Whether you're a CEO, a parent, or merely a person who wants to make a difference, you probably wish you had more influence with the people in your life. But most of us stop trying to make change happen because we believe it is too difficult, if not impossible. We learn to cope rather than learning to influence. Influencer is a thought-provoking audiobook that combines the remarkable insights of behavioral scientists and business leaders with the astonishing stories of high-powered influencers from all walks of life.
"Great book! Very informative! Loved the research!"

For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters.
"Not the book for everyone"
15 thriller masters. 1 masterful thriller! Former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, within it's handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to the U.S. to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins.
"A rollicking thriller"
A stunning new approach to how individuals can not only change their lives for the better in the workplace, but also their lives away from the office, including (but not limited to) finding ways to improve one's working relationship with others, one's overall health, outlook on life, and so on. For example, why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year's Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can't people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial fitness, physical fitness, and so on?
"You can do this"

"Made for nice drive."
Fond remembrances of the life and work of Robert Anton Wilson, featuring Douglas Rushkoff, Antero Ali, Tiffany Lee Brown, David Jay Brown, Zac Odin, and Joseph Matheny.
The Korean CIA Director is killed by a North Korean assassin. Counterfeiting, drugs, and weapons of terror finance the North Korean government. Three Air Force Pararescuemen and a CIA Officer join with the South Korean 707th Brigade and a team of female assassins to form a team known only by President Reagan and CIA Director Casey, as "the Silent Six". Their task: the destruction of the North Korean gangster regime. "The Silent Six" is the ultimate Special Operations Team.
So often we want to make big changes in our lives, but lack the resolve to see them through. It seems we just can't summon the necessary willpower to take on these huge challenges - saving money, quitting smoking, increasing productivity, getting a promotion or pay rise, or losing weight. But here's the secret: willpower is not the answer.
"Read this book if you want change in your life."
Frank Boston, retired Air Force Pararescueman, experienced two separate incidents involving three back-to-back deaths early in his Air Force career. He concluded after the second incident that he has a strange power he calls nose-smell, a sort of mystic instinct of seeing who will die in a group of related deaths. He goes years without using his ability until a small girl drowns in a pond on the nearby Air Force base. He knows two more water-related deaths will soon follow.
"Water All Around"
David Joseph has established himself as one of the most unique military fiction writers of our time. Wielding all the power and magic of a master storyteller, Joseph delivers in Spooky Military Tales the stories the military does not want you to know. He introduces the origins behind the haunted KC-135 tanker that still flies, the aircraft that flew the remains to the US from Jonestown, the strange sightings at Arlington National Cemetery.
"Makes you wander?"
David Joseph's "The Great Hijacking", "Putin's Shoot-Down", and "The Bully" all bundled into one book titled Putin and MH370/MH17. A Boeing 777 takes off from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and rendezvouses behind an American tanker refueling fighters, thus falling in its radar. Chinese military computer hackers break into a key defense satellite, a North Korean cargo ship drops a black box into the Indian Ocean, and a home flight simulator has traces of island landings in the Indian Ocean. All the events combine to produce a perfect storm for "The Great Hijacking".
"Cool Military Stories"
The Bully & Other Stories is a Cold War short story classic. One month after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, a HH-3, Jolly Green rescue helicopter is sent on a mission north of Iceland to rescue a Russian with a head injury off a fishing trawler. Pararescuemen Sam Young is lowered on the deck of the trawler and encounters the unexpected - Russian submarines appear and attempt intimidation - but in the end the entire Soviet Northern fleet is the one intimidated.
"Terrible reading but great stories."
For many years, I wanted to write a story about the mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana, particularly the role of the Air Force in airlifting the remains back to the United States. I refused to write about it because I thought anything connected with Jonestown should entail one sentence: Guyana was a horrible, horrible event, and the US military did gruesome things they should never, never had done.
