William Ury, co-author of the classic best seller on negotiation Getting to Yes, has taught tens of thousands of people from all walks of life - managers, salespeople, students, parents, lawyers, and diplomats - how to become better negotiators. Over the years, Ury has discovered that the greatest obstacle to successful agreements and satisfying relationships is not the other side, as difficult as they can be. The biggest obstacle is actually ourselves - our natural tendency to react in ways that do not serve our true interests. But this obstacle can also become our biggest opportunity, Ury argues. If we learn to understand and influence ourselves first, we lay the groundwork for understanding and influencing others. In this indispensable prequel to Getting to Yes, Ury draws deeply on his personal and professional experience negotiating conflicts around the world to present a practical method to help you get to yes with yourself first, dramatically improving your ability to get to yes with others. Extraordinarily useful and elegantly simple, Getting to Yes with Yourself is an essential guide to achieving the inner satisfaction that will, in turn, make your life better, your relationships healthier, your family happier, your work more productive, and the world around you more peaceful. 1.

Weight is important when engaged in a fight, and more often than not weight works to your advantage. Luckily there are many ways in which you can take advantage of the laws of physics to make yourself appear heavier than you are; for example, by pushing your weight into an opponent, spreading out on top of him, or pinning him to the floor through the use of a sharp weapon. How you handle your weight may be especially prevalent in ground battle, where you remain in close contact with your opponent. Whether in the training hall or on the street, you defeat your adversary by waging a decisive battle. Strike with force and determination, press the attack, preselect vulnerable targets, use sound scientific principles, and endure until the end. There is no excuse for lacking strength, but if you lack size you can still be powerful and win through the use of sound body mechanics. The use of bodyweight is taught in most martial arts classes, but applying these concepts consistently and with determination requires effort in training. Formidable Fighter: The Complete Series, a compilation of all 14 books in this series, is available in both electronic and print format.

Everything you´ve been taught about the World War II ´´internment camps´´ in America is wrong: They were not created primarily because of racism or wartime hysteria They did not target only those of Japanese descent They were not Nazi-style death camps In her latest investigative tour-de-force, New York Times best-selling author Michelle Malkin sets the historical record straight - and debunks radical ethnic alarmists who distort history to undermine common-sense, national security profiling. The need for this myth-shattering book is vital. President Bush´s opponents have attacked every homeland defense policy as tantamount to the ´´racist´´ and ´´unjustified´´ World War II internment. Bush´s own transportation secretary, Norm Mineta, continues to milk his childhood experience at a relocation camp as an excuse to ban profiling at airports. 1. Language: English.

This book reveals the primary causes of Habsburg defeat both in the Austro-Prussian War and the First World War. The choice of offensive strategy and tactics against an enemy possessing superior weaponry in the Austro-Prussian War, and opponents with superior numbers and weapons in the Great War, resulted in catastrophe. The inferiority of the Habsburg forces in both conflicts stemmed from imprudent spending decisions during peacetime, rather than conservatism or parliamentary stinginess. The desire to restore the sunken prestige of Austria-Hungary and prove Habsburgs great power status drove the military to waste money on an expensive fleet, and choose offensive tactics to win great victories. This study shows the civil-military interaction in regard to funding and procurement decisions as well as the deep intellectual debates within the army, which refute the idea that the Habsburg military remained opposed to technology or progress John A. Dredger is Vice-Principal at Assumption Academy in Walton, USA. Having studied at Kansas State University, he has taught History for twenty-five years.

Written by Gerald Nierenberg, the world´s foremost authority on the subject, and recognized as the Father of Contemporary Negotiation, The New Art of Negotiating is an updated, expanded version of the million-copy bestseller, The Art of Negotiating, which was the first on the subject of negotiating and introduced us all to the art of effective negotiation.

Based on the epic television series A.D. Ministers and Martyrs, this audiobook offers an unflinching look at the lives and sacrifices of those first Christians who were given the task of spreading the Gospel to the ends of the Earth. Relying on the latest archaeological findings and scientific research, acclaimed author Mike Aquilina takes you on a journey through the Apostolic Age, bringing to life the dusty streets and oriental smells that would have accompanied Mary and the apostles as they built a Church that lasts even to our day. You´ll also come to know the beliefs of the early Christians, what they taught about the Eucharist and the divinity of Christ, how their church services resemble today´s Mass, and how Rome became the spiritual center for Christianity. Read these pagesand you´ll come to see that despite the best efforts of their enemies, the blood of the apostles did not snuff out the faith but brought forth great saints whose holy deeds and brave examples gave the besieged Church a vigor that lasts even to today. Ministers and Martyrs will give your confidence that the Church is indeed Christ acting in the world and that no matter how ruthless her opponents, she will endure to the end of time. 1.
