When the news breaks that Madeline Bassett is engaged to Gussie Fink-Nottle, Bertie's relief is intense. But when Madeline attempts to turn Gussie vegetarian, Bertie's instinct for self-preservation sends him with the steadfast Jeeves on another uproariously funny mission to Sir Watkyn Bassett's residence, Totleigh Towers.

In the Angler’s Rest, drinking hot scotch and lemon, sits one of Wodehouse’s greatest raconteurs. Mr Mulliner, his vivid imagination lubricated by Miss Postlethwaite the barmaid, has fabulous stories to tell of the extraordinary behaviour of his far-flung family... One of them concerns Wilfred, who lights on the formula for Buck-U-Uppo, a tonic given to elephants to enable them to face tigers with the necessary nonchalance. Its explosive effects on a shy young curate and then the higher clergy is gravely revealed.

Chapter 8 is the cradle of all American Action movies, in which they select the best of the best for the mission, normally a retired so and so, in this case the hero is Clarence Mulliner.

i strongly recommend reading this book, and i strongly recommend the narrator Jonathan Cecil

In a series of illuminating, often surprising experiments, MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking research, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities.

This book can be potential dangerous for ptsd "victims"
It is based on anecdotes from personal experiences, you won't learn anything useful from this book.

Please consult books based on science and experiments, I recommend reading a book on how your brain works.
Then read titles like predictable irrational, the hidden gorilla, you are not so smart, to get an insight in to the human mind,
and then dig up the latest science papers and results on treating ptsd.

What would have made Attention! This Book Will Make You Money better?

This book will only make the author and the publisher money, in fact this book will waste your time and money.

What could Jim F. Kukral have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Do not expect this book to make you any money, and do not expect that it will teatch you how to advertice online, there is no ideas about how to use search engines or anything like that at all.

Any additional comments?

The author promises that you will learn “How to Use Attention-Getting Online Marketing to Increase Your Revenue” but it does nothing of the kind, however it does tells you how to annoy publishers and how to try to sell stories to magazines. It doesn’t say the least about how to market anything online at all, it does tell you some boring stories about how great the author is and what wonderful “childish”ideas he thinks he gets,

The remarkable new field of evolutionary psychology takes a scientific approach to the evolution of human nature. Analyzing human behavior in relation to food, clothing, shelter, health care, and sex, Evolutionary Psychology proves an immensely stimulating exploration of human endeavor.

I had high hopes that this book would explain the basics about the subject, and maybe some examples of conditional thinking patterns or something similar, instead the book goes on and on and on about terminology and standards, and about this and that guy who made this and that theory about the subject, there is very little or close to nothing about the science of Evolutionary Psychology.

Insted I Would recommend that you Read “How We Decide- Johan Lehrer” and “Predictable Irrational- Dan Ariely” and then form your own opinions about evolutional psychology

One of the greatest treats in all world literature, this masterpiece from Mark Twain inspired a literary revolution. The novel offers both brilliant humor and tragedy as Huck and Jim explore the moral dilemmas of slavery and freedom. Huck, the narrator, is shrewd, ingenious, and literal; he reports on everything he sees, which allows the listener to experience the hypocrisy of "sivilization".

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer depicts the life of an imaginative, troublesome boy in the American West of the 1840s. The novel is intensely dramatic in its construction, taking the form of a series of comic vignettes based on Tom's exploits. These vignettes are linked together by a darker story that grows in importance throughout the novel - Tom's life-threatening entanglement with the murderer Injun Joe.
