchester is searching the Marriage Mart for a perfect bride. He wants a woman who is poised, sophisticated, and worthy of the title Duchess. But most of all, he wants a woman who does not want the useless emotion of love. Socially awkward Miss Penelope Clayton isn't meant for marriage. A serious botanist, she has no desire to wed, so being forced by her guardian to participate in the Season to find a husband is torture. She'll never fit in with the ton , especially if they discover she's been pretending to be a man within the scientific community. As Drake's family makes over Penelope, turning her from naive bluestocking to enchanting debutante, he is put upon to introduce her to society and eligible bachelors. Despite dance lessons and new gowns, Penelope is the opposite of poised and sophisticated as she stumbles from one mishap to the next. Why then, does he find it so hard to resist her?

The Trinity is one of the most basic doctrines in Christianity—and one of the key doctrines that separates Christianity from other religions. This full color ebook on The Trinity explains the Trinity in clear easy-to-understand terms and illustrations. The Trinity gives dozens of Scriptures and background documentation that supports the belief that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all God, not three names for the same Person. This bestseller also answers misunderstandings that cults and other religions may have. The Trinity ebook helps believers know what they believe and why they believe it about this critical Christian doctrine. In 12-panels of rich, well-research information, the ebook addresses topics such as– •What Christians believe about the Trinity •The Trinity and the Bible •Misunderstandings about the Trinity •How early Christians dealt with misunderstandings •The early Church and the Creeds •Important Bible verses and references The ebook provides interesting facts about the history of the Trinity, for example: •More than 60 New Testament Bible passages mention the three Persons together. •Theophilus, sixth bishop of Antioch, Syria, is the first person known to have used the word "Trinity" in his work, Refutation of Autolycus (AD 168). It's probably not surprising that a doctrine that's as critical as the Trinity is at the center of numerous misunderstandings. For instance, God is not, 1+1+1=3; God is 1x1x1=1. The Trinity ebook addresses six of the most common Trinity misunderstandings: •Misunderstanding 1: "The word Trinity does not appear in the Bible; it is a belief made up by 4th century Christians." •Misunderstanding 2: "Christians believe there are three Gods." •Misunderstanding 3: "Jesus is not God." •Misunderstanding 4: "Jesus is a lesser God than the Father." •Misunderstanding 5: "The Father, the Son, and the Spirit are just different titles for Jesus, or three different ways that God has revealed himself." •Misunderstanding 6: "Jesus wasn’t really fully God and fully man." The Trinity ebook reveals how early Christians addressed these misunderstandings through some of the earliest statements of faith including: •The Apostles' Creed written in the second century •The Nicene Creed AD 325 •Athanasian Creed written c. AD 400 •Chalcedoian Creed written in AD 451 The ebook includes the full text of each of these four creeds. One of the most powerful sections of the ebook includes a chart that shows that God and Jesus Christ share10 key traits that are mentioned in the Old Testament as applying to no-one but God. Another chart shows seven Divine attributes shared by Father, Son and Holy Spirit with Scripture references for each.

Patrik Hedström och hans kollegor på Tanumshede polisstation har haft en lugn vinter som mestadels präglats av rutinarbete. Men när våren kommer börjar det hända saker. Samma dag som deras nya kollega Hanna Kruse anländer får de ett larm om en bilolycka. Den kvinnliga föraren stinker av alkohol och fallet är på väg att avskrivas som en tragisk olycka. Men en rad mystiska omständigheter får Patrik att ana oråd och till slut visar det sig att kvinnan blivit mördad. Frågan är bara av vem. Utredningen står länge och stampar, men ett genombrott sker när Patrik upptäcker att det finns kopplingar till liknande fall runt om i landet. Men vad är sambandet mellan offren? Varför väljer mördaren just dem? Och hur ska de kunna stoppa seriemördaren innan ytterligare en människa förlorar livet?      Samtidigt har polisen i Tanumshede fullt upp på annat håll. En dokusåpa har förlagts till deras lilla ort och när deltagarna i F*****g Tanum drar in i samhället väcker det mycket känslor. Kommunpolitikerna gnuggar händerna och hoppas att man på detta sätt ska kunna locka till sig fler turister, medan kritikerna klagar över de ständigt närvarande kamerorna, idolhysteri och stökiga fester. Produktionsbolaget struntar cyniskt i hur deltagarna mår och gör allt för att spä på motsättningarna. Konflikterna trappas upp allt mer tills det slutar med ett mord. Dagen efter en blöt fest hittas Big Brother-Barbie död i en soptunna. Är den skyldige någon av de mediehungriga människor som är med i programmet, eller finns mördaren utanför? Och har detta brutala mord något samband med seriemördaren som de jagar?     Patrik ställs inför sitt livs största utmaning, då han måste arbeta med två olika mordutredningar parallellt. Samtidigt närmar sig hans och Ericas bröllop med stormsteg. Slitningarna kommer som på beställning när de ska försöka balansera Patriks enorma press på jobbet med Ericas frustration över att gå hemma och tvingas ta huvudansvaret för bröllopet, vars planering diverse släktingar envisas med att lägga sig i. Hemsituationen förenklas inte heller av att Ericas syster Anna nu bor hos dem tillsammans med sina två barn. Eftersom Anna är djupt deprimerad efter att ha dödat sin man i självförsvar, får Erica axla den tunga rollen som trebarnsmor.      Olycksfågeln är en spännande, engagerande och brännande aktuell kriminalroman där Camilla Läckberg befäster sin position som Sveriges nya deckardrottning.

