Wir leben in einer technologischen Sackgasse. Zwar suggeriert die Globalisierung technischen Fortschritt, doch das vermeintlich Neue, sind vor allem Kopien des Bestehenden. Peter Thiel, Silicon-Valley-Insider und in der Wirtschaftscommunity bestens bekannter Innovationstreiber ist überzeugt: Globalisierung ist kein Fortschritt, Konkurrenz ist schädlich und nur Monopole sind nachhaltig erfolgreich. Er zeigt: Wahre Innovation entsteht nicht horizontal, sondern sprunghaft - from Zero to One. Um die Zukunft zu erobern, reicht es nicht, der Beste zu sein. Gründer müssen aus dem Wettkampf des Immergleichen heraustreten und völlig neue Märkte erobern. Wie man wirklich Neues erfindet, enthüllt seine beeindruckende Anleitung zum visionären Querdenken. Ein Appell für einen Startup der ganzen Gesellschaft.

The Eyes of Faith

An emotion common to humankind is fear. Fear dogs our days, makes us lose sleep, ruins our relationships, and takes the joy out of living. The strongest, best defense against that emotion is to see through the eyes of faith. As such, Ben Stein brings you 500 ways to look at life in this way so that you can triumph over fear.Ben absorbed many of the positive thoughts within these pages at 12-Step meetings he has attended, he has applied them to his own life, and he's found that they work. They're simple, but extremely effective. For example: I do not know exactly why faith and surrender work. I just know that they do work. Say it to yourself and believe it: My life is a great place to be today. I would rather be me than anyone else, and that's saying something. Life is about waking up, breaking up, shaking up, making up . . . and meditation to keep the human spirit calm. There are two forms of worship: worship of God and worship of ourselves. Guess which kind works? Taken regularly, concepts such as these will make your life easier, calmer, and definitely more enjoyable.

Thankfully, the residents are safe and sound, including Ada’s mother. Administrative director Delia Preston, who appears to have jumped from the roof, isn’t so lucky. But when Delia’s death is ruled a homicide, suspicion spreads like wildfire that it was arson.

The best verse hasn't been rhymed yet, The best house hasn't been planned, The highest peak hasn't been claimed, The mightiest rivers aren't spanned; Don't worry and fret, faint-hearted, The chances have just begun For the best jobs haven't been started, The best work hasn't been done. 'THE BEST IS YET TO BE' Berton Braley The Author adds: Whatever has happened in your life Whom so ever you may have come across Which ever direction you may have taken Always look ahead, just glance at the back once or twice. or there is still time for you to make it. Always keep in mind and walk. 'THE BEST IS YET TO BE' When a person achieves a certain amount of fame, he thinks that everything is over and that he has come to the end of the road. He must realise that there is a lot more to do as 'THE BEST IS YET TO BE'. Winning or losing is not in the hands of fate, it is in our own hands. We can win if we think we can, no body can stop us from doing that.

This book traces the real life experiences and adventures of the author, who was raised in several small communities in West Texas. His family came from Germany to America in 1710, some 66 years before the American Revolution and 22 years before George Washington was born. They settled in the Hudson Bay area of New York, migrated to what is now Berks County, Pennsylvania (1723), the St. Louis area of Missouri (1852), the Black Hills of South Dakota (1878) and finally to Texas (1909). His great-grandfather was killed by the Indians on a cattle drive (1880) from Fort Reno, Wyoming to the ranch that he and his two brothers owned on the Belle Fourche River north of Deadwood, and is buried on Johns Avenue in Moriah Cemetery in Deadwood near the grave sites of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. A product of this strong pioneer background, the author recounts his own experiences and lessons learned from life and his colorful multiple careers, including: From birth in Winters, Texas (pop. 1000), being raised in Snyder, Texas (pop. 3000) to retirement in Houston, Texas, the nations fourth largest city. From early negotiations, during depression years at six years of age, of a deal with a rancher to sheer his pet goat and buy its wool for $1 per cutting to becoming a partner and president of a multiple-dealership retail automotive chain selling, for example, more Honda automobiles in Houston, Texas, than any other competitor, and subsequently negotiating the sale of its Houston dealerships to Roger Penske of United Auto Group. From naming his pet goat for his local Methodist minister in Winters to multiple audiences with Pope John Paul II in Rome and at his summer residence at Castel Gandolfo, receiving a treasured papal rosary and later a papal appointment as a Knight of The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, the only religious order under the protection of the Holy See, and membership therein considered one of the highest papal awards conferred upon clergy and laity alike. From the rank of Bobcat in the Cub Scouts to the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America. From salutatorian of the Class of 1948 at Snyder High School to Doctor of Jurisprudence, summa cum laude of the Class of 1958 at the University of Texas School of Law, with a pit-stop at the University of Texas School of Business, graduating in the Class of 1952 with a BBA degree majoring in public accounting. From beginning his legal career as an associate with his law firm in 1958 to obtaining partnership status within three years and then becoming a senior partner--included in the firms name--with membership on its three-person Executive Committee. He was President-Elect of his bar association at the time of his retirement from the active practice of law. From buck private in the USMC, entering OCS in 1952 during the Korean Conflict, to a company commander when separated from acive duty in 1954, obtaining the rank of captain. In addition to sharing the details of the authors adventures in these activities, the reader also has the opportunity to learn the key reasons and elements for success as the author discloses, based upon his experiences, achievements and leadership roles, HOW-TO-DO-IT philosophies, including: How to study law at a major law institution based upon a hands-on and time-tested approach. How to avoid costly legal and business mistakes based upon valuable insights on how juries think, illustrated from actual cases tried by the author--he lost only two of approximately 145 jury decisions during his nineteen-years in the active practice of law. How to acquire an insight into the art of negotiating business deals--acquisitions, mergers and other buy-sell transactions--as related by the author in the context of actual transactions.

