Twelve-year-old Olivia Hales has a foolproof plan for winning a million dollars so that she and her little sister, Berkeley, can leave behind Sunny Pines Trailer Park. But first she has to: · Fix the swamp cooler and make dinner and put Berkeley to bed because her mom is too busy to do all that · Write another letter to her dad even though he hasn’t written back yet · Teach Berk the important stuff, like how to make chalk drawings, because they can’t afford day care and Olivia has to stay home from school to watch her · Petition her oddball neighbors for a circus spectacular, because there needs to be something to look forward to at dumb-bum Sunny Pines · Become a super-secret spy to impress her new friend Bart · Enter a minimum of fourteen sweepstakes a day. Who knows? She may already be a winner! Olivia has thought of everything . . . except herself. Who will take care of her when she needs it?

Winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences Richard Thaler challenges the received economic wisdom by revealing many of the paradoxes that abound even in the most painstakingly constructed transactions. He presents literate, challenging, and often funny examples of such anomalies as why the winners at auctions are often the real losers—they pay too much and suffer the "winner's curse"—why gamblers bet on long shots at the end of a losing day, why shoppers will save on one appliance only to pass up the identical savings on another, and why sports fans who wouldn't pay more than $200 for a Super Bowl ticket wouldn't sell one they own for less than $400. He also demonstrates that markets do not always operate with the traplike efficiency we impute to them.

Fantasy football has become one of my favorite pastimes of tens of millions of American males, and there are literally hundreds of websites, books, magazines, and television shows designed to tell you everything you need to know about the subject. Almost everything, that is. Anyone who has ever tried to find a definitive way to rank players for their fantasy draft or worse, find dollar values for auction-style leagues - knows the difficulty of finding a system that works for their leagues. Because leagues vary according to size, rules, and scoring systems, a player who may be a valuable commodity in one league may be below average in another. Therefore, the "one size fits all" rankings or valuations that you see most places can be useless. And even if those rankings were designed specifically for leagues like yours, values and rankings are normally assigned in a subjective manner, without any mathematical evidence to support the author's case. The Winner's Guide to Drafting a Fantasy Football Team has a timeless solution to the problem of finding customized and accurate rankings and dollar values that work for any fantasy league. Author Chris Lee explains what constitutes value, and how that value can be translated to rankings and dollar values for any league, in a common-sense way that removes the guesswork that's at the foundation of most ranking and dollar valuation systems. Simply put, if you know what kind of statistics a player is going to produce in the coming year, you'll know where to draft him or how much to pay for him at your draft. This proven system has helped Chris win many leagues. By following the steps in this book, you can build a spreadsheet that will help you win yours as well..

While Arin fights to keep his country's freedom from the hands of his enemy, he suspects that Kestrel knows more than she shows. As Kestrel comes closer to uncovering a shocking secret, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. Lies will come undone, and Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them in this second book in the breathtaking Winner's trilogy.

What makes a winner? Why do some succeed both in life and in business, and others fail? And why do a few individuals end up supremely powerful, while many remain powerless? Are men more likely to be power junkies than women?The 'winner effect' is a term used in biology to describe how an animal that has won a few fights against weak opponents is much more likely to win later bouts against stronger contenders. As Ian Robertson reveals, it applies to humans, too.Success changes the chemistry of the brain, making you more focused, smarter, more confident and more aggressive. The effect is as strong as any drug. And the more you win, the more you will go on to win. But the downside is that winning can become physically addictive.By understanding what the mental and physical changes are that take place in the brain of a 'winner', how they happen, and why they affect some people more than others, Robertson answers the question of why some people attain and then handle success better than others. He explains what makes a winner - or a loser - and how we can use the answers to these questions to understand better the behaviour of our business colleagues, employees, family and friends.

Saat melihat kata-kata itu saya langsung tertarik untuk menjadikannya judul buku saya. Ya, siapapun bisa sukses dan menang, bagaimana pun kedaan kita saat ini.

Jangan biarkan tragedi masa lalu Anda mempengaruhi hari depan Anda. Bangkit dan singkirkan semua alasan itu supaya Anda dapat melihat Tuhan semesta alam menyertai Anda dalam setiap kesulitan.