The phenomenon that began with A Demon’s Promise continues in Book 2 of the Soul Savers series. Change is coming. Having learned to cope with her grief, Alexis has settled into a quiet and predictable life. Until now, when a vampire appears in her room, ordering her to stop exposing his secrets in her blockbuster books or he'll come for her family. Although the threat feels uncannily real, it has to be a dream. Because monsters may exist, but vampires do not. Change is inevitable. Erratic thoughts suddenly consume Alexis's mind, inexplicable impulses overcome her body, and her evil inheritance simmers in her soul.

Maria Kallion ensimmäinen tapaus Opiskelijakuoron railakkaat harjoitukset helsinkiläishuvilalla katkeavat, kun ykkösbasso Jukka Peltonen löydetään rantavedestä kuolleena. Tapaus on näytön paikka Maria Kalliolle, jonka uraa rikososaston ylikonstaapelina rasittaa se, että hän on sekä nuori että nainen – ja vielä punatukkainen! Kuoron hilpeän julkisivun takaa löytyy katkeria intohimoja, eikä niiden penkomista helpota havainto, että joukossa on Marian vanhoja kavereita. Taas mentiin, ajattelin etsiessäni kaapista jotakin säädyllistä päällepantavaa. Virkahame oli Pasilassa, joten paremmat farkut saivat kelvata. Tukka oli märkä, mutta kuivaaja pörröttäisi sen vain punaiseksi takuksi. Yritin sutia meikintapaista punoittavaan naamaani ja irvistin peilikuvalleni. Se esitti jotakuta muuta kuin kunnioitettavaa naispuolista poliisikonstaapelia: Vihreänkeltaiset silmät näyttivät kissalta lainatuilta, karkean köysihamppukiharan väriä oli tehostettu punaisella purkista (vain Melody ja minä...). Epäkunnioitusta herättävin piirre oli pystynenäni, jonka aurinko oli kirjavoittanut kesakoilla. Suuta oli joku väittänyt sensuelliksi, mikä suomeksi merkitsee hivenen liian paksua alahuulta. Minunko, kakaran näköisen naisentekeleen, oli nyt lähdettävä puolustamaan lakia ja järjestystä Vuosaaren perukoille? Suomen suosituimpiin kirjailijoihin kuuluva Leena Lehtolainen tunnetaan erityisesti Maria Kallio ja Hilja Ilveskero -romaaneistaan. Hän on kirjoittanut myös useita dramaattisia perhe- ja avioliittoromaaneja.

Pelolla on hinta; siitä voi hyötyä tai maksaa kalliisti. Pelon tunne määrittää yllättävällä tavalla käyttäytymistämme ja on läsnä lähes jokaisessa elämämme tärkeässä päätöksessä. Pelon hinta kertoo pelon usein väärinymmärretystä luonteesta ja siitä, miten pelko voi romahduttaa toimintakyvyn mutta myös parantaa suoritusta niin bisneksessä kuin yksityiselämässä. Kirja pureutuu pelon eri ilmenemismuotoihin ja osoittaa, miten tunteen tuhoavat muodot voitetaan ja hyödyt otetaan käyttöön. Henkka Hyppönen on luova johtaja ja yritysvalmentaja, joka tunnetaan tällä hetkellä erityisesti Hyvät ja huonot uutiset -ohjelman paneelin puheenjohtajana.

