EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Blasting clichéd career advice, the contrarian pundit and creator of Dilbert recounts the humorous ups and downs of his career, revealing the outsized role of luck in our lives and how best to play the system. Scott Adams has likely failed at more things than anyone you’ve ever met or anyone you’ve even heard of. So how did he go from hapless office worker and serial failure to the creator of Dilbert, one of the world’s most famous syndicated comic strips, in just a few years? In How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big, Adams shares the game plan he’s followed since he was a teen: invite failure in, embrace it, then pick its pocket. No career guide can offer advice that works for everyone. As Adams explains, your best bet is to study the ways of others who made it big and try to glean some tricks and strategies that make sense for you. Adams pulls back the covers on his own unusual life and shares how he turned one failure after another—including his corporate career, his inventions, his investments, and his two restaurants—into something good and lasting. There’s a lot to learn from his personal story, and a lot of entertainment along the way. Adams discovered some unlikely truths that helped to propel him forward. For instance: • Goals are for losers. Systems are for winners. • “Passion” is bull. What you need is personal energy. • A combination of mediocre skills can make you surprisingly valuable. • You can manage your odds in a way that makes you look lucky to others. Adams hopes you can laugh at his failures while discovering some unique and helpful ideas on your own path to personal victory. As he writes: “This is a story of one person’s unlikely success within the context of scores of embarrassing failures. Was my eventual success primarily a result of talent, luck, hard work, or an accidental just-right balance of each? All I know for sure is that I pursued a conscious strategy of managing my opportunities in a way that would make it easier for luck to find me.”

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book leads you through Afghani religion, politics, and culture in different times of history. This country has always been invaded by surrounding countries, as well as super powers. However, Afghans are free people, who are fond of freedom, with a free hospitable spirit and have always pushed the invaders back to their place. Afghanistan has its own tradition of food, sport and music, which are now world re known. Afghanistan is also a beautiful country with mountains, rivers, and lovely valleys, which unfortunately are over-shadowed by the politics. This book gives you information about the problems, that Afghanistan has and why they are difficult to resolve, despite a lot of help from other countries and international organizations. The political competition from neighboring countries and super powers may cause Afghanistan to either move ahead quickly or be destroyed to the ground. Almost all of the weapons come to this country from different parts of the world. None are made in Afghanistan. Afghan people are mostly making carpets, handicrafts, furniture, clothes, shoes, coats, and jewelery, and etc. not weapons. Most of the people were and are farmers, not soldiers. This books is a call for people to work shoulder to shoulder, in order to bring peace and prosperity to this beautiful country. It is a cry to work together with the noble people of Afghanistan to stop killing, torturing, and suffering in this part of the world.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Body Piercing Saved My Life is the first in-depth journalistic investigation into a subculture so large that it's erroneous to even call it a subculture: Christian rock. Christian rock culture is booming, not only with bands but with extreme teen Bibles, skateboarding ministries, Christian tattoo parlors, paintball parks, coffeehouses, and nightclubs,encouraging kids to form their own communities apart from the mainstream. Profiling such successful Christian rock bands as P.O.D., Switchfoot, Creed, Evanescence, and Sixpence None the Richer, as well as the phenomenally successful Seattle Christian record label Tooth & Nail, enormous Christian rock festivals, and more, Spin journalist Andrew Beaujon lifts the veil on a thriving scene that operates beneath the secular world's radar. Revealing, sympathetic, and groundbreaking, Body Piercing Saved My Life (named for a popular Christian rock T-shirt depicting Christ's wounds) is a fascinating look into the hearts and minds of an enormous, and growing, youth culture.
