From New York Times best-selling author Nancy Bush comes a tense, intricately plotted novel of suspense, as one woman becomes the focus of a killer's warped game of revenge and murder.

Every meticulously planned move is leading to a devastating checkmate. Because in this game, all the pretty pawns must die. First You Play Andi Wren is fighting to keep her late husband's company safe from vindictive competitors. When she receives an ominous note "little birds must fly" - she turns to PI Luke Denton. Though Luke has personal reasons for wanting to take down Wren Development's opponents, his investigation suggests this is deeper and far more dangerous than a business grudge.

The cage door clangs shut. The lock slides into place. The voice in my head drowns out everything else. What the hell is wrong with me?Follow the journey of Mark Tullius, former cage fighter and boxer turned author and stay-at-home dad as he puts his love of fighting and his sociology degree to use. What began as a personal exploration to unlock his reasons for continuing to train and pursue a fight career evolved into an in-depth sociological study of why competing in mixed martial arts (MMA) appeals to fighters. Why do these men and women subject themselves to the endless hours of grueling training required for the full-contact sport? In MMA a fighter's goal is to punch, kick, and choke an opponent into submission, and if there is blood and injury along the way, so be it. What compels these individuals to develop the necessary strength, endurance, discipline, and skill despite the risks involved?Instead of interviewing a handful of elite fighters, Mark traveled to every corner of the country, looking to train at different gyms and find fighters interested in showing the world who they are and why they fight. He finished the project after visiting 100 gyms and interviewing 340 fighters.Although it wasn't necessary, Tullius trained with the fighters and soon came to realize how valuable that time was, cultivating mental strength by surrounding himself with positive and inspiring individuals. It encouraged him to continue his project when he still had doubts about seeing it to its completion. Finally, Tullius believed that his willingness to get on the mat and demonstrate his trust in the fighters encouraged them to trust him and open up to a stranger about their fears and mistakes, dreams and accomplishments. 1.

For Doug Fiore running for governor was better than death at the mob's hands, if only the sex wouldn't get in the way. Mob head Sal Tarantino doesn't want big-time casino gambling to become legal in Rhode Island. His solution is to have the next governor comfortably in his pocket, ready to veto the legislation. That means calling in the debts owed to the mob by some of Rhode Island's most prominent politicians, to clear the way for Doug Fiore, managing partner of the state's largest law firm and soon-to-be reluctant gubernatorial candidate. Sal's plan seems to be going smoothly until the primary draws closer, when Fiore's opponent, a supporter of state-sponsored gambling and the leader in the polls, is gunned down in a bar along with the establishment's bookie-in-residence. The public presumption, driven by columns in the Providence Herald in which Fiore's ties to the family are laid out, is that the Tarantino family had reasons to want them both dead. Things get even stickier when the winner of the Democratic primary is the husband of one of Fiore's law partners--who happens to also be one of his two mistresses. She learns with horror that her husband has a set of secret recordings taken in a hotel room where Fiore has met with both women. As the race draws to a close, the candidates are in a dead heat. Fiore, who now will stop at nothing to win, devises a scheme with both his mistresses to nail down his victory. The outcome is all in the sex. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Knezevich.

Deep Thinking
10,49 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In May 1997, the world watched as Garry Kasparov, the greatest chess player in the world, was defeated for the first time by the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue. It was a watershed moment in the history of technology: machine intelligence had arrived at the point where it could best human intellect. It wasn't a coincidence that Kasparov became the symbol of man's fight against the machines. Chess has long been the fulcrum in development of machine intelligence; the hoax automaton 'The Turk' in the 18th century and Alan Turing's first chess program in 1952 were two early examples of the quest for machines to think like humans - a talent we measured by their ability to beat their creators at chess. As the pre-eminent chessmaster of the 80s and 90s, it was Kasparov's blessing and his curse to play against each generation's strongest computer champions, contributing to their development and advancing the field. Like all passionate competitors, Kasparov has taken his defeat and learned from it. He has devoted much energy to devising ways in which humans can partner with machines in order to produce results better than either can achieve alone. During the twenty years since playing Deep Blue, he's played both with and against machines, learning a great deal about our vital relationship with our most remarkable creations. Ultimately, he's become convinced that by embracing the competition between human and machine intelligence, we can spend less time worrying about being replaced and more thinking of new challenges to conquer. In this breakthrough book, Kasparov tells his side of the story of Deep Blue for the first time - what it was like to strategize against an implacable, untiring opponent - the mistakes he made and the reasons the odds were against him. But more than that, he tells his story of AI more generally, and how he's evolved to embrace it, taking part in an urgent debate with philosophers worried about human values, programmers creating self-learning neural networks, and engineers of cutting edge robotics. He surveys the serious questions facing a world that is becoming increasingly reliant on AI, creating an essential guide for the business readers and educators he speaks to by the thousands every year.

No Limits Hold Em: Learn Game Theory Optimal! A...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As a game, Texas Hold'em has been around for over 100 years and its popularity is still growing every day. Along with that growth comes new theories and practices that the earliest players, even those who competed at a professional level, could never have envisioned. The most important of these is the concept of Game Theory Optimal (GTO) and if you are interested in all its ins and outs then this is the book you have been waiting for. In poker, the term Game Theory Optimal (GTO) gets thrown around a good deal these days, often in regard to a variety of different concepts. It can be used in reference to opponent modeling as well as thinking about poker situations in terms of probabilities, ranges, and results. A GTO solution to a specific game has precise mathematical definitions which explains why it has become somewhat of the dominant framework when it comes to finding an ideal poker strategy. This book covers the ins and outs of doing so through GTO directly as well as with the help of ancillary concepts like optimal ranges and minimum defense frequencies. Many newer Hold'em players think that the pros are simply luckier than they are when it comes to drawing hands that are the nuts and making the right bets or folds at the critical moment. This is a fallacy, however, and one that this book seeks to rectify. Anyone can learn to make the right plays at the right time as long as they understand the reasons that make certain actions more profitable in given situations than others. This book lays the math behind these moves bare so that instead of relying on luck or intuition every player can move forward confident that their plays are as solid as those of the pros, even if their skills aren't yet quite on the same level. The sheer number of games of Texas Hold'em being played online and in person around the world means that someone is always on the verge of a major payday. Why can't it be you? Do yourself a favor and take control of your financial 1. Language: English. Narrator: Keith McCarthy. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/097694/bk_acx0_097694_sample.mp3.

2018 Audie Award Finalist for Autobiography/Memoir and Excellence in Marketing"In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I've often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I'm letting my guard down." (Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened) For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet. In this audiobook she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells listeners what it took to get back on her feet - the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics. She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future. The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath - both a deeply intimate accoun 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hillary Rodham Clinton.