#1 bestselling author John Grisham’s The Reckoning is his most powerful, surprising, and suspenseful thriller yet.   “A murder mystery, a courtroom drama, a family saga… The Reckoning  is Grisham's argument that he's not just a boilerplate thriller writer . Most jurors will think the counselor has made his case.” — USA Today     October 1946, Clanton, Mississippi Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippi’s favorite son—a decorated World War II hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning he rose early, drove into town, and committed a shocking crime.  Pete's only statement about it—to the sheriff, to his lawyers, to the judge, to the jury, and to his family—was: "I have nothing to say." He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave.             In a major novel unlike anything he has written before, John Grisham takes us on an incredible journey, from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II; from an insane asylum filled with secrets to the Clanton courtroom where Pete’s defense attorney tries desperately to save him.  Reminiscent of the finest tradition of Southern Gothic storytelling,  The Reckoning  would not be complete without Grisham’s signature layers of legal suspense, and he delivers on every page.

I was my dad's vinyl-wallah: I changed his records while he lounged around drinking tea, and that's how I know my Argo from my Tempo. And it's why, when Dr Walid called me to the morgue to listen to a corpse, I recognised the tune it was playing. Something violently supernatural had happened to the victim, strong enough to leave its imprint like a wax cylinder recording. Cyrus Wilkinson, part-time jazz saxophonist and full-time accountant, had apparently dropped dead of a heart attack just after finishing a gig in a Soho jazz club. He wasn't the first. No one was going to let me exhume corpses to see if they were playing my tune, so it was back to old-fashioned legwork, starting in Soho, the heart of the scene. I didn't trust the lovely Simone, Cyrus' ex-lover, professional jazz kitten and as inviting as a Rubens' portrait, but I needed her help: there were monsters stalking Soho, creatures feeding off that special gift that separates the great musician from someone who can raise a decent tune. What they take is beauty. What they leave behind is sickness, failure and broken lives. And as I hunted them, my investigation got tangled up in another story: a brilliant trumpet player, Richard 'Lord' Grant - my father - who managed to destroy his own career, twice. That's the thing about policing: most of the time you're doing it to maintain public order. Occasionally you're doing it for justice. And maybe once in a career, you're doing it for revenge.

Ben Aaronovitch has stormed the bestseller list with his superb London crime series. A unique blend of police procedural, loving detail about the greatest character of all, London, and a dash of the supernatural. A mutilated body in Crawley. Another killer on the loose. The prime suspect is one Robert Weil - an associate of the twisted magician known as the Faceless Man? Or just a common garden serial killer? Before PC Peter Grant can get his head round the case, a town planner going under a tube train and a stolen grimoire are adding to his case-load. So far so London. But then Peter gets word of something very odd happening in Elephant and Castle, on an housing estate designed by a nutter, built by charlatans and inhabited by the truly desperate. Is there a connection? And if there is, why oh why did it have to be South of the River? Full of warmth, sly humour and a rich cornucopia of things you never knew about London, Aaronovitch's series has swiftly added Grant's magical London to Rebus' Edinburgh and Morse's Oxford as a destination of choice for those who love their crime with something a little extra.

Progression in the Police Force is less easy. Especially when you work in a department of two. A department that doesn't even officially exist. A department that if you did describe it to most people would get you laughed at. And then there's his love life. The last person he fell for ended up seriously dead. It wasn't his fault, but still. Now something horrible is happening in the labyrinth of tunnels that make up the tube system that honeycombs the ancient foundations of London. And delays on the Northern line is the very least of it. Time to call in the Met's Economic and Specialist Crime Unit 9, aka 'The Folly'. Time to call in PC Peter Grant, Britain's Last Wizard.

Warning: This is not a typical love story. This is an all-consuming, soul-crushing, tear-your-heart-into-pieces story. It’s intense, gritty and raw, dark and disturbing, and it doesn’t happen overnight. This is an epic love story that knows no boundaries and has no time limits. It grows and develops—with hurt, sacrifice, and heartache—over the span of a lifetime. Eva Fox is the princess of the Silver Demons Motorcycle Club. Growing up with bikers in the club lifestyle is all that she knows. When she’s a young girl, Eva meets the reason for her existence. Deuce West is the sexy, biker bad-ass of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. Like Eva, he was born and raised in the club—but that’s where the similarities end. Their first meeting is innocent, but as Eva matures into a woman, their chance reunions evolve into a fit of lust and love. Fate continues to bring them together time and time again, but their twisted journey is filled with pain, betrayal, and bloodshed that could tear them apart. Eva sees in Deuce what he cannot see in himself—a man worthy of love—and Eva spends her lifetime proving to him that her undeniable love is the one thing he can’t live without. This is Eva and Deuce’s story. It wasn’t easy. Nothing worth doing ever is. And love is worth everything.

