ggf. zzgl. Versand

Bigby Wolf has been around for a good long while, and he's investigated pretty much every crime imaginable-but even an immortal Fable like him can still stumble across a once-in-a-lifetime case. As the sheriff of the magical New York City neighborhood known as Fabletown, Bigby is hot on the trail of the killer who beheaded a princess and then unleashed a horde of gangsters and monsters to cover his tracks. But even as Bigby reels from attempts on his life and watches his trail of suspects go cold, an old evil reappears to wreak havoc once more. Is the urban legend known as Bloody Mary to blame? Or is she just one more tortured pawn in an even bigger game, with an even more crooked opponent waiting to make his move? The acclaimed adaptation of the hit mystery from Telltale Games-inspired by Bill Willingham's best-selling Vertigo series FABLES-concludes in this second volume of FABLES: THE WOLF AMONG US, written by Matthew Sturges and Dave Justus and featuring a powerful pack of artists, including Travis Moore, Shawn McManus, Eric Nguyen and Steve Sadowski.

Here with wit and wisdom, Herb Cohen reveals his own conceptual canopy - a step-by-step approach for establishing and maintaining mutually satisfying long-term relationships. Emphasizing the importance of style (manner and means) over substance (terms and conditions), and by use of recognizable anecdotes and examples, you will learn how to transform an opponent into a genuine partner. Cohen covers the "nuts and bolts" of building optimal relationships: opening with commonality, saving zero-sum issues for last, obtaining reciprocity, gaining investment, and the necessary closing criteria. For more than three decades, Cohen has been a practicing negotiator, intimately involved with several highly publicized negotiating dramas, including the Iranian hostage crisis, the skyjacking of TWA Flight 847, and the Achille Lauro terrorist incident. He has served as adviser to two U.S. Presidents and acted as consultant to hundreds of corporations, entrepreneurs and government agencies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Herb Cohen.

The Essence of Budo: A Practitioner's Guide to ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The study of budo, or the Japanese martial arts for self-cultivation, is a lifelong path toward perfection of character. Here, Dave Lowry, a sword master who has practiced and taught budo for over 40 years, addresses the myriad issues, vagaries, and inconsistencies that arise for students of karate-do, judo, kendo, kenjutsu, aikido, and iaido as their training develops. He examines such questions as: What is the relationship between the student and teacher, and what should one expect from the other? What does rank really mean? How do you correctly and sensitively practice with someone less experienced than you? What does practice look like as one ages? Why do budo arts put such an emphasis on etiquette? And many others Lowry also gives practical advice for beginning and advanced students on improving structural integrity in posture and movement, focusing under stress, stances and preparatory actions before engaging with an opponent, and recognizing a good teacher from a bad one. 1.

American Legends: The Life of Stephen Douglas ,...

Explains the central issues of the 1850s, including the Missouri Compromise, the Kansas-Nebraska Act, popular sovereignty and the Dred Scott Decision. "Now, I hold that Illinois had a right to abolish and prohibit slavery as she did, and I hold that Kentucky has the same right to continue and protect slavery that Illinois had to abolish. I hold that New York had as much right to abolish slavery as Virginia has to continue it, and that each and every State of this Union is a sovereign power, with the right to do as it pleases upon this question of slavery, and upon all its domestic institutions. ...And why can we not adhere to the great principle of self-government, upon which our institutions were originally based." - Stephen Douglas A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history's most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors' American Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of America's most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. The most famous debates in American history were held over 150 years ago, and today they are remembered and celebrated, mostly because they included future President Abraham Lincoln, one of the nation's most revered men. But in the Fall of 1858, Lincoln was just a one-term Congressman who had to all but beg his US Senate opponent to debate him. That's because his opponent, incumbent US Senator Stephen Douglas, was one of the most famous national politicians of the era. Though Douglas is remembered today almost entirely for his association with Lincoln, in 1858 he was "The Little Giant" of American politics and a leader of the Democratic Party. 1. Language: English.

