Tender Branson, the last surviving member of the so-called Creedish Death Cult, is dictating his life story into the flight recorder of Flight 2039, cruising on autopilot at 39,000 feet somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. He is all alone in the airplane, which will crash shortly into the vast Australian outback. But before it does, he will unfold the tale of his journey from an obedient Creedish child and humble domestic servant to an ultra-buffed, steroid-and-collagen-packed media messiah. This is author Chuck Palahniuk at his deadpan peak, a mesmerizing, unnerving, and hilarious satire on the wages of fame and the bedrock lunacy of the modern world. 1. Language: English.

The Wright Brothers initially underestimated the difficulties involved in flying, and they were apparently surprised by the fact that so many others were working on solving the ´´problem of human flight” already.Decades before their own historic plane would end up in the National Air and Space Museum, Wilbur and Orville asked the Smithsonian for reading materials and brushed up on everything, from the works of their contemporaries to Leonardo da Vinci. Undeterred by the work and the fact that several would-be pioneers died in crashes trying to control gliders, the Wright Brothers tested out gliding at Kitty Hawk in North Carolina for several years, working to perfect pilot control before trying powered flight. In December 1903, the brothers had done enough scientific work with concepts like lift to help their aeronautical designs, and they had the technical know-how to work with engines. On December 17, the brothers took turns making history’s first successful powered flights. The fourth and final flight lasted nearly a minute and covered nearly 900 feet. The Wright Flyer I had just made history, and minutes later, it would be permanently damaged after wind gusts tipped it over; it would never fly again. A decade later, aircraft appeared in the skies over the battlefields of World War I, but they did not represent a complete novelty in warfare either, at least not during the early months of World War I. While airplanes had never before appeared above the field of war, other aerial vehicles had already been in use for decades and balloons had carried soldiers above the landscape, for centuries, to provide a high observation point superior to most geological features. The French used a balloon for this purpose at the Battle of Fleurus in 1794. By the American Civil War, military hydrogen balloons saw frequent use, filled from wagons generating hydrogen from iron filings and sulfuric acid. The balloonist Th 1. Language: English.

Henry Ford´s impact on industry, business, and society continues to drive us to reach for seemingly impossible goals. He turned an automobile into an industry, transformed the world of farming with a tractor, and launched the airplane into a new era of mass production. Ford didn´t just revolutionize transportation, he completely transformed the way we work, the way we create, and the way we live. He achieved the impossible equation of cutting the cost of his product in half yet improving its quality and reliability and even doubling the wages and standard of living for his people. Ford also invested in the future by equipping people who had no perceivable future. That included educating and training orphans and at-risk youth at The Henry Ford School for Boys. This new version of Today and Tomorrow features an interview with 88-year-old Phil Morgan who was one of those boys, and one of the few people still alive who actually knew Henry Ford. Today and Tomorrow is like Ford´s assembly line, churning out great achievers and forming success after success for nearly a century. It´s a timeless reminder that the work ethic and inspiration that still bring us success today can be multiplied and imprinted on the moldable steel of our innovators of tomorrow. Now you can finally enjoy this newly annotated version of the vintage 1926 Henry Ford classic adapted for today´s digital devices. Introduced by author, businessman, and internationally recognized expert on lean manufacturing, Paul A. Akers, Today and Tomorrow by Henry Ford is timeless wisdom in a modern digital age. Available in print and digitally as well. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lewis Arlt. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/115256/bk_acx0_115256_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