HBO’s hit series A GAME OF THRONES is based on George R R Martin’s internationally bestselling series A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has set the benchmark for contemporary epic fantasy.

This is a high-octane adventure from 'the most powerful imagination in science fiction' (Ken Follett). Fight together - or die alone . . . In the twenty-third century, humanity is enjoying a comparative utopia. Yet life on Earth is about to change, forever.

The supposedly benign Olyix plan to harvest humanity, in order to carry us to their god at the end of the universe.

Uusi murhasaari on noussut merestä! Tervetuloa Doggerlandiin! Se sijaitsee siellä missä brittidekkari ja skandikrimi kohtaavat. Siellä tapahtuu murhia, ja niitä ratkoo elämänsä solmuun saanut komisario Karen Eiken Hornby. Harha-askel on ensimmäinen osa kuvitteelliseen Doggerlandin saarivaltioon sijoittuvaa rikossarjaa, jossa tuulisen saariryhmän suolantuoksuinen elämä avautuu lukijalle hämmästyttävän todellisena. Komisario Karen Eiken Hornbylla on kamala krapula. Ja morkkis. Juuri tämän miehen vierestä hän ei olisi koskaan halunnut herätä. Ja pahempaa on edessä: hänet kiskotaan suoraan sängystä tutkimaan murhaa, jonka uhri ei voisi olla hänen kannaltaan kiusallisempi. Pitkään Britanniassa asunut Karen on palannut kotiin Doggerlandiin nuolemaan haavojaan, ja nyt hän joutuu peittelemään omia harha-askeleitaan voidakseen tutkia murhaa. Paluumuuttajaan ei suhtauduta ystävällisesti töissä eikä kylillä, ja Karenin oma objektiivisuus alkaa horjua, kun hän kiintyy uhrin tyttäreen. Onko murha hetken kiivastuksissa tehty, vai vievätkö jäljet vuosikymmenten taa kummalliseen jaksoon saarivaltion historiassa? Ja haluaako Karen edes tietää vastausta? Maria Adolfsson on tukholmalainen kirjailija ja viestinnän ammattilainen. Harha-askel on hänen ensimmäinen rikosromaaninsa, ja Doggerland-sarja on herättänyt suurta kiinnostusta kansainvälisestikin.

We live in an age of unprecedented opportunity: with ambition, drive, and talent, you can rise to the top of your chosen profession regardless of where you started out. But with opportunity comes responsibility. Companies today aren't managing their knowledge workers careers. Instead, you must be your own chief executive officer. That means it's up to you to carve out your place in the world and know when to change course. And it's up to you to keep yourself engaged and productive during a career that may span some 50 years. In Managing Oneself , Peter Drucker explains how to do it. The keys: Cultivate a deep understanding of yourself by identifying your most valuable strengths and most dangerous weaknesses; Articulate how you learn and work with others and what your most deeply held values are; and Describe the type of work environment where you can make the greatest contribution. Only when you operate with a combination of your strengths and self-knowledge can you achieve true and lasting excellence. Managing Oneself identifies the probing questions you need to ask to gain the insights essential for taking charge of your career. Peter Drucker was a writer, teacher, and consultant. His 34 books have been published in more than 70 languages. He founded the Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management, and counseled 13 governments, public services institutions, and major corporations.

