In 2003, Coalition Forces led by America and Great Britain invaded Iraq. In the immediate aftermath the country was left lawless and in turmoil. The army had disintegrated and the police force was none existent. Much of the once powerful nation's infrastructure was smashed and destroyed while the rest of the country, after years of crippling sanctions, had fallen in to disrepair. Western construction companies moved in to begin the rebuilding of Iraq and all the while, the insurgency campaign gained momentum. Kidnappings and attacks on westerners were becoming more frequent and larger, in both scale and daring. The death toll was rising. Many professional soldiers, from all over the world, realised that a lot of money could be made on the ever growing second front of the Iraq war. They left in their droves to join the 'Gold Rush'. Soon, these privately funded soldiers found themselves caught in savage and brutal attacks and gun battles in the streets of Iraq on a daily basis. Running the Gauntlet: The Private War in Iraq is the no punches pulled true account of one man's experiences of the anarchy that reigned after the fall of Saddam.

In February 1942, three of the major ships of the German surface fleet – the battle-cruisers Scharnhorst and Gneisenau, and the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen – stormed out of the harbour at Brest on a dramatic voyage back to Germany. Passing through the straights of Dover, the ships faced everything the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy could throw at them. In a dramatic running fight, the ships managed to sail right under the nose of history's greatest maritime nation to reach the safety of Germany. The brilliantly executed operation brought great humiliation to the British – Hitler, who had developed the plan, had judged perfectly the reaction of the British command to the Channel Dash. This book tells the complete story of this great race, from the planning through to the repercussions of this unique Germany victory.

After the United States entered World War II in December 1941, three Cunard White Star liners, Aquitania, Queen Mary, and Queen Elizabeth, began the epic mission of transporting millions of GIs and British Empire troops across the North Atlantic. Without the protection of naval or air escort, these three ships formed the nucleus of the "Atlantic shuttle service" that relied heavily on speed and decoded Ultra intelligence to avoid potential U-boat traps. This gripping story is based on a secret journal kept by the author, a Royal Australian Navy lieutenant who served as the cipher officer aboard the Aquitania for fifty-three of her Atlantic crossings. His insider's account of the classified sailing conferences and massive logistics obstacles is complimented by light-hearted observations of wartime New York and London. This recounting of a little-known aspect of Battle of the Atlantic is an authoritative, well-illustrated volume that will appeal to everyone interested in one of the great planning feats of World War II.

A call to compassionate, awakened action alike Marianne Williamson's speech for Nelson Mandela in "A Return to Love". A ' brain bath ', this collection of three astute, inter-woven writings opens the human mind far beyond the reaches of analytical thinking. Inspired by processes of deep intuition, these treasures awaken us to the spirit within and the great mystery without, rekindling our memory of the 'puzzle' of which we are all a part. "Awakening Instinct" is a treatise on the vital need for humans to de-fossilize their latent powers - their 'Barometers of Time', lamps with which to light their path. "Running the Gauntlet" opens our hearts wide to experiencing our full potential and recognizing the 'gauntlet' we must run to fully embody it. "Windows Through Time" leaps into the unknown like a Vision Quest, bringing back great riches of conscious understanding.

Change your ATTITUDE. Change your BUSINESS. Change your FUTURE. What’s stopping you from making the changes your business needs to thrive? The most dangerous move in business is the failure to make a move at all. The history of business is filled with companies that are no more because their leaders refused to enact change when the writing was on the wall. Fear. Apathy. Lack of personal responsibility. These simple human flaws can turn a good company into a dead company. The writing on the wall has never been clearer than it is now—and marketing phenomenon Jeffrey Hayzlett is on a mission to make you see it, understand it, and heed it. Today’s business environment is so competitive and volatile that you can’t afford to be satisfied with business as usual. You must make changes now to compete in the future. Building on the principles and concepts in his first book The Mirror Test, Hayzlett takes you on a step-by-step journey to: Develop a “takeover mentality” for your business Summon the vision and courage necessary for driving change Sharpen the mental and emotional toughness to make strategic, lasting change Execute the right changes and deal with any disruptions they might cause Sustain and manage your company’s new-found momentum Change is already happening all around you—to products, to organizations, to entire industries. Eventually, it will happen to your company, whether from outside forces or your own initiative. You’ve always had the ability to institute positive change in your company. Now, with Running the Gauntlet, you have the inspiration and knowledge to make it happen and take control of it—instead of letting it control you. Praise for Running the Gauntlet "If the shoe fits, wear it! Jeff's advice fits any hard-charging business owner and leader." —Tony Hsieh, New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO, Zappos.com “I've seen a lot of sharks, and Hayzlett's advice comes like a Hammerhead. He can smell blood from a mile away, so when Hayzlett jumps in big waters, some sharks have to jump out.” —Daymond John, founder and CEO, FUBU, and star of ABC’s business show Shark Tank “If Jeff were a wine, it would be strong, sassy, and bold - just like his savvy business advice. This is a wine you want to open again and again.” —Gary Vaynerchuk, co-founder, Vaynermedia.com "Running the Gauntlet just played the Trump Card. This book is terrific!" —Ivanka Trump, EVP Trump Organization "It's time someone grabs you (and your business) by the shirt collar and shakes you! Strap on your chaps—business celebrity Jeff Hayzlett is going to take you on a rough-and-tumble ride that just might change the life of your business forever. Muster the courage and buy this book!" —Darren Hardy, Publisher, SUCCESS magazine, and bestselling author of The Compound Effect
