This book opens the door to a new way to be. The practical mindfulness meditative techniques described in this book, will help you get more done in less time. You will discover how to generate ideas off the top of your head and how to be lucky in life and business. Many people discover mindfulness as a way to deal with anxiety, depression, illness or stress. Some people use it to seek answers to the meaning to life, the universe and everything! Very few have discovered that mindfulness and meditation are tools that we can use for tangible outcomes. When we meditate each day for just 10 minutes, amazing transformations ensue. For sure, our health improves as we become less stressed. After just a week or so, the clarity of mind that it brings makes us luckier, more creative and more attractive in all senses of the word. After a month or so of practice, we discover that time takes on a different quality. Not only do we get more done in less time but external events seem to happen 'just in time'. People will notice a difference in you and may wonder if you've had cosmetic surgery as you become more radiant and youthful. You become capable of remaining calm while all around you may be in chaos. Customers begin to turn up out of the blue, just when you need them. Amazing ideas come to you right off the top of your head. Note that this audiobook contains 10 guided meditations. It is not a good idea to listen to them while driving, operating machinery or flying an airplane as they may make you fall asleep! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Evans.

This book, which will complement Ben Evans' previous work: Space Shuttle Columbia - Her Missions and Crews, is designed to cast minds back to a time when the Shuttle was truly the future: untarnished by disaster and bolstered by apparent success. It was a time when astronauts confidently expected to fly seven, eight or nine missions in their careers, when missions would be launched twice a month, when virtually anybody could travel into space and the fabled final frontier was drawing inexorably closer as each year passed. The book will tell the stories of Challenger's missions from the points of view of the astronauts, engineers and scientists who flew and knew her and the managers, technicians and ground personnel who designed her and nursed her from humble beginnings as a structural test article into one of the most capable Shuttles in NASA's service. It will combine technical esoterica with interviews, stories and anecdotes from the lifetime of this remarkable spacecraft. Challenger veterans, including Gordon Fullerton and Vance Brand, will describe their experiences and the differences between Challenger and her sister ships. The development of Challenger herself will be explored in detail, including her design, development, construction and preparation for missions.

Where were Venetian blinds invented? What color is the black box on a commercial airplane? Where did India ink originate?* Most of us know more than we think we know. We also think we know more than we actually do-because some of what we think we know simply 'ain't so.' We all harbor misconceptions that are accepted not only because they are popular but also because they make sense. It makes sense to believe, for example, that German chocolate originated in Germany rather than the truth: that German chocolate is so named because it was created by Sam German. It seems logical to believe that Mercury is the hottest planet because of its proximity to the sun, or that buttermilk contains butter, that Danish pastry is from Denmark, and that the boat race America's Cup was named after the United States of America. In Sorry, Wrong Answer, Rod Evans takes readers on a tour of misleading trivia, debunking commonly held assumptions and sharing surprising 'right' answers. *Answers: Japan; Orange; China