“Immensely readable…A hair-raising, cautionary tale about the burgeoning, post-Stuxnet world of state-sponsored hackers.” — Washington Post From Wired senior writer Andy Greenberg comes the true story of the most devastating cyberattack in history and the desperate hunt to identify and track the elite Russian agents behind it In 2014, the world witnessed the start of a mysterious series of cyberattacks. Targeting American utility companies, NATO, and electric grids in Eastern Europe, the strikes grew ever more brazen. They culminated in the summer of 2017, when the malware known as NotPetya was unleashed, penetrating, disrupting, and paralyzing some of the world's largest businesses—from drug manufacturers to software developers to shipping companies. At the attack's epicenter in Ukraine, ATMs froze. The railway and postal systems shut down. Hospitals went dark. NotPetya spread around the world, inflicting an unprecedented ten billion dollars in damage—the largest, most destructive cyberattack the world had ever seen. The hackers behind these attacks are quickly gaining a reputation as the most dangerous team of cyberwarriors in history: a group known as Sandworm. Working in the service of Russia's military intelligence agency, they represent a persistent, highly skilled force, one whose talents are matched by their willingness to launch broad, unrestrained attacks on the most critical infrastructure of their adversaries. They target government and private sector, military and civilians alike. A chilling, globe-spanning detective story, Sandworm considers the danger this force poses to our national security and stability. As the Kremlin's role in foreign government manipulation comes into greater focus, Sandworm exposes the realities not just of Russia's global digital offensive, but of an era where warfare ceases to be waged on the battlefield. It reveals how the lines between digital and physical conflict, between wartime and peacetime, have begun to blur—with world-shaking implications.

'Zappa The Hard Way' is the story of Frank Zappa's last ever world tour that ended in mutiny. In 1988 Frank Zappa toured with a twelve-piece band that had rehearsed for months, learned a repertoire of over 100 songs and played an entirely different set each night. It is why, in Zappa's own words, it was "the best band you never heard in your life" - a reference to East Coast American audiences who never got the chance to see this particular touring ensemble. Zappa appointed bass player Scott Thunes to rehearse the group in his absence. In carrying out this role, Thunes was apparently abrasive, blunt and rude to the other members and two factions quickly developed: Thunes and stunt guitarist Mike Keneally on the one side; the remaining nine band members on the other. The atmosphere deteriorated as the tour progressed through America and on to Europe. Before leaving Europe, Zappa told the band that there were ten more weeks of concerts booked in the USA and asked them: "If Scott's in the band, will you do the tour?" With the exception of Keneally, they all said "no". Rather than replace Thunes, Zappa cancelled almost three months of concerts and never toured again - claiming to have lost $400,000 in the process. 'Zappa The Hard Way' documents that tour. If you think touring can be fun, think again! Yes there were groupies and the usual paraphernalia associated with rock 'n' roll, but there was also bitterness and skulduggery on a scale that no one could imagine. Author Andrew Greenaway has interviewed the surviving band members and others associated with the tour to unravel the goings on behind the scenes that drove Zappa to call a halt to proceedings, despite the huge personal financial losses. This paperback edition includes a foreword by Zappa's sister Candy, and an afterword by Pauline Butcher, Zappa's former secretary and author of 'Freak Out! My Life With Frank Zappa', 'Zappa The Hard Way' might just be the best book you've never read in your life!

Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey-Maturin tales are widely acknowledged to be the greatest series of historical novels ever written. Now, for the first time, they are available in electronic book format, so a whole new generation of readers can be swept away on the adventure of a lifetime. This is the ninth book in the series. Uniquely among authors of naval fiction, Patrick O’Brian allows his characters to develop with experience. The Jack Aubrey of Treason’s Harbour has a record of successes equal to that of the most brilliant of Nelson’s band of brothers, and he is no less formidable or decisive in action or strategy. But he is wiser, kinder, gentler too. Much of the plot of Treason’s Harbour depends on intelligence and counter-intelligence, a field in which Aubrey’s friend Stephen Maturin excels. Through him we get a clearer insight into the life and habits of the sea officers of Nelson’s time than we would ever obtain seeing things through their own eyes. There is plenty of action and excitement in this novel, but it is the atmosphere of a Malta crowded with senior officers waiting for news of what the French are up to, and wondering whether the war will end before their turn comes for prize money and for fame, that is here so freshly and vividly conveyed. Reviews '…full of the energy that comes from a writer having struck a vein… Patrick O'Brian is unquestionably the Homer of the Napoleonic wars.' James Hamilton- Paterson 'You are in for the treat of your lives. Thank God for Patrick O'Brian: his genius illuminates the literature of the English language, and lightens the lives of those who read him.' Kevin Myers, Irish Times 'In a highly competitive field it goes straight to the top. A real first-rater.' Mary Renault 'I never enjoyed a novel about the sea more. It is not only that the author describes the handling of a ship of 1800 with an accuracy that is as comprehensible as it is detailed, a remarkable feat in itself. Mr O'Brian's three chief characters are drawn with no less depth of sympathy than the vessels he describes, a rare achievement save in the greatest writers of this genre. It deserves the widest readership.' Irish Times About the author Patrick O’Brian, until his death in 2000, was one of our greatest contemporary novelists. He is the author of the acclaimed Aubrey–Maturin tales and the biographer of Joseph Banks and Picasso. He is the author of many other books including Testimonies, and his Collected Short Stories. In 1995 he was the first recipient of the Heywood Hill Prize for a lifetime’s contribution to literature. In the same year he was awarded the CBE. In 1997 he received an honorary doctorate of letters from Trinity College, Dublin. He lived for many years in South West France and he died in Dublin in January 2000.

