Munich Playground Free ShippingFrom $57.52
Twenty-six-year-old American Ernest Pope arrived in Munich as a Reuters correspondent in in 1936. From then until he left in the summer of 1940 he saw first-hand the wild excesses of the Nazis. He wrote mainly for British newspapers-notably the Daily Express-but after September 1939 he could only supply material to the USA as lines to Britain were closed. As events hotted up he left for home just two months prior to America's entry to the war. Back in the safety of the United States he spent six months writing down what he had seen and who he had met. With wicked wit and superb style he ridicules the Nazis, showing them up for what they truly were-boorish and evil thugs. His narrative reads like a sensational novel, but for the poor inhabitants of Germany the unbelievable was in fact everyday life. Pope knew, saw or interviewed all the top Nazis and dozens of lower-level officials, including some of Hitler's security men. Fluent in Bavarian German dialect, Pope made many friends in Munich with citizens and officials alike. He heard jokes from Munichers that could get them thrown in a concentration camp and he poked fun at Nazis whenever he dared.Munich Playground is a 'must read' for anyone who wishes to understand what Hitler's Third Reich was really like.
The 80/20 Individual: The Nine Essentials of 80/20 Success at Work by Richard Koch - Audio Book on MP3 CDFrom $15
In this inspiring sequel to his classic bestseller The 80/20 Principle, Koch shows how to maximize success in your career and life by using the proven principle that 80 percent of changes in the world result from the most powerful 20 percent of actions and ideas. He’ll show how to use your own powerful “20 percent spike” – your most creative ideas and unique skills – to measure the amount of value you bring to your employer, clients or customers. For most people, there is a huge disparity between their intrinsic value and the compensation they receive for their efforts. The 80/20 Individual shows how to narrow that gap.“Koch writes with inspirational verve and assurance drawing on personal experience of building businesses. A useful motivational tool for appraising and leveraging talent in the organisation, his book yields some valuable lessons that any business can apply and will be of particular interest to the would-be entrepreneur.” — Choice of the Month, Director magazine
Gone, But Not Forgotten by Phillip M. Margolin - Audio Book on MP3 CDFrom $40.8
Darkness has fallen on the city of Portland, Oregon. One by one, the wives of affluent and respected men are vanishing from their homes. The only clues to their disappearance are a single black rose and a note that reads, “Gone, But Not Forgotten.” It is the rebirth of a horror that has already devastated a community at the opposite end of the country — and, as it did then, terror and death will follow. Defense attorney Betsy Tannenbaum is trapped in a nightmare as the shadows of a killer darken her world. And she will soon be risking everything she has and everyone she loves to defend a cold, powerful, and manipulating client who may be a victim . . . or a monster. “A bona fide ‘page-turner’ . . . There are those books that grab readers by the gut and won’t let go until the final word has been read inbreathless relief. . . . Gone, But Not Forgotten is just such a book.” -Seattle Post-Intelligencer
