    Descirption: The ultimate guide on leadership from the #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Extreme Ownership.

    In the military, a field manual provides instructions in simple, clear, step-by-step language to help soldiers complete their mission. In the civilian sector, books offer information on everything from fixing a leaky faucet to developing an effective workout program to cooking a good steak.
    But what if you are promoted into a new position leading your former peers? What if you don't get selected for the leadership position you wanted? How do you overcome imposter syndrome, when you aren't sure you should be leading? As a leader, how do you judiciously dole out punishment? What about reward? How do you build trust with your both your superiors and your subordinates? How do you deliver truthful criticism up and down the chain of command in a tactful and positive way?
    These are all questions about leadership-the most...

    Sofia, Bulgaria, a landlocked city in southern Europe, stirs with hope and impending upheaval. Soviet buildings crumble, wind scatters sand from the far south, and political protesters flood the streets with song.
    In this atmosphere of disquiet, an American teacher navigates a life transformed by the discovery and loss of love.

He paints a bucolic yet sometimes menacing portrait, showing movingly how danger and deception can threaten the lives of the weakest through the story of a helpless young animal lost in a world it naively misunderstands.s the novel opens, a farmer in Tamil Nadu is watching the sun set over his village one quiet evening when a mysterious stranger, a giant man who seems more than human, appears on the horizon. He offers the farmer a black goat kid who is the runt of the litter, surely too frail to survive.

    Size : 64.58 MB |




    Descirption: Christopher Knowlton, author of Cattle Kingdom and former Fortune writer, takes an in-depth look at the spectacular Florida land boom of the 1920s and sho how it led directly to the Great Depression.
    The 1920s in Florida was a time of incredible excess, immense wealth, and precipitous collapse. It was the largest human migration in American history, far exceeding the settlement of the West. It spawned the suburbs as we know them and the first large-scale assault on the environment in the name of "progress." Thousands flocked to the grand hotels and new cities rose rapidly from the teeming wetlands. Nowhere was the glitz and excess of the Roaring Twenties more blatant than in Florida. It was Vegas before there was Vegas; gambling was legal and so was drinking (prohibition was not enforced). Tycoons and celebrities flocked to this new frontier. Yet, the import and deep impact of this historical moment has never been explored thoroughly until now.

    Walking One Step at a Time by Erling Kagge
    Type : epub |
    Size : 14.07 MB |
    English |



    Descirption: A lyrical account of an activity that is essential for our sanity, equilibrium, and well-being from the author of Silence, which The Wall Street Journal called "something to be handled and savored."
    Placing one foot in front of the other, the journey of discovery, and the joy of exploration, are intrinsic to our nature. Our ancestors travelled long distance on foot, gained new experiences, and learned from them, but as universal as walking is, each of us will experience it differently. For Kagge, walking is the gateway to the questions that fascinate him-"Why do I walk?", "Where do I walk from?", and "What is my destination?"-questions which he invites each of us to investigate. Language reflects the idea that life is one single walk, the word "journey" comes from the distance we travel in the course of a day. Walking for Kagge is the natural accompaniment to science-the occasion for the unspoken dialogue...

    Descirption: A Banksy-style protest against cameras in classrooms brings a group of middle-grade students together. For fans of Rebecca Stead, Susin Nielsen and Gordon Korman.
    Dominica's private school is covered in cameras, and someone is hacking into them and posting embarrassing moments for the whole school to see. Like Ana picking her nose. When Dominica quickly changes her shirt from inside out in what she thinks is the privacy of a quiet corner in the library, she's shocked - and embarrassed - to discover a video has captured this and is currently circulating amongst her schoolmates. So mortifying, especially since over the past three years, they've had a half-dozen school talks about social media safety.
    Who has access to the school security cameras and why are they doing this? Dominica and her best friends, Holden and Saanvi, are determined to find out, and in the process start an art-based student campaign against cameras in the classroom.

    Descirption: <a href="https://.goodreads.com/book/show/13332446-siege-at-jadotville"><span style="color: #6cb4ee">Siege at Jadotville</a>
    The Irish soldier has never been a stranger to fighting the enemy with the odds stacked against him. The notion of charging into adversity has been a cherished part of Ireland's military history.

    In September 1961 another chapter should have been written into the annals, but it is a tale that lay shrouded in dust for years.

    The men of A Company, 35th Irish Infantry Battalion, arrived in the Congo as a UN contingent to help keep the peace. For many it would be their first trip outside their native shores. Some of the troops were teenage boys, their army-issue hobnailed boots still unbroken. They had never heard a shot fired in anger. Others were experienced professional soldiers, but were still not prepared for the action that was to take place.

    Led by Commandant Pat Quinlan, A Company found themselves tasked with protecting the European population at Jadotville, a small mining town in the southern Congolese province of Katanga. It fell to A Company to try and protect people who later turned on them. On 13 September 1961 the bright morning air of Jadotville was shattered by the sound of automatic gunfire.

    The men of A Company found their morning Mass parade interrupted, and within minutes went from holding rosaries to rifles as they entered the world of combat. This was to be no Srebrenica; though cut off and surrounded, the men of Jadotville held their ground and fought .

    This is their story.
