Power of Persuasion
Almost everyone can admit that at one time or the other, they have been tricked or pushed into something because of naivety or the power of influence. For whichever motive, we have been an easy target for the pitches of fundraisers, peddlers and operators of one type or the other. While some of these people have good motives, a few of them may have dishonorable intensions. Whenever you find yourself in possession of unwanted subscriptions of newspapers, magazines or even newsletters, someone must have persuaded you into filling in your details even though you did not have an interest from the start. This opens up the debate on the issue of compliance and the factors that can cause you to say yes to another person because of the techniques and language that they use to convince you. If you have been keen enough, there is a certain way in which a request is stated if it is to be successful. A slight alteration may see the request rejected. ...

If you tend to lack patience and are ready to start leading a more emotionally-balanced and successful life, then this book is for you!
Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet, or Kindle device.
In today's culture of instant gratification where credit cards let you pay with money you don't yet have, where articles have to be short or you'll never read them, and where you spend more time deleting emails than you actually have for reading those you need to, patience has become a dying art. We've been trained to want something five minutes ago, though yesterday would be even better. Impatience has become ingrained in us. Problem is, this isn't working to our benefit. From a health perspective, impatience contributes to stress, high blood pressure, and premature aging, among other deleterious impacts. From a psychological standpoint, impatience leads to unnecessary risks and poor decisions. From a social point of view, being impatient is a guaranteed way of losing friends and making ...

If you thought you knew Saint Nicholas, you thought wrong.
The origin of one of history's most iconic figures is not a fairy tale. It is not a story for children, to be told by the fire on a cold night. It is a story of pain and fear, of death and rebirth. But most of all, it is a story from a nightmare.
Nicholas was a farmer before the war, when he lost everything he ever loved. Now, riddled with the emotional consequences of his own actions, and the remorse of a father who failed his child, he exists from drink to drink, making his way through life in a small village in Prussia. Every day, he regrets his life and wishes for a death he cannot accept.
Until death came for him.
Mythical creatures spring forth from legend, and Nicholas is thrust into the middle of a nightmare of death and destruction as he battles the legendary Draugar, and struggles with his most dangerous enemy: himself.

A FRENCH QUARTER MASSACRE, ANOTHER IN MISSISSIPPI, AND A JIGSAW OF A PLOT!
Never have Tony Dunbar's diabolically complex plotting, on-the-nose characters, and hawk-like ability to seize upon and capture everything New Orleans been on better display than in his jaw-dropping new thriller. FLAG BOY, the TENTH entry in his popular Tubby Dubonnet series, is Dunbar's most wickedly clever mystery since his Edgar-nominated CROOKED MAN, as dark and stormy a tale as ever slithered its noirish way out of New Orleans.
The set-up alone's enough to make you believe in the butterfly effect. Two acrobats burglarize a house; a sultan moves into a French Quarter mansion; a Mardi Gras Indian, in the wrong place at the wrong time, is wrongfully arrested; and our hero, lawyer and sometime-detective Tubby Dubonnet, comes upon a double murder while paying a social call in the wilds of Mississippi. Thus is the stage set. You know instantly-- because this is a Tubby Dubonnet mystery-- that these disparate ...
This book illustrates why most people lose in the stock market, even when tremendous opportunities are presented to them. A spectacular move of over 7000% in 52 weeks was offered to the public and still the vast majority of the public either lost money or did not make any significant gains on the stock. Only a handful of the insiders made money on the move. Written as a fiction surrounding such a stock, the book offers simple lessons to the lay person about how to improve one's odds for success in the stock market, and it does so with an entertaining and enlightening storyline. The story offers an insight into the rewarding way Wall Street works for the insiders and how it shows a different face to the outsiders.

Master the Art of Mental Math - Advanced Calculation and Memorization All in your Head
Mathematics is not a new subject to us because almost everyone knows how to count either with fingers or pen and paper in whichever language we are comfortable with. Math is not only the game of numbers but also the language of nature. As a matter of fact, it has been established through research that the more we understand our universe, the more we discover interesting mathematical connections. For instance, flowers have spirals that are carefully lines up in a special sequence of numbers commonly referred to as Fibonacci numbers. This sequence can be studied, understood and generated. A study on seashells also revealed that they form perfect mathematical curves known as logarithmic spirals that originate from a chemical balance. Apart from the flowers and seashells, star clusters also form a mathematical arrangement in the way they tag on one another. This has been ...
