First, I expected an example of comic performance, not a boring lecture. I was looking for a step-by-step tips on the way to become a stand-up comedian, and I didn't find any piece of information I would consider valuable.

In The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Amy mines her past for stories about her teenage years, her family, relationships, and sex and shares the experiences that have shaped who she is - a woman with the courage to bare her soul to stand up for what she believes in, all while making us laugh. Down to earth and relatable, frank and unapologetic, Amy Schumer is one of us: She relies on her sister for advice, still hangs out with her high school pals, and continues to navigate the ever-changing boundaries in love, work, and life.

Started listening by accident, and listened through the very end, including all acknowledgments. My wife was very puzzled : "How a 65 years old engineer ended with this so girlish book"? Not sure myself. But I don't remember to read recently anything so honest and well presented. Thank you, Amy!

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.

Writing and self-publishing on Amazon can sound like a dream, but it's much simpler than you think. With the publishing tools Amazon has available - Kindle, CreateSpace, ACX - it would be easy to get overwhelmed, though. Still, self-publishing is an easy way to get your content out to the most listeners as quickly as possible on a globally distributed platform in various digital, paperback, hard cover, audio CD, and downloadable audiobook formats.

Spain has played a unique and essential role in Western civilization. To understand the unfolding of Spain's epic history is to come to terms with one of the West's great cultures, and to grasp its enduring presence and impact on the world stage. In these 24 accessible lectures, Professor Salisbury presents a broad and enthralling panorama of Spanish history, covering the centuries from the first prehistoric settlement of the peninsula to Spain's 20th century civil war.

Preparing my trip with my friends to Spain, I decided to learn something about its history not to look absolutely illiterate, next to my very educated friends. So, I was ready for a boring facts listing, which I have to just swallow, like a medicine. Instead I was blown out of water by this brilliant and catching story, which I couldn't stop listening! All the facts are there, but it is told with personal touch, including kid's impressions, like your close friend would do, sharing last trip... Thank you, Mrs. Salisbury so much! I already Googled your other books, and you do have a big fan of you here, in San Diego!

Sure, I know you've heard it all before, just pick the right niche, write good articles, sprinkle affiliate links everywhere, and you are sure to make a profit. Well, have I got news for you! That's not what the big money bloggers are doing! Though that's not to say there isn't some truth in putting affiliate links in your blog, but just sprinkling them around and hoping someone clicks on them is the wrong strategy entirely.

In keeping with his trademark style, Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno, interweaves codes, science, religion, history, art, and architecture in this new novel. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions - and the earthshaking discovery that will answer them.
