Blue Knight´s confidence was building. He proved himself against major adversaries The Artiste and Ivan in Chicago and Kadar in New York City. There were some bumps along the way but they added to what the new superhero needed to know. Interference with activities of the petty crime elements was easy. However, there was an additional lesson, one not anticipated. Further, the related experience took place at a most unexpected time and location ... during a vacation in paradise ... Hawaii! Roger/Blue knight had no one to blame but himself for what happened. He caused the incident. The source of his vulnerability was his lack of realization that the very powers that rendered Blue Knight a superhero could trigger dangerous unforeseen situations. It was an important and necessary experience, but it greatly altered his time on the Big Island. Most important was how the matter was handled and in the end, its resolution. Roger/Blue Knight never turned away from a challenge and he behaved no differently during his sojourn to an island known for its tropical splendor and ... LAVA! 1. Language: English.

A must-read for every dog lover - a short, tender, and uplifting tale of a cancer survivor and the life lessons shared with him by his beloved family dog. Our dogs come into our lives as ´´just the family pet,” but before we know it they become drinking buddies and fuzzy shrinks, playmates and Cheerios-munching vacuum cleaners, alarm clocks and sleeping partners. And, in their mysterious and muttish ways, our dogs become our teachers. When Dana Jennings and his son were both seriously ill - Dana with prostate cancer and his son with liver failure - their 12-year-old miniature poodle, Bijou, became even more than a pet and teacher. She became a healing presence in their lives. After all, when you’re recovering from radical surgery and your life is uncertain, there’s no better medicine than a 23-pound pooch who lives by the motto that it’s always best to play, even when you’re old and creaky, even when you’re sick and frightened. In telling Bijou’s tale in all of its funny, touching, and neurotic glory, Jennings is telling the story of every dog that has ever blessed our lives. The perfect gift for animal lovers, What a Difference a Dog Makes is a narrative ode to our canine guardian angels. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dana Jennings.

Can you remember that one time you got recognized or someone thanked you for your contribution to their life? You were a rock star, even for just one second. This book isn´t about a charmed path to success or some untouchable fairy tale that nobody can relate to - this is about going from rock bottom to rock star, something that everybody can relate to. In his first book, Blair shared the brutally honest story of how he went from an at-risk youth sleeping on a mattress on the floor of a shack to a self-made multimillionaire by his early 20s. As his story became a national sensation, fans started asking him how they, too, could become entrepreneurs, take their careers to the next level, and achieve financial freedom. Rock Bottom to Rock Star answers those questions. Blair has battled extreme obstacles: life as a former gang member, balancing a demanding career with single parenthood, building and selling multiple companies, and making and losing tens of millions of dollars (sometimes all in one day). He wants to help others avoid the mistakes he made in the school of hard knocks, so he has compiled his unique advice for going from rock bottom to rock star in whatever field you choose to pursue. Much of his advice is counterintuitive and definitely not what you would learn in business school. Here´s one example: ´´Don´t believe your own hype. The moment you start celebrating, you´ve left the stage. It wasn´t celebration that made you a rock star. It was hard work.´´ If you´re serious about making the most of your life and you´re ready to become the ´´rock star next door´´ instead of just looking up to them, this may be the most rewarding book you´ll ever hear. 1.
