Renowned negotiation expert and coauthor of the classic GETTING TO YES argues that the greatest obstacle to successful negotiations and satisfying relationships is not the other side, but our natural tendency to react in ways that do not serve our true interests-and shows how to reach agreement with ourselves first to succeed at the negotiation table and beyond. GETTING TO YES WITH YOURSELF is the missing first half of GETTING TO YES.

To some left with nothing, winning becomes everything In a post-virus world, a daring sport is taking the US by storm. It´s frenetic, violent and involves teams attacking one another with swords and hammers. The aim: to obtain your opponent´s head and carry it through the goalposts. Impossible? Not if the players have Haden´s Syndrome. Unable to move, Haden´s sufferers use robot bodies, which they operate mentally. So in this sport anything goes, no one gets hurt - and crowds and competitors love it. Until a star athlete drops dead on the playing field. But is it an accident? FBI agents Chris Shane and Leslie Vann are determined to find out. In this game, fortunes can be made - or lost. And both players and owners will do whatever it takes to win, on and off the field. John Scalzi returns with Head On, a chilling near-future SF with the thrills of a gritty cop procedural. Head On brings Scalzi´s trademark snappy dialogue and technological speculation to the future world of sports.
Hannibal was a Punic Carthaginian military commander, generally considered one of the greatest military commanders in history. His father, Hamilcar Barca, was the leading Carthaginian commander during the First Punic War, his younger brothers were Mago and Hasdrubal, and he was brother-in-law to Hasdrubal the Fair. Hannibal lived during a period of great tension in the Mediterranean, when the Roman Republic established its supremacy over other great powers such as Carthage, the Hellenistic kingdoms of Macedon, Syracuse, and the Seleucid empire. One of his most famous achievements was at the outbreak of the Second Punic War, when he marched an army, which included war elephants, from Iberia over the Pyrenees and the Alps into northern Italy. In his first few years in Italy, he won three dramatic victories?Trebia, Trasimene, and Cannae, in which he distinguished himself for his ability to determine his and his opponent´s strengths and weaknesses, and to play the battle to his strengths and the enemy´s weaknesses?and won over many allies of Rome. Hannibal occupied much of Italy for 15 years, but a Roman counter-invasion of North Africa forced him to return to Carthage, where he was decisively defeated by Scipio Africanus at the Battle of Zama. Scipio had studied Hannibal´s tactics and brilliantly devised some of his own, and finally defeated Rome´s nemesis at Zama, having previously driven Hasdrubal, Hannibal´s brother, out of the Iberian Peninsula. Often regarded as one of the greatest military strategists in history, Hannibal would later be considered one of the greatest generals of antiquity, together with Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Scipio, and Pyrrhus of Epirus. Plutarch states that, when questioned by Scipio as to who was the greatest general, Hannibal is said to have replied either Alexander or Pyrrhus, then himself, or, according to another version of the event, Pyrrhus, Scipio, then himself. Military historian Theodore Ayrault Dodge once famously called Hannibal the ´´father of strategy´´, because his greatest enemy, Rome, came to adopt elements of his military tactics in its own strategic arsenal. This praise has earned him a strong reputation in the modern world, and he was regarded as a great strategist by men like Napoleon Bonaparte.

´´From the editor-at-large of Breitbart.com, a timely and compelling look at how liberals use bullying toward their opponents on today´s top political issues. Bullying is an urgent topic on many minds and lips today. After the ´´It Gets Better´´ program was sanctioned by Obama himself, the left turned bullying into one of its most beloved pet issues. But what they seem to have missed is that their own modus operandi relies on exactly that: bullying. Bullying is the liberals´ go-to tactic. They decry their opponents through fear, threat of force, and rhetorical intimidation on every major issue facing America. Anti-American bullies portray our country as a force for evil in the world, a great maw of global nastiness, chewing up portions of our population onbehalf of their corporate overlords. Race bullies like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson incite riots ending in murder, trump up charges against innocent district attorneys, or threaten violence to small towns in Florida, while calling anyone who disagrees with them racists. And there´s much, much more. These are the most despicable people in America. And what makes them even more vile is that as they bully their opponents, they claim to be victims. They call their opponents uncivil while engaging in some ofthe most vulgar tactics against anyone they disagree with. But no more. Political prodigy and editor-in-chief of Breitbart.com Ben Shapiro takes on these bullies and provides a compelling tour of the left´s bullying tendencies on all of today´s top political issues´´--