Three ingredients for a hot summer: sun, sand, and sizzling sex. Following a nasty breakup with her ex, Kayla English is eager to get her erotic writing mojo back on track. Except progress on her current book has flatlined, right along with her belief in happily-ever-after. Solution? Two weeks of solitude in the Florida sun thanks to some friends’ generous offer to house-sit their place on the beach. She didn’t count on having roommates—or on getting the sexiest peepshow of her life. Seven years after an intimate encounter rocked their worlds, business partners Tyler Bishop and Gibb Masters have kept things strictly in the friend zone. A recent storm has left them homeless, though. They figure moving into Ty’s parents’ place is preferable to roughing it elsewhere, even if it means resisting the temptation to slip between the sheets with Kayla…and each other. As the days heat up, so does their three-way attraction. But when emotions run deeper than any of them expect, three wary hearts must decide if it’s worth the risk to write their own HEA. Warning: This book brings the dirty. We’re talking dirty sex in an outdoor shower, on a boat, and on the kitchen counter with a dirty-mouthed Casanova. In other words, all the good stuff with a side of glow-in-the-dark body paint.

The definitive playbook by the pioneers of Growth Hacking, one of the hottest business methodologies in Silicon Valley and beyond. It seems hard to believe today, but there was a time when Airbnb was the best-kept secret of travel hackers and couch surfers, Pinterest was a niche web site frequented only by bakers and crafters, LinkedIn was an exclusive network for C-suite executives and top-level recruiters, Facebook was MySpace’s sorry step-brother, and Uber was a scrappy upstart that didn’t stand a chance against the Goliath that was  New York City Yellow Cabs.  So how did these companies grow from these humble beginnings into the powerhouses they are today? Contrary to popular belief, they didn’t explode to massive worldwide popularity simply by building  a great product then crossing their fingers and hoping it would catch on. There was a studied, carefully implemented methodology behind these companies’ extraordinary rise. That methodology is called Growth Hacking, and it’s practitioners include not just today’s hottest start-ups, but also companies like IBM, Walmart, and Microsoft as well as the millions of entrepreneurs, marketers, managers and executives who make up the community of Growth Hackers. Think of the Growth Hacking methodology as doing for market-share growth what Lean Start-Up did for product development, and Scrum did for productivity. It involves cross-functional teams and rapid-tempo testing and iteration that focuses  customers : attaining them, retaining them, engaging them, and motivating them to come back and buy more.    An accessible and practical toolkit that teams and companies in all industries can use to increase their customer base and market share, this book walks readers through the process of creating and executing their own custom-made growth hacking strategy. It is a must read for any marketer, entrepreneur, innovator or manger looking to replace wasteful big bets and "spaghetti-on-the-wall" approaches with more consistent, replicable, cost-effective, and data-driven results.

A new, sexy standalone from #1 New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland. Terminated for inappropriate behavior. I couldn’t believe the letter in my hands. Nine years. Nine damn years I’d worked my butt off for one of the largest companies in America, and I was fired with a form letter when I returned home from a week in Aruba. All because of a video taken when I was on vacation with my friends—a private video made on my private time. Or so I thought… Pissed off, I cracked open a bottle of wine and wrote my own letter to the gazillionaire CEO telling him what I thought of his company and its practices. I didn’t think he’d actually respond. I certainly never thought I’d suddenly become pen pals with the rich jerk. Eventually, he realized I’d been wronged and made sure I got my job back. Only…it wasn’t the only thing Grant Lexington wanted to do for me. But there was no way I was getting involved with my boss’s boss’s boss. Even if he was ridiculously gorgeous, confident, and charming. It would be completely wrong, inappropriate even. Sort of like the video that got me into trouble to begin with. Two wrongs don’t make a right. But sometimes it’s twice as fun.

