When bitterness strikes, intimacy is broken to pieces. When pride surpasses love, sorrow dominates. An unwelcome stranger became a third person, hoping to contribute to a marriage. A voluntary protagonist set herself for a mission to search out a riddle because a familiar being brought ultimate chaos into their midst. A beautiful young lady was imprisoned, tortured, and was destined for a grave due to the license her opponent earned. Fiona studied the effectiveness of the spirit world. Christianity remained an answer to dealing with the unseen force. Pain overflowed through her body and couldn't handle it anymore. From the hand of a cruel man she was delivered. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kirsten Beck. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/143009/bk_acx0_143009_sample.mp3.

The Master of Go
14,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Go is a game of strategy in which two players attempt to surround each other's black or white stones. Simple in its fundamentals, infinitely complex in its execution, Go is an essential expression of the Japanese spirit. And in his fictional chronicle of a match played between a revered and heretofore invincible Master and a younger, more modern challenger, Yasunari Kawabata captured the moment in which the immutable traditions of imperial Japan met the onslaught of the twentieth century. The competition between the Master of Go and his opponent, Otaké, is waged over several months and layered in ceremony. But beneath the game's decorum lie tensions that consume not only the players themselves but their families and retainers-tensions that turn this particular contest into a duel that can only end in death. Luminous in its detail, both suspenseful and serene, The Master of Go is an elegy for an entire society, written with the poetic economy and psychological acumen that brought Kawabata the Nobel Prize for Literature. Translated from the Japanese by Edward G. Seidensticker

Written in 500 BC, The Art of War, by Sun Tzu, is the foremost war strategy manuscript. This book will teach you when to battle, when not to battle, how to battle, how not to battle, and how to win every time you battle. Further key notions presented are: how to maintain an army, how to carry through a battle plan, how to gather intelligence, how to allocate resources, how to maintain high morale, how to weaken the enemy, how to deceive the opponent, and how to survive a battle. Several prevalent strategies shared by Sun Tzu are: · Battle if you are to win. · Let your plans be dark as night, and when you move, fall as a thunderbolt. · Appear weak when strong, and strong when weak. · Successful warriors win first and then war. Defeated soldiers war first and then seek to win. · All conflict is deception. · Move swift as wind and solid as wood. Attack like fire and remain motionless as a mountain. · Those who desire to battle must first consider the cost. The Art of War can be divided into three sections and the first two chapters, plus the last chapter, explore strategies of positional awareness. The second section highlights methods to expand. And the third section explores strategies to respond offensively and defensively. In the end, the strategies of Sun Tzu are basically an offensive-defensive order-maneuver before fighting, commit not until the opponent has revealed his hand, then deceive the enemy by engaging or attracting with one force while striking with another contingent.

“Study strategy over the years and achieve the spirit of the warrior. Today is victory over yourself of yesterday; tomorrow is your victory over lesser men.” (Miyamoto Musashi)Samurai Sasaki Kojiro was growing increasingly impatient as he waited on the beach at Funa Island in Kokura. An undefeated master swordsman, he was tense, and his anger was getting the better of him. He was on the small island for a duel - a clash of steel between two swordsmen where a man’s life could end in seconds. The duel was the ultimate test of the swordsman, and Sasaki, one of the best in Japan, was known as “The Demon of the Western Provinces”. However, the Sasaki on the beach did not resemble the fierce warrior of his reputation as he paced back and forth, frustrated by the tardiness of his opponent: the enigmatic Miyamoto Musashi. Sasaki knew nothing about Musashi except that the mysterious swordsman was undefeated, because aside from that, little was known about Musashi’s style or lineage. Although Musashi did have a reputation for keeping a rather unkempt appearance and an unpredictable personality, the mysterious swordsman also was the subject of conflicting stories about his courage and prowess.Though he was understandably confident, Sasaki did not underestimate his opponent, who finally arrived to the island on a small boat. Sasaki noticed something shocking: Musashi did not bring a sword. Instead Musashi, who appeared as if he had just rolled out of bed, brought a wooden oar carved into a makeshift sword as his dueling weapon. Sasaki was furious, and though he was beyond insulted, he drew his sword and prepared to fight to the death. The duel between the two masters thus began with one of them having no sword at all.Little may have been known about Musashi at the time, but centuries later, he is the most infamous and renowned warrior in Japanese history. As a veteran of the Battle of Sekigahara (1600), Naiwa (1615), and the Shimabara Rebellion i 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Johnston.
