    Effective Speaking and Audition -with Three Brainwave Music Recordings -Alpha, Theta, Delta -for Three Different Sessions There are many occasions at which people will be required to speak in public. Most people in fact will need to make a speech, presentation or toast at some point in their lives. Overcoming the fear of standing in front of other people can be accomplished through hypnosis. Hypnosis helps to overcome the fear of public speaking by helping you first to relax.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

    For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

    it starts off with how to not care about stuff. Then, he Rambles into some stuff I don't even think it has to do with how to let go. And it ends well, i won't spoil it. It's okay not what I was expecting more not a depressing ending..

    "My name is Flora Jessop. I've been called apostate, vigilante, and crazy bitch, and maybe I am. But some people call me a hero, and I'd like to think they're right too. If I am a hero, maybe it's because every time I can play a part in saving a child or a woman from a life of servitude and degradation, I'm saving a little piece of me, too. was one of twenty-eight children born to my dad and his three wives."

    The narrator is great. Flora's story is gripping but not for the faint of heart. It makes you want to stand up & fight for the cause.

    The story of the young sociologist who studied a Chicago crack-dealing gang from the inside captured the world's attention when it was first described in Freakonomics. Gang Leader for a Day is the fascinating full story of how Sudhir Venkatest managed to gain entree into the gang, what he learned, and how his method revolutionized the academic establishment.

    Joe Gere said he died on the afternoon his 12-year-old daughter Brenda disappeared. It was left to Brenda's mother Elaine to sustain her stricken family, search for her missing child, and pressure the authorities for justice. From the first minutes of the investigation, suspicion fell on Michael Kay Green, a steroid-abusing "Mr. Universe" hopeful, but there was no proof of a crime, leaving police and prosecutors stymied. Tips and sightings poured in as lawmen and volunteers combed the Cascades forest.

    Story

    The individual telling the story has a whistle for the letter s. I tried to suck it up anyways. I'm on chapter 10 and I don't know what in the world is going on. It hasn't gotten to the point. I'm done. I don't feel like taking this torture anymore. If I wanted to hear Grapes of Wrath, I would have chosen Grapes of Wrath. If you are an author , do not listen to the prologue and do not write true crime stories like this. please!

    Despite considerable press coverage and a lengthy trial, the full story of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints has remained largely untold. Only one man can reveal the whole, astounding truth: Sam Brower, the private investigator who devoted years of his life to breaking open the secret practices of the FLDS and bringing Warren Jeffs and his inner circle to justice.

    If you have ever read or known about Warren Jeffs and polygamy and and the Cults disgusting abuse and acceptance of Pedophilia, Sam Brower does and eloquent job of explaining & exposing the F LDS truth. You will want to stand up and fight for these children. It's a difficult road.

    In 2006, Forbes magazine ranked Tom Cruise as the most powerful celebrity in the world. With three Golden Globe awards, three Academy Award nominations, and 27 films with an average box office gross of nearly $100 million, People magazine's choice for the "Sexiest Man Alive" in 1990 is unquestionably one of the biggest movie stars of our time.

    Story

    A lot of misleading information. For example, he kept saying David Misgovich's name incorrectly. he also said that Tom Cruise daughter has brown eyes. She has blue eyes. there were many more misleading statements. Nonetheless, I have read several books on Scientology and saw the documentary going clear. I know a lot of information that didn't match up with all the things I have read and seen. however, it was a relatively interesting book.
