The Killing Lessons: Saul Black
The Pursuit of Greatness: Life Lessons from the Story of Saul: Apostle Joseph Sithole
Ein psychopathischer Serienkiller und sein brutaler Helfer machen den Westen der USA unsicher. Scheinbar wahllos ermorden sie Menschen, offenbar um ihren Opfern bestialische KILLING LESSONS zu erteilen. Als sie in den verschneiten Bergen von Colorado erneut zuschlagen, ist dies bereits ihr siebtes Opfer. Ein zehnjähriges Mädchen kann mit knapper Not entkommen und findet Zuflucht bei einem alten Schriftsteller, der sich in eine einsame Hütte im Wald zurückgezogen hat. Beiden ist klar, dass die Täter sie früher oder später aufspüren werden. Detective Valerie Hart vom San Francisco Police Department ist auf den Fall angesetzt. Und sie hat nur eine Chance: Sie muss die Handschrift des Killers lesen lernen ...
Leadership Lessons:Avoiding the Pitfalls of King Saul. US open market-Ausgabe Ralph K Hawkins, Richard Leslie Parrott
´´This novel breaks brilliant. It´s hard to tell what´s the best part of The Killing Lessons: the sweaty-palm plot that races along like a squad car on a high-speed pursuit, the breathtaking depictions of the characters, good and bad, or author Black´s inimitable style. My vote? All three.´´ – Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author of The Skin Collector and Solitude Creek In their isolated country house, a mother and her two children prepare to wait out a blinding snowstorm. Two violent predators walk through the door. Nothing will ever be the same. When the two strangers turn up at Rowena Cooper´s isolated Colorado farmhouse, she knows instantly that it´s the end of everything. For the two haunted and driven men, on the other hand, it´s just another stop on a long and bloody journey. And they still have many miles to go, and victims to sacrifice, before their work is done. For San Francisco homicide detective Valerie Hart, their trail of victims-women abducted, tortured and left with a seemingly random series of objects inside them-has brought her from obsession to the edge of physical and psychological destruction. And she´s losing hope of making a breakthrough before that happens. But the murders at the Cooper farmhouse didn´t quite go according to plan. There was a survivor, Rowena´s ten-year-old daughter Nell, who now holds the key to the killings. Injured, half-frozen, terrified, Nell has only one place to go. And that place could be even more dangerous than what she´s running from. In this extraordinary, pulse-pounding debut, Saul Black takes us deep into the mind of a psychopath, and into the troubled heart of the woman determined to stop him.

Retrospektiven sind eine der tragenden Säulen einer erfolgreichen agilen Transition und eines der besten Werkzeuge, um die notwendigen kulturellen Veränderungen in einer Organisation zu bewerkstelligen. Aber nicht nur im agilen Kontext können Retrospektiven eine wertvolle Hilfe sein. Auch im traditionellen Projektmanagement finden sie ihre Verwendung z.B. in Lessons-Learned-Workshops. Retrospektiven sind immer dann ein sinnvolles Werkzeug, wenn es darum geht, das Vergangene zu reflektieren und darauf basierend mögliche Veränderungen zu erarbeiten. Der Autor behandelt praxisnah und mit vielen Beispielen, wie Retrospektiven vorbereitet und moderiert werden. Er geht dabei auch auf Verteilte Retrospektiven, Lo sungsorientierte Retrospektiven und Systemische Retrospektiven ein und beschreibt das ´´Nach der Retro ist vor der Retro´´. Dabei werden auch typische Fallstricke aufgezeigt.
The bestselling, prize-winning author explores the impact of the Second World War - for nations, cities and families around the world. How does the experience and memory of the Second World War - one of the most catastrophic events in human history - affect our lives today? The years after 1945 were a time of both terror and wonder, whose impact still dominates our lives. Out of the ashes of war came the superpowers and nations of the modern world. From the new technologies delivered by scientists came the possibility of nuclear war. Politicians fantasized about overhauled societies, with some arguing for global government, others for independence, leading to the arguments about nationalism, immigration and globalisation that exist today. As well as analyzing the major changes and the myths that emerged, The Fear and the Freedom uses individual stories to examine the philosophical and psychological impact of the war, by showing how leaders and ordinary people coped with the post-war world and turned one of the greatest traumas in history into an opportunity for change. This is the definitive exploration of the aftermath of WWII - and the impact it still has. ´Richly-documented and wide-ranging . . . I wish schools would use books like this to introduce pupils to the complexity of the problems that face them´ - Theodore Zeldin, author of ´The Hidden Pleasures of Life´ and ´An Intimate History Of Humanity´ ´Provocative, insightful and at times profoundly moving . . . I hope everyone - and our politicians especially - will read it and learn its vitally important lessons´ - James Holland ´Insightful and panoramic . . . no myth goes unchallenged. Thoroughly compelling´ - Sunday Times ´A masterpiece of historical inquiry: painstakingly researched, cleverly constructed and elegantly written. In surveying such a diverse panorama, Lowe displays a sensitivity to the human condition - how we got to where we are now - that is as unusual as it is welcome´ - Saul David, Daily Telegraph ´The Fear and The Freedom is a deft blend of historical research, moving interviews, and challenging psychological insights. Lowe writes with elegance and perception. A truly illuminating read´ - Jonathan Dimbleby ´Keith Lowe has written an eloquent meditation on the aftermath and the long psychological tentacles of the Second World War. Beautifully written and profoundly perceptive, The Fear and the Freedom confirms Lowe as one of our finest historians´ - Antony Beevor
The All Blacks are the world´s most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years. What is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? The All Blacks are the world´s most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years. In other arenas, there have been commanding sides that swept all before them, like the West Indies cricket team of the 1980s with their fearsome battery of fast bowlers, or the Hungarian football team who introduced a sophisticated new passing game and famously thrashed England 7-1 in Budapest in 1954. But what makes the All-Blacks different is their supremacy for decade after decade - their sheer consistency, longevity and sustained dominance. So, what is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? Whatever field we are in, how can we play like All Blacks? In Legacy, best-selling author James Kerr is embedded deep into the heart of the All Blacks´ set-up to reveal 15 powerful and pragmatic lessons in leadership. Revealing proven secrets of sustained success, Legacy is a unique, inspiring handbook for leaders in all fields, and asks: How do you turn vision into action? How do you achieve world-class standards, day after day, week after week, year after year? How do you handle pressure, expectation and setbacks? How do you train to win at the highest level? What is your purpose?What will be your legacy? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Saul Reichlin. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/012849/bk_adbl_012849_sample.mp3.
