The French Revolution and Napoleon

by Charles Downer Hazen

Any one who seeks to understand the stirring period in which we are now living becomes quickly aware that he must first know the history of the French Revolution, a movement that inaugurated a new era, not only for France but for the world. The years from 1789 to 1815, the years of the Revolution and of Napoleon, effected one of the greatest and most difficult transitions of which history bears record, and to gain any proper sense of its significance one must have some glimpse of the background, some conception of what Europe was like in 1789. That background can only be sketched here in a few broad strokes, far from adequate to a satisfactory appreciation, but at least indicating the point of departure.

What was Europe in 1789? One thing, at least, it was not: it was not a unity. There were states of every size and shape and with every form of government. The States of the Church were theocratic; capricious and cruel despotism…



The Art of Getting to YES: How Using Questions Correctly Inspires Action, Agreement, and Connection with Anyone

by Lynn Baber

Do you consciously frame questions so the easiest answer is “Yes”?

“We need to talk, can you meet me at noon?”

Fear strikes the heart of most folks when they hear, “We need to talk…” from their boss or spouse. Heart rates soar, blood pressure rises, and concentration on anything else is pretty much toast. Unless the specific intent was to cause panic, one bit of questionable communication can ruin your day.

Effective communication is hard. Concise effective communication is an art. For those who don’t have the gift, questions can even the playing field. That’s how questions became the foundation of the author’s career and inspired this short-read book.

People who ask brilliant questions are often more successful than people who give brilliant answers. It’s like the old story about the difference between giving someone a fish or teaching them how to fish. One answer won’t make your career, but skillfully asking the right questions might.

Ë?Ë?Ë? Personal and professional relationships are fed by trust. Properly using questions inspires trust.

Most people look for a yes – action, obedience, or agreement – from customers, colleagues, families, and even horses. This short book addresses the reasons why you don’t get the response you want and the unintended consequences of asking the wrong question.

Easy-to-understand and packed with illustrations, “The Art of YES” shares the 4 Types of Questions and teaches you to wield them effectively and responsibly. Has a question ever made you feel uncomfortable? If that wasn’t the intent, what went wrong?

Written by Lynn Baber, best-selling author, World and National Champion horse trainer and breeder, and promoter of the concept of Message over Market. A serial entrepreneur, Lynn credits her success in large part to the savvy use of questions.

Stoicism: An Ex-SPYâ??s Guide to the Stoic Way of Life – Master the Ancient Philosophies of Productivity & Peace of Mind (Spy Self-Help Book 9)

by James Daugherty

Imagine how different your life would be if you knew how to develop the resilience to deal with tough times, whilst effortlessly getting on the path to peace of mind.

Stoicism is a timeless ancient philosophy which can teach you just that. Unlike many religious and new age thinking methods, Stoic teachings provide a clear road map on exactly “How” to think, not simply “What” to think. Thus giving its practitioners a way to better deal with the misfortunes and hardships they face.

James Daugherty is an intelligence expert & former CIA Spy who specializes in all forms of human behavior. But there’s one trait which is critical to a productive life, obtaining and retaining a pragmatic and stable mindset. A spy would be worthless without it.

Daugherty is a huge proponent of the Stoic philosophies, as a result of being exposed to highly stressful and testing situations over the years. A Stoic mindset is not a luxury for a field agent, but a necessity.

In this insightful and functional book, Daugherty gives readers a firsthand look into:

  • What Stoicism is, and where this wisdom came from
  • The trials and tribulations of Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus & Seneca
  • Cultivating Virtues, human emotion and connection to mankind
  • Dealing with modern day demands using “The Art of Acquiescence”
  • Seneca’s rules to eradicate stress – lessons from the Greeks
  • Practical tips on problem solving, perseverance & pragmatism
  • Daily Stoic Meditations and Affirmations

â?¦ and much more.



How to Lose Weight for Good: Stop Guessing, Start Losing: A step-by-step guide to predictable, consistent and maintainable weight loss

by Laine Norton

As a trainer that has lost weight in the past, I not only have the knowledge, but can understand and relate to your struggles. I have probably been through and still do encounter the same problems that you are having right now. The step by step method outlined in this book is the best and easiest way that I have found to burn body fat and keep it off for both myself and my clients.

There are usually 2 types of fitness professionals or personal trainers. Type 1 is the person that has had some weight loss battles of their own, came through them and as a result sees an opportunity to relate to and help others who are also having those struggles.

Type 2 is the person that seems to have been born with 6-pack abs and a dumbbell in their hand. This person naturally becomes a fitness professional through their love of exercise and health. 

I am type 1. I know the struggles and have tried all of the same diet fads and gimmicks that you probably have. I still struggle somewhat today, I like to eat a lot of food, I am an emotional eater sometimes as well.

This book is a guide on how to use the nutrition tracking method. It is the method that finally allowed me to lose the weight I wanted to lose and keep it off. I have also used this method with my personal training clients and have had some great results.

It’s basically the book I wish I could have read on day 1 of my weight loss journey.