Perfect for ages 7-10In Charles River Editors’ History for Kids series, your children can learn about history’s most important people and events in an easy, entertaining, and educational way. The concise but comprehensive book will keep your kid’s attention all the way to the end. The most famous debates in American history were held over 150 years ago, and today they are remembered and celebrated mostly because they included future president Abraham Lincoln, one of the nation’s most revered men. But in the fall of 1858, Lincoln was just a one-term congressman who had to all but beg his US Senate opponent to debate him. That’s because his opponent, incumbent US senator Stephen Douglas, was one of the most famous national politicians of the era. Though Douglas is remembered today almost entirely for his association to Lincoln, in 1858 he was “The Little Giant” of American politics and a leader of the Democratic Party. In particular, it was Douglas who had championed the idea of “popular sovereignty”, advocating that the settlers of federal territory should vote on whether their state would become a free state or a slave state. When Congress created the territories of Kansas and Nebraska in 1854, it followed this model, and Douglas believed it was a moderate position that would hold the Union together. But many in the North considered popular sovereignty a deliberate attempt to circumvent the Missouri Compromise, which was supposed to have banned slavery in any state above the parallel 36°30′ north. As a result, the Lincoln-Douglas debates would be almost entirely about issues pertaining to slavery.Douglas would go on to win reelection in 1858, but Lincoln would win the war, literally and figuratively. In the presidential election of 1860, Lincoln would win the Republican nomination and the presidency. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tracey Norman.

Tournament poker is a tough game to play but the rewards for success can be huge. Even regular online tournaments offer substantial prizes running to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Jonathan Little, a highly successful poker professional who has won over $4 million in tournament play in just four years, explains exactly how to succeed in this highly competitive field. Playing technically sound poker is crucial but this is far from the only skill necessary. Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker, Volume 1 dealt with the fundamentals of play. Volume 2 builds on this base and examines the highly complex issue of how to handle the different stages of a tournament. At times the best strategy is to play loose, create problems for your opponent and thus keep accumulating chips. At other times an ultra-tight strategy will be the most profitable. Understanding when to "change gears" is a highly developed skill that requires a great deal of study and experience. Jonathan Little has that experience. Managing life as a professional poker player throws up a number of issues in itself and Jonathan calls upon his many years as a pro to address these. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Little.

The Man From Clear Lake: Earth Day Founder Sena...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

On Earth Day 1970 20 million Americans displayed their commitment to a clean environment. It was called the largest demonstration in human history, and it permanently changed the nation's political agenda. By Earth Day 2000 participation had exploded to 500 million people in 167 countries. The seemingly simple idea—a day set aside to focus on protecting our natural environment—was the brainchild of U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin. It accomplished, far beyond his expectations, his lifelong goal of putting the environment onto the nation's and the world's political agendas. A remarkable man, Nelson ranks as one of history's leading environmentalists. He also played a major role as an early, outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War, and as a senate insider was a key player in civil rights, poverty, civil liberties and consumer protection issues. The life of Nelson, a small town boy who learned his values and progressive political principles at an early age, is woven through the political history of the twentieth century. Nelson's story intersects at times with Fighting Bob La Follette, Joe McCarthy, and Bill Proxmire in Wisconsin, and with George McGovern, Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, Russell Long, Walter Mondale, John F. Kennedy, and others on the national scene. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Henry. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/crvn/000017/bk_crvn_000017_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Precious Ramotswe dips her toe into the world of politics in the newest addition to the beloved and best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series.  When Mma Potokwane suggests to Mma Ramotswe that she run for a seat on the city council, Mma Ramotswe is at first unsure. But when she learns about the proposed construction of the flashy Big Fun Hotel next to a graveyard, she allows herself to be persuaded. Her opponent is none other than Violet Sephotho, who is in the pocket of the hotel developers. Although Violet is intent on using every trick in the book to secure her election, Mma Ramotswe refuses to promise anything beyond what she can deliver - hence her slogan: 'I can't promise anything - but I shall do my best'. To everyone's surprise, she wins. As it turns out, politics does not agree with Mma Ramotswe. Though everyone is supportive, she eventually resigns. She thinks there will be a new election, but she discovers that the rules state that in such an event, the runner-up automatically takes the seat. Violet is triumphant and sure that she will get the Big Fun Hotel planning application through without a hitch. But Mma Makutsi and Mma Potokwane are not about to make it easy for her. Through it all, Mma Ramotswe uses her good humour and generosity of spirit to help the community navigate divisive issues and proves that honesty and compassion will always carry the day. 1.
