DESCRIPTION:

A New York Times Notable Book: A policeman chases a falsely accused man on a wild journey around the world in this “utterly involving” novel (The Sunday Times).

When eight-year-old Nachiketa Bose first arrives in the East Bengali village of Lalpukur, he receives the name Alu–potato–for the size and shape of his extraordinary head. His uncle Balaram, the local schoolmaster and phrenology enthusiast, sends Alu to apprentice as a weaver, and the boy soon surpasses the skill of his master. But when a tragic bombing leaves Alu suspected of terrorism, he flees across India to Bombay and the Arabian Sea, followed all the way by the dogged policeman–and avid ornithologist–Jyoti Das.

From East Bengal to the Persian Gulf and North Africa, Amitav Ghosh’s wild and extraordinary novel “follows in the footsteps of magical realists like Gabriel García Márquez and Salman Rushdie” (The New York Times Book Review).

“A novelist of dazzling ingenuity.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“A Scheherezade effortlessly spinning tales within tales, the possessor of a strong narrative voice quite like no other.” —Newsday

“Ghosh’s writing soars, producing electric images.” —The Baltimore Sun

“A wonderful mix of magic and horror, wit and curiosity . . . Ghosh has really woven a fresh world for us to visit.” —Providence Sunday Journal

The Stoic Philosopher Within You: Uncover And Embody The Wisdom Of Seneca, Epictetus And Marcus Aurelius (Stoicism Mastery) by Thinknetic

The Stoic Philosopher Within You: Uncover And Embody The Wisdom Of Seneca, Epictetus And Marcus Aurelius (Stoicism Mastery)by Thinknetic

$0.99

Available through October 22 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

We all want to be kinder and thankful for what we have.

We all aspire to be happier, more successful, and free of negative emotions.
All we need to achieve our goals is a philosophy of life. Enter Stoicism.

What takes someone from good to great?

This question has haunted humanity for millennia, engaging the most learned and well-regarded people in finding its answer.

Today, we believe that the difference between failure and success, from average to elite, from dead-beat dropout to CEO is the mentality.

It might sound like an easy answer but a healthy mentality requires constant work, just like happiness and all the good things in life.

To help you achieve that wholesome mentality that takes you from good to great, we analyzed three of the greatest philosophers and broke down their observations on human nature, mentality, and happiness.

Seneca. Epictetus. Marcus Aurelius. Before these men became history’s greatest philosophers, they had insecurities just like you.

We’ve studied their lives, we’ve researched their teachings and philosophies of life, and we’ve extracted key concepts and actionable information for you to better digest Stoicism.

Here’s a bit of what you’ll get in this book:

  • How a lottery winner could’ve saved $113,000,000 by heeding the teachings of Seneca on prosperity
  • A crucial lesson Lance Armstrong learned from the Stoics and how you can apply it to meet your goals
  • How to find empowerment in the challenges you face and overcome the barriers you encounter (hint: your teachers are Seneca and the founder of No Barriers)
  • What it takes to accept what you cannot control and take charge of what you can control (mastering this will change your outlook on life)
  • The philosophical difference that made Joan of Arc a hero and martyr, and how you can embody her perspective for that beneficial change you want in your life
  • The Stoic cure to procrastination, and how self-love saves us from feelings of inadequacy, insecurity, and lack of self-confidence
  • Prince William’s way of putting himself into somebody else’s shoes to better understand life and what we can all learn from his experience
  • How to emulate Stephen Hawking and Marcus Aurelius’ views to “live the life of the mind” (side effects: increased focus, tranquility, and kindness)

…and much, much more!

You can do all the right things, check all the right boxes, cross every T and dot every I in life. Still, without the right mentality for success, you’ll cap out.

On the other hand, stoic principles can take you anywhere.

Just ask Angel Cruz, who after a series of arrests and criminal convictions, internalized a principle of Marcus Aurelius’s – we are responsible for our own virtue.

In prison, he began studying the law, appealed his own case, and was granted clemency. Today he runs his own legal practice and is a candidate for civil court judge.

Such a transformation is possible only with the right mindset.

That’s why we’ve distilled the greatest philosophers in history, down to the essentials for you.

This book is full of actionable stoic principles applicable to your professional and personal life.

DESCRIPTION:

***All books in the series read as standalones.

It’s a dog text dog world …

My name is Autumn Jones, and I just completed my master’s degree in Sociology–or as my mom calls it, ‘people watching.’ My dream is to go to Columbia to get my PhD. The only problem is that I’m totally broke, and New York City is bonkers expensive.

That’s why it’s a godsend when my older sister, Helen, offers to let me stay in her massive brownstone in Manhattan. Of course, the offer doesn’t come without strings. I have to help her coordinate the world’s most bizarre dog show. Seriously, it’s nuts.

I quickly find myself thrown into the crazy world of totally bored, highly-competitive rich women who will do anything to win the coveted title of Best in Show for their pampered pooches.

The only bright spot might be working with Jack Campbell (seriously, he has to be America’s hottest veterinarian). He would totally be my dream man if it weren’t for one annoying thing: it not long before he treats me like gum he scraped off his shoe.

With my haughty sister breathing down my neck, and a high-strung poodle (Celine Dion, if you can believe it) following me everywhere I go, I don’t have time to worry about what bug crawled up Jack’s butt.

Except, let’s be honest, I am worrying because every time we’re together, I’m drawn to him like a tick to a dog’s hindleg. Just as the show is kicking off, I find out Jack’s secret and realize there’s been a horrible mix-up.

Could Jack and I have a future after all, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

DESCRIPTION:

Modern scientists enjoy a revered public image.
And yet, somewhat oddly, modern scientists have created burgeoning global dangers.

Stocks of nukes, swarms of artificial pandemic viruses, and billions over billions of polluting machines are gloomy reminders.

Based on a well-known authority, we all face a scandalous risk of extinction: Fifty percent.
Others propose other nasty percentages, lower or higher, up to hundred percent.

Hence, this book explores some sober questions:

Have scientists shattered our survival chances?
Have scientists downplayed their hazardous achievements?
Have scientists championed false paradigms?
Have scientists promoted deceptive group thinking?
Have scientists sold our future?

Focusing on my future is getting harder and harder with the campus bad boy wanting all of me.

He’s not just bad either. There’s a darkness in him I don’t want in my life.

Yet, I’m drawn to him like a moth to the flame.

Messy black hair. Piercing green eyes. Sinfully sexy with rockstar appeal.

He’s the poster child for hot, broken, and rich.

Stay away ladies. This bastard is the most notorious student on campus.

His rich, ivy league heritage has everyone pre-judging him. And maybe they should.

But, as always with the worst guy in the room, there’s more to him than meets the eye.

I have plans for a big future, and they don’t include him.

He’s got other ideas though… Wicked, wicked plans.
