Japan is a single nation, but its origins are so old, and often, so fragmented, that unified mythology and folklore can be difficult to point to. Still, there are some key texts, tales, and characters we can focus on which will give us a pretty good sense of Japanese mythology. In this audiobook, you'll discover stories of mystery, horror, and romance while simultaneously learning about the Japanese culture.

I've tried learning both ways, with a teacher and without. If you are a self-learner, this book will work for you. Explanations are in English so it's great if you're a beginner.

Three comprehensive manuscripts in one audiobook. This audiobook is intended for people who want to know something about the fundamentals of bookkeeping and accounting without necessarily becoming a certified bookkeeper or accountant. Many people are in this position; small business owners, employers, employees, business owners, stockholders, investors, and many, many more. Most of these folks do not need a deep understanding of bookkeeping or accounting; they just need to learn what it is and how they should be using it.

There are helpful hints and tips throughout the book are great as well as the visual aids such as charts and tables to see the actual accounting process. I also found the Valuing Your Business section and balance sheet to be helpful in the event of selling or liquidation of a business.

The narrative of the Korean War in the West, and particularly in the United States, tells the tale of a conflict between two global superpowers and competing ideologies in a far-flung corner of the globe. The reality is that the wheels of motion that drove the country to war in 1950 began turning long before American boots set foot on Korean soil. The heart of the conflict was a civil war between a population arbitrarily divided by colonization and the global geopolitics at the end of the Second World War.

I would've recommended the use of more commonly used terms in several places in the book. I'd still like to think this book was written for me. I served in Korea during the 80's but never knew any of the pre-war or post-war history. Thank you for such deep insight!

Gallup's List of Widely Admired People of the 20th Century places President John F. Kennedy in the third slot, behind Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mother Teresa. Needless to say, President Kennedy's name is one that will not soon be forgotten. Many people will simply recall him as the handsome president who reigned for a short while before his unfortunate death at the hands of an assassin in Dallas, Texas. They may recall he was the youngest president to have been sworn into the presidential office or he dealt with issues such as the Cuban Missile Crisis.

I know that the copper is a super conductor but I really haven't the idea that you can use copper to create a Flux Antenna which can be use to control human mind. I visited the website given by the author about Flux Antenna and it helped me as well. This book is handy and packed with useful information.