What if you could combine the agility, adaptability, and cohesion of a small team with the power and resources of a giant organization? When General Stanley McChrystal took command of the Joint Special Operations Task Force in Iraq in 2003, he quickly realized that conventional military tactics were failing. The allied forces had a huge advantage in numbers, equipment and training - but none of the enemy's speed and flexibility. McChrystal and his colleagues discarded a century of conventional wisdom to create a 'team of teams' that combined extremely transparent communication with decentralized decision-making authority. Faster, flatter and more flexible, the task force beat back al-Qaeda. In this powerful book, McChrystal and his colleagues show how the challenges they faced in Iraq can be relevant to any leader. Through compelling examples, the authors demonstrate that the 'team of teams' strategy has worked everywhere from hospital emergency rooms to NASA and has the potential to transform organizations large and small.

Yhdysvaltain presidentin puolisona – ensimmäisenä afroamerikkalaisena – hän kehitti Valkoista taloa aiempaa lämminhenkisemmäksi ja tasapuolisemmaksi. Hän puhui vahvasti myös naisten ja tyttöjen puolesta ja edisti määrätietoisesti perheiden hyvinvointia ja terveyttä. Hän seisoi miehensä rinnalla tämän johtaessa Amerikkaa vaikeina aikoina. Hän jäi monien mieleen Carpool Karaoken eloisana heittäytyjänä ja tanssitaiturina. Hän kasvatti kaksi fiksua, jalat maassa olevaa tytärtä armottoman median valokeilassa.  Pohdiskelevissa ja kiehtovissa muistelmissaan Michelle Obama avaa elämäänsä ja kertoo kehityksestään: lapsuudesta Chicagon eteläosassa, työskentelystään johtotehtävissä ja tasapainoilusta äitiyden ja työn asettamien vaatimusten välillä sekä vuosista maailman kuuluisimmassa talossa. Hän kuvailee rehellisesti, eloisasti ja älykkäästi voittoja ja pettymyksiä, sekä julkisia että yksityisiä. Hän kertoo tarinansa omilla sanoillaan ja omalla tavallaan.  Kirja on lämmin, viisas ja paljastava tilinteko sielukkaalta ja merkittävältä naiselta, joka on vakaasti kulkenut omaa tietään odotusten risti­paineista huolimatta ja joka innostaa kaikkia tekemään samoin.

One of the most valuable skills in our economy is becoming increasingly rare. If you master this skill, you'll achieve extraordinary results. Deep Work is an indispensable guide to anyone seeking focused success in a distracted world. 'Deep work' is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. Coined by author and professor Cal Newport on his popular blog Study Hacks, deep work will make you better at what you do, let you achieve more in less time and provide the sense of true fulfilment that comes from the mastery of a skill. In short, deep work is like a superpower in our increasingly competitive economy. And yet most people, whether knowledge workers in noisy open-plan offices or creatives struggling to sharpen their vision, have lost the ability to go deep - spending their days instead in a frantic blur of email and social media, not even realising there's a better way. A mix of cultural criticism and actionable advice, DEEP WORK takes the reader on a journey through memorable stories -- from Carl Jung building a stone tower in the woods to focus his mind, to a social media pioneer buying a round-trip business class ticket to Tokyo to write a book free from distraction in the air -- and surprising suggestions, such as the claim that most serious professionals should quit social media and that you should practice being bored. Put simply: developing and cultivating a deep work practice is one of the best decisions you can make in an increasingly distracted world and this book will point the way.

Hookups weren’t for her. Rachel knew that. She was a good girl— sigh —she’d always been a good girl. Except when it came to him . She’d met the him in question in a bar of all places and his lean strength, gorgeous face, and way-too-charming personality had combined to shatter her defenses. All of a sudden she’d been doing all of those “dangerous, bad girl” things her grandmother had once warned her of. And just like her grandma had predicted, he’d vanished come morning. No note. No exchanged numbers. She hadn’t even known his name. Fine. Whatever. Rachel had chalked it up to a horrible—albeit, wholly pleasurable—mistake and moved on. She was the assistant to Heather O’Keith, a kick ass, take-no-prisoners CEO of a billion dollar corporation, she didn’t have time to sit around and worry over a man. But then Heather had gotten her happily ever after by marrying equally successful business entrepreneur, Clay Steele, and Rachel discovered that she had to work in close, day-to-day contact with him. Sebastian Henley. The man from the bar. The sexy, gorgeous, irresistible disappearing man from the bar. And he still made her want to do bad, bad things.

