52 Curiosities About the Median Ages

by Editora Mundo dos Curiosos

This e-book tells in a funny way how it was the craziest time in history, the dark age ou middle age.

The middle age is known for many people as dark age. This nickname was no coincidence, cause this period was more important for the torture, based on religion, disgusting garments, which facilitated the contamination of the black plague, among other diseases.

Strange customs went to bathe only once a year, and to praise the office who cleansed “the filth” of the king.

If we visited this time, we would find total chaos, because it was common to have waste, literally, flying out of the window, people with thick layers of dirt on the body, among other things that you will find in this e-book.

by John Winters

Get the Secret Special Forces Strategies For Success In Life

Maybe you want to excel in your career, maybe you are trying to improve your personal business, or maybe you have been trying to gain confidence and boost your self-esteem. Whatever your personal goals may be, this Book can help you learn what it takes to achieve success by displaying numerous traits and characteristics that are utilized daily by the US Army’s Special Forces operators. The Green Berets take on near-impossible missions around the world every day and succeed, and this Book aims to give you a look into the qualities that contribute to their success (so that you may use them to achieve success in your own life and business).

You do not have to be a Green Beret to possess these vital personality traits and characteristics, just like you do not have to undergo the intense training that they do to learn something from those lessons and utilize it for your own success. A great many of the characteristics, lessons, and personal traits that so many of the Green Berets rely on both in training and missions can also be utilized by the average civilian to successfully achieve goals set in both life or business. Several former Green Berets have been interviewed to determine which characteristics are essential to success in personal life and business after returning to civilian life, and this EBook has summarized those interviews and made the list of lessons available to you.