There is knowledge, understanding, and spiritual illumination in this book never seen or written, ever, in the recorded commentary of biblical history. This is a phenomenon of the moment arising out of Words in Daniel's book that have been "closed up and sealed till the time of the end." The challenge confronting every Christian, regardless of his spiritual age or position, is in recognizing that there is much more to know about God than we know but to know more we must be willing to continually repent and change our minds when the Lord allows us to see a clearer vision of the Truth. Those who set aside every influence outside of the simple literal Words of inspired scripture receive knowledge and understanding unavailable from any other source. Theologians of every degree have never seen the thoughts and observations illuminated in the precept upon precept chapters of this book. If we allow the theologian, tradition, or the worldly church to control our mind, we will miss the blessing of simply believing the purity of the Word. God gave us a good mind and He expects us to use it to His glory by understanding the Words He wants us to hear. The In-Visible Truth is an immeasurable blessing, hidden in simplicity. Identifying doctrinal errors in the church along with seeing biblical specifics of RAPTURE carries the believer far beyond the significance of knowing when Jesus will come again. The Lord is right on time every time and it is now time that we understand many things that the He did not allow us to understand in the past. Be blessed. James Scott Rollo

Jaylene spent the majority of her life as a survivor buried in a multitude of secrets. She lived through intense sexual, emotional and domestic abuse that eventually culminated into a violent abusive lifestyle. After 20 years of living a life filled with hopelessness due to drug, alcohol, pornography, and sexual addictions, she made a choice during a church service that would change the rest of her life.

Jaylene has a passion to reach people with a message of hope, and to let others know they are valuable. Together, Jaylene and her husband, Mike, have experienced deep sexual addiction in their marriage, which resulted in a pattern of multiple affairs that would have ended most marriages. However, instead of ending their marriage, they turned to Christ, and through His strength, they made the ultimate decision to see their relationship through these tumultuous times. They have now been married 30 years, and today, they help other couples walk through the pain and victory of healing and restoring broken marriages. Jaylene has a real passion to help encourage women through women's retreats, a place where women can get away from the busyness of life and be reminded of who they are in Christ. She has 3 children and 12 grandchildren that she thanks God for each and every day, and she is so grateful that she can be a part of their lives. They are each a gift from God that she feels she does not deserve, and therefore, she never takes them for granted.

Die kraftvolle und inspirierende Autobiografie der ehemaligen First Lady der USA Michelle Obama ist eine der überzeugendsten und beeindruckendsten Frauen der Gegenwart. Als erste afro-amerikanische First Lady der USA trug sie maßgeblich dazu bei, das gastfreundlichste und offenste Weiße Haus zu schaffen, das es je gab. Sie wurde zu einer energischen Fürsprecherin für die Rechte von Frauen und Mädchen in der ganzen Welt, setzte sich für einen dringend notwendigen gesellschaftlichen Wandel hin zu einem gesünderen und aktiveren Leben ein und stärkte außerdem ihrem Ehemann den Rücken, während dieser die USA durch einige der schmerzlichsten Momente des Landes führte. Ganz nebenbei zeigte sie uns noch ein paar lässige Dance-Moves, glänzte beim „Carpool Karaoke“ und schaffte es obendrein auch, zwei bodenständige Töchter zu erziehen – mitten im gnadenlosen Blitzlichtgewitter der Medien. In diesem Buch erzählt sie nun erstmals ihre Geschichte – in ihren eigenen Worten und auf ihre ganz eigene Art. Sie nimmt uns mit in ihre Welt und berichtet von all den Erfahrungen, die sie zu der starken Frau gemacht haben, die sie heute ist. Warmherzig, weise und unverblümt erzählt sie von ihrer Kindheit an der Chicagoer South Side, von den Jahren als Anwältin und leitende Angestellte, von der nicht immer einfachen Zeit als berufstätige Mutter sowie von ihrem Leben an Baracks Seite und dem Leben ihrer Familie im Weißen Haus. Gnadenlos ehrlich und voller Esprit schreibt sie sowohl über große Erfolge als auch über bittere Enttäuschungen, den privaten wie den öffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist mehr als eine Autobiografie. Es enthält die ungewöhnlich intimen Erinnerungen einer Frau mit Herz und Substanz, deren Geschichte uns zeigt, wie wichtig es ist, seiner eigenen Stimme zu folgen.