Bec Darden was a high-powered attorney who had spent her entire adult life building a fearsome reputation both in the courtroom and the boardroom. But once upon a time, she was also a naïve and romantic—aka idiotic —soul who’d married her college sweetheart on a whim just before graduating. She and Luke were young and in love and— No surprise, her marriage had been short-lived. Explosive. Miserable. And incredibly, incredibly short-lived. But now Luke Pearson was back in her life and with the worst possible news. Her marriage, the one she’d almost immediately regretted, and the subsequent divorce she’d paid through the teeth for by working insane hours and basically not sleeping for several years hadn’t happened. As in she was still freaking married. Luke had been sexy in high school, gorgeous in college, but he was even hotter as a grown man and his reappearance in her life hadn’t done anything to dampen the attraction she felt for him. But Bec had already learned that sex wasn’t everything. One broken heart was enough, and she wasn’t in the market to give Luke another chance at shattering her all over again. He needed to sign the divorce papers she drafted and leave her to her life. Except . . . what did they say about best laid plans? Because Luke wouldn’t sign.

Sylvin tarina Kekkosen rinnalla Ensimmäinen nainen on historiallinen romaani Sylvi Kekkosesta. Se on romaani naisesta, joka löytää itsensä ja kirjailijanäänensä ja toivoo, että yhden elämän elettyään ehtisi vielä aloittaa toisen. " - Eipä voi kovin monessa maassa ensimmäinen nainen yksikseen liikuskella. - Minä en siihen lupia ala kyselemään." Julkinen rooli kätki radikaalin Sylvin, joka oli yhtaikaa ujo ja rohkea, lempeä ja pisteliäs, turvallisuushakuinen emo ja kapinallisuutta suosiva feministi. Vaativassa asemassaan hän varjeli itsenäisyyttään ja säilytti omat ystävänsä. Kun yksi tärkeimmistä, kirjailija Marja-Liisa Vartio kuolee kesällä 1966, Sylvi lähtee Katerman mökin rauhaan. Toisaalla Sylvin toinen ystävä, kuvanveistäjä Essi Renvall pohtii Sylvin muotokuvaluonnoksen äärellä, miten ilmentää veistoksella Sylvin monitahoisuutta. Voiko toista koskaan todella tuntea ja entä jos ei pääsekään kasvamaan omaan mittaansa? Johanna Venho on palkittu runoilija ja kirjailija. Ensimmäinen nainen on Venhon ensimmäinen historiallinen romaani. Sylvin tarinassa Venho pohtii naisen elämänkaarta, identiteettiä ja itseilmaisun rajoja kudelmalla faktaa ja fiktiota, tarkasti ja herkästi.

"Tom Wolfe at his very best" ( The New York Times Book Review ) Millions of words have poured forth about man's trip to the moon, but until now few people have had a sense of the most engrossing side of the adventure; namely, what went on in the minds of the astronauts themselves - in space, on the moon, and even during certain odysseys on earth. It is this, the inner life of the astronauts, that Tom Wolfe describes with his almost uncanny empathetic powers, that made The Right Stuff a classic.

All You Need to Know About the Music Business by veteran music lawyer Don Passman—dubbed “the industry bible” by the Los Angeles Times —is now updated to address the biggest transformation of the music industry yet: streaming. For more than twenty-five years, All You Need to Know About the Music Business has been universally regarded as the definitive guide to the music industry. Now in its tenth edition, Donald Passman leads novices and experts alike through what has been the most profound change in the music business since the days of wax cylinders and piano rolls. For the first time in history, music is no longer monetized by selling something—it’s monetized by how many times listeners stream a song. And that completely changes the ecosystem of the business, as Passman explains in detail. Since the advent of file-sharing technology in the late 1990s to the creation of the iPod, the music industry has been teetering on the brink of a major transformation—and with the newest switch to streaming music, this change has finally come to pass. Passman’s comprehensive guide offers timely, authoritative information from how to select and hire a winning team of advisors and structure their commissions and fees; navigate the ins and outs of record deals, songwriting, publishing, and copyrights; maximize concert, touring, and merchandising deals; and how the game is played in a streaming world. “If you want to be in music, you have to read this book,” says Adam Levine, lead singer and guitarist of Maroon 5. With its proven track record, this updated edition of All You Need to Know About the Music Business is more essential than ever for musicians, songwriters, lawyers, agents, promoters, publishers, executives, and managers—anyone trying to navigate the rapid transformation of the industry.
